Dissolution of the Berlin Assembly. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Dissolution of the Berlin Assembly. For the present the Government is tri- umphant ; the last two days have put an end even to the semblance of the struggle kept up by the "protesting" moiety of the National Assembly ; its two last sit- tings were each broken up by the military. The president and his adherents, driven from their place of meeting in the Stad- thaus on Tuesday at the point of the bayonet, assembled on Wednesday in Kolnischehaus, in the Breiten Strasse. Expelled from this locality by the same force, to which alone the president declar- ed he would yield, the deputies gathered together for the last time yesterday in Mielent's salon (once the centre of the Constitutional Club) ; a brief debate on an important question, the refusal of taxes, was again interrupted by an officer and a file of soldiers, and the president only escaped another explusion by suddenly putting the question and declaring the sitting closed ; adding that he should not call another meeting without a ...

The American Union. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

The American Union. ' The Union is now composed of thirty different States, fifteen of which are free and fifteen slave-holding. For some years back new States have been introduced in couples, so as to preserve the established equilibrium. When Michigan was intro- duced as a free, Arkansas came in as a slave State ; Iowa was a free set off to Florida, as a slave-holding acquisition: whilst "Wisconsin was balanced against Texas. With the exception of the Ame- rican portion of Oregon there is now no available territory in the north, out of which free states may be created, to coun- terbalance the many slave states which may be carved out of the immense regions which are regarded as open for acquisition in the South. So long as both parties could play at state-making against each other the crisis of the slavery question was indefinitively postponed. But this game is about to cease, and the whole subject is now assuming an aspect of gravity, such as it has never before worn. Passing eve...

Timber. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Timber. As a proof that the timber of this colony is becoming known as a most valuable de- scription, not only in England but in other places, and is fast taking its place by the side of the first qualities in the markets, we extract the following from a late Cape paper : VALUABLE WOODS.-A gentleman recently from England, has brought with him a piece of Austra- lian wood, known as the Blackthorne, remarkable for the solidity of its substance and the fineness of its grain. These qualities and the high polish of which it is consequently susceptible, have lately brought it much into estimation in England, where it is used for many of the purposes to which ivory is ordinarily applied. Its excellence and rarity, together with the great demand for it, have given it an extraordinary value, the present selling price being, as we are informed, £100 ner ton. The Blaukthorno is not the only Australian wood with which the English market is HOW supplied. From Swan River, in particular, two or th...

Religious Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Religious Miscellanea. .C/jávBCH BATES.-At the annual meet* ing of the deputies from the Protestant and Dissenting congregations, which was held in London, 'the subject of church rates was thus summarily disposed of. The Chairman in reply to a formal complaint made by a Mr. Brown, who stated that he represented a Dissenting congregation of 2000 persons, said-"Gentlemen might charge the committee with neglect if they pleased ; but he had no hesitation in tell* ing them that they had no chance of carry iny Hie measure (the abolition of church rates) at present. In fact, the committee could not get any other member of the Mouse of Commons besides Mr Osborne to take up the question. A great many members posi- tively declined. THE MOBMONITES.-At a large meeting of these people lately held at Merthyr, " Capt. Dan Jones" in the chair, the fol- lowing particulars relative to the society in Wales, were stated:-10 conferences; baptised during the last six months, 1001; total baptised during t...

Ceylon. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Ceylon. This Island and its recent chief rulers are thus severally treated of, in the Morn iny Chronicle: This island, three times the size of Jamaica-nearly as large, and nearly as. unfit for British institutions, as Ireland* contains a mixed and half savage popula- tion of about a million and a quarter, com- posed of Cingalese, Hindoos, Javanese, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, and English. The wild and uncivilised nature of the country and its inhabitants-their various and conflicting laws, religions, and habits, render it imperative that the person en- trusted with their government should be a public servant of proved firmness, temper, and administrative ability, practically con-, versant with the peculiarities of Oriental life and character, and not unaccustomed to the conduct of colonial business. In order, we presume, to facilitate the per- formance of the important duties which devolve upon him, the Governor of Ceylon is endowed with almost absolute power. Macculloch tells us, t...

