Extraordinary Disclosures. BANKRUPTCY COURT, BASINGHALL ST. IN THE BANKRUPTCY OF MR. JOHN BULL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 25 March 1848
Extraordinary Disclosures. Bankruptcy Coubt; Basinghall St. in the bankruptcy of mb. john bull. The bankrupt, who was formerly in an extensive way of business, appeared for the purpose of passing his examination uuder the flat lately issued against him. The court Was thronged with clamorous and irritated creditors, and the learned Commissioner was astounded at the dis- closures made by the balance-sheet and the bankrupt's books. The bankrupt himself appeared but little sensible of the disgrace attending his situation, and when questioned as to the causes of his failure ne persisted in referring it wholly to Peel's Bill and the defective state of the cur- rency. He was closely examined by the Cpmmissoner, and his answers occasionally created some amusement/ The debts in his balance appearing to amount to the incredible sum of about £800,000,000, he was asked how he came to pursue a course of such reckless extra- vagance, and what prospect he had ever entertained of being able to pay ...

LATE ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. TO THE 18TH DECEMBER. Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 25 March 1848
UTE ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.' To the 18th December. Miscellaneous. The "new Parliament was opened by commission on the 18th Nov. The Hon. C. S. Levre was again chosen speaker, with many flattering encomiums on the manner in which he had before conducted the business of the House of Commons, both by those differing in political opin- ions from him, as well as by those agreeing in that point with his views, which are Whig. Baron .Rothschild had not taken his seat, but a discussion had arisen on the question of the Jewish disabilities, and from the majority gained in favor of their being abrogated, a bill was to be intro- duced for that purpose. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Har- court, is dead, and the Bishop of Here- ford, Dr. Musgrave, was advanced to the dignity of Archbishop. The seo, of Here- ford is to be given to Dr. Hampden, Regius Professor at Oxford, although much disapprobation to his appointment had been expressed by the clergy on the score of fche non-orthodoxy of his op...
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vor populi, vor Dsi" SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 25 March 1848
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL, " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" ^ATTOlSrMARCH"25ri848. By the arrivai of the Orient, after a re- markably quick passage from Plymouth, which place ehe left on the 21st of Dec. last, we have received English intelligence up to that date. The most important mat- ter-the unfortunate commercial crisis, we have endeavored to glean every infor- mation upon ; in addition to the long list of failures of houses of long establish- ed credit, many others are reported, but we have not sufficient space for detailing them; by the latest dates, however, it appears that confidence is again being restored, although it is evident it will be long ere business returns to its before usual routine. We have, in an other place, given full extracts descriptive of the turning point, and, therefore, have no TfieëoS to*deeate fucfchejt oh 'this distressing ; topic, save, .perhaps; to intimate our fears that even in this remote corner of the globe, the consequences of the utter de- rangement of c...

Miscellaneous. Mr. H. J. Prescott has been elected to the office of Deputy-Governor of the Bank of England ; vacant by the recent appoint- ment of Mr Morris to the Governor- ship. A company is to be formed for pur- chasing the Great Britain, and placing her on the Liverpool and New Orleans trade" She is still on the gridiron in the Prince's Basin. The whole of the Coast Guard are being trained in gunnery for the defence of the coast. The force numbers 6,000; 2,500 of whom are stationed from the Thames to the Land's End. It is reported in Dublin that an " Lush Auxiliary Legion" is about to be raised, with permission of Government, to assist the Pope. A gun for the purpose of projecting harpoons into whales has been invented in America ; and also a bomb-lance, which, on being fired into a whale, explodeB and kills the animal.

LATE ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 April 1848
LATE ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The sufferings of the lower classes in England during the ensuing winter, conse- quent on the general suspension of public works and the stoppage of manufacturing enterprise, were expected to be of unex- ampled severity ; on this subject, we find many remarks ni the public journals. The Monthly Times, of Nov. 7, has the follow- ing: The operatives in Lancashire are already suffering much privation; and numbers from railways in projection will be thrown out of employ. The Government have strengthened the constabulary in that neighbourhood by large drafts from the Metropolitan police force. The monetary difficulties of the times have scarcely developed their disastrous results among these industrial classes of the social fabric ; and it is fearful to contemplate' the diffi- culties in prospect which must be encoun- tered during the approaching winter. The community here have been surprised at the magnitude of the liabilities exhibited in the accounts of suspende...

