THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 3,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 February 1841
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 3, 1841. A remarkable event has taken place! — the Perth Gazette has at last assumed a fixed posi- tion ! After wandering about for some years in a most lamentable state of uncertainty, compared to which the hesitation recorded by the fabulist of the ass between two bundles of hay was decision itself, that journal has quietly settled down into a thin-and-thick supporter of the government. Af- ter having balanced itself with considerable inge- nuity for nine years, now on one leg, now on another, and having performed sundry gyrations that would put "Jim Crow" on his mettle, it has lost its equilibrium at last, and gone bump to the ground, where, retiring from the stage of public favour, it may yet enjoy its otium cum dtgnitate under the broad shade of government protection ! Weary of attempting to argue both sides of a question without giving an opinion upon either, it has delegated its task to others, and will hence forth speak such words only as its masters sha...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 February 1841
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' I see, Mr. Editor, a public notice, that the Governor, after two whole years' consideration, has determined to allow certain parties to buy the fee-simple of their lands in lieu of performing location duties on them. This leads me to ask, in the first place, is the government prepared to give me my fee-simple at once, on my tendering the money ? or am I to be kept out of it for months, as I understand others have been, by the dilatoriness of government, who have not got the deeds ready ? But, unfortunately for me, even supposing that I were willing to pay so high a price for this exemption, I am not included among the number to whom this intended boon is offered, as I have twenty-one years in which to do the location duties under schedule A, and the facilities are offered only for lands under sche dules B and C. Perhaps it is intended to allow parties who came under schedule A to slip through under cover of B, and thus government may ...
To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 February 1841
To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — A correspondent of the Perth Gazette^ under the signature 'A.,' lays before the public a very plain statement of a very plain subject. Really, Sir, if a stranger were to take up the last number of the Perth Gazette, and, after reading the letter, read the regulations of 1829, he must suppose the writer of that letter to be fighting with the air, as nothing could be more clear than that the settlers of — 29 are entitled to land in the manner he states : until he remember the expres sion, in the first paragraph of the letter, 'those persons who are opposed to these claims.' Now really, Mr. Editor, I never heard of any one who was opposed to those claims except the local go vernment, and the editor of the Perth Gazette ; and I think the writer must be mistaken if he suppose any one else would object to so just de mands. I write this letter merely to call your at tention to this subject, and hope that you will shortly take it up, and handle it wi...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sih, — I wish to know through the medium of your pa per,, what has become of the subscription that was made in behalf of Jane Green: I have been informed that nearly £20 were collected, but no account has ever been rendered to the subscribers. Perhaps Mr. Editor you will have the goodness to make some inquiry into this matter ; and by bo doing you will greatly oblige An inquiring Subscriber. (In answer to our correspondent we can only say that we hare inquired of the guardian of Jane Green, and he has neither received any money on her account, nor knows anything about the matter. We entirely agree with our correspondent that the subscribers ought to be informed what has been done with the money, and we shall renew our inquiries on the subject.— Ed.]

THE GONDOLA. A Tale of Venice. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 February 1841
THE GONDOLA. A Tale of Venice. [Although, for many reasons, the action of the following tale has been Hied at a distant epoch, the catastrophe recorded actually oc curred a very few years ago at Venice. Whatever may be the merits of the production, the main, in fact the only, incident of the story is perfectly true— an additional instance, if one were required, that ' truth is stranger than fiction.'] They who wish to know what Venice is without the trouble of going there to see it, wi'l do well to study the two famous pictures by Canalletti, now in the gallery of the Louvre at Paris, as they will convey a better idea of this ancient city than is to be gained by any means short of actual survey. Borne of Turner's on the same subject are well enough; clear spirited, and original — but the truth of the scene is destroyed by a straining after extra ordinary effect, and an unnatural affection fur ' Indian Red,' and ' King's Yellow.' No ; study Canalletti, I say, in order to have a corre...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.', You tell up, Mr. Editor, that your attention has been drawn to the uncertainty of tlie lime of sailing of the Champion. Mjr attention, Sir, Iim long since been drawn to the uncertainly of every thing connected vrith this ffovormnerjt ; ko much so, that I always think of th'm udmini-irdihn as U'...cv:a:niy itwif. A.r«l yd, pr.ra'l^v.oa! a« it may appear, there is a degree of certainty about it. On Tuesdays, Sir, does the Gazette, the organ of government, reach the banks of the Up per Swan ; on Monday of last week, beinsr, by some chance, a day earlier than -usual, did I re ceive, through that paper, a notification that on that day, the 25th, the colonial schooner would be despatched to King George's Sound ; which led me to reflect on the uncertainty and the cer tainty of this government. I have not heard whether the Champion has yet sailed ; but on seeing this notice, I began to calculate on the certainty that I should be in good time, had I wished ...
THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 10, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 February 1841
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 10,1841. We are much surprised that the Perth Gazette should have treated so lightly the serious charges preferred against it by us. That journal may be on excellent good terms with itself, and well pleased with the very comfortable arrangements that have been made respecting it, but we think it would have displayed better taste if it had re- strained its joy, and eaten its 'solid pudding' in silence. This edible, if we are rightly informed as to its nature, is one of no light digestion, and requires exceeding caution in the consumption ; we advise our contemporary, therefore, not to talk too much during his tneals, for if a piece solid, huge, and angular, should happen to stick by the way, the consequences might be awful ! It is recorded that various aliments are in use among authors to cause the ideas to flow : thus Johnson is reported to have written under the influence of port wine ; Byron, at least at one season of his life, delighted in a compound known to...
