SYDNEY. By way of Port Phillip we have Sydney news to the 2nd September. The following are extracts from papers of the 28th August and 2nd September:— The attention of the public has been forcibly drawn to the subject of coals, upon the Australian Agricultural Company having declared that it cannot supply the de-   mand upon it. The price, in consequence of the Company employing free labour instead of convicts, has been raised     from ten shillings to thirteen shillings at the pit mouth, and the price in Sydney is £2 5s. The Mining Company are examining the country in the neighbourhood of   Sydney, which is all of a coal formation, but the spot where they intend to bore has not yet been fixed on. It is believed in Sydney upon the authority of a letter from a gentleman of high standing in London, that Baring Brothers, Abel Smith, and one or two other leading houses intend to withdraw their capital from the United States and invest ...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 October 1840

VARIETIES. A NAILER.—It is not generally known, we be-   lieve, that experienced nailers can, without diffi- culty, distinguish their handiwork from that of others. At a trial which took place in Glasgow some years ago, a tradesman having selected and recognized from amongst several bags of nails,                 prepared by different individuals, one fabricated by himself, Mr Jeffrey, who was Counsel to the cause, stigmatised as incredible the notion that     the man could make any distinction betwen arti- cles which were so much alike. Nettled at this, the wtiness smartly asked the clever lawyer whe-   ther he could not identify articles in his own hand writing, particularly if they were placed alongside articles written by others? The lawyers, of course, answered in the affirmative, whereupon the wit-   &n...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1840. SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 October 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1840. SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. WE should have desired to leave at rest the whole of this deplorable affair; and we most assuredly would have done to now, had the part we have taken in its discussion been our only business to explain or defend. The silly endeavour to misrepresent our motives, we despise and forgive. The attempt to turn a question of vital principle into a personal dis- pute is too ridiculous to notice, while we really possess neither malice nor cruelty adequate to the task of quarrelling with those who, for- saking their wonted business of grossly abusing the Governor alike in his public and his private capacity, now bespatter him with equally foul praise, for a public action which, under a stern   and honest sense of duty, he has been led to commit—but which his kindlier feeling and calmer reflection must have told him long ago would have been far better left undone. Of the Governor ...

THE EXPLORING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 October 1840

THE EXPLORING EXPEDITION. The Erebus and Terror, the discovery ships so long expected, have at length arrived in our port, and an Observatory is in the progress of being constructed in the Government paddock, for which all the requisite instruments are provided. Great expectations are formed   of what this expedition is likely to effect, in respect of   magnetic observations, and synchronous days are set apart—or to speak more plainly, the same time the obser- vations are made here, they will be made in different parts of Europe, four stated days in the year having been appointed by the German Magnetic Association, and other periods in our own observatories. The maximum of north intensity is in Canada, and the corresponding southern one is in Van Diemen's Land. The hourly changes of declination have been already observed, but not those of variation and intensity, so that there is much yet to learn on these important points. The magnetic instruments have bee...

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, September 29, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 October 1840

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, September 29, 1840. I am Gentlemen, &c., A COLONIST OF 1836. GENTLEMEN—I have watched with painful in-   terest the recent proceedings against the natives and if I have forborne to express my feelings on the subject, it was that I relied that others whose bounden duty it was to do so, would not have been silent at a time when the interests of justice and humanity most loudly demanded their inter- ference. Besides a paid Protector of the Abori- gines, there is, I believe, also here a Committee of Correspondence with the Aborigines Protection Society of England. The voices of the Protector and of the Committee on this occasion have been unheard — although I remember that a member of the latter body—Mr J. B. Hack—distinguished himself by a public appeal against the execution of the natives who were judicially convicted of the crime of murder upon evidence which left no doubt of their guilt, and...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1840. PRODUCTIVE POWERS OF AUSTRALIAMISREPRESENTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1840. PRODUCTIVE POWERS OF AUSTRALIA MISREPRESENTATIONS. Mr. Editor, Yours obediently, A TRAVELLER. The Chronicle of Wednesday last refuted another of the series of calumnious fabrications with which it has been attempted to founder South Australia, but which fortunately, having no particle of sober verity in their composition, can effect little perrmanent harm. The mis- chief which such unprincipled misrepresen- tations produce is probably all their contrivers   desire—to create temporary doubts and uncer- tainly with regard to the actual capabilities of the province, and to let their fictions work as they best may, until they are demolished by truth and the evidence of incontrovertible facts. It rejoices us to say that we are at length rapidly approaching to that point when the day of the storyteller must be over, and the true character of South Australia be made ma- nifest to the world. The conclusive exp...

THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840

THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. The election of the Council will take place in the course of a week or two. The Chronicle proposes that the individual who obtains the greatest number of votes shall be recommended by the electors to the Common Council for the Mayoralty, and the three next in number for the office of Aldermen. there seems so much practical sense in this arrangement that we are not surprised to find it meet so very general acceptance among all classes of the citizens   that there is but little doubt of its being acted upon. On the subject of the Mayoralty we find in the Southern Australian of yesterday the following:— The time for electing the first Mayor for the City of Ade- laide is now at hand, and the public mind, of course, has been busy, as to the person best qualified to fill this highly honourable post. Our contact with society, and conse- quent means of obtaining cancel information, enables us to state, with a feeling of all but certainly, that James Hurtl...

NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE TO THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840

NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE TO THE MURRAY. I have the honor to be, Sir, Your obedient servant. W.H. PULLEN. To the Hon. the Surveyor-General, &c. The following official report from Mr. Pullen, Colonial Marine Surveyor, goes far to establish the fact that there is an entrance to the Mur-   ray available in weather and at a period of the tide at which it has hitherto been pronounced   not merely inaccessible but unapproachable. After the very careful and patient investigation   bestowed on the spot by Captain Sturt, we confess that it would be satisfactory, before   arring at an adverse conclusion, to obtain the daily result of Mr Pullen's observations for a certain period, so that the fact of a navigable   and available entrance may be proclaimed upon some more substantial authority than what may be, after all, merely accidental favorable exceptions to the general impracticability of the place :— Lower Crossing Place.

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. We publish the following letter, desirous to contribute, as far as it may be in our power, to the agitation of any question having so much undisputed good in it as the diffusion of Religious Instruction and the extension of Church accommodation. With regard to St. John's Church, we are   authorised to say that the sub committee ap-   pointed to superintend the building have resolved to sell in perpetuity the sittings in the said Church, in order, thereby, to raise a fund sufficient to render that edifice available for public worship, and if the fund prove ample enough, to finish it completely. They have fixed on the following scale of prices for the sittings, dividing then into three classes: the first being £4 each, the second £3, and the third £2 each. The above named sum purchases the right to the sittings, but it will be subject to such annual rent as the pew-holders shall hereafter deem adequate to the payment of the minister, the re...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840

CHINA. By the Guiana, from Singapore, we have received our Singapore papers to the 30th July inclusive, from which we annex several extracts. They are not, however, possessed of extraordinary interest—the expedition not having, up to the latest dates, arrived at China, but in the meantime the strength of   the expedition and the procecdiegs of the   Celestials possess at least sufficient interest to   entitle them to a place in our columns. We   begin with an extract from Wednesday's Chronicle:   Two ships, the Tomatin, Captain Wingate and     the Asia [Felix?] (a country ship), had been taken up by Government the first week in August to carry stores to china for the use of the expedition.   Captain Hall also informs us that most of the   American and other foreign vessels had left China, generally bringing cargoes of tea to Singapore for transhipment to England.

A LECTURE ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE GRAPE VINE. Delivered before the South Australian Literary Association, on Friday Evening, Oct. 9th. BY HENRY WATSON, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840

A LECTURE ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE GRAPE VINE. Delivered before the South Australian Literary   Association, on Friday Evening, Oct. 9th. BY HENRY WATSON, ESQ. It has frequently been to me a subject of regret that some of the most valuable resources of our favoured province remain undeveloped. Though possessing a soil and climate most congenial to the growth of fruits and flowers, a taste for gardening is far from being generally diffused amongst us. The gardens I see under cultivation are generally those of persons comparatively wealthy. I look in vain for the little plot of the country laborer or the mechanic. It is mournful to pass the courts of the unwhitewashed pize cottage, and to reflect that it would require but little trouble to fill them with stocks and mig-   nionette, and to train the rose and the vine over the porch. Miss Mitford, an acute observer of rural nature, asserts that these are never-failing indications of the character of the occupa...
