CORRESPONDENCE. THE CRISIS. To the Editor of the Inquirer. LETTER 11. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 March 1844

0ORRESPOKDSNC3S. THE CRISIS. To the £di(or of the Inquirer. LETTBR II. Sir, — Whilst my former letter was in tha hands of the printers, the Watertvitch arrived from Adelaide, on her third trip to this highly* favoured colony. She has done however little more than spy out the nakedness of the land, and has carried forward the chief part of her cargo to the Mauritius. 1 hear from a corre spondent in South Australia that another vessel is preparing to proceed hither, besides the un fortunate Vixen, which has just arrived, since the Waterroitch. We may also daily expect one from Van Diemen's Land. In the mean time our farmers, graziers, and other philoso phers, continue in a kind of mental abstraction, smoking their pipes and twirling their fingers, and every now and then muttering in sleepy tones, ' Come, buy ! come, buy ! I have sheep and oxen for sale, and he-goats and she-goats, fatlings and sucklings, but nobody buys. Come, buy ! come, buy !' And then the enterprising settler, wear...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — I have lately met i.'ith a small vohiinp, « ElementB of Geology' by Mr. Lyell, one of the most eminent professors of that science, vi hick though not a recent publication, is entirely new to me, and may be equally so to others. I there fore make no apology for introducing it to the notice of yourself and your readers, as I am quite sure that whether you are learned in the objects of the Geologist's research, or only like myself curious after the wonders which expir ations into the interior of this our earth from time to time disclose, you would be equally pleased and interested with Mr. Lyell's work. Learning and the arts in the present day 'iavej« ranged themselves in the ranks of the utilitariansilH They perceive that in order to be popular thejr^ must make themselves infellipblefo common ca pacities, and give proof of thoir being able to minister to the wants and the business of every day life.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 March 1844

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1844. By the Cecilia we have English news down to the 7th November. This vessel left London on the 20ih September, but having, unfortunate t|v, run foul of another ship, when off Cape Finisterre, was compelled to put back into Lisbon in order to repair damages, which ac counts for her bringing news to such a late date. The particulars of the accident are as follow : ? At about half-past 11 on the night of the 28ih September, the Cecilia being then about 200 miles from Cnpe Finistcrre, and the crew occu pied iu trimming sails, they were hailed bv a tepsfil ahead, The Cecilia's helm was imme diately put uj\ with the hope of clearing her, but not being sufficiently in lime, the two vessels came info collision, tho. strange ship, which turned out to be the Paid Emile, being struck amid-ships. The captain of the Cecilia, finding the other vessel kept her sails full, threw all aback, and ultimately succeeded iu getting clear, not without receiving very considerable dam...

The Literary Gazette publishes a very interest ing account of the labours and discoveries of Captain J.

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 March 1844

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1844. The session of the Legislative Council opened on Friday last, the members having been sum moned thus early in consequence of a memorial sent in to the Executive Government represent ing the deranged state of the monetary affairs of the colony, and requesting that the Council might be assembled with a view to the adoption of some measure of relief. The Council will never have met under more arduous circumstances ; as, whatever may be the cause, it is certain that the colony is now suffer ing from a depression 6uch as we have not known in any former time, and which requires more than ordinary judgment and promptitude to relieve. The public, naturally enough, looks to the Legislative Council, and the Government, for the adoption of some measure that shall have the effect of restoring confidence ; but while we shall be rejoiced to see the Council apply itself resolutely to this course, as the only one whereby we may hope to get at a knowledge of the real cause...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 March 1844

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir,— I hear that the Londoners are so right eously indignant at the losseB they have sustained by the insolvency's of the eastern colonies, that they will scarcely speak to any Australian, t am not surprised, considering their gross degrad ed ignorance of common geography, that they should confound all the Australian colonies in one category, which is about as reasonable as to blame the police of Petersburg!) for not putting down Lord George Gordons riot ; but I confess I am almost surprised at their cool, consummate, impudence. If there be any one refreshing and gratifying ciroumstauce in the distress and misery which mountebaokschemes of govern tnent have brought upon tke unfortunate sister colonies, it is the fact that so much of it has recoiled upon the heads of its producers the people of England, who first lent great 6umson usurious, ay, swindling, inte rest, and then not content with sucking the blood of the unfortunate settler, must needs, und...

^ To the Editor of the 'Inquirer:' Sir, — Seeiug that you have in a recent paper Tentured on a reference to the old patriarch of political economy, Adam Smith, (a name as familiar to our colonists, I should suppose, as that of the 50th maternal ancestor of Confucius) may 1 suggest to you and Censor to look to that ?worthy's writings on colonization, where jou will both find more useful hints on your princi ples on that subject than I have leisure to extract, seeing that old Adam, in comparing the progress u{ the Greek and American colonies with the comparative failure of the Roman, demonstrates the former to have succeeded because, let.
