EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 March 1834

EUROPEAN NEWS. THE CONGRESS AT TOPLITZ.-The distance from Toplitz to Carlsbad is forty miles ; the road lies through one uninterrupted corn field, studded with the splendid domains of the Bohemjan noblesse, until you descend into the narrow valley' in which Carlsbad is built, by a road which is carried rouncj the ridge of the mountains, supported by arches varying from forty to fifty feet in height ;-a splendid work, that may fairly compete with the far-famed Simplón. Carlsbad is a very small place, containing not more than two or three thousand inhabitants ; but of all the temples of Hygeia in Germany, it is peihaps the most beau- tiful. So narrow is the valley in which it stands, that the mountains rise like walls close behind the houses, in all their rugged magnificence. There is not nearly the style here as at Toplitz : the visitors appearing rather in pursuit of health than pleasure. On our return to Toplitz, we found that the King of Prussia had already arrived. His Ma- jesty ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 March 1834

VAN DIEMENS LAND INTELLIGENCE. We have much pleasure in announcing the visit to our island of Baron Hugel, a passenger by the Alligator. The facility indeed with which gen- tlemen of science and research can now make the tour of the globe, compared with what it was in the days of Cook, Anson, and Perouse, is not only advantageous to natural and scientific re- search, but particularly gratifying to us in these remote and newly settled countries, which afford as it were so many oases or resting places in the great Pacific desert. Baron Hugel, who has but recently left Europe, has visited several parts of India,, and among others that recently opened field of naturalists the Neilgherry Mountains, He describes the vegetation of that lofty region as a most splendid kind, and we regret in particular that he did not bring us some of the seeds of the beautiful climbers with which the jungle theçe abounds, upwards of which 30 new species have recently been found, that would no doubt from the...

A HARD LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 March 1834

A HARD LAUGH. ^OW-STREET.-A young man of respectable ap- pearance, w ho stated that iiis name was Cave, and that he u.is a snopkeeper, residing in Tottenham court-road, was yesterday brought before Sir F. Roe, charged by a person named Symonds, who keeps an exhibition in High Holborn, near Drury lane, where wax ßgures and " pther natural curiosities are to be seen, for the small charge of one penny," with having caused a crowd to as semble before his door, which afforded the light fingured gentry an epportunity of making free with the King's lieges. It appeared that the defendant was passing the k door ol the complainant, when some object in the | window tickled his fancy, and, stopping in front of the house, he burot into a loud ñt of laughter, which naturally attracted the attention of "the passengers, and as laughting is said to i e con- tagious, the persons assembled soon joined in the merriment, and a general horse-laugh was raised without any visible mptive to induce it. Now M...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1834 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 March 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1834 BY the Merope from Hobart Town, we have our files of Van Diemen's Land Journals up to the 14th of February ; but we have not received any European intelligence of a later date than our previous news, say to the end of September. Extracts will be found under their several heads, descriptve of the course of events in the Sister Colonies. The price of wheat has advanced slightly, but by no means to such a degree as to indicate any extensive failure of the crops. Capt. Beete, of the 21st, has kindly favoured us with several numbers of the Standard for the month of September last. In one of which num- bers, the 2d of Sept., we find a list of the vessels lost on the 31st of August, during the tremend- ous hurricane which visited the English coast. No mention is made in this list of any of the vessels we know to have been on the point of sailing for this port; the story, therefore, of the loss of the James Patterson in the Channel, i...

MAGISTRATES COURT, PERTH, MARCH 19, 1834. Before the Hon. W. H. Mackie, and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom, J.'s P. John Jooroomoodee, a Javanese, was charged by John Gregory of the Pine-Apple Inn, publican, with robbing his garden on the morning of the 13th inst. The garden had been repeatedly rob- bed, he therefore kept a strict watch, and on the morning in question, saw a boat off Mr. Camfields on the opposite side of the river, and perceived that it was moving in a direction towards his place. He could not hear the sound of oars, but after a time saw a person pol.ing the boat astern. The boat was guided up to his landing-place, and a man, who afterwards proved to be the prisoner, went from the boat into his garden. He (the prisoner) then walked deliberately up to a melon bed and examined it, and afterwards went to other parts of the garden, and he was seen stoop- ing down in a bed of tomatoes. The complainant went towards him, and called out to him. He tried to turn round to get away ...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, APRIL 5,-1834. The following information respecting the Company formed at Calcutta for the purpose of trading and settling in this Colony, we have derived from Captain Pollock, uf the Barque Merope, who was at Calcutta at the time the Company was esta- blished, and to whom overtures were made to convey a number of* Mechanics to our shores. Captain Pollock left Calcutta for Hobart Town in September, when the Mercury had been purchased by the Company, and although she liad taken in a cargo for Singapore, it was subsequently dis- charged, and every exertion was making to get her in readiness to go to sea. Colonel Beacher, Captain Beadle, and Mr. Colder, are the Gen- tlemen who will accompany the first expedition, and their object in preceding the other Gentlemen interested in this adventure, is, to prepare the way, by selecting such situations as may be con- sidered most eligible for the scene of their future operations.

VARIETIES. A Travelled Posed.-" Humboldt," said a certain Captain in the West Middlesex Malitia, " Humboldt is an over-rated man ; there is very little in him, and he knows nothing of geography." " How ! that celebrated traveller know nothing of geography?" " No more than my black tarrier there, Sir. I once met him at the Russian Am bassador's at Paris and put him to the proof. As long as he was talking about the Andes and Cor- dilleras, and places which nobody but himself had ever heard of, he carried it all his own way, but the moment I put a straight-forward question to him which any school-boy might have answered, he was floored. 'Now, Baron,' said-1-taking him by surprise-' Now, Baron, can you tell me where Turnham Green is?'-Upon my honor \iq knew no more about it than I knew about Jericho."

VAN DIEMENS LAND INTELLIGENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 April 1834

VAN DIEMENS LAND INTELLIGENCE The recent destruction by fire, not only of the native pasture and fences, but in some cases of standing crop« and buildings throughout all part« of the Colony until arrested by the timely rai» on Monday last, has been most extensive, and must occasion a very considerable and gênerai colonial loss. Nothing is more difficult than to irace the origin of these fires, produced in most cases through the carelessness in lighting of j.-ipes and other occasions, but where it can be brought home to any party, the punishment of the law ought to be both prompt and severe. Te point should form a particular feature in the reports of all the districts sent in to his Excellency in council on the subject of the proposed fencing act, with the merits of which it is so intimately interwoven.

It is a matter of public notoriety, that many parts of the country have lately become infested with a race of wild dogs, and very extensive de- predations among the sheep in consequence daily take place, it is equally notorious ihat in many quarters it has become necessary to double the number of the shepherds and to watch the flocks by night as well as day and to surround them with large fires, but notwithstanding these pre- cautions the dogs make their attacks to the very serious injury of the settler.
