Convict Labour. [Concluded from our last.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 February 1850

Convict Labour. [Concluded from our last.] " Tlie moral we draw is in truth derived from the contradictory estimates of the value of soils in various parts of the world ; we find that in America land is sold at fe- ver and ague prices, in parts of Australia at £1, in New Zealand at £2 10s., but in Western Australia at no price at all; there it is not to be bought ; in fact, not until the whole of Australian waste is disposed of, or till it conies in as a reversion to the five hundred-and-fiftieth descendants of the present proprietors. We are compelled to say these things for the welfare of the community and for the very good of the lands and their possessors, because people in this country naturally infer barrenness and unproductiveness as the cause of our colonists seeking that which almost all other settlements repudiate. "Why do your settlers ask for convicts if their coun- try is not a miserable one and in a hope- less case." ? is the oft repeated practical question, yet one ea...

Birth.-At Perth, on Tuesday, the 19th inst, the lady of E. C. Souper, Esq. of a daughter. To Correspondents.-" GOOD FAITH." -Wo bog to decline inserting this communication at the same time we thank the writer for the fa- vorable opinion he expresses of our Journal. We have too thorough a contempt for the individual re- ferred to, to seek to bandy words with him ourselves or to wish our friends to do it for us. In common, we believe, with the generality of the public, our contempt is somewhat mingled with pity, deeming the unfortunate person in question to be labouring under an hallucination as i o the extent of his men- ial powers, which however well suited for his for- mer occupation of a potty dealer in butter and ba- con, ai'e certainly unequal to the task he has under- taken, as witness his effusion of Wednesday last, which the veriest tyro in colonial affairs would pronounce to bo one of the greatest pieces of non- sense, misrepresentation, and folly ever put forth to the publi...

T/ie name and address of the writer mnst accompany .each com- munication. ? ? To llisliditor of the " Independent Journal." Mr. Editor,-Can you not give a hint to your contemporary that " want of de- cency is want of sense ?" The eyes of my young people were caught by a paragraph that promised some huge piece of editorial pleasantry, but it proved like the " moun- tain in labour," and I must say the insig- nificant " mouse " it brought forth, though not perhaps so mischievous as such vermin are, was at least as " ofíensive to delicacy." Your constant reader, ALIQUIS. Perth, Eeb, 11, 1850.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. Vox jpopuli, vox Dei." FRIDAY3EÍRÜAEY'23,X 1850. Ouß attention has of late been called by eeveral communications respecting the ad- ministration of j ustice in this colony. One of these details a case recently decided in a certain Eesident Magistrate's court ia one of the inland districts, Tvhere it is eom plained that the lady of the worthy justice transacts all the business-hears the cases decides them, makes out the judgment, &c., and then hands the documents for her husband to sign, who has been all the time sitting by without taking any part in the affair! Another communication animad- verts upon the Court of Eequests at Perth, representing that the Judge of the Court is not unfrequently also the solicitor of the plaintiff or defendant of a case brought before him for decision. With regard to the first of these repre- sentations, supposing it to be correct, and we have no reason for thinking otherwise, it appears to us that it calls for the spee...

The Barque "Mary. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal" Sir,-On reading the Supplement to the Inquirer of the 30th of January, I was much surprised to see it reported that the Wool bales that had been sent on board fie Mary,''' have been destroyed, and the wool much deteriorated by compression and dirt. 1 beg leave to inform the public that I have stowed and assisted to stow several cargoes of wool at Swan Eiver, and I posi- tively declare that I never saw a cargo of wool taken on board any ship, that was stowed witli greater care than the present cargo of wool taken on board the Mary, and in veiy few cases has equal care beeu taken to prevent the wool bags from split- ting, and the wool from being destroyed.

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

To Hie Editor of the " Independent JonmalT Sir,-It appears ta me that there are some fallacies in the last letter of your correspondent ''King Dick," which re- quire notice, and as you have not taken upon yourself to refute them, I trust you will auow me to attempt doing so. Tour correspondent very justly says that our colony has been beset with enemies, who have done us all the injury which laid in their power, and, unfortu- nately, this has not been a little ; the con- clusion, however, which he draws from this premise I cannot agree with, that the introduction of convicts cannot do us more injury or be more detrimental. Does he mean to assert that any intending Emi- grant in England, who has the least re- gard for the moral welfare of his family, would not spurn the idea of settling in a colony where, at every turn, his children would be surrounded and associated with the outcasts of society, where the first ser- vant he may hire might be a murderer, the second a thief, the third...
