PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

PUBLIC MEETING. Pursuant to advertisement, a Public Meeting on the Land Regulations recom- mended by the Committee appointed by His Excellency for the purpose, was held on Wednesday last. Being on a subject more immediately concerning the squatting and farming interests, the attendance was principally of persons connected with those pursuits, but was quite as numerous as could possibly have been expected at this busy portion of the year. Tho Sheriff, G. F. Stone, Esq., said that although the meeting had been called by himself on a requisition, he wished they would select their own chairman; he could assure them that he was by no means desirous of hold- ing the office himself. Mr. A. O'G. Lefroy proposed seconded by Mr. W. Burges, that the Sheriff take the chair, which was carried unanimously. The Sheriff having read the requisition to himself to convene the meeting, observ- ed that having been called to preside over tlie proceedings, he had no wish by his manner of doing so, to call...

California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

California. ' Prom our late files of journals, we ga- ther the following additional particulars of this extraordinary region : According to the last accounts now gi- ven to the public, emigrants were crowding iu from every port of the Pacific to Cali- fornia-from Mexico, Peru, the Sandwich Islands, Oregon; and we have no doubt by this time the British possessions iu the East, China, and everywhere else in that region, are furnishing emigrants to the wonderful regions of California. In less than a year there will probably be a popu- lation of 100,000 to 200,000 souls, all dig- ging for gold, and capable of producing from ^100,000 to ^300,000 worth per annum of pure gold, to bo thrown on the commerce of the world at one fell swoop. This will produce results that no one can at this time estimate. These are the general results of the pro- ductiveness of this region, and the pros- pect before us for the next two years. What is to be the effect of such vast dis- coveries on the commerce o...

The Latest News from India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

The Latest Hews from India. There have been stirring events in In- dia, the chief of which is a tremendous battle between the British forces under Lord Gough, and the Sikhs, commanded by Shere Singh, The former claims the victory, and royal salutes have been fifed at Calcutta and Lahore. But the loss of the English is so great, and the result so far from decisive, that the engagement has given little satisfaction. BATTLE OP TnE JEHLUÎT. (Calcutta Englishman, Jan. 26.) Head Quarter Camp, Jan. 14.-Since writing you last we have made two marches, and came within sight of the enemy yes- terday ; about two o'olock in the afternoon the action commenced, and such firing I never witnessed. The 24th were sent against a battery of 30 guns, but had to retreat in a most disorderly manner, one half of the regiment was left on the ground. I am sorry to say through the cowardice of the 14th Dragoons, we lost some ten or twelve Horse Artillery guns. One squad- ron of the Lancers got surrounded, but...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Mr Mundy, w ho has held the office of Colonial Secretary for some years, proceeds to England next w eek, on leave of absence "but in reality, w o believe, finally resigning .the situation. Mr Mundy leaves the co- lony with the respect and esteem of all who ha\ e had the pleasure of his personal acquaintance. His worth and integrity have never been doubted, and even in those measures in which the colonists have most differed from the Governor of the day and his official supporters, in Mr Mundy's brief and-rhetorically speaking-imper- fect statements, were always to be found the only ai'guments upon w hieb they could bo maintained or justified. The London Eailway Company have commenced the preliminary [surveys ne- cessary, in order to make au application to the Legislative Council for an Act to au- thorise their future operations. We have news from Sydney to the 18th May. There had been no change of grain markets, but a favorable improvement in the priera of stocke Th...

The Opening of Parliament. HER MAJESTY'S SPEECH. MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

The Opening of Parliament. HER MAJESTY'S SPEECH. Mx LOHDS AND GENTLEMEN', The period having arrived at which the business of Parliament is usually resumed, I have called you together for the discharge of your important duties. It is satisfactory to me to be enabled to state that both in the north and in the south of Europe, the contending parties have consented to a sus- pension of arms for the purpose of negotiating terms of peace. The hostilities carried on in the island of Sicily were attended with circumstances so revolting, that the British and French Admirals were im- pelled, by motives of humanity, to interpose, and stop the effusion of blood. I have availed myself of the interval thus ob- tained to propose in conjunction with France, to the King of Naples, an arrangement calculated to produce a permanent settlement of affairs in Sici- ly. The negotiation on these matters is still pend- ing. It has been my anxious endeavours in offering my good offices to the various contendi...

