To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 July 1843

To the Editor of t heInquirer. SIR, — I observe a letter from Charles Sym- mons, Esq., in the Perth Gazette, relative to the death of the aboriginal child Millet, which, it will be remembered, I attributed in some measure to the damp and cold to which he had been ex- posed ; Mr. Symmons however, being of a dif- ferent opinion, called upon S. Moore,. Esq., and Dr. Dinely, whose opinions, inasmuch as they agree with him, he considers conclusive. Mr. Moore states that in his opinion, the ex- posed state of the building and the scantiness of the clothing was not either the immediate or re- mote cause of the child's death ; and yet Mr. Moore did not see a single shred or particle of the clothing the children had worn when I made my public representations. Dr. Dinely who has given his opinion as a professional gentleman, never saw the deceased professionally but once, and that more than eight months previous to the child's death. Neither did he see the former clothing of the children. Wit...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 August 1843

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor oj tlie Inquirer, My unhappy Friend, — As soon as I had in some degree revived after the withering castiga tion which that merciless *? Townsman' has in flicted on as, I began to think of you. For one week I waited anxiously, hoping against proba bility that 1 should ever see another Inquirer. Judge then my transports, on the arrival of the mail, to find that you, as well as myself, had, as Sam Weller says, 'managed to surwive it.' But, alas, my feelings were soon changed, as my trembling glance rested on another — oh, my poor Inquirer I — another ' Townsman'!— ? ' A fourth ! and he ' Squinted more vilely than Ihe other three.' Yet, as you survived his first, you may per chance yet live to receive from me this token that 1 still drag on a suffering and maimed ex istence. Yet I can scarcely hope after such a torrent of fiery eloquence, profound quotation, clear logic, and refined sarcasm. Your ' dark lantern, and in italics too; the unfeeling maw ! ?? bl...

To the Editor of the Inquirer, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 August 1843

To tite Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — In one of your late journals you solicit ed information from all classes on the subject of exorbitant charges preferred against the store keepers by your correspondents Messrs. Mentor k Qttiris. It does appear to me strange that, with the exception of Townsman, not one of them have come forward to rebut the statements of this phalanx of Mentor, Quivis, & Co., being persuaded they could do so to a great extent with credit to themselves, by analyzing the whole operation of the petty business of a retail trade in this colony. I am no storekeeper, but flatter myself I know the nature of the business, from past experience, quite equal to Mentor, Quivis, & Co. I do not write these sentiments because I am personally piqued at the views they enter tain ; I am an admirer of any exposure of abusps, provided the truth is adhered to. Now with reference to your correspondent 'Aliquis,' who prefers a charge against the storekeeper for tend er...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 August 1843

To tive Editor of the Inquirer. Sin, — Observing in your valuable journal of last week a letter from the Rev. George King, wherein a statement made by me respecting the death of one of the aborigines is somewhat called in question, I shall feel obliged, in justice to my selt, if you will afford me a small space in your next number to make a few remarks. In the statement alluded to I mentioned that the child having suffered with mesenteric disease for so long a time, that death was more attributa ble to debility than to other causes. This the rev. gentleman seems te doubt, or at least his letter infers that I had no foundation for making that assertion, not having seen the child for so long a time. However, I have no hesitation in repeating it, believing it conscientiously to be correct. Knowing that the child had suffered with that disease, and from the questions put by me and answered by the matron of the establish ment, I had ever? reason to believe it had con tinued. In conclusio...

THE LETTERS OF MARO On the Cultivation of the Vine; republished from the Sydney Australian, at the request of the Council of the Society for Promoting the Cultivation of the Vine. LETTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 August 1843

THE LETTERS OF MARO On the Cultivation of the Vine ; republishedfrom the Sydney Australian, at the request of the Council of the Society for Promoting the Cultivation of the Vine. LETTER I. CLIMATE. In treating of the culture of the vine iu New South Wales, it may perhaps appear superfluous to many of your readers to offer any remarks upvn the subject of climate. , Certainly it would be difficult to find a climate more propitious thau that of the county of Cumberland, and, indeed, of tbe whole coast from Illawarra to More! cm Bay. Nevertheless, it is equally certain, that within 100 miles of Sydney, numerous «itea exist, offering every natu ral advantage essential to the production of a wiue of reputation, save this first of all requisites. The great ele vation of many portions of the inland districts must, I fear, preclude all hope of their ever producing wine for their consumption. Over a still larger extent, however, in which the cultivation of vineyards has not, that I uin aware...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2,1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 August 1843

