THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 17 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 May 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 17 1834. IT WILL be seen by reference to a Proclamation published in this day's Gazette, that in consequence of the con- tinued indisposition of Captain Daniell, the next Senior officer in command, Captain Beete, has assumed the reins of Government. THE SWAN AND AVON RIVERS.-By a recent discovery it has been fully and ' satisfactorily established (in confirmation of opinions long entertained), that j the Sawn and Avon Rivers are one an" the same. Mr Bland, accompanied by j Mr Agett and Mr. S. Trimmer, left! York on Sunday morning last, and foi- I lowing up the course of the Avon, after ¡ a journey of four days, arrived at Mr. j [ Shaw's, on the Upper Swan. Water ¡ was found in abundance, but in pools, j and not in a connected stream : they met ) I with considerable difficulty - in passing j along the banks of the River, as it was j . lined with rugged rocks of granite and ; quartz.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 17 May 1834

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND NEWS. THE ABORIGINAL SETTLEMENT. — A short time since, a quantity of useful articles, such as needles, tapes, &c, were forwarded to the above settle- ment by some charitable individual in this town, through the Commandant, Mr. Darling, for the use of the native women there. The receipt of the present has been warmly acknowledged by letter from Mr. Wilkinson, the superintendent, to a gentleman in town, as being just what was needed in the settlement. The native women had been shewn the articles, which they manifested a a wish to make use of immediately ; but as Mr. & Mrs. Wilkinson had only just arrived, they had not sufficiently completed their arrangements to   allow Mrs. W. to attend to the distribution of the.   donation. We are happy to hear that some of the children of both sexes have already been taught their alphabet ; three or four to spell, and one to read tolerably well, — Launceston Adver- tiser.

To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette." i _. .. . J .. . t SIR,-The high compliment which a short time ago you conferred, through the medium of your paper, on the management of the Government Garden, requires, in my opinion, bome few re- marks ; and which I*have now to thank you for affording me an opportunity of makings- In the firat place, I have not the least doubt that such at ihe time were your geniune sentiments, and given w ith the very best intentions ; in the second place, I beg most explicitly to be understood, when 1 say, that in whatever may now issue from my pen, it is without the most distant intention of disclaim- ing any or whatever merit may be due te either Mr. Drummond, or to his deputy, Mr. Cook. The oiiginal intentions of Governor Stirling, in the fotmation of that Garden, were laudable in the extreme, and no doubt would have proved a \ery great acquisition to the Colony at large, but I believe unforeseen circumstance intervened which occasioned some alteration i...

TO THE ELEPHANT AT THE ZOOLOGI- CAL GARDENS, Which a Lady on offering him a biscuit on her reticule, containing a Ten Pound Note, con- veyed the whole by means of his trunk into his mouth. Dear Elephant, it grieves me much to tell Your conduct has been lately very bad ; An inch being given, Sir. to take an eil; Is, with us humans deem d an action sad.. Yours, must we not then as atrocious view, . Such action, towards a lady, quite astounds, When she, a half-ounce biscuit offered you Snapp'd up, with monstrous greediness, ten. pounds ! Really, such doings I don't understand, Uless she owed you ought, and you thought best, Having no hand, to hold her note of hand, To put it in your trunk, thence in your chest. The thing is done-'tis needle s to complain We trust the lady ceases to look cross As you will easily digest the gain, May she as easily digest the loss.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 24 May 1834

VARIETIES. THE EYE.-The use of shades and bandages on eveiy trifling affection of the eye is an evil that cannot be too strongly reprobated ; for the action of light and air being thus excluded, and the organ rigidly compressed, opthalmi, and even total blind- ness, is not unfrequently the consequence of what, being perhaps mostly a slight flow of humour, ora little extravasated blood, would have subsided in a few days if judiciously treated, or even left to itt>elf.-Curtis on the Eye. ORATORY.- It was a notion of Dean Swift's that a man with a multitude of ideas could never speak well, whilst one with a limited number could address an audience without interruption. Ideas, he used pleasantly to say, were like a congrega- tion in a church, the thiner they were, the less difficulty there was in emptying the church. -United Kingdom. QUERY?-Why is man travelling on a camel through the deserts of Arabia, like another who is walking through a certain" part of Yorkshire ? Because he is ...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 24 May 1834

