LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 23,1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 October 1841

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. September 23. 1840. The bill to repeal certain acts relating to the management of roads, streets, &c., was read a third time, and passed. The bill to provide for the management and construction of roads was read a third time. On tho motion that this bill do nass, W. Tanner.. Esq., said that, conceiving the act gave power to the trustees which enabled them to render utterly valueless many grants, and which no doubt in. many cases would be exercised by running roads through lands, and taking the most valuable parts (u spring perhaps, without which, it was well known, the land was of no use,) ho should vote against tlxo passing of the act. The lion, member was unsupported, and the bill passed. Mr. Tan ner intimated his intention of entering on the journals his reasons for his vote, and the follow ing has accordingly been entered by him on the minutes : — 'Because I conceive that it is unconstitutional to take away the property of an individual with out maki...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 October 1841

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' I am sorry Mr. Editor that in your remarks on my letter of the 11th instant, you appear not fully to concur with me in thinking that unless by express reserve to the con trary the prize should be given to the best. I think I may fay it is usual to express such reservation in the notice if it be intended to be made. I call your attention to two cases in point; one of the York Agricultural Society in this country, which says in its advertisement that ' the follow ing prizes will be awarded if stock of sufficient merit be shown for them.' The other, no mean authority, a rule of the Englibh Agricultural Society on the subject of prizes for essays — 'That the Society is not bound to give. an award, unless they consider one of the essays worthy of a prize.4' I quite agree with those who think that the plough ing, unless well done, should not obtain a .prize, but I think that the Soeiety should have declared', la their ad vertisement that such was the rule....

VARIETIES. Burke. — Johnson's often recorded expressions, that ' no man of sense would meet Mr. Burke by accident under a gateway, to avoid a shower, without being convinced that he was the first man in England,' once found a diiect and amusing illustration in che testimony ot'uti utter stiuiiiior. — Burke, in passing through Liclifo'ld, had gor.e with u friend to look at the cathedral, while the horses were changing. One of the clergy seeing two neiitleim n some what at a loss in this noble building, politely volunteered as their cicerone. The conversation flowed, and he w«.s speedily struck with surprise ot the knowledge of oue (if the travellers.

We crossed it by a dead tree extending from bank to bank, and beginning to ascend the mountain, were employed for nearly two hours in reaching the summit, composedtthere of bare precipitous large masses   of granite, rearing themselves in solitary gran- deur from the immense trees growing at their bases. The splendid view from the top compen- sated us for all previous fatigue. The Tulbenup and Porrougerrup ranges of hills were distinctly seen. To the S.W. by W. Broke's Inlet was observed stretching far away al...

QUARTER SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 October 1841

QUARTER SESSIONS.   The usual quarter sessions of the peace was holden in Perth on Friday last, before W. H. Mackie, Esq., Chair- man, and a Bench of Magistrates.       The Chairman, in his charge to the grand jury, regretted that the calendar was unusually heavy, both as regarded the number of prisoners to be tried, and the nature of the offences with which they stood charged, but stated that it was some consolation to know that the increase was not caused by the acts of what might be called our own com- munity. There were in all nine prisoners to be tried; six out of these were aboriginal natives, and of the remaining three, one was a person in no way connected with the colony, another was a sailor on board the Napoleon, and the third was a man who had very recently arrived amongst us from Sydney. True bills having been found in each case, the petty jury was sworn. William Page, a servant in the employ of Mr. Harper, was put to t...

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1841. By the Mary and Jane we have London papers down to the 5th June last. The chief point of interest is the debate in the House of Commons on Sir R.
