The Military Executions in Hungary. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 April 1850

The Military Executions inHungary. The National publishes the following details :-" Kiss and his three companions were shot as early as four o'clock in the morning; the death of the former was horrible-three volleys had to be fired at kim, and his sufferings endured for more than ten mi nut es. At six o'clock the same morning, the nine Hungarian generals condemned to be hung were brought to the place of execution, and the melancholy scene was not completed until ten o'clock. Count Vescey, whom it was wished to punish as severely as possible, in conse- quence of the damage which his cannon had done to the walls of Temeswar, was re- served for the last, in order that for four hours he might witness the sufferings of his companions in arms. There were nine gibbets erected in a line, but there was only one executioner, with two men to as- sist him. About eight o'clock, Count Charles Leiningen, who was to he the third in order, became impatient at the intentional delay, and said in a ton...

The Bush Fire. "I'm with ye once again!" SHERIDAN KNOWLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 April 1850

The Hush Fire. *' I'm with ye once again !" . SHBUJDAN KSOWÍKS. I am painfully aware of the few induce- ments I can hold out to your readers to participate in my idle speculations ; and I am at the same time sensible of the ineffi- cient manner in which I have treated the subject of Convict labor in my last paper. Valueless, however, as my remarks may be in this particular, I yet wish to say a few words on the same subject, not forgetting other points which will bear touching upon. Remember, Mr. Editor, that my leisure hours are snatched from those of rest and recreation, and make allowances for any inaccuracies which may be traced to fatigue of mind and body. I will add one more log to my fire and begin. - Without proceeding farther, two points appear to me as worthy of consideration: What is the position of this colony ? And does that position warrant the rejection of Convict Labor ? To those who can carefully trace the progress of Western Australia from its first settlement to th...

Expedition against Cuba. [From the Economist.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 April 1850

Expedition against Cuba. [From the Economist.'] Notwithstanding the proclamation of President Taylor, dated the Uttf of'Au- gust, warning the citizens of the ' United States against taking part in any expedi- tion against the island of Cuba, the last papers from the States are still full of de- tails of preparations for this purpose. A meeting was held at New York on the 31st - nit., on the subject, and money, it is said, to the amount of at least ^250,000, has been contributed for equipping the expe- dition and sending it to sea. It amounts to 1,500 men. The President besides his proclamation, has taken all the measures ' we believe he is authorised to take to pre- vent the expedition and disperse the ga- thering, but there is some reason to be», lieve that, in spite of his exertions, the ex- pedition will proceed. Already 500 me» nave left New York. The rendezvous is Bound Island, which lies off the mouth of Pascagoula Biver, not far from Mobile y and some United States men-of-war...

Quarter Sessions. Saturday, April 6; 1650. Beg. v. Denzil Onslow-Feloniously shooting at, with intent to do grievous bodily harm to, an Aboriginal native named Marrin, otherwise Maringo, at Bunbury. Marrin, otherwise Maringo, (an Abori- ginal native of the Bunbury district) hav- ing affirmed to speak the truth, &c, and his evidence being conveyed through a sworn interpreter, stated-I lived with Mr On- slow, and kept his cattle.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 April 1850

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Voxpopuli, vox Dei." EilDAYTAraÏÏrîÎliso. OUE colony j- the hitherto free settlement of Western Australia, is atlast settled down into a declared Penal Station. That this change has been a source of congratu- lation to many among us there can be no doubt, but that it is also a matter of regret to many, is no less certain. To those who sought a home here upon the understand- ing that our shores were to remain free from the pollution of the felonry of Great Britain, the greater facility the change will undoubtedly afford for amassing a compe- tence, will be scarcely considered a recom- pense for the disappointment of the expec- tation upon which they came. But to that class of settlers' there is at least the consolation that, although their adopted home will now receive the crimináis of Great Britain, as criminals, the colony had before become the residence of no small number of the same class, but dignified with the name of Parkhurst boys, and moreover was t...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 April 1850

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL " Voxpopuli, vox Dei." FBlDl^APRIL^Íl85p. IN our comments upon the brightening prospects of the colony, as gathered from the news received-by the Empress, we care- fully abstained from making any statements which could not be fully borne out, or which were not warranted. We have in this" colony so often been elated hy the highly magnified representations which have been made at different times, of the tide of prosperity about to change the for- tunes of the settlers, and which have here- tofore invariably ended in smoke, that we were in hopes the folly of such exaggera- tion would have been perceived, and the community allowed to remain unexcited, unless by statements authorised by actual events, or coming events of which there could be no possible doubt. It was with no little surprise1;hat we observed an opin- ion hazarded only a day or two since, that the population of the colony would during the present year he probably augmented by the addition of several...

