By the Thames— Mr. John George Stubberfield.   By the Calista— Mrs. Erl (Wilcox), the wife of Robert Wilcox, who is an inmate of the Mount Eliza Invalid Depot. A clergyman writes to say that, though infirm and of impaired health, she manages to support herself by needle-work. She was the first settler’s wife who landed at Fre- mantle, in 1829, having arrived the 5th of August of that year, in the ship Calista, with her first husband — Richard Erl, a carpenter, who, with herself, was an inden- tured servant to Colonel Latour. Erl left the colony in 1838, owing to scarcity of work, in a whaler for America, with instructions for his wife to follow him the succeeding year; but owing to his premature death, shortly after his arrival in America, she remained in the colony, and subsequently married her present husband, Wilcox. We have endeavored to render the list as perfect as possible. It is not improb- able, however, that in consequence of the scattered state of the population many omissions have been made. In addition to the above the following list of persons who arrived during the first year of the settlement of the colony— 1829-30— has been furnished to us : — Mr. and Mrs. Dyer, Mr. and Mrs. G. Glyde, Mrs. Pearse, Mrs. John Duffield, Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Stirling, Mr. Walter Padbury, Mr. Henry Strickland, Mr. Thomas Williams, Mrs. Fred.

Stone and Burt's   new Music Hall will be opened for a public tea-meeting and concert, and a dance will follow in the Town Hall, for the working-men and their families. Mr. S. H. Parker, M.L.C., Chairman of the City Council, will take the chair. The success of such a re-union in connection with the working classes claims the sympathy and support of all sections of society. THE NATIVE MISSION. —While the in-   habitants were awaiting the arrival of His Excellency to turn the first sod of the Eastern Railway, Mr. Henry Albert, the well-known butcher of Fremantle, went among the crowd hat in hand and collected no less than £4 on behalf of the Native and Half-Caste Mission. How consider- ate! Now would be the time for our Nabobs to make endowments for institu- tions for the welfare of the natives. OURSELVES — We present our subscribers, to-day, with a special issue of the Inquirer, containing a detailed account of the Jubilee celebrations in Perth, Fremantle, and Guildford, and the provincial towns. We have also distributed a large number of copies among the citizens, as a memento of the great event in our history. THE CAPITAL OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA— It is not generally known that Perth was named by Sir James Stirling after the city in Scotland, which was his birthplace.
