SUPPOSED WRECK TO THE NORTHWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 July 1834

SUPPOSED WRECK TO THE NORTH- WARD. A FURTHER description of the position in which the wreck is placed, has been given to Parker, of Guildford, by the Native Moiley-Dobbin ; he says it is lying at the mouth of a river which runs where the mountain range trends to the eastward, and leaves an open plain. To make this intelligi- ble to Parker, he supposed the Swan at Guildford to be the open sea, the Helena the river, Captain Picking's house the spot where the tents are pitched, and somewhere about Dodds the wreck, which is lying in shoal-water. Mr. Bland, who has been some distance in that direction, confirms this description of the country. The utmost ex- tent, supposing this report to be true, weuld be abont 100 miles. The Monkey (taken up by the Government) sailed for Shark's Bay, with a party under Mr. Ommanney's directions, on Thursday last. — W e hear Mr. Henty purposes dispatching the Fanny to-morrow to examine the coast. The following is the continuation of G.F.Moore, &...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 July 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1834. WE HAVE at length the gratifying office of announcing the arrival of His Excellency Sir James Stirling (our Governor), with his amiable lady and family, on the 19th ultimo, at King George's Sound, and from the information convey- ed to us by the Fanny, we may hourly look for his arrival at head quarters. The intelligence we receive respecting the pro- posed measures of the Home Government, are very limited; but the whole must now soon be developed In the list of the Civil Department which has been transmitted byHis Excellency, we     perceive several appointments are done away with,   and the salaries of such as are retained are fixed at the lowest possible scale. The Colony will obtain a valuable accession in   numbers and pecuniary strength in the passengers by the James Pattison ; we hope they will be ad- vised instantly on their landing, to direct their attention to their...

JUVENILE EMIGRANTS. (From the "Hobart Town Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 July 1834

JUVENILE EMIGRANTS. (From the "Hobart Town Courier J THR following letter from Captain Brenton, the Chairman of this Society's Committee, to the Editor of the Morning Herald, caunot fail to in- terest the reader : "Sir,-As you have so kindly noticed in your paper of this day, the embarkation of the poor boys on board the Bolton, for Algoa Bay, you will add to the great obligations we are under to you, as a public writer, if you will insert a few observations connected with this subject. I am »unfriendly to adult emigration, as a remedy for what is termed 'supeiintenuent population,' but the removal, or, I might say. the transjjlaniing of young people to a more open and less occupied field, is as necessary in human society, as it is in the vegetable kingdom, and the effect is as béné- ficiai in the one case as in ths other. If Í can find children naked and hungry in a filthy cellar, or a dreary garret, where their labour will not procure them the common necessaries of life, and remov...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 July 1834

VARIETIES. SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY.-Mr. Rutter, of Lymington, already known as the author of a treatise on Gas Lighting, has obtained a patent for a new method of producing heat, which is cer- tainly one of the most useful discoveries of modern science. The principal ingrediment employed for fuel in this new process, is water-. The only ma terial required besides, is something in a hq- id form which contains a large portion of carbon ; whale oil, tar, or almost any thing of a similar kind will answer the same purpose. As these materials are introduced into the furnace simul- taneously and in combination with each other, the one yields its carbon, while the other gives out its hydrogen, and a small portion of atmospheric air, is the only thing then required to keep them in a j state of perfect combustion. The flame thus pro- duced is so completely under management, that in one second it can be reduced or augmented as oc- casion may require. It is almost unnecessary to add that it yields...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JULY 26, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 July 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL; SATURDAY, JULY 26, 1834. THE expected arrival of the James Pattison from King George's Sound, with His Excellency Sir James Stirling on board, has been delayed it is persum- ed, owing to the contined unfavourable state of the weather. Considerable anxi- ety is evinced to witness his re-establish- ment at head quarters, which we hope and expect it will be our province to an- nounce in our ensuing number. WE omitted to notice last week that we received, per Fanny from Launces- ton files of the Van Diemen's Land Journals up to the 24th May ; and the Sydney Herald and Australian to the end of April. We have made some few extracts, but the general information they convey is of a local nature, and has to us but little information or importance.   We acknowledge our obligations to the compiler, for an Editon of the New South Wales Calendar ; the style in which it is brought out is a mark of the encouragement given to these publica- tions, and in...

ANECDOTES AND REMARKS RELATIVE TO THE ABORIGINES AT KING GEORGE'S SOUND. (From an Original Manuscript by a Resident at King George's Sound.) [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 July 1834

ANECDOTES AND REMARKS RELATIVE TO THE ABORIGINES AT KING GEORGE'S SOUND. (From an Original Manuscript by a Resident at King George's Sound.)   [CONTINUED.] MOKKARE complained of indisposition, and was   taking some mercurial preparations under injunc- tions not to expose himself, when he walked off to the bush on the morning of the 22d of June — a day which for rain and wind was not surpassed during the whole winter. This departure without permission demanded, or intimation given, was unusual, and to me unaccountable ; and the only reason I could assign for it was their natural fond- ness of variety, and the inherent predilection of the savage life. Nakina followed in a few days, and neither returned until the end of July, when Mokkare was labouring under such organic dis- ease, and was so much reduced in flesh and strength, as to preclude all hope of recovery. He died on the 9th of August in a state of delirium. The previous night, he having complained tha...

