[ADVERTISEMENT.] The Sales by Auction advertised to take place oh Thursday nexfc (Mr.. L. Samson, Auctioneer,) it will be seen, are postponed until the following Wednes- day, the 7th September. \ In the early days of the Colony, it was not un- usual to hear of persons losing their way within the at present cleared precincts of the town; and we now occasionally hear of parties strayhig into the bush to no great distance, and finding them- selves bewildered in the monotinous forest. Two gentlemen-one of whom has lately arrived in the Colony, the other one of our oldest settlers-were rescued from a delimma of this nature by the time- ly aid and direction of a person who was casually passing and heard their calls. They had been lost for upwards of three hours, and, in order to keep a straight line, which they supposed was the right one, had passed through several swamps, and were in no very enviable condition to spend the night in the bush, to which alternative their minds were made up,...
MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 August 1836
MAGISTRATES COURT. Before ¡V. H. Mackie, Esq., and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom. Thomas Blakey, messenger, on the information and complaint of the Hon. G. F. Moore, Esq., was charged with stealing four shirts, the property of the said gentleman. Mr. Moore stated that, within the last two or three months, he had missed from his residence at Perth, several shirts and a pair of shoes. That having heard that Blakey had been seen severa! times ]'». and about his residence during his absence (he having no business there), he suspected him, and applied for a search warrant, which was exe- cuted. He had examined the shirts now pi o luced, and could swear that four of them (three cotton and one linen) are his properly. Thomas Hunt, constable, executed the search warrant. He found, at the residence of the pri- soner Blakey, the shirts and part of a salted leg of ipork, now produced. The prisoner was in the house at the time. He at first said he could give a satisfactory account as to where he had...
To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." WESTERN AUSTRALIAN MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 August 1836
To the Editor oj " The Perth Gazette." WESTERN AUSTRALIAN MISSION. Sir,-In your Journal of the 13f.h instant, you have very kindly alluded to the auspicious opening made by the Western Australian Mission. The Word of God, indeed, has not bt;en preached in vain. The Guildford people have received it in love ; and, as there is no Court house here in which to preach, it U to the honor of the inha- bitants of Guildford and its vicinity, that they have willingly and cheerfully offered assistance, according to their means, in building a place of Worship, which will serve also for a School- and His Excellency the Governor has most kindly given us a piece of ground on which to place our erection. With regard to the " steps to be taken for the instruction of the Natives, which have not yet transpired," I can only state, that my time has been entirely occupied with the Europeans, who, it grieves me to say, stand nearly as much in need of religious instruction as the Natives; and my exertions ...
To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 August 1836
To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-In consequence of Mr. Alfred H. Stone, the Registrar Clerk of the Civil Court Bill against John Oxley being published in your paper last week, in which bill my name is set forth, I find it necessary to offer a few observations on the suhj ct-discarding aJ supposition of their being attended with any effdct beyond publicity. I furnished a bill to Mr. Oxley, amounting to upwards of six pounds, for business done for him. j He handed me a counter bill amounting to 3/. 10s., and here the matter, I believe, would have rested, but Lr some meddling interference. I received, however, a notice, in the hand writing of the said Registrar CLrk, to attend at his office to tux my bill, which I complied with ; when, notwithstand- ing every remonstrance, my bill was taxed under the amount of Oxley's, and an action afterwards instituted against me for the balance,-although I cautioned the party that my bul was not taxed as I considered it ought to have been...
BRITISH NORTH AMERICAN COLONIES. (From the Westminster Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 August 1836
BRITISH NORTH AMERICAN COLONlES.j (From the Westminster Review) It is no wonder that, under the press- ure oí circumstances, the House of As semby of Lower Canada should have had recourse at length to the constitutional expedient of stopping the supplies " The unquestionable tact is, that the Ca- nadians have at the present moment more to complain of than the thirieen United States had before matters came to a crisis between them and the present slate. * * * « * What are remedies for the dissatis- faction which now prevails in the British North American colonies, and which is just as likely to be quelled Ly the tem- porising policy of Lord Melbourne's cabinet, as the disaffection oí the old co- lonies was by the temporising policy of that of Lord North? The remedial measures seem obvious and easy, and nothing is wanting but the disposition to adopt and cairy them into effect, with spirit, determination, and liberality. The Imperial Pai lia ment must proceed with- out loss of tin. &a...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 1836 "Neither conscience nor taste will suffer me to fight one class or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground of undeviating panegyric." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 August 1836
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 1836 -000 u Neither conscience nor taste will suffer me to fight one clasa or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground of undeviating panegyric." A plan has at length been set on foot which appears likely to lead to the es- tablishment of a whale-fishery out oí this port, in the course of the next season. Captain Coulton, of the Truelove, who has had considerable experience in the fisheries, having visited our port at the proper season for whaling, has had an opportunity of judging how far such a speculation would be profitable, and, in confirmation of his opinion, purposes taking as many shares as will be allowed io one individual. To Captain Coulton, if the scheme is adopted, the colony will be indebted for the commencement of this valuable source of traffic, We do not feel ourselves at liberty, at present, to give publicity to the nature of the arrangements in progress, as they may be conside...
