THE ENQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 June 1843

WED !T ESI) AY, JUNE 14,1843. Tug session of the Legislative Council will open to-inorrow, and it will not be out of place to say a few words preparatory to this important occasion. The direct business of the eesBion, so far at least as it can be judged of from the published list of the bills to be introduced, is not likely to bo heavy ; but in the present arduous circum stances of the colony, we trust that the Council Mill not limit itself to the consideration of mat ters directly introduced by the government, but ?will of itself originate proceedings, and institute inquiry into the several matters that demand the attention of our legislators. We look upon the meeting of the Legislative Council as by. far the most important of our local events. Through it a'onfi csn the (K^ony over l-e snS^ior.tly benrd.

G. is informed that the letter signed ' Vindi cator,' to which he alludes, was refused inser tion in this journal because the writer did not think proper to furnish us with his name. We do not choose to give publicity to assertions niade by an unknown correspondent. In reply to X, who wi&he* us to advertise our readers of the day fixed for the departure of vessels, we have only to say that we do so wlven ever their time of sailing, and their destination, can be ascertained. T'his is, however, very rarely the case, as the masters and agents seem to know nothing about it thetnselves until with in a day or two of tlte time of sailing, when it is too late to be of any use to our more distant readers.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 June 1843

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21,1843. The arrival of the Water Witch from Port Adelaide has not put us in possession of much South Australian news, the mail from that place having been transferred from the Water Witch to the Victoria at King George s Sound. The Victoria (a vessel lately purchased by Mr. J3elches) left King George's Sound for this port 4ft hours before the Water Witch, and it is rather strange that she should have bern so long delayed. She cannot now be expected until the prest'tit N.W. gale shall have blown itself out. The Victorias cargo is principally flour, atid Mr. Curtis' vessel, the Vixen, which was to fol low the Water Witch from Port Adelaide in a few days, will bring more of this commodity. In consequence of the non-arrival of tho Viriorio, we have no letters from King George's ?onnd, but we learn from the master of the }\\;ier TH-'r/i that H.M.S. North Star, Captain Sir Everiwd Home, had touched at the Sound, and gone on to Sydney. The North Star was expected hero, and...

The results of the past year have given proof of the colony's stability, and, without wishing to draw invidious or jealous comparisons between the present state of this and of other settlements, I cannot avoid congratulating you upon your having escaped the difficulties and distresses which they have had to encounter Your trans actions have been carried on without confusion and in security ; your credit has remained unim paired ; and we have been startled by no succes sion of ruinsus sacrifices following upon a sud den and general fall in the value of property.

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Mr. Editor, — Having given the citizens such warning as I thought humanity and a due con sideration for the effeminacy of their habits required, of their approaching inevitable reforma tion; when either the prudence or the poverty of the country settlers, withdrawing from the towns men the means of support, must force them into industry; I proceed to address myself to those who ovght to he ' The Colony' ; who are ' The Settlers'' ; and with whom alone rests the fate of all now living in this land; the agricultural population.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. June 22, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 June 1843

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Jvne 02, 1843. His Excellency moved the first reading of a bill to impose certain duties on imported spiritu ous liquors, wine, and tobacco, the object ot which was to ascertain whether an additional re venue could not be raised. The bill having been read, His Excellency signified his intention of moving the suspension of the standing ordeis, and that the bill should be read a second time that day. He mentioned this now in order that if any member had any objection to such a course, he might have time to consider it. His Excellency then moved the first reading of a bill to appoint certain places for the landing of goods within the limits of townsitcs ; and a to of u bill for the regulation of boatmen, and the liccnsingofboats. It was proposed by this latter bill, first, to get a certain control over boats with re ference to the prevention of smuggling, and, second, to place boatmen under certain restric tions, so as to provide against the Ios6 or injury of the p...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer:* Sir, — I perceive in a letter from the Pro tector of Natives for the Perth district, an attempt to deny the validity of the conclusion at which I arrived in my communication of the 7th ; while at the same time he admits the pre mises in their full extent. His conclusion was drawn from a string of replies confusedly given to a set of queries hur riedly propounded ; in which colloquy, the indi vidual interrogated considered herself accused, from the tenor of the inquiries, in some measure of neglect. My representation was a plain deduction from actual and daily observation, and a knowledge of the facts and circumstances of the case. This statement was honest and conscienlious, and my inference legitimate and decisive. I am extremely sorry to be obliged, on n*y own account, to reiterate the direct conclusion, which, in the advocacy of a public charitabin cause, truth and justice would not permit we to withhold. I beg to remain, Sir, Sincerely yours, G....

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 June 1843

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1843. Wjth reference to the notice that appears above, announcing a change in the proprietorship of this journal, we are anxiouB to say a few 'words to our subscribers and the public, in order that they may understand to what extent they are likely to be affected by the change, and what inttuence it will have on the future conduct of The Inquirer. In other parts of the world, a change of pro prietorship is very often indicative of a change of principles ; i| usually involves with it a change in the management and character of the paper, for new proprietors most commonly usher in a new editor. In our own case however no such radical change has been effected. The proprietor ship has simply passed into the hands of one who has from the first had undisputed control over the management of this journal, and who will still continue to conduct it with the same impartial and independent spirit that he hopes has hitiierto characterised it; upon the same principles, in shor...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.'1 Sir, — I have just received your paper, of the 14th instant, wherein I observe a letter signed ' A Storekeeper,' commenting upon my remarks of the previous week. I shall now trouble you with a few words by way of reply, although I do not consider the arguments of ' A Storekeeper' to have been of a character to render such reply positively necessary on my part. My unknown friend, — I will not call him my opponent, — characterises rny statements as ' ab surd and ridiculous.' They may have been so, but I would have him recollect on what they were founded. Jn treating of the extravagant prices charged by retail- dealers, I spoke on the authority of evidence given in a public court of justice, and however ' absurd and ridiculous' these prices may appear to 'A Storekeeper,' and however iniquitous to myself, and to those who think with me, 1 beg him to remember that they were sworn to by several of his brethren. With every inclination to believe in the si...

To tftt Editor oftltt Inquirer. Sir, — It is with much pleasure, on reading your paper of the 31st May, I perceive that one of the great, the fundamental reasons for many of the difficulties which the working classes, the small farmers, nay, even the large farmers, have had to encounter for some time, has at last been touched on, and that by ' Quivis.' Far be it from me to assert that ' Colonicus,' ' Mentor,' &c, have not handled their subjects with credit to themselves, and, I hope, benefit to their country ; but I must maintain that ' Quivis' has hit a nail upon the head winch heretofore , has been permitted to remain undisturbed, and ' which has been the cause of much distress to nearly all classes of the community. You will doubtless see that I allude to the immense profits on storekeeping, and the exor bitant prices charged for every necessary article. In consequence of considerable importations of cattle, sheep, and horses, and by the absence of , *. capitalists to cre...
