QUARTER SESSIONS OF THE PEACE, FREMANTLE, MONDAY JULY 1, 1833. Before the Hon. W. H. Mackie, Chairman [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 July 1833

QUARTER SESSIONS OF THE PEACE, FREMANTLE, MONDAY JULY 1, 1833. Before the Hon. W. H. Mackie, Chairman Rex v. Tlmmas Francis WalsJi. The prisoner stood indicted for stealing a pair of Boots from Mr, Leake's Store at Perth-Plea, Guilty-sentenced to 3 months imprisonment and hard labour. Rex v. Habib, a man of colour -Mr. Richard Morrell, deposed. About the 18th of last month I was attacked with a violent tooth-ache, and had the tooth drawn, but still being in pain, I took a quantity of spirits, which made me insensible to what was passing, and laid down on the floor. The prisoner being my domestic servant, was in the same room with me, and Mr. Jones was at the window putting in some panes of glass. After I had been lying for some time, Jones came to me and asked me if I had missed anything out of my pockets, I felt them an?d missed a roll containing three Pound Notes and an order for ü4,2s.-Jones then told me that he had seen the prisoner put his hands into my pocket, and take some pa...

THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 July 1833

THE NATIVES. Since our last report of the natives they have conducted themselves very peaceably. Yagan has been seen at a farm on the Swan, and ridicules the idea of' his being taken. The story we narrated in our last, relative to an at- tempt made by a native to spear Mr. Bennet, and which we pronounced to be a singular one, has now a new version, Weeip having declared to several persons at the head of the Swan, that Bennet fired at his companion before he endea- voured to spear him, and, he says, if he had been near enough he would have speared him himself. To confirm his story, he shows a throwing-stick with shot marks upon it. As soon as the weather clears up, we are informed, he proposes paying a visit to his Honor the Lieutenant Governor, under the charge, and protection of Mr. Bull and some other Gentlemen at the head of the Swan, who have invariably expressed a very high opinion of his mental capacity and disposition. Those who have not had an opportunity of witnessing the s...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 July 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL THE vessel we noticed last week as having been seen off the Port, proves to have been the Cape Breton. She left the Cape of Good Hope on the 23d May, and reports that the Isabella from Eng- land had arrived at that port on the 17th, full of Passengers for this place, she may therefore be daily expected. Mr. Parr, a passenger in the Cape Breton, reports, that the Isabella had brought the intelligence to the Cape, that Governor Stirling will shortly be here in a Sloop of war, with 200 Soldiers, — and that he had received his appoint- ment for 7 years; £10,000. is to be expended in building a Government House, and each succeeding year, we aie to have an increased expenditure. The absence of a Mail by this vessel, another instance of vexatious tampering with our feelings — prevents our laying before our readers any positive informa- tion upon this point, we give the above merely as a current rumour of the day ; it however may be taken as a confirma- tion o...

GOVERNMENT NOTICE. Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth July 12, 1833. The following copy of a despatch from the Right Honorable the Secretary of State for the Colonies,, dated the 3rd March, 1832 ; and also the copy of one therein referred to from the Right Honorable Earl Bathurst, dated the 20th May,-1826, are published for the information of all concerned. By command of the Lieutenant Governor, PETER BROWN. (CIRCULAR) Downing-street, March 3, 1832. SIR,-The daily inconvenience and perplexity to which this department is subjected, by the delay which is unavoidably occasioned in attending to the questions which are brought before it, by the pre- valence of a method of addressing communications to the Secretary of State, either not in conformity with the regulations laid down in a Circular from Lord Bathurst to the governors of all the colonies in 1826, or if in nominal conformity with it, so con- trived as to defeat its obvious intention, obliges me to recur to the subject and to req...

