In the boat was a pleasant looking countryman, of the better sort of farmer, dressed in a light colored siugle-breasted coatee, white duck trowsers, and striped waistcoat-appearing in a»e, to be be- tween thirtv and forty, and of unreserved, sociable manners.

Swan River.     Our readers are fully in possession of the true nature of the Settlement at Swan River, according to the information im-                   parted by those who have been there, and will therefore be at once able to enter into and appreciate, the opinions enter- tained of it in England, at so late a date as June last, by a     perusal of the following extract from the Tîmes of June 6th.

The Black Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 November 1829

The Black Natives.       Mr. Editor,-I request you will allow me to correct an error in your statement of the outrages committed by the Natives in your last paper. Neither my dwelling at the Clyde nor that at the Hunting Ground was attacked. An attempt indeed was made by the Aborigines to rob a neighbouring house at the Clyde. The Natives wished to carry their object by strata- gem ; they watched the man and his servant in to dinner, and then set fire to a bush-fence, in order to draw the inmates from the house, while some of their party should slip in, and plunder the dwelling. This in part had the desired effect, and while the people stood wondering who could have made the fire, the wife suggested that it might be the Natives, and that they would rob the house during their absence. They instantly returned, and saw the Natives close to the house. An alarm was given, assistance immediately rendered, and the Natives fled ; and, although they wer...

Affectionate and Sagacious Goose. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 November 1829

Affectionate and Sagacious Goose. Mr. Burnett, Craigellachie Inn, Elgin, has a goose, nearly a,   year old, that has formed so strong an attachment towards him, as to follow him to any distance, and through the crowds and bustle of High street. A few days since the kindly animal followed him down the street, and into a hair dresser's shop, where it patiently waited until its master was shaved, after which it accompanied him on another visit into the shop of a   friend, and then proceeded home with him cheek by jowl. The goose is so well acquainted with Mr. Burnett that it really   recognises him in whatever dress he may appear. It even, knows his voice when he is not to be seen, and no sooner does he speak than it responds to him in us own unintelligible dia- lect-a dialect pretty much resembling the oratory of a Welch man when he attempts to spout with a hot potatoe in his mouth. Caution to Servants. - In June last, at Union Hall, &nbs...

Exemplary Judgment. A case or tyrannical conduct in the Master of a vessel to-   wards one of his passengers was tried in the Supreme Court at Sydney, on Tuesday, the 6th of October, before Chief Justice Forbes and two Assessors. The plaintiff, Mr. Wil- met, was a passenger, and the Defendant, Captain Thom- son, the master of the vessel., The action was brought for trespass and false imprisonment ; and the damages laid at £1000. It appeared in evidence that the defendant is mas- ter of the brig Faith, by which plaintiff came passenger to this Colony. That on the 6th July a dispute arose between them, aud defendant received an accidental wound in his breast from a knife, which plaitiff happened to have in his hand, under plea of which he put plaintiff's legs in irons, placed his wrists in   handcuffs, and stowed him away in a hole called a transom locker, which was so circumscribed, that plaintiff could scarce sit upright, or turn round.

Australian News.     By this week's post overland from Launceston, we have received Sydney Papers, the Sydney Monitor and the Austra- lian, to the 21st ultimo ; brought by the recent arrivals there from Port Jackson. The following is a summary of their contents :-     There had been no fresh arrivals from England. The Colony had been blessed with bountiful rains ; which had produced a considerable fall in the price of flour, bread,   and meat. The weather had been very favourable for plant ing maize ; and the Australian of the 9th of October says, " let the worst come to the worst, settlers now expect to reap half a crop at all events, and probably more.
