THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 April 1841

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7,1841. It will be 6een by our report of the meeting of the Legislative Council on Thursday last, that hi? Excellency postponed for a fortnight the in troduction of his bill to levy a tax of one half penny per acre upon all ihe assigned lands of the colony ; thus affording time for the members to consider the subject, and opportunity to the pub lic of expressing their sentiments either for or against the measure. We earnestly trust that the time thus given will not be thrown away, but that memorials will be poured in from all parts of the nniintn* av nvaaai vf- nt' thu cPltlpi'c' nr»mr»lf-fo A\s approval of the measure; for although there is little or no probability that the bill will pass, the Council itself being hostile to it, yet it is essential that the government at home should be convinced that it was rejected not merely by a few of our chief land proprietors, but in accordance with the wishes and opinions of the entire community. We therefore call most earne...

COUNTER-PETITION. To his Excellency the Governor, and the Honourable the Legislative Council. T/ie memorial of the undersigned, inliabitants of Western Australia, Humbly sheweth, — That your memorialists have seen the petitions which have been pre sented to the Legislative Council respecting the religious condition of the colony, and more particularly of the pressing wants of the towns of Fremantle aud Albany. That your memorialists are fully sensible of the deep importance of this matter as regards the well being of our community, and deeply deplore the want of Christian ministers, and of religious institutions for the promotion of education. That your momorialists are therefore cheerfully prepared to share with their fellow colonists, the burden of additional taxation to aid in the erection of churches and chapels, and the introduction of christain ministers, but they cannot concur with those who desire that the general and public funds should be available only for the ministers o...

The petition of the undersigned, inliabitants of the Middle and Upper Swan, Sheweth, — That your petitioners fcel it their duty to implore your earliest attention to the melancholy deficiency of religious instruction in the colony. That, in pointing out this deficiency, your petitioners are reminded of the fact, that government has as yet done little or nothing towards the maintenance of the Christian religion in any of the extensive rural districts ; nor yet in any of the towns of the colony, save only at its seat of govern ment. That your petitioners are thus painfully made to feel as though, by the government, the highest interest of the colony were neglected : even while small associations of its settlers (in the hope that clergymen might he given them) have enterproedthe erection of not fewer than seven placet of public worship. That your petitioners believe the de...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 April 1841

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14,1841. We are very glad to see that the Bill for the imposition of a land-tax, and which is to be READ A FIRST TIME TO-MORROW, 13 meeting with a resolute opposition ; an opposition, too, based on the unanimous feeling of the settlers that the measure is unjust and inexpedient, and should not be acceded to by any one who has the real interests of the colony at heart. Our own opinions of the measure have been pretty loudly expressed on more than one occasion, and right glad are we that our fellow-colonists have taken up the question in a proper spirit, and have evinced their determination to assert their rights against the dkta of hungry commissioners at home, who, however they may be esteemed in other places, have lost all claim to respect in this part of the world. Already are petitions, pray ing against the passing of the bill, in the course of signature, some of which will be presented in Council to-morrow ; and if all are not ready at that time, it will be attr...

XVI. THE SETTLEMENT OF AUSTRALIND. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 April 1841

XVI THE SETTLEMENT OF AUSTRALIND. The chief Commissioner and first body of emigrants to establish the settlement of Australind in our immediate vicinity, have just arrived at their destination, Port Leschenault. The settlers are to be located on sec tions of one hundred acres each. They have no doubt duly considered the advantages, and disadvantages of concentration, and having made their election &c, they should not be discouraged at meeting with obsta cles, which are inevitable in all new settlements, but like Britons begin with a determination to overcome them. They have the advantage of being backed by a colony possessing surplus supplies, with a practical knowledge of the soils, seasons, and mode of proceeding, in establishing new farms, and such advantages are inestimable. Sincerely wishing them success equal to tlieir most sanguine expectations, we will venture to offer a few practical observations, which as being generally applicable to Wes tern Australia, we hope ma...

XV ON COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 April 1841

XV. OX COL0NIZATI0V. We should have refrained from entering on the general question of Colonization, which embraces so wide a field of discussion, had the system on which Western Australia was founded been left undisturbed ; but it being generally understood that we are to become a subject for experiment — that a new theory is to be applied to us, which time has not yet proved to be sound in practice — and the short experience gained in the matter being anything but satisfactory — to have remained wholly silent on a subject of such vital interest to the colony would have been an abandonment of duty. Violent and sudden changes are always to be deprecated, and nothing can be more opposite than the two systems under consideration. We shall therefore endeavour to show, if it be not yet too late, that the new theory is inapplicable to us ; that we have been successful under the old one, not withstanding great discouragement ; ami that in South Australia, where it is uow being tried, and ...

XVIII. CONCLUDING REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 April 1841

XVIII. CONCLUDING REMARKS. Our report drawing towards a close, a few observations yet remain before we conclude. The important step of emigration being decided on, we know of no place where the previous habits, feelings, or even prejudices of an Englishman, will receive less check by the change, than in Western Australia. It is a purely British colony, where the free institutions of England have been transplanted, and sedulously cultivated. The laws as they existed in 1829 ; trial by jury ; an independent magistracy ; a registra tion of property ; the absence of convicts j the inhabitants an unmixed British race, undivided by political, religious, or social dissention ; and an unfettered Press, which, using the utmost freedom in discussion, is never theless remarkable for its gentlemanly tone, and the scrupulous delicacy with which it veils the privacy of domestic life. The difficult pioneer-duty of forming the outlines of a new colony has been accomplished, leaving the comparativel...
