THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 22,1840. PROHIBITION OF DISTILLATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 22,1840. PROHIBITION OF DISTILLATION. It may in truth and sincerity be acknowledged that whatever may be the measure emanating from his Excellency the Governor they are in-   tended to promote the welfare of the province, and to increase the moral happiness of the colo- nists. The consideration of these facts, as much as our plain duty, brings us cheerfully forward on the present occasion, to state respectfully but distinctly the views we entertain on a question, not merely of vital importance ot the present and future interests of the community, but enunciating principles which demand at least careful examination before they receive legislation or public sanction. No one will be disposed to deny that if the vice of intemperance could be altogether checked, or even materially controlled by legislative enactments, an end so desirable would warrant the adoption of extraordinary means. But past experience—the histor...

ANOTHER WRECK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

ANOTHER WRECK.

She appears to have been British built, figure-   head a sailor full length, painted a bluish grey.

MISREPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE COLONY AT HOME. IN the South Australian Record of the 11th of April, we find the following: IRRUPTION OF THE NATIVES ON THE MURRAY RIVER.—We have referred, in our South Aus-   tralian intelligence, to the irruption of the natives on the Murray River, and their depredations on the flocks recently conveyed to the colony. From a letter, dated November 10, which we saw last night, from a gentlemen residing in Barnard- street. North Adelaide, it seems that the affair in the first instance wore a very formidable aspect, the natives coming down the river in canoes to the number of six hundred. The settlers retired towards Adelaide, but it seems the natives were speedily repelled, and order was restored. This hostile display on the part of the Aborigines, in deeply to be lamented. It is a pity that people who profess to be friendly towards the colony, and who carry on newspapers to prove their good feelings should be so imposed upon as to put fo...

ROPOSED MARRIGE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

PROPOSED MARRIAGE LAW. The late hour at which we received the proposed law for the regulation of marriages within the Province, and the necessity of handing it to the printers for publication, has prevented us from doing more than bestowing upon it a     hasty glance. It strikes us, however, that it   is not founded on the principles of the English       Marriage Act, and that there are numerous important omissions, which time or space do         not permit us even to indicate. In our next     we shall have an opportunity of fully considering the subject. That from and after the commencement of this   act it shall be lawful for any person in holy orders     of the church of England and for any ordained     minister of the church of Scotland to solemnize &nbs...

THE FRENCH AND NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

THE FRENCH AND NEW ZEALAND. (From the South Australia Record, April 18th.) Our readers are aware that in compliance with a requisition signed by many of the most impor-   tant firms in London, the Lord Mayor has called a meeting at the Mansion House, on Wednesday, "for the purpose of humbly petitioning Her Majesty and both Houses of Parliament, to adopt   prompt and efficient measures for preserving from invasion or abandonment the long-estab- lished Sovereignty of the British Crown to the Islands of New Zealand, at present endangered by foreign pretensions and by acts of the Execu- tive Government; also for stopping the course of lawless emigration and settlement, which has not only proved deeply injurious to the native people of the country, but threatens their speedy exter- mination; and lastly, for the establishing of the most beneficial system of colonization, and the protection and restrains of British Law, under     a distin...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

CHINA. Is a Van Diemen's Land paper we find a long, rambling and senseless article regarding China. The only new extracts in it which we can make anything of, are the following ones regarding the reported capture of Captain Smith, and the other a protest by the American merchants against a blockade of Canton. How   their information has been received, or to what date it extends, they say not; and we must,     therefore, give it as we find it. The first is   given on the authority of the Cornwall   Chronicle, the second from Murray's Re- view:—   The Black Swan brings a report which was prevalent in the Cape when she sailed, that Capt Smith, of the Volage and his boat's crew had been captured by the Chinese, who placed them in confinement, and caused it to be understood by the English fleet that the first sot fired by any vessel against the chinese would be the signal for depriving them of their heads. Prot...

SUPREME COURT CRIMINAL SIDE. Friday, July 17,1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

SUPREME COURT CRIMINAL SIDE. Friday, July 17,1840. The great importance to the community of the following trial induces us to report it at considerable length. The more facts of the case possess but slight interest, but in the decision the rights of every landed proprietor in the island are involved.

BANKRUPT LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

BANKRUPT LAWS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register.       GENTLEMEN—Understanding it to be the intention of his Excellency the Governor, at an early period, to lay before the Legislative Council a bill to regulate the Bankrupcy Law, and to provide for the more speedy re-     covery of debts contracted by bill or promissory note, I take the liberty of submitting a few remarks, not, however, with the belief that my suggestions will be adopted, but in the     hope, at least, that they may lead to some-   thing useful. As there can be but one opinion as to the encessity of some stringent measure being promptly passed into a law, I at once plunge ????:—           I.—The Bankrupt Law.   In Scotland, this important subject has for         years occ...

ERECTION OF FLOUR MILLS. (From the Adelaide Chronicle, August 19.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

ERECTION OF FLOUR MILLS. (From the Adelaide Chronicle, August 19.) The following letter from a "Practical Mil- ler," on a subject of great importance—the erection of Public Flour Mills—will be perused with general interest. We entirely coincide in opinion with the writer, that mills impelled   by wind would be the most advantageous— because, the cheapest. We know that there are mechanics in the colony well acquainted     with the mode of erecting these mills; and           what is equally material, there is, we under-         stand, stone in quality not inferior to that of   the French burr, in the greatest possible abun-       dances, a short distance below Onkaparinga, on         a spot easily accessible by sea. Without de- &...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The arrival of the Challenger has put us in possession of only one Van Diemen's Land newspaper, from which, in the present want         of arrivals, we have extracted as largely as possible:—     THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL—The meeting of     the Council will positively take place on the 1st proximo; and it romoured the absence of Mr Kerr will create a vacancy for Mr Kermode, of Mona Vale. NEW ACTS.—We have received the drafts of the following new Acts;—"an Act to provide for       the attendance of Jurors at Coroners' Inquests." A   penalty is imposed for non attendance and was     much needed. "An Act to provide for the payment of certain duties to be applied to the maintenance of Light houses in Van Diemen's Land."

SHIPWRECKS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 August 1840

SHIPWRECKS.                             NEVER since the foundation of the colony has the public been kept in such a state of excite- ment and anxiety as within the last fortnight. Scarcely has the melancholy intelligence of a vessel having been wrecked and some of her passengers cruelly massacred by the natives been received, when rumours of another vessel being ashore are afloat; and ere time has been afforded to ascertain the correctness or other- wise of this report, information is brought to town of the wreck of a vessel somewhere in the Gulf. In our last, we stated as an ascertained fact, that the Maria was wrecked, and that it was some of her passengers who had been murdered by the blacks. This assertion we made on being told by the Inspector of Police that the rings found on the lingers of the dec...

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 August 1840

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. We call the attention of our readers to a notice in another column, from which it will be seen that the Criminal Sessions are still to be holden on Tuesday next, the 1st September. In consequence of the absence of several important witnesses connected with the police, on the present expedition to Encounter Bay, and to save the Grand Jury the inconvenience of frequent attendance, it had been resolved   on that the Criminal Sessions which stood   adjourned for Tuesday next, should be still     further postponed, as regards all the cases,   till Monday the 15th. It was also supposed   that a party of witnesses expected from Port   Lincoln by the Alice would, from the late stormy weather and other circumstances, be detained   beyond the time first appointed, which would   have made the further adjournment indispen-   sable. It appears, howe...
