The Duties of our Women. [From the " United Irishwoman."] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
The Duties of our Women. [From the " United Irishwoman."] In the coming time the weapon nearest at hand is always the cheapest. Only dilettanti go about Ïicking and choOBing. Shillysuallers are cowards, (rave men are always armed. Brave men and brave women, a few suggestions to housekeepers we have already given ; we could supply thousands more. There is no better weapon, for instance, than one which is to be found in every house in the refined Quarter of the metropolis. A grand piano Bent own upon a troop of hussars will play Buch a so« nata over their heads as the scoundrels never marched off to. A chimney glass is a rare thing for smashing. I should not like to be the Saxon assassin upon whom some white-armed girl of Erin flung it. Pokers and tonga everybody knows the use of. A cut-steel fender is an awkward thing for a dra- goon to ride over. A guardsman won't look well with a copper coal-BCuttle for a helmet. Ladies' Unen will make the best of lint. A laced handkerchief tied ro...
The Rights of Labour. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
The Rights of Labour. .Labour ! What a debt of gratitude, of gratitude unpaid, and, I fear, too often un thought of, does the handwriting on the wall mark up against us at the very men- tion of the word! Labour! What has it not effected, what is it not constantly ef- fecting, for us! Labour ploughs and digs and tills and cultivates the ground, and sows and reaps and gathers into barns, and grinds the corn. Labour builds the ship and sails across the ocean, and pene- trates the most distant climes, and encoun- ters dangers and faces difficulties, and ran- sacks sea and land, to provide the food which we consume, and the clothes which we wear, and the jewelled ornaments which fashion calls for as an offering on its shrine, i Labour erects the house, cuts the railway and the canal, bores the tunnel, rears the viaduct and the bridge, levels the moun- tain, pierces the rock. It weaves and spins, toils and works, plies the loom, strikes the anvil, thunders at the forge, wields the hammer,...
Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
Miscellanea. A steamer has been built in London for the express purpose of carrying the despatches of the Times between the French and the English coasts. The original £500 ' shares in the New Biver (London) "VI ater Company, seventy-two in number, are now said to be worth £200,000 each. So much for monopoly. The Courrier de Lyons states that a ma- chine worked by the steam of ether, the invention of M. Tremblay, has been in successful operation for some time. Its power is equal to that of 20 horses. Malleable Glass.-Professor Schon bein (of the gun cotton) has to a certain point discovered malleable glass. He renders paper paste (papier mache) transparent, by causing it to un- dergo a certain metamorphosis, which he calls cata- lytic, for want of a more intelligible term. He makes of this new paper window panes, vases, bot- tles, &c., perfectly impermeable to water, which may be dropped on the ground without breaking, and are perfectly transparent. A dont-go-a-courting-the-...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
New Zealand. The Governor of New Zealand and Hone Heke have been hobnobbing together! Tbe "Field of the Cloth of Gold," and the Festive visit of the Queen of England to the Chateau d'Eu, will not henceforth stand solitary in the pages of English His- tory! Her Majesty's representative in the most remote part of her dominions has been féteing himself in an excursion along the coast, and just droped in to have a friendly chat with the leader of the re- bels! JNextyear we shall not be surpri- sed to hear that Queen Victoria has gone to Dublin, and sent in her card to Mr. Duffy of the Nation, prior, to going round to the west in search of the renowned Terry A& Although, however, Governor Grey's visit has & ludicrous as well as a serious aspect; we do not mean to confound them. The step was a very proper and a very politic one, and may be productive of bene- ficial and lasting results. A correspon- dent of the Sydney Herald furnishes us with some interesting details of th...
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. Voxpopuli, vox Dei'* SATURDAY^ DECEMBER^, 1848. Feom information we have received, it ap- pears we have been misled as to the gene- ral nature of the feeling with regard to making this colony a penal settlement, which the report of the Agricultural Meeting lately held at York, would lead our readers to suppose. A gentlemen who was present at that meeting, has as- sured us that the whole body of settlers do not advocate any such change, and in proof of this, informed us that when, at the close of that meeting, the subject was mooted and the Memorial produced for signature, fully one-third of the gentlemen present immediately rose and left the room, not wishing, even by their presence, to countenance such a measure. We are gra- tified to find that there are yet some set- tlers left in the colony, who have not ut- terly forgotten, in their anxiety to secure the benefits» of the convict assignment sys- tem, the enormous and horrible train of evils which would ne...
The Proposed Land Regulations. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
The Proposed Land Régulations. [ CONCLUDED. ] The following remarks, summing up and clearly detailing the specious fallacies contained in Earl Grey's despatch, need but few comments from us, to recommend them to the most serious attention of all settlers in this colony. That the prosperity of all the Australian proviuces in a great measure depends on the system to be followed in the per- manent, and also temporary, alienation of Crown lands, there cannot be a doubt ; that a perfect and appropriate measure should be decided upon, and that most speedily, must be the wish of all who seek for their steady advancement, but that this perfect system is contained in the arguments of Earl Grey, is much to be doubted. The system of froe grants, upon which this co- lony was established, is equally liable to objection with the present minimum price, the realisation of which is effectually rendered impossible by'the easy-te Aas on which a fourteen years' lease, and a renewal thereof, can be obta...
Shipping Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
Shipping Intelligence. Arrived.-On the 8th instant, the Typo, from the outports. At Geographe Bay, the American whaler Condor Allen, master, of New Bedford, out 5 months and 15 days, with 10 brls, black oil. The American,whaler, Isaac Howland, West, master, 5 months out, 40 brls. sperm oil. The George clears out this day for Singapore ; she takes 200 tons Sandal-wood and a few sheep. The Empress is loading with Sandal-wood for Singapore. Capt. Allen, of the American ship Condor, re- ports the loss of H.M. brig of war Ranger, at the Island of Corvo (Azore Islands). Captain Tudor, R.N., was a passenger in the Ranger, and bound to Surinam, on the coast of Africa, to take command of a Steam Frigate on that station. Capt. Tudor took passage in the Condor to St. Jago, with the intention of chartering a vessel of some description to convey himself and mails to the coast of Africa.
