APPENDIX. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

APPENDIX. NOIE A.-I líate known many instances of natives who have been almost or quite civilised, being compelled by o'her natives to return to the bush ; more especially girls who have been betrothed in their infancy, -nd who, on approach ing the years of puberty, have been compelled by their husbands to join -them. For such persons ne protection is afforded by tbevBritrsh law. The natives themselves are aware of this, -and when the nr-f Indian labourers were-introduced into the colony of Western "Australia, some of the abori gin- » requested a settler in the*Vasse district to export them in a similar manner to another country, as they could there work and adop peaceful habits-witheut the fear of being sacrificed by-their fellows.

PORTLAND BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

PORTLAND BAY. A. gentleman who has lately arrived from the recently located district of Portland Bay, has communicated to us a few interesting points of information, by which it appears that a very beauti ful and fertile spot of country surrounds the site of the future township, limited however to a circle of a few miles. A stringy bark forest of forty miles in extent forms a belt between the port and the rich grazing lands beyond. The M essrs. Henty have succeeded in J making; a line of communication through this hitherto unattempted space of coun try, but have found thut a scarcity of water increases the difficulties of the route. Two water courses, consisting of a succession of water holes, intersect the forest at a distance of nearly fifteen miles the one from the other. Care must be taken by the traveller to ascer tain the exact position of these, for failing this supply, no other water will be discovered. Previous to the departure of our informant, the surveyors had laid out o...

SYDNEY. BY the overland mail to Port Phillip on the 2nd instant, the following communication was received from Sydney: Sydney, March 21, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

SYDNEY. BY the overland mail to Port Phillip on the 2nd instant, the following com munication was received from Svdney : Sjd«ey, March 21. 1840. *' With the exception of one incident Sydney has been very dull during the week. The Royal Hotel and Old Theatre are burnt down ; nothing: but the walls are left standing, and they are in such a precarious condition that it is not safe to commence to pull them down. ! Major Barney talks about blowing them '{ down with gunpowder. The tire origi ! nated in Mr. Blanch's stable, where a drunken ostler set tire to the straw. The stable was built against the uali of the hotel, which had a projecting roof to which the fire ascended, and in about three hours the whole of the damage was done. " The notorious John Thomas Wilson was seen near Manilla in the goo-l bri» Nereus, on a trading voyage among the Phillippine Island?,and in his usual blustering style asked the Captain of the Achilles whether he wanted any tiling, as he could supply him .* from...

THE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

- w - THE MARKETS. The price of bread, we have much pleasure in stating, has this week been considerably reduced. The 4lb loaf is now selling for ls 4tl to ls 8d ; and there is every prospect of a still farther reduction. Weare glad to perceive, too, that some of the bakers are adopt- ! ing the proper mode of disposing of this commodity,-viz, by weight. By this mode, if a loaf does not happen to weigh 2 or 4lbs, as the case may be, the purchaser will only have to pay for it tu proportion. Flour maintains our quotations. Sugar and Soap on the rise ; but fur ther supplies are shortly expected. Potatoes maintain their price; a fur ther supply is much needed. Fresh meat is plentiful, and in good 'condition, the recent rains having much improved the pasture.

MR.'M'LAREN'S QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

MR.'MCLAREN'S QUESTIONS. Question ll.-Are the hardships of 'first settlers, do you imagine, more or less than those experienced by settlers in our North American possessions? As to a comparison of the hardships endured by settler's in the colonies, much need not be said. The common sense of any man ought to be sufficient to convince him that they will vary very much with the habits of the emi grants. As no one should expect to lind in a new country the«onveniencies of an old one, so when parties are un accustomed to endurance, they must necessarily suffer considerably from the reduction of their accustomed delicacies. The labouring man only, who has wanted those things at home, finds his condition immediately impro ved in this respect. . In Canada and the adjoining pro vinces,'the country is wild, the winter cold intense, the labour immense in clearing the laud, the roads bad, and the distance between the settlers loca tions often very great. Arising "from these causes, will be the ...

MODERN ESQUIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

MODERN ESQUIRES. The title Esquire now so commonly adopted, hy servants out of place "et hoc genus omne," was originally used by the gentleman attendants of Knights. When the title or degree of knighthood was conferred upon a gentleman, he nominated either two or three young men of gentle blood as his Esquires, and the duty of those said Esquires was to attend their knight in the field, at the tournaments, at court, and on all public occasions. The nearest approach to the duty of an Esquire in modern times is that of Aide-de Camp. At present Knights of the superior orders, I appoint their Esquires when they are knighted. Knighthoods and Squire ships, were in their origin exclusively martial distinctions, they have since [ been conferred upon civilians as re wards of merit. Ex-officio Enquires, comprehend Judges, Sergeants at Law, ¡ Barristers at Law, Attornies at Law, Admirals, Generals, Captains of the Navy, Colonels and Lieutenant-Col onels of the Army, Commanders; of the Navy, Ma...

OUR English papers are up to the latter eud of December, but, with the excep tion of the projected marriage of the Queen, they contain bot little intelli gence. Full particulars of this will bo. found in another part of our paper. The omission of the notice, als to Prince Albert's religion, in the formal announcement of the intended marriäge, was a perfect god-send to the Tories ; a matter which the Times, and several of its coadjutors, have thought of suffi cient importance to honour with lead ing articles, and lengthened quotations from the Act of Settlement. As might be expected, however, this proves another "mare's nest." PRINCE A LBERT-=-even upon the shewing of the Toi y organs themselves-turns out to be a staunch and thorough-going Protestant. The day for the celebration of the nuptials had not been fixed at the date of our...

BEAUTIES OF THE PORT PHILLIP GAZETTE. WE had, some weeks ago, marked tbe following passages in the Port Phillip Gazette, but were unable to secure their insertion from want of space. Here they are, however, unencumbered with any comment of ours : " In Australia Felix, professedly ander a Ruler, having the powers of Lieutenant Governor, the inhabitants have no circuit court for the trial of either civil or criminal cases; no local court for the registry of land ; no local court for the registry of intestate property : no local court of appeal against the machinations of fraudulent creditors; no coroners, no sheriffs, and no officers of military jurisdiction. There is indeed a police office and a court of quarter sessions : from the first there is little or no redress to he obtained, simply from the wretched supply of physical agency at its command-; and with regard to the second there is no previous appeal permitted by the accused to the Attorney General, as grand Jnry of the provinc...

CAPTAIN GREY'S SUGGESTIONS AS To THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 April 1840

CAPTAIN GREY'S SUGGESTIONS AS TO THE NATIVES. The following has already been put on record per favour of his Excellency THE GOVER NOR — but without pledging ourselves for the accuracy of Captain Grey's views and sentiments upon the subject, — a subject upon which he seems to be partially informed — we transfer it to our columns. Suggestions with reference to the practicability of improving the moral and social condition of the Aboriginal Inhabitants of Australia. By Captain George Grey, 83rd Regiment. The whole of this report has been drawn up upon the supposition that the Aboriginal inhabi- tants of Australia are naturally perfectly capable of being civilised — yet if it is true that such is the case, that the natives of Australia are capable of being civilised, when it is notorious that so many efforts, founded upon various systems, have been made, in the hope of attaining this desirable object, all of which have hitherto failed, it can of course be shewn either that all these sys...
