THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 August 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1834. WE ARE still in a painful state of uncertainty respecting the James Patti- son. It is now upwards of seven weeks since the arrival of Governor Sir James Stirling at King Georges sound ; and one month has nearly elapsed since the intimation of it reached head quarters. This delay, which we are satisfied is s attributable alone to the boisterous ¿state of the weather, and the prevalence of northerly winds, is fraught with con siderable inconvenience, and has been the occasion, from the general stagnation which prevails, arising from the uncer- tain position of affairs, of great distress amongst the lower classes. The English mail, we are informed, it was the Governor's express order, should be forwarded, but the Master of the Fanny declined bringing it on, on account of its size. We can but lament that the Governor's consideration for the feelings of the settlers, was thus thwart- ed. THE contract for fresh meat for the ensuing...

GROWTH OF WOOL. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 August 1834

GROWTH OF WOOL. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) THE growth of wool seems to be exciting great interest at the Cape ; and the remarks on this subject in the South African are well deserving of attention. After adverting to the increased im- portation of German Wool into England since the year 1814, that excellent journal remarks : The increase of this valuable species of Stock has not been less remarkable in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land. In' 1810, the quantity of Wool imported into Great Britain from New Holland and Van Die men's Land, was 167 lbs. ! In 1815, it had risen to 73,171 lbs.; in 1820, it was 99,115 lbs. ; in 1825, it amounted to 323,995 lbs., that is, it had more than trebled itself in five years ; in 1827, it was 512,758 lbs,; in 1830, it had reached the astonishing amount of 1,967,309 lbs.,- thus nearly quadrupling itself in three years ! Thus in a new country, certainly not more fa- vourable to the Grazier or Sheep-farmer than our own, the quantity of Wool p...

SHEEP COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 August 1834

SHEEP COMPANY. WE are glad to hear, that several Gentlemen have it in contemplation to form a Company, to consist of 20 share-holders, at £100. a-share, to import 1000 Sheep. Eleven shares are already engaged, and the remainder will no doubt he taken up, immediately on the arrival of Governor Sir James Stirling, when the plan will be more generally made known, and arrangements effected for the purpose of completing the projected scheme. There cannot be the slightest question of the ad" vantages which will result both to those who embark in the speculation and to the Colony at large ; we hope, and, indeed, expect, therefore, the Government will afford every possible facility to the accomplishment of this desirable object We shall relurn again to the subject when the plans are better matured ; in the mean time we I cannot but regret that so many years have been allowed to pass over without bringing this design into operation ;-it has been the subject of con- versation for the last thr...

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 August 1834

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Before the Hon. W. H. Mackie, and the Rev J. B. Wittenoom. William Hill, was charged by Geo. Hodges, of Perth, with the following act of appropriation : - On Tuesday evening last, the prisoner went into Hodges' shop and called for a loaf of bread, which he said was to be put down to Cole's account, for some lime. Hod- ges denied that there was any thing due to Cole on the lime account, when the prisoner took to his heels, with the loaf under his trm, but was soon overtaken and placed in the charge of-Cook the constable, who marched him off to the jail. The prisioner said, in his defence, that he was so drun k, he had no* recol- lection of what had passed. In consider- ation of his having been in'the jail ali night, was fined half the usual fine of 5s. for being drunri, and the constables fees. Hodges said that he was induced to bring forward this charge in conse- quence of his having of late been served the same trick by several poor people. Andreiv Adron, was fi...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 August 1834

VARIETIES. THE black leg is causing great des- truction amongst the cattle in the districts of the Hunter, as high as Liverpool Plains. Numbers of the settlers have lost as many as three and four hundred calves on one run. The young fat cattle appear to be almost exclusively confined to the ravages of this dreadful disease. Bleeding and purging are the remedies generally restored to * but two-thirds die even after they have been bled and physiced. Passing a seton through the fore part of the shoulder, and thereby keeping up à continual irritation and discharge, is said to have been tried with happy effect as a j)reüentalive ; but no remedy for the black leg has yet been discover- ed. About 3000 fine young cattle have been sacrificed to the black leg between Aicorn's and Liverpool Plains. This^is the first visit of the dis- ease in these fertile districts. It is hoped that some medical gentleman will turn his attention to this dreadful distemper.-Sydney Herald. A STROKG RECOMMENDATIO...

