Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 25 November 1848

Local Intelligence. We regret to hear that the colony is about to lose, for a time, the valuable ser- vices of our much respected Colonial Secre- tary, Dr. Madden, the state of whose health has obliged him to apply for leave of ab- sence for a twelvemonth, during which he ?will revisit England, where we hope his services will still be exerted for the benefit of the colony* as he will, from personal knowledge, be enabled faithfully to repre- sent to the Home Government what is necessary for our advancement. We are certain the colony has no.better friend than Dr. Madden, and that he will exert himself to the utmost on our behalf ; his official situation, and previous reputation^ Jwill give his representations the necessary weight with the Home Government, and we sanguinely look forward to receiving much benefit from his exertions. How- ever, we must regret his loss to us at a period fraught with so much colonial diffi- culty, and also the circumstance which compels his departure;" but...

Loss of the "Benares" Steamer. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

Loss of the "Benares" Steamer., The Indian steam-ship Benares .waa completely destroyed by fire, on the 20th. April last, and the conflagration was attended with lamenta- ble loss of life. She had on board, at the time of her leaving Calcutta, 150 passengers, and the catas- trophe, which happened about four miles below Rajmahal, is thus described by Lieutenant H. O. Mayne, who was among the fortunate passengers who esoaped from a horrible death:-"It was about half-past seven o'clock in the evening when the alarm was given, the fire having kindled in the hold of the after-part of the vessel,' but the cause is a mystery, the whole of that portion of the ves- sel in one minute became a raging blaze, and BO instantaneously did it spread that those who were right aft could not by any circumstance get for- ward. Captain Townsend, the master, at once ap- prehended danger, and called to the man at the helm to run the vessel into shallow water, which luckily was nigh, and in the course of a ...

United States and Mexico. The conflict tbiit has so long been car- ried on between the United States and Mexico is virtually at an end. A treaty has been signed, of -which the following are the most important points : The future boundary line of the United .States commences in the Gulf of Mexico, three leagues from land ; thence runs up the middle of the Bio Grande to its inter- section with the southern boundary of New Mexico ; thence along that southern boun- dary to the western boundary of same ; thence north to the first branch of the G-ila, which it intersects ; thence down the mid- dle of that branch and of the river to the Colorado ; thence it runs across westward, and strikes the Pacific at a point one league south of San Diego.

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei" SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. 1 Voaspopuli, vox Dei" . S ATUR£¡X1D^CEAÍ^3» 1848. ' At5the last meeting of the Mining' Asso- ciation, the question was asked' whether, if shareholders refused to pay calls'when (made7 they could afterwards claim to be "considered shareholders in the Company"? This question may appear to be somewhat1 frivolous and unnecessary, but it is in truth a very doubtful point, whether the forfeiture of shares on which calls remain unpaid can be legally enfareeä, there"being as yet no deed of settlement executed. It "is -true that each shareholder has signed a certain agreement, "but whcther'tkàt agreement is 'bmding remains to be proved, and is doubt- ed by members of the legal profession. A meeting being now convened for the consideration1 of the propriety of making a fresh call, it behoves shareholders to be , cautious how they proceed further without a deed of settlement being executed. " The Company have already gone to the expense .of preparing such a-deed?cand ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

Local Intelligence. THE BAR AT FREMANTLE.-One of the most ef- fective blasts that has yet been made on the Bar, took place yesterday morning ; an immense mass of rock situated in the midst of the intended chan- nel was shivered to pieces, and no doubt can now be entertained as to the success of the undertaking, at least so far as to .allow the free entrance of lar- ger boats and coasting craft. Operations for-re- moving the fragments have also been commenced, and the first piece, weighing about one ton, was landed yesterday in the presence of the Colonial Secretary, Dr. Madden, who also witnessed the blast. We should imagine that, as one of the de- fects of [the river, according to Capt. Twiss,'is its hating too wide a mouth for the volume of water it usually pours forth, it would be advisable and practicable to fill up a portion of the bar with the materiel excavated from the new channel ; in this manner a pier could easily be erected, which would form a well defined mark as to the...

Public Meeting at York. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

Public Meeting at York. A large and respectable meeting of the stock- holders and agriculturists was held at York ori the 18th ultimo, for the purpose of consulting as to the present state and prospects of the wool trade ; the low rates obtained at the last English sales ; and the prices now offered by the colonial exporters.. Mr. W. Burges being called to the chair, ad- dressed the meeting on the subject they were as- sembled to consider, and was followed by several gentlemen, who concurred in* opinion as to the groat expense and disadvantage under which wool is produced here, the high freight paidfor its ship- ment to England, and also the numerous small charges to which it is subjected ; that unless some reduction in the different expenses was made, the ruin of the stockholders must ensue. , The following resolutions were put to the meet- ing, and carried unanimously :- ,' , Proposed by Mr. C.

The Proposed Land Regulations. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

The Proposed Land Regulations. In three late numbers of our 'Journal, we gave insertion, by authority of the Local Government, to a parliamentary paper containing the last Land Sales Act, and also the proposed Régulations for the Occupation of Waste Lands in New South Wales,, which we believe has since been confirmed' so far as relates to that colony.. This document has bee» transmitted to this Go- vernment foe the purposo of ascertaining it s opinion as to the applicability of the latter portion to this colony. No opinion is requested as to the mini- mum price of land, the autocrat of the colonies being apparently determined on maintaining this monstrous dogma, that the wild acres of Australia shall not be sold for less than twenty shillings each. As we believe these proposed, or rather of- fered, Regulations, will not only be brought before the Legislative Council for consideration, but mea- sures will also be taken for obtaining the opinions of practical men on the subject, and i...

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

Miscellanea. The Banker's Magazine publishes a list of 270 failures from August to December last. Of these, seventy-eight were at 'London, forty-nine at Liverpool, thirty-three at Manchester, twenty-five at Glasgow, and the remainder chiefly foreign firms connected with the colonial markets. We have good reason for deeming every notice of St. Paul's Island a matter of interest to these colonies, although its advantageous position is not yet sufficiently appreciated. The John Gray, passenger ship, which arrived at Melbourne on the 4th August called at the Island on the 14th July (only three weeks previous to arrival at Port Philip be it observed) and found a splendid har- bour there, (formed by two parallel breakwaters), with deep water to the land. French colours were hoisted when the John Gray put in, and shortly afterwards the captain and two of tho passengers went on shore, where they found the Governor and nine Europeans, (Frenchmen) and about nine blacks, who formed the populat...

Cannibalism in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 2 December 1848

Cannibalism in Australia. INTERESTING SAVAGES. — A SOP FOR EXETER HALL.— The fact that some tribes of her Most Gracious Majesty's sable sub- jects in this part of the globe eat their own offspring, is, we, believe only doubted across the line. The following communication from a settler (on the Adelaide side), signed "Kenneth Campbell," to the SOUTH AUSTRALIAN of the 4th September, places all scepticism (if any exist in the colonies) of their horrible cannibalism beyond a question :— " A most revolting instance of cannibalism, which I have just witnessed, has induced me to communicate the par- ticulars to you, in order to convince those ultra-philantropists of their error, who either deny the fact, or argue the impossi- bility of the "harmless and innocent abo-   rigines" being guilty of such atrocities.   Having been absent from home on the 2nd instant, I was informed, on my return by the shepherd, that a native woman had given birth to an infant ; and that...