SOCIETY For the permanent support of Orphan and Destitute Children by means of Apprenticeship in the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 July 1833

SOCIETY For the permanent support of Orphan and Destitute Children by means of Apprenticeship in the Colonies. A Society under the above title has recently been projected in London, the prospectus of which together with a series of queries to be answered by individuals in this colony willing to forward its views, has been kindly lent us by Mr. Grant. The subject is of such impor- tance both as regarding our interest and that of the mother country, that we lose no time in laying it before our readers, in order, that those who feel so inclined, may have an opportunity to forward their views upon the subject, which may be collected and transmitted to the commit- tee of the society by the Arethusa. The full quota of officers of the society had not been tilled up when the John Craig sailed. The names of the patron and presidents were still blank, but as Vice Presidents were Lord Dover, Earl Ox- ford, Portmore and Glengai, Colonel Torrens, Mr. Galley Knight, Mr. James Morrison, Sir F.

YAGAN AND HEEGAN, TWO NATIVES, SHOT. WILLIAM KEATS, A YOUTH, SPEARED. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 July 1833

YAGAN AND HEEGAN,   TWO NATIVES, SHOT. WILLIAM KEATS, A YOUTH, SPEARED. The intelligence of the affray which has led to this horrid catastrophe, was received with mingled feelings of gratifi- cation, and regret. But one sentiment prevails as regards the death of Yagan, which is that of satisfaction, and with some even of exultation, but it is general- ly lamented that the youth should have fallen a sacrifice to his boyish daring. We at present refrain from making any comment upon this event, our space this week being so limited ; we therefore leave our readers to draw their own conclusions as to the serious lesson it conveys. The Affray took place on Thursday last the 11th Inst., and on the following morning an inquiry was instituted by the Magistrates (whose names are attached to the depositions.) We are indebted to the desire of these Gentlemen to make the public acquainted with every particu- lar for the following statement of facts : James Keates, brother of the dec...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 July 1833

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, Sir,-A learned commentator on the. laws of England, in analyzing the title by which individ- uals claim exclusive possession of any portion of the surface or substance of the earth* after- shew- ing that it is derived from the natural right arising from prior occupancy, thus proceeds " Upon the same principle was founded the rights of migration, or sending colonies to find out new habitations, when the mother country was overcharged with, inhabitants ; which was practised as well, by the Phoenicians and Greeks, as the Germans, Scythi- ans and other northern people. And, so long as it was confined to the stocking and cultivation of desert uninhabited countries, it kept strictly within the limits of the law of nature. But how far- the seizing on countries already peopled, and driving, out or massacring the innocent and defenceless natives, merely because they differed from their, invaders in language, in religion, in customs, in government, or in co...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 July 1833

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, Sir,-Is it not remarkable that in our encount- ers with the Natives of these districts whether casual or preconcerted we have never seen them use the shield. Such a thing has not been seen I believe either in their hands, when armed, nor in their haunts when taken by surprise. Is it that we have never seen them arrayed in their panoply of battle ? or that being aware of the insufficiency of their shield as a defence against a musket, they have not incumbered themselves with that which might be an impediment to their flight ; or is it really the case that the tribes in the southern districts of Western Australia are not acquainted with, or at all events not accustomed to it as a means of defence. I am not aware that it forms part of their armoury at King George's Sound, nor has one been seen I think at Augusta. I have not heard of it at the Murray, nor in fact with any tribe to the south of those in the district of Mâyllo, from which quarter two ha...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 July 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL THE Article in our present number, relative to the formation of a Society for " the permanent support of Orphans and Destitute children by means of Apprenticship in the Colonies"' is de- serving of every attention, more particularly in this Colony, and we only lament that the queries sug- gested by the Society, were not transmitted to us, and that they have come to our knowledge at so late a period. The extract is taken from the Hobart Town Courier of December last, which we have only recently received by way of the Cape, we propose giving the continuation in our next, with such remarks as may occur to us. We have long sought the communication of our friends, upon subjects which more immediately come under their observation, at a distance from our notice ; and congratulate our readers that we have at length elicited the sentiments of " Phila- leth," upon the present all engrossing topic "of   the Natives;" we strongly recommend the ob- ser...

