LIBBERS OF SOOUTH AUSTRALIA"CHAMBER'S EDINBURG JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 August 1840

LIBELLERS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA "CHAMBERS'S EDINBURGH JOURNAL." We have for the most part, laughed at the strange misrepresentations which from time to time have appeared in the English papers, in the guise of letters from emigrants. These epistles all profess to give faithful pictures of South Australia, but they are much more generally stuffed with descriptions of places     which the writers evidently never saw — inter-   larded with stories of men and things here, at such ludicrous variance with fact, that we can only trace their origin to the waggish mysti- fications which are sometimes practised on the "Griffins" or "Johnny Raws," and which     are not merely gravely swallowed by those fortunate persons, but forthwith transferred to paper, and transmitted to their anxious friends at home, as " a full, true, and particular ac- count" of the "Great South Land." The pride of having; " a friend abroad," who can write a long letter a...

THE MONEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 August 1840

THE MONEY MARKET. THE goods folks of Sydney have always had very queer motions of Adelaide and uncom-   monly correct information of its commercial affairs. That they continue to receive intelli- gence to be " depended upon " from this quarter, the following paragraph, which we find in a late number of the Sydney Gazette, may convince our readers :— "The money markets at Port Adelaide were in a de- plorable condition, the Banks having regused to discount upon any consideration."   Now, in the first place, there is no market   of any kind at Port Adelaide and, in the     second, admitting the Bank [?] be dis-   ounting on any consideration, they are never-   theless discounting as freely as heretofore to all persons whose paper they consider good, and refusing as heretofore to all whose paper they consider bad. Will our contemporary   test teh money market at Sydney by the same sim...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 August 1840

ENGLISH NEWS. Own English papers to the 2nd of may, re-   ceived by the William Mitchell, contain no news of importance. Parliament had again met, and the Tories had given notice that they intended another trial of strength on China   affairs. It was confidently stated that the Maine Boundary Question would be speedily and amicably arranged. RESPONSIBLE COLONIAL GOVERNMENT.—Erom   Halifax, Nova Scotia, we have newspapers to the   2nd, and private letters to the 4th instant. Affairs   in Nova Scotia have assumed a very serious as- pect. The House of assembly voted resolutions     declaring the necessity of remodelling the Exe- cutive Council on the principle of Lord JOHN   RUSSEL's despatch of the 16th October 1839, so     as to produce harmony between the Government and the House of Assembly. The resolutions   having been communicated to the ...

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

SYDNEY. By the late arrivals we have Sydney files from the 20th June to the 20th July. These we have not had time as yet fully to overhaul, but we give a few extracts, which a hurried glance has induced us to select:— HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR GIPP'S DEPARTURE.—In a short conversation with Honorable Members of Council on       Tuesday last, in reference to the new mode of represen-   tative government expected from home soon, His Excel-   lency remarked, that very probably it might not reach as           yet for nearly twelve months, and that he would not be here himself then.—Australian. HARBOUR ACT.—A new clause has been inserted in the Harbour Act, which orders that all vessels entering the Heads of Port Jackson shall carry a light at the mast-head till day-break. This will be convenient for sending the proper officers on board, and prevent the smuggling...

TENURE OF COLONIAL. OFFICES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 August 1840

TENURE OF COLONIAL OFFICES. Tnc following dispatch, applicable to all the Colonies, has been addressed to the Governor of Upper Canada: — Downing street, 16th Oct. 1839. SIR—I am desirous of directing your attention to the tenure on which public offices in the gift of the Crown appear to be held throughout the British Colonies. I find that the Governor him- self, and every person under him, are appointed during the Royal pleasure, but with this important difference—the Governor's commission is in fact revoked whenever the interests of the public ser- vice are supposed to require such a change in the   administration of local affairs, but the commis- sions of all other public officers are very rarely indeed recalled except for positive misconduct. I cannot learn that during the present or the last two reigns a single instance has occurred of a change in the subordinate Colonial officers, ex- cept in case of death or resignation, incapacity or misconduct. This system of c...

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

VARIETIES. CURE OF THE SCAB IN SHEEP—The following receipt for dipping sheep I have used for twelve years and found it answer. Take half-pound arsenic, half-pound sulphur, two and a half pounds soft soap, boil it in two and a half gallons of water until it is dissolved. My method of brewing is this: I have an iron boiiler (which may be pur- chased at any iron founders,) holding thirty-five   gallons, put in eight pounds arsenic, four pounds   soft soap, and eight pounds sulphur, thirty-two gallons soft water, and half-pound pearl ash, make it boil slowly for an hour, care must be taken, or the soap will make it boil over, when off the boil, put in the rest of the soft soap, and let it stand a night; when used, add twenty-four gallons of     water to two of the liquor, this is sufficient for nearly two score lambs at Midsummer, and   twenty-six hogs in March. I always save the   chamberlye for a week or two...

