THE COUNTRY. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840
THE COUNTRY. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) SOME weeks ago we made a few remarks on the progress and state of rural affairs in the district immediately to the southward of Ade- laide. Since then and within the last fortnight, other districts of the country have come under our observation, and we are unwilling to omit the opportunity of saying a few words regarding them. Since our last visit to Noarlunga, which formed the terminus of our former trip, considerable pro- gress has been made in the erection of the bridge across the Onkaparinga. The whole of the piles are now driven, and it is calculated that another couple of months will see the bridge fully com- pleted and ready for use. In addition to the inn &nbsp; Noarlunga now possesses a very large and well filled store, for the accommodation of distant settlers. A few miles beyond the Onkaparinga is the beautiful valley called McLaren Vale. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; In it there are at present twelve settl...
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. NEW South Wales is immediately to enjoy a representative government. On the 30th of June. Lord John Russell moved for leave to bring in a bill for the (future) Government of New South Wales. He proposed that instead of the present Legislative Council, which was appointed by the Crown, that there should be a Council of thirty-six members; that twenty-four of these members should be popularly elected, and that the other twelve should sit by the authority of the Governor He proposed that the plan should continue for ten years for as the colony increased in wealth and population, the colonists would expect institutions similar to those of the North American possessions and the other colonies of Great Britain. He proposed an elective franchise of £10 arising either from a house or a certain amount of &nbsp; property or land. The Council would have all the powers that at present belonged to the Government Council. There was also a prop...

AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840
AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE. (From the Glasgow Courier of July 18th.) ON Friday the steamer British Queen arrived from New York in fourteen days, bringing news from America to the 2nd July. On the 29th June the President, Mr Van Buren, made the following communication to the Senate on the subject of the Maine Boundary, to the effect that the British Government had consented to the principles of the last proposition of the United States, for the settlement of the protracted question of the North-eastern Boundary:— &nbsp; "To the Senate; " The importance of the subject to the tranquillity of our country makes it proper that I should communicate to the Senate, in addition to the information heretofore trans- mitted in reply to their resolution of the 17th of January &nbsp; last, the copy of a letter just received from Mr Fox, an- nouncing the determination of the British Government to consent to the principles of our last proposition for the settlement of the question of the ...
FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS, "Trivial fond records"-SHAKESPERE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840
FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records"- SHAKESPERE. THE GREAT LADY OF 1830—Where the great lady of the past ages gave aims silently and with abundance, that of the present day dealt out obstinately her stinted dole, and thus lessens the misery of the indigent but for an hour. But on the other hand—and one owes her the justice of proclaiming it—if in her charities she is too eco- nomical of her purse, at least it must be acknow- ledged that she is prodigal of herself. Indefati- gable in dancing for some, in singing for others, she beams forth lady patroness of all the fetes, balls, and concerts organised for the benefit of the poor, the widow, the orphan, and the refugee, whom the generous sympathies of the public feel it necessary to relieve; nay, pushing her charity further still—and here we have the sublime of devotion—during certain periodical paroxysms in favor of indigence, and by way of helping it all the better, the great lady imposes upon herself the whol...
PCOGRESS OF OPIUM EATING IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 November 1840
PROGRESS OF OPIUM-EATING IN &nbsp; ENGLAND. It is a curious but melancholy fact, that the habit of chewing opium is fast increasing in this coun- try. It is now constantly alluded to at public meetings where temperence principles are discus- sed; and on a recent occasion we remember it was the subject of discussion among the members of the Statistical Society. Within these few days the vice has been again animadverted upon by some of the dignitaries of the Church. At the aniversary meeting of the British and Foreign Temperance Society, the Bishop of Norwich, in the course of his excellent speech, called attention to the subject— "He looked on Temperance Societies as vast &nbsp; moral machines, by which, connected with religion, the regeneration of the human family might, to a great degree, be accomplished. One great cause of the distress every where prevelent &nbsp; was intemperance. A curious calculation had been made that the quantity of spirits consumed &a...

CHINA. THE Hero arrived from Singapore last Satur- day morning just as we had gone to press, bringing news from China to the 4th August. Subjoined is a summary of the news from the Expedition:— To THE EDITOR OF THE CANTON PRESS. 11th July, 1840. The long looked for steamer from Chusan arrived last night, and having received by her several letters from gentlemen in the fleet, I have gleaned a few items of in- &nbsp; telligence for you, which may be interesting to your distant readers. It appears that Her Majesty's Ship Wellesley, 74 guns, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Sir Gordon Bremer, and that portion of the expedition which left Singapore on the 24th of June, arrived in Chusan harbour and cast anchor before Tinghae, the capital, in the afternoon of the 4th July. that same evening, the Commodore held a conference with several of the principal Chinese civil and military officers, when a very few words were sufficient to explain how the case stood. They were told tha...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1840. UNWARRANTABLE INTERFERENCE WITH THE COURSE OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840
The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1840. UNWARRANTABLE INTERFERENCE WITH THE COURSE OF JUSTICE. SOME time ago Governor Gawler very gravely announced that in all questions between the natives, and the colonists, the administration of justice would be retained in his own hands. This extraordinary and illegal position, it is true, immediately fell to pieces—demolished by its own palpable absurdity—and although Governor Gawler would no more dare to at- tempt to "administer justice: than to admi- nister arsenic to a colonist, still not only does the pretension remain publicly unabandoned, but from recent events, it would seem that his Excellency has put forth a claim to the exercise &nbsp; of a much more dangerous and unconstitu- tional power, namely, that of interference with the administration of justice among the colonists themselves! &nbsp; The facts, as communicated to us, are &nbsp; &nbsp; briefly as follows,— A case, in w...

NOVER LEGISLATIVE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840
NOVEL LEGISLATIVE ACT. While measures or the deepest importance to the permanent well-being of the colony are at an absolute stand still, time can be found by Governor Gawler and his precious advisers to exhibit their total ignorance of the commonest &nbsp; rules of political economy, and their utter in- &nbsp; &nbsp; capacity for the important duties with which, &nbsp; as legislators, they are for the present en- &nbsp; trusted. There is scarcely an act, indeed, which has passed the Council during Colonel Gawler's government that is not a proof of this assertion—redolent with blunders of the most &nbsp; whimsical, if not of the most mischievous des- cription. In a review of Colonel Gawler's administration of the Government of South Australi, which we shall shortly submit to &nbsp; the public, numerous instances of this truth will be afforded—although perhaps, next to &nbsp; his Excellency's attempt to destroy the pro- ...
