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

BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. The following items of European intel- ligence are taken from English November papers of the latest date in the colony, re- ceived by the Empress and kindly placed at our disposal : It is rumoured that Government intends to introduce into Parliament during the ensuing session, a measure to alter the ex- isting system of currency. SUPPLY OF WATER.-It is suggested, by a writer in the Journal of Health, that the metropolis might bo supplied with water from Bala Lake Merionethshire, every town or neighbourhood that required water on the route, being provided by the way. Bala it is remarked, being 1,000' feet above the level of the sea, and a line by which Witter would descend quickly being readily found, not exceeding 250 miles in length even w ithout putting the water into pipes, there could be no difficulty in sup- plying London by gravitation. THE BRITANNIA BitriJou.-On Saturday the first of the, great tubes of the Britan- nia-bridge v as finally lowered down ag...

The Desperadoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

The Desperadoes. It is very obvious, upon the most cur Bory view of the natural history of society, that intelligence and morality are the con- ditions precedent to liberty. In their earliest stages mankind always reduced community to absolutism. The patriarch is an autocrat in his family, just as the oldest buffalo or elephant, rules the rest of the herd with an iron rod. His wives are slaves, and he asserts the power of life and death over his chddren. As nomads become larger, the chief, who is the most cunning, warlike, strong, dominates su- preme. There are no votes taken in a tribe of savages. The squaws and the youthhoo'd are made drudges and cyphers; the conquered are made slaves; the few who are best painted and most tatooed meet, sit cross-legged, smoke, and dictate. In Africa, the drunken King, alter a heavy supper and night-mare, whacks off as many heads as he has got messages to his great- grandfather in the world of shadows. No hody questions either his power or its use...

Australia and the Americans. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

Australia and the Americans. Australia will derive benefit from the repeal of the navigation lawsjjparticularly Swan River and other minor ports. Äe Americans frequently oar ry on a retail trade in their ships, quite different to the proceedings of our merchant princes. A ship is built freighted and manned by the joint contributions of a s?aport or river village. Some find labour-Borne have timber-the blacksmith contributes his skill and his labour-the freight is made of odds and ends of superfluous produce and Yankee notions, or toys fit for savages and backwoods women. The crew may not perhaps include more than two able seamen. We met once at Bahía, the captain of a most successful lit- tle schooner, engaged in whaling and sealiug, who was not onl rcaptain but carpenter and doctor, and first-rate in all capacities, although he had started in life as a schoolmaster, and never ventured upon salt water until he was past thirty years of age. He -«aid he was-and he was-the smartest cap...

China.-Macao. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

China.-Macao. The Governor of Macao, Senhor do Amarul, whilst taking his evening ride on the 22nd of August last, was set upon by si*. Chinese within the limits of his own jurisdiction and barbarously murdered, his head and his single hand being carried off by the cowardly assassins. The catastro- phe appears to have produced an immedi- ate conviction that the Chinese Govern- ment was implicated in the deed, and an attitude of distrust and hostility was at once assumed by the Portuguese authori- ties. After despatching an inculpatory address to the Imperial Commissioner, the Council of Macao put themselves in com- munication vith the British Governor of i Hongkong, and their appeal was promptly answered by appearance of Captain TBOUB BIDGE, with the Amazon and the Medea, in the Macao roads. Common cause, in- deed, appears to have been made at this extraordinary juncture between all Euro- peans, as well from the apprehensions en- tertained of further violence as from the respect univ...

Chinese Conjurors. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

Chinese Conjurors. The compredoro now retired, leaving the empen ror of all the jugglers, necromanoers, conjurers, and magicians standing solus in the centre of the apart- ment. Onr friend now commenced operations, by placing his box at his side, be then stripped off bis jacket, leaving himself nude from the waist upwards with the exception of a white cloth which wa» twisted about his loins ; he then took his long tail of plaited hair, and twined it around his head. Be- ing thus prepared by denuding himself of his jacket to prove there was nought concealed in his sleeves, he opened his box, and took therefrom an ordinary earthenware bowl or basin of about eighteen inches in diameter, closed the lid of the box, leaving it in the middle of the room, and completely exposed to our view ; he then walked round the room, basin in hand, presenting it successively to each guest for inspection, the whole of the time muttering in Chinese, which we afterwards learned was a species of incantatio...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

To fíie Editor of the "Independent Journal." My dear Sir,-Can you tell me the meaning of the last part of that terrific article upon the execution of Konyir», in this week's Inquirer?-" the whole of the proceedings at Ren cliff will tend to the discouragement of those feuds and murders which have hitherto reflected discredit amone mi, as a community of Christians, who aro bound by our laws, human and divine, to cherish the lives of even the most ab jectof our fellow-creatures." Now times are hard certainly, but as yet we have not taken to blacking ourselves and go- ing naked, and although there may be a little jarring now and then,' my firm conviction is that Mrs.-would not (on account of her feelings) in cold blood "gidje" Mrs--, neither would Mrs. ---, with the tongs hammer tha head of Mrs.-, although they should he at *' hammer and tongs," It is really too bad tor an Editor to take upon him- self to state that a " community of christians", should so far forget themselves. * - ' F...

