THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.-NO. 1. ENTOMOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.—No. 1. ENTOMOLOGY. NATURE AMATOR. Nov. 3, 1840. [We shall be glad to be regulary favored with these interesting notices.— Editors.] ACCORDING to promise, I will first give a brief outline of the various species of animals which inhabit this our verdant summer land, and then proceed to speak of the vast tribes if insect life that every where surround us. Almost every other part of the globe, except perhpas the sterile and unapproachable regions of the interior of Africa, has, through human exertions and the advance of civilization, long shewn to all the natural wonders or beauties it may possess; but this vast tract of land,   little less in its dimensions than the whole of Europe, is as yet but partially explored, though the indefatigable exertions which have lately been made to remove the dark curtain which has hitherto wrapped in doubt the nature of the immense extent of country that lies be- tween shore and shore, are fast diclosing...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."—SHAKSPERE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 November 1840

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records ."— SHAKSPERE. Henry Wotton died in 1639. M. S. Sir HENRY WOTTON, the author of the fol-   lowing beautiful lines, was for some time secre-   tary to the Earl of Essex. On the fall of his master he went to reside at Florence where he employed himself in writing a treatise on the state of Christendom. The Grand Duke of Tus-     cany having intercepted some letters disclosing a   plot against the life of James King of Scotland,   sent Wotton with the secret intelligence to that       prince. This service be performed in the guise of an Italian, and returned to Florence. When James came to the throne of England he sent for   Wotton, knighted him, and employed him as am- bassador to Venice. In consequence of an epigram which was represented to the King as reflecting upon state policy, he fell under his ...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE. We observe that orders have been given to Mr. Macdougall, printer of the Southern Australian, to pirate the property of the South Australian Gazette. Mr. Mac- dougall has accordingly published as nearly a facsimile of that journal as his     skill will permit, under the title of the "South Australian GOVERNMENT Ga- zette." The quibble of the title will nei- ther serve him nor his employer. The South Australian Gazette is the Govern ment Gazette, the copyright of which, from its establishment, has belonged to Messrs Robert Thomas & Co. As a proof of these facts, we refer to the imprint, and to the circumstance that in all Acts of Council hitherto passed, official notices are directed to be made in the "South   Australian Gazette." We recommend the injured parties at least to try if there be law sufficient in the colony to protect their property. That justice will be done by the authorities at home there is n...

SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

SUMMARY EXECUTION OF THE NATIVES. It gives us sincere pleasure to observe the manner in which the respectable and influential journals of Van Diemen's Land have supported our views in refer- encc to the summary execution of the natives. The Cornwall Chronicle and Murray's Review particularly are loud in their expressions of disgust and astonish- ment. The latter able journal has devo- ted nearly two pages to the details of the transaction, and has printed a large im pression for the purpose of circulation n England.

FLOUR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

FLOUR MILLS. It gives us great satisfaction to learn that Dr. Kent's flour mills at the Adelaide Steam Works (opposite the end of Rundle street) are nearly completed. Two pairs of French burr stones have arrived per   New Holland, from Sydney, and were yesterday brought to the mills, where, in the course of a few days, they will be placed. The whole mill will be ready to commence operations as soon as the crop is gathered. With a liberality which en- sures success, and distinguishes the man of business from the mere grasping spe- culator, it is our duty to record the fact that Dr Kent intends to manufacture the wheat at a rate which will allow him a moderate profit merely on the very heavy expenditure he has incurred—we believe, if possible, not to exceed three shillings per bushel. In Van Diemen's Land the   charges average, we think, about two shillings, and an additional shilling here, under all circumstances, is a most reason- able charge. The colonists...

FAILURE OF GOVERNOR GAWLER'S ATTEMPT ON THE LIBERTY OF THE PRESS-DISGRACEFUL VIOLATION OF PRIVATE RIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

FAILURE OF GOVERNOR GAWLER'S ATTEMPT ON THE LIBERTY OF THE PRESS—DISGRACEFUL VIO- LATION OF PRIVATE RIGHTS. THE sober and reflecting among our fel-   low colonists who have been the attentive observers of the more recent actions of Colonel Gawler, cannot have failed to arrive at the conviction that he was gra-   dually but decisively proving his unfitness for his position as the Governor of a free British colony. Within the last month, indeed, the evidence of this fact has be- come paiufully conclusive. With a perverseness of purpose—an ignorance of the commonest principles of political economy, which, were not grave interests at the mercy of a freak or a crotchet, would be almost laughable—   his Excellency proposed to prohibit the internal distillation of spirits, as a means to encourage the growth of the vine, and to induce the colonists of South Australia to become a wine consuming and a sober people—forgetting, in his plenitude of wisdom, ...

