CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette.' THE UNION CLUB. Res parvœ concordiâ crescunt. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 September 1834
CORRESPONDENCE. to the Editor of the " Perth Gazette:\ THE UNION CLUB. Res parvo concordia crescunt. Sir,-The benefits which might hereafter accrue to this Colony from the establishment of a society accordant in principle and action to the above title, are so obvious that more than a rapid review of some few of them would on this occasion be tedious and uilhecesbary. They consist of, the associating of acquaintance ; the commencing or cemeniing of friendship 5 the convenience and comforts of a well-attended room and table at all times ready for the reception and entertainment of the members ; who, as the institution is evidently intended to be more of a public than private nature, may be supposed to consist of those indi- viduals of the various professions ahd interests, constituting a community, who, respectable in their habits and manners, are entitled by courtesy and modern usage to rank as Gentlemen. Here, although not founded for the express purpose, subjects of general interes...

PROSPECTUS OF "THE ROYAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA AND SOUTH AFRICA." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 September 1834
PROSPECTUS OF "THE ROYAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA AND SOUTH AFRICA." The concurrent testimony of many public writers and well informed persons has proved to demonstration, that sources of present prosperity and future greatness abound in Australia, Van Diemen's Latid, the Cape of Good Hope, and various other British Colonies,-but that they are in a great degree unavailing to the Colonists and the Parent Country, from the want of the proper means of developement. This indisputable fact is followed by another not less so, namely, that no means can be devised more efficacious to work a rapid improvement in the Colonies than the establishment therein of Joint Stock Banks, with ample Capital, and conducted on sound principles, nor can a moment be chosen more favourable .to the success of an undertaking for that purpose than the present, when inactive Capital superabounds, and the principles of safe Banking are so well understood With reference to the advantages which the Proprietors of such E...

JUVENILE EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 September 1834
JUVENILE EMIGRATION. A Meeting of the Committee appointed to su- perintend the apprenticing and disposal of the Children placed, in England, under the charge of His Excellency Sir James Stirling, and recently arrived by the James Pattison, took place at the Government-house on Tuesday last, when it was determined to give publicity to the Notice which appears in this day's Journal From this may he collected, the terms of ap- prenticeship, which we consider highly liberal, and advantageous to those Settlers requiring additional &nbsp; cheap labour. The present pressure of the times, arising from the scarcity of provisions, has rendered this an unfavourable moment for the introduction or commencement of a new system ; the Children are therefore not all permanently settled, but, with the exception of two boys, have obtained such situations, as it is to be hoped their good conduct will cause them to retain. The anxiety of the Parent Society to have the moral and religious instruc...

SELECT POETRY. TRANSLATION FROM THE GULL LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 September 1834
SELECT POETRY. TRANSLATION FROM THE GULL LANGUAGE. BY DOCTOR BOWRING. Scripte manet. 'Twas graved on the Stone of Destiny,* In letters four, and letters three ; And ne'er did the King of the Gulls go ly But those awful letters scared his eye ; For he knew a Prophet Voice had said, As long as those words by man were read, The ancient race of the Gulls should ne'er One hour of peace or plenty share. But years on years successive flew, And the letters still more legible grew At top, a T, an H, an E, And underneath, D. E. B. T. Some thought them Hebrew,-such as Jews, Who deal more in Scrip than Scripture,- use ; While some surmised 'twas an ancient way Of keeping acconnts (well known in the day Of the famed Didlerius Jeremias, Who had thereto a wonderful bias), And proved in books, most learn'dly boring, 'Twas called the Pontick way of scoring. Howe'er this be, there never was yet Seven letters of the alphabet, That, 'twixt them, formed so grim a spell, Or scared a land of Gulls so well...
THE WOOL TRADE. (From an English Paper dated April, 1834.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 September 1834
THE WOOL TRADE. (From an English Paper dated April, 1834.) " The attention of manufacturers and others engaged in the Wool Trade has been drawn, dur- ing the last three days, to a series of public sales of Wool, the results of which was looked for m Yorkshire, the west of England, and other places where wools are extensively used with the greatest solicitude, the present high prices of the staple article of trade, having, in some instances, tended to induce the manufacturers to refrain from work- ing to the extent they would have done had the raw material been attainable upon easier terms. The demand which exists, however, for manufac- tured woollen, rendered the importers of colonial and other wools extremely firm, and the sales, as far as they have proceeded, tend to show that no chance exists, at least for the present, of a reduc- tion in- prices. The stated quantity of wool declared for sale during the present week amounted to nearly 3,200 bales, of which nearly 2,400 bales are ...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. DISCOVERY OF A WHITE COLONY ON THE NORTHERN SHORE OF NEW HOLLAND [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 September 1834
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. DISCOVERY OF A WHITE COLONY ON THE NORTHERN SHORE OF NEW HOLLAND In the Leeds Mercury of Saturday, we find some interesting extracts from the private journal of a gentleman, lately arrived from Singapore, via India overland, who had been one of the party who landed at Raffles Bay, on the north coast of New Holland, on the 10th April, 1832, and made a two month's excursion into the interior. After travelling for several days over nothing but barren hills and rocks, and parching plains, with- out meeting with a single tribe of aborigines, ex- cept those on the sea coast, and having to dig for water every day, they reached the summit of a hill, whence, looking to the southward, they saw below them, at a distance of about three or four miles, a low and level country, laid out, as it were, in plantations, with straight rows of trees, through which a broad sheet of water extended in nearly a direct line from east to west, as far as the eye could reach to the westward...

(From the "South African Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 September 1834
(From the " South African Advertiser "J The Bill for the Commutation and Redemption of Tithes, is now before the House of Commons. The following Analysis will give a pretty correct idea of its nature and provisions : ''Valuers are to be appointed in the different counties, whose duiy it will be to ascertain the actual annual value of the land in each parish now subject to tithes, distinguishing the land into two classes-arable and not arable. The rent paid, it is presumed, will in,general be taken to be the annual value ; so that actual valuation will not be necessary except where the landi is manifestly let above or below its real value, and where the parties cannot agree, b(r where fraud or collusion, is suspected. ; ,X5e : valueri' will in. like manner ascertain the amount of tithe» paid by the same lands in each parish on the average of the last five years, distingushing the amount paid . by the arable, and the amount paid by the not arable. This having been done for each parish...

EXPEDITION TO CENTRAL AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 September 1834
EXPEDITION TO CENTRAL AFRICA. ON Thursday morning the Expedition for ex- ploring Central Africa, under the command of Dr. Smith, proceeded on its perilous undertaking. Dr. Smith took up his quarters at the. Royal Observatory on Wednesday night, and was joined the next morning at breakfast by Sir John and Lady Herschell, Baron Ludwig,-Messrs. Edye, -Bell,-Burrow, and the gentlemen who accom- pany the party as far as Lattakoo. After packing up the astronomical instruments, they started in excellent spirits, making allowance for those feelings the. occasion excited, where solicitude for the safe return of these enterprising men was mixed up with sincere friendship and es- teem. Ihdeed the history of all fermer expedi- tions to the Interior of Africa prove how much hazard must be incurred, even where the greatest prudence and address are exercised. The present has been planned with much care, and considering the talents of Dr. Smith, there is a strong hope that it will be crowned with s...
