THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 March 1843

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29, 1843. By the arrival of the Success we have English papers down to the 27lh November last. They contain little that will interest our readers, being occupied, lor the most part, with the particulars of the conclusion of peace with China, and of the succeews, and excesses, of our troops in Afghan istan — details with which our readers have already been made acquainted. All parties agree in praising the fortunate chance of these «uuci-si-(ui issues, the more so as very different WKiiltH appear to have been expected. Although iho alarming riots in the manufac turing districts, of which we had accounts by the last arrival, have now ceased, yet no sensible iin j*ruvemaii has been manifested in I lie internal state of the country, or in the condition of the working classes. The same pressure of the population upon territory and upon subsistence, which is the real cause of the distress, still exists, and must continue to exist until a remedy is iouml ia emigration. In ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 March 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir,— As a member of the ' Western Austra lian Society,' and one who warmly advocated its institution, I hope I shall be pardoned if I attempt a few words in its defence when I hear it attacked by persons of timid policy and vacil lating purpose. It has been lately asserted by such that the formation of our society is likely to prove in jurious to oar interests ; that it is decried by the London Colonial journals, and condemned by many in England who call themselvee the friends of Western Australia. It was never my belief that this Society would be established without encountering many re bukes ; I have only been surprised that it has met with so few. That the great majority of those who affect to ponder upon the policy of any measure submitted to their consideration, should be unable to foresee and appreciate the advan tages likely to result from its adoption, is a circumstance so common and natural, that only the most sanguine, and th...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 March 1843

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. It has been reported during the last week, that Lord Lyndhurst will retire from the woolsack, and be succeeded by Lord Abinger. This we can scarcely believe. Why should the present Chancellor retire ? Is he not the Tory as well as the government leader in the House of Lords ? Has he not fought all their battles, and stood in the breach against the battering rams of popular feeling and democracy 1 Where are talents to be found in the ranks of the Conservatives of the upper house equal to those of his lordship. Lord Abinger is far from being an able or an eloquent man. His success at the bar was rather the re sult of tact than genius. Chief-Justice Abbott lent him his ear, and having the ear of the court he pleaded with effect. In the House of Com mons, when Henry Brougham (now Lord Brougham) was defending with astounding talent the cause of liberty and progress, Sir James Scarlett, though professing to belong to the same party, rarely spoke, and when he did do...

AGRICULTURAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 April 1843

AGRICULTURAL MEETING, A quarterly meeting of the Western Australian Agricultural Society was held at Guildford on Friday last, and was very numerously attended. His Excellency the Governor was requested to preside. The Secretary reported that the Treasurer had proceeded materially in working up a plan of ac counts with a view to an improved system of financial management, as was agreed upon at the last meeting, but that as the Treasurer was un avoidably absent, the subject had better be defer red to the next meeting. Also that the committee appointed to suggest an improved system of re wards and prizes had met, and gone largely into the subject, but their report was not quite ready. It was made an instruction to this committee that they should be at liberty to associate to them selves other members, and tkat their report, after having been sanctioned by the directors, should be added to the journal of the Society's proceed ings now about to be published. The rules relating to the re...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Venerated Sir! — Will you have the good ness to inform me, out of the profundity of your inscrutable wisdom, whether it be the comet or the moon which has had such an effect upon my friend the Post-master General as to make him issue his ordinance of the 21st ultimo ? There is a celestial sublimity about the pro duction that is altogether beyond admiration. ' It having been found next to impossible to in sure the payment of the postages due on letters delivered' in Perth, it is decreed that the peri patetic philosopher of the post-office shall no longer perambulate the streets with his budget of returned bills and rural intelligence, but shall in stead remain ensconced in the solemn seclusion of the Post-master General's own cellar, there to await the anxious enquiries of the whole popula tion of Perth, as every morning they make their I obeisance before the dimity curtain, which con i cealsthe priests of the Post-office and enquire, 'any | letters f...

PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 April 1843

PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITURE. Of all the wonderful discoveries of modem science, there Is none more miraculous in its nature, and but few that huve made so rapid a progress, as the system of pho tographic portraiture, which, ' by the sacred radiance of the sun,' revoals to us, iu the space of a few seconds, a complete transcript of our outward man. In the appli cation of natural powers to the arts end sciences, the ad vancement made towards perfection has almost uniformly been gradual, although occasionly very rapid strides have succeeded the slow and measured tread ; and this princi ple is fully borne out by an examination of the progressive appliance of air and fire, of wind and water, to the numer ous branches of art, manufacture, and commerce. Liuht, however, the source from whence photography spriugo, has taken no part in the gradual advancement we have described; although it may be termed the primary of cre ated powers, t.ie application of its capabilities has been the least under...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 April 1843

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1843. It is with great pleasure that we this day publish the annual report of the Directors of the Western Australian Agricultural Society, and we refer all our readers to it as a document con- taining a clear and able statement of the agricul- tural and general progress of the colony up to the time to which it has reference. We cannot but here remark, that the present report is a great and striking improvement upon those of preceding years : it its much more general and argumentative — it enters more deeply into the history of our colonial concerns, and explains the causes and effects of the agricultural and com- mercial crises which we have experienced, and which must be experienced, at intervals, by all communities, whether small or great. We do not wish to take away from the merit of pre- vious reporters, but we conceive that we should not be doing justice were we to fail to acknow- ledge the diligence and ability of the Secretary as displayed in the present ...

