Extraordinary Railway Mail Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 June 1849
Extraordinary Railway Mail Rob- bery. The up-mail leaving Plymouth at 6 35 P.M., and Exeter at 9 P.M., on Monday, January 1, arrived at Bridgewater at its usual hour-half-past IO o'clock. At this station various bags of letters which had accumulated in the Post-office van during the trip were, in accordance with the usual custom of the guard, placed in a tender immediately at the rear of the Post-office, and securely locked up. The train, which, iu addition to the Post-office and tender, consisted of about six or seven first and second class carriages, left Bridgewater in due course, and proceeded on its journey to Bristol, the run between these two places being timed to occupy one hour and ten minutes without stoppage at any sta- tion. On the arrival of the train at Bris- tol shortly before nidnight, the guard went to the tender in the rear of the Post-office in order to deliver the Bristol bags, when to his astonishment and dismay, he disco- vered that all the bags had been more o...

The Native Press of India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 June 1849
The Native Press of India. At a recent meeting of the Eoyal Asia- tic Society, Professor Wilson read a paper relative to the progress which has been made of late years by that portion of the native Indian printing press which is en- tirely unconnected with Europeans, either as writers or patrons. He observed that the establishment of a press in Bengal was a circumstance of so old a date that it was now universally known, though the public was scarcely aware to what extent its ope- ration had been multiplied. He would merely say that in the city of Çalout|ta five newspapers 'were printed in Persian or Hindustani, nine in the Bengali language, and two in English-edited by natives; and that editions of "Menu," of the "Bha gavat," and of other celebrated works, as well as a host of smaller and less respect- able publications in the Bengali language, had been produced there as private specu- lations. One of the strongest instances of the absence of prejudice in India, was the issue of Hi...
The Punjaub. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 June 1849
The Punjaub. The intelligence from India has lately assumed so uncertain and indecisive a character, that we shall probably be doing a service to our readers by explaining the position to which affairs have been brought in that quarter, and thus elucidating the various contingencies to which we may be liable. Protracted and tedious as the struggle may appear, there is in reality but little room for misgiving^and scarcely any real ground for perplexity. The political settlement of the Punjaub was originally arranged as follows :-A na- tive administration, superintended and controlled by a British Resident, was sup- ported in its authority by a strong British garrison at Lahore. A portion of the Sikh army was disbanded, and the remain- der was distributed, as judiciously as pos- sible, on the north-west frontier and in the various provinces. Upwards of 30,000 men were thus retained in the service, leaving about half that number to seek their fortunes after some other fashion. It will ...

Ærostatics. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849
ÏErostatics. The earth and the water having now been mastered by man, his efforts seem directed to the dominion of the air. In several late papers we see that attempts at improving aerostation and reducing it to something practical, are being carried on with, if not success, at least perseverance. The great difficulty to be overcome is to render the balloons, in whatever shape they may bo constructed, manageable in direction, a difficulty which arises from the machine not only being supported in but owing the motive power to the same fluid. A vessel supported in water owes its impulse either to the wind, which allows direction to be given by the resistance of the water to the various parts of the machine, or it is impelled by some motive power in itself, acting on the water by an agent which gives it a motion quicker than that of the mass it floats in. The first is, with regard to balloons an evident impossibility. The change of direction can only be given by seeking currents of air...
The Past Year. (From the "Times.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849
The Past Year. (From the " Times.") WE have just passed a great turning point in the story of the world. The year 1848 claims an anxious review, not merely be- cause it was crowded with events of sur- passing magnitude and importance, or be- cause those events exhibited the mutual bearings, the surprises, the vicissitudes, the catastrophes, and even the union of a. drama ; but because, like a few other dates in authentic history, it is an actual passage from old things to new. We have seen a, continental campaign, no longer between, monarch or nations, but between classes Questions hitherto discussed in the closet have been decided by armed populations. The majestic creations of policy or of time have been submitted to the suffrages of the casual populace. In the tumultuous forum of Europe, princes, dynasties, con- stitutions, ranks, honors, privileges, every- thing venerable or effete, noble or debased, has had to plead for existence against opin- ion and passion. Emperors and dema...
Atrocities at Rio de la Plata. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849
Atrocities at Rio de la Plata. The savage waa* between Monte Video and Buenos Ayres has given rise to nu- merous crimes of the most horrifying atro- city. Captain Mackinnon, of her Majes- ty's ship Alecto, who has lately returned home, relates that just before he proceeded up the Parana, he met an Italian, who had arrived in charge of an open boat from the river Uruguay. He related that when about a hundred miles above Buenos Ay- res he had one night made his boat fast to the bank, and lain down to sleep. Un- luckily, a little before day dawned, a party of the enemy discovered the sleeping ma- riners, plundered the boat of everything valuable, murdered two of the crew, and, laying the captain flat on his back, nailed his hands and feet with spike nails to the deck, and left him there to perish in agony as the sun attained its strength. Providentially, two of the crew, who had been sleeping under the bushes on the bank, escaped observation, and as soon as the marauders were gone from...

Local Intelligence. We regret having to report that the schooner Bee, the property of Mr. J. "W. Turner, of Augusta, was driven on shore, between the wreck of the Mndicott and the "Tub" beacon, in Geographe Bay, on Sunday, the 27th ultimo, having parted her cable during a very heavy gale from the north-west.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. &lt;c Voxpopuli, vox Dei." FE1D1^JUNÍT57I849. THE nuisance arising from the numerous dogs kept by the inhabitants of our towns, more particularly in Perth, is daily be- coming worse, and many parts of the town are actually dangerous to traverse, espe- cially to females, from the savageness of these canine pests, who, however ferocious they may be, are by their owners suffered to be at large and unmuzzled. The little curs which jump bariring out of nearly every gate in Perth, at the passers by, are nuisances which require correction, but what we now wisli to call the atten- tion of the authorities to, is a much more serious evil, and although there may be no very recent instance of personal injury arising from it, we consider that some steps ought to be taken to prevent such a possibility. From the small number of licenses which have been taken out for dogs in Perth, and the great number of them infesting the streets, we cannot be- lieve the town cons...
