THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 August 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL THE appearance of Whales off our coast by no means an un usai circumstance at this season of the year, has revived the long expressed feelings of regret, that we have not been supplied with requi- site apparatus as well as suitable hands to encoun- ter them ; the events of the week, which will be found narrated in another column, it is to be hoped will tend to excite some degree of enterprise, and lead to a provision being made for future seasons. It is a. melancholy fact that two fine whale-boats brought out from England at considerable expense, are now on board the Cornwallis for Exportation. These difficulties brought upon us owing to the absence of a circulating medium, it is hard to struggle against ! We have just been informed that a Whale was thrown on the North beach opposite Mr. Lukin's on Thursday night, and has given employment to several hands ever since, in conveying the blubber to Fremantle. We have not heard who discovered it ; but we be...

Having, and Not Having. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 August 1833

Having, and Not Having. At a time when a very awful and sacred Ritual is approaching, the following narrative, with its appendages, may possibly not be ill-timed, or ill taken. In the days of Old Harry* of reformiug memory, the great ERASMUS paid a visit to this Isle, from the sole motive of seeing, and conversing with that Phenomenon of wit and learning, Sir THOMAS MOORE ; but as they read very different Creeds, the former being a zealous Lutheran, and tlie latter a rigid member of the Church of Rome, they one evening got into a very warm dispute upon the Doctrine of Transubstantiation, which Sir THOMAS very arbitrarily determined by an Ipse Diccit (to Wit) " Credequod edas et edas." Be- lieve that you eat, and you eat; at which ERAS- MUS, with a tacit shrug, gave up the argument ; and a few days after, he borrowed a beautiful white Palfrey of Sir THOMAS, to carry him as far as Harwich, on his return home, from which Port he was to send it back, before he embarked to the Belgic Lan...

POETRY. ON THE EYE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 August 1833

POETRY. ON THE EYE. To say what wond'rous skill what happy care Taught the bold Eye the blaze of light to bear ; Thro' fluid space, with piercing ken to pry, To measure earth, and comprehend the sky ; (Is but to tell, what ev'ry mgment shews, That Heav'n no bounds in power or bounty knows, Almighty, where it works, all good where it l:e stows.) This homage paid, forgive the vagrant Muse ; If for her theme some lighter dress she choose, And cloathe in sportive fancy's wanton guise, More trivial thoughts from humbler hints that rise. When vulgar gentry gather in a croud, Some all intent, some jostling, and some loud ; You ask the cause, and wait for a reply, Ten to one they answer " ask my eye" You call this rude, but, call it what you will, Rude as it is, there's meaning in it still. Olodius shall prove it:-Clodius looks you through, Yet seems to look at every thing but you. Is ha invidious, mean, malignant, sly ? What says the vulgar proverb ? .' Ask his eye." When first Corinna dar...

THE NATIVES AGAIN! [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 August 1833

THE NATIVES AGAIN ! But this time not in fault. On Thurs- day last intelligence was brought into Perth, that a flock of Sheep the proper- ty of the Hon. P. Brown, had been driven away by the Natives, and instant preparations were made to dispatch the military in pursuit of them ; a party of civilians, organized by J. Morgan, Esq., J P. also followed m the chase ; But on arriving at Bassendean, the residence of the hon. Gentleman, after a fatiguing walk of several miles, having taken a circuitous direction to intercept the retreat of the depredators with their booty, the party had the satisfaction to find the Sheep perfectly safe, and that the whole excitement was occasioned by the tim- idity of the shepherd, who saw, or fan- cied he saw, 'a band of fierce barbarians', and fled for succour. We have noticed with pleasure the enthusiasm which prevails on such occa- sions, and the disposition evinced to offer mutual protection ; in order that this commendable ardour may not be checked b...

ANECDOTES OF THE KING GEORGE'S SOUND NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 August 1833

ANECDOTES OF THE KING GEORGE'S SOUND NATIVES. As it is our intention from time to time to give a continuation of these anecdotes, we consider it desirable to furnish our readers with a sketch of the characters from whom we have derived our information, and who form the sub- jects of our remarks. The three Natives we have now at Perth, from King George's Sound,   Manyet, Ionen, and Tatan, a boy about 12 years of age, are much attached to each other, and seem to enjoy the food they have in common — probably from custom, more than inclination— better than when alone. The clothes which are given to them, however, they are very proud of, and seldom part with, one to the other ; many of their trifling orna- ments, to the disgrace of our improved generation, have been stolen from them ; which they have never attempted to re- sent further than stigmatising the thief as a blackguard, an epithet they equally apply to any ungentlemanly conduct, and at times, as we have witnessed, ...

NEW ROAD TO GUILDFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 24 August 1833

NEW ROAD TO GUILDFORD. The communication between the towns of Perth and Guildford has been greatly facilitated by a new road recently cut under the direction of Lieut. Dale of the 63rd. There does not appear to be any saving of distance, but several awkward hills are avoided, and the ground, is firmer. The drains which have been dug through the different swamps, are di- rected with judgment ; and the manner   in which the bridges are constructed, dis- plays a masterly hand.

WHALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 24 August 1833

WHALES. MODE OF TAKING THE WHALE -The following is the mode practised m taking the whale in the Greenland fishery. Every ship is provided with six boats, to each of which belong six men for rowing the boat, and a harpooner, whose business it is to strike the whale with his harpoon. Two of these boats are kept constantly on the watch at some distance from the ship, fastened to pieces of ice, and are   relieved by others every four hours. As soon as a whale is perceived, both the boats set out in pursuit of it, and if either of them can come before the whale finally descends, which is known   by his throwing up his tail, the harpooner dis-   charges his harpoon at him. There is no difficulty   in choosing the place where the whale is to be   struck as some have asserted : for these animals only come np to the surface in order to breathe, or blow, as the fishermen term it, and therefore always keep the soft and vulnerable...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL IT will be seen by a notice in another portion of our paper, that it is the inten- tion of the Agriculturists, at their next meeting, to take into consideration the propriety of opening a correspondence with the Society established in London for " the permanent support of Orphan and destitute Children by means of Ap- prenticeship in the Colonies."

CELEBRATION OF THE KING'S BIRTH-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 24 August 1833

CELEBRATION OF THE KINGS BIRTH-DAY. The day was ushered in by the sound of " random guns," echoed and reechoed from different parts of the town. The Governor having issued a Notice request ¡ng the attendance of the Civil Officers, at the Council-chamber, about a quar- ter before twelve, the time specified for assembling», they were seen repairing in that direction, and shortly afterwards, the detachment of the 63rd stationed \at head qnarters, inarched down to the open square in front of the Government House, or Council-chamber, in a column of sections right in front, where they formed line, and received the Lieutenant Governor with a general salute,-who then in his capacity of Commandant in- spected the parade. When this cere- mony was gone through, the detachment wheeled back into an open column of sections, arid marched past in review order, in slow and quick time¿ which; was performed with greater precision . than could have been expected, consider- ing the manner in which the m...
