CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 March 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — Whether La Fontaine were really the author of the interesting little history which I am about to relate, or whether the merit of it be due to the genius of some meaner fabulist, are questions which I shall leave to be solved by yourself and your intelligent readers. Several centuries ago, three small field-mice were turned out of their paternal nest by their anxious sire, who was alarmed at the outcries of his faithful spouse, announcing the speedy arrival of an increase to his family. Now the nest was of thttt»construction that it could not possibly be made to contain more than a certain number of inhabitants; the old mouse, therefore, conducted his three grown-up children to a remote corner of the meadow, after they had taken nti affecting farewell of their maternal parent, who lay gasp ing on a bed of straw, carefully disposed at the bottom of the nest. The father lost no time in setting to work, and soon scratched a conven...

DEFINITIONS OF PLEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 March 1842

Pleasure to an aspirant after fashion means a cai^or Devon shire-house, or a nod from Lady ? .' Plea sure to a school-boy means tying a string to a school-fellow's toe, when he is asleep, and pulling it till he wakes him Pleasure to a man of an inquiring mind means a toad inside a stone, or a beetle running with its head off.

To-the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 March 1842

To- the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' SIR, — During my recent overland journey from King George's Sound to Perth, the follow- ing observations, elicited from actual experience, may be deemed of sufficient importance for publi- cation in your valuable journal. The poisonous plant, by whatever name botanists may distinguish if, begins to make its appearance about 6 miles north of the Gordon River. During my ramblings in the bush to the westward of King George's Sound, as far as Cape D'Entrecasteaux, I never noticed this plant, and Mr. Bland, in striking across the country from the Sound to the Vasse, at the head of the district which I traversed nearer the sea, has reported that he did not observe it. These are important facts well worthy of notice. From the above dis- tance beyond the Gordon the plant strews the road, here and there, in various directions, to Kojonup. At the latter place, which is about 95   miles from Albany, I remained for three days, not being able to mar...

AN INQUIRY [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 March 1842

AN INQUIRY Respecting the Aborigines of South-Western Australia — Sketches of their habits and modes of life, and views of their moral notions, as contrasted with those of the European population of the Colony. By William Nairne Clark. (Continued ] It does not appear that the wars amongst the tribes are attended with very serious consequences. A few spear wounds given and received generally, although not always terminate hostilities, unless they have been commenced from more revengeful motives than usual, when a deadly strife ensues. As there has been no instance of a tribe taking male prisoners, the presumption is that the wound- ed, if unable to leave the field of battle, are speared to death by the victorious party, for when once passion, in all its horrors, gains the mastery of a native's mind, he is the worst of savages — even battering the head of his victim to   pieces, and chopping off his limbs. A different rule is adopted towards the women. If any of that sex ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 March 1842

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 1842, Another week has passed away and we still hear nothing of the Lucretia, still have to lament the want of all news from England. It is pro bable that at no time of our history has the ar rival of a ship from England been more anxiously looked for ; at the date of our last arrivals there were many things in agitation deeply affecting this colony, of the result of which our settlers have now been kept in torturing suspense for five months. The non-arrival of the expected ship has turn ed the attention of many to the v«ry precarious means on which our entire communication with the mother country depends. It is really lament able to think of the degrading state of dependan cy in which the colony is placed in this respect. There is not one person amongst us of influence sufficient to ensure the arrival of one single ship in the course of a year, and we are thus left at the mercy, we may almost say of one individual in London, who is of course guided in his oper a...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 March 1842

VARIETIES. Duration of Empires. — Among the meta phorical race of poets and orators there lias been a fondness for comparing the life of empires to the life of man, and finding in the infancy maturit}', and decay of human lite, Borne shadowing of the national power. Thus we are pathetically told that the most flourishing country has a certain point of prosperity, beyond which all must decline by the course of nature. But the argument is altogether fallacious. There is no analogy be tween individual life and national power, further than they are both susceptible of increased vigour. There is no instance in modern Europe of the ruin of any great 6tate, with the single exception of Poland,* which, from its elective monarchy, its habitual dissensions, and the general dislocation of its government, was rather to be looked on as a vast moral quagmire than a soli J government. And yet the greater number of those European kingdoms have been established for a thousands years ; and there is n...

CHARACTER OF GEORGE III From Croly's History of George IV. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 March 1842

CHARACTER OF GEORGE III. From Croly's History of George iv. The character of George the Third was pecu liarly English. Manly, plain, and pious in his individual habits, he was high-minded, bold, and indefatigable in maintaining the rights of his people and the honour of his crown. He was ' every inch a king.' The sovereign of England differs in his office and spirit from all others ; he is not an idol, to be shown only in some great periodic solemnity, and then laid up in stately uselessness, but a liv ing and active agent, called to mingle among the hearts and bosoms of men. His royalty is not a gidled bauble on the summit pf the constitution, but a part of the solid architecture, a chief pillar of the dome. If this increase his sphere of duty, and compel him often to feel that he is but a mail, it also increases his strength and security. The independence of despotism is precariousness itself ; it is the independence of an amputated limb. The connection of an English king with his...

SKETCHES OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 March 1842

SKETCHES OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. (From t/te ' Britannia') [Cuncludcd.] Is estimating the value of Sir Robert Peel's public speakiug, it is impossible to refer it to any of the usual standards of composition. To mention him in the same category with the most illustrious of our Parliamentary orators would be to exaggerate his claims ; yet he is dn doubtcdly the most influential speaker of' his day, and exercises perhaps u greater sway over the House of Com mons than even the most eminent of those men ever did. The secret of his success lies in the vast extent of his in formation, and the readiness, with which he can brin' it into play, and the flexibility of hi* mind, which allows him to adapt himself to all comprehensions, the least as well as the most elevated in intellect. It has already been sceu that the kind of speaking required for the present House, demands these requisites, and it is because Sir 11. Peel combines them in a greater state of completeness and per fection than perhap...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1842. A Memorial to the government has been just laid before us, which is to be forthwith submitted I to the land owners, stock holders, sheep farmers and others, who are interested in resisting the ob- i noxious proposal for a squattiag act in this colony. The arguments against the intended measure are concisely embodied in this memorial. After pre mising that many of the memorialists are owners or lessees of extensive grants of land, it proceeds to state, that ' in the summer season the herbage is so parched up, or totally destroyed by fire, that the sheep and cattle depastured on these grants, are of necessity obliged to bs drawn to. a distance in search of food ; that a station is therefore tem porarily formed in such places, and squatting is necessarily resorted to until the return of winter : that to declare squatting under such circumstan ces illegal, would prove most seriously injurious to the interests of the colony.' The memorial proceeds to observe th...

SKETCH OF MR. GOULBURN, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

SKETCH OF MR. GOULBURN, (From the Britannia.) There are a few individuals among the more conspicu ous Parliamentary leaden upon whom suspicion — even the jaundiced suspicion which if engendered by party spirit — has never breathed its taint. Their principles are so welt known — their conduct has been 6O undeviatingly straightforward — and the disinterestedness of their views has been 60 apparent — that no one has been hardy enough, or weak and virulent enough, to question the purity of their motives. There are members of this class on both eides of the two Houses, although from various causes, wholly independent of party opinion, they preponderate, in point of number, among the Conservatives. They are, for the most part, men of fixed and early-rooted principles, of a religious cast of mind, easy in their worldly circum stances, and more desirous of practically ameliorating the social condition of the people, than of aggrandizing them selves through the medium either of state honours...