The Model Debtor. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

The Model Debtor. So long as he gets a thing on credit he never thinks it dear. No dinner is too good for him ; the dearest wines, the ear- liest peas, the most juvenile strawberries ; the strongest liqueurs; the most exotic luxuries-everything that is expensive and delicious, so that he ia not called upon to give ready money for it. The world pays, and he enjoys himself. His cab is found him free of expense, and by some charm he has a 200 guinea horse sent home to him without paying a single penny for it. The rent of his house is several quarters due ; the furniture is of the very best, but not a stick or a stitch of it has ever been settled for, and the very sheets he sleeps in might be taken from under him by the washerwoman, for terrible arrears of debt. These thoughts, however, do not trouble his happiness. He trusts, for everything, to his appearance. He knows well enough that a man with a shabby exterior never gets credit for anything in this world. He has a good coat, and on...

Political Position of Continental Europe. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Political Position of Continental Eu- rope. Louis NAPOLEON having been elected President by four-fifths of the voters in France, whilst the odds were as much against him in the National Assembly, it has been perceived that the President and the Assembly could not pull together, and accordingly petitions have been pouring in requiring the Assembly to dissolve itself and. to decree another general election of representatives. But the current of pub- lic opinion has been so altered since the last election, that not one-half of the pre- sent members can expect to be re-elected ; they have therefo.'e refused to comply with a demand which would reduce them to the ranks, and deprive them of 25 francs a-day-no light consideration to many of them. Strictly speaking, and according to the letter of the law, the As- sembly is right in maintaining its exist- ence until it has accomplished the task for which it was appointed: but it is against the spirit of a free constitution for representatives...

Labuan. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Labuan. Lord Grey's instructions to the Gover- nor of Labuan have been laid before Par- liament. Upon these instructions the Englishman makes the following observa- tions : The first thing remarkable therein is the com- paratively moderate scale on which the establish- ment is placed. The Governor gets £2,000 a year, and the Lieutcnant-Govcrnor £1,375, the Gover- nor's Secretary §1,500, or about £330, and there are only two other functionaries of £500 a year each-namely, the Master Attendant who is also Postmaster, and the Surveying Engineer. The Colonial Surgeon gets £416 13s. 4d, The total establishment is £6,327 10s. It may, perhaps, be thought that even this estimate contains one superfluous member, namely, the Lieutcnant-Go vernor ; but it must be remembered that Sir J. Brooke is also Governor of the British establish- ment on the island of Borneo, or, as the official letter runs " Labuan and its dependencies." As there is no judicial establishment, the law will be administered...

The Go-Alongs. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

The Go-Alongs. It is a common saying among military men that there are in the army two kinds of officers-the Come-alongs and the Go alongs ; or, in other words, if the saying can need any explanation, the skulkers, who are content with merely urging others onward in the path of duty and danger, and the brave fellows who stimulate by their example, and are as ready to share the peril as the glory. In looking round upon the busy walks of life, we find that not -a few consist of this Go-along kind of people. They will listen attentively to your benevolent pro- jects, they wiÜ express approbation of your principles of action ; they will profess unqualified admiration of your mode of proceedingjjand their cordial sympathy with with the end you have in view ; but imme- diately you solicit their countenance and aid, they shrink from your appeal, and en- deavour to shuffle you off by protests of inability, or by plausibly insisting that they shall require time to consider of it ; and endeav...

Crown Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 August 1849

Crown Lands. Mr. Wakefield, the well-known origina- tor of the system upon which the colony of South Australia was founded, has re- cently published a pamphlet, on the sub- ject of the sale of Crown Lands by auction, a plan which, it will be seen by the extracts we subjoin, he entirely disapproves of: Under the auction plan, the honest industrious settler is liable to be plundered by jobbing and>. roguery of various sorts. The official- surveyors,, by means of information obtained whilst they were making the survey, have it in their power to* job; and under our system of colonial govern-» mont, official surveyors are capable of jobbing in the very souls of their parents and children. OMT cials of all sorts, who can obtain from the survey» or's reports superior information as to the varying qualities of the land, can job if they please, and do job most wofully. The speculating capitalist' can job by means of his command of money. The bona fide settler, the man ready and anxious to...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Voxpojjuli, vox Dei? ^ID^Y7AUOT¥T^1849T Ir is with much pleasure that we announce this week, that a first step towards the formation of a local Committee, in aid of the Western Australian Land and Labor Association formed in London, has been made. This is truly a subject of congra- tulation, for we are persuaded that no more feasible project has ever been set on foot for the benefit of the colony-a pro- ject which not only offers a chance to the colonial land-holder of, in some measure, realising a portion of the capital which has so long lain dormant, bat also of rais- ing the value of his remaining property, at,the same time that it,will supply him with cheaper labour te cultivate it to ad- vantage and a larger home market; fox }m produce.
