WOOL AND OIL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 July 1841

WOOL AND OIL. The import of sperm oil ami head-matter during the year 1840 has been 5,788 tuns, against 5,572 tuns in 1839 ; of which the colonies contributed 1,322 tuns in 1839, and 1,604 tuns in 1840. The estimated stock now on hand is about 1,200 tuns, which, as we commenced the year with a clear market, would make the consumption oflast year 4588 tuns,-being less by about 2000 tuns than the average of the proceeding ten years, — a falling off which may be account ed for by the joint influence of high prieee, and the inter ference which the consumption of Sperm oil has met with from the extended introduction of the recently invented Solar Lamp, for burning Southern oil. — A new feature has also presented itself in the Sperm oil market during the past year, by the importation of no less than 1713 tuns from the United States, whilst from the same quarter we only re ceived 2,160 tuns from the year 1820 to the year 1839 in clusive. It is only however, when prices are exorbitantly lii...

LATEST NEWS FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 July 1841

LATEST NEWS FROM AMERICA. By the packet ship Patrick Henry, Captain Delano, we have received New York papers to the 8th instant, und Montreal to the 3d March inclusive. Tbis vessel having made the passage in fifteen days, from the United StaWs, ha6 anticipated in some degree w%rival of the President steam-ship, now fully due, if she left New York on the 10th instant, us was confidently stated would be the case. General Harrison, the new president, had delivered his in augural address at Washington on the 4th. The govern ment despatches had been received, and Mr. Fox, it would seem, was authorised to demand the immediate liberation of Mr. M'Leod, which if not complied with, wouid cause the withdrawal of our minister from the republic. The belligerent tone of parties in New York seemed in a great degree to have given way to a more pacific disposition, and the whole tenor of the President's address also may be declared conciliatory. A discussion of some importance had taken place be tw...

SPEECH FROM THE THRONE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 July 1841

gPEECH FROM THE THRONE. (* My Lord* and Gentlemen, I have the satisfaction to receive from Foreign Powers assurances of their friendly disposition, and of their earn est desire to maintain peace. The position of affairs in the Levant had long been a cause of uneasiness, and a source of danger to the general tranquillity. With ft view to avert the evils which a con tinuance of that etafe of things was calculated to occasion, I concluded with th§£mperor of Austria, the Kingof Prussia the Emperor of Russia, and the Sultan, a Convention in tended to effect a pacification of the Levant ; to maintain the integrity ao# independence of the Ottoman Empire; and thereby to TOord additional security to tbe peace of Europe. I have given directions tbat this Convention shall belaid before you. I rejoice to be able to inform you that the measures which have been adopted in execution of these engagements have been attended with signal success ; end I trust that the ob jects which the contracting pa...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 July 1841

Subscribers we respectfully informed that the first year's subscription to this journal ends with the present number. WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1841. By the James Matthews, we have English news to the end of March last. The London papers are filled with long discussions as to the probability or otherwise of a war with America, and while we are glad to see it confidently assert- ed that the misunderstanding will be cleared up, it seems beyond a doubt that the peace of the two countries is very seriously threatened, and that the Americans have it in their power to force England into a war, however great her disincli- nation may be. The breach has arisen principal- ly in consequence of the imprisonment by the Americans of a Mr. McLeod, a British subject, and Colonel of Militia in Lower Canada, whom they threaten to bring to trial for murder and piracy for having been concerned in the attack on the Caroline at the outbreak of the revolution in Canada in 1837, in which attack several American ...

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. ARRIVED. — On the 21st instant, the James Matthews, Roberts, master, from London, touching at the Cape of Good Hope. — Passen- gers, Messrs. Burgh, Mrs. Roberts, and Mr. F. Luth. We regret to say that the James Matthews was wrecked on the night of the 23d, after hav- ing come to anchor. The following are all the particulars we have been able to collect as to this unfortunate occurrence, and we should be glad to see some inquiry made into the circumstances : — On Wednesday the brig came to anchor in Owen's Anchorage in 5 fathoms water. On Thursday afternoon it came on to blow fresh, and about midnight blew a heavy gale of wind ; between the hours of 12 and 2 in the morning the cable parted, when the second anchor was let go, which brought her up for a short time; at last she drifted on Woodman's Reef, where she   soon filled with water. Between 7 and 8 in the morning the masts were cut away — the weather was so very thick that nothing could be seen...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. July 22, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 July 1841

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. July 22, 1841. Oil the opening of the business of the day, Mr. Leake presented a petition from Mr. James iStokes, stating that, in the year 1838, and subse quently, he had invested a considerable sum in the construction and fitting up a distillery, there being at that time ho enactment for the purpose cither of prohibiting or regulating that' business; that in the year 1839 he was encouraged to a further outlay of capital in consequence of the Colonial Legislature having passed an act for regulating and licensing distilleries; which act was in full operation until it was disallowed by the home government. He now prayed that the Legislative Council would lake the matter into consideration, and afford him such redress and compensation for the injury he had sustained as the case in justice required, and^es had been al lowed to persons similarly circumstanced in Van Diemen's Land and other colonies. The petition having been read, Mr. Leake moved that it should Tie o...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 August 1841

