WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. We perceive the difficiency in weights and measures is as sensibly felt in the sister Colonies, as in our own. In most instances we are disposed to believe the error arises from ignorance, and not _, design, we think therefore, it is high time our   Shopkeepers were better informed. The Laun-       ceston Advertiser observes "It is a pity amongst   the bakers, some individual cannot be found to   adopt the system of weighing each loaf at the     counter-in presence of the customer. This open display of honest dealing would soon amply com-   pensate, the dealer, by the increase of trade which would in consequence take place. The hint may be instructive here!! In the mean       time it is to be hoped the attention of the Legis- lative Council, at an early period, will be directed to the establishment of some r...

CIVIL COURT, 8th January 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833

CIVIL COURT, 8th January 1833. Before G. F. Moore Esquire, Commissioner. This was an action to recover £245, for em- ploying an indentured Servant. Graham v. Wright. Mr. Clarke appeared for the Plaintiff, and handed in Mrs. Weavell's Affida- vit, in consequence of her continued illness. It was to this effect, that she left England in the year 1829, and that Ann Tew was previously her ser- vant; there was a verbal agreement on leaving England, and she (Mrs. Weavell) had every rea- son to beleive, that it was reduced to writing on arrival here. Beleves the document, and Signa- ture to be the writings alluded to Ann Tew broke through a window. Not aware whether she left with permission or not. She snatched a paper and burnt it, which Capt, Graham said was her agreement, but I did not think him serious. The Commissioner - considering the Indentures   sufficiently proved, the Witnesses were called. Charles Spiers,-I recollect seeing a Notice stuck   upon Mr. Sam...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette. Sir,   You will oblige me by inserting the following re-   ply to a letter, which appeared in your last Number, calling on one of the Officers of the 63rd. Regiment to explain why Privates of that Corps are permitted to trade. The Soldiers of the 63rd Regiment stationed here, are strictly prohibited from trading ; and in order to prevent their wives, when so engaged, from having any advantage over trading Settlers, they have been required from the commencement of the present year, either to give up traffic, or to relinquish the rations allowed them and their children. Those who have chosen the latter alternative are no longer under Military control ; and are consequently as free as any class of Settlers, to follow what pursuit they please. None but married Soldiers are per- mitted here to live out of Barracks, and this only during good behaviour; an indulgence granted them at home, and in other Colonies. The private allud...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833

THE   WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. The two Natives who arrived in the Thistle from King Georges Sound, are named Manyat, and Gyallipert. Their taking, to them, so distant and dangerous a voyage, shews in a most marked man- ner the beneficial confidence, which an uniformly humane, and kind treatment pursued since the earliest settlement of King Georges Sound, by every rank of inhabitant towards the Natives, has in- stilled, not only into the minds of these individuals, but into the whole of their tribe, with whose full consent they em- barked. Yesterday morning they were taken by two gentlemen Mr. Collie, Colonial Sur- geon, and Mr. Mc B. Brown, to obtain an interview, with their fellow Aborigines of Swan River, who were understood to be in considerable numbers at Monger's Lake, (at the back of Perth,) in order to ascer- tain the feeling and understanding that would ensue between, them. Mr. Mon- ger being met near his house readily joined the party ; and to his former fri...

COLONEL HANSON'S PAMPHLET. (Continued) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833

COLONEL HANSONS PAMPHLET. (Continued) The town of York was established whilst I was at Perth—a Township upon the banks of a River, beyond the Darling Range, (which by the way I have just mentioned as the scene of Mr. Moore's and Mr. Dale's excursions)-I could give you a sketch of it's position relatively with the low coun- try, but it would be unbecoming in me to trench in the slightest degree upon the province of Mr. Roe, the Surveyor General. He is well known to the   public as the very able assistant of Captain King, the Australian Maritime Surveyor, and he will I trust shortly give the world a general Map of this very interesting Colony. This said town of York, was thriving fast when I came away—the communication had been tho- roughly established. A road was also projected between the Swan River and King George's Sound,   the latter place having been abandoned as a penal settlement, and attached to the Government of Western Australia. A most difficult a...

WANTON ATTACK UPON THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833

WANTON ATTACK UPON THE NATIVES. We have been informed that a most wanton at- tack was made upon the Natives, in the neighbour- hood of Armstrong's Point, during last week, by a party returning from Perth to Fremantle. Although unprovoked by any act on the part of the Natives they fired several rounds upon them. It is said the guns were merly charged with powder ; admitting this, the attack was equally unwarrantable, and it is to be hoped will not be repeated.

