THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. "Vox populi, vox Dei." SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 March 1849

. . THE INDEPENDENT JOURNAL. ! Voxpopuli, vox Dei" SATUEDAïT]ÎOjicîri7,184£h THE Legislative Council is convened for Wednesday, the 18th of April next, when it will continue to meet each week until the business is concluded. We gave in a late number the heads of the several bills which will be laid before the Council, several of which are of much importance, and their consideration, with that of the estimates for the year 1850, and the debate on the Land Regulations, will no doubt occupy considerable time. We understand some new regulations with regard to the estimates as passed by the Council, have been received from the Home Government, which places them out of the power of the Governor of the colony as to any alteration of the sums voted. As it stood before, the voting of any sum for a particular purpose by the Legislative Council, was a mere farce, it being at all times in the power of the Governor either to expend the sum or not, according to his particular ideas upon its exped...

Revolt of Slaves in St. Croix. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 March 1849

Révolt of Slaves in St. Croix. We have received particulars of an in- surrection \vhich took place in the Danish island of St. Croix on the 2nd June. The slaves rose en masse on that day, took pos- session of the towns of Christiansted and Fredericksted, and loudly demanded free- dom. An express was immediately sent for His Excellency Peter von Schölten, the Governor General of the Danish West India settlements, residing in St. Thomas, who proceeded at once to St. Croix. On his arrival it was found that the revolted slaves had committed great excesses, and the lives of many of the planters had been attempted. On several estates the crops had been fired, and the houses of the ma- nagers plundered. All communication be- tween the towns was stopped, the roads being in possession of the rioters. Hund- reds of women and children had taken re- fuge on board the Danish vessels in harbor. The Governor, accompanied by an aide-de- camp, immediately drove out, and demand- ed of the leaders wha...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. Life in the Bush—The Shepherd. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 24 March 1849

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. Life in the Bush-The Shepherd. Any man can make a shepherd, the duty is so light. Quick eyes and sharp hearing are the most desirable qualifications. Two or three flocks are generally placed at each station, consisting of from 800 to 1000 each ; these flocks are confined dur- ing the night in hurdles. The shepherd ribes just before sunrise, puts his quart pot on the fire full of water, for tea, and having tried or boiled some beef or mutton, makes a good breakfast ; then lighting his Íripe, he calls his dog, and sallies forth to et his flock out of the fold, if he thinks proper. If he has any reason to doubt, he counts them out. Most shepherds count their sheep out once a week, unless they Lave any suspicion that the hut-keeper is earling on foul play-such as stealing* or lolling sheep in the night-'then they count them out every morning ; but a good shep hérdj who has confidence in himself and îns^hut-keeper, seldom counts them out because it disturbs them, ...

New Discovery for Treating Deafness. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 31 March 1849

New Discovery for Treating Deaf- ness. Among the few things which have defied the medical art and its practitioners, none has been so invincibly incurable as cases of deafness induced by perforations of the membrance of the drum of the ear. Mr. Y^ai'sley, however, profiting by a slight and imperfect hint, has made a valuable disco- very on this subject which will long render his name remarkable. The first hint he had towards this discovery was from a deaf patient, who had resorted to him from America, and who occasionally succeeded in " opening the ear to a greater increase of hearing " by inserting a spill of paper, moistened with saliva, into the ear as far aa the nieatus. We now let Mr. Tearsley speak for himself, we quote from the Lancet : Such an' interesting fact could not fail to excite my attention, and it naturally ac curred to me to try so simple a method in other cases. I did so with several which appeared to be identical with that pf my patient, but I invariably failed. ...

Tyrannies in a Free Country. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Independent Journal of Politics and News — 31 March 1849

Tyrannies in a Free Country* Let not the reader be startled by the words at the heading of this Chapter. We are not about to enter into a political dis- quisition ; we are not about to declaim in the style of the hustings, the platform, the House of Commons, or in any style or way whatsover, upon political grievances. We are not about to express any satisfaction or dissatisfaction with Whig or Tory, Li- beral or Conservative. Ou the contrary, wre are about to confess at the outset-and eschew politics after the confession-that all things considered, and comparing our- selves with our neighbors on the continents of Europe and America, we are about"as free a people as any that exist upon the earth. We arc theoretically free by the law-free to think, free to speak, free to write, almost free to trade ; and are, be- sides, in a tolerably faur way of removing most of the impediments to the more per- fect practical freedom in these and other respects that has been imagined for hu- manity b...

M i s c e 11 anea». ETCHINGS BY HER MAJESTY AND THE PRINCE CONSORT.-The interest which] every loyal subject cannot but feel in ali that'relates to works of art executed by the Queen and his Royal Highness Prince Al- bert, induces us to refer to one of the most interesting collections of etchings which ever came under our notice ; the whole of which have been executed by Her Majesty and the Prince Consort. We understand, that this unique collection wúl shortly be exhibited to the public, and thus enable the whole nation to form an opinion of her Majesty's and the Prince Consort's great merits in a branch of the fine arts in which it is so difficult to excel. That both the Queen1 and the Prince rank xery high in this department of art, their unite4 and separate productions (nearly 100) most amply testify.
