To the Editor of the Inquirer.

CIVIL COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., Commissioner. HARIETT LEWIS, widow, plaintiff. F. MANGLES & Co. defendants. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 31 May 1843

CIVIL COURT. Before W. S. Mackie, Esq., Commissioner. Harriet Lewis, widow, plaintiff. F. Mangles & Co. defendants. Mr. Nash and Mr. E. W. Landor appeared for the plaintiff, aud Mr. John Schoales and Messrs. Lawrence and Vigors for defendants. The action was brought to recover damages, laid at £300, for non-performance of a contract en- tered into in July 1841 by Mr. John Stringer, their agent, with the plaintiff. It appeared from the evidence, that Mr. Stringer in the name of his principals gave a receipt to the plaintiff for £58, part of which was a bill for £35 drawn by plaintiff on her fcther, Mr. T. T. Benningfield, in England. In consideration of this sum, he undertook that goods to double the amount, according to a list supplied to him. should be sent out from England by the earliest opportunity. The order for the goods and the hill on Mr. Benningfield were to be forwarded by the Trusty, which   sailed on or immediately after the 17th July,  ...

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 June 1843

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 1843. The Inquirer of this week appears without the customary middle sheet. At a reason when all Western Australia makes common hoiidiv, Avc assume that our readers will not grudge the opportunity of relaxation that has thus Leen silForded to ourselves and to our compositors, the latter of whom, especially, know but little cessa tion from labour from one year's end to the other, ;jnd who, while at work themselves, are con stantly providing amusement for the public The insertion of several communications is de ferral ; among the resr, a reply to ''Qtiivis/'and another to a letter in the Perth Gazette signed ' A Bushman.' Our own usual leading matter is likewise deferred. The past week has been one of bustle and ex citement, of amusement rather than of business. The first of the present month was the fourteenth anniversary of the foundation of this colony, and on this, ns on other similar occasions, it was kept up as a high festival, expressive of the general joy of...

THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 June 1843

THE REGATTA. The 2nd or June being the day fixed for this favourite sport, the jetty from which the boats were to start, was long before noon crowded with anxious spectators. The bill of fare was much more promising than that of any previous Regatta and if the result did not quite come up to the anticipations of the public, the fault is by no meant to be attributed to the Stewards, whose exertions throughout were most praise worthy. The first race was for whale boats, for which were entered — Mr. Burgess' Radical .... 1 Mr. Mews's Thomas .... 2 Mr. Curtis's Pilot 0   The course was twice round Perth water a distance of about 10 miles, which was pulled by the winning boat in 54 1/2 minutes. The race was a remarkably good one for the first round, being closely contested between the Radical and the Pilot, the former passing the stewards boat less than half a boat's length ahead. To the surprise of every one the crew of the Pilot here pulled off and refused to go round the ...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 June 1843

At a very late hour we received the following from the Rev. G. King. We have not space for s word of comment. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — I was much grieved to find that a misunderstand ing of the arrangements for the charity sermon published in your paper of the 24th May, should have prevented the carrying out of this benevolent design, as the object for which it is intended is important, and pressingly urgent. The boys in the native school in Fremantle are now in a state of almost absolute nudity, and the building in which they are otherwise happily and kindly sheltered, is not sufficicntly wafer-fast; owing in some measure to this doubly deplorable evil, one of our little scholars died on the 29th ultimo, and to pluck the remaining tremblers from exposure to similar consequences, we are necessitated to throw ourselves on the benevolence of the Christian public, and we feel assured, our appeal will not be in vain. We have expended already for the articles of rice and ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 June 1843

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Mr. Editor, — In proceeding to redeem my pledge by admonishing the next class of our bro ther colonists, I wish to make a few remarks up- on the position we occupy and the object for which I write. When I say that all or any have done wrong, I am not to be charged with a love of recrimination. If we were a ruined colony, I should not indulge in recrimination; because   when the evil has come, such a course destroys the sole chance of recovery; it wastes the time,   awakens the energies, and sours the tempers of all parties. If the evil had arrived, Mentor would not utter a word of blame, even where it was due ; but because the evil has not yet come ; because it may be prevented; because the danger   may be turned into the most powerful instrument and source of future wealth and happiness, I do not hesitate to apply a painful, offensive, remedy to our common faults. I now address myself to the middling class of cit...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 June 1843

