To the Editor of the " Inquirer". Concordia Crescimas. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 January 1842
To the Editor of the ' Inquirer:' Concord id Crcsr im'ua. Sir, — The Perth Gazette some short time back iue-fly observed, ' Tr. is givatly to be re gretted when the discuf-pion of matters of public interest lead? fo the display of angry feeling.' It is also a feeling much to He deprecated that pri vate ouarrels should deter irentlemcn whose talenJs would unquestionably render their attend ance of infinite utility to the public, from being present ni. public meetings. I allude more espe cially, Mr. Editor, to the annual meeting of the Perth Town Trust, from which (though pretty numerously attended) many gentlemen of influ ence were absent; and this is said to have been caused from an ill feeling having arisen on the subject of the jetties now erecting in Perth Water. That there are oomp grounds for this report roust be obvious to any resident of Perth, and with a viuw lo assist in putting an end to a feel ing so injurious to all concerned in the several speculations, and prejudicial ...

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY.To His Excellency Governor Hutt, Patron of the Society. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 January 1842
ANNUAL REPORT OF TKE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN AGUICULTUKAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. j To His Excellency Governor Hutt, Patron of the Society. gJfif — We have the honor to present to your Excellency our tenth Annual Report, rit the close of one of the finest seasons for Agricultural pursuits the Colonists have experienced. The erops of grain are beyond the ordinary average, and hay unusually abundant. The rains have continued to the present time, and the crass is. therefore sti'l green and plentiful, and stock in consequence is generally in fine condition. The knowledge we have attained, from the experience of twelve years, of our admirable climate, ceems to warrant en almost implicit reliance on the re. gular succession of favourable seasons. This cheering prospect, however, continues damped by a painful feeling, that the absence of a sufficient supply of labour will not enable us to avail ourselves of the resources of the country. It is true that the arrival recently of above one hundr...

HIS EXCELLENCY'S REPLY To tlie Secretary of the Agricultural Society. Sir, — I have the pleasure to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of this same date accompa nying the Annual Report of the Western Austra lian Agricultural and Horticultural Society. . It is highly gratifying to me to find, that tfca statements contain^ Ir. this report fully confirm tho impressions 1 received, in a visit which I lately paid to some of the districts, of our colonial s prosperity. - 1 shall be happy to lean? that the efforts which are making to introduce new and useful plants, and to perfect the culture of those already in the country, have proved successful, and that the additional supply of such diligent and skilful labourers, as Germans and Moravians have else where proved themselves to be, has been ob tained. I request that you will offer my sincere con gratulations to the gentlemen of the committee upon the condition and prospects of the colony, and if I decline stating any reasons in opposi...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE PILOT DUES.To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 January 1842
CORRESPONDENCE. THE PILOT DUES. To the Editor oftlie ' Inauirer.' Sir, — The acute pangs which I suffer when compelled to differ in opinion from the ingenious Editor of the Inquirer can only be compared with those of one given over to the transports of that complaint which seizes a man by the small of his back. Reverence and veneration require me to be silent when I hear the enunciation of his authoritive sentence, whilst on the other hand my fervent zeal for the welfare of a suffering public urges mo into the ranks of dissent. Thus am I torn by contending duties ; appe tite fails, the pulse approaches 120, and to save myself from brain-fever and a certain celebrated doctor, I seize on a pen, and thus give vent to my feelings. You, Sir, seated in your editorial chair, and in the calm contemplation of types and proofs, and of that moral dignity by wkieff foil are surround ed, are almost unconscious of the anxieties Rnd difficulties which at this time afflict us of humbler mould.

