HOW TO MAKE AN UNHEALTHY BED ROOM. (From the Journal of Public Health.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

HOW TO MAKE AN UNHEALTHY BED ROOM. (From tJie Journal of Public Health.) If you want to have a thoroughly un- healthy bed-room, ßiese are-tbe precau- tions you should ;take:-Fasten a chimney board against the fire-place, so as to pre- vent foul air from escaping in the night ; and of coursé in the night season never have a door, or window open. Use no per- forated zinc in panelling ; especially avoid it in small bed-rooms. So you will get a room full of bad air. But in the same room there is bad, worse, and worst ; your object is to have the worst air possible. Suffocating machines aro made by every upholsterer ; attach one to your bed ; it is an apparatus of poles, rings, and curtains. By drawing your curtains around you be- fore you sleep, you ensure to yourself a condensed body of foul air over your per- son. This poison vapour bath you will find to be most efficient when it is made of any thick, material. There being trans- piration through the skin, it would not be a bad idea t...

Hayti. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

Hayti. Tired of republican simplicities, Hayti has promoted its President, M. Faustin Soulouque, to be a Monarcli ; but, not eon tent with calling him "King," it at once elevates him to the dignity of "Emperor." Probably Monarchical institutions will prove more congenial to the Negro mind, and may thus save some of the disorders which so often unsettle the Black Repub- lic. But the Emperor enters upon his state with new fashions in royalty. His inaugural proclamation is headed in a very democratic style-"Liberty, Equality." In assuming his title, he avows himself the " slave " of his beloved country ; a phrase which seems to have a peculiarly emphatic savour in a Negro state. And he does not sign himself " Faustin " hut " Soulou- que "-rhe is not the Emperor Faustin us, but the Emperor Soulouque. Perhaps Hay- ti foresees the future of France, and de- sires to set the fashion for its illustrious cadet in Republican Imperialism.

Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

Africa. A very interesting account of the Damara country had been furnished to the Cape Toion Observer, by the Rev. Mr Kolbe, of the Rhenish Missionary Society. Among other singular facts, it is recorded of the inhabitants that they practice circumcision. They are nomadic, and the custom of poly- gamy prevails. Though without intoxica- ting liquors, they are much inclined to the vice of intoxication, swallowing for this purpose tobacco smoke. In token of res- pect they remove the sandal, like Orientals In the treatment of their sick, they are coarse, even brutal. Many, if not most of the dead among them are murdered. If the illness lasts too long, they stab the sufferer, and thus put an end to his misery The dead are carried to the grave in a skin in which they are so doubled up, that the length of the body appears scarcely two or three feet, the head resting nearly on the knees. Their most binding oath is OmaJwze (Tears)-" By the tears of my mother." The following letter has been r...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

To tîie ICditor of the " Independent Journal" Sir,-I see by your Journal that a re- quisition signed by several Shareholders in the Western Australian Mining Asso- ciation, has been presented, requesting a general meeting to be called for discussing the propriety of purchasing the newly dis- covered Copper mine near the Murchison. The time has undoubtedly arrived when it becomes every true colonist to consider, with regard to our mineral possessions, what plan would tend most for the gene- ral advantage of the community, and by whom the new mine ought to le purchased. It appears to me that this question, with regard to the Restera Australian Mining Association, cannot be answered in the affirmative. I have no doubt this asser- tion will be cavilled at by many of the Shareholders, but on taking a dispassionate view of the affairs of the Company, I be- lieve no reasonable rian will arrive at a different conclusion. It is nbw become no- torious that a very large number of the proprieto...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei." THE letter of our correspondent "Alpha " broaches a subject of no slight interest to our community. We certainly concur with him in considering that the purchase of what he has very appropriately termed the " WHEAL GBEGOBY MUTE," could no* be very readily effected by the W. A. Mining Association, and this opinion is, we believe, very generally entertained by the share- holders, however ardently they may indi- vidually desire to become participators in the prospective benefits to arise from Mr. Gregory's discovery. Our belief is that the Company's mine at Kelmscott will yet prove to oe a most valuable property, that copper exists there in abundance, but that to obtain that ore will require all the re- sources of the Company, amd that in the | present doubtful state of the question as | to the right of defaulters to resume their j shares upon payment of arrears, it would be the height of folly for the Company to make anv farther speculat...

Colonial Wine Growing. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

Colonial Wine Growing. Of the various institutions which have . been formed in this country with the view of investigating and opening out its re- sources, we think there can be no doubt that the most successful, the most promis- ing, and the most important, is the 'Hun- ter Uiver Vineyard Association.' Unlike most of its predecessors or contemporaries, which have embraced objects too uumerous and a sphere of action too large,' it confines its attention to a single production, and circumscribes its labours within a. compa- ratively small section of the colony. It proposes nothing more than the growth of the vine, and thqr'manufacture of the grape into articles of commerce : and it proposes to do this only within the district whose name it bears. And in how business-like a manner its one business has been con- ducted, and with what encouraging results its industry has been rewarded, our readers have seen from the reports of its transac- tions, which we have had the pleasure of publis...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

CALIFORNIA. We understand that the statements of King, published in our last, have derived much conformation from another letter received, from Mr Grimes, whose first communication from San Francisco to this colony we were permitted to publish. The writer, urged by the spirit of enterprise, left this colony for the gold country, and was accompanied by a younger brother, and Mr. Palmer, a elerie of respectable standing in the Bank of Australasia, who relinquished a good salary, in order to find a shorter and more independent road to wealth. At the date of Mr. Grimes's letter, Mr. Palmer and his brother were at the Dig- gings, accumulating gold at the rate of from one to three ounces per day. It ia not "gold dust," the particles usually found being from about the size of a small pin's head up to that of a bean. Mr Grimes was in San Francisco retailing the goods lie carried with him at a handsome profit, and employing his drays to good ac- count. He contemplated an early return to Brit...

The New Constitution. We find the following dispatch from Earl Orey upon this subject in the Van Die men's Land journals received by the JEm ma Sherratt : Downing-street, 31st August, 1849. Sir, IN reference to my circular Despatch of .24th May last, including the Report of the Com- mittee of Her Majesty's Privy Council for Trade and Foreign Plantations, on which the Bill for the better government of Her Majesty's Australian Colonies recently introduced into the House of Commons was founded. I have now to iuïorm you, with very great regret, that it has been found impossible to proceed with that Bill during, the Session just concluded, in consequence of the heavy pressure of business of a most urgent cha- racter which has occupied tho attention of Parlia- ment even down to its close. . 2. It will however be again introduced with the least possible delay, after the re-assembling of Par- liament, modified in one important particular only. The provision for a general and uniform tariff ...

Bunbury. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 March 1850

Bunbury. The return cricket match between the married and single eleven chosen from the united clubs of Bunbury and the Vasse, was played at the former place on Friday the 15th inst. At eleven o'clock the Single men appeared at the wickets, and after a very steady display of batting, succeeded in making up an innings of 83 runs. The spirited play of Mr. G. Wollaston, and careful batting of Messrs. Charles Clifton and Thoms Little, Junr. were much admired in this innings. The Married men, however, upon taking the bats, soon settled steadily to their work, and proved that the contest would be a spirited one. This innings was also protracted, and of the 68 runs placed on the paper, Messrs, Bridges, Mc'Glew, and Harris alone ob- tained 46. After a short interval, devoted to refresh- ing the inner man, the Bachelors again took the bats, and succeeded in running up a score of 36, to which Mr, Worsley Clifton chiefly contributed in a very neat and careful manner. It will thus be seen that ...
