Swan River. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 September 1829

Swan River. " We some time ago had an article relative to i'la ne«v settle- ment about to he established on the Swan Uiver, New Hol- land, in which we observed, that it was desirable Government should make no grants of land to persons who did not them-1 selves intend to emigrate. We hule imagined at the time that the v» hole settlement, or at least all the valuable parts of I it, had, in fact, been parcelled out amongst tlnee gentlemen, I two of whom have no idea of emigrating., These lucky indi- viduals are, of conrse, well connected. One of them is said to be an illegitimate son of a late Royal Duke ; another is au il- legitimate son of a Noble Lord ; and the third is a ielation,of the Right Hon. Robert Peel,,SecreIaryofStato.'for\heHome, Depaitment. But of these three lucky individuals, the most lucky is the last.

Bridge across the Derwent. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 September 1829

Bridge across the Derwent     In our Paper of 12th June last, we entered at some length into the subject of erecting a Bridge across the River Der- went, somewhere about the Black Snake ; and we published a sensible letter from a Correspondent, signed "Observer,"   stating his thoughts and opinions thereon, and requesting to know from us what was likely to be done in so desirable and necessary a public convenience. "We have not since that period been able to answer the in- terrogatories of our Correspondent, but it is some gratifica- tion to us to find that our suggestions are likely to meet with some attention from the Government, if the information we have just received should turn out to be correct. We recom mended, that one of the penal Settlements, especially Maria Island, should be broken up, and that a broad and sufficient causeway of stone should be made, extending a mile across the dead water of the river, which is quite shallow at the...

The natives. We omitted last week to notice that Mr. Batman, and the   party under his orders fell in with a tribe, comprising 70 in number, of the Native Blacks, at Benlomond. The sable tribe had no less than 40 dogs.'.whose barking alarmed the party - The natives, so formidable in point of numbers, made the first attack with their spears. By their cunning, thev succeeded in creeping down within 20 yards of the party, when thev were obliged in their own defence to fire and rush forward, when a complete route of the blacks ensued ; about 15 were killed and wounded, and several taken, among whom, were one or two most notorious Chiefs, with many ornaments about their bodies The party succeeded in killing upwards of twenty of their large dogs, and taking a great number. Of their spears, waddles blankets, rugs, knives, &c. ; and also fell in with upwards of 80 huts ¡n different directions.     We now almost despair of seeing any number of t...

They have also appeared within this month, at Mr. King's, Mr. Gatehouse's, and Mr. Webber's ; but did no damage   there. Parties have been out in all directions, but without success. They are really the most surpising creatures in the world.
