VARIETIES. ANCIENT NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

VARIETIES. ANCIENT NEWSPAPERS. The Romans, though we are apt to overlook the fact, had registers of politics and intelligence, which were really not unlike our own newspapers in their contents, but immea surably iuferior in the mode of circulation. The journals of the Senate and National Conventions long contained little more than entries resembling those in our collected Acts of Parliament. These furnished most of the materials from which, till 626, the pontiffs compiled their annals ; and there is also proof that, after the republic had extended its dominions, those official journals were regularly copied and trnngmfttaf to public men living at a distance. Bnf these sources were wot enough. Every man abroad Dad his correspond entb in Home; and whun the task of collect ing news became more' difficult, several persons assumed newsinonging as a tn.de, taking, iu short-hand, notes of the proceeding at public meetings, and falling copies of them, as well as of the common gossip of the ...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." PERTH CHURCH.— FROM V. WOOD, [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

To th$ Editor of the ' Inquirer.' PERTH CHURCH. — IKOK 0. WOOD. Sib,— I have heard, with great enrprue, that the Church Committee have actually ordered an iron roof for the church now erecting in Perth. I trort I am mfein formed ; for a more fatal error they could scarcely have fallen into. It is true that in England, where quick and ereat transitions of temperature are not frequent, the ubo of these roofs may not be only economical in the first in stance, but Kkewiie enduring. But it is a false conclusion to say, ' therefore, such a roof mutt be cheap and durable here.' Let the Commissioners ask any one who has Men iron stores in use in an Australian climate, and they will learn that they are costly in the extreme, intensely hot, and prejudicial to the building on which they are erected. For a proof of the latter, I can refer, from my own know ledge, to the iron store of a merchant in Adelaide, where the iron part of the erectiou was elet ated on dwarf walls 2 feet in height, yet e...

TO THE COLONISTS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

TO THE COLONISTS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Gentlemen, — Whilst seeking to agitate a measure which has for its sole aim the good of the community, 1 would fain carry along with me the favouring wishes asd answering efforts of those who are equally interested with myself in the success of my proposal. But I have not ar rived at the 'sere and yellow' autumn of man hood — I have not travelled so far down the vale of life, combating its .perplexities and cares, with a mind not wholly uninstructed by; them — and yet have failed to perceive that an union of inte rests does not ensure an union of efforts. Those projects which affect \is with no anxious appre hensions for their success, are acquiesced in with listless indifference. Unanimity prevails whilst hopeB and fears are permitted to slumber. But when success is an object of personal feeling, when our private interests are affected, when our passions are awakened, when the chords which vibrate in our bosoms are likely to be jarred by disap...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' SIR, — Some time since a notice appeared in the Government Gazette stating the intention of the government to introduce a bill into the Legisla- tive Council to prohibit squatting, under heavy penalties, and as the time is fast approaching for the meeting of Council, I have been rather sur- prised that so little has been publicly said on the subject. I know not what your opinion may be of this measure, but mine is, that entirely to pro- hibit squatting would be to half ruin the settler. What are we to do with our stock at the end of the summer, when the natives have fired most of the country ? Squatting, allowed to a certain ex- tent, is beneficial to a new country ; it is only by experience that we can ascertain the healthiest and best runs for stock. To purchase land in a new district, before it has been tried, or its extent known, is, to say the least, unadvisable ; Kojo- nup, for instance. The purchasers of land there, I have no ...

THE ROUTE TO INDIA THROUGH EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 March 1842

THE ROUTE TO INDIA THROUGH EGYPT. The following very interesting particulars concerning this route are extracted from the Times : — As the settlement of the Eastern question, and the extension of steam communication to the eastern presidencies by the Peninsular and Orien- tal Steam Navigation Company, leave little doubt that the high road to British India will now be permanently established throngh Egypt, correct information as to the mode and means of transit through that country becomes a matter of public interest. The following brief account of the journey from Alexandria to Suez, of the passengers by the January trip of the Oriental, may be deemed of sufficient interest to merit a place in your columns. The Oriental was under steam on her voyage from Falmouth to Alexandria only 12 days, 9 hours, and 45 minutes ; but the advantages to the passengers which would have been gained by so short a run out, in affording them time for proceeding leisurely through Egypt, was lost by our b...