Cream from. Punch. NOVEMBER FOGS SEEN THEOUH AT LAST.-The discoveries of science present an astouudinjj.jspectacle at alf times ; but; science has just presented to the world an astounding pair of spectacles in the form of a new invention-, called Fog glasses, the wearer of which, it is said is enabled to penetrate the darkness of the- thickest London November atmosphere. We should like to test the alleged power of these glasses, by putting them on, and plunging our heads into a tureen of pea» soup, when, if we could read an inscription pasted on to the bottom of the inside of the tureen, we should be very happy to furnish the inventor with a testimonial to» the efficacy of his Fog-glasses. He can not have chosen a better period of the year for bringing forward the discovery ; and if the experiment succeeds we shall be glad to give it a good word by expressing an opinion in the usual "evening paper" phraseology that "The Fog-glass ought to be on the bridge of every gentleman's nose,...

Steam Communication with Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 April 1850

Steam Communication with Aus- tralia. The voyage by the West India steamers from Southampton to Chagres, on the Is- thmus of Panama, is 5,080 miles, and oc- cupies, with seven days of stoppages, from thirty-two to thirty-five days. The voyage, "hy New York, to Liverpool, occupies, in- cluding stoppages, twenty-six days. It ia proposed to allow the steamers to sail from Chagres to St. Thomas's, thence to Payai, and so to Southampton, reducing tho dis- tance to 3,742 miles ; less hy 388 miles than the route by Jamaica ; and by em- i ploying steamers of the Ounard class, with 800 horse-power to 2,000 tons, the time might be induced lo i wenty-one or twenty three days-a most serious consideration, when the freight inayb e millions of dollars Passengers may save ten days. The American steamers, our rivals in the line, are to accommodate each 250 passen- gers, to steam eleven knots an hour, to bear 2,600 tons, with a power of 1,000 horses.

GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 April 1850

GLEANINGS FROM LATE ENGLISH JOURNALS. The actual state of France and the ex- act position of her president are still ques- tions which the politician labours to inves- tigate and ascertain, but as yet without marked success. That Louis Napoleon has been under-estimated becomeB every day more clear ; he has a great point be- fore him and he is making towards it with slow but sure approach. He exalts his own power by depressing rival authorities j he is careful not to provoke the majority in the assembly, and labours to bind to himself with the different sections which form that majority without suffering them to unite against him. The minority he wisely leaves to expose its own weakness. The men of pretension feel that he has crushed, for a time at least, their individu- al ambition, and weakened the instruments with which they might have worked him mischief. He is cautious and self-subdued. Even his ministry is no longer an indepen- dent element of power, and he is proceed- ing thro...

Execution. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 19 April 1850

Execution. We announced in our last issue that the extreme penalty of the law, pronounced upon three Aboriginal Natives convicted at the late Quarter Sessions, of murder, would be executed that day. The proces- sion, consisting of a cart, conveying the three criminals, and a strong escort of mi- litary, left Perth at 7 o'clock in the morn- ing, and was followed shortly after, by the Guardian of Natives, the Sheriff, the Co- lonial Chaplain, &c. The site selected for the execution, near Redcliff, was reached shortly before 9 o'clock, and the prepara- tions, were immediately commenced. There   being some doubts as to the strength of the scaffold being sufficient for the simul- taneous execution of the three, the elder culprit, Kanyin, was first placed under the fatal beam, manifesting the utmost indiffe- rence as to his fate. The rope having been adjusted, the Colonial Chaplain briefly ad- dressed the spectators, requesting them to join with him in prayer to the T...
