The validity of Gazes will objected to by Mr Butler. The case ordered to stand over in consequence of the Plaintiff having left the Will at home.

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. Up to the 13th August. We are indebted to the Cape Adver- tiser for this recent intelligence. By the kindness of some friends we have been favored with English Papers so late as the 13th of August. A battle had been fought in Portugal, and both sides claim the victory, which shows that nothing decisive had been done. King Leopold was in France, marrying Louis Phillips daughter. Their Majesties were expected at Brussels on the 12th. The acts of the German despots at Frankfort continue to be spoken of every where with the fiercest execrations, scarcely less strong than those heaped on their brother the "Miscreant" of Russia This latter worthy continues the torture of Poland He has abolished the Polish National Uniform.

Thomas Dent, was brought up charged with committing a violent assault upon his wife, Chairman. - Gentlemen of the Jury this is it very aggravated case, and as similar assaults have been very prevalent in the Colony, we should wish you to give particular attention to the evidence We have reason to believe that the prosecut- rix has been intimidated and deterred from coming here by some threats which have been held out. Prisoner I have never threatened her. Chairman - I did not impute it to you or any individual but I repeat gentle- men it is our belief that the prosecutrix has been intimidated, therefore in order that the ends of Justice may not be de- feated, we must treat the case. as though she was prevented from attending by ill- ness.

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 January 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. TO THE PUBLIC. Fully sensible of the many obligations I owe to my Friends and the Public, for the flattering manner in which the an- nouncement of the arrival of a new Press was received ; and with every acknow- ledgment for the kind assurances of sup- port and patronage which have been vol- untarilly proferred, I again commence my labours in a cause (the true interests of the Colony) which it shall be my constant and unremitting study to advance. My previous exertions though of ne- cessity greatly circumscribed, I have a gratification in reflecting, met with the approval of those persons whose good opinion I value ; I feel myself therefore relieved from the unpleasant and hacknied task of vaunting my principals and in- tentions : I would only remark that no exertion or expense shall be spared to merit and retain the "golden opinions" &nbsp; from all classes, which I feign cherish the hope I have hitherto enjoyed. The general satisfaction whic...

