Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 May 1849
Ireland. In the Court of Queen's Bench, the 16th judgment was given in the appeal of O'Brien and others v. The Queen in error. Before eleven o' clock in the morning one of the ordinary police vans, escorted by sixteen heavy dragoons and some ten or twelve of the mounted city constabulary, proceeded at a rapid rate into the yard of the Eour Courts, where about a hundred persons had assembled to witness the de bat oí "Ireland's four last patriot's" on their last battle-field on this side of the Channel with the law officers of the Crown. Some slight exhibition of feeling took place among individuals in the small crowd, T)ut the majority of the bystanders seemed to regard the cortege much in the same way as they would have looked on a fat bull or . a prize pig. The hall of the Eour Courts was greatly croAvded, and the densest part of the miscellaneous mass was just about the entrance to the Queen's Bench, which was defended by the stout wooden barrier that has so often done duty there,...
"A few Days in the Diggins." (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 May 1849
A few Days in the Diggins." (Erom Punch.) Landed at St. Francisco, after a 'tarnal tossin of five months. This is coming through the small eend of the Horn, I reckon, and there ought to be pretty con- siderable some on the other side, to make up for leavin' my dry goods store and family fixins in Broadway. Traded with a down-easter, who is ma- kin' tracks for the settlements, with 30, 000 dollars in his cqrpet-bag, for a spade, pick, scoop, and washin'-through-givin' 800 dollars for the plunder, and glad to get it, as Increase Niles Flint, of Salem, Mass., went 750, and he is a 'tarnal old boss at a deal. Swopped my traps and blankets, a quar- ter-cask of pickled pork, and a demijohn of peach brandy, which I had laid in, for six pounds ginooine gold. Pretty consi- derable smart tradin. Toted my tools to Hiram K. Doughboy's boarding shanty, and settled with him for blankets and board at thirty dollars per diem. Catawampus prices here, that's a fact ; but everybody's got more dust tha...
Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 May 1849
Local Intelligence. We understand His Excellency has of- fered the " Geraldine " Mine Company, if they work the mine, the protection of a party of military of twenty-five men, but the proceedings of the company will de- pend upon the report on some fresh speci- mens which they have transmitted to S. Australia for assay. By the overland mail from K. G. Sound on Tuesday, we leam that the brig Arpen- teur had arrived there from S. Australia ; the barque Kingston, which has been ad- vertised here" as being ",hourly expected," nad not sailed when'-the Arpenteur left. We congratulate our fellow settlers on their again possessing an advocate of their interests in the mother country ; we allude to the Swan Uiver News, which has been revived under, we believe, the able super- intendence of Mr. Blundell, late of this colony, and, from what we know of that gentleman, we cannot doubt that the most strenuous efforts will be made to promote our advacement. Indeed from all we can learn of our pros...
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 May 1849
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The election for Vice-President of the Republic, has terminated in the favor of M. Boulay, a Btionapartist. A desire to conciliate the President no doubt influen- ced a few, and some members would pro- bably be anxious to give a living contra- diction to the increasing murmers of dis- sension between the President and the Assembly, but it is certain the majority were acted upon as were the people at the election of President. It was as much an exclusion as a preference. M. Boulay de la Meurthe was chosen to keep out M. Vivien, as too real a republican and too much the friend of Cavaignac, and M. Ba raguay'd'Hilliers, because perhaps the As- sembly thought he would add too much strength to the ministry. The proposed salary was reduced from 60,000 francs with the palace of the Little Luxembourg, to 48,000, with a mere declaration that the Vice-President shall be lodged at the pub- lic expense. The President laid the names of the three competitors before the Asse...
Late European Intelligence. (From the "Home News," Jan. 8.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 May 1849
Late European Intelligence. (From t?ie mtI£opie News" Jan. 8.) There is 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 lpeafgovernment is more likely to promote an appeal to arms. The Emperor of Eussia is about to in- terfere actively in the Italian question. In Home 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...
MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 May 1849
MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. Letters from Bayonne of the 13th Jan. announce that a body of 600 Carlists had entered Spain from the Erench frontier, and had succeeded in disarming and occu- pying several military posts. VENICE.-It is a remarkable' fact'that the only part of Europe in which the revo- lution of last spring has riot received a check or sustained a decided reverse, after having changed the form of government by a popular movement, is the city of Ve- nice or the renovated Republic of San Marco. There alone the revolutionary government has maintained itself without conniving at the grievous excesses of the democracy, and there alone, of all the re- volted States of Italy, has the energy of the whole population been successfully employed to defend the independence of the city. The conduct of the Venetians and of Manini, their democratic dictator, forms an* honorable contrast to the cow- ardice, treachery, disunion, and braggart harangues of the popular party in the resi. of Italy ; ...

