WE extract the following from a report of the tenth meeting of the British Association:— [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 July 1841

We extr -ct the following from a report of the tenth meeting of the British Association : — 'New Method of Photogenic Duawing. — After some observations on the comparatively low valux of all drawings taken by meaus of the ^amera-obscura, in au artistical point of view, and on the principal points on which Mr. Talbot's and M. Daguerre's methods of fixing the drawings of the camera-obscura were fortnded, the author, Dr. Sdiafliatuilt, proceeded to describe his peculiar method of producing photogenic drawings in Mr. Tulbot'e, that is, in a negative way ; then, secondly, he described two new methods of obtaining photographs f n a positive way. His first method tended to obtain a paper of very great sensibility by a comparatively short process. He recom mended Peunj's improved patent metallic paper, and spreading a concentrated solution of the nitrate of silver (140 grains, to 2£ drachms of fused nitrate toG fluid drachms of distilled water), by merely drawing the paper over the surface ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 July 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. The following plan for the destruction of weevils is given in the Farmer's Magazine for September, 1839; the mode, as the Yankee journals would say, is curious, if true : — ' Accident has discovered to a French farmer a very simple mode of destroying weevils in corn warehouses. Happening to lay in the corner of a granary in which there was a quantity of corn some sheep-skins with the fleece on, he wa6 not a little surprised to find them a few days after covered with dead weevils. He repeated the experiment several times, and always with the same success. At lust he ordered his corn to be stirred up, and not a single weevil remained in it.' We extract the following from a Port Phillip paper : — ' The investigations instituted regarding the wreck of the Clonmel had been the means of making a very im portant discovery. Captain Lewis, the Harbour Master of Port Phillip, who went down to the wreck in the cutter Listen, ' discovered a noble inland lake, capacious enough to ...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 July 1841

To the Editor of tlie ' Inquirer.' Mr Editor, — I was very pleased to see in the ' Perth Gazette,' that confession and display of Mr Lionel Samsou's ignorance : — pleased because it appears that the only vulner able point of our little bunk is the wording of its notes. Does not Mr Samson know, if not I can tell him, that the great Rothschild was in the habit of taking notes which did not state on the face of them whether payment for them was to be made in soap, in candles, or other hucksteries ? The notes of the Bank of England do not bear on their front the information as to what kind of pounds they are to be exchanged for. Be it known to Mr Samson, that the Western Australian Bank does not deal in soft-eoap, nor in wormwood,— though we may give him & little mustard if we think he deserves it, — but in cash that ' uuxious de sire of his speculations,' and that, the said ' valuable ex change' will not be given eith«r by avoirdupolse nor any other outlandish weight, but by ta...

ON EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 July 1841

ON EDUCATION. Having once made a feeble effort to call the attention of our friends and the public generally to the crying evil of the want of education, and endeavoured to picture to our readers the lament able consequences likely, aye, sure to result from aueh a want, we 'will now endeavour to point out the f'untidote,' by suggesting what appears to us to be a feasible mode of supplying it ; premising that we do not int :nd to be carried away by dif ficult and impracticable theories, but to lay be fore the public the readiest, safest, and easiest method, with the means at our disposal at tills ? present 'moment in the colony. T|je tools are on the ground, fit for service, and require only to be handled by sensible men to fashion out in embryo a well-educated, moral, and religious community, when the youth of the present day shall attain to manhood, and shall become, through our united exertions, acceptable to God, and profitable to their fellow-men. But, again, we feel ourselves c...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 July 1841

CORRESPODENCE. To the Editor of the Inauirer. Slit, — 1 look upon you as the last man in our little com munity who would either wittingly or willingly Eeek to ?mislead the public mind upon the encouragement of fur ther emigration to this settlement ; but bs your remarks upon the subject of Uip government regulations lately pub lished oil the sale of crown lands would tend much to this effect, may I ask for what period this bait of ten miles of commonage to a purchaser of one hundred and sixty acres is likely to be enjoyed ? for unless something more specific upon this point be well and clearly understood than those setfortk, I must say there are few of us likely to recom mend our friends to bend their course this way, who are still labouring under the treatment received at the hands of the home government, and of which your spirited journal has laboured to expose ; therefore,let us not be cajoled out of £160, with other pickings, leaving it at the mercy of any government, or governo...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 21,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 July 1841

WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1841. In the present dearth of anything like news, foreign or domestic, we purpose making a few remarks on the subject of the bill to impose a tax upon dogs, which will be read a second time to morrow. The principle of the bill, which is to abate the annoyance occasioned by the number of dogs infesting the streets and highways in the colony, we entirely approve of ; it is high time that a check should be put to the nightly tl ulu lations' (as a certain^ learned acquaintance of ours would say) that disturb the sleep of our sober citizens, and to the increase of a parcel of worthless curs, which would in time become the scourge and terror of our sheep-folds. There is a point, however, which we should gladly see amended in committee, and to which we shall shortly advert. The only exemption made by ^the bill, is in the case of dogs under three months old, and dogs actually employed in the herding of sheep and cattle. We are of opinion that the exemption should extend...

REMINISCENCES OP THE PRENCH BAR.— SOUVENIRS DE M. BERRY ER, DOYEN DE8 AVOCATS DE 1774 A 1838. — Paris 1839. (From' the Times.) A notice of this interesting work has already been quoted iu Tfce Times from the Lam Maga zine. Having, however, devoted to the book, of M. Berryer a more extensive investigation, we have discovered in it several interesting features which have not been noticed, but which may now, we think, be advantageously brought before our readers. We have endeavoured, in this second review of AT. Berryer's work, to select such extracts as appear to possess the greatest d&gree of interest ur importance, but wre -ore nevertheless compelled, from our limited space, / to omit many passages worth-, of attention. For such we nnist refer the re.-.dt-rto the work itself. We proceed, without further preface, to make our extracts. M. Berryer relates the following anecdote of the delicate gratitude of a fciu-ile client of M. Boudot : — ' In the course of the affair in disp...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 July 1841

CORRESPON DENCK. To tl e Editor of tlie Inquirer. Sir, — It is now very common to hear of the farmers keeping up the price of meat unreason ably high, as thonqh they had any power either to raise or lower the price. The trade is free — there is no sort of monopoly or combination ; almost every tradesman in Perth has had a turn at the butchering business, and if it were so pro fitable, it is most likely they would have continued at it. Almost every gentleman, from the Go vernor downwards, is a sheep-holder ; how do they sell their wethers ? I will answer for them. For as much as they can get. The farmer does no more. The imports into this colony within the last few years have greatly increased ; the price of stores generally is rather higher than it was five years since, and as long as the farmer pay* £70 a-year for a shepherd, a shilling a pound for salt meat (the York price), and about a bundled and fifty per cent, upon the prime cost of everything he buys at Perth, it is impossibl...
