THE LANDS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 September 1842

THE LANDS BjLL. (Prom the '« Colonial Gazette.') The cuccess of Lord Stanley's bill for disposing of waste land in Australia and New 'Zealand depends upon two conditions. We have hailed the measure as conveying the first legislative assertion of a great principle— that the ap propriation of land must be restricted by the imposition of a sufficient price; and we believe that the practical appli cation of such a principle to the whole of a large group of colonies would be attended with the very best results. But the second condition to the measure, it in to be feared, may impede that practical application : only a part of the fund accruing from the sale of land is lo be devoted to the cost of emigration. The objections to such a plan have been repeatedly pointed out; and nowhere more carefully, though concisely, than in the last declaration of Mr. Wakofirlti's re vised and moat matured opinions — ' Jt is obvior*, v!int as the aim of a price is to occasion a / due proportion between la...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 September 1842

WEDNESDAY, SEVTIiMBER 14, 1842. In large comnmuiiies events which are not of a [uiljlie uutiux iiav« no interest except for the few who a--: :cin;»;i;it««ly uffrcLd by them. But it is not £??-? in - '-;im!l societies. Among these, private calamities become, not uncommonly, the subject of public sympathy; and the sorrows which proslrats and overwhelm individuals flow even up to the hearts of those who are not doomed to endure the full violence of the tor rent. Conscious that many of our readers are filled with feelings similar to our own, we hesitate not. to plead this week inability to con tinue our labours as we had wished, and have in vain attempted . The melancholy and awful occurrence which has excited a lively sorrow in the breasts even of those unacquainted with the parties, has occupied too much of our thoughts to permit us to turn as usual to the considera tion of political topics. It is not often that we appeal to the indulgence of our readers, but this week we do so confid...

THE DUTIES OF A SHEPHERD IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 September 1842

THE DUTIES OF A SHEPHERD tN NEW SOUTH WALES. (From the ' Colonial Gazette') The subjoined extract from .the report of the Immigration Committee of the New South Wales Council, fully explains how the shepherds of that colony ctyn he selected from a very miscel laneous class of immigrants. It bears out the statement of o-ur able correspondent Mr. Cun ningham, who said that the regularty-educated ?hepherds of this country are not by any means the only class suited to the purpose : — ' The duties of a shepherd in New South Wales are exceedingly simple. A flock usually consists of from 400 to 500 ewes, or from GOO to 1,000 dry sheep ; three flocks being folded at one station. The bheuherd is required to take his sheep from the iold in the morning not later than an hour alter sunrise ; to keep sight of them on the pastures throughout the day, and to bring them back at sunset lo the fold. They are then counted over, and left in charge of the night watchman ; whose duty it is to take care o...

The newly-married couple were on their way to York, and stopped at the Half-way-house, where, painful to say, Mrs. Crichton was at- tacked with inflammation of the brain, which   terminated her mortal career in the course of   a few hours.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 8,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 September 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 8, 184*2. The order of the day was for the first reading of the insolvent debtors' bill, and the Council went into cammittee upon several amendments. A long discussion took place as to the propriety of enacting a compulsory insolvency. Objection was taken that as the bill stood, nothing could be done except at the option of the debtor, and it was suggested that the act should allow a creditor to compel a declaration of insolvency on the part of his debtor. This was opposed by the Advo cate-General, as foreign to the purpose of the bill, which only sought to remedy the evil aris ing from injurious sales. He thought that the coloHy was not ripe at present for any legislation on such a complicated subject as that of a law against fraudulent debtor*, but if the Council thought otherwise, they could suggest the intro duction of a bill for the purpose; but such a bill would be widely different from the one now be fore them, and the first thing necessary woul...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of tU ' Inquirer' Mr dear Editor, — My modesty was so completely put out of countenance by your com pliments, that she has scarcely yet recovered from that amiable confusion into which she was thrown by them. I am not going to invite another volley by pretending to question the judgment of a man of so much discrimination, but I must venture to remind you that, although I know you were far from meaning to be severe, there is no satire so biting as undeserved praise, I regret, however, that you did not deliver to the public one or two of those morsels of eloquence that fell from me on the occasion to which you refer. It is to the whole public that Colonicus owes an apology for having thrust himself for ward in so conspicuous a light. Moreover he wished to make more generally known his apolo gy to individuals. Ih the freedom of his censures he has doubtless awakened some personal ill feelings ; and he wished to assure all that these feelings were not recip...

NOTICE OF NEW BOOKS. A Letter addressed to the Right Hon. Lord Stanley on the pasturage of th-e waste lands of the Croirn in the Australian colonies, with reference to a recent regulation of Governor Hat* in Western Australia. By F. J. Bid dulph, Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Lon don : 1842. Thk above i? the title of a clever little pamphlet which has hiU.ly been sent to us by a friend. It is curious 10 observe a student of ' Alma Mater,' leaving; his severer, and doubtless more pleasing studios, to ponder for awhile on the effects ofn\ lurid regulation in this remote part of the world ; and we t-*ke it to be a sign of the times — of the emigrating times — of the times when the minds of men of all grades and characters are drawn to the consideration of colonies and of coloniz ation — that the merits oione of our local questions should be discussed in the learned recesses of Cambridge University. We repeat that a notice on such a subject from such a quarter is another convincing proof...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 September 1842

