[ HIS EXCELLENCY'S RETURN FROM PORT LINCOLN. On Wednesday Morning last, at two O'Clock, a. m.. the brie; Porter arrived from Port Lincoln,at Holdfast Bay, bringing Hrs EXCELLENCY, family, and suite. His EXCELLENCY, we understand, left Port Lincoln on Monday, at ten O'Clock, p.m., on which occasion a salute was fired, and the shore was crowded with nearly the whole of the population, who had assembled to wit ness his departure. The ADELAIDE VOLUNTEERS apprised of his Excellency's return, proceeded at an early hour on Wednesday Morning, to Holdfast Bay, and escorted his Excellency and family lo town From the information, we have been enabled to gather, upon the subject of his Excellency's visit, it appears that the rumours which were in circulation, as to the probabi lity of his Excellency's report, with Tegard to Port Lincoln, being unfavourable, are entirely without foundation. His Excellency is re_ ported to have said, th.j.t the harbour of Port Lincoln is easy of access, and one o...

GRATITUDE OF THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1840
GRATITUDE OF THE BLACKS. Notwithstanding the bad odour tu which the nnfortona'e Aborigines are held by many of our rea fers, we think it but (air to r&lt; cord an interesting incident of very recent occurrence, wbicb shew» that whatever the crimes may be with which the Aborigines are chargeable, they a»e at all events not deficient tn gratitude. Some ten or twelve months ago an infant belonging to one of the loubras or jins, then encamped in the vicinity of the town, was accidentally severely burnt, and the wounds not having been properly attended io the child was ia a mos* deplorable condition, when it foriona'ely attracted the notice of a benevolent, lady in the town, who for some considerable time dailv washed and dres ed the wounds until the child bad perfectly recovered. Soon after the child got well, the tribe to which the mother belong- d left the town and did not return till a. few days ago. The circumitauce had altogether escaped th«-, memory of the lady to whose be...

HIS EXCELLENCY'S FINANCIAL MINUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1840
, HIS EXCELLENCY'S FINANCIAL I MINUTE. t IN our paper of Thursday last, we published at length His Excellency's "financial minute" with reference to the state of our Colonial Revenue. We pronounced that document a "bungling" attempt ata financial Minute : and we did so on these two grounds. First, because his Excellency in that document promises to " refer generally to the probable expenditure of the present year," whereas ali reference to it is afterwards avoided ;-and. Secondly, because be proposes to enter upon " the actual expenditure of that recently con cluded/' whereas, in the next breath, hi» says that the accounts for the three first quarters '.have only been lately transmitted to the Auditor-General, a» d are.in consequence still unexamined.*' These, we repea^ were the grounds on which our charge of bungling was prefered ; and if it did not merit the applica tion ot this epithet, we should like toknu* what would have been more appropriate. Our business now, however, is not...
MUNICPAL CORPORATION BILL [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1840
MUNICPAL CORPORATION BILL IN oar last, we published, without any abridge ment, the recommendations and suggestions of the Colonization Commissioners to the Right Hon. Lord Glenelg. Colonial Secretary, upon the sub ject of Municipal Corporations in Sooth Australia We did tho ander the impression, that bis Excel lency, Colonel Gawler, wouid, on his return from Pott Lincoln, he prepared to lay before the Coun cil the draft of a Bill for Adelaide ; and with the view of preventing our fellow cit rzensfrom suffering an enactment of so much importance to their future welfare from being brought into operation in a crude and ill-digested state. An attentive perusal of that document bas con firmed us in the opinion we then expressed, namely, that we saw no reason why those recom mendations and suggestions should be implicitly followed, providing improvements in the form of the Bili can be pointed out. The draft of the Bill, we are told, is already drawn ont, and in course of due preparation f...

THE REGISTRATION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1840
THE REGISTRATION ACT. &nbsp; Now that his Excellency bas returned from Port Lincoln, we hope he is prepared to set about the work of legislation in good earnest. Next to the passing of the Corporation Bill, of which we have treated at length in a former article, the Registration Act, in our opinion, ought to take the precedence. Several attempts have been made to bring this bill under the notice of the Legislative Council, but as yet it appears to be but in the earliest stages of its progress. By a reference to the Gazette, we find that it was some time ago brought under the consideration of the council, and discussed at some length, and subsequently was referred to certain parties for amendment and improvement, but has not since made its appearance. We say nothing of the irregularity of such a proceeding, believing as we do, that its withdrawal from the council chamber and its being placed in the hands of the Registrar General, was dictated by a desire for its reproduc- tio...
