MISCELLANEOUS. CHARACTER OF LAFAYETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 May 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. CHARACTER OF LAFAYETTE. (From the ' Etudes sur les Orateurs Parlementaires'by Timoru) Opinion ha6 its prejudices, and thus it has been said of three Liberals, namely, Lafitte, Diipoiit (de 1'Eure), and Lafayette, that Lafitte did not make his own speeches, that Dupont was a good sort of a man and nothing else, and that Lafayette was a simpleton. Now Lan* tie has the most extended and clearest financial minrt of our time; the good sense of Dupont, as far as it goes, could hew out more speeches than one ; and then Lafayette fs only a simpleton — is he? Oh, very simple, I confess ; for he confided, like a lot of us other simpletons, in the promises of the governocracy of July. He has fancied (the simpleton !) that he could meet with kings totally unlike other kings ; that prople liked liberty because they strained their throats in singing liberal bra vuras ; that the golden age had ' returned, and that we should let the reins of power fall on its neck, and that it was pe...

CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 May 1841

CHARADE. I em thin, I am thick, I am smooth, lam rough, I am bard, I am soft — as an - i ler-down muff; I am black, I am white, I am dark, I am fair, I am brown, I am red, I am grey I declare ; But lest you should think me of every hue, 1 confess that I naturally never am blue, I never am scarlet, I never am green, Though oft of a yellowish cast I am seen. Then I'm long, and I'm short, and crooked, and straight, And though very light, am a thing of some Weight, For without me the dandy no dandy would be, And the lover most likely would sigrli hopelessly ; For very few ladies — however they flirted — Would look twice at a beau whom I bad deserted. I eo often am false, that I strongly excite The suspicion of many by day and by night, And e'en when I'm true, I ain sorry to 6ay That my character 's frequently taken away. Yet I do not complain, for he who plays double Must look to be doubted by all for his trouble. Yes, like the rest of the world, I am false, and I'm true, Bat am attache...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 19,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 May 1841

WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 1841. We are glad to observe that the good old custom of commemorating the anniversary of the foundation of the colony, is not likely this year to be forgotten. It may be 6aid that the occasion is the only national ceremony that is yet practised amongst us, and, being perfectly free from any political or party feeling, is one that recommends itself to all classes of inhabitants. We are strong advocates for anything that tends to promote the social intercourse of our brother colonists, and to induce a feeling of nationality amongst us ; with out this latter a people can never become great, and it is precisely on such public occasions, wherein each actor finds himself a part of the one great whole, that such a feeling is engendered, and afterwards supported ; and it is probably for this reason that we find that lawgivers of all ages, while carefully attending to the governance of a people, have never failed to encourage its pastimes. Our own gloriouB mother-country ...

Mr. Phillips the Government Resident, was called to the chair, and stated that his object in calling the meeting was to propose a subscription for a church in Albany, one of the principal towns of the col ony.

To 1 he Editor of the 'Inquirer.' ? Sin, — Seeing the va^t advantages (o be derived, I expected that the projectors of the Western Australian Joint-Stock Bank would have had the satisfaction of carrying out their work of pub lic utilily and beneiit unopposed by any erroneous statements — much less did I suppose it possible that th(j editor of a public journal would have been misled to publish as fact what a little inquiry wouid have shown him to be unfounded, and in the very paper too in which he announces himself as a guide to those who are unacquainted with banking operations, and in which he informs his readers that it would be as well for him to make some remarks for their deliberate consideration. I should have been grateful to the Editor of the Perth Gazette if he had followed out this modest announcement. As I wish to shorten as much as possible this letter, I will leave the Editor of the Perth Gi zette- and pass on to call the attention of the public to what really occurred ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Thursday, May 13, 1841.   On his Excellency moving the order of the day, — which was for the second reading of the Licensing Act,— G. Leake, Esq., moved for a return of the aggregate amount of lands conveyed from one party to another for the year 1889 —90, and the amount of money paid for the same. Agreed to. Mr. Leake gave notice that it was his intention at the next meeting, on the 20th instant, to call the attention of the Council to several papers and documents laid on the table relative to the land returns. The Council then passed to the second reading of the Licensing Act, and a variety of amend ments were discussed in committee ; amongst the rest, one proposed by the Hon. J. S.

The hon. member objected to the form of the title "to renew and amend an act," &c., and thought it better that the old act should be at once repealed by the new ; and that the title should run "an  ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 May 1841

WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1841. We call Xhe attention of our readers to our report of the debate in the Legislative Council on Thursday last, on the resolutions moved by Mr. Leake, as these resolutions, and the remarks they called forth, are well calculated to convey Bound information on matters connected with this colony. The speech delivered by Mr. Leake on the occasion, arid which we have printed entire, is beyond all compare the best that has been deli vered in the Council in our time, and, if it be desirable that things should be placed in their true light, cannot fail of being extremely benefi cial to the colony, and useful to those whose scanty information respecting it has been gathered from less genuine sources. The discussion was so ample, that very little remains for us to say on the subject — even our old friends the Land and Emigration Commis sioners must escape for the present, satisfied as we are at the very just and able manner in which their inconsistencies have been point...
