THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 14, 1384 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 June 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 14, 1384 " AN OLD SETTLER " in his commu- nication, which will be found under the head of" Correspondence," in advocating the cause of the labourer,, strikes at an evil-the payment of wages in stores which has been long growing upon us, and has at length settled down into a : system to the entire exclusion of cash j payments. The evil is great, but in many eases unavoidable, and we fear¡ without a remedy ; indeed we cannot see | the propriety of calling upon the Govern ment to interfere m matters oí private bargain between the labourer and the master. If employment was more abun- dant than it chances to be at this present season of the year the evil would correct itself: the labourer, of course, would seek the employer who would advance him the most liberal terms ; we cannot see, therefore, the justice of insisting that a contractor for erecting public works I should be compelled to adopt any par- ticular mode of payment. The labourer, ...

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 June 1834

To the Editor of the " Perth Gaseite." MR. EDITOR, Allow me, Sir, to claim your attention on a subject of great importance to the Inhabitants of this Colony, but more especially to the working classes-and 1 trust you will, upon deliberation, advocate the removal of the complaint which I have to make. It is the obligation which the whole of the working classes now labour under of being compelled to take from their employers the amount of their week'* wages in goods, &c. ; as it is almost impossible that any master can have every article which is necessary for the support und camfor of man, he must go with a shortened allowance, or draw an extra quantity of such goods as he can get, and exchange (at a terrible discount) with some one else for the necessaries re- quired. This, Mr. Editor, is in itself quite cause enough to produce discontent arnon p st the most useful members of society ; but the complaint does j not end here It must drive out of the Colony all the best mechani...

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazelle." MR. EDITOR,-I am not ©f opinion that all the data on which are founded the very sensible and useful remarks contained in the letter of your cor- respondent TWH, aro incontrovertible. The subject matter ofthat letter is, notwithstanding, of such vital importance to the existence and future condition of this Colony, that I shall offer no apology in pur- suing the writer's observations to some other points,connected with it, following his example in restricting them to "the agricultural and pastoral classes, as of infinitely the greater moment. We have already passed the fifth anniversary of the establishment of the Colony,1 and three or four years have elapsed since the majority of the number of our agricultural settlers have selected and com menced cultivating their grants: let us for a moment pause, and consider what results have yet been attained, what we have done for ourselves, what inducements we can point*out for others to j follow the foot...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 June 1834

VARIETIES. WASHING SALADS AND VEGETA- BLES.-"The idea having been suggested," says a. coi respondent of the Gardener's Magazine, ** to my master, by Mr. Brown, of Dalkeith, of having a tub of salt water from the sea', and steeping them a few minutes in that; we immediately adopted his advice, and succeeded perfectly m detaching every thing of the animal kind from leaves. My mistress was so much pleated with the thing, that she has since had every kind of salad washed in this way, especial iy such as grow close on the ground, and are apt to have worms and slugs gathered with them. We have even had small red worms come out of cabbages and lettuce, besides green flies and caterpillars. Alter the vegetables remain three or four minutes in the salt-water cistern, whatsoever has been in them comes out, and is seen writhing and dying in the water, just as worms come out of the ground and die on the surface, after a watering of lime water. 'Hie vegetables are then taken out, and washed with...

CIVIL COURT. Perth, Tuesday, June 10, 1834.   Before G. F. MOORE, ESQUIRE, Commissioner. Bellamy v. Gibbs. -This was an action to reco~ ver £32. 7s. I ld. for freight and expenses on sundry goods, the property of the defendant, ship- ped in London on board the Quebec Trader, and landed at Fremantle. MR. BUTLER, on behalf of the defendant, re- quired security for the payment of costs, if the case should be decided against the plaintiff. CAPT. HENDERSON (the agent for the plaintiff) said, he was prepared to become security for the payment of the costs, provided the Court required it, otherwise certainly not. COMMISSIONER-I must confess it is desirable that parties appearing in this Court, representing persons who have left the Colony, should be made liable for all the expenses which may be justly charged against them, otherwise a person who in- dulged a bad feeling against another might instruct an agent to annoy and harass his opponent by vexatious proceedings, and when ...

