The South Australian Register, ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1840. PROGRESS OF THE COLONY-FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 1840. [THIRD AND CONCLUDING NOTICE.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

The South Australian Register, ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1840. PROGRESS OF THE COLONY-FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 1840. [THIRD AND CONCLUDING NOTICE.] IT was remarked to us the other day by a gentleman recently returned to the province from England that the amazing increase in the population and appearance of Adelaide did not surprise him so much as the progress that had been made in the settlement of the country surrounding it. During a single day's ride to visit a section selected by him at a distance of twenty miles from town, he no longer traversed the unoccupied desert of eighteen months ago, but was conducted to his property by well-defined roads, and through a country exhibiting all the bustle and life of agricultural operations. At that period the   surveyed lands were scarcely open for settlers, and population in the interior save here and there the solitary sheep station of an adven- turous bush-man, there was none. Now, substantial farm-houses on all sides, comple...

WEEKLY MARKETS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

WEEKLY MARKETS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—I feel obliged by the insertion in your journal, of my letter on the subject of a weekly market at Adelaide, and I feel as- sured that the colonists will prize your exer- tions in following up the matter with so much zeal and promptitude. This would have left me nothing further to say on the subject, were were it not for the day of the week, which I am, Yours, &c., B. P. the inhabitants of Adelaide seem to consider as the most fitting for the market. Allow me therefore, before it be too late, to urge what appears to me to be grave rersons why Saturday ought not to be the day selected— 1st. As regards the interests of the mer- chants and shopkeepers of Adelaide. 2nd. As regards the interests and conveni- ence of the country settlers. 3rd. As regards the interests of the colony at large. First—As regards the interests of the mer- chants and shopkeepers of Adelaide:— It must be quite evident upon a littl...

RAILWAY TO THE PORT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

RAILWAY TO THE PORT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I remain, &c., J. WILSON. GENTLEMEN —The necesity of a railway between Adelaide and the Port (which is ob- vious to every person) induces me to lay before you a few remarks on the practicability, or rather wase, with which it might be accomplished. Having a knowledge of such works, I passed over the ground to see what obstacles might be in the way, but found that, wilhout a curve or excavation, it may run from either the old port or the new, in a line direct to South Ade- laide. The old port road is the course I would recommend, as both ports may be included at a less expence than if brought direct from the new; simply, because the pound for the former may be granted by government, but that for the latter must be purchased from private parties.   The road to Port Adelaide (as marked by the surveyor) is 220 feet wide:—Suppose 30 feet be marked off one side, for the accomme- dation of the sectio...

LIVERPOOL WOOL SALES. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

LIVERPOOL WOOL SALES. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) ON Friday, the 20th March, there were brought to public sale, 1,468 bales of Australian, and 85 bales Tasmanian and Port Phillip Wool; also about 2,000 bales of various descriptions, comprising Spanish, Portuguese, East Indian, Persian, Zegal, Turkish, Mogadoro, Italian, &c. There was a fair attendance of buyers, and, considering the depressed state of trade in the manufacturing districts, the sales effected were at rates fully equal to the expectations of the settlers. The first sale consisted of 1315 bales Australian, 74 bales Tasmanian, and 11 bales Port Phillip, sold by Buchanan & Browne, and which brought as under, viz :— AUSTRALIAN. s. d. s. d. 108 bales good and fine clothing } sorts, with a few firm clothing} 1 11 to 2 3½ lots}   494 bales coarse combing, and } 1 8 1 10½ fair to good clothing }   478 common clothing & lambs 1 6 1 5½ 130 refuse locks and pieces .... 1 2 1 7½ ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. WE have received only two papers, both Ho- bart Town ones, by the Essex. We are gratified in being enabled to announce a considerable reduction in the prices of grain and flour in the neighbouring colony. Our papers are dated the 12th and 16th ult., at which time wheat had fallen 5s. a bushel, while, from the promising state of the weather and crops, a further fall was daily expected.   We give a few extracts:— BREAD AND FLOUR COMPANY.—We are in-   formed that the formation of a Bread and Flour Company is projected, in order to obviate the high price of flour, compared with that of wheat, as kept up by the millers. We predict certain success to the proprietors, as every plan that tends to cheapen the necessaries of life, deserves   the warmest support and encouragement; and we shall have great pleasure in announcing its es- tablishment, in the columns of this Journal. The Season.—We hear, from all parts, that the present seas...

