The Editor of this Journal invites tlie free expres- sion of tlie opinions of Ids Correspondents, but can notbe held responsible for Hiern. The name and .address of the writer must accompany each com- munication. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." Sir,-I noticed a paragraph in the Inquirer of tliia week stating that differences had arisen be- tween the Moral Agent and the Superintendent of the Native Penitentiary on the Island of Eottnest, and that the Moral Agent received a reprimand from His Excellency the Governor, the Colonial Secretary, and the Protector of Aborigines. If this report is correct, the influence of the Moral Agent so far as morality is concerned, is struck down at once ; because no man can be respected who prefers malicious and groundless accusations against his neighbour in a secret way for the pur- pose of worldly gain. _ AS JÜNGilSHMAN.

Meeting of the Mining Company. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 April 1848

Meeting of the Mining Company. The adjourned meeting of this company was heldrat Leeder's Hotel, on thev 12th inst., when the assemblage" was pretty numerous. George Leake Esq., M.C., was proposed as Chairman by Mr. Jecks, and the motion was seconded by Lionel Samson Esq and unanimously agreed to. - * The Chairman explained to the meet- ing that the object contemplated in calling it, was the election of four new members of the committee, in the room of four who had resigned their offices. He (the chair- man) and E. M'B. Broun, Esq., were the only two members of the former Commit- tee who had not resigned. Mr. Samson observed that the Company could not exist without a Committee to carry on their affairs, and he could not help remarking, that it was unfair in members to resign their duties when the funds of the Company were not so flourish- ing as was at one time anticipated. The former Committee had fallen asleep, and the object of the present meeting was ré- action. Mr. Jecks observ...

York Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 April 1848

York Races. -* The York Races, held on Thursday and ^and Friday, the 6th and 7th instant, at- tracted a tolerably numerous assemblage, among whom were to be seen many of the dwellers on this side of the hills. The running howeverjwas far inferior to that at the late Perth meeting, owing, in some de- gree, to the unfavorable state of the course, the surface of which was unfortunately rough and uneven, and much impeded the speed of the horses.

NEWS BY THE "VIXEN." Mauritius. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 April 1848

NEWS BY THE «VIXEN." Mauritius. The intelligence received by the above vessel is but of little general interest. The effects of the failure of the London houses .connected with the island, had begun to manifest themselves by the stoppage of Messrs. Barlow & Co. and Adams & Co.; the former had offered to make an aban- donment of their affairs without reserve, on condition of an acquitment for all claims against thom, which proposal had been ac- ceded to ; ' the terms offered by Adams & Co., 30 per cent, payable in three years by equal instalments, had not been so favo- rably received. Business appears to be very dull, a general mistrust pervading the mercantile portion of the community. Pro- duce was to be procured for cash on very low terms, the merchants preferring a pre- sent small loss, to the greater risk of ship- ping to England on consignment. Ac- counts have reached us, which state that the market for cows in milk is overstocked and that they are only ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 April 1848

Local Intelligence. CURIOUS DISCOVERIES ON THE ABROLHOS ISLANDS.-During the late occupation of these Islands by the Pelsart Fishing Com- pany, numerous discoveries have been made-relies of the wreck of Houtman and the visit of Admiral Pelsart. They consist of part of a sword on which is the name of "Houtman," an officers epaullette, belt buckles, skeleton's, coins, &c. The discovery of the first skeleton was made by Mr. Willis, on the spot where he had spread his blanket, and in the morning finding his pillow harder than was exactly pleasant, looked for the cause, when he found his bed composed of human bones. Mr. Willis also discovered water on a third Island, contained in a well in the rock, by the side of which in the rock, was an iron bolt, firmly fixed, most probably left by Houtman ; this Island has been appropriately called " Bolt Island," also a large round hole, with a great quantity of bones in it. On one of the Mangrove Islands, skeletons were found, also a quan- ...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 April 1848

To the Editor of the " Independent Journal." Sir,-A Scottishman of the name of James Miller arrived in this colony in the employ of T. N. Yule, Esq. about 17 years ago, less or more. Miller has borne an exeellent character as an in- dustrious hard working man, and has honestly paid his way whereever he has been, but strange to say, he and some other Scottishmen here have entirely forfeited the national character of nig- gardly conduct in money matters so profusely lavished by the unthinking on the natives of Caledonia, and Miller like others of his country- men has not been a miser. Our first Governor was a Scottishman and spent £10,000, of his pri- vate fortune in the colony, independent of his miserable salary of £800 *$. annum. Our first Colonial Secretary was a Scottishman and the whole colony is aware that he did not hoard up treasures on earth. He that knows a little of the administration of Governor Irwin will admire it enough to fall down and worship it ; but he that knows i...

His companion, Mrs. Richard- son had taken the name of M'Casey, and both had taken their passages in the Ham- let for London, to sail the day following their arrest.There was a frightful in- crease of crime in Melbourne, principally caused by the importation of Pentonvilli ans and Exiles.The newly arrived En- glish bishop had refused to associate in private with Roman Catholic clergymen. .Commercial matters were in a bad state at Port Philip.The Indian andi Australian Company's first steamer, the Director, a screw-propeller, is to sail with their manager on board, in the middle of December as the latest possible period.

