To the Editor of the "Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 September 1840

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir — While in the bush on the night of Saturday last, I think a little before 8 o'clock, I observed a very brilliant meteor, the night was rather cloudy — falling through the atmosphere. It in some measure resembled what is com- monly called a falling star, but was more red and left a considerably lengthened track of light behind it. I had no good guide as to its bearing, but suppose it to have been   nearly in the East but perhaps rather to the South of that point. I send this thinking it may be interesting to some of your readers : at the same time perhaps you can inform me or I may obtain the information through your means, what precisely are Asteroids. By the form of the word I should certainly suppose it to be correctly enough used by a talented writer on Meteorology in the Perth Gazette, but yet I have some idea that this name was given by Herschel to some particular planets. I certainly do not remember that the term is commonly a...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 9th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 September 1840

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 9th. 1840. We are receiving, almost daily, complaints about the Post Office, post masters, and letter carriers, in fact there is one loud outcry against the inefficiency of this department from one end of the colony to the other. In the Gazette of the 28th. March last, is a notice to the effect that the Mail from Perth to Guildford closes at 3 oclockon Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, 'and is dispatched immediately afterwards.' Now allowing 3 hours for the messenger to make his way between the two towns, persons on send ing to Woodbridge, should be enabled to get their letters at 6 o clock ; but are they so enabled? most assuredly not, the mail five times out of six does not reach Guildford until 9 or even 10 at night, and instances within our own knowledge have occurred of the mail not having arrived from Perth even on the following morning. With regard to the York Mail, we believe that the understanding is that it shall be forwarded from Crttilflfbrti twice in ...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Ouildford, August 28th. 1840. Sir — I am sorry to observe in the ' Inquirer' of the 26th. instant, that you have in some measure been led into error with respect to the efficient state of the Guildford Bench of Magistrates* Your correspondent whose motives I believe to have been in every way proper adduces a recent case of two delinquents having escaped punishment be cause the Guildford Bench had not the means of enforcing it ; I am however happy in the ability to state that, though we have found and still find a very serious inconvenience in having no lock-up Cell, or Stocks in a place which is the focus of communication to all parts of the colony, and con taining three Public Houses, no instance of the kind has ever occurred 6ince the establishment of a Court of Petty Sessions in this district. I am now in correspondence with the Local Government on the subject of a Lock-up Cell &c., at Guildford, which I believe it is the intention to al l...

ARCHIMEDES SCREW. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 September 1840

ARCHIMEDES SCREW. It has been said that tnis is the age of invention, and 'certainly when we reflect on the vast Improvements that are almost daily taking place in England in mechanical science alone, we are by no means inclined to question the truth of the saying. Among other novelties we observe that the Archimedes Screw has been applied to the pro pelling of vessels ; the screw being worked .in its turn by the power of steam. One steam vessel named the *' Arch imedes,' has been already fitted up with this new machin ery, and has made several very successful experimental trips. . The report of Captain Evans R. N., who was com missioned by the Lords of the Admiralty to inquire into the nature and advantages of this new power, has been oblig ingly communicated by a friend — we extract the following 'In my trip on board the Archimedes, I observed that the «crew possessed the following advantages over the common ,- paddle wheel. v ?

CORRESPONDENCE. -000—       To the 'Editor of the ' Inquirer, Albany, King George's Sound, August 13th. 1840. Sir, — I beg to call your attention to a fact of a very mo- mentous nature, and I shall feel obliged by your affording an explanation if you know of any, of the reasons which in duced the Colonial Government to adopt that measure, which undoubtedly has been the direct cause of the calami ty to which I allude. At present there is neither Rice nor Flour, nor Bread, to be purchased in Albany. The greater portion of the in habitants are altogether destitute of any private store of the said necessaries ; and so far as I can learn, there is no rea son for supposing that any supply will be thrown into the place before the end of September or the beginning of Oc tober. The Commissariat is also so short of flour, that so far from the inhabitants of Albany being able to procure any assistance from that quarter, I understand that the military will...

Erratum — In our last No., in the communication on the Land Question, at line three from the end, for ' he would give' read he would not-give. WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 16th. 1840. Of all the subtle agents at work to destroy the social system of this colony none acts more pow erfully than the besetting sin of drunkenness. The habit of immoderate drinking so inveterate among our lower classes — and with shame be it spoken, not altogether confined to them, has been, and is me one great pestilence with which this colony is cursed. Our supply of labour, small as it is under any cirenmstances, is rendered yet smaller by this fatal excess ; the actual strength of the colony bears no proportion to its apparent means, for a considerable share of these means remains unemployed from years end to years end, prostrated before the demon of intemperance. What industrious settler is there amongst us who has not felt the ill effects of this ? lias he not seen his buildings left unfinished, his work undon...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer," [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 September 1840

CORRESPONDENCE, To the Editor of the " Inquirer," MR. EDITOR — It has been objected to our colony that the immense grants of land to early settlers have injured, if not destroyed, the fund from which we should expect to import labour, inasmuch as land is to be purchased from individuals at a lower rate than the government price. This is a serious error in our colonial system, if there be not a vital and fundamental error in the whole Gibbon Wakefield invention of a land fund. Let us grapple with this question. You mentioned a recent instance of purchase of land at a higher price than has hitherto been usual, but much below the government minimum. Had the purchaser been un- able to get this land at the price he gave, would he have given 12s. an acre? unquestionably not; he would either have turned his views to another country or his exertions into another channel, he did however, obtain it ; and he therefore becomes a contributor to the resources, comforts, and revenue of the colony....
