THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 26th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 October 1840

Subscribers are respectfully informed that t/ie first Quarter's Subscription to this Journal ends with tlie present number. WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 28th. 1840. We this day give insertion to a project for forming a Western Australian Timber Company in England, to which be beg to call the attention of our readers. The projector is an old resident of this colony, and one intimately acquainted with mercantile affairs, and his ulan carries with it such an appearance of practicability that we confidently hope to see it matured. It would be well for our brother colonists if the advantages to be derived from the operation could be confuted to this colony, but our limited means will not al low us to move in an affair of such magnitude, and the projector has pointed out the only way in which it can be rightly effected, viz : by a Company established in England for the purpose. Among ourselves, we may be satisfied that the thing would pay, but unfortunately we are not tlie only persons to whom this...

(Lord John Russell's Instructions concluded) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 October 1840

(Lord John EusseWs Instructions concluded) The medical care of the emigrants on the ?voy- age is a matter requiring the most careful at tention. It will be a difficult question how the office of surgeon-superintendent may be best pro vided for in such numerous vessels as may be ex pected to be required for all the Australian settle ments. The agent-general has with propriety en deavoured gradually to introduce a proportion of private surgeons into the service, as surgeons of the navy can hardly be permanently obtained in sufficient numbers, and must also not unnaturally be a more expensive class of officers. It is evi dent, however, of how much value they are ren dered by their previous experience and attain ments, and it is possible that the Commissioners will always find it expedient to retain as many of them as the exigencies of their own service will enable the Board of Admiralty to spare for this purpose. For the management of the people on board the emigrant ships, a code of i...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, 4th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 November 1840

Subscribers are resjjectjiilly informed that the , second ?. Quarter's Subscription to this Journal begins rvitk the present number. WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, 4th. 1840. : We last week brought to a conclusion onr pub lication of Lord John Ruesel's Instructions to the newly appointed Land and Emigration Com missioners. The document is somewhat lengthy, but we do not observe that any particularly new principle has been pointed out with regard to what has been xery properly called the ' Art'* of colonization ; (heie are however one or two points on which we 6hall make a few remarks. The establishment of a board of Commission ers for the sale of Colonial waste lands, although certainly not free from objection, is a point grained ; for reference being had to the way in which this business was done under the old management, it may fairly be expected that any change must be for the better; it is tiue that the Commissioners receive their instructions from the Colonial Office, and thus our masters...

To the Editor of the Inquirer [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 November 1840

To the Editor of the Itiouirer Sir, — Matty excellent remarks upon the lands granted to the early settlers have appeared in the ' Inquirer,' but one error in the original letter of occupation, of consider able consequence to the owners of land, has not as yet been noticed by you. The letter of occupation states that your boundary lines run N. N. W. and S. S. E. from a given point, by compass, or in some grants perhaps, eoine other course, but the words by compass ace invariably used. This is I conceive a very indefinite description, and one, that cannot at all periods of time be demonstrated ; because the compass has a variation at almost every place on the globe, and which variation is subject to continual change : the words by coin pats, therefore render the defination anything but positive. Had the letter only stated 6. S. E. and N. N. W., it would have been dear that such lines in any country could have been correctly drawn. It is stated upon good authority that in the year 1662...

(FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 November 1840

(FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) —uuu — Van Diemen's Land is generally considered in England, as one of the most favoured places in tne world as regards climate. ThiB, however, is not borne out by a reference io the medical statistics of the island. In aud near Hobart Town, for instance, rheumatism is very prevalent, arising no doubt from the close propinquity of tue bleak and bluff Mount Wellington, and the situation of the town, not far from the sea, on a large river. From the peculiar situation of Hobart Town, it necessarily occurs, that it is subjected to considerable variation iu the temperature caused by cur rents of air, which change, ou the instant, from a wiud granting warmth and life, to the cold &ea blast. It must be evident that any disease of the chest in a situation of this description, must of necessity require great nicety iu the management, and must with the utmost care be very difficult of cure. Launceston is even more favourably si tuated than Hobart Town, for the ...

Infamous Outrage. Whereas £-r some time past, the most wanton trespasses have been committed on the land of Thomas Williams (being 6,000 acres situate on the Lakes near Perth, held from Mr. Walters,) by par ties ostensibly coming in pursuit of game, and natives armed with guns, by which a great number of the said Thomas Williams' pigs have, from time to time, been shot, his grass and timber fired and burnt, and other valuable property de stroyed ; and, within a few days past, a valuable sow being so shot by a native 6ent by some person to shoot ducks ; — and, whereas, on Monday, the 28th, twenty valuable pigs, the property of the said Thomas M it Hams, were shot by some person orjpersons unknown ; on the part of the said Thomas Williams I here by give notice that any person or per sons found on said land, without lawful authority, will be most rigorously pro secuted.

NOVEMBER AND AUGUST ASTEROID. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 November 1840

November and August Asteroids. Some time ago the attention of the public was drawn, by a letter in the Perth Gazette, to the occurrence of an un- usual number of meteors at stated times in the year, and as we observe that the 12th November is one of the times for their periodical return, we recur to the subject in the hope that some one or more of our scientific readers will be found willing to watch the phenomenon.   It appears that this periodical occurence excites very considerable interest among the different learned societies     in Europe ; numerous observations are annually made in order to ascertain the times at which the meteoric shower is at its height, and it may be important that this phenom- enon should be observed in our part of the world. It may be that the shower is not visible in these Southern latitudes, but it would be satisfactory to know whether it is the case or not. From 3 to 4 hours after midnight of the 12th No- vember,...
