THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 17 November 1841

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1841. Our attention has been drawn to the large sum of money now lying in the Colonial chest, that has been received on account of the sales of Crown lands, and is consequently applicable to the in- troduction of labour. It appears that the balance in favour of the land-fund is £3063 18s. 10d. and this sum, which might be so profitable to the colony if applied to its legitimate purpose, has long been lying idle in the chest, not because the local government has not sought to apply it, but from the want of some person to see to its appli- cation at home. A land fund, although a very desirable thing, is of no more use than any other fund while it remains unemployed, it is not alone sufficient to have money in the chest, ready to pay for the emigrants on their arrival, it is also necessary that some person should undertake to bring them out, or at least to select them in En- gland, to put them on ship-board, and provide for their comforts during the passage, in ...

EXPERIMENTS ON CANINE MADNESS—CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 November 1841

EXPERIMENTS ON CANINE MADNESS—CURE. (From the Nottingham Review) The readers of the Review will recollect, that in the late melancholy and fatal case of hydrophobia, intlm town, Mr. Watertou, of Walton Hall, near Wakefidd, the cele brated naturalist, and author of '? Wanderings in South America,' wus sent for, to try the effects of the wourali poison upon pour l'helps, and that unhappily, although that gentleman came here instanter, he did not arrive until after the death of the sufferer. We may be allowed to remark, that on no disease does there exist more popular errors than on hydrophobia, or, e8 it is commonly called, madness, a term which conveys no correct idea of the ma'ady ; for when dogs are rabid, it does not follow that they are wild and furious : in fact, there are but few instances where there is a complete alienation of the mind j on the contrary, the mental facul ties will continue undisturbed — the dogs continue to know the voice of their master, and to be obedient t...

MISCELLANEOUS. NEW DESTRUCTIVE POWER OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 November 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. NEW DESTRUCTIVE POWER OF WAR. — v Ik the House of Commons, in July last, Mr. Wakley asked Lord Ingestre, whether a new invention, described in the Time* newspaper, and in a pamphlet t-y Mr. VValctby, had been correctly described? The invention was of some enormous destructive power, which had beeu tried in the grounds of Mr. Boyd, in Essex, in the presence of Sir R. Peel, Sir George Murray, Sir Henry Hardinge, Sir Francis Burdettj Lord Ingestre, Colonel Gurwood, and some other gentlemen. According to the descript'on, a boat tilled with solid timber, crossed in every direction, and clamped together with eight-inch 6pike-nails, w«s scattered in a thousand fragments by something discharged at it from a distance. Mr. Wakley thought the house and the country were entitled to some more information on the subject. If su«h a power were really in existence, it would put an end to war. Viscount Ingestre said that the account of the experi ment was perfectly true. He thought the...

FROM DR GRANVILLE'S SPAS OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 November 1841

FROM DR GHANVILLE'S 81* AS OF ENGLAND. ' At 20 minutes before nine o'clock at night, in the early part of July, I started for flarrogate by the railroad at Eustou-sqtiare. In an hour and 20 minutes it had reached Tring; at a quarter before one, Coventry lamps hud hove in sight; and, with a continuous movement, vibratory at times, and with a noise generally drumming, but occasion ally clashing, we readied Birmingham as the illuminated clock, under a much more stupendous colouuade than that of the terminal station iu London, marked 25 minutes to two, a.m. ' One hundred and eleven miles had thus been passed over in five hours (no prodigy for a railroad, to be sure,) before one could get ennuye or futigued. I am thus minute and particular, on behalf of such of my readers as are inva lids, or of a trepiduting nature, who will not be sorry to peruse what may appear trite, worthless, and commonplace to others.

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 24 November 1841

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1841.       It will be seen, from our report of the Legis- lative Council, that two acts passed last year, the one constituting the island of Rottnest a legal prison, and the other making native evidence ad- missible in criminal cases, have been refused the sanction of the Crown, for reasons that will be found detailed in our report, and that new bills have been introduced in their stead. We consider that the objection urged by the home government against the first of the se acts is well founded, and the change likely to prove beneficial, for we cannot but view with satisfac- tion any measure that takes power, no matter how small, out of the hands of the Executive, and places it in those of the Legislative Council. Very differently, however, do we view the changes that have been made in the act for the admission of native evidence. When this act was first in- troduced, now upwards of a year ago, we op- posed it, because ...

It will be seen, from our report of the legis lative Council, that the bill to admit the evidence of the aborigines has passed into a law, the Go vernor having given his casting vote in favour of it. We have taken some pains to present an ample report of the proceedings, inasmuch as we consider it of some importance that the opinions of the several members regarding the bill should be made known as well to our brother colonists as to the home government, and to that particular classof persons in England out of whose suspicions the bill has its origin. It is curious, ind to many it will be instructive, to observe the reasons given by the members pro and contra ; out of the six members who voted on the question, three gave it their most unqualified disapprobation, and the remaining three only voted for it because they thought that some law was necessary, and the home government...

CORN LAWS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 December 1841

CORN LAWS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. The question of a corn-law, which now forms one of the principal points of difference among the leaders of party in England, would seem to be .agitated in almost every part of the British dominions. An interesting discussion on the subject has lately taken place in the Sydney Council, on the motion of the Chief Justice, who presented petitions from various agricultural dis tricts praying for the imposition of a protective duty. The resolution moved by the Chief Jus tice was to the effect, that it was expedient that the duty imposed on foreign grain should be in creased from 5 to 15 per cent. The motion was opposed by some and supported by others, and ultimately withdrawn by the Chief Justice. The debate was too lengthy for us to give it entire, and we are fearful that in condensing the arguments may lose in strength; we give, however, the speech of his Excellency Sir George Gipps on the occasion, as it shows many arguments against the protective duty, a...

Where all my friends were bo active in my be half, it is difficult to single out any particular , one, but I cannot refrain from alluding more especially to the services rendered by Mr. S. Moore, to whose conduct and example £ feel my self particularly indebted. Severe as my actual loss is.
