INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 August 1842

INDIA. We copy from a Cape town paper of April 28th, the following account of the massacre of the British troops in their retreat from Cabul. It is contained in a letter written from Jullalabad, which up to the 18th March, still remained in the power of the British, although it was expect- ed every hour that the place would be besieged   by the ?????. The evacuation of Jullalabad     formed a part of the treaty concluded by General   Elphinstone with Ukhbar Khan, and an order had been sent to General Sale informing him of the treaty and ordering him to march to Peshawer. General Sale refused to obey the order, or to evacuate the town until he should hear of the safe arrival of the Caubul force. The Indian papers speak in strong terms of the want of moral courage displayed by General Elphinstone, and ascribe the loss and dishonour in this dreadful and cruel affair to his incompetency as a com- mander. The following is the extract re...

FATAL RENCONTRE WITH THE MURRAY NATIVES. South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 August 1842

JPATAL HEKCOKTnB WITn THE MJ5JIKAT JJA.TJYBS. South Australia. Yesterdcy Mr. Robiason arrived overland from New South Wales, bringing accounts that his party, with the ?tock uuder their charge, alter two desperate affrays with the natives on the Rufns, hud reached South Australia in ?afety. We are enabled to present to our readers full extracts from the official report of his Excellency the Governor, of Mr. Moorhouse, the Protector of Aborigines ; and to add to it the statement received by us yesterday from Mr. 'Robinsou. The painfully interostine details which these documents furnish render comment, for this week, at least, unneces sary ; more especially as an investigation of the facts by the bench of magistrates has just been ordered by the Governor, and the affair is likely to occupy public atten tion for some time. It is clear, however, on the surface, that no party can, for the present, pass safely from the Xew South Wales territory Into South Australia, unless sufficiently nu...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. August 18, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 August 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. August 18, 1842. The hour of meeting was fixed at 12 o'clock precisely. The 'bill to provide a summary remedy in cases of breach of contract' was read a third time, and passed. On the motion for the third reading of the bill to explain the law relating to the building of churches, &c, G. Leake, Esq., renewed his ap plication to know whether a clause might not be inserted iu the bill to enable the trustees to raise money by the mortgage of the pews, or by other mean?. It was the opinion of the Council that such a clause could not properly be inserted in the pre sent bill ; it was for a distinct object, which might be obtained by the introduction of a sepa rate bill for the purpose. Mr. Leake applied for leave to bring in such a bill, and leave was granted accordingly. His Excellency gave no tice for the third reading on the 25lh instant. The bill for the relief of insolvent debtors was read a first time. Mr. Leake mentioned that he should probably move se...

POPULATION OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 August 1842

POPULATION OF SYDNfeY. (From a Sydney Paper.) It would be satisfactory to trace the returns through the last twenty years, but uhfortuneately, those of 1821 are not to be depended upon as correct, for they give a larger population than thoBe of. 1828. — 1828 .. 10,815 1833 . . 16,232 ? ? 501 in 5 years 1636 . . 10,729 . . 21-5 in 3 ditto. 1841 .. 29,073 .. 61-9 in 5 ditto. The gross increase within the ]ast thirteen years has licen 177-1 per cent.; that is, for every 100 inhabitants in the year 1828, there are Mils year 277. This gives a mean increase of more than 13 J per cent, per annum. Perhaps there is no town in Ehgliiiid with which Syd ney may be bo fairly compaircd, us with that of Liverpool, there being none, probably, in winch the increase of ?pop- ulation is so largely indebted to the influx of settlers, over and above its own natural increase from births. The population of Liverpool, at the Census of 1821, was 118,072, and at that x-f 1831, it was 165,221 j being an in cr...

THE SQUATTING BILL. A SONG FOR 'THE FARMERS AT YORK FAIR. Ah ! say not, forlorn one ! we verge upon ruin — That not even N ? h can avert our undoing ; That Stanley refuses to let us buy land At less than a pound for each acre of sand — Why need we to dread any temporal ill When the Governor grants us his choice Squatt ing Bill ?

In conseqaeuce of tke reports of the fate of Mr. Inraau's and Mr. Laughonie'e parties, we were well armorl. In proceeding' down the Murruinbidgee we saw blacks the whole way, but kept them off the camp, and never allowed ope to come near. The Darling was in full stream, and there were three cattle lost in crossing. On approaching the Rufus I had remained a day's march behind, looking for the strayed cattle, aud saw 30 or 40 natives, armed, proceeding across the track towards the Lake. The blacks, on seeing me, crossed the Murray. The day following I had jrane ahead to look for a landing place. On my return to meet the party, I saw about 300 blacks. On their perceiving me, they formed themselves into a half-circle, end appeared to be inclined to oppose our progress. : I imm...

EXTRACTS FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. LORD STANLEY ON THE DISPOSAL OF CROWN LANDS. NEW PASSENGERS BILL: AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAMD LANDS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 August 1842

EXTRACTS FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. Lord Stanley on the disposal of Crowx Lands* New PA89ENG3RS BlLL : AUSTRALIAN AND New Zealamd Lands Bill. ' In moving, on Friday, for leave to bring in two bills, Lord Stanley 'said, that although he could not give the sanction of Government to the report of a general scheme of emigration, he had two important measures to bring before the House —one to provide better security to poor emigrants against frauds and inconveniences on their passage, and the other to obviate the fluctuating systems of alienating land in certain colonies. With re spect to a general scheme of emigration, he had seen none proposed which would not be a Imrdcn on the country. Nor was it necessary : the average number of persons who had emigrated on their own account during the last five years, except in 1838, when emigration to British North America was interrupted by political causes, was from 75,000 to 80,000 annually ; in 1840, 90,700 emigrated \ in the first three quarters...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 August 1842

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 1842. By the arrival of the Simon Taylor, we have English news down to the 30th April last. The Simon Taylor brings to this colony 219 emi grants, men, women, and children, being the first lot consigned by the home government upon our labour-fund. The health of the emigrants is reported to be very good ; two out of the whole number shipped died on the passage, from what cause we have not as yet heard stated, and two children Trere born. The new-comers were re ceived on their landing by R. Mc Bride Brown, Esq., the Resident Magistrate at Fremantle, and were apparently well pleased with the premises lately purchased by the local government for their accommodation. They are chiefly agricul tural labourers, of tbe good old English sort, ruddy and smock-frocked, which we take to be tbe distinguishing marks of the English peasant. Of the whole number, there are not more than 150 adults, vith a very large proportion of women and young children. Of the latter there are...
