West Indies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
"West Indies. The Governor of Jamaica, it would appear, has not improved his position or materially advanced the views of the Home Govern- ment by dissolving the House of Assembly. The papers which arrived last week by the j Avon left the island in the full excitement of a general election, and brought informa- tion that leaves us in no doubt whatever as to the result of an appeal^to the people. It will be remembered that on the 7th of last month the"House of Assembly, in an- swer to a polite request from Sir Charles Grey to proceed to the dispatch of business, respectfully declined to attend to any business whatever until the great questions of economy and retrenchment were satis- factorily disposed of, inasmuch " as there seemed to be no disposition on the part of her Majesty's government to afford re dress^'urgently prayed for and demanded by the people." The effect of the Parlia- ment's obduracy was its immediate dismis- sal. Sir Charles Grey relying upon the good sense of the e...

Treland[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
¥f «lnnjl The Queen had paid her long promised visit to Ireland, where she remained four days. Her reception was most enthusi- astic, and altogether the affairs of Ireland appear more promising than for some years past. The potato disease had almost en- tirely disappeared, and the crops of all kinds represented as most abundant, but the market rates excessively low. The excellent reception given to Her Majesty had had the effect of inducing the visits of thousands of the English on par- ties of pleasure. The number of visitors to the lakes of Killarney averaged more than one thousand per week. The Nation newspaper had been revi- ved by Mr. Duffy, but its tone is very dif- ferent from what it had been previous to the editor's incarceration. The Roscommon journal states It affords us much gratification in being enabled state that many of the unoccupied farms in this part of our county have already been taken by Eng- lish farmers and agriculturists, and that contractors have commenced ...

United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
United States. The demonstrations in the favour of the cause of liberty, more especially as connect- ed with Hungary, are still continued. The treatment of the Republic's consul at Rome had given a fresh stimulus to the desire to intermingle in international disputes, and the first practical fruits were about to evidenced, when the official attentioned" the President was directed to the proce ings of the parties implicated. In consequence of the President having learned that an armed expedition was being fitted out with the intention of seizing, by force of arms, upon Cuba, aud endeavouring to wrest it from the possession of Spain, its present rightful owner, he issued an official proclamation against the same, and ordered its immediate abandonment. We regret to learn from our present reports that General Taylor has been at- tacked with cholera, and although by the latest accounts he was better, considerable apprehension was felt for his safety. In the pscsent complicated position o...

Canada. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
Canada. The period of the dissolution of all ties between Canada and Great Britain ap- pears to be fast approaching. The arrest of some individuals concerned in the burn- ing of the Houses of Parliament, had oc- casioned fresh outbreaks. Barricades were erected in the streets of Montreal, and swept away by the military, but with a significant forbearance towards the rioters ominous of a secret understanding between them. It is broadly stated that the Go- vernment cannot depend on the troops.

