The Self Duties of Colonists. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 October 1849

The Self Duties of Colonists. When emigration is decided to be the only remedy for the evil of a surplus po- pulation, it becomes the duty of a govern- ment to take care not only that it shall not operate to the injury of the emigrants, but it shall effect its designed purpose of placing them in a state of comparative prosperity, which was hopeless at home. Measures to that view should not merely be adopted, when suggested, but they should be urgently sought for to prevent those, who " leave their country for their country's good," as much as for their in- dividual advancement, from regretting their change of condition. To this grand re- sult, their attention ought to be constantly and anxiously directed. But what is the fact ?-Do we find our Government, though acknowledging the advantage of the pre- scription, doing anything to promote its efficacy ? On the contrary, ought we not rather to say that their whole conduct whether of action or neglect (mostly the latter) is not rather c...

The "Editor of this Journal invites the free express sion of the opinions of his Correspondents, but can- not be held responsible for them. The name and address of the writer must accompany each com- munication. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." Sir,-Having been out of town since the date of my last letter, 1 have not before had an opportunity of replying to your ob- servations upon it. You were not correct in your supposition, that the building I referred to was the Light-house now erect- ing contiguous to the Gaol at Premantle, but the supposition on your part was per- fectly natural, from my having stated that masonry was being executed for the Go- vernment without having been tendered for; whereas I should have said carpentry; my error I account for by my having mis- understood my informant. The particu- lars of the cause of complaint are these, a new lining was required for Fremantle Gaol, and, instead of the work being put up^to public tender, a contrary course was p...

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 October 1849

Cape of Good Hope. Tho extent to which the Cape territory has been extended by usurpation and trea- ty, has rendered the above title scarce a fitting one, and that of South Africa, as it is now frequently used, a far moro appli- cable one. We have retained it as one to which our readers have long been accus- tomed, and sufficiently pointing out the colony to which we advert. It has, how- ever, one great objection, which is that, pertaining properly only to a portion, and that a small one, of a vast therritory, it gives limited and restricted ideas of the country; just as the term Botany Bay, long the general term for these colonies, not merely led to confusing all the localities, but to the most ludicrous mistakes. It is not improbable that a division of territory will shortly take place, extending as it does over a country, greater in area than any in Europe except that of Russia, and that the present colony of South Africa may be divided into two or three independ- ent governments...

Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 October 1849

Public Meeting. THE important adjourned Meeting for the formation of a Horse Company, in con- junction with residents in India, was held at the Premasons' Tavern on Wednesday last. On account of the country settlers being at present generally engaged in shearing, the assemblage was by no means large, and it will be perceived that it was agreed to call another meeting for further consideration, on the 7th Proximo, when it is hoped that the settlers will be better able to give their attendance. "W. L. Brockman, Esq., having been called to the chair, read the minutes of the last meeting, as also the reply of His Excellency the Governor to the applica- tion made for a lease of 80,000 acres of lana for a long term. His Excellency's answer stated that, his present powers did not enable him to comply with the request, but that proposals for new Eegulations had been sent to the Home Government, and when a reply had been received, he should be happy to comply with the wishes of the Company, ...

American Expedition to the Dead Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 October 1849

American Expedition to the Dead Sea. The following is translated from the Courrier de Constantinople-. Our readers may remember that in the spring of the year Captain Lynch and some of his officers, of the United States brig Supply, proceeded to Constantinople, to obtain permission of the Ottoman Go- vernment to explore the Lake Tiberias; This was given, and the commendations given by the Sultan to the different officers of the places visited obtained for the in- trepid officers every kind of assistance re- quired. Nobody opposed the scientific research, the Arabs themselves offering their assistance, and frequently declining any remuneration for aid often of the most valuable kind. Our little expedition (says Captain Lynch), composed of some fifteen persons, \anded at St. Jean d'Are, from which place wa were desirous of proceeding to the Sea of Galilee, or Lake Tiberias, dis- tant some fifty milos. We had with us two metal boats-one of copper and the other of iron ; these we landed...

Exmouth Gulf. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 October 1849

Exmouth Gulf. WE have heard that His Excellency has had it in contemplation to make an exami- nation of Exmouth Gulf, situated to the northward of Shark's Bay, and which has never been thoroughly explored. Mr. Roe, our Surveyor-General, when surveying the coasts in the neigborhood, under Captain King, entered it a considerable distance, but finding that the soundings were of an unpromising nature, showing a sandy bot- tom, it was concluded that no river emp- tied itself into it, aud the further explora- tion of it was consequently given up. In the several passages of tue Beagle along the coast, it is singular that no attempt ap- pears to have been made to determine whe- ther there was a river or not opening into the Gulf. It is in the recollection of many old colonists, that in September, 1S33, a vessel from Java, the schooner Aranzau, ar- rived at this port, and reported that being without a chart of the coast, they had made the land somewhere about the North Cape, and running alon...

Wentworth's Boring Apparatus. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 October 1849

Wentworth's Boring Apparatus. A correspondent of the London Mining Journal, (Mr John Mullins, of Battersea), thus describes Wentworth's wonderful boring apparatus for miners : I have not seen in your valuable journal any no tico of a miner's boring apparatus for excavating holes for blasting rocks, &c, lately invented and patented, a description of which I cannot but think would deeply interest many of your readers. Tho origin of the invention I understand to have been this :-Daniel Watney, Esq., of Wandsworth, being the proprietor of certain iron ore and other mines in South Wales, on a recent visit was much struck with the great length of time and expendi- ture of labor required in boring holes for blasting the rock; and on returning to town, requested Mr. John Wentworth, of the firm of Wentworth and Sons, engineers, of Wandsworth, to direct his attention to the subject, with the object of de- vising some plan for the saving both of time and labor. The result was the inven...

Three men and two boys are employed at the machine, and are distributed thus-one man wheeling wet clay up an inclined plane with a barrow, which he lays down on a stage on the top of the pug-mill ; a lad feeds the mill ; two men and a boy are em- ployed below at the table-one man remo- ving the bricks as they pop out of the table to a barrow, another wetting the board, and the boy throwing dust or sand upon the table, as it goes round, that the brick may make its exit well formed an...

Trial by Jury. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 October 1849

Trial by Jury. Gradually at intervals, during the past ten years, have misgivings disturbed the public mind with regard to the perfect fitness of our jury system for the advanced intelligence of the age, and the circum- stances and relations of society existent around us. The traditional- veneration which Englishmen have, time out of mind entertained for trial by jury has been sha- ken, and partly dissipated by that sternest of monitors, and most sweeping of re- formers-common sense. "There is no- thing," says Shaftesbury, "so strong as habit." Custom is to a people what habit is to a unit of the people. Respect for an institution which has existed for centuries, and was once the cherished guarantee for personal privileges and security, may, without wonder, well remain after tÈe value of that institution has been greatly diminished. The eulogies of those great constitutional lawyers Coke and Hale (supported since by Blackstone, and by some later judges of the last century who have t...
