HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 April 1836

HOBART TOWN. Arbitration.-An association is on the eve of being formed at Sydney, upon a principle said to exist in the United States, which, if brought to maturity, will play the very deuce among the lawyers». A considerable number of respectable individuals have determined io subscribe a trifling sum per annum; for-the purpose of defraying the expenses of a voluntary court established amoi g themselves, to whom all litigations in matters of disput- ed accounts, &c. are to be submitted for adjustment-the subscribers binding themselves in a heavy penalty to abide by their decision. The names of the jurors are to be drawn promiscuously from those of the whole number of subscribers, six being taken by each party. The consequence will be, that trifling suits which now cost those con- cerned 60/. or more, in law, before they can be decided, will not cost, under this plan, more than as many shillings. " Although good workmen, generally speaking, are more likely to meet with emplo...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 April 1836

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The Bardaster has supplied us with English news up to the 15th of September. Parliament, after an unusually stormy session, was prorogued by the King in person on the 10th, the Com- mons having, after a long discussion and a con- ference, agreed to the amendments which the Lords had made in the important measure of the Corporation Reform Bill. Hie most interesting part of the proceedings since the last arrival to us is, however, the report of the Committee of the House of Commons which was ordered on the 30th of July last, to inquire into the conduct of General Darling while Governor of New South Wales. The Report is dated the lit Sept., and is as follows : "The Select Committee appointed to inquire into the conduct of General Darling, while Go- vernor of New South Wales, particularly with reference to the grants of crown lands made by him, his treatment of the Public Press, the case of Captain Robison, and the New South Wales Veteran Companies, and the alleged ins...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL.

By the "Maria" from Launceston, we have' received, files of the Launceston and Hobart Towri journals up to the 6th of February last, from which we h/ive col- lected some few extracts of general in- terest.

Many of us are parents and heads of families, and we incur an awful responsibility, for which we must hereafter account, if we neglect our duty in endeavouring to provide for those families the means of attending a place of public worship; the best räjglous instruction ; and suitable education for the rising generation We have all witnessed, and regretted, the demoralizing effects arising from the w_dht of public worship ; the Sabbath, in many cases, is unobserved ; and of those who ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 April 1836

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COLONY. The following extract from the Westminster Review displays very clearly the sort of repute in which the project of the South Australian Colony is held by the public. Colonel Napier was named Governor of the unborn Colony, and he appears to look upon the whole affair as little better than a joke : " In none of the publications of the authors of the Australian project, have the ways and means of raising a revenue to maintain the new colony been discussed or even touched upon, save in that of Colonel Napier, who can hardly be said to belong to them, and who suggests a graduated poll-tax. The subject was a ticklish and alarming one, and the projectors have no doubt exhibited the better part of valour in escaping from it. There is to be raised on bond a sum of 200,000/., at an interest not exceeding ten per cent. Fifty thousand pounds are to be raised for carrying on poor emi- grants, and the larger sum is to be raised on the interest of the Colonial revenue ; th...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. SETTLEMENT AT PORT PHILIP (From the Van Diemen's Land Monthly Magazine.) We are favored with the following extract from a letter addressed by Mr. Wedge, late- of our Survey Department, to Mr. Frankland, Surveyor General. Mr. Wedge has lately returned here, it will be seen, from the proposed new settlement at Port Philip ; and his letter is dated near Launces- ton, 17th October, 1835; "My intercourse with the natives was full of interest, and I was highly gratified with the pro- spect of a permanent friendly footing being estab- lished, through the means of a treaty accomplish- ed by Mr. Batman in June last. Up to the mo- ment of my coming away, their confidence in us had gradually strengthened ; and they expressed a strong desire that I should shortly return to them. Notwithstanding this feeling, the greatest tact on our part will be requisite, and one false step may undo all that has been done,. Those upon whom it will devolve to manage the intercourse, must be p...
