THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 February 1843

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1843. We publish below an account by Messrs. H. Landor and H. M. Lefroy of an expedition un-   dertaken by them to the S. E. of the York dis-   trict in search of the large lake, or inland sea, of which the mention has been lately revived. The lake itself does not turn out to be so extensive as report made it, but it is still by far the largest sheet of water that has yet been discovered in the interior, and although apparently of little real use, suggests matter for curious speculation and more particular inquiry. There is one thing we observe with pleasure, which is that the existence of a very considerable tract of good country on the right bank of the Hotham is now placed beyond a doubt, Messrs. Landor and Lefroy having, No. 132] traversed it at two points fifty miles from each other. It will be srrn that Messrs Landor and Le- froy went only a few miles to the eastward of the large lake, (Dambeling) being driven back by the nature...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 February 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of tiie 'Inquirer' Sir, — In your newspaper of the 1st instant t observe that my name has been somewhat uncc-j remoniously dragged before the public by Henry Landor, Esq., J.P. It is far from my wish to have any quarrels with magistrates, but the truth is the truth, and I cannot refrain from taking notice of the paragraph in which my name ap pears. Mr. Clark did ask me if ever I had been fined 5s. for an assault on Mr. Nieman, on hi» mere oath, without a witness, but Mr. Clark was wrong in 6tating that Captain Mcares was pre sent. The case was hourd before Mr. Landor alone, and he fined me 5s. 1 said I did not but after searching among some nails and gim lets, I found the requisite sum, and laid it on the table before him. What became of it afterwards I cannot say, as it never returned to my pocket. On the 6ame occasion Mr. Landor sentenced Nieman to one month's imprisonment in Fre mantle gaol for breach of contract'#ith me, and no other magistrate was ...

NOTES ON NOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 February 1843

NOTES ON NOSES. (From the Illustrated London News.) To put asidd the extreme case of men without noses, we ask, was there ever an instance known of a man with a small, pitiful, paltry none, distinguishing himself in arts, literature, or arms ? We suppose not. Were Homer, Shakspeare, or Milton, or Raffaelle, or Corregio, Marl borough, or Collingwood, men with little noses ? Has the 'Iron Duke,' the hero of a hundred fights, a little nose ? If be had, we are certain he never would have sained the battle of Waterloo, or become the Prime Minister of Eng land. There is, in truth, more in a nose thau many people seem to imagine. Extremes, however, are not good. It is possible for a man to have too little, as well as too much, even of a good thing. ThiB holds good especially in the matter of the noses. A man may have a small, diminutive, torn-tit of a nose — in short a mere apology for a nose ; or he may have a remarkably large, powerful, aristocratical-looking nose, toll toll AAAtnO 4-fft...

By Huh means the wheat was alwayb found to be cured of smut, while thii vegetating principle was uninjured ; great cure being taken that the water was boiling, and the wheat taken out of the water as soou as completely wetted.
