Mr. Tanner, Secretary. TO THE DIRECTORS OF THE AGRICUL- TURAL SOCIETY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Gentlemen, I observe in the» Gazette of the 19th ultimo, a letter addressed to the President of the Agricul- tural Society of Swan River, by Mr, O'Brien, of New South Wales, on a disease which has a fleeted his flock, and which he supposes to be the same as that by which the Sheep of this Colony suffered so much last year, and on which 1 had the honour of presenting a Report to the Society ; whether he is right in this conjectufeor not, the Sheep-owners of Swan River feel greatly obliged by his efforts to elucidate the cause of a disease so formidable. I must, however, beg to suggest, that although Mr. O'Brien states h3 " is aware, from experience, that" 1 have u taken an erroneous view of the matter," he ...

JOHN DAY. A Pathetic Ballad. "A Day after the fair."—Old Proverb. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 August 1834

JOHN DAY. A Pathetic Ballad. " A Day after the fair."-Old Proverb. John Day he was the biggest man Of all the coachmen kind, With back too broad to be conceived By any narrow mind. The very horses knew his weight When he was in the rear, And wish'd his box a Christmas box To come but once a-year. Alas ! against the shafta of love, What armour can avail? Soon.Cupid sent an arrow through His scarlet coat of mail. The bar-maid of the Crown he loved. From whom he never ranged ; For though he changed his horses there, His love he never changed» He thought her fairest of all fares, So fondly love prefers ; And often, among twelve outsides, Deemed no outside like tier's. One day, as she was sitting down Beside the porter-pump He came and knelt with all his fat, And made an offer plump. Said she, 4 My taste will never learn T© like so huge a man ; So I must beg you will come here As little as you can.' But still he stoutly urged his suit, With vows, and sighs, and tears, Yet could not pierc...

ANECDOTES AND REMARKS RELATIVE TO THE ABORIGINES AT KING GEORGE'S SOUND. (From an Original Manuscript by a Resident at King George's Sound.) [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 August 1834

ANECDOTES AND REMARKS RELATIVE TO THE ABORIGINES AT KING GEORGE'S SOUND. (From an Original Manuscript by a Resident at King Georges Sound.) [concluded.] On the 1st of April, Toolunggatwallé and Twattum, two of the proscribed party for theft sent in a mission offering to purchase their pardon with fish. I admitted them to a rather formal au- dience, lectured them (with what effect I say not) on their improper conduct, warned them of the risk of being shot on any repetition, extracted a promise with the greatest ease not to steal again, (its observance is quite another thing), and hav- ing made them present their fish, a double quanti- ty of which I desired them (but to no purpose) to bring next day, to the person who had suffered by the theft, I told them to go, and steal no more. That it is a punishment to be excluded from the Settlement, and undoubtedly so if the exiles are afraid of the other Natives, is thus shewn The extent of it appears less when we know that many more fish had...

(Answer to the above Address.) Perth, August 21, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 August 1834

(Answer to the above Address.") Perth, August 21, 1834. Gentlemen, I beg leave to assure you, that the congratula- tions which you have done me the honor to offer on the occasion of my return to this Colony, are deeply felt and will be long preserved by me amongst the most agreeable recollections of my life. The deficiency of Bread at this moment, and the scarcity of employment amongst certain classes of the community, arising out of the circumstances of this particular season of the year, it will be come my duty to attend to, and at the earliest possible period to alleviate, if not entirely to re- move the pressure they occasion. Connected with these points is the good conduct which you repre-   sent as having characterized the labouring part of the population of your Town, in expressing the pleasure which I feel at this portion of your com- munication, I have to add, that if any thing were wanting to urge me to promote the real welfare of that class, I should find a s...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." Sí a,-T shall offer no apology for making a few ] j remarks on the very fatal disease, of such vital I importance to us all, so well described by your j ; Correspondant Dr. Harris, with whose observa- tions (ni the appearai ces of the animals after death, mine perfectly accord ; .but I am of opinion j j that it is only by repeated and careful observation I that we can discover the cause that deprives so , many animals, apparently in perfect health in the ¡ morning, before night, of life,-and appear to use j scarcely any violence in the operation, as the animals attacked seem to make scarcely any re- sistance to its dangerous and fatal advances. My observations upon this subject were made some time since, on dissecting a fine young Ewe, a croj) between the Leister and Merino : ehe went out in the morning, with the rest of Hw flock, ap- j ¡pirentlyin perfect health, fed as usual, for most) ¡ part of the day ; but when my son was ab...

