The FitzGerald Coal Field. By the kindness of the Colonial Secre- tary, we are enabled to lay before the pub- lic Mr. Gregory's report of his examination of the coal field at the FitzGerald river : Perth, Mail 19,1849. Sin,-I have the honor to inform you of my re- turn from an examination of the country in the vicinity of Doubtful Island Bay, for the purpose of ascertaining the facilities for obtaining coal in that locality, Ilaving complied with that portion of His Ex- cellency's instructions -which required the assist- ance of\the .Colonial Schooner, I proceeded wifh Mr. II. Gregory anda native to the Gordon Inlet, and examined the estuary and river for ten miles without observing any indications of the existence of Coal 5 I did not extend my observations further as the nature of the adjacent coast precludes the landing of boats, the river not being navigable to any useful extent, and the estuary too shallow to be available for that purpose. We then continued our observations as f...

Gold Mines in England. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

Gold Mines in England. While we have American returns of gold mines in California, and mineral riches abroad, we are well pleased to find that at home parties do not lose sight of the pre- cious metal. It is well known that our metalliferous rocks and lodes yield gold and silver, although, in most instances, too minute to render them of any commercial value, and generally speaking found in the gossans. It is now some months since that attention was directed, to the produce of gold in Merionethshire ; and, although the question may be open as to whether the sovereign is obtained minus or plus the value, yet the fact has been elucidated that the mineral lodes in North Wales yield gold, a bar of which, weighing 3fts. 7 ozs., has been placed in our own hands, as the product of the Cwm-hesian Mine, near Dogelly. The mine is worked for lead, and the lode is represented to us as being " interlaced " with strings of gold. Some 61bs. or 7ibs. of the precious metal have been obtained, and the...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox popiili, vox Dei." riÏDAY^l^E^Î,'l849. THE FIRST OE JUNE.-The most memo- rable day in the annals of our colony, has again come round ; a day which many set- tlers have cause to regret, but we believe a far greater number have reason to rejoice at ; for, however as Englishmen they may fully exercise their birthright of grumbling, we very much doubt if many of our deni- zens would willingly exchange their pre- sent position in the social scale for what they were twenty years since. Twenty years since Western Australia was untrod save by the foot of the wandering savage -now the dwellings of nearly five thou- sand civilized beings are scattered over its surface, the second generation of whom are rising up among us ; twenty years ago not a furrow had been drawn or spade struck into her soil-now thousands of acres are planted with corn, and the vine, and the olive. It is impossible to look back on the past without being impressed with the truth that, consid...

The Government Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

The Government Gazette* The Govcrivment Gazette of Tuesday last contains no other fresh notice than the following report from the Superintendent of Public Works : SIR,-I beg to state, for His Excellency's infor- mation, that, in obedience to his command, I have fixed the beacon on the Pish. Kock, bearing, by compass, from Arthur's Head, south 18^ deg. west; distance two miles. This rock was at all times dangerous for small craft, navigated by strangers, coming in from the southward, being directly in their track and just under water. As the beacon is also an excellent thwart-mark for Owen's Anchorage, it wül be of great advantage, not only as a warning of the danger, but as a guide to the best part of the anchorage. I have stayed the land side of the beacon with an anchor and copper bar, which will require re- moving next summer-and I have done so to test the effects of the salt water on tho two metals, and consequent durability of each' as I am led to sup- pose, from some observati...

Commercial and Monetary History of 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

Commercial and Monetary History of 1848. The commercial and monetary events of 1847 seemed almost without precedent for violence and magnitude, but those of the twelve months just ended, although of a wholly different character, have been no less remarkable. On the 1st January, Consols were at 85. The bullion in the Bank was 12,404, 2501; the notes in circulation, 17,924,990?.; the reserve, 7,865,8307. The rate of dis- count had just been raised to 5 per cent., at which there waB no demand ; and the daily reports of failures having at last ceased, a general deadness prevailed. The account of the revenue for the twelve months ending 5th Jannary, showed a fal- ling off of 2,217,454Z. from the preceeding year. On the 26th, the discount houses reduced their rate for money at call to 3 per cent., and the Bank immediately low- ered its discount to 4 per cent., Consols meanwhile having steadily approached to 90. Throughout this and the following month, the chief points were the anxiety for...

Stray leaves from my Note Book. A TRIP TO THE WONG-AN HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

Stray leaves from my Hole Book. BY KETOUN. *A TKÏP TO THE WONG-AN HILLS. Monday, April 25, 1844. Started from Bolgarting with native Boohan, for the purpose of visiting the Wongan hills. We travelled up the Bolga! brook course, which is the main branch of the Toodyay river. About eight miles on our journey we came to some peculiar looking rocks, they were of a concrete formation, but so colored by contact with ironstone as to be perfectly red. In about fourteen miles we made the head of the Toodyay river ; the only water we had seen since leaving Bolgat was a small muddy pool. The Toodyay takes its rise from a series of small flats, whioh over- flowing in winter, form the head of its channel between two rocky hillocks. We had passed over a generally grassy country but evidently, from the presence of white gum trees, of no extent to the westward or eastward. On leaving the head of the Toodyay we steered to the northward, and travelled through about four miles of the most wretched, ba...

