CASE OF MR. M'LEOD. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 September 1841

CASE OF MR. M'LEOI). The Morning Chronicle has the following re marlts on this case from a correspondent at Philadelphia : — ' PHILADELPHIA, March 19. 'It affords me sincere pleasure to state that public feeling in relation to M'Leod, and the difficulties with Great Britain, continue to becalm, dispassionate, and apparently pacific. Mr. Crit tenden, Attorney-General of the United States, has gone north for the purpose of being present at the trial of M'Leod, which is expected to be called on in a few days. General Scott has also pro ceeded in the same direction, to prevent, as it is said, any interference with the due execution of the laws by popular disturbance or turn ult. 1 1 is thought by some that Mr. Crittenden will con tend that the case is a proper one for the consi deration of the executive of the United States, as hetween the two nations. Chief Justice Nelson, of New York, will preside at the trial. If it be determined, on argument, that the trial shall pro ceed, and that ...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 September 1841

VARIETIES. In a review of a German Work by Varnhagen Von Ense, in the Foreign Quarterly Review, we find the following cu rious anecdotes : ' One morning the death cart came for its usual number of daily victims ; and Schlabendorf s name was called out He immediately with tbe greatest coolness and good humour prepared for departure ; presence of mind in some shape, a grand stoicism of mere indifference, were common in those terrible times. — And Schlaberndorf was not the man to make an ungraceful departure, when the unavoid able mutt of fate stood sternly before him. He was soon dressed, only his boots were missing; he sought, and sought, and 6Ought, and the gaoler sought with him in this corner and in that ; but they were not to be found. ' Well/ said Schlaberndorf sharply, - this is too bad: to be guillotined without any boots will never do. Hark ye, my good friend/ continued he with simple good humour to the gaoler, ' take me to morrow ; one day makes no difference ; it is the man...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 September 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. * 7o the Editor of the 'Inquirer.1' Sir, — I have this day, for the first time, read an article in your paper relative to Southern roads and certain bridges ; and as the post i? waiting, you will perhaps excuse the haste of my reply. I cannot but feel for any person, calling himself a correspondent to a paper, who should have so small a regard, to both truth and argument as is evinced by (he writer of the article in question. Your correspondent's remarks are as wanting in sense, as his particulars are in truth ; and first let me inform you and your readers that the partner ship of Messrs. Jones nnd Singleton has to my knowledge never existed. Mr. Jones' portion of the line mentioned (from the Canning to the Dandalup ford) stopped at the Serpentine River, and I flatter myself that the road is only notorious {js far as the head of the alleged firm carried it; and although your correspondent states that he does ' not wish to throw personal reflections on any person,' th...

ANECDOTES FROM THE FRENCH STAGE, & THE FRENCH PEOPLE; edited by Theodore Hook from the Memoirs of M. de Fleury. VOLTAIRE AT REHEARSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 September 1841

ANECDOTES FKOM THE FBliNCH STAGE, fc THE FRENCH PEOPLE; edited by Theodore Huohj from the Memoirs ojM.de Fleury. VOLTAIRE AT REHEARSAL. Voltaire attended our rehearsals as Weil as onr perform ances at Feruey. I can fancy I see him now, in his every day dress, consisting of grey stockings and grey shoes, a large waistcoat of bazin descending nearly to his knees, a large wig squeezed into a little black velvet cap, turned up in front ; the whole completed by a robt-de-cliambre, like wise of bazin, the corners of which he would sometimes tuck into the waistband of his small-clothes. Arrayed in this costume, any other person would have looked like a cari cature ; but the appearance of Voltaire, to fur from sug gesting any idea of the ridiculous, was calculated to com mand respect and interest. On ordinary occasions, wheu he happened to enter into conversation with any of the members of our theatrical troop, his manner was marked by good-humoured familiarity. But when he superintended ou...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 September 1841

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1841- We observe by the Times of April 7th, that a very large meeting of persons interested in the colony of New South Wales was held at the George and Vulture, on the subject of Australian Emigration. It appears that the meeting had been convened for the purpose of considering certain 'conditions' then recently promulgated by the Colonial Land and Emigration Commis sioners, touching the future conduct of bounty emigration, and a number of resolutions, all strongly condemnatory of the conditions proposed, were passed on the occasion. The conditions complained of are stated to bear date 25th March last, and arc, so far as we can learn, altogether unknown in this colony, which will no doubt be affected by them in common with the other Australian colonies. From the notice in the Times we arc unable to guess at the nature of the alterations made by these new conditions, but it is to be inferred that the change from the old system is important, as upwards of twent...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. 9th September, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 September 1841

