THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 November 1842

f. ' ? ' ' . . ?' ... WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1842. The Legislative Council deserves well of the colony for the spirited manner in which it is prosecuting the inquiry into the disposal of Crown lands ; the last and by far the most im portant business of the laborious session which is now about to close. It is said by some, who argue from the acknowledged indifference that is «:ver shown to colonial wants and wishes when they are in opposition to the supreme authority at home, that the labours of the Council in this par ticular will have no good result, and that the .Secretary of State will continue in the practice of ihe present pernicious system, just as if no re monstrance had been made against it. There is, unfortunately, but too strong grounds for this opinion in the mysterious administration of the arbitrary authority of the Colonial Office, an un defined and intangible influence being there suI«tUule-l irj lieu of tlie open responsibility of the nominal head of the Colonial de...

EXAMINATION OF THE NATIVE CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 November 1842

EXAMINATION OF THE NATIVE CHILDREN A very interesting examination of the children in the Native Day and Sunday school in Perth, took place or Wednesday last in the Wesleyan Chapel ; on which occasion a very high treat was afforded to those who feel an interest in what is indeed the common object of all our sym pathies viz., the improvement of the Aborigines. The proficiency displayed by the children in reading, writing, aud spelling, was really surpris ing, ami does !;. Suite credit to the assuJclly of the Wesleyan ^Missionary, as writ as to their more immediate instructor Air. F. Armstrong. Among the lessons was the 5th chapter of St. John, aud not only was the chapter rend l-y the children with great accuracy and facility, but they were afterwards questioned as to its conlcnts by Mr. Sniithii'S, and the replies given sufficiently proved their knowledge of the general subjects comprised within the chapter, and their familiar acquaintance with what they had been reading.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, November 18th, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 November 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, November 18*/i, 1842. In consequence of the indisposition of his Ex cellency the Governor, the Hon* the Colonial Secretary presided at the meeting, and moved the order of the day, which was for the consider ation of the several resolutions on the subject of the disposal of Crown lands, of which the lion. R. W. Nash had given notice. Mr. Nash rose and stated his readiness at once to proceed with his motion if the Council should think fit lo call upon him ; at the same time he would suggest the propriety of postponing the consideration of the question in consequence of the absence of the Governor. He knew that his Excellency very much wished to be present during the discussion, and indeed it was, in many respects, adviscable that he should. He left it for the Council to say whether he should proceed or not. The Council was unanimously in favour of the postponement, and the question was accordingly postponed until the 24th instant, to which day the Council adjourne...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — Allow me through the medium of your paper to represent (he ir.convenicnce that tlie in habitants of this district are subjected to from the want ot'a regular conveyance of letters bei ween it and Perth. A mail starts once a fortnight from Perth to Australiud and Bunbury, but there it sfons. and the onlv means of obtaining intelligence of what passes in the metropolis is by the very uncertain mode of employing natives, who are engaged, (should there be any in the set tlement) to proceed once a fortnight to Les chenault for the mail bag for this place ; so that not unfwquently a month and even a longer lapse of time passes before our friends in Perth can hear anything about us, lor should the post man, as is very often the case, have started prior to the native's arrival, the letters remain in the Post-office until the fortnight afterwards, when the mail reappears in Bunbury. Surely when the communication is so regular and frequ...

HINTS TO SHEEP-FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 November 1842

HINTS TO SHEEP-FARMERS. The following remarks, which are well worthy of the attention of sheep-farmers, have been sent to us by a correspondent : — '' The value of our flocks having recently suffered a great depreciation, while no corre sponding reduction has taken place in the charge of maintaining1 them, it is very necessary that we should devise some means whereby so important a pursuit as sheep-farming may still afford suffi cient remuneration for the investment of capital. It appears to me that the weight of our fleeces might be very much increased, as well as the length of staple, by making a careful and judi cious selection of rams, particularly from those of Lord Western's Anglo-Merino breed, of which I believe we now possess considerable numbers; and this is precisely the description of wool which is most sought for in the English markets. It bus been asserted on good authority, that the wools of Western Australia have never yet rea lised the prices obtained for those of th...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 November 1842

CORRES PONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr. Editor, — The situation of the town of Perth is justly admired as combining to the ut most possible extent the advantage of beautiful prospect ; eminently pure crystalline atmosphere, as facing the sea-breeze wafted to it over the noble surfaces of Perth and Melville Waters ; an unlimited supply of excellent water; and abundance of the richest garden-lands, sufficient in fact to supply London itself with fruit and vegetables in profusion ; while these again, with j (he fine farms on the Swan, should render milk, ; butter, eggs, poultry, &c, &c, as cheap as in Ireland itself. Yet, after all this has been con tinued twelve year?, Perth is the worst supplied I town of its size in Australasia. And why ? simply, Mr. Editor, because there is no estab lished market. Look at Australind ! a place scarcely yet more than marked on the ground ; and yet, with the usual wisdom and indefatigable activity of the Chief Commission...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 November 1842

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1842. We have already expressed our opinion of the great importance of the inquiry at present being instituted by the Legislative Council into the system of disposal of Crown lands ; and have also endeavoured to awaken our readers to the necessity of so carrying on, and carrying out, this demonstration of opinion, as to cum pel at tention from those high functionaries in the Mo ther country who are but too apt to follow the example of the unjust judge and listen only in proportion to the importunity of the speaker. The utility of the inquiry depends on three points : 1st, That the whole question, and not merely a part, be grappled with and investigated : 2nd, That the resolutions of the Council be systematically and argumentatively arranged and connected into one chain ; giving, not merelv opinions, but reasons: 3rdly, That when the Council shall have done its work, and transmitted its sentiments through the Governor to the Home Government, the colony should ...
