THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 October 1842

WEDNESDAY, OCTOUER 5, 1842. The vessel reported in sight yesterday turns out to be the Fame, from the Cape of Good Hope. We are informed, that she brings Eng lish news down to a late date, as well as some interesting particulars respecting the war in Afghanistan, and the rebellion by the Boers at Port Natal ; but we have not received any news papers in time to give the details in this week's riublication. We are happy however in being able to state, we believe on competent, authority, that Brigadier Sale, whom our last advices had left shut up in Jullalabad, and in daily expecta tion of a siege, has not only been able to keep his position in that town, and defend himself, hut had resumed the offensive with signal suc cess. In fact, as we are informed, the Affghans have suffered defeat in almost every direction, and this without the assistance sent from Eng land, but with the aid only of the reinforcement scut from the Cape and the Isle of France. All the prisoners, as well as the ho...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 29, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 October 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 29, 1842. Edward Hamersley, Esq., was examined be fore the Council as to the disposal of Crown Lands. The Hon. It. W. Nash brought up the address g of the Committee praying his Excellency to bring in a bill to impose a duty on imported grain and flour. The address, which was printed in this journal some time back, was then read by the Clerk. Mr. Nash rose to move that the address be adopted by the Council. He trusted that this question would be viewed by the Council and the public in its true light. It was the habit to make it a party question ; to treat it as if the point at issue were whether the preference should he given to the producer or the consumer ; to argue that the fanner ought to be protected, or that the consumer ought not to be taxed. This was a false view of the case. The object of the corn-laws, of all protecting duties on the necessa ries of life, was the benefit of the consumer, and on that alone he rested his advocacy of the measure....

PROHIBITED MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 October 1842

PROHIBITED MARRIAGES. We extract from a London paper the following report of the concluding debate on Lord Francis TJgerton's motion for leave to bring in a bill to make legal the marriage of a widower with his wife's sister. ' The adjourned debute, in the House of Commons, on J,ord Francis F.izerton's motion fo'r leave to brim; in a bill to amend Lord Lvurihurst's Act of 1635; was opened, on Wednesday, by Mr. Peter Borthwick ; who went over and sinswered the chief objections to the measure; contending that the proposed law was not inconsistent with Scripture ur morality. Mr. Curteis, on the some side, said that where such men as the Archbishop of Dublin and Dr. Pusey were at issue as to the effect of such a measure, it proved, what Sir Robert lull's denied, that there is a doubt about the matter. Mr. Charles Buller, also in support of the motion, ad dressed himself particularly to the disturbance of domestic relations which it was 6aid the bill would create among the middle and low...

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER IX. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 October 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY Of WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER IX. To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   The natural order Santalaceæ contains with us two genera, of which we have interesting species. In my letter on the native fruits, I noticed the Kojonup peach, and I have since observed that the same plant in common to the north. The nut tree of the York district is a species of Santalum; the nuts are sometimes eaten by the settlers, but they have very little flavour; the natives use the nuts for greasing themselves; they appear to contain a large por- tion of a pure vegetable oil, which might perhaps be turned to account in seasons when they are abundant. I have observed a very narrow-leaved species of Santalum among the ironstone hills near the Beaufort River. The Exocarpus, the Van Diemen's Land cherry, belongs to this order; we have several species — the largest and showiest is the Exocarpus Cupressiformis, which appears to be found all over this vast island. Of the nat...

We refer our readers to the first annual report of the registrar of births, marriages and deaths, published in this day's journal. The report is in rtiiiny respects Hie most interesting public docu mriit that has appeared for pome time, and, by explaining lhe legitimate uses and objects of ihe »i!gi*l ration, will probably cause the act to be viewed more lavourably by the public than has been the case hitherto. The act has been misunderstood by very many prisons ; it has been looked upon as interfering with relitrious ceremonies, and has also been confounded with (he ' Act for the solemnization of Matrimony,' passed at Ihe same time. With this feeling it has been said, in a letter lately published in this journal, that 'registration is not baptism,' a truth which is palpable and self evident. But the registration of a birth under the act was never intended to 6upply the place of baptism ; t...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — In the notice of a work, published about twelve months ago in England, entitled ' Letters and notes on the manners, customs, and condition of the North American Indians/' by G. Cat! in, I observe the following extract, which I send, as thinking perhaps that you may agree with roe in its being worth presenting to your readers, for the real utility, which the practice it records, may be of to them in the management of stock of alt descriptions. It has been suggested that this most likely was the art by which the celebrated ' Whisperers' tamed the most vicious horses. I may add also, that in a private letter which I have received, a friend mentions that since Mr. Catlin's book appeared, the experiment bas been tried in England, and has succeeded. Mr. Catfin, after speaking of the hunting of the buffaloes, says, that at the season when the calves are only a few weeks old, they are in the chase separated from their dams, and endeavo...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 October 1842

