THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 June 1842

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 1842. The Perth Gazette of last week announces that 'a bill to prevent the unauthorised occupa tion of Crown Lands k about to be brought un der the consideration of the Legislative Council.' We presume that the bill thus referred to is the one with which The public has been so long threat ened as a ' bill to prohibit squatting under heavier penalties than those under the existing law,' and concerning which much was said in this journal at the time our local government first gave notice of its intentions. From the remarks mede in the Gazette, the new bill would seem to be of a very different character from what was expected ; the threatening notice put forth some months ngo in the Gazette led us to conclude that no occupation of the unappropriated Crown Lands was to be permitted, whereas it now appears — supposing the Gazette to be properly informed on the subject — that parties will be allowed to occupy, either by an annual license from the Crown, or by the paymen...

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

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Inquirer."   Sir, — It gives me much pleasure in being able to send you the local information you request in your observations on my last letter, regarding the roads and bridges in and about the Murray, and I have now no fear of being able to make the matter to you, as plain as a pigs staff. In the first place, I beg to assure you in the most pos- itive terms, your insinuation as to my possessing property, or being personally interested in the coast line of road, is entirely a mistake; I assure you, I have not a single inch of property on either the one line of road or the other, neither have I an interested motive of the most minute descrip- tion beyond a determined spirit of resistance in this as well as in every other matter wherein I see the public good likely to be sacrificed to pri- vate interest. I am perfectly aware of the won- derful discovery you noticed lately, made by the government Resident, and which you are kind enoug...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 June 1842

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 1842. In another part of our journal will be found a letter from a correspondent who 6tyles himself 'Andrew Ferrara,' and who, wielding as trench ant a blade as ever was forged by his celebrated namesake, deals out heavy blows against certain provisions of the new ' bill to prevent the unau thorised occupation of Crown Lands.' We entirely agree with our correspond ent in the objections he makes to this bill. In our comments on this subject last week, we were totally unacquainted with the details of the bill, only knowing that it provided for the occupation of Crown Lands by the issuing of licenses, or the payment of head-money, as might be thought most advisable. In bo far we approve of the rtrinciple of the bill, and so also, we have reason lo think, docs our redoubted correspondent, but our ultimate approbation must entirely depend on the way in which this principle is to be carried out. The system of issuing licenses is good, but then comes the question what s...

THE THREATENED SQUATTING ACT. To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 June 1842

THE THREATENED SQUATTING ACT. Totfte Editor of the 'Inquirer.' Sir, — There are many tren, even in this colo iijr— this minute and melancholy abstract of the world — who, having never wildly expected ad vantage from the wisdom of their rulers, have only asked of Fortune that she would not permit their efforts to be ruined by the unhappy influ ence of legislatorial protection. There is no legislature, short of an absolute tyranny, that does not profess to have for its great object the good of the people over whom it presides. For this end alone is a limited form of government adopted ; and yet, were we to judge only from the effects produced, how seldom should we arrive at the conclusion that this was really the end in view! Hard does it seem that when a people only aek of its government to be permitted to pursue the obvious and straightforward road to prosperi ty, it should be forbidden to proceed unless con senting to -wear the fetters and manacles with which that fostering governm...

To tfit Editor oftht ' Inquirer.' Sir, — In that luminous specimen of talent and accu racy which labours under the character of the Perth Ga zette, and in that No., thereof which struggled into the light on the 4th instant., a few of the public may chance to hare seen the following passages, referring, among others of equal truth and perspicuity to the festivities of the first of June ; ' carts, containing various supplies of meat and drink ; all nutritions In their way, but we suspect in some instances — on this as on most occasions of this kind— much abused, as the various Irish rows testified.' And again, ' some of the late imported Irishmen kept up tiie fair to their national persuasion, and of course a row ensued ; this was however soon put a stop to, and the usual termination ot'such meetings lost a portion of its customary variety.' Now we have first to discover the meaning of these ad mirably spelt and moBt witty passages ; end however dif ficult it may be to comprehend what...

CUNNINGHAM'S HINTS FOR AUSTRALIAN EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 June 1842

CUNNINGHAM'S HINTS FOR AUSTRALIAN EMIGRANTS. Australian Grasses. — The progressive deterioration of the North American postures by grazing has been long a matter of notoriety, and by many ascribed to the majori ty of the pusture-gmsses there being annuals, which were not reproduced, in consequence of the stock browsing pre venting their seeding:, to sow afresh the ground. A similar deterioration of pasture, from grazing, is observed in New South Wales ; and as both countries have similar dry cli mates, the deterioration of pustules in both is no doubt referable to the same cause. When grass has perfected its seed, the stem gradually dries up ; partly from exhaustion -h performing this pro cess, partly from the desiccation of the suu and wind, and partly from the return of a portion of the sap to the root*, whence it came, making this natural-made hay in a great measure devoid of flavour and uutntnent, and consequently refused by cattle, except when hunger severely presses. Thus, the...

CORRESPONDENCE. "To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 June 1842

CORRESPONDENCE. 'To the Editor of the "Inquirer." SIR, — I yesterday chanced to stumble over a stray No. of the Perth Gazette for Saturday last, in which I observe another letter fr0m that acute investigator 'C,' exhibiting all that profundity of thought and correct sentiment for which that writer is so remarkable. I am myself rather un- fortunately situated as regards the Perth Gazette,   being compelled by adverse circumstances, to read that journal aloud to my grandmamma; and I thus became acquainted with things that, were I left to myself, would certainly never come within my knowledge. You, Mr. Editor, have no such respected relative with whom you find it necessary to curry favour, nor can I suppose that you have any other inducement stroing enough to tempt you to the perusal of the varied lore of the Gazette ; but I do conjure you by our friendship — by the respect that I know you have for the opinion of my aged relative, who in- sists that "C", must be Coleridge,...

THE ENQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22, 1842 [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 June 1842

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22, 1842 We last week made some observations on the bill to prevent the unauthorised occupation of Crown lands, with the view of showing that if any especial law was required on the subject at all, — which with us still remains a matter of con siderable doubt — liberal terms should at least be offered to those who seek the privilege which the bill proposes to confer. We this week return to the charge, although we miss our ' Andrew JCCllala iiyfiit uui diuc. We are inclined to look upon the unappropriat ed lands of the Crown, as little more than a wide common, to be grazed over at will by any holder of other land originally purchased from the Crown j but at any rate the payment for such permission to graze ought to be of a nearly nom inal sum, just sufficient in fact to acknowledge the right of property in the Crown, supposing it to have such right and no more. We take it that the Crown is only possessed of these lands as a sort of trustee for the public, and we, at a...
