MURDER OF JOHN GOFTOH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

MURDER OF JOHN GOFTON. ON Monday, information was received in town, that John Gofton, who escaped from gaol some weeks ago, had been found shot through the head, in the district of the Para River. For some days past, the police have been on the look out in that neighbourhood, having received information that some sus- picious characters were lurking about. Through the assistance of the natives, the police suc- ceeded in falling upon their tract, which they   followed until it entered a mangrove swamp, near the mouth of the Para. Here, after con- siderable searching, they came upon a miserable hut, in which was found the body of John Gofton, life having left the body, to all ap- pearance, only a short time previous. No fire arms of any description were found in the place, so that no circumstance could encourage the idea that he had committed suicide. On receiving the intelligence, the Coroner, accompanied by two of the jury—the distance being too great for the whole of t...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

SYDNEY. One news from Sydney is up to the 18th of June:— The [emancipists?] were passing to be heard by counsel respecting some of the clauses at the Municipal Bill. The New South Wales laws extension to New     Zealand had passed.   The flour and grain exemption from duty bill had passed. The Australian Auction Company sold 500       ewes at 9s each.   Accounts were received from New Zealand by     which it appears the township of Korariki was   last improving.   Mr Macarthur compained to the Council of     the conduct of the reporter of the Australian, by   whom he had been treated in a discourteous and         ungentlemanly way. The Governor said there was no motion before the Council. Mr Jones     said the sooner means were...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

PORT PHILLIP. WE have received papers from Melbourne, to the 27th June:— The Land mania is still raging, but the sheep racket is quiet at an end. Messrs Manton & Co. disposed of an allotment, leaving £5,500 profit; and one of the newspapers asks the question—       What will the Vandemonians say to this?—They         say it is a most exorbitant high price, and would be glad to know what the land could produce to make any return for such an outlay. We recom-     mend holders of allotments at Port Phillip to   sell them as soon as possible—turn into money     and come here to cultivate grain, for export there. The Herald has the following very neces- sary wants, which they are wihtout, vis:—a Supreme Court—Lighthouse and buoy pilots—       Port Office—Public Wharf—a Gaol (very neces- &...

VAN DIEMANS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

VAN DIEMANS LAND. THE CHARTIST RIOTERS.—The Mandarin con- vict ship has arrived, with Messrs Fros t & Co., on board. Our readers will recollect that Frost is the gentlemen who was one of the leaders of the Newport riots, being a borough magistrate—one         of Lord John Russell's own —that he was subse-       sequently with others, tried for high treason, and a point having been raised in his favor as the non- delivery of the list of witnesses to the prisoner             twelve days before the trial took place, the force     of which was, however, in a great measure over-   ruled by the majority of the judges deciding that   the objection should have been taken before he   pleaded; it was deemed advisable, under all the     circumstances to spare that life which had for- feited so many, and accordingly we find the hero of the inglorious days of Monmouth treading the   sh...

ENGLISH ENTRACTS. (Continued.) MIGRATION.— On Saturday (March 14), a pub- lic meeting was held at Nailsworth, for the pur- purpose of explaining the principles of emigration to South Australia, to the working classes of the district, when Mr Thistlewaite, of Holcomb House, was in the chair, by whom Mr W.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

VARIETIES. MOST MELANCHOLY.—A bachelor correspondent writes thus from one of the new cities south:—I am dying of ennui- indeed I am. The city is a desert; no business—no amusements—no any- thing—almost no nothing. I have seen but one —only one handsome woman here, and she had her defects. I haven't a single button on all my shirts ; and my thumbs are quite sore with trying to make pins do instead."— American Paper. A PLEASANT COURTSHIP.—William the Con- queror won the hand of his wife Matilda by   beating her. He had wooed her unsuccessfully for some years; and at last, becoming desperate,   he waylaid her in the streets of Bruges as she was returning from mass, seized her, rolled her in the dirt, spoiled her rich array, and, not content with these outrages, struck her repeatedly, and rode off at full speed. This Teutonic method of courtship brought the affair to a crisis; for Ma- tilda, either convinced of the strength of William's passion by the violence ...

THE WRECK AT ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

THE WRECK AT ENCOUNTER BAY. We have just received the following letter from Messrs Andrews and W. R. Cooke, and, in accordance with their suggestion, pub- lish a supplementary slip, being anxious that the public should be put in possession of every information as early as possible:—   To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Gentlemen—We have just seen a letter from the agent in Hobart Town of the brigantine Maria (which vessel left here on the 20th June for that port), and dated the 21st July, expressing anxiety for her safety, and desiring to know on what day she left this port. The passengers by this vessel, as far as we have been enabled to ascertain, agree with the accounts we have hitherto received concerning the wreck near Encounter Bay. We would suggest to you, in order to relieve the anxiety of parties at home, the propriety of publishing a Supplement to your paper, in time for the London Mails, by the Culdee, which we find is detained until Monday, som...

MISREPRESENTATIONS AT HOME. STATE OF LABOURING EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 August 1840

MISREPRESENTATIONS AT HOME. STATE OF LABOURING EMIGRANTS. I am, Your affectionate father, GILES ABBOTT. Adelaide, Aug. 9, 1839. We call particular attention to a correspon- dence which has taken place between the Chronicle, and the writer of a letter recently published in London, under the signature of Wm. Pratt, an industrious man, and one of the best mechanics in his line, in Adelaide. It is not necessary to do more than re-print the letters, with the comments of our contempo- rary, which place the whole affair in a very in- instructive and gratifying light. We add, how- ever, a letter from a person in a much more humble sphere of life than Pratt—that is, of a person totally illiterate, and in the rank of a common labourer— Giles Abbot—who, by patient industry aud good conduct, has arrived at the condition which, to our personal know- ledge, is correctly described in the following communication, written, at it bears, under Abbott's own direction, by My Moorehouse, Protector of the...

THE EMIGRATION DEPOT. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

THE EMIGRATION DEPOT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. fort to newly-arrived emigrants.—Yours, &c. A. B. C. Adelaide, August 5, 1840. GENTLEMEN-Having frequently paid a visit to the Emigration Depot upon the arrival of a vessel from our native shores, I have witnessed many a scene which I must say grieved me, because I conceive the evil I complain of might be very easily removed. To form a just estimate, however, of its amount, you must, if you please, imagine yoursclf in the depot in London or Plymouth, and there fix your eyes on a family just brought from a provincial town, where the agent had informed them they must be in London on a certain day, and would he provided for till the vessel sailed, and, of course, throughout the voyage, and that on their arrival they will be supplied with rations, and have a lodging for a short time, or, in other words, till they shall have obtained some employment. As the ship will not sail for a week, you see them every day...

MY DEAR SIR—I beg to enclose a copy of the report of our procedings up to the present date, for the persual of his Excellency the Governor.   By it his Excellency will percieve that the very inhospitable nature of the country around Lake Torrens, added to my anxiety to remove our horses from the depot near Mount Arden, where there was but very little grass for the, pre- vented my devoting so much time to the examina- tion of the lake and country around it as I should have wished; and I therefore intend, if possible, on my return, to investigate it more fully, being anxious to ascertain whether, as I suppose, there     is a considerable drainage into it from the west-   ward. The high land seen on its opposite side appears to be a continuation of the table land lying to the west of the head of Spencer's Gulf; and though the fall of the country appears to be to the north, I begin to be of opini...
