From the Western Australian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 May 1831

From the. Western Australian Chronicle. Tbo tribes between the Mun ay Estuary and the ' Mountains bury theirdead in the following: singu- lar manner :-The grave is dug always so that th« bead is to the S. W. and of the form hereafter shewn. 'I he mounds at each end are formed with attention, and are larger than the centre. The spear of the deceased is placed projecting two or three feet above the surface ; the hands are folded over the breast ; strong poles covered with batk so as not to touch the body ; the earth is theo placed over. Men's names in the district between the Southern Murray Estuary and the sea coast :-Quamba, Wamba, Hinda, Minda, Mind, Mona, Marene, Mi thia, Wondon. The gentleman from whom we derived this in- formation was frequently among the natives on the coast south of the Murray River. He some- times visited them on horse-back,-and sometimes in his boat, which they seemed to take great plea- sure in using, and would assist to row it.. One had courage to get on h...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-Some weeks back you mentioned in your Journal that a parly of the Chain Gang were forthwith to commence Macadamizing^ Liverpool-street, and if I recollect aright, j ou stated that they would commence on Monday next, which, to the best of my recollection, would be some four weeks since. Now, Mr. Editor, you are doing an injustice to your readers to buoyance them up with expectations not to be re- alized, and you hayo no right to make them the sport of your fantasies. You know, as well as I do, that it was all hum- bug of yours, and that nothing of the kind was in contem J plat ion. -I am, Sir, your bumble servant, IRONSTONE.

REAL SORROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 May 1831

REAL SORROWS Written by the late Dr. Halloran, of Sydney, just previous fer previous to leaving England-October 1818. He best can paint them who has felt them most!"     'Tis not the rude obstreporous grief   That rudely clamours for relief; 'Tis not the querulous lament In which impatience seeks a vent ; 'Tis not the soft pathetic style That aims our sorrows to beguile,   That can to truth's keen eye impart - The real sorrow of the heart. No ; 'tis the tear in secret shed Upon the starving orphans' head ; The sigh that will not be represt Breathed on the faithful partner's breast;     The bursting heart, the imploring eye, To Heaven upraiseded in agony, With starts of desultory prayer,   While hope is quenching in despair ; The throbbing forehead's burning pain, While frenzy's fiend usurps the brain. These are the traits no heart can borrow-     Of genuine suffering ...

i To the Editor of the Colonial Times.

Now, Mr. Editor, I deem this indifferenoe evinced by yon to the communications of your correspondents any thing but courteous or elegant, and to convince you of the evil con- sequences resulting from a system at once so palpably lepre heusible, I shall lieie, through the medium of y our own Journal, lake the liberty of giving publicity to an incident that re- cently fell under my own immediat...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-I beg, through the medium of your columns to con tradict some gross misrepresentations (by whom furnished I do not kuow,) and an indirect attack on me in your report of the trial of Gidney and others at the Quarter Sessions.-     There was no disturbance whatever in ,the skittle ground, nor were the constables beaten there, or, as you state, driven from my house. The only disturbance I heard was momen- tary, and ended almost as soon as began ; and so far from my not interfering, I received a severe blow in endeavouring to quell it. I could, if necessary, refer to some respectable in- dividuals then in my house who could corroborate what I state. Perhaps I should state that I had prevented Lee gambling   in the course of the afternoon, and in the presence of several gentlemen prevented him. -I am. Sir, your obedient servant, J. H. Buscombe.   Richmond, April 29, 1831.

In the first place, had we not witnessed that so it was, we would never have imagined that, after a number of Gentlemen had signed a requisition to the Sheriff, and à meeting had beei« consequently called, that the business of the day was to be left to chance, either by the call of pleasure, or any other cause, but that the least that was due, ns well to the Sheriff as the public, would be the attendance of a greater number than merely three of the requisitioning. Yet so it was ; and if any thing will, we presume this will, cure the folly of calling public meetings. "Had it been otherwise, however-had all the gentlemen who signed ...

IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF LOUDS.-Monday. Dec. IS.

Of the la ter he requested to know wlie'tlier it was true that the place of Clerk of the Council had been rilled Ujj ; and, if the latter, whether ii was possi- ble that, in the short inlet val between their resignation of office and their absolute retirement, they had granted any new pensions?-The Marquis of Lansdowne replied that it was true Government had confirmed the appoint- ment of Mr Bathurst lo the office in question, but at a reduced salarv of £1 200,~instead. of £9,500 a-yeur ; and the Duke of Wellington delended the peiiMons to two gentlemen who were his private Secretaries, on the ground that no other provision had beru m «de for them --a reason which left no room for further coramt nt.

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 11 May 1831

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. Accounts received on Monday state, that all the Polish troops are in high rebellion, a Provisional Government is already appointed at Warsaw, and the Archduke Constantine, who was in the city, and had made some efforts to check the first movements, found himself unable to make head against them, and had retreated to the Vistula, with all the force which remained faithful to him, four regiments of Russians. The struggles which preceded this retreat, seem, judging by the result, to have been most serious and sanguinary. Four Generals on the Imperial side are stated to have been killed, one of whom was the Minister of War for the kingdom of Poland. The whole machinery of the Russian Government had disappeared from that ancient capital, with the Cossacks, and it was doubtful whether they would be able to reach the frontier, for they were hotly pursued by the Polish troops, headed by a native officer, named Chlopieki, who had ac- quired a reputation in the Spanish w...

Moodie Esq.   James Robinson stood charged with the commission of a most aggravated assault upon Stephen Roach, by beating him, and shooting and wounding him, by discharging a gun loaded with small stones. The prisoner was a constable, sent with two other consta- bles in charge of a party of 14 convicts, to convey them to Bridgewater, and very improperly went into a public-house on the road. Stephen Roach sworn.-I am a constable, and was with the prisoner and another constable, taking charge of 15 pri- soners to Bridgewater on the 27th October. Peel the consta- ble came after as and gave us the warrant ; he asked for Ro- binson; I said he was behind; he told me to give the warrant to Robinson ; when he came up I gave it him ; we halted at O'Brien's Bridge, and Robinson and me loaded our fire arms with small pebble stones, not having slugs with us.

Our contemporary, the Tasmanian, frequently boasts of his predictions being fulfilled upon po- litical subjects ; but he forgets how we set lum to lights upon the wool question, which we consider of the greatest impôt tance to the Co- ony. It is nitli the utmost pleasure we find, by the received accounts, per Funekal and America, that Tasmanian wool holds even a higher comparative price in the London market than does that of Australia. We have been fa- voured by Mr. Walter Buchanan, with No. 10 of that gentleman's Price Current, bearing date 24th December last, extracts from which are elsewhere given. The price of Tasmanian wool is there quoted as follows: Best.".1j. 10 to 3». Ad. Middling. 1«. 3d. to li. lOrf. Inferior.Oj. lid. to Is. 5c?. This cannot fail of being very g...
