To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

Ta the Editor of the ' Inquirer:' Sir, — Holding that a really sound scheme for political, social, or individual improvement, en trusted to the public papers, is, like the aeoni sown in tlie earth, sure to spring up, and by slow but sure accessions at last attain to size, vigour, beauty, and pre-eminence, however for a time it may remain invisible, I venture, even in these days, when so many of us are laudably engaged in different schemes for promoting the general prosperity of this colony, to delineate the follow ing scheme — viz., that a company of gentlemen in this colony shall raise a given sum of money, say .£5,000, by means of shares, and immediately employ an agent in England to collect and shi|i to this colony those labourers and their families of the description which may from time to time be most required, who shall be willing to bind themselves to repay, in stipulated instalments, the sum advanced for their passages and Outfits, to gether with such an increase as — bad de...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

To tlte Editor of tfie 'Inquirer.' Sir, — I wish to call your attention, and that of the ' Literati' of the colony to the curious fact, that the ' Meero' or throwing board of the na tives, generally conceived to be a weapon, entire ly new in its construction and use, is made nearly in the same fashion, and applied in a similar manner among the inhabitants of the Aleutian Isles, as shewn by the following passage from the Encyclopaedia Britanica, vol. 1. ' The darts or javelins with which they kill their game are formed with great neatness, these darie aro not ekot from a bow, but slung from a small plank] about IS inches long and 2 broad. In order that the weapon may be held the firmer they have a sort of handle at the lower end, and an opening through which the forefinger is thrust; at the other end is a small channel into which the javelin fits into a little knot, which serves to re tain it. When the javelin is to be thrown, the plank is held horizontally, and the aim being taken, ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' My deaii Sih, — On reading your very aide and candid report of the debate upon the bill fur licensing the occupation of Crown lands, as well as Mr. La r idor's playful and witty misrepresenta tion of my arguments, I observe one or two statements which call for notice on my part. I never stated that 'the limitation to four square miles was not intended to be a limitation at all ;' but simply that it would he difficult, if not impossible, to enforce the penalties of the Act against a licensee who depastured his flocks a mile, or even two miles, beyond his limits ; *-r, in other words, over a surface of 1C or 36 square miles, instead of 4; and that, the object of the Act being to secure to the occupier the right to form a civilised homestead within his grazing dis trict, the limit of 4 square miles was mentioned, although not fixed by the Act, as affording suffi cient space within which to choose uud form an establishment. I did not sta...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' gJB- — An ancient philosopher left behind him this golden rule, worship, or rather sludy, the echo, evidently implying that hearers, and con troversialists should observe that an echo never puts in a word until the speaker comes to a pause. A great and' comprehensive lesson, but being perhap* too concise for vulgar minds, it is gen erally neglected. 1 recommend ' C' to sludy it. W I wish to prevent some of his bold assertions be ^ ing received as truth. There are some inquirers after truth whenever; deign to implore the aid of knowledge on their re searches but advance with unblushing assurance, the most extraordinary dogmas. This new and profound physiologist has discovered seven va rieties of the human race, and how learnedly are they classed ! Not content with dividing the Mongolian variety into two, he has classed toge ther the Australian and the New Zealand, than whom no two people can be more diverse; the New Zealand belonging undoubtedly to t...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, 7th July, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, 1th July, 1841. His Excellency moved the order of the day for tbe second reading of the bill to regulate the slaughtering of cattle in towns. The Council went into committee on several amendments. G. Leake, Esq., suggested that, as the bill stood, any person slaughtering an animal, and making a present to his neighbour of a joint of meat, would be liable to the penalty. He thought also, that a publican or inn-keeper, slaughtering for the supply of his customers would also be liable, und proposed that the operation of the act should be limited to cases of actual sale or barter. The hon. it. W. Nash, said that these points were provided for by the spirit of the act, which would always be interpreted against the prose cutor. Mr. Leake replied that there was no such thing as the spirit of an act, in a penal enactment ; and that Magistrates could only look to the letter. Ultimately the proposed amendment fell to the ground. W. Tanner, Esq., noticed the difficulty tha...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

WEDNESDAY, J ULY 13, 1842. Our readers will perceive in another part of our journal a letter from the Hon. R. W. Nash, remarking on one or two statements that we put forth last week in our report of the debate upon the bill to prevent the unauthorised occupation of Crown lands ; also on some observations that we made relative to that debate, and finally upon certain portions of Mr. E. W. Landor'6 letter on the same subject. With regard to Mr. Lander's letter, we shall only say that the arguments therein imputed to Mr. Naeh, accord perfectly with our own recol lection of what actually fell from him pn the occasion alluded to, and will, we think, be found to agree in every material point with the spirit of our own report. For ourselves, it is our great study to report faithfully the proceedings of Council, and al though it may sometimes happen in the course of a long debate that some of the arguments are cm tailed or omitted altogether, for the lake of a wholesome brevity, yet we have...

