Central Europe. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Central Europe. The King of Prussia has wisely refused the Imperial Crown of Central Germany. Many of the States included in the pro- posed confederation are a prey to anarchists or writhing under positive grievances. Nothing approaching to internal peace or federal union is observable. The insurrection in Baden and the com- motions in Bavaria had lost nothing of their serious and alarming character ; and as the King of Prussia was making a large military demonstration in favor of the Ba- den and Bavarian, princes, it was expected the Prussian and Bavarian troops would soon come into collision. HINGABT. The Hungarians, who seem determined to restablish their nationality, had by their Parliamentary resolutions passed on the 14th April, renounced their allegiance to the House of Hapsburg-Lorraine. Nothing could exceed the sensation produced at .Vienna by the promulgation of the resolu- tions, and a knowledge of the fact that the Hungarian Upper House had unanimously concurred. The mil...

Italy. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 November 1849
Italy. On the 24th April a steamer, bearing the Eepublican flag, entered the harbour and landed two officers with a special mis- sion to the Governor. It speedily trans- pired that the emissaries came to announce the coming of the Erench army, and to be- speak, under plausible pretences, a friendly reception from the Eoman people. .The amicable overtures were, however, accom- panied by a threat that, if they were hos tileiy received, or a single shot fired, Ge- neral Oudinot was determined to land in spite of every obstacle, and to levy a fine of 1,200,000 francs. The Governor of Civita Vecchia demandedtwenty-four hours for consideration, which was refused, and the French steamer left the port to com- municate with the Erench armada. The steamer gone, the " town in danger," as- sembled its advisers, and they began by sending an estafette to Eome. The Na- tional Guard said (by their mouthpieces) that they were in arms to defend thoir property ; the Free Corps said they were ready to ...

West Indies. At Demerara the supplies were still stopped, and the public officers unpaid. A bill for liberalizing the franchise and better regulating its exercise had been in- troduced in the Court of Policy. ..At Span- ish Town, in Jamaica, a great meeting was held on the 24th May, the Bishop of the island, and Santa Anna, the late Mexican Dictator, being leading promoters, to con- sider the effect produced on Jamaica " by the non observance of the treaties for the suppression of the slave trade, by which Spain and Brazil are bound .to her Majes- ty, and the devising of such measures as may tend to promote at once the great in- terests of humanity and the relief of the intertropical possessions of the Crown from the deep distress in which they aie now involved."...In Barbadoes, the Import-du- ty Bill continued suspended. Smallpox had been ravaging this Island.

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
Cape of Good Hope. An address to the people of England had been drawn up and circulated, and it was seriously proposed to resist the dis- embarkation of any convicts who'might arrive. Two adventurous traders (Messrs Hart- ley and Jolly) lately returned to Graham's Town after penetrating into the tropical interior. Hartley, who had been absent nearly two years, brought with him about 5000 lbs. of ivory, for which he readily ob- tained from 4s. to 4s. l-J-d. per lb. Amongst tlie manufactured articles, in addition to the usual varieties of beautiful fur mantles (karosses), there were some very hand- some ladies' tippets ingeniously made of the feathers of birds, the various plumage so disposed as to have a very agreeable effect. Every article realised a handsome price, the total amount of sale being about £1500. Mr. Jolly brought down also a quantity of ivory, a considerable lot of ostrich feathers, and a number of skins of various animals ; amongst them two of the boa constrictor, one...
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" IT will be seen by our extracts from the Government Gazette, that the fiat has gone forth-that Western Australia is now a PENAL SETTLEMENT, and that too, be it re- membered, without a correspondent in- crease of public expenditure on the part of the Home Government, to render this bit- ter pill palatable to our colonists. We hope the convict party and their organ, to whom we are indebted for this boon (?), are satisfied with the degradation and in- famy they have procured for their adopted country. We never doubted the willing- ness of the Home Government to send us convicts, but we repeatedly warned the ad- vocates of the odious measure, that other- wise than an increase of crime together with the labour, no advantage would ac- crue from it. When his Excellency first proposed to send for 100 Pentonvillians, to be accompanied by their toives and fami- lies, and the proposal was so eagerly re- ceived by tho settlers, we believed, the con...
The New Constitution for the Australian Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
The New Constitution for the Aus- tralian Colonies. Our limited space not admitting our presenting our readers willi the complete bill lately introduced into tlie House of Commons, for the purpose of granting constitutions lo these colonies, we give Mr. Hawes' speech on bringing it forward, which, in effect, is a masterly summary of Hie measure. Mr. Hawes said " The bill had been framed with a view lo meet the wishes of the colonists, and ii proceeded as far as possible upon the basis of the constitution which at present ex- ited in New South "Wales. In July, 1847, his Noble friend the Secretary of Stale for the colonies addressed a despatch to the Governor of New South Wales, rais- ing the question of a now constitution for the colony, and pointing to the constitu- tion which had been conferred upon New Zealand as the model upou which it should be framed. The colonists having in vari- ous ways intimated their opinion that any alteration of the existing constitution would be unaccep...

