THE MUNICIPAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

THE MUNICIPAL BILL. THE Chronicle of Wednesday last, published at length the Adelaide Municipal Bill, with the amendments or alternations it has undergone in Council since its first publication in the Gazette. An attentive perusal of the measure, as now   proposed, enables us to say that a decided im- provement has been made in the machinery by which the system is to be commenced and wrought. With two exceptions, the measure is one which exhibits a decided liberal feeling on the part of the Government; and, modified on the points we shall proceed to notice, is likely to work efficiently and satisfactorily. The clauses to which serious, although we hoep not insurmountable, objections are enter- tained, are the following:—     X XXV. Provided always and be it enacted that all such bye laws and orders shall on being made and passed by the said common council in virtue       of the powers above conferred be im...

PRODUCTIVE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

PRODUCTIVE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THERE is a rather numerous class of persons in the world who will persist in babbling them- selves into scrapes, and when they undertake the protection of any unhappy friend, very generally reduce him to their own unenviable condition. Our contemporary of the Southern Australian is notoriously of this description, and has latterly taken into his sagacious noddle the strange freak of patronising Captain Sturt, or rather, an assertion of that gentleman's re- garding the productive capabilities of the pro- vince, about which, so far as it goes, stranger still, there is now no dispute! Captain Sturt's   original proposition on the point was in the following words:— "South Australia may reasonably be calculated to be sufficiently pro- ductive for the maintenance of a population of   200,000." To this calculation we excepted very distinctly, but so far as Captain Sturt was concerned, very respectfully. The Chronicle, kn...

FLOUR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

FLOUR MILLS. FOUR mouths have scarcely to elapse when under the blessing of Providence, nearly sixty thousands bushels of wheat will be produced in South Australia. Of this quantity about forty thousand bushels will be available for home consumption. It is with deep regret that we state that no preparations are at this moment in progress within the colony, to convert this large quantity of wheat into flour, and that, unless some means be speedily adopted to provide efficient flour mills, the grain must   be exported, and prepared for human food   elsewhere.   We refuse to doubt, in a case so urgent as this, that our colonists will fail to perceive the necessity of immediate action, and our confi- dence in their good sense is too firmly settled to doubt that a measure so intimately con- nected with the general weal, will fail to be carried through, even at this eleventh hour, with spirit and success. A public meeting, we observe, is to be held o...

MARKETS AT NOARLUNGA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

MARKETS AT NOARLUNGA. We have been favored, by the Manager of the South Australian Company, with the following notes regarding the establishment of regular markets at Noarlunga. Combined with these, we arc extremely gratified to observe that a series of prizes is to be awarded for the best specimens of produce &c, a system which has been productive of incalculable improvements in the mother country, and which we hope to see supported here, now that a commencement is about to be made :— " A space of about two acres reserved as a market-place, is to be enclosed at the Com- pany's expence, and subdivided so as to form pens for horses, sheep, produce, &c. Markets are to be held once a fortnight, or once a week, as may be found advisable- Friday being the day proposed for the market. The Company will send cattle and sheep, so as to establish a market at first. A fair, proposed to be held once or twice a year, at which premiums will be awarded to those who shall bring for ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

PORT ADELAIDE, JULY 23RD, 1840.—A man of the name of Philip Charlton, in the har- bour master's department, met with an accident in firing off a musket, in which his hand was               so much shattered that amputation was necessary. By the prompt attention of Dr Stoddart of the Culdee, and Dr Fletcher of the Dauntless, in less than half an hour after the accident, the arm was amputated below the elbow, without the slightest appearance of pain to the patient, both of the gentlemen refusing to accept any remuneration for   their services. It is gratifying to see such ex- amples of kindness and good feeling introduced amongst us by strangers who are about to leave us and take up their abode in a distant country, perhaps never again to see each other. At Charlton's request we publish the following letter:— To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Port Adelaide, August 6. ...

THE LATE INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

THE LATE INQUEST. the inquest.—I am, &c. HENRY CALTON. Club House, August 6, 1840. The Southern Australian no doubt thought he had got a fine hit at us when he insinuated that we had been obliged to him for our ac- count of the late inquest on the body of Gofton. The Editor is, however, on this as on most other subjects, quite out of his reckoning. We certainly did see a page of the Southern Aus- tralian headed "Inquest, &c.," but we have   not as yet found time to peruse it. We could not therefore be indebted to it for "a column   and a half of news." Lest, however, any doubt should remain on Mr Editor's mind, we annex a note from Mr Calton, one of the jury,   who kindly furnished us with the "column and   a half " which the Southern Australian was inclined to look upon as his property :— To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—Perceiving that the editor of the Southern Australian accuses you of bor- rowing, ...