INCEDARISM AT AUSTRALIND. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 April 1843

INCENDARISM AT AUSTRALIND. Australind, March 21, 1843. — It is with great regret we record the occurrence of two fires, which, there is reason to believe, were pur- posely effected by some evil disposed person. In the garden below the Crescent Hill, and at a short distance from the Chief Commissioner's temporary residence, stood three cottages — part of those erected by the officers and settlers after the site of the settlement was decided upon. One of these, constructed of mahogany timber and paper-bark, belonging to Mr. Treen and Mr John Smith, two officers of the Survey Department, now absent in the bush, was locked up. On the evening of Friday, the 17th, about 10 o'clock, a light was observed by the party in the Chief Commissioner's drawing-room, to issue from the roof of this cottage. Mr. Andrew Stirling, Mr. Clifton's sons, and other gentlemen, immediately rushed to the spot. They found the fire just bursting forth from the inside of the cottage, the door of which was stiff lo...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 April 1843

To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   Sir, — The subject of the timber-trade having lately occupied much attention, the following remarks may not be out of place. The rainy season being now close at hand, shows the necessity of our immediately com- mencing an export trade of our mahogany to Great Britain and the neighbouring colonies, the value and advantages of which I shall pro- ceed to point out in as few words as possible, so as to not to encroach much on your valuable time mid paper. In 1836 — 37, some stir was made in our small community from an offer made by the Admiralty to Sir James Stirling, offering a sum not exceeding £12 10s. per ton for a certain quantity of our native mahogany, when delivered at Her Majesty's dockyards, and subject there to the usual survey. At that period labour was very high and very scarce, so much so that the then wages of a pair of sawyers often amounted from 20s. to 30s. per day ; and now wages are but little more than one-third of tha...

COURT OF REQUESTS—PERTH. Before E. W. Landor, Esq., Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 April 1843

COURT OF REQUESTS— Perth. Before E. W. Landor, Esq., Commissioner. On the court-day last week, March 31st, a cause was tried which we notice as being the first instance in this colony in which an aboriginal native has figured as plaintiff; thus asserting his right to equal laws and equal justice with his fel low subjects the white population. Mooyan, an intelligent young native, who has been brought up in the Wesleyan school at Perth, had ob tained a summons against William Lenington, a market-gardener of this town, for the sum of half-a-crown, claimed by him as wages lor ser vices rendered on the following occasion. Moo yan stated thai he was one day a short lime ago going to Guildford, when defendant met him in   Perth and asked him to bring back a pony for him. Mooyan consented to do so for half-a- crown, which Lewington agreed to give. Dofon, another native youth, similarly edu cated, having been first warned by the Commis sioner to speak the truth, and questioned a...

MERIVALE ON COLONIES AND COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 April 1843

MERIVALE ON COLONIES AND COLONIZATION. The above is the title of a very luminous critique, in Blackwood's Magazine for August 1842, on the published lectures of the Professor i ofPoliiical 3iconomy at the University of Ox ford. The reviewer entGis on the subject at con siderable length and follows Sir. Meri vale through his very admirable sketch of the actual and past condition of the European colonies ; tut for all this, and much more that is interesting and in etiuctive we must refer our readers to the Mag azine itself, our present purpose being simply to bring under notice that part of the critique in which the reviewer records his opinion of the particular system of coJonization known as the ' Wakefield system.' It will be very pleasing to our fellow-colonists who have long been labouring in opposition to this system, to find that they are not alone in their opinions, but that at length support is given to them, and by the sustaining hand of old Christopher North.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 April 1843

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12, 1843. - . ? ? - We are minded this week to write something concerning the state and prospects of this colony, and to enumerate some of the peculiar advan tages which Western Australia has to offer to the notice of the emigrant. We usually address ourselves to the inhabitants of this colony, but the following remarks are designed more parti cularly for our friends in England, to whom we hope they will offer some encouragement. In the face of an opposition originated and continued by persons interested in the success of ether places, this colony is making rapid strides to advancement, not only in the favourable opi nion of parties without, but in the more substan tial good of well-founded internal prosperity; and we look forward with confidence to the time when the advantages we have to offer to the emi grant will be acknowledged to be at least equal to those of other colonies, which, with even fewer merits, have received a far higher degree of encouragement.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 April 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — Being strongly impressed with the necessity of establishing without delay an export trade, I beg to call your attention to the follow ing plan for the exportation of our timber, which has been submitted to, and approved by, a spe cial committee appointed by the Agricultural Society to investigate the subject, and has been honoured by the warm sanction of his Excellency the Governor. 1 have also laid it before most of the experienced members of the trade, and have met with their fullest concurrence. I conceive that the species of Eucalyptus, tvhich we call mahogany, contains so many valuable and peculiar qualities, that it is likely, if steadily and judiciously introduced to the at tention of the British and foreign public, to find an almost unlimited demand ; and it may be truly said that our supply will equal that demand. I propose to introduce it not as a mahogany, which it is not; nor as a substitute for mahogany, which it ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. My dear Editor, — In the list of accounts forwarded to the office of the Treasurer tor pay ment during the month of March, published in the last Government Gazette, I observe the fol lowing curious item : — ' Messrs. Shenton & Co., Frocks and Caps for Rotlnest' ! Now what necessity there can be for clothing the island of Rottnest in frocks and caps 1 can not possibly conceive. I look upon it as a most useless expenditure of calico, and really, Sir, when so many demands are made upon our re venue, I hope you will not allow such wanton extravagance to pass unnoticed. I suppose we may shortly expect to find ' Arthur's Head' fitted with a comfortable woollen night-cap, and a great coat of the last fashion provided for ' Garden Island/' while ' Carnac' may walk over and visit the ' Mew-Stone' in a tight-fitting pair of top-boots. I like to see the paternal care of government exhibited on all occasions, but I think you will agree with me that it woul...
