To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 May 1842

To tlw Editor of the "Inquirer." SIR, — A correspondent ' Migo,' to the Perth Gazette, in his answer to, or rather comments on, Mr. Landor's letter in the '' Inquirer" of last week, has committed several errors, which, lest   they should mislead the public I should wish to correct, without any intention of arguing on the subject ; that I leave to Mr. Landor himself. ' Migo' asks, who is there prepared to pro- nounce the natives naturally cruel? Why, I should imagine every person who knows anything   about them : look at their treatment of their enemies, wives, and all living animals, consider- ed as game ; that treatment may be their custom but it is undoubted cruelty. He says further, " they have undoubtedly an idea of an evil spirit by which their misdeeds will be punished,'"im-   plying, that the evil spirit only punishes their misdeeds ; whereas their belief is that the evil spirit is always planing for their harm, whether they be employed ...

EXTRACTS FROM NEW WORKS. THE CHILDHOOD OF WARREN HASTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 May 1842

Extracts from new works. THE CHILDHOOD OP WARRBN HASTINGS. « Warren, the son of Pynaston, was born on the 6th of December, 1732. His mother died a few days later, and he was left dependent on his distressed grandfather. The child was early sent to the village school, where he learned his letters on the same bench with the sons of the peasantry. Nor did anything ia his garb or fare indicate that his life was to take a widely different course from that of the young rustics of whom he studied and played. But no cloud could overcast the dawn of so much genius and so much ambition. The very ploughmen observed, and long re membered, how kindly little Warren took to his book. The daily sight of the lands which his ancestors had pos-   sessed, and which had passed into the hands of strangers,   filled his young brain with wild fancies and projects. He loved to hear stories of the wealth and greatness of his pro genitors — of their splendid housekeeping, their loyal...

CIVIL COURT. CHARLES PRATT V G. F STONE, ESQ., SHERIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 May 1842

CIVIL COURT. CHARLES PRATT V Q. F STONE, ESQ., SHERIFF. This was an Action to recover the sum of £73 12s 3d. money had and received for the use of Plaintiff. The Plaintiff appeared in person, and stated his case to the following effect : — That he regretted the necessity that compelled him to bring the High Sheriff of Western Aus tralia, before the Court, but he was obliged to do so, from the conduct of that officer, who, from time to time, with notice, upon notice, had evad ed a settlement of debt. The Plaintiff was not in the habit of bringing debtors into Court, and had never oppressed a single individual by law, in the colony; but as the Defendant was the High Sheriff of the colony, and a Bank Director, he had no claims on his commiseration. In January last, he had taken out a writ of Ex ecution against the goods and chatties of Mr. William Gibbs, for a debt. Mr. A. H. Stone was at that time the acting Sheriff, and he informed the Plaintiff that there was no necessity for its im...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 18,1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 May 1842

WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 1642. Our readers will perceive by our advertising columns, that a meeting is called on Saturday n-xt to ' lay the foundations' of the projected Western Australian Society, of which much has lately been said in this journal. In good time too our friend ' Colonicus' has sounded a further note of preparation and encouragement, and we join our entreaties to his that our brother colo nists will meet on the desired occasion. We believe that the chance of ultimate good to be effected by the Society is pretty generally ac knowledged. Some few there are who have expressed dissent from the proposed arrangement, but these are they who either lack energy, or who have mistaken the objects of the Society. These objects are, in few words, to bring the colony of Western Australia before the notice of the British public, in like manner as the other colonies have been brought forward. The intention is not to puff ourselves off, in the common and odious sense of the term, as some f...

TO THE COLONISTS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. LETTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 May 1842

TO THE COLONISTS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. IETTER IV. Gentlemen, — Although I hear of many ap provals of the scheme for forming the u Western Australian Society,' I hear also of much luke warraness, and of some dissent. But I have never heard any reasons adduced for these. Let me ask you, then, why you hesitate ? Is it that you have anything better to propose ? Perhaps you are affronted that the suggestion has emanat ed from so lowly a source. Perhaps you are already sufficiently contented with your lot, and desire no more of the riches, and the accompany ing disquiet, of the world. If so, I admire and reverence your moderation. Happy, I fully be lieve, may all those be who contentedly resolve to make this spot their earthly resting-place, and look no more beyond it. Let us enquire into the subject philosophically, and metaphysically. In the actual realities of life, men are pretty much alike in their condition everywhere. The great business of making money is accompanied with as many c...

EXTRACTS FROM NEW WORKS. MADEMOISELLE MARS AND HER HOUSE.

NEW BOOKS. [From the ' Ksarutner.'] The Deerslayer: a Tale. By J. Fenimore Cooper, Esq. 3 vols. Bentley. This tale is written in Mr. Cooper's best style : the style which won him his repute, and by which he will live. When nothing but a tradition of the magnificent race of the Red Indian shall be left to civilised Americans ; when they have lost even such indifferent traces of the original White Hunter of the west as their half-civilised ' alliga tor' of Kentucky has been wont to furnish; — the Leather Stockings and R-d Jackets, thanks to Mr. Cooper, will have lost nothing of their fame; nothing of their native wit ; nothing of their hardy truth and rude generosity. Mr. Callings exhibition has been very well in its way, but it js nothing to a book of this kind. A good, faithful, life-like hook, what can compare with it?

COLONIAL LIFE INSURANCE, AND ANNUITY [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 May 1842

Colonial Life Insuhance, and Annuity Company. — We are glad to observe that this Company which was formed vlriuSy through the means of friends to the colonies, and of this col ony in particular, is now in full operation. We have seen with pleasure some oft he policies issued to persons in the colony, and viewing- generally the advantages offered, cannot fail to recommend a serious consideration of the rates of this Society. In the first place, assurances are calculated here at the low comparative rale of English interest, while money is of considerably greater value; and in case of accident the money assured might be made immediately available. The married Mechanic of twenty -five will ob serve that by the payment of so small a sum aa eight-pence per week, bis family would receive, in case of any accident to himself, a sum of iilOO.

COAST-LINE OF ROAD TO LESCHENAULT. To the Editor of the " Inquirer" [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 May 1842

COAST-LINE OF nOAD TO LESCHENAULT. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sib, — With reference to one of the difficulties imagined as operating against the adoption of the above line, on account of the winter freshes or current of the Murray, as far as the ferry is con cerned, I Mould suggest that instead of the boat being hauled across the stream broadside on, it might be securely anchored by a long cable, &c, with its stern to the current, and either pulled across the river by lines, or even steered, without difficulty, for it is certain it would go to the centre of the liver in a strong current of its own accord. I question if this principle might not be adopted with advantage in other ferries, where the river is not very wide. Yours, &e., AQUARIUS.

ON THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN NATIVE. LETTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 May 1842

ON TGHE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE WESTERN AUS- TRALIAN NATIVE. LETTER II. SIR, — Of the five varieties of the human race, it will be necessary to consider two more particu- larly — the Ethiopian, and the Malay. The natives of Van Diemeu's Land approached nearer to the former, while the Australian more resem- bles the latter. In the Ethiopian the skin and eyes are black, the hair black and woolly, the forehead low, narrow and slanting, the cheek- bones prominent, the jaws narrow and projecting, the upper teeth oblique, the chin recedes, the nose broad, thick, flat, and confused with the extended jaw, the lips thick ; the knees turn in, in many instances. The Malay has the skin brown, approaching to black, although often not darker than that of the Spaniard ; the hair black, more or less curled, and abundant; the head rather narrow, bones of the face large and prominent, nose full and broad towards the apex, mouth large. The Australian, in the form of his face and the texture of his hair, mor...
