VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 May 1840
i VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (Jua Van Diemen's Land papers, received by yesterday's post, are up to May the 9th, but they contain little news of general inter« est. A man named Budds, whom the * Corn wall Chronicle,* denounces as a Methodist villain, and a' Bible Depository scoundrel, had fled from Launceston, under the imputa tion of haviner swindled Iiis creditors to the amount of £8,000. The ' Chronicle* bes tows in two consecutive papers a tolerable share of abuse upon this individual, and even goes so far as to insert a profile of him en graved on wood, but stops the pfess on the 9th of May, to tell us that he has returned. Budds, it seems, was employed as agent I&lt;I ihe Rev. Dr. Browne, aud one or two other respectable settlers, who are supposed to he heavy losers by his defalcations ;-if the * Cornwall Chronicle* is to be credited ? A meeting had been lately held at Hobart Town, with the view to the adoption of such means as would ensure a sufficient supply of free labour t...

RATIONALE OF CHARGING INTEREST UPON BOOK DEBTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 May 1840
RATIONALE OF CHARGING INTEREST UPON BOOK DEBTS. lae Calcutta Courier announces that aa «ct bas been jost passed, providing: tbat a Creditor-shall be entitled to interest at the current rate on the debt owing to bim "from the time when demand of payment shalt have been made in writing, so as -such demand shall give notice to the debtor that interest will be claimed from the date of such demand until the term of payment." This is no boon to the fair tradesman, it is only his right, for when lie sells his goods be does «o with such an addition to their cost -price as will pay for the interest of capital employed during a reasonable time, and will allow to himself a profit that'will enable bim to live as a respectable Hchiten ; but ij lie is to have that capital locked np¿ or lent, ipr it is the Fame thing, by his customer retaining the goods for months, not to say years, without paying for them, then be is wronged of so much interest or profit, which be would be entitled'to if the mone...
GOVERNMENT EXPENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 May 1840
GOVERNMENT EXPENSES. IN our paper of Friday last, we de scended, in compliance with the chal lenge thrown out by the Register, on the preceding week, to something like detail upon the subject of bis Ex cellency's financial minute. From that detail,-as far as facts and figures could do so,-we showed that the pro per and legitimate income of the govern ment bad been exceeded in ils expen-, diture, to «he amount of £11,338 18s. 6d., for the quarter ending December, 1839. What may have been the excess of the three preceding, quarters! it is impossible for us at present to form more than a mere conjecture. Supposing, however, the expenses of the three preceding quarters-of which the accounts are yet unaudited to have equalled those of the quarter in which they were audited-a very reasonable supposition,-we im ve in the space of-4 One year, an excess-of expenditure to the amount of £45,330 Ils.

SUPPLY OF FLOUR FOR THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 May 1840
SÜPPLY &lt;WF FLO0Ít¿©R;THe COLONY. A HEPORT of a meeting upon the above subject appeared in our paper pf Tuesday last, and a notice of an adjourned meeting upon the sam* sub ject, will be found in another part of our columns to-day. : It will be in the recollection of our readers, that at the former of these meetings, Messrs. Beck and Co., and Messrs. Garratt and Fisher, proposed to supply the-colony with flour to any extent, at the rate of £37 " lt3s. per.toji. Xjhjjá pto^0s^,w^s^eïet% red to a committee of management, who, after attentive consideration, gave it as their decided opinion that the pro- j posai should not be entertained. In the expression of this opinion, we have every reason to suppose that they were actuated by the desire to benefit the colony upon trie most extensive scale, It did not appear to them that the period to which Me*srs. Beck and Co. and Messrs. Garratt and Fisher proposed to extend the ful filment of their . contract, would meet the wishes of t...

ANTI-FLOUR MONOPOLY. I IN our paper of luesnay last, we gave a re port of a meeting held on the previous day, with a view of supplying the colony with flour at a cheap rate. Pursuant to a puhlie notice, the adjourned meeting was held on the following day, David McLaren, Esq., in the chair.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 May 1840
PORT PHILLIP. OUR Port Phillip papers are op to April the 18th, but contain but little watch it is worth while to extract. The proprietors of the " Port Phillip Ga zette,"-the Messrs. Arden and Strode, have, we perceive, been subjected to a prose cution on the part of Constable Wright, backed by Captain Lonsdale, the Resident I Police Maltrate, of Port Phillip, for an alleged libel against the former. As might be expected, the Editor of that paper is all fire and fury, denouncing theacts of his oppo nents as " the acts of a pack of jackalls, whose experience in villany and crime are so freely made the means of oppression to the free subjects of the land.'* We do certainly think that both Messrs. Strode and Arden were subjected to severities which vpere by no means necessary to secure the ends of justice, and that an indulgence in these, on the part of their opponents, must necessarily turn the tide of public opinion against them Hie case stands over to the Quarter sessions. On the 4...
