THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28,1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 28 December 1849

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL " Vox popuïi, vox Dei." 'FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28,1849. Hts EXCELLENCY'S address at the opening of the Legislative Council last week, can but be considered as neither more nor less than might have been expected from him as Governor of the colony. No person in his senses could for a moment have consi- dered it likely, that he would express any other than a favorable opinion of the mea- sures of the Home Government, which in fact it is his duty to further to the utmost of his power. We have never supposed His Excellency to be to blame for the part he has taken in the obnoxious and vile in- vasion on the rights of the colony, which was the cause of the so-early assembling of the Council. But while thus far ab- solving him, we regret to observe some passages in his address which are most certainly unworthy of him. His Excel- lency refers to the great advantage of this measure in introducing a certain supply of labor without expense to the colony. We must beg to differ...

EDITOE,-Whilst hearing the other night, some young people sing '?.Oh Pilot 'tis a fearful night, There's danger on the Sea," I was forcibly reminded of our dan- gerous position as a body of colonists on Land. The threatened invasion of British rights and British liberty, is advancing with every blast of wind and rolling wave. It is high time for us, as a colony, to look out for vantage ground, and put ourselves into a position of defence-our strong hold, entrenchment and bulwark of de- fence is a pledge on the part of the Home Government, that Western Australia should not be made a Penal Settlement. Under such assurance and pledge we prepared to leave our fatherland, "our native Isle," with our wives and families, servants and ...

Metallic Deposits of the Malay Peninsula. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 28 December 1849

Metallic Deposits of the Malay Pe- ninsula. AT a time, when the questions of a sup- ply of metals, the increase of commerce, and the extension of intercourse between the shores of India and the Australian colonies are engaging attention, informa- tion respecting the probable opportunity of making these subjects available to the latter countries may bo desirable, In the following notes, therefore, collected from authentic sources, this information is in part supplied by the journal of the Indian Archipelago and Eastern Asia. It is a fact well known to geologists, that the junction of sedimentary deposits with plutonic rocks (viz., igneous rocks, such as granite, perphory, &c, distinct from what are more appropriately called volcanic) is very frequently the site of me- tallic- products. This fact so commonly observed in Europe and America is not without its parallels in Asia and Austra- lasia. In the Malayen Peninsula it is most strikingly exhibited. There ai'e certain ores in...

Miscellaneous. NOBODY INQUIRES ABOUT CONVICT CO- LONIES.-Mr. H. Dowling, of Launceston Bent to England a number of Wood's Van Diemen's Land Almanacs (the best publi- cation of the kind issued in these colonies) for sale. The friend to whom they were entrusted went to consult Mr. Cross, the publisher, when that gentleman said " Why, sir, I fear there is nothing to be done with them ; Yan Diemen's Land, you are perhaps not aware, has for many years ceased to be a place for emigrants to resort to. It has of late years been inundated with convicts, so that all the free people are running away as fase as they can. Nobody in England now in- quires about Van Diemen's Land. Now, if the almanac had been a South Austra- lian one, we could have pushed it off." Of course every colony to which convicts are sent must cease to be a place to which emigrants will go.

W. A. Mininer Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 28 December 1849

W. A. Mining Association. THE meeting of the Mining Association held on the 19th instant, owing to the crowded state of our columns, was noticed little more than by our giving the reports of the Committee and Mr. Eorbes, and the resolutions passed. We shall now give a short detail of the " sayings " upon the occasion. Mr. Samson having been called to the chair, opened the meeting detailing the operations of the Committee, and, alluding to a remark made at the previous meeting, that they had done little or nothing since they had taken office, said they had drawn up a general report of the proceedings of the Association since its formation, as the best method of refuting the aspersions cast upon the committee, lie believed this do- cument would satisfactorily show that, al- though from many circumstances the com- mittee had it in their power to do but lit- tle, that little had been done. The recom- mendation of a call of Is. per share, was but a suggestion on the part of the Com- mitt...

Miscellaneous. THE WESLEYAN SCHISM.-A crowded meeting was held on Tuesday night, in the Broadmead Rooms, Bristol. Mr. J. Copp in the chair. The chairman explained the object of the meeting to be to take into consideration the cause of expulsion from conference of the Revs. J. Everett, J. Dunn, and W. Griffith, jun. Several gentlemen addressed the meeting; and resolutions, for removing the sentence of expulsion passed upon the rev. gentlemen, and pledging the meeting to use all pro- per means to get the obnoxious resolution of the Conference of 1849 rescinded, were carried unanimously, and a subscription was opened for the expelled members. Letters from Tricóla, capital of Thessa lonia, announce a faightful havoc, experi- enced on the 1st inst., by fire. No less than 320 houses, 640 shops, with the whole of the location of the Jews, have fallen a prey to the flames. It is also thought that the act was committed by a band of incendiaries.

English Visit to Paris. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850

English Visit to Paris. Monday, the 27th August, 1849, will assuredly rest in the recollections of the English, who, whether as members of the Peace Congress, or from any other motive, happened to be in Paris on that day. Political questions being laid aside, we have now to occupy ourselves with the agreeable duty oí recording some evidence of the good feeling manifested by all classes of the Parisian people to their Eng- lish visitors. We must be allowed to say English par excellence, because of their immense numerical preponderance over foreigners of all other countries. Marks of attention from ministers and other per- sonages have already been mentioned, but notwithstandingtheir unquestionable value they fall far short in importance when compared with the genial attention and marvellous tact and politeness shown yes- terday by the population of Paris and its environs, collected at Versailles for sake of feting the members of the Peace Con gress.

East India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850

East India. The latest intelligence from India re- ceived in England was up to 25th July. All was perfectly tranquil. We gather the following few items. Commodore Lushington has been ap- pointed Commander in chief of the Indian Navy. On the 22nd and 23rd June a severe gale visited the upper part of the Bay of Bengal. Three vessels were wrecked and a number of lives lost. The Bishop of Calcutta had been suffer- ing severely from sickness. THE PUNJAUB. The trial of Moolraj, which was in progress at the date of our last, has now been brought to a conclusion; the illustrious traitor has been found ? guilty of the murder of Messrs. Agnew and Ander- son, and of complicity before and after the fact. He was sentenced to death by Court, butrecom mended to mercy as the victim of circumstances, and the sentence has been commuted into impri- sonment for life in the fort of Chuñar-a penalty which in course of time may yet be further miti- gated. From the evidence given on the trial, it appesrs t...
