The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1840. OPENING OF THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 October 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1840. OPENING OF THE NEW PORT. On Wednesday last the New Port of Adelaide was opened by his Excellency Governor Gawler assisted by David MacLaren, Esquire, Manager of the South Australian Company, in the presence of the largest assembly of colonists ever congregated in South Australia, upwards of five thousand persons being present. We shall endeavour to give the fullest ac- count of the interesting ceremony that lies in our power; but it is with feelings somewhat akin to regret and disappointment that we admit the impossibility of conveying to the     distant reader either anything like an adequate conception of the scene itself, or of the causes which have made the removal from the old landing place— Port Misery— as Mr Horton   James not very untruly termed it—to spacious and commodious wharfs, accessible in all weather and at all times of tide—a subject of the deepest importance to every grad...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1840. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1840.     THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION.     In consequence of the omission we hinted at in   out last, the Municipal Election has been postponed for one week. An attempt has, we hear, been made to get up one or two electorial quorums. Whether it has been   successful or not will be shown on Thursday; but we must say, that we hope no serious   attempt will be made to force upon the Council   by this means persons who are objectionable to   the majority of the citizens. Indeed, Mr Rowland Hill's crotchet of allowing a minority a voice, seems likely to prove in its working little more than an excellent recipe for the   introduction of discord and dissension. It is in   this belief that we hope little encouragement will be given to the plan of foisting upon the coun- cil persons whom the ci...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We thank Q. for his humorous parady; but the truth is not worth the notice his clever rhymes would give it. The letter of a Briton is just received. We trust his will, on reflection, agree with us, that its publication now would tend unnecessarily to prolong a discussion   which were better closed. The want of room obliges us   us to exclude various articles and communications in type.

THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

THE NEW PORT. No act of Colonel Gawler's administration of   our colonial affairs has afforded a mroe striking proof of his anxiety to promote the intersts   and to consult the convenience of the public, than his recent determination to throw open, and to maintain free of toll, the new commu-   nication between the city and its port. Indeed,   we may say that his whole course connected with the colonial expenditure, has been singu-   larly wise and judicious. So far from pursuing   a desperate and reckless course, or bringing   the province to bankruptcy and ruin, as our far-sighted contemporary the Southern Aus- tralian asserts, by such liberal expenditure, he has, through it, in no small measure con- tributed to weathering triumphantly every storm that has hitherto threatened to impede its prosperous career. In particular, has he materially assisted the colony at those periods betwern the ex...

SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. It is far from our purpose to reiterate the opinions we entertain on the subject to which the following documents refer, or to utter a word calculated to continue or renew the excitement which the extra-judicial and sum- mary execution of the Big Murray Natives has occasioned. Our views of the transaction have already been sufficiently circulated— they remain unaltered—but it would be no creditable fulfilment of our duty, did we hesi- tate to make equally public the fact that senti- ments at variance with our own have been expressed by very many colonists, or that an address, approving of the Governor's proceed-   ings in the matter, has been numerously and   respectably signed. The following are the address, and His Excellency's answer to it:—   To His Excellency, Lieutenant Colonel George Gawler,   K. H., Governor and Commander in Chief of the       Province...

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—I am surprised that so little ge-     neral interst seems to be taken in the Natural History of this colony. It is true there is a Society established for the purpose of urging a spirit of inquiry into this delightful science, but that is all—no endeavours seem yet to be made     to forward these views. Of course one of the first objects of emigration     is to better your condition, and on arriving here, the some little time, more than a [?] at     the curiosities of the country would not be at-     tempted amidst the hurry and confusion of settling. But afterwards, I should think that at least once a week, one might examine [?]           of Nature where there are so many objects of admiration and research lying all around, adjacent...

LATEST FROM ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

LATEST FROM ENGLAND By way of Sydney we have English news to   the 18th June. The following are the only extracts we have rooms for to-day.—       LORD NORBURY'S MURDER.—Charles Kean has brought                 home from America a confession by two Irish railway labourers of the murder of Lord Norbury. These men   have since making their confession fled to [?], finding they would be given up by the American autho- rities.—Oxford Herald, May 13.   Cronviseur, Lord William Russell's valet, had been found guilty of the murder of that nobleman, and was   ordered for execution on the 22nd June. The death of the old King of Prussia, which was pre- maturely announced, occurred on the 7th June at Berlin. The Emperor of Russia came to take leave of him two hours before his death. His daughter the Emp...

PROGRESS OF DISOVERY [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY.       We have great pleasure in publishing the   following interesting Report of our excellent   Surveyor-general, Lieut. Frome, R. E., of the country in the neighbourhood of Lake Alex-       andrina, and around the newly discovered Lake Albert. The fact that 50,000 acres additional of agricultral land has been added to that district, is scarcely more important than the example which has been afforded of what   energy and ability can accomplish in a brief space. Lieut. Frome has not merely indi- vidually examined during the three wweeks he was absent this extensive tract, but the parties   under his directions have completed its survey,     thus rendering the discovery at once available to the public : — Surveyor General's Officer, 15th Oct; 1840.   SIR—I have the honor to forward for the infor...

PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

PORT LINCOLN. THURSDAY'S Gazette contains the following letter from Dr Harvey of Port Lincoln, con- taining the particulars of the melancholy murder (by this time it must be called so), of Mr Francis Hawson:— Port Lincoln, October 7, 1840. SIR—As the Emu is waiting only for Mr     Eyre's despatches, and it is uncertain if you will be able to hear from the Resident Magistrate by this mail, I consider it my duty to forward the present communication to you. Yesterday morning, I was called about two   o'clock, to attend Mr Hawson's son, who had   just arrived from the bush, where Mr H. has a   sheep station, having been speared by the natives.   I found him with two spears in the chest— both of which he said were barbed, and one of which had passed through to the back. I of course saw that death would instantly follow the withdrawal of them. I therefore thought it better to request the attendance of the surgeo...

No title [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

Captain Hall has a prickly pear bush on board the Guiana in vigorous health. In India it is used for hedges. It is of very speedy; growth, and may be termed invulnerable, as snakes will not attempt to penetrate where it is thickly set. If it can accommodate itself to the climate of the colony, it will be of great value for fencing. With just sufficient of a ditch to arrest the progress of fire, and a row of leaves (as every leaf will grow), planted on the top of the bank, in one year, (if it grows anything like it does in India), there would be a fence that neither horses,   cattle, sheep, pigs or even wild dogs would   attempt to pass through. — Chronicle. Stock, &c — In addition tot he valuable im- portations of superior breeds of cattle, sheep, &c. by Messrs Whitington & Co., they have just re- ceived by the Enterprise a fine horse, two of those useful animals called donkeys, and several fowls, among which are four peacocks and th...
