To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal.** Sir,-While baiting my horses and bait- ing myself at noon-day, I sat down to eat, read, and rest myself, for I always carry newspapers and books in my pocket. I spread open before me your Journal of April 29, and "lor how I did stare," as the song says, to see such fierce logic in a letter written by a "Shoe-smith," who comes out with his real name boldly, as men with wonderful intellects are always able to do. But poor I, who am nothing but a carter, and know nothing further than the driving of horses, gladly seek shelter under the name of my profession. Mr. K's letter reminds me of one of those very wet days last winter, when I stood by in his forge to listen while he taught four men all sorts of things. He taught them in rotatiou, according to age and size. The first he taught Theology, Geography, and History, entering most -minutely into many interesting notes con- cerning the siege and destruction of Jeru- salem, pointing out how ten...

Isthmus of Suez. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

Isthmus of Suez. From a letter of the 14th Dec, dated from the Isthmus of Suez, it appears that ten persons from France, under the direc- tion of M. Bourdalone, resident engineer of the Railway du Gard, had taken level lings for the cutting through the Isthmus at Cairo and in the environs, as well as the pyramids. On terminating these operations, the expedition encamped at Demerdache, opposite the camp of the pilgrims. The Viceroy placed half a com- pany of artillery, thirty tents, and 120 camels, at the disposal of the chief engi- neer. The central division having joined the first, both proceeded to Lake Timsah, and took levelhngs, &c, of the lake and the vicinity. Meanwhile, the second di- vision advanced from Cairo towards the central position, making the same' opera- tions for the cultivated portions of land which touch the desert, and in all the valley of the Ouadi. On the 9th ult., the divisions met at the Lake Timsah, and one portion of them took the road to Peluze, a...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

To the Editor of the " Independent Journal." Sir,-May I beg to request the favor of your insertion of the following : A member of the Church of England, I have constantly attended her service in St George's Church, and have often been surprised at the monotonous selection of Psalm Tunes which the congregation are unfortunately obliged to listen to. Who it is entrusted with the selection I am not aware, but it appears to me that it must be an individual blessed with an extraor taste for a droning accompaniment to the words, which has a great tendency to set all the congregation to sleep, for assuredly the tunes selected are calculated to excite no other feeling than extraordinary drow- siness. The congregation naturally ex- pected on tho arrival of the new instru- ment, to find the church music superior to what it had been before, but they are now rather inclined to fancy it far inferior, not with regard to its execution, but with re- spect to the taste displayed. It appears that sin...

To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

To the Editor of the'1 Independent JournaV\ Sir,-It seems that a man of the name of Samuel Ives, who came to this colony in the ship Miza, of London, in March, 1831, in the heat of a dispute about a sheep dog struck a lad of the name of George Woods, during the course of last month, somewhere in the York district. A blow on the head was inflicted by a stick, and the presiding magistrates R. G. Meares and Thomas Brown, Esqs., com- mitted Ives as a prisoner for trial at the next Quarter Sessions of the Peace, to be held at Perth. Mr. Clark applied to Mr. Mackie to have the man liberated from prison on bail, the offence was merely assault and battery, and consequently bail- able by the Law of England. The result is, that the committal of the York magis- trates has been set aside, and by the order of the Hon. the Advocate General, Ives has been liberated from Jail, to stand any prosecution at the instance of Woods, before the Petty Court at York, but tho colony suffers the expense of Iv...

The name and address of the writer must accompany each com- munication. . . ! To the Editor of the "Independent Journal." ¡Sir,-1 confess my ignorance of the art of wine-making, and if I have succeeded hitherto in manufacturing anything wor- thy the name of wine, it is to be attributed more to good luck than to any other cause. As to the quantity of pure spirit required to fortify wine for exportation, I am also ignorant, but, that a certain quantity is requisite, no one will deny. Distillation, as'suggested in my former letters, was for a practical purpose and individual benefit, and, therefore, it is nothing but right and reasonable, that the Government should not only be protected against imposition, but that it should ultimately be a gainer by granting such a benefit. It is a saying worthy observation, that "preventive is better than cure," an...

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox popuU, vox Dei.' SAfuBDAYTjUNEiri848. SINCE publishing our articles of May 6 and 14, on the proceedings of the District Committee for York, we have obtained some further information on the subject, and are, consequently, now able to confirm what we then stated, as to the enormous price paid for the labour engaged on the new lines ; but we also find that the blame does not rest upon the district committee in so great a measure as we were led to infer ; they would appear, rather, to have been over-anxious to open the new lines, at a time when scarcely a man was to be obtained, except at a most exorbitant rate, and, therefore, their proper course should have been, to have postponed the execu- tion of the works until the arrival of more labor, or, until a time when the labouring population were less fully employed ; but, otherwise, we^nd they did what they could, under the circumstances, consequently the remarks made by us were unfounded, ba- sed as they w...

Abd-el Kader [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 3 June 1848

Abd-el Kader The "Moniteur Algérien," of the 29th ult., publishes a long account of the sur- render of Abd-el-Kader, from which wé extract jtfae , follqwing :-" At six in the evening, the " Emir " arrived with Gene- rals Lamoriciere and Cavaignac, and Lieu tenant-Colonel de Beaufort, and was in- troduced to the Duke d'Aumale. Con- forming himself to his present circum- stances, he humbly put off his sandals at the threshold, and stood till the Prince made a sign to him toJbe seated. After a moment's silence, he delivered the follow- ing words, which were interpreted by M. Rousseau, the pricipal interpreter:-'I would have done sooner what I have now done, but I have awaited for the hour appointed by God. The General has given me a promise, upon which I have relied. I have no fear of its being violated by the son of so great a king as the King of the French. I ask his aman for my family, and for myself.' His Royal High- ness, in a few simple words, confirmed the promise of his Lieuten...

The " Minerva," from Singapore. This vessel left Singapore on the 20th ApriL but does not, bring any later Euro- pean intelligence; we have received the Straits' Times of the 18th April, which ia filled with the Erench Revolution. The only items of European affairs which our readers are not already acquainted with, we have extracted. The news relating to Sandalwood, is, if possible* more gloomy than the last. It is recommended not to ship any more for the present, as it is found impossible to make sales of what had already arrived.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 10 June 1848

Local Intelligence. Dr. von Sommer has returned to Perth from making a geogical examination in the neighborhood of Cape Leewin and Geo- graphe Bay, in districts of the Vasse and Augusta. We believe the doctor has dis- covered nil, and reports that the geogical formation of the country precludes the possibility of coal being found in the neighborhood, and as for copper he could find no traces of that, but a great deal of iron pyrites, which being of a similar co- lor, probably led to the rumours of there being copper in the district. We are sorry to report the loss of the schooner Thetis on the I6th ult. she was driven on shore about thirty miles to the northward of Augusta. The crew were saved» We understand that in consequence of the market being stocked with Indian pro- duce by the Commander of the Colonial Schooner Champion, and who imported it in that vessel, the agent of the Minerva, found himself unlikely to effect sales, of her cargo, and therefore but little of it has been l...
