To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 July 1841

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — The Inquirer of March 17th contains a long let ter from Mr. W. N. Clark, which he call* some obxervations of hit owti, and, 1 may add, done in his own proper way, and with his usual candour, on a leport on the botanical, productions of the country between the York district and King George'* Sound which 1 had the honour to lay before his Excellency the Governor, and which was published in the Perth Gazette of the 3d December last, in which I claim for Mr. J. Harris and myself to be the first discover ers, by actual experiment, of one of the plants which have been so destructive to goats, shiep aud cattle in this colo ny ; to which letter I wish to reply by a few observations. He first comments on a slight error of the prets, which I observed at the time of publication, but I did not think it worth while to have it corrected, as it was easy to under- ' stand my meaning ; I wrote vegetable, not vegetativ* poison. He next comments on the great ho...

The notice thst has appeared hi the Govern ment Gazette ottering a reiiiission in the purchase of land to any person wiio shall constantly employ a native bo as to convert him into an efficient farm-servant, or wl«o sh:;il instruct him in a trade, furnishes additional proof of the anxiety of our local government to improve the social condition of the aborigine.? of Western Australia.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 July 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. To tlie Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — I have read in your paper a letter from Mr. Singleton on the subject of a bridge and road under his inspection, opening a line of road from the Dandalup to the Harvey River ; from a former undertaking by that gentleman in that branch I have no doubt of its being well executed. Remarks are made that the work ought have been done by contract, but 1 take leave to differ from this question, more particularly from the bridge being upon that gentleman's estate; besides, Mr. Singleton had the command of men with all other necessary requirements to perform the work, and what is rarely attended tobv gentlemen accept ing the office of overseer in the colony, he see* the work performed. Had this plan been acted up on when the line, or rather lines were marked from the Canning to Pinjarra, a cool hundred would have been saved to our then scanty funds. I have it from a gentleman of veracity who travelled the line alluded to, about six months...

QUARTER SESSIONS. Perth, July 1, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 July 1841

QUARTER SESSIONS. Perth, July 1, 1841. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., Chairman, and a Bench of Magistrates. The Chairman, in addressing the grand jury, congratulated them that so few cases had to be submitted to their notice, and that only one of the prisoners indicted formed a part of our own population. The only case of importance was that of the three natives, Bob, Juleba, and Pingerry, who were indicted, the first for cutting Mr. N. Shaw with an axe with intent to murder, and the two others with aiding and assisting therein. The particulars of the case are already fully known to the public, and the charge being proved on the evidence of Mr. Shaw, and of Mr. Armstrong, they were all three found guilty, and sentence of death was recorded against them. They will therefore be sent to Rottnest for the term of their natural lives. Mr. Shaw interceded for the na- tives, and recommended them to mercy, stating that although Bob had struck the blow, he con- sidered nevertheless he was indebte...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, JULY 14,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 July 1841

WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 1841. The letter on the subject of EdAcalion, signed Philouiathcs, contained in this day's journal, is the first of a series. that has been addressed to us by the writer, and which will be continued from time to time. The object of their insertion is to eudeavour to awaken the attention of the public to a sense of the condition in which the youth of Western Australia will be found at a future day, unless due regard is had to the subject of which they treat. Whether we admit with one set of philosophers that the Iniman mind is like a blank sheet of paper, on which any impression may be made ; or with another, that principles and ideas are innate ; in both cases the power and beneficial effects of education must be admitted ; as in the first tase education gives the ideas, and in the second it develops them. We have somewhere seen education defined as ihc 'art of giving value to man,' ami a most beautiful and correct definition it appears to us to' be ; without edu...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. July 15, 1841. W. H. Mackie, Esq., took the oaths and his seat, viceT. N. Yule, Esq. A Bill for the regulation of pilotage and ship ping in the harbours of Western Australia was read a first time ; also a Bill to impose a tax upon dogs. The Council then passed to the second reading of a Bill to impose a duty of £1 per cent, on the transfer of landed property. On the motion that the Council do resolve itself into a committee to consider the various clauses, W-JEanner, Esq., moved that the bill be read a second time thai day six months. He did so because it was not his intention to enter into the merits of the bill he should oppose any measure for taxing lands, until those the settlers already possessed were properly conveyed to them. It was unnecessary for him to say more, as he had on a previous oc casion fully made known his sentiments. G. Leake, Esq., stated shortly his reasons for not seconding Mr. Tanner's motion ; — the late modification of the land regulat...

ON EDUCATION. Ingenuas didieisse fideliter artes "Emollit mores, nee sinit esse feros." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 July 1841

ON EDUCATION. ' ? Ingenuas didicissc fideliter Brtes ' Eniollit mores, uec eiuit eese fcros.' Among the innumerable il 6 prevailing in this world of change and mortality, if we were to fix on one, the existence of which in its results has been more universally found to hjave a baneful in fluence over the moral discipline of society and mankind in general than any other, we should name the want of Education. For it is notorious that wherever education is neglected, man becomes cruel and unjust — implacable, unmerciful, with all the worst passions of his nature loose and un controlled. Were we called upon to prove our assertion, we need only direct attention to the many be nighted portions of the globe, and there in undy ing characters we may sec the deplorable effects of ignorance and superstition as evinced in their many acts of cruelly arid want of mercy tc their fellow-man. Whether we look to the North American Indian, the African, or the New Hol lander, all are alike — unmerciful...

RURAL ECONOMY. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Continued from No. 40.] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 July 1841

% RURAL ECONOMY. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Continued from No. 10.] Having thus gone through these papers, 1 cannot better conclude this part of the subject than by stating, that if in Britain,' a country which has taken the lead in agricultural im provement, and where societies and clubs have been doing so n-uch all over the country, there be even now a difference of fifty per cent, in the expense of one branch of farm economy, what a field must here be for the labours of Agricultural Societies. This difference we find thus recorded by the: Harleston Club :— ' Amongst a body of farmers, all residing within four or five miles of the place of meeting, all using a similar breed of cart-horses, and cultivating a similar description' of land, such an astonishing difference in the ex pense of maintaining their cart-horses should exist, amounting, in authenticated statements, to upwards of 50 per cent, whether estimated at per hciul for each horse, or per acre for the arable land.