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. By the Fame, from the Cape of Good Hope, we have received a few English provincial papers down to May 21st, nearly a month later than the news brought by the Simon Taylor. By them we learn of the almost total destruction of the city of Hamburgh by fire on the Gih May luit, by winch awful calamity between 2 and 3,000 houses have been destroyed, and upwards of 150 persons killed. The lobs in public buildings ami the archives of the town, is also very great. A rumour had been set afloat that the fire was caused by the agency of the English, and it ap pears that this feeling was very generally «titer tained amonget the lower orders at Hamburgh. We need hardly inform our readers that this was treated ;«s an infamous calumny by every well thinking person. The whole particulars are of such great length, that it would not be practica ble to transfer them to our pages, but the follow ing extract from the Gloucester Journal of May . 21st gives some of the most important ...

COURT OF REQUESTS. To the Editor of the "Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 October 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' COURT OF REQUESTS. Str, — I perceive from the last ' Gazette' that un additional Court is likely to be established for the recovery of small debts, nnd that the maximum sum named is £5} I believe this to be a mistake as the Court will be extended so at; to embrace causes in which the sum claimed amounts to fen pounds. I very much doubt the policy of this measure ; all who are conversant with the practice in the Civil Court must be aware that very perplexing cases da arise in which the plain tiff demands under ten pounds. When such cases do occur they are tried before a tribunal which we cannot expect to be equalled in the col ony ; if the case be difficult or complicated regu larly bred lawyers and barristers are employed and the case comes to hearing shorn of all irnper* tenenees and extraneous matters. But take one of three cases to the Court of Requests ; it is tried by one — I care not whom — and whoever he be, he must himself acknowledge some l...

AUSTRALIND. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 October 1842

AUSTRALIND. The progress of this settlement continues rapid. Several other town sections have been let at £10, £8, and £5 each, according to situa- tion, and preparations are making for the erection of several houses. The neighbourhood has been visited with a serious flood, and the estuary, as well as the rivers Brunswick, Collie, and Preston, have been higher than on any former period since tha Leschenault district was first settled ; neverthe less the damage done has not been great in this settlement, as the townsite generally is superior to all flood, and only a few occupied allotments on the flats of the Brunswick were inundated. Bunbury also escaped without injury, but we understand that the garden of the Rev. Mr. Wollaston at Picton, on the Preston, has suffered greatly from the depth and force of the stream which flowed over it. The entrance to the inlet, which had been considerably choked by the ac- cumulation of sand thrown up by the recent gales, has been very greatly clea...

EVIDENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 October 1842

EVrBESCE Taken before the Lejislatice Council on Mr. Tanner's motion for en examination of witnesses on the suhjtct of the disposal of Crown Lands in Western Av.itrulia. M MACDERMOTT, Esq., in reply to his Excellency the Governor, stated : — I have been some time in the colony (since the year 1831), aud have had opportunities of judging of the nature and value of Crown lands, and forming a judgment as to the average price at which land may be procured in the colony. I have often considered the subject of the dis posal of lands, and what would be n just maximum price to be placed upon them ; this however would vary accord ing to the purposes to which the land was to be appro priated — i. e., whether to pastoral or agricultural purposes. I trouM, for instance, class lands under two hi'»ds- and consequently the price of each. I have never known uuy system so perfect as tlie one disallowed by her Majesty's government — that of die.po«iug of lands in sections of ltiO acres, with the righ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 October 1842

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1842. We this week commence publishing the evidence taken before the Legislative Council on the. subject of the disposal of Crown lands. It ?will run through three or four numbers, as it is necessary to give the questions, as well as the answers, at length, in order that the full effect of the inquiry may be understood ; for it must be remembered that the replies given are not so much the opinions of the several parties, ex pressed in a general way, as they ore particular answers to particular questions. Probably, if the question were put in a different wav, the re l-)y ihfiTto \fould also be different; it is'therefore c?f ehtial to see precisely what was the question in each particular case. The evidence taken has been somewhat con tradictory on more than one important point, especially as to the price that might profitably be given for land for agricultural purposes; one witness giving it as his opinion that such land, in small blocks, and near markets, is w...
