VARIETIES. Niebuhr the Historian.-Mr. Niebuhr was small in stature and thin : his voice of a very high pitch. He could not see well at a distance, and made sometimes strange mistakes. Spectacles were in- dispensable to him, and I had once to make a day's journey in order to fetch his Dollond's, which had been forgotten. He lived very frugally ; wine and water was his usual beverage : he valued good vsine, but did net drink it often. He fre- quently shaved while walking up and down the room, and when 1 was in the room he would even talk during the dangerous operation. He disliked smoking very much, but took snuff to such an ex- cess, that he had finally to give it up. He did not wri'e, as the ancient scholar, a whole book with one pen ; but he used a pen a very long time be fore he mended it, turning all round so as to use always its sharp point. Yet he wrote a neat and legible hand. His rare memory enabled him to study frequently without a pen, and 1 fiund him sometimes in a lying p...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 10 September 1836
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-Having read, in your Journal of the 27th ultimo, a letter addressed to you by Dr. Giustiniani, I felt somewhat surprised at the tone assumed by the learned Doctor, with reference to the religious feelings and ignorance of the European inhabitants, which rather uncourteously places them nearly on a level with the natives. As one would not wish to suppose that the Doctor is desirous of enhancing the value of the services he proposes to confer on the congregations who may attend his '* instruc- tions," the expression I allude to may be attribut- ed to an excess of zeal, of which, it must be allow- ed, the Reverend Gentleman is not at all deficient. I beg to assure him, however, that his zeal has led him into mistake, if he supposes there was any lack of disposition in the European population to seek and know the truths qf the Gospel, and that teachers, however humble, have not been wanting. In my own knowledge, several familie...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 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."

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1836 -000 "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" It is this day our painful duty to record another public exhibition in our Court of Justice-we trust the last. We offer no opinion upon this trial, but we must be allowed to express a desire, in common with the friends of social order, that the spirit for litigation which has prevailed for some time, will not continue longer to disgrace our aimais. A little forbearance, and a conscientious appeal to our own feelings, regardless of the nice distinctions drawn by friends to whom we appeal for advice, seeking ap- probation, would soon relieve us from this incubus-law. The foundation stone of a Church, connected with the Weste/n Australian Mission, was laid at Guildford on Tues- day last, by His Excellency Sir James Stirling. The Rev. J. B. Wittenoom, Colo...

A FATHER'S ADVICE TO HIS SON. (From the Hobart Town Courier.) We have been fa\ored with a copy of a very in- teresting and well written document, given by a parent ¡to his son, luiçier the distressing circum- stances of his taking leave of him as one of the prisoners transported to this colony in the ship' Aurora, recently arrived. . ¡Several portions of it* are of a private nature and unfit to meet the public eye, |»ut jthe following extracts from it, we flatter ourselves, .will:be acceptable to all : " Recollect at all time's, that ) our sentence is just. Do not entertain an idea of .escape, or to com- mit more crime-death is invariably the punish mept. Be at all times attentive to the rules of your cla&s ; by kind and obliging to your equals, and submissive to those who are in authority over you, and be strictly honest to every one. Make your mind up cheerfully to fulfil the lime of your sentence, as you "will t|ien be free from all guilt; and remember, that it is only by...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1836 -000 "Neither conscience nor taste will suffer me to fight one class or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground ofundeviating panegyric." An exploring party, with His Excel- lency the Governor at their head, was to start this morning from the banks of the Swan, on an excursion to the Toodyay valley, to the north-eastward, about ten miles, below Northam. The party left \ Perth yesterday afternoon. They are ex- pected to return in eight or ten days The party consists principally of gentle- men who have land to select in right of transfer from the district of Beverley. Attention was originally directed to this quarter by our Colonial Botanist, Mr, J. Drummond, and the valley of Toodyay, 01 Duidgee, with its surrounding neigh- bourhood, will, no doubt, before long be- come a thriving district. The distance from what is termed the head of the River Swan, at Mr Shaw's farm is com- paratively ...

VARIETIES. Pencilling by the way.-A eeriesof paper? under this title has lately appeared in the New Yoik Mirror, one of the best American periodicals. They are from the pen of Mr. Willis, of that town, and describe in a graphic and lively manner bib travels in Great Britain. As bkelches of English society they can be no less interesting to us than to our transatlantic neighbours Professor Wilson.-I was punctual to my hour, and found the poet standing before the fire with his coat skirts expanded-a large muscular man, something slovenly in bia dress, but with a manner and face of high good humour, and remarkably frank and prepossessing in address. While he was finding me a chair and saying civil things of the noble friend who had been the medium of our ac- quaintance, I had imagined a thinner and moro schoolar-like looking mau, with a much paler face, and a much more polished exterior. His head is exceedingly ample, his eye blue and restless, his mouth full of character, and his hair...
