THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 January 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL SATURDAY, JANUARY l8, 1834. As THE period approaches at which we may reasonably anticipate the arrival j of SIR JAMES STIRLING, increased anxi- ety prevails-all classes pinning their faith upon the wholesome and salutary "measures, which will come into operation on his return. We require some orga- nized system to be set at work to afford us a supply of labourers and domestic* servants;-roads and bridges are a grand desideratum, for facilitating the conveyance of produce and supplies to" and from the several farms, the expense attending which frequently induces the farmer rather to leave his productions to rot at home, than incur the expense of carrying them to market. He cannot reach Perth by water within a mile and a half, at this season of the year, owing to the state of the flats-which we cannot afford £400 to remove I This has been 'a grievance of long standing, and will it is hoped form one of the first objects of consideration Lastly to work the...

MR. FERGUSSON S NOTES ON THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA, IN 1831. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 January 1834

MR. FLLIGUSSONS -JÍOTES ON THE UNIT« D SlATiS AND CANADA, IN 1831. I frequently visited the seed-store of Mr. Thor- burn ; a character of some celebrity, and of great originality, being, as he informed nie at our first interview, the " very identical Lawrie Todd," and that, so far as the first volume of that entertaining work goes, Mr. Galt had exactly recorded his life and adventures. Besides other'sources of employ- ment, Mr. Thorburn is distinguished for a lively and unfailing reliance upon a special-over-ruling Providence ; not a blind fatalism, but a conviction, that in all' the crosses of life, a blessing will be found for those who faithfully seek it. He detail- ed many singular illustrations of this doctrine in his own history, and altogether gratified me much by his acquaintance. ' His original profession was that of »a' nail-maker, at Dalkeith, and by that alone he looked for a livelihood in the New World. Soon after his arrival, however, this handicraft nas annihilated by...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette; January 4, 1634. SIR,-If you considered it necessary, in your last number, to notice the observations in tlití' Hobart Town Courier, on the execution, at Perth* of the native chief Midgegooroo, I think you should have given a greater space in .our column«, to the exculpation of the parties, whom I am sur« it was your wish to defend. You appear, however, iivthis instance, to have forgotten that your jour nal, in common with every oilier, possessing any degree of public interest, will find its way to the farthest corner of the civilized world,-and that, therefore, no statement should be brought forward in it to the prejudice, either of the government, or the governed, in the country of which you are at present the public organ, without that statement being accompanied by such remarks, founded «port undoubted facts, as will place the matter before the world in its proper light. A simple denial «f such a charge, and where such very str...

SALE OF STOCK AT FREMANTLE. 90 head of Sheep imported per "Australian." were sold on Thursday last, by public auction, pur- suant to advertisement, at 35s. each; 6 Cows £I8 each ; Goats £2 10s. ; a small Sow £2 10», Horses were put up at £35 and £50., but were withdrawn. Grapes have been plucked during the week in the Government Gardens ; the quantity was but trifling, but it would have been greater, had not some young urchins committed depreda- tions in the garden. There are also a few peaches, nearly ripe. « His Honor Lieutenant Governor Daniell attend- ed the funeral of John Green, which took place al 7 o'clock on Thursday morning. DEATH OCCASIONED BY THE FALL-   ING IN OF A WELL. — On Wednesday morning last about 9 o'clock, an alarm was given, which soon collected a con- course of people around the spot, namely, that the Lieutenant Governor's well had fallen in, and that John Green, a brick- layer, was buried in the ruins.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette. SIR,- Having observed with regret foul samples of Wheat which haye been produced |n this Colony, I am induced -to hand you the following observations, acquired from long.expe ~ nenee in agricultural matters ; and should they prove worthy of notice, I may again trouble you, and shall feel infinite pleasure, should those not thoroughly practised in agricultural affairs, reap any benefit from what is now submitted to their consideration by an old farmer of twenty-five years' experience. It lias long been a matter of dispute with our most scientific men, whether the smut is a disease, or animalcule, but that point it is not my wish or intention to enter into ; the nuisance we have, and the question is, how to get rid of it. I can only say, and I say with confidence, if care is not taken, the wheat of this Colony will very soon be unfit to make bread of. Ï have farmed extensively in England, Scotland, and Wales, and I found that the bak...

