THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 June 1841

WEDNESDAY, JUXE 10, 1841. A despatch has lately been received by our local government from Lord John Russell con veying information of a project for establishing communication by steam-boats round the coasts of Australia. The scheme has been set on foot by a Mr. Boyd, a gentleman of immense wealth, residing in London, who in the month of October last wrote to Lord John Russell, acquainting him that his attention had been for some time de voted towards the means of further developing the resources of Australia, and soliciting assist ance of the Secretary of State to carry out the inportant useful objects he had in view.   Mr. Boyd states in his letter to the Secretary of State, that he had just before despatched a large steamer of nearly 600 tons burthen, and of 250 horse power, fitted out at his expense, at the cost in £30,000 for the purpose ot trading round the wants of Australia, and to the adjacent islands, and that he purposed shortly to despatch a second to the sa...

THIRD SERIES OF THE CLOCK MAKER, BY SAM SLICK. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 June 1841

THIRD SERIES OF THE CLOCKMAKEIt, BY SAM SLICK. A Third series of the sayings and doings of this quaint moralist has made its appearance, and we see that another volume is already promised ; in this the Cloekmaker threatens to leave his old subject of Yankees and Blue-noses, and begin laughing at somebody else — in fact, to ' to take a rise out of the Britishers.' It appears that he has qualified himself for the task during his residence in London, as attache to the American legation at ' the Court of St. James', Buckirf - ham,' to which office he was appointed by Martin Van Buren, on condition, no doubt, that he should change his style, and as he has hither to done little else than cause the Britishers to laugh at the Yankees, that he should now take turn about and give cause to the Yankees to laugh at the Britishers. It must be owned that places have been bestowed for reasons much less laudable and patriotic. A friend in America suggests the way in which he is to behave himself in ...

A TRIP TO GIBRALTAR. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 June 1841

A TRIP TO GIBRALTAR. ' The formidable bay of Biscay being sur mounted, we enter the most romantic and beauti ful bay of Vigo, now remarkable in history for having harboured the British fleet during the Peniiibular war. It is girt by picturesque lnoun* tains and locked from the sea by island rocks with screaming sea fowl for theironly inhabitants ; the town or village is too inconsiderable to repay the trouble of landing. The remainder of the voyage left little to describe ; the steamer touches at Cadiz, which is clean and pretty, but too well known by Lord Byron's description to admit of one by an inferior hand. It was late in the even ing, that the long Alpine line of the African coast, and the conical promontory of Gibraltar were coming out like shadows on the horison, and the next morning our eyes unclosed on the pillars of Hercules, the rocky Calpe, at whose feet we were anchored, and the romantic Abyla in Barbary. — The first impression made upon a stranger by the rock oi Gibra...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 June 1841

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1841. We call the attention of our readers to the regulations, published in another part of our journal, regarding the disposal of Crown lands in this colony. The document is, in our opinion, very satisfactory, and one for which we were little prepared : we have ever been opposed to the plan of raising the price of land so high, butif it was to be adopted, a more wholesome provision could not well have been added than this promised right to the purchnper of 1C0 acres of undisputed commonage over the unappropriated crown lands adjoining. We believe that we are altogether indebted for this to our local government, who have therein taken a course by which most of ihe evils that have been deemed consequent on the increased price have been avoided, and which proves satisfactorily enough that our more. im- mediate rulers are not in favour of centralization, for the promise of a right of commonage is in fact offering a premium for dispersion. We congra tulate the public...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 June 1841

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 1841. As the quarterly meeting of the Agricultural Society is near at hand, we purpose making a few remarks with a view to draw the attention of the members to a re-consideration of the experiments relative to the poisonous plant. The reports that have already gone abroad have been injurious to the colony, inasmuch as they are in some sense vague and unsatisfactory; it is therefore advisable to make the best of a bad business, and at least to obtain, by careful and diligent inquiry, every information that can be procured respecting the nature and ^fleets of this plant. Probably nothing would tend mor/lo re move the unfavourab'e impression the knowledge of its existence has created, than making known the results of a series of experiments conducted on scientific principles — such experiments are, in our opinion, yet to be made, and it is good that they should be commenced immediately, were it only tor our reputation's sake. The fact of the poison having been ascer...

