To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 November 1843

To the Editor of the ' Inauirer' Sin,— I see ray old tellow labourer « Steel,' has ventured a spark in your last by coming in ( collision with me, I cannot flatter him ou hs ' brilliancy. I aru afraid he has been too much in this wet weather and has got rusty, nay, more, he shows symptoms of losing temper. I am quite aware that we were once loaded with an incubus of a Soi-disant Engineer, but 'Steel's1* lojricis very loose; my argument was, that the lately undertaken public works and laid out roads were a disgrace to us for want of the skill of a regular Engineer. 'Steel' replies, ' we had a bad one once, all his works were ' ill planned,' 'ill-placed,' and 'expensive,' and then aeks us 'to appreciate the loss we have sustained by want ot a regular engineer.' This is no reply to me. I never said we wanted a bad engineer, but the reverse. Steel tells me we had a bad one once, and if we had as bad an one now things would still go wrong. Quite correct, but this leaves unanswered my ori...

THE LETTERS OF MARO No. 8. UPON THE USE OF MANURES AND THE BEST MODUS OF RESTORING AN EXHAUSTED VINEYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 November 1843

THE LETTERS OF MARO On the Cultivation of the Vine; republished from the Sydney 'Australian,' at the request of the Council of tfie Society for Promoting the Cultivation of the Vinn. \o. 8. UPON THE USB OF MANURES AND TBB BEST MODUS OF KE6TORING AN EXHAUSTED VIH12YAKB. There Is no subject connected with the cultivation of the vine upon which there is greater diversity of opinion, or, in some instances, I might safely add, a greater difference between theory and practice. The theorist gives out that if manure, especially of animal origin, be employed, the quality of the wine will be destroyed, whereas the practical man says, and truly, that except in a few favoured local ities, it would be vain to attempt the production year after year, of an exhausting crop, without returning to the soil, by means of some enriching substance a portion at least of that principle of fertility, which a crop of grapes undoubt edly extracts froip it. In some famous wiue districts it is unquestionable tha...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 November 1843

To the Editor of the ' Itujuirer.' Sir, — I have read with very gr«at pleasure ' the able report of the Registrar ' o! (his colony, and 1 hope you will afford me your usual indul gence while I make a few remarks regarding u. I am rather surprised at the high rate of mortality the tables exhibit in tire town and vicinity of Perth. One in sixty-five appears to me a very high rate for a young town, iu a colo ny barely 15 years old, as it is not to be sup posed that the same proportion of aged people exists here as in England. The colony is uot yet old enough for the diseases of age to mark their due proportion in the bills ol mortality. The deaths in some of the chief' cities of Europe are as follow : — London ? , ? 1 in 40 Birminyhuoi ? 1 in 43 Nice ? 1 in 31 Paris.. ? 1 in 32 Madrid... ? 1 in 29 Rome ? 1 in 25 Amsterdam ? 1 in 24 - Vienna ? 1 in 22J Thus the mortality of London exhibits a much smaller ratio than any city on the conti nent, and considering its size, and the generally ...

THE AERIAL STEAM CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 November 1843

THE AERIAL STEAM CARRIAGE. The progress that is making in this very cu rious invention, is wit h us a mutter of great doubt and perplexity, as one day we are seiio.usly in formed that the machine has actually taken a flight, and another day we learn that the project has been embarrassed by a multitude of unlbr seen hindrances, which are even said to indicate a failure of the principle. In the London Atlas of April 22nd, we observe an account of an *' ex perimental trip of the aerial machine,' made from Glasgow by a -Professor Geolls, which ap pears fully to bear ou- the truth of the principle contended for, viz, the possibility of navigating the air. The Atlas however, is cartful not 10 pledge itself to the truth of the following account, which it gives from a narrative drawn up by Professor GcoIIs himself, and which we think will be iuteresling to our readers. The professor loquitur : — ''The Aerial Machine whs property placed ut h» altitude of 350 lineal feet from the earth, and t...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 November 1843

CORBSSFONDSNCE. I To the Editor of the Inquirer. I Sir, — During a recent excursion j\p the I Swan, my attention has been so forcibly drawn I to the vital necessity which now exists for afford I ing some protection to our agriculturists from I tttc importation of foreign wheat and Spur, that I 'I cannot refrain from endeavouring, through I your columns, to awaken my brother settlers to I the urgency of the case, which, in my opinion, I admits no longer of hesitation or delay. I The quantity of wheat grown in the colony I this season will fcqual, if not exceed, the wants of I its population, and yet we are threatened with I ' importations to the amount of perhaps as much i Wm more, and at a rate with which our farmers can Wr not compete. The probable price of wheat after ? next harvest is generally stated to be about 5s. I 6d. to 6s. per bushel — a price which every per I son who knows anything of the matter is aware I will scarcely cover the actual outlay necessary I for its product...

THEORY OF PERMENTATION. SECTION 1. Fermentation in general.—Vinous Fermentation.—Yest. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 November 1843

TUEORT OF FERMEKTATIOR. | SBCTIOX I. Fermentation in general.— Vinous Fermentation. — Test. The ancient philosophers used the term fermentation in a vague and often unintelligible sense. It was intended to convey some mysterious, hypothetical, or latent process, more frequently than to express the exhibition of palpable chemical changes, such as the word is now understood to mean. In the modern acceptation, the word expresses the changes which vegetable or animal matters spontaueously undergo, and which terminate in th-0roductioa either oi a vinous liquor, nn acid liquor, or of a remarkable fetor, Many chemists have considered these three different terminations as constituting three different kinds of fer mentation. It is, however, more convenient to understand the whole series of changes, as merely stages of one great process. And to this simple view it will be no objection to urge, that the last «t«-re very often takes place without being preceded by any other, and that all the st...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 November 1843

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1843. We last week made brief allusion to the im portant question of a protective duty on imported grain and flour, especially with reference to a communication in our last No. from our corre spondent ** Unit,' to whom, and upon the subject generally, we purpose now addressing a few remarks. The question is one fraught with difficulty, and can only be properly argued by ttose who have made the science of Political Economy their careful study. This we confess not to have done, and consequently manv subtile points, that have important bearing on the ques tion, are hidden from us. There are still, how ever, some things which it 'is in our power to sf»y, and which may probably be said not with out advantage. We have hitherto been opposed to the imposi tion of a protective duly in this colony, and we are so opposed still. And this, not out of any affection for free-trade principles generally, (which, so far as we can understand them, wouid Beem to be opposed to so...
