LIBELLERS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. "CHAMBERS'S EDINBURGH JOURNAL." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

LIBELLERS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. "CHAMBERS'S EDINBURGH JOURNAL." I am, &C., JOHN HINDMARSH. 4th Sept. 1840. In our last two numbers we entered at consi- derable length into the gross and most un- founded misrepresentations made by Chambers and his correspondents regarding South Aus- tralia. The letters and uncalled for remarks in question would not have been noticed at such length, had it not been on account of the circumstance of their having appeared in a periodical extensively circulated over all Scot- land, England and Ireland, and therefore calculated to do much injury by an expression of opinion so strong as that given against South Australia in the April number. We have however shown, to the satisfaction, we trust, of every one—first, from the testimony of one of the very persons adduced by Cham- bers as evidence against this colony—testimony given now after more than a twelvemonth's residence in it—and secondly, from facts—in- disputable facts—that both the letters them...

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. We beg to call the attention of persons poses- sing the qualification necessary to entitle them to become electors in the Municipal Corporation to the fact that Thursday next is the latest day on which claims can be lodged. All persons who have not already enrolled their names, ought to lose no time in doing so. In our advertising columns will be found a notice       from the Returning Officer on the subject. The 8th of October is fixed on as the day on which the roll of electors shall be publicly revised; immediately after which, we believe, the first election will take place.

THE EMMIGRATION FUND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

THE EMMIGRATION FUND. In the South Australian Record of the 23rd of May last, we meet with the following:— In the debate in the House of Lords, on Tuesday, on the abolition of transportation, the Marquis of Lansdowne is reported to have declared,that "emigration ON A LARGE SCALE should be encouraged to repair the great injury   which has been done to this newly discovered country and its society, by deluging it with vice and criminality." We presume that the marquis, who occupies a high and res- ponsible position in the cabinet, on this occasion expres-   sed the sentiments of the rest of her Majesty's ministers as well as his own. Why then do not ministers immedi- ately lend their assistance to accomplish this emigration on "a large scale?" And more especially, why do they     not in common justice determine at all events to return the Three hundred thousand pounds to the New South Wales people, constituting that portion of the land revenue of the colony w...

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. WAR WITH NAPLES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. WAR WITH NAPLES. It was expected at the date of our last intelligence from England, that the difference with Naples       regarding the sulphur question, would have been     ammeably settled, France having, it was said, in- terposed. Such, however, it appears, has not been the case, war having actually commenced.   A despatch from Naples dated the 18th April, says.— "The British ships of war in the neighbourhood of   Naples commenced reprisals on the 19th, and captured,       it is said, 50 vessels. The Neapolitan vessels at Malta, are under embargo. The Neapolitan government is   placing the coast in a state of defence." The Plymouth Herald of May 9, gives more par-     ticulars of these despatches. It says:—   NEAPOLITAN WAR.—We stated in our last that a portion of the British Flee...

SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

SCOTLAND. An universal excitement and anxiety existed in Scotland for some time previous to the sailing of the Lysander, caused by the Veto Question, and the probably results of the deliverations of the Ge- neral Assembly on this particular subject. the stirings of the Assembly would commence in the   end of May. A General Fast Day was ordered for the purpose of "interceding with Divine Providence to assist the members of the Assem-     bly" in the forthcoming meeting. The Spectator of May 9, says, in reference to     this subject:—     The seven suspected ministers of the Presbytery of       Strathbogie, who obeyed the decree of the Supreme Civic         Court rather than that of the Commission of the General Assembly, were cited by the Commission which met in     &nbsp...

MISCELLANEAOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. SHOCKING MURDER OF LORD WILLIAM RUSSELL.—On the morning of the 6th May, the west end of London was thrown into a state of the greatest consternation by a report that Lord William Russell had been barbarously murdered the night previous, in his house, Norfolk-street, Park-land. On enquiry, the report was found too true; and the following are the particulars of the hortid affair,       so far as we can learn them:—Lord W. Russell retired   to bed on the night of the 5th, in good health, about mid-   night. Next morning, one of the main servants was sur-   prised to find his lordship's cloak folded up behind the   door, and a silver dish cover wrapped up in a cloth, in which was also an opera glass, a silver pencil case, and   several other small articles. She immediately informed       his lordship's valet, who proceeded...

FRANCE. The intelligence from the French capital, contained in the English papers, is up to the 24th May. The following are the most important extracts:— COMMERCIAL TREATY WITH ENGLAND [?] In the French paper [?] Presse, we find the folowing [?] respect-   ing the proposed highly important Commercial Treaty   between France and England:—After negotiations long               interrupted and frequently broken, it appears at last that           the English and French commissioners are agreed as to     the basis of the commercial treaty of which we have so often spoken. France will increase the import duties on   linen cloth and thread, and it will take off the prohibition       on fine hardware, coarse earthenware, on manufactured...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

AMERICA. The commercial intelligence by the New York [?] ships is not very cheering. The money-market was easy, but trade had not improved. After a protracted struggle, the Legislature of Pennsylvaia had passed a bill, to which the Governor asserted, fixing       15th of February, 1811, for the resumption of specie             payments by the banks of the State. In the mean while, dividends may be made. The shares of the United States       Bank were quoted at 75 to 75½, and of the Manbattan at     88. According to an estimate in one of the papers, the cotton crop of 1839, yielded 1,800,000 bags, or 100,000     more than previous year's—Spectator May 9.     CANADA.—In the house of commons on the 1st May   in answer to Mr [?] Lord John Russe...

LONDON MARKETS. WEEK ENDING MAY 23,1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

LONDON MARKETS. WEEK ENDING MAY 23,1840. TEA—A large share of public attention is still turned to this article, which, from the uncertainty when a regular trade will be re-established with China, is in a very critical position, and in a great measure affects all branches of commerce. The       nearest prices are—2s. 3d. for Company's congou:     2s. 1½d. for ordinary free trade congou; and     2s. 3d. for rwankay—all cash. OILS.—In common fish oils there is a moderate   business only doing, but prices are firmly main-   tained. Pale seal has brought on the spot 21l.; and for early arrivals, 25l. to 25l. 10s. has been       obtained. There is little or nothing doing in sperm.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 September 1840

VARIETIES. PURSUIT IN LIFE.—No life can be happy but that which is spent in the prosecution of some purpose to which our powers equal, and which we, therefore, prosecute with success; for this reason it is absurd to dread business under the pretence that it will leave few intervals         of pleasure. Business is that by which industry pursues     its purpose, and the purpose of industry is seldom dis-   appointed; he who endeavours to arrive at a certain point, which he perceives himself perpetually to approach, enjoys all the hapiness which nature has alloted to those     hours that are not spent in the immediate gratification of appetites by which our own wants are indicated or of               affections by which we are prompted to supply the wants of others. The ends propo...
