THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 April 1844
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 1844. Ovn readers will perceive that the Legislative Council has, in its wisdom, declared that no in quiry into the. circumstances of the colony is ne cessary, because, although the existence of em barrassment is acknowledged, it is yet beyond the reach of Legislative enactment: the remprlv being in the hands of the settlers themselves ac cording to the recipe recommended by the several members who spoke on the question. Such is, briefly, the sum of what our Legislators have j resolved upon, and we are, on the whole, inclined to agree with them. We are not desirous ot be ing ranked among the class of ' mere waiters up on Providence,' but there are things that must be left to right themselves, or at least human in genuity has not yet discovered in what way the interference of the Legislature may be applied as a curative for a certain class of social and political evils. Hereafter, as the world advances, and new lights descend upon us, the science of go vernment ma...
GUILDFORD STEAM SAW AND FLOUR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 April 1844
GUILDFORD STEAM SAW AND FLOUR MILLS. Ihese Mills commenced work yesterday in the presence of his Excellency the Governor and a large party of gentlemen as well as a concourse of our most intelligent mechanics and others inte rested in the success of this spirited effort towards the developement of oj|r colonial resources. There were several points on which anxiety prevailed as to the adaptation of circular «n«a i« our timber, such as the effect of the gum adher ing to the saw, &c.j and it was interesting to ob serve the intent expectation which prevailed as the huge logs of our noble Beef-wood were secur ed on the advancing table, and the work thrown into gear ; and the burst of satisfaction as the saw dashed into it with a roar, and passed stead ily along from end to end laying off slab after slab without apparent effort, while the spare steam was rushing from the safety valve, scarcely weighted above its lowest pressure. There can now be no longer any doubt that we have th...

Legislative Council. March 28th, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 April 1844
Legislative Council. March 28///. 1844. The Governor laid on the table a bill to allow the Aboriginal natives to give evidence without the sanction of an onth ; observing, with reference to an act to the same effect passed in a former session, that such act had never re ceived the sanctioh of the home government, as some doubts had arisen W/hetlier it wasstrict.lv in accordance with the Euirlish law. An net hail now been sent out from home declaring the pre vious aet of that Council to be valid, which lie now laid on the table. His Excellency also observed, that a despatch had been received from the Set rotary of State relative to the act regulating the management of a certain class of Juvenile Emigrants. The aet had been highly approved of at home, and, with one exception, was to be recommended us a pro per form and precedent for other colonies. The exception was to the clause by which it was pro vided that the emigrants should be identified by the publication of their names in the...
THE TARIFF IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 April 1844
THE TARIFF IN NEW SOUTH WALES. We give below some extracts from an able article in the Sydney Morning Chronicle of De cember 20th. The observations upon Lord Stanley's dictatorial mode of legislating for the internal regulations of colonies, is only too true, and we believe is equally felt and lamented in all the colonies of the .British empire. The argu* menta in favour of a corn law we can not be sup posed to echo ; many of them are we believe, entirely fallacious, but we reprint them here be cause they contain some interesting information, and because we are always willing to do full jus tice to both sides of a question that so deeply in volves the interests of our own colony. — ' It would seem, from tiieten or of Lord Stanley'* letter 1° His Excellency the Go crnor, that uot only ours, but a*l colonial legislature* are prohibited from laying on any h igher discriminating duties upon imported articles, thaa such as are prescribed by the British Parliament. There ie really somethi...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 April 1844
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1844. We have just time to announce the arrival of IX M. colonial schooner Champion from India. The news she brings will be given in our next. The important proceedings of the Quarter Sessions have left us but scanty room for our usual leading remarks. We shall, probably, next week make some observations on the trial and execution of the boy Gavin, with a view to hold out, still further, the awful example that has been made. In the meantime, our readers will do well most seriously to reflect upon it.
[From the "Perth Gazette."] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 April 1844
[Ffom the « Perth Gazette.'] Confession , of the Murder of George Pollard. — To all parlies it must be consolatory to know, that on Friday night and Saturday morning, the unfortunate criminal confessed his guilt, and this in so ample and sincere a manner as to leave not a doubt on the mind of Mr. Sehoales, who received that confession, that anything remained behind. The substance of the confession was, that the first thoughts of com mitting the crime arose in his mind within jive minute* of the execution of the deed; that it was a sudden instigation — one which had been paral leled, but not frequently. The boy sat down to dinner with his victim without a thought har boured in hia mind of harm towards him. ile had made up his mind to murder the mother of the family that afternoon, and as he commenced his work about the farm while the lad Pollard was sleeping, the thought flashed across the mind of the primmer, that if he murdered the woman first, then a lad stronger than himself re m...
