THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 April 1842

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 1842. We have great pleasure this week in announc ing the arrival of the Lucretiat the vessel so lone expected from England, and concerning which 6ome apprehensions had been felt. The Lucretia brings news down to the 15th Nov. last, and, among the rest, the joyful intelli gence of the birth erf a Prince of Wales, heir ap parent to the British throne. This interesting event occurred on 'Lord Mayor's day,' and some particulars respecting it will be found in another part of our journal. The next point of interest is probably the ac count of the destructive fire in the Tower of London, by which great part of that ancient edifice has been consumed. Besides the injury done to the building, which is in some sort irre parable, a severe Toss is incurred to the nation by the destruction of the Armoury, including, besides many thousand stand of arms, and imple ments of modern warfare, the curious and valuable Buits of ancient armour, many of which belonged to our former Kin...

CONFLAGRATION AT THE TOWER OF LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 April 1842

Conflagration at the tower of LONDON. No event. which has occurred in London for years' fjaet, has excited a feeling of such strong and univiereal interest ond regret as the total de struction of the most valuable portion of the Tower of London. This venerable edifice was notonW associated with the most striking periods nf niir Kiatnrv- hut was URea* as the (Trent natinnal nrsenal, and consecrated to the safe keeping of the trophies of war and conquest, which had been necumulating for ages' past.

SKETCH OF SIR WILLIAM MOLESWORTH; [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 6 April 1842

SKETCH OF SIR WILLIAM MOLESWORTH: [From the ' Britannia.'] It 1b utterly beyond my powers of comprehension to account, on any rational principles, for the motives of the political conduct of Sir William Molesworth. He is in the possession of a baronetcy of the creation of Charles the Second, and of an unfettered income of £12,000 a-year. Yet he professes to be a leader ot those wild, unmanage able, inexperienced polifcal rebels, who can be attached to 110 other party, and who, in the absence of a more philoso phical designation, are termed Ultra-Radicals. Sir William in fact is the neplus Ultra. I say I cannot understand him on rational principles — the qualification was, perhaps, necessary. Men like Sir 'William Molesworth disdain and defy all such antiquated fetters. In like manner as they imagine they create their own mental peculiarities, 60, also, they constantly hold themselves entitled to mark their own moral coile, and maintain for ever a sort of armed neutrality against com...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Mr. Editor, — At this time, when the atten tion of your readers is drawn to devising some effectual measures for furthering the interests of this colony at home, you will probably not take amiss a few hasty suggestions of an old settler. The most feasible plan that I can think of for furthering the objects in view is by the appoint ment of a Colonial Agent personally acquainted with the colony, who should reside in London, and who3e business it should be to afford and diffuse every information respecting the place generally, and in every respect to attend to and promote its interests to the best of bis power and ability. He should be empowered and directed to dispose of lands for the Crown in such posi tions and quantities, and within such limits, as the government, on survey being first made, shall from time to time see fit to direct. It should also be his business to engage such artisans, mechanics, and labourers, as the government...

To the Editor of ike Inquirer. Mn.

HISTORICAL MEMORANDA CONCERNING THE TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 April 1842

HISTORICAL MEMORANDA CONCERNING THE TOWER. It has been a common opinion that the Tower owes its foundation to the Romans, thongh unsupported by histo rical evidence. Dr. Stukeley, in his account of Stonehenge, remarks that the Tower of London was erected about the time of Constantine the Great ; and Dr. Miller, Dean of Exeter, and President of the Society of Antiquaries, says, that the Tower of London was undoubtedly the capital for tress of the Romans. The salary of the Constable of the Tower (now performed by his Grace the Duke of Welling ton) was for many years £1,000 per annum. In April, 1707, Montague Earl of Abingdon was constituted constable with the fee of £1,000 per annum, subscribed by the then Attorney-General, by Royal sign manual. On the 7th of August, 1714, His Majesty King George, by order of the Privy Council, was proclaimed by the Earl of Northampton Constable of the Tower of London, upon which the Tower guns round the rampatts were discharged, and the stand ard dis...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 13 April 1842

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 1842. ' Thehb 1s «o much Spnoranc* prevailing relative to Wettern Australia, and 10 much misrepresentation about it« affairs, that we anxiously request the communications of its friends on the eligibility of the Colony as a resource for j ?migrant!.'— Austbaiabiak Recobd, Oct. 2, 184). Thus writes the Australasian Record, and the experience of past years must have taught our brother settlers that there is but too much truth in the remark. There is 'ignorance prevailing re lati've to Western Australia,' and it is because of this ignorance that the colony has not met with the encouragement that its merits deserve. 'Vjre have been induced to make the above quotation because it affords good proof of the necessity of adopting the plan we have lately been advocating of making the colony and its advantages letter known, and also because i! gives compote rcfu. tation to the extraordinary assertion made last week by the editor of the Perth Gazette, viz., that 'it is a fa...

IN THE CIVIL COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., Commissioner, and a Special Jury. HEAL V. MELLERSH. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 April 1842

IN THE CIVIL COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., Commissioner, and a Special Jury. HEAL V. MELLERSH. This was an action to recover damages for breach of promise of marriage, and, being the first ever brought in this colony, excited consi- derable curiosity. The Hon. the Advocate General was Counsel, and Mr. Lawrence Soli- citor for the plaintiff; Mr. Schoales Counsel, and Mr. E. W. Landor Solicitor for the defendant. The plaint alleged first a specific promise to marry on a certain day, and also a promise generally within a reasonable time. The dama ges were laid at £2,000. The defendant pleaded that he did not make the promise. Mr. Nash stated the plaintiff's case to the jury. The plaintiff was about 18 years of age, and was the daughter of a gentleman, now deceased, who had held the rank of a lieutenant in her Majesty's navy.
