THE "VILLE DE BORDEAUX." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 December 1841

THE "VILLE DE BORDEAUX." The following account of this vessel, which we extract from the Sydney Herald of June 14th, may not prove uninteresting. It may be as well to state that the "Captain Largeteau" mentioned in the account, is not the person who was in com- mand when the Ville de Bourdeaux visited our port, and that the whole account has reference to a time before the ship came into possession of Captain Symers. It will be remembered that the ship was afterwards seized and condemned by the Custom-house officers at Adelaide, but we see by the South Australian Register of June 12th,   that the supreme notice has declared such seizure, by the mere fiat of an exciseman, and without the authority of a court of justice, to have been ille- gal, and the ship is ordered to be delivered up to her owners, and that a writ of appraisement and delivery should be issued. An appeal was after- wards made to the Governor in Council, but the decision of the Supreme Court was confirmed...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 December 1841

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1841.^ The annual report of the Agricultural Society, read at the meeting on Friday last, contains a paragraph in which the imposition of a protective duty on foreign grain and flour is touched upon. The report does not go so far as positively to re commend the imposition of this duty — it merely calls the attention of his Excellency tto the sub ject, and may be considered as a nrst hint from those who will doubtless shortly be prepared to «peak out more plainly. The report, in conjunc tion with the declared opinions of the agricultu rists individually, may be taken as significant of the feeling that is abroad among the corn-growers, and we may expect that the question of a corn law, which is now being so fiercely agitated at home, and in most of the British colonies, will be taken up also in our own. We are ourselves in favour of a protective duty only under particular circumstances, many of which exist in this colony; besides the usual arguments in favour of...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 December 1841

To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — The accompanying piece of information may be interesting and useful to some of your gardening and agricultural readers. Yours, *********** ' On the anniversary of the British Associa tion, Mr. G. Webb Hall read a communication ' on the acceleration of the growth of wheat,' when, 86 connected with the acceleration of the growth of seeds generally, Professor Henslow mentioned the results of experiments which he had tried upon seeds of a species of acacia, Bent by Sir John Herschcl from the Cape of Good Hope, with directions that they should be steeped in boUing water before they were sown. Some of these were kept at the boiling temperature for three, six, and fifteen minutes respectively, and had yet germinated very readily in the open border j whilst those which had not been steeped did not vegetate. It was suggested that these facts might lead to beneficial results, by showing agriculturists that they may possibly be able to steep various seed...

EXTRAORDINARY FIELDS OF ICE IN THE ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 December 1841

Extraordinary Fields of Ice in the Atlantic. ' Great Western Steam Ship, Bristol Channel, May 14, 1841. — Sir, — Under the impression thai Ice, to tlieextctit it has been seen this year, has never before been heard of in these latitudes, I give you the following particulars for the information of your readers :— On Sunday, April 18th, the ship steering west, at 6 p.m. first saw one iceberg on the starboard bow ; at 7 30 passed it : at that time four or'fivo others in sight. At 0 15 passed several small pieces of ice —slowed the engines. In a few minutes after the ship was surrounded with light field ice, which appeared similar to a field I ran through on the llrh Feb., 1839. This induced me to go slowly, with the hopes of getting through as I bad done on that occasion, but by 9 30 finding it became closely packed, and much thicker, prudence dictated our escape by the same channel we liad entered. I then stop ped, ami attempted to get the ship's head to the eastward by turning ahead ...

PROPOSED ADDITION OF PORTLAND BAY TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 December 1841

PROPOSED ADDITION OF PORTLAND BAY TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The receipt of intelligence at Melbourne that the Commissioners at home had recommended that Portland Bay should be added to the South Australian territory, has caused a groat ferment among the goad people at that place, and the newspapers are loud in their outcry about Port land Bay being joined to this colony in order to pay its debts. A public meeting was held on the subject at Melbourne in the middle of September, of the proceedings of which we give a snort out line. The first resolution was — That this meeting has learned with much surprise and concern that the Land and Emigration Commissioners have recommended to the Right Hon-. the Secretary of State for the Colonies the separation of Portland Bay from this pro vince «nd its addition to South Australia. Mr Welsh, in moving his resolution, said, if the recommendation of the Commissioners were acted upon by the Secretary of State, great in justice would be done to the settle...

SCIENCE. DAGUERREOTYPE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 December 1841

SCIENCE. DAGUERREOTYPE. As much curiosity has been expressed regard ing the Daguerreotype, the following theory, having reference to the cause of the production of pictures by such means may prove interesting to our readers.. It is contained in an article by Mr. Martyn Roberts, and if not a correct view, it is at any rate a very plausible on«» : ' Although the Daguerreotype process has long excited intense interest in the scientific world, we have uot as yet had an explanation of the wonderful effects produced. I believe that even M. Arago has failed to elucidate the theory : and not only has this great philosopher been foiled, but the inventor of the process is unable to solve' the prob lem. With these facts before me, I feel it almost presump - tuous in so humble a votary of science as myself to attempt an explanation of the cause of the production of Daguer reotype pictures, but if my attempt has the effect of direct ing attention to the right path for aiming at a solution of the...

What royal dishes of melody does her bouuty pro vide for you in the shape of poetry, music, whether windy or wiry, notes of the human voice, or ravishing song of birds! Are you to stuff your ears with cotton, and vow that the sense of hearing is unmanly ? — you obstinate dolt you! No, surely; nor must you be so absurd as to fancy that the art of eating is in any way less werthy than the other two. You like your dinner, man ; never be ashamed to say so.

THE THREATENED IMPORT DUTIES. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 December 1841

THE THREATENED IMPORT DUTIES. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.'* Sib, — I have been greatly alarmed, in com mon with every one I have heard speak on the subject, by the public notification that it is the intention of the Governor to introduce a bill which shall impose an ad valorem duty on all imports. The anxiety I feel for the well-being of this colony is perhaps as great as that which agitates the breast of the most profound legisla tor in it : with this addition, that self-interest may have some hand in producing mine. This feel ing is happily unknown to lawgivers and politi cians. No sooner had I perused this sweeping notice, which affected me almost as much as a threat of incendiarism, than, starting up in con sternation, I rushed into the street, where I found men hurrying along under the same overpower ing influence. When X. seized hold of a friend by the button, and began to ask whether the Editor of the Inquirer were given to hoaxing the public, the only reply was, ' For H...