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1643. Our readers will see, in another part of oar columns, that the petition of the Agricultural Society has been acceded to by a grant of £100 per annum for prizes, &c, and for enabling the Society to extend its operations. We confess, that, in the present heavy state of our taxation, we had not anticipated such a vote ; and, with the very best feeling towards the society, and even with the consciousness of its many and valuable labours, we are not inclined to give the vote our unqualified approval. The question of its pro priety will, however, be decided by the future conduct of the society. It is stated in the pe tition that the exertions of the society have been crippled by want of means. This may be true, but it is at least equally so that this want of means arises partly from the Society's own fault. It is within our own knowledge that the whole affairs of the Society have been carried on, and the association itself supported, for the last two yea...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 August 1843

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9,1843. ' Our readers are aware that a bill having for its object to remedy certain defects in titles to 3ands in this colony, lias been now for some time under the consideration of the Legislative Coun cil. Upon reference to our report of the last meeting, it will be seen that this bill underwent a further discussion on Thursday last, and that an amendment was moved by the Hon. the Ad vocate-General, and seconded by W. H.Mac kie, Esq., by which power is proposed to be given to a mortgagee, having: a power of sale, to buy the land so mortgaged to himself. Although the full eifects and purpose of this measure may not be clearly apparent to many, and although we may not be able to make the public fully understand the complicated merits of the question, yet our readers may rest assured that it is one of the very highest importance; one that affects the general interest most directly a»d vitally, and one upon which the public opinion should be taken and declared before...

legislative Council* AUGUST 8, 1811. On tht order of the day being moved, the Hon. G. F. Moore brought up tht report of the committee appointed to inquire into the expe diency of allowing internal distillation. The report, which was adopted by the Council, is as follmvft :— Report of a select committee of the Legislative Council appointed ' to enquire into and report upon the txpe ' diency or otherwise of permitting the distillation of ' ardent spirits to any and what extent within this ' colony.' Your committee are of opinion that it is not at present expedient to sanction general distillation ; but they con ceive that distillation limited to the product of vineyards is not open to ail the objections, while it is supportable by some arguments, not applicable to the unlimited manufac ture of ardent spirits. Thev lire of nninion that the existing nrohlbitlon to dta. til brandy from the products of the vine may probably operate as a discouragement to the investment of capital in the c...

THE LETTERS OF MABO On the Cultivation of the Vim; repvblished from the Sydney ' Australian,' at the request of the Council of tlie Society fir Promoting the Cultivation of the Vine. No. 2 SOIL. With the exception of climate there is no poiut of so much importance, in determining the site of a vineyard, as the nature and quality of tbe soil ; and where the climate is congenial to the grape, the choice of a proper soil may be said to outweigh all the other considerations put together. Nor is it to the niercsurface that attention should be di rected ? the subsoil is at least of equal importance, and should be examined to the depth of several feet. The fine quality of the wines of the ' Palus,' near Bordeaux (as mentioned in the preceding paper), is attributed to a strat um of gravel and sand, 3 or 4 feet from the surface, the soil, which is superincumbent (a rich alluvium), being con sidered to be altogether unfavourable to the production of a, wine of reputation. Strong tenacious cla...

OPENING OF THE CHURCH AT FREMANTLB. ?he Church of Fremantle was opened for divine service on Friday last, the 4th instant, amid the thankgivings of hundreds of our bro ther settlers, many of whom came from distant parrs of the colony to be present on this joy fcl occasion. It was a deeply interesting ceremony, not merely on account of the proceedings of the ?day, although these were, to the secluded inha bitants of this part of the world, both novel and -striking, but with reference also to the future effects of that day's work; effects which wetruBt and believe will be beneficially felt throughout our little community for ages to come. Among those who testified by their presence the interest they took in the ceremony, were many of our very oldest settlers ; men who remember what Fremantle Was fourteen years ago; and who, looking back upon the days when all around them was an unknown and mistrusted desert, matt indeed have found their hearts -jl«td at the glorious change, ond in thu...
