THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 17,1843 [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 May 1843

? WEDNESDAY, MAY 17,1841). ? We had intended commenting at some length on the communication in this day's journal signed ?' Mentor,' but we have not space, this week, mere than sufficient to call our readers' particular attention to it, and briefly to reiterate some of the leading arguments. The subject that our con tributor has undertaken to handle is one with k the vast importance of which we have ourselves f been forcibly struck ; indeed ' Mentor,' in giv ,? ing his views as he doe«, is only supporting the position that we have now for some time been seeking to establish. We hail this addition to our forces with infinite satisfaction, for we are quite convinced that upon a right understanding of the question that has been mooted, depends in a great measure the success of the present generation of Western Australian colonists; the which right understanding is the more likely to result from the labours ot many in explanation, than from the exertions of a few. The great point fo whi...

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XVIII. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 May 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XVIII. To the Editor of the "Inquire.r"   SIR, — Ever since the illustrious traveller Hum- bolt published his admirable treatise " De Dis- tributione Plantarum Geographica," the distri- bution of plants on the earth's surface has been a subject much attended to by botanists in various countries. The Rev. J. S. Henslow, M.A., Professor of Botany in the University of Cam-   bridge, in his catalogue of British plants, besides 114 species or varieties which he consi- ders ought to be expunged from the British flora, marks with a cross 119 species or varieties now mostly common in England, which he sup- poses have been introduced by the agency of man ; and in my opinion the professor might at least have doubled the number of the latter; in- deed to the British botanist who is also a practical cultivator of plants, it is very evident that many plants found as weeds in the cultivated fields are not only introduced by the ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 May 1843

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sin, — I read with very great eagerness the interesting speculations of Jar. Bun, published in a late uumber of your paper. 1 think it may be worth our while to curry out those views an far as they regard our own colony. Let any one examine the nmp of Australia, and he will be siruck with one very singular feature — namely, the absence of any considerable running river discharging its waters on the west ern ami southern coasts. There is not one rivtr worthy of the name fiom the Glenelg of Govern or Grey to the Mumunbidgee. It will also he seen that there it* a tract of country marked t-s very desolate and barren cropping out, it 1 may so speak, on the north-west coast above bhark'g Bay ; we know that tins desolate tract extends to the eastward of our colony along its v» hole eastern boundary. Now is there any reason to suppose that this barren land, one* crossed, would expose to our view a belter couutry ? I think there ara many. If it be true that the...

THE LARGEST VESSEL IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 May 1843

THE LAltGEST VESSEL IN THE WOULD. Sonic particulars respecting this iron steam-bbip, the largest vessel in tlie world, now building by Hie Uie«t Western Steum-ship Company tit Bristol, and which will be ready for sea iu the early part of next your, can nut i'uil to be iuteresthitf. The Great Western steam-vessel com menced running between liiistol uud New York in tue baling of l«3rf, and has continued her voyages ever since, ni'ffii ton nnrirr the most u-herse circumstances, with a speed and regularity unequalled. The Great Western Company, iu order to maintain the high ground which they had attained, uud taking a-lvauta^e of the improvements made known by scientific research, resolved to build an iron steain-ship of such vast dimensions and power hh should as much surpass the Great Western as that vessel had itself surpassed everything previously aiiuat.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 24,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 May 1843

WEDNESDAY, MAY 24, 1843. Our worthy friend ' Mentor' comes forth again this week with some more of his, it may be, unpalatable, but still most wholesome truths, and fearlessly administers correction to the folly, now most rife amongst us, of personal extrava gance, and the desire of appearing what we really are not. in uiis eany eiage ui me |Hwwui»f, we advise our readers that if they look to have their failings glossed over^they.will be deceived ; neither ' Mentor' nor ourselves are at all in clined to be lenient to the glaring evils of a system out of which so many of our most press ing difficulties proceed, and which, if allowed to continue dominant, will effectually prevent tha healthy progress of the colony. We shall there fore not hesitate to permit this system to be exposed in all its naked deformity, however ill auch exposure may agree with the feelings, or even apparent hiterests^ of individuals. In his second letter, ' Mentor' has referred more particularly to the labourin...

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XIX. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 May 1843

ON THE BOTANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER XIX. To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   DEAR SIR, — I sent you some observations on certain plats, now naturalizedt which we know have been introduced into Western Australia by the agency of man, and I now send you a few observations on plants which are likely soon to be lost to the flora of our adopted country by the same agency, however unwillingly it may be ex- erted. The European botanists generally say but little on that subject, although we know that several plants recorded by Dillenius, Hudson, &c., as natives of England, and by Lightfoot as   natives of Scotland, are not now to be found ; but the habitats given for particular plants by the first writers on botany were generally so indefinite, and the idea that certain plants may have been admitted as natives of England or Scotland en- tertained on such insufficient grounds, as render it very difficult to come to a satisfactory conclu- sion on the su...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 May 1843

WEDNESDAY, MAY 31,1843. In another part of this day's journal will be found a letter signed ' A nearly ruined Settler,' the writer of which objects against 6ome remarks that have lately appeared in our columns on the influences that have produced the present finan cial anJ commercial crisis, and also against the remedy we have suggested for their correction. There is, after all, not much difference be tween us. Our correspondent has erroneously supposed that the reformation we have recom mended in the habits and expenditure of our brother settlers, is held up by us as the only sanative, as the general panacea for all our evils ; on the contrary, it is only one of the many reme dial agencies that must be in operation before the body politic can be in a sound state. But it is one in the working of which we have every con fidence, end we have therefore applied it first, intending .to suggest others as we go on, so as to meet, it possibie, every point of the case. We contend that the re...

IN THE CIVIL COURT. WALTERS V DRING. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 May 1843

IN THE CIVIL COURT. WALTERS V DRINQ. Before His Honour the Commissioner, and a Special- Jury. This was an action by the plaintiff, a passenger on beard the Janet from London, against the defendant the master of such vessel, to recover damages for breach of contract. The damages were laid at .£1000. Mr. Schoales, and Messrs. Lawrence and Vi gors appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. Nash and Mr. E. W. Landor for the defendant. Plea, the general issue. In support of the plaintiffs case it was shown that he had, at the request of defendant, entered into a bargain for the conveyance of himself, bis goods, and certain of his friends, from London to Swan River, on board the Janet ; and that an agreement had been made between them whereby the defendant was to furnish to plaintift and his friends certain accommodations on board the vessel, and a certain quantity, and quality of pro visions during the voyage.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 May 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir, — I have been greatly pleased with the articles that have lately appeared in your paper on the condition and prospects of Western Aus tralia, as they* stand affected, by the position of the neighbouring colonies, and warning us that such as is their condition, so also will he our - own, unless, learning wisdom from others' mis fortunes, we take measures to avoid the evils which appear to have overwhelmed our neigh bours. 1 have also read with extreme satisfac tion the admirable letters of ' Mentor,' and it is to the subject of these that my own observations are intended more particularly to apply. Mentor finds his chief grief in the ruinous ex penditure of my brother settlers in foreign arti cles of luxury, and complains that they fritter away the mutiny among the shopkeepers that might be so much more profitably employed in improving their farms, or in advancing the gene ral projects oi the colony. I consider this charge as perf...
