DINNER TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 December 1840

DINNER TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. ON Thursday evening last, a dinner was given to his Excellency the Governor by the members of the South Australian Club, on the occassion of the completion of the new club-house. The store of Messrs Hack, Watson, and Co., was fitted up fur the occasion, from the design and under the superintendence of Stanley Stokes, Esq., and did much credit to that gentleman's well-known taste. After the usual loyal and patriotic toasts had been given— The Right Worshipful the Mayor, in proposing the health of his Excellency the Governor, said that he felt himself at a loss for words to express himself on the occason: he felt proud to be mouthpiece on this occasion ; he considered that the main object of the South Australian Club was to establish a union of feeling and sociality, and when they looked at the various excellent qualities which were combined in his Excellency—his high sense of honor and gentlemanly feeling—he felt sure that, while he continued th...

LECTURE ON THE ABGLITION OF CAPTAIN PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 December 1840

LECTURE ON THE ABOLITION OF CAPTAIN PUNISHMENTS. Delivered by DAVID MCLAREN, Esq., to the Literary and Scientific Association and Me- chanics' Institute on Thursday evening, Dec. 18.             In presenting myself before you this evening as a humble advocate for the "total abolition of capital punishments," I think it proper to state   in the outset that I had the honor of communi- cating to his Excellency the Governor my inten-       tion to deliver a lecture on that subject, previ-   ously to any advertisement of this meeting, and that his Excellency was pleased most promptly, and in the kindest manner, to express his con- currence in that intention being carried into     effect. Differing, as he does very widely, from the news of the lecturer, he is not averse to a calm, dispassionate, discussion of that or any ...

THE MOORGATE STREET BANK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 December 1840

THE MOORGATE STREET BANK. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, FREDERICK BOUCHER. We publish the following from the Colonial Gazette for the amusement and edification of our readers who are acquainted with the facts:— To the Editor of the Colonial Gazette The British and Australasian Bank, 55, Moorgate-street, London, 4th Aug. 1840.   Sir—With reference to a paragraph which appeared in your paper of the 29th ult. reflecting most unjustly, upon this bank, I have to request the insertion, in the ensuing number of the Colonial Gazette, of the following explanation regarding the return from Adelaide of the bills, &. alluced to in the said paragraph. My brother was, in December 1838, appointed to the office of manager of the intended branch of this bank at Adelaide. He arrived at Adelaide in the Parsee; but   was unfortunately wrecked within two days' tail of the port. The passengers and crew were conveyed to a sandbank in the vicinity of the wreck, and rem...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1840. PUBLIC DINNER MR. McLAREN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1840. PUBLIC DINNER MR. McLAREN. It is with sincere pleasure we announce that a public dinner is to be given to Mr McLaren on Thursday next by the colonists, as a mark of respect to himself personally, and for his conduct as the manager of the South Aus- tralian Company. Mr McLaren leaves the colony on the following day, and we do not think, that on such an occasion many colonists will omit this opportunity of evincing their respect for one who has labored so long, so earnestly, so honestly, and so successfully to promote the interests of the province.

APOSTACY OF THE REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

APOSTACY OF THE REGISTER. WE have changed our opinion, it appears, on all subjects connected with the Government and the principle of the Colony. We are apostates, in short, and of that rare and foolish race who prefer apostacy to interest. As apropos to the last charge against us on this score, and to a matter of deep and present interest, we republish the following, from this   journal of the 18th January last—so adverse   to the principles we now promulgate that we   are sure our readers must be quite shocked at   our "lamentable tergiversation" : —     "GOVERNMENT EXPENDITURE OF SOUTH   AUSTRALIA.   "The time has arrived when one great   principle of South Australian Colonization— the self supporting—is about to undergo the     experimentum crucis. What the result may be it is easy to anticipate. If, on the one hand, by the 'self supporti...

THE DELF-SUPPORTING SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

THE SELF-SUPPORTING SYSTEM. GOVERNOR GAWLER has announced that " he sacrificed the self-supporting principle to save the colony." But this cannot be ALL the information the public are to be favoured with on a point of deep and vital interst to its cha- racter and prosperity? We are told that the   emergencies have been great, and we have asked for their specification and their price. But we are answered by miserable attempts to exhibit the "apostacy" and " inconsistency" of the Register! Surely this is not the way   that the colonists of South Australia deserve to be treated by Governor Gawler. The reports of the Audit Board, hitherto so care- fully suppressed—the quarterly financial re- turns, as yet unpublished—a plain statement, in short, of the amount of the money his Ex- cellency has received, and of the purposes for which he has expended it, would be a thousand times more satisfactory ot the public than any quantity of lickspittle praise than can &...

NEW SOUTH WALLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

NEW SOUTH WALLS. By the Dorset, arrived on Wednesday from Sydney (making the voyage hence and back in the short space of four weeks), we have papers up to the 12th December. A great sensation has been created through out New South Wales by the receipt of the despatches from Lord John Russell, mentioned in out last, dividing the Colony into three districts, and applying the South Australian principle to the Southern or Port Phillip dis- trict. An extraordinary meeting of the Council was failed, at which, on the motion of Bishop Broughton, the following resolution was unanimously adopted:— "That the Council, under a serious apprehen-   sion of the injury likely to be sustained by the Colony of New South Wales, in regard to its staple produce, and the important interests of revenue, commerce, and population, through the   dismemberment of so large a portion of territory now annexed to it as would be occasioned by the adoption of the limits assigned by the Roya...

