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

MUNCIPAL ELECTION. ADELAIDE has exhibited, during the last week, all the bustle and excitement which was to be expected from the first exercise of po-   pular representation within the province— and the first, we believe, that has been per- mitted within the Asiatic and Australian   possessions of the British crown. Meetings of the citizens were held on se- veral occasions during the last ten days, to prepare lists for the Common Council, and to arrange the business of the election. To these meetings—especially to the Tradesmen's As-   sociation—may be attributed, not merely the     order which prevailed during the election, but the     circumstance that a Council has been chosen possessing the confidence of the great majority of the inhabitants. The public is also very much indebted to Mr Stanley Stokes, the Returning Officer, for the excellency of his arrangements for the accommodation of the &nb...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1840. JUDGE COOPER'S CHARGE TO THE GRANI GRANI JURY SUMMARY EXECU TION OF THE NATIVES [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1840. JUDGE COOPER'S CHARGE TO THE   GRAND JURY. - SUMMARY EXECU- TION OF THE NATIVES THE declaration that the Big Murray natives were beyond the reach of ordinary British law, which Judge Cooper was reported to have made in Council, previous to the summary execution of that tribe, excited at the time in various quarters, not a little remark. We avoided noticing the circumstance at the   moment, chiefly because it appeared to us that the difficulty to which the Judge referred, was invaded in the inadmissibility of native evi-   dence in our Courts of Justice. His Honor,   however, has taken the opportunity of his   recent charge to the Grand Jury, fully to explain his views on the subject. The follow- ing are the Judge's remarks, of the correctness of which, as spoken, we have been at some pains to assure ourselves:—   "Before I direct your att...

PROHIBITION OF DISTILLATION AT SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

PROHIBITION OF DISTILLATION AT SYDNEY. GEORGE CIPPS, Governor. IT does not appear after all that the internal distillation of spirits has been prohibited in New South Wales. The following bill has just been introduced by the Governor:— A Bill to increase the Duty on Spirits distilled in New South Wales and its dependencies. WHEREAS, by an Act of the Governor and legis- lative council, passed in the third year of the Reign of Her Majesty Queen victoria, intituled, "An Act to consolidate and amend the Laws for     Distillation of Spirits in the Colony of New   South Wales, and for the issue of licences for     Distilling, Rectifying, and Compounding Spirits the rein, and for repeating certain Laws relating       thereto," it was amongst other things enacted, that from and after the first day of April, one thousand eight hundred and forty, there should be levied and collected upon al...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

NEW ZEALAND. (By order) SAMUEL REVANS, Secretary.   PATRICK JAMES TOD. WE have received New Zealand papers to the 15th September. It gives us very sincere pleasure to notice that the affairs of the new colony are gradually assuming a more satis- factory aspect. There is so much good snese in the following article in a recent number of the New Zealand Gazette (a journal con- ducted with great spirit and talent, and in   which, we imagine, we can occasionally re- cognize the hand of an old friend and zealous South Australian) that we cannot resist the satisfaction of transferring it to our columns. We take the opportunity at the same time of assuring our contemporary that he is altogether mistaken in supposing that any jealousy exists in South Australia towards New Zealand. We at least are not insensible to the fact that the success of any neighbouring colony cannot be otherwise than beneficial to all, and if we en- tertain any doubts of the triumphant progre...

NEWS FROM INDIA, CHINA, AND THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

NEWS FROM INDIA, CHINA, AND THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. BY the New Holland, arrived from Sydney on Thursday evening, and the Waterwitch, from Hobart Town, yesterday morning, we have our file of India papers to the 28th July,         from Swan River to the beginning of August, and from Sydney and Hobart Town to the 23d October. The Calcutta Courier has the only notice we find of the war in China:—   A private letter from Singapore has in it one sentence which we believe will be found eventually to be true— Communications from various parts of the China coasts convince us that the China Government does not know what we are, to itself is about. Either deceived by the long experience of our uniform submission to their prejedices and ignorances, they antici- pate a similar result now; or else, like all other persons of contracted mind, they have little faith in the existence of anything which they do not either see of feel.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

