THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
WKDNESMY, SEPTEMBER 28, 18*2. In another part of our journal will be found an extract from Professor Meri vale's lectures on Colonization, under the head of ' judgment upon the Waken1 eld system of colonising' — that is to say, Mr. Meri vale's own judgment upon this subtile and much suspected system. We are not now going to enter upon the mysteries of the *' sufficient price,' but shall content ourselves with making a few general remarks on the judg ment recorded by the Professor. And first let us observe, that we mentioned last week, as among future probabilities, that the students in the English universities would, before very long, be instructed in the principles of colonization as an art. Such a course of study has already commenced, for the extract to which we have called attention is part of the published lectures of Mr. Merivale, delivered before the University ol' Oxford during the three years last past. Mr. Merivale begins by saying, 'let us divest it' (the Wakefield theory...
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 22,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Feptember 22, 1842. The order of the day was for the second read ing of the insolvent debtor's bill, adjourned from -last meeting. His Excellency observed, that the ))iJl had been adjourned in consequence of some doubts as to the expediency of making the bill embrace other points in the law of debtor and creditor than it at present sought to provide for. It was his opinion, and that of the law officers, that to extend the bill to these points would be extremely difficult, if not absolutely impractica ble, and he would recommend the Council to accept of the principle of the present bill, which had for its object to assist honest debtors, and to » enable them to make a settlement with their cre l clitors, and which was certainly an improvement f on the existing law. W. II. Mackie, Esq., proposed a variety of amendments, not affecting the principle ot the bill, but yet altering materially the mode of pro ceeding under it; the following are the most important: — The...
COLONIAL WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
COLONIAL WOOL. We copy from the Sydney Herald the follow ing letter on the method of shearing and assorting wool. It appears to us to contain several hints which will be of value to our settlers in the pre sent shearing time : — ' In the present time, when the scarcity of money is such that settlers aud merchant* are both trying their utmost to scrape together a hundred pounds, a few sug gestions whereby the country could obtain £50,01X1 clear profit, or an advance of two-pence per pound on the next clip, would not be out of place ; and I am certain that Ehould the following advice be adopted by the woolgrow ers, us a body, the account sales of our colonial produce would give a balance of more than that sum in our fuvour. Colonial wool in England has become an object of much interest, and there ore many more manufacturers who would use it, but at present will have nothing to do with it, on account of the very careless manner in which it is got up. The profits, therefore, that the de...
JUDGMENT UPON THE WAKEFIELD SYSTEM OF COLONIZING. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
JUDGMENT UPON THE WAKEFIELD SYSTEM OF COLONIZING. I have now gone through the principal features of the modern scheme of systematic colonization. Let us divest it of the too exact form in which it has been presented by some of its supporters ; let us dismiss all idea of a precise proportion between land, labour, and capital, an exclusive employ ment of the land-fund on emigration, and of a mathematically ' sufficient price ; let us con sider its principles as confined to the sale of land at as high prices as can reasonably be obtained, and the strict devotion of the fund to a few essen tials purposes, among which the supply of labour holds the principal place ; let us consider it, moreover, as chiefly applicable only to colonies raising large quantities of exportable produce, and perhaps also to other colonies so distant from the mother country that the stream of emigration needs to be artificially directed to them ; let us subject the theory to all the qualifications which I have s...
SLAVE-DEPOT AT BALTIMORE [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
SLAVE-DEPOT AT BALTIMORE The American slave-trade is carried on in the most open manner in this city. We paid a visit to i he establishment of an extensive slave-dealer, u large new building in one of the principal streets. The proprietor received us with great courtesy, and permitted us to inspect the premises. Cleanliness and order were everywhere visible ; and, might we judge from the specimens of food bbown us, the animal wants of the slaves are not in jji cted. There were only five or six Negroes in slock, but llic jTcptielor told us he had some tiuic. ilncc or km hui.dml their, and had ship ped off a cargo to New Orleans n few days before. That city is the market where the highest price is generally obtained for them. The premises are strongly secured with bolts and bars, and the rooms in which the Negroes are confined sur round an open court-yard, where they are per 1 mitted to take the eir. We were accompanied and kindly introduced by an individual who has often been engaged...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. MR. MACARTHUR AND THE FINE WOOL OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
m iscelLaneous extracts. MR. MAC ARTHUR AND THE FINE WOOL OF AUSTRALIA. ???i (By Mr. P. Cunningham. ) Minerva and Ceres hud temples erected to them fora supposed introduction of the olive and hurley cultivation into CJioece; and had the* heathen mythology now existed, Arkwright and Watt might have shared the same honours. In this we only see the high estimation in which men were held who benefited their fellow mortal* by useful introductions, which we of the present day equally reverp, although in a different way. Among these may justly be classed the late John Macarlhur, the originator of Colonial Fine W ool husbandry, aud the practical follower of it up, in spite of years of ridicule or obloquy, until his favourite scheme was triumphant, an-l he had the pleasure of seeing Australia, through his ex ertions, recognised as the most profitable colony ever planted by England. liis prophetic an nouncement lo the woollen manufacturing deputa tion lor consulting the Ministry relative to t...
