Cause of the Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849

Cause of the Cholera. The third report of the Metropolitan Sanatory Commissioners, gives the follow- ing extraordinary statement:-"At the last census in 1841, there were 270,859 houses in the metropolis. It is known that there is scarcely a house without a cess-pool under it, and that a large num- ber have two, three, four, and more, under them, so that the number of such recep- tacles in the metropolis may be taken at 300,000. The exposed surface of each cesspool, measures on an average, nine feet, and the mean depth of the whole is about 6½ feet, so that each contains 58½ cubic feet of fermenting filth of the most poisonous, noisome, and disgusting nature. The exhaling surface of all the cesspools, 2,700,000 feet, or equal to 62½ acres near- ly ; and the total quantity of foul matter contained in them 17,550,000 cubic feet, or equal to one enormous elongated stag- nant cesspool 50 feet in width, 6 feet 6 in- ches in depth, and extending through Lon- don from the Broadway at Hammer...

A Vagrant. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849

A Vagrant. An ingenious defence was made in a case tried at Galway at the present assizes. M'Connelly was placed at the bar and ar- raigned, the grand jury having presented him as a vagrant. The prisoner traversed. The evidence adduced against him clear- ly proved that he was a notorious bad cha- racter. He had no settled place of resi- dence, was constantly brought before the magistrate at petty sessions on charges of sheep-stealing and killing sheep ; he has publicly sold in markets legs of mutton at 6d each, and was committed for trial both at quarter sessions and assizes ; but so in- geniously did he continue to commit these offences that evidence could not be addu- ced legally to commit him. That he was a public nuisance'was proved by four gen- tlemen, two of whom were magistrates, namely, J. B. Kernan, R.M., and Lopdell, Esq., before whom the prisoner had been frequently brought, and upon the corpu- lent appearance of the second named gen- tleman the prisoner made part of his ...

Colonization. The following announcements appear in the English journals :-" Dissenters' Mu- tual Friendly Colonizing Society for aiding the emigration of respectable families to, and promoting colonization and the for- mation of distinct but neighboring settle- ments in Australia, upon a plan embody- ing the New Testament principles to the exclusion of those of an anti-Christian tendency,-- thus rendering the spread of evangelical truth in the antipodes the na- tural consequence of systematic Christian colonization.

Provisions for the Poor. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 June 1849

Provisions for the Poor. Under the spur of an aggrieved corres- pondent, the Morning Chronicle has vi- gorously assaulted the great prescriptive nuisance of Smithfield Cattle-market; and gives a startling sanatory fact, and then a grotesque yet horrifying detail of knacker- yard streets. The sanatory fact is this :--- "The medical men who practise in the city of London declare that cancerous and pulmonary affections have been enormous- ly increased of late years, by the quantity of meat unfit for human food, which is daily disposed of within the bills of mor- tality." These are the revelations of butcher-craft---"From the 1st day of January 1848 to the 7th of the following August, the inspector of Smithfield Mar- ket confiscated, out of 120,000 cattle and 800,000 sheep, not one diseased beast, and but five diseased sheep. It was notrious at the time, that, on every market-day, no less than from 50 to 100 head of cattle, and several hundred sheep, calves, pigs, &c., in a fear...

London Agency. THE undersigned, having established himself as a GENEEAL AGENT for the Australian colonies, begs to solicit the support of the Colonists of Western Australia. Being more particularly con- versant with matters of business and of a public nature connected with that colony, he flatters himself that he might be use- ful in negotiating-in carrying out any scheme, or furthering both public and pri- vate measures. Consignments or orders of any descrip- tion will have his best attention, and the greatest care taken to ascertain, from sam- ples, the values of articles of future export.

At the for- mer place gentlemen arriving from the co- lony may receive gratuitous information and assistance in their business, if required. J. W. F. BLUNDELL.

