CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 August 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor qfttte Inquirer. Sib, — The public have of late been very much amused by letters in the Perth papers relative to the advantages and disadvantages of the now numerous roads to the Murray, as a pail of the great road leading to the southern settlements, and, as very properly hinted by one of the corre spondents, it is obvious that a great waste of public money has actually taken place in attempt ing to accomplish this desirable object. ? I do not, Mr. Editor, wish to throw personal reflections on any one, but being one of those in dividuals who contribute their mite in the shape of taxes to the colonial chest, I feel, as an indivi dual, however humble, I have a right to complain in general with others when an improper expend iture of the public money is obstinately persisted in. It has very properly been remarked that the cost of this road to the public has already been enormous, considering toe small means the colo ny can at present afford, and the very ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 August 1841

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 1841. An important discussion is likely to arise in Council to-morrow, on the question of the right of members to introduce matters to the considera tion of the Chamber without notice, and generally on the privileges of the Council. It is very necessary that these privileges should at once be silaovhr unHorarnnrT. nnH tlmr. thfv arinuirf Kp -fo_ dared to be as extensive as a liberal construction of the royal instructions, and the practice of other colonies, will permit. It has latterly appeared to us that attempts have been made to restrict the powers of members in some impoitant particu ars, and that a very unnecessary regard has been had to the feelings and opinions of persons in au thority at home as to the proceedings of our Legislative Council ; there are, no doubt, certain points of direction that must be attended to, but in such a simple matter, for instance, as the pre sentation of a petition, and whether it may be allowed to lie on the table, we are sa...

JOURNAL OF AN EXPEDITION TO NORNALUP, OR THE DEEP RIVER OR THE SEALERS, IN THE MONTHS OF MARCH AND APRIL, 1841; BY WM. NAIRNE CLARK. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 August 1841

JOURNAL OF AN EXPEDITION TO NORNALUP, OR THE DEEP RIVER OF THE SEALERS, IN THE MONTHS OF MARCH AND APRIL, 1841 ; BY WM. NAIRNE CLARK. Havinghbeard from the sealers many reports respecting   a river to the westward of King George's Sound called by them tbe " Deep River," I had long felt an anxiety to visit the place by land or sea, in order to find out, for the benefit of the colony, whether the stories told respecting this dis- trict of country were true or not. On explaining my views to J. R. Phillips, Esq., tbe Government Resident at Al bany, I was promptly and kindly furnished with a fort- night's rations for three men, for the purpose of facilitating so far the contemplated object. I had then decided on reaching the Deep River by sea, and having procured Mr. Solomon Aspinall's whale-boat, manned by himself, as boat-steerer, and three men, I started from Princess Royal Harbour on the 15th of February last, about 5 o'clock A.M.,   but on getting out of th...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 September 1841

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st, 1841. We call the attentiou of our readers to our report of the proceedings of the Legislative Council on Thursday last. The adoption of the resolution respecting the privileges and usages of the Council is a very great point gained, as these important particulars are now placed on a much surer foundation than has been the case hitherto. The declaration made by hjs Excellency as to what he considered the extent of the powers en joyed by the chamber was highly satisfactory, and id perhaps the most truly liberal announce ment that his Excellency has yet made. We think it may fairly be inferred that no obstacle to free discussion will be put in the way by the Governor, but that he will, on the con trary, acting up to the principles advocated by him on Thursday last, give every encourage ment to the expression of public opinion by those who represent it in the Council, viz., the nonoffi cial members. The object that should be aimed at by all is to give the Coun...

March lST. — Pulled up the river as far as the boat could go, and where we formerly stopt. On this morning we Heard distinctly the bellowing of cattle, but could not obain a sight of them, although their traces were perceived. I here left the boat, accompanied by one of my men, and explored the country in a northerly di- rection. We climbed a high and very steep hill rising from the water's edge to the height of about 600 feet above the level of the sea. Descending the other side from the top, in a due north direction, found rich feed for cattle and horses — another hill in front of us ; soil red loam. At the bottom of the valley between the two hills a brook of pure fresh water about 2 yards wide bubbled along, running with a purling noise. For the next five miles we passed over a great deal of good land, rather thickly w...
