Commander Pitman. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

Commander Pitman. In our last issue we furnished our read- ers with an extract from the Times, detail- ing the causes which led to the extraordi- nary naval trial which has recently occu- pied so much public attention in England, not only among the brother officers of the defendant but also with the generality of the public. "We now give the remainder of the article, which our space would not admit of laat week. " It is not our intention to enter into any minute examination of the evidence by which these extraordinary charges were sustained on the part of the prosecutors. Itwould almost suffice to say that the Court, after due deliberation, was of opinion "that the charge of general cruelty and oppres- sion was in part proved against the prison- er ; that the charge of false expenditure of stores, and the charge of false statements in the log-book of H.M S. Childers, were proved against the prisoner." It is im- possible, however, to avoid remarking on some of the very awkward disclo...

Our Colony. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

Our Colony. "We take from the Western Australian of Aug. 1, the following article, drawn forth by the arrival of the intelligence of the re- sult of the Perth meeting of Eebruary last year : " "We had long been aware that the in- habitants of our colony were divided on this important subject, and we waited till some positive universal demonstration should bo made before any notice were ta- ken of a conflict which assumed but the ordinary front of a common local discussion. That demonstration has at length been made. An unusually large and well-at- tended meeting has in the most emphatic manner declared for making "Western Aus- tralia a penal settlement : without any re- servation have the settlers en masse raised their voices in its favour. Now, when a thing has been so long di- viding a community, that is a truly happy circumstance which brings it to a head, and settles at once and for ever the heartburn- ings and reciminating squabbles of years. The "Western Australians have decla...

The Legislative Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

The Legislative Council. The Legislativo Council met on Monday for the consideration of the Estimates. His Excellency read the following address : GENTLEMEN,-T could have wished, had cir- cumstances permitted, to have stayed convening this Council to a later period, in the hope that the list of names I have submitted to Earl Groy for his approval might have been returned to this co- lony, with His Lordship's decision, before our meeting. This list not only replaced the vacancies created by the lamented docease of two of our most res- pected members, but also increased the number of unsalaried members, somewhat in accordance with the expression of public opinion on the subject Disappointed, however, in this hope, and seeing little probability of an early arrival from England, I have felt the -necessity of submitting for your consideration, without further delay, a statement of finance, embracing the whole of the current year, with the estimates for the succeeding year, which I trust ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

Local Intelligence. BAZAAE.-The Bazaar for the benefit of the Wesleyan Native Institution held on Thursday the 14th inst., was far from being so well attended as its object and the exertions of its promoters de- served. The display of useful and ornamental ar- ticles far exceoded that of any previous exhibition, but the greater portion remained \msold, the to- tal sum realised being only about £25, a meagre result compared with fotmer years, and attributa- ble in some degree to the present dearth of money in the colony. Wo understand that the Mary will probably sail for England on or about Tuesday next. Up to the hour of our going to press, the arri- val of the Champion, from the northward had not been reported. THE. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.-The Counoil met on Thursday and Mouday, the 14th and 18th inst. when the formality was gone through ef reading the Estimates a second and third time, and the Council was then adjourned, sine die.

The Editor of this Journal invites the free exprès sion of ¿as opinions of his Correspondents, but can not beheld responsible for them. T/ie name and address of the writer mnst accompany each com municathn. - To His Excellency Governor~FiTzGtmiAJjT). Sir,-A looker-on often sees more of a game than they who play at it. I am as a pilgrim casting a "meditative eye" on what passes around me, and express my sentiments without fear-for I have no- thing to lose; without flattery-for I have nothing to gain. This preface may b«spealc your Excel- lency's attention ; and if the few remarks I oiler serve as useful hints to more ma- tured judgments than my own, my end will be answered. AVriters on Swan River resorted to the crooked policy of inviting attention by extravagant panegyric. Their glowing reports gained credence in Down- ing Street, and the price of land in this modern Arcadia was raised to ten times its real value; and emigration-(emigration the grand desideratum for which this fines...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 February 1850

South Australia. The arrival of a mail from King Geor- ge's Sound gives us late intelligence from S. Australia. "We have received no jour- nals but from private advices we glean the following items of news:-A deposit of gold had been found and a company pro- posed for washing and smelting, an allure- ment for embarking in which was held out in the shape of an analysis giving 96 per cent, of that metal. It appears that the deposit had been known for some time, but had been kept secret for the purpose of enabliug certain parties to buy up the land, a ruse which had fully succeeded. Notwithstanding, however, the discovery of the precious metal within the province, a fever for emigrating to California had seiz- ed upon the South Australians, but which principally manifested itself amongst the fittest class for undertaking such an enter- prise-those who had little or nothing to lose-as was fullly manifested upon the departure of the ship Pauline, for San Francisco, with upwards of 200 pa...

