GOVERNMENT NOTICE. COLONIAL SECRETARY'S OFFICE PERTH FEBRUARY 18th, 1833 THE NATIVES. THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT having made arrangments, through the Superin- tendent of Native Tribes, for bringing &nbsp; about a friendly understanding with the natives, and supplying them with pre- sents, (bread and rice) at Monger's Lake : the inhabitants of Perth are here- by cautioned from encouraging their coming into the Town, or giving them food, &c.; as such kindness will in a great measure retard, if not wholly frustrate, the objects contemplated. &nbsp; &nbsp; PETER BROWN, Colonial Secretary. &nbsp;
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 February 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. The adoption in this Colony of the system of disposing of land by public ! Sale, is, we have no hesitation in pro ¡ îiouncing a wise and salutary measure, as it will tend to check the dispersion of our Settlers over a wide extent of coun- try, and by a division of labour will render their exertions mutually beneiicial. At the Cape it will be perceived by the ioiluwiag extracts the introduction of the s\stem is hailed with great satisfaction, we may congratulate ourselves thereibre theil at this early period it lias been ap- plied to this ¡Settlement. it is now certain that Government will discon- tinue the practice of giving away Farms. I j ad this measure been resolvevl upon a$ th& formtKro /of this Settlemep.t, vc àai/uid iwve found this pait of the Colony in a different attitude from what it now assumes. instead of Land being first laviohed up- on men under fake pretences, who were only known by their impudence" and importunities, ana whose...
THE NATIVE FIRES [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 February 1833
THE NATIVE FUIES The fires kindled by the Natives, in different parts of the country, have spread with alarming rapidity, aud pre- sented a grand and interesting spectacle. The Country, on the banks of Melville water, on Sunday last, from, Mr. A. Butlers,to point Walter, was one continu- ed blaze, and was as splendid a scene, as could well be imagined. The extent of &nbsp; this fire gave rise to a report, that both Mr. Butlers premises, and those at the &nbsp; point, were destroyed ; but it is perfectly unfound- ed. The windows of the latter place were broken, it is supposed by the Natives, no further injury however has been sustained. We are persuaded the origin of these fires is not at all to be attributed, &nbsp; to any malicious intent on the part of the natives ; they resort to their accustomed practice of lighting a fire in the bush, for the purpose of cooking, and from the bush being highly inflamable at this sea- son, it extends with resistless violen...

THE NATIVES. PUBLIC NOTICE. AS Resident of this Town, it is pro- bable that the Inhabitants generally may consider myself, and the Superintendents of Native Tribes, acting in conjunction with the Military Officers in Command, responsible in some degree, for the safety and protection of themselves and their properties. Í therefore consider it to be my duty, to call their attention to the Government Notice, dated Feb. 18th, 1833, signed by the Honorable the Co- lonial Secretary.-It is moreover desira- ble, to impress upon the inhabitants, the very great necessity there is, tor each individual very rigidly attending to, the cautions therein given, as every reason- able person must see the utter impracti- cability of carrying any plan into ef- fect for the public good- if it be counter- acted by, those, who ought willingly, and cheerfully, to assist in this, and every such measure. It is particularly neces- sary to caution those persons who are in the habit of giving the natives money-n...

(From the Sydney Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 March 1833
(From, the Sydney Herald.) There are few situations more entitled to gene- ral sympathy and to the beneficent patronage and aid of an enlightened public, than that of the British emigrant, landing for the first time on these shores, attended by a wife and family, without money and friends, in quest of a profitable mode of employ- ing-»his labour for their benefit, and disappointed in lus endavours. Home with all its endearing realities of liberty, has been abandoned for ever* The cords of friendly intercourse have been disse- vered, The stream of patronage flowing in the various channels of private' and public benefit, for one's advantage, has been diverted from its course The handicraft of the workman, which secured competence in the Mother Country, is here " un- known, or uncalled for ; and the emigrant sets out afresh, as in the begining of life, his frail bar-, que ill provided for the boisterous gales of adver- j sity. in a foreign land, and surrounded witb. strang- ers in simi...
To the Editor, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 March 1833
To the Editor, &nbsp; Sir, I know not to whom His Majesty is indebted for the very able manner in which one or more of His Officers in Western Australia, have drawn up a specification for the bank across the Islands or Flats ; but when they propose clay puddling on the deep mud, there existing, I can tell them they might as well at once throw their money into the said mud as expend it so useless- ly. The Government I see propose only to do &nbsp; 100 rods—but unless the thing is properly and liberally done it had better not be attempted ; this &nbsp; dribling of the Public money is far from being eco- nomical. The British Government is through our means making a valuable property in this Colony, and why should it not pay a fair price for it, by constructing public works for our accommodation. This leads me to observe, that I by no means agree with your remarks last week respecting the sale of land by the Crown—for, as to condensing the population, it would be...
THE SOLDIER SPEARED AT CLARENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 March 1833
---------------- The Soldier Speared at Clarence. Last week we had only room to notice that Jenkins a Private of the 63d. who was speared by the Natives at Clarence, was recovering ; we are happy to add, that he is expected before long to be in a state of convalescence. The particu- lars of the savage attack, are as follows ; A party on their way to the Murray had casually put in at Clarence, where Jen- kins was stationed, and requested him to let them have some water. He went to the well, for the purpose of procuring it, where he had to descend a small lad- der ; he had scarcely reached the bottom, when he heard a noise as he described it like the tramping of cavalry, at a short distance from him, and immediately after wards received two spears in his back and shoulder ; he mounted the ladder again with difficulty, and when at the top several more spears were hurled at him, two of which lodged in his side and arm. Thinking it is persuaded, that they had effected their diabolical pu...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 March 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL The Natives are still in and near Perth encouraged to remain, we presume, by the distribution of rations, which are daily served out to them some distance from the town. We regret this encouragement has &nbsp; been given them, as it is an inducement for them to neglect their accustomed haunts, and leads to a greater intimacy than it appears to us advisable to cultivate; we reserve however any remarks, we may have to make, upon this point, until we are better informed as to the object pro- posed to be attained by it. A better oppor- tunity for accomplishing any projected scheme, could not possibly present itself, we anticipate therefore in a short time we shall be enabled to report favourably of the progress made by the Superintendent of Native Tribes, and his assistant, in the knowledge of the native language, as well as in establishing a friendly intercourse. We consider it of the first importance, that the public should retrain from giving th...
To the Editor of the Gazette [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 March 1833
To the Editor of the Gazette Sir, Having occasion to be in Perth a few day's on business, and influenced by that feeling, which has ever prompted me to take an interest in the welfare of the Natives, I wished to employ as many leisurely mornings as I had to spare, in going out to Monger s lake to see the bread distributed and to embrace the opportunity of conversing with them. With this view, I called on Captain Ellis last Saturday morning, and stated my intention of accompanying him; but to my surprize he forbade me to do so. From Captain Elliss rank, it is difficult to suppose he would have thus acted with- out special orders. I am therefore induced to ask &nbsp; what does the local Government mean? Does it intend to keep the natives as a game preserve, to be fed and shot at pleasure? Far be it from me to suppose that it has any such intention; the charac- ters of those who compose it, forbid me to enter- &nbsp; tain such a thought for one moment : but until we h...

