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

THE NEW PORT. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) THIS most important undertaking, the pro-   ceedings at the opening of which we gave hurriedly, but we believe pretty correctly last week, is now fully available to the public,a nd several vessels are at this moment alongside the wharf discharging their several cargoes. The Government have, we understand, taken the whole of the ground floor of the Company's warehouse, for a bonded store ; and Mr McLaren has determined to lease the two upper flats to one or two tenants, for a term of years. Last work our time and space was so limited that we could not give anything like an account of the persons present at the opening of the port, but we have now the pleasure of giving the names as correctly as we possibly can of those ladies and gentlemen who were invited, and most of whom were present on that auspicious occasion :— Allan, Mrs John Anstey, Mrs August, Mrs August, Miss Alexander, Mrs Andrews, Mrs Bayley, Mrs Beard, Miss Bennett...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 October 1840

NEW SOUTH WALES. By the Dorset we have received our Sydney files up to the 3rd October inclusive. From   these it is gratifying to observe that flour has at last fallen, as we all along said it would, to   something like a moderate price—namely, £24     to £25 per ton. The Volanta had arrived from Valparaiso with 10,700 bushels of wheat; the Orrana,   from Talenhana, with 6000 bushels wheat and       230 bags flour; the Arkerright, with 20,000 bushels, and the Cicoque, from Calcutta, with 6000 bushels and 200 barrels flour. Be- sides these large importations, numerous other arrivals are daily looked for, while the corps       in New South Wales promised to be so abun- dant that it was feared labourers would not be     found to reap them. Our limited space to-day procludes us giving any extracts from the papers. Money...

PRESENT STATE OF THE AUSTRALIAN TRALIAN COLONEL. RECENT private advices from Sydney re re-   sent the monetar affairs of that colony as in a less satisfactory state than usual and we find in a late member of the Australian the fol- lowing rational, an, as far as we can venture   to judge at this distance, apparently correct   account of its actual position:—               "MONEY.—We are most unwilling to return to         the thrice told tale, of the [?] state of our trade just now, and of our money market in   particular.

CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 October 1840

CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. WE have this day for the first time visited this elegant structure, and we gladly avail our-   selves of the opportunity to call the attention of the public to a building which might do credit to the metropolis of the mother country. The length of the building in its interior is 61   feet; it is 40ft in breadth, and in height 25ft. The order is the Ionic, and the pilasters and the architraves of the front are in excellent proportion and well executed in stone. We have seldom been better satisfied with the   fitting up of the interior of a chuch, than with that to which we now call the attention of our readers. The pulpit is singularly elegant, and admirably adapted for public speaking. It is of on octagonal form—the pannels richly carved and supported by an Ionic column eight feet in height. In the pewing, the architect   has introduced the mode recently adopted in England. The back of the pews are at an obtuse angle with the seats, instead of hav...

THE MOORGATE-STREET BANK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 October 1840

THE MOORGATE-STREET BANK. WE observe, from the following notice, and Mr. Gouger's advertisement, that the Moorgate-   street concern has at length been fairly knocked on the head—in Adelaide, at least—and that Messrs Boucher and Milne, whose exploits in the way of agricultural schemes and bubble deposits at 40 per cent. interest, we have before demolished, must a second time "serve to     EXHIBIT." It is our duty, also, to caution   the public against taking any drafts on the British and Australasian Bank, signed by C. Boucher as their agent, which drafts, we un- derstand, that individual or Milne are hawking about. A merchant, we are informed, was   offered bills of this description, the other day, to the amount of £5000 for the sum of £1000 cash—a circumstance sufficient to prove that they are worth no more than the paper on which they are engraved. (From the Chronicle) BRITISH AND AUSTRALASIAN BANK—We di- &n...

OFFICIAL ENQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 October 1840

OFFICIAL ENQUIRY. A court of Enquiry into certain charges pre-   ferred by Dr. Litchfield, Inspector of Hospitals, against the Hon. Robert Gouger, Colonist Secre-   tary, commenced its sittings yesterday. The charge, we are informed, has reference to the fracas mentioned by the Southern Austrlian, as having taken place in April or May last, in the Colonial Secretary's office. The board consists of Capt. Sturt (Assistant Commissioner), Mr Smillie, jun (Advocate General), and Lieut. Frome, R. E. (Surveyor General), Dr Litchfield, Mr Gouger, Mr Pierce, Mr Barnard, Mr Tolmer, and several others were examined yesterday, and and the board continues its sitting to-day.     Although we shall not fail to communicate the results of this investigation to our readers, we cannot help expressing our regret that the time of the members of the Council, at this juncture so much required for the progress of public business, should be occupied with s...

THE VINE. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 October 1840

THE VINE. To the Editors of the South Australian Register . Your constant reader, J. W. [We took the quotation as we found it in Mr Watson's lecture; but our correspondent's text is the correct one.— Editors ] GENTLEMEN—There is no one who delights in the primitive and unsophisticated pleasures of gardening but who was pleased with Mr. Watson's lecture on the Vine, as lately published in your in- valuable journal. Allow me to put one question regarding it—not as to the subject matter of the lecture, but as to one of the quotations with which it is so happily illustrated. Mr Watson says—" So high do I estimate the grape bearing capability of the province, that if we can only get cuttings of the right sort, I do not despair of seeing our colony rivaling that memorable country we rend of where 'they cut down a branch with four clusters of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff.'

IRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 October 1840

IRRIGATION. WE beg to direct the attention of our agricultural readers to the following account of a recent im-   portant invention connected with irrigation, for which we are indebted to the Sydney Herald. When we have a sufficiency of labour in this   colony, the settlers will doubtless turn their at- tention to the practice of irrigation which in many parts of the colony, (the banks of the Nepean, or Hunter, for instance) could be carried into effect, although with difficulty, the level of water in   the river being generally for below the land to be irrigated, and we have therefore much pleasure in drawing public attention to a newly invented ma- chine, called "Holt's Patent Hydraulic Belt or   water Elevator." The following is en extract from the prospectus—."This very important in- vention is at once simple and powerful. It consists of an endless wooden band or belt, passing over two plain rollers, one fixed at the top of the...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 October 1840

NEW ZEALAND. We have received New Zealand papers to the 5th September, from which we extract the following. It gives us very sincere pleasure to observe that matters in the new settlement are assuming a more favorable appearance. We particularly rejoice at the coup de grace which has been given to the French attempt to inter- fere with the colonization of New Zealand:—   THE CHATHAM ISLANDS.—The New Zealand Com-   pnay's barque Cuba has returned to Port Nicholson from the Chatham Islands. Mr Hanson, the Company's Agent,     has secceeded in purchasing the whole of that group of Islands for the Company. He describes Chatham Island, the largest of the group, and the only one that he visited, as containing about 500,000 acres. The land is generally fertile, and the appearance of the country partakes more of the character of an English landscape than any part of New Zealand which he has visited. The hills are of moderate elevation and ...

MARKETS. ADELAIDE, OCTOBER 26. THE intelligence from Sydney, per Dorset, has had the effect of reducing considerably the price of flour.

The wheat market has been unusually dull during the present week, and very little has been effected. The Hobart Town millers' quotations show a decline of 1s. per bushel, since   our last publication. Buyers and sellers appear to have been waiting for the next arrival from Sydney to know what to be at. They have not been kept long in suspense. The Abercromblie came into port this morning, and both private letters and public papers concur in fixing the price of Wheat there at 9s. per bushel.—Colonial Times, Oct. 3.