" r - THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL* -.-. SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1834. THE discovery of the junction of the Avon River with the Swan, we intimated last week afloided considerations of little importance, but it has since occur led to us that Mr. Blatdsparty, by only proceeding along the bank of the hiver, in one undeviating course, had little opportunity of marking spots which we know, from positive information, exist along the Mountain range highly favourable for the production of the vine, ihe fig, the olive, &c, &c, all of which our clima'e assists in their growth to perfection with wondeiful rapidity. Mr. Bland, weare inclined to believe, has viewed the country on the banks, of the Rivers Avon and Swan with the eye of an ex* tensive grazier, or agriculturist, but should that neighbouihood before long again be traversed by a person acquainted with countries most celebrated for their vineyards, &c, which we hope will be the case, we feel pcifectly convinced we s...

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette."   I SIR,—Having observed in your Paper of the 17th instant a hint respecting the application of the funds remaining in hand at the dissolution of the late Friendly Society, we, the undersigned, being formerly members of that Society, beg to state the following fact relating to their disposal. The Society was founded with the object of afford- ing assistance to sick members, &c, and funds were subscribed to the amount of £50, and up- wards, a portion of which was applied to that purpose. Dissensions having been unhappily in- troduced, and the Rules of the Society in too many instances trodden upon, we thought proper to withdraw our names—but with the understand- ing, that should the Society to dissolved, the funds remaining undisposed of should be handed over to the Trustees of the Perth School, for the benefit of that establishment; but it is with much concern we have learned, that in the teeth of such understanding, the num...

THE MARCH OF COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 24 May 1834

THE MARCH OF COLONIZATION. Mr. Paulding, the most celebiated and popular American writer oí the present age, gives the following humourous nccount in his last new novel published at New York, entited " Westuaid Hoi* of the inroads of hi-^ countrymen in the march of improvement in a little village of French emigrants in Louisiana: "There was a little church, the- bell of which seemt d never quiet, and the onl\ busy man in the village was the bell-ringer.

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Perth, May 27, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 May 1834

MAGISTRATE S COURT, Perth, May 27, 1834. Before the Hon. W. H. MACKIE, ESQUIRE, Justice of the Peace. Peter Ambrose, of Perth, carpenter, appeared to answer the complaint of William Frazer, shop- man to Mr Janies Solomon, of Perth. It appeared from the evidence of Frazer, that Ambrose went into Mr. Solomon's shop on Saturday night last and asked to be shown some rat-tail files ; when four were placed befóte him. Another customer coming in, the shopman went to another part of the counter ; but on his return, missed three of the filers. Being loth to suppose that Ambrose could have been guilty of taking and concealing the files, he (Frazer) turned over all the things on the counter, and looked on the floor, but could not find any of the missing articles. Ambrose »jon after this went out, when Charles Bourne, who appeared very much annoy- ed at the search which had been made, and the suspicion which attached to all who were in the : shop at the time, said, that he had seen Ambrose put ...

VINE CUTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 May 1834

VINE CÜTTJNG& THE, cuttings taken from the vine stocks, we have found it advisable, in accordance with the practice at the Cape of Good Hope, and other colonies, not to plant out immediately, but to bury them in bundles, free from exposure to any moisture, until the end of'August ; when they may be taken up'and planted in moist weather. Some persons may be advocates for planting im- mediately, but we are disposed to think (and our opinion is derived from experience) that those wlio adopt such a plan will have occasion to repent them ol' their own error. Let those who are scepti- cal try both plans The ,best cuttings for vines* are those which have a knot of the old wood, and four or five buds of the new, which permit the' leaving of two buds abuve ground. We strongly recommend our brother Colonists to direct their attention to the growth of the Vine ; we have now cuttings in abundance, which, by even ordinary care, in a twelvemonth, will adorn our garden walk«? and cottages,...
