The South Australian Register, ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1840. DINNER TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. ON Wednesday last, the OFFICERS of the Adelaide Brigade of South Australian Militia entertained His Excellency the Governor, to dinner, at the Club House. Major O'Halloran commanding the Brigade, presided ; Captain Finniss offficiated as vice-president. A select party, chiefly the civil officers of the Govern-   ment, was invited to meet His Excellency.   The room, where the banquet was provided,   was fitted up with exceeding taste. A well executed transparency, with the Royal Arms,   was exhibited over the President's chair, while another at the lower end of the room, recorded the victories in which His Excellency had shared. It bore the names of Salamanca, Badajaz, Vittoria, Vera, Nivelle, Nive, Ortacs, Toulouse, and that of the crowning   field Waterloo. The transparency was sur- mounted by the initials of the G...

PRODUCTIVE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 July 1840

PRODUCTIVE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. IN persuing a lecture recently delivered at the Adelaide Institute, on the geology of the province, by Capt Sturt, we were exccedingly astonished by the following paragraph•— Regarding South Australia in a geological point of view, I believe it may be safely stated, that   there are few countries, of equal extent, with more available soil on its surface. It may reasonably be calculated to be sufficiently productive for the maintenance of a population of 200,000 souls; and it has an apparent advantage in the regularity of its seasons, which is extremely favourable to the   agriculturist. The Chronicle of Wednesday last, we ob- serve, treats the number of 200,000, men- tioned in the above quotation, as a misprint for two millions, and calculates the productive power of the known portion of the colony at six millions. Our contemporary states that about one-half of the colony is known. In this he is about as much out ...

THE VOLUNTARY PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 July 1840

THE VOLUNTARY PRINCIPLE. IN the statistical article in our last we ob- served that the power given by the South Australian Act to appoint chaplains of the estabilshed Churches of England and Scotland, seemed to contemplate public support, to a certain extent, of clergymen of these denomi- nations. At the moment we made the above remark we overlooked the circumstance that, in the Amended Act, 1st and 2nd Victoria, c. 60. (July 31, 1838), the power to appoint   chaplains or clergymen was repealed. In point of fact, an application by the Commission of the General Assembly of the Kirk of Scot- land to Lord John Russell, for the appoint- ment and endowment of a chaplain of that body, has lately been refused, and the refusal grounded on that withdrawal of the power to appoint. The General Assembly had there- fore determined to send out their clergyman with a suitable provision from the funds at their disposal. It thus appears that the Voluntary Principle is to be given a fair...

MERCANTILE REOBITY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 July 1840

MERCANTILE PROBITY. NOTWITHSTANDING the late unhappy illustra- tions of a deficiency in the invaluable quality which we place at the head of this notice, it is truly gratifying to know that the numerous body of our merchants are not only altogether free from the taint, but are in a position which renders it impossible to doubt that they are certain to maintain the high character they have hitherto so well earned. We have the best authority in the province for stating, that at no former period of our colonial existence, were its monetary or commercial transactions on a better or more healthy footing. The two failures that have occurred, are to be traced to causes in no degree connected with the com- mercial progress of the colony, but may be found in circumstances which are strictly per- sonal. We have no wish to be more particular in out allusions, and we shall not be so, unless higher interests compel us. In the mean time, and while on this subject, we may be permitted &nbs...

DEMAND FOR LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 July 1840

DEMAND FOR LABOUR. If the journalists of Van Diemen's Land, whose odd and extravagant jealousy of South Australia, leads them to the publication of any fiction that they may deem injurious to its pros- perity, be not utterly past blushing, we think the facts we have lately had the satisfaction of submitting to the public must render our can- did contemporaries, if not positively ashamed of their dishonest falsehoods, at least somewhat uncomfortable under the very complete ex- posure we have been enabled to make of them. One of their pet figments, especially—the des- titution of our emigrants and the lack of demand for labour—their "begging and praying by scores the captains" of Van Diemen's Land trading craft to remove them from this place of sin and misery and starvation, to the modern paradise of Van Diemen's Land, where crime is unknown, and where the whip and lash and chain-gang are unheard and unseen, it is, happily, within our power to refute by figures, which no editorial log...

IMPORTATION OF FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 July 1840

IMPORTATION OF FLOUR. THE following, which we take from one of the latest Sydney papers, contains the announce- ment of a measure which we should gladly desire, to learn had been followed either by our own spirited merchants in Adelaide, or by the friends of the colony in England. It is quite clear that till the crop of 1842 is gathered— that is, till early in 1842—good sound flour from America will be an article in full demand in South Australia, and consequently of safe and profitable investment. A hint on such a subject, we hope, is sufficient. The sooner we are independent of the grain-sharks of Van Diemen's Land the better :— FLOUR FROM THE UNITED STATES.— We learn that those wealthy settlers, the Messrs Scott, of Glendon, Hunter's River, have sent to the United States of America for 10,000 barrels of flour; and, seeing the probable necessities of the sheep and cattle holders on the Hunter for the " staff of life," those gentlemen are about to instruct their agents to follow up...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 July 1840

PORT PHILLIP. WE have received Melbourne papers to the 15th June. An outline of a journey into the interior, and one or two paragraphs are all we can find worth extracting. The Port Phillip settlers seem very discon- tented with their situation. Public meetings to complain of grievances are of almost weekly occurrence. One of the latest was to petition for an Independent Government, and another for the establishmen of Courts of Law. No arrivals from England. WRECK.—We regret to learn that there is every   reason to fear that some large vessel has been lost in the Straits, great quantities of cedar having been washed on shore at the Heads. It is rumoured that the unfortunate vessel was the Emma from Sydney, but after diligent enquiry we cannot find any foundation for such a report. We would advise our Adelaide neighbours to be cautious in their purchase of cattle, as this   predatory system is at present carried on in our province to a great extent. THE BLAC...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. BY the Mary we have received Launceston and Hobart Town papers to the 20th ult. As usual there is searcely anything in them worth extracting. The fall in the price of grain, &c. and the anticipated further reduction are confirmed.   The market prices will be found elsewhere.     We subjoin the only paragraphs which are likely to be of any interest.—   Whatever experience the practical and extensive breeder of sheep may possess, or the new dis- coveries he may have had in the rearing of sheep,   will not, we should hope, lessen in the least   degree, our good for the public weal. We are all well aware that there are many youths, or   rather young men we should say, who have lately,   or are about catering upon extensive sheep runs, on their own account; such information as we are enabled to obtain upon the subject, we trust     &...