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 July 1849

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. -A__ The plans of the Hudson's Bay Com- pany for the settlement of Vancouver's Island, under the grant from the Crown, are advertised in the Times. We see the stipulation made by government is, that all profits from sales of land or working of minerals beyond 10 per cent, shall be ap- plied to colonization and improvements. The Company offers land in twenty-acre blocks, reserving all minerals except coal, which is subject to a royalty of 2s Ga per ton. There is to be a Governor and . Council of seven members appointed by the Crown, and a House of Assembly elected by the colonists, twenty acres being the electoral qualification. The legisla- ture tims constituted will impose taxes and regulate all internal affairs. The ports and harbors are to be free to all na- tions. The East India Company had applied to government for three more regiments in addition to those which had just em- barked. Should their request be acceded to, a force amounting to 6,000 rank and file...

The Ban of Croatia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

The Ban of Croatia. THE following sketch of Baron Joseph Von Jellachich, the Ban of Croatia, who has acquired so sudden a celebrity, will be read with interest : He is a man of the middle height, of a powerful and firmly knit frame, 49 years of age, in his youth of delicate constitution, but now enjoying excellent health. His head is bald at the top, encircled with a fringe of jet black hair; he has a high forehead, bushy eyebrows, a mild dark eye, an aquiline nose, a finely chiselled mouth, with an expression of great decision of cha- racter. He leaves the impression upon the observer of a man of a mild but determined character, fully confident of his own pow- ers. He has not one particle of pride about him, one would scarcely look upon him as the leader of a wild race, or a man of high ambition. His voice is soft; his education is entirely German ; he speaks German as if it was his native tongue, and with the Austrian accent ; he is a great admirer of the German language and liter...

Cobden's Financial Reform. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

Cobden's Financial Reform. Just before the close of 1848, Mr. Cob- den made public a scheme of financial re- form and retrenchment, through the Li- verpool Financial Reform Association. The medium is not the best he could have cho- sen, but Mr. Cobden, by the boldness of his scheme, has at once challenged the at- tention of the country, and suggested al- terations that will give him supporters from classes he has hitherto been opposed to. Mr. Cobden broaches his subject with a boldness characteristic of the author of Thee Trade. You hardly read seven lines of his letter before he tells you, that of two propositions-viz., to alter the taxa- tion from indirect to direct, or to reduce the amount of taxation-he prefers the latter, and " it would be far easier to effect a reduction of the expenditure to the ex- tent of ten millions !" To explain this, he instances the Budget of 1835, which was £10,753,000 less than that of 1447-8 and proceeds to shew that the difference is mainly in the ...

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 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. 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. E. BLUNDELL.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpojjuli, vox Dei." rEJJDAY7jÏÏÎÎF2^l9. THE important movement on the Land Regulations having been brought to a de- cision on the part of the settlers, in the meetings held in Perth last week, and the subsequent presentation of the Amended Regulations to His Excellency on Mon- day last, we may now oifer a few remarks on the result. With regard to the Meeting itself, we, in common with most others present, were much surprised and disappointed at the very unbusiness-like and crude manner in which the proposed amendments on the Committee's Regulations were offered to the Meeting. The framers of the propo- sitions, not considering that although they were quite conversant with the alterations they proposed, the meeting were not, pro- duced them in such a manner as to pre- clude the possibility of any person even reading them ! We must confess we ex- pected better things at their hands, and were bitterly disappointed to find there was a great chance of the mov...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

EMUS!! EXTRACTS. The Right Hon. Sir H. L. Bulwer, who lately represented Her Majesty in Spain, has been appointed to succeed Sir R. Pa- kenham as British Minister in the United States. It is understood that the differ- ences with Spain, which have led to a sus- pension of diplomatic relations, are in pro- cess of amicable adjustment. An action for crim. con. had been laid against the unfortunate Duke of Bucking- ham, the amount of damages claimed being the enormous sum of 50,000Z. Sir John Franklin's expedition was out four years on the 25th May last. The date of the last auditing of the ac- counts of Western Australia is 1843. An important invention in the manu- facture of lace, it is said, is about to be in- troduced to the trade, by which colors can be thrown into the fabric, and all the small beams now applied to the machines dis- pensed with, as well as the pieces being extended to three or four times their pre- sent length. It is asserted in the Church and State Gazette, that ...

