The "Merope," from England. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 May 1849

te The Merope," from England. This long expected colonial vessel arri- ved on Saturday afternoon, after having been near to Rottnest but unable to get in for the space of three weeks, to which, added to a detention of nearly two months in the channel from contrary winds, may be attributed her unusually protracted voyage. She brings an addition of twenty to our population, and one passenger un- fortunately died on the passage, we believe from the effects of a stroke of the sun at St. Jago, which was the only place touched at since she left England. Private letters received by this oppor- tunity, mention that Mr. Hutt was exert- ing himself to procure emigration to this colony; it appears from that gentleman that the settlers may obtain as many Pcn tonville men and Parkhurst boys as they think proper, and probably that some pa- rishes may seek to relieve themselves by shipping off to us the contents of their poor-houses, of which class are the girls and boys per Merope. Manifest of th...

The Blue Book for 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 May 1849

The Blue Book for 1848. From the above source we gain the fol- lowing information relative to the state of the colony in the past year, which we think well worthy of being placed before the public, more especially as it serves to shew that however much settlers have been dis- satisfied and grumbling, there is no just reason for their so doing ; on the contrary these returns shew that in no year since the foundation of the settlement, has the account of revenue, or imports and exports, ever equalled or even approached that of the last. The Revenue was £10,492 13s. lid., all expended in the colony, as were also the following amounts :-Parliamentary Grant £7,419 8s. 3d., Juvenile Immigrants £277 Is. 7d., Commissariat £10,501 12s. 6d. being a total of public expenditure for the year of £28.689 16s. 3d. The Imports were as follows : Apparel and Slops. Apothecaries' Wares Bran and Pollard . Bags and Sacks . Brooms and Brushes Butter and Cheese. Beer and Ale. Boots and Shoes . Books and St...

Central Germany. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 May 1849

Central Germany. . Our Frankfort letter of the 23rd De- cember, says the Times, states that a diffe- rence of opinion between the King of Prus- sia and his Cabinet on the subject of Aus- trian influence in Germany, will probably induce the resignation of the Bradenburg Ministry in favor of Baron Yon Vincke. The Prussian government has authorised the Chevalier Bunsen to accept the office of negociator on the Danish question of- fered him by the Central Executive. Public attention is at present occupied at Frankfort with the disposal of the minor principalities of Germany, the negotiations respecting whose ultimate destiny are be- ing carried on very energetically. FBANKFOBT, DEC. 22-It is positively announced that the Hanoverian govern- ment has declared its unwillingness to put in force the fundamental laws before the whole constitution of the empire is com- pleted.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 May 1849

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. 1 VoxpopuU, vox Dei." WE peceive by our advertising columns, the Government have an intention of erect- ing a bridge over the Canning at the Nar- rows. However much we should like to see a good land communication established between the port and the capital, we object to the present project for several reasons : First, that there are many objects of much moro immediate importance to the commu- nity, on which the funds to be applied to this erection, might be more profitably ex- pended ; and secondly, that the proposed permanent route to the port is not judi- ciously selected. On the first ground of our objection, we may put the question to the Government, how much trafile and of what nature they expect to pass by the proposed bridge, and whether, in the present state of our com- munity, it cannot be very well done without? It is unnecessary for us to enter into any lengthened argument, to prove how little use there is at present for the proposed bridge, unle...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 May 1849

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. A most dreadful catastrophe had occur- red on board the steamer Londonderry, from Sligo to Liverpool. There were one hundred and seventy to one hundred and eighty passengers on board. A severe gale having come on, a large proportion of the passengers were put into the fore ca- bin, and the hatches fastened, when seven- ty-four persons perished from suffocation. Great excitement had been caused in England by the assassination, in his own house, of Mr. Isaac Jermy, Stanfield Hall, Norfolk, and his son, by a Mr. Hush, who had been his tenant. The assassin fired four shots from pistols loaded with several pieces of lead at Mr. Jenny, his wife, his son, and a female servant. The Messrs. Jermy were killed, and Mrs. Jermy and the servant severely wounded. There had been disputes between the parties regard- ing the purchase of a property and the foreclosure of a mortgage. Rush was masked and cloaked when he committed the murders, but the evidence against him was very concl...

The Legislative Council. Thursday, April 26, 1849. Kot having been presont ourselves, we copy the proceedings of this day from our contemporary. 11th and 12th Order-Naturalization. Passed second reading ; to be read a third time 9th May. 13th Order-Pilotage and Light Dues. His Excellency observed that an opinion prevailed in the colony, that making ships pay pilotage dues deterred them from cal- ling at our port ; and we had adopted the example of South Australia, where the same idea prevailed, in removing these charges. He knew no other places where the pilot's services were rendered gratuit- ously. The free port of St. Thomas had been cited, but St. Thomas possessed an open roadstead, and a pilot was not wanted. In all other ports, free or otherwise, where a pilot was employed, his services were paid for. He thought the old scale of dues too high, and had therefore modified them. For the last three years, during which no pilotage was demanded, the number of vessels coming in here ...

Mr. Kennedy's Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 May 1849

Mr. Kennedy's Expedition. Out of a party of thirteen only three have survived, the head of the party having been most barbarously murdered by the aborigines. We need not state that the public feel this catastrophe with the utmost sorrow, it being indeed a public calamity. Mr. Kennedy was an experienced explorer, having been with Sir Thomas Mitchell in his last expedition to the interior, and having again pursued the same expedition by himself, to a considerable distance be- yond the spot where the Surveyor-General had finished, and discovered that in rela- tion to the Victoria River, which was sup- posed to flow into the Gulf of Carpentaria, a mistake had been made, and that the Victoria lost itself in a marshy flat. Upon his return from this expedition he was sent to Cape York, at the head of a party consisting of twelve men, viz :-Mr. J. C. Blackett, Mr. E. Bigge, Mr. A Johnson, Mr. T. Wall, Mr. W. Carron, Mr. C Nib- lett, James Luff, Edward Taylor, William   Costigan...

Late European Intelligence. (From the "Home News" Jan. 8.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 May 1849

Late European Intelligence. (From the ''Home News" Jan. 8.) There ia a deep swell in the water, after the political storm in Europe, and signs of wreck are seen on every side. "War is still imminent between Denmark and the Du- chies, and perhaps Germany and Denmark, on the old plea of German interest in them. The King of Denmark has not scrupled to declare to the people of Schleswig-Holstien that the armistice with Prussia having been violated, he does not consider his subjects in Schleswig at all bound to support or obey the existing government by whom the violation has been committed. He talks of redressing these abuses by negotiation ; but the promised impunity for resistance to the local government is more likely to promote an appeal to arms. The Emperor of E-ussia is about to in- terfere actively in the Italian question. In Borne on the appeal of the Pope ; in the two Sicilies at the solicitation of King ferdinand ; in Lombard on the demand of Austria. He will exert a voice pot...

The latter had shown no disposition to adhere to the terms of the treaty respecting the opening the city of Canton to foreigners. A large fleet of ÏÏ.M. navy were being assembled.