WEDN K!?IM Y, SEI'TKMBKR 21 , 1842. The sitting of the Legislative Council on Thursday last was altogether occupied by (he examination of witnesses on the price of Crown lands. We hhall give the evidence in detail when the examination* are completed. We loan i that the bill, at present under the ?roneideration of the Legislative Council, for th-* relief of insolvent debtors not in custody, does not meet with the approbation of the merchants ?and traders of the colony. And ihis generally on th« ground tlutt it does not give sufficient fecurity to the creditor, who still remains as far fro.u relief aa ever in all cases except where the debtor himself seeks the benefit of the act. It is argued by many that the declaration of insolvency necessary to bring n debtor within the operation of the act should hot be entirely left to die option of the debtor himself, but should be in some sort compulsory; in (act, that power should be given .to u creditor to compel his debtor to resort to the a...

LETTER No. 11 [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 September 1842

LETTER No. II FROM THE ' INFORMATION COMMITTEE*' AP POINTED BY THE 'VINEYARD SOCIETY.' Tim Committee are desirous of calling the at tention of the colonists especially to the first prun ing, of the cuttings planted this season; upon which may be said to depend both the health and beauty of form of the future plant; and which they regret to observe has been hitherto almost entirely neglected. To understand the proper system fully, it is to be borne constantly in miisd, thaj; the appearance in 1845 of the pruned vine which was a cutting in 1842, should be a single stem, near the upper end of which should be 2 or 3 buds : but until tho summer of 1845 no side branches or spurs should be permitted, we do not say to remain, but to grow. The shoot of each year forms, so far as it is allowed to remain, the stem of the next. The size of the stem is produced by the quantity of nourishment it derives from the roots y the healtli of the stem depends on the quantity of sap driven through it, ena...

? Middle Island used sometimes to be called South Island ; but since the discovery of Foveaux Strait, it has been celled Middle, to distinguish it from its Southernmost appendage, Stewart's Island. Among his many vagaries, Captein Hobson has given to the three islands the names of 'New Ulster,' 'New Muneter,' and 'New Lein6ter,'— a bad set, with no UByful analogy of origin ; adding to the tiresome list of Colonial names begimiing with ' New,' ami likely to clash with the ' New Ireland' already laid down In Poly nesia. Native names constitute a good basis for the vocabulary of our extending geography. Pobkamv would be a very fit appellative for -ii«irtie Islund ; and the two other divisions of the groupe might also be made, as Ijri'.ish posit'tsWrs, to commemorate their early pnple in their Dimes.

WHAT DOES GOVERNMENT MEAN TO DO WITH NEW ZEALAND? [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 September 1842

WHAT tQLS GOVERNMENT MEAN TO CO WITH i NEW ZEALAND? (From the Co! nml Gazette.) The second regular colony of New Zealand — Nelaon — hns actually boon founded: and inte'li^nce has been received of its beginning the business of life under excellent aus pices, on the shores of a commodious harbour in Blind Buy, on the Northern coast of the Middle Island.* Although the situ selected is good, it is not the one which 8 pci fectly free choice would have pointed out. The reason wl.y it was delected is one which may very probably turn out to ba of little practical importance as regards tUe mere pljc'ui).' of the settlement, but it is of tjreat importance in other respects. To comprehend that reason thoroughly, a little nt inspection is needed. New Zealand has been in process of an unauthorised colonization for a number of years ; and in that way a set ti ?men» of some size grew up at the Bay of Islands, on the ^ortli-eiiou-rn shore of the North Island.

A FEW MORE MISTAKES ABOUT COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 September 1842

A FEW MORE MISTAKES ABOUT COLONIZATION. (From the ' Colonial Gazette.') Nothing gives such an air of probability to the late ruinoun&espectiug a government scheme of emigration, us the flurry which they have created among the Opposition, and the efforts made at once to deny their truth nnd decry the measure. One of the eleven st of these decriers took the field in last Sunday's Examiner. His objections evince more knowledge, though u»t of an accurate kind, and are placed in a more tangible form than 6ome with which we have dealt ; and on that account it is more seti* factory to treat them. We tuke them in the order in which they stand. The first is, that as the population of Great Britain in creases at the rate of 230,000 a year, were that number transhipped yearly at u cost of 10/. a head, it would leave us 'just as we were — neither better nor worse.' ' Let us therefore add some five per cent to this, which will give near 100,000 persons. [This calculation is not very clea...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   My DEAR SIR, — As one of the Committee for making known the natural advantages and re- sources of our colony, I send you a few extracts from a journal of observations which I made in a journey to the north in company with Mr. Gilbert, the ornithologist. My sons had heard from the natives that a considerable river and lakes of fresh water were to be found about two days' journey to the north of their station on the Moore River, and in company with Captain Scully, the Government Resident of this district, they determined to explore the country in that direction. Mr. Phillips and some other gentle- men, who were to be of the party, as well as Mr. Gilbert and myself, arrived at the station too   late; I shall therefore principally confine my observations to Mr. Gilbert's transactions and my own. We left Hawthornden on the 22d Aug., and slept at the residence of Captain Scully, who had set out some days before t...
