India. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

India. From the the following, extracted from the Friend of India December 30th, it will be seen that Sir Robert Oliver has been re-called by the Court of Directors. Sir Robert for some years has been Super- intendent of the Indian Navy and, aided by his minions, has done more to disgust the officers in that service than any editor dare publish-Sir Robert is execrated, and we think deservedly : ' The Bombay Gentleman's Gazette an- nounces that the Court of Directors has resolved to supersede Sir Robert Oliver, in the command of the Indian Navy at Bombay; There can be no doubt what- ever that the universal voice of the press at that Presidency, which echoes the sen- timents of a very large portion of the com- munity, will sooner or later have its weight on the public authorities both in India and England. But Government is obliged to support an officer, until it has been deemed expedient to remove him; and therefore the official maintenance of his authority cannot be considered a gua...

Of a Ghost that appeared to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

Of a Ghost that appeared to the Editor. The toils of the day had pasBed away, Our proofs had gone to press. All weary on our couch we lay, In -virgin loneliness ; We had heard the chimes of vanish* d times Bine on our fancy's ear And the lonely knell of the passing bell Which toU'd tor the dying year. We thought of the breath-now quench'd in death That welcom'd the last year in ; Of the garland chang" d to the cypress wreath, And of souls that had perish'd in sin; We thought on the joy we had felt as a boy,' In lollipops, feathers, and frills ; And we thought with a quake and a dubious shake Of our usual quarterly bills ! Oh ! terrible sight ; a ghastly sprite With a face that Bpoke of the tomb ! Array" d from the top to the bottom in white Appear'd in the chamber's gloom. With awful amaze we mark'd its gaze, For remorse to its features clung And woful and sore the expression they wore, Like a thief coming out to De hung. We Bhiver'd all o'er, and from every pore Trickl'd the dews o...

Progress of the Nation. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

Progress of the Nation. The social progress of individuals, fami- lies, and neighborhoods, is familiar to us all, and usually forms one of the most common subjects of our enquiries; but when such details as come within the scope of our own personal observation are mul- tiplied, extended and classified by mathe- matical minds, so as to embrace the great aggregate of the nation, the result must be a picture of the highest imaginable in- terest and importance. The elements of prosperity, commercial and educational, are dany taking new and more active com- binations ; and it is no longer heresy to consider the welfare of the many as better worth attention than inert and antiquated theories' It is only from the commencement of the present century that anything like cor- rect population returns have been obtained. The increase in the first half of last cen- tury was-omitting fractions-not more than 17 per cent ; in the second half it rose to 52 per cent. The number added to the population...

[Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

The Editor of this Journal invites the free expres- 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 JEditor of the "Independent Journal." , Sir,-There appeared in the "Independ- ent Journal" oí the 29th April last, a let tier from a 'Joseph Kenworthy,',cautioning Smiths againgst placing confidence in an Advertisement in the Public journals for those mechanics. By that letter, Kenwor thy, solely for the purpose of preventing his fellow tradesmen being imposed on, (not fearing any loss of custom owing to his character hithertoo for dispatch and punctuality) would make it appear, that there exists no other employment for Smiths at York, but horse-shoeing. It is a well-known fact, that Kenworthy's inva- riable excuse for the detention of work, a month, nay, two and upwards, after the J time appointed for its completion, is the ' great quantity of work with which he is tro...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journa." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

To the "Editor, of the " Independent Journa." Sir,-Some time ago I called the atten- tion of the Public, to the case of a settler of the name of James Miller, who was re- fused admittance into the Colonial Hos- pital, although afflicted with a dangerous íllness. The local authorities stated, in vindication of their selfish unmanly and unchristian conduct, that if Miller could obtain the certificate of a magistrate, that he was in destitute circumstances, he might obtain admission into the Hospital. A direct pledge was cautiously avoided. Well, Sir ! two magistrates applied to the acting Governor on his behalf--Mr Brock- man and Mr. Yule, and these gentlemen were assured that something would be done for Miller. Accordingly something was promised but never performed. He was promised daily rations until he* was able to work: Now, I put it to any rea- sonable being. In what consists the dif- ference of serving out rations to a patient, and being at once admitted into the Hos- pital ? Th...

