Mauritius. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
Mauritius. The Friend of India, Sept. 20," says : " We have been much wondering of late at the amenity displayed by the Mauritius papers towards their rulers and each other, but the Madron Athenaeum explains the reason. The produce of the island exceeds by ten thousand tons of sugar, the produce of last year, and the gain to the planters is nearly a quarter of a million sterling. Such a prospect would be enough to re- store smiles to the face even of an indigo planter of Bengal."
California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
California. The latest intelligence from the gold re- gion is up to the 1st July, by way of the United States, and gives but a melancholy picture of the consequences of the first exaggerated accounts of the abundance of the precious metal. The Universal of July 13 gives the fol- lowing passages of a letter written from ¡Placer Stanislaus, dated June the 10th : " I am now here about a fortnight, and am workiug from morning till night, with the crowbar in my hand, without being able to make enough to pay for my very bad dinner. I am sleeping on the bare earth, with the heavens for a canopy. You can have no idea of my sufferings, as the heat during the day is intense and the night very cold. A good deal of snow has fallen «luring the last four nights. I cannot describe to you how deceived we have been with regard to this country. There is as an immense difference between the description and reality as between day and night. Many who came here for no other purpose than to dig gold have ...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei." FE1DTY,1ANUARY 11^18507 THE return of the Champion from the northward, again places us in possession of intelligence from the Géraldine mine of the most hopeful character. The follow- ing extract from the report of Mr. L. Bur- ges, the Superintendent, contains all the particulars : We started for the mine on Thursday evening, 13th, and got there at 10 a.m. on the 19th. In my absence, Eopcr had sunk 2 shafts at tho N.E. end of the mine, but had not succeeded in finding lead. Upon examining the course of the lode to the westward, Mr. Gregory discovered traces about 200 yards from any seen previously in that direc- tion, and upon clearing away, we found a fine vein 2 feet in thickness, a large quantity of zinc, and se- veral specimens of copper ore. I left Roper at work there, with instructions to continue and try and get as far down into the lodo as he could. Mr Grogory, with the assistance of 2 of the men, mode a kind of iough furnace, ...
Western Australian Bank. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
Western Australian Bank. THE half-yearly meeting of the proprie- tors of this establishment was held at the Bank premises, Perth, on Wednesday last. Thomas Helms, Esq. having been called to the chair, briefly explained the purpose of the meeting, and proceeded to read the following report : In presenting their seventeenth report, the Di- rectors have the gratification of renewing their congratulations to the Proprietors, en the con- tinued prosperity of tho Institution committed to their management. Eight years and a half have now elapsed since the first formation of this Bank, a period which has afforded ample opportunity to test the correct- ness of the principles on which it was established; while the division of profit that has been periodi- cally made, during the whole of that term, has been on a scale which must have satisfied the pro- prietary that the Institution offers a good and safe investment for capital. The uncertainty which has prevailed as to the consequences to resu...

The Queen in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
The Queen in Ireland. Her Majesty left Dublin on Friday, Aug 10,un der circumstances such as any monarch might feel justly proud of. The whole line of progross might be considered as if lined with human beings-young and old, rioh and poor,-all manifesting one gone - rous spontaneous feeling of love and loyalty. On the Royal carriage stopping at the Kingston terminus, every hat was doffed along either side of tho platform, and every head was bent forward to catch a glimpse of the Queen. Her Majesty and the Prince were escorted to the water's edge by a distinguished cortege who came down with them, and attended her Majesty to the gangway. Her Majesty took a warm farewell of the distinguished group around her. Amidst the pealing of oannon and the cheers of all, the Queen stepped on board, followed by the Prince, the Boyal children, and suite. The Royal yacht at once moved off, and her Majesty, accompanied by the Prnce Consort and the children, proceeded aft to the elevated space near t...
News by the "Emma Shcrratt." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
News by the Emma Shcrratt." This vessel arrived on Saturday from Batavia and Singapore, having called in at King George's Sound. Contrary to our expectations, she brought only a* few let- ters and newspapers, as although she cal- led at Angier, there was no mail for this colony lying there. Such letters as have been received contain but little public in- telligence relating to this colony, the most important item being that a vessel called the Acadia, 519 tons, was advertised to sail in the middl« of September ; from the size of this vesßel it is probable that by her we shall receive our expected importa- tion of felonry ; nothing is said of any other vessel having been laid on. The few papers we have received, English and Singapore, contain such intelligence as, being older than our previous dates, fill up the gaps of which we complained last week % the latest date is the Economist of 18th Aug. The journals contain little of inte- rest, not even excepting the appearance of some pub...

Quarter Sessions. Wednesday, January 2,1850. The following were three of the cases disposed of at the Sessions : David Patterson, charged with wilful and coi'rupt Perjury. Henry Laroach Cole deposed that in the year 1845, the late Mr. Augustus Bi- dart, owed me a sum of money ; he pro- posed to me to receive the value in hay, to be delivered on his account, by defen- dant ; I assented to this ; sometime after- wards I recollect defendant bringing in a load of hay, in a dray with 2 bullocks ; James Dolbear, who was then in my ser- vice, called me out to look at the hay ; I did so, and asked defendant what he called it, he said "hay," I said I called it sticks and rubbish ; I told him I would not re- ceive it, wc came to high words about it. After some time, at defendants request, I allowed the hay to be placed in my loft ; two years afterwards, defendant, asked me to give him a certificate that I had received the hay for Bidart, in order to produce be- fore the Magistrates at York, w...

Report of the Protector of Natives. Perth, Dec. 31, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 11 January 1850
Report of the Protector of Natives. Perth, Dec. 31, 1849. Sir,-I have the honor to subjoin for His Excellency's information my official Report for the year 1849. It is highly gratifying to remark during that period that the union and kindly feel- ing which has so long subsisted between the white and colored population, have been if possible, more closely cemented, the na- tural consequences of our more frequent communion with the aborigines, their full conviction of our ability to repress outrage, and at the same time of our inclination to benefit and conciliate them by administer- ing to those acquired tastes, (become to them necessities), which a partial civiliza- tion in their intercourse with Europeans has insensibly engendered. Personal outrage on the settler is alto- gether unknown, and, if a few pounds of flour be stolen from a shepherd's hut, or cattle, often unherded and unwatched for months together, be occasionally speared, the instances compared with the tempta- tion are...

Coffee Growing in Java. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850
Coffee Growing in Java. We take from the Economist of 18th of j August, the following description of the system pursued by the Dutch government in the island of Java with regard to coffee growing, furnished by a correspondent of that Journal : The present system of coffee cultivation in Java was introduced by Governor Van der Bosch, in February 1833, when it was declared, that for the future all coffee grown on government land (comprising nearly the whole cultivation as lords paramount of the soil) must be delivered to govern- ment at a fixed price, to be settled every year, and which for the current one was 25 guilders or florins per picul of 125 îbs. Dutch, 136 fcs. English ; from this, 2-5ths or 10 guilders was deducted as rent due government, 3 guilders for transport to seaboard, and 4 per cent commission to the European and native authorities. This system had effect of soon bringing nearly the whole of the coffee cultivation under the control of government. The price now paid t...
