YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY, AND PAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 3 November 1841

YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY, AND FAIR. The annual meeting of the members of this society took place at York on Friday last; and drew together a crowd of visitors from variout parts. The bustle consequent on the arrival of so many strangers was in striking contrast with the ordinary quiet of this peaceful locality ; there could not have been less than 3 or 400 persons assembled, and we could hardly have believed that such good arrangements could have been made for their accommodation. The stock brought to the fair did not meet with such ready sale as last year, persons evi dently looking forward to a further depreciation in prices, and being consequently not very eager purchasers. Sales however to the amount of £1,000 were effected, and the following are about the prices obtained : — Cows averaging £23. A lot of ewes, broken mouthed at £1 10 0 A lot do., various ages,chiefiy ) 2 6 0 4-tooth, at ? ) A lot of ewes with lambs ? 3 7 6 Ewe lambs at ? 1 17 0 Wethers about ? 19 0 One fine lot...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1841 [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 November 1841

? WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1641 1 We lately met in a London paper with a com plaint by the editor of the difficulty of procuring matter for a leading article. If this be felt by a London editor, how much more must the difficul ty oppress us! if the endless variety of events occurring in old countries, with Uieir ciwrcJed communities, is insufficient to provide subjects for newspaper editor*, what must be our situation with regard to material, in aland which furnishes no one of the thousand events on winch it is the delight and peculiar privilege of editors to com ment ! The absence of rail-roads, and the exig ence of an inartificial state of society, shut out from us all the advantages to be derived from a Ittng column of ' Accidents and Offences ;' ev«n the truculent doings of cab-men and omnibus drivers — a fertile theme for the London papers — afford us no assistance, for, alas, in this part of the world the race is altogether unknown ; we have no cab-men, or if we have, they have...

ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE ORANGE. (Concluded from No.66.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 November 1841

ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE ORANGE. ( Concluded from No. 66.) Tempehatuhe ajNd Shelter continued. — Probably the most effectual plan for protecting the trees from the cold would be to plant them on the western side of a wall. A row might be planted the whole length of the wall, and at the distance of about 8 feet from it, and the same distance apart in the row. Where the space will allow, a second tow might be laid out 9 feet from the first. These latter will be almost as well pro tected as the first, and indeed quite so, if it hap pen that the ground slope much to the west : the object being to shade them from the morning sun, allowing the temperature of the surrounding air to become somewhat warm before the direct rays of the sun fall on the trees, — it having been found that ' the orange will bear a very great degree of cold if continued only for a short time,' but sudden heat applied to the cold plants greatly injures them. Dr, Seckler says, 'it is remarkabie how much cold and sno...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 November 1841

VARIETIES. Times Newspaper.— The following calculation has been made on tlie Times of the 5th of May last, on which day a double sheet, with a eupplemet of the same size, were presented to its readers. Each double sheet measured 3 feet by 4 feet making 24 feet superficially, and assuming that 80,000 copies were struck off, which is within the mark, the paper used for that one day would have covered 10 acres, 4 roods, and 3 poles of land. Each column of letter-press alone, independent of the margin, measured 1 foot 2} inches, and taking 06 columns, the letter-press of every number amouured to 116 feet; so that on the whole assumed number of 20,000 copies, the length of letter-press in the columns would have extended 440 miles.

STEAM—BOAT COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 10 November 1841

STEAM-BOAT COMPANY. A meeting was held on Thursday last, in the Court-house, Perth, for the purpose of arranging preliminaries for the formation of a company ibr the establishment of steam-boats to run up .and down the Swan, and occasionally to the out-ports ; the matter excited considerable interest, and the meeting was well attended. John Schoalep, Esq., being called to the chair, proceeded to slate the objects for which the meeting was assembled, and went on to say that during iris late stay in Eng land he had made it his business to inquire of several first-rate steam-boat builders what would be the cost of an iron steam-boat of 50 tons, and 15 horse power ; he had been informed that such ^ boat could be placed on our waters, complete and ready, for work, for £1,500. This cum in-' eluded the freight out, expenses of erection in the colony, and the passages of an engineer and stoker, who should be engine and boiler makers.

Sib,— That credit is due to Mr* Scboalei for bi£ exer- tions in accomplishing the object for which lie weut home, viz., the introduction of labourer Into the cojony, no one will deny.

The station at Mahogany Creek, which wee of such service to the travellers on the York road, appear* to have been broken up for the purpose of jiving opportunity to the soldiers formerly stationed' there, of wofltfng in'the towns at labourers— and. we have eoueequeutly soldiers uow employed in bifck-maktog, wood-cutting, boating, portering goods all over the town,,*ud iii fact monopolising the work which is proper to tbe labouring class.

MISCELLANEOUS. PO8TSCHIPTTO MK. m'cULLOCH'S PAMPHLET ON THK POLICY AN, PROBABLE CONSEQUENCES OP THE PRO POSED REPEAL OF THE EXISTING COKN-LAWS. ' Lord John Russell has intimated the fixed duties which he proposes should be imposed, instead of the present fluctuating duties, on foreign corn when entered for con sumption : they are 6s. per quarter on wheat, 4s. 6d. on barley, 3s 4A. on oats, and 5s. o» rye, peas, and beans. We have previously endeavoured to show, that a duty of 5s. per quarter on wheat would more than cover the excess of the peculiar taxes falling on the land, so that the addition al 38. a quarter may be regarded as a protection in favour of the agriculturists. And though (hey certainly do not require any such protection, it was probably the more ex pedient course, considering tiie prevalent notions as to the extreme low price of corn bread, to fix the duty at the out set of the new system at a higher rate than might, under other circumstances, have been proper.

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 November 1841

R E VI B W. The Comic English Grammar ; a new and face tious introduction to the English Tongjlie.~ London. Bentley. 1840. 8vo. Such is the title of one of the numerous clasp of comicalities which the English Press has of late years so abundantly putibrth. The present age is decidedly one of a peculiar relish for every thing comic ; the day has gone by when learned disquisition or philosophicaliuquiry was admired and read; the object of our writers appears to be rather to titillate; the feelings or 'propensities, thsn to enliven the faculties of their readers— -to appeal to the senses rather than to the understanding. Even admitting this to be an evil, the author ib not bo much in fault as the public, which chooses to encourage a pjaiticulaj.' line of literature. They who write for their bread, and by far the greater proportion of those who write at all are so situ ated, must produce such works ^s will sell, or starve. j ' 'The aoove observations only apply tothekuthor of the Gramma...

It is separated from the continent by an arm of the sea, which is so narrow that at thrue difft; rent points the distance is less than a quarter of a league. Its length is of three small leagues, at least as well as can bj judged from one of the highest mountains. It. is about a Iraguu in bread ih on its Western side, aud a league uud a half on its eastern, wiierc two tongues of laud advance into the open sea, and furui a quantity of snmil bays.
