SHIPPING ARRIVED IN PORT ADELAIDE FROM Ist JAN. TO 30th JUNE, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 August 1839
SHIPPING ARRIVED IN PORT ADELAIDE FROM Ist JAN. TO 30th JUNE, 1839. The amount of taxation levied on the colonials is exceeding -ly (unknown); the only taxed articles being ardent spirits, wines tobacco and publicans licences. But these have produced in the first quarter of the present year £2750 12s. 9d.; the official report for June 30 have not been published and we have not been able to ascertain the exact amount for that period. We may safely taken to be at least equal to the preceeding quarter, and state the whole produce of our taxation for the half year to exceed £5,500. The increase of stock during the six months has far exceeded the calculations we made in our last notice of the Progress of the Colony. By sea the importation of stock has amounted to 265 bullocks. 160 horses and about 27,000 sheep; while the importations by the overland route may be stated as follows:- &nbsp; bullocks, cows etc 3250, horses 96, sheep13,050. The total stock now in the province, calcul...
THE EX-EMIGRATION AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 August 1839
THE EX-EMIGRATION AGENT. We return to the notice of Mr. John Brown with very great reluctance, not merely because we have already sufficiently exposed the utter absurdity of that gentleman's crotchets, but because the matter really possesses no public &nbsp; interes. As Mr. Brown, however, has chosen to write a letter to the Southern Australian containing some very impudent mis-statements, we trust our readers will allow us briefly to notice them. We stated some time ago in answer to an assertion of Mr. Brown's—lst, That it was not true that he had ever been "vilified and abused" in this journal; and, &nbsp; 2nd, That Mr. Brown's statement that his ap- pointment as Emigration Agent by the Colo- nization Commissioners was a "mere fiction." Mr. Brown, in his letter, notices the former of these allegations in the following terms : — "I beg leave to give you the facts: On the 13th April, Mr. Stevenson chose in the Register not only falsely to attribute to me an article w...

v Amuaisi:Mi:M'.J THE "EGOTIST." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Fair Readers, In spite of all you may have heard, we are not &nbsp; yet dead. We shall have the pleasure to come out on Tuesday next, the 18th, and shall show &nbsp; &nbsp; good and sufficient reasons for our temporary &nbsp; eclipse. &nbsp; In our next will be all the Port Lincoln news, and any novelty from the colonies or the mother country. A very luminous article upon the distinction between the law of "libel" and "defamation," with &nbsp; some particular mention of actions brought by a friend of ours against divers "honorable men" (?) for the latter. Some particulars of an intended hostile meeting, a full account of the sale by auction this day of land at Port Lincoln, with a few remarks upon the circumstances under which it took place, and some well-merited commendations on the politeness of that "prince of auctioneers," Richardson, to Mr. &nbsp...
THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 August 1839
THE NATIVES. It is a subject of the utmost gratification to observe the progress made in bringing the natives to a state of civilization. For some time past a number of them have been em- ployed under the superintendence of the Pro- &nbsp; &nbsp; tector and Interpreter, in constructing homes &nbsp; &nbsp; for themselves on the park land, and they have &nbsp; &nbsp; already considerable progress in learning &nbsp; &nbsp; the art of pieze wall building. Several of &nbsp; them are also employed in the Survey Depart- &nbsp; ment at Yankalilla and Aldingha (Aldinga), who receive rations and pay the same as white laborers. &nbsp; &nbsp; And last, though far from being least, we are &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; informed that at the fishing station at Encounter &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Bay, a whaling boat is manned entirely with aborigines, whose...

Shaen was inserted by us merely as an advertisement, and paid for as such.
IMPORTANT TO NEWLY ARRIVED EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
IMPORTANT TO NEWLY ARRIVED EMIGRANTS. We beg to direct the attention of newly arrived Emigrants to the following well-timed and judicious nation of the Surveyor-General .— Notice - It having come to the knowledge of the Surveyor General that Emigrants living in the Colony &nbsp; &nbsp; have on many instances received erroneous infor- &nbsp; mation relative to the sale of land, and the means &nbsp; by which they can alone ascertain the situation of &nbsp; &nbsp; such land as they may want either for agricultural &nbsp; or other purposes, he has obtained the Governor's &nbsp; permission to put this as a standing notice into the Gazette, to meet the eye of every Emigrant on landing. It is therefore requested that all parties &nbsp; wishing for information relative to and will apply at the Surveyor-General's Office, Morphett-street. By such a course they will save themselves much disappointment and anxiety, and will...
SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
SPAIN. The following letter from Toulon, of the 14th of March, is a confirmation of the report which has been for some time in circulation, of a plan for the marriage of a Prince of the House of Austria to Queen Isabella II.:— " News from Vienna has been received here. That Cabinet has formed a plan for marrying an Archduke to Queen Isabella; and Prince Met- &nbsp; ternich has positively refused all pecuniary as- sistance to Don Carlos. It is further affirmed that conferences are going to be opened at &nbsp; &nbsp; London. France and England alone will be interested in this question; as for Russia and Prussia, they will leave Austria to take its own Counsel." The Memorial Bordelais says—" It is believed that Marato and Espartero will shortly sign a truce for five months, as a prelude to dynastic negociations" — Le Commerce. &nbsp;

