WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 17,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 February 1841

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 17, 1841. One or two articles of a very official character have lately appeared in the columns of the Perth Gazette on the subjecfref the land claims —among others, a certain letter signed ' B.,' the writer of which, if not actually a member of government, has taken his cue from government dictation. Under these circumstances, we are surprised that the argument should have been so feeble, and the assertions so sweeping and general : the writer seems to have had access to all the official documents, but we cannot congratulate him on having made good use of them, and if the local government is inclined to battle the question, the sooner it finds another champion the better it will be for the cause in which it is interested. The fact ' that no claims were ever brought forward under the circular A of 1828,' is pro duced as an argument to shew that the early settlers were well aware, that they were not entitled to claim under it ; but the simple truth is, that no cla...

'The urJ r:f povernlng requires nn triprenliorslilp ; no ojir rl:ou!d meddle with il before having learned it.' — Trans* tkosi Uobtjie. In the affair of Mr. Andrews and the local government, which you noticed in lli« In-iuirer of the 20th Xov.f we are forcibly reminded with how Hi tie wisdotn the world is governed. It is, indeed, latnentuble to see the very great weakness — the imbecility of government, as exemplified in this matter. I have long observed the shifting nature, as well as the weakness, of the arguments — if they deserve the name — of our government, and nm happy to sec it thus shown up under the hand of its oliicial organ. Let us ex amine the merits of the casp. The government, in refusing the application of Mr. An drews, asserts tbiit it eamiot be nrcerled to, on account of the small sum expended in permanent improvements, it appearing that a very small proportion of those improve ments are of a ...

GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 February 1841

GARDENING. [In furnishing, -from 'time' to-time, information' on the culture of fruits and vegetables, we shall extract largely from the printed LectureB of Mr. Thomas Shepherd, delivered at the Mechanics'' School of Arts in Sydney. Our soil and climate' are so nearly assimilated to those of Sydney, that nearly alt of Mr. Shepherd's remarks upon' gardening in that country apply with, equal forcBf to Swan River; and this circumstance makes his? book of great value to us. It may be well to observe, that Mr. Shepherd' is a practical gardener in Sydney, and does not pretend to classical style either in writing or in speaking, and that when he uses the phrase ' this colony,' reference is made to N?w South, Wales. We commence onr extracts with the banana :] — 'The Banaxa. — The banana is a tropical fruit in great estimation at present among the higher classes in this colony ; but its cultivation is as yet very partial. Were the situations selected for the cultivation of the banana, I sm o...

(From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 February 1841

(From a correspondent.) Western Australian Company,— AUS TRALIND - MR. CLIFTON'S SPEECH. - As it seems probably that in the course of a few weeks a considerable body of people will have arrived at Leschenault under the auspices of the Western Australian Company, and as it appears to me, at least equally probably that many of them will not long remain there, I think it the duty of us all to point out to such persons the comparative ad- vantages of the much vaunted Australind, and of some other parts of the colony. Of the Port, one of the very important points to be attended to in forming a settlement, Mr. Clifton says that should he be happy enough to effect the contemplated improvements, then indeed it will be a harbour equal to any in the world, and far superior to every other in Western Aus tralia ; what this improvement is to be or what it is to cost he does not inform us, but suppose one hundred thousand pounds. Notwithstanding Mr. Clifton's assertion that above all the anchorag...

RURAL ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 February 1841

RURAL ECONOMY. [Thb following is the commencement of a series of paper*, oMig iugly furnished tons by a friend, on the subject of Agriculture, with reference to the improvements that hare lately taken place in Eng land. The papers wilt be continued from time to time, and will, it is hoped, afford instruction to our readers :]— English Agricultural Society. — From a great variety of causes, but from none more powerfully operating than the absence of leisure, must Agricultural Societies in this country fol low at a very humble distance indeed in the path of the career and more extensively useful ones of. the mother-country. Still there is no reason why they may not here be made useful in their degree, and it behoves every member of a community to use the means that may be in his power to assist in an object which is paramount to perhaps all others — that of increasing food for the human race. In this view also may the experience and opinions of the great agriculturists of England be m...

THE BOLD YOUNG HUSSAR. Oh who can help loving a bold young hussar? What magnificent creatures those officers are t Tiinre's Swiilit I'm sure, though he's not over tall, . How imposing his gait, aud how martial withal 1 Witli nostrils all wide, how majestic his pace I 1 wonder what foe could e'er look iu his face! Hear the clink of his spurs, see the turn of his toes ! There's fire in his eye, and there's fire iu his nose. Sucti a turtle in peace, such a tiger in war! Oh who can help loving a bold young lius&ar ? When he strides into Doull's, and calls out for a pie, How dvatlly tfrc-ftre of his dark -rolling eye 1 And then, so ferocious he dives iu his fork, You would think he was busy transfixing a Turk!

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 February 1841

To the Editor of the " Inquirer. " SIR,— On reading your paper of the 27th ultimo, I was not a little surprised at seeing in a leading article some rather sharp editorial remarks on the subject of the Police in the York district. As you have evidently been much misinformied on the subject, and through the medium of your paper are likely to misinform many others, I beg the fayour of a corner in the Inquire for the purpose of ac- quainting you and the public more accurately on the subject of the police ; premising, however, that as it is out of my official province, I should not have ventured to offer any remarks, had I not previously ascertained that the Govern- ment Resident was not disposed to do so. In the absence of any explanation from him, I think it devolves upon me, as a resident in the town, and consequently one who cannot but be well acquainted with the movements ot the police, to set the matter iu a correct light — more especially as you concede to your " friends at York t...