SMUT IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

SMUT IN WHEAT. The discussion at the last Agricultural Meet-   ing on the subject of so much importance to the wheat grower, has directed our attention to the discuss which exists more or less in all grain countries, and which to a certain extent has been productive of mischief to the crops of South Australia. We have found in Knight's Penny Magazine the two communications from Mr Bauer, of Kew, well known for his scientific and successful experiments on the prevention of disease in grain, which we have transferred to our columns in the hope of their being usefully read by our agricultural friends. The mode of pickling seed wheat therein re- commended may be advantageously adopted, as well as the following, which has been long used with perfect success by Mr Whitington, the celebrated English wheat grower :— Put four bushels of wheat on a stone or brick flour, well cleaned, in a round heap; place on it an iron pot or kettle which will contain eight or nine gallons, put ...

PRICE OF WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

PRICE OF WOOL. WE have been favored by a respected friend with the following extract from a letter ad- dressed to him by an intelligent correspondent residing in one of the principal manufacturing districts of England:— "21st June, 1840. "There were some sales of New South Wales wool held last week in London, which went very low—say, fair average Sydney flocks 1s 4½d to 1s 7d; unwashed wools and wools in grease, 8d to 9d: a few new Van Diemen's Land wools, just arrived, to be at 1s 4½d to 1s 8d; with long young teg-kind (hoggets), at 1s 10d to 1s 10½d—averaging 1s 6d to 1s 6½d in London for wools, which were invoiced to a London house at 1s 8d in I the colony, being a loss on net proceeds of 5d to 5½ per lb. The   loss on imports of colonial wools of 1839 was rated at about 3½d per lb. Some wools, which were sent to America last year from Sydney, from the runied state of everything commercial   and manufacturing there, were re-shipped to England, to meet, i...

PRICE OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

PRICE OF LABOUR. Yours &c., A COUNTRY SETTLED. Adelaide, Dec. 24, 1840. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN— It is a matter of great surprise to myself and many of your readers, the high price at which labour continues, there being a much greater supply, and considering the price of provisions, house rent, firing, &c., reduced in some cases one-half—for instance, in the article bread —must, where there is a family, be an important saving. In turning the matter over in my mind, I think there are one or two things that tend to keep up the price of labour. The first, is the fallacious inducements held out to our labourers by our kind colonial neighbours; who, having first enriched themselves at our expense then, regardless of injury, take away from us our means of future support—a piece of policy on their part, but not much to be praised. At the same time, I am not opposed to any of the dissatisfied leaving, as their room would be better than thei...

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—Having recently perused some   extracts from a letter seat home from this place, I was stuck with the following: "We have as yet no place of worship here; in fact, I am not aware whether there are any Unita- rians in Adeladie, besides our own family."   In reading the sketch of the religious institu- tions of the city contained in the South Aus-     tralian Almanack, I perceive that whilst every   other denomination is provided with the means   of religious edification for their familites, this body of Christians is not in the least noticed. These two facts have led to the following   queries:—1st, Are there any Unitarians in Adelaide ? 2nd. Are they contented that the religious edification of themselves and families should be provided for them solely by other   parties? 3rd, Are they devoid of the means   of ...

TANNERY IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

TANNERY IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I remain, &c., WM. PEACOCK. Grenfell-street, Dec, 10, 1840. GENTLEMAN—Agreeably to your request, I beg to forward you a few particulars in reference to our tanning operations. On my arrival in the colony, somewhat less than two years ago, I found that there was, compara-   tively, nothing doing, either with the sheep- skins or hides. I believe, then, more than half were totally lost as to any good purpose. I remember Mr Hack remarked to me, that here they never thought of paying anything for skins or hides; and the first cheque I paid to Shepherd the butcher, he assured me that the amount was £10 more than they had received all the time they had been in the colony, and I believe they were amongst the early settlers. I merely mention these things, to show you that there was a great loss to the colony for want of a person who understood how to turn those things to a profitable purpose. I ...

Just, as we are going to press we hear of the arrival of Lady Franklin, wife of Sir John Franklin, Governor of Van Diemen's Land. Her Ladyship is accompanied by Miss Franklin and Mr Gell, brother to Mr A. D. Gell, assistant to his Excellency's Private Secretary. The Natives.—It was with much regret that we observed a few days ago, on the Park Land opposite Government House, a native in a state of beastly intoxication. We call the attention of the authorities to this circumstance, and we trust a strict search will be made for the white savage who supplied the intoxicating beverage. The caution given now nearly four years ago, against supplying the natives with spirits has recently been lost sight of, it is a subject upon which a stringent law cannot be     too soon read or too strictly enforced.     A Hint - The General Post Office in Lon-   don has published a circular, recommending persons sending letters from India a...
