Mauritius. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

Mauritius. We have news from this port to the 7th March. j A fearful hurricane had taken place in that island on the night of the 28th Fe- bruary and morning of Mardi 1st, which had done considerable damage to the plan- tations, and, it is feared, will greatly re- duce the approaching sugar crop. Seventeen vessels were more or less in- jured. In sugar, there was little doing, and the market was dull, with a slight decline. The stock on hand was good. Loaf and crush- ed sugars were very rare and much sought aftor at full quotations.

Bunbury. From our own Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

Bunbury. From our own Correspondent. Thursday, May 9, 1850.-Arrangements have been made and articles of agreement drawn up for a Whaling Company for the ensuing season. Some alterations and additions have been made, but the leading promoters of the scheme are .the same as last year. Wo heartily wish them success, and ample remuneration for their perseverance. I um happy to say that timber-cutting will re- commence upon an enlarged scale. Mr P. Clifton has already engaged the most active hands in this neighborhood, who, with that energetic gentleman at their head, will doubtless cart in sufficient tim- ber this year to freight three vessels. These on- ward movements will tell their own tale for tho Southern side of the colony. A native, who was the only witness of the late murder, has not yet made his appearance, although every means have been taken to find him out. With these wild fellows it would seem that catching the evidence is oftentimes a more difficult matter than securing a ...

Singapore. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

Singapore. At midnight on ¡Sunday, the 17th Feb- ruary, the H. C. steamer Feroze, arrived at Singapore, having on board the Most Noble the Marquess of Dalhouse and Mar- chioness of Dolhousie, and the Governor General's suite. At half past nine, His Excellency and the Marchioness landed, and were received at the landing-place by the heads of departments, the officers and agents of the Court of Judicature, the merchant*, and thousands of natives, whose varied dresses and smiling faces must have been novel and gratifying. His Highness« the ïomongong and suite were also at the landing-place. The Chinese had arranged themselves in due order along the beach, each tribe under its peculiar and charac- teristic banner, whilst the Klings were gaily decorated in their best clothes, and joined in the shout of welcome that greeted the Governor-General's ears. The officers and troops of the 51st M.N.I, were also on the spot. The shipping in the harbour were decorated wTith flags and banners, and ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

Local Intelligence. A letter received by a gentleman in Perth from Major Bush, reports the sale in India of his horse Garroogin by ÈLargeavx, for the sum of £300. We much regret to hear that the lambing sea- son ia proceeding very unfavourably in (he "hill" districts, consequent upon the scarcity of feed ari- sing from the paueity of rain j in many instances, we are informed, the ewes are so reduced that the lambs die soon after they are dropped. .IVfaster Pickering on Friday last was favored in having three dozen lashes administered to him in the most approved manner, arid a similar dose will be given him after an interval of three weeks. As it cannot now be supposed, a'fter such repeated trials, that flogging will have any effect in defer- ring Pickering from attempting to escape, v>e should like to know its purpose. It may be that the Government seek by this means sonic satisfac- tion for the mortification and expense arising from the culprits frequent levantings ; it seems ho...

California. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

California. AVe have intelligence from the gold coun- try, by way of Hobart Town, to the 15th January. The Zylon, a fine ship of 500 tons register, left San Erancisco on that clay, touching at Tahiti on the 7th Febru- ary, and bringing back to Hobart Town a portion of the cargo of the Spartan, from thence to California. The city of San Erancisco had been al- most entirely destroyed by fire, but was rapidly being rebuilt. The arrivals from the United States were exceedingly numerous. The following is an extract from a letter received in Hobart Town from a Tasma- nian recently settled in California : " This is the world turned upside down; awful sufferings amongst respectable men who are unaccustomed to labour, and are unemployed. Hundreds are, for food, obliged to wheel the mud, and endeavour to roll casks out of the dirt. A labourer may earn 5 or 6 dollars per day, and it will take all of it to support him, in fact he can scarce live a day upon it. Murders and robberies frighten peo...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

