TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

TO CORRESPONDENTS. N is requested to accept our thanks; but we cannot avail ourselves of his communication. The letter of a True Friend to South Australia would not answer the professed object of its writer. if we could not accomplish a political purpose without resorting to personal abuse we should relinquish its pursuit at once. Several literary notices are postponed till our next.

AGRICULTURAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

AGRICULTURAL MEETING. We only wish we had had present, on Tuesday, at the Agricultural Meeting, any inveterate sceptic regarding the productive capabili-   ties of South Australia. We should have punished him by asking what he thought of the splendid samples of wheat produced, and if he considered sixty-six pounds per bushel sufficient weight ? He should have been obliged to examine the barley, the oats, the potatoes, the turnips, and should have lifted from the ground, if he could, the cabbages. As to the wool, we might have told him of three thousand bales, the produce of the pre- sent season, and startled him by the announce- ment that, in the third year of her pastoral   existance, South Australia is exporting a large quantity more of that staple than New South Wales did in 1822, when that settlement was in its twenty-third year. Nay, we could have demonstrated, even to his conviction, that this province will treble the present year's export of wool, an...

UNWARRANTABLE INTERFERENCE WITH THE COURSE OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

UNWARRANTABLE INTERFERENCE WITH THE COURSE OF JUSTICE. THE very painful statement made public in our last, in reference to Governor Gawler's inter-   ference in a case finally decided by the Resident Magistrate, has been corroborated in every important particular; and we must say, that a more flagrant attempt to interrupt the course of justice and, in effect, to overawe a magistrate in the fearless and independent exercise of his judicial functions, has seldom or ever been at- tempted in any—the most despotically ruled— colony of the British empire. It is impossible that a procedure so unwarranted —so directly calculated to sap the foundations of civil liberty   —so gross a violation of a most sacred consti- tutional principle—should be allowed to pass unnoticed and unreprobated. With the merits or details of the case on which our former ob- servations were founded, we have nothing to do. The mere fact, that upon the complaint and at the instigation of a pr...

MEDDLING WITH THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

MEDDLING WITH THE LABOUR MARKET. It is generally beleived that the Labourers' Agreement Bill— the absurdity and inappli-   cability of which we demonstrated in our last—   is for the present withdrawn—or at least that it is not to take effect until it has received the approval of Her Majesty—equivalent to its postponement to the Greek Kalends—for in its present stale no such measure would be listened to for a moment by the Colonial Secretary nor by any man possessed of the slightest knowledge of the principles which regulate emigration or the supply and demand for labour. We should have been content with an- nouncing the abandonment of this measure, but a re-perusal of Governor Gawler's minute, which preceded its introduction to the Council, obliges us to point out a misstatement of some importance into which no doubt His Excel- lency has been inadvertantly led. After ex- pressing a hope that the persons in the neigh- bouring colonies desirous to seduce our...

ABOLITION OF CAPITAL PUNIEHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

ABOLITION OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. WE had the gratification, on Thursday night, of listening to the delivery, by David McLaren, Esq., of one of the most able essays perhaps, ever composed on this interesting subject. It is with sincere regret that typographical diffi- culties prevent us enabling those of our readers who were absent to enjoy the gratification of persuing it at length. In our next we shall have the pleasure of laying it before them, and of suggesting at the same time the pro- priety of adopting a petition to Parliament on the subject. We are sure it would gratify Mr McLaren to be the bearer of such a do-   cument to England.

No title [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

Sir —I have the honor to report to your Excel-   lency, that on my arrival at Mr. Malcolm's Special Survey on Lake Alexandrina, on the afternoon of the 22nd November, Mr. Poole, in charge of the survey stationed near the north-eastern headland of the entrance into Lake Albert, mentioned to me that he thought he had gleaned from the natives where the remainder of the crew of the Maria were buried. On questioning two of the native boys, they stated that some more white   men had been killed not far off, but could not ex-   actly point out where they were buried. The day   before yesterday, having joined Mr Henderson, who       is encamped about ten miles to the east of Mr   Poole, I again heard from two other natives a   story very similar to the above, only that the   murder had been more recent. On speaking to   Mr Henderson, and cross-questi...

ENGLISH NEWS. THE Birman brings newspapers to the 23rd August. We have been favored with a few by the consignees and one of the passengers of the vessel, from which we glean the following news:— PARLIAMENT. The Houses of Parliament were prorogued by her Majesty on the 12th August, when the following Royal Speech was delivered:— HER MAJESTY'S SPEECH. " My Lords and Gentlemen, " The state of public business enables me to close this session of Parliament; and in releas- in your from your attendance I have to thank your for the care and attention with which you have dicharged your important duties. " I continue to receive from Foreign Powers assurances of their friendly disposition, and of their anxious desire for the maintenance of peace.