South Australia. FLOGGING FEMALES ON BOARD THE "RAMILIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

South Australia. FLOGGING FEMALES ON BOARD THE«BAMILIES. WE have seen and heard complaints of the treatment of the sailors and passengers on board the above vessel, which however wre did not notice, as it was understood, steps were to be taken by the parties con- cerned. Disagreements so frequently arise on a voyage that they attract little attention until legal redress is sought. But the present case assuming a very im- portant character, and no charge having been as yet preferred, we have felt it our duty to make close enquiries. As to the general treatment of the pas- sengers we receive various accounts : but this is not the object of our present notice. All are agreed in the fact that four female emigrants were flogged during the pas- sage. Their names are Catherine Morgan, Phoebe Spooner, Jane Downey, and Mar- garet Mack. Of their conduct we hear conflicting accounts, but this is of no ma- terial consequence. The fact is certain that fully grown girls-seventeen or eight- een ye...

Adjourned Public Meeting. Thursday, July 20, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

Adjourned Public Meeting. Thursday, July 20,1849. Mr. Brockman having read the amended^ Regulations, moved seconded by Mr. Le- froy, " that they be adopted by the meet- ing and a deputation of six gentlemen se- lected by the meeting, be empowered to wait on His Excellency the Governor and respectfully request that the set of Squat- ting Regulations now read be substituted for those drawn up by the Committee." Mr. Lukin seconded by Mr. T. Carter, proposed as an amendment, .' that the re- gulations be put to the meeting clause by clause by the Chairman," which was carried. The reserve clause to class A. having been read, Mr. Lukin objected to the re- serve of a line along the sea coast, and re- ferred to Mr. Clifton's letter as an ex- ample of the injurious effect it would have. They had had quite sufficient proof that the Government was not very tender to settlers, and although the present Govern- or was inclined to liberal measures, there was no telling how soon affairs might alter;...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

NEW SOUTH WALES. The Sydney Government Gazette con- tains the official return of the revenue of the colony (exclusive of Port Philip) for the quarter ended 31st March. The re- turn shows an increase on the correspond- ing quarter of last year of £1339 under the head of duties, taxes, &c., and of 2226/. under the head of crown revenue. There is a falling off, however, of 99/. fees and fines, and of 1,803/. in the miscellaneous revenue. The total revenue for the quar- ter is £68,622 7s 6d. Prom the vineyard returns for 1848, we perceive that the aggregate breadth of land devoted to the culture of the vine is not less than one thousand acres, that the ascertained quantity of wine made was 55,335 gallons, and the quantity of brandy 1,432 gallons. Speaking of the Governor's return from V. D. Land, the 8. M. Herald says :-"No demonstration whatever was made ; there was not a cheer or a word of disapproba- tion. The public seemed to be held in doubt-a doubt which His Excellency can...

GLEANINGS FROM LATE COLONIAL JOURNALS. CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

GLEANINGS FROM LATE COLONIAL JOURNALS. CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. General discontent pervades this place in consequence of Sir H. Smith having ex- pressed his determination to introduce a militia bill into the council. Public meet- ings were being called in every part of the colony to protest against the measure. The following is an extract from a letter of a correspondent in the South African : " The spirit of calling meetings to discuss proposed bills introduced into the council is quite a novel feature, but want of confi- dence and discontent have impelled them into the present proceedings, and God only knows where this will end. A be- ginning is made, and after this we may fully expect similar meetings will be hela. My only fear is that their excited feelings will carry them beyond the bounds of mo- deration. The idea of being enlisted for four years and drilled is nothing less than slavery, and they are determined to resist the same by every lawful means. They argue that they are taxed...

Steam Communication. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 July 1849

Steam Communication. A correspondent of the Launceston Ex- aminer had lately placed in the hands of the editor tbe following extract from a let- ter just received by him from London : "The India and Australia Royal Mail Steam -Company have at length had their contracts ac- cepted by the Government. The contracts are, first, one for a monthly mail between Singapore and Sydney ; second, one for a mail, also monthly between England and Alexandria. The city mer- chants, however, are clamouring for a bi-monthly mail on the 3rd of each month, and we expect a .contract for this also shortly. We have thus you see severed the two ends of the line, and leave the Toute between Sue¿ and the continent of Asia for future arrangements, but there is no doubt that in a short time this latter portion of the route will be as fully occupied by our ships as it is now by those of the Oriental and Peninsular Company. Our contracts are for fourteen years ; the Govern- ment reserving the right to modify the...
