J IT is with deep regret we feel ourselves called ti poo to animadvert upon what we deem a want ofattention, on the part of the Coloni sation Commissioners, to the real and vital' interests of this colony. We have reason to know» that the commissioners were informed, upwards of twelve months ago, of the scarcitv" ?of provisions here, and of the necessity there -existed to send out from England, with every fresh supply of emigrants, a sufficient quan-! tity of provisions-say, of flour and pork -especially-to meet the wants of the intending; settlers for the first twelve months. That -such^a reasonable proposition should not have 'been acceded to-or, at all events that atten tion to it should have been so long delayed-is' to us a matter of the greatest surprise.

CONSPIRACY AMONG THE BAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 19 May 1840

CONSPIRACY" AMONG THE BAKERS. OUR article upon this subject, on Friday last, has, we have reason to know, created quite a sensation among the Baking fraternity Thh, we intended it should do, and we are happy to findit has not failed of its effect The idea of a miserable junto-such as the bakers of this town-forming themse Iv^s into a kind of secret society-and binding themselves under fines and penalties to carry out their seifi>h desiarns to the injury and ir» defiance of the public-is really too bad. A meeting, we understand, was convened in the evening of »ur last day of publication, but the particulars have not been ail «wed to transpire. In England, a meeting called under such circumstances as was the last we noticed, would have been decidedly illegal, and, we have no hesitation in station that the parties binding themselves under fines and penalties to injure the public would hav<? committed ati indictable offence- We are indisposed to express ourselves strongly ...

It ivas doubtless under all the circumstances of the case, one of the most important that had ever been held in the coolny. The idea of subjecting them selves-as ii had been justly termed-to the enormous taxation «f two shillings for tht 21 b loaf-a price which was current som* ' two months ago-was altogether unuidurable The importance of the object which the) had met to promote was self-evident, in fae itwas one in which the interests of the Colo nists at large was deeply involved.

TRICKS OF THE COLONIAL OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 19 May 1840

[TRICKS OF TBE COLONIAL OFFICE. LAST week we had occasion to say — " Our readers must perceive that the function of this j ournal     as " an eye upon the colonial office," is by no means a sinecure." The remark was suggested by two or three sentences which preceded it, and which we now reprint. " Mr. Charles Buller has accepted the office of Political Agent to a body of capitalists in New South Wales. To his attention we would com- mend as a subject of very useful inquiry, the   mode in which that portion of the New South   Wales Emigration Fund, which has not been diverted from its proper purpose, has been ex- pended. Mr. Elliott, the Agent General, for Emigration, has neglected this year to make a   Report ; or, if he has made one, the Colonial Office has neglected to present it to Parliament.     Why this mystery ! We should be sorry to   trench on Mr. Buller's proper function...
