THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 March 1841
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1S41. We hear, from private sources, that Her Majesty Queen Victoria was brought to bed of a Princess on the 21st November last. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN ! ! ! We observe in the Perth Gazette of Saturday last, a copy of the 'original instructions issued by her Majesty's Secretary of State' with regard to the protectors of natives. We have always understood that no instructions of any kind had been received by our local government as to the duties to be performed by these officers in this colony, and as in the instructions referred to, al lusion is made to the ' chief protector,' we sup pose that they are the ' original instructions' issued for the guidance of the protectors in New South Wales. However, we are glad to see them made public, as the probability is, that what was intended to be the rule in one place, would be adopted in another ; at all events, the docu ment is valuable as the first that we have seen at all bearing on the subject. We have always felt dissa...
THE COMPACT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 March 1841
THE COMPACT. [The following tale lias already once appeared in print. In its pre sent shape, it is drawn up partly from memory, un-l partly from a few louse notes yet remaining of the original' story.] Tue night was already far advanced, and still the officers of an Austrian regiment of Hussars sat round their mess table in Vienna, apparently with the same uneourtcous determination as that expressed ia one of Burns' inimitable songs — ' It is the moon, I ken her horn That's blinken in the lift sac hie ; She shines so bright to wyle us limae, But by my sooth she'll wait a wee !' and certainly, judging from the appearance of things, she was likely enough to wait for their departure rather longer than would have been consistent with her ditties to the rest of the world. The party consisted of nine persons, most of thorn being men in the very prime of manhood, but there were two or three among them who could scarcely have reached that age when men arc supposed to be able to act discreet...
To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 March 1841
To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' SlR, — In the ' Perth Gazette,' of 5th Decem- ber last, I observe that the leading article of that Journal comprises a 'report on the Botanical productions of the country, from York district to King George's Sound, by Mr. J. Drummond, &nbsp; Botanist' — and the Editor's promises to furnish the public with such observations as the report suggests. It is continued in his publication of 12th December, but as no observations appear and it is the latest paper of his which I possess, and I am about to start on an expedition to Par- ry's Inlet, or perhaps farther, I trouble you with a few remarks of my own which perhaps may be interesting to your readers. The first part of the report (and by far the most important) would lead one to infer that Mr. Drummond was the discoverer of a 'powerful vegetative poison' as he terms it, which destroys sheep, goats and cat- tle. How far it is fair in him to assume the me- rit of such a discovery (if there be any...
SPIRIT OF THE LONDON JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
SPIRIT OF THE LONDON JOURNALS. We perceive that attempts are now about being made throughout the country, but more especially the tow us in the manufacturing districts, to get up petitions against the administration of our foreign relations. As far as we can understand the drift of the reasoning employed by the parties, it is this : — Our position is insular, and we are not justified in interfering with the affairs of any other country. Should we be attacked, we are able, and should be willing, to defend ourselves ; but beyond sel (-defence, in no case ought we have recourse to arms. What is it to us that Turkey is either torn by intestine wars, or is partitioned by her neighbours — what is it to us that different European powers quarrel ubout the spoil, and the Continent is in volved in war? Our business is to trade, and not to fight. It might not be difficult to show, that even on the calcula tions of the most vulgar economy, arrangements by which war may be prevented are not to-b...
OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE RELATIVE TO REMISSION CERTIFICATES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE RELATIVE TO REMISSION CERTIFICATES. We publish below copies of a correspondence between Lord John Russell and Thomas Bland, Esq., on the subject of remission certificates. We have no room for any remarks, but it will be seen that what Lord John states to have been the intention of her Majesty's government with regard to these certificates, is directly contrary to what has been the practice in this colony : — '2SSouth-st.t Park Lane, Oct. 15, 1840. ' My Lord, — Being much interested in the colony of Western Australia, and connected with some of the principal settlers there, I take the liberty of requesting information on a point of considerable importance to them. ' Under Lord Glenelg's despatch of the 7th March, 1837, any settler who arrived in the colony previous to July, 1831, became entitled to surrender any portion of his land, and to a re mission of Is. 6d. per every acre so surrendered in future purchases. The practice in the colony has been, on such su...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — I have been informed, I know not whether it be true, that the Directors of the Western Australian Bank have held meetings to determine on what offer to make to Goliah ; that they have made an offer which has been rejected. I cannot understand all this. First, I am not aware that the Directors have received any power from the shareholders to offer to sell the concern, or indeed to dispose of it in any way, or to form a junction witli any bank. Second, I cannot conceive, if the Directors had the power, why they should wish to get rid of the concern, of which they have the direction to a certain exteat. Are they not satisfied with the rate of profit — 40 per cent. ? Or what so desirable is there in Goliah either to us or to the public, that we should be the party to make the offer to join a bank which, I am told, divides only 8 per cent. ? Do pray, Sir, inform us, so far as you can, on all these points. The public, it appears to ...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Having no regular occupation, being only a looker-on in this busy place, I survey the passing scene, and have paid some attention to the acts of the local government, and as some of these ap pear to be very extraordinary, and to depend on the mere will of a single individual, influenced by whatever motives, not an abstract love of justice, I think it my bounden duty to devote a part of my leisure to expose some of the most glaring of these acts. Indeed my love of justice is so great — for which I pray you to believe I take no cre dit to myself, as it depends, doubtless, on some bump in my cranium, placed there by no act or will of my own — that I cannot see any act of in justice committed without wishing to take part with the sufferer. Such, however, being the fact, the consequence is I set about this expose with feelings of great pleasure — with absolute delight. The subject I have chosen for my first essay ia Land Claims A v. B. It appears that in...
