THE INQUIRES WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 23rd. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 September 1840

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 23rd. 1840. The news brought by the Champion is of a na ture such as to excite considerable apprehensions in the minds of those who look upon peace as a blessing, and who consider that a proper under standing between nations is essential to human happiness. It has been long our boast that we live in times of protound peace, and statesmen, so called, have even within these few months not hesitated to de clare that there was no probability of that peace being disturbed — yet how stands the fact ! let any man open the map of Asia, and he will find there is scarcely a place in that wide continent, which is not already the scene of active warfare, or threatened shortly to be made so. As regards Europe, a war of extermination has been raging for years in Spain, Great Britain is at this mo ment at war with Naples; France has been pour ing out her blood, and her treasures in the hope of subjugating the miserable Arabs of the African Deserts ; Russia amid other schemes of...

THE WOURALI POISON. HYDROPHOBIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 September 1840

THE WOURALI POISON. Hydrophobia.. In a late number of the Southern Australian, a paperpub lishod at Adelaide, and obligingly lent to us by a friend, we observe a very interesting article on the nature and effects of this truly fatal poison. The article itself is far too long for our columns, but we will endeavour to condense the subject matter for the in struction of our readers. The existence of this poison h;ts long been known to Europeans through the fabulous ac count given of it by a few individuals trading with the Red Indians of Guiana, and Mr. Waterton the celebrated natur alist, whoEC amusing ' wanderings' must be known to imwy of our readers, determined to explore the interior of Gui ana, and to investigate the nature and quality of this dead ly composition. In the solitudes of Guiana and at a distance of 800 miles from Demarara Mr Waterton collected great quantities of this poison, which in composed of the following ingredients — ' A vine grows in these wilds (Guiana) wlii...

WESLEYAN CHAPEL FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 September 1840

WESLEYAN CHAPEL FREMANTLE. The first stone of the Wesleyan Chapel at Fre niantle was laid on Wednesday last, with the usual formalities, by His Excellency the Govern or, and it must be a matter of great congratulation among the followers of John Wesley, that they will have been the first to have erected a place of worship in that town. The ceremony was truly imposing, and we were glad to observe, that the greatest decorum prevailed amongst the multitude throughout the proceedings, every one present seemed conscious that he was there in the cause of religion, and even the natives, who were as-   sembled in great numbers, were apparently im pressed with the knowledge that the occasion was held sacred by their white brethren. Tiie gentle men forming the Committee, and other persons interested in the work formed themselves into a procession at the Court Hill, and at 12 o'clock, being joined by the Governor, R. Brown Esq and the Rev. J. Smithies Wesleyan Missionary, the whol...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 September 1840

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' SIR, — I know not how it is, but in a christian land, and among a christian community there are frequently more acts of barbarism committed than among heathens, and idolaters. When the natives who were implicated in the melan- choly murder of Mrs Cook and child were executed, the object aimed at by the government, was both wise and be- nevolent, and it is to be hoped that the example may be beneficial in deterring these benighted New Hollanders from a repetition of such an offence. But sir, one part of their object has lamentably failed, and instead of producing the good effect desired by the government, has led to the com- mission of acts by the white people disgusting to the eye, revolting to the ear, and outrageous to the cause of hu- manity. One would naturally suppose that a place which had wit- nessed such a series of tragic scenes — the murder of a female — her infant child torn from her und massacred — the blight- ed hopes, th...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 September 1840

CORRESPONDENCE. — 000 — To the Editor of the' Inquirer' Sir,— In perusing the several numbers of yourjoursafr, I was not a little gratified at seeing two very important sub? jects noticed by you in Nos. 6 and 6— one of a secular na ture, and the other of far more importance, being of* spi ritual nature. I allude to the inquiries made by you relative to the intended Church at Perth, «ad to your remarks re specting the utter inefficiency of the Postage regulations. And first with regard to the Church. How long is this dreadful state of things to last ! when the Patriarchs of old entered into any new field of duty, their first endeavour, in short their sole end and aim, was to erect something in the shape of an altar, or a temple, or some such place, to be dedicated to Him who had guided their footsteps, aud prospered their, movements. If they could only heap a pile of stones, that pile was ever deemed to be a venerable one, and has been in various places regarded as such for many ages...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer," [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 September 1840

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer ,' Sia,-— Will you permit me through the columns of your paper, to take some notice of an attack which was made last Lords day but one in the Church at Perth, by the Colonial Chaplain the Rev. Mr. Wittenoom upon the dissenting world in general, and the Wesleyans as residing in Perth in particular, charging them all with the awful sin of schism, and consequently deserving denunciation, ex communication, and final perdition : really Sir, such a statement of things has put me to a stand, and for a few days I have been hesitating what course to pursue, whether to pass it by, or to endeavour to cast off the vile odium which has been put upon us ; the latter course has appear ed to me to be that of duty, and therefore it fa I venture to offer a few strictures upon the odious affair ; and even now, I am at a loss to divine the cause of the strange outbreak of zeal, on the part of the Rev. Lecturer on the above oc casion. If my information is correct, and I b...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 30th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 September 1840

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 30th. 1840. In accordance with the promise contained in our last, we purpose saying a few words as to certain branches of the public business, at pre sent transacted in the office of the Colonial Se We frost that we need hardly say thet private feeling has* nothing to do with our remarks ; in deed were we to allow our inclination to prevail, we should be altogether silent on the matter, for in our private capacity we have received nothing but kindness ana courtesy from every officer of the department : but although this may well tend to reader our duty peculiarly unpleasant, it af fords no excuse for a failure in its performance, and we shall therefore apply ourselves unshrink ingly to the task. It is unfortunate that the re marks we felt it our duty to make in last week's journal, as well as those which may be contained in the present article must appear personal to the head of the department — we would gladly have avoided this appearance had it been in our pow ...

Colonial Secretary's Office Perth, September 28th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 October 1840

Colonial Secretary's Office Perth, September 28*/t. 1840. The Governor having had under his consider ation the inexpediency and impolicy of allowing the Colonial schooner to be employed as a carry ing vessel for private goods between the outports, whereby individual enterprise is very much in terfered with, and attempts to establish colonial coasting vessels completely prevented, — and as it is evident that bo long as this system continues no efforts will be made by the settlers themselves to establish any communication between the sta tions on the coast — His Excellency directs it to be notified for public information, that from and after the 1st of April, 1641, no private goods will be permitted to be taken on board the Colonial schooner except in cases of the most absolute and urgent necessity. By His Excellency's command, PETER BROWN. Colonial Secretary.