LONDON POLICE;—MARLBOROUGH STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

LONDON POLICE;-MARLBOROUGH STRÍET. MAY 10.--A RISING GENIUS.-Mike Smith, <i ragged young urchin, who, though hardly able to peep over the bar, has been in custody more than | a dozen times for petty thefts, was charged by William King, cobbler and ginger-beer maker, with having stolen a bottle of ginger beer from his stall.-The prosecutor declared that the neigh- bourhood of his stall was so infested w ith young thieves that he found it utterly impossible to turn j an honest penny, for if his eyes were olf the ' board foran instant he was sure to discover that a ¡ bottle or two had suddenly vanished. On Monday s Iaht he happened to cast his eyes where the ginger i^seer stood, when he was much surprised to see a I bottle move oil* the board, without any person being Í within sight. Upon looking out of the door the ¡ mjhtery was explained, for there he saw the delinquent making a rapid retreat on all fours, with the ginger-beer (the cork of which had flown out) fizzing out ...

SALE OF GOVERNMENT WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

SALE OF GOVERNMENT WHEAT. On Tuesday last, a public sale of con- demned government wheat took place at Fremantle, (Mr. Win Samson, govern- ment auctioneer,) which realized a high price, considering the state of the market, and reported state of the wheat. The quantity submitted for sale did not exceed 70 bushels, which were knocked down in small lots-bags of 180 lbs. to 220 lbs, at an average of 8*. per bushel, On Friday a sale ol' 160 bushels belonging lo government also took place, the average price of which was, as near as we could estimate it, the lots consisting of 6 bags, each containing about 2 bushels, and some odd casks, contents unknown, at an average of about 5s. 9d. The wheat sold at Fremantle was a portion of the importation per Jane', from Hobart-town. That disposed of at Perth was weevilly and otherwise damaged from the inadequate accommodation af- forded for the storing of grain, although under existing circumstances the only place which could be found suitable for a...

The AUSTRALIAN, Oct., 833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

The AUSTRALIAN, Od., SS¿'. I3y the accounts which we have received from the various districts throughout the Colony, there does not appear to have been a more discouraging season for many years, in some parts there has hardly been any ram for at least nine months, mid" m none has there been nearly a sufficiency. Even along the i oast line the weather has been uniformly dry, aud the Equinox has passed without its usual accompaniment of refreshing ..howers. The con- sequence is, that in many districts hardly a blade of grass is vh,ible, and the wheat has of courte been rieárly de(stro\ed it is to be hoped that there is no failure of crops to the southward, or our friend» there Will lose the advantage which prescht appeal anees promise them, of high prices, and, a ready market for their surplus wheat, m »hi» Colo- ny. We are informed that the drought is not severely« felt in the Upper Hunter, Appin, and Airds, Argyle (throughout) and ..Bathurst, while every other part of the Countty su...

MODERN AND ANCIENT DANCING. (From "CONSTANCE," a new Work.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

MODERN AND ANCIENT DANCING. (From " CONSTANCE," a new Work.) This beginning troke the ice, as it were, of that coldness, which the girlish timidity of Constance, and the consciousness of Sir Charles, had esta- blished hitherto between them. For the first time, the Baronet saw her in her true colours. The originality of her character, its native honor, the wildness of her spirits when uncontrolled, the yet delicacy of her feelings, bioke upon hini by degrees ; for he possessed a quick discernment of excellence, and that which he had hitherto only imagined her to be, he found her actually to prove, very difficult did this young couple find it to sepa- rate when the dance began, and to stand, liku a regiment of soldiers, in tno separate lines, gazing at each other whilst an insurmountable barrier of form was between them. But in the MOW dispised country dance, there were innumerable opportuni- ties of little insignificant attentions which are wholly impracticable in the measured step o...

