THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 January 1843

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 1843. We this week give a recapitulation of the principal events that hare occurred within the colony during the past year, together with a slight commentary upon such of them as seemed to call for more particular explanation. A review of this nature appears to us to be useful, insofar as it presents a convenient field for reference to those whom business or curiosity induces to look back upon the sayings and doings of the colony, without having the trouble of wading through a mass of widely-scattered documents in order to get at any particular result — a task, the difficulty aud tedium of which have been sufficiently manifest to us during our endeavours to reduce the events to something like order. Some of the occurrences thus recapitulated may be looked upon as somewhat insignificant, but they are, comparatively, as important as those which happen in older countries, aud among more extensive communities. If they arc mea sured against the mighty events which,...

AUSTRALIA. (EXTRACT OF A LETTER FROM A GENTLEMAN IN ADELAIDE, DATED JANUARY 19, 1842.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 January 1843

The following remarks on South Australia, written by a person resident in Adelaide, are taken from Bell's New Weekly Messenger. We print them here principally be cause of tlie exposure that is made of the price of land as compared with its value, mid of the ruinous consequences tiiat have followed. AUSTRALIA. (EXTRACT OF A LETTER PROM A GENTLEMAN IN AD ELAIDE, DATED JANUARY 19, 1842.) ' We are now arrived at the height of summer ; the weather occasionally very hot; the thermometer staudu sometimes as high as 110 degrees in the shade, which is as hot as it is at Calcutta or iu the west Indies. But I do not find the heat oppressive ; it aerees with Europeans wonderfully well, and on the whole I consider the climate delightful. Yet this fine colony seems likely to be aban doned, and would perhaps he really so were it not that those who have property in it are tied to it, and the others are too poor to pay the expenses of removal. Notwith standing our bountiful harvest, Iniudreds are pi...

CHRONOLOGICAL REGISTER OF THE PRINCIPAL EVENTS OCCURRING IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA FOR THE YEAR 1842. JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 January 1843

CHRONOLOGICAL REGISTER OF THE PRINCIPAL EVENTS OCCORRINO IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA FOU THE YEAR 1842. JANUARY. 3rd. — Interesting trial, at Quarter Sessions, of an aboriginal native named Wervar, indicted for the murder of Denung, another aboriginal native belonging to the same tribe, and in the em ploy of a white settler. The prisoner's counsel objected to the jurisdiction of the Court that it was not competent to try the prisoner on several grounds, but principally on the ground that the aborigines were not properly punishable, by our laws, for offences committed inter se. The objection was over-ruled by the Court, and the prisoner was arraigned, convicted, and sentenced to trans portation for life at Rottuest. Upon this trial we may observe that an exactly similar case occurred, just before, at Port Phillip, on which oc casion very much the same objections were raised by the prisoner's counsel. The presiding judge, Judge Willis, entertained the objections, and the pri soner was acquit...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 February 1843

To the Editer of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — At a time when the disease called scab is more than commonly troublesome, a few hints to the inexperienced may be of some service. I boast of no scientific knowledge of the origin or nature of scab, neither have I had so much prac tical experience as many of my neighbours, but the effect of my plan has been that during a period of six years I have never been obliged to give a general dressing, and I believe .£1 per annum will cover all expenses for medicine and time. The only trouble I have had was caused by turning in a scabby ram — a thing I will never do again. It was the general opinion that I should tie obliged to go through the fiock; but in this instance I hare proved that what every one says is not true. - I persevered according to my old plan, which is this : — As soon as I perceive the Jeast symp tom of disease, to look over the flock every morning, draw out the infected sheep, and leave them at home to be dressed. properly.

To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — ' The glorious uncertainty of the law' is, I bdieve, proverbial ; but perhaps its ' un certainty' has never attained such a supremacy of beatitude as in this colony, where the legisla tors seem endowed with such a peculiar aptitude tor training laws so misty ana unaennea as 10 defy either the framers, or those for whom they ifrere framed, to comprehend either their purport ?or meaning. Some time since, it was enacted that the sum of five shillings yearly should be levied on every dog, wifh one or two exceptions. I have the felicity to possess a faithful and intel ligent animal of the canine species, who about a month since attained the age of three months.'' No sooner had this period arrived than the con stable of the district paid me a visit, presenting a most formidable and warlike appearance, bearing in his hand a double barrelled gun, with which he threatened to shoot my unfortunate four-footed companion unless I immediately paid the tax. ...

PAPERS ON EMIGRATION. Printed by order of the House of Commons 7th June, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 February 1843

Papers on Emigration. Printed by order of the House of Commons 7th June, 1842. Thesk papers form an immensely fat folio volume, the very sight of which is sufficient to daunt the most determined reader, and from which we havp several times turned away in despair. It contains, however, some highly im portant facts and valuable opinions in regard to emigration and the several subjects connected with it, and we therefore conquer our unwilling ness to face it out of consideration for our readers, who will, we trust, appreciate the resolve. The first paper we cast our eye upon is a trim King despatch from Lord Stanley to Sir George Gipps, dated 14th Oct., 1841, by which we learn that the Governor of New South Wales, in his desire to provide for the want of labour so deeply felt in that colony, had, in the year 1840,6ought to give extension to the system of emigration on bounty, and with tins view had issued bounty orders to an amount far exceeding the probable revenue from land sales, ev...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 February 1843

MISCELLANEOUS. A recent presentment of the Grand Jury for the county of Middlesex contains some curious comments ou the management of gaols, and the punishment of imprisonment. A late number of the 'Examiner' thus remarks upon it: — NEWGATE DESCRIBED BY THE GRAND JURY. ' The ordinary visitor, as he is shown through the yards and passages of the great gaol of London, is struck with the cleanliness and regularity which appear to pervade every nook aiid corner ef the spacious and gloomy edifice ; but abuses lark there which his cursory glance cannot de tect; and irregularities, fatal to that character for clean liness aod healthy arrangement which might seem right fully its due, have been long known to the City Magistrates, without moving them to such slender exertions as would suffice for their correction. Known in vain witbin the Court of Aldermen, it is time that they should be known to better purpose elsewhere. It is the Grand Jury, who have this week concluded their labours at the...

THE INQUIRES. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 February 1843

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1843. After having been talked about for some years, the export of wedders to the Isle of France has fairly commenced, a number having been shipped on board the Trutty, small indeed when we remember how strongly the necessity of find ing a foreign market tor our surplus wedders has been insisted on, but large enough just to open the market and set the scheme going. The ship pers in the present instance are Messrs. G. Lcake, Mangles, I). Scott, Morrell, and Chidlow, who deserve particular mention as being the first to endeavour to establish a trade which will in course of time, when our flocks become large, be highly important to the colony in a variety of ways. As the Trusty afforded excellent accommo dation for the sheep, and in other respects the opportunity was a good one, it may excite some surprise that so few wedders have been sent. Some owners have been deterred no doubt by the risk of the venture, although the loss has bean calculated as not likely to ...
