QUARTERLY MEETING, AT GUILDFORD OF THE MEMBERS OF THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 8 June 1833

QUARTERLY MEETING, AT GUILDFORD OF THE MEMBERS' OF THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the above society took place yesterday, Wm. Tanner, Esq., in the chair. Having been led to understand that several subjects of importance to the in- terest of the Agriculturists, were likely to be discussed at this meeting, we made a point of attending, but owing to the delay we experienced in crossing the memorable flats above Perth, and other casualties, we only arrived at Guildford in time to witness the adjournment of the meeting. We were informed consider- able time had been occupied in talking over the subject of finance, and in ana- lizing His Honor's reply, (which will be found on the other side to the deputation from the body of Agriculturists ; also in desultory remarks relative to the natives, —no resolutions, however, were either   proposed, or adopted. The general disposition of the Agri- culturists appears to be, to recommend the adoption of measures of a pacifice nat...

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. LYING IS COCKBURN SOUND.-The Thistle, Dart, Eagle, and Government Schooner, Ellen. THE. WEATHER, during the last week has been extremely boisterous, the pre- vailing winds from the North West ; on Wednesday night we were visited with a thunderstorm as terrific as any we have ever witnessed. The vessels in our Har- bour prudently removed to Cockburn Sound a short time ago, where they rode out the gale in perfect security. Holiday at the Public Offices ; Tues- day the 18th Inst, Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, SIR,-In your last publication of the 8th instant, you observe, "that the beef imported into this Colony of late, has been principally from Sydney." In stating this I feel justified in asserting to the contrary, as from most perfect knowledge, the. importation lately of that article has been much greater from the Cape, and as to the quality of the meat, all have allowed it was unexceptionable. I think it but fair we should give all our neigh- bouring friends an unbiased opinion of the quality of the articles they send us, and although I do admit the Sydney Beef to be as good, as we could wish, still that from the Cape is not below it in quality or sweetness. Had. you taken the trouble to ascertain, you would have found, that, within the last five months, upwards of Eighty thousand weight of Cape Beef has been imported into this Colony by the Cornwallis, the quality of which has not been disputed, but in fact, highly approved of I am, Sir, Your obed...

To the Editor, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

To the Editor, SIR,-As walking up to the Harbour Master's Office to-day during a heavy gale of wind, it oc- curred to me that a very safe and commodious harbour for small crafts and boats could be formed at little expense by making a basin several feet below the level of the sea, along the base of the acclivity on which the office stands, and by deep- ening the channel to this basin, the sea would at all times flow freely into. it. Small crafts and boats would thus be sheltered from very prevailing winds, and a great colonial improvement effected. I am, &c, C. Fremantle, June 10th, 1833. Our Correspondent has directed at- tention to a subject of considerable mo- ment. The loss and damage sustained up to this time, would have defrayed the expense of forming a basin, or dock for boats, it is a matter of astonishment to us therefore that some measure has not been adopted. If the plan suggested by C. is practicable, which we are not pre- pared to determine, the expense of carry-...

MAGISTRATES COURT, PERTH: BEFORE THE HON. W. H. MACKIE, ESQUIRE, & THE REV. J. B. WITTENOOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

MAGISTRATES COURT, PERTH BEFORE,THE HON. W. H. MACKIE, ESQUIRE, & THE REV. J. B. WITTENOOM. Louis de Mayo, the Proprietor of the Perth Hotel, was this day fined One Pound for allowing tippling at unseasonable hours. Another action for scandal it is reported is likely to be submitted to the decision of the Court, at a Special sittings, the parties both Plaintiff and Defendant being strangers to us. The Plaintiff   accuses the Defendant of filching from him his good name; the Defendant retorts upon the Plaintiff the charge of defrauding him of certain monies. Whichever way the case may end it will cost the parties some money to arrive at the truth, as most probably two vessels will be detained;-the Eagle and the Dart. Fish for some time has been scarce in the Perth Market, but the town of Fremantle is well supplied with salmon, whiting, brem, snappers, &c. Willey, the fishman, we understand has contracted with the Captains of the vessels lying in Cockburn ...

RECENT INFORMATION ON THE MANAGEMENT OF WOOL. (Publislied in London, October, 1831.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

RECENT INFORMATION ON THE MAN AGEMENT OF WOOL. (Published in London, October, 1831.) THE Wool grown in New South Wales has now become an object of much interest to all Wool Dealers and Woollen Manufacturers ; and from the annual increase of its quantity, as well as the general improvement which has been effected in its quality from year to year, it appears certain that a few years more of judicious and systematic improvement must make it an object of great national importance ; it is therefore desirable that those who have it in their power to impart any   information likely to be servicable in the promotion of such an end, should not withhold it. Under this impression the following hints are submitted, for the use of the cultivators, and shippers of the article It cannot fail to afford gratification and en- couragement to the Australian Wool Growers, to learn that the produce of their flocks is at this time in very high and deserved repute in England. This reputation a...

