THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 10,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 May 1843

WEDNESDAY, MAY 10, 1843. We propose briefly to conclude this week the reflections which we ventured to commence in our last number upon the condition and prospects of the colony. Nor do we pursue this theme merely from that pleasure which we naturally take in examining into the origin of existing cir cumstances, but from the hope that we may draw - public attention to the subject, and so excite a greater activity in the cause of the public weal. Independently however, of this motive, there is (to us, at least) a high degree of interest in the inquiry. We examine not only into our present actual condition, but we wish to show how it is that we have arrived at this state ; how it ought to have been avoided, and how it may still per haps be relieved. The argument on which we have proceeded was based upon the proposition, that the real prosperity of a colony depends upon the encouragement given to domestic industry : notwithstanding however the utmost efforts that way be made to forward...

MISCELLANEOUS. A PASSAGE FROM MARRYAT'S NEW NOVEL OF ' PERCIVAL KEKNE.' ' As we were running up we fell in with an American brig, and brought her to ; a boat was Kent for the cajiiii'm, who, when lie came on board, was interrogated by Captain Deliuar, as to his having seen or heard of any French vessel on that coast. As the conversation took place on the quarter-deck, and I was officer of the watch, I can repeat it. ''Well, replied the American through his nose, ' I reckon there is a Frenchman in these parts?' ''Have you fell in with her V inquired Capt. Delmar. ' ' Well, I may say I have, for I laid alongside of her in Cartagena when 1 was taking in my cargo of hides. You haven't such a thing as a spar as will make me a pole top-gallant mast, captain, have you V ' ' Is she large or small ?'

CORRESPONDENCE. ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XVII. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." SIR, — Of the natural order Euphorbiaceæ, we have a species of Euphorbia, with the habit and appearance of Viminaria Denudata, which grows on the banks of the Helena, near the Rocky Pass, aud on the Preston and Vasse rivers ; and we have a small prostrate Euphor- bia, found in the bed of the Avon and its tributary streams. The Euphorbias are well known to be     acrid poisons. The Phyllanthus Cygnorum of Hugel, a small glaucus-leaved, white-flowering shrub, is very common on the banks of the Swan. Of the natural order Rutaceæ, I have described one of our finest Western Australian plants in the journal I sent you of our journey to the South. The Boronia Spatulata of Lindley, a pretty and very fragrant plant, is abundant near the habitat I pointed out for Verticordia   Insignis on the road to the head of the Swan;   Boronia Viminea of L...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Silt, — Being deeply impressed with the vital, and, if we neglect them, the fatal, importance of the truths inculcated in your paper of the 3rd instant, I beg to lay belbre you some observa tions upon the circumstances in which our colony is now placed. In endeavouring to infuse into my brother colonists a practical conviction of the urgency of a new Hue and system of exer tion, I shall avoid as much as possible the di$~ pitted points of the day. I shall not allude to the proposed duty on corn, because the real merits of the case cannot fail to force themselves upon the understanding of both parties, on either view of the subject, ere long ; nor the proposed duty on imported stock, because I think much may be said on both sides. I shall also avoid all sub jects on which we agree, but wish to convince the British public ; as, tor instance, I shall leave untouched the great question of (he land regula tions and land-fund ; because I be...

GROSS MISREPRESENTATION.—COLONEL GAWLER'S HUMBUG. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 May 1843

gross misrepresentation. — coloxel gaw ler's humbug. To the Editor of the Inquirer. Dear Sir, — It must be in the recollection of many of your readers that some short time age, the ex-Governor of South Australia, Colonel Gawler, endeavoured, in a long and laboured statement, to prove — first, that his colony had done quite right in running in debt to the tune of a quarter of a million, next that he had done quite right in drawing for this sum, and lastly that even if the expenditure were wasteful, and the mode of payment unwarranted, still that it was no more than was done by every other colony, and therefore he ought to do so also. Not to advert to the fact of South Australia being a self-supporting colony, and that therefore the f precedents of government expenditure elsewhere * were not applicable to the case, I must however - object to the line of proof adopted by the gallant Colonel as being grossly false. The Colonel starts with stating that in 4 years and 4 months the expense...

A PASSAGE FROM MARRYAT's NOVEL OF PERCIVAL KEENE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 May 1843

A PASSAGE FROM MARRY AT's NOVEL OF PERC1 VAL KEENE. The second day after our return to Spithead, I was sent on shore in the cutter to bring off a youngster who was to join the ship ; he had never been to sea before ; bis name v»aB Green, and he was as green as a gooseberry. 1 took a dislike to him the moment that I saw him, because he hud a hooked nose and very small ferretty eyes. As we were pulling on board, he asked me a great many ques tions of all kinds, particularly about the captain and offi cers, and to amuse myself and the boat's crew, who were on the full titter, I exercised my peculiar genius for inven tion. ' At lust, after I bad given a character of the first lieu tenant, which made him appear a sort of murine ogre, he afked how it was I got on with him. ' ©, very well,' re plied I ; but I'm a freemason, and so is he; and he*6 never severe with a brother mason.' ' But how did he know you were a mason ?'
