ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (From papers up to the 3rd July.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (From papers up to the 3rd July.) In the House of Commons, on the 30th June, Mr. Fitzroy Kelly obtained leave to bring in his bill for the abolition of capital punishment excect in cases of high treason and murder. This stage of the proceedings was got over, as it commonly is, with very little debate; but in the further progress of the measure, discussions of the highest interest may be expected to arise. TREATY WITH FRANCE.—In the House of Commons on the 22d June last, Mr Mackinnon said thai, as it was understood that this country was on the eve of con- cluding a commercial treaty with France, by which the duty on French wines would be reduced, he asked whether, in the event of that treaty taking place, and a reduction   of duty ensuing on French wines imported into this coun- try, if it was the intention of the governor to make a proportionate reduction of the duty on the wines from other countries—from Spain and Portugal, and also on Cape wine? Mr L...

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

FRANCE. TOULON JUNE 21.-The army has passed through the valley of the Chelif, as far as Medeah. The Emir attacked us several times with considerable forces, but was constantly repulsed. To-day I have gained occupa- tiod of the Teniah del Moutaria, by the south, in fare of   all the forces of Abel-el-Kader. Our rear guard were violently attacked, but every preparation was made to beat off the army. A sanguinary and glorious battle took place. The enemy were overthrown by the bayonet, and retired after experiencing considerable losses. We have had twelve or fifteen men killed, and 260 wounded. I am continuing my operations for completing the victualling of   Medeah and Millana.—Extract of a Letter of the above date. PARIS, JUNE 24.—When the regiments which are or- dered to Algiera have arrived at their destination, the army in Africa will consist of 14 regiments of the line; of the foreign legion; of five regiments of light infantry; of the regiment of the Zo...

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

SYDNEY. THE New Holland brings Sydney papers to the 24th ult., having had a fine run of eleven days. Money matters continue in a most unsatisfac-   tory state, but the arrival of a Loan Company with a large amount of capital it was hoped would restore things to their former footing. It appears that the country is sadly infested with bushrangers in every direction. The fol- lowing extracts regarding these desperadoes may serve as a specimen:— BATHURST.—The Bathurst and Wellington districts continue to suffer much from the band of marauders who now infest these localities. On Friday last, an overseer   shot one of these ruffians near Wellington, who died   from the effects of the wound a few hours afterwards. One   of the mounted policemen in the district was severely wounded in the shoulder by one of the band, but, hap- pily is fast recovering. No later than yesterday, a con- stable was shot dead within two miles of the township. &a...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

PORT PHILLIP. We have received files of Port Phillip papers to the 9th instant. The Phillipians are apparently very indignant at the increased upset price which has been placed upon the Crown Lands by Sir George Gipps, and a public meeting of the inhabi- tants has been called to remonstrate against the rise in the minimum price of the Crown Lands to be offered for sale in December next. We give the following extracts:— CROWN LANDS AT PORT PHILLIP.—The most extensive   sale of lands that ever took place in this colony will be held at Melbourne in December next. From a rough calculation, we make the upset price of land upwards of £97,000; viz.—eight hundred and thirty-five acres at   £10; one thousand seven hundred and sixty-eight acres   at £5; three hundred and twenty acres at £3; sixteen hundred and seventy-nine acres at £2 10s.; six hundred and eighty-eight acres at £2; five thousand seven hundred and seventy-five acres at £1 10s.; four thous...

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

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. The Fourth Annual General Meeting of this Company was held on Friday, June 26, at their offices, No. 4. New Broad-street. George Fife Angas, Esq., on taking the chair, observed, that in introducing the business of the meeting, he would briefly allude to the Company's   present prosperous position, and the flourishing       state of the colony. Both had been attacked, as misrepresentations had been freely circulated against South Australia, and efforts made to de- preciate the Company's property by erroneous   quotations of its shares; but both had stood the test of enquiry. The Company's former ob- stacles were surmounted; all its operations were     now well managed by qualified agents, and its shares were rising rapidly, whilst the colony   itself was continually progressing, and constant   accessions were being made to its inhabitants, qua...

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. BEFORS HIS HONOR CHIEF JUSTICE COOPER. Saturday, November 7. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 November 1840

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. BEFORE HIS HONOR CHIEF JUSTICE COOPER. Saturday, November 7. Robert Parkes was indicted for feloniously stealing from the warehouse of Mr. Salter, then in Carrington-place, two packets of thread, value 6d., and a case of wearing apparel, value £100, in England. The Advocate General, in opening the case, stated that this was one of circumstantial evidence entirely. The circumstances were singular, but established the moral guilt of the prisoner. The warehouse was broken open on the 4th August, and a case lined with tin containing the thread was also opened. Spots of blood were found on the tin case, as also corresponding spots on the thread found under a bed in the house of Joseph Hatfield, Weymouthst-street, which bed was sup- posed to be the prisoner's. The most suspicious circumstance in the whole was the prisoner's having a cut finger, evidently done with a blunt instrument. Mr William Salter deposed to the principal of the above facts; and policemen Moore and ...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1840. GOVERNOR GAWLER AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1840. GOVERNOR GAWLER AND THE PRESS. THE strange rigmarole of yesterday's Southern Australian has this consistency, at least, throughout—the paints of the slightest im-   portance to Governor Gawler's justification are sedulously advoided—while those whose relation to the matter at issue resemble the   connection between Tenterden steeple and the Goodwin Sands, are very emphatically in-   sisted upon. Before noticing the points in which the   public can be supposed to have any substantial interest, we must be permitted to do an act of justice to Governor Gawler personally. The allusion to the sale of his private property to     his new supporter made in the narrative con-   necting the correspondence with Messrs R. Thomas and co., was evidently calculated only to show how he had been privately brought into contract with the indivi...

