GOBSESPOKDSMGE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sin, — Asyou seem to have adopted the opin ion of some individual that has communicated with you on the subject of the Busselton church, at the 6utu6 time expressing yourseli uncertain *s to the correctness of the view ycu have taken, in consequence of no previous knowledge, I {eel it would h(=. unfair to allow yourself and the pub lic fo he roisJed by the illiberal means that teem to have been u«ed hy your informant. What has burn conceded by the mithoritiru, unasked, and from a sense of justice alone, namely, that ?* the convenience of the Biissell family in especially to be consulted.' is sufficient to indi cate that Wonnerup ran have no rival claims up on the funds of this church. It has however been the with of us all, even I believe of vour inform ant, of whom I complain us one who wilfully misrepresents, that the church should he so placed as to be most wi-L )y beneficial, but it hus been overlooked that the endeavour to accom...

A LETTER TO HER MAJESTY 8 PRINCIPAL SECRETARY STATE FOR THE COLONIES, Upon the subject of Colonization, and espsdally upon the errors of the modern system of disposal of CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 December 1843

A LETTER TO HER MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL SECRE TARY OF STATE FOB THE COLONIES, Upon the subject of Colonization, and espiriaUg npon the errors vf tfu modern system of disposal of ' CROWN LANDS. [Continued from No. 175.] It will be observed that I treat this whole question on the avowed narrow, and discredit able ground of its operation on the interests of -5reat Britain. I am willing even to suppose it just former to attempt to derive a vast relief from the struggling finances of her adventurers, to levy an impost for- her own wealth from the small funds of those whom her bloated plethory expels from their native land. If I had been ad dressing 8ges now past—if I could appeal to a nation of gentlemen, instead of an assembly of hucksters, I would say, 'is it honest, is it hon ourable, is it worthy of your name, and the greatness of your empire, when you have a mil lion of useless, helpless souls, to try to drive a bargain with one portion of them to expend their little means in carrying a...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 December 1843

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1843. By the tf Wai^er Witch' we have ft few South Ai^tralian papers down to the 14th November last, but nothing approaching to a regular file of any oue of them. This omission has been of repeated occurrence lately, bftt whether it arises from the negligence of our contemporaries them selves5, or from that of the Post-office authorities in Adelaide, we know not. All that we do know is, that regular files of our own journal are con Ftuntly sent, by every opportunity to the Register, ihe 'Southern Australian, and the Adelaide Ob: server, for which we mostly receive but sadly mu tilated files in return. We hope that our brethren at Adelaide will observe this. The English news contained in these journals is down to the 10th July, or only two days later than tl'.at of which we have been so long in pos session, and is confirmatory of the strong excite ment prevailing in Ireland on the repeal question. The only new fact that we observe in relation to it is that the...

THE INQ[?] WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 December 1843

WEDNESDAY, D EC EMBER 20, 18*3. We have often; had occasion to lament the 'inauner in which our settlers loiter away their time, and opportunities, .as compared with the activity and diligent thirst after improvement displayed by ihn colonists of the sister settlements, and mure especially by our neighbours in South Australia. With us, if any evil arises, we are content to leaveib* cure to the chapter of accidents, and like the waggoner in the fable, call upon J upitfir to assist us without ev^r dreaming of pulling our own bhoulder to the wheel. With the South Australians it is very different. So soon as iliey perceive a want they instantly set busily and 'resolutely to work to supply it, and the consequence is' that they are fast freeing themselves (join their difficulties, and are earning for themselves a highly creditable reputation as active and enterprising colonists. The ditlerencs between our mod« of action and theirs, has lately manifested iis&lf in an especial manne...

THE LETTERS OF MARO (No. 10, continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 December 1843

THE LETTERS OF MARO On the Cultivation of the Vine; republuhed from, the Sydney 'Australian,' at the request of the Council of tlu Society for Promoting the Cultivation of the Vine. (Tfo. 10, continued.) The last stiure of spontaneous decomposition is the pu trefactive fermentation. It is the final change which break* down all organised matter, subverts all its former constituent affinities, and reduces its element* either to the simple form, or to a less complex and more permanent state of existence. It is that change which all life, wlir theranimul or vegetable, is doomed to undergo, and whirlt resolves all organic structures into the inanimate material* of which they hud been oieinally composed. Chemical writers have divided this procees into two others; one affecting vegetable substance*, and the other acting on animal matter. The formur only ha» been gen erally considered as a stage of fermentation ; aud the lat ter is often described in an undecided way, as merely a process na...

A LETTER TO HER MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL SECRE TARY OF STATS FOR THE COLONIB8. t~ Upon the subject of Colonization, and especially upon the errors of the modern system of disposal of CROWN LANDS. [Continued from No. 176.] That the power of obtaining labour to such extent as they may require is essential to the prosecution of the enterprises of cajutalists is ob vious ; but this is at least equafly true of the materials, implements, provisions, stock, and many other things. It would almost appear as if England were ashamed of the injustice of abstracting a portion of the scanty means of the adventurers who were to extend her empire, for the purpose of relieving her own workhouses ; for she tries to convince them that it is done for their benefit, by the preposterous doctrine that land and labour produce wealth. In fact, this doctrine merits a harsher name, for with the thinking portion, a small one,* perhaps, of those who promulgate it, it must be a deliberate quibble. Land and labour pro...

"THE SEA WHALE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 December 1843

'THE SEA WHALE TRADE. [From the Times.] ' A few days ago some remarks were made npon the wealth the Americans were deriving from the whale-fishery at the Swan River, and involving, as it appears to do, the enterprise of the British merchant, who, from all that can be learned, bad not explored that part of the south ern seas with anything like the success attending our Transatlantic brethren, the subject deserves increased attention. The Americans, it would seem, are making the trade in oil, or at (east the produce of these fisheries, entirely their own; tor whereas, in two or three instances which have come under our special observation, it has been discovered that while a fleet of American ves sels have fished, as was stated the other day, in the most successful manner in the bays of Western Australia, certainly not more than half a dozen of our whalers visit those places. A correspondent, who has forwarded some statistics on this subject, laments the want of spirit dis played by o...

A SOUTH- AUSTRALIAN'S ACCOUNT OF SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 December 1843

A SOUTH-AUSTRALIAN'S ACCOUNT OF SWAN RIVER. In a number of The Adelaide Observer, for 23rd September last, we lately discovered a highly interesting and extremely valuable nar- rative, which purports to give a description of Perth and its environs. It proceeds, the editor informs us, from the pen "of a fair correspond-   ent who recently visited the Swan ;" and it is precisely such as we should expect a "fair cor- respondent" would give. Our readers may remember that when the Madras touched here in August last, a somewhat heterogeneous num- ber of passengers made their way up to Perth, and with the most laudable views of economy, took up their abode-— not at one of the four prin- cipal hotels or boarding houses of the town — but in an old wooden building, which has been deserted almost ever since, and which was never designed to accommodate people desirous of comfort. The fair historian commences her narrative with the arrival of the Madras off Fremantle ; which auspici...