Vine Cultivation. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

Vine Cultivation. We find'in the Sydney Morning Herald a letter containing some valuable remarks upon the culture of the vJne, and which it is likely may prove useful to cultivators in this colony,gwe therefore ei tract it for their information. I read to-day with much interest the ac- count you gave of the proceedings of the gentlemen now engagea in growing wine on the Hunter, Having resided for some years at Tain, Départe me«t de la Drome, where the hermitage is made, and of which wine, part of my family are large growers, I take the liberty of making a few remarks which may not be uninteresting to some of your readers. The hills upon which the best wine is now grown, were originally bare rocks of granitic formation; and, at the present day, vineyards are increased, or newly made, by blasting the rocks with gunpow- der, breaking the larger pieces with sledge hammers, and planting the vines in the fragments thus made. It is worthy of the notice of cultivators, that if the same plan...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

Miscellaneous. NAVAL EORCE OP GREAT BRITAIN. The naval force of the United Kingdom consists of 671 ships of war, either build- ing, in ordinary, or in commission (in the Mediterranean, the "West Indies, coast of America, coast of Africa, East Indies, the Pacific, &c), carrying from 1 to 120 guns each, of various calibres. Of this cumber 180 are armed steam vessels, con- structed on the most approved principles for active sea service, of from 100 to 80Ö horsepower engines. This immense fleet, the largest of any maritime power in the world, employs in times of peace from 35,000 to 40,000 able-bodied seamen, 2000 strong lads, and 12,000 royal marines, divided into four divisions of 112 com- panies. The exact velocity of electricity along a copper w ire Í3 288,000 miles in a second ; it is calculated accordingly that we could telegraph to our antipodes in rather less than the 500th part of one second of time !

Bunbury. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

Bunbury. Thursday, April 18th Just as the Post was leaving news was brought me that a native named Duncan, had speared another native, known as Bobby, last night through the heart, near the Wannerup Estuary. It seems that Duncan has lately been in Gaol, and, while incarcerated, poor Bobby had appropriated his better half. Hence the murder was brought about. Further particu- lars in my next.

The Angry Czar. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

The Angry Czar. The Em.peror of Russia is very angry with the British Government, Lord Pal- merston ought not to have interfered to prevent his humane design of hanging, shooting, or cutting off the heads, of as many of the 5,000 Hungarian refugees, at Widdin,,as were required to satisfy the imperial thirst for revenge. The Emperor hears of orders given to the English fleet, aud protests against the hostile demonstra- tion in the midst of peace, and against the right of England to interfere in a matter which according to the Imperial view of the case, concerns only Russia and the Sublime Porte. Moreover the Emperor has signified to F;iad Effendi, the Turkish Envoy, that his mission is at an end : that from friendship to the Sultan he had ac- corded him an audience, though his pre- sence at St. Petersburg was an infraction of a treaty, seeing it had not been previ- ously announced, but that henceforth all communications of the Turkish Envoy must take place through the Minister for Fo...

Netherlands India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

Netherlands India.. The Straits Times in an article on Rhio, gives us some curious specimens of Dutch Rule; "We confess our views of Dutch liber- ty, whether of conscience or of the person -as far as Netherlands India is concerned -are not favourable. The deportation of obnoxious individuals-Van Vliet or Van Hoevel for instance-is repugnant to an admirer of free institutions. But where the law of expediency is freely encouraged and countenanced, we need hardly wonder at some of the Dutch Residents erring as to the extent to which the deportation process should be used. It is not many years since a Resident in Java seized an European subject, without friends to sup- port him against oppression, and caused him to be transported beyond the bound- aries of his Residency, and there, on the highway, abandoned him a prey to savage beasts! The unfortunate outcast's only crime consisted in having defended him- self in an action brought against him by a Chinese, and in course of the trial he ...

India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

India. THE COUNTRY TEADE.-The term " Country Trade " in its more limited ac- ceptation is confined to the intercourse be- tween the principal Presidencies and the inferior ports along the coast of India ; in its larger sense, in addition to this domes- tic traffic, it embraces all the relation of India with the neighboring countries, in- cluding on the west, the Ports of Persia and Arabia ; on the east, those of China, Cochin-China, Burmah, Siam, Sumatra, Borneo, Java, the Phillippines, and the Moluccas. A brief description of the his- tory, course and progress of this branch of trade, will, we trust, be interesting to our readers. From the time that the Portugese ar- rived in India to within a few years of the close of the last century, the trade of Wes- tern India centered at Surat, to the north of Bombay, and at Calicut, on the coast of Malabar. Trade of Surat was almost ex- clusively carried on by two sects of Mo- hammedans, the Syrians, and the Boras, the former of whom were em...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal.'" [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 26 April 1850

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal.'" Sir,-There is a à ative near me in the Bush who has so far outraged the laws of England as to have taken unto himself two wives: Of course the Protector will hunt him out, and indict him for Bigamy-nous ver .rons. Your obedient servant, A LOOKER-ON. THE LEAD TRADE.--We ara happy to have it in our power to report considerable improvements in this important branch of the trade of the country. The year open- ed with a large demand for pig lead for shipment to the United States of America ; and this demand had steadily increased during the year. This is altogether a no- vel feuture, as the United States, instead of importing had for many years exported considerable quantities of this metal. These large shipments, combined with a more active demand from the continental ports, must have had a considerable influ- ence on the stocks in this country ; and for the information of those of our readers who are interested in this article we s\ib join a...
