THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 December 1842

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1842. The public news brought by the Trusty does not come down to so late a period hs that so recently made known liy the arm al of tlsc Chnmpion from Singapore. The latest datca ari; up to tile 1st and 2nd August, while we last week -rave a summary of English news up to the 4tli August. The government has not received any despatches liy the Trusty, and but very few letters to private indivi duals in this part of the colony have come to hand. This may he accounted for by the fact thut two oilier vessels, the Elizabeth, belonging to this port, and Ihe Lady (trey, of London, were both on the berth for Swan River direct, and tJic general mail for this place would probably be placed on board one or other of these vessels ; our good friends at home, and those even better informed than the generality, only knowing that Anstrelind w somewhere on the continent of New Holland, without dreaming that it is within two days' ride of Perth. The Elizabeth was positively to ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. December 1, 1842. DEBATE ON THE SUBJECT OF THE DISPOSAL OF CROWN LANDS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 December 1842

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. December I, 1842. DEBATE ON THE SUBJECT OF THE DISPOSAL OF CROWN LANDS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. His Excellency the Governor called upon the Hon. R. W. Nash to move the several resolu tions on this subject of which he had given notice. m Mr. NASH, in rising to move the first resolu tion, repeated his regret that in consequence of the absence of the hon. member who had origin ated the inquiry, it should have devolved upon him to bring forward the question ; and stated that being thus unexpectedly called upon, the j resolutions had not been prepared with the care that he should have liked to have bestowed upon Ihem. Before moving the first resolution, he should make a tew observations on some subjects on which mistakes might exist ; and first as to the right of the Council to entertain the subject. For his own part, he had not the slightest doubt but that the Council was only doing its duty in seeking to investigate the whole matter ; it was perfectly clear that it ha...

December 2, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 December 1842

December 2, 1842. Mr. NASH, rose to move No's. 14,15, and 16, which at the suggestion of an hon. friend he wished to consolidate into one, as follows : — 14. That since the demand for labour is regulated bv circumstances wholly distinct from the purchase of Crowa lands, there is no natural connection between the fund arising from the 6ale of such lands and that requisite for the introduction of labourers, while there is a direct con nection between the former and the necessity for surveys, communications, and police. 15. That since all classes of society where an increase of population is required are benefit ted by its introduction, all should contribute thereto; and that therefore the pro per and just source of a labour or population fund is gen eral taxation, and 16. That such taxation should be equally divided between the country benefitted by the departure, aud that by the arrival of the individual. No. 14 commenced by stating that the demand for labour was regulated by circums...

(From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

(From a Correspondent.) Australind, Dec. 7, 1842.— A signal made by Mr. Eiiot, the Government Resident at Bun bury, on the hill above his residence, announced to us yesterday morning at an early hour that a ship was in sight. The whole settlement was poon in a state of excitement, from the hope that the long-expected ship from England had at last rounded Cape Naturaliste. The Chief Commis sioner, wifh several of the officers and other gentlemen, immediately proceeded in his boat to the port, and shortly after his arrival there, he set a signal which announced to us that the sail in sight was a British ship. Soon afterwards again another signal announced that the ship was chartered with emigrants by the Company. It is impossible to describe the general excitement which prevailed in the settlement till the Chief Commissioner's return at night, when we learnt that the Trusty, Captain Elsdon, chartered by the Company, had anchored safely in Port Les chenault at 3 o'clock in the afternoo...

THE DISTRESS OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

THE DISTRESS OF THE COUNTRY. T.yits' Edinbvjuuii Magazine roil July. — Has Sir Robert Peel, when looking round ou the unparalleled dis tress which surrounds him, the leisure and the courage \o ask, where is all this to end ? to inquire if the present is one of those ordinary periods of distress which, from lime to time, oct-ur in the history of every ill-governed country ; and of which the symptoms, after they have reached a ct i - tain height, gradually mitigate and finally disappear, to be succeeded in a few years by another und another of those periodical visitations which are totally charged against Providence, und never imputed to the true cause, namely, to the ignorance, blindness, aud bdfishne^s of those who claim, as of divine right, to administer Ihe uffairs of the world for their own advantage ? Is it this temporary vis itation, or is the present distress of a more inveterate and und permanent diameter ? The universal and dreadfui suffering which at present pervades the co...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

WEDNESDAY, DKCEMBKIl 21 , 1842. We are very glad to find that the rciuoii etrance so ably made by the Legislative Council against the present mode of disposing of Crown latids in Western Australia, is to be followed up by a general appeal from the colony at large ; a public meeting having been already convened fur the purpose of taking the «ense of ihe entire community on the resolutions so lately passed bv | the Council. The result cannot be doubtful to J any one who bus watched the course of public opinion, and has noted the earnestness with which j the necessity for a change has been insisted on j by all classes. Perhaps never before, upon any question, in any part ot the world, has there been «o remarkable an unanimity of opinion as has been manifested in this colony upon this subject, and we confess ourselves to be among those who think that the expression of such a g. neral opinion, founded as it is upon practical 'know- ledge and real experience, must have its effect upon the...

