The Free-Coloured State of Liberia [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 October 1849
The Free-Coloured State of Liberia We have so often drawn the attention of our readers to the settlement of Liberia on the west coast of Africa, its utility, con- dition, and importance, that it is unneces- sary for us to recur to these topics at any length. Wo stated many months ago the fact, that it had declared its independence; and we have now the pleasure and satis- faction to state that both the British and French governments, as also, we believe, that of the United States, have readily ac- knowledged that independence, and en- tered into treaties of amity and commerce with the new and interesting state. Presi- dent Roberts, the head of the Republic, who has effected these treaties, leaves London in a few days, with his family to return to his position as chief magistrate of the new state, a passage being readily and properly given to them by our govern- ment in a man-of-war, proceeding to the coast of Africa. We wish them a prosper- ous voyage and every success. This is one s...
The mineralogy of South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 October 1849
The mineralogy of South Australia. We take the following extract from the S. A. Gazette. It is a portion of the offi- cial report of an officer of the South Aus- tralian Government, and contains some in- formation on the subject of mineral lands, which may perhaps apply equally well to this colony. At least, the subject of the geological formation of Australia, is one on which so little is known among us, that we gladly avail ourselves of any opportuni- ty which may offer, of gleaning even the slightest additional information concerning it. The first portion of the report, which wo omit, is occupied with details of too purely a local nature, to be either instruct- ive or entertaining to our readers : " I now proceed to make some remarks .on the principal rocks which are found in ¡South Australia : Limestone-which is found in every di- rection in great abundance. Clay-slate of various kinds, which is also very abundant, and often mixed with other rocks. Felspar-which is found mixed w...

Miscellaneous. INDIAN LUXUEIES.-My wife and I were sitting, after tea, playing at backgammon and enjoying the cool breeze that came through the Venetians, when suddenly it began to rain. In an instant, the room swarmed with insects of all sorts. There was the beautiful large green mantis, and as we were watching his almost human motions, a grasshopper and a large brown cricket flew against my face, while a great cockroach, full three inches long, came on my wife's neck, and began running about her head and face and dress ; the flying ant, which emits a most, nauseous effluvia, and the flying bug, black, and about the size of an English one, which, if you crush him, will make your fingers smell most dreadfully for many hours ; and with these our clothes were covered, and we were obli- ged to keep brushing them away from our faces, but with very gentle handling ; and then came two or three hornets, which sent Mrs. Ackland to bed, to get under the mosquito curtains, where none of these...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Voxpopuli, vox Dei." FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 October 1849
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1849. The barque Mary, from London 2nd July and Cowes the 6th July, dropped anchor in Gage's Roads yesterday afternoon about three o'clock. So far as we can ascertain she brings 19 passen- gers, of whom 4 are cabin, and 7 steerage, and the remainder consists of their respective families. She has also brought 21 young women whose passages have been paid by parishes, and 53 Parkhurst lads. Of course the intelligence of this arrival reached us at so late an hour before publication, that we are unable to give even a condensed account of the intelligence she brings. The following are a few items :—Capt. Hodger reports that no other vessel was laid on for this colony, nor would one leave before Oct. when a vessel belonging to the same owners as the Mary, Messrs. T. and F. Smith would be despatched to this port. The Swan Ri- ver News has changed its designation to that of the Western Australian; the number for July 1, stat...
America. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
America. News had been received from New York to the 20th June, and from California to the 15th May. The steam ship California sailed from San Francisco on the latter date, and arrived at Panama on the 21st. She had 1,000,000 dollars in gold dust on board. The astonishing accounts previ- ously received from the mines are said to fall far short of the reality. Cholera was making fearful ravages among the Californian emigrants at the west. Ex-President Polk.had died of chronic diarrhoa. The intelligence from California, and the arrivals of gold-dust at New York coming on a market previously over-stocked, and the unemployed capital, had the effect of carrying up the prices of United States stocks and Treasury notes very high. The inundations of the City of New Orleans were said to be extending.
Denmark. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Denmark. The war was still being prosecuted be- tween Denmark and the Duchies. On the 31st May the Prussians, under Prince Salm Salm, were surprised and defeated at Aar huus, by a body of Danish hussars. The Prince was severely wounded and captured. It was understood in London on the 2nd July, that the terms of an armistice Vere well nigh agreed upon, on the principle of the independence of the Duchies and the raising the blockade. The Eussian fleet is said to have approached Denmark, less to support its Schleswig claims, than to proffer assistance in case of insurrectionary movements in Denmark itself, of which there are fears.
Latest from California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Latest from California. The schooner J>ispatch had returned from California to Sydney, bringing news from San Erancisco to the 3rd May, and 2865 ounces of gold-dust. Of eighty ves- sels, the crews had all deserted, and, in some'instances, the masters also. Gold still continued to be found in abundance, wages were extravagantly high, and a general demoralization, added to fre- quent instances of outrage and murder, caused much unhappiness ; and a severe winter increased the discontent. We are glad to find, however, that something like a settled government had been formed : and among the newly-arrived were many persons of capital and respectable charac- ter. In San Erancisco the citizens held a great meeting on the 25th April, and elec- ted a legislature of eleven members. A Sheriff, a Eegistrar, and other officers had also been elected.
Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Cape of Good Hope. The arrival in Table Bay of the Randolph with a large number of passengers destined to Port Phillip, gave rise to a report that the Neptune, with the threatened cargo of convicts from Bermuda, had arrived ; South Africa having been, in conjunction with New South Wales, proclaimed hy an Order in Council as one of the colonies to which felons might be transported. Under this impression, the utmost con- sternation and excitement prevailed, and was participated in by all classes, from the Government officials to the humblest colo- nist. By a message to the Council the Governor informed them that he had done his utmost to avert the "calamity" by timely remonstrance, but as the Home Government had not thought proper to be influenced by his representations, there was only one course open to him (unless he chose to commit an act of open rebellion), and that course was to sanction the land- ing of the convicts. As soon as this mes- sage obtained publicity, the expressions ...