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

EMIGRATION. Slace nowadays there's every man Attempting Emigration, Why should not I propose a plan To benefit the nation? Long have I thought it in my mind, To find a fitting home, Might seem by nature's self designed For kindred souls to roam. The brewers should to [?] go, The logger-heads to [?], The Quakers to the Friendly Isles, The furriers all so [?];     The little bawling, squalling elves Who break our mighty rest, While their [?] haste to Balylen, Go to Lapland or to Brest. From Spithead, cooks run over Greese, And while the miser waits His passage to the Gunea coast, The spendthrift's is the Straite, To Genesa quck the drunkards for, At the Needles spinsters be, While gestmande much at [?] Isles— To ill [?] them to a T. Musicians hasten to the Sound, The Surplus pricses to House;   While [?] the face of hypocrites   At Canton are at "home,"   Send barbliers to the United States,   Maids to the I...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN EMIGRATION. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. North [?] Adelaide, Aug 28,1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 August 1840

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN EMIGRATION. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. North Terrace, Adelaide, Aug 28, 1840. I am, &c. EDWARD STEPHENS. GENTLEMEN—I have just received by the William Mitchell a copy of Chambers's Journal for April 19, 1840, containing strictures upon South Australia, founded upon some communications made from this colony by a Mr Brown, late of the firm of Sanders & Brown, of Gawler-place. To this article I beg to call your attention;   and I trust, in common with every lover of truth, that statements so reckless and so utterly at variance with facts will receive from you a well- merited public exposure and refutation. I sin- cerely regret that a publication so respectable, and having so extended a circulation as Chambers's   Journal, should lend itself to the dissemination of     falsehoods hardly ever equalled in the history of this colony.—I am, &c. The following is the article allu...

A CHURCH ESTABLISMENT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, Gentlemen, Yours respectfully, A CHURCHMAN. Adelaide, 27th August, 1840. GENTLEMEN:— I beg leave to draw your atten-   tion to a circumstance connected with the rights and interests of the Established Church, which has been misrepresented by your contemporary the Chronicle of yesterday, in its preliminary   remarks on the New Marriage Act. It is stated by the Editor of that journal, that "in South Australia there is no dominant sect—no State provision for any persuasion—and that the volun- tary principle alone is recognized and acted upon." The Chronicle labours under a mistake. The   Established National Church—the Church of England—is the Established Church in the Colonies; and members of that church form, what your contemporary would call, the "domi-     nant sect." The Lord Bishop of Australia in- cludes South Australia within his diocese...

ANOTHER OVVERLAND ARRIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

ANOTHER OVERLAND ARRIVAL. We have much pleasure in announcing the arrival overland from New South Wales, of another the herd of cattle, brought by Mr J. Fisher. Mr Fisher started from Yass on the 21st June, accompanied by Mr Hallack, who     left this place along with Mr Fisher, and by   Messrs Hallett and Mclntosh, from Sydney. The remainder of the party consisted of ten   white men and two blacks. The herd consists of cows, heifers, steers, and bullocks, 850 in number; 35 working bullocks, and 25 horses. The party kept the northern side of the Mur- rumbidgee and the Murray the whole way. The track has now become so distinct, Mr Fisher states that in some places it is like tra- velling along a regular high road. The feed along the Murrumbidgee was very good, on the Murray not quite so good. Very little loss was sustained on the journey. Two or three head of cattle were lost in crossing the Darling, the waters of which were swollen...

GENTLEMEN—Feeling it to be important that   the public should be correctly informed on the subject adverted to in the loading articles of the Adelaide Chronicle of Wednesday last, I beg to communicate to you the following facts, which I learnt at a late hour yesterday evening. Major O'Halloran, on arriving in the neigh- bourhood of the place where some of the un-   fortunate passengers of the Maria were re- cently murdered, obtained the most conclusive evidence that the sufferers on the sea...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have not received the article R.M. alludes to; but if the distriliers have written to correct so pitiful an insinu- ation, they have taken more trouble on the subject than it was worth. We decline to insert the letter tot he Protector of the Aborigines—for this week, at least. The Bill of Fare for the first civic entertainment is amusing enough; but will our correspondent forgive us for hoping that £300 per annum will afford something better than "salt pork" and "dough-boys?" Several articles and communications in type, stand over.

LIBELLERS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA —"CHAMBER'S EDINBURG JOURNAL." [SECOND NOTICE.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

LIBELLERS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA —"CHAMBER'S EDINBURGH JOURNAL." [SECOND NOTICE. ] Mr. BROWN"S most serious mistake regarding the colony is what he terms its "acknowledged want of water in general". This sweeping assertion is supported another equally broad, that the " sheep-runs are for the most part watered by a string of pools collected from the winter rains." Now, considering that Mr Brown never visited one single sheep-run during his stay in the colony, his description of its water supply can scarcely be taken as trust- worthy, seeing especially that it is not scrupu- lously correct. That our sheep-runs are more abundantly watered during the rainy months than during those of summer, needed no one " from Denmark" to tell the good people of Scotland, who surely are sufficiently skilled in the effects of wet weather. But the known runs in South Australia—and these are calcula- ted to be ample for five millions of sheep—are watered either by springs or by living brooks, and in the last...

THE VOUNTARY PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

THE VOUNTARY PRINCIPLE. It gives us very sincere pleasure to learn that measures are in progress to secure the preser-   vation and free working of the Voluntary principle within the colony. The late colo- nization Commissioners desired most anxiously to avoid all State interference on the subject, and although the Home Secretary has requested the opinion of the Governor on the applica- bility to this province of the plan suggested by Sir Richard Bourke, and acted upon in New South Wales, we have good reason to believe that His Excellency will not recommend the introduction of that plan, and we have perfect confidence that Lord John Russell will not sanctum any State provision either for parti- cular denominations or for religious purposes generally. The "harmony" which we alluded to in our last will continue unimpaired while no one sect of Christians is called upon to contribute to the maintenance of another—and no longer. It is in this belief that we have deprecated a...
