THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 March 1843

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1843. Our attention has been drawn to a most ex traordtnary article which appears in the Colonial Gazette of the 21st September, 1842, headed ' Danger of a dense population in Western Australia.' The article in question is as feeble in reasoning as it is impudent in' assertion, and in the unblushing way in which it neglects a mean ing, which, although unfortunately somewhat obscure, is yet sufficiently clear to any but those who are determined not to Understand, and pa rades its own malicious inferences, partakes more of the character of former times, when it was the fashion to abuse and decry everything relating to this colony, than of the more honest sentiment of later days, in which our position is better under stood and appreciated. Ai it is our purpose to comment at some length upon this article in the Colonial Gazette, we shall commence by extracting the whole of it, in order that our readers may be advised of the nature of the argument Thus writes the edi...

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

' To the Editor of the '* Inquirer.' SiR, — The number of gratuitous and preme ditated suicides which have been perpetrated in this country within a recent period, have forced me, us a matter of paramount though painful duty, to bring this subject before the public in all its frightful, hideous deformity. I feel the painful ness of the duty in no ordinary degree, and would willingly shrink from the severe ordeal, which may perhaps be looked upon by many as an un called-for exacerbation of the bitterest feelings that can possibly belong to mourning relatives ; but sympathizing as I do, sincerely and feelingly with all my suffering and afflicted brethren ; and anxious even to timidity, to avoid, as far as iV consistent with my straight forward duty, a single expression winch might create an additional pang in the bosom of a bereaved friend, I feel the importance of the subject itself more than sufficient to supersede the necessity of any apol ogy. There are two distinct states of mind...

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XIV. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 March 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XIV. To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   SIR,— Of the extensive natural order Myrtaceæ, Western Australia contains a large number of species, among which Dr. Lindley remarks, the subclass Chammœlancieæ are extremely interest- ing ; these chiefly consist of bushes with small heath-like leaves, and white, yellow, or purple flowers, of great brilliancy, more or less collected into heads. Although scarcely noticed in the re- ports of either Brown, or Frazer, they form a most striking object in the vegetation. Of the genus Calytrix alone, Dr. Lindley remarks that he had ten species in his collection ; he considers the finest to be Calytrix flavescens, of Cunning- ham, which grows on the '"Cut hill" on the road   from Perth to Guildford ; the Aurea, a new species which Dr. Lindley figures, grows on the Toodyay road, about two miles from where it turns from the Upper Swan road, towards the hills, and his Sapphirina, a beau...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 March 1843

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 1843. Ik our leading article of last week we made known to our readers that the editor of the Colonial Gazette had, in the true spirit of a parti san, attempted to throw ridicule over the efforts that have been made in this colony to place Western Australia in its proper light before the 1* «? i it* ? 11 I ..1 /* -? O .1 iJiiusn puoiic, especially uy tne formation oi we Western Australian Society. We are pretty well satisfied that the real friends of the colony, both Jiere and elsewhere, would be able to see through the flimsy pretences of the Colonial Gazette, and put down its hasty assertions to the score of un warranted prejudice ; but as some few of our readers may experience some natural disappoint ment at the ungenerous way in which the exer tions of the colony have been met, and may even be deterred from proper perseverance in the fituse, we think, it right to inform them that al i hough the Colonial Gazette shows hostility to ihe iH'W society, and profes...

To the Editor of the inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 March 1843

To the Editor of the Inquire?.^' Sir, — Although not desirous, as you observe, to ' renew the question of a corn-law' — a ques tion, in my opinion, not only not u happily dis posed of,' but not 'disposed of' at all, — I would wish to make a few remarks upon the ad vice which you give to the farmers, that the prospect of increased emigration and the remu nerating prices of this season should stimulate them to increased tillage. Such would be so obvious an effect, if they could calculate on the amount and nature of what I will call ' the op position,' tliet your advice would be needless ; but my reason for now addressing you is, that in the absence of protective duties, 1 apprehend that your advice would unintentionally prove most mischievous. I agree with you that a larger demand than hitherto must take place next sea son for flour : but I believe that it is likely to be more than compensated by importation; and for these reasons — first, the high prices of this year will be reported...

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XV. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 March 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XV. To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   SIR, — Of the Myrtaceæ, with distinct stamens, Dr. Lindley, in his Swan River Botany, ob- serves, that the species of known genera are numerous, but not in general so handsome as those already mentioned ; but there is one species of Calistemon, with rich crimson stamens, which is perhaps the finest of the genus ; this is the C. Phœniceum, which grows at the Rocky Pass, and abundantly on the plains near the head of the Helena River. Frazer speaks of two species of Metrosideros growing on the beach, the frag- rance of which exceeded anything he had ever experienced ; one of these is the common pepper- mint, which grows, especially in the Vasse dis- trict, to a very large tree. In our late journey to the south of the Blackwood, we observed, in the swampy country lying between the Scot River and the coast, a remarkable tree apparently of the genus Metrosideros, but having much the habit and so...

?TO THE EDITOR At' THE COLOSl.lL GAZETTE. ClusluiM Plwe, Sept. 11), 1842. Sir,— The length of my last letter induced me to po«t poue replying to the very important question of the capability of tfvw Zealmid to rirn.luce articles for exporta tion ; an-i 1 tn si that the vit;:I interest of the subject to tiie colony will be th* best apology for my trespassing so Bonn attain on your r.dultrence. The article which has hitherto been looked to as ulti mately to form the chief staple of export is the phorminm tenax, or Now Zealand flax. This plant is indieeiious, and found everywhere in profusion. I have never heard that any attempt has been madr to improve it by cultivation ; and although, as at present prepared by the natives, ii answers, well for various descriptions of cordate, there sorms to be some defect, either in the manner of dressing or in the plant itself, which maket it unfitted for general use, from its snapping wherever a knot or bipht happens to be formed.
