CORRESPONDENCE. "To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 June 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. 11 To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr. Editor, — Always unwilling to trespass upon your space in the Inquirer, I have defer red writing to you on the present subject until I find myself absolutely bound to do so, as I consider it nuw necessary to draw public atten tion to the nuisance which I am about to de scribe. I am a farmer in one of the southern districts, and have been for some time greatly annoyed by the depredations of numbers of wild cattle. I have cleared a portion of ground, and being (like Mr. Landor) jealous of horticulture, 1 have made me a garden ;, turnips, r«|ie, aud cahhugrs us well us other 'esculents, did bid (air lo remu nerate ma for all m) teits. Oh, Sir! had yon but seen the globules of morning dew., sparkling like diamonds upon the.se my fii'bt productions, you would indeed comuiiecrate-with me on hear ing my pitiful story. i have charge of a flock of sheep, and am therefore the most part of the day absent from tny home; neither have I any...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 June 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — I have observed in your journal Mr. Cunningham's remarks on ploughing, and the various implements connected with that operation, and I humbly trust I shall not be trespassing on your space, or the public, by referring to a sub ject of so great importance in agriculture. It has been observed that the mould-board plough ac celerates the exhaustion of moisture, by turning the moist soil upwards, and the dry downwards, , which is seldom done here as the ground is most ly of an equal moisture before it is ploughed, and I always understood that turning the soil greatly contributed to its fertility. But I think it will be found that there are other evils attending the use of the mould-beard plough, and I am sur prised that they are not more generally noticed. Now if we look at a piece of stiff land that is well ploughed with the mould-board plough, it ap pears like so many rows of bricks, resting or ra ther reclining against each other, with their u...

As the substance of it had been made known at the last meeting, hu should now simply move that it be read. The petition was then read by the Clerk. Mr. Leake, in moving its reception, begged to say a few words, and, no opposition being offered, the hon. member spoke as follows: — In England the question of Corn laws is one of extreme difficulty, beset ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 June 1842

We have received a Utter from W. L. Broch' man, Esq., relative to our remarks on the subject of the Corn-law petition. We regret that it reached us too late for insertion this week, but it shall appear in our next. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29, 1842. We call the attention of our readers to the ex position of the financial affairs of the colony made by his Excellency the Governor, and whkh will be found at length in our report of the pro ceedings of the Legislative Council on Thursday last. From the Governor's statement, it appears that the total sum at the command of government for the finance year 1841— '42 was £15.625 18s. 8d. — an insignificant sum as compared with the mighty revenues of othrr countries, but exceed ingly great to be drawn from bo small a popula tion as ours. Although the whole of this sum has not been expended, the balance remaining to the public credit is considerably less than was the ease at the close of the financial year 1841, and the difference between these two bala...

To the Editor of tfte « Inquirer .' Dear sir, — It is the peculiar privilege of old age to give advice, to furnish things both new and old for the information and guidance of youth and inexperience, and when this privilege is di rected to the benefit of the age we live in, com bining in its exercise the kindness of a good heart and the polish of a liberal education, now much good may be effected, how much love and esteem is engendered. Thus may it be said of the pro ceedings of Colonicus our venerable friend. For my own part I have never of late taken up your interesting journal without anxiously looking for the effusions of his pen, so redolent of wit and useful admonitions, combining the enthusiasm of a master spirit with the gentleness and courtesy of true nobility, the literal suaviter in modo et fortifcr in re. I will not believe that Culonicus is fond of flattery, or that he has desired any other attainment than the good of our interesting colony, but he especially deserves th...

Slade, and Charles Heales, were elected members; Mr. Lefrov was proposed as a member and will be ballottedfor at next meeting. The Secretary stated he had written to the Western Agricultural Society relative to the Union of the two Societies hut had received no answer. It being thought most likely the letter had miscarried, Mr. Landor proposed that the Secretary should send a duplicate to the Secretary of the Parent Society. Mr. Smith proposed — That the Annual Fair should be held at York, the first Friday in Sep tember. Mr. R. Viveash motion — That no Member should receive the gratuity for native dogs killed by himself, was put and carried. Mr. R.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. JUNE 28, 1842. His Excellency rose for the purpose of bring ing the question of finances under theconsideration of Council, on which he spoke as follows : — I have already adverted, at the first meeting of Council, to the state of our finances, and in formed you that serious deficiencies have occur- , red under several heads, principally of the incidental revenue, and that though the perma nent revenue was, on the whole, steadily increas ing* yet that the colonial resources had been found inadequate during the past year to meet the many exigencies of the public service which increasing' ly press themselves upon the notice of the government, and to the greater part of which it has been impossible to give nny but one invaria ble reply — that whilst the utility and propriety of the work desired to be performed might not be disputed, the means at the command of govern ment forbade its being even taken into considera- ^ tion.

THE OBNOXIOUS BILL. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 June 1842

THE 0BN0XI0U8 BILL. To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — Your own admirable remarks on this subject last week have scattered such havoc and dismay among the ranks of the enemy, that pity almost inclines me to sheathe my Durindana. To me is only left the unpleasing duty of hewing at the backs of the routed. You, sir, may be liken ed to Arthegal, that courteous knight of Justice, who having with his own lance overthrown the chief of his opponents, was wont to order his iron man, Talus, to scatter the scum. Before how ever, I brand their hinder quarters with my flail, I will venture to hazard a few general observations. I feel strongly impelled to sny something of the colonies anciently formed by Greece and Rome, but remembering that the Counsel in 'Leg Plaidetirs' of Racine, who began his oration with ' avant la naissance du monde.' was interruot ed by the learned judge with ' Avocat ! ah, pas sons au deluge' — so I, fearful of being asked to pass on to the Conquest, consent to adv...

