Penal Reform. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 April 1848

Penal Reform. For the information of the advocates for making this colony a Penal Sttlement and to quiet their doubts as to the extinction, of Transportation to Australia, as a pu- nishment, we extract the following from the Hohart Town Courier of Jan. 12, a persual of which will, we think put an end to all their hopes of ever attaining their wishes : " We are enabled to lay before our readers an official statement made by Lieutenant-Colonel Jebb, the Inspector of Prisons, «at the second session of the " Congress for Penal Eeform," held at Brussels on the 20th September. The object of the Society is the improvement of the class* of punishment called secon- dary, which, it is conceived, are not made so conclusive to the reform of the charac- ter of the criminal as they might be. The separate system is advocated by the Society as the best. The statement of Colonel Jebb, sanctioned by the Secretary of State for the Home Department, may- be taken as conclusive that1, the British Governm...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 April 1848

THE             INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi,, voxj Dei"   From what we have heard, we gather that the Local Government have some idea of again commencing operations on the Bar, but how it is to be done, whethor by con- tractor the former peddling method, of blowing up one piece and then waiting .Vf I v" < three or four months, we cannot learn. "We do hope thô Goveniment intend to exhibit both a little common-sense and enterprise in the matter ; they have in all conscience been dallying with it long enough, and probably when they have had a little more talk over it, and a few more pleasure parties down the river to look at it, they will set about it in right earnest. It has always been evident enough to all practical men that the only way in which it would most effectually and promptly be removed,is by putting the job out to con- tract ; that if the Government themselves undert...

America. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 April 1848

America. The " Hobarton Advertiser" gives news-   from the seat of war in Mexico to the 23rd September. It was verbally reported   that, by an insurrection at Puebla and Mexico the Yankee had lost two thousand men. There was a report of two fights with some of the best Mexican troops, in which, of course, the Mexicans had the worst. But it is evident the Americans must be in a bad way, from the result of the following propositions :- The letters say that Mr. Trist's proposa tions were these-       That the people of the United States would have nothing to claim from Mexico for damages occasioned by this war : that the United States would have the privilege   of establishing two factories in Upper - California ; and that the Mexican govern- ment could, after that time (the time is   not mentioned in the despatch) if it   choose renew this article of the treaty.   This ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 29 April 1848

Iiocal Intelligence. The Rev. Mr. Boyce, the General Su- perintendent (or perhaps speaking pro- perly, Bishop) of the Wesleyan Missions in Australia, arrived in South Australia by the steamer Juno, on the 4th March on a visit to the mission in that colony. The Rev. gentleman intended to have extended his journey to this colony, but pressing affairs connected with his office in Sydney, compels his immediate return to that city, and his visit to this colony is therefore unavoidably postponed for the present. -S»®«B> During the stay of the Vixen at the Mauritius it was reported in that Island, that Capt. Fitzgerald was invested by the Home Government with unlimited powers for the purpose of furthering the advance of this colony towards a state of pros- perity. The Vixen was sold on Thursday-4ast, for the sum of £360 ; Messrs. Thomas were the purchasers. ?* 9 »-?

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 6 May 1848

To the Editor of the " Independent Journal." Sir,-That the articles against the addi- tional government charge of 2d upon ship letters, were written by a contributor to your journal, is evident ; though the fact .does not surprise me. The writer's opinion is set forth with such characteristic ex- pression that, like the 'reeds of the courtier of King Midas, the very sound of the words of his publications, is sufficient to betray the secret of their authorship. It is pleasing to find myself differing with a gentleman, who, in noble negligence of poignant witticism, can calmly attend to the main point between us, and who, in endeavoring to maintain his opinions, does not sacrifice the honorable feeling he evi- dently possesses. It is not my intention to repeat my for- mer arguments ; they are before the pub- lic, and I see no reason in the least to modify them. That I have chosen the better side, would appear by the fact, that, whilst fruitlessly striving to detect mis- takes in my st...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAîTMTF6rÏ848. We have long been endeavoring to ascer- tain what the Central Board of Works are about-what great schemes of inter- nal lines of communication they are about to set on foot-how much better they act, than the defunct Road Trust, but hitherto without success. A short time since, they certainly set forth a notice, inform- ing the public of their having decided on some lines and having others in contem- plation, but' farther than that all their movements may be summed up as nil. We have, however, lately received some little information of the doings of the distinct committee having superinten- dence at York, or thereabouts, and cer- tainly, if our information be correct, they are carrying on a similar course of fraud on the public purse, to that pursued under the old system, when the cele- brated job of the well on the York road} and other similar freaks, were perpetrated. It appears some new lines are being cleared, o...

[advbetisbment.] More York Magisterial proceedings. To the Editor of the "Independent Journal" Sir,-I hand you the following plain statement of facts, which have lately oc- curred, connected with York Justice. A shepherd of the name of William Corn- wall engaged himself for one year to Mr. Edmund Lennard, of St. Aubyns, in the York district, nephew of E. P. B. Lennard, Esq., on the Swan. Cornwall signed the agreement on the express understanding, from the nephew, that he had taken the farm of St. Aubyns on lease from the uncle, and that the uncle would have nothing to do with Cornwall as shepherd, owing to cer- tain particular objections Btated by Corn- wall, which it would be improper to men- tion in a public print. The agreement was witnessed by two parties at St. Au- byns, John Beay and John Burns, who were present during the whole transac- tion, and who at the very moment Corn Wall signed the document, heard Mr. E. Lennard assent to what he insisted on be- fore he affixed his si...

To the Editor of the *' Independent Journal" Sir,-I cannot refrain from presenting a line of condolence, congratulation, anc advice, to the unfortunate Exporters of Sandal-wood, to China. It is a bad job, but it might have been worse. It was a fortunate circumstance for you, that the wicked brains of out Executive had not begun to hatch, though, probably, the pro- cess oí incubation was going on, that most odious, unnatural, impolitic, and disgust- ing Export-tax-truly it is a chicken of their own begetting, and presents their feathers and features to the very life, at at once ignoble, bloated, and vile-fortu- nate 'circumstance olid I say? yes and a profitable one too, or you had paid £50 export duty-the loss of weight being 10 tons to the 100, would have made it £55 ; congratulate yourselves on this narrow es- cape, and do not forget to pay that respect which is due to the "powers that be."

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 6 May 1848

To Hie Editor of the " Independent JournaV Sir,-Being one deeply interested in the future success of Western Australia, as a valuable de« pendence of the British Crown, I cannot allow the subject of our Local Government to escape with- out further remark. We, as a colony, are professedly governed by the laws of England ; and what are these laws ? There are three Estates of the Realm in England -King, Lords, and Commons, and no bills of the British Government, or, rather, Acts of Parlia- ment, can pass as Law, until such have received the sanction of the whole three, when the subjects of that Empire, over which the sun never sets, are bound to obey them. But, mark the difference between England and her Colonies ! A legislative measure must first be brought before the House of Commons, where it is debated fully before it is passed, then if is carried to the House of Lords, and undergoes the same fiery ordeal. If it passes the House of Lords, the King or Queen has still the right of re...
