THE MARKETS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

THE MARKETS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, &c., A NEW SETTLER, C.T.H. GENTLEMEN—Allow me once more a few re- marks regarding the Market Day. I think there is no country where the fixing a market day re- quires more consideration than here, as the   country settlers cannot expect to have any other   than the Adelaide market to depend on for the sale of their produce for many years, and many will have a long way to carry this produce when they have it ready and the English system comes into operation. I find, by your last week's paper, that his Excellency Governor Gawler had given an audience to many interested in the market, and it appears we are to have two market days in   one week for those things which must be brought from the country. Now, surely, no one can ever intend that we are to come on Wednesdays to buy         or sell cattle, and on Saturdays with g...

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, Gentlemen, Yours, &c. A TOWNSMAN. GENTLEMEN —Not long ago, I saw in the Gazette a notice to the effect that the police and park-keepers were to consider it their duty to prevent as far as possible the natives from cutting wood on that portion of the park lands lying be- tween North and South Adelaide. After this notice, I was rather surprised the other morning to see a whole body of natives hewing and cutting away at the fine trees nearly opposite Government House; and not only this, but one fine tree was set on fire and continued burning during the whole day and succeeding night. Now, it is to me, and must be I think to every citizen of Adelaide, a matter of regret to see the only part of the park lands on which the trees have been preserved, and the only part which can now be converted into a pleasure ground, thus left for the natives to do as they please with. In a year or two, when our minicipal autho- r...

DISCOVERY OF THE NORTH-WEST PASSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

DISCOVERY OF THE NORTH-WEST PASSAGE. Since our last page went to press we have found in an English paper of a late date, a more ex-   tended account of this discovery which the interest of the solution of this geographical problem induces us also to publish :— Messrs Dease and Simpson, sent out by the Hudson's Bay Company two years ago, descended the Coppermine River on the 22nd of June, last year, on their third and happily most successful   expedition. On the 18th of the following month they reached Cap Barrow, and had the satisfac- tion of finding Coronation Gulf partially open,   "whereas," says the despatch, "long after the     same date, in 1838, the whole party might have crossed it on foot." They then doubled Cape Alexander amidst very heavy driving ice. "From   Cape Alexander, situated in lat. 68 deg. 56 min. N. long. 106 deg. 40 min. W. to another remark- able point in lat. 68. deg. 33 min. N., l...

THE WOOL MARKET. ( From the Chronicle.) WE have been favored with the following letter by Mr Freeman:— London, 5th March, 1840. We remain, dear sir, To Mr Thos. Freeman, } Thos. Southey & Son. Adelaide. Dear Sir— We regret the appearance of im-   provement in January was of very short duration; at this moment we never knew a more general gloom pervading every branch of the wool and woollen trades. The holders of most descriptions of wool got great relief, the end of last, and be- ginning of this year; and as the imports of all sorts of wool since has been particularly light, there   is no great pressure on the market. But we know a great many comprimises have taken place in the north, renewals, &c —and fear before long we shall hear of failures. The appearances for sow- ing are very favourable, which has removed a great deal of anxiety, as we are very dependent on the spring wheat this season. The wools purchased at the late sales cannot at ...

THE POST OFFICE.—ARRIVAL OF VESSELS. (From the Chronicle, August 12th.) As we consider it best always to publish com- plaints of a public grievance, in order if they are well founded that they may be remedied, if not, contradicted, we publish the following letter, with a few suggestions, to the propriety of adopting which we respectfully call the at-   tention of His Excellency the Governor, as we think it would be a benefit to the mercantile part of the public, and cause no inconvenience or expense either to the Government or to the Commanders of vessels:— To the Editor of the Adelaide Chronicle. Adelaide, 10th August, 1840. Sir—Allow me, through the medium of your valuable paper, to make a few remarks on our Post Office. It is not my intention to condemn the Post Office and its Managers, but to point out certain defects, that they may be remedied and improved. In the first place then, with regard to the delivery of letters :—When a vessel arrives and is signalised at ...

NEWS FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

NEWS FROM ENGLAND. By the Lalla Rookh we have received English papers to the 21st of April. We subjoin the most interesting extracts we have fallen in with. The intentions of Government with regard to China, which will be found fully detailed below, and the discovery of the North-west passage, are the msot important pieces of news. From the passengers by the Caleb Angas     and Lalla Rookh we learn that every fresh arrival in England was the means of opening the eyes of the English people as to the TRUE state and prospects of South Australia: and   the consequence was, that emigration hither promised to flow more abundantly than ever. Besides four ships taken up by the Commis- sioners, five private vessels were loading when the Lalla Rookh left. The news received from the colony reached to the 16th November. DISCOVERY OF THE NORTH-WEST PASSAGE.— The great geographical problem of the last three centuries has at length been solved, and, we are pr...

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

CHINA. In the House of Lords, on the 18th April, in answer to a question from Lord Aberdeen, Lord Melbourne stated that Her Majesty's Government intended to demand reparation for the injury done by the Chinese to the property of British sub- jects. If that reparation was not obtained, then it was intended to proceed against the trade of the chinese. for that purpose it would be ne- cessary to institute Courts to authorise the sale of such vessels and cargoes as might be seized. If reparation were made, of course no letter of   marque would be issued. Lord Colchester said he had been informed of the departure of a large steamer from Portsmouth, having letters of marque on board. Lord Melbourne replied that she belonged to   the East India Company, and was going to India.   In the House of Commons, on the 7th April, Sir James Graham made a motion of censure on   Government for not having, by prudence, fore-   sight, and ...

FORIEIGN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 August 1840

FOREIGN NEWS. FRANCE:- The ministry of M. Thiers being now in spite of all opposition, established, we pressure that the Court of the Tuileries will suspend, at least for a time, its hostiltiy; although       from what we know fo the matter, there is no doubt but it will be renewed the moment the state of affairs permits. M. Thiers is an ex- ceedingly clever man, but we doubt whether he is the most desirable member in the present crisis. If he attempt to conciliate the ultra-republican faction by rash concessions, he will be beaten. If he wishes to hold office, he must adopt a con- servative line of policy—a firm and conservative government is wanted in France as well as in England, now, more than ever.—London paper April 19. The Frankfort Journal of the 6th April con- firms the discomfiture of the Russian expedition expedition against China. The army had scarcely traversed half the desert when the officers pro- nounced the expedition impractic...
