THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 March 1843

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, 1643. The news brought by the Elizabeth is anterior to that received by the* Lady Gray. The dis turbances in the manufacturing and mining dis tricts were only then commencing; of their prompt suppression we have already informed the public. Many people were dissatisfied with Sir Robert Peel on the subject of the Income-tax, who yet couid not deny that it Mas as necessary for the restoration of the energies of the country, as medicine is for the human patient, and equally unpalatable. The Vice Chancellor is said to have declared, with some humour, that the act must be extended over a longer term than three years, as it will be impossible for him to decide within that period all the cases which will arise out of it. Among the questions of interest and importance which nave come under the uotice of parliament during the late session, none appears to have excited more attention than the inquiry into the condition of women and children em ployed in the coal mines.

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XI. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 March 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTEll XI. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' SIR, — Of the natural order Convolvulaceæ of Jussieu we have two small species, of Convolvulus found on the alluvial banks of our rivers, the seeds of which are much sought after by the bronze winged pigeons, at one season ; and we have Dr. Brown's Calystegia Sepium, a beautiful plant, with us only found in salt marshes, about Australind, the Vasse, &c. In our late journey to the South, I saw it in flower, in great perfection, near the mouth of the Sabina river, the flowers a beautiful rose colour with five broad white stripes. This plant certainly comes very near the Convolvulus Septum, of Linneus but I think it may be distinguished from it as a species, by its more slender habit, and from its only growing in salt marshes. Dr. Brown's Wilsonia Humilis, is plentiful near the Vasse Inlet, and we have several species of Cuscuta, and other nearly allied plants, which belong to this order. Of Borag...

SUBSTITUTES FOB SALT IN CURING MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

SUBSTITUTES FOB SALT IN CURING MEAT. The Buccaneers are said to derive the name from their primary employment of boucarntng or beef-jerking ut St. Domingo, and probably to them we bit indebted for this useful mode of meat preserving ; which gives the same amount of nourishment in one-fourth of weight to that of fresh killed as well as salt meat, while not conducing to scurvy like the latter. Iu no part of the Old World, that 1 am aware of, bas jerking ever been practised, except in places such as Madagascar, where it has been introduced tor the supply of slave-ships. Beef-jerking is confined to the hot and dry summer months; the jerking-season in Chili being looked forward to like harvest-time in En gland, lit wcll-reguluted establishments the labour is di vided ; the jerkers having nothing to do with the killing, skinning, Sue. B* expert are they as to excite the aston ishment of novices at the rapidity with which they slice the ?uimal up ; the slices being deprived of fat, and so ...

CORRESPONDENCE. " To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. ' To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr. Editor.- — Mistakes are by no means, uncommon in this widely dispersed community, and it appears to me, that in an article found in your journal ol the 1st of March, on the 'body of a man being found in the river &c,' you haire fallen into two. The body of the unfortunate man alluded to was found by Mr. Gresswell within a few yards of the landing-place on Belnwnt, and nearly op posite Mr. Rowland's house, and more than a mile from my residence. The wound on his head I did not observe, nor do I think there was one, except it was in the eye and even that appears to be doubtful. From the testimony of a person present the body was identified to be that of ? Can*, (a great drunkard), who, when liv ing, had a detect in one eye, that eye being near ly twice the size of the other. As a matter of consequence 1 concluded that the defective eye had burst, or that it had not closed and had bcu* attacked \-y aei'ivb or other flsli, ...

AVIS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

AVIS. A friend in whose affairs we takca deep interest, hae entrusted to us his cares and his sorrows upon a point of domestic arrangement which call for our utmost sympathy. Our friend, with every desire to become the head of a family, and, we may add, with every qualification necessary to adorn the state matrimonial, is a bachelor, being kept in that unnatural state of existence merely by the ' res ungmta domi,' and by a similar lack of the pecune in those who in every other respect are formed to make him happy. Our friend has several times taken counsel with us in the hope that we could suggest a remedy for ' the hard condition of his fate,' but the case was far beyond our relief— like Falstaff, we could ' find no euro for this d ? consumption of the purse ;' all that we could do was to quote Malthus to him, and urge upon him the indis putable fact that money, sufficient at least to keep the wolf from the door, was as necessary to a discreet matrimonial arrangement as any of the ...

