THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 November 1843

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1848 We beg to call the particular attention of our readers to tue letter addressed to the Secretary of State lor the Coloniep, on the subject of colonization, now in course of publication in this journal. Neither the writer, nor ourselves, have sinv v.M'ii cnniriiinp pvnpi'tatinn ttint. this Ipttor will ever be seen by the party to whom it is ad dressed, or if seen, that he will pay much atten tion to it; still it is no reason that we should fail in our duty, because other persons are. negligent of theirs, or be deterred from giving publicity to what we consider sound and useful principles on the supposition merely I hat they will not he read. Nay, even it it wer.e quite certain that the minis ter would never read a line of what is thus addressed to him, it may still be fairly assumed that others will, and that thus the bubjeet-niatter may in time come round to him. If there is anything more strictly within the province of a Colonial newspaper than another, ...

A LETTER TO HEll MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES. Upon the subject of Colonization, and especially upon the errors of the modern system of disposal of CHOWN LANDS. [Continued from No. 173.] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 November 1843

A LETTEfft TO HER. MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL SECRE TARY OF STATE FOR TEE COLONIES, Upon the subject of Colonization, and especially upon the errors of the modern system of disposal of CROWN LANDS. {Continued from No. 173.] We now proceed to the third point ; the means by which colonies are to progress ; not of course the peculiar advantages of any colony; but the means by which these are to be developed. It is the fashion to consider labour as the sole or chief requisite for this purpose. In one sense, this is, to some extent, correct ; since the proximate means is in general some amount of labour, but the labour can scarcely be deemed to bear a more important, relation to the real means than the mere tools or instruments employed, indeed the relation is so similar that the improvement of machinery renders the latter frequently a sub stitute for the former. The real means of advancement of colonies, with a few singular exceptions, are the capital and skill of the settlers. Capital to empl...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE CORN QUESTION. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." "The want of a market."—INQUIRER, Nov. 15. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 November 1843

CORXIXSFOHDENCB. THE CORN QUESTION. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' 'The wautofa market.' — Inquirer, Nov. 15. We (I mean the writer of this and your en lightened self) are in perfect unison in consider' ing this ' want,' and a sufficient remunerating price, to be the chief evils which threaten tlu; interests and prosperity of our agricultural popu lation. We differ only, but widely, as to the best and shortest road leading to those desired objects. For them there is truly no market. Under the present blessed system of unrestricted trade, we have an arrival about once a week of a cargo of flour; so that our harvest, now within a month of being ripe for the sickle, will be garnered at the time when all the towns of the colony to which the agriculturist resorts for the disposal of his produce, wilt be provided with four or six months' supply of foreign importa tions. Truly a market will be wanted. Your remedy for this want does not appear to me to be attended with any very reasonabl...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 November 1843

To the Editor efthe ° Inquirer.' Sir, — Trusting to your willingness as a public journalist to entertain a subject aftecting the in terests of a large section of the community so deeply as tbat upon which I am about to enter, I nm induced to trouble you with the following communication, in hopes thut it may find a corner in your valuable paper. I am induced to call the attention of the pub lic, and ultimately perhaps (by means of that ' pressure from without' so bitterly complained of by Earl Grey) the notice of the Government, to one of the most needless and vexatious regu lations that could possibly be made, and which is felt by every one in the town of Bunbury who has been subjected to it to be most intolerable. For some time past it has been ordained by the ' powers that be' that only one landing-place should be allowed for the whole Leschenault district, including Bunbury, Picton, Australind, &c. This itself is a great hardship, but letting thut pass, one would think th...

We are rather sorry for it, for he certainly improves in his manner of stating the question as he goes on ; bat he no doubt feels that as it is scarcely possible to find anything new on the subject, so U is not likely that an old argument, which has been many tunes rejected, will have & mftre con vincing effect through him, than through others *rbo have advocated the same side. We shall ourselves just nave a parting word or two to Bay to our correspondent, although, besides that we labour under the same difficulty of want of novelty, we cannot but feel that we are fighting with a shadow to lone as our opponents omit to declare the price which they wish to fix on wheat and flour by the duty. There is, in facr, no discussing this question with people who do not state the...

