THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 April 1842

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 1842. The late English papers contain most unfa vourable accounts of the state of the country, and afford no reason for those who have had recourse to emigration to regret the step they have taken. The cry of distress is almost universal ; the pressure affecting not one particular class, but extending generally over tne trade, commerce, and agriculture of the country. In the midst of this distress, an actual fever is raging with respect to all political questions, end an excite ment prevails very little short of that which agitated the country during the worst days of the Reform Bill mania. The cry of 'cheap bread' is being uttered from the moutbs of starving millions, and it is made use of for party purposes just as the celebrated ' no popery' cry was a few years back. It is really a subject of congratulation that we, in this peaceful corner of the world, should have escaped the many vexations and embarrassments that harass the, inhabitants of the mother-countr...

MISCELLANEOUS. ANIMAL MAGNETISM. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 April 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. ANIMAL MAGNETISM. (From the Tivies.) Animal magnetism, driven from the saloons of Pnrli has taken shelter in the rooms of Hanover-square. We are much tempted to plunge into the arcana of this eximlous art of science, but we could not substitute facts half 00 startlincr as those we witnessed on Monday in the Hanover square rooms. The operator, M. Delafontalne, is«bout 40 years of age, of rather austere, perhaps thoughtful, cast of countenance. About a quarter after three he made his appearance on a raised stage at the end of tine of the small rooms in the building. A youth followed, of a sallow olive complexion, but seemingly healthy, with dark hair and eyes, and rather good-looking. We should think him about 17 or 18. He was then seated in an arm-chair, one of the common arm-chairs belonginjf-to the rooms, and the mesmerismetic operations commenced. The operator took off his left-hand glove, drew a chair to the rf» lit of the youth, then placed his thumb upon the apex...

Subscribers are respectfully informed that the quarterly subscription to this journal ends with the present No. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 1842. By the arrival of the Shepherd, we have Lon don papers to the 10th Dec. last, but they contain little in addition to the news brought by the Lucretia and Diadem. Her Majesty had perfectly recovered, and is represented as riding about as usual ; the young Prince of Wales was also in perfect health, and is said to be a remarkably fine child. The Gazette of Nov. 23rd contains a large brevet for the Army and Navy. It is very much more extensive than was expected, comprising all ranks, from Generals to Captains, and from Admirals to Mates. Upwards of eight hundred officers have been promoted by the brevet. Mr. Beaumont Smith, who was under a charge of forging Exchequer Bills to an immense amount, has been tried at the Central Criminal Court, and, having pleaded guilty to the charge, has been sentenced to be transported for life. Mr. Smith read a writt...

PROBABLE WAR WITH BURMAII. (From the Overland Bombay Courier of Nor. 1641. The topic of greatest interest at the present mo ment is the prospect of a war with Burma h. The dates of our latest intelligence from that country are Moulmcin the 22d, and and Rangoon, the 25th September. The King (Tharawaddie) was on the latter day within 70 miles of Rangoon, where it was expected he would arrive in less than a fortnight. Great preparations were being made for his reception. His Majesty had with Fiim al most the whole of his army, amounting, it is said, to nearly 50,000 fighting men, besides a large numberof followers, as also women and children. The number of boats in which they descended the river from Ava is estimated at from 15 to 18,000. The Princes of Prome and Pekan commanded the advance and rear guards, the former being one day's journey in front, and the latter the same distance behind the Royal camp. The deposed Monarch of Ava, together with every member of the Royal family, whet...

MESMERISM. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 April 1842

MESMERISM. On Tuesday M. Lafontaine gave another Matinee Mes- merique at the London Tavern, Bishopsgate-street. We shall proceed to explain to our readers, as plainly as we can, the occurrences. The patients produced by M. Lafon- taine were two ; the first was a young Frenchman, M. Eu- gene, whose symptoms under the experiments of M. Lafon- taine have been before exhibited. In the proceedings there did not appear to be any novelty. He was submitted, while under the magnetic influence, to the various tests to which he had been before exposed, and he appeared alike Insensible to the painful or other sensations produced by them. Several matches were lighted, and applied to the nose of the patient, and subsequently to the fingers of his right hand, which was suspended in a state of catalepsy. The parts seemed insensible to pain, but the somewhat lengthened application of the match to the finger of M. Eu gene burned it rather severely. M. Lafontaine, therefore, at once proceeded, as it w...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — If a few observations on the ' Austra lian Native' would be of any interest to your readers, I shall feel pleasure in throwing toge ther the few light and superficial observations I have had the opportunity of making, which I shall transmit to you, to be inserted wheuever a paucity of more interesting matter leaves suffi cient space in your columns. I intend only to examine in this particular race some of its most apparent differences from the other races of men, and to compare some of these differences with the corresponding differ ences in animals. Whether this race is derived from a stock distinct from the rest of mankind, or whether it is to be regarded as a variely ofaome of the known varieties, is a point of difficult determination: but the animals of this country have furnished no less than forty distinct and new species to the naturalist, some of them pre senting the strangest compounds of other species, and exhibiting...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 May 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer:* Sir,— Amongst the numerous able letters which from time to time appear in your paper bearing on the general prospects of the colony, there are none which give me more pleasure than those from the very admirable pen of Colonicus, who, from his retirement, appears to keep a con stant watch over us ; enlightening us with his valued opinions matured by his advanced age. But while thus acknowledging the pleasure which I in common with the little community of which I am a member have derived from these letters, I feel it to be my duty although with the utmost deference, to point out what I conceive to be a radical defect in his system — an omission which in spite of all the vigor, and all the energy which he would with so much eloquence instill into his supine brethren, will I fear, render all hip efforis as futile as the rower who attempts to stem a current which is gradually and almost imper ceptibly bearing him to inevitable destruction. I allude to th...

(From the Colonial Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 4 May 1842

{From the Colonial Gazette.) As a measure of relief for distress in the united Kingdom, Government have the credit of contemplating a scheme of extensive emigration. In the Colonies, for reasons very different from those in which the measure immediately takes its rise, the prospect will be hailed with delight. As many colonies, however, will be eager to compete for the supply of labour thus furnished, each will be anxious to know what is the amount of population at home disposable for purposes of emigration. A complete answer to the question is perhaps impossible; but tit* Population Returns of Great Britain, which have just been published, may throw some light on the snbject. The first feature which they disclose is the gross increase of the population : this, in the ten years, amounts to 2,200,000 souls. Since 1831, the state of the people has not advanced in comfort ; the country does not now offer more employments than it did then ; yet this large amount has been added to a popu...
