California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

California. The Boston Times supplies the following accounts of this land of promise : " We aro indebted to Mr. Jarvis, of this city, who was a passenger in the Orescent City, for many interesting facts in regard to the state of things in California, which arc not furnished by the newspapers. The number of arrivals of passengers at San Francisco in June, by sea, was about 1000 per week. By land, at the mines, from Lower California, Sanora, Durango, and Mexico generally, the immigration is com- puted at 15,000, with many thousand mule loads of merchandise, which has thus found its way into California duty free, to the great dissatisfaction of the sea board mer- chants. Coin was scai-ce at San Francisco, being absorbed by the Custom house for duties. The average price of gold dust was 15 drs. 50 to 16 drs per ounce. It is com- puted that on the 20th of June 100,000 dollars' worth of flour was exposed in open air, and about 500,000 dollars of other merchandise, chiefly dry goods, for w...

Labuan. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

Labuan. By the schooner Polka, Capt. Tavenor, intelligence has been received from this co- lony to the I7th ult. The H. C. steamer Semerimas on her arrival there received some 80 or 90 tons of coals which had been loaded on the Polka, and proceeded in search of the Sylph. There had been little or no sickness at Labuan, although at a corresponding period of the monsoon last year, the fever was severe, and although there had been a great deal of rain, the co- lony was quite as healthy as it was during the best part of the N. E. monsoon. Not much has been done for the general drain- age of the island, but draining and clear- ing in particular spots has been carried on to considerable extent, and has no doubt tended to improve the salubrity of the set- tlement. Measures were some time ago taken for cutting down the dense jungle which bounded the inland side of the plain like a wall, and gave covering to a marsh, and a large drain had been commenced to run across the whole length of the ...

Will the Geraldine Mine Pay? [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

Will the Geraldine Mine Pay? THIS is a question alike important to those who contemplate investing their money in the undertaking and to the whole of our community, because, if successful, it will have the effect of iniusing fresh vigour in- to the somewhat dispirited colonists, which in itself would do much towards forward- ing their prosperity. No member of our community needs to be told of the great' benefit that accrued from the Sandal-wood trade, while it lasted, in bringing ships to our ports and enabling our merchants to import articles of consumption, without draining the colony of its specie ; now, un- fortunately, that resource is, at least, sus- pended, and for the nonce we have again to resort to the ruinous system of three or four years ago-that of paying high prices to the vessels of other places for our tea, sugar, and other supplies, not in our own produce but in downright hard cash. ¡Should, however, the Geraldine Mine be made to pay, the case would be again al- ter...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

To the Editor of the "Independent JournaV Sir,-You will much oblige by giving insertion to the following statement re- specting the disrespect that has been shown to the Captain and officers of the Spanish man-of-war:-This morning the ship got under weigh and sailed out until in sight of the north side of Arthur's Head, when she lay-to for a quarter-of-an-hour waiting for our salute, but as there was no sign of such a small compliment, she made sail again for Manila, leaving a slur upon each of us. In justice to Mr Welch, I must observe that he was at his post from a few minutes after 5 o'clock, ready prepared to do his duty manfully, but could not as he received orders from a Government Offi- cial to wait for the foreigner's firing first. I am not surprised at vessels not calling in for supplies when the Captain and Offi-. cers are treated in such an uncourteous manner, more particularly those gentlemen who have been so kind and attentive to each individual who visited the ship.

The name and address of the writer must accompany each com- munication. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." Sir,-It is seldom that the monotony of Perth is relieved by novelty ; therefore the brief visit of a Spanish vessel with the gaieties arising out of it, deserves some re- cord more lasting than the mere printed cards of the Officers scattered through our dwellings. I will, therefore, with your permission, give a short outline of the en- tertainment of last Tuesday, if but for the benefit of your "over the hills " readers. Tour fair friends, then, must know that a few of the Government Officers gave a Ball and Supper to the Spanish Officers, at Ronayne's Hotel, which was well at- tended and did justice to the taste of all concerned. Under the superintendence of Mr. Purkis, the ball-room was adorned with evergreens and bouquets, whilst fl...

GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. THE BRITTANIA BEIDGE.-On Saturday the critical operations connected with the lifting of this great fabric to its permanent level, 100 feet above high water mark, were commenced, and the great tube is now makiug its way majestically upwards. The raising is going on at the rate of six. feet a day, and the machinery acts most admirably. The tube, after being raised through each stage by the hydraulic press, is sustained by the chains until six feet of masonry are built under. Then means are taken to obtain a fresh hold, and the ope- ration repeated as before. The number of these separate lifting operations required vill be about fifteen, and as there will be me a day, the wholç operation Avili take a ortnight, including the process of building ip beneath.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

Local Intelligence. Advices received from Calcutta by the Emma Sherratt, give us the welcome intelligence that Mr. Prinseps has transmitted instructions to his agent at Hobart Town to send a number of fillies belong- ing to him in Van Dieman's Land, to join his stud at Leschenault under the charge of Mr. Little. Mr. Prinseps had also concluded with Messrs. Buckle for the purchase of the extensive grant of land at Leschenault belonging to the estate of the Messrs. Henty. We also learn that Major Bush had met with some difficulty in selling his Margeaux horse, Highflyer, in consequence of his having raced in this colony, being thereby disqualified for entering for the Calcutta "Derby Stakes," which is for horses that have never run. On Sunday morning about two o'clock, five na- tive prisoners employed at Rottnest, burrowed under the walls of their place of confinement, and escaped by boat from the island. We are rejoiced to find that not the slightest blame is, on this occasion, to be...

India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

India. So profound is the stillness which reigns over India that au affray at Malliapooram in the usually quiet presidency of Madras between a detachment of troops and a body of religious fanatics has made some- thing of a sensation. The fanatics be- longed to a caste called the Moplah; they were about 30 in number and had been committing various enormities, which com- pelled the civil authorities to call iu the aid of the military. A detachment of ] 20 men under Capt. Watts was furnished from the 43d. M.N.I. Half this force under Ensign Wy se advanced towards the pagoda whither the fanatics had betaken them» selves. As Ensign Wyse and his men mounted the hill on which the pagoda was situate, a body of the ruffians rushed out upon them. The Madi'as Spectator says ; " As they drew near, the Sepoys fired in- effectually, without receiving orders, and then shameful to relate, turned and fled, leaving Engsign Wyse who had stepped out alone to meet the foremost Moplah, with only a Jemada...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 18 January 1850

Original Poetry. This world is dark before me : Por gathering sorrows, woes, and pains, Liko clouds of death hang o'er me, And not one glimmering joy remains ! Gone is the morning splendour Of days, when life was in its dawn ; But still this heart is tender With all the blood-drops from it drawn! And still it throbs with sorrow For blissful hours for ever flown ; But scorns thoso lights to borrow That gleam from sources not its own ! Gone is t7ie noontide glory "VV hen life's most envied joys were mine ; Now dark as Egypt's story, Lost in the labyrinths of Time ! And yet there is a gleaming That mellows soft the dusky scone : The "light of Faith" is streaming This, and a brighter world, between. And there ia consolation, That life is verging to its close ; The grave,-my destination, My refuge,-and my long repose! The hungry grave is yawning, And while it calls my flesh away, Eternity is dawning, A brighter-a more glorious day. Eor this my soul is panting Beneath the cooling shade of...
