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

THE NATIVES. During the past week the Natives     have been in considerable numbers in the neighbourhood of the Bush Inn, on the Fremantle road. Information having been received at head quarters, Captain Ellis and a party were immediately dis- patched in that direction ; they however only found two old women, and a few children. We suspect they are now strongly disposed to be reconciled to us, we must however be cautious how we admit them into our confidence. Migo, we understand, came into Perth yester- day ; again we caution the public not to encourage any of them, as an indis- criminate supply of provisions, will ren-   der them independent of the advances from the proper authorities, and regard- less of that influence which it will be necessary for them to maintain, in order to arrive at a permanent and amicable understanding with the Aborigines. We look with some degree of curiosity for the result of the death of Yagan, the native chief, to...

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. SIR,-We see but too many traces of the rava- ges of the White Ants; but they make their approaches so stealthily under their covered ways, and like the wise Dutch at Antwerp on a late occa sion, so keep within their strong casemates as to be tolerably secure from observation as w«ll as annoy- ance. I had an opportunity lately of seeing something of their domestic arrangements, the description of which may possess sufficient in- terest to "fill a corner."-Upon the brow of a small rounded eminence there stood a sort of pillar of clay about 5 feet high, which had once filled up the centre of a hollowed tree, the shell of which had been from time to time broken and burned away. This pillar was the work of white ants. As it interfered with the operations of the plough, I commenced breaking and digging it down, not without some small curiosity. Numbers of centi pedes were found about the outside, where pieces of the wood still adhered. The clay which wa...

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

FUNDS. The funds on which the Society may depend, as the means of carrying their purpose into execu- tion, are to be derived from three sources : First-Fees to be received with the children from the Parishes. Second-Fees to le received from Foundling Hospitals, Orphan Asylums, Societies, and indi- viduals desirous of providing for destit ate children. Third-Payment from the colonists for the services of the children. Without exactly fixing any of these sums, it may be confidently stated, that the Society might obtain from three sources, ample means to defray the expenses attendant on the emigration of the children. In the county Parishes it is generally usual to pay the sum of 101. as the fee of appren- ticeship ; in London, the parishes generally con- trive to get rid of their pauper, youth for half that sum. The average may therefore be estimated at Si. for each child Under the second head, the annual subscription of 10/. might entitle the subscriber to claim an- nually for one ch...

MAGISTRATES COURT.—WEDNESDAY, 24th JULY, 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 July 1833

MAGISTRATES COURT.-WED- NESDAY, 24th JULY, 1833. The Perth Constables, Welsh, Hunt, and Cook, have been particularly on the alert, for some time past, and to their vigilance we owe the suppression of the Hop and Malt meetings, at unseasonable hours, a4: the houses of the disorder- ly publicans in the neighbourhood of the barracks. Information was given 3 months ago, that a carpet bag and a riding habit, had been stolen out of Mr. Shaw's cart, when at Perth, it was thought most prudent to let the matter rest quietly for a time, when at length, on Tuesday night last Welsh proceeded to search Mary Burgess's house, and fbupd the articles the property of Mr. Shaw. The silk lining of the habit was made into a hat, for Jane Geaks, who was admitted King's evidence against her companion. The case was remanded until Mr. Shaw could attend to identify the articles. On the same day William Barnard was fined, by the Rev, J. B. Wittenoom, Five shillings A and expenses,for assaulting, in his presen...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL The " Isabella " from England has at length arrived and brings us the fol- lowing intelligence, which we give with- out any comment this week, as we fully anticipate we shall be enabled to collect further information from Captain Maug- han, who it is represented has despatches from Governor Stirling, but owing to some fatality w hich attends our commu- nication willi the Mother Country, they have been mislaid. 250 Marines with a Field Officer, and others, were upon the point of embarking in a transport tor this Colony. A body of Quakers, of capital, had determined upon settling at King Geor- ge's Sound. The Home Government had acceded to the wish of the Colonists, and allowed to the first settlers who had improved their locations the Fee Simple upon all their grants The Revenue derived from the duties on spirituous liquors is to be expended upon roads and other public works in the.

To the Editor of The Perth Gazette. Si it,-I am not skilled in Botany, and would* gladly seek information through the medium of your paper, .if you have no objection, from any of the initiated who is willing, to give it. If in the endeavour to describe, what has struck me as a . singularity, I should btj guilty of any misapplica- - tion of a technical term, I crave pardon of the > more learned. On looking at the i ed-gum trees which are- now. in blossom, the blossom appears to be a whitish, flower, but on examining the - ground«* attentively under the tree you find also pink coloured, flowers of a totally different shape. . One is composed of a great number of slender whitish filaments thickly growing round the edge of a hard goblet-shaped seed vessel. The other - in its ealier stage pressnts an appearance very * similar to one1 distinct individual of » the cluster which formsfthe flower of the honeysuckle.- Again, these two flowers seem to belong to different; classes.

To the Editor of The Perth Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 July 1833

To the Editor of The Perth Gazette.. SIR,-In a former letter, having taken a brief and rapid view of the course of policy pursued by the British Nation with respect to the Aboriginal Inhabitants of several countries colonized by them, and of the consequences of that Policy ; let us now turn our attention to those settlements with which we are more immediately connected. At   King George's Sound a uniform system of con-   ciliation and kindness was adopted at the first, and steadily persevered in, so that a perfect confidence and cordial amity are established with the Natives   of that District. One tribe at least, is domestica-   ted and attached though not civilized ; and likely to become useful as interpreters between us and the other tribes in case of desired communication, or serviceable as allies in case of unavoidable hostility.-Let us look now to that act in which we are all parties concerned ; namely, the Settle- ment of Sw...

THE NEW PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 August 1833

THE MEW PARLIAMENT. It will be seen, by reference to our report, that Parliament assembled on Tuesday, and that Mr. Manners Satton was, as we anticipated, called again to fill the distinguished oflice of Speaker, by an overwhelming majority, even of reformers. The debate, although turning principally, as indeed it should in strict propriety have done, wholly on the mere qualifications of the candidates, was yet not devoid of interest, for it elicited from the speakers? such a degree of asperity of tone,-and such an extent of declaration of political sentiment, as will enable the represented to comprehend the course likely to be pursued hy parties in the great discus- sions which aie before us. We exclude from this' anticipation the expressions of Mr. Tennyson with respect to impeachment, because we entertain a hope that the Hon. Member will not again allow himself to make use of language, which, in vio- lence and want of judgment, would prove him but very ill qualified to speak the ...
