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

coftftEsPONimNeE; To the Editor oftJie ' Inquirer.'' Sir,— Before I proceed to give ' the practical Iiints' which I promised in my former letter, I trust to your candour and sincere desire for the welfare of this colony, which can be bo much promoted by the free discussion of plans for its improvement, (' in a multitude of councillors there is wisdom/') to be permitted to make some comment on your criticism of it. Upon reflection, Sir, you must acknowledge that you have throughout confounded the beau ideal of the Wakefield system with the South Australian system in practice. Upon this confusion of ideas, sir, the pertinency of your re marks upon the money raised by the sale of land, and the demand for the labour of the labourers imported into South Australia, is vainly built. With them, therefore, I have nothing to do ; a chief object of my communication being to draw attention to the difference between the ideal of the Wakefield system and South Australian practice, and to trace th...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 19,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 July 1843

WEDNESDAY, JULY 19,1843. We refer our readers to our report of the debate in the Legislative Council on the import* ant question of allowing distillation in the colony. The subject was so fully discussed by the several speakers, that, in mentioning ii further, we can not avoid repealing many of the same arguments ; nevertheless we should not be satisfied without declaring our own opinions upon it. There appears to have been some mistake with regard to iho bill prohibiting distillation in the colony. When it was presented to the Council, how two years ago, the Governor certainly btated that it was introduced in compliance with Eositive orders from home, and even allowed it to e inferred that the Council could not properly reject it alter receiving such clear notice of the ?wishes of the home government. We are not going ro excuse the Council for- falling in with this notion, very far from it, but the result was ihat the bill passed, and hardly was it passed when the Council began to ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. July 13, 1843.

The estimates have been made out iu con templation pf some new appointments and new salaries ; the appointments were seven in number, at an increase of salaries of £180. The Hon. the Colonial Secretary rose to present a petition from the Western Australian Agricultural Society, praying for an annual grant of money to be applied in rendering the op erations of the society more extensive, and more generally beneficial. [This petition has already been printed in this journal.] The petition was read, and received, and was ordered to lie on the table ; and thehon. member gave notice that he should, at the next meeting, move that the prayer of the petition be taken into consideration, when he should speak to the merits of the question.

? WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 1843. As from th* present No., our journal will be gin a new epoch, we trust we shall be pardoned by our readers if we address to them a tew gen eral observations respecting it. And we do this the more readily as there are but few public wj/iw wot icijumguui mjimiieni. From the first origin of this species of liter ature, newspapers have been generally classed as public nuisances, being commonly devoted to po litical purposes, and serving chiefly to influence i he spirit of partisanship. Nor had they, from their earliest date, been less backward in afford ing a medium for private malice and universal scurrility; becoming too often a poisoned chalice to lips which have never uttered offence, and con VfVinp' (heir mnrta] vannm tn l-u««tn «i...~..~i. which has flowed the current of domestic happi ness.

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — By desire of the Council of the Society for Promoting the Cultivation of the Vine, I have to request your insertion of the following most valuable letter, and those which succeed it, as published. in The Australian. (Sydney paper); and which are known to have emanated from Wm. MacArthur, Esq., of Camden j a member of that house whose pure and exalted patriotism claims for itself the hereditary, office of leading a young country in the peaceful march of selfim provement, and of laying each foundation-stone of national prosperity. The Council feel that these letters contain such full and explicit in formation on the important subject of vine -cul- ture, that any addition by them would be unne cessary. They therefore offer thorn, without comment, as the best study they can give to those who are engaged in the cultivation of the vine in this colony. R. W. Nash, Hon. Secretary.

In support of the claim, the hon. member made particular reference to the utility of the Society as an asso ciation for public purposes, and spoke highly of the advantages that all classes of settlers had de rived from it. But in order that it might fully carry out its designs of improvement, and be as extensively serviceable as was desired, it was ne cessary that some increased funds should be plac ed st its disposal, and he should therefore move that the prayer be taken into consideration with a view to a sum of money being inserted in the estimates for the use of the society.

I can easily imagine what trouble and anxiety — what paring and comparing — what loss of time, and what devoted study, may have been sacrificed in hatching the brood of opinions which I have, single handed, ventured to assail ; and, considering the peevishness which is inse parable from the state of incubation, I am tiot surprised to find you cackle and flutter in endea-1 vouring ' to gather your chick ns under your wing.'
