THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei" FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 February 1850
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" ERiDAYriEBE^ARYT.Ts'so. ME. YULE has favored the settlers, through the medium of the Inquirer, with ihe re- sult of his inquiries on i he subject of the proposed Company for Horse-rearing. We have not space to give the communication | in full, but as the general purport is al-1 ready familiar to our community, our omission may be excused. The communi- cation opens with a letter to Mr. Haggers, detailing the plan agreed upon, and offer- ing the following prospectus for the ap- probation of parties in India ; 1. It is proposed that a Company be formed, with a capital of sixteen thousand pounds, for the purpose of breeding, pur- chasing, rearing, and exporting colts for the Indian or other markets. NOTE.-Tlie capital here named is obviously very much less than could be granted, were it the intention of the company to purchase their own stock of brood mares ; which being, and still remaining the property of the colonists, materially decreas...
Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 February 1850
Miscellaneous. The following letter has been addresed by the President of the French Republic to Col. Ney : " My dear Ney,-The French Republic has not sent an army to Rome to strangle Italian liberty but, on the contrary, to regulate it, and preserve it from excesses, and on a solid basis to restore to the Pontifical throne the Prince who at the first placed himself boldly at the head of all useful re- forms .I learn with pain that the benevolent intentions of the Holy Father, and our own deeds, remain unfruitful in consequence of the influence of passion and hostile feelings. It is wished to have, as the basis of the Pope's return, proscription and tyranny. Say. on my part, to General Rosto lan, that it cannot be permitted, under the shadow of the tricolor flag, to commit an act derogatory to the character of our intervention.I sum up thus the re establishment of the temporal power of the Pope,-a general amnesty, the seculariza- tion of the Administration, the Code Napoleon, and a ...

Commander Pitman. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 February 1850
Commander Pitman. The court-martial which has recently at- tracted so much attention has terminated, and the Navy List is no longer encumber- ed by the name of Commander PITMAN. That gentleman entered the service in 1826 and after having enjoyed the authority of a commander for 6 years, he was by due form of martial law dismissed from the service altogether on Wednesday last. Whatever his career may have been elsewhere, the public has at all events acquired a suffici- ent insight into his sayings and doings on board the Childers in the period which elapsed between 1846 and her return to England from a cruise in the Chinese seas. During the whole of that interval Comman- der Pitman was lord paramount on board that unfortunate ship, and ruled her offi- cers and crew with an iron hand. The first intimation which was given of the la- mentable state of things in the Childers was the astounding intelligence that .two of her officers, Lieutenant Graham and the Master, Mr. Elliott, had deli...
Convicts and the Colonies[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 February 1850
Convicts and the Colonies, When Lord Grey was taunted last ses- sion with the numerous cases of colonial disorder, he asked triumphantly whether we could expect to keep fifty half-settled and semi-barbarous colonies in perfect tranquility, when nearly all the old esta- blished nations of Europe were in full re- volution? The answer was ingenious, but far two suggestive to be final. It ex- hibited in a very strong light the tremen- dous responsibility we incur by pretending to affiliate fifty communities, scattered over the whole face of the globe, and pre- senting every possible variety of ingredi- ents and condition. If it were a matter of compulsion-if the said fifty colonies were as much part of ourselves as the fifty-two counties of England and Wales, then we might decently congratulate ourselves on having made the best of the materials in our possession, even though half-a-dozen of them were in a state of ruin or revolt. The ease, however, is far different. These colonies are n...
To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 February 1850
To the Editor of tlie "Independent Journal" Sir,-I have sometimes thought Cervan- tes must have been a gifted seer and had my luckless self in his eye when he drew his "Knight of the rueful countenance." I am not only led to this conclusion when I survey my lack-lustre eye and thread-pa- per form in some unfriendly mirror, but I trace the resemblance in the moral man within ! With what untiring energy do I pursue my schemes ! How patiently do I plod along my weary way over mountains misnamed " Green," and hills to which even " distance " itself fails to " lend en- chantment!" "What matchless courage I display in attacking objects as harmless as windmills and wine-skins! Then again how innocent and amusing is my personal vanity, which leads me to imagine myself in eloquence a very Apollo, an Orpheus in song, and in penetration nothing less than " a Daniel come to judgment." Poor Don Quixote ! and poor M'Adam ! doomed alike to petty warfare-unsuccess- ful love-disappointed schemes-and...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 February 1850
Local Intelligence. GERALDINE MINE.—Mr. E. G. Hester returned from Champion Bay, overland, on Wednesday evening, having accomplished the distance in six days. By this opportunity we hear Mr. Burges re- ports that in consequence of his being without a blacksmith his tools are become utterly useless, and that in consequence he intended returning in a few days after Mr. Hester. The other informa- tion is unimportant ; the prospects of the mine were as encouraging as by former reports ; the natives were perfectly quiet. COURT OF REQUESTS.—It is no novelty in this Court to hear witnesses silencing each other thus —"that'll do, no more of your jaw, we've had quite enough of it," &c. Is there no Bailiff to enforce decorum ? If our expected Convict friends find that the fashionable slang of the justice shop, we may expect they will soon be at the top of the lad- der, and respectable persons go to the bottom of it. Perhaps the relaxing weather lengthens the tongue, as it does the str...

