TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856

Ho tbe Editor or 'The Ibqbibbb JUBf Oommzbcxax. News.' SIB,/— The Total Abstinence Society of Pert*; that seemed to flourish some months ago^-if wo- ? may judge from appearances — -has almost ceased to be. How is Hast Has oar community become entirely a sober one ? Is there not now the ne cessity for such a Society, or will the extra duty on spirits have the effect? I think not. But as to the present state of tiiis Society- Where is that Chairman or President? Is he dead or turned out of office? Where now the Public Meetings, tbe Monthly Pamphlet and papers? Where the useful and entertaining speeches given at those meetings; and all the interesting anec dotes we sometimes heard at them ? The champions who came forward so boldly at one time, have they left the colony, or did keeping the pledge prove an injury to their health ? Some reason there must be for the present state of things. The members have involved /themselves by building a hall ; this cannot make any differ ence in their...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856

'To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — I read a paragraph in your paper of the 2nd instant with no small surprise. You state that an official of some conse quence has returned from a trip through the Eastern districts, and has reported that the settlers are enamoured with the recent legislation. It is well for the said official, however accurate his judgment and independent his thoughts and actions, that he had the caution not to mention the words ' York district,' or perhaps some people in the said district might be ill-natured enough to insinuate that he under took this trip for some other motive than to purchase horses for the police. But, fearing His kxcellencyor the public might be deceived by the statement of this highly independent and influential gentleman, I assure them that as far as my information goes (and I natter myself that I have, as much opportunity of judging as the aforesaid offi cial) the statement has not the slightest foundation; at least, a...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. Mb. Editor, — With much reluctance I am compelled to request you to contradict the statement contained in the report of the Committee of the Toodyay Agricultural So ciefy, held at Northam, a short time since. The charge brought against me at that meeting by the Chairman, (Mr Dempster,) is not warranted in fact. That gentleman knows that I have never laid claim to one essay; and I now challenge him to prove the truth of his assertion. Well might the Committee and gentlemen, then present, express themselves disgusted with regard to the absurd idea (such as I never enter tained for one moment) ' that because Mr Carter had liberally presented the amount of his Prize to the Society, I could claim the first prize.' If I had done this, I de served to be considered the most presump tuous and unreasonable character in this or in any other colony. The Committee would have shewn better sense by calling for my correspondence with the Secretary ...

COLONIAL NEWS. South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856

COLONIAL NEWS. South Australia Br the Swan we have received files of South Australian papers to the 30th May. The state of the colony, from all accounts, does not appear so flourishing us could be wished, emigration to the sister settlement of Vistoria going on to some extent A correspondent under date 29th May, states : — ** The Murray River timber is quite a failure, .and the search for it entails a loss to the company; wood of any great size being very scarce on the banks of the river. A contract has been, or will be, entered into for a thousand loads of Jarrah at £10 5s. per load. The Gawler Town Railway is progressing rapidly, and we are to have a line to die Murray. Your timber, therefore, is likely to have a market here for some time to come. -* The members of the popular party have got themselves into a scrape wjth the public, in conse quence of the starvation system they adopted. They feel they have got themselves into a hobble, and are trying their best to back out, and sm...

Dftsallaneous. Austalian Wine. — The samples of Aus tralian wine at the Paris Exhibition have e«a'iied special commendation; bat ' Soif.' appealing to the Times, objects, that hither to the Australians have only cultivated the vine c?i amateur — producing samples that might be gauged by gallons, not wholesale supplies fur the driuk of a people, to be gauged by hogsheads, pipes, and Guts: it is, he says, horticulture, not wine-growing. Now we must always liave samples first where any new product is to be introduced; and the success of some of the leading Aus - trahan horticultui isls wiil gradually spread over plains which seem destined to the nur ture of a British Bacchus. Then, perhaps, we shall have the wines of Australia coming here in pipes. Not that it follows: our im port of Italian wines is small compared to that of Spanish or French. The growth of the vine, however, would cultivate in Aus tralia something besides a pleasant and pic turesque drink for the table. The land of t...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856

TASMANIA. The people of Hobart Town have been again ex cited for a few hours, by a report that large quanti ties of gold had been found at FingaL One of our merchants received a letter from that district, saying that some men who have been digging therefor some time had sunk a deep hole, and on coming upon rock bad broken through that and then found about half an ounce. This is the extent of tbe discovery. The people of Tasmania certainly stand in need of something to raise their spirits. Potatoes and onions, which have of late years been exported in large quantities, at very high prices, are almost unsaleable, while wheat and flour are as high here as iu the neighbouring colonies. For timber there is some demand, but the quantity exported now falls far short of what it used to be. Steam communication with Swan Port, and tbe eastern coast generally, has enabled the settlers in that district to send consider able quantities of apples to town, most of which have been sent to Melbourne...