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. 9th September, 1841. The Bill to repeal certain acts relating to the management of roads, &c, and enabling the in habitants of townships to assess themselves for the improvement of the town, was' read a second time and will be read a third time on the 23rd instant. The bill to provide for the construction and management of roads, and other internal com munications was read a second time, and the Council went into committee on the various claus es. The amendments were numerous, the effect of which would be incomprehensible to the pub lic, without laying a copy of the bill before them, and comparing it with the old act; we note shortly some of the principal differences. The number of acres in fee-simple necessary to qualify for a trustee was the first point of discus sion ; G. Leake, Esq., arguing that from the in creased price of land, and other circumstances, the qualification should be reduced to 500 acres, instead of 1000 as in the old act. The honoura...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 September 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. r Trial of Mister.— Josiah Mister was indicted for cutting and wounding William Miller Mackreth, at Lud low, on the 20th day of August last. Mr. Sergeant Lud low, Mr Godson, and Mr Neale, conducted the case for the prosecution ; and the prisoner was defended by Mr F. V. Lee. The statement of the case to the jury was after wards borne jout by numerous witnesses, who were exam ined at great length. It appeared that the prisoner was at Shrewsbury on the 12th of August, having ascertained that a person of the name of Ludlow, who was a cattle dealer at Birmingham, would be at Shrewsbury fair. Heals* found out that Mr Ludlow put' up at an inn called the Unicorn, in that town. He further ascertained the bed-room in wh\ch Mr Ludlow usually slept, but it happened by an ac cidental circumstance, that the inn being full at the time, Mr Ludlow slept in a double-bededroom. A person of the name of Jobson was also at Shrewsbury hi the company of Mr Ludlow, and the prisoner having qu...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 September 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sin, — In a letter which I have received from a correspondent at Perth, the following paragraph occurs : — ' I am informed at the Survey Office that both Nornalup and the Deep River are well known, and appear on the published charts.' I hope it will not be deemed presumptuous in me to state the sources from which such an intimate knowledge of these places lias been derived. In the year 1829, Dr. Wilson, of the Royal Navy, saw at a great distance a very high double-peaked mountain, to which he thought fit to give a name — 'Mount Franklin,' or 'Frankland, — and this was put down on the charts afterwards published In the year 1831, Captain Bannister and Mr. Smythe, rtten of the Survey office, ac- companied by servants and horses, undertook a journey from Perth to King George's Sound, but owing to some mistakes, instead of reaching Albany, they made the sea-coast a few miles west of Nornalup, 100 miles from their destination, and were obl...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 September 1841

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1841. The new bills relating to the management and construction of roads in the colony, present some new features, and are altogether of great impor tance. That for the direction of the general road trust, appears to us to be a very admirable bill, and with the single exception of the reduction in the qualification, was much improved in com mittee. The principle of the bill is to throw the entire management of the roads into the hands of the trust, free from any control of the govern ment whatever, a point which was by no means clear under the old act; roads may now be marl ed out and entered upon without any approval other than that of the trustees, the government not being able to interfere in their direction so long as the expense is bome out of the funds of the trust. The new bills differ from the acts at present in force in some important particulars which we will endeavour to point out. Confu* sion arose from the fact that the act 1 Victoria No % appli...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Perth, Sept. 16. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 September 1841

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Perth, Sept. 16. * His Excellency laid on the table a bill to pro vide for the more effectual and accurate establish ment of the boundaries of lands within the colony of Western Australia. The introduction of labour bill was read a second time, and went through committee ; to be read a third time on Thursday, the 30th instant. His Excellency, in moving the first reading of the boundary bill, remarked that the necessity for it had been fb. ced upon the local government from the circumstance of the boundaries to the various grants not having been absolutely laid down ; as in York, for instance, where they were determined by measurement from a particular spot. The question had come before the notice of the go vernment by means of a memorial, signed by most of the settlers on the Avon, and the present bill was introduced in order that the Surveyor General might place landmarks at the proper boundaries of every grant ; such landmarks to be the final boundaries.
