Gleanings. SINGULAR PETITION TO THE QUEEN. On Tuesday Lord Robert Grosvenor and Mr. Spooner attended at the Home Office, with. Sir George Grey, to present a memorial to the Queen from the women of England, signed by 100,000, praying that the bill for preventing trading in seduction may pass into a law. The fol- lowing is a copy of the petition:-"To the Queenie most excellent Majesty-Ve the undersigned women of Great Britain and Ireland, placed by Divine Providence under the- sway of the British' sceptre, which God has committed to your Majes- ty's hands, most humbly beg leave to make known to our beloved. Sovereign the heavy and cruel grievance that oppresses a large portion of the female population of the realm. A system exists, by which not only are undue facilities and tempta- tions held out to the immoral, the- giudy, and the poor to enter into a life of infamy, degradation, and ruin, but unwary young females and mere children are frequently entrapped, and sold into the hands of...

Poetry EDITOEIAL MISERIES. An editor sat on a lofty stool, A very long pen was stuck in his ear. Beforo him productions from roguo and fool, In hieroglyphics not over clear, He openea one, and he opened all, More like a machine than a man, (How imperturbable editors are) And thus the madley ran.

THE CONSPIRACY AT ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 February 1848

THE CONSPIRACY AT ROME'. A correspondent of the Times thus re- fers to the conspiracy which has been de- feated at Rome : - " It was intended to commemorate the anniversary of the amnesty granted by the Pope with the greatest magnificence. As the time drew near for the festival, symp- toms of the greatest uneasiness were ob- served among the people. At the same time the executive authorities seemed pa- ralyzed. The popular ferment had reached its height ; the mysterious terror whiöh pervaded the city showed itself in a thou- sand ways, when a channel and direction were given to the feeling3 of the citizens by the sudden appearance on the walls ol' many frequented thoroughfares of hand- bills, some written and some roughly printed, containing a list of names, wita a simple statement, that the persons men- tioned were the chiefs of a conspiracy against the people. Strange as it may seem, anonymus (and to this moment mys- terious) announcement seemed to give a clue to the most terrible...

i&s&ibitkrtj. of Fruit. THE VINEYAUD SOCIETY'S Exhibition of Fruit on Thursday hiafc, held at Leeder's Hotel, we were sorry to observe, was much deficient both in the number of visitors 1 and the quantity, variety, and quality of the fruit exhibited, as compared with those of former years ; there was still, however, much to gratify those wrho take an interest in the advance of the horticultural skill of the colonists. The Grapes and Apples were decidedly superior to any we had before seen. Of the former, the bunches were large and handsome, particularly of the Muscatel and Black Hamburgh varieties. Of those sorts used for the manufacture of wine, there was a great paucity, which wras to be regretted, the object of the Society being we conceive, more to promote the cultivation of those sorts, than to the production of table fruit. Of peaches and melons there were but few ; for the former the day of exhibition was rather late, and consequently there were but two or thr...

WOMAN'S WIT, OK LOVE'S DISGUISES. They sat within a bower of roses twined, A palo dark youth besido a bright eyed girl, Behind their parted lips shone wealth of pearl As ever and anon sho smiling turned To that darle youth, and he with fevered mind Gazed on that bright eyed girl, and mutely drank The beauty that on her fair features burned, 'Till all her witchery to his heart's depths sank. He seized hor hand, and, borne upon the tide Of swelling passion, straight before her knelt, He felt-he felt-ho knew not how he felt, But feel he did, and said so ; she replied, " AU very fine this, master Tom, no doubt, But does your mother really know you're out ?"

APPOINTEMENTS AND REVENUE OF PRINCE ALBERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 February 1848

APP0I2JTMENTS AND EEVENUE OP PRINCE ALBERT. When Priuce Albert came to this corni-1 try (says a correspondent of the Weekly Times) Lord Melbourne's cabinet asked Parliament to grant him an annual allow- ance of £50,000. This enormous amount (double probably the whole revenues of the petty principality of Saxe, Cohurg) was proposed no doubt with the view of curry- ing favour with the Queen. Parliament very properly refused to grant an allow- ance of £50,000 a year to Prince Albert. It did grant bim £30,000 and a -very extra- vagant allowance that was,-extravagant it surely must be, for the Prince does not spend one 3ixth of it. Parliament having thus unequivocally declared that £30,000 a year was amply sufficient for the personal exepnses of Prince Albert (for he has " bed and board" at the Palace, for nothing), no further allowance should have been made. To give him more, would be, and was, an evasion and disobedience of the public will, as expressed through the Par- liament of the ...

Facts, Fiction, and Faceti[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 12 February 1848

Facts, Fiction, and Facetio. When thou art married, seek to please thy wife ; but listen not to all she says. From man's right side a rib was taken to form the woman, and never was there seen a rib quite straight. It breaks but bends not. Since tlien, it is plain that crooked is woman's temper forgive her faults, and blame her not, nor let her anger thee, nor correction use, as it is in vain to attempt to straighten what is naturally crooked. The greatest step a minister ever took waa that of a league, when Sir Bobert Peel walked into the corn-laws. A widow said once to her daughter., " When you are of my age, you will be dreaming of a husband," " Yes mamma," replied the thoughtless girl," for a second time." The constitution of our females must be excellent, says a celebrated physician. Take an honest ox, encase his sides with corsets, and require labour of him-he would labour indeed, but it would be for breath. I recon I love yer, said a Yankee ac- countant to his sweetheart.