PHILOSOPHICAL INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 April 1844
PHILOSOPHICAL INSTITUTE. It is highly probable that many of our read ers are not aware of the existence of the above Institute in Perth j nay, it is not quite certain that they will believe it, even when the following report ol the opening lecture is before their eyes. To tell truth, even we ourselves, who are reason ably expected to know everything, and who do, indeed, come very near such expectation, were not aware of the formation of the institute until the day of the publication of our last No, when we received a communication from the learned Professor Love-of-specie, requesting us to make it known to the public that he would, at the sitt ing of the Institute on Thursday last, deliver a lecture on the natural histoiy ot an extinct spe cies of the order, tl Nnmisma,' supposed b'y se veral of the o'dest inhabitants to have formerly existed in this colony under the name of Sover eign ; not indeed as a production natural to this country; but as having been introduced, by a certain ...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 April 1844
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — As this colony is now compelled to take an interest in the complicated question of free trade and protective duties, and as the great majority of us are not qualified to discuss a sub ject requiring not merely special 6tudy, but particular habits of study and thought, a few remarks tending to clarify the discussion may not be inappropriate. It has very unfortunately happened (for it is by no means a consequence of the merits) that the free-trade party at home have become in a great degree identified with the democratic, and the protective-duty party with the aristocra tic or conservative, body. Thies is unfortunate, because it has prevented either party from ven turing to examine impartially the merits of the question. I am not now about to enter into an essay on political economy, although if any of my brother settlers wish to impugn the principles which I am about to lay down with a view to further elucida tion of the question,...

QUARTER SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 April 1844
QUARTER SESSIONS. The General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the colony was held on Wednesday last, be- fore W. H. Mackie, Esq., Chairman, and a full Bench of Magistrates. The calendar only con- tained four cases, but of these one was for wilful murder, and another for manslaughter. John Gavin, one of the lads recently sent out from the Parkhurst establishment, was indicted for the wilful murder of George Pollard, the son of a highly respectable settler on the Murray, to whom, he was apprenticed, by striking him with an adze. The prisoner was defended by R. W. Nash, Esq., assisted by J. Schoalea, Esq., Guardian of a certain class of Juvenile Emi- grants to which the prisoner belonged, and, being placed at the bar, pleaded not guilty. The Advocate-General stated the case for the prosecution, which rested entirely on circum- stantial evidence. Jane Pollard, mother of the deceased, being sworn, deposed as follows :— Jane Pollard, mother of the deceased : I remember Ash Wednesday, 21...
MEETING OF THE YORK BRANCH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. April 6, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 April 1844
MEETING OF THE YORK BRANCH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. April 9, 1844. According to requisition, a meeting was held this day, which was respectably, though not very nwmrronsty attended. The farming interest of the district was, however, very well represented. Henry 'Lander, Esq., was called to the chair, wlto explained Uic nature or me meeting, which, he conceived to be called for the purpose of con sidering the exigencies of the fanner generally. It would compribe labour in its full extent, the Squatting Act, and the protection of our pro duce. He considered that every subject whereby our condition could be ameliorated was lawful to be discussed by the meeting. Mr. S. £. 13 urges complained that it required 100 bushels of wheat to pay the wages of one labourer; and that our roads were impassable. The land regulations had destroyed the labour fund, and it was impossible for the settlor to go on with ruin staring Him in the face. It were far better to suspend operations entirely than to per...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 April 1844
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of (he Inquirer. Sin,— 1 »ro by your paper that the gentlemen of the Council met together lately to try if they could find out any law that would make better time* for us, but after talking about it twice, they could make nothing of it, end gave it up. Now my eon hae been reading in a book About what was done in England long ago, when the times were bad, and when the king and the gentlemen could not find out any good laws either. The book is called Shakespear, and to be sure a wonderful book it is to tell what did happen in those times. It goes on to tell how one Jack Cade, who was a clothier by trade, came among them, and Baid he would show them all how to make laws, and ordered his men to burn the law-books, 'or he would be the Parliament himself, and speak the laws out of his own mouth. He sat down i.nnn tnnrf«n.. ? and there he did make some fine Iaw« to be sure. The' first Ihw he made was that the fountain there should run with claret wine for a wh...