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.-No. 3. ENTOMOLOGY COLEOPTERA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 12 December 1840

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.—No. 3. ENTOMOLOGY—COLEOPTERA.     NATURE AMATOR. November 30, 1840. THE large class of Insecta which is included, with several others in the division Articulata, together with the two other divisions Mollusca and Radiata, compose the second great family of the animal kingdom—the invertebrated   animals; the first being the vertebrated. The order of nature as observable in the first di- vision is entirely reversed in the Insecta, for in them the skeleton, with every wondrously   formed joint and articulation, encloses all the fleshy or softer parts of the creature, instead of being covered by these parts, which are consequently the first to decay. Many insects appear thefefore, in a quite perfect state when only their skeleton or external covering re- mains, which affords greater advantages to the entomologist in collecting them than in any     other department of Zoology....

AGRICULTURAL SHOW AND DINNER. ( From the Chronicle ) THE first Annual General Meeting of the Agri- cultural society was held at Fordham's hotel yesterday at two o'clock.

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1840. GOVERNOR GAWLER AND THE SELF-SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE. In Governor Gawler's announcement is to be taken as conclusive, the self-supporting prin-   ciple which constituted one of the main fea-   tures of the South Australian system, has been found to be impracticable, and is conse-   quently abandoned. We entreat the attention of the public to the observations made by the Governor on Tuesday evening last, at the Club     dinner (which will be found in another column) in reference to this most important subject, and to the brief remarks to which at present we restrict ourselves on the course his Excel- Iency has thought proper to pursue. In the first place, it occurs to us that Go- vernor Gawler's assertion that the colony has been in a state of emergency from the time of his arrival up to the present hour, is, to say the lean of it, exceedingly unsatisfac...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN STEAM SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 December 1840

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN STEAM SHIPS. We have been favored with a copy of the prospectus of the Company formed in England for the purpose of establishing a steam com-   munication between this province and the other Australian colonies, a copy of which we shall have the pleasure of publishing in our next. A considerable portion of the capital (£100,000, it, 200 shares of £50 each) has been raised in England, and besides the Courier steamer, now in harbour and almost ready for sea, three other steam vessels are on their way, two of which may be hourly ex- pected. It is intended, we hear, to establish a local Board of Direction in Adelaide, and a number of shares are reserved for appropriation in this and the neighbouring colonies. In the meantime, the management has been confided to our enterprising friend Mr Whitington, to whom the vessels are consigned.

PARTITION OF NEW SOUTH WALES, AND GENERAL ADOPTION OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN PRINCIPLES OF COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 December 1840

PARTITION OF NEW SOUTH WALES, AND GENERAL ADOPTION OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN PRINCIPLES OF COLONIZATION. By Order of the Board, S. WALCOTT, Secretary. THE last arrivals from England brought the important intelligence that the South AUS-   TRALIAN principle of Colonization has been adopted by Her Majesty's Government, as that by which all future appropriations of waste land in the British Colonies is to be   regulated. We receive by the same opportunity the further interesting information that the ter- ritory of New South Wales is to be forthwith divided into three portions—the Northern or   Moreton Bay district—the Middle or Sydney   district—and the Southern or Port Phillip   district. This dismemberment of the Colony   of New South Wales, preliminary, no doubt, to separate Government, is in the meantime confined to the disposal of land. We publish from the London Journal of Commerce of Aug. 22 the followin...

STATISTICS. We understand that Mr McLaren, in the prospect of returning to England, is collecting statistical information, and although his posi-   tion enables him to obtain much information of this kind, and very valuable assistance has been afforded him, we believe, both by the gentlemen connected with the public offices and by private friends, we are persuaded there are many individuals in the town and neigh- bourhood who might make very useful contri- butions to the common fund. We know that Mr McLaren wishes to be furnished with minute, varied, and accurate information of that kind, in order that he may have it in his power to present a full and faith- ful picture of this country ; and every right- hearted colonist should feel a pleasure in co-operating in such an object. We are authorised to state that any infor- mation of the kind above mentioned, will be gratefully received by Mr McLaren, if sent in writing to the South Australian Company's Commercial offices, ...

PROOFS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIAN PROSPERITY. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, NICOL NAMELESS, Murphy Hall, December 10th. Gentlemen—Much pains is taken, and much rhetoric exhausted, in disproving the many fal-   lacies regarding our adopted country, invented and circulated by our colonial adversaries, but, in my poor judgment, a cursory glance at the Nomen- ography of Adelaide will do more to disabuse our neighbours of their mistaken prejudices than columns of irrefragible argument. With this view, I have put together the following " Table of Contents," to which I trust your well known amor patriae will give publicity, and which will ensure that conviction which the bare truth never fails to produce. They will hardly say, after this, that Black is the Whyte of our eye— or that we are Green after doing them so Brown. Can Adelaide be very ill off so long as she has so many Bakers, Fishers, Wrights, Smiths, and Taylor; besides ha...
