THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL, SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 1835. . , -000-. THE Gov. schooner " Ellen" has .con-, veyed away to Hobart Town the five individuals, Ledgard, Thomas, Warde, Keats, and Thorne, who were found guilty, some short time back, of stealing sundry articles from the wreck of the " Cumberland ;" also a prisoner, a pri- &nbsp; vate in the 21et Regt, under a.charge of having threatened to shoot his com- manding officer, Lieut. Stewart. The case was pronounced to be one of too serious a nature to admit of a court martial being held in this Colony ; the prisoner is consequently sent to head- quarters, with the several witnesses, to stand his trial. A singular report was circulated at Perth, a few days ago, respecting the detachment of the 21st stationed at the &nbsp; &nbsp; Murray. It would appear, that Lieut Armstrong left the Murray, some short, time back, in consequence of a serious attack of illness, and was confined to his bed at Fremantle (not be...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1835. -non No papers or letters have been received by the Harriet from Rio Janeiro, the Cape of Good Hope, and Algoa Bay; Captain Tupper has, however, communicated to us verbally the follow- ing intelligence, which he collected at the Cape :- I English Papers had been received up to the 25th October, filled with a disastrous account uf the destruction by fire of the House of Lords, and the House of Commons. The flues being over- heated is said to have been the occasion of this calamity. Both Houses closed their sittings the first week in September ; we have some reason, therefore, to question the cause of the accident, although there appears no reason for doubting the fact that both Houses are destroyed. Therecords were conveyed in safety to Somerset HouBe. Don Pedro is dead. Most disastrous accounts have reached us respecting the Cape Colony, and more especially of, the settlement at Graham's Town.

CIVIL COURT. Perth, Tuesday, March 10, 1835. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
CIVIL COURT. Perth, Tuesday, March 10, 1835. Before IV. H. Mackie, Esq., Commissioner. Daniel Scott, Agent for Mills, v. Wade.-This was an action to obtain possession of a horse which the defendant had found in the bush, and detained, on the ground that the plaintiff refused to pay the sum of £10., allowed by a Government Proclamation for the recovery of stray cattle in the bush. It appeared that the said horse belonged to Captain Mills, (who left the Colony in the Adams a few months back), and was sent to Mr. Davis's farm, on the Canning, with instructions to allnw him to range in the bush, he not being fit for use. He was accordingly left loose, and after a time disappeared from the neighbourhood of the farm. The horse had been missing two or three months, when the defendant caught him in the bush, and took him to the plaintiff, demanding at the same time the £ 10., which plaintiff refused to pay. he having posted a notice that he would only pay ¿C3, for the recovery of the horse....
WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
WEST INDIES. The long-cherished plans of the philantrophists of Europe, to elevate the slave population of these important Colonies to the rank of tillers of the soil in other parts of the world, have, we are sorry to learn from alate and authentic source, proved im- practicable. Emancipation was proclaimed on the 1st of August, and so soon as the 15th, liberty had changed to licentiousness and tumult. The following extract of a letter from a house in Liver- pool, deeply interested in the West India trade, to their correspondent here, will, we have no doubt, be interesting to our mercantile readers : "Liverpool, September 25, 1834. *' As there is a chance of this being in time for the Royal Admiral, we write to say, that accounts have, this afternoon, reached this from Demerara, announcing a total suspension of work on the part of the slaves .vt that place ; neither flogging nor entreaty would induce them to do any thing. West India produce was not to be purchased, except at a great...
MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
MAURITIUS. We have received largi packets of newspapers and other periodicals from India, the Mauritius, and the Cape. We shall furnish our readers at the earliest opportunity with everything interest- ing contained therein. We rejoice to find from the Mauritius, that the career of Mr. Jeremie is at end. This man, it will be recollected, was recalled from St. Lucie by Sir George Murray, for attempting there the same system of meddling and quackery, which he has since been enabled, under the auspices of Lord Goderich, to pursue with such frightful facility in Mauritius. Not long after his first appointment to the Attorney-Generalship of the latter island, he was sent home by the Governor at the earnest solicitation of the inhabitants ; but was again let loose upon them through the intrigues of those persons who monopolise places, pensions, and privileges in the Coiony-a monopoly which they seem to think can only be preserved to them, by representing the natives as rebels and traitors...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The, Perth Gazette." Sir,-I arrived here a few weeks ago with a small investment of Flour and Pork, which I un- derstood the Government required. I made an offer of it to them, addressing myself to D.A.C.G. Lewis. Gentlemen belonging to that department were immediately sent to examine the samples, and I was promised an answer tb my communica- tion ; but after waiting sevei al days, and my offer not being taken notice of, I considered the Go- vernment had declined my proposal. I therefore sold my Flour and Pork to an individual in Fre mantle, who, I understand, has since offered it to the Government-the very identical Flour and Pork,-which has been accepted by them, at a considerable advance upon what I offered it at. The same Flour and Pork is now about to be re-shipped on board the Jess for King George's Sound, which I would have delivered them with- out the expense of discharging, re-shipping, and freight. I conclude without making any remarks, a...

