THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 January 1844

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1844. We have barely room to call the attention of our readers to the report of the Vineyard Society meeting published at length in this day's jour nal. The communications read by the different members contain information highly valuable to all those who are engaged in the culture of the vine. Tenders were received by the Commissariat Department on the 3rd instant, for Treasury Bills in exchange for spe cie, and for Colonial Wheat the growth of this harvest. We understand that the Treasury Bills were offered not from actual want of specie in the government chest, but to prevent if possible the continued export of specie. How- ' ever the tenders, with the exception of a small amount, verts to low, as to induce the Commissariat officer to de clitic them, and a new advertisement, calling for fresh tender* has been issued. The tenders for wheat were much more numerous than usual, about 6000 bushels being tendered. The quantity advertised for was purchased by govej...

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 January 1844

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN BANK. The half yearly meeting of the Proprietors in the above establishment took place at the Bank buildings on the 4th instant, pursuant to notice, and was very respectably attended. The Honourable J. S. Roe having been called to the chair, opened the proceedings of the day by congratulating the meeting on the satisfactory aspect of the affairs of the Bank, and read the following statements as the Report of the Director* for the half year terminating December 22, 1843. 'Tbe return of the usual period for rendering their half-yearly report, enables the Directors to congratulate the shareholders in this Colonial Institution, on its con tinued prosperity, and general estimation witli the public. It is satisfactory to observe that, with an increased paid up Capital, arising from an additional number of shares having been taken at a premium of 20 per cent, since the last report, as well as from an augmentation of the guar antee fund, the business of the Bank has also ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of The Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 January 1844

CQHRSSPOHJBEZICE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — I observe in your valuable Journal of the 3rd January, an account of the Annual Gen eral Meeting of the Perth Town Trust, which contains two paragraphs that require some notice from me. It is there stated that Mr. L. Samson moved a ' vote of censure'* on the Chairman and Committee of the Town trust ' which was second ed by Mr. Landor.' The motion was not se conded bv me ; nor was it seconded at all, the Chairman having refused to entertain it. Neither was the motion a vote of censure upon the chair man &c generally, but merely for their having destroyed n good foot-path at an unseasonable time of the year. In this I fully agi'ee with Mr. Samson, and think the Chairman and Committee li;:ve done a very umvipe and useless act; and I shall have much pleasure in seconding a motion confined to (his particular act,4 at any time. But ihtxi^h I am willing to second the motion, I am not u illing to echo M r. Samson's eloquent spe...

THE LETTEHS OF MA HO On the Cultivation of the Vine ; republished from the Sydney ' Auttraluui,' at the request of tlw Council of the Society for Promoting the Cultivation of the Vim. (Xo. 10, continued.) PUTREFACTIVE FERMENTATION. I In the putrefaction of vegetable matter, the only cle 1 mint which remains is carbon, mixed with any earths end I metallic oxides which the vegetable contained.

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 January 1844

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1844. In the strong dislike we feel to anything ap proaching to a 'corn-law' discussion, we had fondly ho| ed that the question would not have been renewed, at least until the session ©f the Coumil; and that the slight duello between Uniter and ourselves would have been allowed to pnsB over without drawing on a more general engagement by the arrival of new combatants, anxious to flesh their willing 6words. We have been disappointed, however. A new opponent has appeared on the field in the person of our correspondent ' Consumer,' who is resolved to draw, and strike in, although showing no very strong inclination towards either party ; in short, like an Irishman in a row, he is 'any body'g \ customer/' 8nd lays about him without respect [ fovfriend or foe. j The queries that ' Consumer' has submitted to us would take a full-sized folio volume pro perly to reply to; but we shall just briefly notice some of the most prominent points. And if, in noticing them, we a...

A LETTER TO HER 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 CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 January 1844

. ? . .. — — ? ?? . \ ▲ LETTER TO HER MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL «R0RB* TARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES, Up$n the tubject of Colonization, and especially upon the errors of the modern tystem of disposal of CROWN LAND*. [Continued/torn No. 177.] It is obvious that the principle I have endea voured to establish, that the way to render tue colonies an effectual relief to the mother-country is to induce the emigration of capitalists, to defray the emigration of labourer?, and to enable the former to reserve the whole of his means to employ the latter, is directly opposed to the auc tion system ; the object of which is to lock up the emigrant's money in purchase, rather than to employ it in improvement. The modern theo* rists contend thut labour gives value to land, and that therefore in a system which engages (o sup ply if, a proportionate price may fairly be set upon land. I have endeavoured to show that, I whether fair and just or not, it is impolitic to ask a price for land ; because it rend...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 January 1844

COEBSSrONDEKCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. Mr. Inquirer, — The question of the expedi ency of protective duties is of kucIi vital moment; so affecting all interests; on which the wisest and best of our community so conscientiously dif fer; one, withal, of such complication and diffi culty, if handled generally and vaguely ; that I think it ought to be entered upon with a mild, respectful, anxious spirit of investigation, deter mined so to sift the merits of the case as if pos sible to set it at rest, and unite the reasoning por tion of our colonists upon the course to be adopted for the general good. My sentiments are in fa vouv of protective duties where circumstances will admit ; nor have I any respect for the free trade system : but I apprehend that in this col ony neither party deserves to be classed with that unnalional rabble whose motto (iike the Scotch man) 'money — honestly, if you can, — but — mo- ney' is our bellies 'without destroy ing the whole in tertstsoftheempire...
