THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 April 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 1834. BY the Quebec Trader we have intelligence from England up to the 8th of November last, and from the Cape of Good Hope to the 27th of February. Our European and Cape news adds but little to our previous information. We rejoice that the anxiety generally expressed for the arrival of our Governor Sir JAMES STIRLING,   will soon be set at rest, and that we may now confidently look for him, accompanied by his amiable Lady and family, in the course of the ensuing month, provided no untoward accident   should befall them ; which, may Providence avert ! It appears, as far as we can collect from private   communications, no Despatches having reached the Local Government, that His Majesty s Minis- ters have recommended and will pursue the strict- est economy towards this as well as other Colonies ;   it will therefore remain for us to unite heart and hand to advance our mutual interes...

PRESENTATION OF PLATE TO CAPTAIN SIR JAMES STIRLING, R. N. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 April 1834

PRESENTATION OF PLATE TO CAPTAIN SIR JAMES STIRLING, R. N. THE CHAIRMAN said, he now rose to enter more particularly into the object for which they had that night met—the discharge, he might term it, of a double duty, to propose the health of an individual who was then their honored guest, and to request his acceptance of that which stood before him, as a slight memorial of the affectionate and respectful feeling which they all entertained for him. He felt his own incapacity to discharge, as he ought to do, the duty which devolved upon him, but any defect of that kind was at once, he was happy to think, made up for by the situation in which their Gallant and esteemed Friend was placed. As a public man, Governor Stirling was then their guest—as a public man they tendered him this little present—a slight, but sincere tribute of their esteem. Facts were sufficient. He knew not a more honorable situation for a man than the one in which their Gallant Friend then stood—a situation which n...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 May 1834

[ VARIETIES. NEW POWE R.-There is a prospect that in a few years-perhaps months-the whole system of Steam-enginery will undergo n new revolution. Some of our readers are probably aware, that no material improvement in steam-engine machinery can obtain any chance" of being adopted, unless the inventor could produce a saving of at least five eights in the expense of fuel ; because, otherwise, it will not indemnify the proprietor of an engine to avail himself of the improvement. Mr. Ericson, however, is about to take out a patent for the em- ployment of a new power-that of heated air ; in which he offers a saving of eight-tenths. He has amply proved the practicability of his projection ; for an engine of one horse-power, upon the new principle, has been working upon his premises for th.-5 last three months with complete success.. It has been inspected by the most eminent practical engineers in the country.- Spectator. WASTE OF COHN IN AGRICULTURE. - It is estimated that only one-third ...

WHALE FISHERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 May 1834

WHALE FISHERIES. DURIN» the last year there have been some symptoms of decline in our Whale Fisheries, owing, we believe, to the great wants, viz-the want of capital, the want of hands, and the want of skill." There has, however, been no want of Fish. The mine of wealth has by no meant» been ex- hausted ; we only want the means of working it Skill is the only thing required to make this branch of industry a national benefit. With un- practised hand«, both labour and capital will only be thrown away. Of this we had a remarkable instance in the decline of the Dutch Whale Fishery. So long as they could command expert fishers and seamen, the Dutch Fishing Companies experienced un- bounded success. In 1680 the Dutch Whale Fishery employed about 260 ships, and 14,000 sailors. After having been excluded from the sea by protracted wars for a period of nearly 30 years, the Hollanderd found that they had lost all that practical acquaintance with the details of the Fishery, for which they had ...

CAPE NEWS: (From the "South African Advcrtitcr") THE reader will find below a ,copy of the " Sscond Annual Report of the Cape of Good Hope Agricultural Society," which ire need scarcely say will afford very great pleasure to every Friend of Improvement.