United States[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

United States* We have mtethgence lrom New York to the 15th December. The annual reports made to the Go- vernment by the several Officers of State are published ; they aro of commensurate length with the President's message, but of less interests. The most interesting is that of Colonel Mason, the military commandant of California, on the subject of the gold region lately discovered. For all its matter-of-fact style, this document exceeds in its wonderful statements the stories already prevalent and deemed ro- mantic. These are some of the " simple facts and occurrences" which the colonel learned on the evidence of his own eyes The small valleys that run down into the stream called Weber's Creek "aro ex- ceedingly rich, and two ounces were con- sidered an ordinary yield for a day's work.

The "Times" on Responsible Government for the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 June 1849

The "Times" on Responsible Go- vernment for the Colonies. There are not two dozen members of Parliament who know anything about the colonies, and not one dozen who care to moot their grievances in Parliament. So far the responsibility of the Colonial Office is a delusion and a fraud. But its op- pressiveness is an unfortunate reality. For this there appear only two remedies. The one is to multiply enormously the hands of the office. The other is-what Sir W. Molesworth suggested, and Mr. Hawes, in the name of the Government assented to-responsible self-government by the colonies. ' The first of these would be one of certain costliness and doubtful utility; the second of no cost, and-as far as we can see-of no danger. It would be only carrying out in our modern what we began in our older colonies ; of doing in Australia, Capeland, and Now Zealand, what used to be done in Virginia, Massachusetts, and New Eng- land, and what is now done in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Canada. It woul...

Communication with England via the Overland route. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 June 1849

Communication with England via the Overland route. An important arrangement for the fur- therance of Postal communication with England by means of the Overland route, has lately been made by the local govern- ment. Previous to the sailing of the brig Arpenteur for Batavia and Singapore, Mr. G. Shenton addressed a letter to the go- vernment, offering, on that vessel's return voyage, to obtain and land, either at Rott- nest or King George's Sound, such mails as may be laying at Singapore or Angier for this colony ; in the former case for the sum of £15, and the latter for £10. It will be seen by the subjoined reply, that the local government readily acceded to the offer, and also intimated their willing- ness to allow the same remuneration to the master of any other vessel performing the same service :- Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth, May 30th, 1849. SIR.-In reply to your letter of this day's date, offering on the part of Mr. Owen, of the Arpenteur, to bring down the Overland Mail...

THE POPE IN A CONCLAVE.—RECEPTION OF A NEW CARDINAL. (From Whiteside's Italy.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 June 1849

THE POPE IN A CONCLAVE.- EX- CEPTION OP A NEW CAEDINAL. (From Whiteside1 s Italy.) It is very amusing, because novel, to stand near the door of the grand chapel, and look at the cardinals as they enter one by one at short intervals, accompanied by a chap- lain in full black clerical costume, followed by an attendant in russet brown, with a bag, and their footmen in bright liveries, whose coats hang loosely on their should- ers, as if they were made for their grand- fathers. The party draw up in the outer hall to settle the tail of his eminence, the bag is opened, robe taken out and adjusted, and let down so as to sweep the ground in a long graceful train. The dress of a car- dinal on such state occasions is not only rich and splendid, but peculiarly elegant and becoming. The colors on certain fes- tivals vary; red, purple, white. Some- times during a religious ceremony the tip- pet is removed and laid aside ; why, I ne- ver could find out. This I would regret, as it looks beautiful ...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. From the January Papers. Personal and Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 June 1849

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. From the January Papers. mm - Personal and Miscellaneous. GÜIZOT.-M. Guizot has written, in London, a work entitled "De la Démocra- tie en France;" which is announced for publication in Paris next month. THE CONVICT MITCHELL.-The total amount (on paper) of subscriptions raised for the wife and family of Mr. John Mit- chell, amounted to something under 2000Z. -no wonderful stretch of munificence, considering that the man did make sacri- fices, although in a bad cause, and for a worse object. But of this sum, the total actually received by Mr. Richard O'Gor man, sen., the treasurer of the fund, and transmitted by him to Mrs. Mitchel, very little exceeded £900. The New Orleans journals report a sin- gular incident. A rumour spread that some Irish detectives had arrived in that I city. On this a mob of Irish assembled, 1 seized three men who were landing from the ship, and beat one of them until he was insensible. The others escaped. Irish sympathy in New York has...
