CHINESE INTELLIGENCE, We find the following in the Sydney Herald of December 12:— [From the Canton Press, August 15.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

CHINESE INTELLIGENCE, We find the following in the Sydney Herald of December 12:— (From the Canton Press , August 15.) We stated last week that Mr Vincent Stanton had on Thursday the 6th, whilst out bathing, disappeared, and that there was every reason to suppose that he had been captured by Chinese, in consecuence of the rewards offered by their authorities for the capturing or slaying of Eng- lishmen. On the following Saturday we heard of his having been seen near the Bogue in a fishing boat, and it ws said that his head was wounded. This information came however from a doubtful   source, but on Sunday the 9th, in the afternoon, authentic accounts were received of his having arrived in Canton, and of his being there in custody of the Chinese authorities. His country- men strongly sympathise in Mr Stranton's mis- fortune, and it is to be inferred that energetic measures will be taken for his liberation. As generally happens in transactions between the Chinese authoriti...

THE COLONIAL MAGAZINE NO. 7. [?] BY R. [?] MART N. ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

THE COLONIAL MAGAZINE, NO. 7. EDITED BY R. MONTGOMERY MARTIN, ESQ.   THE seventh number of this valuable publication has just reached us; and we rejoice so see that it continues to be conducted in the fine spirit of its predecessors. Among the many interesting. articles, we find the following observations on     the subject of the "Qualification of Colonial   Governors." The principle maintained in that     article is incontrovertiable, and in the rapidly   increasing interest which the colonies of Eng-   land are exciting at home, its all but universal application is unavoidable. "One of the most important subjects connected with the administration of colonial affairs, is the   appointing of governors to represent the name and power of the sovereign : heretofore there has been no principle to determine this momentous choice; the friendship of a secretary of state— th...

NATIVES OF TORKE'S PENINSULA— PORT VICTORIA. We have been favored with the following interesting report by Mr Hughes, surveyor :— REPORT OF SEVERAL, INTERVIEWS WITH THE ABORIGINES AT PORT VICTORIA, BY J. H. HUGHES. North Adelaide December 12, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

NATIVES OF YORKE'S PENINSULA— PORT VICTORIA. We have been favored with the following inter- esting report by Mr Hughes, surveyor :— REPORT OF SEVERAL INTERVIEWS WITH THE ABORIGINES AT PORT VICTORIA, BY J. H. HUGHES. North Adelaide, December 12, 1840. In the month of December last I proceeded across Yorke's Peninsula with my party, for the purpose of completing the Government surveys at Port Victoria, but it appeared, on arriving there, that the natives had discovered my depot of stores, and had rendered every-   thing useless—tent, clothing, rations, instru-   ments, &c. They ahd located upon the spot, and made an ineffectual attempt to surround the party, but were driven off without any shots being fired. The damage thus effected on the stores entirely prevented me from pro- ceeding with the survey, and having been absent five weeks, we returned to Adelaide At a moderate calculation,the loss sustained   was £150. Before we left the Pen...

TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. (From Wednesday's Chronicle. ) At the meeting of the Council held on the 10th instant, a letter from the hon. the Colonial Se-   cretary was read, requesting the assistance of the Council in obtaining a census of the population of the town and country. The Town Clerk was instructed to reply to the letter, stating that the Council would be happy to co-operate with Go- vernment in so desirable an object, and requesting to be furnished with the Government forms, and to be informed when the census is to be taken. The Town Clerk was also instructed to apply to Government, as authorised by section 38 of the Municipal Act, for an advance of £ 250 from the Treasury, for furnishitig the Council room, and the offices of the Town Clerk and Town Sur- veyor, and to defray the unavoidable weekly expences of the Corporation—the money to be refunded from the proceeds of the first rate, as provided for in the Act. A Committee was appointed to purchase fur- nitu...

THE SMUT BALLS OR PEPPER BRAND. (From the Penny Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

THE SMUT BALLS OR PEPPER BRAND. (From the Penny Magazine.) Kew, February 21st, 1833. F. B. (We are indebted for the following interesting paper to Francis Bauer, Esq.. a gentleman who has attained a most deserved celebrity for his most valuable discoveries connected with the diseases of grain, the most important article of human food.] The existence of this destructive disease in wheat has long been known to every agriculturist in England, as well as by those on the Continent ; but the real cause of it is yet very little known; not only by the practical cultivator, but even by scientific authors. Such erroneous and contra- dictory opinions have been advanced that the farmer cannot possibly derive any satisfactory information from them. I hope, however, that the following observations and illustrations of facts may be acceptable to some of the numerous readers of the Penny Magazine. This disease in occasioned by the seeds of an extremely minute parasitic fungus, of the genus uredo, b...

