To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette* Si a,- In your last week's paper an advertise- ment appeared, regarding the sale of certain pro- perties under 'an execution, Clark versus Lamb. I have had no aommunication with Mr. Lamb on the subject, but injustice to that gentleman I hope you will insert this letter in your next Gazette, as the public in general, and Mr. Lamb'« correspondents abroad, may be induced to l:eliev« that he had a personal interest in the matter, when he has none whatever. The propertie* seizad under execution of the Civil Court belong to Mr. Wm Thomas Stocker, of Hobart-town* Van Die men's Land, for whom Mr. Lamb is agent. I am, feir, Your most obedient Servant, Wa?.

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 June 1834
To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette." SIR,-It will not be disputed that amongst the earlier class of settlers, forming at the present time by far the larger number of inhabitants of this Colony, I mean those who arrived within the first twelve or eighteen months after its establish- ment, great delusions prevailed regarding the character of the country chosen for their future homes. The proximate causes of this delusion were-the description given of it by the botanist Fraser during his transient visit in the year 1827 ; Similar in its disappointments, and probably also in its ultimate results to that description of Botany J3ay given by the botanists of Capt. Cook's expe- dition anterior to the establishment of that pro- spering Colony, now advancing with astounding strides towards power and influence ; the eagerness displayed by certain great speculators in' England for obtaining large grants of land here ; the inte- resting puffings of ship owners and agents, regard- less of any r...
REVENUE OF NFW SOUTH WALE [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 June 1834
REVENUE OF NFW SOUTH WALE THE minute of Governor Bourke to the lative Council at Sydney, explanatory o^ ' tral heads of expenditure and of ways and means ás estimated for the year 1833, has appeared in the Sydney Gazette. It is very explicit. A . change in the mode of disposing of Crown lands had so far reduced the correspondence about them that two clerks were dispensed with-a small re- duction was also effected in the Survey Depart- ment, although it must long be a heavy expense to the Colony^ owing especially to the great and immédiate labour of surveying the Crown lands as the sales were effected. The minute discloses also the important fact to us that the great and munificient sums devoted to the construction and repair of roads and bridges had been defrayed by the British treasury, and although the expense of tools and superintendence of workmen is now di- rected to be borne by the expense of the Colony, the stupendous works in roads lhat had all alcfng before been constructed...
GENERAL ANECDOTES OF THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 June 1834
GENERAL ANECDOTES OF THE HORSE. DURING the destructive war, which, for a space of thirty years, desolated all Germany, till it was terminated by the peace of Westphalia, the car- riers, who conducted the inland traffic of the country, used to unite themselves into large com- panies, for their mutual defence, in order that they might travel with greater security against the numerous marauding parties which infested every part of the empire. One of these carriers had a horse which was of an extremely vicious disposi- tion, and greatly addicted to biting and kicking, from which even his master was not always secure, and which often embroiled him with his fellow travellers. They were one evening attacked in a ravine by three hungry wolves, which, after a long contest, they found they should hardly be able to compel to quit them, without allowing them some prey. It was therefore agreed among themselves that they should pay the owner of the vicious horse the price of that animal, and make...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 1834 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 June 1834
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. &nbsp; SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 1834 BY the Jolly Rambler, we have no &nbsp; intelligence of importance either from King George's Sound or Augusta. She has made an unusually long passage (upwards of 14 days) from the latter port — a circumstance by no means sur- prising at this season of the year. A person of the name of Ludlow walked up irom Augusta in 7 days, keeping within sight of the sea coast, and arrived at Fremantle on Monday last. We have not been able to ascertain the particulars &nbsp; of his journey, but, as far as we can learn, he confirms the favourable ac- &nbsp; counts we have received of the country in the neighbourhood of Henty' Plains, the Blackwood, and the Vasse. The only letters he took charge of, we be- lieve, were addressed to the Honorable J. S. Roe, Esq., Surveyor-General, which have been safely delivered. " COLONUS," as we anticipated, is &nbsp; &nbsp; combating the shadows of his ow...

FREMANTLE QUARTER SESSIONS. Tuesday, Jnly 1st, 1834. BEFORE the Hon. W. H. Mackie, Esq., Chair- man, the Rev. J. ii. Wittenoom, G. Leake, and R. Mc Bride Brown, Esquirea, J. s P. Ambrose, stood charged with stealing three rat-tail files fr«m Mr. Solomon's shop at Perth. It was, fully proved by the evidence of Fraser, the shopman, and Charles Bourne, a person who was in the shop at the time, that Ambrose took the files off the counter. The prisoner did not deny having taking the files, but stated in his de- fence, that he had a running account at Mr. So- lomon's, and took them in a joke, considering that when it was found out he had them, they would be charged to him. J. R. Lacy and George Smith were called by the prisoner to prove that he was in liquor that evening ; and Lacy deposed to his frequently re- peating such practical jokes, when under the, ex- citement of liquor. Lawrence Welch, who had been in the habit of seeing Ambrose at Mr. Solo- mon's shop, and1 was present on the e...
SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 July 1834
SYDNEY NEWS. WE learn that 6,000 barrels of flour, may be shortly expected to arrive from the United States . of America, and cargoes of wheat from other quarters may also be Loked for. The price to j which this article has risen, viz., 10s per bushel, will induce our Southern neighbours to scrape a few thousand bushels together for our use, altho* | it is known that their own supply is scanty. Our [ settlers must be wise in time however, and bear i in mind that without foreign importation or great j economy there will not be sufficient wheat in the Colony to last till the 1st October. -Australian, April 28. A PERIOD of 25 weeks has elapsed since the date of our last intelligence from Europe, and it is much to be feared that the cause will prove to be a long-continuance of south-westerly gales in the channel, dining the months of November and De- cember last. Should this be the case, we must expect to hear til« usual calamitous account of »hipwrecks on the coast» of Great Britain an...