CIVIL COURT, PERTH, THE 9, A D 10 JULY, 1833. Before G. F. MOORE, Esq., Civil Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 July 1833

CIVIL COURT, PERTH, THE 9, A D 10 JULY, 1833. Before G. F. MOORE, Esq., Civil Commissioner. W. H Drake v. George Leake. This was an action upon a Bill of Exchange for 260l., brought by Mr. Drake as Executor to the estate of the late Mr. G. F. Johnson. After the Jury was sworn, the Bill was handed to the Commissioner. Mr. Leake objected to the plaintiffs proceeding in this case, on the ground of his not having any Property in the Bill, and not being the legitimate holder. Mr. Leake expressed himself very warmly upon the injustice of his being brought up to defend an action instituted by a party who had no authority to proceed against him. Mr. Drake thought it very unwarrantable to throw out such imputations, and he did not expect it from a Gentleman of Mr. Leake's respectability. Commissioner-I suppose you (referring to Mr. Drake) merely wished to shew that you were justified as an Executor. Major Nairn stepped forward and stated he could explain the matter. A subsequent power of &am...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 July 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL WE alluded last week to a Society established in London, for the purpose of providing for Orphan and Destitute Children, we now lay before our readers, in another portion of our paper, the continuation of the remarks, with an outline of the scheme. From the ignor- ance which is generally displayed at home, of our real position, we are by no means surprised, that we have not been solicited to contribute information as re- gards our wants, for the instruction of the Society ; by this time however we expect our capabilities are better known, and, to obviate any further delay, arising from the absence of positive intelligence, we earnestly recommend the establish- ment of a corresponding Committee, the members to be elected at a general meet- ing, which we are persuaded cannot commence its operation at too early a period. We leave the subject lor the present, in the hands of those whose interests are deeply involved in the con- sideration of it, and trust ...

MEMORANDUM Relative to the numbers of Emigrants to Australia during the years 1828, 1829, and 1830, by Mr. Elliott, Secretary to the Board of Commissions; May 1832. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 July 1833

MEMORANDUM Relative to the numbers of Emigrants to Australia during the years 1828, 1829, and 1830, by Mr. Elliott, Secretary to the Board of Com- missions; Mav 1832. It is said that the number of emigrants has been diminished by the new regulations respecting land. This is not true. From a Parliamentary return, it appears that in 1828, the number of emigrants to the Australian colonies was about 1,000, and in 1S30 about 1,200. Even in 1829 - the year when there was so great an emigration to Swan 1-iver, being at the date when that settlement was first formed, the number of emigrants in the whole year was only 2,000. Yet in the 4 months ending 28th April last, the number of emigrants has been 1389, being larger than the number in the whole j year for 1S2S and 1830, and being more than half of the number in the year 1S29, when the first j expedition to Swan River was included amor1 g the i return of emigrants. This proportional increase j in the present year is the more remarkable, !...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 July 1833

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette. Ö'IR,:-Being much pleaied with an article I¡ saw in one of your late numbers in praise of Orchards,. I take the liberty of sending you a few, lines in praise of Potatoes. I believe there is no plant at present cultivated in the temperate zones of the earth, which produces so large a quantity of human food with so little labour as the Potatoe. Cobbett, indeed, in his Cottage Exonomyr ap- pears to be of a different opinion ; but merely the constant grinding and thrashing which wheat re- quires before it can be made into breads is quite as ineonvenient in a, ,new colony as the washing and slashing of the potatoes. The months of July and August are the best months in the year for planting potatoes on high land, as they come up too late to be injured by our winter frosts. 100 lbs. of sets, plant about the tenth part of an acre, and the crop averages in land moderately manured and cultivated about tenfold; in land highly manured I have known them produc...

COLONIAL AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 July 1833

COLONIAL AGENT. The duties of this officer would be various and important, viz: To furnish the Society with constant and accu- rate information as to the demand for the services of the children ;-to examine the children on their "arrival in company with a surgeon ;-to report on their condition;-to receive and provide for the children until apprenticed ; to place them with settlers of good character ; to see to the perform- ance of the contract ; and to receive the periodical payments of the settlers. These important services being considered too wide for the uncontrolled management of an agent, ! it is proposed that a Committee in the colony cor- responding with the London Society, should be formed for the protection of the children : the re- ward of the agent to be a per centage on the sums received from the settlers. By this means it would be to his personal advantage that the masters and apprentices should be equally contented, and that the whole system should work as well as pos...
