CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 August 1840
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir, — As its name implies, your paper will be open, I presume, to all matters connected with the public weal, that require correction. Allow me then to ask how it is that the roads in Guildford, are not improved by means of the income from the ferry. I hear rumours of wells, and wharfs, making and to be made, while the road from the ferry itself into the main street, and that up the hill from the Helena bridge, are in a very bad state,— indeed I doubt if the latter be passable for carts up the hill leading from the flat. Possibly there may not be money enough to make all these improvements, but surely the roads are more legitimate objects for outlay of money derived from a ferry, than the others I have named, and deserve at all events a priority of attention. I hope the trustees, on a hint being given them, may see, this thing in the same light I do, and at all events devote a small portion of their funds to the roads over which pass...

THE INQUIRER A WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 5th. 1840. ADDRESS TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 August 1840
A WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 5th. 1840. ADDRESS TO THE PUBLIC. In putting forth this our first number to the world, it will not be considered out of place should we say a few words as to ourselves, our views, our motives ; indeed such a course is now so universally practised, that any deviation from it might be construed into a want of respect to- wards those, whom most it is our desire to please — it is the usage — and to that we bow. This Journal has not been established without mature reflection ; it is not the consequence of a hasty idea, or half formed opinion, but has its origin in a deeply rooted conviction, formed from a long series of observation, of the necessity of the proceeding. The world at large remains lambatably ignorant of the true position of this Colony, — prejudice and misrepresentation, are yet stalking through the land blighting our hap- picit influences ; and although great exertions have been made to check the evil that has result- ed, the ...

We are sorry to announce that the Lady Stir ling was wrecked on the 7th. instant, and lest, this accident should be cited as another proof of the dangers of our much abused coast, we think it right to publish the following particulars. The Lady Stirling put to sea on the morn ing of the 7th. instant, having a day or two be fore, while in Port, sustained some injury in consequence of the negligence of the parties left in charge of her. About three miles from Fre mantle the vessel started a plank, and made so much water that it was thought advisable to run for the nearest land, and she was accordingly run ashore on the north side of Woodman's Point, wher...
THE INQUIRER A WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 August 1840
A WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12th. 1840. The rupture between Grrat Britain and Chi na forms a subject of considerable interest, and affords an ample field for speculation and con jecture, and as the proceedings of the Mother country must ever be of primary importance to our brother colonists, we purpose making a few remarks nnon this Question which seems to have awakened the attention of nearly ever nation on the globe. That a war will ensue between the two countries, seems scarcely to admit of a doubt ; the proceeding of the British Superintendent from the very outset, the deadly animosity which ex ists between the parties, directly point to such a result; and when we look at the mighty force that has been sent by the British Government to wards the coast of China, we cannot but think that they have made their resolve, and that war is inevitable. But will this war be confined to the English and the Chinese? We think not; other nations will join in the quarrel, and...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. &nbsp; &nbsp; Council Chamber Perth, 6th. August 1840. His Excellency commenced the proceedings with the order of the day for the second reading of the act to pro- hibit distillation in this Colony. The bill passed the second reading without any discussion and is to be read a third time on Thursday the 13th. inst. The Council then passed to the order of the day for the second reading of the bill to admit the evidence of the Ab- origines in criminal cases ; the bill having been read — Mr Leakc, observed that he thought the number of 24 stripes, to be inflicted for certain offences, was insufficient, and moved that the number should be increased to 48, — the motion was not seconded. His Excellency stated that he thought it would be as well to try the smaller number in the first instance ; the whole matter was one of experiment. Mr. Tanner, thought that the bill before them was one of great importance, and confessed that he had consider- able diffic...

RURAL AFFAIRS. vicina cogin Ut quamvis avido parerent arva colono [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 August 1840
RURAL AFFAIRS. ? — wv ? ? ? vicina cbegi Ut quamvis avido parerent arva coLono There is no one thing more deserving of attention in a young colony, than the cultivation of fruits and vegetables, and feeling assured that good information on the subject must be desirable we purpose from time to time giving such extracts from approved authorities, as will coavey tfee ne cessary information. Without wishing to impute indolence or negligence, to the Agriculturists of this colony, we must say that' rural af fairs in general have not met with that attention which their importance deserves ; we feel assured that a very large proportion of the vegetable productions of the tropics is ca pable of being propagated in this country, provided that proper skill and attention are brought to bear upon their culture ; the same may be said of most of the European productions, and yet how very few there are who have taken any steps to promote this most desirable object. It will be said ' oh 1 we have no...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 August 1840
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer Sib, — I observe that one of your inquiring friends has commenced his correspondence with a comment on the state of the roads at Guildford, and an appropriation of the ferry rents, which appears to anuoy him. No one but this cavilling traveller would for a moment consider it expedieu t to eriect alterations or improvement at this t-easou of the year, on roads composed of such materials, as are those men tioned, and ae there are no actual dangers in the path of a traveller through this place, I wonder that nothing has appeared to him more worthy of notice ou the road be tween it and Perth where holes in bridges, projecting limbs of trees, and stumps, render a uight journey exceedingly dangerous. Perhaps too the traveller delights iu such im provements as have recently been effected above Guildford, where, iuto all soft places, soft earth and green sods have been liberally cast, to the great discomfort of those who have no high horses nor ...
