Poet's Corner. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 May 1850
Poet's Corner. The following humorous description of the trials and vexations of a settler in New South Wales, was privately circulated in Sydney a few years since:— All ye on Emigration bent, With, home and England discontent, Come listen to my sad lament, And beware of the bush of Australia. I once possessed five thousand pounds, Thinks I how very grand, it sounds For a man to be farming his own grounds, So I'll go to the bush of Australia. But on the voyage the Ship was lost, In dismal plight I reached the coast, And was very near being made a roast, By the savages of Australia. Illawarra, Mittagong, Parramatta, Wollongong, If you would not become An Ourang Outang, Don't go to the bush of Australia. Escaped from thence, I sighted on A fierce bushranger with his gun, Who borrowed my garments every one, For himself in the bush of Australia. But Sydney town I reached at last, And then I thought all danger past, That I would make my fortune fast, In this promised land of Australia. S...

The Magistrates and Publican's Licenses. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 May 1850
The Magistrates and Publican's Licenses. THE Publican's Licensing Act of this colony, we believe, requires that before a License shall be granted certain conditions are to be complied with, such as suitable premises, &lt;fcc; however, whether this is so or not, it is generally supposed that the ob- ject of granting such licenses is to secure for the public, accommodations in the way of lodging and boarding, and that it is not to be considered as a mere permit for the sale of spirituous liquors only. In other colonies and in England,no magistrate wo uh^ grant a license without being perfectlysa tisfied that the applicant's house possessed such accommodation as would afford lodg- ing room to travellers, and in the South Australian journals we notice frequent in- stances of applications being rejected, be- cause the house either was not completed or was not of a sufficient size. We regret to hear thjfr needful precaution is not at- tended Co by Western Australian magis- trates,...

Bunbury. From our own Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 May 1850
Bunbury. From our own Correspondent. Thursdag, May 2,1850.-I am unable as yet to &nbsp; give you any further particulars connected with the native Duncan in confinement here on a charge of murder. He is in safe custody, and awaiting an &nbsp; examination before the Magistrates. &nbsp; The boy Pickering is also still a prisoner here. I trust the authorities at head-quarters appreciate the safe mode of detention in Bunbury, and that, when once handed over again, they will provide for him better than they did before. A small craft has been for several months past in active preparation by Mr. Adams, of this place, and will be fit for sea in about six weeks or two months. A gentleman recently arrived from King George's &nbsp; Sound brings no news of interest. The natives of Albany are frequently insufferable nuisances. They &nbsp; erect their huts in the very town, importune the inhabitants with begging in the streets, and fre- quently disturb the ...
Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 May 1850
Miscellaneous. The following letter, addressed by Tho- mas Carlyle to J. C. Êtomons, and pubb'sh-. ed in a. work entitled Tactics for the Tima, a* reaards the Condition and Treatment of the danyerout Claise*, contains a bold sug-v gestion at regards paupers and pauperising We would like to know,how our parochial boards relish the proposal to mane slaves of their paupers. Mr. Carlyle says A penuasien if rapidly spreading that pauperism absolutely must be dealt with in some more con- clusive way before long, and the goneral outlook is towards waste lands' mid colonies for that object. Coneurringheartily onthoso two propositions, both the general and the particular, my own sad convic- tion is, that before either paupers can be " dealt with," or waste lands and colonies got to turn out other than infatuations and futilities for them, Go- vernment must do the most original thing propo- sed to it iu these time«-admit that paupers are really slaves, men fallen into disfranchisenient, who c...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 May 1850
To the Editor of Vie " Independent JonrnaV Sir,-La Flour's lamentation ¡over the"1 fate of his ass was never-so' intense as has long been my grief for the miserable.state of my road ; I say my road because the public, in honor of my services, were pleased to name it after me. The fact of the road being acknowledged and proclaimed by go- vernment, ia indeed pleasing; and no doubt I shall eventually have the pleasure of see- ing it a splendid road, praised and acknow- ledged as such by its old opponents, and by all who may travel upon it. The opposition it long met with does not at all surprise me ; since looking into human nature,"I lind, and more especially among the civilized race, that the spirit of opposition and self-jmerest engenders the most bitter rancour that can be found to disturb the peace^of mankind. Opposition confronted our early struggles, while Inte- rest stood armed to the teeth, and Self, like all good cryers, rung his bell when he was paid for it. Interest, deprec...

Life Assurance. (From the Weekly Chronicle.) .Suppose you wore one of a crowd of 10, 000 persons, exposed t.i the random shots of an archer discharging 150 shuts per year - and each arrow destroying the life of a man. As you heard, moro than twice a minute, the twang of the sounding string, and the whirr of the fatal shaft-as you saw victim after victim smitten down sometimes on the extreme verge of the multitude-sometimes close by your own side-would not the preear.jusnesäof your life be very urgently impressed upon your If you havc'-n'wile and children dependent oii'Votir existence for their daily bread, would not tin» chance of their being sud- denly reduced to beggary by tin1 stroke ol' the next, arrow present itself with startling vividness to your minti.

Practical Christianity. (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 May 1850
Practical Christianity. (From the Spectator.) DOCTRINE floats unou the uncertain wa- ters of language, and cannot but share \n. in its fluctuations as, the stream grows ' broader and more open to the winds of thought ; but there aro things more stod« t fast than doctrine. The spectator of the - world's lifo, through the last two genera- tions, cannot fail to derive consolation and ' support under every ^ioubt from observing the remarkable train of phenomona in the matter of ecclesiastical affairs. \Vo tire . not now considering any theological doc- trines, their nature and merits,-which is indeed a function that we uniformly dis- claim ; but we arc simply reviewing the relation of suely. matters to the external world, intellectual and material. We ob- serve that while controversy has not at all relaxed in its activity, it has lost much of its malignancy, on ill sides ; as if men, through all their dissensions, moro firmly united in tho faith that with the develop- ment of human facu...
The Harbour. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 May 1850
The Harbour. THE probable supply of convict labour for employment upon the public works of the colony, has naturally raised the question as to what is the most important and desira- ble work to which the labor shall be first applied. It appears to be universally con- sidered that no object is of so much rela- tive importance to the general interests of the colony, as the formation of a safe har- bour or roadstead. As to how this requi- site is to be best effected, different opinions are entertained: some desire to see an at- tempt made 1o open the river, either by a passage through the bar at its embouchure, or by cutting a ship-canal from Rocky Bay to the sea; others again deride this project, maintaining the greater feasibility and use- fulness of increasing the security of Gage's Roads, by forming fixed and floating break- waters to counteract the effects of those winds to which it is exposed. In considering these "projects we must examine the objections urged against each. To th...

America. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850
America. Sostile proceedings in Central America. TJie Isle of Tigre taken possession of by the British Government. Intelligence which has just reached us through New York, Í3 of no ordinary mo- ment. According to the American papers Mr. Chatfield, the British Charge d'Affairs to Guatemala, had on the 16th October last, arrived with an armed force in the gulf of Fonscca, on the Pacific coast of Central America, and taken possession of the Island of Tigre "in the name of the British ^ueen." The states of Honduras and San Salvador have each of them been guilty of outrageous acts, in which much valuable property of British subjects has been unlawfully confiscated, for the pro- motion of state objects, or wantonly de- stroyed to compel subservience to the views' of their successive governments. The state of Honduras recently, on some assu- med non-compliance with regulations whiuh it was not within its jurisdiction to enforce, ordered the seizure and destruction of some mahogany works of...
