AGRICULTURAL MEETING ON TUESDAY NEXT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

AGRICULTURAL MEETING ON TUESDAY NEXT. We are glad to learn that much interest is generally excited at the prospect of the meeting on Tuesday of all persons engaged in agricul-   tural and pastoral pursuits, or interested in the   speedy development of our colonial resources. It is earnestly to be hoped that few of the country settlers will be absent on so important   an occasion, and we entreat them all to bring specimens of their wool and agricultural pro- duce of this year's growth. It is particularly desirable, when samples of grain are produced,   that the date of sowing and reaping should be communicated, as well as the estimated produce   per acre. Nor would it be without its use in forming a correct judgment of the quality or produce, that it was further stated if the grain was raised on land broken up during the last or preceding spring.

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. We are indebted to the Swan River Inquirer for the following interesting abstract of the most interesting investigation of the western coast, by H.M.S. Beagle: — Although the last expedition of H. M. S. Beagle has not brought to light any very important discovery, yet some valuable additions have been made to our geographi-   cal knowledge of the N. and N.W. Coasts, and of Dam- pier's Archipelago. Several errors in the old charts have been corrected, and on many points preexisting doubts have been satisfactorily cleared up. We believe that the following will be found a correct account of what has been done:—   Ritchie's reef was found 32 miles east of its present position on the chart; the long lost Trial Rocks have also been found; they bear N.N.E. five miles from Cape Dupuo, the north point of Barrow's Island. The survey commenced at the Abrolhos, and a good chart has been made of these, as well as of 30 miles of the main abreast. O...

OVERL AND ROUTE TO SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

OVERLAND ROUTE TO SWAN RIVER.   The expediency of attempting to establish an overland Communication with Swan River has created some discussion in that settlement. If the following report of the Agricultural Society is to be taken as indicating the opinion of the settlers generally, and in so small a community it is most likely to do so, the scheme may be said to be abandoned. We are bound, how- ever, to express our thanks to His Excellency Governor Hutt for the prompt support he was prepared to afford the undertaking. Mr Roc addressed the meeting relative to the proposal from South Australia, to open a road thence to this colony. He thought it was a matter of great moment, and one on which the opinion of that Society would have great weight with the colonists at large; he trusted, therefore, that its merits would be fairly discussed and considered. He would proceed to lay before the Society such particulars in connection with the subject as were in his possession, and ...

SWAN RIVER, [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

SWAN RIVER. WE have been kindly favoured by Capt Wick-   ham of H. M.S. Beagle with a file of a new Swan River paper called the Inquirer, which is at least much better printed than the Perth Gazette. These journals, as a matter of course, are already at war with each other, although the cause of dispute does not distinctly appear. The crops are said to be abundant and the stock gradually increasing. In other respects the settlement seems to be at a stand still. The Perth Gazette lately informed its readers on the authority of a "respectable colonist of Swan River known to the Editor" of that journal, that South Australia was over-run with bush- rangers, seven of whom we had recently hanged; and a Mr Nash, who has some cattle probably to sell, opposed the scheme of an over- land route on the ground of the danger Swan River would incur by the introduction of these marauders. We may quiet the fears of that very simple gentleman and of our Western contemporary by informing ...

BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. We have great pleasure in publishing the fol- lowing report of the Bank of Australia, in the success and prosperity of which, so many South Australians are now deeply interested: Sicth Annual Report by the Directors of the Bank of Australasia to the Proprietors, on Monday, 1st June, 1840. The Directors of the Bank of Australasia have the plea- sure of stating in this, their Sixth Annual Report to the Proprietors, the present position of the Establishment, and the result of the proceedings since the last Report. In doing so, the Directors are happy to be able at the outset to assure the proprietors, that nothing has occurred to diminish their confidence to the prosperity of the Bank; on the contrary, the business has been progres- sively advancing, and the Bank has now assumed, both in the Colonies and in this Country, that position always anticipated by the Directors, which in large paid-up capital, and its character as a chartered Corporation, could not fall un...

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) On Monday at two o'clock the foundation stone of the Presbyterian Church was laid in Gouger-   street, near Cragie's buildings, by the Rev. Mr. Drummond, in presence of a numerous assembly. The ceremony commenced with singing a por- tion of the 132nd psalm; and after prayer by the Rev. Mr Egglestone, Mr Drummond addressed the meeting to the following effect :— "It must, my friends, with gratitude be allowed   that in every point of view we are a people highly favored of God. ln a knowledge of all useful sciences and arts, Britons have stood pre-eminent among the nations. As to the blessings of civil liberty, few have so abundantly enjoyed, and none have better known how to preserve them; and with regard to the best, we fearlessly say the highest bliss of man—the possession of Bible - truth—the knowledge of the doctrines of the Gospel—the enjoyment of the rich and precious religious privileges to which the G...

