The "Titania," from Sydney and South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

The "Titania," from Sydney and South Australia. By this vessel we have received intelli- gence from Sydney to April 4 ; Hobart Town April 8 ; Port Philip April 15; and South Australia April 29. The Goulbourn correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald says the precari ousness of stockholding has influenced many settlers to search for new sources of wealth, and flockmasters are leaving their pursuits on the surface to dive deeper into the soil to search after lodes of mineral, instead of loads of wool. The Act of Council constituting the Hon. Francis Scott, M.P., Agent for New South Wales, for a period of three years, had been disallowed by the British Go- vernment. The long supposed rich house of Blax- land had failed, and will, it is thought, not pay a farthing in the pound; A letter had been received in Sydney from Dr. Leichardt dated Canning Downs, 26th February. The intrepid traveller, after three months spent in preparatory journeys and outfit, was ready for a final start. His p...

China. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

China« We have received Hongkong journals up to the 29th March. Samuel George Bon- ham, Esq., the new Governor of this co- lony arrived on the 20th, by the steamer Pekin, and having taken the oaths on the 21st, assumed the duties of Government. The high character which Mr. Bonham attained while Governor of the Straits, was well known in China, and his arrival was warmly greeted by a large number of in- habitants, who had assembled to see him land. Sir J. F. Davis, left for England by the same vessel which brought his succes- sor out. We learn that four Chinamen, who are described as principal criminals, although how they were ascertained to be so does not appear, were executed near the place where the murders of our unfortunate countrymen were supposed to have taken place, and that others were to be punished in various degrees. Sir John Davis in- forms British subjects, that security for the future will be exacted ; but does not state in what manner it is to be obtained. The promptn...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

South Australia. The news from the neighboring colony contains but little of interest to the gene- ral reader. The fears for the stoppage of Emigration by the Land Commissioners, proved to be without foundation, vessels having arrived with emigrants, and others were to follow. The new Governor had not arrived but was shortly expected. Messrs. M'Donald and Hassell's half share of the Emma Sherratt, had beeji sold by auction for the sum of £360. Mr Kemp had sold the schooner Gazelle for £150. The barque Hindoo, 310 tons, waa enga- ged to come to this colony for a cargo of wool, and advertised to sail on the 10th of May, she may therefore be daily expected.

The National Defences. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

The National Defences. The following is copy of a letter addres- sed by the Duke of Wellington to Sir J. Burgoyne : TO MAJOB-GKENEBAL SIE JOHN J. BUB GOTNE K.O.B., ETC., ETC. Strathfieldsaye, 9th Jan 1847. MT DEAB GENEBAL-Some days have elapsed-indeed a fortnight has-since I received your note, with a copy of your observations on the possible results of a war with France, under our present sys- tem of military preparation. You are aware that I have for years been sensible of the alteration produced in maritime warfare and operations by the application of steam to the propelling of ships at sea. This discovery immediately exposed all parts of the coasts of these Islands, which a vessel could approach at all, to be ap- proached at all times of tide, and in all seasons, by vessels so propelled, from all quarters. "We are in fact assailable and at least liable to insult, and to have con- tributions levied upon us on all parts of our coast ; that is, the coast of those, in- cluding the C...

Geographical Alliteration. THE Brewers should to Malt-a go ; The fools to rocks of SciUy ; The Quakers to the Friend-Xj Isles ; The JFW-riers, all to Chili. The little squalling, bawling babes, That nightly break our rest, Should be packed off to Baby-Ion, To 2/op-land, or to Brest.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei" SATURDAY, MAY 27, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Voxpopuli, vox Dei" ' ' SATUR^YrMAF277l848. THE Local Government not having re- ceived the expected despatches, respecting the decision of the Home Government on the Sandal-wood Toll, have been obliged to come to a decision as to its continu- ance. On Thursday last, it was promul- gated that it would be taken off, or, rather suspended, for the period of six months, which, although a great relief to the trade, yet we cannot but cousider as a half-and half measure-another notable instance of the drivelling nature of the Govern- ment of this colony. They suspend it for six months-during a period of the year when they are well aware but little business in the article will be done, and before the busy season of the summer months arrives, it will again be in full operation. We trust this concession will not close the eyes of those interested in the trade, to the necessity there still exists for their exerting themselves on the ar- rival of the new Governor, to o...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