Late European Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

Late European Intelligence. Our contemporary gives some late Eu- ropean intelligence in his last number, among which is a disjointed account of an alarm in England respecting an invasion by the French, and which would appear to be partialy confirmed by the increased diligence manifested in completing the defences of the nation ; not only are the coast defences of England and the colonies to be immediately placed in a complete state of armament, but the Royal Artillery is to increased by an addition of twenty new companies, and it appears probable that the Militia will be called out for training. The winter in England so far had been unusually mild, or, rather, there had been no winter at all, and the natural conse- quence, was the prevalence of sickness and great mortality. A heavy obituary is given, among whom the individual best known is Mr. Isaac D'Israeli, the celebra- ted author of the " Curiosities of Litera- ture." The Earl of Powis had been ac- cidentally shot by his son on ...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" SATU^ATTMAYS07I848. Otra contemporary, in his last number, gives as a reason why the Government delay their decision relative to the Sandal- wood Toll, until the arrival of the Cham- pion, their expectation of receiving by that vessel despatches from the Home Govern- ment either confirming or disallowing the tax. This may be partly their reason, but we believe they are also actuated by a feeling of greater confidence in the reports of their own officer, than in those of the merchants either here or in Singapore. But, allowing the former to be their rea- son, we cannot see that it authorises the public to put any more confidence in their desire to forward the interests of the colo- ny, than if they are moved solely by a dis- belief in the roports which have been set before them. Supposing the Home Go- vernment disallow the Toll, there will then be an end oi the matter ; but, if it should happen to be confirmed, we cannot divest ourselves...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

To the Editor of the "Independent Jotvrnal." Sir,-The "Englishman," in a late let- ter in your Journal, has opened my eyes and thrown around the devoted Executive a living, flaring' halo of damnatory influ- ence, which at once destroys all christian feeling and sound principle, and registers their memorial in earth and in heaven. I would fain hope that he has made a mis- take. Has it come to this at last, that, not content with treading under foot the political rights of the people, they have also proceeded to insult their Royal mis- tress and gracious Queen ? who is admi- red, respected, and beloved both at home and abroad, for her christian benevolence. Is it possible-can it be true, that this Executive, with christian John Hutt, Esq., at their head, did compel the Wesleyans to pay £60 for 60 acres of land, for the benefit of the Aborigines, the lawful pro proprietors of the soil? poor fellows, I pity your case ! and well may the good christian people of old England, weep the brin...

Removal of Judge Montagu. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

Removal of Judge Montagu. Sir W. Benison, the Governor of Van Diemen's Land, in his late address to the Legislative Council of that colony, gave the following as his reasons for the remo- val of Judge Montagu ; " There is one more subject, and that a painful one, to which I yet feel compel- led to allude,'and that is the removal of Mr. Justice Montague, from the Bench. It is due both to that gentleman and the public that the grounds of hi3 removal should be clearly stated, the circumstances under which such removal took place are briefly as follows-A complaint was made to me that Mr. Montague had taken ad- vantage of his position as one of the judges of the Supreme Court to evade the pay- ment of his just debts. The case was carefully investigated before the Executive Council, and all the facts were fully proved, as alleged, The statement made by Mr. Montagu in explanation was of such a na- ture as not only to satisfy the Council of the truth of the charge, but also to give addition...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 20 May 1848

Local Intelligence. Lieut. Magill left Perth on Thursday morning (the 10th inst.), with leave of absence to the end of the month, intending to visit Mr. S. Moore and other friends in the country. Not having been heard of at the residence of that gentleman, or in Guildford, or York, up to Wednesday last, great fears are entertained for his safety. He was alone, on foot, and had a double barreled gun with him, and powder and shot — but it is believed no compass. Early on Wednesday morning, Major Bush, Dr. De Lisle, Mr. Hester, and a party of Natives proceeded in search of him, and succeeded in getting on his tracks in the afternoon of that day, about three miles from Perth, and pointing in a North Easterly direction towards the Dar- ling Range. The track was followed for about nine miles, and then lost at the foot of the range. It is supposed that Mr. Magill mistook the Canning for the Guildford road, as he was tracked down the former for about two miles, and in his endeavors to gain ...
