THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 June 1842

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1, 1842. It will be seen from a notice in the Govern ment Gazette, that the session of the Legislative Council commences on the 9th instant, and we purpose here to make a few remarks with refer ence to those august senators prior to their re suming their duties. How they may be taken we know not — we trust at all events that we shall not be ordered up to the bar for 'breach of privi lege.' Every new session of Council may be expected to te of more importance than that which pre ceded it, because in proportion to the advances that the colony is making, will the matters to be brought under consideration be weighty and con siderable. The different members must not ex pect to limit their exertions by the experience of the past sessions, but must remember that addi tional duties will be imposed upon them from year to year ; as the importance of their office increases, so must their exertions to meet the oc casion increase also ; and each one, therefore, must come to Counc...

APPROPRIATION OF TOWN LOTS IN AUSTRALIND. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 June 1842

(From a Correspondent.) APPROPRIATION OP TOWN LOTS IN AIT8TRALIND. The week ending 14th May has been one of extraordinary bustle and business in our settle ment. In consequence of the notice issued by the Chief Commissioner fixing Monday, the 9th May, for the selection and appropriation to the respective purchasers of the town lots in Austral ind, according to the priority of choice which had been decided by lot in England, all parties in the colony who were purchasers, or agents for purchasers, assembled at the Chief Commission er's residence on that morning, and evinced the greatest anxiety to know what lots would be selected by or for the lucky holders who had drawn early numbers. It appeared that No. 1 had not been yet drawn ; therefore the choice of it devolved on the Chief Commissioner, who selected, for the benefit of the future proprietor, an allotment abutting on the inlet, and adjoining the proposed town quay. Others immediately chose other water-side premises, and the all...

CORRESPONDENCE. CULTIVATION OF THE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 June 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. CULTIVATION OF THE VINE. We have received the following letter from Mr. Shaw : — 'To tfte Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Dear Sir, — Should you think the enclosed copy of a letter from our talented botanist Mr. Drummond likely to be of service to the colony, I beg its insertion in your valuable paper. The very flattering compliment my worthy friend is pleased to pay me requires on my behalf something more than formal thanks; and, to carry out the views and deep interest Mr. Drum mond takes in the welfare ofthe colony, I venture to add my humble opinion in concurrence with his in regard to the admirable qualities of the native hole-land for the culture of the vin6. I am satisfied that this kind of soil may be converted „ into vineyards at an expense of little more than clearing the land, and will produce a grape and wine equal in quality and quantity to any that can be found in the world — and my attention is now being paid to it. But, Mr. Editor, one swallow does not make...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 June 1842

To the Editor oftfte ' Inquirer.' Sir, — I understand that marriages in this colony have lately been performed by Mr. G. F. Stone, the Registrar. 1 presume this recent in novation on old habits derives its origin from the late marriage act, passed by the Imperial Par liament of Great Britain and Ireland ; conse quently, marriage is reduced to a mere Civil Contract. Sime the law of England is thus re laxed regarding marriage ab initio, the law of di vorce ought to follow, making it lawful for the Governor of any colony in the British dominions to pass a Bill of Divorce a vinculo matrimonii on proper cause being shewn before him and the Legislative Couucil, or House of Assembly , or by whn''vnf nnme it may be called. Strange to say, by he Roy il instructions the Governor is ex pressly deuarred from interfering in cases of di vorce although he has otherwise almost unlimit ed power, and the injured party must resort to the House of Peers to procure that clearance from an entanglement, w...

EXTRACTS FROM NEW BOOKS. Hints for Australian Emigrants, by Peter Cunningham. — This is the title of a very interesting little work, lately published in London, by the Author of 'Two years in New South Wales.' which contains so much that is likely to be valuable to our settlers, that we can scarcely do better than give extracts from it, from time to time. We commence with Mr. Cunning ham's remarks on Ploughing, which are worthy the atlention of our farmers. — ' Ploughing. — Of nothing ore Englishmen more proud tli an the superiority of Hie English ploughs; their constant exclamation, on seeing those o I other countries, being 'How is it that no one hns introduced the English plough ?' It has however been introduced into many foreign parts, and in many of them thrown aside, on account of its not an swering so well as tlie plough of the country, while at. the same time much more expensive.

