ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 June 1839
ENGLISH NEWS. BY the Hooghly, which left England on the 18th Feb., we have English papers to the 16th of that month. Parliament was opened on the 5th Feb. when the following speech was read by Her Majesty in person :— My Lords and Gentlemen - I rejoice to meet you again in Parliament. I am particularly desi- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; rous of recurring to your advice and assistance at a period when many matters of great importance &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; demand your serious and deliberate attention. &nbsp; I continue to receive from Foreign Powers gratifying assurances of their desire to maintain with us the most friendly relations. I have concluded with the Emperor of Austria a treaty of commerce, which I trust will extend and improve the intercourse between my subjects and those of the Emperor. I have also concluded a treaty of the same kind with the Sultan, calcu- lated to place the commercial rela...

LIGHT-SQUARE ASSEMBLY ROOMS, &nbsp; WEYMOUTH STREET, &nbsp; (Near the Gilles Arcade.) — *+*— To the South Australian Public. &nbsp; ACCUSTOMED as we have been in "merry old England " to mingle toils of the &nbsp; more serious duties of life with innocent and rational amusement, we have long felt that in South Australia something was wanting to the social state, and that, in the absence of the necessary means of relaxation we are found in every ci- &nbsp; vilized country, we have been compelled to kill time by any means we could, and frequently in a manner at once vicious and unsatisfactory. Hitherto, in South Australia, Assembly Rooms, "conducted with decorum," have scarcely existed, but this desideratum Mr. PORTRURY hopes to sup- ply ; he has erected, in a central part of Adelaide, most spacious and convenient Rooms— has en- gaged the best Orchestra the province affords, and every care will be taken to ensure the respectabi- lity of the visit...
SIX MONTHS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 June 1839
SIX MONTHS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA —BY T. HORTON JAMES, ESQ. WE have been favored through the kindness of a passenger by the Sir Charles Forbes with a copy of this volume; and in the belief that most of our readers who remember the author himself and his sojourn at the Southern Cross desire to know what "it is all about," we present them with as many extracts as our space permits. Of the manner in which Mr. James has executed his task, we cannot speak in very favorable terms. In a literary point of view, it is far below mediocrity. Diffuse, in- &nbsp; distinct, and slip-sloppy, he rambles from one subject to another, as the thought or subject seems to strike him. In one sentence, he carries us to New South Wales—in the next to Swan River—and, on turning over the leaf, we find &nbsp; him either at sea or in Van Diemen's Land, or at dinner on "baked mutton" at the Southern &nbsp; Cross Hotel in Adelaide. Arrangement or method—and what is probably worse than all, car...

EXTRACTS. FISHING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.— The king stood erect in his bark canoe, while nine young men, with short spears, went up the river, and as many down the river, until, at a signal from him, they all dived into it, and returned towards him, &nbsp; alternately swimming and diving ; these divers transfixing the fish under water, and throwing them on the bank. Others on the river brink speared the fish, when thus enclosed, as they ap- peared among the weeds. In this manner they speared, with astonishing dispatch, some enormous &nbsp; &nbsp; rod (Peel's perch); but the largest were stuck by the chief from his canoe, with a long barbed spear. The death of the fish, in their practised hands, was almost instantaneous, and caused by merely holding them by the tail with the gills im- mersed.—Major Mitchell's Expedition into the in- &nbsp; terior of South Australia. A SINGULAR EXPERIMENT.—One of the most re- markable and inexplicable experiments relative t...

"BANKRUPTCY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 June 1839
"BANKRUPTCY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA." THE busy, thriving, industrious, wealthy popu- &nbsp; lation of South Australia will be delighted to learn not merely that a fiat of bankruptcy has recently been struck against them by the Editor of the Port Phillip Gazette, but that there is, according to that candid gentleman's story, ex- ceedingly small chance of a respectable dividend. It is nothing that our colonists are daily sending thousands of pounds to the Port Phillip district, and purchasing, for ready cash, the herds and flocks of "Australia the Blessed" —nothing that cargo after cargo is arriving from Great Britain, the continent of Europe, the neighbour- ing colonies, and finding ready sale for cash— that ship after ship is bringing capitalists and emigrants, and money and goods to our shores —that during the last six months the actual residents of this beggarly colony have expended ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS ON LAND ALONE — these, and fifty other insignificant facts which cou...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1839. TO OUR READERS. WHEN the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register were established and first published by us in London, the junction and independence of the official and non-official portions of our paper were explained in the following terms:-- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "As the official acts and orders of the Colonial Government will be published in &nbsp; this Journal, that portion of the paper containing these acts and orders will be called the Gazette. This circumstance renders it proper to state here, and once for all, that the Gazette alone is to be considered as recording the official acts and orders of &nbsp; the Colonial Government. The Register being devoted to the elucidation of the principles of colonization, to the record of the establishment and progress of the colony, and the general news of the place and of the day, i...

REPORT on the Country adj[?]ining Port Lincein. Adelaide June 19. 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 June 1839
REPORT on the Country adjoining Port Lincoln. Adelaide, June 19, 1839. By THOMAS ALLEN, F.L.S. late Chief Gardener to His Majesty William the Fourth at Kew. &nbsp; Sir— Agreeably to your request before I left Adelaide, I take leave to communicate on the subject of Port Lincoln harbour and its vicinities, and more especially Boston Bay, which has come under my observation on board the brig Dorset, &nbsp; which sailed from Holdfast Bay on the 23d May, at 7 p.m., with a fine breeze, and land in view all the way to Port Lincoln. We arrived at Boston Bay at 3 p.m. on the 25th, cast anchor in three fathoms water a quarter of a mile from the shore opposite Happy Valley, passing within twenty &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; yards of Curtain Point in seven fathoms water. The access to the harbour is very easy and safe for ships to enter at all times, from all entrances situated at the South and North sides of Boston Island, the latter about five miles extent, whi...

SUPPLY OF FLOUR[?] [?] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839
SUPPLY OF FLOUR—PROTECTION AGAINST SCARCITY. WE have great pleasure in announcing that during the last fornight a large supply of flour has been imported; and that from the purchases made by our merchants and others of this article, there is little reason now to fear a scarcity. The recent abundant rains which &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; have no doubt extended to New South Wales, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; are calculated to relieve us from the appre- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; hensions of a failure in the next year's crop of &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; that colony; and we indulge the hope that the worst is past. &nbsp; &nbsp; [?] events, it cannot but be consolatory to the colonists generally, the humbler classes [?] particularly to be made ac- quainted with a fact, which can now with &n...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839
TO CORRESPONDENTS. We thank W. M. for his information, it may be useful in due time. The letter of Homanitas is sheer nonsense. There is no fear of the natives, and if there were the plan suggested by a Correspondent &nbsp; who adopts the appropriate signature of———would &nbsp; not dispel them. There are too many pap-spoon philan- &nbsp; thropists in the colony already, and we cannot in con- science encourage the race by the publication of the puling trash ——— has sent us. Various letters received too late for insertion in this number shall &nbsp; appear in our next. "The Survey," and an article &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; in the "Progress of the Colony," in type, must stand &nbsp; over for another week. If our friend N. B. will favor us with a copy of Mr. Field's letter we shall willingly &nbsp; publish it. The cost of watering H.M.S. Buffalo, &nbsp; was about 1ool.—not 400l, as stated by Mr. James.