The Newspaper Press—Its Influence and Character—The "Times" and the "Illustrated London News." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856

The Newspaper Press— Its Influence and Character— The*' Times' and the ' Illustrated London News*' [From the ' Edinburgh Review.'! But if the daily and weekly press deserves its power on tbe score of talent, it merits it on tbe ground of character no less. On this head our conviction, which we do not he* sitate to express strongly, runs directly counter to the common and thoughtless lan guage of the day. In no respect does the journalism of the present etand out more distinguished than the past—- and the news paper press of England from that of every other land — than its freedom from all im pure and corrupt influences. All charges to the contrary we hold to be utterly with out foundation. The position and character of the men connected with all its respectable organs would of themselves be sufficient to set such sinister accusations at defiance. That it is never open to unworthy influences of any kind would be too much to assert; that personal predilection or personal ani mosity ma...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. STB,, — As an old settler, and a sincere well wisher to the prosperity of the colony at large, and one who is not biassed by party feelings, I shall feel obliged by 3-our giving publicity to the follow ing remarks: — His Excellency Governor Kennedy says that he is not a man of ' half measures.' Very shortly after the arrival of His Excellency he insinuated, nay, he expressed his belief that we were a parcel of drunkards, that we have been in tbe habit of drinking strong waters too abun dantly, and have thereby engendered a moral can eer, the spreading of which he (Governor Ken nedy) proposes to prevent by a new Bill, in which, as a means to the desired o;.-1, ) -3 declares no con ditionally-pardoned man shall sell strong liquors, (or drink them either, I guess, if His Excellency had his own way), but will permit other persons to sell them. Will this prevent drunkenness ? Again, in this new Bill for the furtherance of His Excellency'...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — Beiug an old settler cf some 22 years standing in this outraged place, (Al bany,) and being, moreover, a man who does not complain of Governors or Laws, unless, as in the present instance, they are without reason, I should consider I was wanting in duty to my family and the co lony at large, but more particularly this place, Albany, did I not raise my voice against the sayings and doings at Head Quarters, as published in your hist month's papers. Now, Sir, it so happens that five weeks pass before we can commu nicate with Head Quarters and receive an answer; therefore, as in this case, a law is made and in force before we know any thing about it; therefore, whatever I or any one else say about it cannot alter the law. But one of the lately made laws is so un reasonable that it must die a natural death. When I read that His Excellency Gover nor Kennedy has, in his place in Council, given utterance to such expressions as fol lo...

Quid verum atque decens, euro et rogo, et onatis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JULY 16, 1856. Whex we protested against the sweeping charges levelled at the colonists hy His Ex cellency, we left comparatively unnoticed his statements respecting the proceedings at Albany, never deeming it possible that he would endanger his reputation by asserting that which could'so easily, and would be so speedily contradicted. To make general charges is a safe proceeding, to select specially an object for misrepresentation is a hazardous experiment, unless the accuser is fully prepared to substantiate his statements. This hazardous step has been taken by the Governor; notcontent with the general charge of drunkenness — which could possibly be smoothed over (though in this particular instance the defence was but an aggrava tion of the offence) — he thought fit, in his capacity of President of the Council, to state positively that he had removed the depot at Albany because there were six public houses in i...

Queries from Albany, His Excellency in the course of the debate on the Public House Bill states, as reported by your contemporary — *? That he believed the infractions of the law sought to be prevented by the Closing Ordinance were caused through, the culpable carelessness of the authorities. If they had done ther duty, there never would have been any occasion for the same.' What instances of culpable neglect on the part of the authorities can His Excellency adduce in support of so grave a charge? ' That some considered any suppression of a pub lic house an infringement of the liberty of the sub ject, but he would shew that it had been prac tised before.' Does therefore His Excellency consider that previous practice nullifies the premises? if so, how? ' That at Albany are six public houses within 600 yards of tbe depot ; is it possible, under such circumstances, for any officer to keep a body of men under control.' Were there any instances of insubordina tion arising specially from ...

Two of these letters and a string of queries we publish iu to day's issue. The language of the letters was eo strong that we could not publish them without soft ening them down a little, and it is evident that the seders are excited and agitated to a great degree. Tiie following is an extract from a private letter, addressed by an influential and an old settler of Al bany to a gentleman in this town : — *? What can our worthy Governor mean by uttering such pare invention about what took place in Albany?
