MAGISTRATE'S COURT—PERTH. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., and Rev. J. B. W[?]ttenoom, Justices of the Peace. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 February 1836

MAGISTRATES COURT-Perth. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., and Rev. J. B. Wit- tenoom, Justices of tile Peace. Robert Smith, a private in U.M. 21 st Regt.,' was charged before the sitting Magistrates with shooting at Mr. Lawrence Welch, a constable, with intent to kill the said Lawrence Welch. It appeared that on the afternoon of the 20th of January last the complainant skipped for' some refreshment at Dodd s Inn, at Guildford, on hi» way from the head of the Swan to Perth, and found there Mr George Smythe, and two soldiers <>f t)ie 21st Regt., named Smith and Fahey, and Henry Hill, who had all just returned from sur- veying in the Lush. After dining, they asked complainant if he woidd go,with them to Perth, and about sunset they all set out together.

India, its State and Prospects. By Edward Thornton, Esq. London, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 February 1836

India, its State arid Prospects. By Edward Thornton, Esq. London, 1835. ** From the prevalence of falsehood in legal proceedings, it will be inferred, that honesty is not in higher estimation than truth ; and accord- ing tj the most accurate and intelligent observers trick, deception, and fraud, are interwoven in al- most all trtnsactions of business lu every bar- gain, fraud is appiehended ; and it is to be feared there are few in which it is not contemplated. The consequence is, that conditions and securities are multiplied without end, and the ingenuity display- ed in devising precautions against fraud is only exceeded by the ingenuity exercised in evading them. |lf confidence is reposed, it is but too often accepted only for the purpose of abusing it. The agent or steward of a rich man endeavours to transfer as much as possible of his master's wealth to ins own coffers. He again is plundered by his subordinates ; and this is the course of procedure ti own to the lowest dependent...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 February 1836

S YD NE Y. Charactürs.-If the Members of the legal profession desired to render the administration of justice ridiculous, a more efficient method could not be adopted than one which forms a very con- spicuous feature in most of the criminal trials in our Courts,-namely, that of putting a certain class of the community into the witness box to speak on the subject of character. A very amus- ing illustration of the value of such testimony touching this peculiar subject presented itself on Tuesday last, in the case of a person who was bi ought up from the gaol, and with all due solemnity put into the box by the prisoner's coun eel, to inform the Jjry as to the very bad charac- ter of the principal witness for the prosecution in a case ol' burglary, for the purpose of shewing the Jury how little he was entitled lo credibility; it ap- peared, however, by the cross-examination of this veracious witness for the defence, that he had been originally transported to the Col ny ; that he had bee...

DISEASE IN SHEEP. Report on the Epidemic Catarrh of Influenza prevailing among Sheep in the Colony of New South Wales, in the year 1835.—By George Bennett, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 February 1836

DISEASE IN SHEEP. Report on the Epidemic Catarrh of Influenza prevailing among Sheep in the Colony of New South Wales, in the year 1835.-By George Bennett, Esq. To satisfy myself respecting the contagious nature of this disease, I determined to have an experiment tried, during my engagement in in- vestigating it among the sheep, to set the question, if possible, at rest.     On the 4th of September a healthy wether was procured from a flock not suffering from the epidemic. Some mucus was taken from a sheep labouring under the first stage of the disease, and applied to the interior of the nostrils of the healthy sheep. The next day no symptom of the malady manifested itself. On that day some of the yel- lowish discharge was taken from a sheep labouring under the second stage of the disease, and applied to the nostrils of a healthy wether. On the 6th he was,turned among the hospital flock; be re- mained in perfect health until the 8th, on which day also he ap...

TAYLOR'S LIFE OF COWPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 February 1836

TAYLOR'S LIFE OF COWPER. No profession could have been more unfit for Cowper than that of the law. His extreme modesty precluded the possibility of his being successful in his profession, though it endeared him to his friends and acquaintance. He was extremely unhappy, and well he might be; for, after leaving the solicitor's house, he lived twelve years in chambers in the Inner Temple, with nothing to do. It was said above, that Docter Nicholls encouraged his pupils in habits of indo- lence. Notwithstanding the progress which Cow- per made in his studies under this tutor, it is to be feared that this circumstance had a baneful in- fluence on the character of the poet. No fact is better attested, than that occupation is a notable preventive of insanity,-occupation either bodily or mental. Dr. Gregory, it is said, used to men- tion a farmer, in the north of Scotland, who had acquired uncommon celebrity in the treatment of the insane; and his method consisted chiefly in having them con...