To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
To the Julitnr of (he ' Inquirer' Sin, — In addition to the most seasonable re- 1 marks of my brother clergyman Mr. King on ilie subject of marriage, \ would wish to say a few words, if you can find room for them in vour columns, to the members of our Church on ?registration. The Registration Act was made not for mem bers of tin* Church of England, but for Dissent ors from her communion. It is just ami right lhat they, as well as ourselves, shou'd have a legal registry, without violating scruples of con science. It was necessary, however, that such an act should embrace the whole population. Yet churchmen should be reminded, that by the 70th canon, ' ministers are still required to keep a register of christenings, weddings, and burials;' and that although they arc bound to conform to the provisions of the act, this new registration has no reference whatever to the ordinances of the Chunk. If a marriage be entered in the Sub-Registrar's book only, and not also in that of the Clergyma...
AGRICULTURAL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 September 1842
. AGRICULTURAL HINTS. We have been favoured with some observations containing some useful information on several subjects connected with agriculture. The writer is Mr. Peter Cunningham, advantageously known to many of our readers as the author of 'Two years in New South Wales,' and 'Hints for Australian Emigrants,' &c, &c, who has devoted much time and attention to agriculture with reference more especially to the soil and climate of Australia. We are indebted for the following ' hints' to the kindness of a gentleman in this colony, to whom they were sent by the author. Maize Planting. — In Texas, a roller with sharp spikes lit equal distances is passed over the land, the seeds men dropping a grain into each hole and covering it with a shuffle of his foot. Here there is not only a saving of la bour, particularly in filling, but there is a greater certainty of crop from inch plant having its own equally allotted space to subsist upon, which is not the case when the se...

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER VIII. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." &nbsp; The natural orders Aroideæ: and Typh? of Jussieu, united by Dr. Brown, contain, in the tropical parts of Australia, several interesting plants; but the only plant which I have ob- served which requires notice with us, is the plant which Mr. Brown gives as the Typha Angusti- folia of Linneus, but with a mark of doubt. This plant is an important one to the natives, as it furnishes them, at one season of the year, with a large portion of their food. When the white men first settled in this colony, the natives of the Canning, Upper Swan, Lower Swan, and Perth districts, were in the habit of meeting annually in the autumn, in the vicinity of a swamp on Gvrve Farm, now the property of Mr. John Hanley ; these meetings lasted for several days, and I observed that on these occasions they principally fed upon the roots of the Typha, which they call yandyait. They strip off the oute...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 October 1842
MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. The following curious speculation with regard to the ' Man v.iili the Iron Mask' is taken from a book lately published in London under ilie title of ' MaMfli* Timothy's Book-case.' A new claimant is lure brought forward in the per son of the Greek Patriarch, of whoso pretensions we leave our readers to judge. The weight of authority supports the opinion that this celebrat ed captive was an envoy from the Duke of Mantua : — 'THE MAN OF THE IRON MASK. ' The truths developed by uo other narrative which Sir Edmund Mortimer perused through the agency of his Book-Case, produced so strange an effect upon him as this. Here was one of the most extraordinary mysteries of his tory suddenly cleared up before him ; and that secret — to examine which, and then remain in doubt, had occupied so much valuable time on the part of so many learned men — was now no longer enveloped iu darkness. The subject of the preceding tale naturally led our hero's ideas into a train of thoug...
THE SUPPRESSIONS IN PEPYS' DIARY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 October 1842
THE SUPPRESSIONS IN FEPYS' DIA.RY. ' Every curious passage in that extraordinary publica tion came on the reader with double effect, from an intimation given by the editor that it had been found ' absolutely necessary' to make numerous curtailments. He hung out no ' lights,' as Madame Dacier calls them. There were no stars, or other typographical symbols, in dicating the passages omitted. The reader therefore con cluded, that, rich in suggestion as the publication was, it had ' riches fineless' concealed. Every court anecdote was thought to contain more than it told ; and every female ac quaintance of the poor author, unless he expressed to the contrary, supposed to be no better than she should be. We seemed on the borders of hearing, every instant, that all the maids of honour had sent for the doctor on one and the same evening ; or that the court had had a hall in their nightgowns ; or that the beds there lutd been half burnt (for Lady Ca6tlemaine once threatened to fire White hal...