The Neighboring Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
The Neighboring Colonies. The intelligence from the neighboring colonies is not of any very great interest. The Bill for granting constitutional go- vernments (to'poor Western Australia con- ditionally on our paying the expenses of our own government), was exciting much discussion. Labour appears to be in ex- cess in South Australia, and from remarks and correspondence in the papers, it seems many are glad to accept rations as the only remuneration for their labour ; in confir- mation of this, we may state, that Capt, Eldred, of the Caspar, reports that nume- rous applications for a free passage to this colony were made to him, the applicants offering to work their passage or agree to anything to obtain one ; this appears rather singular, as the Champion, by which a free passage could have been obtained on find- ing their own provisions, had only just left the port.

Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Great Britain. The Funds were steadily improving, the last quotations being 92£. The resolution of Sir "W. Molesworth, for a committee to enquire into the admi- nistration of Colonial affairs, was rejected by the House of Commons by a large ma- jority. The Irish Transportation for Treason Bill was read a third1 time and passed. The House of Lords rejected the Parliamentary Oaths Bill. Baron Eothschild, having accepted the Chiltern Hundreds, goes again to the ci- tizens of London for re-election. Of the result there can be no doubt ; he will be returned by the unanimous voice of the metropolis, and again present himself in the House of Commons. Whether the House of Lords will consider the show of .resistance made on this first occasion suf- ficient to appease their conscientious ob- jections will be seen. The Irish rebels' appeal to the House of Lords had been rejected, and the con- victs subsequently claimed to be heard by counsel at the bar of the House of Com- mons, in support of ...
France. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
France. The excitement produced in Paris by the unwelcome intelligence from Italy was indescribable; people of all ranks and classes protested against intervention, and although the language of the President in his message to tho French Assembly was firm enough in reference to Austrian in- tervention in Italy, and Eussian interven- tion in Hungary, it was not sufficiently violent to satisfy the democrats and their sensitive journalists; so that not only was the impeachment of the President a com- mon topic of discourse, but M. Ledru Eol lin was hardy enough to move for an im- peachment in the Assembly. The motion however was lost by a majority of 361 to 203. An attempt at insurrection followed, but Paris was full of troops and another scene of carnage was prevented, energetic measures being taken and a timely display of force made. In France reaction is taking its full turn -the doubt is whether the pendulum will not swing forwards too far. The Minister of the Interior has issued a ...
India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
India. The Queen Mother of Lahore, the Ra- nee, mother of Dhuleep Singh, had,made her escape. She completely outwitted Major MrGregpr who had her in charge, and loft no trac« behind her. After ten days wondering where she could have gone, she had been heard of in Nepaul, and has since been given up. This celebrated wo- man travelled three hundred miles in thc^ disguise of a holy man or pilgrim through the most populous part of Bengal. On intimating her arrival, all she asked for from the Court was leave to live at liberty. Moolraj is to be tried at Lahore by com- mission for the murder of Lieuts. Agnew and Anderson. No fewer than three hun- dred witnesses arc, it is said, on the roll for examination. Printed and Published by ARTHUR SHENTON al the Office O/^'TUE INDEPENDENT JotmNAli', Adelaide Terrace, Perth.

Canada. ALARMING RIOTS IN MONTREAL—THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY BURNT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Canada. ALABMING MOTS IN MONTREAL-THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY BUKNT. The late arrivals from America have re- ported from time to time the increase of excitement and discontent among the "Tory" or "Eoyalist" party in Canada, owing to the passing of the " Eebellion Losses Indemnity Bill." The alleged ob- jection against that measure was that it assigned compensation to many parties who had themselves been implicated in the revolt. By the Europa mail-ship, which left New York on the 2nd, wc learn that this bill received the sanction of the Go- vernor-General, Lord Elgin, on the 25th ult., and that step was made the signal for some serious disturbances. Before the conclusion of the ceremony a crowd, num- bering about 1,500 persons, were collected together, and after the royal sanction had been given to forty-eight bills, amongst which was the obnoxious statute, his Ex- cellency entered his carriage, aud was dri- ven off at a rapid rate, amidst curses, yells, hootings, and a shower of rotten e...