New Zealand. It was considered that the maintenance of British supremacy was still owing to the absence of any general combination of hostile feelings amongst the different tribes of natives throughout the island, and not to the increased military and na- val power which has been sent froni Eng- land to its support. The Nancy from the Bay of Islands had brought intelligence that the natives had entered into a league with each other, and have drawn up a writ- ten compact, the terms of which they keep extraordinarily secret. Heki was the mainspring of the movement. He had been receiving deputations from various parts of the country, even as far as from Poverty Bay. The Government had purchased a block of 150 acres of land from the natives, situ- ated near Hobson's Bay, for £40 or £50. Mr. Domett had been appointed Colo- nial Secretary, and Mr. Fox Attorney Ge- neral for the southern division of the colo- ny, by His Excellency the Governor-in Chief; and the Hon. C. A. Dillion had recei...

Late European Intelligence. REVOLUTIONIN FRANCE! [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

Late European Intelligence* REVOLUTIONIN FRANCE! The European intelligence brought by the Champion, is up to the late date of Peb, 29th. It is of a most startling cha- racter, giving us accounts of a revolution in Prance, which, although the tenor of the advices we had before received, might have prepared us to expect.at the death of Louis Phillippe, some great alteration in the constitution of the state, yet it could scarcely have been considered probable until that event had taken place. It ap- pears the circumstance which precipitated the occurrence of the revolution was an attempt on the part of the Government to stop a Reform procession and banquet which was to have taken place on the 22nd of February and the occupation by the military of various points of strength. Collisions soon after took place between the military and the populace, barricades were thrown up, and it quickly became apparent the movement was not solely confined to the lowest classes. On the 23rd the fighting ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

Local Intelligence« During the firing of the salute at Fre- mantle, on "Wednesday last, Her Majesty's birthday, as a soldier belonging to the 96th liegiment, was ramming down the car- tridge of the eighteenth gun, the gun went off, and the man was blown some distance down the hill ; when the poor fellow was picked up, it was found that his arm was splintered, and an eye so much injured that it is doubtful if he will recover the sight of it. He was promptly attended to by Mr. Dinely. We regret to report that up to the pe- riod of our going to press, no satisfactory intelligence has been received respecting Lieut. Magill ; a portion of the men who have been out on the search, returned this afternoon, the last trace discovered, was a track on which he had turned as if lea- ving the hills, but this was quickly lost. We are afraid all hopes must now be given up, of the unfortunate gentleman's ever being found alive. It is reported, and we believe report in this instance is tolerably corr...

Mauritius. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 27 May 1848

Mauritius. We have intelligence from this colony up to the 17th March. The island had been visited with a most destructive hurricane between the evening of the 6th of March and the 8th ; several vessels were driven on shore and considerable damage done in different parts of the island. The sugar crop promised well. The amount due by Mauritius to three of the great London firms involved in the late disastrous com- mercial period, is no less than £1,500,000 ; and as the total valuation of the sugar estates which were the security for the ad- vances, does not exceed £2,400,000, there seems little chance of realising anything like the large amount due.

Aborigines of N. S. Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

Aborigines of N. S. Wales. On Monday last two aboriginal blacks committed a rape on a young girl, a ser- vant of the A. A. Company, and about twenty miles from this, near the Glouces- ter, they were,apprehended, on the same .-,- ». Í. .»«. evening, by an overseer of the "Company, but they managed to effeot their escape again the same night. Next morning the same two villians made to another sheep station, where they caught hold of another girl. After violently, assaulting her they threw her into a deep hole of the river, called a duck hole. The young woman was fortunately a good swimmer and managed to make her way under water to some long grass near the bank, where she just lifted her head above water, but kept herself concealed. The blacks then, satis- fied that she was done for, agreed to mur- der the rest of the family, which consisted of a woman and three children. Happily a little girl who witnessed the transaction apprised them of what was going on, and the helpless family esc...