To the Editor of the Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
To the Editor of the Gazette. Sil, The importance of Agriculture, and Horticulture to man, has been acknowledged, in all ages of the world; but it is only the first Sett- lers in the wilderness, who become fully aware, by experience, of all the advantages they derive from these useful arts. From being necessarily left for some time, without the fruits of the Earth they become better able to appreciate the labours of those friends of tke human race who first brought into cultivation the Wheat, the Vine, the Olive, the Fig, the Apple, the Pear, the Potatoe, and a variety of other useful Grains and Plants. With the exception of Sir Walter Raleigh, who is known to have introduced the Potatoe into England, and who met with a very ungrateful return, for that, and other services he rendered his country, their names, and the days in which they lived are long since forgotten. The establishment of a public Journal in the infant state of this colony gives us an opportunity of recording the pro...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL Owing to a sudden attack of illness, we have been prevented from lending sufficient assistance this week in the operative part of this Journal, to insure its completion. We must therefore solicit the indulgence of our Readers, which the circumstances we trust, will not aollw us to plead for in vain. We refer our readers to the letter of " An earl}' Settler," which we anticipate will be perused with interest. The statements of the writer may be relied on. His general knowledge of these matters, to which he has devoted con- siderable attention, leaves no doubt, but that his list comprises all the established plants in the Colony ; should any how- ever have escaped him, we hope some of our correspondents will supply the dem ciency.
AGRICULTURAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
AGRICULTURAL MEETING. -0000 At a meeting of the Agricultural Society held at Guildford, on the first Instant, Mr. Whitfield, in the Chair. It was resolved, that a communication be made (through the Secretary,) to the local Government stating it to be the opinion of the Society, that the cultivation of Wheat in the colony tliis year would be greatly increased, by the Government guaranteeing to the Settlers a certain remunerating price for his surplus Wheat, otherwise the quan- tity of wheat cuitivated for the ensuing harvest, would be smaller than the last, and we should a gain have to depend in a great measure on a sup- ply from the neighbouring colonies ; 15 shillings per bushel was, by many gentlemen present, con- sidered to be a fair remunerating price, and not more than the average price of wheat since the first establishment of the colony. Two new members Mr. W. K. Shenton, and Mr. C. Boyd, were ballotted for and duly elect- ed, and it was resolved, that for the future the Secr...
SALE OF STOCK AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
SALE OF STOCK AT PERTH. On Wednesday last, pursuant to advertisement a sale of Stock took place at Mr. Wells' Stock yard Perth, which although not numerously, was respectably attended. It was remarked that they were disposed of at a sacrifice ; we should venture to differ from the opinion of those gentlemen, we however quote the prices, leaving those who are better acquainted with these matters to draw their own conclusions; all we would remark, is, if these are not remunerating prices the sooner our foreign neighbours are apprized of the circumstance the better. A cow, £24. A cow and calf £34. A Steer £21. ditto £15. A Mare in bad condition £29. Mare and foal £24* Horse (Henry) £30. The horses were told at low prices, but when it is taken into consideration that they were not working horses, animals most in demand here at present, some allowance may be made for the pau- city of bidders.
VISIT OFHIS HONOR THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR TO THE OUTPORTS [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
Visit of His Honor the Lieuten- ant Governor to the Outports A gentleman, who accompanied His &nbsp; &nbsp; Honor in this interesting trip, has oblig- &nbsp; ingly forwarded us with the following particulars. On Monday, the 4th instant, the &nbsp; Lieutenant Governor arrived at Freman tie in the Ellen Schooner, having been occupied for the period of three weeks on a tour of inspection of the outports of &nbsp; King George's Sound and Augusta. His Honor was highly gratified with his ex- cursion, and pleased with the progress of this part of the Colony. Several Gar- dens at the former settlement were in a high state of cultivation, and some peach trees were seen loaded with fruit. "The farm," cultivated by Mr. Morley had yielded a good harvest of wheat. - The settlers were contented and happy, and on the most ameable footing with the natives, many of whom were employed in carrying wood and water, and per- forming other services for which they we...
