California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

California. Ane ioiiowing is tue latest official return of the value of the gold diggings : "Mint of the United States, Philadelphia, Bec. 11, 1848. "SIR,-On the 8th in st. we received, as I have already had the honour to inform you, the first deposit of gold from Califor- nia. It was deposited by Mr. David Car- ter, who brought it from San Francisco by the Isthmus route. It weighed 1,804 59 ounces troy, of which 1,423-80 was from the lower surface mines, and 380-79 from those at Feather River. On the 9th in st. another deposit was sent by the Se- cretary of War which weighed 228 ounces. "The gold was of two sorts in external character, though apparently not different as to quality. The first, from the 'dry diggins,' was in grains which averaged from one to two pennyweights; the other variety, from the swamps or margins of the streams, being in small flat spangles, of which, on an average, it would take six or seven to weigh one grain. Of these, by far the larger part of the deposit...

The "John Bagshaw," from South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

The " John Bagshaw," from South Australia. By the arrival of this vessel we have re- ceived intelligence from S. Australia to 12th June, but the JSmma Sherratt had sailed on the 5th with the principal portion of the mail. In the few papers we have at present received, we find but little in- telligence of interest. The English news is to the 5th March, a few items of which we give. Immigrants still continued to arrive at S. Australia from England in large numbers. The affairs of the South Australian Bank were occupying a large share of public attention, a proposition ha- ving been made in London to dispose of the concern to the Union Bank of Austra- lia: The bi'ig Scout was wrecked on the 22nd May, ou the Black Reef at the entrance of Bass's Straits, on her voyage from Hobart Town to Adelaide ; crew and passengers saved. Burra shares are quoted at at £150; wheat 4s. to 4s. 4d. per bushel ; flour £11 10s. per ton ; bran Is. per bushel. A new tract of land said to exceed two millions o...

n»UMu«jtfmw.mmww«ua« London Agency. THE undersigned, having established himself as a GENERAL 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 erders 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. Address, either to his Office, 9, George Yard, Lombard Street, or at the Jerusalem Coffee House, Cornhill, City. 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.

TJie name and address of tlie writer must accompany each com- munication. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal? Sir,-The weal or woe of this colony has often occupied my thoughts during the last 19 years; every year's experience continues to strengthen and confirm early convic- tions. Its present and future prospects have been foretold by numerous writers years ago, many predictions have been ful filled, and others are being realized, and if the same "dog-trot" course be pursued by parties in power, the colony must still have a downward tendency, until Freman- tle becomes a hamlet of fishermen, and the Government a mere official staff. And how is this ? Is it because the climate'is so dreadfully unhealthy that human beings cannot live in it ?-is it because the colony has no resources ?-is it because the colo- nists have lost all energy, and ...

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

Tojhe Editor of tlie "Perth Gazette." Su',-Last week I gave something like a promise that I would take into consideration your conclu- ding remarks on agriculturists and agricultural affairs. It ha3 been boldly asserted, and will be as boldly argued, that tho farmer cannot grow wheat under 7.s. per bushel, that is, if he is to live by his trade and make anything like a reasonable profit; and I think no candid, liberal minded man, or class of men, can be so destitute of proper feel- ings as to wish him to grow grain at a sacrifice, which has been the case, in consequence of over- whelming importations, and the folly of the towns- people in purchasing them. Allow me to say, that so soon as the reciprocal interchange of commodity between the farmer and tradesman in the same state ceases to exist, then the most direful consequences are to be expected, for the "house," or "state," is "divided against it- self, and therefore cannot stand." The breaking up of mutual interests is ahoady mos...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The accounts received in Dublin from the country, on the morning of [February 2Sth, were deplorable. Cholera was ex- tending in the north, hunger and desti- tution in the south and west, and death advancing everywhere. In the district known as Connemara, the deaths from msxifficient and bad food amounted to hun- dreds daily. One of the sufferers, on whose remains au inquest was held, had not tasted food for three days! A few mo- ments before his death, he was asking for something to eat-but he could not obtain any food. Between our last advices and the 1st March, there had been a marked declino in the British funds, in consequence of a series of unpleasant rumours from the Continent ; on that day Consols underwent a further decline of nearly 1 per cent.r leaving off at 91-f. On the 28th February, the reported in- terference of Austria in the affairs of the Koman Republic was confirmed through the Paris papers. The Patrie contained the following paragraph :-" T...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

To the Editor oft/ie "Inquirer." Nearly a year ngo, some articles appeared in your journal warning the colonists of the dangers impending over us in consequence of over-produc- tion in the neighboring colonies. They were re- minded that the snrplus produce of those colonies would inevitably be poured into our own until wo should be completely swamped and reduced to their level; any in conclusion tho Government was earnestly and pathetically invoked to give heed to the approaching evil, and pass such a measure as might serve, like a break-water, to bear back the surging tide. Since that period however, irritated apparently by the goadings of correspondents, you have become a zealous advocate of free-trade, and have denounced every suggestion for a prohibitory duty. It is this, my dear Sir, which has afflicted us so much. We might have borne ruin with somo appearance of resignation, had not our wannest friend stood aloof from our side. You argue that if our producers cannot afford us ...

Home Production v. Importation. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

Home Production v. Importation. IN our present issue will be found a lengthy communication (including two letters be- fore published) from an old and respected colonist, on the oft-mooted question of a restriction being placed on the importation of bread stuffs, for the protection of the home producer. There can be but one opinion as to the position of the agriculturist of this pro- vince-that it is one of peculiar difficulty and hardship-no one can deny that not only at present but for a series of years past, his struggles to maintain himself above water have emly tended to sink him still deeper in the gulf of embarassment and ruin, more especially those cultivating land over the hills. Situated at a distance of, at the least, sixty miles from the towns where alone a market can be expected or hoped for, with no road worthy the name, and with wages extravagantly high, the farmer has proved it to be utterly impos- sible to produce corn and sell it to the consumer at as low a price as...

China. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 July 1849

China. We continue our extracts from the Hongkong journals :— The principal subject of interest during the month has been the interview between Seu, the Imperial Commissioner, and Mr. Bonham, which took place on board H.M. S. Hastings, in Anson's bay, on the 17th February. The two were closetted to- gether for several hours with only the in- terpreters, Mr. Gutzlaff and Mr. Meadows, present. The result has not been declared and it is natural as well as proper that the Home Government should learn it through the despatches of their representative, ra- ther than from the public journals. The general impression however is that no de- finite arrangement has yet been made for our entering the city. A report was at one time in circulation that Seu had beha- ved rudely or at least discourteously at the interview. This we believe has been posi- tively contradicted. It is to be hoped that the matter will be finally settled one way or another on the present occasion. It suited the conveni- en...

The Great Sea-Serpent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

The Great Sea-Serpent. Our readers will remember that some months ago the officers and crew of HMS. Dadalus reported having seen what they called a sea-serpent in the latitude of the Cape. But from the description given Professor Owen has declared his belief, the animal seen was a large seal-lion which had probably been carried away by an Ice- berg. It is a somew^hat singular coinci- dence that a marine animal was seen by the officers and some of the men of the Inconstant on the passage to this colony, and not any considerable distance from the spot rendered remarkable by the Dadalus's discovery. We subjoin a description kind- ly furnished by Charles Watkins, Esq., Surgeon Superintendent. We hope the writer will lose no time in sending a copy of his drawing and description to some scientific friend in England : "On May 1st, 1849, in latitude 38.8 south, longitude 36.20 east, at half-past nine a.m. my at- tention was called by the second mate to a strange looking object in the water ...
