Address to the Hon. the Colonial Secretary. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 January 1849

Address to the Hon. the Colonial Secretary. ,The following address to the Hon. E. B, Madden, Esq., signed principally by the inhabitants of Perth, was presented to him on Saturday, immediately previous to his departure. We doubt not it would have been much more so, if it had been more generally known that such a document was in preparation. Why it was not taken in hand sooner we are not aware, but like the generality of their conduct, the Western Australians were near upon allowing a public officer, who had deserved well at their hands, to depart from their shores without a public acknowledgement of the very efficient and beneficial manner in which he had served them : To the Hon. B. B. Madden, Esq., Colonial Secretary of the Colony of Western Aus- tralia. Sib,-We, the undersigned, inhabitants of Western Australia, beg to tender you our warmest thanks for the zeal and ability you have ever displayed in furthering the real interests of our colony, and for the li- beral and enlightene...

Culture of the Yam. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 January 1849

Culture of the Vam. The following article, extracted from a letter inserted m the Bampshire Indepen- dent, merits serious notice; but to do the subject justice, we must view it theoreti- cally as well as experimentally. Our best authority at hand thus writes-Dioscarea sativa is one of many species which give name to a natural order of their own CDioscoreaOiib belongs to the Linnean class 22, ord. ti, Bixcia Hexandria. Leaves alternate, heart-shaped, roundish pointed, about 9 nerved. Stem smooth but biferous.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 January 1849

Local Intelligence. The Government Gazette of the present week contains the announcement of the appointment of B. H. Bland, Esq. as Act- ing Colonial Secretary; that gentleman will also continue to perform the duties of Private Secretary to His Excellency. Mr. Yule has accepted the office of Clerk of the Councils. For the office of Colonial Secretary in the present crisis of affairs, no individual in the colony could have been selected, whose appointment would have been more grateful to the general body of settlers; he will have a difficult task to perform, but his past services encourages the belief that those of his new office, will not prove either less honorable to himself or beneficial to the colony. Ebbatum.-In the address to Mr. Mad- den, contained in our last number, we in- advertently named Mr. Fork as a Boman Catholic, it ought to have been "Wes leyan."

Mr. John Mitchell. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 January 1849

Mr. John Mitchell. xne îollowmg is an extract from the " of- fensive article," on which the indictment against Mr. Mitchell was founded; it "is addressed to the " Protestant farmers, la- borers, &c": " I tell you, frankly, that I for one am not 'loyal,' I am not wedded to the Queen of England, nor unalterably attached to the House of Brunswick. In fact, I love my own barn better than I love that House. The thing has long since grown a mon- strous imposture, and has been already in some civilised countries detected as such, and drummed out accordingly. A modern King, my friends, is no more like an anci- ent anointed Shepherd of the People than an Archbishop's apron ia like the Urim and Thummim. There is no divine right now but in the sovereign people. And, for the 'institutions of the country,' I loathe and despise them ; we are sickening and dying of these institutions fast ; they are consuming us like a plague, degrading us to paupers in mind, body, and estate-yes, making o...

Sheep-skins, Tallow, and Glue. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 13 January 1849

Sheep-skins, Tallow, and Glue. The Goulburn Herald gives the follow- ing extract from a letter received from Messrs Donaldson & Co , Wool-brokers, of London, which will, no doubt, be found in- teresting : "It must be a matter of calculation for you what is best to be done with the skins,-with sheep producing 2|lbs. of wool (washed), and netting Is 3d per lb, the pelts would be worth 10s to 12s per dozen. Provided you sent the skin with the wool on, perhaps we might obtain 20s to 30s per dozen. We can only come to the conclusion, that it would be better to wash and shear the sheep before slaughter- ing, provided the season corresponds. Tanned pelts, or in any way dressed, will not answer, the duty being too high, say 2s 6d per dozen. " In sheep tallow, the great desideratum is color ; the best in this country is obtain- ed by selecting the fat, picking out the best pieces, and making two qualities ; but whether this can be done profitably with you or not, you must be the best...

Discovery of Coal at K. G. Sound. One of* the most important discoveries ever made in Western Australia, occurred during the past month, in the country to the eastward of K. G. Sound, accounts of which were received in Perth on Tuesday last, by the overland mail. Coal on the sea-coast, that great desideratum for our attainment of the much desired steam com- munication with England, is confidently reported to have been discovered by a man named Maxwell, only 2£ miles distant from ^the sea-coast, between Middle and. East Mount Barren, nearly where the captain of a whaler was said to have found it within 600 yards of the beach. Maxwell brought into K. G. Sound three specimeus, respect- ively, massive anthracite, slaty anthracite, and columnar anthracite or glance coal, and states that he found it plentifully crop- ping out on the sides of the valleys, and considers that the bitumen found along the shores of the neighboring coast, is carried out in the river which runs between the three...

Young, of Laun- ceston, to form a leagu«, in which the prin- cipal condition of membership is an en- gagement no longer to employ convicts as servants or laborers, has met with much favor there and in Hobart Town. The most recent quotations for wheat on the 12th December, were 3s. lOd. at Ho- bart Town, and 3s. at Launceston, but the latter was deemed nominal. Plour was stationary at £9 ^ ton for the best. The harvest prospects were decidedly favorable.
