To tin Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, October 27, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, October 27, 1840. Yours &c., ONE WHO INTENDS TO FENCE. GENTLEMEN—Having read over our Fencing Act, I think it excellent—particularly the leading feature—yet there appears an omission in not having stated upon what line a boundary fence   may, or shall, be erected. If, for instance, I may be disposed to have what is called a ditch and bank fence (it being the cheapest, most durable, and what is still better, a preventative of fire, to which our crops we subject in summer time), there arises in my mind, two questions—first, as to whether I have a right to make use of my neighbour's land for a part of such fence—secondly, whether I make use of the public road for the same; with regard to the first, I would have the inner line of the dyke as the boundary line, as in that case the bank would be on one property, and the ditch on the other; for   I think it enough for a person to lay out his capita...

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY —No.2. ENTOMOLOGY—COLEOPTERA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY —No. 2. ENTOMOLOGY—COLEOPTERA. NATURAE AMATOR. Nov. 18, 1840. Their shape would make them, had they bulk and size, More hideous foes than fancy can devise, With helmet-heads, and drag on scales adorned, The mighty myriads, now sccurely scorned, Would mock the majesty of man's high birth, Despise his bulwarks, and unpeople earth. I will first notice the supposed amount of species of this order of insects now existing on   the rurfucc of the earth, and then mention from observation some of their peculiarities least touched on by Naturalists. The ideas of different Entomologist, of the of the supposed number of sppcies of Coleoptera contained in the whole of our globe differ very much. In Britain alone there are nearly 4000 known species, and the rest of Europe has now disclosed about 12,000 additional kinds. In the often quoted collection of the Count de Jean at     Paris, some years back, there were 20,000 distr...

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

THE NATIVES. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. SIR—As the character and habits of the abo- rigines of this province do not appear to be so well understood as could be wished, even by those who have taken some trouble to become acquain- ted with them, I shall endeavour to give you the result of an experience and of opportunities   which very few have had to so great an extent, amongst that portion of them which is justly es- teemed the most intelligent and hopeful of the Australian races. I shall offer some preliminary   observations, which, if you think them worth notice, will be followed in another number, by a   sketch of such customs as I have been able to ob-   serve, and which may throw light on the native character and suspenstitions. The interest I have felt in pursuing these enquiries has been very great, and the difficulty with which the securing the confidence of a savage people is attended, has been amply ...

ENGLISH ENTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

ENGLISH ENTRACTS. The Journal du Havre of July 6, announces that the   draught of the deed of settlement for the Anglo-French Company for establishing the line of steam packets between Havre and New York, having been submitted to   the merchants, and deposited at the Bank of M. Dubois,   received in three days the signatures of subscribers to the amount of 800,000f., and adds that subscriptions to the   amount of 200,000f. more have been promised. The Paris papers of July 10 have arrived in due course. They state that the mediation of France between the   Courts of London and Naples had produced the desired result. The terms proposed by France had been accepted by both Powers. The ratification of the treaty by the   British Government arrived in Paris on Thursday, and was   immediately signed by the Duke de Serra Capriola (the Neapolitan Ambassador) in the name of his Sovereign. A courier with the intellig...

TRIAL OF OXFORD FOR HIGH TREASON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

TRIAL OF OXFORD FOR HIGH TREASON. This trial came on the 10th and 11th July, and occu-   pied the greater part of two days. After the evidence for and against the prisoner had been gone into at great length— The jury retired to consider the verdict, and having been absent from the court about three-quarters of an hour, they returned the following special verdict:—     "We find the prisoner guilty of discharging the con-       tents of two pistols, but whether or not they were loaded with ball has not been satisfactorily proved to us, he being of unsound state of mind at the time." The Attorney-General, as soon as their verdict was delivered, referred their Lordships to an act of Parlia- ment, the 40th of George III. which provides that per- sons acquitted on the grounds of humanity had he impris-   oned during His Majesty's pleasure. The learned gen-   tlemen said he presumed that...

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Times, July 8th.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Times, July 8th.) IN the House of Commons last night, after the disposal of some private business, the House proceeded to the discussion of Lord ELIOT'S motion for a select committee on the colonization of New Zealand. His Lordship in- sisted on the importance of emigration as a resource for     the labour which was now unable to find employment in this country. New Zealand was a part of our colonial empire to which he thought this emigration might be use- fully directed; but the disposition lately evinced by the Colonial-office to abandon the landed titles of the British Crown in that territory had encouraged foreigners to     make attempts at occupations there which were likely to conflict with the interests of this country. New Zealand was now a place of refuge for runaway convicts and de- serters. Some regular government was necessary to pro-   tect both the settlers and aborigines against th...

TREATY BETWEEN AND BRITAIN. (From the Times, June 13th.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

TREATY BETWEEN FRANCE AND BRITAIN. (From the Times, June 13th.) THE Constitutiionell of July 11 at length notices the negotiations between the British and French Govern-   ments for a commercial treaty. It does not, indeed, announce anything which has not been already stated, but the article is important on account of its semi-   officiality. It says—"The treaty of commerce between France and England is virtually concluded. Two ar- ticles, respecting which modifications of the tariff had     been proposed, had encountered some hesitation on the part of the English Commissioners; but these modifica-   tions, which had not been anticipated in the instructions     of the English Cabinet, are now adopted, and Mr Porter has returned to England to obtain the ratifications of his Government. The treaty assures real advantages to France. A considerable reduction of the duty on wines opens a new market...