MAGISTRATE'S COURT, FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

MAGISTRATE'S COURT, FREMANTLE. An information was laid, on Thursday   last, before G. Leake, Esq., J. Molloy, Esq., and Lieut. Mcleod, of H. M. 63d regt., against Anthony Curtis, for selling one gallon of Arrack, upon which the duty had not been paid. Richard Maxworthy, tide waiter and customs offi-     cer, seized the arrack on the person of John Armstrong, who had a short time previously purchased it of the defendant, in whose store, on receiving instructions from H. Mc B. Brown, Esq., collector of colonial revenue, he found a further quantity of two gallons. Anthony Curtis, in his defence, did not deny having sold the arrac ; but that he had it brought on shore from the Monkey, now lying in Gages Roads, for the purpose of giving it to his crew, which consisted of Malays. He stated that he had no intention of defrauding the revenue, but having it to spare, he unthinkingly disposed of it. Decided according to Clause 13, Act 10, that the spirit...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1834. THE Meeting which took place at the School-rooms on Saturday last, pursuant to advertisement, convened for the pur- pose of making some slight alterations in the arrangements, was but indifferently attended, — a circumstance much to be regretted, as it evinces a luke-warnmess on the part of the Directors and Subscrib-   bers highly prejudicial to the interests of   an institution, which claims the counte-   nance and support of every one of us, each being exposed in society to the per- nicious consequences of neglecting the tuition and the proper guidance of the younger branches of our community, religious instruction, and the habitual attendance at a place of worship, forms by no means a minor consideration in the education of youth; we, therefore, strong- ly commend the suggestion of His Honor Lieutenant Governor Daniell, that the parents should be, solicited to allow their &n...

(From the SYDNEY HERALD) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 January 1834

(From the SYDNEY HERALD ) The following beautiful observations, were lately | made, by Mr. C. Phillips, in his speech, on the prosecution of Mr. Lawson, of the Tunes, by Mr. Cobbett, for a Libel on his private character. The sentiments called forth a shout of applause The trial took place on the 28th June-and Mr. Cobbett received á>100. damages : " The Learned Counsel, in conclusion, said, I am no enemy to the liberty of the Press. On 'every subject within the legitimate sphere of its discussion, I would extend that liberty almost to licentiousness. In politics it should be as unfettered as the air. Public men, too, are public property ; if they are knaves they deserve no quarter; if they are honest they need fear no scrutiny, the ordeal of the the Press is one of the incidents of their distinc- tion ; they invite it by their ambition, standing forth before their fellows-standing forth as the candidates for fame and emolument, tliey invoke the verdict of the public opinion.

NEW SOUTH WALES INTELLIGENCE, (From the TASMANIAN, Nov. 8, 1833.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 February 1834

NEW SOUTH WALES INTELLIGENCE, (From the TASMANIAN, NOV. 8, 1833.) Sydney Journals to the 23d October, have reached us during the past week, from which we give the following extracts. Of the weather, and the prospect of the crops, they write thus " The early-sown well cultivated fields still, to the astonishment of every one, retain a fine colour and healthy appearance ; but, if the present wea- ther holds, the crop cannot fail to be short and light, as it is impossible the ears can fill without further moisture : the late-sown crops have gone off much within the month, or have made but slow progress, and little return can be expected from them. The price of wheat continues to rise in the interior. At present, at Goulburn Plains, the current price is 9s. per bushel, and many buy- ers, as most of the graziers begin to find their stock of grain fall short of their wants."-Sydney Gazette, 12th Ort " Whoever propose to contract with our Deputy Commissary General for grain, bread, or flou...

HOBART TOWN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 February 1834

)f I HOBART TOWN NEWS. The Commissariat have done wisely, in extend- ing the time of receiving tenders for the ensuing year, from the 12th November to the 3d Decem- ber, for if the present weather continue, it would have been quite impossible that pjiees could have been fixed so early in the season, with any thing li.,e sufficient accuracy, to remove from one or other of the contracting parties, the almost cer- tainty of very considerable loss. As it is, the fate of several < f our crops, will be torlerably fixed in the course of this month, and tho^c who tender therefore, will be able to judge, as to the manner in which they may be enabled to supply their several articles. Whilst upon the subject, we regret to say, that the accounts from all parts of the country, are most unfavourable, arising from the want of rain, representing that the grass is acrid and dry, not possessing the nutritious pro- perties, for which it is usually d ^tinguished at this season, and the grain...