Cholera in the United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 March 1850

Cholera in the United States. " You can have no proper idea of the ravages of the foil disease or its effects. The city, from a population of nearly seventy thousand, is now reduced to not over thirty thousand. Everybody has fled but those too poor to leave, or whose busi- ness compelled them to remain. The streets are deserted, except by the hearse and the mournful procession moving to the gloated cemeteries. The blackened ruins, instead of being removed and giving way to new places of business, as they would but for the pestilence, now present a sad spectacle of desolation. Few steam- boats are running, and those go away loaded with the affrighted population, but bring back no passengers. The deaths, as reported for several weeks, have been from 100 to 160 per day, while it is conceded by all who know, that from one-quarter to one-third are not reported; so that the actual number of deaths for some time past has not been much less than 200 per day -or say 1,205 a week-and that, to...

Rome after the Siege. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 March 1850

Rome after the Siege. ""We entered Rome in a diligence, which at present goes or not, according to the chance of passengers, of whom there are but few, by the Porte Cavalleggieri ; and pas- sing St. Peter's, soon found evidence of the late siege, on either side of the 'golden Tiber,' as the clay-coloured river has been termed by imaginative poets. Clumps of houses around St. Angelo had been blown up or knocked down, into heaps of brick- bats, from which patches of frescoed walls and ornamented passages rose up, here and there, in melancholy ruin. A stranger would have thought that the first step had been taken towards forming some great new street. This demolition, however, soon terminated ; and then, as we passed along the narrow streets, more or less dirty, which lead to the Corso, the French soldiers were the only evidence of the late struggle. And these literally swarm everywhere. They are the sentinels at all the public buildings and places ; they fill all the cafés, throng all...

The Champion returned on Tuesday even- ing from Champion Bay, with a portion of the Military and the Geraldine Mining Company's men. By this opportunity we have received a variety of intelligence, which we shall give in as connected a man- ner as possible : Mr. S. Burges, the Company's Superin- tendent, reports the discovery of an ex- tensive vein of rich silver-lead ore, in ad- dition to the large lead lodes before worked, and also further strong indications of cop- per ; moreover that the matrix of the ores is a soft rock, something similar to slate, capable of being broken up with the slight- est force.

Local Intelligence. COURT OF REQUESTS.--We are happy to say we have been furnished with such information, from an undoubted source, as enables to contradict most   positively the allegations of our correspondent which we referred to last week. The Commis- sioner of this Court we are assured, and we believe it, has never in any instance given advice as a So- licitor in any case where he had the slightest rea- son to suppose that it would come before him for decision. In one instance, probably that on which our Correspondent founded his assertions, a party applied to the Commissioner for advice, which was given on the supposition that the case would be brought before the Civil Court, being for a sum exceeding the amount which falls under the juris- diction of the Court of Requests ; subsequently to the advice being given, the party receiving it thought proper to reduce his claim and obtained a summons for the lower court, but the case was ul- timately decided by the Civil...

Civil Court. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 March 1850

Civil Court. HABGOOD v. BURGES and BURGES V. HABGOOD. This important case came on for trial on Tuesday the 19th and Friday the 22nd inst. The case arose out of the following circumstances : Messrs. Burges engaged   Messrs. Habgood to ship a certain quan- tity of wool in the Hindoo, on which they received an advance of 1s. per lb.; the London agents of the shippers insured the same at the rate of 10d. per lb. Messrs. Habgood, sought to recover of the Messrs. Burges the difference between the advance and expenses and the amount of insurance recovered ; this was the action of the first day. On the Friday the position of the parties was reversed, the Messrs. Burges suing the shippers, and averring that the defendants in apportioning tbe same amount per lb for one parties good wool as for another's bad wool, had acted un- justly : thus, the Messrs Habgood as wool shippers, had shipped many different par- cels for separate parties and of different qualities, and had by their ...

A PSALM OF LIFE. WHAT THE HEART OF THE YOUNG MAN SAID TO THE PSALMIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 March 1850

A PSALM OF LIFE. WHAT THE HEABT OF THE YOüXa MAX SAID TO THE PSALMIST. Tell me not, in mournful numbers, * Life ÍB but an empty dream !' For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real ! life is earnest ! And the grave is not its goal; ' Dust thou art, to dust returnest,' Was not spoken of the soul. Kbt enjoyment, and not sorrow, IB our destined end or way : But to act, that each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day. Art is long, and Timo is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like mufiled drum3, aro beating Funeral marches to the grave. In the world's broad field of battle, In the bivouac of life, Be not like dumb driven cattle ; Be a hero in the strife ; Trust no future, howe'er pleasant Let the dead Past bury its dead ; Act-act in the living present ; Heart within, and God o'erhcad. Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footsteps on the sands of time. Footprints tha...