FINANCIAL POSITION OF THE GO- VERMENT— PROTEST AGAINST FRESH BURDENS ON THE COLONY. In the Chronicle of Wednesday last, we find the following important announcements:— By the Diadem, arrived on Monday evening, letters and papers to the 23rd of July have been received. The extracts from the latest papers will be found in another column. The Colonitation Commissioners have put forth the following notice of a loan for 120,000l which, with the 80,000l already borrowed, com-   pletes the sum of 200,000l. which they are al-   lowed to raise under the South Australian Act:—   Her Majesty's Colonization Commissioners for South Australia hereby give notice, that in pursuance of the acts, 4 and 5 William IV, cap. 95, and 1 and 2 Victoria cap. 60, they will be prepared on Monday, the 3d of August next, at one o'clock, to receive Tenders from parties willing to Contract for a Loan of One Hundred and Twenty Thousand Pounds, to be secured upon the ordinary r...

IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT. It gives us much satisfaction to learn that the notice we gave in our last of the case of the debtors confined in the wretched hovel called a Jail, has attracted very general appro- val, and is likely to lead, without much more procrastination, to the enactment of a Bank- ruptcy and Insolvent law. The following paper has been presented to the Governor, in reply   to the taunts contained in the ill-considered letter of His Excellency's Private Secretary, which we published in our last. It seems to us the most indefensible—we would almost say, the most criminal system ever tolerated in a civilised community, to allow, unre- stricted, the abolished law of Imprisonment for Debt, while none of the recognised means   are adopted by which the destitute Bankrupt or Insolvent could regain his personal liberty. It is a sad illustration of the position of the Colony, in respect to the legislative capabili- ties of its Council, when an Act, dicta...

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY.—THIS YEAR'S CLIP OF WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY.—THIS YEAR'S CLIP OF WOOL. It is somewhat mortifying to find, occasionally in quarters which ought to be in possession of correct information, the most singular lack of knowledge of facts connected with the actual condition and progress of the Colony. A re- markable instance of this has just fallen under notice. In the annual report of the South Australian Company, the whole of this year's clip of wool, including that of the flocks belong- ing to the Company, is estimated somewhere about four hundred bales. Now we are sure none will be more gratified than the gentlemen who have put forth that statement, with the contradiction to it which it is in our power to give. The wool which will be sent home by the South Australian Company alone, the pro- duce of its flocks, will exceed three hundred bales; and from all the information we can collect at this moment, we can confidently state that the return of this season, of the whole Colony, will not be less than three ...

IMPORTATION OF VINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

IMPORTATION OF VINES. THE Committee of subscribers to the Vine Importation Association has resolved to send to the Cape of Good Hope for half a million of vine cuttings, and has appointed Mr. Caw- thorne, recently form that settlement, and who is about to return to it for his family, as their agent, paying him £200 for his trouble. We cannot say that this is a wise or satisfactory arrangement. The proposed expence of an agent we think altogether unjustifiable. Vine cuttings are almost valueless at the Cape, and we are well assured that were half the sum proposed remitted to the agents for the Com- missioners—Messrs Borrodaile—it would be suflicient to enable them to pay a qualified agent on the spot for his trouble in selecting the vines, as well as their original cost, and all packing and shipping charges into the bargain. This plan, we believe, has already been adopted by a private individual, who has ordered 250,000 cuttings to be sent by the first ship that touches at the Cape b...

THE CONVICT STAGG. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

THE CONVICT STAGG. On Wednesday, Joseph Stagg, a runaway convict from Van Diemen's Land, who was convicted on Friday last week of the murder of John Gofton, suffered death. Our readers are aware from the report of the trial (see last weeks Register) that the evidence against Stagg was altogether circum- stantial, and though we have, personally, no doubt of the man's guilt, still, the case was precisely of that character in which is is dan- gerous to exact the extreme penalty of the law. Circumstantial evidence, to be conclu- sive, ought to possess the important condition that it was impossible for any other but the individual implicated to have committed the crime. On a careful review of the evidence, we confess that this condition is not satis- factorily made out, and that, notwithstanding the general and intimate conviction that he was the actual criminal, it would have been advisable to spare his life The man denied from the first moment to his last that he was guilty, and to say...

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL Thursday, November 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL Thursday, November 19. The Mayor stated to the Council that he had communicated with his Excellency on the subject of the cattle and other markets, and his Excel- lency was desirous that the Corporation should immediately take them under their charge. He     then read to to the Council a letter which he had that morning received from the Private Secretary, of which the following is a copy:—   Private Secretary's Office, Nov, 18. SIR—Several of the inhabitants of Adelaide, residing on or near to the West-terrace, having   addressed the Governor by petition, praying that the cattle and sheep market may be established on the spot originally set apart by Colonel Light, and delineated on the first plan of Adelaide as the market place, I am instructed to acquaint your Worship that his Excellency is disposed to place the management and control of the markets of Adelaide entirely in the hands of the Municipal Corporation....

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. We are, &c., V. & E. SOLOMON. Adelaide, Nov. 18, 1840. [A. J. M. will see that the above answers the purpose intended by his letter.— Editors.] GENTLEMEN—In your valuable journal of Saturday last, we observe an article signed A Merchant, commenting in severe terms on the non-sailing of the Dorset at the time appointed;   and also stating that the mail was on board and detained from the time of its being made up un- til the writing of the article in question. Now all we can say on the subject is, that be the writer who he may, he has been misinformed; for not   one single letter was put on board from the Post Office until Monday evening last, at seven o'clock; so far no blame can be attached to the ship. We would strongly advise A Merchant not to put the name of the ship on the letters he may have occasion to put through the post, for he may depend upon it that it does not lie in the power of t...