SUICIDE OF LOUD CONGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

SUICIDE OF LORD CONGLETON. It is our painful duty to state that this nobleman, better known to the public as Sir Henry Purnell, committed sui cide on Wednesday evening at his residence in Cadogau place, Chelsea, under the influence of depression, which appears to have preyed upon his mind for some time. The deceased, Henry Biooke Parncil, Lord Congleton, who was raised to that dignity by the Melbourne minis-try in 1841, was the sccoud son of Sir John Parnell, Dart., by the second daughter and co-heir of the Right Hon. Sir Arlhnr Brooke, Bart. He was born in 1776, and was consequently CO years of age. He married, in 1801, the eldest daughter of tin* first Earl of Portarlington, by whom he has left a ton, the Hon. John Par«eJl(now Lord Congleton), and five other children. His late lordship succeeded his eldest brother to the baronetcy iu 1812. He was chairman of the finance committee in 1828. In 1831 he filled the post of Secretary at War. Iu April, 1835, he wus appointed Paymaster-Ge...

EXTRACTS FROM ENGLISH PAPERS. TEN THOUSAND LIVES LOST BY EARTHQUAKE AT ST. DOMINGO. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

EXTRACTS FROM ENGLISH PAPERS. TEN THOUSAND LlVtS LOST BY EARTHQUAKE AT ST. DOMINGO. The fire at Hamburgh and the accident on the Versail les Railway sink into intigniHcance before the appalling catastrophe which it is our duty to record this week. The American papers brought by the ' Acadia' inform us that lite Irlaud of bt. Domingo was on the 7th of May visited with fecveve shucks of tarthquake, which were attended with a loss of ten thousand lives — some any double the number. The town of Cape Hnytien hait'utterly disap peared — the miserable inhabitants having been swallowed by the yawning earth ; and it is feu red that the towns of St. Nichdus and Poit Paix have also perished. The fol lowing particulars are supplied by the New York pupers: ' By the politeness of Captain Morris, of the brig William NieUon, from Port au Prince, we have Le Patriote of the 11th May, published at that place, which gives an account of a shocking earthquake that occurred in that island on the 7th May, ...

POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES OF THE LATE EVENTS IN AFFGHANISTAN. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES OF THE LATE EVENTS IN AFFGHANISTAN. Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine tor July. — Before we dismiss this part of the subject it will be ne cessary to mnke some allusion to the political arrange ments which tire rumoured to have taken pluce among the Affghaus themselves since the insurrection at Oibul, as upon these must in some degree depend the measures to be taken for lUe future scUluiueut of i.ue country, iu the event of its again falling into our power, But notwithstanding the length of time since the revolt, the accounts which have been received on this point are so confused, aud so much at variance one with another, that scarcely anything can ho ascertained with certainty. In the consteruution of the first surprise, Sliali-Suoiijau was almost universally de nounced as the prime mover -and instigator of the massacre of the allies who had placed him on the throne ; and his con tinuing to reside unharmed in the Ba!a-His?ar during the siege and after the capitu...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 December 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.'' Sir, — To those who retain the recollection of their early days and feelings, when they first lighted upon and eagerly devoured Gulliver's Travels ; the voyages of Sinbad the sailor, or the adventures of Robinson Crusoe with only a twi- light consciousness that what their fancy so rev- elled in, was not altogether to be believed ; — to such persons (and I acknowledge myself of their number) there is a wonderful charm in the fainter hope, which may present itself, that the romance of discovery has not yet entirely disappeared, and that there still remain some things in the world to incite the research and to reward the hopes and expectations of the bold intelligent explorer. I lately had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Henry Landor, who, however others may dispute his claim to be the discoverer of the land, an ac- count of which lately appeared in your paper has at least the high merit ol having been the earliest to make known its extent and its go...
