THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 7th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 October 1840

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 7th. 1840. Our readers will perceive in our Journal of this day, a report of part of the proceedings at the trial of Jane Green for the murder of her in fant child, and although we are unwilling to keep up the public excitement in matters of this nature, there are certain points in connection with the case on which we feel bound to make a few remarks. We take this opportunity of stating that some time back we received 2 letters from different in dividuals, upon the subject of this trial, but for many reasons we thought it advisable not to no tice their contents, and all that we shall now say to the writers is, that they must be satisfied that they were in error. No man who was present at the trial can doubt that the prosecution was car ried on in good earnest — that every tittle of evi dence that could be procured in support of the indictment, was produced, and that from first to last there was not the smallest inclination on the part of the Crown to shield any on...

QUARTER SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 7 October 1840

QUARTER SESSIONS. The General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the Colony of Western .Australia were held at the Court House Perth, on Thursday last, before W. H. Mockie Chairman, and a full Bench of Magistrates. The Grand Jury having been sworn, the Chairman pro ceeded to charge them to this effect. He was happy to state that the Calendar was not heavy, there being only three bills for their consideration, but there was one case of great importance, and which would require all their care and attention ; he alluded to the case of Jane Green, who was charged with the crime of murder upon her infant child. The Jury was unfortunately but too well acquainted with come of the particulars of the case, for public report had not been silent on the occasion, but he begged them to dis card from their minds, all that they hail previously heard, and be guided only by the depositions and the other evi dence that would be laid before them. His Worship de fined in a remarkably clear manner, what ...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 14th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 October 1840

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 14th. 1840. It is very unpleasant to us to be always find ing fault, but what is the government about with regard to procuring a supply of labour for this colony ? It is now 3 or 4 years ago since a sum of money was set apart out of the colonial revenue for that purpose, and yet to this day, not a single labourer, or servant has been furnished to us. It is the fashion in England, and with Englishmen in other parts of the world, to leave every thing to private enterprise; and in this colony this very questionable principle has been by no means for gotten ; but while we applaud the spirit and per severance that has been manifested, and we hope will yet be manifested, by private individuals for the advancement of this colony, we nevertheless think, that there are some things that might be much better done by the government. Procur ing a supply of labour is one of these things — an object of such immense importance to the public should not be left to the private specu...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer," [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 October 1840

CORRESPONDENCE.     To the Editor of the ' Inquirer,' Sir— I am sorry to see in the ' Inquirer' of 23rd. Sep- tember, a letter signed " Aboriginalium Custos," giving an account of some acts of brutality committed upon the bo- dies of two Natives recently executed for murder in this district, which he says ' must ever throw a sad reproach over the district where such acts are wantonly committed.' I regret to say that the statement is in part, but only in part, correct, as I have this morning been to ascertain, your correspondent knew pretty well who were the parties concerned, I therefore think it unfair iu him to reproach the whole district for the brutal act of one or two unprin- cipaled persons, an act which every other inhabitant must condemn and feel ashamed of. In your remarks upon the letter you insinuate blame to the Magistrates generally, if huat charge is a fair one it should more particularly apply to your correspondent whose especial province it ...

(Jane Green's Trial continued) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 14 October 1840

(Jane Green's Trial continued) Francis Whitfield cross examined by Mr. Nash — I heard Jane Green say to Mrs. W. that she was ill, and I got up and spoke to her; she said 'I want my mistress,' and seemed, much agitated. Mrs. W. went out of the room in- stantly, and was away about 3 or 4 minutes, on her return she stated that she had given the girl some triffling medi- cine, and she thought herself better—the girl had not said     to witness at any time before, that she was ill—she usually     appeared at her work at a very early hour. Mrs. W. called me out of the field about 8 o'clock—the body seemed much     discoloured, as if blood was congealed in the body, and not clotted with blood. I called to Coates to move the body — I was not aware of the girls state, and she was not greatly enlarged in size—I did not observe that she was low spirit-     ed, but rather the reverse — she al...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 21st. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 October 1840

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER, 21st. 1840. Wo last week remarked upon the practicability of procuring servants from India, if only proper steps were taken to that end, and we will now follow up those remarks with some observational as to the advantages to be derived from a direc^ and constant communication with that countiy. Many of our readers need not be informed that the subject of Steam navigation between Great Britain and India, has greatly occupied the pub lic mind in both countries during the last 4 or 5 years j a general desire is evinced to shorten the intermediate distance, both with a view to facil itate the transit of passengers, and to improve the commercial position of India, which from a va riety of causes has never yet reached a pilch of greatness such as, with increased means of com munication with other countries, it is well capa ble of maintaining. Many schemes have been planned, and several new lines of route have been laid down, with all of which we are more or less remotel...

CORRESPONDENCE.     To the Editor of the ' Inquirer,' SIR, —"' To recommend the thing we love the most " is a feeling peculiar to human nature ; and with this feeling I cannot help soliciting from you, Mr. Editor, a spare corn- er in your Journal for a few remarks upon the district of York. To all parts of our habitable globe it is found necessary to make known to our fellow creatures, far and wide, the nature and properties of the country in which we live ; in order that we may either deter them from joining us, or prevail upon them to do so. With the latter of these ob- jects in view, as an humble individual of our small, but united aud happy community, I am anxious to put forth my feeble voice in support aud recommendation of a coun- try, whose properties, when more fully known will at once recommend themselves, and will no longer require the sup- port of the pen : much less of such weak support as my poor goose-quill can afford. But I am the more anxiou...
