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

THE ARMY. THE London Journals state that a ' Captain Roche Meade is to succeed to an expected vacant majoriet/ in the 21st Fusiliers. We apprehend there is some mistake in this. The two Majors, Fareweather and Deare, are neither of them likely to moye. * The 50th regiment, being under orders for New South Wales, the 92d Highlanders is the next corps for Foreign service, having returned from Jamaica in May, 1827. The 64th, 76lh, and 70th regiments follow the Highlanders. The question as to using the percussion locks in the French army is on the point of being decided. Amongst the various triais which have been made, we must refer to those which have been reported in the Spectateur Militaire, from a statement of Captain Hamburg, of the Hanoverian anny, where every thing tending to the improvement of the art of war always met with great consideration. At first each infantry regiment received forty percus- sion muskets, with instructions to ascertain by ex- periment whether such guns ch...

To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 May 1834

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." MR. EDITOR,-It appears from No. of your Gazette, that the Locaf Government think 1s. 6d. per lb. too much for fresh meat, and in consequence   of that price being tendered, they have determined to supply the troops with salt meat. If the Local Government would be at the trouble of taking into consideration certain circumstances connected with   the holding and rearing of stock in this Colony,   perhaps they might be induced to alter their views,   and allow the industrious and enterprising settler   a remunerating price for this precious article of consumption ; — I say precious, for it is a fact well known to the Local Government, that most hold- ers of stock have been great sufferers on account of the various misunderstandings which have ex- isted between the Natives and the Colonists — misunderstandings over which the proprietors of stock have had no control, and also from other...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 May 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1834. THE Government, we understand, delayed the issuing the Proclamation which appears in our present number, cautioning the public against harbouring the Native named Weeip, and sanction-   ing his apprehension, in the hope that   after a short period had elapsed, the Natives would return to their old haunts, and thus afford an easy means of secur- ing him, without involviug the Colony in a war of extermination. As these ex- pectations have not been realized, it has been considered expedient to publish the Proclamation we allude to, offering a reward of twenty pounds to any person who shall deliver Weeip to the nearest Justice of the Peace ; but let it be dis- tinctly observed, that if he should be killed in the bush, we should presume the reward will alone be given on satis- factory proof being adduced, that he met his death whilst " attempting to secure him." The mistakes likely to occur in the bush — wh...

NEW HOLLAND. Extracts from Sturt's Expeditions in Southern Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 June 1834

NEW HOLLAND. Extracts from Sturts Expeditions in Southern Australia. ON the subject of emigration it ¡s not my in- tention to dweil at any length. Still, however, it may be useful to offer a few general observations on a topic which has, of late years, become so interesting to the British public. The main consideration with those who, pos- sessing some capital, propose to emigrate as the means of improving their condition, is, the society likely to be found in the land fixed on for their future residence. One of the first questions I have been atked, when conversing on the subject of emigration, has consequently related to this im- portant matter 1 had only then to observe in reply, that the civil aud military establishments in -New South Wales, form the elements of as good society as it is the lot of the majority to command in Great Britain. The houses of the settlers are not scattered over a greater surface than the residences of country gentlemen here, and if they cannot vie with...

To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette.' SIR,-The Challenger buoy in the entrance to Cockburn Sound having broken adrift from ita moorings during the late gales, and the Stags* and Mid beacons being now the only remaining marks afloat by which ships can be guided into the Sound, it may be of use to point out how Naviga- tors may conduct their vessels into that anchorage with safety by these beacons alone, should un- avoidable circumstances prevent the others being replaced. Having approached within a mile and a half of Garden Island, with the Haycock bealing N.E.JN (magnetic), as pointed out by the directions given in the printed chart, a ship may steer to the northward until the jail at Fremantle, or the flag- staff near it, is seen opening round the Shag-rock,, situate near the north end of Camac Island. She will then be in IO to 12 fathoms water, about, hree-quaiters of a mile west from the Challenger j rock, and with the N.B. point of Garden islands bearing about SEb.E.JE. (magnet...

CENTRAL AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 June 1834

CENTRAL AFRICA. WE learn from a 4 Prospectus-' laid before the jmblic, that Dr. Smith proposes to direct in per- son a Scientific Expedition into Central Africa, with the view of-*. elucidating the (Geography of these Regions, the nature of their productions, and the advantages they may offer to Commercial enterprise." The sum required to fit out the ex pedition is to be raised in shares of three pounds each, and the " collections " will bu the property of the shareholders. it appears that two traders, named Hume and Muller, advanced to a point last year which they guessed to be near or within the tropic. Dr. "Smith's intention, we understand, is to penetrate if possible as far as the Equator, Since the discovery of the mouth of the Niger, "a shorter route than any hitherto known has been open to enterprising explorers, into the dark in- terior of the African Continent. But the route Northward, from the frontiers of the Colony, is in many respects preferable Here the traveller start...

