COMMERCIAL POSITION OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

COMMERCIAL POSITION OF THE COLONY. The difficulties which the failure of one or two rather large dealers occasioned in our commu- nity, turn out, as we said they would, to be excessively over-rated, and to have produced   no general or material effect upon the progress     of the colony, or upon the legitimate opera- tions of the settlers. The monetary affairs of   the province are rapidly improving, and indeed   we doubt that they have ever been in a sounder   or healthier state than at the present moment.   We have the best authority for stating that in   the banking establishments of Adelaide, the     number of past due bills is considerably under     the average—that the discounts are on a larger scale than heretofore; that the circula-   tion is increasing, and the stock of bullion   larger than it ...

NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE OF THE NURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE OF THE MURRAY. IN our last, we published a report addressed by his Excellency the Governor to the Co-   lonization Commissioners in reference to the   discovery of a navigable entrance of the Murray —an event of the greatest importance to the colony, and singularly calculated to enhance the value of all that extensive range of country   bordering on Lake Adexandrina and the Murray. Without at all detracting from the merit of our worthy friend Mr Pullen, the Marine Surveyor         of the colony, we are bound in fairness to state   that the "discovery" in question was made   nearly two years ago by a person named Gill,     who commanded the schooner Fanny, wrecked           at some distance to the eastward of the entrance The following is an extract from Captai...

THE LAST GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

THE LAST GAZETTE. For the accommodation of the settlers in Morphett Vale, Hurtle Vale, and the surrounding country, the Governor has been pleased to appoint Mr. Alexander Anderson, of the Emu hotel, Morphett Vale, to be postmaster for that district. From and after the 1st October next, the policeman proceeding with mails to Willunga and Encounter Bay, on Tuesday morning, will leave a letter-bag at the Emu hotel, and will call there for letters to   Adelaide in returning on Thursday afternoon.     The rate of postage from Adelaide to Morphett   Vale and vice versa will, until further notice, be     three-pence for each single letter.       From and after Thursday, the 1st October, all     parties having claims on the Colonial Treasury will             be required to ...

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. I am. &c. ABC. 25th September, 1840. To the Elders of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN — Will you allow me to propose a subject for the consideration of those who are candidates for civic honors. It is an important one, and I conceive they can hardly enter upon it           too soon, for it seems to be one upon which a         diversity in both opinions and practice prevails in the colony; and I am quite sure, after the last fortnight's experience, all will agree there is room         for improvement.   QUESTION. How shall we mend our ways? or in other words,         what is the best system of road making for South   Australia?     Should you consider it a fitting subject for ...

THE STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

THE STREETS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register.     GENTLEMEN—I have frequently observed in           your paper, remarks on the impropriety of allow-   ing wells and other excavations to remain open       and unfenced, and I thought means had long since   been adopted to prevent the continuance of such     mal-practices, but I fear it was only a dream—for   I perceive a well in the centre of an acre very   near your printers, and which is in fact quite a   thouroughfare, remains totally unprotested, save   that there is just a sufficient bank round it for one to stumble over, which would send them head-         formost to the bottom of the well. I suppose   when the Corporat...

SIGNALS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

SIGNALS. I am, &c. H.C. Hindley-street, Friday. GENTLEMEN—The inhabitants of Hindley, Rundle, and other streets of South Adelaide, are much indebted to your estabilishment for their indefatigable exertions to convey from your sig-     nol staff early and correct information of the         arrival and departure of vessels, but your simple         though intelligible code of signals are now partly   eclipsed by the Government having procured for   the West Terrace flag staff a set of Marryatt's flags. In order, therefore, that the Hindley-street   flag staff may not be behind, and to shew that       your exertions are appreciated. I beg to suggest by this means, that the inhabitants of the north part of South Adelaide present the Hindley-street   &nbsp...

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the Adelaide [?] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the Adelaide Chronicle Yours, &c., JOH. MENGE. Friend to the Aborigines. GENTLEMEN —I feel it to be my duty to direct your attention to the aborigines frequenting the country around the rivers Gawler and Para. Having rambled in the ranges there now about eighteen months, and entertained with the blakcs for the sake of mine own safety, as well as for the safety of Europeans in general, the best un- derstanding; wish to keep up the favourable im-   pression upon them when alone, and not to excite feelings of revenge without cause. When I treated some of them, and was not able to supply   great numbers. I was sorry that they robbed me     of my provisions clandestinely; but I could not   make a complaint after examining their notions of thieving. The only punishment not to allow them any more to step over the fence of my garden was sufficient to convince them of their transgression. ...

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 September 1840

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIR—I have perused with surprise and regret   the attacks on his Excellency the Governor in the leading article of the two last weeks' Registers in connexion with the late expedition against               the natives of the Murray—with surprise, that     the talented Editor should have propounded and enforced such erroneous dectrine; and with regreat, for the pernicious effects of such a course, both at     home and in the colony. My surprise has indeed     considerably abated since perusing the article of Saturday last, announcing the fact that the docu- ment on which the whole of this alarming outcry   is founded, was prepared by, and on the sugges-   tion of, the Editor himself, in his capacity of Private Secretary to the late Governo...

ENGLISH NEWS. By the Martin Luther so have Scotch papers to the 2nd of June, but they contain no news of importance. The following are a few extracts:— The projected treaty of commerce with France is dis- cussed with some earnestness in the city, especially the proposed reduction of the duty on French wines. Some parties consider the treaty would place us between the horns of a dillemma, and, setting aside the immediate loss of £300,000 per year consequent on the reduction, as ad- mitted on Friday by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, begin to reflect as to our position with other foreign nations, as for instance, Portugal, Spain, Sicily, or the Bhenish provinces of Germany. Using a phrase woich has become common among commercial men since the discussion on the Sicilian monopoly, they say either there is a treaty with those other countries that pats them on the same foot- ing "as the most favoured nations," or there is not. If there be such a treaty and the duty on the wines from thes...

BURNING OF YORK MINSISTER. (From ike Glangmi Argu*, Mjy 25.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 October 1840

BURNING OF YORK MINSTER. (From the Glasgow Argus, May 25.) On Wednesday evening the 21st May, the inhabitants of York were thrown into a state of the almost excite-   ment and consternation in consequence of its having been ascertained that their venerable and far-famed minster or cathedral was on fire. On that evening the anniversary meetong of a Protestant Association was being held in the music hall, when upwards of 1400 were assembled. About nine o'clock, a sudden damp was thrown on the   proceedings, information having been conveyed to the   chairman that the cathedral was on fire. The proceedings were immediately stopped, and the immense assembly, is deep concern for the safety of the venerable pile, broke up, and repared to the scene of destruction. Only a scanty supply of water could at first be obtained, and a delay occasioned before the fire engines could be set in operation. From the great height of the tower, the engines could not b...