SHEEP WASH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

SHEEP WASH. The following extract from Southey's work on Sheep may be usefully republished at the   present moment: — Washing, in hot climates, should be carried on in the shade, or under a temporary awning; excessive heat having in numerous instances proved injurious both to the shep- herd and the objects of his care. The persons employed can besides do more labour whilst thus protected from the vertical rays of the sun. In the way of contrast, it may be proper to explain the mode of washing sheep practised by English farmers,   which varies according to the locality or custom of the country in which they reside. In some counties tubs are used; and this method is more generally adopted in dis- tricts where ponds and streams are not at hand; indeed,   when the natural advantages of flowing water do present themselves, the artifirial substitutes of ponds and tubs is often preferred, being forund to answer every purpose of cleaning the wool. Expe...

THE ARCHIMEDES SCREW. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

THE ARCHIMEDES SCREW. It has been said that this is the age of invention, and certainly when we reflect on the vast improvements that are almost daily taking place in England in mechanical science alone, we are by no means inclined to question the truth of the saying. Among other novelties, we ob- serve that the Archimedes Screw has been applied to the propelling of vessels; the screw being worked in its turn by the power of steam. One steam vessel named the Archimedes, has been already fitted up with this new machinery, and has made several very successful trips. The report of Captain Evans, R.N., who was commis- sioned by the Lords of the Admiralty to inquire into the nature and advantages of this new power, has been obligingly communicated by a friend—we extract the following: — "In my trip on board the Archimedes, I observed that   the screw possesses the following advantages over the common paddle wheel: — 1st. By its immersion it is secure from the effects of &...

HOBART TOWN, NOVEMBER 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

HOBART TOWN, NOVEMBER 17. Wheat, 5s 6d to 6s per bushel; oats, 4s to 4s 6d ditto; barley, 3s to 3s 6d ditto; cabbages, 2s per dozen; new potatoes, 3d per lb.: turnips, 2½ per bunch; green peas, 2s per perk; carrots, 2d per bunch; goosberies, 3d per quart; strawberries, 4s per pottle; cherries (tolerable ripe) 2s 6d per lb. Business in the wholesale way has been unusually dull this week, owing to the retail dealers having considerable stock on hand. The state of the wheat market is singu- lar. Top official market return strikes the average at from 5s. 6d. to 6s. per bushel. A quantity has recently been purchased at Pittwater at 6s. 6d., and inferior sam- ples as low as 4s. 2d. The cause of this reduction ap- pears to have been the news from without, and the effect, the closing the Government stores, which have been re- cently open at 7s. 6d. At a fair average on these prices flour ought not to be higher than 17s. 6d. per cwt., whereas, flour varies at the different mills from 22s. to...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial ford record,"— SHAKSPERE. THE CONC[?] OF THE OLDEN POETS—If the   final test of a poet's excellence be the duration of his works in the affectionate regard of pos-   terity, it must be admitted that the claims of Cowley, and others of his class, are not of the highest order. They have long since lsot their popularity, and the few amongst whom they are still cherished render but a conditional allegiance   to their genius. The reason of this, however, is   not because they were not poets in the exact sense of the term but because they mixed up with what was beautiful and true much that was fantastical and false. They were perpetually   going out of their way in search of the extra- vagant and the uncommon, and were never con-     tent, when they got hold of a natural image, to treat it naturally, no if they believed that it was necessary to embellish o...

LOCAL POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 December 1840

LOCAL POLITICS. SINCE the last arrival from England, we have been inundated with all varieties of reports connected with the financial position of the Commissioners, and the resignation or recal of Governor Gawler. Some of the most unpala- table of these reports are now very generally credited; and we confess that there is much reason to believe that, in the main, they are correct. The next ship from England must put an end to all doubts on the subject. In the meantime, the following notice from the last Chronicle will show our readers "where the shoe pinches." Our contemporary is silent   on the reported instructions to the Governor about the transference of the Police Force to to the Corporation. We trust that there is no truth in it; or if there be, that the Corporation will have nothing to do with the matter:— It has been reported very generally during the week that Governor Gawler is likely to be suc- ceeded at a very early day by Sir John Ellis. We have been unabl...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1840. REVIEW OF GOVERNOR GAWLER'S ADMINISTRATION OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [FIRST NOTICE.] Whether Colonel Gawler's departure be near at hand or distant, the time has arrived when a review of his political conduct as the Gover-   nor of this province may not be without its use. Indeed, recent circumstances have com- bined to make such a review almost imperative upon us; but we proceed to the task, not with the paltry hope of triumphantly establishing the public consistency of this journal, far less with the intention of repelling the personal attacks with which one of its Editors is un- scrupulously assailed; but with the firm in- tention of narrating calmly, dispassionately, and impartially the histoy of the Government   of South Australia during a period far more critical—far more anxious and interesting— that is likely ever again to occur in the onward and successful career that is now fairly open...