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN TIMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 June 1842

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN TIMBER. The following information and observations connected with a project for forming a company at home, to be called the Western Australian Timber Company or Association, were sent to us some time ago by a correspondent, who appears to have considered the subject very attentively. The observations so sent are highly interesting, and, whether a company shall be induced by them or not, we publish them, as they afford par ticular information on a point that must sooner or later engage the attention of capitalists at home. The object in view is to cause to be purchased, or held on lease from the Crown, by a company in England, all that tract of country in the neighbourhood of the Swan, comprising an ex tent of about 17 miles from east to west, com mencing at Green Mount, and ending at the Half-way-house, on the York road, for the pur pose of cutting down the mahogany timber thereon, and making it available as an article of merchandize, and transporting it to Great ...

To the Editor of the "Inquirer"' SIR, — As a correspondent to the Perth Ga zette, " C," seems " desirous of exhibiting his learning before the public, perhaps it may not be deemed amiss to contradict him in one fact" — which, is this.

OPENING OF THE NEW CHURCH AT MANDURAH. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 June 1842

OPENING OF THE NEW CHURCH AT MANDURAH. On Wednesday, the 1st of June, the Rev. G. King, opened this place of worship lately erected at Mandurrah, on the Murray, and after the ser vice of the day, delivered a most beautiful and impressive exhortation to the inhabitants of tdat district, his text being from the 2nd of Chron icles, 16 v. ' for now have I chosen and sanctified this house that my name may be there for ever.' It was admirably wrought and received with heartfelt joy by his congregation. It is a subject of deep regret, that amidst the desire to erect temples for the worship of God, the attention of the public should be withdrawn from the one thing needful — the Clergy — who alone can administer to the spiritual wants of the people. However laudable the objects of those contributing so profusely towards the establish ment of a Bithopric amongst us, it ought never to be forgotten that our prelate could only lead and c mfirm the good works engrafted among us by the Clergy, and...

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer' Sir, — Often as I have of late obtruded myself on the notice of the public, I will venture once more to do so whilst expressing my satisfaction at the happy issue of our joint labours in behalf of the new Society. The result has been far more flattering than my hopes anticipated; and now I gladly leave the practical working of the scheme to the Society and its Committee. To one point, however, I must venture to draw the attention of both. One of the most important benefits that could be conferred on this colony would be a regular communication with India. Were this desideratum once established, we should enjoy the cruel satisfaction of depriving the Cape of some thousands a-year, which it at present derives from Indian invalids. Every one knows that East-Indian officers lose their appointments if they fail to return within the period for which their leave of absence was granted. Most im portant therefore is it to the patron of cayenne and mulligatawn...

To the Editor of the " Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 June 1842

To the Editor of the ' Inquirer.' Sir, — Permit me to offer a word of remark on the following passage from a letter signed 'Henry Landor,' in the92d No. of the Inquirer : — ' The researches of anatomy bring us suddenly back to that record of primeval wisdom which marks the most distinctive epoch of creation — ' God created man in His own image.' ' The researches of anatomy affoid abundant evi dence of the power, wisdom, and goodness of God in the contrivance of the human frame ; but none whatever of His having ' made man in His own image.' This humbling truth could be known only by Bevtlation. The Divine ' image or likeness,' in which man was originally created, was purely spiritual; — 'the grace and beauty' of it no longer exists, although 'the human body, as the tit instrument of human intelligence, and the medium, as it were, of man's proper and spiritual being,' still exhibits the fearful and wonderful manner of its original formation. The restoration of man to that image, which...
