CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 July 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr. Editor, — I am desirous to remove a misconception which appears to exist respecting my object in some of your correspondents' letters as well as the luminous and formidable manifesto of Tony Curtis, whereby he maketh it clear, that because he sells colonial mutton, the Perth maid servants do not wear silk stockings, nor the Swan gentlemen eat pottod bloaters ; and because he bakes foreign flour at Fremantle there are not too many shopkeepers in Perth. It happens — unluckily happens, since it is desirable to confine public attention to one evil' at a time — that some of your correspondents us 'Quivis,' 'Nemo,' &c, have opened a treraenddus are upon themisei ubie shopkeepers for exorbitant charges, just at the time that 1 was attacking, not the shopkeepers for charging great piotits, but the farmers for al lowing the shopkeepers to exist at all. I am not inclined to interfere in the war between the retail ers and their merc...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 5, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 July 1843

WEDNESDAY, JULY 5, 1843. It is our purpose here to give a short abstract of the two bills at present more immediately before tlie Council ; together with a few remarks that are suggested by tlie occasion. The bills we refer to are, first, the ' Bill to impose certain duties on imported spirituous liquors, and on wine and tobacco'; and, second, the 'Bill for the licensing of boatmen, and of boats.' The first of these appears to have been pretty generally misunderstood by our more distant readers, among whom the belief obtained that it was the intention of Government to increase the duties now payable on wines and tobacco; and indeed a petition from the York Branch of the Agricultural Society, praying thut such intention, as regarded tobacco, might not be persisted in, was presented by Mr Leoke at the last sitting of Council. The cause of this misunderstanding is easily traced. The public had long been inform ed that the duties on imported spirituous liquors would be increased, and on...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 July 1843

[ADVERTISEMENT.] To the Editor of the Inquirer. SIR, — The best answer to the absurdities which have appeared in your paper for the last two or three weeks under the signatures of Mentor and Quivis, reflecting most harshly upon the store keepers of this colony, will, I think, be found in the fact that I am now selling at my store at Fremantle, bread of the best kind at three-pence per pound, mutton at eight-pence, and all other articles, both imported and of colonial produce, equally cheap ; and I am willing to contract to supply any family in Fremantle with bread and meat at the above-named prices for 4 months from this date.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. June 29, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 5 July 1843

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. June 29, 1843. On the order of the day, which was for the second reading of the bill to impose duties on spirits, wine, and tobacco, being moved, G. Leake, Esq , rose to present a petition from the York Branch of the Western Australian Agricultural Society. The petition stated that lite society naa learnea wun mucn regret me in tention of the Government to increase the exist ing duty on tobacco, which was an article much required in the treatment of sheep for the scab ; and prayed generally that no such increase should be imposed, and also that inferior kinds of tobac co, intended to be applied in dressing sheep, should be allowed to come in duty free. In moving tha« the petition be read, the bon. member observed that he presented it to the Council in deference to the highly respectable body from which it had emanated, but he did not in any way concur in the prayer. In the first place, the Societv appeared to have mistaken the purport of the bill, for he did not...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 12, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 July 1843

WEDNESDAY, JULV 18, 1-U£. Our reports of the various meetings that have teen held in the |week have occupied so much space, that we are compelled to shut out our twual leading matter. We have, however, just room id express our satisfaction at finding that the public has become sensible of the injurious effects of the Act prohibiting distillation in this colony, and that steps are now being taken to procure a repeal of this Act, which has, even al ready, operated to the prejudice of one branch of productive industry, and which -will be much toore fatally injurious as the progress of the colo py shall call for more extensive cultivation. The 'Vineyard Society has led the way in this im nortant matter, the petition from that most use Jill association* which was presented at the last meeting of the Legislative Council, comprising in a brief space all the principal arguments in favour of internal distillation j to prohibit which is, in fact, arbitrarily to prevent the settler from making...

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

To the Editor oftlie Inquirer. Sir, — It is with sincere regret I see in a letter published in the Perth Gazette, signed 'A Civilian,' an attempt to disturb the good feeling hitherto existing between H. M.'s troops and the inhabitants of the town. I am much surprised at the editor of the Gazette having inserted a let ter evidently malicious, and, a6 far as I can see, without point. With regard to the observations of ' A Civilian' touching public houses, I im agine that when the laws of the realm sanctioned the licensing of public houses, they were equally open to the civilian or soldier, and why a soldier should not be allowed to choose the house he likes best, is a mystery to me. I should imagine the writer of the letter alluded to must be some ill-favoured publican, wltb, not enjoying the cus tom of the soldiers, endeavours to deter others from 60 doing ; or probably some little-minded fellow, who, having received some trifling annoy ance which he is ashamed openly to assert, and ...

The Chairman opened the business of the day t'»y reading the minutes of the last meeting, and Mated thnt since that time he had received a let ter from Mr. Salkilld tendering his resignation of the office of Collector of rates.

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr Editor, — A paragraph having appeared in your paper from the agent of the ship ' Suc cess' which, although my name is not therein mentioned is intended to reflect upon me, Ij hope that you will do me the justice to insert the en closed certificate with the few remarks that I consider myself called upon to make. I do not say that it was from wilful neglect that the boats were not launched when they ought to have been, but that people appeared paralyzed, and that the opinions of the most experienced nautical people present were not consulted as they ought to have been in the first instance. After much unneces sary delay upon the beach a boat was launched ; she proceeded on board of the Success and return ed in a short time to the beach again, and not un til between eight and nine o'clock did she leave the beach, which can be proved by more than one respectable householder. On the other hand it appears by the statement of Captain James, that he was ...
