GENERAL ROAD TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 January 1842

GENERAL ROAD TRUST. A meeting of the trustees was held in the Court House, Perth, on Wednesday ' last, E. Hamersley Esq., in the chair. - ^ , ? - The Chairman iraped by stating that it was utterly useless to v^c any sums for new works, as' there were no funds; ',£232 had been drawn out of the present quarter, and even after that was paidj there were considerable 6tiras voted for other works not yet applied. Major Nairn complained of the style and cha racter of the new fridge over the flats, 'it. had no abutments and in fact could not be called a bridge at all. He regretted that no engineer had been employed, as the thing promised to be a disgrace instead of a. convenience. Mi;. Trigg replied' that an engineer had been employed; the plan' arid specifications were the work' of Mr. ficvely, us was also everything con nected with the bridge, except the arch and the approach.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 January 1842

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1842. We invite the attention of our readers to our report of the trial at Quarter Sessions of the Aboriginal native Wi-rcar for the murder of Di/'Ung also an Aboriginal native. We are ourselves perfectly satisfied that the decision come to by the Court on the subject of its right to try the prisoner was a correct one, and we should think that no one who reads the luminous judgment ot tne Chairman can nesitate to believe that the proceeding was justifiable un der the law. On the other hand, while we dis claim any intention of ministering to an inter ference in the judicial system that is gradually being established for the control of the Aborigi nes, and from which those who are best acquainted with the subject are looking for such good result*, it must be admitted that many of the arguments need by Mr. Landor in defence of the prisoner were sufficiently startling, and in a legal sense, well entitled to consideration. It is certain that, on the in-coming of a ...

Notification by the local government that in future five weeks notice of any intended sale of Town Allotments be given, instead of two months as heretofore ; and that allotments in the towns of Perth, Fremantle, Albany, and York, should be sold in the towns in which they are situated. This change was effected with a view to     remedy the inconvenience experienced by the delay which intervened between the date of an application to purchase a town allotment, and the day of sale, especially when the allotment applied for was in a part of the colony distant from Perth.

QUARTER SESSIONS—Perth, Jan.3, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 12 January 1842

QUARTER SESSIONS—Perth, Jan.3, 1842.   Before the Chairman, W. H. Mackie, Esq., and a full Bench of Magistrates. The cases tried this day were, with one exception, of small magnitude, the offences charged being, for the most part, of petty theft, the particulars of which are in no way interesting. The last case in the calendar was that of We-war, a na- tive of the Murray tribe, accused of the murder of Dy- nung, another native. As this was the first native who had been tried by our laws for an offence committed against one of his own people, the case excited considerable in- terest. On the prisoner being placed at the bar, Mr. E. W. Landor, as his Counsel, objected to his being arraigned. He must take leave to plead to the jurisdiction   of the Court. And he did this from a sincere desire that the public might clearly understand what were those prin- ciples of justice and of law upon which the aboriginal inhabitants of this colony were brought into that Cou...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sib, — Allow me to notice a remark in your leading article of last week, which though un doubtedly proceeding from inadvertence on your part, is calculated to convey an erroneous impres sion to your readers in general. You observe that you ' disclaim any intention of ministering to an interference in tlie judicial system, that is gradually beingestablished for the control of the aborigines.' This expression would seem to infer that I seek, or attempt, so to interfere. Far is it from my wish to oppose any system or institution established according to law. The aborigines being declared to be British subjects, are entitled to the privileges of British subjects, and have a right to Counsel, when brought to the bar of a Court of Justice. In England it is now the invariable practice of the Court to assign Council to a prisoner, whenever a barrister is employed for the prosecution ; and the Council so appointed is bound to fulfil his duty towards the priso...

CORN LAWS.—WORKING OF THE SLIDING SCALE.—BY A CORN MERCHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

cotin laws. — working of the sliding scale. — by a COKN MERCHANT. (From Tait's Magazine.) As long disquisitions are at all times tiresome, and often defeat the object they were intended to promote, I shall endeavour to keep myself in moderate bounds. In commencing these remarks upon the Corn Laws, I think a few words in explanation of the manner of their working may not be misplaced. The duties are regulated by the aggregate of six weeks' general averages, compiled from the returns of one hundred and *fty towns in Eng land ; these returns are made up frem.tlie sales of British grain. In London the seller is the person required to give this return ; in all other places it is i.he duty of the buyer. Each week a fresh average is added to the six, the earliest of which is struck off; by this means a constant variation in the aggregate is effected. When the wheat aggregate arrives at sixty-six shillings per quarter, the duty, which only receded previously at the rate of one shilling per ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

To the Editor of the Inquirer. Sir, — My attention has been drawn to the re port of onr excellent Protector of natives as pub lished in the last Gazette ; especially to that part which treats of the recent baptism of and subse quent marriage celebrated between two young na tives 'according to the rites of the Christian Church.' I find that this is denominated ' an experiment' but I am not able to discover whe ther this phrase is used only as affecting the marriage or is also extended to the more awful rite and mysterious Sacrament of Baptism ; if the former only he meant, I cordially agree with the Protector as to the value of the ' experiment' although in this case it appears to have failed ; but if the word be used as applicable to the rite of Baptism I must not be silent. Where have we any inward and spiritual graces as exemplified in the confession of faith professed, and acts subse quent thereto mado, by the natives in question, to warrant me in calling the administering the ou...