PROCEEDINGS OF THE COUNCIL. Friday, July 31, 1840. The Council met at 10 o'clock.   The Art to constitute a Municipal Corporation for the City of Adelaide was brought up in an amended state and considered. Adjourned. Tuesday, August 4, 1840. The Council met at 10 o'clock. The bill to constitute a Municipal Corporation for the City of Adelaide was again brought for- ward and further discussed. In pursuance of a notice published in the South Australian Gazette, dated 23rd Octobor, 1839, His Excellency announced his intention to bring before the Council at an early period a bill to prohibit the distillation of spirits in the province. Adjourned.

GLENELG. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

GLENELG. I have the honor to be, &c., A. M. MUNDY. Private Secretary. To O. Gilles, Esq. H. R. Wigley, Esq and the other Proprietors of Glenelg. The following most proper letter has been addressed by order of His Excellency the Governor to the shareholders and parties inter- ested in the proposed pier at Glenelg. We must say that the most unaccountable supine- ness has been allowed in this important under- taking. Independent of something, which appears like disrespect — unintentional, we believe—to the Governor, it astonishes us ex- ceedingly that an undertaking so certain to prove lucrative to the proprietors, and so bene- ficial to the public, should not be proceeded with. It is to be hoped that His Excellency's admonition will be attended to, ere the oppor- tunity of doing so be lost: Private Secretary's Office, 5th August, 1840. GENTLEMEN—I am desired by the Governor to represent to you, that His Excellency must con- sider that when the proprietors or direcotrs of any p...

THE LAST GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

THE LAST GAZETTE. THE GOVERNOR has been pleased to allow that the portion of the park hands situated on the site of, and immediately to the eastward of the old Botanic Garden, may be used as a public stock market, from three o'clock on every Tuesday afternoon, until eight o'clock on the ensuing Thursday morn- ing. Stock holders who will avail themselves of this privilege, will become chargeable after a scale which shall be published in the Gazette, with moderate dues to cover the expenses of cleansing and regulation. The city public slaughter-house, about to be authorised under the cattle slaughter- ing act, and one of the public pounds required by the impounding act now before the council, will   be placed in the same neighbourhood, at conveni- ent distances from the markets. Stock proceeding to, or returning form the market, must not be driven along the terraces or park lands between North and South Adelaide, or through any of the streets of the city. As the question ...

SUPREME COURT-CIVIL SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

SUPREME COURT.—CIVIL SIDE. MONDAY, AUG. 3.—The Civil Sittings of the   Supreme Court commenced this morning. The only case of importance was that of G. S. Kingston, Esq. against D. McLaren, Esq., as Manager of the South Australian Company. This was an action brought by the plaintiff to recover a sum of money for services rendered to the South Australian Company in engineering, sur-   veying, &c. The plea set up by the defendant, was that the account was overcharged. Counsel on both sides was heard on the motion to shew cause why the pleas filed by the defen-   dant should not be amended. His Honor ulti- mately decided agaisnt the motion. A jury was then sworn in, but there being nothing of importance before the Court, an ad- journment took place until next morning. TUESDAY.—The pleas in the case of G. S. Kingston, Esq. v. D. McLaren, Esq., Manager of the South Australian Company, were withdrawn —a reference to the Hon. the Surveyor Gene...

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM SYDNEY AND NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM SYDNEY AND NEW ZEALAND. WILLIAM HOPSON, Lieutenant Governor. SINCE our last page went to press, we have recived news from Sydney by way of Port Phillip, to the 11th July, and from New Zea- land to the 16th June. At Sydney, numerous vessels had arrived from England; and two from Valparaiso, each having on board 10,000 bushels of wheat. This as will be seen by our extracts below, has had the effect of reducing prices very considerably. One of the Valparaiso vessels was seized by the customs officer for showing British colors, being a foreign bottom. In consequence, the vessel and cargo, valued at £10,000, were to   be sold for the benefit of the customs, as will be seen by an extract from the Australian. The following extracts are principally from the Sydney correspondent of the Port Phillip Herald. The letters are dated July 7th and 11th.— English news to the 2nd April has been receiv- ed. There had been no particular news. Wool was quite up to the Oc...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

PORT PHILLIP. BY the Joshua Carroll we have received Mel- bourne papers to the 24th July, inclusive. We have only room for one or two extracts. STEAM AT LAST!—By the overland mail yes- terday, Captain Roach has received advices from Sydney, from Mr Eyre Manning, stating that a fine steamer named the Clonmel, measuring up- wards of 500 tons and of 250 horse power, has been purchased by mr Manning and another gentleman, for the purpose of plying between Sydney and Port Phillips, or Port Phillip, and Launceston, as Captain Roach, who has been requested to act as agent for the Clonmel, may advise. The Clonmel was to leave London for Sydney on the 1st May last, and may therefore be shortly expected. The owners have already advised Captain Roach of their having shipped 209 tons of coal to William's Town, to his address, to be in readiness for the steamer on her arrival here. If we don't go a head now it's a pity!   EMIGRANTS —By the arrival of Theresa, we have received a free...