To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — In your last week's paper, I observe an account of a public meeting, held on the Middle Swan, taking into consideration measures for in creasing missionary labours in that district. Now, Mr. Editor, it appears very strange to me that the friends of that meeting, and especially the Hon. the Commandant, should be ignorant of the fact, that the ground on which they are proceeding is not tenable. If I am correct, the Executive Government have imposed on the Wesleyan Society in Perth certain conditions — viz., that in case a stipend should be allowed to their minister on any clause of the act whatever, he (the said minister) would have to be wholly supported from this source and the contributions of his congregation. Now, Mr. Editor, far be it from me to sup pose that the Executive Government here intend to act otherwise than impartially, because, as men holding high and responsible situations, and en trusted with public monies, they are bound to a...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
WRDXB3DAY, MAROU 2i, 18U. We have now before us the report, up to Mid summer last, of the Commissioners of the Colonial Land and Emigration Board. The affairs of Western Australia, which in former reports have been very shortly disposed of, occupy a consider able space in this ; indeed, the Commissioners seem to have expended a great deal of time ar.d trouble in proposing alterations affecting this colony, and in bringing forward arguments in Bupport of them ; it is to be hoped, however, that the only result will be the waste of their own words and labour. The measures which they recommend to the Secretary of State are summed up by themselves as follow : — 1. — That a large addition be forthwith made to the surveying department. 2. — That all country lands be sold in future at a fixed uniform price. 3. — That they be sold in sections of not less than one-half of a square mile. 4. — -That the price for these lands be Til per acre. 5. — That a tax of 3d. per acre be laid on all the as...
ACCOUCHEMENT OF HER MAJESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
ACCOUCHEMENT OF HER MAJESTY. (London Gazette Extraordinary, Novem ber 21, 1840.) ' This afternoon, at ten minutes before two- the Queen was safely delivered of a Princess : his Royal Highness Prince Albert, her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent, several Lords of her Majesty's most Honorable Privy Council, and the Ladies of Her Majesty's bedchamber, being present.' The Observer gives the following particulars. ' On Friday her Majesty and [Prince Albert walked in the garden of the Palace, and her Ma jesty took her seat at the dinner table, and con* tinued apparently in her usual health till 11 o'clock, when she retired to rest, no suspicion being then entertained of the near approach of those sufferings which providentially have ter minated in a manner so satisfactory to every branch of her august family, as well as to the de light of her loyal and devoted subjects.

INDIAN NEWS. "The world is out of joint." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 March 1841
INDIAN NEWS. ' TJie world is out of joint.' The rage for war, wherever it exists, will be damped by the news from India, which shows that we have enough on our hands, without the addition of a war with France. In Afghanistan we have committed the same mistake as elsewhere, of taking up the cause of the wrong man. In tiiis case Dost Mahomnied is the Mehemet Ali, and the Schah Soodjah is somewhat more contemptible than the Sultan. AU that we have done, at an expense of more than four millions sterling, in the late brilliant expedition, appears to be crumbling to pieces again. The conquest was easy to us, but tho retention of the conquest, or the maintenance of the miserable King on the throne on which we have set him, is another matter. The time will come when these remarks of the Times upon the state of affairs in Affghanistan will have their ap plication, vmtato nomine, to our handiwork in Syria and Egypt— ' We have secured nothing. We have endangered much. We have gained not a siug...