MISCELLANEOUS. EVENING PARTIES IN "MIDDLE LIFE." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. EVENING PARTIES IN ' MIDDLE LIFE.' (Fraser,for August.) The system of eveuing parties is a false and absurd one. Ladies' rony frequent them professionally with an eye to a husband, but a man is an ass who takes a wife out of such assemblies, Staving no other means of judging of the object of his choice. You are not the same person in your white crape and satin slip as you are in your morning dress. A man is not the same in his tight coat and feverish glazed - pump?, and stiff white waistcoat, as he is in his green double breasted frock, his old black ditto, or his woolen jacket. And a man is doubly an ass who is in the habit of frequenting evening parties, unless he is forced thither in search of a lady to whom he is attached, or unless he is compelled to go by his wife. A men who loves dancing may be set down to be an ais ; and the fashion is greatly going out with the increasing good sense of the age. Do not say that he who lives at Home, or frequents clubs in lieu ...

LITERATURE AND THE DRAMA. EXTRACTS FROM NEW BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

LITERATURE AND THE DRAMA. EXTRACTS FROM NEW BOOKS. . PAUISIA.N HOSPITALS AND THEIR MANAGEMENT. — The Paris hospitals are larger and more numerous than those of London ; several being appropriated to particular classes of disease, whicli can thus be studied to greater ad vantage. They are not, as in England, dependent upon voluntary donations and subscriptions, but are under the superintendence of Government ; their affairs being direct ed by an administrative council, and the funds being sup plied by contributions from the town, a percentage upon the receipts at the theatres, the profits of the Mont de Pie'te, and other sources. Patients are admitted on application, if their cases admit of relief, but few being refused for want of room. They are attended upon by the Soeurs de la Charite ; who devote their lives, or a certain number of years, to these arduous duties. The physicians and sur geons are elected by concours, or public competition ; which certainly offers to the sick a bet...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 1842. We have lately seen in a North American paper, called "The People's Advocate," an arti-   cle headed "Caution to Whalemen," in which bitter complaint is made of the rate of pilotage demanded at Swan River, of the port, the harbour master, the price of provisions at Fremantle, and of the alleged practice of charging pilot dues when the vessel has been brought in by its own commander. We shall make a few remarks on the subject of the pilot dues, as it is one on which complaint has been made by very many of our own colonists, especially by the inhabitants at King George's Sound, who allege that the high rate of pilotage is calculated to drive away the American whalers from our ports. The writer in the People's Advocate has not failed to exagge-   rate the particulars of which he treats, and he seems moreover to be excited by some personal animosity against the Harbour Master, which leads him into unfounded statements. Swan River is...

MEETING OF THE PERTH TOWN TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 19 January 1842

MEETING OF THE PERTH TOWN TRUST. A meeting of the trustees was held in the Court-house, Perth, on the 12th instant; Mr. James Purkis in the chair. The declaration having been duly signed by all present, the Chairman stated that he had ad dressed a letter to Dr. Hinds, the Chairman of the past year, requesting him to forward by the collector the account current, with any other papers connected with the affairs of the Trust, for the information of the meeting, but obtained no reply, in consequence of Dr. Hinds being absent from town ; he had found, on inquiry at the Western Australian Bank, that there was a balance in fovour of the Trust of £22 4s. 6d. He regretted this was the only information it was in his power to communicate to the meeting. Proposed by P. Brown, Esq., and seconded by G. Leake, Esq., — That W. B.

The quarterly subscription to this journal ends with the present No. The Editor respectfully requests his friends will forward the amount of their subscriptions to him at the office, or pay it in to his account at the Western Australian Bank. ? WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26,1842. The various notices lately given of sales by the Sheriff of goods taken in execution, hitherto a most unusual circumstance, have drawn the attentioii of the mercantile part 0/ the community to the Lad working of the existing; law as regards debtor and creditor. The detect in svstem is only now making itself apparent, because llie law is now for the first time being acted on to any con siderable extent; insolvents, uutil \ery lately, having been fin unknown class in the colony. Complaint is made, and we think justly, that the practice of a debtor confessing judgment in favour of one creditor to the exclusion of the remainder is unfair and dangerous, especially where there are no bankrupt or insolvent laws for the pr...