MURDER PERPETRATED BY THE MURRAY RIVER NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 July 1834

MURDER PERPETRATED BY THE MURRAY RIVER NATIVES.     IT is again our painful duty to record an act of barbarity and treachery scarcely equelled, and cer- tainly not excelled, by any of the numerous out   rages by the Natives. We are indebted for the particulars to Lieut. Armstrong, of the 21st Fusi- liers, who was stationed at the Murray at the time, and whose servant fell a sacrifice to the brutal ferocity of the lawless savages. On Tuesday, the 15th inst., it appears Barron,   of Perth, (late serjeant major in the 63rd, who, on the departure of the regiment for India, obtain- ed his discharge and has settled amongst us), proceeded to the Murray River to effect some exchange with Thomas Peel, Esq., for a valuable mare ; but on his arrival it was intimated to him, to his infinite disappointment, that the mare had got loose and was in the bush. Reluctant to return without accomplishing the object of his journey, on the following morn...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 August 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 1834. The arrival of His Excellency Governor Sir James Stirling, is still protracted, leaving us in a state of anxi- ous expectation. The favourable appear- ance of the weather within the last day or two, has led us to anticipate, hourly, the gratification of hearing the sound of the welcome signal. On Wednesday last, a Meeting was convened by the inhabitants of Guildford, and the settlers on the Middle and Up- per Swan, to consider of the most ap- propriate method of addressing His Excellency on his arrival : when it was determined to elect a deputation to co- operate with others from the towns of Perth and Fremantle. As some diversi- ty of o pink n appears to exist as to the wording of the address, it seems more than probable that the inhabitants of each town will express their sentiments of congratulation in their own terms. A Meeting was held at Fremantle on Thursday-Geo. Leake, Esq., in the "chair, and an address from the inha...

MAMMON'S LEVEE. (From the " Examiner.) A psychological curiosity."-Coleridge. T'other day, as over my tea and toast, I sat perusing the Morning Post The dull details of the priestly bevy, That thronged the last St. James's Levee ; -, And, duller still, the mass of words Called " Church Reform" in the House of Lords ; And, dullest of all, the drowsy particles Of Ellenborough's leading articles I fell (t'was natural) fast asleep, In a sort of trance, bo odd, so deep, So form'd to make one's nerves to wince, That I've been in hysterics ever smee. I dreamed Lord Mammon, afraid the Church Should leave his Highness in the lurch, And warned betimes by the becoming storm, Renounce his Worship and follow Reform, Set out in a huff from the banks of Styx, And, reaching the House of Lords by "six Just as Wynford had cleared the room By a speech on the Local Courts of Brougham Summoned his Bishops, a ghostly bevy, To meet him there at a solemn Levee, For (so well the place with his humour accord...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 August 1834

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." Sir,-The letter addressed by Mr. O'Brien, of New South Wales, to the President of the Agri- cultural Society of this Colony, deserves, in my humble opinion, our best thanks, for although the opinions therein advanced have been already en- tertained by some and acted upon by others, still they afford conclusive evidence-if any were wanting-in favour of this Colony, as a country in every way saited to the breeding of fine woolled sheep. It is by such discussions and statements that the real value of the districts over the hills, can best be ascertained, and through the medium of your paper, developed to the world. I need not ask how much more valuable are such statements &c, than the exaggerated accounts of the nature and character of the lands on the banks of the Swan and Canning Rivers, which have -repeatedly appeared in print. As farcical is it to talk of the blindness of the sheep on this side of the hills, being occasi...

TERRIBLE EXAMPLE. (From the "Tasmanian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 August 1834

TERRIBLE EXAMPLE. (From the " Tasmanian.) On Wednesday morning the miserable Green- wood was freed from further suffering in this world. He was sent to his great account with his lacerat- ed back yet uncicatrized. It is generally reported that the respite we noticed in our last, was grant- ed, in order to allow his torn flesh to heal, so as that he might be able to mount the scaffold with- out agony of motion being apparent. Such, how- ever, is impossible to have been the fact. It could not be. There must have been some other cause for the bestowing to him the few additional hours, which that respite afforded. Yet it would have, perhaps, been better, that they had not been re- ceived-that what was to be done, had been done at once. The treatment of this man has been ter- rible-pos8sibly to strike terror. The execrable Machiavelian doctrine, " that all means are justi- fiable to obtain a desired purpose." may be, by some, considered to be applicable in this case. It is a shocking met...

ANECDOTES AND REMARKS RELATIVE TO THE ABORIGINES AT KING GEORGE'S SOUND. (From an Original Manuscript by a Resident at King George's Sound) [continued.] Next day, however, a native came in who had been some time in the bush, and who said he had not met with any of Nakina's party, — and the following, or day after, two or three little boys, generally in the Settlement, returned with Talwin, a young man, who had been much indisposed. By them, Nakina sent his English dress, having appropriated ïo himself half of a blanket which I had given to Talwin a day or two before. The latter native I have before mentioned as servant to the Commandant, whom he had left at the commencement of winter. He had been seve- ral times in the Settlement since, and from his first return (only a short time after his leaving his master), he was always more or less sick, and became more and more emaciated. Indeed, for some time before Mokkaré's death, he was danger- ously indisposed. I urged him to stay in the...

MURDER AT THE MURRAY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 August 1834

MURDER AT THE MURRAY RIVER. In addition to the particulars we published in our last, we have obtained the following informa- tion, collected from depositions made by Barron, before the Hon. W. H. Mackie, Esq., Justice of the Peace : He states that he particularly observed Calyute, or Galute, (the native who was liberated from the Jail at Fremantle about six weeks back, where he had been confined, after being severely flogged, for breaking into Mr. Shenton's mill,) when their eyes met, Galute's cou tenance immediately fell, and his eyes were turned to the ground. He also saw Jack, the native who was taken prisoner at the same time with Galute, and confined in the guardhouse at Perth. He also remarked a very tall man whom he had frequently seen before at Perth and Fremantle. After he had caught Galute's eye, he (Galute) went up to the very tall native and said something to him in a low tone of voice, and then they all began to jabbar one to another, and appeared for some time in confu...
