THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1641. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 March 1841

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1641. We last week published the Governor's reply to the memorial relative to the boundaries on the Avon. The document affords ample proof that the executive have given to the subject their most earnest attention, and that they are prepared to work witn tne settlers tor tne arrangement ot this very difficult question : there may be one or two points on which a difference of opinion may exist, but, as a whole, the reply evinces an anxiety on the part of the government to comply with all the reasonable wishes of the memorialists. We purpose making a few remarks on this subject, but it is really so beset with difficulties, that as fast as we dispose of one, another springs up in its place, and we fear that, in spite of the wishes of all parties to come to a settlement, it will be very long before the end is accomplished. With regard to the Governor's reply to the memorial, it appears to us that, in order to make the plan sug gested in paragraph 6, and the measure co...

TRIAL OF JOHN WADE FOR THE ROBBERY AT THE TREASURY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 March 1841

TRIAL OF JOHN WADE FOR THE ROBBERY AT THE TREASURY. A sessions of the Court of Quarter Sessions, especially appointed by proclamation, was held in the Court-house, Perth, on Thursday last, for the purpose of trying John Wade, who had been committed, on the evidence of William Long- worth and others, for the above offence. It will be remember that Longworth was himself ap- prehended in the first instance, and committed to take his trial for his share of the robbery, but while in confinement he made such disclosures as to lead to the apprehension of Wade, against whom Longworth was admitted as evidence for the Queen. The case excited considerable inte- rest, and although the trial lasted 18 hours, the Court remained crowded from first to last. One reason for the interest felt by many was, that it was thought that others were concerned in the robbery, and it was expected that during the ex- aminations something would come out to impli- cate them, but nothing definite was elicited on th...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 March 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the a "Inquirer." Sir, — Observing in your paper a paragraph which had escaped me before in which your cor- respondent from Augusta says "had it not been for American Vessels calling in occasionally, we might have starved under the fostering care of government." I conceive it necessary to deny the assertion so far as the government is concerned, as on all occasions when I have been going to the South- ward I have had direct and positive orders to call there, and nothing but contrary winds and in one instance the dangerous illness of one of the passengers prevented my doing so. With respect to '"Tea and other domestic comforts"   the inhabitants of Augusta lost little or nothing to the best of my recollection, by the Schooner not visiting them, except a chest of medicine which I once had on board. By inserting the above, you will much oblige, Your obedient servant, F. HELPMAN, Late in the command of H. M. Col. Schooner Champion. [We will ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 March 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. Yankee Discipline. General Howe's army rnnning ra ther 6hort of fresh provisions previous to their descent ou Long Island, a foraging party was sent out one night to drive off, if possible, some of the rebels' cattle. The pro vincial watchword for the guard was Cambridge, and pass word Swamp. It happened the foragers stumbled un awares on one of the advance provincial sentinals, who hearing them approach, bawled out, in the true Yankee dialect, 'Cambridge!' to which no answer being given, repeated it again — 'Cambridge, I 6ay once more; if you don't say Swamp I'll shoot.' Upon which the British par ty instantly cried ' Swamp.' ' Pass,' was the reply. In consequence of which, without the least interruption, they drove off a very large herd of fut black czttle. An Indian's Creed. — A 6trong prejudice exists on the part of the natives in India against European education and Christianity.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Council Chamber, Friday, March 5, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 March 1841

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Council Chamber, Friday, March 5, 1641. The minutes of the former meeting having been read, — His Excellency moved the second reading of a Bill to renew and amend an Act intituled ' An Act to impose certain duties on imported spirituous liquors.' On the motion for the third reading, W. Tan ner, Esq., stated that as there appeared to be some doubt as to the power of the Council to repeal an Act, he should move, as an amendment, that th e Act should remain in force until the 1st July, 1844 ; as the colony was in a growing 6tate, and many changes might become necessary, he thought that this was the most convenient method. The Hon. the Colonial Secretary had never understood that the Council had not the power of repealing its acts, but probably Mr. Nash would state his opinion on the subject. The Hon. the Advocate- General stated that, by the royal instructions, the Council was entitled to repeal — at least there was nothing in them to prohibit their exercising this...

RURAL ECONOMY. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Continued from No. 90.] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 March 1841

RURAL ECONOMY. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Continued from No. 30.] I find in the journal two papers by Mr. Hand ley and Mr. Pusey, on some experiments with ploughs, principally with a view to ascertain the comparative merits of swing and wheel ploughs. From these I shall extract rather largely, be cause they go far to shew, if not to prove to the satisfaction of every one, that the wheel plough has in ordinary cases a very decided advantage over the swing ; which is contrary, I believe, to the prevailing opinion. Indeed, the swing plough appeal's, up to this time, to be gaining ground, and gradually driving the other out of the field. Mr. Handley, in speaking of swing ploughs, says, 'My predilection has certainly been in favour of that implement ; if, therefore, iu balanc ing the advantages and disadvantages of both. I decide in favour of ploughs with wheels, it is the result of conviction based upon a series of im partial and, I think, conclusive experiments. Wheels keep the rub...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 March 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — In a letter signed ' A Wesleyan,' which appeared in the Perth Gazette of the 20th ultimo, the writer, after Stating the result of the applications to the local govern ment from the WeBleyan Methodists in Perth for a stipend for their minuter under the late act of the Legislature, proceeds to give his view of what the bearing of the act will be on other denominations of Christians here. In doing so, he has alluded to the Colonial Church Society in such a manner as renders it necessary to inform tiie public correctly on the subject. When noticing the exertions lately made in the Swan districts to enable the inhabitants to claim the government stipend for their ministers, the writer states the people were urged to com plain, on the ground that the Colonial Church Society was about to fail, and could not support their minister here after this year. This representation, from whatever source it comes, has not the slightest foundation...

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 March 1841

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10,1841. The meeting held on Wednesday last for the purpose of taking measures for the iinjionation of Indian labourers into this colony, \s one in which nearly. all of us are greatly, interested. Want of labour is the only thing that prevents this colony from at once assuming the position it ia in other respects so well qualified to fill, and we consider that the executive is fully justified in going to al most any length in order to relieve the colonists from its pressure. Although the want of field labourers has been very severely felt in country districts, the incon venience experienct d by the inhabitants of the towns from the difficulty of procuring domestic servants, has been still greater, and as we appre hend that, in spite of the depressed state of the labouring classes in England, it is vain to expect any supply from that quarter for the present, his to India that we must all look for relief from our difficulties. Our local government has certainly, in th...
