SECOND ANNUAL R.KPOUT OF Tllli VOHK AGRI CULTURAL SOCIETY. To His Excellency (jo'vernor llutt, Patron. Sia, — We have the honour to present to your Excellency this our second annual report, and in doing so, we have great pleasure in stating that we have been blessed with one of (lie finest sea sons ii-r the fanner that we have ever experi enced since the formation of the colony. The flocks are generally . healthy : from strenuous exertions they have in many instances been entirely cleansed from that irritating disease the scab; its existence we attribute in a great measure to importation, and we hope means will be taken to prevent contagion, and that it may in time be completely destroyed. The crop of lambs has been abundant; the clip of this season shows an improvement both as to quantity and quality ; the wethers too have gone fo market in unusually fine condition. In addition to those previously imported, we would notice some Anglo-merino rams lately introduced by Messrs. Landor ...

FUNERAL OF DOCTOR CARPENTER, AT AUSTRALIND. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 March 1842

' (Communicated.) FUNERAL OF DOCTOR CARPENTER, AT AUSTRALIND. The great esteem in which the late Dr. Car penter was held by all the officers, settlers, and inhabitants. of Australind, and of the surround ing district, arid the circumstance of his death being the first which had occurred among the whole body of persons who came out in the Island Queen and Parkjield, or have sir.cj bean residents in the new settlement, comlhed ta render his funeral aa occurrence of the d epest and most melancholy interest. Indeed the death of Dr. Carpenter was considered an irreparable loss to the colony at large, and every one who knew him felt as if he had lost a brother. All were therefore anxious to show their respect for his memory by paying every possible attention to his remains when the last sad offices were to be performed, for which Sunday morning, the 13ih inst., had been appointed. Dr. Carpenter having died at Belvidere, on Mr. Prinsep's grant, on the opposite side of Leschenault Inlet, wh...

ORIGINAL POETRY. The fall of Wolsey. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 March 1842

ORIGINAL POETRY. The fall of Wolsey. Loud rings the Clarion on the startled ear, And echoing Bhouts the very skies assail ; Banners and streamers in the midst appear, And give their ample volume to the gait . A long procession moves across the plain, Gorgeous with pomp and splendid pageantry ; Princes and prelates swell that gallant train Which onward sweeps in slow solemnity: Th1 admiring crowd with hasty iff p retreat Back from the Marshal, heralding the way, Tl-e serf*, with slavish adulation, greet Tim lordly presence of that briglil array. Environned by die learned and tlie great, With haughty look, ami stately step and slow, Moves the dread Wolsey in his pride of state, With more thun regal circumstance and show. Each knee is bent in lowly rev'rence down, The proud and humble equal Iiomage pay To that Lord Cardinal before whose frown Wnole nations tremble, and whom king* obey. Bright dreams of fancy floated ia his mind Visions of glory crowded on his brain : How empty are the ...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 March 1842

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 1842. For some weeks past our much esteemed correspondent ' Colon icus' has been labouring to impress upon the minds of our readers the necessity of adopting some course by which this colony might be made better known to the British public ; and he has this week brought his subject to a close by pointing out the particular way in which the object may be obtained. We entirely concur in the views of our correspondent. The necessity insisted on is obvious, and the plan re commended is both easy of adoption, and likely to be extremely efficacious. Immigration is the only ; thingwe want to make us a prosperous colony, but how can we expect that it will come until people know that there is such a place as Western Australia to emigrate to ! ? 'Colonicus' has now done his share of the work — it remains for others to cany it onto com pletion. The persons who appear first to be called upon are the three gentlemen whom ' Colonicus' urges to take the necessary steps for the...

To the Colonists of Western Australia. LETTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 March 1842

To the Colonists of Western Australia. LETTER III. Gentlemen, — I am now about to lay before you the plan which I have to propose. Probably it will receive no more attention than you have hitherto bestowed upon your most important in terests. Probably you will continue to treat such matters as beneath the dignity of a superior mind, and will therefore not condescend even to abuse my proposition. [ am too far distant from the society of the capital to know exactly your opinions ; I can only judge of them by your public conduct : and this, I must say, fills me with re verence and admiration. I observe in you that calm and lofty indifference to worldly concerns, which usually distinguishes the most exalted and eminent among mankind. 1 observe in you a most wholesome resignation to the ordinances ot Providence, making no struggle to improve a condition to which you believe yourselves justly subjected. I need not hesitate to remind men of your frame and temper of mind, that your trials a...

SKETCH OF THE RIGHT HON. C. W. WYNN. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 30 March 1842

SKETCH OF THE RIGHT HON. C. W. WYNN'. (From ttie Britannia.) Mr. Wynn is one of those few members of either House who- exercise an Influence derived from personal and not from political considerations. Mis unblemished character, his advanced age, and the length of his service in Parlia ment, combine, with other matters to be hereafter men tioned-, to render him a person of very great interest. It is an interest which, even in his political opponents, is blended with a deep respect. Mr. Wynn has been for many years past looked upon ns the oracle of the House of Commons on almost nil ques tions connected with Parliamentary precedent. His uninterrupted service in Parliament, and his habit of em ploying himself exclusively to the study of the subject, have rendered him more conversant with it than any other member of the House of Commons, so that his opinion is listened to with constant deference, if it is not always adopted. No discussion on privilege, or on any point involving the pra...

COLONIAL WOOL. The Wool grown in New South Wales has now become an object of much interest to all the Wool deuiers und Woollen Manufacturers; and from the annual increase of its quantity, as well as thegciierai improvement wliicli has been effected in its quality it appears certuin, that a few years more of judicious and 'systematic improvement must make it an ohiuct of great national irunortunce: it is there* rore desirable that those who have itiii their power to im part any information likely to he serviceable in the promo tion of such an end, should not withhold it.
