CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 November 1840

? CORRESPONDENCE. ? 0030 ? To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Si a — I read with great surprise an explanation in your papor, of the reasons why the ' CJiarlotte' was not chart ered. I really thought, Sir, that however it may sound in novels and poetry, yet. we old colonists should know the world better tlmu to attribute to Mr. Mangles the. fully «*' sacrificing his interest to his love Tor the pretty baby 'col- ony Swan River. Mr. Mangles like every one else, not excepting yourself and your correspondent, did it becuusu he hoped to make money of it. That he did it so shabbily as to lender it less profitable, even to himself, than it migh t have been, may be true j but in the name of common sensu are we strong- enough to procluim to the wurtd that we will allow no ship owner to interfere with Mr. Mangles'; -and to post a notice over Arthurs lleuil '? none but jfr. Mangles need apply.' No, let the Mercantile folks if they hear ol' us at ali, hear that they must race in time, aud compet...

We believe it. is not generally known thai (he Public Offices close on Saturdays earlier than otlur days, viz: at 12 o'clock. We mention this as it may prevent disappointment to our Country readers who may have business thereat. WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, 11th. 1840. Some very interesting documents on the sub ject of the resumption by the Crown of unimprov ed grants in this eoleny have been lately publish ed in the Perth Gazette, and it is somewhat cu rious that the facts contained theiein, should not Qtofe sooner transpired. The muin point established seems to be that the old terms of 5th, December 1828 were not re scinded by the regulations issued in January and February 1629, and thus the opinions of Mr. 'Vfokefieid and of the law officers of the Crown are conclusive against the resumption of grants made before the end of the year 1829, within a less period than 21 years, and it is much to be regretted that 6o small a portion of our brother colonists are likely to profit by the benefit ...

YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 November 1840

YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The York Agricultural Society held its first Annual Meet- ing on Wednesday last which was most numerously and respectably attended ; the occasion drew together a vast concourse of people who flocked from all parts of the coun- try ; the usually quiet town of York was aroused by the appearance of tandems, gigs, and other vehicles, and the place presented rather the appearance of an English Fair than an Agricultural show in the Australian wilderness. A good deal of business was transacted at the Fair, and much money changed hands; Messrs. Samson, and Messrs. Agett and Stokes, sold stock of various kinds to the amount of about £2,500, besides which several private sales were effected. The following prices were realised at Auction — Horses and Mares from £50 to £80 Cows £25 to £34, Cow and Calf £34, 2 years old heifer £24, Ewes £4 6 0, to £4 12 0, and a few lots of Ewe culls at about £2 12 6 each. It will be seen that these prices are far lower than were &...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, 18th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 November 1840

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, I8th. 1640. We understand that a petition to the Govern or in' Council is in course of signature on the sub ject of the boundary lines on the Avon ; we have not yet seen the petition, but we learn thct it is to the effect that the petitioners view with alarm the intention on the part of the government of resurveying the bose line, and of altering the boundary marks at present thereon, ana the prayer is that the present marks, by which the settlers have so long been guided may be con firmed and recognized by government. As far as we can learn, the object of the pe titioners is to have this very important question of boundaries settled, before any inaccuracies are discovered in the present line; it is urged that so long as the different measurements are not prov ed to be incorrect, the several holders of land will consent to the boundaries that have been severally assigned to them, but when once it is declared that errors do exist, great difficulty will be found in...

COltR ESPONDEXCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir — There have been many projects for the introduc- tion of labour, the whole of which have I believe, proved abortive; I beg to lay before you one for the economising   that we already possess .I propose that the Government allow the settler as a boon the option of paying the Is   Gd. per acre in cash, in lieu of laying it out on the land for location duties, whereby a great many labourers now employed in making so called permanent or other im- provements, to be abandoned perhaps as soon as the pur- pose be gaincd, might be reserved for profitable employment. Allow me also to suggest that the cash so received in lieu of improvements might be laid out in foreign silver coin which is sometimes obtainable here at a very low price, from which might be cast a statue of Folly personified to be plac- ed on Arthurs head or Mount Bakewell, or sone conspicu- ous hill, — or better still, in front of the government ...

The following Correspondence has lately taken place be tween the Local Government and W. B. Andrews Esq. Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth, October 3rd, 1840.

At the time of fixing a per centage for the benefit deriv ed from live 6tock, it was not intended that the usual per manent improvements were to be superseded or dispensed with, but that in addition a certain allowance should be made in consideration of the Improvements effected through the means of the stock ; whereas by your schedule it appears that a very small proportion of the improvements are of a permanent nature, and that a very large proportion ap pears to the credit of benefit from live stock. And the practice of the Local Government has been to require that two thirds of the sum should be expended in permanent improvements, aud that one third o...