CIVIL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 January 1833
CIVIL COURT. Before G.F. Moore Esqr. Commissioner. &nbsp; Wm. Marrs v Smith, Lewis, Smythers, Duffield, Lukin, and Herd charged with "conspiring &nbsp; to injure the person and character of the &nbsp; Plaintiff, and for committing an Assault and &nbsp; Battery, Damages £500." The two latter, it was stated by the other Defend ants, Mr. Clarke, (the Plaintiffs Solicitor) had ac- knowledged, were included in the charge, in order to prevent their being witnesses. It was therefore urged that they should be struck out. Mr. Clarke objecting, the Jury were impanneled. Mr. Clarke opened the Case. This was a sin- &nbsp; gular, and disgraceful instance of inhospitality to a Stranger, for which he claimed redress from a Jury of Britains. The Plaintiff had been a Chairmaker at Carlisle, and had emigrated to Hobart Town, and Sydney, where he joined a Mr. Charles Smith in Partnership, and the general Cargo of the "Governor Bourke," was one of their Speculati...
COLONEL HANSONS PAMPHLET [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 January 1833
COLONEL HANSONS PAMPHLET &nbsp; &nbsp; COLONEL HANSONS PAMPHLET We have great pleasure in laying be- fore our Readers the following extract from a Printed Pamphlet, by Colonel Hanson, the Quarter Master General at Madras. The interest it has excited here will we trust plead our excuse with the Colonel for rendering Public, that which he intended merely for Private distribu- tion. The climate of swan River in the Winter Season is as favourable to health as can well be imagined. I am told however that the heat of summer is near- ly equal to the heat of India, and tho' less debilitat- ing to the constitution it is frequently very oppress- ive. The great draw-back to this settlement is the present intricate Navigation into the Harbour. Reefs of Rocks extend Seaward from Rottenest Is- land, Pulo Carnac, &c. &c. and although there is a safe channel into Cockburn Sound, yet the passage requires a Pilot, and in the event of a Westerly Gale, the Ship would be ...
(From the Hobart Town [?]on September 7) SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 January 1833
(From the Hobart Town Courier September 7) SWAN RIVER &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We have great pleasure in presenting the reader with the following account of Swan River, Port Au- gusta, and King George's sound, from the minutes taken by Mr. Stocker, during his late visit to these settlements. Such an account must be highly satis- factory to all parties, after having been wearied with the conflicting reports, which have all along reached us, and from Mr Stocker's long experience in colonial matters, and his correct judgment as an agriculturist, we do not know any one on the cor- rectness of whose opinion we could more safely de- pend: The crops in Western Australia, (July 1832) looked as promising as any I ever witnessed in Van Diemen's land, of which I am one of the oldest re- sidents. Those on the Swan and Canning rivers. consisting of wheat, barley, oats and potatoes are remarkably luxuriant, and give every promise of abundance. The wheat grown last year, weighe...
Perth, January 2nd, 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 January 1833
Perth, January 2nd, 1833 Mr. Editor, Sir. By inserting the following it will &nbsp; greatly oblige my Brother Colonists and myself, feeling fully confident some of the Gentlemen Offi- cers of His Majesty's 63rd Reg. of Foot, either stationed here or otherwise, will give some Infor- mation why they allow or suffer a private of the above named Reg., to reside out of the Barracks, or Barrack Ground of Western Australia, and car- ry on a very extensive trade to the very great inju- ry of the Settlers, who embarked their little all, left their Friends, and dear Native Country Old England, (not only to avoid the heavy Taxation levied on them there,) but to establish themselves here in some trade or business to gain an honest, industrious, and respectable livelihood for their wives and families in this Colony; but all this is frustrated by a portion of the Privates of the 63rd Reg., who not only reside out of their Barracks but trade in any way they think proper. One of the individ...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 January 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. In the hurry of going to Press last week we overlooked many inaccuracies, which has annoyed us, as much as it has amused some of our Readers. We are glad to contribute in any way to so des- irable an end, and we trust considering the difficulties we have to contend with we shall not be judged too severely. The Promise of an abundant Harvest which has been generally anticipated, is, now fully realized; and the Farmers are all actively and profitably employed. The season has proved highly favourable and we have no small gratification in pro nouncing, the produce of this years growth equal to 5 month consumption. We state this in order that the reports which will no doubt obtain credence, owing to the success of the Agriculturists, may not be exaggerated ; in two or three years we shall be independent (for this article) of any foreign supplies, but it is idle to imagine that we can depend upon our internal resourses at an earlier period. The Farmers are ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, Fremantle January 13th, 1833. Sir, &nbsp; &nbsp; In consequence of what appeared in your paper of Saturday last respecting a Meeting which took place not far from Perth, I consider it my duty to refute a statement that might prove injuriously er ronious in its consequences, I beg leave to inform you Mr. L. did not send a Challenge consequently could not retract, and I take the liberty of adding whatever Mr, L's conduct might have been the pre- &nbsp; ceeding evening, his behaviour on the ground was most honourable and Gentlemanly. Mr. L's note is yet in existance, and I defy any person to construe it a challenge, or in any way &nbsp; animadvert, Mr. L's conduct on the morning in question, which was Wednesday and not Monday as was stated in your paper. &nbsp; By given publicity to this you will greatly oblige A Witness.
(Extract from the Launceston Advertiser. 22nd November. 1832.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 January 1833
(Extract from the Launceston Advertiser. 22nd November. 1832. THE extraordinary panic that exists in our com- mercial world, and consequently affects every inter- est of our little body, is truly distressing. We do not pretend to foretell where it will end. Specie seems entirely to be withdrawn from circulation ; nothing but notes being obtainable. It is with the greates difficulty exchange of a note can be made, except at the Bank ; and unless some prompt mea- sures are adopted, the cashiers, we foresee, will be drained by the Assistant Treasurer's drafts, and every fraction of our gold and silver will be locked up in the Commissariat chests. We shall be bank rupts ; with effects to pay 40s. in the pound, if re- quired. The county of Cornwall is still wealthy ; but our wealth lies in flocks and herds, and land, One measure that will aid us will be, the people exercising confidence in each other, and giving time for re-action. The present dilemma is the effect of too great an indulg...