THE FIRST STEAM-BOAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

THE FIRST STEAM-BOAT. The mortification to which men of science are exposed is well illustrated by the following nar- rative from the lips of Fulton himself, of the building of the first steam-boat :-He says, when I was building my first steam-boat at New York, the project was viewed by the public either with indifference, or with contempt, as a visionary scheme.-My friends indeed, were civil, but they were shy. They listened with patience to my explanation, but with a settled cast of incredulity on their countenances. I felt the full force of the lamentation of the poet, Truths would you teach to save the sinking land All fear, none aid you, and few understand. As I had occasion to pass daily to and from the building-yard, while my boat was in progress, I have often loitered unknown near the idle groups of strangers gathering in little circles, and heard various inquiries as to the object of this new vehicle. The language was uniformly that of scorn, or sneer, or ridicule -The loud...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL The occasional assembly of a body of settlers, is highly desirable, it engenders a dependence upon, mutual cooperation, and the knowledges acquired by the communication of different systems of Husbandry which have proved successful, stimu- lates the less fortunate adventurer to renewed ex- ertions. 'Man is a link of one vast and mighty chain, and each naturally has a dependence on the other.   The following, which we have taken from the Cape Advertiser, places the labours of the Agri- culturist in an interesting and important light, we recommend it strongly to the attention of a body too apt to look with disdain upon the patient in- dustry of the solitary farmer. THE difficulties of this profession, the degree of knowledge and ingenuity requisite for carrying it on with success, are too often much underrated, especially by the inhabitants of towns, who are totally ignorant of it. We shall, therefore, avail ourselves of the opinion and word...

THE NATIVES! [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 June 1833

THE NATIVES! Under this head we are again called upon to notice the aggressions of the natives,-each succeeding week bring- ing with it, an accompanying outrage. We alluded in a previous number to a loss sustained by J. Phillips, Esq., of Maddington Farm, on the Canning, since which we regret to learn he has suffered an additional loss of 36 sheep. These repeated attacks are sorely mortifying, and must damp the exertions of the most persevering ;-a loss of stock in a new colony to the value of £200. at "one fell swoop" cannot be sustained by any one settler, without its operating as a great drawback to the attainment of his views, and to some it would be positive anni- hilation. Can it be possible that the natives communicated to some gentlemen at the head of the Swan their intention of going over to the Canning to spear cattle, immediately previous to the oc- currence we have narrated ? It has been related to us for a fact, and we must say we regarded the coolness and indifference ...

William Cooper and his son William, a child 7 years of age, were committed for stealing some posts from Mr. Dod's allotment on the South beach. It appeared the child had stolen the posts at the instigation of the father. On Wednesday the 12th instant, Sylvester Joan Dias, servant to Mr. Solomon, waa charged with stealing a bottle of anniseed, and 6 lbs. of cheese from his shop. The prisoner confessed having taking the property, and that he had given it to Read in Fremantle. Read and his wife were taken up on suspicion of having received the things knowing them to have been stolen ; the fact not being sufficiently established they were discharged. Dias was committed for trial.

COUNTY ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 22 June 1833

COUNTY ELECTIONS. The elections in the country have terminated in some places contrary to general expectations. The majority are in favour of the Ministry, and Reform interest. The following is a brief summary of the result at the most prominent of the elections : In Norwich City, Lord Stormont and Sir J. Scar- lett have been returned by a large majority over Mr. Gurney and Mr. B. Ker. It is, however, broadly affirmed that bribery was carried on to a great extent, and that an investigation will take place at the proper time. On the last day of polling, a serious riot took place, in consequence of a rencontre between the supporters of the two parties. At Hertford, Lords Ingestrie and Mahon have been elected by a large majority over Mr T. Dumcombe and Mr Spalding, step-son of Lord Brougham. Cambridge University returned the Right Honourable Air Goulburn and Mr Man- ners Sutton, Speaker. There was no opposition. Mr Lubbock, the Reform Candidate, resigning, on finding that he h#d entere...

väsa»aa&ss SPECIAL SITTINGS. j CIVIL COURT, PERTH, 19 JUNE, 1833. Before G. F. Moore, Esq., Commissioner. Sheldon v. Cockrell. Mr. Sheldon made the following statement :-About fourteen days ago, the defendant applied to him for a passage in the Dart, of winch vessel he (the plaintiff) was super- cargo, but as they could not come to an arrange- ment, he subsequently determined upon going by the Eagle. He said that Major Nairn had offered to cash some notes for him, and if I would give him a few he would get the money for me : I gave him two, and in the c »urse of a short time he re- turned me the change. He said if I would give him ten more he could get them cashed from another source. But as he did not return I applied to Dr. Langley with whom he lived, who told me he was gone to Perth, and that he would be back with what money he had belonging to me. I saw him a day or two afterwards,-he avoided me-but I overtook him. On my demanding my money he said "Whatever money I have ...

THE NATIVES! The Natives have again been at their work of destruction ; but their operations have been con- fined to one spot,- the head of the Swan. G. F, Moore, Esq, lost one pig a few days ago, and the Messrs. Burgess two-thus, week after week our catalogue is supplied, which though the amount is of little importance in the detail, the " tottle of the whole " is by no means an inconsiderable sum. Weeip, the native of the mountain tribe, we have just been informed, has expressed a willing- ness to direct a party to the spot where Yagan may be found, and that he will assist in his capture If he is honest in his intentions, which the cha- racter he bears-saving his pilfering habits, would lead us to presume, a cultivation of a mutual good understanding between the settlers and this tribe, confined to the particular district in which they are known, would be productive of favourable results. If any system of ftiendly intercourse is encouraged we do trust the experiment will be tried,...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL WE have been anxiously looking for the intelligence of the arrival in England of Governor Stirling, which we now have the gratification of announcing.

You know that an additional amount was granted for the Swan River expenditure,...
