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

Colonial Corn Growing. IN their estimation of the benefits which are likely to accrue from the formation of a Penal Establishment in this colony, our agriculturists appear to be somewhat, but we think needlessly, disheartened at the announcement we made a fortnight since, that they must not expect to obtain a higher price for their wheat than 5s. per bushel. In stating this, we did so upon the best authority, that of the importers of flour from the neighboring colonies, who universally acknowledge that if they could get good clean colonial wheat, delivered at the mills at 5s. per bushel, it would not pay them to import flour, but that above that price the foreign article will pay them better. This, although unfortunately a true state of the case, we are happy to think, not likely in future years to prevent our farmers from growing wheat at a pro- fit. That this could not be done at the present price of labor is doubtlessly true, but we have every reason to expect that much cheaper l...

New South Wales in ita Sixtysecond Year. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

New South Wales in ita Sixty second Year. The progress which New South Wales, viewed as the great necleus of Austrrlian colonisation, has accomplished within a term comparatively so brief, is without a parallel in the history of British settlements Whether we look at the extent of the po- pulation now domesticated on this great territory and its neighboring islands--at the opulent cities which adorn our coasts -at the marks of industry, wealth, and ci- vilisation which extend from our shores to the remate interior-or at the value of the produce annually shippod from our ports, and of the merchandise annually imported from various parts of the world, we may well be excused for dwelling on the won- derful fact that all this has been achieved within less than the life-time of a man. It has been achieved, too, without any of those extraordinary accidents to which some other countries are indebtedfor amushroom precocity of growth. We owe nothing to gold or precious stones. We have been t...

Australian Wine. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

Australian Wine. We find in the Sydney Morning Herald the following description of a colonial wine, which had gained the chief prize at the show of last season : Mr. Henry Whitaker, chemist and drug- gist, of Parramatta, has just received a prize for wine sent to the lato show, held in Sydney. The wine for which this prize has been awarded, was made by Mr. Whi- taker, from the Verdeilho, or commonly called Madeira grape, grown at a vineyard situated on the Dog-trap Jîoad, a few miles from Parramatta. This vineyard is six acres in extent, and seven years old ; the ground is composed of a stiff yellow clay loam, jtrenched two and a half feet deep, and the vines are grown to stakes, or commonly called the gooseberry bush fa- shion. The wine is called by the maker " Sauterne," and is of a beautiful amber colour, eighteen months old, and without I fortification of brandy or any other spirit; 1 iii fact tho wine is the pure juice of the grape, light unintoxicating, andpleasurably exhiliar...

Suppression of the Inquisition. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

Suppression of the Inquisition. In consequence of a decree of the Roinan Constituent Assembly, by which the sup- pression of the tribunal of the holy office, was resolved, the Government ordered that the Fathers of the Dominican order then inhabiting that vast locality should remove io the eonvent called "Della Minerva," the chief seat of their order. They were in number eight, exercising the functions of commissary, chancellor, &c; The doors were then carefully sealed by the Roman notary Caggiotti to prevent the abstraction of any object, and a keeper was appointed to the premises. These precautions taken, tho inventory was commenced. The first place visited was the ground floor of the edifice, where were the prisons, and the stables, coach-houses, kitchen, cellars, and other conveniences for the use of the as- sessor and the father inquisitors. This part of the building was to be immediately prepared for the reception of the civic ar tillery^ with the train belonging to it...

Bunbury. From our own Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

Bunbury* From our own Correspondent. Thursday, 2iWi April.-When the post left last week I was able only to make hurried mention of a murder which had been commit t ed near the "Won- nerup Estuary. Since then the native, Duncan, has been captured and safely lodged in the gaol here. Some days ago tho Native Constable, with two Fable assistants, thinking that Duncan had made his escape in the direction of Cape Natu- raliste, turned their steps thither, and on the nighf of the 22nd instant, having met with no previous trace of the pursued, drew near to a native fire, from which a shout proceeded. One of the Nativo Constable's companions, happening to be Duncan's brother, readily recoguiscd the voice of the man they were seeking, who was easily engaged in con- versation, while the Constable carno up by stealth from the rear and secured hiui with handouffs. I am as yet able to give you but an imporfeet ac couut, as the natives only came in last night ; the prisoner however has been secure...

The "Empress." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

The "Empress." OTTE contemporary has animadverted rather strongly upon the Harbour Master at Fremantle, with regard to the running of the Empress upon the submerged rooks in the Southern Channel. We aro not prepared to go quite so far in our con- demnation of that officer, considering how recently the passage in question has been opened to navi- gation, and the destruction of one of the most es- sential marks, by which Lo could have judged of the correct course. We aro averse to condemn- ing any person without sufficient proof, that he ha3 acted m a careless and culpable manner ; and in this instance such proof does not appear yet to have been advanced. We arc not entering into auy defence of Capt. Scott, not being in a position to warrant our doing so, yet wo scarcely consider it fair to condemn him before any public statement of defence has been made by him. We certainly consider such a statement is not only required for the satisfaction of the public, but also in justice to himse...

Miscellaneous. POET UNDERWOOD-EUROPEAN SQUAT- TERS-Nothing could exceed the wild and picturesque beauty of this magnificent lake- like bay, surrounded by green and forestt covered mountains, almost as untouched as when Cook first entered it, in his good ship Eesolution, and finding no anchorage, made fast to the trunk of a tree with a hawser. Here and there in little pictures- que bights and in sandy bays, or in the angie of a rock glen, might be seen the rude hut and small patch of garden-ground in- dicating the presence of a European: a retired whaler, perhaps, or a runaway sailor or mayhap an escaped convict who fives on year after year in the same solitude, rarely exchanging a word with a countryman, his life almost perfectly idle, and possibly, to his surprise, perfectly harmless ; his wants are amply supplied by his patch of potatoes and cabbages ; his pork is furnished by his Maori neighbours, the bay teems with fish, and his only society is his Maori wife and a family of hal...

Colonial Penny Postage. (From the Manchester Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

Colonial Penny Postage. {Fro7ii the Manchester Examiner.) Considering how much is said, by men of all parties in parliament, in favor of vo- luntary emigration to our own colonies, as a mode of relieving distress among the working class, it is surprising that minis- ters should be so backward in proposing useful measures for the promotion of that object. Take the case of our colonial post- age system, for example. Notwithstanding all that has been said and written about the advantages of cheap postage to our co- lonies, government seems as far as ever from taking any step to realise those advantages Thanks to Rowland Hill, and tho well-or- ganised pressure of public opinion, the cost of postage in Great Britain has been re- duced to a point so low as to oxcite the ad- miration of the whole civilized world. But in doing this, our legislators did not take into account the effect which so marvellous a reduction in the rate of home postage would necessarily have in making the cost of a ...

Federal Union of the Australian Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850

Federal Union of the Australian Colonies. The absurd project conceived by Earl Grey of uniting in a federal Union all tho Australian Colonies, appears to .have met with a decided opposition in England, nor is it more favorably considered in the tío lomes, more particularly in Van Diemen's Land and South Australia, both of which settlements justly view with much concern, the overwhelming influence in tbe Union which New South "Wales would possess. The anomalies in the federative scheme, to which we have before attracted the at- tention of our readers, were also exposed in the ¡strongest manner by Lord Lyttle- ton and Lord Stanley. The first of those noble lords remarked : The noble earl (Grey) had argued as if the set- tlement of th,o constitution of the great« central go- vernment of ¿few South Wale3 was left to the voice of these new legislatures, but this was not the fact. (Hear.) It was a matter left; to the voice of two of the legislatures, whereas there were in ali, five direct...