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
PORT PHILLIP. The sales of land in the district of Australia Felix are going on rapidly. We understand that two of our spirited and enterprising Colonists propose travelling to Adelaide in chaise and pair—tandem fashion. How this will astonish the [?] Adelaidians. How many of the famed Adelaide people have &nbsp; travelled overland to Melbourne? [?] answers —None. Is this want of energy, or what? We say, want of NERVE. They cannot bear the fatigue, as witness, they have never yet been 50 miles from their port— Port Phillip Patriot, July 11. [Might the reason not be as fairly found in the fact that we "pauvre Adelaidians" have too much to do at home?— Ed. of Register.] Our fellow colonists are about to commence in good earnest. The Fire and Marine Insurance Company has opened up the way for other safe and useful institutions. We learn with pleasure that a Joint Stock Bank is about to commence active operations. This is what the colonists look for—it is what the colonists desi...
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
NEW SOUTH WALES. Capture of sullivan and Jourdain—These two celebrated runaways from Goat Island were cap- &nbsp; tured on Thursday night, under the following cir- &nbsp; cumstances:—In the course of the same afternoon, the two men in question went on board the Francis &nbsp; Spaight in a small dingy, and inquired for a man who did not belong to the vessel. They were ob- served by the chief officer. Mr. Sayers, who thought them suspicious characters and desired them to leave the ship, which they accordingly did, About eleven o'clock on the same evening, while Mr. Sayers was walking round the ship, he observed a small dingy floating near the ship's bows. A wa- terman with his boat being at a little distance, Mr. Sayers called to the man, and in his boat went round to the dingy, which he brought back, and secured to the side ladder, and desired one of the ship's boys to watch in her; he then went &nbsp; into the cabin and procured a lanthorn, and arm- i...
WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
WEST INDIES. Her Majesty's packet Pigeon has brought a mail from the West Indies; the dates are from Bar- badoes to the 2nd of February, Trinidad the 12th, and Jamaica to the 26th idem. The accounts are more satisfactory than any we have yet seen re- garding the working of the new system of labor. A Jamaica paper says —" Our correspondent writes from St. Thomas there is little produce coming here from Puerto Rico, nor is there much expected to arrive for sale. The crop is large: teh same in St. Croix. The accounts from wind- &nbsp; ward as to crop and other matter are favourable in general: there seems to be little or no difficulty &nbsp; in finding laborers to do all that is required on reasonable terms. It appears strange that it should be otherwise in Jamaice, and that the fact of its being so should not be satisfactorily accounted for."— Greenock Advertiser, April 5th.
SOUTH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
SOUTH AMERICA. The Petrel packet, Liutenant Crooke, has brought the Mexican and other mails, having left Vera Cruz the 4th. Tampico the 15th of February, and Havanna so recently as the 1st ult. This vessel brings interesting intelligence from the Republic, inasmuch as an arrangement of the differences between the French and the Mexicans was likely to be soon accomplished, although the regular advices from the coast via the United States by the Liverpool steamer, and are, to a considerable extent, continued by the arrival of this packet. Santa Anna, who had quite re- covered from his wounds, quitted his farm on the 2nd of February for the city, to assume the Presidency voted him by the chambers during the absence of Bustamente, who, at the head of 4000 troops, had marched against the federalists at Tampico, whose numerical force had been con- siderably increased by the arrival from New Orleans of General Megia with a body of soldiers &nbsp; and materiel. At Tampico Lieut. Cro...

UNITED STATES. JAMES K. POLK. Speaker of the House of Representatives. WILLIAM R. KING. Aresident pro tem, of the Senate. Approved, March 3, 1839. M. Van BUREN. News of rather an important kind had arrived from the United States. The north-eastern [?] [?] had been engaging the attention of the Congress, and the tallowing bill was passed [?] dissentients the night before Congress &nbsp; &nbsp; broke up:— &nbsp; LAW FOR THE DEFENCE OF THE UNITED STATES. "An Act giving to the President of the United &nbsp; States additional powers for the Defence of the &nbsp; United States, in certain cases, against Invasion &nbsp; and for other purposes." Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Re- presentatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that the President of the United States be, and he hereby is, authorised to resist any attempt of Great Britain to enforce, by arms, her claims to exclusive jurisdiction over that part of t...
PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 August 1839
PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. In our last we detailed at some length the progress of the colony during the past half- year as regarded its population, its revenue, and its commerce. On the first of these points we showed that in two years and seven months —since the 28th December, 1836, the date of the establishment of the province, its popula- tion had increased from 200 to 8,250 souls; that its revenue, consisting only of duties on spirits, wines, tobaccos, and publicans' licences, amounted, for the last six months, to above £5,000 ; and that the arrivals in Port Adelaide, for the same period, consisted of 99 vessels, &nbsp; 21,709 tons, equalling the entire amount of the last year's shipping in the province. We may add here as a fact worthy of notice, that it appears from the latest Tasmanian, a Hobart Town paper, that the number of vessels in the Derwent, at the date of its pub- lication, was nine —their tonnage 2276. The &nbsp; average number of vessels in Port Adelai...