RUSSIAN INTREPIDITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 August 1836
RUSSIAN INTREPIDITY. &nbsp; &nbsp; In Heath's Picturesque Annual for 1836, the author gives the following account of an exploit which will illustrate a marked point in the Russian character, that of cool, and, at the same time, rash intrepidity. It beats the ascent of Pompey's pillar by the English sailors all to nothing :- An anecdote connected with this church, and not yet known, I believe, out of Russia is too remarkable to be omitted. It places in a conspi- cuous point of view that spirit of almost absurd daring which is one of the peculiaiities of the national character ; and in fact the incident could not, I think, by possibility, have occurred in any other country. The spire, which fades almost into a point in the sky, is, in reality, terminated by a globe of considerable dimensions, on which a figure stands, supporting a large cross. This object, leas respected by the weather than perhaps his high character deserved, fell into disrepair; and suspicions were e...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette:' Sir,-You favored us some time since with the Printer's Love,-What do you think of Jack Tar's and the Soldier's. THE SAILORS LOVE. The Sailor loves in every clime. From Hindostán to Dover Brave Jack loves grog at ev'ry time, And swears the round world over. Sailors love ladies in their prime, But ev'ry Jack a rover : Anchor a«} oak-poor Susan's left behind, And the next sea-port mourns a love as kind. THE SOLDIER'S LOVE. A flask of brisk Champagne, and Claret after; He loves bright scarlet, gold, and Royal Blue ; A Soldier's life he loves, sweet girls and laughter ; But one-more charming than the rest-and true, The name-perhaps I may disclose hereafter But no-that name shall be alone for me-not you, Lov e, war, and wine, comprise the Soldier's story ; His King-and honor at the cannon's mouth his glory.

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1836. -ooo " Neither conscience nor taste will suffer me to fight one class or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground of undeviating panegyric" The arrangements alluded to by us last week for the formation of a'Colonial' Whaling establishment on this coast, have been completed during the week, and every necessary preparation, it is in- tended, shall be made in time to bring the scheme into operation at the com- mencement of the next season, which, it may be considered, is about the begin- ning of June.

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 September 1836
EXTRACTS. Reform of Criminal Law.-How noble and pure was the ambition of Sir Samuel Romilly we may learn from the following beautiful passages, where he has explained the motives by which he was actuated in Ms proposed reforms of the criminal law. " It was «nji, " «aid he, "from light motives ; it was from no fcudsW étions of benevolence, that I have ventured to wp^e. *: any alteration in the criminal law of Englanu. It lias originated in many years' reflection, and in the long established belief that a mitigation in the severe penalties of our law will be one of the most effectual modes to preserve and advance the humanity and justice for which this country is so eminently distinguished. Since the last session of parliament, I have re- peatedly reconsidered the sebject : I am more and more firmly convinced of the strength of the foundation upon which I stand ; and if even 1 had doubted my own conclusions, I cannot forget the ability with which L was supported within these walls ; n...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 September 1836
VARIETIES. Poisoned Wounds.-When a part has been bitten, or wounded of any thing suspected of being poison- ed, or in a stale to communicate poisonous matter, the precautionary measures recommended, until the cupping-glass can be applied, are simple cleansing of the part by application of cold water, without any friction, that may render the skin more pervious or tender : the ligature or bandage not too tight betwixt the wound and heart ; and protection of the part from contact with the air. In using the cupping glass, it is necessary to guard against scarifying beyond the parts which it is to cover, then after using the glass for perhaps au hour, but not till then, if the glass can be applied within any reasonable time, excision is recommended, or the removal of the parts by a knife; then are-applica- tion of the cupping-glass ; and, lastly, cautiriza tion, or burning, that the air may be excluded by sealing hermetically. If this course be followed, then all will have been done to ...
VAN DIEMENS LAND. PORT PHILLIP. (From the Cornwall Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 September 1836
VAN DIEMENS LAND. . PORT PHILLIP. (From the Cornwall Chronicle.) If it be the intention of the Local Government to support its powers, and to preserve from ridicule the salutary Laws of England, in respect to wan- ton murder, it is needful for it to call before the proper tribunal, the wretches who have lately per- petrated the cold-blooded atrocities upon the un protected natives of the northern shores of New Holland. We raise our voice against the late acts of cruelty and murder, committed by individuals, at present in that vicinity, who are permitted, al- though associated with a numerous body of British subjects, to remain at large, and their barbarous crimes to pass unnoticed. It has been remarked to us by persons, whose humanity, certainly, must be passed from them, that, in their opinion, the British Law cannot take cognizance of murder, committed in a place out of its jurisdiction, and that the northern coast of New Holland is so situated. We differ with those per sons in bo...
