THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 July 1842

WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1842. By the arrival of the Houghton-le-Skerne, we have English ne.\vsto the beginning of February, and Cape news to June 11th. We have not re ceived our files of English papers in time to give any. detailed account of the state of affairs at home, but we shall erive a brief sum mar v of the news we have been able to glean from various quarters. The intelligence of the massacre of the British troops and residents at Cabul, which reached us some time ago, is confirmed, but even now we have no authentic particulars respecting it. The whole account was read by the passengers of the Houghton-le-Skerne in the Cape Town newspa pers, but up to thi6 time we have not fallen in with any mention of it in print. It seems fated that we are never to get at the real facts of this melancholy history. From what we now learn, it appears that the troops and partisans of Dost Mohammed — who is now, or was lately, a pri soner in Calcutta — surrounded the town of Cabul, in the possess...

APPROPRIATION OF ONE HUNDRED-ACRE SECTIONS. Australind, July 5,1842 [Communicated.] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 July 1842

APPROPRIATION OF ONE HUNDRED- ACRE SECTIONS. Australind, July 6, 1842 [Comnuu i.;ated.] Yesterday will be a day memorable in the annals of this settlement. The great prizes in the wheel were distributed, and the lucky pur chasers of the best 100 acre sections put in possession of their allotments. It will be remembered that the Company in England sold 500 lots of 100 acres each, to be chosen out of their possessions in this district. The choice of these allotments was decided by a lottery in England, the person who drew No. 1 having the first choice, and so on in numerical order. The survey of 150 lots having been completed, and their boundaries set ouf, the Chief Commis* sioner had published his intention to throw them open to selection on the 4th. He had caused this survey and marking out of allotments to be first carried on in the immediate vicinity of the town, and up the line of the Brunswick and Wellesley a certain distance ; consequently the most valuable allotments were evid...

REVIEW. (Concluded from No. 101) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 July 1842

REVIEW. Journals of two Expeditions of Discovery, &c.,&c., By   George Grey, Esq. (Concluded from No. 101) We have seen that from the moment when Mr. Grey first learnt the destruction of his pro0 vision depot on Bernier Island, he had the most gloomy anticipations of the result of his expedi- tions. He saw clearly that every object must be abandoned to the pressing necessity of regain- ing the settlement as speedily as possible. Scientific discovery was no longer the question ; what now concerned him most was to rescue his party from the dangerous position into which all were thrown by the fatal mischances that had occurred. These gloomy anticipations seem to have come more strongly upon him after the destruction of the boats, for although the men that were with him talked lightly of the long and toilsome walk before them, Mr. Grey, better in- formed of the probable nature of the intervening country, never disguised from himself that the settlement was o...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. July 14, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 July 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. J% 14, 1842. On the order of the day, for the third reading of the bill to prevent the unauthorised occupation of Crown Lands, being moved, W. Tanner, Esq., moved as an amendment the suspension of the 5th clause of the rules and orders of Council, and that the bill be recom mitted. Mr. Tanner then brought forward his amend ment making it compulsory on the Collector of Revenue to regrant or renew all licenses pre viously granted. The object was to give confi dence to the licensee, and to encourage him to improve the land occupied. He looked forward to very extensive Ieasings under the Act, which he thought a useful one, but only so far as the position of a licensee was made by it to differ from that of an ordinary squatter. By the amendment proposed, a licensee would be en couraged to improve, and would be in many respects placed on the footing of a fee-simple proprietor. A xery long discussion followed on this amendment, which was seconded by T. N. Yule, Esq. Th...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 July 1842

Subscribers are respectfully informed, that tfie qraricihj subscription to this journal ends with the present No. WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 1842L The refusal of the Seecretary of State to snnctioirthe late change made by our local go vernment in the disposal of Crown lands, has caused the most unbounded dissatisfaction throughout the colony, and for the first time we Jiear it loiullv questioned how fur it is consistent with the rights of Colonists to have their own laws objected to, and others transmitted, at the mere wiil of the Secretary of State, -which are plainly at variance with our wants and wishes, «nd opposed to the true prosperity of the coun try.

THE NIGER EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 July 1842

T&E NIGER EXPEDITION. Tins expedition, originating we beliflve, in Mr. Powell Buxton, who proposed to impede and dis courage the slave trade by the establishment of factories, in Lite interior of Africa, has turned out ? a most perfect failure ; the white settlers in the model colony that had been formed 270 miles up the Niger having been driven away by the pesti lential climate, at least so many of them as have survived its I ancful effects. The whole scheme, which had for its object to civilize the continent of Africa, and thereby to extinguish the slave trade has been utterly abandoned, the attempt having cost the mother count: y nearly ,£70,000. We extract the following from the Colonial Ga zette of 2nd February last, shewing the results of the expedition. — ' Capiaiu Trotter, tlie Commander of the Niger expe dition, ui rived at Liverpool on Tuesday sennight, in the Warre, a steam- vessel belonging to Mr. Jamieson.

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER IV. To the Editor of the "Inquirer," [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 July 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER IV. To the Editor of the "Inquirer,"   SIR, — Of the very natural and highly im- portant order Gramincæea of Justieu, I have gathered in Western Australia about 70 species ; many of these are described by Dr. Brown as found in other parts of New Holland, and it ap- pears that a few of our grasses, as the Anthisti- ria Australis, our kangaroo-grass, are common to the tropical parts of this vast island, as well as to Van Diemen's Land. Mr. Brown de- scribes above 200 Australian grasses, and about half that number are confined to the tropical parts of the island. We have a few interesting grasses which are not described by Mr. Brown ; the lemon-scented grass of the Toodyay district is one of these : it is a true perennial, with the habit and appearance of Anthistiria, but with the inflorescence of Panicum; the leaves, when trodden upon or rubbed between the fingers, smell like lemon-thyme, and I consider it the bes...

?*? CORRESPONDENCE. To tfte Editor oftlte « Inquirer.' Sir, — I remember whilst on my passage to this colony hearing the master of the ship telling the tale, that when he was in command of a ship homeward bound from India, entering the chan nel, he saw a vessel, and coming sufficiently close he hailed her and asked the news, supposing that he might perhaps hear of a change of ministry, a declaration of war, or some national calamity, or other interesting circumstance. The answer was ' Pilchards be riz ; hakey-fish be fell ;' a re ply denoting to a certainty the occupation of the respondent and furnishing an example, that how ever little the public mind may be interested in our individual engagements, still our thoughts cling to that object which most interests us. One of the few passers-by who are unwillingly obliged to come near my station was yesterday questioned by me, ' what news there might be in Perth.' Amongst other things he told me that the ' Inquirer had been publishing a ...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir, — Little being known at the Swan of the progress or proceedings at Australind, I take the opportunity of a few leisure minutes to say a few words on the subject. Within the last few months the advancement of this settlement has been highly creditable to the Australindians, indeed, I doubt if even Perth made such progress m so short a time. The surveys are nearly completed, houses are appear ing in every direction, farms are progressing, and indeed every thing augurs well for its future pro* gress j but above all none despair, all hope for the best, and unanimously work together for the attainment of the one desired end,— the prosper ing of the settlement. And why 6kould it not ?prosper? It is the finest district in the colony ?as yet known, possessing good soil, good feed, I and abundance of water hi the dry season. I am I answered perhaps, that the hundred acre sections ? can never succeed ; hut that I deny, for these ? reasons, — first with re...
