Quarter Sessions, Jan. 5, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 January 1848

Quarter Sessions, Jan. 5,1848. W. H. MACKIE, ESQ., Chairman. AFTER an interval of nine months, cau- sed by the absence of sufficient business to call for the holding of a court, a General Quarter Sessions of the Peace, was held on Wednesday last, in the Court-House, at Perth, before W. H. Mackie, Esq. Chair- man, and a bench of Magistrates. In his charge to the Grand Jury, the Chairman adverted to the great number of aboriginal prisoners for trial, amounting to 21, and observed that this was in a great measure to be attributes, to the suspension of business for the last two Sessions; but, at the same time there was no doubt that from several causes, a large increase will before long take place in this class of of- fenders. Among these causes were to be mentioned the many new tribes which the increase of the ilocks and herds of settlers, will naturally bring us in contact with; it was now universally admitted that the country hitherto occupied for pasturage, as far insufficient for o...

Perth Town Trust. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 January 1848

rgy^ai'M«-uu*i»i'M i « 111 un M "uta Perth Town Trust. THE Annual Meeting of this body, held on Monday last, was more fully and re- spectably attended than usual, and we were rejoiced to perceive that those present ap- peared to have in some measure roused themselves from that fatal apathy to pub- lic affairs, with which there has hitherto been so much reason to charge the deni- zens of Western Australia. It has often been our lot to have attended meetings of public bodic3, at which, after waiting long after the,, hour named for assembling, not an individual appeared, save the Chairman or the Secretary. In fact the business of public bodies has hitherto been pretty ge- nerally left to look after itself; but let us hope that those days of evil to the colony -evil to the best interests of every indi dividual in it, are rapidly passing away: and the members of our community are not only awakening to a proper sense of their duties as citizens, but are also deter- mined to execute them t...

STEAM COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 January 1848

STEAM COMMUNICATION. In our last number we bii;fly adverted to a des- patch, addressed to the Governor of South Austra- lia by the Secretary of State for tho Colonies, da- ted Downing-strect, June 9,1847, on the subject of Steam communication between Great Britain and the Australian Colonies. The subject being one of great and absorbing in- terest to this colony, M e deem it expedient to place the matter more fully before our readers, by ex- tracting such portions of the despatch as appear to bear most especially on the subject, and with Buch comments as may arise in their perusal. The despatch above mentioned, encloses copies of correspondence "showing the plans of two char- tered companies which have been formod for that purpose, the one styled the "Indian and Austra- lian Royal Mail Steam Packet Company," which contemplates a junction with the line already es- tablished in the East, and to which, on the infor- mation before them, the Legislative Council of New South Wales appear ...

THE CENTRAL ROAD-TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 8 January 1848

THE CENTRAL ROAD-TRUST. The dissolution of the old road trust, and the appointment of a responsible Board of Commissioners in its place, if considered apart from the tax, upon Sandal-wood, ranks among the best acts of the Executive. In the. infancy of this new, and improved state of things, we shall deal gently with those who now have the control. The more youthful members of the board, too, are no doubt not a little inflated with their appointment, and it behaves us therefore to approach them with the semblance, at least, of humility and respect ; but we must refrain from indulging pleasantry at the expence of the newly constituted board; our present object being more to aid than condemn. Most of our friends beyond the hills will have rejoiced may be, at the remission of the toll at Mahogany Creek, upon carts laden with Sandal-wood; involving as it does the entire removal of the toll-bar. But however much this first decision of the board may chime in with the views of those desirou...

GOVERNMENT OF THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 January 1848

GOYEENMENT OP THE COLONIES. The Sydney Chronicle has the following, how far it is correct we know not, but how- ever absurd and impracticable the changea undoubtedly aro, regarding the Australian. colonies, we have had too much experience ol' the Dov/ning-street wisdom in colonial aflairs,.to bp much surprised if it proves to be correct: "A new system of government ia to be submitted to Parliament at the commence- ment of its first session. All the colonies in North America are to be placed under a Viceroy, Quebec to be the seat of Govern- ment, with Lieut.-Governors of Toronto, Frederieton, Halifax, St. Johns, and Char- lotte Town.