THE CAUSES OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

THE CAUSES OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN DIFFICULTIES. (From ' The Budget' by Colonel Torrens.) 'The colony of South Australia was esutuitbhed for the purpose of bringing to the test of actual experiment the practicability of defraying the expense of conveying the unemployed labour --f the United Kingdom to the unap propriated land of the Colonies, by means of the nmrketa uie value which ttte influx of au industrious population confers upon thti-wtluelet-s wastes of a uew couutiy. Iu all that regards the principle of defraying the cost of emi gration out of the value it creates, tins important experi ment has been more than successful. The conveyance of 15,000 settiers to a wilderness as valueless us the wave which broke upon its shore, conferred upon that wilder ness a maiketbbie value *'»v exceeding the tost of convey-, ance by which that valu-- «vus created.

Governor Maequarje'i principle in cultivable land dig tributjon was the gmoliug of it in small allotments ; find ing that large proprietors seldom raised more grain or other field-produce than sufficed for thuir establishments, looking to stock and woul for income ; while the small proprietors were obliged to bring the graiu and other fluid produce raised by them to market, from these being their main income-source. Nearly the whole of the orange* und other Iruits, the poultry, eggs, kitchen- vegetublee, &c., are also furnished for general consumption by the small occupiers ; the time of the lurge ones being better employ ed in attending to their flocks and herds. large stock holders keep a two or three years grain supply for their establishments on hand, which they will not part with the moment a harvest-failure takes place ; taught not to do so by|the dear-bought experience ...

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XIII. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XIII. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' SIR, — Of the extensive natural order Com- positæ, or Asteraceæ, Dr. Lindley remarks that the species of this order at Swan River are numerous, and in some cases beautiful ; a few of thrm are curious, but the greater part are neither the one nor the other. Frazer mentions our gigantic sow-thistle, which was used as a vegeta- ble by our first settlers, and I have seen the plant blanched by gathering up the leaves, and laying sods of earth over them, when they are little in- ferior to endives as a salad ; it is eaten by all the domestic animals, and is now becoming scarce in the settled districts. The family of everlasting flowers are very numerous, and very beautiful ; our common heart-leaved pink everlasting flower, Rhodanthe Manglesii, the awl-leaved pink ditto, Lawrencella Rosea, the lance-leaved pink, and several other new plants of this family, are ex- ceedingly beautiful ; our large white everlas...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 1843. It is rather singular that as yet no notice has been given by the local government of the receipt of Lord Stanley's Act to regulate the sale of waste lands in Australia. The Act becomes law in each colony from the day on which a copy thereof is received by the governor, of which he is to make proclamation. As one Government Gazette has been allowed to pass over without any sach proclamation, or other notice respecting it, we should be almost led to imagine that the Act has not even yet been received in this colony, were it not for the avowed determination of Lord Stanley to bring it into operation throughout Australia with the least possible delay. In any other part of the world, upon a question of such importance, a deputation would have waited upon the Governor for the purpose of ascertaining whether the necessary instructions had been re- ceived, and what were the intentions of the local government with respect to the promulgation of the new law ; here, ...

WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH THE PAUPERS AT HOME? [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 March 1843

WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH THE PAUPERS AT HOME? The "state of the country" knows no improvement. A   Minister of the Crown has declared that the main hope of alleviatiug the distress depends on that which is prover- bially precarious — the seasons : three bad harvests conse- cutively have not hitherto been experienced in England ; but should the untoward experience now come for the first time, those large towns und populous districts, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Leicester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, and their manifold appendages together with all Ireland, which now suffer from destitution, hunger, and disease, in summer, must suffer an aggravation of misery such as the present generation is acquainted with only from books.. Yet the "wealth" of England has not diminished : as   Sir Robert Peel stated the other night, the superabundant capital of the country still seeks investment in buying cot- ton for manufacturing, and in building factories.

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

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — I am afraid that by your abrupt allu sion to your learned friend who assured you the millenium will arrive in 1844, your readers will question yor.r friend's sanity, rather than bestow a thought upon the interesting times that are ap proaching. No one who considers the 'signs of the times,' or bestows a thought upon the mysterious prophetic periods, can fail to be con vinced that the latter days, so long expected, are approaching, and that this generation stands on the very threshold of great events. Without any ardent expectation of a millenium in 1844, or in deed of any millenium at all to the inhabitants of Swan River under the present dispensation, I think we are fully authorised to expect great changes in the political world, particularly re garding the despised Israelites, in the course of the next few years. When we consider that the time time-* and a half, or 1260 years, of the abomination of desolation, are about to term...