THE CORN QUESTION. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 December 1843

THE CORK QUESTION^' To the Editor of the *' Inquirer.*' Sir,— It is asserted that a restrictive duty on foreign corn — that is toisay, a protective duty to the home grower in preference to the foreigner — would, besides subjecting the population to the /tender mercies' of our farmers, tend to violent and extreme fluctuations in price. I happen to have before me Badoock's Scale of Prices of Wheat from the year 1100 to 1830, the prices being those of Oxford and Windsor, in which it is incontrovertibly shown that the latter postu late is wholly unsupported by fact. The fluctu ations have in all ages been greater when the trade has been unrestricted, than in those latter tines, when protective duties have been imposed, end in no period have they been less than during the operation of the sliding Bcale. At this moment the agriculturists of this colony are on the verge of ruin. You will not converse with one of them but he will tell you that he has no market for his produce; that his rent...

The Journal of the Agricultural and cultural Society of Western Australia for the Tear 1842. Vol. I. Printed and published by F. Lochee. Perth. Price 5s, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 December 1843

The Journal of the Agricultural and Horti cultural Society of Western Australia for the Year 1842. Vol. I. Printed and published by F. Lochee. Perth. Price 5s. It is with much pleasure that we witness this first publication, in a regular form, of the traits actions of the Agricultural Society. The volume now before us has reference particularly to the proceedings of the Society lor the year 1842; but as the publication has been delayed beyond the time anticipated, it has been thought advisa ble to include many of the transactions of the present year. The Appendix, therefore, will be found to contain a record of the meetings of the Society down to June 1843, and the information generally upon subjects connected with the agri culture of the colony has been brought down to as late a period as possible. The work itself has been undertaken by the Society with a view to extend more widely tha knowledge of its transactions ; to make its own members better acquainted with its working ; to c...

To the Editor efthe 'Inquirer.' Sir, — I should have left to your reporter the task of replying to the letter ot a Trustee, were it not that the latter has thought fit to animadvert on the.course which I deemed it right to take at the meeting in question. 'Through the medium of your columns, the only course at present open, to me, I tell the Trustee, whoever he bo, that his letter, so far as it relate* to myself, is a gross misrepresentation. , My opposition '» if he understood me aright,' arose, he says, from my not having been special ly invited to attend. I tell him plainly, that he neither did nor could have understood me to say so. My objection was that no public notice had been given of this the first meeting to levy a rate upon ihe Allotments.' I asserted that it was unfair to other parties residing at a greater dis tance, who could hot possibly have heard of it; and to corroborate this, mentioned incidental!/ that I, who happen to be the largest proprietor, though living at ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — The report I Bent you relative to the meeting of the Bunbury Town Trust having been very sharply criticised by a Trustee, parti cularly the latter paragraph, to which I attached no sort of importance, I feel called upon to make a few observations in explanation. I stated, without implying the slightest blame upon them on that score, that on the general jneeting being concluded, the Trustees resolved themselves into a private committee, and strangers were ordered to withdraw. I can only say that I adopted, perhaps unguardedly, the words fre quently used in every paper one meets with in the report of parliamentary proceedings; but that although not literally correct, they were substantially true.1 On the motion for the rate, and also one in favour of the proposed improve ments, being carried, it was resolved to leu ve the carrying of them out, the reception of tenders, &c. ,' to the private committee, consisting, 1 be lieve, of six members...

GO&BsspoxDxarcs. To the Editor of the Inquirer. St», — Having read a report in your paper of last week of the Church Meeting at the Vasse, I beg to offer a few words in explanation. With out a personal knowledge of the locality it' is difficult to form a correct judgment as to the most eligible site in this district for one church only : a slight glance at a Map of the district, and not merely of either townsite, will show that it cannot be traversed in winter without great in convenience; but, generally speaking,- among a dispersed population, the services of the clergy will be rendered most extensively useful by the erection of small churches at intervals. ; The site of Busselton church was originally fixed by government on the inland side of the river and Estuary j it is now placed, by thesame authority, on the other side, next the sea, an alteration which renders a bridge indispensable. This site can only be termed central with refer ence to one section of the inhabitant...