SYNEY NEWS. SHEEP. To the Editors of the Sydney Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
SYNE Y NE fF S. _ SHEEP. To the Editors of the, Sydney Herald.. ; Gentlemen,-I have read, in one of your \ate j numbers, extracts frpm the Perth Gazette, and J i regret that any expression contained in my com- munication to the President of the Agricultural' Society at Swan River, on the state of the flocks there, should ha\e given Mr. Harris annoyance. Allow me to assure that gentleman, through the medium of your columns, that it was quite unin- tentional on my part. Mr Harris's opinions on the then state of the flocks at Swan River, were given, if my recollec- tion serves me right, with much doubt as to their correctness; nor did his communication on the subject convey, in my opinion, lo the mind of the reader, a belief that he had had practical knowledge of the care and management of sheep. It was therefore better, 1 think, to say at once that he had taken an erroneous view of the disease, than merely to express a supposition that he had done so. The matter in question was of the...
ENGLISH NEWS. (From the "Liverpool Times") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
ENGLISH NEWS. (From the "Liverpool Times") The Wool Trade.-London, Thursday Eve?i ing.-The public sales of wool to which we referred in our last, were continued on Friday and Saturday. The sale on Friday consisted of 1,218 bales of Australian and Van Diemen's Land wools, and the attendance, as at the previous sales, was very numerous. The quality of these wools was good, and their condition was fine, and more uniformity was displayed in the prices realised than at any of the former sales ; the Australian fetching from 2s. 2d. to 2s. 10d., and some better» sorts from 3s. to 3s. 5^d. per lb. Van Diemen's Land wools went off at from Is. 7d. to 2s. 7d. per lb., according to the quality. The sale was con- ducted by Messrs. Simes & Co. The sale of Saturday last comprised 9 IO bales, 897 of which were Colonial, the chief prices of which were equal to those realised at the former sales. Tlie average up to the conclusion of the sales (that advertised for Monday having been put off) w...

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 14 March 1835
MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Mark Read, and George Stoner, were charged by George Rewell with having maliciously cut his &nbsp; fishing seine ; but no satisfactory evidence being adduced, the charge was dismissed. On the fol- lowing morning. David Pettit, Edward Pettit, and Henry Martin, (the eldest of whom was not more than 11 years of age,) were, in consequence of information elicited in the meantime from Martin, brought up, as the real perpetrators of the above act of malicious injury ; which, after mutual ex- amination, they fully confessed. Martin and the elder Pettit were, with the assent of the parents, ordered to receive a dozen lashes each ; which they immediately underwent, in the Jail yard, from the hands, of a constable. The prosecutor expressed a hope that the case would be made public, to ex- onerate Read and Stoner from all suspicion of the offence, which he had mistakenly at first imputed to them.