CLASSIFICATION OF SHEEP. (From a Correspondent.) r IT is now some time since, you published a cir- cular from Mr. C. Koelz, a native of Germany, who has been for some years employed at exten- sive Sheep Establishments, at Camden, pointing out to the flock masters of this Colony the advan- tages to be derived from a judicious classification of their Sheep, and offering his services to the public in that branch of Sheep husbandry which has been so little known or practised in this Co- lony. I understand that Mr. Koelz Was at that time disappointed in finding the advantages of classifi- cation so little appreciated amongst us; he has" «ince, however, been actively engaged among the Flocks of Mr, Scott, (Glendon) Mr.-A. B, Spark, Dr. Bowman, Mr. Duguid, Mr. Cox, (Hobart Ville) and Captain Pike, at the Hunter, and I understand with every satisfaction to these gentle- men. mi This system of classification is so simple, that the facility it gives to the judicious breeder of im proving his ...

THE BANKING COMPANY. THE Banking Company which is upon the point of being established in the Sister Colonies, and at the Cape of Good Hope, there is every probabili- ty, will extend a Branch to our Settlement. Wre earnestly trust that it may he the case. The Hobart Town Colonists has the following remarks upon the advantages of this estimable establish- ment :- , " The office of Colonial Treasurer here and at Sydney, is abolished; all Government monies will be lodged in this Bank ; and the payment of salaries and all other Colonial monies, will be made through it It will discount at the rate of 7 per cent, and a fixed and legal rate of interest is guaranteed (thanks be to God) to the Colony at last ; and the strong hold of the Usurers is now broken up. Four per cent, will be allowed upon all deposits, evjn of one ?nonth ; and, like the Scotch Banks, every man will be able to draw upon the Bank according to the real value of his estates; thus setting at liberty a capital which hither...

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.] AT this period (Mondyeunung of our tribe) comprising from the latter part of October to the middle of January, the Natives bring in considera-   ble numbers of young parrakeets, and some cocka- toos, to exchange for food. In the commencement of it, too, they brought us a liquid they had long talked about, which they call mungat, and, from some similitude or other, compared it to our oil and to honey. We had understood they collected it from trees, and some thought it was a manna, others a real honey ; all imagined, as they set a value upon it, that it must be good. It proved in reality to be the nectareous fluid of the flowers of the banksia, and when collected and preserved, as they presented it, mixed with the foreign juices not to be avoided in their mode of collect-   ing. The stately cylinders of flowe...

RETURN OF WEEIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 August 1834

RETURN OF WEEIP. WEEIP, the proscribed native, who, with the prospect of obtaining his own pardon and the libe- ration of his son, Bill-yoo-merry, undertook to convey a letter to the white people who were sup- posed to be wrecked to the Northward, returned on Monday last, after an absence of about 22 days. It appears he did not go so far as was expected : probably not further than Bannisters River, which it is imagined impeded his progess. He says, he made inquiry, every where, of all the black men, if thiey knew of any white men on the coast, or any ship. They all said they did not. But Weeip still persists in saying, that they all tell him there is " money plenty" on the shore just where the waves beat on the beach ; that the pieces of money lie on the top of one another, and he indicates that they cover a good space of ground. He was asked where this was, with re- ference to where he had gone : when he said it was very far away. It is presumed that when he found the white men wer...

(From the "Hobart Town Courier.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 August 1834

(From the "Hobart Town Courier."J We invite the attention of the reader to the following picture in America, drawn \o the life by the able hand of Mrs. Trollope. The superior advantages and even enjoyments which Van Die men's Land possesses over the very best part of America, both in a healthy and profitable point of view, have hitherto stood in the way or superseded much of that industry, of winch our American neighbours afford us so good an example. The present critical otate of the Colony will of necessity force us, and that very rapidly too, upon these resources, hitherto far too much neglected, and in a manner despised as beneath our notice. At the same time we wTould give a timely word of advice to our importing merchants in Hobart Town and Launceston, and our exporting ones in London and Liverpool, to be a little more sparing in their speculations, for though it would be madness to affirm so long as from 50 to 100 per cent profit is made on imported British manufactures, that...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 16, 1834. We are not of those who entertain apprehensions for the safety of the " James Pattison/' We are disposed to augur favourably than otherwise, from the continued delay ; caution has no doubt dictated the propriety of awaiting the termination of the gales which have visited our coast, with but partial inter- ruptions, during the past month. Al- though we yield to these considerations of prudence, the anxiety of the Colonists at large for the arrival of Sir James Stirling, daily increases. The estahlishment of a Union Club, on the plan adopted in London, modelled to meet the economical views of our Colonists, has long been considered a desideratum; we are therefore pleased to find that the scheme has been taken in hand, and that a meeting is called for Wednesday -next. ?> The design is a laudable one, and from the general views , entertained of the advantages of such an establishment, we have not the slightest doubt it will s...