FACTS, FANCIES. AND RECOLLECTIONS "Trivial fond records."-SHAKSPERE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."—SHAKSPERE. BURIDAN'S ASS.—The celebrated sophism known by this name is thus described by Bayle. They who hold free will, properly so called, admit a power in man of determining himself, either to the right or to the left, even when the motives are exactly equal from the [?] opposite objects;   for they pretend that our soul can say, without any other reason than to make use of its liberty— I choose this rather than that, though I see nothing more worthy of my choice in this than in that. But they do not give that power to beasts;   they suppose that the latter could not determine themselves, if the objects were present, which drew them with equal force opposing wways; that, for example, a hungry ass would starve between two bushels of oats, which acted equally on his faculties; for having no reason to prefer the one to the other, he would remain immoveable, like a   piece of iron betwee...

NAPLES. (From the Times, 8th July.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 21 November 1840

NAPLES. (From the Times, 8th July.) MUCH dissatisfaction is still expressed by the British merchants at the unpromising state in which the sul-     phur question remains, apparently as far from a settle-   ment as ever. A correspondent, opportunely enough, has sent a brief and excellent view of the the pro- ceedings that took place, from the first notion of the         company in Sicily to the time when the question was first taken up by the Government. The speech of Lord Lyndhurst seems first to have rendered it a sub- ject of general interest, and yet for nearly two years     the affair was in consideration in Sicily. In July, 1838, the completion of a treaty with Taix & Co. was an- nounced as about to take place in the beginning of the month following, only one month's notice being given to the miners to fulfil their engagements. The British Charge d' Affai...

I remain, Dear Sir, Yours truly, GEORGE HALL. Believe me, Dear Sir, Yours truly, GEO. STEVENSON. WE trust a very brief notice will be sufficient to say all we intend to say on the subject of Governor Gawler's attempt to control the fair and honest expression of public opinion through the medium of the Press. Higher interests than those of merely personal defence against attacks equally malignant and ludicrous, the conviction that the question of right or pro- perty must be finally settled in England, and the knowledge that political events of the greatest importance to the future well-being of the colony are in the course of rapid develop- ment, combine to induce us to refrain from continuing the discussion of subjects from which no practical public good can result, and upon which, in point of fact, the ...

AGRICULTURAL MEETING. know each other.— I remain, &c. WILLIAN PINKERTON. Studley, Nov. 25, 1840. The first Agricultural Meeting of South Aus-   tralia is to take place, on Tuesday week, the 8th December. That it will be attended by every settler interested in agriculture, or in the breeding and improving of cattle and sheep —by every person anxious for the prosperity   of the province, and desirous to promote as speedily as possible the development of its un- bounded resources—we do not permit ourselves to entertain a doubt. The following letter accords so entirely with our own views that we willingly insert it here :—   To the Agriculturists of South Australia A meeting of those interested in the agriculture of South Australia being advertised to take place on Tuesday, the 8th December, I beg to call the attention of my brother settlers in the country to the announcement, and heartily solicit the pleasure of their company.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. WE have been favored with a copy of the Fourth Annual Report of the South Australian Company. The abstract from this document we published sometime ago, embodied a large portion of its most interesting contents; but there are still some matters of more local con- cernment which may not be unacceptable to our readers. Among the first of these is the spirited un- dertaking of the New Port—the responsibility of which was taken upon himself by Mr Mc- Laren, to whom the credit of its success is also fairly due. This great work has received the full sanction of the proprietary. The report   says—"that the prudence of Mr McLaren's measures are beginning to appear," and the facts that one allotment at the New Port, con- taining about three quarters of an acre, had been let at £100 per annum, and a few other lots sold at prices varying from £11,300 to £2,000 per acre, are given as sufficient demon- strations of the manager's discrimination. The director...

EXPORTATION OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840

EXPORTATION OF LABOUR. OUR friends at Van Diemen's Land have sent a person to Adelaide with the very honorable commission to crimp as many of the Com-   missioners' emigrants as he can, and Mr Pitcher (that we understand is the name of the Crimp) has been holding out fine promises to the workmen in town in order to tempt them to "try their luck" in Van Diemen's Land. Whether Mr Pitcher has been success- ful or no, we have not ascertained ; but for our parts we think that no obstacle should be thrown in the way of allowing emigrants to do as they please in the matter; and that especi- ally the immigrants recently sent out by the commissioners should be freely permitted to leave us—on their paying the cost of their passage to South Austialia. This would be but fair to both colonies and to the emigrants themselves. It would be clearly unreasonable to expect South Australia to be at the cost of importing emigrants for the use of Van Die- men's Land; and so that Mr Pitcher b...

SUPPLY OF WHEAT AND FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840

SUPPLY OF WHEAT AND FLOUR. THE large crop of wheat which will be ga-   thered from the fields of South Australia, during the present—its second agricultural season—will be materially lessened by the necessity of providing seed for the next year. The quantity required for this purpose will be little short of 30,000 bushels, or somewhat more than one-third of the present crop. It is gratifying, however, to think that the price of foreign grain and flour will be sufficiently moderate to allow its importation at a price likely to affect the cost of labour, and thereby to enable our farmers to increase considerably the extent of cultivated land. Some of our capitalists, we hope, will take advantage of the state of the American market, described in the subjoined extract. The Van Diemen's Land wheat monopolists have, as the saying is, " burnt their fingers," and our supply from that settlement will be cheap and abundant. The following will be read with interest:— &nbsp...
