WAR IN ALGIERA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 April 1840

WAR IN A LG I ERA. Rumours dad been tor some days afloat in Paris of a sudden outbreak of war against tbe French in the vicinity of Algiers, and of a division having been even cut off". The Moni teur Parisien of Sunday night corro borates these evil tidings, by publishing despatches of Marshal Vallee dowu tu the 24th ultimo, The Arabs of the remote districts and I heir fanatical .Emir, Abc-El-Kader, seem to have I been alarmed by the Duke ot Orleans' recent excursion through the interior. Perhaps they considered this aimed expedition as a breach of the treaty of theTafna, .which placed certain limits to French occupation east and south of Algiers. Be this as it may, the Emir proclaimed a holy war against the infidels, made a tour through the tribes round Oran, forbade them to furnish the French with provisions and corn, and exercised great severity on those chiefs or tribes attached to the French. Then proceeding eastward ,he announced by a letter to Marshal Vallee, date«! the 16th ...

THE BREVET [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 April 1840

THE BREVET THE United Service Gazette enables us io extract fro ai its columns the follow ing speculations on the following pro bable nature of the Brevet to which lier Majesty's marriage will give rise: " We have re ison to believe that the Queen's approaching nuptials will give rise to a brevet, morie!le«! after the plan of the corot atiott one of the 28th June, 1838. which fol lowiua: tts precursor of the 10th January, 1837, in such rapid succession, was, as every one expect ed it to be, somewhat of the shortest of its kind. If om present conjectures respecting the anticipated brevet torn out to btr correct, its limited extent will, of course, date its origin from the same cause as the on»-just enumerated. But al tin » u «¿b the brevet of 1839 may be no stronger in numbers than iisnm mediate forerunner, it. will be vastly more fertile in the creation of vacancies .lpon the home and foreign st a if, as well as in command of regiments, and will place a great deal more patronage at ...

On Munday evening last, a meeting: was held af'the Great Bell of Lincoln/' Thebarton, with the view of promoting "the erection of a New Bridge across the Torrens, on the line of road from 'the Harbour to Adelaide, as laid dowu by Colonel 'Light. The attendance, ctho* not numerous, was respectable, and as great as could be expected. Mr. Grey was called to the chair. THE CHAIRMAN, in opening the business of the meet in observed that the object for which they had met was one of great importance,-^nay he might add of deep necessity. lt was well that it required no display of eloquence to urge it upo i their consideration, or it would have met with "but a feeble advocate in him. AU that he should attempt was, to confine himself to a bare statement of facts. The present Bridge, in tire immediate neighbourhood of Adelaide, was, as they all knew, 'exceedingly inconvenient, and in the event of a flood it would, be had no doubt, prove highly dan...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA.. We have been favored with a perusal of a com munication of a late date from Perth. Governor il ott appears to be indefatigable in his end ea von re to promote the interests of the colony ; bat be has most formidable difficulties to contend with, ia the shape of the dispersive system, which his popular predecessor, Sir James Stirling, encou raged. Land may be bought almost in any quan tities at the Swan River, for 2s 6d per acre ; and yet the inhabitants blame the Governor for stop ping the sale of crown lands, and fancy that the tbe only obstacle to their rapid accumulation of wealth, is want of land. ' This reminds one of a story told by Bnrkhardt, of á man at Mecca« who died in consequence of the enormous quantify of water which he drank from the sacred fountain, bot who departed this life' under the firm convic tion that his malady was occasioned by inability (oil rink enough of the holy beverage.