New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
New South Wales. In a former publication, we noticed the intention to hold a public meeting in the elder colony, in consequence of the arrival of the Uashcmy with a cargo of convicts. The meeting took place, as intended, and the proceedings are thus described in the (Sydney) Christian Standard: "The speeches delivered, the protest adopted, and the resolutions which were unanimously passed by more than five thousand free and determined men, are al- ready matters of history. Not a word was spoken, not a syllable uttered, in the least degree inappropriate. The feelings of the immense mass congregated on Mon day wore deeply and interestedly concern- ed. The country's welfare and character, the moral purity of the community, tho common cause of religion, were all involved in the measure against which they met to protest. The horrid monster-vice-with which they had been threatened, was no longer confined to despatches-to pen, ink, and paper ; but lay before their eyes, floating on the wat...

Horse Rearing Company. THE adjourned meeting to take into considera- tion the best plan to promote the formation of a Horse Rearing Establishment in this colony, in conjunction with India, was held on Wednesday, J. W. Hardey, Esq. in tho chair. Mr. Yule said he regretted to observe ho was little moro prepared than at the last moeting, not having yet received all the returns he required to perfect his plan. He much regretted the absence of Mr. Brockman; as he had wished to reply in his presence to some observations he had made as to the poison plant. Mr. Brockman was a large horse breeder, and had had 20 years experience in the colony, but ho thought his experience did not confirm his apprehensions, he had not, ho belie- ved, ever lost a horse from eating that plant, nor so far as he could ascertain had any man in the co- lony. He would state a case iu proof that this plant was innocuous to horses ; Some years since Dr. Harris in conjunction with Mr. Drummond, made a strong decoction...
GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. Under the heading of " The Navy Tim- ber Question," The Builder has the fol- lowing judicious remarks : " As timber and woods of greater dura- bility are abundant in our colonies, would it not be a wise measure to export our redundant population, and bring back freights of timber from Australia and New Zealand ? By sending out saw-mills, the choicest products ot those colonial forests might be cut into scantling adapted to dockyard occasions, and be sent in return ships. By such means useful colonists might be conveyed to improve our colonies abroad, and to lighten the consumption at home; an immense tract of cultivation might be added to the insufficient breadth of crop now grown at home ; a considera- ble saving would be effected in boards, commissioners, and fruitless expenses; and, at the same time, a large revenue would accrue to the state from the leases or grants, at feurrents, of something like 500,000 acres, which are now only used as t...
Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
Ireland. HAKVEST PROSPECTS.-The agricultural reports of the state of the growing crops are extremely favorable, and as the weather remains dry and bright, there is ground for hope that the coming harvest may be more productive than could have been ex- pected from the nature of the accounts re- presenting the vast quantities of land out of cultivation this year. In some districts, however, the peasantry have again staked their all in the prospect of a profitable po- tato-crop, and again are the symptoms ap- parent of their hopes being disappointed by a fourth failure, which, if realised, must lead to results far more disastrous than any that have yet been experienced. WASTE LANDS IN ULSTEB.-By various statements in the Ulster journals it ap- pears that seven townlands, extending nearly three miles, near Benburb, are now totally unoccupied, having been abandoned by the population. The Galway Vindicator states that the deaths in the Ballinasloe workhouses in one week amounted to the fr...
South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 November 1849
South Australia. Capt. Sturt, the intrepid explorer of Central Australia, had returned from Eng- land, with a commission as Colonial Secre- tary. The journals we have received from tkis province by the lato arrivals, present but an unfavorable picture of the state of "so- ciety there, being mainly filled with law and police reports'. At one sitting there were noiess than nine actions for libel on the cause list for trial! some of them news- paper and other private actions, besides an infinity of other cases. The quarterly re- port of the Commissioner of Police, also shows that an extraordinary degree of crime prevails, it appearing that during the quarter ending 30th «Tune, no less than 74 cases of felony had come to the knowledge oí the police, which number wat« even n decrease of twelve upon tho previous quar- ter; during the same period 300 persons wore apprehended, of whom 331 wore for drunkenness and other minor offences, and 59 for moro serious crimes.
