CIVIL COURT. Perth, October 7th, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834

CIVIL COURT. Perth, October 7th, 1834. Before W. H. Mackie, Esquire, Commis- sioner. Samson v. Scott.-This was an action to reco- ver from the defendant, as agent for Capt. Mid- dleton, the value of certain packages shipped in London on board the James Pattison, and not delivered. Mr. L. Samson handed in the bill of lading. Mr. Clark, for the defendant, held that he was not liable, inasmuch as he was merely agent for Captain Middleton, who had gone on board at Portsmouth after all the goods were shipped, and had not signed the bills of lading. He maintained that either Captain Grote, the original captain, who had signed the bills of lading, or the owners were solely responsible. _The Commissioner observed, that the admission of such an objection would establish a dangerous precedent. There could be no doubt that the Master taking the command after it had been re- signed by another, would take it with all respon sibility ; and he should hold that Mr. Scott was liable to the extent of...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1834. We hear that, in accordance with the general regulations in regard to the Civil Establishment, two senior Mem- bers of Council (Capt. JR. Daniell, H. M.'s 21st Regt, Commandant, and the Hon. P. Brown, Colonial Secretary,) have been appointed lo audit the ac- counts relating to the collection and dis- bursement of Public Money. The Hon. J. S. Koe, Esq, Surveyor-General, and the Hon. G. F. Moore, Esq., Advocate General, form a Committee of Council for obtaining information with regard to Hoads and Public works, and to them all communications on that subject are to be addressed. Our intelligence from King George's Sound by the Fanny, does not speak very favorably of the progress the settlers are making. We should fear, from what we can learn, that the pecuniary resources of the gentlemen who have taken up their residence in that quarter, have induced them to disregard the im- portance of mental and physical exertion in a new c...

TEA TRADE QUESTION. (From the "TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 October 1834

TEA TRADE QUESTION. {From the "Times.") It was announced in Parliament, by the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer, more than three weeks ago, that the East India Company would offer for the consumption of the community, at their quarterly sales, about 4,000,000 pounds of tea more in the ensuing year than they had disposed of in the last. The natural presumption was that the prices would fall, and that the public would reap the advantage of the increased quantity at a diminution of cost. A triple object would thus be accomplished-1st, the company at Leadenhall would get rid of their stock in hand, without in- terfering injuiiously with the private trader when the tea trade should be entirely opened ; 2dly, the public would have the benefit of greater cheapness arising from an increased quantity; 3dly, while the revenue benefitted by the change, the transi- tion from a strict monopoly to a perfectly free trade, in. an article which has almost become a necessary of life, would be less viole...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 October 1834

CORRESPONDENCE. -00 to the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Mr. Editor,-There are few so completely in- different to the happiness of those around them as not to feel concern at the spread, or even the rise, of opinions, which, though couched in temperate language, añ(J on subjects unquestionably open to discussion, have yet a tendency to make any one portion of the Public mistrustful of another, and discontented with those important institutions, on which their liberties and properties chiefly depend. This is more especially the case, when the experi- ence of ages appears to forbid the hope that any safe or wise attempt can be made to remedy the defects* alleged by such opinions to exist. Under this impression Ï venture the following observa- tions on the subject of a letter in your last number under the signature of " a Calm Observer :" There can be no doubt that your Correspondent is so far accurate that, in a small community like this, there is such an extended interest in the af...

MOUNTED POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 October 1834

MOUNTED POLICE.   This Corps promises, according to the arrange- ments laid down by His Excellency Sir James Stirling, to afford a most essential protection to the Colonists against the attacks of the Natives, as well as to facilitate the conveyance of despatches and the mail, with safety, throughout the Colony ; also offering a daily escort to persons passing up and down the country. Security for our lives and property is no trifling consideration. Seven Privates and three Officers are already mounted; the dresses and accoutre- ments were delivered to them about ten days back,   but as some drilling is required both for horses and men, it need not be a matter of surprise that they have so seldom appeared up the country on active duty. The Officers of this Corps are Gen- tlemen of practical experience, and the men al- ready selected are some of the soldiers of the 63d Regt., who claimed their discharge in the Colony, and finer men could not possibly have be...

DRIED FISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 October 1834

DRIED FISH. As a proof of the care and attention requisite in the drying or curing of fish, we give the following extracts. With us, it appears, that the mere ex- posure of the fish to the sun, after they have been in some instances most probably but indifferently cleansed, is considered sufficient labour to be dis- posed upon them, even without the aid of salt. The dried fish which affected Mr. Morrell's family last week had not the slightest appearance of hav- ing been salted, and were prepared, we expect, after the manner we have described. How diffe- rent the method adopted in the cod fishery. Dried Cod-I he'principal fishery for this article is,' from Cape Rose to the bay des Exports, along the coast of Placentea, in which compass there arc divers commodious ports for the fish to be dried in. These, though of the same kind with the fresh cod, are much smaller, and there- fore fitter to keep, as the salt penetrates moie easily into them. The fishery of both is much alike; only t...
