THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 February 1843
8^^^L ^^^J^E tfP^^t fl^^t ^^B^E ^UuF^ V^E^B Qit^L sB^k &2^^n £9r^E « WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1843. A large flock of sheep, the property of the late John Lewis, Esq , was sold by auction last week by Messrs. Samson. They were in number 950, of a good sort, and in sound condition, and the result, therefore, may be considered as indicative of the state of the market for this kind of live stock. The following are the prices obtained : — Aged ewes, 10s. each ; 4 and 6-tooth ewes, 14s. 6d. ; 2- tooth, 20s. ; wethers, 19s. 6d. j ewe lambs, 10s. ; wether lambs, 6s. 6d. These are the smallest prices that have yet been realised for colonial-bred sheep, and conse quently there are many who are deploring the depressed state of the market, and indulging in gloomy anticipations of what tbey are pleased to call the fallen prospects «f thestock»owner. That some individuals — they, for instance, who bought 6heep three years ago at £5 and £8 per bead will suffer by the reduction that has take...
BEAUTY OF THE "WOMEN OF MILO. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 February 1843
BEAUTY OP T5IE WOMEN OF MlLO. TI.g houses at the Castro are very unpretending in their outward appearance, but are models of neatness and clemiliii(6S within. The eraturing portion of tlie inhabit ants is a tine manly-looking race, and, judging from the specimens which we saw, the women are remarkable for l.eanty. During our ascent and descent through the town, we noticed ten or twelve heads, which, in delicacy of out line, realized the beau ideal of Greek sculptors, and scarce ly less the dreams of eastern poets, in the softness of the eyes and the fine penciling of the eyebrows. Two of these boautious heads we saw betiding over an occupation of a very humble nature, that of ply inn the shuttle. The noise of a loom attructed our attention, and having had occasion to observe, in the course of our previous perambulations, the simple manner in which the islanders card and spiu their native cotton, we were desirous of seeing, also, their process of weaving, and asked permission to ente...
CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 February 1843
CHIXA. With an energy inseparable from tlia British diameter wherever a Briton plants his foot, the buildings in Hong kong are progressing with amazing expedition : already we Uarn, habitations for 20,000 Europeans are erected, or in ceurse of erection : and as the place is now definitively ceded to the British crown, it will very speedily become a most important and extensive settlement. There is ano ther momentous circumstance connected with these affaire in China, which must have a remarkable effect in all mat ters for the future. An officer of the highest rank is to re side in Londou «slhc Ambassador of the Celestial Emperor, while a nobleman of corresponding distinction will repre sent the Court of St. James's at Pekin. The extent of ' China proper' is 1,800,000 square miles, the number of acres of land actually in cultivation at 530,000,000, and the population at 833,000,000. The eighteen provinces are intersected by upwards of 2,000 canals, running in every direction, communi...
EXTRACTS FROM NEW BOOKS. BEAUTY OF THE APPROACH TO ATHENS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 February 1843
EXTRACTS FROM NEW BOOKS. BEAUTY OF THE APPROACH TO ATHBNS. This modern mode of travelling permitted me to Inxuri ate in the beauty of the approach to Athene, which, to be appreciated, must be seen, and seen, ton, at the hour when the Acropolis is gilded by the rays of the setting sun, and every outline of the rock, the walls, and the columns, is defined with the delicacy of an etching. When I first visited Athens, 1 acknowledged to be unrivalled in beauty and splendour the approach to the city,under such circum stances ;but the 6cene of yester-evening seemed to me to be yet richer than the picture treasured up in my memory. As I called to mind that many an exile had wept us the sacred columns receded from his view, I should have pro nounced the tribute of tears to be justly paid to the beauty of the objects they were compelled to quit, independent of the associations which, at such a moment, patriotism and religion would Eummun in array before them. Even, to a ' barbarian' a divine ...

SITTINGS OF THE INQUISITION. [Scene — An arbour containing a talk, on which are set tankards and a foaming jug of ale. Present — The three Inqtjisitorb, with every man his pipe.] Sir Patrick.— i ou may growl as you like, Mr. Walker, but, thank Heaven, the colony, even as already known, contains land enough for four times its present population. Ah ! had you only seen the rich and teeming districts of the centre and of the sourh, where the whole country in its native and negligent fertility looks, like Eden, ' a wilderness ot sweets,' you would not join the common cry of the ignorant at home, and say that Western Australia is only a wilderness of sand.