To the Editor of t/ie 'Inquirer.' gIRj — While my friend Mr. Bussell s ease yet remains fresh on the public mind, I cannot re frain from troubling you with a iew remarks on the subject of the government of natives at tlie out-ports — a subject for which, a6 it conies under the class 'occulta vitia' I think you will not refuse to find room in jour much valued paper. ^ I have at various times and seasons been visitant at Port Leschcnault, the Vasse^und other (Out-statione, and consider therefore that my knowledge is sufficient to entitle me at least to a Rearing from my fellow colonists. What I have to observe, Sir, is, that while die government dictate the way in which natives are to be governed, they afford scarcely one tittle of assistance to the unfortunate settler in this very difficult affair. Nut even a place of safe custody for an offender ! and not a competent force for the apprehension of such offender ! While iTork has its superintendent of police — a man who, from former a...

BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER III. "To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 July 1842

BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Letter III. " To the Editor of the ' " Inquirer." SiIR, — It is a general charge made against our adopted country that we have no esculent fruits ; and certainly when we remember the bonnie Highland hills, with their blackberries, blae- berries, dew-berries, and cloud-berries, — the latter found on the confines of perpetual snow, — our catalogue of Western Australian fruits is a very meagre one, and even of the few we have, but few of the settlers know anything. Many of the plants belonging to the natural order Epacrideæ bear esculent fruits, which are fed upon by the emus, and which were, at one time, sought after by such of the settlers as were young and light- hearted enough to go into the bush and collect them. The fruit known by the settlers on the Vasse as the "Vasse apple," a species of Santalum, is   a 6sone-fruit, the largest varieties of which are about the size of a peach, and of a deep orange colour; it has long been known, when ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 July 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. ? To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' M Sir, — It does not greatly matter whether the A 'gentleman referred to by Mr. Nash in his late ^ speech, were Mr. Talbot or any one else. The slight allusion I made to him was complimentary, ana not disparaging. But I really think Mr. Nash need not nave been so rough with me for the innocent observation. In return for my polite attentions to himself, he pounces upon me with the most ferocious designs, and hauls me along by the collar in the most wicked manner, as if I were already a demoralized squatter who had transgressed (lie statute, and defied our Sov ereign Lady the Queen. I believe I did not misrepresent the learned Advocate-General in a single sentence. I took down his words as they fell from him. It is not however to be wondered at, if in the tumult of his eloquence — amid the rapid succession of brilliant images, thick-crowding fancies, and all that sort of thing — numberless expressions should escape the lips of the an...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 July 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — In a former letter to you I endeavoured to set forth the manifest absurdity of governing in the wilderness by laws adapted only to civilized countries, which still appears as ridiculous to me, as for the Downing-street gentlemen to fancy that they can, consistently with success, pass enact ments respecting our internal Colonial policy without consulting those whom these enactments so totally concern. Being wedded to a system, however seemingly plausible, which on exam ination proves to be false, shews at least a narrow mind j and to stand by laws, however inapplic able to the situations of those whom thnsc laws are designed to govern because they happen to be the laws of another country in other circum stances, seems a scheme as preposterous as the insertion of a clause into the code of the Medes and Persians, that no act could be repealed.

To tfie Editor of the ' Inquirer,' My Dear Shi, — In one of your late numbers of the Inquirer, you expressed your disappro bation of the conduct of the Trustees of Church property on sending to England for an iron roof for the new Church, and thereby depriving the mechanics of the colony of the benefits to which the construction of a wooden one would naturally afford them. As the course they have pursued appears to have created considerable prejudice against the Committee, and many have been in ducsd to withhold their subscriptions for the pre sent, and as the Trustees are desirous that the ef fect of the representation already made to the public should be at onoc obviated, I have to re quest that you will have the kindness to embody the following statement in any remarks you think you can justly make in vindication of the mea sure the Trustees have thought proper to adopt. As stewards of the funds of the Church entrusted to their care, they conceive that itisthcirbounden duty to ob...
