THE ENGLISH AND FRENCH FLEETS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 November 1842

THE ENGLISH AND FRENCH FLEETS. (From Napier's Mediterranean excursions.) 'The general idea of the British naval officers was that of the French fleet being in high order and a perfect state of discipline ; and although I , am convinced that not a single British tar, for a moment, entertained a doubt of being able to thrash Johnny Crapaud, if placed yard arm to yard arm, it was nevertheless thought the job might be attended with some little trouble. How ever, the best feeling and the greatest state of cordiality subsisted between the two fleets. Ad miral Lalande was a handsome military looking man, apparently between 45 and 50, of the most gentlemanly address and manners; and the trench officers we generally found ' bons enfans' : — the ' brusquerie' of the sailor amalgamating well with the national ' politesse.' They were frequent guests on board the Powerful, whose skipper discovered amongst them several old an tagonists during the last war, which tended of course, to cement a grea...

SITTINGS OF THE INQUISITION. FIRST NIGHT. [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 November 1842

SITTINGS OF THK INQUISITION. FIRST .MIGHT.. [Continued.] Sir Patrick. — It is probable that Mr. Drummond and Mr. Gilbert in their journey to the Sound will pass over a considerable e: tent of unexplored country. / Grand Inq. — There will be published in the next Inquirer a letter from M r. Henry Landor, giving an account of a very large tract of excel lent laud, well-watered and abounding with herbage, which he has lately passed over, to the eastward of the road between York and Albany. In time, the false impression which has gone abroad of our possessing a very limited extent of available land, must be done away with, if the settlers only continue to publish the results of their discoveries. Sir Pat.— Although in point of fact we have already an immense quantity more land than our present population requires, it must prove ulti mately advantageous to make known our abun dance, 6ince if there be only good land to begin with, successive tides of immigrants are alone wanting to oversp...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2[?]d, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 November 1842

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd, 1842. The most important business now before the Council, indeed we may say the most important of the whole session, is the consideration of the evidence taken on the subject of the disposal of Crown lands. The result has not been altoge- ther such as we anticipated, but it is not without its use ; it now remains for the CounciI to im- prove upon it by coming to such a resolution as shall put the entire question, as well as the op-i nion of each individual member, in some definite and tangible shape. A committee has already been appointed to examine into the evidence, and report upon it, and it depends entirely upon such report, and upon the consequent vote of the Council, whether the effect to be produced on the home government by the inquiry will be salutary or otherwise. The object has been to induce a change in the Land Regulations, both with regard to the minimum price, and to the minimum quantity which the Crown consents to sell ; and however contradic...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 November 1842

WEDNESDAY', NOVEMBER 9, 1842. Ak error of some importance found its way into om* last week's report of the evidence taken on the subject of the disposal of Crown Lands. The evidence in that report, attributed to ' W. B. Andrews, Esq.,' was given in fact by E. Kamcrslcy, Esq. ; lor the former name, there fore, read the latter. We shall feel obliged if our subscribers will take ihe trouble of making the necessary conrciion, each one in his own copy, beiore sending it away. Our report of the highly important debate on ?.f r. Leake's amendment to the ♦« Bill to extend the remedies of creditors against the property of debtors,' has extended to such a length as to leave us but scanty room for our ordinary lead ing matter.

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 November 1842

To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   SIR, — There never is any piece of information recorded in the Inquirer, that is likely to afford pleasure or satis- faction to the community at large, but it is sure to be at- tacked, with every appearance of bitterness, in the next number of the Perth Gazette. No matter however little likely it may seem to afford grounds for offence, somthing offensive is sure to be discovered in it; and some sagacious writer, dipping his pen in the diluted venom which is kept on hand in the printing-office of that paper, forthwith proceeds (wheezing with eagerness and malice) to attack that which was communicated to the public in pure friend- liness and good-will. Far be it from me to say anything that might be sup- posed to reflect personally upon the respectable proprietor of the Perth Gazette, hut against the writing which ap-   pears in the columns of his unfortunate journal I must strongly protest. Sometimes, I regret to say, the r...

ANNUAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 November 1842

ANNUAL KEPORT. The ladies of fhe Association auxiliary to the Colonial Church Society, in presmtintr their eviction for the second year, endine October 1842, amounting to 44!. 6s. 10d., have to regret ihat it falls so far short of that of the preceding our, viz., 721. 126. ; a»«i that, consequently, they cannot rejoice in this evidence of an increasing interest in the objects of the Society. A small proportion of this de ficiency may be noticed in the donations, which are not again to be expected ; but we may trust that those who now contribute are sincerely desirous to support the insti tution as established in the colony for the ad*ancfinient of true religion, and the extension of the doctrines and prin ciples ot our purely Spiritual Church ; when no other efforts were made for sending out the additional minister* co greatly needed for our incrrased and dispersing popula tion.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 November 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Dear Sir, — Long ere this I fancied I per ceived very great room for stiictures upon the pre sent system of regulating the funds at the disposal of the Road Trust. Nothing could ha\e been butter calculated to shew up the absurd system of voting money for the public roads than the arti cle in your paper of October 10th, in reply to your correspondent ' Tuart'. In that article ' Tuart' and his friends to the southward are invited, nay, warned, to attend quarterly meetings in Perth, to enable them to get even the most scanty help from the Road Trust. The districtof Pluntuganet would be indeed neglected if the persons possess ing property in and about K. G. Sound were obliged quarterly to repair to Perth in order to get even a trifling improvement effected upon their highways. The representatives of Augusta I fear would hardly find themselves in the majo rity on a division of the whole Trust, so that for them to attempt to carry a questi...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 November 1842

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER I6, 1842. Such of our readers as choose to turn to the Perth Gazette of last week, will find that some very silly personage has been hired to puff off the merits of that " respectable journal," and to point out deserts which none in this colony have hitherto had the sense or discernment to discover. We are not now to learn of the vanity of men ! especially of those men who, for their sins, are permitted to torture the intellects of the public in their uncouth strainings after literary renown; but although fully aware of the ridiculous extent to which conceit and ignorance will lead a man, we were not prepared for the extraordinary display of both which the Gazette exhibits in parading its soi-disant " respectability" before the public, and in speaking of the honourable (!) mention that has been made of it in foreign journals. The word " respectable" is one of very doubtful mean- ing : a person may be very " respectable," and yet have but a small share of the card...