South Australia. A second Judge of the Supreme Court of South Australia had been appointed in the person of G. J. Crawford, Esq. The Report of the Directors of the Bur- ra Burra Mines presented at the Eifth An- nual Meeting had been published. The dividends already paid amouut to £172,480 and the Directors seem to be fully war- ranted in promising two other dividends of £200 per cent, each in June and Septem- ber next, so that the total amount paid to the Shareholders within five years from the commencement of the Association's opera- tions is likely to amount to no less a sum than £221,760 on a capital of twelve thou- sand'three hundred and twenty pounds ster- ling. The returns for so small an amount of paid-up capital is enormous, but the shareholders are encouraged to hope that the best is yet to come, for the Directors say that, " should the present prosperous state of the Company's affairs continue, they will repeat the £200 per cent, divi- dends quarterly."

India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

India. The Commander-in-chief seems determi- ned to make a thorough reform in the. ser- vice. The general order shows that it is ¡?not to subordinate officers he intends to confine his attentions. We have never read anything more sharp, stern, and de cisive, or about which it was less possible that there should be any mistake, A more plain speaking document it has not been our lot to peruse. He calls a spade a spade with a vengeance. No regrets, no pallia- ting remarks. " Gentlemen, you do not know your business ; learn it ; do it ; or go."

The "Champion" from South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 17 May 1850

The "Champion" from South Australia. THE Champion, arrived on Sunday last from South Australia, has brought some impor- tant intelligence with regard to the future destinies of this colony. The tenor of this news is to the effect that the Home Government, after a neglect of twenty years, has determined (we quote on tho authority of a letter received in S. Australia from Mr. J. Hutt) upon doing all in its power to forward the prosperity of the settlement, and in doing so will spare no cost! How or by what means the Home Government will endeavor to effect this object, or what it is which lias at last aroused its sympathy towards us, does not appear; but; we may,surmise it is in gratitude for our acceptance of a portion of British felonry, and, truly, we must say we deserve to be well ti) ought of by the Se- cretary of State, for our consenting to what has been refused by every other English colony. The intentions of the Home Go- vernment with regard to sending convicts hither, are not...

BEiTÍSII INTELLIGENCE. The Queen, the Prince Consort, and the Koyal Family were still at Windsor, and in good health. The New Year had opened favorably on the London Stock Exchange-Consols hav ihg touched 97£ (ex dividend) 01*98^ with dividend, although they af'teru ards receded 3-8ths per cent. The foreign market alto- gether looked much better ; and the Hail way Share Market held firm. The chief political event of the day seemed to be the resignation of Mr. John O'connell as member for Limerick. The hon. gentlemau had retired into private life, and, in his valedictory address, pleaded pe- cuniary reasons for his resignation. On the 1st January, Louis Napoleon entertained the Marshals of France ; and subsequently orders were sent to the com- mandants of frontier fortresses, to put them into a complete state of defence, pre- paratory to a general inspection. The cold in London was very severe ; se- veral accidents had occurred in the parka to skaters. Among others the well know n Mr...

The Geraldine Mine of Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 May 1850

The Geraldine Mine of Western Australia. APTEU many¡ abortive discoveries in the mineral field, our Western neighbours have at length had an opportunity of an- nouncing to the world some very valuable results of successful exploration within their teiritory. The prospectus of the Geraldine Mine of the Western Austra- lians, which appears in our columns this day, is sufficiently explanatory as to the locality and circumstances of that extra- ordinary property, whilst the careful as- says and j udjeiousV remarks of Dr Davy materially assist the ordinary reader by the plainness of the statements and their perspicuity. We can have no hesitation in declaring our belief that the discovery will prove a most fortunate one for Western Australia, for although the ores which have been brought here by Mr Owen are not rich in silver, ,the per centage of lead is high, and the local abundance of the mineral beyond a doubt. The existence of coal in* the immediate vicinity has also been ascer- taine...