(Answer to the preceding Address.) Perth, August 22, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 August 1834

(Answer to the preceding Address.) Perth, August 22, 1834. Gentlemen, The address with which you have bean pleased to charge yourselves on the part of the inhabitants of Perth and its vicinity, demands my warmest acknowledgements. It appeals to circumstances and past events io which neither f nor any other colonist in this Country can ever recur, without the excite- ment of the deepest emotions. Amongst the feelings which it calls forth, one of the most af- fecting to myself is, the recollection o-r the Jong continued reliance which the Settlers ti large have been at all times îeady to express, in relation to those measures which my ofiicê has required me to adopt, in the promotion of the general in- terests of the Settlement. This confidence it will be my study to preserve, as far, at least, as it can be promoted, by an honest and zealous execu- tion of the duties of my trust. T!ie arrangements which my presence in Eng- land enabled me to accomplish are of a nature so various and c...

THE ABORIGINES. (From the "Hobart Town Courier.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 August 1834

THE ABORIGINES. (From the " Hobart Town Courier") There are now about 80 of the aborigines at the establishment at Great Island. They are all, we rejoice to learn, most happy and contented in their new situation, and are daily acquiring a relish for industrious and civilized habits. They are ready at all times to assist actively in any operation of building huts, cultivating the land, &c. that is going on, while they continue at the same time to make excursions into bush in quest of kangaroos and wallabies, which are found plentiful within a short distance of the settlement At this season the mutton birds have deserted Green Island, opposite the establishment, but in the summer months they make little excursions thither in the boat, returning with a plentiful supply. . It is we believe in contemplation to fix the per- manent position of this interesting settlement on a very eligible site on the coast about 15 miles to the north of Green Island With the exception that as yet ...

ARRIVAL OF GOVEROR SIR JAMES STIRLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 August 1834

ARRIVAL OF GOVEROR SIR JAMES STIRLING. His Excellency Sir James Stirling, with his amiable Lady and family, arrived in Gages Roads, in the James Pattison, late on Tuesday night.   The vessel hove in sight about 10 o'clock in the   morning, and instant preparations were made to give His Excellency a cordial welcome. Owing to contrary winds, the vessel did not reach the anchorage until between 12 and 1 o'clock at night ; the principal residents at Fremantle, however, anxious to be first to testify their gratification at His Excellency's return, although at this late hour, proceeded on board - and were received with the usual urbanity and kindness which has ever marked His Excellency's deportment, and endeared him to all classes of our community. We are compelled to postpone, until our next, the account of His Excellency's landing, and re- ception at Perth. The following Addresses, in the mean time, will fully convey the sentiments of the inhabitants of the to...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 August 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1834. ¡ The English intelligence we have received by the James Pattison, comes up to, nearly, the same period of that conveyed to us by the Eagle from Sydney; the principal features have already ap- peared in our columns. From the Cape of Good Hope we have no local news of importance. Our usual file of the Cape Advertiser has not come to hand, owing, we presume, to some oversight. Such informa- tion as we may be enabled to collect in time for our next, we shall therefore be under the neces- sity of deriving from private sources. The James Pattison left Spithead on the 9th Feb., after a detention, owing to contrary winds, of nearly 3 months : arrived at the Cape of Good Hope on the 12th May where she remained for 10 days, and reached King George's Sound on the   19th June : where again, partly owing to the weather and the refractory state of the crew, she was again delayed, and only made this Port on Tuesday last, havi...

This Town, in common with other parts of the Colony, has, during your absence, been visited by its seasons of distress, and is still suffering under a scarcity and high price of bread, and a deficiency of employment for the labouring classes.

INQUIRY Into the circumstances attending the death of Crear, late a private in his Majesty's 21st Regt., taken before the Hon. W. H. Mackie, R. Mc B. Brown, and John Lewis, Esquires, Justices of the   Peace. Ralph Entwistle, of Perth, labourer, being sworn, deposed, that after breakfast on the morn-   ing of the 19th inst., he went out with Crear (the deceased) into the bush about a mile or two to cut wood and split palings for Captain Daniell. When they had got to the spot where they had been to work a day or two before, Crear told him (Entwistle) to light a fire ; and he was in the act of doing so, when a fowling-piece, which Crear had carried out with him, went off, and at the same time Crear cried out " Oh Lord, I am shot !" He (Entwistle) turned round and asked him who had shot him? He answered, "the gun went off." The deponant was unloosening his stock, when the deceased fell down.
