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

The Mercantile Marine. IN the Session of Parliament ending in August last, the Ministry announced that it M as intended in the next session, to in- troduce a bill to '* regulate the mercantile marine, with regard to the character and qualification of the masters and mates, the discipline of the crews, and the general well-being and condition of the seamen." Mr. Labouchere in notifying this inten- tion to the House of Commons, observed that the evidence before parliamentary committees proved that our captains and mates w ere nearly all men without educa- tion or moral training, and that there was a lamentable want of discipline amongst the crews. Amongst the remedies he pro- posed to effect by his bill, the first was the establishment of a superintending board for the mercantile marine : "At present there was no department of the Government responsible for the con- dition of the mercantile marine. The Admiralty aud the Board of Trade had a sort of divided authority in the matter, but...

Rome.—Naples. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 March 1850

Rome.-Naples. The Cardinals have decided that the railway to Naples is a useless scheme, tending only to inundate Eome with worthless foreigners ; they have therefore suspended the works, and thousands of people are in consequence thrown out of employment. A letter from Eome, of the 12th Octo- ber, states that the Pope, having consulted the Sacred College on the expediency of returning to Home, the majority decided, after a discussion (which commenced on the 6th and lasted till the 7th), that it would be desirable for the Pope to instal himself in the Vatican during the occupa- tion of the French a.'my. Persons are en- gaged day and night in preparing the apartments of the Pope at the Vatican, and it was said that his Holiness would arrive in the first week of November. Garribaldi the celebrated Italian Chief, on arriving at the island of Maddelina de- manded passports from England, with the intention of proceeding thence to the Uni- ted States.

Austria.—Hungary. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 March 1850

Austria.-Hungary* Many of the Hungariau refugees in Turkey had embraced Mahomedanism to ensure to themselves the protection of the Sultan against the Austrian Emperor. The Hungarian generals who submitted at Arad had, it was said, received sentence of death. It was reported that Georgey had been shot dead by Count Edmund Zichy, whose brother he had caused to be hanged. The latest accounts contain details of a continuation butcheries. Pesth letters of the 10th October stated that the work of death still continued. Two Magyar chiefs were hanged that day, and it was reported that sixty more were doomed. The hang- ings of the 10th were those of Ladisky Csanyi, lately Minister of Public Works and Baron Jesxenak, Commissary of Neu- tra under Kossuth. Csanyi, was the last representative of an ancient and distin- guished family, and fought in the war against Napoleon. "Baron Jesxenak was a Protes- tant, district-inspector of the Protestant churches and schools in the circle beyond the Danub...

News by the "Emma Sherratt." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 March 1850

News by the "Emma Sherratt." The intelligence from the neighbouring colonies, is not of much interest. In N. S. Wales considerable progress has been made in getting a Company for construct- ing a railway from Sydney, through Para- matta, to Liverpool, into working order. The State Prisoners arrived at V. D.

Seizure of the Sandwich Is[?]ands by the French. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 March 1850

Seizure of the Sandwich Xs.ands by the French. The French Naval Commander in Chief in the Pacific, tired, we suppose of inacti- vity at Otaheite, has distinguished himself Jbj some most unwarrantable proceedings îit the Sandwich Islands, Our space is too limited to admit of our giving in detail the official documents detailing this extraordi- nary occurrence, but the following, taken from the Sydney Morning Herald, will be sufficient to convey to our readers an idea of the outrage which has been committed. "When we read the correspondence of Admiral Tromelin and M. Dillon with Mr Wyllie, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Hawaiian Government at Honolulu, it appeared to us to partake so much of the ludicrous on tho part of the French Representatives, that we could hardly di- vest ourselves of the impression that in the first letter they were hoaxing the Hawaiian government ; but upon examining all the correspondence, the admirable and unan- swerable reply of Mr. Wyllie, and the f...

France.—Spain. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 March 1850

France.-Spain. In Prance, nothing had happened of ma terial interest or of general importance. The extraordinary ollicial change in Spain as noticed in our publication of yesterday, are attributed to the influence of the King of Naples, exercised through Father Ful gencis, confessor of the King-Consort, and who has conducted the intrigue throughout. It was, no doubt, easy to persuade the two children who occupy the throne of Spain that the moment had arrived for reaction, for throwing off the mask of liberalism; and for marching resolutely in the footsteps of Naples, and re-establishing pure absolu- ' tism. Alluding to changes, the Times corres- pondent writes under date October 20 : " The dismissal of the Narvacz ministry was yesterday published in the Gazette, to gether with the nomination of the Fulgen- cio-Balboa Government. "We read this day in the same official Journal, the fall of the latter and the restoration of the former. " The character of Queen Isabella did not stand ve...

United States. Much excitement had been caused in the United States by a lengthy address to the people of Canada, which had been pub- lished at Montreal recommending a disso- lution of the existing connection with Great britain. The Governor-General of Canada was at Toronto. The steam ship Ohio had arrived at New York, with 130,000 dollars in gold dust be- longing to her passengers, and 63,000 dol- lars, worth on freight. Her advices from California had been anticipated. The recent alterations in the Bi'itish na- vigation laws were nobly responded to by the following announcement from the United States' Treasury Department, on the 15th October : " 1. In consequence of the alteration of the British Navigation Laws, * * * British vessels from British or other fo- reign ports will, under existing laws, after the ] st of January next, bo allowed to en- ter into our ports with cargoes of the growth, manufacture, or production of any part of the world.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi vox Dei." FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 March 1850

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei." We have the most gratifying duty to perform which has, perhaps, ever fallen to the lot of a Journalist in either this or any other colony: to offer our acknowledge- ments to the settlers in the Southern dis- tricts, for a movement made in our behalf with regard to the day of the departure of the Southern mail, which at present, being on Thursday, operates much to our preju- dice, as causing the "INDEPENDENT JOUR- NAL " to be nearly a week old before it leaves Perth for Bunbury and the Vasse, consequently our circulation in those dis- tricts has hitherto been much less than what it otherwise would have been. It appears that in those districts we have numerous unknown well-wishers and would-be subscribers, who have been de- terred by the postal-regulation we have referred to ; but it seems that a general wish to support us has induced a represen- tation to be made to His Excellency, re- questing that an alteration of a few hours, may be...
