THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY .SEPTEMBER 22,1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 September 1841

WHDXESDAV, .SEPTEMBER 22,1841. The very prosperous way in which (he affairs I of the old Bank of Western Australia are being wound uj- forms good matter for remark. A third payment on account of the division of the company's stock is announced, and the sum-total to be received by the shareholders will amount to about £6 per share, on a paid-up capital of £3 15*r. [When it is remembered that this little bank during its establishment was paying 25, 30, and I even 40 per cent, to the shareholders, and on its dissolution is winding up its affairs without, as we are informed on excellent authority, the loss of a single shilling, its career really 'becomes notable ! in the annals of joint-stock banking, and affords €rr\r\r\ AnnAimoiVAiYinnf 4-sx flinn/i ttfl.A K a «. — ? 1 _ I I td capital in a similar concern. This prosperous result, however, is to be atfri- 1 buted in no mean degree to the establishment of the new Western Australian Bank, which has much facilitated the winding up of the...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inauirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 September 1841

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer,' Mr. Editor,— In the Inquirer of June 23rd you express your satisfaction at the conditions at tached to the new regulations in regard to the sale of crown lands in this colony — viz., that the pur chaser of a quantity not less than 160 acres, at £1 per acre, shall be entitled to the right of com monage over the whole of the unoccupied Crown lands to the extent of ten miles around him ; and that, in consequence, you can -conscientiously re* commend parties about to emigrate to turn their attention to Western Austnlia. The inducement here held out tor a purchaser of 160 acre sections appears to be very attractive at a first view, but a little consideration will, satisfy him that it is in the power of any moneyed individual to render his neighbour's. 160 acre section almost valueless j for instance, should a purchaser locate himself on one of these sections, we will suppose' on the bank of a river, with a fertile country around him, and ...

To the Editor of the' Inquirer:' Mr. Editor, — May I requesMhe favour of a corner in your valuable journal for the enclosed letter. May I request a further favour, that as a spirited public journalist you will protect the weak against the strong. I being considered as something of a scholar amongst my fellows, am put forward by them on this occasion, and though we have justice on our side, I cannot but feel the inequality of the contest on which I have enter ed, having arrayed against me such a phalanx of rank and talent ; unless I can enlist ;rou on my side, — of which indeed I do not doubt, for I fancy yonr organ of justice must have suffered consi derably during the decision at which I am told y«u were present. — Yours,&c, A Labourer.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 September 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. In Rolls Court, on Monday, the case of the King of Hanover verms Sir H. Wlioatley came on for hearing. The bill with which the case originated was filed by the King of Hanover against Sir -H. Wheatley and T. * Wood, the ex ecutors of King William the Fourth, the Attor ney-General as representing the interests of the British Crown and Prince George of Cambridge. A motion was made on behalf of the defendants for a commission to Hanover, to crossexamine Mrs. Charlotte Beckendorff, aged 80, and Miss Sophia Beckendorff, for some time Maids of Honour to Queen Charlotte. They have already been examined on the part of the King of Hano ver.

FAILURES OF GIFTED PERSONS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 September 1841

FAILURES OF GIFTED PERSONS. (From, tlie English' Journal. J We jrent the other evening to hear ' The Messiah' of Handel performed at the Sacred Harmonic Society. It was magnificently got up, there being no Iess-thau five hundred vocal and instrumental performers ; we counted ninety female choristers. Very rarely is 6uch a treat offer ed even to the London public on the like reasonable terms wit h that with which the society presents. The first hoar during the performance of that sublime composition is to us almost too exciting; we find a difficulty in suppressing our emotion. These effects diminish afterwards until we get ttbserbed in the seraphic ' Alleluia,' and seem to feel the very atmosphere of heaven diffusing itself around us. Returning home, we thought of the author of ' The Messiah,' a natural recurrence after such a gratification. Ha.idel was a gross man, whose love of eating was anything but in accordeuce with the sublimity of bis compositions. Can it be possible that tli...

A SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 September 1841

A SUBJECT. It may appear to the readers of public journals that there is nothing so easy as to find matter to write about day after day, and week after week. We wish all liberal and inge nious people who entertain such a notion were required merely to supply suggestions for subjects — not to say one word about ideas or treatment. If they would not abandon their vocation before the expiration of a month, let our ex perience of the business go for nothing. "Why," exclaims some theoretical country gentleman over his toast of a morning, with a double Times spread out before him, "the newspapers teem with subjects. Only   think of the railway accidents, the bank forgeries, the mad countess, the pantomimes, Christmas week, New Year's day, workhouse festivities, stocks, plum-pudding, holly and ivy, Ametican loans, election jobbing — " Stop, stop,   worthy old man.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1841. We have now before us the whole of the cor respondence, in the Colonial department, relative to South Australia, lately printed by order of the House of Commons, to serve, we suppose, as a guide to the members in the inquiry that has no ttaubt by this time taken place into the prospects and condition of that province, and a most curious and remarkable correspondence it is : with some portions of it purpose making our readers ac quainted. It has been said that we in this colony have nothing to do with South Australian affairs, but putting out of view the fact that the present position of that colony is one for the whole world to consider and profit by, it is most especially in teresting and instructive to our colonists at Swan Biver, whose progress has for years been checked by the encouragement that has been shown to the system of colonization pursued in South Austra lia, and which, being diametrically opposed to our own, now threatens to involve its f...

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 29 September 1841

REVIEW. Night and Morning. By the author of Rienzi, Eugene Aram, &c, &c. 3 vols. Saunders ami Otley. [Prom the 'Examiner.] The life of every man, great or humble, happy or miserable, has its Night and its Morning. The meanest creature that crawls the earth, provided the soul of a man is not altogether extinguished in him, is still seen groping towards some light out of whatever darkness may surround him. The external and the internal play their parts with him as with grander people ; he has his five-act tragedy to work out as much as the prince and potentate theirs ; the main difference being, that whereas their last catastrophe is too often Night, his has a better chance of being Morning. What ever is most significant, indeed, in all the various phases of life, is set before the imagination in these two words — the strength which may be educed from suffering, the wisdom which can flow from error, the good which even evil tends to. It follows, that to discriminate ri...

JOURNAL OF A SECOND EXPEDITION TO THE WESTWARD OF KING GEORGE'S SOUND AS FAR AS POINT ENTRECASTEAUX, IN THE MONTHS OF APRIL, MAY, AND JUNE, 1841 ; BY WILLIAM NAIRNE CLARK. The first expedition to Nornalup, or the Deep River, having only excited further curiosity, I determined on undertaking another on a much larger scale, and applied again to the Government Resident for assistance, but Mr. Phillips ex- pressed his regret that he could not comply with my request. (The former supply of provisions, consisting of 95lbs. of flour, 12lbs. of salt pork, 12lbs. of sugar, and 6lbs. of tea, has been repaid to him by the local government.) I had made arrangements with the owner of a large five-ton boat and dingy, whereby the use of them was secured for the trip, but in obtaining an outfit I experienced some petty opposition from parties that I little expected would have attempted to throw difficulties in the way of such a desirable object, and the intended expedition was very nearly swamped ; ...

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1841. Our attention has been drawn to an article in a late number of the London Spectator, in which the execution of the two natives hanged at York for the murder of Mrs. Cook, is commented on in a strange way. The article is headed with the ominous word ' murder,' and the object of the writer liae been to show that the two natives were unjustly and illegally put to death. In tfiifr at tempt, he of course deals largely in thopfc word* and phrases which form the staple of ftoi-disaM philanthropical argument, end which ^ as sick ening to the real lover of the human rlfe&GtB,tht-y are wanting in truth and right reason. w&JJi^vtt the usual proportion of such exproNfm/.'w these '.—'vindictive feeling of the ee^e^*'* ' cold-blooded murder,' — 'savage spjrtt w ie venge,' &c, &c, together with a long tirade on. - what is justice, and what is not — a distinction^?^ the way, of which the writer in the 3pec$utlM' seems to be the only person...