T. MOORE'S MELODIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 February 1836

T: MOORES MELODIES. We insert the following beautiful verses as a specimen of a new set of songs just published by Mr. T. Moore. There are twelve of them, and we think they are among the efforts of the most grace- ful and fanciful of English lyric poets : If thuu would'st have me sing and play, As once I played and sung, First take this" time-worn lute away, And bring one freshly strung. Call back the time when Pleasure's sigh First breath'd ainonpr the strings ; And Time himself, in flitting by, Made music with his wings. Take, take the worn-out lute away, And bring one newly strung, If thou wouid'st have me sing play As OMCe I play'd and sung. But how is this, though new the lute, And shining fresh the chords, Beneath this hand they slumber mute, And speak but dreamy words. In vain I seek the soul that dwelt Within that once sweet shell, Which told so warmly what it felt, And felt-what nought could tell. Oh ask not, then, for passsions lay From lute so coldly strung ; With this I ...

AMERICA The Silk Culture.-We publish with great pleasure, the following answer of the Honorable S. M. Hopkins, to the letter of Chief Justice Spencer, on this most interesting subject. It is gratifying to see the attention of distinguished citizens turning upon a question so vastly impor- tant to our country : Geneva, May 12, 1835. To the Hon. Ambrose Spencer : Dear Sir,-The honor you have done me by associating my name with yours, in a late letter on silk and the mulberry tree, would be most fitly acknowledged by my rendering some useful ser- vice, if I were able, to the cause of public im- provement. Having, however, nothing of my own to offer, I have taken a few days, since your letter, to' gain information of the mulberry planta- tions, Which have sprung up in this neighbour- hood, in tiorisequence of the report, which, as Chairman of the Committee on Agriculture, you presented to.Congress on this subject.

Richard Smith, laborer, deposed-The second morning after the Governor's ball I saw Russell, a private in the 21st Regt, at Mason's public house. Russell got one glass for me, and another glass of spirits (I believe rum) for himself. Rus- sell gave Mistress Mason a piece of meat ; Í did hot take particular notice what meat it was. Rus- sell had the meat covered over with a cloth. I walked up with him through the barrack-ground. When Russell first went in, he said, "Mistress Mason, I have brought some meat for you."

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. WOOL. Extract of a letter written by a Merchant in London, to a Gentleman in this Colony, dated May 19, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 February 1836

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. WOOL. Extract of à letter written by a Mercluzrit in Lon- don, to a Gentleman in this Colony, dated May 19, 1835. .. , " I send you a copy of the list of prices obtained for Captain Hope's wool (I believe)-the best parcel the Colony has yet produced. It was the fine condition of this wool more than its quality that attracted attention, being very clean and full of the animal moisture, showing indisputably the high state of health of the animals yielding it; and upon whatever land they have been fed, that land is exceedingly well calculated for the purpose. The chief complaint made against the Cape wool in general ia, that it is dry and gauzy, (al- though irequently having a very fine fibre), and the latter term describes it well to my mind : place a small quantity of Cape and of Gerriian or Meri- no wool before you-the former you can blow away with a puff, not so with the latter. The true Yorkshire description bf the Cape wool is, " that it has no guts,"-that is, ...

Henry Leeder stated that Boogaberry had stolen some potatoes, and then threatened to spear .him if he complained to the proper authorities about it, and shewed his determination by putting his spear in his throwing board and pointing it to his breast. Boogaberry being made aware, by repeated shouts from the rest of the different tribes who were on the spot (for what purpose they knew not), that I had come out with the whites, had singled himself out,, with his spear fixed in his   throwing stick, desiring to know what we wanted, as he did not intend to allow himself to be tied and dragged away by the white people, without both sides being heard, and that he did not...

Would not" the better course be for the hon. member to renew the motion at an early period of next session ?