VARIETIES. MESMERISM. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 January 1842
VARIETIES. 4 MESMEBIBM. M. Delafontaine has appeared at the Hanover-square Booms, to exhibit certain experiment! in mesmerism. Hav ing read a lecture, he introduced the subject of his oper ations, a youth of a sallow complexion, and about seven teen or eighteen years of age. He was seated in a arm chair, and the operator took off his left-hand glove, drew a chair to the right of the youth, then placed his left thumb upon the apex of his (the youth's) right thumb, and two fingers on the fleshy part of the ball, and looked him steadily and fixedly in the face. It was about two or three minutes before any visible effects beyond a little spasmodic action, were produced. The somnambulism be ing complete, the operator drove several pins forcibly into the head and cheeks of his subject; but the somnambulist gave no indications of sensation. In fact he seemed dead, and the interest excited in the room was expressed in sup pressed sighs. A phial of concentrated ammonia, to strong that no oae...
THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY,FEBRUARY 2,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 February 1842
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1842. Tt is very strange, but it is no less true, that whenever allusion is made in this journal to any subject of public interest, there are not wanting those who, with a sensitiveness peculiar to sus picious dispositions, straightway view it as a per sonal attack, and as an attempt to traduce the par ticular individuals upon whom the subject mat ter may happen to bear. We cannot sufficiently condemn this absurd notion ; it is the thing dove not the doer that con cents us ; in exposing anything (hat we think wrong — whether such exposure be made directly by our own remarks, or through the means of a correspondent, — we have a much better motive than a desire to make an attack upon private in dividuals, of whose existence we only know as they may be brought under our notice by the subject in hand. Some portions of the public must be more or less mixed up with every ques tion so brought forward, and if we were to hesi tate to notice them on this account there w...
To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 February 1842
To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — I have to plead my absence from home as an apology to the inquisitive sheep-farmer for not answering his numerous queries before tins, as it was necessary for me to refer to our sheep book to get an exact return ; but I trust your correspondent has not allowed mv apparent neg lect to annoy him as muck as it appears he was at our shepherd getting the first premium. [That there was a slight error in the return I sent to the Agricultural Society I do not deny, and I in tended rectifying it at the next meeting — but it would not have made any difference in the deci sion ef the judges, as we had more lambs in proportion to the number of ewes than any of the other applicants. I will now give you, for the information of the sheep-farmer, as correct an account as I can come at. We had about 563 breeding ewes in our flock last season, fifteen of which had couples, and about thirty-seven tegs had lambs, making altogether 600 ewess which had Iambs; and ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer". [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 February 1842
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.1' Sir, — At last some notice has been taken of my humble endeavour to elicit information on a subject of no small importance ; but what notice ? a shuffling attempt to hide the truth, on the ground , favoofh, that no ttiftn has a right to search after this bashful lady save he be blazoned ftfrth by style and title — an assertion coming with a bad grace from one who himself conceals his name. ? . Before I go further, let me, once for all, sav, that to publish my name, would be but to mate enemies amongst a body of men, most of whom I esteem from the bottom of my heart, however deep may be my detestation of the line of conduct in this matter to which they have been advised, and to which I sincerely hope they have, been unwittingly led. With the body of Methodists I have no quarrel ; with the man who could have advised and administered the Sacrament to a Pagan infidel, I have no peace. I am not to be answered, Sir, because— Ood save the ...
THE FRENCH INFANTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 February 1842
THE FKENCH INFANTKV-. ( From the Naval and Military Gazette, July 5,) i The officers obviously claim priority of notice, for their superior qualifications, their devotion to the Service, and the remarkable contrast which they bear to those of our own Army. Educated at the Military schools, and alwayB subjected to a strict discipline, their hours of study oecu pifcd in the acquirement of the science of war, fortification, surveying, Military drawing, geometry, and mechanics find even their pastimes partaking of a technical cbaractei the iteves promoted to commissions in the Army are in comparably the best officers iu the world. A comparison - can scarcely *be attempted; but it has not unfrequentiy oc curred to me that there arc many points of resemblance be tween them and theofficersoftha Company's service, who, like the French, are a class svi generis, but far inferior in useful attainments. Behold the officers of an Infantry regiment, clad in red pantaloons (some with straps and do...
To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 February 1842
To the Editor of the 'Ituntirer' Sir, — I fear you will think I presume too xonch on your good nature in thus so frequently putting it to the test by my uncalled' for lucubra tions. Man is an animal disposed by nature to give advice, but not to receive it. Hence the vast annual expenditure of good council unpro fitable bestowed. Still do we all persist m denouncing the faults of others, and in maintain ing our own. There are times perhaps, when markets fall, and garden produce is held in slight esteem, that Colon'cus rails with too much bitterness of spirit ; but there are times also when he could write more in sorrow than ia bitterness; when he won d entreat rather than counsel. The feverish panic, and the consequent dis tress, which at present prevail throughout the colony, require the sober consideration of every right-minded individual. It is in seasons of alarm that the natural character of men is elicited. The Gelfish and unprincipled rush forward to se cure themselves from pe...