Exploration in N. S. Wales [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 April 1848

Exploration in N. S. Wales Mr Kennedy, Sir Thomas Mitchell's siiojessor in the arduous work of geogra pical discovery, had been successful in the chief object of the expedition entrusted to him, and had returned in safety. It will be remembered by many of our readers that Sir Thomrs Mitchell, in his last expe- dition, came upon a river which he called the Victoria; and travelled along its banks till he reached lat. 24 15, and long. 144 30, at which point it was trending North, and in his opinion must run to the Gulf of Carpentaria. The object of the expedi- tion under Mr Kenedy was to ascertain the course of this large River. He began to trace it from the point where Sir Thomas Mitchell left off, and found that the Northern trend lasted but a very short dislM^fce, when it turned to the "West for a'^^miles, then to the South-west for 120 miles, and then it pursued a nearly southern course, along which Mr Kennedy traced it-to lat. 27.56, long. 142., when it lost itself in some sandy b...

Railway Survey in N. S. Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 April 1848

Railway Survey in N. S. Wales. A select committee having been ap- pointed on the 6th of August, 1846, to collect subscriptions for a railway survey, and to cause such survey to be made, a public meeting was held on the 27th of January to receive the report of the com- mittee, together with the plans and report of Mr. Thomas Woore, who had under- taken the direction of the survey. From these documents we glean that, after a personal application for pecuniary assis- tance to His Excellency the Governor of New South Wales, a letter, under date the 19th of August, was forwarded to the i Colonial Secretary, in which, after specify- ing the principal grounds of the applica- tion, it was stated that the assistà5Éix,at that time sought from the GovermXnt applied only to the survey of lines connect- ing Sydney with Goulburn and with the Hawkesbury and Nepean Eivers, and stating that a subscription had been com- menced for defraying the expense of such» I survey.

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 April 1848

New Zealand. "We have intelligence from New Zealand to the 5th Febuary. All was quiet. The Governor and Lieutenant-Governor had been at "Wanganui, endeavoring to patch up a peace with the rebel murderers. They had sent an invitation to a meeting to Mamuku, the chief miscreant, who modestly replied that he would condescend to meet the Governor, if he came to see him, but would have nothing to say to the Lieutenant-Governor. We wonder if the two travellers ever met anything like this in their peregrinations. Te Bauparaha, the robber, murderer, and mischief maker or excellence, of the southern districts, br twenty or thirty years, last past, who was caught in the act of hatching a, con- spiracy to tomahawk the whites upwards of a year ago, had been set at liberty, and it is recorded that TeBauparahas' son had entertained their Excellencies in the Eu- ropean fashon. It is particularly stated that the table was covered with a table S cloth, and the guests were provided with knives and fo...

The Editor of this Journal invites the free exprès sion of the opinions of his Correspondents, but can- not be held responsible for them. The name and address of the writer must accompany each com- munication. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." Sir,-It is not often that a correspondent ven- tures to fall foul of the Editor he addresses ; and if he has the temerity to enter the literary arena, and throws down his gauntlet with a view to differ with such an all powerful antagonist, it is seldom he escapes a severe handling for his pre- sumption. In this letter, however, it is not my intentions to provoke your editorial wrath ; and, although I purpose running Bide by side with you whilst endeavoring to probe the fallacies of your last leader, yet I will strive to effect my purpose in all humility and courtesy. , Tou banter the authorities for increasing the rate of postage upon foreign letters received in the colony, imposed to remedy in some measure the extravagant disproport...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 April 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei." SATUÍSlYrAjPSÍÍr22rÍ848. OF all the duties which fall within the province of a 'public journalist, that of having to find fault with unpaid public functionaries is the most ungrateful. We would cheerfully write from week to week in encouragement of all who volun- teer their time and ability in the public service, more particularly as we every day witness the difficulty, amounting almost to impossibility, of inducing competent citizens and settlers to take upon them- selves the trouble of honorary pubhVtrusts, But when we perceive that offices, subject to election, are conducted by gentlemen, who, in defiance of the wishes of theil): constituents, and in negligence of remon- strance both private and public, pertina- ciously adhere to their preconceived opinion, we feel imperatively called upon to wave our scruples in favor of a faith- ful echo of public opinion. Once or twice it has been our task to notice the comparatively slow progres...

China. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 22 April 1848

China. The Singapore Free Press, of 30th De- cember, which contains a full account of a very lamentable occurrence at Canton. No less than six Englishmen, Messrs. Rutter, Brown, Small, Bellamy, Balkwill, and M'Cart, had been barbarously mur- dered by the savage villagers, whose threats had been too much neglected, On the forenoon of Sunday, 5th Dec, the party left in a Hong boat, to proceed a short way up the river, and then land for & walk, intending to return for dinner. By evidence afterwards obtained, it ap- peared so soon as the party landed, the gentlemen were attacked, surrounded, and their retreat intercepted by a large num- ber of villagers. Two being armed, drew their pistols, and shot from three to five Chinese. Those being killed, the others fled, and were pursued from village to vil- lage, till they-were all destroyed. On these facts being made known, a strong desire was evinced by the British community to proceed to the villages, and demand their countrymen dea...

NEWS BY THE «ARPENTEUR.» . By. the arrival of the Arpenteur, we have received intelligence from South Australia up to the 8th ultimo ; Yan Diemen'a Land Feb. 23 ; and NewSouth Wales Feb.-28. - The Arpegtexvr was obliged to put back in consequence of a heavy gale. She ha brought back some old settlers and one o two others, but no shepherds» save one who was landed at the Sound ; this has arisen from the men fearing they could not ob- tain more than £25 ^ annum, and want- ing £30, for which sum no less than 40 would have embarked; their, fears were, however, fallacious, as 12 had been enga- ged for by the agent at the larger sum, and as the vessel returns immediately, we may hope ere long to receive this seasonable addition to a class now so much in request; we also understand, that several others who have left this colony, intend returning without delay, having found that Western Australia, if not so gay as her southern neighbour, is quite as good a place to make money in, and a much...
