The only defence he could aduce, was that he never ill treated her when sober, and when drunk he did not know what he did.

(From the "Sydney Herald.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 October 1833
(From the " Sydney Herald") Our present interest is to procure con- sumers of Colonial commodities, and such a num ber of useful mechanics as shall supply our own wants, by Colonial manufactures. For this pur- pose, every man disposed or qualified to occupy ground, should be invited to do so, by every in- dulgence that a liberal Government can b«stovv. We follow the opposite extreme in withholding all land from setllerb except by purchase, which it Í3 unreasonable to think they should all be able to effect. They might readily pay five times the | amount of their farm by their industry in a few ] ) ears, as in America, but it is beyond their power to do this in three months, before a plough has thrust into their ground, or a cabin reared in which they may lay their heads. If the Home Govern- ment could be induced to cause an alteration in this respect, it would render the sale-of-laud sys- tem more palatable to the poorer Colonists than it is at present. Our readers are fully aware, ...
CIVIL COURT, Before G. F. Moore, Esq., Civil Commissioner. PERTH, 8, 9, & 10 OF OCTOBER, 1833, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 October 1833
CIVIL COURT, Before G. F. Moore, Esq., Civil Commissioner. PERTH, 8, 9, & 10 OP OCTOBEiï, 1S33, The cases before the Court this sitting, ivolving principally matters of account, occupied the Com- missioner four days. As nothing of public inte- rest occurred, we have not considered it necessary to occupy our space with the dry detail of Dr. and Cr's. accounts, we therefore merely give a sketch of the Proceedings. Lyon v. Steel.-This was an action to recover Damages, which were laid at 500Z., for a slander of title to an Estate on the Swan River. Mr. Clark conducted the case for the plaintiff, whose title being fully established on an agreement designated " the duck and geese agreement," re- ceived compensation in Damages to the amount of SOL Lewiv, by G. Leake, v. Lewis.-This was a complaint that the Defendant is indebted to the Plaintiff his brother, at Hobart Town, in the sum of £1924. Ils. 5d., for goods sold and delivered, and the balance of account. Mr. Clark, for the pl...

FOUND. A ONE POUND NOTE. Application to be made at this Office. FOUND, A Coffee Pot, a Saucepan, and drudg- ing box. The owner, by giving a satis- factory description of the property, and paying the expences of this advertise- ment, may recover the articles on appli- cation to CHARLES FARMER, Perth. Tne awful mortality amongst the child- ren of the British soldiers on the Madras side of India, has at length been brought officially under the notice of the authorities, and there is but little doubt, that on examination of the records, it will be found that the lower provinces of Bengal are by no means less prejudicial than the Sister Presi- dency, to the those unfortunate Europeans, who are attempted to be brought up in this country to maturity. England imports into this country a large portion of her army for the defence of her Indian possessions, and the Local Government have continued to hold out strong inducements to European marriages amongst the soldiers, repress- ing at the sam...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 October 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL Onr files of the Van Diemen's Land Journals have not come to hand WE have delayed going to press until the latest moment, in the expectation, that we should receive further intelligence by the Freak ; the following is the only authentic information we can arrive at : Captain Sir Richard SPENCER, K. C. H. R. N., had arrived at King George's Sound in the transport Buffalo, with the appointment oí Government-Resi- dent, and a salary of £100.,-not 1000/. as erroneously stated. Sir James STIRLING, when the Go- vernor Stirling sailed from England in May, was expected to take his departure for this port, via King George's Sound, in July ; he therefore may be expected here about the end of January. In the absence of official documents from home, the Government despatches having been detained at King George's Sound, to be forwarded by another op- portunity, we abstain from making any general remarks upon the intelligence we have received ; to relieve the public...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 October 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL A vessel arrived in Gages Roads this morning ; the anxiety which universally prevails, beyond precedent, for news from England, induced us to keep our columns open until the latest moment, consistent with the arrangements we have made for forwarding our Journal by Saturday's post, we regret however that we are un- der the necessity of going to press another week without having it in our power to "relieve those around us, from the dream- ing existence, into which they are lulled, by the uncertainty regarding the measures which are to be adopted to forward and extend this Territory. Struggling as we are still compelled to do with all the inconveniences and difficulties attending a confined circu- lating medium, it is by no means a mat- ter of surprise, that the minds of those who have directed their attention to the subject, should at this moment be excited to relieve us from onr immediate exigen- cies, and to give an impetus & security to our fu...
PUBLIC SALE OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 October 1833
PUBLIC SALE OF STOCK. A Public Sale of Stock, recently imported by Captain Taylor, per the Helen, from Sydney, &nbsp; took place at Perth on Tuesday last, pursuant to &nbsp; advertisement. Notwithstanding the Sale appear- ed to be attended by a fair sprinkling of purchasers, but few sales were effected. One pair of bullocks was sold for £36., and we believe £12. per head was offered for the remainder, but was re- fused. Our market, from the scarcity of money,-it is idle to deny the fact, is at present very circum- scribed, and unless terms of accommodation are offered, it is utterly useless to force sales. How- ever desirable the acquisition of stock may be, and however great the positive advantages are, which present themselves to our view, still the greater part of our agriculturists are forcedly necessity, and not their will, to hold back until the prices are re- duced to such a level as will afford an equable re- turn to the importer, without oppressing the pur- ...

EMIGRATION. CAPITALISTS of L300. and up- wards, Agriculturists, Artisans, Me- chanics, and others, who may be dis- posed to emigrate, and who have the &nbsp; means of paying the cost of their passage, are invited to an attentive perusal of the following Report of the Committee of Management of the So~ cial Emigrants, and to unite with them in establishing an extensive Settle- ment in the District of KING GEORGE'S SOUND, WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The district of King George's Sound (which has been aptly described as the Italy of Australia, from, the equable temperature of its climate) is situate near the south western extremity of Australia; it possesses local and other advantages, which mark it out as one of the most desirable portions of the habitable Globe for Colonization, and is likely to become, in a short period, a flourishing Commer- cial and Agricultural country ; but its chief riches will consist in its flocks and its herds, for which there is abundance of pasture.
