ON THE WAGES OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 November 1833
ON THE WAGES OF LABOUR. A correspondent, on the correctness of whose opinion in colonial matters we place great reliance, has favoured us with the following letter on the subject of the disappointed emigrants by the William, adverted to in our last. It does not certainly follow that because he pays the expert workmen he alludes to the wages he mentions, that situations of equal émolument are open to the passengers by the William, or that they are capa- ble of undertaking them if they were open to them If there were one or two such, it is we believe all, and even they to our knowledge after every exer- tion and inquiry, have not been able to find em- ployment. Nay, what is worse, we know that the great majority of the passengers by the last 3 or 4 merchants vessels that arrived are yet out of employment. Our friend ailows that there is no want of what he calls the commonest sort of la- bourers, and truly the chief part of those who have been induced to come out by the deceptive metho...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 November 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL BY the i( I rilliant" front England we Jbave received letters and papers up to the 27th of June. The following is a hurried outline of the principal topics which engrossed the public attention up to that date : The Times of the 15th June appre- hends that the leaders of the " Conserva- tive" faction meditate a direct war upon the Nation, and remarks-"Petitions, remonstrances, declarations of distrust in a " conservative" ministry ought to be prepared in case of necessity ; the House of Commons ought to be on the alert, and, should event* require them, b$ ready to pass resolutions and addresses to the sovereign, that a specific person, whcm we will not now name, should be dis- missed for ever from the service of the Crown." This certainly indicates some misgivings on the part of the Wig ad- ministration. The excitement which prevailed in England at the time the Brilliant left, with regard to public business of greater consideration than our iaterests, t...

WEST INDIA QUESTION [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 November 1833
WESrl INDIA QUESTION A vote of £20,000,000 as compensa- tion to the West India proprietors, wai carried by a great majority ; and Lord Althorp said the utmost precaution would be taken in the management of the loan,* and not a farthing would be advanced by Government until the emancipation of the slaves was fully and fairly carried into effect. The arrear of public business in the* House of Commons is altogether without precedent. It is understood that Govern- ment are anxious to press lorvvard the* West India resolutions-the Bill itself to stand over until next sessions-to open the East India Question, and to pass the Irish Church Reform Bill We think they will postpone many important mea- sures now under consideration, and that, notwithstanding present appearances? Parliament will be up by the 10 July. Record.

Cob bett and Sir Robert Peel. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 November 1833
Cob bett and Sir Robert Peel. Mr.Cobbett brought forward his motion in the House of Commons on the 16th of May, for an address to the throne re» questing that His Majesty would dismiss from his Councils the Right Hon. Sir Robert Peel-that as the author of q, Rill in 1819, by which the paper currency of the country was changed for a gold one, he had inflicted a great wrong upon the people. The motion was rejected by a majority of 294 against 4, and the House testified their opinion of Mr. Cobbett's motion by coining to a resolution " That the proceedings on this debate be expunged from the Journals of the house/' i he Ministry were left in a minority on a resolution moved by the Duke of Wellington " that a humble address be presented to His Majesty to entreat that His Majesty will be graciously pleased to give such directions as will be neces- sary to enforce the observance by his subjects of his Majesty's declared neutra- lity in the contest now carrying on in Portugal. / Edmund Kea...

SCARCITY OF MONEY IN VAN DIEMEN S LAND. (From the "Tasmanian.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 November 1833
SCARCITY OF MONEY IN VAN DIEMENÖ LAND. (From the "Tasmanian.") The depressed state of the Colony, and the great scarcity of money, are pressing forcibly upon the attention of all classes of the community. At no former period, perhaps* has the want of money been so distressingly experienced, as it is at the present moment ; and, although public credit i¿ not yet shaken- at least to any extent-the diffi- culty of procuring money to meet one's engage- ments, is daily becoming more formidable. The cause of this lamentable state of things is variously accounted for. Some say, that overtrading baa created the evil, while others attribute it to what they term the unjust dealings of usurers. Others again place it all to the account of the mode adopt- ed by Government of hoarding up its monies ; and others, to the extravagant and untimely specula- tions of private individuals. We are quite aware that a good deal has been said on this subject, and that some of our Con- temporaries have, with ...
APPEARANCE OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 November 1833
APPEARANCE Oí« THE COUNTRY. THE country, at the present time, pre- sents a most delightful and cheering prospect, and we feel considerable satis- faction in reporting, from actual obser- vation within the last tew days, the highly luxuriant condition of the crops. The apprehension we hinted at last week that the harvest would not be so good this year as the last, applies merely to the seed which was sown late in the feeason : the early sown wheat, say that sown in May, is looking as ime as can possibly be desired. Generally speaking where the wheat has been sown late, it was not from choice but necessity-the iarmer having met with difficulties, from either the want, or the exorbitant price of labour ; the expediency therefore of early sowing where practicable is fully established. Notwithstanding this flour- ishing state of the crops, and the prospect of an abundant harvest, two evils are fctill dreaded-a scarcity of labour to get an the crops, and the abscence of an im- mediate mar...

That their present dividends, to the amount of £630,000, which the proprietors are in the usual receipt of, should be secured to them by an annui- ty, to be charged on the territorial revenues of India ; and on the territorial revenues of India on...

HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 November 1833
HOLLAND. The Preliminary Treaty between Great Britain and France, and Holland, for the protection of Belgium, may be considered as concluded. There is 'an end, therefore, for the present, to that ques- tion ; but the domestic troubles of Belgium it ap- pears, are about to begin. The whole country is in a ferment from the action of the elections ; but as the local politics of Belgium would be entirely uninteresting to our readers, wj? shall not occupy our space with the accounts' of their election proceedings. Whatever thé' result of the elections may be, they cannot alter the discordance of a Protestant King and a dominant Catholic population. This is the real perplexed state of the domestic politics of Belgium.
SUMMARY NEWS, JUNE 15. (From the "Spectator.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 November 1833
SUMMARY NEWS, JUNE 15. (From the" Spectator.") If a measure were complete without details,-if the mere passing of resolutions, and the sanction of a principle, were sufficient to set great questions at i est,-then, indeed, the members of the British House of Commons migt fairly be allowed to con- gratulate themselves on their labours of the past week, the importance of which it would be dfficuit to exaggerate. On Monday and Tuesday, the remainder of Mr. Stanley's resolutions for the extinction of Colonial Slavery were adopted by large majorities. Al- though many disapprove of the mode in which this great work is to be accomplished, it is gratifying to find that not a single voice was lilted up against it. The victory which the better feelings of our countrymen have gained, io one which the philan- thropist may well rejoice to contemplate. How great a change has been wrought in the land, since the slave-trade, with all its horrors, was stienu ously defended by men still living, and t...