The Conscriptions of France. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 February 1850
The Conscriptions of France. The Presse of September 1, contains, under the head of " Tiie net Product of 20 Years of War," a remarkable article in support of its arguments in favor of a re- duction of the army. It sets out with a detail of the number of men levied in 30 conscriptions comprised within the years from 24th June, 1791 to November 15, 1S13-amounting to a total of 4,556,000 men. Napoleon, for his part, obtained by the conscription 2,4.76,000 men. Those who set out were never freed from ser- vice. Spain was the tomb of most of our own soldiers ; what remained perished al- most entirely in the snows of Russia. The army of 1813 was composed of recruits of from l8 to 20 years of age. Illness, fa- tigue, and misery decimated them. Of the 1,260,000 men raised in 1813, there remained in 1814, to defend the soil of France, but 100,000 men above the guard. In 1792 Prance had, as now, 86 depart- ments. The conquests . of the Republic gave her, in two years, the Rhine and the Alps ...

The Congress of Peace. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 February 1850
The Congress of Peace. On Barlholomew's-day 1472, the great leaders of the French court were seen dash- ing through the streets of Paris on horse- back, shouting as they went," Kill, kill ; bleeding is wholesome.' ' On the same day 1849, a noted poet was found standing at the head of an assembly, the majority of whom were of that same Protestant creed which it was then attempted to " kill ;" there were six hundred Protestant Eng- lish, with a hundred and fifty Protestant Americans-the Quaker hat, the bold brow of the New England Puritan, and the Anglican, the Independent, the Moravian, and the Methodist, were all arranged be- fore the speaker ; while by his side sat the Romish Archbishop of the very city where, on the day of which that was the anniver- sary, the Romish Church had wrought such murders. The poet's eye is flashing, and all his frame passionate. " On this day," he cries, " and in this city, all animosities, religious and political met, and for ever stained this date wit...

Miscellaneous. At Lemburg, in Galicia (Austrian Po- land), on the 31st ult., a milliner, accused of mak- ing Kossuth cockades, and of having persuaded or coaxed her husband to play the spy, was taken to the barracks, and there punished with thirty blows from rods or rather sticks, on her bare back. A farmer in Suffolk, within the last few days, was fined one pound and costs, for draw- ing blood from an old woman whom he called a witch, by scratching her head with a nail. He said she had bewitched him. Mr. J?. O'Oonner has declared his in- tention, soon after a conference which is to beheld in Nottingham on the 6th October, to retix'e from public life ; and Mr. J".