The Republic of Venezuela. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
The Republic of Venezuela. (Jn the opening of Congress, on the 24th of January, serious quarrels commenced between several members; high words drew a great crowd ; daggers were drawn, and, it is said, a member from the city (Hon. Hemeregildo Garcia) stabbed a member from Maracaibo (Hon. Antonio Salas.) The scene which ensued was terrific; those that could fled, and when the alarm reached the street the citizens fled in terror. A body of soldiers rushed in front of the hall, firing several volleys indiscriminately into the windows. Several members reached the door and were cut down like dogs. The wounded member, bleeding, was not recog- nised by the soldiers ; they fell on him, his left cheeck and ear were shot away, a se- vere cut over the head, his head nearly se- vered from his body, and his body terribly mangled with bayonets. The Hon. Julian Garcia, of Caracças, was shot through the head, the ball entering one ear and passing out at the other, all the fingers on the left hand cu...
Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
Local intelligence. . -.ota«- ' Another most successful blast took place on Wednesday last on the Bar at Freman- tle ; an immense mass of rock was dis- lodged, many of the fragments of conside- rable size being blown into the air to the height of forty feet above the summit of Rouse's Head; the Superintendent^of Pub- lic Works, who was standing on that point, to observe the blast, had a narrow escape, three large blocks weighing about one hundred weight each,-falling within a foot or two" on each side of him ; one of the laborers only succeeded in escaping by stooping, the piece passing close above his back. Another blast was to be tried this morning, which was expected would clear a passage for whaleboats" drawing about three feet water. The next range of blasts, which it is considered will occupy about one month, will render the passage wide enough to admit a ten-ton boat; the charges for those blasts will be increased to 151bs. or 181bs. of powder. It had been feared that the cle...
Colonization of the Indian Archipelago. From the "Times." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
Colonization of the Indian Archipe- lago. From thé " Times." Her Majesty's government have granted a charter to Mr.' Wise, who, as Mr. Brooke's agent, has had the management of his interests at home, for the purpose of extension of "commerce in the China seas, and for promoting the civilization of Borneo. ' ' A prospectus has been forward- ed to us of a company formed for that ob- ject. It mentions the various sources from which a demand for coal will spring up, and the increasing want which the spread of steam navigation in the east will occa- sion. The government has caused the quality of the coal to be tested by com- petent persons, and we are informed that the result has proved satisfactory in the highest degree. It is easy to obtain, none of the difficulties sometimes found in this country being obstacles to a cheap and re- gular supply. The climate of Borneo is admirably adapted for the growth of cotton tobacco, sugar, coffee, rice, nutmegs, pep- per, and indeed all and every ...

W. A. Mining Company. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 9 December 1848
W. A. Mining Company. The special meeting of the Mining Association held on Wednesday last, was a scene of perfect confusion on all sides ; recrimination followed re crimation, and we feel compelled to say, that alto gether it was one of the most disgraceful meetings we ever attended. If parties cannot keep their temper more under command than they did on Wednesday last, and discuss matters in a more gentlemanly and conciliating manner, they had much better stay away. D. Scott, Esq., being called to the chair, briefly stated to the meeting the object for which it was convened. Mr. L. Samson commented at some length on the resolution passed at the last meeting, to re commence the works, without the Company's being provided with any competent individual to superintend and direct the operations. He was informed that a gentleman was present who was the bearer of some proposal on the part of the Local Government for sending for Mr. Menge ; and for any other purpose he should oppose the m...
Pickings from "Punch." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 December 1848
Pickings from " Punch." Mr. Mitchell angling for martyrdom does not realise the Johnsonian picture of a fisherman. There is not a worm at one end, and the fool at the other. Neverthe- less, the angling is peculiarly Irish, inas- much as Mitchell, to catch gudgeons, baits with-a pike ! How to Invade England.-Corneas' an exile and not an arm will be raised against you. Great Fact.-When a good measure is introduced to the1 House of Commons the ministry are always sure to carry it out. A Philantrowst.-A gentleman who, we regret to state, was a bachelor, has left the munificent sum of £3,000 for the in- vention of a shirt without buttons. False Report.-We are authorised to state, that there is no foundation for the malicious rumour, that the postmen have, determined to demand a republic of let-., ters. Their allegiance to the Queen's Head proves them to be men of the most loyal stamp.
Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 16 December 1848
Miscellanea. The nearest guess we ever knew a man to make, was made by a man who was tumbled, bodily, out of a second story win- dow, and, when picking himself up, he said he * rather guessed he wasn't wanted there !' He must have been a Yankee. Lord Castlereagh, in his ' Journey to Damascus,' says that the Syrians are ac- tually told that the Sultan appoints the King .of England, and that he is the slave and servant of the Porte ! ' I'll take two children if I can have 'em cheap,' said a tall Yankee on entering an oyster cellar in Canal street the other day. ' Two children-what two children ?' ' Why, I hain't got any myself, and your sign reads "Familiessupplied" don't it ?' I want you to supply mo with one !' Noah's Messenger. A doctor once returned a coat to a tai- lor, because it did not exactly fit him. The tailor, afterwards seeing the doctor at the funeral of one of his patients, said to him ' Ah, doctor, you are a happy man.' ' Why so ?' inquired the doctor. 'Because,' said ...
