CORN-LAW ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 August 1842

CORN-LAW ADDRESS. The Address of the Legislative Council of the Colony of Western Australia to His Ex cellency the Governor, Shkweth, — That the experience of 12 year* has proved that the soil and climate of Western Australia are eminently qualified to produce a regular sup ply of the necessaries of life. That one of the first objects of round policy is to secure the production within each country of what is necessary to the subsistence of its in habitants. That, while it is da rigorous for any country to depend upon importation for its supplies of food, this danger is increased iii proportion to rlie paucity of the population, and the distance from whence the supplies are to be obtained. That hitherto the amount of grain raised in this colony has never completely equalled the con sumption ; while in almost every instance the fanner could as easily have produced double or treble the quantity. That the increase of wheat-tillage 'has not kept pace with the increase of population, and ...

THE SAME NOT THE SAME. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 August 1842

THE SAME NOT THE SAME. In one of the Canadian papers last received we find this passage — ' The weather during the last few days has been mild to an extraordinary degree for the season ; being much more like March than January weather. The snow, we regret to tay, is mettfny r ipiilly before the heat of the sun.' The sentence reads oddly enough in England, where enow is considered a nuisance. It is true, that a moment's reflection reminds one, that on the maintenance of a good snow-surface for some months iu the year depends the in ternal communication of Canada ; that all business and all pleasures are interrupted when the sleigh cannot run smoothly. At the same time, we are struck with the total dissimilarity in the whole plan of an important part of life, locomotion, during the great part of the year, between this country and the other. We regard sunshine as a blessing, come when it may ; our Canadian brethren as the opposite, in winter. Our instinctive desires on that point are t...

EXTRACTS FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. THE PRICE OF LAND CANNOT BE FIXED BY AUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 August 1842

EXTRACTS FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. THE PRJCIS OF LAVD C A KNOT BE flJLED BT AUCTION. A dogma of which official economists arc most tenacious is, that it is better to sell laud by auc tion than at a fixed price, because it realises more money : and so i'urf in respect to the mew accumulation of cash iu the Government coffers, it may be an advantage. It is, however, a very trifling advantage to either colony or mother country ; and the disadvantages are likely to be* come so apparent as to convince even the bigots of office. The town of Auckland, the official settlement in New Zealand, is scarcely marked out for a town before it affords one of the strongest instances ever given of the peculiar evils resulting from sale by auction. The ad vantages were realised lo the utmost extent ; the prices obtained for land were many hundredfold greater than any price which would be fixed in New Zealand ; the case is as favourable for the advocates of sale by auction as it could be. The average pri...

THE FIRST GENERAL COLONIZATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 August 1842

THE FIRST GEXERAL COLONIZATION BILL. The nuuour of a Government Emigration scheme has given place to a practical measure, of a far less magnificent aspect indeed, but still of sufficient importance to mark a stage in the progress of sound colonization. Lord Stanley's Colonial Lands Bill will be the assertion, under the sanction pf the Three Estates, of the cardinal principle which was first promulgated by Mr. Wakefild about twelve years ago. The first experiment was imperfectly permitted on autho rity in 1634, by the passing of the South Austra lian Act : the principle is now to be applied gen erally to the whole of the British Colonies in one quarter of the globe. The bill asserts that the appropriation of land must be restricted by the imposition of a sufficient price. The value of ihe measure, in which consists the practical appli cation of this principle, must be considered in connexion with the circumstances of its origin and in its bearing upon the future progress of the syste...

CHINESE AFFAIRS. ' The accounts from the Northern expedition in China un der Sir Henry Pottinger relate a series of successes. We follow the despatches of Sir William Parker to the Go vernor-Genera! of India. The squadron did not leave Amoy till the 5th Septem ber, in consequence of adverse weather; and ou the 6Utnc account Chu&an was chosen as the next poiut of attack in stead of Chinhae.