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 1843. We have thought it advisable to publish the entire memorial which is now in course of signa ture against the proposed prohibition of squat ting.

To the Colonists of Western Australia. LETTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 March 1842

To the Colonists of Western Australia. LETTER II. The principle of self-intere9t is so natural, and when unalloyed with meanness, so just and pro per, that I do not affect to treat it with tbe contempt of those exalted moralists who allow n;» quarter to their fellow-creatures, when they per ceive in them the weaknesses ofhiunanity. But the principle of self-interest becomes really base and contemptible, when it pushes the welfare of others entirely out of view, when it urges a man to sacrifice another's fortunes to his own, when it wraps him in a web of selfishness, shutting from his heart the lust rays of that early Light, which in the morning of life strove to kindle into ani mation the natural and latent impulses of gene rosity and benevolence. That principle oT self-interest whieh I refuse to condemn is of a more praiseworthy and respecta ble character. In its wide and sagacions survey, it embraces the welfare of the community ; it finds itself united to the common cause of soci...

CORRESPONDENCE. ' To the Editor of the Inquirer.'* Sir, — Although I have great confidence in the general policy and sound judgment of our excel lent Governor, and in his unceasing efforts to promote the general prosperity of the colony, yet, through want of information, I am unable to 'an- swer faultfinders on one point, namely, the non use of the land fund. The questions they most confidently ask are generally the following j why have three years been allowed to elapse, and £5000 to be accumulated without any immigrants having yet arrived to relieve the toilworn settler of part of his toil, and the insulted master from the capricious insolence of his present pam pered and tyrannical servants? Might not a por tion of it long since have been paid the General Land and Emigration Commissioners assisted by the home government, by whose means we might already have received relief? Others, who object to government interference in the accom plishment of an object easily and much moro econ...

VARIETIES. Complete Submergement of a Pottery Island. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 March 1842

VARIETIES. Complete Svbmergement of a Pottery Island. ?—Vestiges of Roman potteries are discernible in many parts of our island, especially Staffordshire. Governor Pownall relates that in his time (1778) the men employed in fishing at the hack of the Margate Sands, in the Queen's Channel, fre quently drew up in their nets some coarse and rudely-formed earthen-vessels. It was for some time believed that a Roman trading vessel, freighted with pottery, had been wrecked here ; but, on more particularly examining the spot, called by the fishermen Pudding-pan Sand, some Roman bricks were also discovered, cemented together, so as to prove that they had formed part of some building. Further researches showed, that in Ptolemy's second book of geo graphy, an island was designated as existing in the immediate vicinity. Such pans as were re covered in a sound state* were of coarse material?, ond rude workmanship— many having very neatly impressed upon them the name of Attilianvs ; fragments of ...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 March 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir,— Permit me, through the medium of your columns, to inform our Postmaster-General of the very great inconvenience which strict obedience to the general orders that no post-office keeper shall deliver any letter whatever without immediate payment, must cause letter-receivers, where so very few, as in this colony, are in the habit of keeping any money whatever at home. The inconvenience, indeed, is so great and ob vious, that I need not expatiate upon it — in fact the mere mention of it would convince any one ac quainted with the habits of the colony of its im practicability. Wherefore, and also because the loss and inconvenience of the present generally adopted credit system to all post-office keepers is very great, I wish to suggest that the adoption of a four-penny stamp, precisely similar to the penny stamp in use at home, and purchaseable at all post-offices, seems an easy, economical, and de sirable method of escaping all the inconveniences ...
