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

PUBLIC CARRIAGES. In this wonder-working age few greater im- provements have been made in any of the useful arts than in those applied to the system of tra- velling by land. The report given us of Lord Lon- donderry's speaking in the House of Peers one night, and being at his own door in Durham the next (two hundred and fifty miles off), is quite astounding, and is a performance that no other country under the sun could accomplish. We shall confine ourselves at present, however, to the usual course of public conveyances ; and a sentence in the private letter of a personal friend has suggested the subject to us :-" I was out hunting" he writes, '* last season on a Monday, near Brighton, and dined with my father in Merrion-square, Dublin, at six o'clock on the following Wednesday-dis- tance, four hundred miles." It was done thus : He went from Brighton, in an afternoon coach, that set him down in London in time for the Holyhead mail, and this mail, with the help of the steamer to cros...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 August 1833

CORRESPONDENCE: To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, MR. EDITOR,-With reference to the establish ment of-u The Native village " alluded to in your last paper, it may be well to look to how such matters are arranged, and managed on a some- what more extensive scale, in British North Ame- rica, and in the United States. Before we do so, however, I beg to subscribe fully to the sentiments so well expressed by your valuable correspondent Philaleth. Of his humanity, and mental ability, no one can fonn a doubt, even for one moment, -but his opinions on this question, appear to be founded upon reading, and general information, and his conclusions therefore, are drawn from these sources only, and the dictates of his own heart. Mine are derived from a personal intercourse of several years with the tribes, whose rapid civiliza-   tion he so ably describes, and a knowledge ofthat country, to which there is, in my opinion, none equal upon earth. It is pleasant to me, Mr. Editor, to ...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [SATURDAY, 2 o'clock a. m. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 August 1833

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [SATURDAY, 2 o'clock a.m.   We have this moment been informed of the arrival of Mr. Peel in Perth from the Murray, with intelligence that about 200 Natives of tribes hitherto unknown, had surrounded the settlement in that quarter, but evinced the most amicable disposition. Their object in congregating at this spot, is at present questionable ; His Honor the Lieutenant Governor has therefore ordered a detachment of the   63rd to proceed to the Murray, to re-   enforce the station, and is upon the point of starting himself, accompanied by Thomas   Peel, Esq., to inquire into this     singular, but interesting occurrence.   Capt. Ellis and Mr. Norcott, Super- intendents of the Native tribes, with the   three King George's Sound Natives are ordered to proceed with all despatch in the same direction. WE are under the necessity of post-     poning...

GENERAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 September 1833

GENERAL REMARKS. In the course of this expedition we collected several specimens of Mineralogy of the country we traversed, among these are some varieties of granite, rock-crystal, and limestone : some of them appear to be metalliferous. We estimated the distance from Mr. Brockman's house to the river which washes the base of the Dyott hills, and which was the extreme point or termination of our joi'^nev, +o be about 40 miles in a due easterly course^ and to which there is no obstacle of suffi- cient importance to prevent a good communication being opened. The general characteristic of the soil of the country to the eastward of Mount Mac- kie, winch we conceived to be the eastern extremity of Darling's range, was a light sandy loam, the y^ subsoil of which was clay, which occasionally ap- peared on the surface ; in some places there was a rich red loam, and the banks of the last mentioned river were principally alluvial.

DESCRIPTION OF THE TERRITORY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA, FROM DOCUMENTS IN THE OFFICE OF THE HON. J. S. ROE, ESQUIRE, SURVEYOR-GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 September 1833

DESCRIPTION OF THE TERRITORY OF WESTERN A USTRALIA, FROM DOCUMENTS IN THE OFFICE OF THE HON. J. S. ROE, ESQUIRE, Su RVEYOR-GENERAL . THE following description of the Territory of Western Australia is taken from the Journals deposited in the Surveyor-General's Office, by the Gentlemen whose names are attached to the vari- ous discoveries. Our object in laying this information, before the public is, as we have stated previously, to furnish satisfactory data of our unbounded resources as a Colony, and to remove an opinion, which we suspect has been too generally entertained, that available land for Agricultural purposes is too remotely situated from the capital and the sea port, to hold out inducements to the Emigrant to resort to our shores. That this opinion is errone- ous, a perusal of the following extracts, as well as recent experience, will, we are persuaded, fully establish. Asa perfect knowledge of the country on this side of the Darling Bange of Mountains, has been arrived at ...

The Commissioner put it to the plaintiff to shew his exclusive right, and to produce the in- strument or form in which the right of ferry was conveyed to Mr. Thompson. Mr. Weavell stated, that it was assigned by letter. The Com.-Unless I can see some grant from the Government, what have I to act upon ? Let- ters will not do for me. There may be a material difference in granting such a privilege; for in- stance, it may extend to the whole of the river, or be confined to certain limits- I must see the grant.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We must decline giving insertion to " HERALDI- CUS," as his contribution, or most probably the production of some old Dowager Duchess in disguise, is calculated to open the sluice-gates of slander, which shall never find a passage through our columns. Public events are our immediate province ;-we have nothing to do with private dinners, further than to enjoy them, -certainly not to revile and slander the donor.

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 September 1833

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL The public have again experienced a delay in forwarding communications to their friends in England, arising from the whim or caprice of the master of the 'Cape Breton,' and a report has been sedulously set abroad that the remark which appeared in this Journal, under the head of Shipping Intelligence, upon the state of the vessel when she arrived at this port, was the occasion of it. As the party has left the colony, we are reluct- ant to take any further notice of the sub- ject, than to request any of his friends, if he has left one behind him, to confirm this rumour of the alleged grievance, we shall then know how to treat the mat- ter.-Assuming that we were in error, our columns are at all times open to cor- rection,-it is a gross injustice therefore to inflict an injury upon the public to revenge a supposed private wrong.

THE NATIVES. INTERESTING INTERVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 September 1833

THE NATIVES. INTERESTING INTERVIEW. The natives of Yellowgonga's tribe, to which Yagan's has recently been united, have for some time expressed to Mr. F. Armstrong a wish to appear before the Lieutenant Governor ; in order to gratify them Migo and Munday, had an audience on Wednesday last, which led to the dieclosure of some of the most interesting facts, connected with their habits, which have hitherto been elicited. Mr. F. Armstrong, who appears to have acquired a very con- siderable knowledge of the native lan- guage, acted as their interpreter, and the conversation was carried on with a de- gree of fluency we could scarcely have anticipated. It may not be unimportant to notice, that before they appeared be- fore His Honor, Migo beged for soap and water to wash himself, and Munday made all the preparations his scanty cloak would allow, to present himself decently. At first he started with his spear, but afterwards threw it back to be taken care of by one of his tribe. The Lieuten...

EDITOR,-The information and pleasure derived from the letter of your correspondent Veritas, in your paper of the 3ist of August re- specting the Natives of North America, and whose knowledge of the subject is sufficiently portrayed to render it important to this Colony, have in- duced me to offer a few remarks upon a matter which is at present in that state either to be brought to maturity by judicious arrangement, or nipped in the bud by neglect,-I allude to the Es tabishment of a permanent good understanding with the Aborigines. Speaking of the Officers employed by the Go- vernment of North America, Veritas states " That in order to ensure a good understanding through them, no man there thinks of interfering with them in their duties ;'' had this system been acted upon here, the Officers employed would have more favourable reports to make of our advance to a friendly communication with the Natives, but there have been so ...
