ROAD GANGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 31 January 1835

ROAD GANGS. " One day last week, says a correspondent in the Hobart Town Courier, my shepherd was re- turning to his flock, and when about a mile from the house, his dog, which followed him, atti acted his attention by barking and running to a thick part of the scrub ; on going up to the place he found two men, apparently belonging to a neigh- bouring gang, skinning a sheep. As they threat- ened him, and being without arms, he thought it best to hasten home and inform me On return- ing to the spot, however, the birds were flown, but the carcase of one of my best woolled ewes was left behind, hanging from the branch of'a tree half skinned. 1 immediately turned my horse and rode as fast as I could to the road huts, but inquiring for the overseer, whom in my ignorance I mistook for the chief of the party, I was told he knew nothing about it, the men could not be mustered before me at that time, as, being Satur- day afternoon, they were variously employed for themselves. For themselves ...

CACHEMERE-ANGQRA GOATS. Attention having been directed to the introduction of the Cachemere-rAn gora goat into this Colony, by a gentle- man who has recently arrived from Sydney, the following interesting account ol the " origin and progress of the new race Cachemere-Angora," will, we con- ceive, be acceptable to our Readers. This account we, have obtained from the transactions of ihe Society of Arts, com^ municated to the committee by W. Riley» Esq, of New South Wales, a gentleman who has been highly successful in the importation^ to New South Wales of two flocks of the finest Saxon sheep, and has introduced the celebrated Cachemere Angora goat,-with considerable ad van-, tage to himself and benefit to the Coleto y. During an agricultural tour on the conti- nent in 182§, the, Cachemere flocks of M. Ternaux attracted his attention ; but as the average produce did not exceed 3 ounces, he deferred for a time sending any* of them to Australia, He was ad~ vised to see the stock of M. Po...

SECONDARY PUNISHMENTS. (From the "Edinburgh Review.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 February 1835

SECONDARY PUNISHMENTS. (From the " Edinburgh Review") We have not room in this article to enter further into the subject of prison discipline, which would present many interesting and important heads of inquiry. There is a preliminary question to which, we think, it will be more useful to direct our attention-namely, whether imprison- ment should be a substitute for transportation, and constitute, in future, the only punishment for criminals ?-or whether, on the other hand, as the Committee have recommended, the two punishments should be combined, by subjecting offenders sentenced to transportation, to a pre- liminary punishment at home ! The grounds on which a preference has bein given to the latter alternative are thus stated in the Report :- " Al 14 though transportation as known to the practice "of this country, appears inadequate, ii inflicted " as the sole penalty of crimes of a deeper dye, it " may be considered a most valuable ingredient in u the system of secondary punishme...

Seizure of the Property belonging to the Pri[?]oners convicted at the last Special Sessions of plundering the wreck of the "Cumberland," and now under sentence of transportation. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 7 February 1835

Seizure of the Property belo7igivg to the Pri on- ers convicted at the last Special Sessions of " plundering the wreck of the " Cumberland,'* and now under sentence of transportation. A few days back, information having been given that the prisoners implicated in the above robbery were planning their escape in their own boats, and were converting all their a\ailab)e property into stores or money, to assist their design, immediate steps were taken to secure what remained,-and nine cart loads of goods of various descriptions were seized and removed from the premises of Keats and Thomas. It was but a fortnight back we hinted, in allu- sion to a petition got up for ihs purpose of urging the detention of our own prisoners in the Colony, that sympathy would too soon be excited for the criminals;-the fact is already proved, for we hear many mouths exclaiming against the right of the Crown to exercise the power it has en- forced, and the justice of what is termed an arbi- trary proceeding. ...

SELECT POETRY. A WATERLOO BALLAD. (From " Hood's Comic,Annual.""J 1 To Waterloo, with sad ado, And many a sigh and groan, Amongst the dead came Patty Head, To look for Peter Stone. * O prithee tell, good sentinel, If I shall find him here 1 I'm come to weep upon his corse, My Ninety Second dear ! 4 Into our town a serjeant came, With ribands all so fine, A flaunting in his cap-alas! His bow enlisted mine ! 4 They taught him how to turn his toes. And stand as stiff as starch ; I thought that it was love and May, But it was love and March ! * A sorry march indeed, to leave Tile friends he might have kept, No march of intellect it was, But quite a foolish step. * O prithee tell, good sentinel, If hereabout he lies ? I want a corpse with reddish hair, And very sweet blue eyes. 1 Her sorrow on the sentinel Appear'dSto deeply strike : ' Walk in,' he said, * among the dead, And pick out whica you tike/ 4 And soon she picked out Peter Stone, Half turned into a corse ; A cannon wa» his bolst...

SYDNEY AND VAN DIEMEN'S LAND INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 February 1835

SYDNEY AND VAN DIEMENS LAND INTELLIGENCE. It will give much satisfaction to the Emigrants and free-born of Australia, to learn, that the cause of virtual repre- sentation has experienced a triumph at Swan River. A Colony of free men, of yesterday's growth, has outstripped this Colony in the growth of sound Eng- lish principles. A Colony in the fourth or fifth year of her existence, has re- ceived a Legislative Council ; and that Council, from the first hour in which it met, was thrown open to the public and the press. Happy in the absence of Convict labor and Convict principles, and in the enjoyment of a plain, unso- phisticated, and high-minded Governor. Swan River has taken her rank amongst the colonial possessions of the Crown ; and has sanctioned the nearest approach to taxation by representation, which circumstances will permit. It is worthy of regret, that this colony has forfeited the honor of leading the van in this important particular. Swan River has burst the fetters of p...

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1835. -ôoo By the Eagle, Captain Pratt, from Sydney, we have intelligence from the Sister Colonies up to the 5th of January last, and English news to the end of August, 1834, derived from our files of the Sydney Herald, and Sydney Gazette. The Eagle left Sydney on the 6th of January, touched at Launceston, which port she left on the 18th, and, after a delay of twenty-four hours at King George's Sound, arrived here on the 13th inst. She sailed from this port on the 2d Nov. for Hobart-town and Syd- ney.