MISCELLANEOUS. We extract from a late No. of the Calcutta Englishman, the following remarks on the lute Commercial treaty with China, and the difficul ties of a final arrangement. — ' In reading over the official papers lately received from China, it has struck us that more time will be required to complete the necessary arrangements for regulating the trade of the new ports than is consistent with the impatient spirit of British commercial enterprise. Already we hear of the stimulus given to the manufacturing districts of En gland by the news of peace, aud it is therefore to be in ferred that purchases have been made and that shipments are already on their way to takcadvantage of the apparent opening which the recent treaty aft'ords. But in the se cond article of the treaty published by Sir H. Pottin^er, it is provided that Consuls or Superiutendeate of the British commerce shall be appointed at each of five ports; aud the Imperial Commissioners in agreeing to this say that till En...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 June 1843

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — As a friend of Captain Grey's, I might be told I should have treated the virulent, untrue and cowardly letter in the Perth Gazette signed ' A Bushman,' with the contempt it merits, but fearing that some statements made therein might mislead the opinions of those who know not Captain Grey, I shall trouble you with a few re marks. The virulence of this letter is apparent — its untruth I will show — its cowardice is shown by making an attack on the character of a man who has no opportunity of defending it- But what is it that has awakened the ill-nature of 'A Bushman V What mighty crime has been committed? What eulogy has been passed upon Captain Grey detrimental toother pariies? Why this, simply this. The editor of the Inquirer has perfa'xed the magical word ' illustrious' to Capt. Grey's name; whereas in the sage opinion of ' A Bushman' it ought to have Been ' notori ous.' ' A Biwhman' acknowledges ' he has some doubt on his mind as to the Grey a...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. NOTICES OF UNREPORTED TRIALS. No. 1. Sir, — Having heard a good deal of the sur prising intelligence, and laborious perplexity dis played by the learned and ingenious pleaders en gaged hebdomadally in the court of Requests, I was induced lately to repair thither for the pur pose of taking a lesson in logic, and of obtaining a more clear insight into those forensic subtleties which are so delightful in themselves and so in dicative of a superior nature. When I entered the court I found the learned Commissioner patiently inclining his auricles to the rhetoric of a female defendant, who was endeavouring by an elaborate argument, raised upon an elegant struc ture of ingenious sophisms, to prove to the court that she was not indebted to the plaintiff in the manner and to theamounT-aserred, forasmuch as the said plaintiff had on divers occasions borrowed the frying-pan of the defendant, and used the same for the poaching of eggs, to the grievous disparagemen...

CORRESPONDENCE, To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.1' Sm, — So much of misapprehension, prejudice, and antipathy, existing in the public mind of this colony on the subject of the Wakefield system of colonization, will you permit me to give your readers some account of the principal features of iis theory, and of the defects of its execution in ihe two or three instances in which hitherto it has been attempted to construct colonies undent, in-Epite of the popular clamour now everywhere ioud against it, and of the much more formidable danger it is now exposed to from certain indica tions that its sound theory will shortly be sup planted in the minds of our rulers and the public at home by some other less sound but more novel 6cheiue. Tne theorem is — Istly — That by a judicious pre-survey of the site of a proposed new colony, provided that site be endowed with moderate natural advantages, such, a sum of money may and will be raised by the sale of town allotments and well-selected plots u...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer1' Dear Sir, — Your correspondent Quivis highly approves of your remarks and those of Mentor, respecting the reckless want of economy of a large portion of our community. Instead of further enlarging on this fruitful source of our present difficulties he directs at once his whole force of abuse against our unfortunate and de voted storekeepers. If his purpose is to anni hilate them at once I, Mr. Editor, being one of them, am not going to be extinguished altogether without a struggle. However ridiculous or absurd your corres pondents remarks may appear to those who are better acquainted with the real state of things it is calculated to mislead our worthy shippers at home, in the belief that they are untairly and dis honestly dealt with in the very wide difference that must exist between his statement attd the net profits we return.

To the Editor of the Inquirer, Sir, — Following up my last, in which I show ed up the retail shop-keepers and their profits, 1 wish to suggest to you, and through you to our sagacious legislators, a plan by which to diminish the evil. If the credit given to settlers were es timated by the value of their goods only, they would not be allowed to get into debt to such a degree as at present. The shop-keepers say, as I before 6aid, ** we don't get paid,' but though they do notjalways get paid by the debtor, they get paid by the sheriff. Everything that can be done to destroy the credit system and introduce ready-money-payments is a gain : and although credit be the soul of mercantile speculation, yet vre have no business wif h such a soul. If a num ber of folks choose to come and settle hereto trade let them do so. Let them try their wits against frenchmen and Yankees, or even against the green and simple Sydney boys, but we have no thing to do with trade. Do'nt let us even waste time w...
