THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Voxpopuîi, vox Dei." TüESDAY7MA^H127lJ5a TIIE Mountain which announced itself to be in labour on Wednesday last, brought forth its Mouse on Saturday amidst many groanings and lamentations, and is now "as well as can be expected." As wo supposed our announcement unkennelled the hidden prodigy. The specious tale in the last number of the Inquirer, that a " New weekly Newspaper," unconnected with that journal, was to appear, was far too barefaced to obtain any credit with tho community, gullible as the public is gene- rally supposed to be. The fact is, the self complacent Editor having the painful truth daily forced upon him, that even his extra- ordinarily clover lucubrations did not induce fresh subscribers or even retain the old sup- porters of tho Shilling Journal, conceived the preposterous idea of issuing a cheaper sheet, ostensibly under the auspices of other parties, but in reality his own crea- tion, hoping that by announcing it at a lower price if ta...

Isocal Intelligence. Wo have received intelligence from Buubury up to the 5th inst., by -which -we learn that on tho previous day the barque Maliommed Shah had ar- rived at that port from Van Diemon's Land, with a freight of 73 horses for Calcutta and 20, belong- ing to Mr. Prinsep, for his establishment at Les- chenault. Wo much regret to report that of tho whole number shipped, only 51 were alive on tho vessel's arriving at Bunbury after a voyage of only 20 days, and of those 4 %vero Mr. Prinsep's. Our correspondent reports that thi3 unfortunate mor- tality arose principally from tho horses having be- come infected with the disease called catarrh pre- vious to their being shipped pt Hobart Town, that discaso being now very prevalent in Van Diemen'o Land. The vessel left for Calcutta on the follow- ing day. On the evening of Saturday last, between seven and eight o'clock, a most brutal outrage was com- mitted upon a mau named Fletcher, (in the employ of J. W. Hardey, Fsq.) who, whe...

The Cause of Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
The Cause of Cholera. EXTBAOKDIXAKY AND IMPORTANT MICROSCOPI- CAL DISCOVERIES.- An annouucement has been made by Mr. Brillan of the very important disco- very that peculiar microscopic objects that exist, constantly in the characteristic ' rice water ' dis- charges of persans aiï'ected with cholera, and in the atmosphere of infected places. The peculiar objects in question were first seen by two or three members of a committee appointed by the Bristol Medico-Chirurgical Society for tho microscopic ob- servations of subjects connected with cholera. The first drawings of them, together with a great va riety of other objects generally to be met with in the 'rice water' discharges, were made by Mr. J.. G. Swayne and Mr. F. Brittan in the second week of June last. The laborious observations subse- quently made by Mr. Brittan and Mr. Swayne did much to show that some very important relations existed between these bodies and malignant cho- lera. The presumption thus raised was strength- en...
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Voxpopuli, vox Dei.' FRirÏYrMA^^ÏirïsSO. A NUISANCE of no slight present import- ance to the breeders of horses, and which will probably hereafter prove to be a seri- ous drawback, unless some measure is taken for its abatement, is the existence of herds of what may be termed wild horses, com- posed of those which have gone astray and not recovered, and of their progeny bred in the bush. Such a herd, numbering some sixty or seventy head, is now rang- ing between Wannaroo and Gingin, and is the source of considerable annoyance to the owners of horses in those districts, by enticing away whatever stock may be turned loose to graze in the neighborhood, inore especially brood mares, there being in the herd several young entire horses. The present state of the law upon the subject entirely prevents the settlers mak- ing any effectual attempt to abate the grievance. They are not allowed to des- troy them, and as to hunting them down, BO as to get them into stocky...
To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
To the ICdilor of the " Independent Journal"' Sir,-Your correspondent "B" must write again ore I am convinced of the fal- lacies in my former communication. The tenor of " B's" letter would make it appear rather that I have more exaggerated than spoken falsely, and between faleehood and exaggeration there is a wide difference, inasmuch as exaggerations in no case deny the facts in hand. After expatiating upon tho horrors of a convict country, after giving utterance to all that would' make a good tale for tho crafty guinses of the sybillive race to sing to young girls and old men, in the streets of Liverpool, Mr. "B." comes to doubt whether a man would not perish upon Is. 6d. per day especially if the present free emigrant is to be included, imagining I presume, that a free man cannot possibly live on so little as a convict. I love eco- nomy, and it ought to be found in the free emigrant where it is voluntary, as well as in the convict where it is compulsory. But Vile very fact of ou...

