REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 January 1841

REVIEW. ^^^aUa : or which is the best Colony for tlie J^l^afti? Carry and Co, Dublin, 184J. iglplua above is the title of a spirited little brochure ;4j|iat has lately been published in Dublin, and it |b satisfactory to see that the author answers the question by giving the palui to Western- Austra lia. In coming to this conclusion which we must bo allowed to 6ay we believe to be the cor rect one, our author has, while giving us our tair meed of praise, not overstepped the bounds of truth, tnd while the thanks of our little community are due to him for Btanling up in the defence o£ the well abu.33d S .van .

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY JANUARY, 6th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 January 1841

WEDNESDAY JANUARY, 6th. 1840.       The past week has been busy in remarkable events. Our old friend 1840 has retired from the scene, and a younjr stranger, whose qualities are yet to be proved, has been ushered in, in his stead. Whatever merits may be hereafter dis covered in the new-comer (and he has at least commenced his reign with an event to be marked in our annals with a white stone), it must be con fessed, that the year that has departed has been one of plenty and prosperity to this land. The voice of discord has been loud in other parts of the world, but, ' secure in our own little town of Utica,' even its echoes have scarcely reached us. Whatever evils the past year may have brought on other countries, upon these shores its influence has been most benign ; the agriculturist has wit nessed his labours repaid with an abundant har vest; success has smiled on the ventures of the man of commerce ; favorable seasons and peace able times hav...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY JANUARY, 13th. 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 January 1841

WEDNESDAY JANUARY, 13tli. 1841. We are sorry to observe in the Port Phillip Gazette of 21st Nov. last, a most rabid article against Swan River, written with all that acri mony, and want of proper feeling which have distinguished the different attacks upon this col ony. It is somewhat strange, that the advocates of the several settlements established on these shores since the time Swan River was founded, have one and all seemed to consider that lavish abuse of this place was necessary to their own welfare ; ths practice has become a part of iheir nature, and as such is not to be destroyed by any process of reasoning. Naturam expella* fared, tamen usque recurret. Whatever may in consequence be thought of our position, by persons who have heedlessly giv en credit to these misrepresentations, we cannot but think that such conduct must tell in the end against the slanderers, for the animus will be ap parent to every unprejudiced mind, and the calm thinking man will be induced to believe ...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, JANUARY. 20, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 January 1841

WKDXESDAY, JANUARY. 20, 1841, The Inquirer of this day assumes a new and enlarged form, in which it is intended it shall continue, until the gradually advancing state of the colony shall require a yet larger sheet. It is now little more than five month? since first this journal was established, and, without wishing to boast of the degree of public favour that has been shown towards it, we are bound to f&y that the success of the undertaking has been p.t lea?t equal to our expectations. With this we might have remained satisfied, but, mindful of the principles on which we started, we could not rest ot -ntented while there was a chance of ex tending our sphere of usefulness : we considered ourselves pledged to seize on the frst opportunity of enlarging our sheet, and consequently, in the face of opposing doubts and difficulties, the first number of our new series now makes its ap pearance.

Tiiis column directed its march ou Boulogne, where it arrived about five o'clock. Prince Louis Napoleon proceeded to the barracks, where he tried in vain to shake ttie fidelity of the soldiers. On the refusal of a captain, the prince tore his cross from him, and fired a pistol at him, which missed but shot a soldier in the ueck, who, it is said, died in the course of the day. ' After this fruitless experiment, an attempt was made on the post of St. Nicholas, which was occupied by four men and a sergeant. Tiiis ...
