LOSS OF THE MARIA, AND MASSSACRE OF PART OF HER CREW AND PASSENGERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

LOSS OF THE MARIA, AND MASSSA- CRE OF PART OF HER CREW AND PASSENGERS. It is now our melancholy duty to set the pub-   lic anxiety at rest with regard to the shipwreek on the southern coast, which has been the absorbing topic for the last fortnight. The week before last we ventured an opinion that the vessel reported to be lost was the Maria   brigantine, of Hobart Town, bound from Port Adelaide to that place. The facts which have come to light during the last two or three days have proved that the opinion we then expressed was but too correct. The vessel lost is the Maria. This fact has been ascertained by means of the rings found on the fingers of the bodies of the two females, and brought to Adelaide by Mr Pullen. These have been identified by   the relatives of the deceased as having belonged   to Mrs Denham and Mrs York, both of whom were passengers by the Maria. The whole of the passengers by the vessel   were: -...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY,AUGUST 15,1840. THE FENCING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 15,1840. THE FENCING ACT. Our readers will find, in another column, the bill just submitted by the Government to the Legislative Council on the important subject of Fencing or inclosing land.   This measure, in our view, has been framed in a manner to do justice to all parties and to all interests. In its practical operation, it will be found of very great advantage, and do much to encourage co-terminous propietors to pro- ceed with the erection of mutual fences on a fair and right footing. The principle of the act, indeed, is to avoid compulsory fencing. It forces no one to in- cur an expence which he deems inexpedient or which he cannot afford; and so long as he   makes no beneficial use of his neighbour's fence, he is not required to pay any share of the cost of its erection. But the moment he avails himself of such fence, by proceeding with the enclosure of other parts of his adjoining property—t...

THE SCAB IN SHEEP ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

THE SCAB IN SHEEP ACT. We are not in general friendly to hasty legis- lation, but the bill we publish to-day for pre- venting the spread of the scab among our flocks, is of such urgency and importance that we earnestly trust it will at once pass into a law. A flock of sheep in a miserable state of disease from scab has, for some weeks past, been allowed to run unmolested on the Park Land of North Adelaide, and the consequence is that, at present and for some time to come, sheep brought from our healthy pastures to   market, are endangered, and none can be safely sent back to their former runs if unsold. An extensive proprietor of sheep, for instance, the other day brought in a dozen of fine merino rams; and as they have been driven over the Park land, it would be unsafe to send them to any flock till their freedom from infection be ascertained. Great loss is thus incurred and much mischief done to sheep owners and to the public, which the proposed act will go far to mit...

PRODUCTIVE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

PRODUCTIVE CAPABILITIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The hour was an unlucky one, certainly, when the Southern Australian, forsaking his   well-trodden mill-path, suffered himself to be allured from the safe flat of harmless stupidity into the more dangerous region of wit. The effort was not an ambitious one we allow, and be may have relied on the wires being pulled and his antics directed by some more practised hand; but the failure was decided. Truth compels us to declare, that our poor brother makes a very indifferent Punch. His fun is in no degree the fun of the gay chattering clever mountebank; it has the dirt and indecency of that celebrated character, but no spark of his   humour; it is "the melancholy of Moorditch   with the drone of the Lincolnshire bag-pipe."   Jokes and similies stolen from Bartholemew   fair, evidently do not improve in South Aus- tralia, even though rubbed up in our contem- porary's mint, and re-ut...

FLOUR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

FLOUR MILLS. The state of the weather prevented the meet-   ing announced in our last, as intended to be held for the purpose of considering the pro-   priety of erecting public flour mills. We are glad, however, to believe that the intention then entertained is not abandoned, and that measures are in progress to effect the erection of a mill or mills combining considerable power with the greatest possible economy. The erection of wind-mills on the principle so well known in England and so extensively used on the continent, appears most likely to attain the desired end. We are quite certain that the Governor would readily allow the necessary quantity of ground on the western park to be occupied for the purpose, and as there is machinery within the colony as well as machinists to adapt it, we see no obstacle in the way to the immediate erection of one or two mills—either by the government for the use of the colonists or by a public association. We are glad t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY. We have been favored by Osmond Gilles Esq., with the following circular embodying the objects of a society formed in England with the above title:— The objects of this society are to protect the interests of South Australia, but more especially to guard against any encroachment on the two leading principles contained in the act under which the province was founded.   These principles are :—     1st. That no land in the said province shall be disposed of unless at a uniform price of not less than twelve shillings per acre. 2d. That the whole proceeds of such land shall, without any deduction whatsoever, be em- ployed in conveying poor emigrants from     Great Britain or Ireland to the said province.   Such an institution is especially requisite at the present time, when the administration of the South Australian act, as respects colonization,   has been removed from th...