[EXTRACTS CONTINUED.] A new company called " The British Colonial Bank and Loan Company," with a capital of £1,000,000, in 25,000 shares, has been formed in London, principally for the purpose of supplying the colonies of Australasia with capital, in terms of the following extract from the deed of settle- ment:—" Lending such money in such colonies and places, at interest, on the security of lands, as well freeholds as leaseholds, and also the lend- ing such money on the deposit of deeds or docu- ments of title, and on the security of goods, wares, or merchandize of persuns resident in such colon ies and places, and on the personal security of persons resident in such colonies and places, and also the lending money at interest on the security of goods, wares, and merchandize, property, and   securities of persons residing in such colonies and places, and also the acting as agents for the sale of such goods, wares, and merchandize, property and securities, ...

SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SIDE. Saturday, July 11. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. Saturday, July 11. In John Jones's case, has Honor over -ruled the objection taken by the coused for the defence, and sentenced the prisoner to seven years' trans- portation. JOHN HORNABROOK, a respectable-looking young man, lately in the employ of Mr Peacock,   then appeared at the bar charged with uttering a forged promissory note for £5, at the Tas-   manian Hotel, on the 27th of June. It appeared from the evidence that the prisoner     tendered a note purporting to be a five pound note of the Bank of South Australia, and had it changed at Mr Wheland's ; but on examination, it was found to be only a one pound note, with as much of a five pound note of some other bank pasted on it as to make it have the appearance of a five pound note. In the prisoner's pocket, when apprehended, part of a five pound note of a bank which does not now exist was found, and the pieces which were pasted on the one pound no...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

VARIETIES. SAFE TO BE TAKEN CARE OF.—A lady who re- sides in the rue St. Lazare, says the Journal du Notariat, has made a will, bequeathing at her death     10.000f., viz. 3,000f to her grocer, 3000f. to her steward, and 4,000f. to two of her oldest servants, during the life-time of her dog, on condition of     her favourite being clothed, fed, and attended upon like a human being. "The dear Bibi," says this journal, "is dressed like a great personage has a warm apartment, rides out in a carriage and deigns occasionally to show himself on the   balcony of the house when his physician allows him to take the air!" Two ladies were seated in front of a box at the   Theatre de la Gaite, a few evenings ago, and had thrown a boa across the cushion before them, when a young man, of fashionable appearance' entered, and placed himself on the seat behind. Hi got into conversation with them, and at length begged permi...

BANKRUPT AND INSOLVENT LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

BANKRUPT AND INSOLVENT LAWS. IN all countries which been risen to com- mercial eminence, it has been found essential to encourage and give every legitimatic facility to the grand mainspring of mercantile opera- tions— credit—by guarding with extreme care against its abuse, and by protecting the trusting party in all cases, as far as possible, against the consequences alike of fraud or misfortune To accomplish these ends, the bankrupt and   insolvent laws of the commercial nations of Europe have been framed, and, in the best regulated states, more effectually to secure the requisite confidence between buyers and sellers, completed transactions, when they assume the form of bills of exchange, enjoy peculiar privileges calculated to render the existance of the debt indisputable, and the enforcement of payment a matter of com- parative ease and expedition. We merely allude to these general and well- known points which it is unncecessary here to dwell upon, for the purpose o...

LITERARY & SCIENTIFIC ASSOCIATION. AND MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 July 1840

LITERARY & SCIENTIFIC ASSOCIATION AND MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. At the annual meeting of the Adelaide Li- terary and Scientific Association and Me- chanics' Institute, CHARLES MANN, Esq., in the chair, the following report was received from the committee :—   Among the varied and important duties that press upon a new community in its first efforts to plant in the wilderness the arts and civilization of Britain, the support of those Institutions is the most urgent that aim at the culture of the intellect. The first projectors of South Australia colo- nization formed in London a Literary and Scientific Association, and many opulent and liberal indi- viduals enriched it by donations of books. On the first arrival of the colonists, a Mechanics' Institute sprung into existence, and a course of lectures was delivered before it in the winter of 1838. It was considered that two Institutions—the Mechanics', and the Literary and Scientific As- sociation, having objects preci...
