THE NATIVES OF LYNDOCH VALLEY [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 September 1840

THE NATIVES OF LYNDOCH VALLEY We have been informed by two gentlemen o   respectability, who have come in from Lyndoch Valley within the last two days, that the letter which appeared in yesterday's Southern Australian regarding an apparently hostile visit of a body of natives to the above district is all a parcel of stuff. As the letter treats the matter as a some- what serious occurrence, and is likely to be looked on as such by persons who have not the means of ascertaining the simple truth, it may be well to state the facts of the case as given us by the gentlemen mentioned who were eye-witnesses. The letter states that the natives first assembled to the number of 270, and afterwards their num- bers wese augmented to 500. This, certainly, would be rather a formidable array for six men to stand up against. According to our informants however, and unfortunately for " Veritas," who evidently wishes to leave an impression that he had been engaged in something very seriou...

THE ENTRANCE TO THE MURRAY. THE following report from the Resident Commissioner to the Colonization Commissioners, is taken from the Thursday's Gazette:— 15th September, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 September 1840

THE ENTRANCE TO THE MURRAY. THE following report from the Resident Com- missioner to the Colonization Commissioners, is taken from the Thursday's Gazette: — 15th September, 1840. Gentlemen—I have the great satisfaction of reporting to you the discovery of a navigable channel at the sea mouth of the River Murray. The difficulties hitherto attendant on the solution of this question have been the utmost continual setting in of a sea too heavy to be encountered by undecked boats, and the doubt, with apparent strong cause, whether there were depth of water, within the breakers sufficient to admit vessels of larger burthen. Having had two or three days of very favorable opportunity for observing the outside of the mouth from the high sand hills on the eastern side I ascertained what I conceived to be the course of a channel of deep water in which the rollers broke with much less force than on either side of ir. On mentioning the circumstances to Mr Pullen (the Colonial Marine Surveyor), w...

PROCEEDINGS OF THE COUNCIL Tuesday, September 15. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 September 1840

PROCEEDINGS OF THE COUNCIL Tuesday, September 15. GEORGE GAWLER. Governor South Australia. By His Excellency's command, GEORGE HALL. Acting Colonial Secretary. THE Council met this morning at ten o'clock. All the members of Council were present. After the minutes of last meeting had been read, His Excellency read the following minute on the recent murder committed by the abori- gines on the Coorong, in the month of August, 1840 .— On the 12th of August last I laid before a   Council specilly assembled for the purpose,   the reports which had been forwarded to me concerning the murder of several Europeans   by the natives near the coast to the south-east of Encounter Bay. His Honor the Judge,   who attended by particular request, and all the   members present, including the Advocate Ge-   neral, declared their opinions that the crimes in question were beyond the reach of the ordi- nary British Law. Of such ...

SYDNEY. [From Sydney papers of August 18.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 September 1840

SYDNEY. [From Sydney papers of August 18.] MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL.—The second reading of this bill was commenced on Thursday last, when the first six clauses were read. The minimum population of a town which should have a corporation was fixed at three thousand persons. The qualification requisite to enable a person to vote was fixed at £35 per annum. The clause depriving persons who had been convicts of the right of voting until they had been free three years, was struck out, but it was resolved that no person should have a vote until he had been an occupant for at least three years. The further consideration of this bill will come on on Tuesday. —Sydney Gazette.   It is in contemplation, we believe, to have a census shortly taken, of the entire population of this territory. A census if at all fairly taken, is undoubtedly an excellent mode of coming at the numberical strength and resources of a country. At the present time, a correct census of our po- &nbsp...

PORT PHILLIP. [From Melbourne papers to August 22.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 September 1840

PORT PHILLIP. [From Melbourne papers to August 22.] The Captain of a vessel informs us that his vessel run aground while endeavouring to make the anchorage at Williams Town by the Western Channel: he adds that his vessel might not only have remained but been entirely wrecked there but for the prompt assistance rendered by Cap- tain Gill, of the Sir John Franklin, in lightening her of a portion of the cargo. Swan Point, or   rather the shoal which runs out from it, is open with the entrance by the Heads; the vessel, there-   fore, was exposed to the full fury of the gale which raged outside, at the same time that the compact hard character of the sand must have done considerable injury to her stern-post and rud- der during the time she lay thumping on the sand. This is another instance of the great risk encoun- tered by strange vessels in sailing up the harrassing if not dangerous shoals and channels which in- tersect the lower portion of the bay. It is anot...

THE STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 September 1840

THE STREETS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—In consequence of the long con- tinuance of rain, the four leading streets are at many points almost impassable, to the great in- convenience of the inhabitants, and the serious obtrusion of trade. Allow me to suggest that some better improvement might be effected by the Town Surveyor leaving the North Terrace till finer weather, and directing the party em-   ployed there to such spots in Hindley-street as the foot of Rosina and Leigh Streets, and from thence to the market in Rundle-street, also in   Grenfell-street, from the Commercial Inn to Fordham's Hotel. As the wretched state of all these portions of the town arises chiefly from parties excavating having been permitted to spread the sub-soil on the streets, it appears to me to be the duty of that officer to remedy the evil, and that the party could "do the ornamental" on the Government domain and North-terrace when the season impr...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1840. SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. The Instructions of the Governor to the Commissioner of Police, authorising that functionary to put to death summarily, and without judicial trial, not more than three natives of a tribe implicated in the murder of the persons shipwrecked in the Maria : His Excellency's Minute on the subject, read in Council on Tuesday last; and the Advocate General's defence of the proceeding, will be found verbatim in another part of our journal. Notes of the evidence on which the natives were executed, have, we observe, been laid before the Council, but remain as yet unpub- lished. It is to be regretted that any portion of the facts should be withheld—although perhaps they are not now essential to the consideration of the matter in its more important bearings, seeing that the testimony, at best, which satis- fied the Commissioner of Police and his party     of the gui...

The silly and impudent offension of [?] we shall publish if we can, as we think, trust the hand- writing, with the author's name in full. John Crow's     original song is certainly humorous; let the subject does not admit of a personal joke, however smart or applicable.

THE NATIVES OF LYNDOCH VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

THE NATIVES OF LYNDOCH VALLEY. In our last we made a few remarks on the Southern Australian's attempt to create un-   necessary apprehensions in the minds of the settlers to the norwards by holding forth that the Milmenrura nation, after having massacred the unfortunate people of the Maria, had in- vaded the neighbourhood of Lyndoch Valley in a most formidable body numbering as many as 500 armed men! This account, we were told,   was most enormously exaggerated, and we   made public the information we had received. On one point it now appears we were misin- formed, namely, with regard to some persons   having been struck by the natives. On other points our information is, however, confirmed   by what we have been told this week. The   Southern Australian states that Captain Sturt   has given him authority to say our last week's   statement was "false." If Captain Sturt will &a...

Although the number registered is fewer than we anticipated there is still a highly respectable constituency,     and so ample a stock of good citizens eligible to the Common Council, and to the higher   civic dignities, that we entertain to doubt that         an effective, intelligent working body will be     procured, and the corporate machine at once start into healthy motion.