The following is an extract of a dispatch recei- ved from the Secretary of State relative to making provision by law for the summary conviction and punishment of Aborigines : " I concur with you in thinking that provision ought to be made by Law, for the summary con- viction und punishment of the Natives, for all of fenceB not of the most serious character. But the propriety of such a change in the Law, will depend on the nature and the sufficiency of the securities which it may be possible to take against the abuse of the power of summary punishment. There is, obviously, great danger of abuse either, from the absence of...
Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 April 1848
Local Intelligence. Mr. "Wilson, who has left for Madras, by the Orient, intends to proceed to Calcutta, for the purpose of organizing a company for the exportation of the ship and build- ing timber of this colony. The Govern- ment have conceded to him a lease for ten years of a considerable tract of land, the es- tablished license being to be paid for every pairkof sawyers employed. It is understood the company will be formed in about eighteen months, and one-tenth of the shares are to be reserved for residents in the colony. The hill districts have lately been visit- ed by some heavy storms of hail and rain ; the hail-stones which fell in the Northam district are reported to have been of an unusually large size. The Williams river is also reported to have been so much swollen that Mr. Bland and Dr. von Som- mer, proceeding to K. ' G. Sound, found considerable difficulty in crossing it. The swelling of this river at so eariy a period is said to be so unusual an occurrence as to hav...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 April 1848
To the Editor of the " Independent Journal." Sir,-Let me call the attention of those Black- smiths willing to remove to the York district, to the advertisement in your paper this day. The loss of time and expense incurred in York from the scarcity and want of more Blacksmiths and Horae shoers, is beyond measure. Teams from every corner of the district flock in there-every horse that travels the York road is taken there to be shod-taken to one only shop,' where there is one only man to' make the shoes and Bhoe the horses. Hence arises the delay which almost every one so materially feels. It is not alone that the owner of the team suf- fers through this delay, so injurious to the colony at large, but the animals themselves suffer. It is the sorest trial our horses undergo. They are ta- ken to the forge, where they stand for three, six, and nine hours at one spell-starving all the while, before the shoer, from press for time and too much work, can touch them. - At this moment there is ...
Ether Superseded—New Ana[?]sthetic Agent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 April 1848
Ether Superseded-New Anaesthe- tic Agent. Ether inhalation, which promised to impart such an invaluable aid to surgical science, had not been in use for tweve months, when another far more effective ansesthetic agent has been discovered, for which we are indebted to Professor Simp- son, viz, chloroform, or the Perchloride of Eormyle. The composition of chloroform was first actually ascertained by Dumas, the clebrated Ereneh chemist, in 1835, but Souberain and Liebig had previously been engaged in similar investigations, and so far with success. These inquiries, how- ever, were solely directed with a view to the extension of the chemical science. " They had (observed Professor Simpson) no idea that the substance to which they called the attention of their chemical bre theren could or would be turned to any practical purpose, or that it possessed any physiological or therapeutic effects upon the animal economy." To Professor Simpson, therefore, belongs the honour of discovering its wo...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. '? Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAYTAPEnTsTlSl«. "We have to apologise to our subscribers for the non-appearance of our Journal on Saturday last, occasioned by an untoward accident to the press on the afternoon of that day, while the paper was being worked ; a portion of a brick wall above the press fell in and caused considerable injury, which, however, has been ably re- paired by Mr. Nairne. In a late number, our contemporary has some pathetic remarks relative to the con- solidation of the offices of Begistrar of Deeds and Clerk in the Survey Office. "We rather differ from him in opinion concern- ing the reduction of the salary of the Be- gistrar of Deeds-we are inclined to think it a very salutary measure, and one called for long since. The colonists have too long been paying ¿6100 per annum for this office, in which we will venture to affirm, there is not 100 hours work throughout the year, and we believe they will scarcely agree with our contemporary in t...
The Swiss Quarrel. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 April 1848
The Swiss Quarrel. The following may be taken as a brief statement of the facts and causes of this singular war. The Sunderbund (or league of Catholic Cantons) having (as they con- ceive, by a right of internal or municipal government secured for them by the treaty of Vienna,) entrusted the supervision of public instruction to the Jesuits, were remonstrated with by the Protestant Cantons, who accused the Jesuits of in- triguing, &c, and required to have them expelled by the Cantons in which they were located. This the latter refused to do, because they maintained they had a right to manage their own internal or municipal affairs, independent of the other states of the republic, or even a majority of the Diet, or general congress of the whole. There was a further cause of dif- ference between the Protestant and Bo man Catholic Cantons :-the Protestants are in favour of a more centralised form of government for the Helveric Union: they want to have Switzerland less can- tonal ...
