MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 January 1844

MZSCEZ.Z.A.NEOVS EXTRACTS. The Presse of Saturday contains the following article in reply to observations of our (Morning Herald) on the marriage of the Prince de Joiu ville and the Princess of Brazil. We cannot help being struck by the recapitulation of the fortune which the princess brings to her hus band, and with the parental care the King of the French takes to find out such excellent matches for his children, as this lady not only has a very large sum in hand, but the throne of the Brazils in contingent prospective. The arti cle of the Presse is as follows: — ' We can affirm that the Morning Herald has been badly informed relative to the fortune of Madame the Princess de Joinville. It is not in the island of St. Catherine's that the 25 leagues of territory given to the Princess are situated, but in the province of that name. The locality is left to the choice of the Prince, but it is not true that the value of tbe land replaces a part of the dowry in ready money. The PrincesB ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 January 1844

\V 111) N HS 1) A Y , J A K C A RY 24, 1 844. By the Ganges we have English papers down to the 24th September last, which give some im portant »nd carious particulars of the general af fairs of Europe. Numerous extracts from those papers will be found in another part of this day's journal, and for the rest, we shall give our usual commentary. Not the least interesting event is Her Majesty's \isit to France, where she was most flatteringly and hospitably received ; being Hie ti rsi event ef the kind since Harry the Eighth, met Francis the First on the ' Field of the Cloth of Gold.' Some of the English papers hint wry mysteriously at the impropriety of these royal visits, but for our part we consider that ikey'do much to cement the friendship existing between the two nation?, and, if regarded more in a so cial than a political light, may lend to diminish their mutual prejudices. The political state of Spain is still most deplor able. That unhappy country, which a century ago. was a fi...

[From the "Colonial Gazette."] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 January 1844

[From the' Colonial Gazette.'] 'The Session. — The British colonies con tain a population of nearly font- millions of British subjects. The trade with the colonies amounts to about one-fourth of the whole of our commercial transactions out of the British Is lands. Yet, in (he speech with which her Majesty terminated on Thursday the annual business of the Legislature,, no more mention is made of the colonies than if they did not exist ; and the speech with which she opened its pro ceedings was equally silent respecting them. Have her Majesty's advisers, past or present, ever, by any chance, thought of mentioning lo her the existence of the colonies ? A retrospect of what has been said and done in Parliament during the past session is a little — only a little — more cheering. Mr. Charles Butler's speech upon systematic colonisation ob tained a favourable verdict from members of all shades of political opinion, and from the leaders of both parlies. His speech upon Canada was a practica...

' LE?CHKN'AULT AXD THE WBSTEHN AUSTRALIAN COMPANY.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1844 [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 February 1844

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1844 The stale of the colony at this moment is one that calls for the serious consideration, not ot' the Legislature, or of the Press, but of ih-: set tiers themselves. From a variety of causes, by which all the countries of the earth are, at limes, more or less affected, a depression iu the value of every kind of property has been induced; while, from the great scarcity of money, com bined with the high rate oi interest at wliich the little that there is, is alone to be procured, and the difficulty of finding a sale for stock or pro duce, many of our settlers are not enabled to meet the immediate demands that are made upon them. Under such circumstances, it appears to us that, if we wish to avoid the most disastrous consequences, there is but one course to pursue — viz., for all parties steadily to persevere in a system of mutual forbearance, in ail cases where the parties ha\e the will, but not the present ability, to pay. But this system, to be efficient, m...
