SAM SLICK IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 February 1842

SAM SLICK IN AUSTRALIA. We received the other day a dingy-looking letter from Fremantle, written in that ' pot-hook and hanger' style in which men indulge who are more accustomed to handle the stilts of a plough than a pen. We at first threw it aside with an impatient movement, for the postage was unpaid, and we put it down at once as the production of one of that numerous class which, on the strength of knowledge obtained by a few months' attend ance at some day-school, thinks itself entitled to write for the public. One or two words however accidentally came under our eye, and, struck with the peculiarity of style and expression, we turned to see the signature, when, to our amaze ment, we made out the name of ' Sam Slick.' On recovering from our surprise, we proceeded at once to the perusal of the letter, and ascer tained by slow degrees— for the writing was somewhat difficult to decipher — that we were honoured by a genuine epistle from this ieu fained American. How or when he ha...

WM. HENRY SLADE begs most respect- , fully to* inform the settlers in general over the hills, that he intends taking a ram-flock, and having a great many rams already engaged by persons whom he has visited, Mr. S. hopes that those settlers whom he has not had the pleasure of calling upon will avail themselves of so good an opportunity, and send him theirs also.

SKETCH OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 February 1842

SKETCH OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. (From the Britannia.) Of the many able individuals who are now to be found in the House of Commons, Sir Robert Peel is confessedly the mun who exercises as a speaker the greatest amount of influence over that assembly. Opponents and supporters alike join in admitting, that be carries to its highest pitch of power and effect the peculiar species of speaking which alone will sway the average understanding of the House. Yet no one would think of pointing to Sir Robert Peel as the man on whose shoulders the mantle of a Chatham had fallen, or, while they admitted his vast superiority, and ac knowledged his supremacy as a debater, would dream of looking to him for auy of those brilliant outbreaks of lofty wisdom or burning eloquence which have earned for the parliamentary speaking of England the title of being the first and the finest in the world. To enter at length into all the causes of this apparent de generacy is quite beyond the scope of a short personal s...

To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' -Sir,-*! have just perused the few lines from the Officiating Minister at the Baptism of War nip, published in the Gazette of the 6th instant. I know not from whom the writer -has 'learnt' my misunderstanding of the ' principles in the matter.' All I can say is, I have not been com municated with on roe subject ; have not autho rised any one to express such -misunderstanding ; never did express any such'; and, moreover, have no quarrel, as yetf on the 'principles,' for how could I when I am thus kept in the dark as to the practice by which the principle might be tested. Sir, I have ' arrived at no wrong conclusions ?' and for this simple reason— that, being unfur nished with premises by the persons whom I ought to, and did apply, I could logically attempt no conclusion j but I have, I am afraid, guessed right as to the attempt to be made to shirk and smother the whole *na#er. £ ttarer will consent to hugger-mugger the affair by- avowing a private exp...

THE INQUIRE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 February 1842

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1842. By the Frederick Huth, we are in possession of a few Cape Town newspapers to the 22d Dec. last. The latest intelligence from England is stated to be down to the 2nd October last, but the only notice of English affairs that we can see is contained in an extract from the Spectator of the 18th September, in which Sir Robert Peel is spoken of as Prime Minister, and in a report of the proceedings of the British Parliament of the Gth September, by which it appears that the Treasury benches were occupied by the Duke of Wellington, Lords Warncliffij, Ellenborough, and others of the Conservative party, and the opposition benches by Lords Melbourne, Lans down, Brougham, and others actually forming a part of the Melbourne administration, or sup porters of it. In the same report Lord Lyndhurst is stated to have taken his seat on the Woolsack a6 Lord Chancellor ; so that, although we are as yet ignorant of the particular circumstances that led to the change, there is...
