The adjourned sitting of the Perth Local Court was resumed at half-past two o'clock yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, when the case of the Perth Foundry Co. v. A. Cham berlain was resumed, and resulted in judg ment being given in favour of the plaintiffs for the charge made for supplying defen dant with a pair of buggy wheels, with costs. C. Gallop sued J. Stewart (of the Governor. Broome Hotel) for .£6 2s. 7d., the price of a bag of potatoes and three cases of fruit supplied. ,.The defendant called two witnesses who had helped to take the goods out of the cart, and who swore positively that only two cases of fruit were delivered. On the other hand Mr. .Gallop swore he sent three, produced his account book showing that threo cases were entered, and called his carter, who deposed he had delivered the three cases at the hotel. His Worship held that the balance of evidence was in favour of the plaintiff, and therefore gave judgment for the amount claimed,
with cost?. The next case taken* -was that of Messrs. Bowers & McGrath v. Messrs. W. Gray & E. Mansfield, in which the plaintiffs sued the ? defendants for £-5 8i., the value of 15 yds. of cap stone which they alleged the defendants had im properly taken from their stack of ; stoh'e on the William-street jetty. Mr. J..F. Harper appeared for the plaintiffs and Mr. Buruside for thedefeildants. The dispute between the parties appeared to be a mo8t involved one, and the ease for; the plaintiffs had not been concluded when the. Court rose at five o'clock. Shortly after ten o'clock this morning the hearing of the above case was resumed. A large number
or witnesses were called en eitner siae, but the case was utterly devoid of interest to the general public. The hearing lasted until about a quarter past; noon, when Mr. Leake, after summing up the conflicting evidence in the most exhaustive and im partial manuer, gave judgment against the defendants with costs. The case of J. Sands v. .T.Hillman, to recover JB5 5s. as price of '?I'Em^Hfew Atlas of Australia,' was just opan*edrwhen the Court adjourned for lunch. W. Sandover has just received a large consignment of the finest Aurora brand Kerosene. This oil is free fronv any un pleasant odour while burning and., gives a brighter light thau any other oil.