COLONIAL EXPENDITURE. SAFETY OF THE SELF-SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

COLONIAL EXPENDITURE. SAFETY OF THE SELF-SUPPORTING PRIN- CIPLE. BY recent advices from England, we learn that a considerable sensation had been created among the friends of South Aus-   tralia at the unexpectedly large amount of unauthorised expenditure for 1839. The Commissioners have thought it their duty to call the immediate attention of Her Majesty's Government to the subject, and the next vessel will probably bring some decisive communication on the point. The last dispatch, by the. Waterloo, merely stated that the matter was under consi- deration. We are, however, enabled to say, from good authority, that Governor Gawler's explanations, so far as they had transpired, were generally considered most unsatisfactory, and it was anxiously hoped that the fearful rate of expenditure of that year would not be continued for 1840; as the result would inevitably be the total swamping of the Emigration Fund, and of the whole resources at the disposal of the Commissioners. &...

IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT.— BANKRUPT LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT.— BANKRUPT LAWS. The delays which have taken place in the enactment of laws essential to the security of all commercial, and all ordinary trans-   actions of business, are hourly becoming more unjustifiable. Objects of the most vital importance to the well-being of the community, are shuffled off from day to day. Eighteen months ago, we were told that we could do without legislation, but not without land ; and though, thanks to the industry and energy of our able Sur- veyor-general, Lieut. Frome, land has been supplied for the last twelvemonth in abundance, legislation lags as usual. Our bankers complain that their desire to afford legitimate credit is defeated, be- cause the protection of the laws of Eng- land is denied them—our merchants are daily suffering serious losses from the same cause—the community is forced into unwilling distrust—unfortunate debtors are thrust, illegally, into prison —every     practicable disarrangement of the parliamen...

THE MEMORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

THE MEMORIAL. THE memorial agreed to by the colonists in January last has reached England, and created much speculation. Some appre-   hension was entertained regarding the proposed allowance of the expences of the Survey out of the Emigration Fund ; but considering its wholesale sacrifice by Go- vernor Gawler, the suggestion of the me- morial to allow ten per cent. only to be diverted from its legitimate end, was cautious and moderate enough. Regarding the claim of the colonists to a voice in the deliberations of the Co- lonial Council, there is not a dissentient voice; and it is probable by this time that body has been altogether remodelled. The following observations, so sound in themselves, and so peculiarly pertinent to the present position of the colony, we find in the South Australian Colonist of the 30th June, extracted from an able article in the British and Foreign Review, on the "Progress and Prospects of the   Self -supporting Emigration System....

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. We present our readers with a brief report of the proceedings of the fourth Annual Meeting, of this great and prosperous Company, held in London, on the 26th June, and we shall not fail when the more detailed account of the proceedings of that day reaches the Colony, to present oitr readers with a full report. It was of course to be expected that the prosperity of the Company should keep pace with that of the Province, and that it should reap the fair benefit of its early enterprise. But we do not think that the most sanguine among those in terested in the success of both, who are not upon the. spot, can form even a faint estimate; of what the splendid results of the current year are certain to be. The shares of the Company were but the other day at a discount; they are now at a con- siderable premium. In twelve months they will at least be doubled in value.

DISPATCH IN DISCHARGING CARGO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

DISPATCH IN DISCHARGING CARGO. As an instance of the facilities now afford-   ed for the discharge of cargoes at the New Port, we may allude to the discharg-   ing of our colonial trading schooner Waterwitch, Captain Talbert. This ves- sel was at the M'Laren Wharf at 6 o'clock last Saturday morning, at which time they commenced to discharge, and in ten hourse about one hundred and thirty tons were landed from her hold on the wharf. And not only this, but during the same time about four tons of bricks—outward cargo —were shipped on board the schooner. This vessel was discharged by a com- pany which has just been formed, under the name of the South Australian Shipping Company; who the same day also sent eighty tons of goods by dray to Adelaide. The whole expence of discharging the Waterwitch, was £3 10s. This, of course,   does not include the work of the hands belonging to the vessel or those employed by the Shipping Company. Where, we should li...

GENTLEMEN—I beg leave to call the atten-   tion of the public through the medium of your valuable journal to a case of gross irregularity in the dispatch of mails from this port, which, if persisted in, will be most detrimental to the commercial intersts of this provnce, and to say the least, most inconvenient to the merchants and others in the neighbouring colonies, and     other parts.

In common with many others, I   made large remittances by the Dorset, expect- ing her to sail immediately, according to the post-office announcement, and if she had sailed   at the time stated, she would have been in Sydney by this time.

About 5 o'clock P.M. of the above date, a policeman stationed at the point had occasion to come on board the Lalla Rookh, for some medicine for his wife, whom I had been attending for some days; this man in- formed me that a native woman, named Betty, had been shockingly cut on the head by a native man, known here by the name of Tom, belonging to the Big Murray Tribe; the policeman stated that he was sure she must be dead. I immediately went on shore, having taken dressings, &c., for the occasion. I found the poor young woman, who was not more than 17 or 18 years of ago, laying close...
