The Earthquakes in New Zealand The Local Government has received a communication from that of New Zealand, respecting the late earthquakes in that Is- land, and requesting publicity to be given to the following facts :—" That the detri- mental effects of the occurrences were con- fined almost entirely to damage done to the brick buildings and erections in Wel- lington, which formed a very small pro- portion of the whole—that all traces of these effects are already fast disappearing, and will soon be hardly discernable—that public confidence is again restored—and that all commercial and other operations have long since been resumed and carried on with their usual activity."

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 April 1849

Miscellanea. A NEW GHOST STOBT.-I was one night sleeping at a friend's house. All the family had retired to rest, and I have no doubt that a perfect stillness prevailed aruund. Suddenly a noise, like thunder, startled me from my slumbers, and, as soon as I was able to collect my scattered thoughts, I distinctly heard a series of vio bnt blows against a door at the foot of ihe staircase leading up to my bedroom. Though the first impression might have been that the disturbance was caused by theives breaking into the house, it appear- ed improbable that such characters would make their approach with so much clamour. 1 ¡instantly leaped out of bed, and arrived in time to see a sight- which 1 shall never ' forget. The owner of the house, who slept on the ground-floor, equally astoni- shed with myself at the noise, had also quitted his pillow, and arming himself with a sword and taper,' advanced towards the door, against which the monotonous thumping still 'continued at regular inter} val...

Why cannot the Colonial Office do much for Colonisation. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 April 1849

Why cannot the Colonial Office do much for Colonisation. One answer to this important question is thus given by J. A. Jackson, Esq., is an extremely valuable pamplet he has just published, entitled " National Emigration considered chiefly with regard to the Aus- tralian Colonies/' Mr. Jackson, who is an active member of the Colonisation So- ciety, and has had unusual opportunities of witnessing the progress of colonisation in the countries to which his excellent and well-timed little publication, refers, says : -" At the same time there is this to be said, in candour, of the present, as of any ' present government ;' the men who are charged with administering the affairs of this great nation, have, in the mere daily routine of their existing duties, sufficient to consume all the time and sttention which can be afforded by ordinary minds and bodies to the service of the public. In particular, our Colonial Secretary of State is already saddled with duties wdiich must preclude the volu...

Collector of Eov. W. H. Mackie, Esq. G. Leake, Esq. S. Moore, Esq. The order of the day was read for the second reading of the Aborigines Evidence Bill. Mr. Leake enquired of His Excellency if the bill Avas intended to apply in civil as well as criminal crises ; natives were now being extensively employed by the settlers and in case of any dispute, their wages were not recoverable in consequence of the natives' evidence being inadmissable. His Excellency considered that in that case it w@uld be unjust to confine their abi- lity to give evidence to criminal cases only. The Colonial Secretary thought the bill should be made to include both civil and criminal'. His Excellency enquired Of Mr. Mackie whether an aborigine was incapable of giv- ing évidence in all civil CUSCA. Mr. Mackie replied in the nega...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 May 1849

South Australia. We have rebeived files of journals from this colony up to 7th April. The Arpenteur was to sail for this port in a few days and may shortly be expected. , The Frederick'Ruth hltd'long Bince left for the Mauritius direct. It is reported that the barque Kingston is» to call here in search of a wool freight, but we believe her early arrival is very un- certain, and let it be when it may we trust a colonial owned vessel will receive the preference over a stranger, even if there should be a slight difference in the price of freight. Mining affairs do not appear to be in the most prosperous condition, although an opportune rise had lately taken place in the home value of copper ore. A pri- vate letter says :-" The Burra is now the only mine paying its expenses. Princess Royal shares were sold the other day at ¡ßl7 10s., or something like 16s. per acre. Every branch of mining operations is pa- ralyzed, I may say, by the extreme dearth of money, which is now worth almost any...

Late European Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 May 1849

Late European Intelligence. BY the arrival of the Emma Skarratt we have received European intelligence more than one month later than our last advices, being up to the 26th December. The fol- lowing is a summary : (ToDec.lG.) Smith O'Brien, and his copartners in crime, were still in Richmond Bridewell awaiting the result of the writs of error. It was not, however, expected, that they would be allowed to escape, the opinions of tile Judges, as far as known, bein g decidedly against them. In general politics, there seems to be quite a lull, the Chartist movement in Eng- land, and the cry for rebellion in Ireland, having ceased to attract any great measure of public attention. The only fact worth recording in this connexion is, the finding of true Dills against Mr. Charles Gavan Dufly, at the Central Criminal Court, on the 14th of December. Trade was improving, and wool and cop- per were both looking up. Consols on the 15th December were 84£, that being a rise of nearly 1} per cent. "W...