FAREWELL, OLD YEAR! [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
FAREWELL, OLD YEAR! Farewell, Old Year!-when other friends depart, Fond hopo still lingers in the sad adieu, And e'en in absence tells the sorrowing heart That after Fare-thee-well comes How-d'ye-do ! But thou, Old Year, art passing from my sight ; Thy cheerful days, thy happy hours, aro o'er; To memory's dim domain they take their flight, And from her shades they shall return no more ! The summer birds that, with their truant wings, Clave the far ether of a southern sky, Anon return, by bowers and gushing springs, To glad the wild woods with their melody. But they return not-hours of bliss swift stealing Away, away, on pinions bright and pure, E'en in their flight the matchless joys revealing Too fair to last, too lovely to enduro ! In vain, with beating hearts and arma extended, We court their stay, and pray that they may last They glide away, too soon with memories blended, That crowd the precinta of the insatiate past. Thus years roll by, and each and every ono Snatches some tre...
Outrage by the Natives. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
Outrage by the Natives. The Albany mail which arrived on Wednesday, conveyed intelligence of an outrage committed by the natives on the Fitzgerald river, where Capt. Hassell had formed extensive sheep stations. We have been kindly allowed to publish the deposition of the man who first took the intelligence to Al- bany, and whose fright apparently made him ex- aggerate somewhat the probable extent of the na- tives' attack. "The information and complaint of John Wil- liams, a shepherd at Mr. Hassel's station Jerry- mumup, before J. R. Phillips, P. Belches, and H. Camfield, Esqrs., sworn saith, on last Friday week the 30th Nov" a native boy came to me in the bush and sat himself down alongside of me, and while he was eating some bread 1 had given him I got up to look at my sheep which were feeding on a hill, and on my return I missed the native and he must have taken the bag in which my am- munition was, as the bag was gone; in ten minutes after I missed the boy I saw about 12 or 14 na...
BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. IN England everything appears tranquil and prosperous. The harvest was better than for some years past, and a large por- tion of the crops housed in good order. The cholera had made serious havoc in some of the large towns, which had caused a more general attention to cleanliness; the progress of the disease appears to have somewhat abated. Her Majesty, af- ter visiting Ireland, had gone to Balmoral in Scotland from whence she was not ex- pected to return until about the 20th of August. Another frightful murder had been committed in London, a man and his wife, named Manning, having killed a Mr. Connor and buried him in their house. A court-martial was being held on Command- er Pitman, late of H.M.S. Childers, on charges of tyranny and cruelty, which was going much against the defendant. The journals we have received contain only the news of the latter end of August and the commencement of September, leaving us entirely ignorant of what took place be- tween then...
MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. France. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. France. Nothing worthy of notice had occurred m this kingdom, save perhaps an obvious tendency to recur to monarchism in favor of the old Bourbon line. The Congress of the Peace Society had been held in Paris during the month of August, and was well attended by persons from several different counti'ies, but more especially by the Eng- lish, who appear to have been universally well received. Austria.-Hungary. There is nothing positive in the Vienna journals of the 20th with respect to the surrender of Georgey. Some accounts represent that profound dissensions had for some time existed between Kossuth and Georgey. With Georgey 60 superior officers capitulated. In a letter from Warsaw, it is stated the Maygars had still 15,000 men under Bern, 25,000 at Orsowa, Aulich had 6,000 or 8,000 at Balaton, and there was about the same force on the Waag ; but any con- centration of the Hungarian forces was considered impossible. Of Kossuth no- thing certain was known, but it ...
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Voxpopuli, vox Dei." FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 4 January 1850
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei." The announcement of the arrival of a Spanish Man-of-War in our port on Saturday last, caused no little excitement in our &nbsp; generally, unexcitable community more particularly as until the evening no fur- ther intelligence, as to the cause of her visit, could be obtained. She is a fine fri gate of 32 guns with a complement of 220 men. On coming to an anchor she saluted with l8 guns, which compliment, however, it was not in the power of the authorities at Fremantle to return, until Monday morning; but in order to explain this ap- parent discourtesy the Resident R. M'B, Broun, Esq., immediately went off to her, and informed Capt. Quesada of our meagre possessions in the way of ordnance-that what he saw on the Gaol Hill was not a Fort, but merely three or four old guns, only one of which was fit for service, and we verily believe, he might have added there was not sufficient powder at hand, even if there were a sufficiency ...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
To the Editor of the " Independent Journal." Sir,-To possess aducation and ability to use it aright is a blessing ; to have understanding and sense to know right from wrong is a blessing also, and although Solomon said, "all is vanity and vexation of spirit," we find he prayed to bo endowed with w'sdom and understanding, and his prayer was heard. Like the good king 1 also sought for wisdom and understanding, and as with him so with me-the celestial power stretched forth its inspiring hand responsive to my call, said *. seek and ye shall find, seek ye wisdom and understand- ing. Years have brought me wisdom, and with my gray hairs I have understanding: hence I come forward seeking to do good, and animated by that right feeling which ought to rule the mind of man I look to benefit all aluce. Being then so far blest, I am sufficiently bold to make a third appearance, and although not so wise as Solomon of old, I hope that with truth for my motto, I shall be allowed an equal hearing wit...
