Advertising [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

FLOUR.—By private advices from Launceston, written the day before the Lady Emma sailed, we learn that flour there had fallen to £28 a ton. The Fez arrived from Sydney, having left on the 4th August, just as the Lady Emma was leaving, and reported that flour was at a still lower figure in Sydney when she left. The brig Nereus ar-   rived at Hobart Town on the 7th August with a full cargo of flour from the United States. We believe flour is still as high as £40 here, but it must come down immediately.

THE NEW MARRIAGE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

THE NEW MARRIAGE BILL. MARITUS. Adelaide, 2nd Sept, 1840. A RESPECTED correspondent has drawn our attention again to the proposal Marriage Bill. We publish his letter and recommend it to general perusal and consideration. In our next we shall review the whole question at length:—   To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—Considering the great importance of the Marriage Bill, it is a gratifying circum- stance that public attention has been so much directed to it. That the Bill, as proposed in the Council, requires many alterations, seems the   universal opinion, but what certainly is there that any alterations at all will be made in it? I have   looked over it with some care, and I cannot say whether it provides for the solemnization of marriages by ministers belonging to the Inde- pendents, Mathodists, Baptists, &c. or not. One thing clear is, that it does not authorise these ministers to celbrate marriages in virtue ...

GENTLEMEN— I belong to the Scotch dissen- ting Presbyterian body, the clergymen of which, at home have the power of solemnizing marriages after the proclamation of banks. Will you or any of your correspondents inform me if the new Marriage Bill will deprive me and other dissenters   from the Scotch establishment now in this free colony of any of the privileges we enjoyed at To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, 3rd Sept., 1840. GENTLEMEN—I beg leave, through your medium, to call the attention of my Scottish countrymen to       the circumstances of here being no minister of the   Church of Scotalnd in this colony, where Scotch-   men, notwithstanding, appear to be numerous.   The Church of England and several other deno- &am...

A SETTLER. widely extended journal.— GENTLEMEN:— It has long been a matter of surprise to me that no acknowledgement has yet been publicly made of the gratuitous services of the late commissioners to whom we are indebted for the establishment and prosperity of this pro- vince. Recent events appear to me to render it imperative now to do so; and I would suggest the propriety of a general meeting of the settlers being immediately called for the purpose of offering them a public testimonial of our ap- probation, and an expression of our thanks for their unwearied exertions on behalf of South Australia. Whether you coincide with me in the necessity of such a step or not, I should feel obliged by the insertion of this letter in your

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

PORT PHILLIP. By the Lady Emma we have Melbourne papers up to the 9th August. Money matters in Melbourne seem to be in as bad a condition as in all the other colonies at present, to judge from the number of persons   advertising for money. In the papers before us we observe nearly a dozen advertisements from persons wishing to borrow sums of from £100 to £1000. The following are the only paragraphs worth extracting:— Geelong.—Yesterday a deputation readied town, ap-   pointed at a public meeting of the settlers in the district   of Geelong, to wait upon His Honor the Superintendent with a remonstance on the subject of the unprotected state in which the country is left, notwithstanding that the blacks are committing almost daily outrages, and have repeatedly destroyed human life as well as property. The settlers complain that the district is at present altogether unprotected, inasmuch as when a shepherd was murdered by the blacks the other day, ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. OUR papers to the 20th August by the Lady Emma, are as uninteresting as usual. Can the Cornwall Chronicle inform us how it comes we have not received a single copy of that paper? The following are a few extracts: —   Mr Turnbull is appointed Colonial Treasurer vive Mr   Gregory, removed pending the pleasure of the Colonial Minister, and Mr R. C. Gunn is named Clerk of the Council, Mr Gregory, we learn, thinks he has been very     ill-used, in being so peremptorily dismissed; but we are only surprised that Sir John Franklin did not pursue this course twelve months ago, considering how Mr Gregory has indentified himself with the opposition to his Excel- lency's administration. Many of the colonists have expressed               a wish that his Excellency would have made more popular nominations in filling up the vacancies.—Hob...

CHINA. (From Wednesday Chronicle September 2 ) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

CHINA. (From Wednesday Chronicle September 2 ) By way of Sydney we have new from China to the beginning of May. The news is, however, un-     important, none of the expedition having reached farther than Singapore. No movement beyond merely guarding against any act of agrcssion had taken place—the arrival of the troops and war ships being waited for. The Singapore Free Press of May 7th says:— Intelligence has been received during the week from Penang, of the arrival there of the Eruaud, Edmanstone, Defiance, and Indian Oak, from Calcutta, with the Came- lonians on board, leaving the Rohomany, with the head quarters of the regiment to follow. H.M. 49th regiment, with the native volunteer corps, were to leave Calcutta   about the 8th April, and as accounts in Calcutta report the John Adams as likely to sail from Madras, with the Sap- pers and Artillery on the 6th of the same month, and there being little doubts the 18th or Royal Irish are already...

REMARKABLE PHENOMENON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 September 1840

REMARKABLE PHENOMENON. I am, Your constant reader, GRIFFIN. To the Editor of the Adelaide Chronicle. Adelaide, 27th 1840. SIR—Most of your readers, doubtless,     have heard of "Paddy Blake's" astonishing echo,   which on the question being asked "How do you   do Paddy Blake?" was accustomed to answer     "Very well, I thank you, sir!"     Many of our fellow-colonists are also aware that the neighbourhood of Adelaide abounds with echos having most peculiar characteristics, but are probably not aware of the existence of one with whose powers I desire to acquaint them. Fully to elicit and enjoy this penomenon, the philosopher must stand mid way between the re- sidences of Messrs Gleeson and MacTavish, with his face towards the mountains, just an hour after midnight, and uring the fall of our heaviest colonial rains. Under no other circumstances can the full powers of tbe echo be dra...