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XI. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 February 1843
CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XI. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' SIR, — Of the natural order Chenopodeæ, of Decandolle, we have, in Western Australia, seve- ral genera, and many species. An oak-leaved Chenopodium, found on alluvial soil near the banks of brooks in the Toodyay district, resem- bles in appearance the Mexican C. Anbrosi- dides, and probably, like that species, contains an essential oil ; and I have observed a scrubby species, with linear leaves, near the Government &nbsp; Store in Perth, the seeds of which have a power- ful, penetrating odour. Like the C. Anthelmin- ticum, almost all the plants belonging to this order are esculent, and several of our indigenous species were used in the first years of the colony as vegetables. I have observed that two of the English species, which are in England trouble- &nbsp; some as weeds, have found their way to Swan River. Our extensive salt marshes on the banks of the Swan are mostly...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 March 1843
MISCELLANEOUS. Professor Wilson has published a work entitled ' Recreations of Christopher North j' we extract from it a panegyric on the Poet Bowles, conceived in his peculiar, heartfelt and happy style : — ' Breathi c not the man with a more poetical tempera ment than Bowles. No wonder,, that his old eyes are still »o lustrous ; for they possess the fleered cift of beautifying creation, by sheddiog over it tho charm of melancholy. ' Pleasant but mournful to the boul is the memory of joys that are past' — is the text we '- should choose 'were we ' about to preach on his genius. No rain repining, no idle regrets, does his spirit now breathe, over the still receding Patst. But time-sanctitied are all the shows that arise be lore his pensive imagination ; and tr|u common light of day, once gone, in his poetry seems to shfne as if it had all been dying sunset or moonlight, or the new-born duwn. His human sensibilities are m fine as to be in theinselves poet ical ; and his poetical lisp...
VARIETIES, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 March 1843
VARIETIES. ' I sec,' said a young lady, ' that tome booksellers ad vertise blBnk declarations for sale. I wish I could get one.' ' Why V asked her mother. ' Because, ma, Mr. O. is too modest to nsk me to marry him, und perhaps if I could fill a blank declaration with the question, be would sign it.' London now measnresu7i miles in length from east to vest, by a breadth of Smiles from north to south. Its cir cumference, allowing for various inequalities, is estimated at thirty miles, while the area of ground ft covert is considered to measure no lest than eighteen square miles. Colours have been found to absorb odours as they do heat, according to their intensity. Thus, a black coat ab sorbs odour more than a white one, and Is, therefore, n less desirable habiliment in cases of epidemic. — Foreign Jour nal.

To the Editor oftke Inquirer. Mr. Editor, — I have lately heard several persons grumbling at not being able to procure remittances far their several correspondents in England, aod also at the want of export commo dities, and am led to hope that the following list of the' prices of timber fi-om the London Journal of Commerce n-ay induce some of .our inert traders to exert thcL*»seives in procuring and. e,x jporting an article so t'amdant in our colony as limber.

A MODE TO INSURE EMIGRATION OF CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 March 1843
A MODE TO INSURE EMIGRATION OF CAPITAL. No one informed on the present state of our Colonies in whatsoever quarter, except the Tro pical Colonies of the West, is unaware that they suffer from a want of capital. The want is most strongly manifest in those settlements which have made the most rapid progress in prosperity ; in none is it more disastrously apparent than in the wealthy and flourishing New South Wales. The inhabitants have capital to great amounts, but they require more. It was assumed that the certainty of a labour-market in the settlements of South Australia and New Zealand, colonised nn der the new system, and the maintenance of a market- value for land, would attract capital ; and so it has done, but not sufficiently. Had the system been unquestioned, had it been better known, it undoubtedly would have attracted more capital ; but it met with a virulent opposi tion, which had an ample field to work upon in i the unprepared ignorance of the public. No knowledge ever ma...

CRITICISM ON THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 March 1843
CHirtCIa'M ON THE nATTLE 01' WATERLOO. Tn the fi/.ut place, it is evident, whatever the English writer* rn-'y say to tlic contrary, that both Blucher ami the Duke cf WeHinglon were surprised by Napaleon's inva sion of lieleium on tlie 15th of June ; and it is impossible to u/ilr', eithrr of them er.Urely blameless for that circutn stance.