'The Legislative Council. Thursday, Mail 3. The Sandal-wood toll bill was read a se- cond time. Some few observations were made by Mr. Leake, in effect similar to what passed on the previous debate. The »toll, after deducting the expense of col- lecting is to be paid over to the Collector of Revenue for the special purpose of Roads, &c. The Juvenile Immigrant's Bill passed the 2nd reading with a slight alteration at the suggestion of the Surveyor-General. The Joint Stock Banking Companies Bill was read a second time. Mr. Leake proposed au amendment in V order*to produce a more equal working of the law, with regard to shareholders liabili- ties, but the legal members being of opini- on that the amendment would be contrary to the English law and therefore disallow- ed, Mr. Leake withdrew his motion. The Central Board of Works repeal Bill was adjourned. The Police Bill was read a second time. Monday, May 7. The Juvenile Immigrant's Bill-Mr. Mackie enquired the term of apprentic...

Local Intelligence. The (Jhumpion, which sailed on Saturday ' for Angier, put back on Tuesday in con- sequence of stress of weather ; she sailed again the following day. ? ? &lt; Reports from the Company's mine at Kelmscott, state that the workmen are getting into softer stuff, the zinc is disap- pearing and its place is supplied by a sub- stance much resembling plumbago which, on exposure to the air, is stated to become encrusted with the blue oxide of copper. The Merope commenced loading for Eng- land on Tuesday, and we are gratified to be able to report that a full cargo, consist- ing principally of wool, has been secured for her, shippers preferring an immediate opportunity, even at a trifling additional cost, to the chance arrival of a vessel from S. Australia ; the whole of her cargo being ready, she will probably sail Within the month. The " hourly expected " barque Kingston has not yet made her appearance.

Stray leaves from my Note Book. LADY KILLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 May 1849
Stray leaves from my Note Book. BY KETOTTN. LADT KILLEBS. Lady Killers are a clasB of mankind who besiege every lady's affection they approach, but generally after all die bachelors. Why they are termed "lady-killers" I know not, save for the same reason that tea is termed poison, which if taken very strong may cause nausea, but which is seldom or ever attended with fatal effects, so with Lady Killers, if they "'come it very strong" they sicken their fair hearers, but seldom make any fatal inroad into their hearts. My friend Q., is a complete enthusiast in whatever he undertakes; hunting, chess, shooting, ploughing, love-making, or har- rowing, away he goes heiter skelter, as if his life depended on: the accomplishment of his object. Q. has one soft part in his mental composition, that of being devoted to the Bervice of the fair sex (I do not mean to say gallantry is a soft part in man's composition, but spooneying is), and never did gallant take' more paihs to please his ladye-love...
Submarine Telegraphic Wire. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 May 1849
Submarine Telegraphic Wire. öiiouia modern science ever succeed in its bold design to throw an electric wire across the French Channel, it is probable that the South-Eastern Company, from the proximity of their termini to the French shore, will have the honour of ac- complishing this achievement, or that at any rate theirs will be the profit of the undertaking. The experiments were made at Folkstoue harbour, under the direction of Mr. Walker, the superintendent of the South-Eastern Company's telegraphic sys- tem, and on board the Princess Clementine one of the company's fleet of steamers. Upwards of two miles of wiro were carried out in a small boat, and submerged in the sea along the mouth of the harbour and at the side of the pier. One end of the wire v»as connected with a telegraphic instru- ment on the deck of the steamer, and the other end with the telegraph wire'commu- nicating with London. The arrangements having been conraleled, about half-past twelve the telegraph was place...
Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 May 1849
Odds and Ends. WHIST.-Punches recent question "Will Louis Napoleon lead up to the King or play the deuce?" has.created a sensation over all the world ; and sather than keep the whole world waiting for an answer, Punch will give one himself:-Louis Na- poleon will not leadup to the King ; but if he should get out all the knaves, with the assistance of a few trumps, he may perhaps make the honour he now has in his hands. If, on the contrary, he tries to win by tricks, the elder hands will probably get the'game by the honours falling to their share in another deal of the cards. His best suit to rely upon at present is hearts; while his opponents are rather strong in clubs. But much depends on the next game that is played ; " for there's the rub," It has since been suggested to us, by an ingenious Liverpool friend, that Prince Louis Napoleon may not only adopt both the courses suggested in our original query, but that also before the game is up he will have to " Cut for Deal " in a fish-...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" FKÎDAY^AFÎ8TÎ8Ï9. THE labors of the Legislative Council for the present session, arc nearly brought ,-to a close, and some twenty fresh Ordi- nances added to the colonial statute book with but little of the usual display of ar- gumentative powers on the part of the , .honorable members ; whether this unusual . placidity has arisen from th» confidence which is placed in His Excellency's evident endeavors to do the best he can to promote the welfare of the colony, or whether it is from a conviction on the part of the non official members, of the utter uselesBness '' ' of'battering with their feeble force, against ' ' the, doubly defended stone wall of the Ex 1 'ecutive, weare not aware, but are rather ; inclined to believe it arises from a com- pound of both causes. Although the session has not been pro- ductive of any enactment calculated to have any striking effect in benefiting the colony, still something has been done for ' the promot...
