THE CONTEMPORARY PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 November 1842

THE CONTEMPORARY PRESS. We need not say that we are always delighted when we can extract either information or amuse ment from the columns of our intelligent con temporary the Perth Gazette. Long study and indefatigable assiduity have made us so thorough ly acquainted with the style and phraseology of that journal, that we feel ourselves tolerably competent to act as interpreters to the public of hose numerous passages which weekly puzzle the brains of readers less laborious than ourselves. Brevity,, which is the soul of wit, sometimes causes the writings of the most celebrated au thors to be a little obscure ; but the reader docs not venture to suppose that because he cannot understand the author's meaning, there really was never anything meant. On the contrary, when he finds 'his ingenuity set at deliance by a passage that looks as dark and unfathomable as the Dead Sea, he lays the book down, applies the forefinger of his dexter hand to his distracted brow, and calling up an expre...

To the T. '.'?'? of the ' Inquirer.' ]\f n. Editoii, — I have for some time past, on every spare opportunity, such us while shaving, &c, &c, edified myself by militating on tlu« strange ineonsistenciv s of your conduct and cha racter. First, what brought you here? second, what keeps you here? but, above all, what made you a Swan River editor ! The fuel is, that you seem to have, as Mr. Sperm would say, 'a con- siderable of brains;' and yet you emigrated to Swan River, continue there, and labour lor the good o.'the colony. - Knew ye not, my deluded friend, that the character of this colony was stamped long ago as a ' ne'er do weel ? ' — that long before you left home, the friends of the colony had dispaiied of it, and had been con vinced that no effort of theirs could help folks who had settled down into a quiet resolve not to help themselves ? At least -ou could not have been long here till you learned how hopeless it was to endeavour to waken the quiet, snoozing, ra...

AFFGHANISTAN. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 December 1842

AFGHANISTAN. JFVowi the Friend of India, August 11th. The present Mnil tnfceg home no satisfactory account of the ttute of affairs in AiFghuuistun. General* Nott's force lias indeed been so thoroughly equipped with every re quisite, and is so well furnished with carriage cattle, that lie is able to move with his whole force in any direction ; but the obstacle to his marching; on Cabnl, is the want of nn order to do so from Lord Ellenborough. The objection to there-occupation of the capital, on the ground that our army had not the means of udvanciusr, has thus been en tirely removed. General Nott has a battering train, and nearly as large a^ force as that with which Sir John Keane originally captured Cubul. General Pollock it is truo, has not the cuttle necessary for an advance, but had a de termination to retrieve our honour been formed when the Governor General arrived, and immediately after he had surveyed the state of affair.*, the army of Jellalubad would Lave been amply supplie...
