Colonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 14 April 1849

Colonial Intelligence» NEW SOUTH WALES.     "We learn from the Sydney Morning Herald that the Underbank Estate, con- sisting of 8320 acres of land, with farm buildings, 3700 head of cattle, and 40 hor- ses, which formed the first lot in the Bank of Australia partition, was won by the holder of ticket No. 3374, who turns out to be Angus M'Donald, a tenant on the Bolwarra Estate, near Maitland. He was a very poor man, with eight children, and was recently a servant to Mr. Andrew Lang. A vessel arrived at Sydney from Tahiti, and Navigator's Islands reported that the American government had taken posses- sion of the gold field at California, and that a large number of troops had been distributed about the country. Several vessels had arrived at San Francisco from; Valparaiso and the Sandwich Islands, and were almost deserted in consequene of the extensive emigration of gold-seekers. The troops in this colony are to be still further reduced in number. ïn conse q...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 21 April 1849

ENGLISH EXTRACTS Lord Clarendon had determined upon a summary and vigorous course to prevent the revival of the Jacobin journals. There is at "Wisbeach, a room out of which nine schoolmistresses have been married in eighteen years. Mr. John Scott stated at the Limerick workhouse, that he would sooner have five hundred men under his charge than fifty women. It is said that an insurance company, in which Mr. Smith O'Brien effected an insurance on his life sixteen years ago, re- fused to receive the accruing premium. Thiá may have been a very cautious step, but its strict legality is rather questionable. Thö winter campaign against the pay- ment of rents in Ireland was about to com- mence, particularly in King's County and Mayo i Mr; Charles Lyell, the late President of the Geological society, by the desire of Prince Albert, formed one of the party at dinner in the Boyal circle at Bahnoral, and there had the honour of knighthood con- ferred on him by Her Majesty for his ser- vices in t...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. Duties of a Governor. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 21 April 1849

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. Duties of a Governor. The Governor of a colony, independently of the.vast influence he may exercise on the happiness and tranquilityof its inha- bitants-by his personal-disposition and de- portment, has higher and moro duties to discharge. As the representative of. his Sovereign ho is only called upon to secure the vicarious allegiance of the colonists, but he is bound to return, in the same capacity, that care and protection by which such allegiance is earned. Ile stands in the place of his Queen, to watch over the interests of the detached territory inte- rested to his .care, and not only to guard its frontiers and insure its security, but to regulate its external and internal life by the ablest application of judgement and discretion. In proportion as his authority is more absolute and less limited than that of the Sovereign whom he represents, so is his duty more arduous, and his respon- sibility more severe. He is the champion of his quasi-subjects, and ...

The Colonial Mails.

Latest News from America. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 21 April 1849

Latest News from America. "We have intelligence from Boston to the 21st of October. It was considered probable that the Whig interest would triumph in the re- turn of General Taylor as President, and that his administration would cultivate peace abroad and harmony at home. Some speculations were afloat as to the constitu- tion of his dabinet. It was conjectured he would choose Governor Crittenden as Secretary of State, and General Gadsden of South Carolina, as Secretary of War. General Gadsden was Adjutant-General to General Jackson, and succeeded Gene- ral Bernard as Chief of the Engineer corps of the United States, and was known to possess the confidence of (general Taylor äs to patronage. A letter from one of the mosi respectable senators of New York liad created great confidence in General Taylor, as the writer unhesitatingly stated that the honoured and lamented John Quincy Adams liad expressed sentiments favourable to his election. Upwards of 1,500 journeymen watch and clock m...

Emigration. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 21 April 1849

Bmigration. This term in common acceptation, has hithertoo been applied in these colonies almost exclusively to those who leave the mother country under the auspices of her Majesty's Land and Emigration Commis bioners, or under some Bounty System comprising free passages for eligible per- sons of the industrious classes ; but now that numerous persons in the middle and upper walks of life are again beginning to take the lead in such peaceful but energe- tic and patriotic movements, "coloniza- tion " is the term applied to the combi- nation of eftbrt. From " An Earnest Plea for Ireland, by an Englishman," published by Ollivier, of Pall Mall, we extract the following proof of the now prevalent im- pression in all parts of the United King- dom, that it has become necessary not only to promote more extensive emigration but to colonise on a large scale : " If we cast a glance over our colonial possessions,, their immensity is no less striking tiran the diversity of their cli- mates,-prod...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 21 April 1849

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuili, vox Dei." SAT^DAY^APRnTlaïTÎSég. The address of His Excellency on the occasion of the opening of the present ses- sion of the Legislative Council, which we give in another column, will gain for him fresh reliance upon his exerting the utmost to promote the real well doing of the co- lony. It is like himself, bold, open, and energetic, and was delivered in a charac- teristic bold and decisive style, very unlike what the colonists of "Western Australia have hithertoo been accustomed to. There is not in the whole address one single sen tencewhich, we are confident, will not meet with the warmest concurrence of the set- tlers-not one opinion offered which will not find adherents in all who .wish well to this colony-not any one statement of what has been done since His Excellency assumed the reins of government, which will not meet the hearty approval of all. Colonists may be querulous at times, but it is impossible for them not to think well of a g...

The New French Constitution. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 21 April 1849

The New French Con»tittrtiotn The French Constitution is completed. On Saturday last the Assembly voted the 115th article of the iww code, and the en- semble of the entire fabric was then sub- jected to the conclusive test of a ballot amidst a finale of shouts, acclamations, and rejoicings. Seven hundred and thirty-nine members against thirty recorded, in behalf of their constituents, their cordial accept- ance of the conditions intended to regulate hereafter the political rights, the social duties, and the personal privileges of 35, 000,000 Frenchmen. To conjecture how the Constitution may work is beyond the power of man ; but to presume that the experiment will be a brief one is no more than is warranted by the lessons of expe- rience, seeing that this last Constitution of the 4th of November, 1848, is precisely the twenty-second-reckoning the-extern-' porized codes of provisional committees which has been taken on trial since the . inaugural year 1789. "Sixty go true; three go as...