Lord Clarendon on Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 June 1849

Lord Clarendon on Ireland. The Lord" Mayor and Corporation of Dublin went in state to the Castle on Sa- turday, and presented the Lord Lieutenant with an address thanking him for the " temperate, able, and humane manner in which he had used the extraordinary pow- ers intrusted to him by Parliament," and for the " suppression of unhappy disturb- ances." "But, now that order is perfectly established," said the address, " we would earnestly impress on your Excellency the strong necessity existing for an extended and diligent inquiry into the causes creating such general discontent, preparatory to the introduction of such a system of remedial le- gislation as would create public confidence, tend materially to alleviato the condition of our unfor- tunate country, and bo calculated to remove tho manifold grievances so justly and so generally com- plained of." / Lord Clarendon declared, that it had been his earnest endeavor not alone to protect the peaceable, but to abstain from unnecessar...

Lord Grey[?]Emigration. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 June 1849

Lord Grey-Emigration.. (From the Times.) THEBE are many persons who know what were the views entertained respecting the colonies by the noble Secretary for that department, when he coutemplated its working from the benches of the opposi- tion. There are others who know what the noble Lord's plans were after his in- auguration in office. The former will not require to be told how completely his per- formances have disappointed the expecta- tions of his friends ; nor the latter how far they have fallen short of his own. We believe that if the noble Lord's confiden- tial correspondence with the Governors of our Australian and American colonies dur- ing the first year of his present tenure of the seals could be made public, they would reveal as complete a failure of comprehen- sive plans, and as sad a disappointment of sanguine hopes, as ever were deplored by a people or a minister. Nor will the tone which prevailed throughout his speech on Thursday night, though it may mitigate, altoge...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 June 1849

Local Intelligence. Tlio Quarter Sessions were held yesterday, but we are unavoidably compelled to defer our notice of the different cases until our next publication. The two Parkhurst lads, whose doings at Guildford we noticed two or three weeks since, were brought up from Fremantle on Wednesday evening, but du- ring the following night made their escape from tho building in Perth called a " Gaol." By this fresh escapade of these worthies, we suspect the chief reason for the Sessions having been held be- fore the usual time, has been defeated ; as it was doubtless for the purpose of shipping them off by tho Champion without delay. At the time of our going to press the lads had not been recaptured, but the Sessions were adjourned until Tuesday next. -? The Merope is expected to be ready to proceed to sea on the lit of July ; she will be a full ship, indeed it is uncertain whether she will be able to take in all the freight which offers. The Champion may now be hourly expected to arr...

Rewards of Authors. The £600 a year for ten years to Mr. Macaulay, for ten years' copyright of his first two volumes of the "History of Eng- land," is perhaps the largest sum ever giv- en for a work in two volumes. The larg- est sums heretofore lcnown to have been paid, are-4,000 guineas to Washington Irving for his "Life of Columbus," in four volumes, 8vo. ; 2,000 guineas to Moore for his "Life of Byron," in two volumes, 4to.; and £4,500, for ten years, to the present Bishop of Oxford and his brother, for the "Life of Wilberforce," in five volumes, 8vo. Mr. Roberts is said to have received 3,000 guineas from his "Life of Hannah More," in five volumes, 8vo. ; Mr. Twiss 2,000 guineas for his " Life of Lord Eldon ;" and Mr. Stanely something like 1,500 guineas from his " Life of Dr. Arnold ;" but these were receipts upon the sale, not specific sums given by way of speculation, like the payments to Moore, Irving, Wilberforce, and Macaulay. The largest sum ever realized by any one wrork...

Presidents of the United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 June 1849

Presidents of the United States. A Paris print shows that General Tay- lor is the twelfth President of the United States of America since the declaration of independence. Washington reigned, if we may so speak, from 1788 to 1796, hav- ing been re-elected in 1792 for a second quadrennial period. John Adams reigued from 1796 to 1800 ; Mr. Jefferson, from 1800 to 1808 ; Mr. Madison, from 1808 to 1816 ; General Monroe, from 1816 to 1824 ; Mr. John Quincy Adams, from 1824 to 1828 ; General Jackson, or " Old Hickory," from 1828 to 1886 ; Mr. Van Buren, from 1836 to 1840 ; General Har- rison, elected in 1840, for a few months only, having died in the spring of 1841 : Mr. Tyler, his successor, from 1841 to 1844 ; and Mr. Polk the ex-President, from 1844 to 1848. It will be seen that of the above devon Presidents as many as five were elected for two consecutive periods. " The constitution of the United States," observes the Journal du Havre, " whilst it orders that the President shall be ele...
