CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer," [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 December 1840

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer,"   You will oblige me in allowing me a small portion of   your columns this week to settle a somewhat important   question.         It is a subject of enquiry in this community "can a Wesleyan Missionary celebrate the rites of Marriage ? or in case he does perform that ceremony is it valid in point of law ?'"To which question I reply, — first that all Wesley -   an Missionaries come out from home (especially under the New Marriage Act) with full legal and ecclesiastical right to celebrate the rite of marriage us well as to Baptize,bury   the dead, or preach the gospel. Secondly. — The legal and clerical authorities of this place, as W. H. Mackie Esq. and the Rev. Mr Wittenoom both allow and declare that Ministers of all denominations, Wesleyans, and Dissenters have full right and authority to celebrate marriages — Thirdl...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, 23rd. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 December 1840

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, 23rd. 1840. By the arrival of the "Island Queen," we are   in possession of a few English Newspapers to the beginning of September, but they contain little to interest our readers, and even that little has reach- ed us in such an unconnected chain that we scarcely know what to make of it. We regret to observe that the friendly understanding that has so long existed between England and France is likely to be disturbed. The cause of the proba- ble rupture between the 2 countries seems to be the unwillingness of France to cooperate with En- gland, Austria, Prussia, and Russia, in effect- ing the pacification of the Levant, and in forcing Mehomet Ali to make terms with the Suitan of Turkey. These terms, which have been agreed to by the 4 allied Courts, have been proposed to the Viceroy, and refused, who declares himself ready to repel force by force. In accordance with a convention lately concluded with the Sul- tan, it is said that 2,000 British troops ...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, 30th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 December 1840

WEDNESDAY DECEMEE3, 30th. 1840. The establishment of the Settlement of Aus tralind, and the late accounts from Sydney and Launceston, have formed the topics of conver sation during the past week, and although the former question, being one that moie immediate ly concerns ourselves, is made the chief point of interest, the latter has -not been overlooked by those whose business it is lo discuss matters af fecting, this colony in a more remote degree. Although from various causes, which proba bly certain parties at Sydney can explain, the real state of affairs has been attempted to be concealed, sufficient has transpired to prove that a panic, hitherto unparalleled has taken place in that colony ; some of the oldest houses have stopped — money is every thing, credit nothing, so much so that bills even for srmall amounts are with difficulty discounted. It is worthy the at tention of our brother colonists how in ell revul sions of this nature fictitious capital is of no avail ; there is...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 December 1840

CORRESPONDENCE. —000 — To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir, — I had hoped that, having vapoured tnough to entitle them to the patronage of a particular class of soci ety, the individuals who have been occupying idle time and waste paper in the abuse of the Club recently establish ed in this colony, would have let the subject drop, and ceased to endeavour to persuade the public that Perth was the only place in the world where Clubs existed, and that they were new and malicious inventions for the annihilation of innkeepers. The Colonists are perfectly aware that there is hardly a prosperous portion of the world where Clubs do uot exist ; and I would have imagined that even the most prejudiced and weakest intellect among us would have been capable of perceiving the necessity which existed in this fast rising settlement for a place where men could meet to .partake of refreshments and discuss business. Since I find the same narrowminrled policy still pursued by those who would attempt t...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir, — Although I am unwilling to trouble you again with a letter, especially as people may be thereby led to fancy that my object is rather to render myself notorious, than to obtain the correction of existing abuses, and con sequently may be disposed t» attach very little importance to anything winch 1 state : still I cannot refrain from ad dressing a tew lines to you on the present occasion, hoping tliat you at least, will direct your attention to the subject lo winch I allude, and if you judge that there is sufficient reason for so doing, that you will make some remarks of your own in the Inquirer, which may be more to the pur pose than anything which I could say.

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer,' Mr. Editor, 6eeing an effusion in your paper bearing tho signature of 'an Old Settler,' and' at the same time con taining various repetitions of my name ; and finding it' your conjecture that this lucubration has been intended as refutation of my arguments respecting the price of sheep land, I have bi.ca led by my dtilrtuc-; for your judgment o read it a second, and, what perhaps few can boast of, ft third time — yet, Sir, I must confess I cannot perceive the writers motive for refering to my name, his letter may at fairly be deemed a reply to Mr. Leakcs letters on Town al lotments, or a comment on some storekeepers advertise ment of' satin dresses, pickled 6u'et, eye-glasses, grind stones, Epsom salts, horse nails, and raspberry jam.'

To the Editor of the Inquirer Sir, — Had I known what an irritable uncivil character Sifter had been I would uot in the first instance have troubled him. From his letter I took him to be a man who understood a good deal about sheep and something of corn growing, and ouc who would at the least have given a civil answer, but 1 find I have made & great mistake. I put a plain straightforward statement and should have been quite satisfied to have seen it disproved by plain fair argument, I care as little about the price of laud or sheep as uny man in the colony, and little did I think that my simple state ment was stiong enough in itself to require a column and half of your valuable Journal to renfute it. Your correspondent supposes that he lias made me ap pear very ridiculous no doubt, but I think when I have a little simplified what he either cunuot or will not compre hend you will see that the joke is rather aguinst him. His first letter I considered tended rather to puzzle th...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.1' Sin, — As you have inserted, in your paper of this week, a document handed you by Mr. Ash burner relative to me, I beg the favor of your publishing the following explanation of the whole affair.

After this apology was accepted, and we had shaken hands, of course I thought all was forgot ten. Mr. Ashhurner, however, went to Perth, dined with a large party on the 26ih, where was present a Mr. Robertson, a gentleman who was also a visitor at my house the same evening this occurrence took place. This Mr. Robertson, I understand, di...
