MAGISTRATES COURT—PERTH. Tuesdny, January 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 January 1836

MAGISTRATES COURT-PERTH. Tuesday, January 12. Assault.-Hon. Peter Brown, Esq., Colonial Secretary, laid an information and complaint before the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom and Capt. Whitfield, against Mr. Shaw, of the Upper Swan, for wilfully assaulting him in the public street. It appeared that the complainant was on his way to the resi- dence of the Commissioner of the Civil Court, where he was summoned to meet Mr. Shaw, touch- ing a cause now pending between them in the said Court, and to be tried on Friday next. Opposite Mr. Habgood's house the complainant overtook W. H. Mackie, Esq, Commissioner, and Mr.Shaw, and, not supposing there was any personal ani- mosity, asked the latter how he did ; when he im- mediately turned round and called the complainant a blackguard, and used other abusive language, at the same time shaking a stick over him in a threat- ening manner, desiring him to consider himself horsewhipped. Mr. Mackie interposed, and in- sisted upon the defendant pleding his wor...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 January 1836

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." Sir,-In reply to a letter in your last number, signed "A Traveller," respecting the Fremantle   Ferry, I beg to say, that the Horse-Boat has not been worked across the River but twice by three little boy's without the assistance of a man and that was once with Mr Stokes, and once with Mr. W.N.Clark-and the Traveller cannot prove to   the contrary. I presume I am the best judge   which side of the River the Boats should be kept for the accommodation of the public. As to the   Boats being kept on the Perth side, as he has státed, if the said Traveller crosses the Ferry   frequently, he must be well aware, on his coming down from Perth, he has always to wait for the       Boat to fetch him, which I think is sufficient proof that the Traveller has not confined himself exactly to truth. For the accommodation of the said Traveller, a...

ENGLISH NEWS. AUGUST 23, 1835. MUNICIPAL REFORM BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 January 1836

ENGLISH NEWS. AUGUST 23, 1835. ———00———   MUNICIPAL REFORM BILL. The great topic that occupies the country at this moment is the course adopted by the House of Peers on the Municipal Reform Bill, and its probable consequences. The same vaticinations that apply to that bill will equally apply to the other two great measures now in progress. Since the Lords have risked so much in defence of the corporations, it is certain that they will not desert .thii church. In order to exhibit more clearly the spirit of the changes which their lordships have made in the bill as it was sent up from the Com- mons, we will, as briefly as we can, recapitulate their amendments. Ttieir lordships have expunged those parts of ihe preamble that declared the abuses that prevailed ¡n corporate bodies, and their inadequacy as instru- ments of local government to meet the altered circumstances of the time They have obliterated the clauses which allowed persons omitting to claim to berated, and the...

HALLEY'S COMET. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 January 1836

HALLEY'S COMET.   Anxious to obtain correct information respect- ing the situation and appearance of the Comet, we made application to a gentleman of great scientific acquirements, on the subject, and he has obliged us with the following communication :- "The comet is now visible in the sun's rays ; it   passed over the orbit of the earth on the 12th in- stant, at a distance of about one-tenth of the earth's distance from the sun. About the 20th instant, it will again become visible in the north-west, after sunset. On November 17th, it will be in perihe- lion, or in that part of its orbit nearest the sun, after which it will shine with its greatest bright- ness. It will again become invisible in the sun's rays about the 25th November, and about the 23d December it will become visible in the morning   before sunrise, and until the middle of March, 1836, when it will finally disappear. It is expected to be   visible every morning unt...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1836 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 January 1836

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1836 It has been a subject of remark of late, that the quantity of spirits imported has materially increased ; but the con- sumption not keeping pace with the extra-ordinary supplies we perceive a large quantity will be sent to Sydney by the Giraffe. To enumerate the gallons of wine, brandy, rum and gin, received   by the late arrivals, would stagger the senses of the most sober-minded. Whe- ther the re-shipment of these spirits has arisen from an over-glutted market; or a return to a sense of the pernicious conse- quences of grog-drinking on the part of our consumers, we will not pretend to   advance, for, observing the number of public houses licensed in Perth and Fremantle at the recent annual meeting of the Licensing Magistrates, we cannot indulge the hope that it arises from the latter cause. In the township of Perth, consisting of a population of upwards of 600, without including the military, ther...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY. JANUARY 30, 1836 On the return of the Jury to deliver their verdict in the action Brown versus Shaw, the Commissioner expressed himself with much warmth, on a report which had reached him, that two hours before their appearance in Court it was j publicly rumoured, and, indeed, reported , to bim, the numbei who differed in ' opinion as to the amount of damages to be returned. The report had reached him in .so vague a manner, he observed, : that he couhi not visit upon any parlies ' the punishment he should feel it his duty to infijct, could he trace St to its source ; and such was the high sense oi the im- portance he attached to the duty of a j Juror, that were it his own br. ther, he j would vifcit such conduct with the utmost j severity of puhishment the law allowed.!

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 January 1836

VARIETIES. Convent of Cats at Aleppo.-* Having left an introductory letter at the Roman Catholic convent for the superior, who was asleep, I visiled an institution of asimilar description for cats-except that celibacy and sexual separation form no part of a their statutes. It was near to the former, and the fights and flirtations of this feline community were a scandal in the eyes «f the good Franciscans, who were said to consider the cats most lax in their discipline. 'I hey had amount- ed to 500, but the plague in the previous year had reduced their number to 200. -This order was en- dowed by some pious Mussulman, and an old mosque with its court has been given up to their use. So liberal are the provisions of the endow1 ment, that cats, whether of the Mohammedan or Christian education, are equally entitled to admis- sion; neither are the benefits- confined to worn-out or broken-down« cats; but any one who has a favorite cat, or a eat that steals creanv or any dvnig person wishing...

MAGISTRATE'S COURT—PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 January 1836

MAGISTRATE'S COURT--Perth. William Rewell, ten years of age, William Stokes, seven years, and Wm. Higgins, seven years, were charged be- fore the sitting Magistrates, with stealing   melons from the garden of Mr. Walters, at Perth. William Rewell confessed,   that as he was going home from school   he met with his two companions, who   said they were going into Mr. Walters's   garden, to take some melons, but he re-   fused. He stood outside, and they took   two, and they all three went into the     bush afterwards to eat them. William   Stokes gave another version to the story : --it was Rewell, he said, who told them to go in and take the melons, and he would give them some twine. Rewell did give some twine for the part of the melon he had. The twine was for his (Stokes's) brother's kite. William Hig- gins said that Stokes's version was the true one. Ea...

CIVIL COURT—SPECIAL SITTING. Perth, January 23, 1836. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq, Commissioner. P. BROWN V. SHAW. MR. LAURENCE appeared on the part of the plaintiff, and Mr. CLARK. on the part of the de- fendant. This was an application to the Equitable Jurisdiction of the Court, to set aside the delinea- tion of a boundary line previously assigned from the Surveyor General's Office, between the adjoin- ling locations of the parties ; such delineation hav- ing been made in the nature of an award by cer-     tain referees, mutually appointed by the parties for   that purpose. The application was grounded on   an alleged mistake of the referees through which they had marked out the boundary, in dispute, in a direction deviating so much from the prescribed and intended line, aligned by the Government and specified by the parties themselves to the referees, as greatly to diminish the size and other- wise affect the value of the plaintiff...