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4, 1841. The questions (hat have arisen in Council on the presentation of the Petitions of Mr. S. Moore, and Mr. J. Stokes, praying for compensation for loss sustained by the prohibition of distillation in this colon y, are of great importance, for if the view taken by the majority of the Council be the correct one, the powers of that body are so insig nificant as to be of little real use to the colony. We will not now stop to consider whether com pensation was due or not, but come at once to the refusal of the Council in the one case to enter tain the subject matter of the petition at all, and to the reasons assigned for negativing the reso lution moved by Mr Leake in the other. It will be seen from our report that in consequence of His Excellency withdrawing his claim to a double vote in the Council the petition of Mr Stokes was ordered to lie on the table, a necessary preliminary to having the merils of the case entertained, and the facts discussed ; these merit...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. July 29, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 August 1841

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Jvly 29, 1841. A petition was presented from Mr. S. Moore, praying that compensation should be allowed to him in consequence of the loss he had sustained by the passing of the act to prohibit distillation in the colony. His Excellency moved that the pe tition be read, and took occasion to remark, that with reference to a similar motion on which he had claimed the right of a double vote, as mem ber and as Chairman of that Council, he had since examined into the subject, and had found no sufficient authority to support his claim j he should therefore abandon the point, and with draw the vote given by him at the last meeting; Mr. Stokes* petition, therefore, must be taken as lying on the table. W. Tanner, Esq., moved that the petition of Mr. S. Moore, that had just been read, should lie on the table. G. Leake, Esq., seconded the motion. It was a principle in British law that compensation was due to an individual who had suffered any loss from the act of the legisla...

Fearful of again intruding upon the patience of our readers, yet anxious to urge the momentous ?question of Education upon the minds of all parents, we venture once more with diffidence to come forward and ask among the numerous readers of the Inquirer whether any have been found willing to move in the steps we proposed for establishing a school in this colony for the benefit of the colonists' children, aud those who from other shores may be disposed to avail them selves of the proffered advantages 1 Settlers and colonists, we appeal to you all in a cause which most vitally concerns you all. Are you willing to come forward and set on foot a project which shall amply repay you by its happy results in raising to a virtuous and useful life a race of our fellow-creatures who must otherwise gradually degenerate into ignorance and vice ? Will you contribute your mite, and are you willing to put your shoulder to the wheel and help its progress along the road b...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 August 1841

To tie Editor of the Inquirer. Dear Mb. Editor,— Your tried benevolence and compassion towards the half-educated and helpless portion of the would-be literary world, should induce you to assist your unlucky cou temporary the Gazette, instead of making sport of his blunders. It was easy to foresee that your castigation of his abortive attempt to excite i!i feeling between his brother colonists would not have the desired effect, and that, shutting his eyes to the mirror which you held before them, he would only elaborate move ludicrous antics than before. In the present case he' appears big with a real grievance ; but what it is, or who the author, he is not sufficient master of his native tongue to bo nt-!fi to explain. The only intelligi ble conclusion to he arrived at is, (hot you have made a fool of' him, p.nd that ho imagines that you are about to clothe yourself with legislative powers, and to pass all. act to indemnify yourself for so doing. The anxiety he exhibits that no dela...

TRIAL OF THE EARL OF CARDIGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 August 1841

TRIAL OF THE EARL OF CARDIGAN. On Tuesday, at half-past nine o'clock, the doors of the House of Lords were thrown open. Long before, however, the carriages of tlte nobility began to arrive. All the Judges were early in attendance, attired in their scarlet robes. (Their lordships were accouipanied by their clerks,( but the latter not being provided with tickets from the Lord Chamberlain's office, they were peremptorily refused admission, and consequently their lordships|to were obliged to carry their large bags into the house themselves.) — The Earl of Cardigan arrived at the house in a splendid carriage (the coachman and footmen in full state liveries) at half past ten o'clock. All the other carriages in a line were drawn on one side, and the noble earl drove at a rapid pace to the entrance of the House of Lords. There was not the least manifestation of public feeling. When the Court had opened, and the chamber was filled, the tout ensemble was magnificent. The steps of the throne w...

CHINA NEWS. (From the Launeeston Advertiser of Juue \Qtlu) By way of South Australia we have an addition to our China news to the 10th March. The fol lowing is a more detailed account of the capture of the Bogue Forts than any that has yet been published here. ' On arriving at the Bognp, hostilities wore almost im mediately commenced, and in a very short time these far famed forts were in possession of the British. Subjoined is an account of the Battle of the Bogue : — ' The ships being nil collected ut the Bocea Tigris, on the 25th February, it was determined to muke en attack on the Bogue forts the following day.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 August 1841

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1841. A report containing an account of the country traversed by Mr. Eyre in his journey from Fow ler's Bay to King George's Sound, has been published in the Government Gazette, and will be found in another part of our journal. It will be seen that the country passed over was of a most, unpromising nature, and the only discovery of the least importance is the somewhat unsatis factory one of the line of coast between the two points being an almost impracticable desert, pre- , senting an insurmountable barrier to anything like overland communication with the settlements in that direction. This however is not to be looked on as of unmixed evil ; it would certainly have been more pleasing in many respects had Mr Eyre been enabled to report the existence of a fine tract of country beyond the already exten sive limits in which it has been found in this ter ritory, but the real fact of the case is far from being altogether without its advantages. We are by.no means sa...