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

THE TOWN CLOCK. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. as well as X. Y. Z. August 5th, 1840. GENTLEMEN—Perhaps you can inform me what is the reason that a very splendid clock presented by the Board of Ordnance to the late Commissioners for South Australia, and now ornamenting the steeple of Trinity Church, is so long permitted to remain in a sound   sleep. I cannot believe that the inhabitants of Adelaide are unwilling to pay the sum neces- sary to set it and keep it going, and surely there are persons quite competent to do it.   There must be some cause, however, and I believe every one would wish it were removed

NEW ZEALAND AND PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

NEW ZEALAND AND PORT PHILLIP. WE beg to direct particular attention to the following letter addressd to a gentleman in Adelaide by a friend, who not very long ago proceeded to New Zealand. We can vouch for the respectability of the writer, and that he truly and faithfully represents what he ob-   served :— Thames, New Zealand, Corromandel Harbour, 3rd April, 1840. I am afraid that you will, long ere this time,   have consigned my name to your list of unfaithful correspondents; but undeservedly, I can assure     you, for hitherto, I have had neighter facilities for writing, nor information about the country at all definite enough to be of any use to you; nor, in- deed can I promise you such even now; but hav-   ing at this moment a little leisure time, I employ   it in this way, more for the purpose of shewing   you that I have not forgotten my promise than for the little information I am able to communi- c...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

NEW ZEALAND. WE have received new Zealand Gazette to the 16th May, but, like the first two numbers, they are almost barren of any thing like news. Two or three papers are half filled with an account of a journey taken by a Mr Wakefield into a " part of country before un- known," and which, from any account he gives of it, might remain unknown till the day of Pentecost, as he does not even tell the course he took when he started, or whether he journeyed east, west, north, or south. The only description he gives of the country is to be found in his accounts of visiting native vil- lages and eating roasted potatoes, crossing rivers and sand-hills, climbing mountains, and laying soaking in wet blankets—a very comfortable mode of passing the night ac- cording to his account. The question of titles to land appears to become every day more vexed in consequence of the vacillating conduct pursued by the Home Government. The Gazette, which is edited by Mr Revans (of Canada notoriety), is the ...

SYLNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

SYDNEY. TO-DAY we cull a few extracts from our Sydney files, received by the Christina, which extend to the 22nd June. The following is Sir George Gipps's state- ment to the legislative Council regarding the revenue of the Colony :— The Governor said he would lay before the Council one of the usual annual papers, an ab- stract of the revenue of the colony for the year 1839, with the appropriation thereof. He would make a few observations with respect to this account, which might be considered premature did they not bear upon the subject of the bill which he was about to introduce. Members must not be misled by the gross amount of either the revenue or expenditure, for upon going through   the account, it would be found that there were a number of items on both sides of it. He would give on instance. The money paid for the wheat imported, £34,000, is charged in the account, while the grater part of it has already been re-   turned, and will appear in the acc...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 August 1840

VARIETIES. CHARACTOR OF THE CANADAS.—The action of the climate upon agricultural productions is more   favourable in these countries than in other which   have the same mean temperature. The intense heat even of the short summer ripens corn and   fruits which will not thrive in regions where the same warmth is more equally distributed through- out the year. The upper province nearly coin-     cides with the north of England; yet the grape, the peach, and the melon come to as much per- fection as in their native soil. Even rice is found growing wild. The only difficulty is found with   such agricultural productions as, under milder   skies, are improved by wintering in the soil. Autumn wheat, for example, has not yet succeeded in Lower Canada; and several of the more delicate artificial grasses have failed. The farmer likewise   suffers inconvenience from the short interval in whic...

WE received the following letter at too late an hour yesterday to enable us to do more than hand it to the printer. We therefore give Mr Moorhouse the benefit, for the present, of the case he has made out, without remark, further than to say that while we adhere to the opinion expressed by us in our last, we never intended to deny to the Protector and to our most worthy friends, the Missionaries, the merit of having laboured zealously and faithfully in their respective vocations:— To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—In the last number of the Register you in the leading article, after speaking   of the "Protector and the Missionaries," assert   without any qualification distinctly and deli- berately —" that nothing comparatively has yet been done—that the natives have hitherto ac-   quired nothing of European civilization, but E...