PUSEYISM IN N. S. WALES [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 January 1848

PUSEYISM IN N. S. WALES We are sorry to observe, by the Sydney journals, that the Puseyite forms and doc- trines, which have been so destructive of the unanimity, and temporal and spiritual influence of the Church of England, in the mother country, have spread their baneful influence to these colonies, and are now so rigidly ordered to be observed and carried out in all the churches throughout the Diocese of Australia, that it is likely to be the cause of secession from the Bishop, of some of the "church's ablest ministers." The Rev. Mr. Woodward, whom the Atlas designates as such, has already seceded, and fallen back upon an educational esta- blishment for his support rather than sub- mit to the "domineering spirit of the Bi- shop; and the degrading servility to which he appears to wish to reduce his clergy." Some of the Sydney papers are very indig- nant on this subject. The Atlas says : "This is the first stop towards an erup- tion in the Episcopalian Church in this Colony, and w...

THE SNOBS OF ENGLAND. BY ONE OF THEMSELVES. CHAPTER XI.—SNOBS AND MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 January 1848

THE SNOBS OE ENGLAND.. BY ONE OF THEMSELVES. CHAPTER XL-SNOBS AND MARRIAGE. Everybody of the middle rank who walks through this life with a sympathy for his companions on the same journey -at any rate, every man who has been jostling in the world for some three or four lustres-must make no end of melancholy reflections upon, the fate of those victims whom Society, that is, Snobbishness, is im- molating every day. With love and sim plicity and natural kindnes Snobbishness is perpetually at war. People dare not be happy for fear of Snobs. People dare not love for fear of Snobs. People pine away lonely under the tyranny of Snobs. Ho- nest kindly hearts dry up and die. Gallant generous kids, blooming with hearty youth, swell into bloated old-bachelorhood, and burst and tumble over. Tender girls wither into shrunken decay, and perish solitary, from whom Snobbishness has cut off the common claim to happiness and affection with which Nature endowed us all. My heart grows sad as I see the b...

Pickings from "Punch." LECTURE ON TIGHT LACING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 January 1848

Pickings, from "Punch." LECTURE ON TIGHT LACING. You are aware, young ladies, that by means of tight lacing, the waist of the female figure may be« mode to vie with that of the wasp, and to resemble the form of an hour-glass, or the letter X; thus very much improving its appearance. You have seen, perhaps, the statue of the Venus de Medicis ; and you know what, a fright of a figure it has, in consequence of the model from which it was taken evidently never having worn a corset. The rose, however, is never without the   thorn; the most agreeable evening party has its drawbacks. And so there are, unhappily, some unpleasant results conse- quent on compression, at the expense of which a slender waist is purchased. The circulating fluid, from a disagree- able law of nature, is forced up into the head. The colour of the fluid is rosy, as you know. The deilcate health attendant on tight lacing forbids it to adorn the cheek, and accordingly it is transferred to the nose; which ...

Miscellanea. The London journals state that "a free pardon" has been given to a convict named Bowers who, early list year,'was sentenced to fifteen"years' transportation for a crime of which he is now found to be innocent. The man must be grateful! A bottle was picked up by one of the Coast-guard officers at Mawgan Point, N.   Cornwall, with a small bit of paper in it, on which was the following inscription :- "The ship President is just lost; Nov. 10." It appears, to have been in the water a long time." It was found on Friday, June 25. -Correspondent of the Sun. Rouge, the. German religious reformer, has surrendered himself to the Prussian authorities in order to undergo the month's imprisonment to which, he-was sentenced in March, 1846,. for having preached with- out permission.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 15 January 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei" SATURDAY JANUARY 15, 1848. If there be one branch of the general weal, one source of public happiness, which above all others requires, nay, demands precautionary arrangements, it is that of public health. First, because of its great and paramount importance to the commu nity; and next, because it is least of all capable of bearing up against the insidious attacks of counteracting influence. It may be stated as a general proposition, that no community is properly governed which neglects such sanitory arrangements, as are most likely to prevent the importation or development of contagious disease; its mortality may be low and favorable for a time, but the season of devastation will arrive, and when the limited list of diseases which characterised that low mortality, shall have been suddenly swelled out by imported contagion, and our helpless children and more weakly colonists are cruelly decimated, then at length, but alas!, too late, w...