AMATEUR THEATRICALS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 September 1842

AMATEUR THEATRICALS. The first performance for this season took place on Tuesday evening, the 30th instant. In spite of a reduced force, and delays and misfor tunes, which for a time threatened to paralyze their exertions, the members of the company produced three pieces with a vigour and brillian cy not only surpassing their former exhibitions, but exceeding moet amateur performances we have ever seen. The pieces chosen and repre sented were, ' Raising the Wind,' u The Queer Subject/' and ' Bombastes Furioso.' In (he the first piece, the admirable acting in ' Did dler,' the broad humour of 'Sam,' and the excellent portraiture of ' Miss Durable' by one of ' the sterner sex,' kept the house in a continued roar of laughter, ceasing with the fall of the curtain only to be renewed by the in imitable playing of ' Mattock,' ' Snatch,' and ' Spectre/' in the second piece. The third is too well known to our readers to need any ob servation of ours; suffice it to say, that it wound up the ev...

SUICIDE OF THE RIGHT HON. GEORGE EARL OF MUNSTER, F.R.S. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 September 1842

SUICIDE OF THE RIGHT HON. GEORGE EARL OF MUNSTER, F.R.S. It is our painful duty to record the untimely death of Major-General the Earl of Munster, eldest son of his late Majesty William IV., by the accomplished actress, Mrs. Jordan, — an estimable man, a gallant soldier, and a scholar well versed in oriental languages. The melancholy event took place about half-past eleven o'clock on Sun day night, at No. 13, Belgrave-street, Belgrave square, his town residence, when Earl Munster put a period to his existence by shooting himself through the head with a pistol ; as it appears from the evidence of his medical attendants, given at the inquest, which was held on the following evening, in a fit ©f insanity, the approach of which had been apprehended. When the body of the deceased was viewed by the jury it was lying on the library floor, on the basement story, between the door and the end of the table, where his lord ship usually sat. The face and head were severe* ly and extensively muti...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 September 1842

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1842. In 1836 a Committee of the House of Com mons was appointed to inquire into the disposal of waste lands in British colonies. The most important witness examined was Mr, E. G, Wakefield ; when we 6ay important , we must be understood rather to aliude to the measures and schemes founded on his evidence, than to any real weight to be attached to his answers, as arising irom experience. It is true that in his fifth answer he claims a knowledge of no less than '200 different methods of disposing of waste land/' and, as a sample of this knowledge, i he, in his eighth answer, commences to animad vert on Swan River, in which, as in his subse quent frequent allusions to the Swan River colony, he proved himself totally ignorant of his subject. He was so well and completely refuted in a series of letters published in this colony some time ago, that we have jio occasion to re-diesect hie theories now. We have alluded to this gentleman now only because we can trace t...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Members of the Church of England in Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 September 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Members of the Church of England in Western Australia. Beloved Brethren, — Permit an humble steward of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to draw your attention to a late act of English legislature, which, if connived at by us, may indeed prove ' a heavy blow and great discouragement' to the cause of Christianity. The state has declared, that marriage may be henceforth regarded as a civil contract ; but the Church, at the very commencement of the raar ringe-service, declares, ' that so many as are coupled together otherwise than God's word doth allow, are not joined together by God, neither is their matrimony lawful. The case stands thus : The law of the land will permit you to enter into the marriage by civil contract; but the Church can never be silenced, and she affirms, that though the state may permit this, the word of God instructs us otherwise, and marriage is a religious contract ; therefore do not avail yourselves of the permission here given by the state.

YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 September 1842

YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The annual meeting for the sale and show of jM'ize &toc'k in York, established by the members of ih'is Society, took place on Friday last, and drew together a vast concourse of people from various parts of the colony. For two or three days pre .ceding the fair, the usual monotony of the York road — varied on ordinary occasions only l-y the passing, at long intervals, of a solitary builock team — was relieved by the presence of smart gigs, and gay equestrians, all hastening to the great centre of attraction. The number of fat cattle and wethers sent to the fair for sale was not so large as last year, the farmers complauing that the butchers offer less at the fair for the same animals, than they would, on their own farms; and this was the reason we heard very generally assigned for there being fewer fat things for sale than last year. Altogether nearly .£1,000 worth of stock changed hands ; the following prices were ob tained at auction : — Cows, wit...