Californian Sayings and Doings. (From the New York Sunday Times.) Mister Editor-Marriageable females is remarkable scarce on the Sarah Nevady, but the felless bein' continually at work with their cradles has no time to think of pettycots. Gold is very plenty, and is the ocashun of much guilt-the major part of the fortunit miners bein' shot and rifled. I am digging myself in the bed of Eeather river, which is as full of gold as a quilt of cotton. Society is mixed. The Sand- wiches has mustard strong, and so has the Polly Neshuns. Also the Chinese is be- ginning to come in ; but the boys don't like their long tails, nor the ways their eyes is sot in their heads. They're a proud, lazy, sheepish-looking set, and unless they mind their peas and quees they'll get a laming. Why can't they use tobacco and wurk for their betters and wushup God like Chris tians,insteadofchawingtneirinfarnalopium andloafing about wushuping idles ? There's quite a number here too from the Sociaty Islands. Nice ...
Steam to Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
Steam to Australia. An editorial article thus headed, appears in the Morniny Chronicle of September 7th ; and as it assures us that Mr. C. D. Hayes, the advocate of the steam commu- nication by way of the Cape of Good Hope, is still in the field, we have great pleasure in transferring the article to our columns : " In the month of June last, a public meeting was held at Willis's Booms, on the subject of steam communication with the Australian colonies, when a committee was formed for the purpose of pressing on her Majesty's Government the urgent ne- cessity of immediate steps being taken for the adoption of some plan by which so im- portant an object should be undertaken without further delay. At this meeting all discussion on the respective advantages of the various routes was prohibited, and the committee consider that the duties en- trusted to them do not extend further than pressing the subject on the Government, leaving the responsibility of carrying it out to her Majesty's Min...
THE CHEMIST'S CAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
THE CHEMIST'S CAT. Mr. Celsus Phipps was a chemist, not one of your ordinary men, who put their trust in huge coloured glass bottles, and drive a large trade in lozenges. No. Phipps was an experimental chemist, and he acquainted the public with the fact by means of an inscription to that effect over his door, while he confirmed his neighbors in the belief by occasional explosions more or less violent. On one occasion he went so far as to blow the roof off his house, but that, he said, "was an accident." Moreover, Phipps was a licentiate of Apo- thecaries' Hall, and jobbed the paupers at l|d a-head, including pills and plasters. Mr. Phipps's establishment was evidently the home for natural philosophy. Experi- ments abandoned by every one else were eagerly sought after by Phipps; and he had a valuable auxiliary in his cat. When science slumbered, the cat might be seen comfortably dosing on the door step ; but when anything new in medicine or chemistry turned up, the cat had an ac- tiv...
Interesting Geographical Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
Interesting Geographical Discovery. By this time Dr Leichardt has probably solved the great geographical problem of the existence or non-existence of an inland sea in Australia; and as it may yet be some time before we become acquainted with the results of a long and perilous journey, the actual discovery of an exten- sive and beautiful lake in Southern Africa may serve to keep alive the hopes of those who look for tho discovery of another J Caspian Sea in the midst of this island-con- tinent. According to the last observation of the sun, the position of the traveller, on the borders of Lake Noka or Wama, or Ngama, was in latitude 10"" 7?, The following de- scriptions of the lake, the country on its borders, and the inhabitants, aro contained in a letter from one of the adventurous discoverers, under date, August 2 : "Wo reached this a day or two ago, after a journey of about 556 miles from Kolobeug, and icel thankful that our path has boen one of safety and pleasure. We are now at....
Assist.-Surv.-Gregory's Report. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 March 1850
Assist.-Surv.-Gregory's Report. The following report from Mr Gregory to the Surveyor General, detailing his recent operations and discoveries in the neighborhood of tho Ger' raldine mine, has been kindly placed in our hands for publication : Perth, March 11,1850. Sin,-I have to inform you of my return from Champion Bay, in accordance with your instructions of the 8th of Feb. _ Since my last report of the progress of the surveys in that district, I have marked out 40 half acre allotments in the townsite of Geraldton, and placed marks for the reserves required for public purposes. Having completed this sur- vey as far as circumstances would admit, I proceeded to the section purchased by the Geraldine Mining Company, on the Murchison River, and marked the boundaries. On making a farther search on tho spot where specimens of lead oro were found 2-i miles lower down the river, many fine specimens of Galena were dug up, some of the pieces ex- ceeding Clbs in weight, no vein was discovered...
