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

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — If you should deem these cursory ob servations worthy a place in your columns, I shall feel obliged, and hope they may not be un interesting to some of your readers, at such a time when ' the heavens declare the glory of the Lord, and the firmament showeth forth His handy works.' That mind must indeed be con fined in the most narrow limits that feels n6 excitement at the glorious scene displayed in the heavens when, the curtain of night begins to spread her sable mantle on the western sky ; and that heart must be callous as the flinty rock, and cold as the polar ice, that feels no desire to look from 'nature up to nature's God,' or feels none of that glow of holy, yet humble admiration, that compels it to exclaim, 'What is man that Thou art mindful of him !' Although I possess but little of the high and valued knowledge of mathe matics, or am I conversant with the mind- ex- panding science of astronomy, yet I doubt not but you will pardon my ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 April 1843

MISCELLANEOUS. All the world knows that Mr. Charles Dick kENs the celebrated author of ' The Pickwio Papers,' and 'Nicholas Nickleby,' has lately paid a visit to the United States, and that he has written a book about America and the Americans. Mr. Dickens work has not yet made its appear ance in this colony, and thinking it likely that our readers will be anxious to know something of its contents, we have extracted the following critical notice of it from the London Atlas : — 'English authors are in every direction perambu lating the world— and it would be no incivility, if we mvt one of them at ^levr York «r St. Pe tersburgh, to ask him or her, as the case might be, for whose house do you travel?

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XVI. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 April 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XVI. To the Editor of the Inquirer. SIR, — I finished my last letter with an ac- count of the tree-growing Acacias of the York district; and there is a species of the genus, which grows to the size of a small tree, common in the Vasse district, and remarkable for bearing annually a large quantity of galls on the leaves, similar to the galls of the oak. As the astrin- gent properties of this family of plants may be concentrated in the galls produced on the leaves of this plant, as they are in the oak, it is well worth while trying experiments to ascertain if such is the case ; it would be very easy to collect them in large quantities, and they may probably form a valuable export. One of our most re-   markable species of Acacia, sometimes called the black wattle, the Acacia Decurrens of Ventenat, is a small tree of very rapid growth, with beauti- ful double pinnate leaves, found near permanent springs of water. It has long been ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 April 1843

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 1843. Several remarks have lately been made in this journal upon the propriety of sending an ex- ploring party into the interior, and especially of tracing to its source the River "Lefroy," lately   discovered bv that gentleman and Mr. H, Lan- dor. Although the local government does not appear at all inclined to take the matter up, yet it has been enthusiastically entertained by one or two individuals, so much so indeed as to induce them to aim at nothing less than penetrating to the centre of New Holland. For our own parts, we should rest quite contented, for the present, if an expedition were fitted out with the more humble view of tracing the Lefroy up to its source, and we allude to this now the more par-   ticularly in consequence of what we have lately read concerning the progress of discovery in other parts of this continent. In a No. of the South Australian Magazine for January of this year we find a very interest- ing paper by ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr. Editor, — Permit me, through your columns, to endeavour to elicit an explanation of the following announcements made in the Go vernment Gazette: — Fresh mrut for Champion. Timber fctr do. Tnr bu-! junk for do. Now, Sir, who is the Champion ? U it your able arid distinguished correspondent ?'Coloiii- cus .'' If it be not, certainly no one better deserves the title ; l.ut supposing It to It1, when did he become entitled to a ration of meat? and what on earth can ' Culouicus' .warjt with tar, junk, rope, and oakum ? A little further down in the list I find a more startling declaration— namely, that the law of imprisonment has been, by some mysterious pro cess, extended to inanimate matter ; that a very valuable article of consumption, and one hitherto more sinned against than sinning, has been convicted of some crime, and sentenced to a period of confinement in her Majesty's gaol. I know not how otherwise to interpret the official n...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 April 1843

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1843. Bv the late arrivals, we have news from Van Diemen's Land down to the 14th March ; from Sydney to February 10th ; and from South Aus tralia to February 18th. From the public papers, as well as from private letters, we gather that all these colonies have been. and still are. suffering unexampled distress, owing principally to the low price of every description of prod uce, and unless some change takes place in this re spect, the distress will be even more pressing and general. At Launceston fine owes were readily purchaseable at 5s. each ; cattle in proportion ; flour was fetching about £11 per ton, and wheat 4s. per bushel. In Sydney the prices were something higher. We are not among those who think that the high price of agricultural produce is any test of the true prosperity of a country, but where the price is far below the cost of production distress must prevail very general ly. In Launceston, it would appear that the distress of the agriculturists is...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 May 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor oj the Inquirer. Dear Str, — Some years ago I was a witness to the very strange powers exercised by the ' Irish Horse Charmers,' as they were called, by which a remarkably vicious beast in the course of half an hours tete a tete with the Charmer was rendered as docile as a dog. He followed his tamer uj: and duwn the ride, ami though still dif ficult to manage by others, yet. lie was so far broken as to allow a saddle to be placed on his back. Of course, the Charmer made a profound mystery of his method, and many and strange have been the surmises thereon. The matter is now cleared up, as will appear on perusal of the following extract : — ' Thk Secket of Irish Horse-Charmebs Disco vered. — For more than half a. century the family of the Snllivans, near Chsrlevilic, in Ireland, have had the rep« utation of possessing a secret north knowing, and which every horse-jockey in the country was anxious to learn.

The proprietors have made many sacrifices in order to establish and carry on this journal ; but however desirous they may be to continue a con cern in which, as the founders, they feel a sort of fatherly interest, and which they also believe to be an advantage to the colony, yet they cannot be supposed to consent to do so at a lo...