MAGISTRATES COURT—PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 June 1834

MAGISTRATES COURT-PERTH. Pee Buckus, a Lascar, was charged with enter ing a house at Bull's Creek belonging to Mr. Thomas Middleton, and stealing therefrom some   beef, rice, two pair of cordoroy trowsers, and a   fustian jacket. Mr. Middletons sons, who reside at the house, left it on Sunday last, and came to   Perth to spend the day with their friends ; on their   return on Monday morning they found that two of the window shutters had been opened, one forcibly. On searching the house, the articles enumerated above were missing. William House deposed, that he saw a smoke   in the house, and knowing the Middletons had left it, he sent over to see who was there, and was told that it was a Lascar, who had got per- mission to go in. Doubting the fact, he went over on the Monday morning, and found the prisoner in Mr. Middletons bed, and took him into custody until Mr. M.'s arrival, who immediately recognised the jacket and...

TVe shouW, reluctant- ly offend " a Subscriber" but if he has a friend who can advise him, and will submit the four following lines . (which form a portion of his poetic vision) to the test of his opinion, we consider we shall be held scathlessfor refusing to open a corner for original poetry, with such silly trash. Bv/i mark the poet's modesty "I dieamt à dream in the midst of my slum bera, " "And as Ifast as I dreamed it came into num- bers ; "My thoughts ran along in such beautiful metre .'

MAN ADAPTED TO LIVE IN ALL CLIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 June 1834

MAN ADAPTED TO LIVE IN ALL CLIMATES. MAN has this superiority over all other animals, that he can inhabit every different region of She globe, however extreme the temperature. He is found under the scorching sun and amid the arid plains of Africa, as well as in the frost-bound regions of Spitzbergen" : and he is found to live And thrive under these different extremes, not only after a gradual naturalization of ages, but can even move from one country to another, and undergo a vicissitude of climate with comparative impunity. Thus we see, even from our own country, emigrants going forth, and naturalizing themselves amid the cold regions of the north, onward to the very verg of the equator. The Esquimaux and the Canadian savage will prosecuie their usual employments of the chase in a temperature where mercury freezes into a solid mass, and where'even brandy congeals to ice in apartments containing fires ; while the African negro, again, feels quite at his ease in a burning climate, wh...

THE SILK-WORM, OR BOMBYX. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 June 1834

THE SILK-WORM, OR BOMBYX. WE have already noticed that the discovery of the valuable properties of this little animnl belongs to China. It is a species of caterpillar, and un- dergoes a variety ofv changes during the short peiiod of its life, assuming, in each of the succes- sive transformations, a form wholly dissimilar from that with which it was previously invested. It ia produced from eggs, laid in summer by a greyish kind of moth These eggs are about the size of a grain of mustard seed ; their colour, when first laid, being yellow, b:>t afterwards becoming of a bluish hue. In temperate climes, and with proper precautions, these eggs may be preserved a long time without hatching or rotting. fihe three suc- cessive states being of thevsilk-worm are those of the caterpillar, the chrysalis or aurelia, and the moth ; and in addition to these, it undergoes five other distinct modifications of being When first hatched, it is a small black worm, about a quarter of an inch in length....

POTASHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 June 1834

POTASHES. Settlers in the woods have an excellent oppor- tunity of manufacturing potashea-an article of great ma and considerable value. A vast quanti- ty of this substance is annually made in Canada, and exported to Great Britain. Potashes are made from the ashes of burnt trees. In burning timber to clear the land, the ashes are carefully pre- served, and put in barrds, or athel! voxels with holes in the bottom ; and water being poured over them, a liquid, or alkali is tun off ; this ley being boiled in large boilers, the watery particles eva- porate, and leave what is called black salts, a sort of residuum, which, when heated to a high degree, becomes fused, and, finally, when cool, assumes the character of potash. By these potashes the Canadians make their own soap : the ley of a barrel of ashes, boiled along with den pounds of tallow, till it is of a proper consistence, produces about 40 pounds of very good soap. It is stated, that when the land has been covered with heavy timbe...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 21, 1834 WE HAVE inserted this week a slight sketch of Hie method of cultivating the silk-worm, and we cannot too strongly urge the attention of the Colonists at large io the growth of the mulberry tree : cuttings may now be obtained at a moderate charge, and if we neglect the time for transplanting, another year will pass over our heads without that advance- ment which our soil and climate especial- ly favour. Day after day we hear re pinings, that such-and-such things are not ; how soon may these murmurings be set at rest, by application and atten- tion to the .selection of such periods as are best adapted for planting and sow- ing.
