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

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr KDiTon, — As to some folks practice is ? more convincing than theory I will tell you a little fact which bears upon the subject of pro hibitive dul'ves in general, but especially corn jaws ; and for the truth of which I pledge myself as an eyewitness, and you can state whether you con sider that a sufficient guarantee, my sole reason for giving a fictitious signature being because by anonymous writing men are led to consider the argument impartially. In the little town of ? -in the United King dom containing about 2,000 souls and being the capital cify of a district containing about 20,000, sundry ineffectual attempts had been made to set up a bukcr.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 March 1844

WED.YESD.IY, MA11CH20, 1844. The unusually large space occupied by the report of the debate in Council upon the corn law question, has left us &ut scanty room for remark upon it ; a circumstance which accords well with our feelings, for, to tell truth, we have no great stomach for the task. We shall thus vnvnj rccuru our own conviction tnat tneUoun cil has come to a right decision in the case, leaving it to our critical readers to determine which party had the best in the argument. The result is certainly not that which we had antici pated. We had been led to suppose tliat the priaojplc of protection would hnvc found more supporters in the Council than turned out to be the case; and although we think, with Mr. Leake, that the sense is not always with the multitude, yet we are satisfied, in this case, to take the concurrence of the Council with the opinion of the many settlers who signed the petitions against the duty, as a sufficient proof of the wisdom of the course adopted...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 March 1844

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Fellow Citizens, — You arc under a mortal dread of monopoly io grain, do you know the ef fects of a monopoly ? Some of tlioni perhaps you do. Do you know its cause*? 1 trow not. One of the essential requisites to a mischievous monopoly of grain in a grain producing country, whose infernal corn trade is unrestricted, is per fect freedom of importation. This may startle the anti-corn lav? folk; but it may bo easily proved to be the fact. The necessary consequenc es of a sufficient protecting duty are first to in crease the pioilut;iiui« Ntilii it equals every pos sible demand ; end next to enable the fanners to calculate by knowledge of the quantity grown, the probable price throughout the year. Even the most necessitous farmer tviil thus be enabled to demand at harvest (or even before harvest in tins dim aft? j the highest price from the wholesale buyer which the latter can venture to give; ven ture I say, because if he does not encourage con sumption b...

To the Editor efthe 'Inquirer.' Mr. Inquirer, — Though not a croaker 1 think it cruel to allow the truth to burst forth suddenly upon you and your fellows who delude yourselves imo the vain idea that the farmers ex ist only for your convenience, and must continue however unproiiiably to themselves, to supply you with food. From motives of humanity I »»ni induced to warn you of your coming fato. jiut while you can, but be assured thai for next year's diuners \ou must look to the tender mer cies of your absent friends abroad- Even while I write, the hammer and adze are ringing on the clean run and full bows of the ' Retaliation' and the ' Industry.' The farmers have at length opened their eyes to the benefits of looking for a market to folks who sell to the farmer his tea, sugar, wine, and clothing at 200 per cent profit, aud have not even the decency to buy from him in return, but send the money they screwed out of him to swell the finances of a rival colony. The fact is, eir, that w...

EXPORT OF TIMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 March 1844

EXPORT OF TIMBER. TnE attention of the public has been ov.iv.n to i this subject by a meeting of some gcntleru -i Ii-u-r | ,^ week, who are anxious to promote every article ' of export, and willing to risk some cnpiuil i:: furthering tins praiseworthy scheme. While we give theee individuals every praise for Iheir patriotic movements, we must warn them of the dangers in their way ; dangers which aflecr not inerely the iaie of the 50 or 100 tons which at present it is contemplated may be sent home, but which will vitally affect the grand question, whether the trade shall ever be entered upon on a large scale. All will ngree that should the first shipment be of an unfavourable character, infi nite difficulty will be experienced in disposing of a second. It will also be universally conceded to us that if the first specimen be a decidedly favourable one, the disposal of future t-hipnicnts vill l;c facilitated.

^^9^ k^B^^ £2^^b a^^k ^^fii^E ^I^S^S s^B^B ^^L^L C^K^B ^SA COEi^L ? WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, 1844. It is scarcely more than a fortnight ago since the colony was in a wild state of alarm at the contemplation of its own immediate prospects. Batter had fallen to a shilling a pound, and cul inary herbs were at an unexampled lowness of price. There was also an idea among the ' thinking portion of the public' that flour was falling too fast, and that bread would scarcely be worth eating when it should become ' as cheap as dirt.' These direful prospects caused a vio lent fermentation among us, and it was impossible to go out into [the street without being way-laid by some half-dozen groups with portentous vis ages, and examined as to our opinion touching the state of affairs. Opinions were of course as various as the complexions of the patriotic speak ers. The growers of wheat were honestly of opinion that a corn-law was indispensible. Those who had butter and cheese to sell, thought that addi...

We find that to undo a great work ; to disas-   sociate them from their natural ideas, habits, and practices, which are characteristic of the bush   Iife, is a great difficulty, for notwithstanding the provision of sleeping berths, &c. in good rooms ; also of tables, &c. , for their use, and which are peculiar to civilized life, and with which they are associated, yet they naturally verge towards, and cling to, aboriginal education, and hence to squat on the sand to eat— to sleep a night in the bush to have recourse to a Bylyaduck man for ease in sickness ; these to them seem reliefs and enjoy merits from those restraints which civilized life   entails upon them. We trust, however, that as sound knowledge shall increase among them, ac- companied with divine influence, these (to them innocent delinquencies) to us revolting and most degrading habits will be chased away, and that they and theirs shall yet be placed among the civili...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. "(To the Editors of the Register.) THE NEW DISCOVERY TO THE WESTWARD OF PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 March 1844

SOUTH AUSTRALIA* The following interesting account of an expe dition in South Australia, appears in the news papers of that colony :— ' (To the Editors of the Register.) THE NEW DISCOVERY TO THE WESTWARD OF PORT LINCOLN. Gentlemen, — Previous to reading Richard Harris' account of his journey from Fowler's Bay to Coffin's Bay, I had heard from his fel low-traveller, George Cummings, a verbal     statement, which differs in some particulars from that of Harris. From Harris' account, it would seem that they never left the coast till they reached Anxious Bay. The fact is, according to Cummings, that, from the sand-hills at the north side of Streaky Bay, they saw an apparently open country run ning from the east end of the bay. Arriving there, they left Mr. Eyre's track, which was dis tinctly marked, and took a south-easterly course, which brought them to Mount Cooper (Mr. Eyre's course having been south-west to a spring     marked on h...