SYDNEY. FROM Sydney we have some what unsatisfactory accounts of the state of the money market;   but the depression is clearly nothing more than temporary. The following is an extract from a gentleman of great respectability, and may be relied on:— You can have no conception of the dreadful state things are in here. The banks have fearfully curtailed their discounts; consequently, all the merchants, from the highest to the lowest, are hard up for cash. Several failures have taken place, and more are expected; and business is, in fact, nearly at a standstill. You may imagine in what a state things are, when I tell you that it   is a positive fact, that one persons was paid thirty per cent     to discount some of his own paper. The following was the latest qualification on the markets:— THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1840. Flour at the Mills Fine. Seconds. Ration. Girard 21s. 18s. 15s. Cabia biscuit per cwt 28 22 Barker 21 18 15 (allowance o...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. THE monetary pressure in Van Diemen's Land has also been very severely felt. We agree, however, with the Courier and Review in the opinions expressed by them, that such pressure is but temporary. The following are extracts:— A universal panic appears to pervade the Money Market. The Banks for reasons best known to them- selves, have for some time past been curtailing their discounts, and a general pressure has consequently affec- ted the commercial and agricultural interests throughout the whole colony. In the midst of plenty, and with every   promise of a most abundant harvest this year, it was suddenly discovered by the force of some financial mi- croscope, that we were overtrading—that the specie was   not more than tenth of the paper afloat, and that the colony was in fact bankrupt. How it came to pass that this discovery was made just at the most prosperous period the colony has ever yet seen, and not at other times when bills were f...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

SWAN RIVER. Perth Gazette. WE regret to perceive that a bad spirit still exists among our western neighbours, towards their younger but more successful sister of South Australia. The following remarks in reference to the projected overland communi- cation with that settlement, display this feeling very strongly:—   Overland from King George's Sound, we have received papers from Adelaide, the amil having been obligingly   conveyed by Dr Harris. In these papers we find the pro- posal to open a communication between this and South Australia. The object, further than a general exploration of the country, appears undefined; therefore, to us, it seems of little interest, and the steady course of the colony should not be disturbed by such wild adventures. What is South Australia to us? They have their self-supporting system; they have revelled in [?] long enough;   and we ought not to be such fools as to be caught by a   mere puffing docu...

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. BEFORE HIS HONOR CHIEF JUSTICE COOPER. [Continued from the last page.] Friday, November 6. Henry Gorden, a man working in the Old Tiers, was indicted for stealing sundry articles of wear- ing apparel and a bag of flour, the property of one Peter Ford, a splitter in the Tiers. The Advocate General produced tbe evidence of the prosecutor and another witness to prove that his hut was robbed of the articles in question, and prisoner was found under a tree asleep fifty yards from the hut, with the articles by his side.   Mr Poulden, who appeared for the prisoner, brought forward two witnesses, who proved seeing the prisoner for some hours in the position in which he was seen, and that he was intoxicated, and also to seeing two men going down a gully near the hut, who the prisoner stated had brought the articles to him while asleep, requesting him to take care of the things for them. The Jury retired for 10 minutes, and returned a verdict of guilty, and he ...

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. BEFORE HIS HONOR CHIEF JUSTICE COOPER. Tuesday, November 3, 1840. THE Court met at ten o'clock. The calendar we regret to observe, is heavier than usual, chiefly in the more serious cases which owing to the witnes- ses from Port Phillip and else where not having been brought up in time, have stood over from the two previous sessions. The following is a list of the persons indicted, and the offences with which they are charged :— John Wilson and Edward Green—Stealing two horses   value £160, the property of Mrs Margaret Murdock,     January 11, 1840, at Mount Barker.   Joseph Stagg—For the wilful murder of John Gofton, near the Para river, in July, 1840.

Wednesday, November 6. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

Wednesday, November 6. Cornelius Donovan and James Williams were indicted for stealing a silver watch from the shop of Mr [?], Rundle-street, on the 26th August. From the evidence it appears that the prisoner Williams, nearly a stranger in the town, requested the other prisoner to show him a watchmaker's shop, as he wanted a glass fitted. They went to-       gether to Mr Wainwright's shop, then to Mr Griffins, and at length to the prosecutor's, where they remained for about ten minutes. The pro- secutor had occasion to turn his back, and while so doing, the watch was supposed to be taken. Dilligent search was made, but the watch was not   found, and prisoners were apprehended sometime     after leaving the shop. The jury found Donovan guilty, who was sentenced to sevey years' trans-     portation, but acquitted Williams, who apperas to   be an honest shepherd in the C...
