THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28,1842, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 December 1842
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1842. The Inquirer of this day appears without the customary middle sheet. It is better to be honest about the matter at once, and we therefore con fess that it has been omitted for the purpose of giving a little opportunity to all concerned of sharing in the festivities of the season. As we have all worked tolerably hard during the year, we are quite sure that our subscribers will not grudge us the trifling relaxation that has been thus obtained. We are minded to say something about Christ mas, were it only in order that the merry dis ports and popular customs of England at this season should be remembered in England's anti podes, but our old friend comes to us in this country in such extraordinary guise, that we almost fail to recognise him. It may not be known to many of our readers that our Christmas festivities have been traced, for their origin, to the Roman Saturnalia, a series of festivals dedicated to Saturn, and which we are told were designed to re...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 4, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 January 1843
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 4, 1843. The principal event since our last has been the public meeting of our brother colonists in support of the resolutions lately passed by the Legislative Council relative to the price and method of dis posal of Crown lands, a report of which meeting will be found in this day's journal. The meeting in question differed from ordinary occasions of the kind, in so far as there was no speechifying. AH being unanimous, there were no counter opinions to oppose, and each person came to the meeting, not with a view to oratorical display, but for the simple purpose of recording his opinion by voting for the several resolutions. In short, but one feeling actuated the meeting, and that feeling was to back the views and opinions of the Council by the concurrent testimony of the whole colony. We have, before this, remarked on the extra ordinary unanimity that prevails throughout the land on this important question, which is the more remarkable when we remember that it has...

Sheep: — That the flocks generally are in a healthy state, and from the past and continued attention which has been paid to their breed, not only has the size been improved, but a better staple, and more suited to the English market, has been acquired. The flocks have not been entirely free from scab, but in every instance where prompt remedies were applied, this disease has been kept under and speedily removed ; and another year has further proved how well this district is adapted to the depasturing of sheep. With respect to the scab, as in most instances the disease has been occ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 January 1843
MISCELLANEOUS. A very interesting accoimt of the War in Syria hy Commodore Sir Charles Napier, has lately been published in London. We extract from it th-« fallowing account of the attack on Acre, whic'i h;is ],evn called ' th« most celebrated ; achicvcineiit of modern limes ;' also some re mui-ks by liie Commodore relative to a curious misunderstanding between himself and the Ad miral commanding : — Shortly after, as we were standing: to the northward to round the shoal, and give room for the squadron to follow, the signal wus made to bear up, to which I replied,' 1 in tend attacking from the north.' I believe the answer was not understood, and the flag-lieutenant came on hoard to know what we were waiting for. I desired him to ex plain to the admiral my intention. A few miuutes after a signal was made to the Revenge to keep under weigh as u reserve, much to the aunoyance of my friend Cuptaiu Waldegrave.

To the Editor of the « Inquirer.' Sin, — It is with great reluctance I take my pen to appear before the public in your columns as a writer, and in doing so, I do hope I shall not be classed among the polemical disputants of the day ; for I would rather appear before you in the humble, lowly garb of a mediator, bearing the wand of love and the olive branch of peace, than teme forth in the most gigantic form as this most refined reasoner, or armed with the keenest wit, the deepest 6alire, or the most cutting sarcasm that ever fell from the tongue or pen of man. Nothing but a sense of duty to my God ?' whose 1 am, and whom I serve,' and to my fellow Christian colonists, compels me, and if I thought anything -short of those principles would fall from me, I would this instant stop short my pen, commit this to the flames, and condemn myself for thus fur advancing. I know not whether the spirit of angry disput ation is pleasing or profitable to editors and our friends generally ; if the la...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' My Dear Mr Editor, — To you, as the sympathiser with all disappointments, and the rcdresser of all grievances, I address myself, un der circumstances of such extreme distress, as will, I am sure, incite your deepest commiser ation. I am one, sir, with a tolerable supply of friends or at least of acquaintances, in England, and as such look forward with some anxiety to the arrival of a ship, in the expectation of receiv- j ing letters from them. Upon hearing of the ar rival of the Lady Grey, I saddled my fleetest steed, and in due course arrived at the Post Of fice, where, on inquiry of the courteous official, I learned to my satisfaction that there wasajetter to my address, which I could have on payment of 1*. Qd. With one hand I tendered the coin, and with the other I clutched the much coveted document. It was bulky, much more so than the letters I am usually in the habit of receiving, and as I poised it on my fore finger to ascertain...