No title [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

This disease, like the Smut Balls or Pepper Brand, is occasioned by a very minute parasatic fungus, of the genus uredo, which Persoon (in his Synopsis Methodica Fungorum) notices as uredo segetum. It is, however, of a decidedly different species from uredo faetida, which oc- cassions the Smut Balls or Pepper Brand, illustrated in my former paper. The uredo segetum is distinguished from uredo faetida, not being much more than one half the size, and by being perfectly scentless; whilst uredo faetida is characterised by an extremely offensive smell. The manner in which uredo segetum acts upon the plants which it attacks is also very different, and the effect much more destructive than that of uredo faetida, which only attacks the grains in which it vegetates, but sel- dom bursts; whereas the uredo segetum not only generally destroys the whole ear, but even the leaves and stem. Further, uredo segetum attacks not only barley, but wheat and oats; and I have been informed that other specie...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial find records."—SHAKSPERE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial find records."— SHAKSPERE. THE OBSTINATE MAN.—" An obstinate man does not hold opinions; they hold him; for when he is once possessed with an error, it is like a devil, only cast out with difficulty. Whatsoever   be lays hold on, like a drowning man, he never loses, though it do but help to sink him the sooner. His ignorance is abrupt and inacces- sible; impregnable both by art and nature, and   will hold out to the last, though it has nothing but rubbish to defend. It is as dark as pitch, and sticks as fast to anything it lays hold on. His skull is so thick that it is proof against any reason, and never cracks but on the wrong side, just opposite to that against which the impression is make, which surgeons say does happen very frequently. The slighter and more inconsistent his opinions are, tbe faster be holds them, other- wise they would fall asunder of themselves, for   opinions that are false ough...

THE MILMENRURA MURDERS [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 26 December 1840

THE MILMENRURA MURDERS THERE is something unwise, at least, on the part of the abettors of the Milmenrura mur-   ders, to lose no opportunity of keeping alive the subject, and of twisting every incident info an approval of that fearful transaction. We have avoided, as far as possible, and irritating reference to it, and we shall continue to do so. But we cannot refuse to place upon record the following address of Mr Justice Willis to a native of New South Wales tried and convicted of murder, and which we request our readers to note has been cited as an evidence in favor of the summary execution of the Milmenrura natives by the South Australian police, without trial, proof, conviction, or legal authority!   "The next prisoner sentenced was the aborigi-   nal native convicted of the murder of John Dillon. His Honor addressed him to the following effect:     —Billy, otherwise Neville's Billy, you, a wild abor- iginal native of New Sou...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 January 1841

TO CORRESPONDENTS. It is with grade regret that we are still compelled to onit several communications and articles in type. We thank Sampson for his proposal, but we can do wit the jawbone. The letter of Pater Familias will be in- serted. We believe the nuisance of which he so justly compains is at present under the consideration of the   Council. Peter's "Qualifications for office" is quaint   and correct enough—but somewhat too personal. Could he not describe classes rather than individuals?

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1841. PARTING DINNER TO DAVID McLAREN, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 January 1841

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1841. PARTING DINNER TO DAVID McLAREN, ESQ. WE refer our readers to the Report of the Public Dinner given on Thursday to Mr McLaren. The tribute of respect thus paid to a gentleman who has occupied so prominent a position in the colony during the last four years, is equally honorable to Mr McLaren and to the colonists. The Manager of the South Australian Company, wielding an im- mense influence for good or for evil, was nec- cessarily the object of divided feelings. Re- garded with all possible favor and affection by those whom he obliged, and openly opposed or secretly disliked by those who considered themselves either above his power or treated not according by their own standard of merit or desert, his task was a difficult one, well calculated to try nerve, and judgment, and patience. That Mr McLaren has been in- fallible, or has invariably acted upon right or sound and comprehensive views, may not be maintained. But h...

THE "TIMES" AND SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 January 1841

THE "TIMES" AND SOUTH AUSTRALIA. By nothing more than the extent and general accuracy of its commercial information has the times gained the first place among the journals of the day; and to its " City articles" in especial, from the most authentic source, the springs and bearings of the important events that influence buying and selling. Over the broad damp sheet, in office and counting-house, on 'Change and at   Lloyd's, hang the careful countenances of sub- stantial men. But what must be the sidmay of the whole commonwealth of "constant readers," when their oracle presents them with half a column not of the ordinary profound and infallible vaticination, but with half a column of sheer ignorant nonsense! It is, as we observed in a   former number, a melancholy proof of the pre- vailing ignorance on Colonial subjects, that the Times should venture to put forth the prepos-   terous rubbish which sometimes is shot into its   pages—a...

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY—SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ALMANACK FOR 1-41. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 January 1841

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY—SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ALMANACK FOR 1-41. In making our usual periodical report of the progress of the colony, we are glad to have an opportunity of resorting to the pages of the South Australian Almanack for the present year, just published, and transferring from it to our column a mass of statistical and other information of great interest and importance, to the end of November last. To complete our summary, we have brought down the   shipping list to the year just closed. The following is the account of the Agricul- tural and Pastoral Progress of the Colony : — The progress which has taken place in agricul-   tural and grazing operations during the last year   is the most striking and at the same time, the   most substantial and gratifying proof of South   Australia's onward progress. When we last ap-   peared before the public, the country, with the exception of about 500 acres immediately around &...

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.—No. 4. ENTOMOLOGY. —LEPIDOPTERA. NO. II. NATURE AMATOR. December 29th, 1840. The largest butterfly that the neighbourhood of our city can produce, is, as before states, about the size of the English Vanessa 10; it is seldom seen except at the warmest season of the year, and is at all times scarcer than the Tortoise-shell; it was by far more numerous than I have ever since seen it in December, 1839, keeping principally to the Mount Lofty   range, where on fine days literally a dozen or more arose at every step of the pedestrian. In   the vicinity of the North Para River, about 27 miles N.E. of Adelaide, a still larger species at present may be seen, and of more lively and diversified colors, similar in many respects to     the English Fritillary butterfly, but on a larger scale; this last mentioned species I believe     rather exceeds in size any of our British butter- fli...
