SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 January 1851

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have received South Australian papers up to the 4th instant. The following parti- culars are gleaned from the Adelaide Times The Census for 1851 has been taken, but it is complained that census papers were not left at the residences of certain families in Adelaide, of which the Editor of the Times speaks from personal knowledge, and thence naturally infers that the new Census will not be very perfect. The election of Road Boards for 1S51 took place on the 1st instant; but the sixteen had fallen into such disrepute with the inhabitants, that in some instances a sufficient number of electors could not be procured to carry out the election, there being, for instanee, only one voter in attendance in the Adelaide dis- trict. .Some apprehensions were entertained relative to the safety of the Cindaltar, several articles belonging to that vessel, as evidenced by the name being written on them, having been picked up on the coast, between Glen- elg and Schnapper's Point. ....

In pursuance of the design mentioned in that circular, the present meeting had assembled. He believed that some cavil had been mude nt the meeting because it was not an open one ; but after so much had been said upon the question at issue-in the press and in conversation-the arguments on both sides must now be familar to almost every person, and under these circumstances he conceived ic better to call the meeting ns the present one had been called then to give an oppor- tunity for thc recurrence of such things as, he was informed, happened last year at Ipswich, (tlenr, hear.) The cause of th« Act of Parliament plainly marked out what was to be done to obtain separation, and the inhabitants lind resolved into two parties-the one favourable to separation with exiles, and the other unfavourable thereto. And he thought that any person who looked nt thc signatures on the parch- ments lying upon the table before him must acknowledge that they had an overwhelming maj irity on their side. (...

Original Correspondence. MR. COUNCILLOR JOSEPH SIMMONS AND ! THE MAYORALTY. A second Daniel. A Daniel, Joe !-SHAKSPEARE. His fortuue swells him.-MASSINGER. To the Editor of The Empire. SIB,-It is written that there is hut one step from the sublime to the ridiculous. The translation of Mr. Joseph Simmons from the exalted and sub- lime arena-the stage of the Victoria Theatre to the floor of the City Council Chamber, exhibits a rare exemplification "of the adage. It is ridiculously amusing to see this "hero of a thousand fights " (melo-dramatic) courting no- toriety by bringing forward a resolution, which has for its object nothing more or less than call- ing for an expression of contempt for the decision of the highest tribunal in the colony. The distinguished Councillor, in his capacity of delegate from a certain enlightened portion of the electors, and having a due regard for the honour and dignity (save the mark !) of the civic chair, brings forward his resolution on public grounds...

THE EMPIRE. MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 1851. THE ANTI-TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE'S REPORT-THE MORETON BAY MEETING. ON the 8th of the present month, two public documents of some importance, as bearing upon the great Australian ques- tion of Transportation from the Mother Country, were put forth by the colonists of New South Wales. They emanate from two portions of the Colony very differ- ently circumstanced, and they are intended to have very opposite biasses in the settle- ment of the momentous question at issue. On the day named, the Sydney Associa- tion for preventing the revival of Trans- portation, published its argumentative and masterly Report, detailing the compre- hensive plans originated, and in the course of being carried out, at great cost of time, and with no common energy and talent, to free this Colony for ever from the evils of convictism. On the same day a meet- ing of "wealthy and influential" residents   at Moreton Bay, exultingly pronounced by the speakers to ...
