THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY JUNE 24, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 June 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. " Vox populi, éôx Dei." ^SATUEDATTjT^24ri848r Iîr another column our readers will find a rather lengthy epistle, containing a de- fence of the Toll upon Sandal-wood now in obeyance. We claim our privilege of ma- king some few observations on our cor- respondent's Temarks upon the expediency of the Tax. Our correspondent says, he was one of those who objected '. to the Toll on princi- ple ¿as bearing 'the 'character of a duty upon a legitimate article of export." We take this to mean simply, that any article of export the produce of a country which is Buffering mainly from a want of exports," should berather encouraged than repressed by a tax upon its shipment. May we ask if circumstances are so much altered since the first imposition of this tax, as to ren- der it more eorrect in principle novo than it was then? The writer says he "was willing to Bubmit to it with the condition annexed, that it should be applied to Eoads and Bridges," there being no chance t...

Colonial Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 June 1848

Colonial Gleanings. 'GOVERNMENT ÖE ASCENSION.-" Ascen- sion does not come under the head of colo- nial possessions, and has no governor or officials belonging to the civil power. It is held by the Admiralty as a depot for stores for the African station, as being more easily reached than St. Helena, on' account of the S. E. trade. It is however treated as nothing more than a ship, and in fact is looked upon as if it were the Ascension store ship, moored in the South Atlantic. An old vessel, called the Tor- toise, is constantly lying there, and every person on the island is entered on her books, and supposed to belong to the crew. The commander of the ship is the governor of the island, unless it should happen that another vessel, commanded by an officer who is senior to him, should arrive, in which case the new-comer super- sedes him, as long as he remains there, but on his departure the captain of the Tortoise again assumes the reins of this important government." A manufactory of j...

Steam Communication. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 June 1848

Steam Communication. MB> DAVID SON, who is coming out in the India and Australasia Steam Naviga- tion Company's first vessel, as their agent at Sydney, has Resided many years in the Malay Archipelago, Australia, and else- where in the eastern hemisphere. Mr. Davidson considers the route from Singapore via'Batavia and Port Essington to Sydney, and vice versa, as perfectly practicable for powerful sea-going steam- ers, at all times of the year ; and the whole distance from Singapore to Sydney being barely 4000 miles, he is of opinion that a coal depot at Port Essington would be the only intermediate one absolutely required. In-addressinga letter on the subject -to the Editor of the Baily News, Mr. David- son thus gives the public the benefit of his experience : " I givo the steamers three weeks to* perform the voyage, including stoppages, from Singapore to Sydney ; consider two powerful vessels quite suffi- cient to keep up a regular monthly communication between the two places ; a...

To the Editor-of the "Independent Journal." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 June 1848

To tfie Editor-of'the ^Independent Journal" . Sir,-When passing over the Causeway the other day, I very nearly stuck in the mud, and a cart which I met with a team of horses was with difficulty dragged along. One part of it has certainly been well mac-adamised by the prisoners, but why have they been withdrawn from the streets of Perth, when the Causeway is under the charge of the Central Board of Works ? Are the Gentlemen composing that body asleep at their posts ? Then again this is not the fault of the Toll-keeper, because he informed me, that if he had been allowed to perform what he strongly recommended during the summer season, the Causeway , would never have been in such a state. I have farther to observe, iihat in the main street of Perth, leading up from the Toll-house to the town, a patent bridge was some time ago erected over a stream of water which flowed across the street. The planner of this standing folly said the water ought to be carried off by wooden pipes, so far ...

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 June 1848

Miscellanea. EGYPT.-A letter recently received in England from .Alexandria thus pourtrays the remarkable man who exercises sove- reign sway in the land of the Pharoahs: " Mehemet Ali in his old age is becoming quite sociable and civilised. * His highness seems to relish the society of Europeans, and to feel that their conversation is more entertaining than that of his courtiers and the bigotted Turks about him. On a .re- cent occasion he gave a grand dinner to the European consuls in Alexandria to meet the Bussian consul, who has only recently come to Egypt. The gentlemen were not invited alone, but those having families were asked to bring their wives and daughters with them. - A most sump- tuous repast of thirty covers was spread out in elegant European fashion in the palace at Bas-el-teen, and the table pre- sented a very animated appearance, having the Viceroy at the head, seated between two'European ladies, to whom he showed the greatest attention. There was a sprinkling of gre...

Sir,- Having always considered that the first object in a new country ought to be the formation of Roads, the construction of Bridges, and such other works as might facilitate communication between its seve- ral districts ; and having unfortunately ob- served that in this colony, during the time of each of the Governors who preceded Col. Irwin, this most important branch of the public service had been grievously ne- glected or mismanaged, I confess that I was one of those, who, although objecting in principle to the Toll on Sandal-wood as bearing the character of a duty upon a le- gitimate article of export, was willing to submit to it, with the condition annexed that its whole produce should be applied to Roads and Bridges, beca...

Effect of Marshes in producing Disease. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 1 July 1848

Effect of Marshes in producing Dis- ease. There can be no doubt that fever is always prevalent in the neighborhood of marshes. Warden, in his account of the United States of America remarks, " all low parts of the United .States along the banks of rivers and lakes, and near the borders of stagnant waters, and in marshy situations, where vegetable and animal substances, in a state of decay, are ex- posed to the action of an autumual sun, are subject to an intermittent or bilious fever. In every low situation where the rich vegetable soil is first exposed to the action of the sun, or where the water dis- appearing presents to its action a muddy surface, deleterious emanations are pro- duced, which, ascending to the surface of a neighboring hill, become the causes of disease there, as well as near the surface where they originated. The most extra- ordinary fact regarding marsh miasm is, that their influence is more' sensibly felt on the summit of the neighboring hills than on the very ...