MEETING OF THE PROPRIETORS OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOINT STOCK BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 June 1841

MEETING OF THE PROPRIETORS OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOINT-STOCK BANK. A meeting of the subscribers of the Western Australian Bank was held on Wednesday last at Williams' hotel. Mr. Tanner, having been called to the chair, addressed the meeting as follows : — We have met, gentlemen, for the purpose of forming a joint-stock bank with a resident pro prietary ; as chairman, it is my duty to say a few words on the causes which have led to its forma tion. Four or five years ago the colonists succeeded, in spite of several obstacles which then existed, in forming the Bank of Western Australia; which bank answered, I believe, the expectations of its founders, both as to its profits to the pro prietors, and its usefulness to the public. The Bank of Australasia recently made overtures to that bank, which, with certain modifications, were accepted, — accepted by a majority of the proprietors — by how small a majority some of you, gentlemen, will remember ; by the decision of that meeting the ...

A JOURNEY FROM BOMBAY TO THE NEILGERIS, BY A NATIVE OF AFGHANISTAN. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 June 1841

A JOURNEY FROM BOMBAY TO THE NEILGERIS BY A NATIVE OF AFFG1IAN1STAN. ' The following is a brief account of Munsbi Abdul Rnlia nrnu Khan's travels with Captain Eastwick, political agent at Sliikarpoor, from Bombay to the Neilgeri Hills : — ' On the 23d of February, 1840. I embarked with my baggage and servants. On the 22d of February and the next day Captain Eastwick came on board of the ship Mah mudi, and ordered the N&khuda Bapu to raise the anchor and set sail front Bombay for the Calicut port. It was im mediately done. On account of the favourable wind which we got on the first day of our embarcation, in the course of one day and night our ship sailed about 200 miles. The next day we reached very near Goa, which is a very ancient town of tlie Portngueso, but unfortunately the wind on that day was quite against us. As we passed the whole of that day about two miles' distance from Goa, it was a pity that we were so near the town and could not visit it. Had I been there, I w...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 June 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. Docility of the Camel. — ' Strings of camels are continually passing, each comprising about forty-five, and headed by a man upou an assy who leads the first, the others being mostly con nected by slight cords. It is a beautiful sight to see the perfect training and docility of these an imals. The caravans, as the weather is becom ing warmer, are beginning to travel by night, generally halting at about 10 or eleven o'clock in the morning. The care of the camels seem to be very much left to the children. I have just watched a string of them stopping on an open plain ; a child twitched the cord suspended from the head of the first ; a loud gurgling growl in dicated the pleasure of the camel as it awkwardly knelt down, and the child, who could just reach its back, uuiuiked the hooks which suspended fi-om either side the bales of cotton ; another child came with a bowl of water and a sponge, and was welcomed with a louder roar of pleasure as it washed the mouth and nostril...

MAGISLRATES' COURT. JUNE 26,1841. Before W. H, Mackie, and 6. Leake, Esqr. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 July 1841

MAGISLRATES' COURT. JUNE 20,1841. Before W. Ht Mackie, and G. Leake, Esqr . Robert Collins, of Perth, boatman, was charged by Richard Cullyer, his apprentice from the Children's Friend Society, with assault and battery and frequent ill treatment. The case was brought forward at the instigation of the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom, who is the Superintending Guardian of the children sent out to this colony by that society. Richard Cullyer, being sworn, said — I am nearly 18 years of age, and am apprenticed to Robert Collins. Yesterday morning he told me to bottle off some gin, and not to let Mrs. Collins see it. I could not help letting her see it : upon which he struck me a violent blow on the left cheek w ith bib fist, the mark of which may be now seen.