To the Editor, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

To the Editor, A short time previous to the departure of His Excellency Governor Stirling for England, I address'd to him, a few communications on the manner of feeding and treating sheep in Spain. I did so, by way of calling the attention of the Settlers generally, to a question which above all others must be most interesting to us. At that time your paper was not available for the discussion of this, or any other question, but as it is now again resumed, I forward the papers for your perusal, and if you please, for insertion. In so doing, I beg to say, that I am well aware of the arduous nature of the task which you have undertaken to perform, and that I consider it my duty, without the least fear of reproach or of being charged with presumption, to join with others, in as- sisting you to go through it with credit to yourself, and advantage to the Colony. In a new Country, and in so small a com- munity, every man ought to contribute in some way to the public good, and I know not h...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, Sir, I request the favour of your stating, that the Mr. L. of Fremantle, mentioned by you as recently engaged in what is called "an affair of hon-   our" is not,   Your Obedient Servant Fremantle, January 21st. 1833. George Leake. The difficulty of communicating with the set- tlers on the Canning, except by water, is seriously felt. It is to be regretted therefore that some steps are not taken to establish a Ferry under Mount Eliza. The road to the point, now in progress by Subscrip- tion, under the direction of J. Morgan Esquire, is a great step towards the accomplishment of this de- sirable object, and we have every reason to believe if a small portion of land, was allotted on both sides of the River, for the purposes of the Ferry, many individuals would be found, who would undertake to supply the necessary accommodation for the public. By way of Guildford the distance to Mr. Phillips's Farm which is nearly at the head ...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. We perceive by the English Journals, that Emigration, encouraged by the ad- vice and guidance of Commissioners ap- pointed by His Majesty, has been for- warded to a considerable extent, to vari- ous British possessions ; it has however been a matter of surprise to us to find the Swan River or Western Australian Set- tlements excluded from the consideration bestowed upon other Colonies. The Commissioners state, they are not prepar- ed to undertake the conveyance of Emi- grants to the Settlement on the Swan River; as no reason is assigned, we are left to conjecture, that it may arise from the unaccountable ignorance, which is daily displayed of our position and local advantages. Even in the House of Com mons, strange as it may appear, the knowledge of this Colony, is singularly defective ; and the arguments which are held forth by some Honourable Gentle- men, founded on this defective informa- tion are irreconcileable with any other sen timents, than a ...

COLONEL HANSON'S PAMPHLET. (Continued) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

COLONEL HANSON'S PAMPHLET. (Continued) The projected road of communication with the Swan River, which I mentioned in a former part of this letter, has already made very considerable pro- gress-part of the detatchment of Soldiers have been employed upon it, since the arrival of Dr. Collie, and they have already penetrated upwards of twenty miles I had some conversation with one of the men, and he described many portions of the country, through which he had passed, as being exceedingly beautiful. He moreover told me, that water on the track was abundant, and that the greatest distance they had yet passed, without a stream, was little more than three miles. The Native Chief Nakainah, was dressed up ini a most splendid uniform, to be given to him as a present, after he had accompanied the Governor in- to the interior, upon a journey he was then con- templating. It was a mottley dress no doubt Maude,   the first Lieutenant, of the Sulphur, furnished a Black Coat, I furnished...

Perth January 6th 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

Perth January 6th 1833. Sir, The reappearance of a Colonial Paper is a circumstance to be hailed with feelings of satis- faction, by all who are interested in the well being of this (at present) small community. Nothing I am certain is more calculated to work out an effect- ual benefit to us, than a well regulated press, since it has ever been considered one of the most whole- some and powerful checks on immorality and vice ; for when the press joins with the public in condemn- ing and exposing vice, it not only gives weight to opinion, for the present ; but perpetuates it to the punishment of the delinquent, and to the warning of the Public generally. Much benefit however as we have reason to expect in the points above men- tioned, the advantages are trifling when compared with those to be derived from sending forth to the world a plain unvarnished tale, and correcting that opinion of our country which has been formed from the misrepresentation of interested parties who with unblus...

THE KING GEORGES SOUND NATIVES [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

THE KING GEORGES SOUND NATIVES On Thursday last Mr. Dale proceeded to Monger's Lake, in company with Mr. Smythe and the   two Natives of King Georges Sound, Manyat and   Gyallepert, in consequence of a wish to see the latter understood to have been expressed by Yegan and others of his tribe. Shortly after arriving at the Lake, Yegan and about ten of his tribe, made their appearance well armed, and welcomed their   visitors in an apparently cordial manner. A Corrobbary was danced; followed by an interchange of   names and spears -the Dialects of either party was perfectly unintelligible to the others, and they seemed to apprehend each others meaning in some few instances rather from gestures than language : however their mutual attempts at conversation were persevered in throught the interview. Something   like a trial of skill in throwing the spear took     place between Galleypert and Yegan; the latter   ...

INVESTIGATION RELATIVE TO THE DISCOVERY OF THE BODY OF HALLIDAY AT MONGERS LAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 January 1833

INVESTIGATION RELATIVE TO THE DISCOVERY OF THE BODY OF HALLIDAY AT MONGERS LAKE. Mr. Walters having given information that he   had accidentally discovered the body of a man, on   the North East side of the large Lake, near Mon-   ger's Lake, W. H. Mackie, and J. Morgan Esqires   J. P. proceeded to the spot, accompanied by the Colonial Surgeon, and after a minute investigation were jointly of opinion that the deceased met his death by violence, but by whose hands, or in what manner, they had no grounds for hazarding an opin- ion. In consequence of a report having been circulated, that the deceased met his death, by some violence from a white man (suspicion having previously rest- ed on the Natives) the following investigation took place on Saturday last before the Rev. J. B.   Wittenoom, and J. Morgan Esq. Justices of the   Peace.   J. H Monger, stated that about the time Halliday was &amp...

"Scrutators" / " Posers " for the Colonial   Secretary must have been intented for another quarter ; we should have thought it needless to have informed any person, that the Colonial Secre- tary is merely the organ of the Government.'