EAST INDIA COMPANY'S CHARTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 May 1834

EAST INDIA COMPANY'S CHARTER. THE following remarks on an important part of the New India Act, are taken from the Times of Sept. 11:-   In the former acts for renewing the East India Company's Charter our eastern empire was barred against Englishmen as against enemies, unless they obtained a license from the Directors to enter its ports or reside in its territories. By the present bill it is made lawful for all "the natural-born   subjects of his Majesty to proceed by sea to any port or place having a Custom-house, and to re- side thereat, or to proceed into the interior and reside," with certain exceptions, which are likely soon to be abolished. ' But the clause which pleased us most in the whole bill, containing, as it does, a sentence of condemnation on all our former Indian policy, is the following :-" And be it further enacted, that no native of the said territories, nor any natural born subject of his Majesty resident therein, shall by reason only of ...

COLONIAL REVENUE.

GENTLEMEN,-The Petition which you- present- ed to me this day, has received due consideration from myself, and the Members of the Executive Council. Tlie document has been considered, not as the Petition of the Agricultural Society merely, but as conveying the sentiments and wishes of a large body of the Settlers generally. The produce of the Taxes hitherto imposed on the Colony, have been greatly disproportionate to its unavoidable expenditure ; and no instructions have been yet received from His Majesty's Go- vernment for the appropriation of any part of the Colonial Revenue to specific purposes; con- sequently all the disbursements on account of the Colony have been made out of the Common lund with out any distinction as to the various sources from which that fund ...

CAPTURE OF FOUR NATIVES AT THE MURRAY RIVER. ONE NATIVE SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 May 1834

CAPTURE OF FOUR NATIVES AT THE MURRAY RIVER. ONE NATIVE SHOT. IN consequence of the depredations committed by the Murray River Natives at the Flour Mill opposite Perth, Capt Ellis and a party of the 21st Regt. proceeded to the Murray to apprehend   certain natives, whose names had been given to Capt Ellis by the Swan River tribe, as having premeditated the attack. On the arrival of the   party at the Murray, they learned that two na-       tives had come over from the Swan, and had communicated that a party of soldiers were on       their way down. The men, therefore, got into   the barracks under cover of the night, and the   following morning remained concealed in the store until some native women arrived. They said the men were away and would not come in for some days. On the corporal inquiring for Ya- dong, one of the party concerned in the robbery, t...

CHARGE AGAINST THE NATIVES. DEPOSITION TAKEN BEFORE THE HON. W.H. MACKIE, ESQ., JUSTICE OF THE PEACE. May 1, 1834.   George Shenton, of Point Belches, near Perth, in this Colony, gentleman, being sworn, saith, on Thursday last, the twenty-fourth instant, about nine o'clock in the forenoon, a party of natives at least thirty in number came up to the Mill, at Point Belches, in which I reside. I was then entirely by myself, no other person being on the same side of the river within some miles, to my knowledge. I was in the Mill when I saw them coming; and as I recognised them to be the Murray River Natives, (they themselves having told me so a day or two before), I shut the door of the mill. They came up and wanted me to go and call Captain Ellis, for the purpose of taking them across the river in his boat; but as I suspected they merely wanted to get me out of the mill, and then to rob it, I did not move. By promising 2 of them some flour if the others went away, I persua...

PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 3 May 1834

PUNISHMENT. YEY-DONG, and Gummol, were pub- licly flogged directly they were brought up to Perth : previous good conduct, and the circumstance of their not being prin- cipals in the robbery, combined with their abstaining from offering any vio- lence, induced His Honor the Lieute- nant Governor to order but a slight punishment to be inflicted upon them : the younger one received 15 and the other 25 lashes. They are youths about 17 and 19 years of age, finely formed, and their countenances extremely pre- possessing. Wamba, or Jack, was pardoned, on the ground of his having been long in the confidence of Mr. Hall, of the Murray River, and in considera- tion of representations made in his favor by Mr. Thomas Peel, and Mr. Hall. The extent of the punishment to be in- flicted upon Galute was left to be decided in Council on the following day. The result of the inquiries and investigation instituted by the Council was, a deter- mination to flog him with severity, and   to ret...