A LETTER ON COLONIAL LABOUR, BY THOMAS BANNISTER, LATE CAPTAIN 25TH FOOT. Hobart Town, July 8, 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 June 1834

A LETTER ON COLONIAL LABQUR, BY THOMAS BANNISTER, LATE CAVTAI.V 2ÖTH FOOT. Hobart Town, July 8, 1833. MY LORD, -Permit me again to draw your Lordships attention to a subject, which I submit- ted for your consideration last /ear, viz : to the system of Colonial Labour, and in doing this, I will, with your Lordships permission, venture a little further, to lay before your Lordship some opinions on the policy of the sale of Land in the Colonies. * In my letter of the 18th of March, 1832, I asserted that the Indentured system was defective : my subsequent experience confirms me in this opinion ; the plan I then urged, and now also do on your Lordships consideration, is very simple, though apparently from its novelty, impractica- ble. 2-My idea was, and I still entertain it, that a Colony can be established partly on the Convict, partly on the indentured, a id partly on the Free principle ; I am aware that every system has its defects, but my conviction that Western Au- stralia only requ...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 June 1834

VARIETIES. WHY DO PEOPLE HATE THEIR SER-I VANTS TO DRESS FINE ?-Nothing so surely ev cites the wrath of a mistress of a "regular family,' as tlie detection of a cap of rich materials on the head of a servant ; and if a few ringlets *»re ob- served to be making their way from under the lace, the latter days of the world are surely pt hand ; the measure of the people's iniquity is filled ; and, in short, " there aie no good servants now a-day." Beauty is itself a decided objection in female servants : tradesmen who procure the domestics of " respectable" people'are always for- bidden to send a beauty for approbation. " Ma'am, she is too good looking for you." " The wretch," exclaims the lady in her heart, " No, no, Mr. So-and-so. I have had enough <ti your beauties in my house. I want respectable looking women," that ia to say, frights. " Adornment is almost as bad as beauty ; she is always thinking of the men, the creature. ' She is not of the only class of women whose tho...

To the Editor of the " Perth Gätetter SIR,-I am informed that the expense of taking out a summons in the Civil Court has been raised from 4s. (id. to ! 4.9. 6d. A matter of such im- portance to the public ought to have been published in your Gazette by the Registrar Clerk. May I ask the reason why this great change in the Court proceedings is not officially made known to those ivho have to pay the tax ? SENEX. May 26. *#* " Senex " has been misinformed. The sum required to be paid to the Registrar Clerk depends upon the costs of the suit ; he is authorized to demand such a deposit as will secure the pay- ment of his fees. This arrangement has | been made by the Commissioner of the j Court, and appears a just and equitable ] determination, áud not a tax or ímposi-i tion, as " Senex " would imply.

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1384 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 June 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1384 WE HAVE no particular news by the Government Schooner Ellen from King George's Sound, as it was not antici- pated that Capt. Toby would have occa- sion to run in here. The Jolly Rambler was there, and intended sailing for this1 poil a few days after the Ellen, which i the storm the latter vessel encountered | ' has most probably retarded. We may therefore look for more full and direct j < information by the Rambler, and we trust, in confirmation of the hopes of the Colony at large, she will convey to us the long looked-for intelligence of Sir James Stirling's arrival at the Sound. THE scarcity of employment at the present time, for labourers at Perth, has been the "occasion of several applications being made to the Government for relief, which has been extended to the appli- cants in the following manner :-They are set to work on the roads, for which labour they receive daily 2lbs. of meal, 1lb. of beef, and one shill...

FOSSIL REMAINS OF THE ELEPHANT IN NEW HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 June 1834

FOSSIL REMAINS OF THE ELEPHANT IN NEW HOLLAND. IN a pamphlet published last year at Sydney, New South Wales, by the Rev. J. D. Lang, de- tailing the steps which had been taken tor the establishment of an Academical Institution, or College, in that Colony, we find the following statement : "A collection of fossil bones which had been discovered in a lime stone cave at Wellington Valley, by George Rankeen, Esq., of Bathurst, and to the discovery of which the writer had the honor of calling the attention of the Colonial   public in an anonymous letter published in the   ' Sydney Gazette' about eighteen months ago, was entrusted to- the writer by Mr. Rankeen for Professor Jameson, of the University of Edin- burgh. One of the bones had evidently belonged to some large animal, and Professor Jameson and an eminent naturalist of the College of Sur- geons in London, to whom it had afterwards been coincided in regarding it as a bone of the Hippo- potamus.

THE ORNITHORYNCHUS.

Through the kindness of his friend Lieutenant the Hon. Lauderdale Maule of the 39th Regt., Dr Weatherhead has had the bodies of several ornithorynchi transmitted to him from New Holland, in one of which the ova are pre- sented, establishing, along with other curious circumstances ascertained...
