VAN DIEMENS LAND NEWS. (From the "HOBART TOWN COURIER," March 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 10 May 1834

VAN DIEMEN S LAND NEWS. (From the "HOBART TOWN COURIER,5' March 14. IN our last wo briefly announced the distressing fact that number» of the lately arrive d emigrants were out of work, or so partially employed in their various callings, as scarcely to obtain a sub- sistence for »he.»selves and families. Since that time we have received the letter from Mr. Light- foot on the same subject, which is inserted in our last page. That gentleman, who is one of the largest master tradesmen in Hobart town, denies that there are 32 journeymen tailors in the colony. The fact however is certain that that number of persons signing themselves as tailors have ad- dressed his Excellency expressing the dislress in which themselves and families are now placed for the want ol' employment, and <>n further inquiry we find that not only 32 but between 50 and 60 may be enumerate^ in the same situation. We do not dispute that many of them may not be expeit tradesmen, but what d >es this sh...

DISGRACEFUL OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 10 May 1834

DISGRACEFUL OUTRAGE. A most disgraceful and unjustifiable outrage is reported to have been committed by the pri- vates of the detachments of the 45th, 55th, and 63rd Regts, at Garden Island. For the sake of the service to which these men are attached, we do hope to find that the rumour is exaggerated ; but placing every reliance on the source from which our information is derived, we feel it our duty to give the particulars, however extravagant and incredible the statement may appear. It seems the soldiers wives were permitted to go on shore from the Lonach transport for the purpose of washing, but by what means, or by whose au- thority the men landed, we have not been able to ascertain-it is enough for us to know that they were on shore, and wantonly set fire to the is- land, occasioning the destruction of the buildings erected by Governor Stirling as his temporary residence at the commencement of the Colony, the barracks, the stores, and several huts and out- houses. A buoy valued...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 10 May 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1834. WÉ REGRET to learn that His Honor Lieutenant Governor Daniell is labour- ing under serious indisposition. THE events of the past fortnight have again given occasion for reports of ag- gression and bloodshed on the part of the Natives, with their consequences. We refer our readers to the particulars which will be found in another column, leaving them to draw their own conclusions of their individual safety from the recital of the circumstances attending this unfor- tunate affair. If apprehensions are en- tertained, in a body let the settlers proclaim it, but let us not hear of partial means being resoted to, or private in- terest weighing against the public good. How to regulate our conduct towards the Natives, seems to be a problem, which neither our community, or state policy can solve. As regards the former, we can only again reier them to the circumstances connected with this affair, to sooth their minds, if fear or terror e...

BOTANICAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE DARLING RANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 10 May 1834

BOTANICAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE DARLING RANGE. THE following information, collected during an excursion over the Darling Range, will be found of great interest to those inquisitive upon the subject of botanical research ; from the acknow- ledged ability of the writer, we can safely venture to vouch for the accuracy of his representations. His remarks are confined to the line of road to, and the neighbourhood of York. AT the Rushy Stream we observed a species of gum tree different fom any we have been on this side of the hills ; at the half way house they call it the black butted gum : in general appearance it nearly resembles the mahogany. Here on the banks of the stream near the garden, we saw the first specimens of the large glaucus-leaved acacia or wattle, so common in the York District, and called by the settlers iron wood. On the road- side we saw many shrubs which, from their leaves and seed (their flower being passed), we knew to be different to any on this side of the hills. A...

THE NATIVES AGAIN!! [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 10 May 1834

THE NATIVES AGAIN ! ! A NATIVE SHOT—AND A SOLDIER   SPEARED —We noticed last week the depredations committed by the natives of   the Northern tribe at Mr. Burgess' on     the Upper Swan ; the following are the   particulars :— A house in which Mr. Burgess stored   his corn, situated at a distance from his own residence, was plundered by the natives, and about 7 bushels of wheat were stolen. Mr. Locke Burgess hap- pened to go to the house at the time they were busied in removing a further quantity of grain ; at his approach, how- ever, they relinguished their purpose, and met him with their usual gesticula- tions, indicating a friendly disposition. Mr. Burgess seeing several spears rest- ing against the side of the house, in a moment of irritation placed his foot upon them and broke them ; this aroused the indignation of the natives, and they instantly prepared themselves to resent the injury. Fearful of ap...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 May 1834

NEW SOUTH WALES. THERE is one article of produce in this country, j fine woo 1, in which the best interests t f the colo- { ny are centered It is not procured in America ; while the rapid increase of machinery in that 5 country has caused a great demand fur it. We ! have íong supposed that the Ameiicans will avail themselves of the kn wledge of our wool seasons, \ and speculate largely in this article, and will send j it direct to Boston OJ New York. Not only is the i wool trade taking á'ncw direction, and suffering a j revulsion, from the places of import being altered in Great Britain, but in America attempts are in progress to procure shipments direct, without the process of parsing through the hands of r.vals in the trade. The shipment of wool from New South Wales to Liverpool, and from New South Wales to Boston, although apparently mattera of minor | importance, will he attended with more beneficial \ consequences to our mei chants, than all other \ change6* that have been effe...

Alfred Davis, a passenger on board the Quebec Trader, proved that the vines, and hop plants were on board, and in a flourishing condition when he saw them last, which was about a fortnight before he was told by Mr. Gibbs that they were thrown overboard. He did not see them thrown over- board. The filtering stone he saw on board the vessel in the docks, and afterwards on the wharf. He was not aware that any freight had been paid, or was to be charged upon either the plants or the filter.
