Latest from China. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
Latest from China. The Hongkong Eegister thus writes on the state of Chinese affairs in relation to Great Britain : The Emperor Repudiates, in the Name of the people of Canton, the entire Con- vention ofQth April, 1847. " We have reason to know that the ques- tion referred to Pekin in pursuance of the arrangement of the 17th february, was practically this. Not merely whether the empty privilege of entering the city of Canton, was or was not to be conceded to us on the 6th April; but whether the Chinese Government were prepared to carry out in its entire length and breadth, the convention entered into by its accredi- ted representative in April, 1847. "If so, the British Government claimed the right of entering Canton on the day appointed ; deeming it best to put that question for- ward as a pioneer, first, because of the high political character with which the circumstances had invested it ; and se-" condly, because it was the. question best calculated to test the faith of the Chine...
Australian Cotton. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
Australian Cotton. THE Maitland Mercury contains the fol- lowing information with respect to the progress of the cotton growing experiments in New South "Wales:-"We have been favored with a sample of cotton grown at Dempsey'» ' Island, Hunter Uiver, near Newcastle, by Mr. Martin Richardson. It is of a beautiful white colour, scarcely so silky in gloss as the Bolwarra white cotton, but of a soft clastic woolley fool and tex- ture. To our apprehension this cotton resembles very much the better kinds of American cotton imported into Liverpool, but appears of finer quality and more silky than most of it. The seed from which this cotton was produced was some of that brought.by Dr. Harrington from America, and was planted in a similar manner to maize, and little more care has been taken in its cultivation. There are no seeds in the sample sent to us, and our correspond- ent does not say whether they were diffi- cult of extraction or the contrary, or what their colour was. In regard to the...

Emigration.—Our Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
Emigration.--Our Colonies. It continually happens that persons wishing to emigrate to the colonies are cu- rious to know where they can obtain a good account of the British dependencies. To collect a library of colonial works, is not only costly, but often useless. The worth of these productions necessarily dif- fers as much as the intelligence, integrity, bias, and experience of their authors. One man writes in a pet against the Colonial office at home, another against the Colo- nial Government abroad ; one man is dis- appointed because he did not return home in a few years with a large fortune, an- other is soured because he lost in the co- lony all that he took out. The pens of both are tipped with gall. Another has been tolerably fortunate, and he is natu- rally sanguine. He describes everything in roseate hues, and with extravagant hope- fulness. It is not sufficient for him to specify the great and undoubted merits of his pet colony ; he magnifies all its exist- ing, and affir...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei." TFEIDAY^NOVEMBÍR16,TisZd" THE announcement that this colony has been made a Penal settlement, as might have been expected, has caused no little excitement and discussion. Numberless, are the indignant and bitter remarks we have heard upon the subject-upon the breach of faith on the part of the Home Government, by which the pledge made on the foundation of the colony, has by the infamous trickery of Earl Grey been trampled upon and set at nought. Now that the deed has been done-that the disgrace has been inflicted, the great body of the settlers declaim against it; now they seo the effect of their criminal supine ness, when the few convict advocates agi- tated the question some months since; why was not then a strenuous stand made against the shameless proposition ? soon will they feel the effects of their holding aloof when the public meeting was called for its discussion, and suffering a few sel- fish discontented individuals to give...
California Outdone. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
California Outdone. The gold discoveries in California will be nothing if the report which is in circu- lation in England is verified. The editor of the Liverpool Albion says it is nothing to what is asserted by an iron-founder in Liverpool : " This gentleman must have discovered the true philosopher's stone, which so many sages of the olden time spent their lives in trying to obtain. He declares that he has found out a process by which ho can change any quantity of iron into gold. Before three months are over, ho says, wc shall hear more of this marvel. He promises to produce gold in tons ; in short, in any quantity. Those -who are thinking of a voyage to California had better pause, for the produce of the diggings will, when this wonderful discovery is brought to light, and its effects realised to the world, be va- lueless. The Government had better, also, take into timely consideration how they will estimate the amount of the national debt ; and as to gold hoarders, they had bett...

The Colonial Land and Emigration Commission. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
The Colonial Land and Emigration Commission. The ninth general report of this com- mission to the Colonial Secrotary of State was published on Saturday. It is dated the 17th of May, 1849. The commission- er's notice the increase of emigration since the year 1846, when the number of emi- grants amounted to 129,851, whereas in 1847 it rose to 258,270 persons, and in 1848 to 248,089. The total emigration to North America in that year was 219, 298, but of these 188,233 proceeded to the United States, and only 31,065 to the Bri- tish colonies. Of the emigrants to America 59,675 went from Ireland, and 129,576 also Irish-from Liverpool, making a grand total of 189,251 Irish emigrants. It appears that the Irish already settled in America are very liberal in their ad- vances of money to friends and relations at home to enable the latter to emigrate likewise. It has been ascertained that the amount paid in the United States for passages, or remitted through houses in Liverpool and in Ireland,...

Australian Wines. From the Geelong Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
Australian Wines. From the Geelong Advertiser. THE advancement of a colony must main- ly depend upon its exports ; or, by the de- velopment of its resources and capabilities, in the production of articles of commerce previously imported for the supply of its own population. This is a fundamental maxim in political economy which none will dispute. A large sum is annually paid for foreign wines and brandies imported. Of these two articles of consumption, the balance of trade is agaiust us. It is there- fore with pleasure that we have perused in the Maitland Mercury of a recent date, a report of the proceedings of the Hunters Uiver Vineyard Association. The inter- esting proceedings, the samples of wine exhibited and tasted, and the reports of the several wine-growers, are too long for extraction in our columns. The wines were of various kinds, and of fine flavour, and there can be no question but that they will, at no very distant day, supersede the necessity for imported wines, by af...
GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. In the parish church of Fen Ditton, near Cambridge, Edward Smith, a gardener and fiddler, did penance last Sunday, un- der sentence of Sir Herbert Jenner Fust in the Ecclesiastical Court, for slandering Mrs Martha Jones, the Ecctor's wife, by accusing her of adultery. The ceremony was made the occasion of scandalous out- rages by an irreverent assemblage of " bargees " and persons of bad character who collected from all neighbouring parts and tumultuously occupied a large part of the church. Men climbed up the columns of the building and sat on the capitals, and a number bestrode the screen. The Sec- tor and his slandered wife occupied the Sector's pew. " Mr. Small, the officiating clergyman," says the account in the Times, "was greeted with a shout, 'Speak up, old boy!' accompanied by a chorus of laughter. The sermon was interrupted by the breaking of windows by the mob out- side the church, by catcalls, whistling, and other unseemly noises, an...
Convicts.—Penal Settlements. From the Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 November 1849
Convicts.-Penal Settlements. From the Times. "Lord Mahon's motion has elicited from the Home Secretary the following account of transportation, as it is at present carried out. In the first place we infer that when- ever the sentence of transportation is pro- nounced by a judge, it will be duly execu- ted. There will be no living seven years in the hulks at home. Next, we collect that every convict will be transported for the full period of his sentence, instead of being sent home again when it has been half-completed. Next that transportation will be resumed. But the essential change in the system comprehends two new stages ; first, the convict, previous to transportation is to undergo a degree of solitary confine- ment in Portland or Wakefield, then he is to be put on the public works at home or near home, as at Gibralta or Bermuda, for wages, and then he is to buy his ticket of leave with a specified sum-viz, £15. By this ticket he will be enabled to seek for employment in the Au...
