The Story of Koompanee Jehan. (From Ptmeh.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 23 November 1849

The Story of Koompanee Jehan. (From Ptmeh.y Some time after the death of Aurung zebe, a mighty prince held domination over India, from the seven mouths of the Ganges to the five tails of the Indus, who was renowned above most other monarchs for his strength, riches, and wisdom. His name was Koompanee Jehan. Although this monarch had innumerable magnificent palaces at Delhi and Agra, at Benares, Boggleywollah, and Ahmednuggar, his common residence was in the beautiful is- land of Ingleez, in the midst of the capital of which, the famous city of Lundoon, Koompanee Jehan had a superb castle. It was called the Hall of Lead, and stood at the foot of the mountain of Corn, close by the verdure-covered banks of the silvery Tameez, where the cypresses wave and the zendewans or nightingales love to sing. In this palace he sate and gave his orders to govern the multitudinous tribes which paid him tribute from the Cashmerian tills to the plains watered by the Irra waddy. The great Koompanee Jeh...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. *c Voxpopuli, vox DeU ^RIDAY^NOVBMBE^ 30,1849. VWWWW» THE time is arrived when it has become imperatively necessary for every true set- tler in this colony--every right-thinking and honest man within its boundaries every right-hearted well-wisher without, to be up and doing. Western Australia, colonised by free Britons on the faith of a pledge by the Home Government, in the year 1829, that it should ever be free from the foul taint of CONVICTISM, in defiance of all honor, truth, and justice, is declared to be a PENAL SETTLEMENT in 1849-a place wherein to cast loose the pollution of Britain, to begin a fresh career of crime and outrage upon the defenceless inhabi- tants. Although in many particulars the mother country has broken faith with the original colonists during the past twenty years, that glorious right of freedom from convictism had been held inviolate, it was reserved for Earl Grey-the liberal, the honorable Earl Grey-to consummate the wrongs of the...

Gold. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

Gold. The Mining Journal has the following remarks on the subject of gold production, respecting which much popular error pre- vails : There is no such thing as " gold ore," properly speaking. The term " ore " is understood by me- tals in a mineralised condition from chemical con- tact with some of the more generally diffused acids oxygen, &c.-such as sulphuret, carbonate, or ox- ides of copper, sulphuret of iron, mercury, lead, &c. These are almost uniformly found in cracks or fissures in the primitive formations, granite, clay, slate, &c., running north and south, diverging but little from the magnetic meridian, and at right angles thereto, or east and we3t ; which fissures have, no doubt, been filled, end are continually filling, with mineralised mattez from the effects of galvanic action. Gold is always found in its pure and native state ; and however Jif.rd the enveloping matrix, and however impalpably fine the grains of the precious metal may be, it is ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

Local Intelligence. The Timber lying on the beach at Fort Augusta, has been purchased by Messrs. Shenton and Da- vey, and we understand those gentlemen will pro- bably cut 150 loads more in the same locality so as to make up a cargo. His Excellency, accompanied by Mr. F. Witte- noom, left town on Wednesday, in order to make an inspection of the roads. The effects of road making have been strongly exemplified during the present wool season, by the great quantity of that commodity conveyed into Perth by drays, instead of, as formerly, leaving it at Guildford, to bo for- warded by boat. Some little apprehension is entertained for the safety of the Emma S/ierratt, which vessel ought to have arrived here a week or two since ; how- ever, as the vessel was to proceed from Batavia to Macassar, some extra delay might have occurred, or, it is possible, that the master, finding that he could not dispose of his cargo of sandal-wood, has proceeded on to China. The Legislative Council will, we un...

Borneo. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

Borneo* In a recent work on Borneo, by Mr. Low, formerly Private Secretary to Sir James Brooke and now Colonial Secretary of Labuan, he makes the following remarks on the mineral products of Borneo : " Next in abundance to the coal, as far as is yet known, is the antimony ore. Iron, in various forms, is found in abundance over the whole island. Tin has been re- cently discovered in the alluvial soil in the country of the Suntah Dyaks, on the east- ern confines of the Sarawak territory. Nickel is found over the whole, territory of Sarawak, in the tin and gold districts. Quicksilver is known to exist in several parts of the island ; but has not yet been obtained in sufficient quantities to render it an article of exportation. Of the pre- cious metals, gold is abundant. The dia- monds of Borneo have long been celebra- ted as equal to any from India, or Brazil, in abundance and beauty." From a cal- culation recently made, it appears that the number of Chinese employed in the gold mines ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. CONVICTS.-It is understood that the Bishop of Cape Town has called a convo- cation of the clergy of the English Church to take the present danger which threatens the religious and moral character of the colony into consideration. STABTLINO INCIDENT OF MOUNTAIN TEAYEL.-Early in the summer of 1846, two Englishmen were travelling in an open carriage in the south-east of Eranco. "Whilst descending a mountain of terrific steepness, down the side of which the road wound in a zig-zag fashion, the wheel got jerked out of the skidpan or drag, and the horses gradually increased their pace, flew at full speed down the almost precipitous road. The travellers perceiving the awful danger to which they were exposed, throw themselves down at the bottom of the car- riage. Suddenly the leading horses shied at some object before them, and instantly dashed over the low wall at the side of the road, followed by the others, while the postilion threw himself on the ground. Down below was...

The Isthmus of Panama. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

The Isthmus of Panama. The report to the United States Con- gress by the Committee on Naval Affairs regarding the Panama Eailroad, mentions that the concession obtained from the Go- vernment of New Granada is for forty-nine years, with right of purchase on the part of that Government at the expiration of twenty years. The committee point out that the cost of such a road in a tropical climate would render Government aid es- sential to the projectors, while, at the same time, the interests of America, especially as regards the advantages it would give her over all competitors in the trade with China, India, and the Eastern Archipelago, are such as to demand the efforts of the legislature to promote the rapid execution of the work. The committee estimate that by the time the road is completed (namely three years), the population of California will amount to half-a-million, and that be- fore long "fleets of steam ships," will spread over the Pacific, " whose quiet wa- ters seem to indic...

California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 30 November 1849

California. OF the discovery of the gold, the follow- ing account is given by Professor Ansted, in the words of Captain Sutter, a Swiss gentleman, who- was the first in the field : " I was sitting one afternoon," said the Captain, "just after the siesta, engaged, by-the-bye, in writing a letter to a relation of mine at Lucerne, when I was inter- rupted by Mr. Marshall-a gentleman with whom I had frequent business trans- actions-bursting hurriedly into the room. Prom the unusual agitation in his manner I imagined that something serious had occurred, and, as we involuntarily do in this part of the world, I at once glanced to see if my rifle was in its proper place. When he had recovered himself a little, he told me that, however great my surprise might be at his unexpected appearance, it would be much greater when I heard the intelligence he had to bring me. ' Intelli- gence,' he added, ' which, if properly pro- fited by, would put both of us in posses- sion of unheard of wealth-milli...