ON THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN NATIVE. LETTER III. "To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 June 1842

ON THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE WESTERN AUS- TRALIAN NATIVE. Letter III. 'To the Editor of the "'Inquirer." SIR, — I cannot avoid using technical terms in describing a few of the points of difference be- tween the skulls of this race and those of other races ; but it is of little importance, at medical menare sufficiently numerous in the colony to   afford a ready explanation. Whilst describing the form of the Australian skull, I shall point out the difference between it and those of some other races without giving a description of skulls in general, which would u-n necessarily lengthen my letter. " Of all the pepuliarities in the form of the bony fabric, those of the skull are the most strik- ing and distinguishing. It is in the head that we find the varieties most strongly characteristic of the different races. The characters of the countenance, and the shape of the features, de- pend chiefly on the conformation of the bones of the head." The Australian skuil belongs to that...

Describing many newly discovered, important, and fer- tile districts ; with observations on the moral aad phy- sical condition of the Aboriginal inhabitants, &c., &c. By George Grey, Esq., Governor of South Australia. 2 vols : 8vo. We hardly know what to say of this book, although the name of this colony, appearing so prominently in its very voluminous title page, renders it necessary that we should give our settlers some idea of the contents. Whoever shall take up these volumes in the hope of finding information on the position and prospects of West ern Australia, of ascertaining the condition of society — the state of the settlers — the progress that has been made — or the resources which the colony offers to the emigrant — in short of finding any particulars which a person would rea- sona...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 6, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 July 1842

WEDNESDAY, JULY 6, 1842. We invite the attention of our readers to our report of the proceedings of the Legislative Coun cil on Thursday last ; and more especially to that part of it thut details the discussion on the second reading of the bill to prevent the unauthorised oc cupation of Crown lands. The arguments used by the Advocate General and the Governor, in support of the Bill, were so extraordinary that it is difficult to conceive how reasonable men could have allowed them to pass without exposure, and yet, with the exceplion of the stand made against the anount of the annual license, there was little opposition, and no censure ; and the bill was al lowed to pass the second reading without an alteration in any of its monstrous absurdities. We had prepared an article in which we had entered into an examination of the arguments uned by the supporters of the measure, and attempted to ex pose their gross inconsistency, when we received a letter to The same purpose, from E. W. Land...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, 30th June, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 July 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, dOth June, 184k The adjourned discussion on Mr. Leake's motion for an address to the Governor, praying him to bring in a bill to impose a duty on foreign grain and flour was opened by — The hon.the Col.Secretary, who rose to oppose the motion, and argued generally that it was the duty of government to promote the equal interests of' all classes, and not to enrich one at the expense of others which lattci would be the effect of a corn-law, and that all regulations at all affecting the freedom of commerce could only be looked upon as premiums offered to particular interests. Admitting e'ven that restrictive regulations con ferred advantage on a greater or less number of individuals, this was no proof of their being of ad vantage in a public point of view. The exclusion of any article from abroad, might possibly en courage the growth of it at home, and raise the price to the benefit of the producers ; but this was no advantage to the purchasers, or consumers, to wh...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 July 1842

To the Editor of the ' luquirer.' Sir, — AH who are likely to be effected by the measures of Government, hate a rigiit to raise their voice against them. It cannot therefore excite surprise if I, for one, make bold to examine the rensous for laying this additional burthen upon the neck of Western Australia, as they were advanced on Thunday last by his Excellency the Governor, and the acting Advocate-Gone ml. And when I have done ?o, I think it will be admitted on all hands, that if these were the true reasons for bringing forward the measure, they were simply worthy of the cause in which they Wf re urged, and that both desprve to be swept away together. The Aflvocate-Genern! is a man of talent, and it is com monly unfortunate for his opponents that he is always possessed of a ready stock of ingenious arguments to sup port his views and opinions, which invariably stand iu the greatest need of such assistance. He is a great, and, I will add, a delightful theorist, leading away our cap...

REVIEW. Journals of two expeditions of discovery, &c., &c. By George Grey, Esq. [Continued from our last.] Although we have seen that the explorations of Mr. Grey in N. W. Australia are extremely limited, and are wanting in any very great geographical result, yet it cannot be denied that the account of his expedition to and from the River Glenelg is highly interesting, and affords very pleasant reading. The various incidents occurring to himself and party in the course of the journey are related in a manly, straightfor- ward way, and cannot fail of exciting that sort of interest and sympathy which is produced by the perusal of the adventures of persons engaged in a dangerous service, even where the only result is an account of personal hardships. His descrip- tions of scenery, and of the geological formation of the country passed over, are also numerous and striking ; and the person taking up the book for the purpose only of amusement, in search of "moving accidents ...

We regret this the less as, with the ex ception of two cases, there was nothing of any great interest. One of these was an indictment ibr perjury, in which the party was acquitted; it would be therefore unnecessary to drag the parti culars before the public. The other was a case of manslaughter oi' a native child, the particulars of which we arc anxious to report, as evincing the determination of the government to protect the natives, and thoroughly to investigate the circum stances of every such case, even where it may arise from the purest accident, as was the case in the present instance. diaries Iiusscll, Esq., was indicted lor the manslaughter of a native female child, aged 7 years, by shooting her with a gun.
