THE INQUIRES WEDNESDAY AUGUST 19th, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 August 1840

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 19th. 1840.     It will be seen by our report of the last meet- ing of the Legislative Council, that the Bill to al- low the Aborigines to give information and evi- dence in criminal cases has passed into a law. It is a matter of some surprise to us that there has been little or no opposition to this bill, for in our opinion it is open to very considerable ob- jection both as regards the principle of the bill, and the way in which the several provisions are to be carried out. The bill is declared on all hands to be "merely experimental," but we much question the policy of trying experiments on such dangerous ground — besides our objections to the bill are principally of a moral nature, and are not to be overturned by any question of expedi- ency, for that which is morally wrong, must be politically weak ; and that it is morally wrong to allow an irreclaimed, and irreclaimable savage,   restrainded by no ties religious, moral, o...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY AUGUST 26th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 August 1840

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 26th. 1840. Ill another part of our Journal will be found certain resolutions passed at a Meeting of the ' Ladies' Association, auxiliary to the Western Australian Colonial Church Association,' upon which we purpose making a few remarks. The object of the principal Society is to sup ply religious instruction to the British Colonies, and to British residents throughout the world, by sending out clergymen, catechists, and school masters to such of our countrymen in foreign lands as may require spiritual instruction, and truly happy are we to see that the ladies of this colony are prepared to exert their influence in furtherance of such an object. In the first place, the Society to which the ladies have now lent their valuable aid is manifestly in want of assist ants ; no man can doubt that the object it has in view is a most worthy one, but we certainly think that in this colony at least such object has been but imperfectly carried out. It is said that this is owing i...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer," [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 August 1840

CORRESPONDENCE. ? vi/i/— — - \ To the Editor of the ' Inquirer,' T Sin,— At this time when the public mind appears to be turned toward the subject of banking, I beg to call the se ' rious attention of the shareholders to one point connected .with the future welfare, perhaps even the continued ex istence of our little bank ; I mean the charge of commis sion at present made on deposits. I believe the profits of the banker arise from these two following sources ; lending (our bank lends as yet I think only in the way of discount,)— lending on interest, firstly its own paid up capital ; secondly a certain safe proportion of money deposited with him ; and thirdly a proportion of the specie which he receives in exchange for his notes, or in other words his loans are partly made in his own notes in stead of specie, and by charging hib customer commission ou the amouut of business done. Though there may be a difference of opinion as to what \ would be a fair rate of interest to be charged, ...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 August 1840

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Mr. Inquirer— Your friend of the Perth Gazette quar rels with the size of your paper. I think myself that your sheet contains as much matter as that of the Perth Gazette, (I eay nothing of the quality) but what say you to malting it larger ! this would shut the mouth of Mr. P. G. and oblige many of your friends, among others licit. We are obliged to ' Mum' for his hint, and beg to in form him that we have always contemplated increasing the size of the Inquirer at a future day, but at present tiiis is impracticable. The want of bauds to perform the operative part, is most sensibly felt by us ; we believe that our first, compositor is by far the best in this colony, but he cannot do impossibilities ! arrangements have been made some time ago for the importation of compositors for the use of this journal, and as soon as they shall arrive, the Inquirer will most probably be increased to twice its present size. In the meantime we hope that 'Alum' and our ...

RURAL AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 September 1840

RURAL AFFAIRS. ' A method of obtaining a greater nunibcr of one sex, at tlie option of the proprietor, in tlie breeding of live stock.' We are induced to give the following extract from the Quarterly Journal of Agriculture, in the hope it may afford a useful hint to those of our brother colonists, who are oc cupied in sheep farming. We are aware that an opinion directly contrary to that sought to be maintained in the following paper, obtains generally in this colony, but may we not be persisting in a false system ? the results as under are very decisive, far too much so to be accidental, aud we trust that some of our friends will think it worth their while to try the ex periment. We shall be very glad to know from any of our readers, how far their experience has made them acquaint ed with this matter. ' In the Aunales de 1' Agriculture Francaise, vols. 37 and 33, some very interesting experiments are recorded, which have lately been made in France, on the Breeding of Live Stock. M. ...

Is the o-!ice of kings printer in this colony a pa tent place 1 If so perhaps the patent is nearly out and you are looking for the re-version : but sir, I am told, that the press used by the government printer, is a government press, if it be so you can scarcely have any hope of this sort.
