FARMING AND GARDENING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

FARMING AND GARDENING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THE fruits of the splendid success that has attended all well-conducted argicultural ex- periments may be everywhere discerned in the activity with which the preparations for next season's crop are carried on. The harvest- home is scarcely ended ere the farmers are hard at work, extending and completing their                                         fences, breaking up new ground, re-ploughing the stubbles, and making every preparation for the coming seed time. Towards this end, we are delighted to notice that the Agricultural Society is about to call the settlers together,   for the purpose of exhibiting the best speci- mens of seed grain; and we are sure that an &n...

SAVINGS BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

SAVINGS BANKS. It has for some time been to us a matter of considerable surprise that, in this colony, where the working man has so good an opportunity of saving a few shillings out of his week's       wages, no scheme has been brought forward to enable him to dispose of his savings to advan- tage. The immense benefit conferred by the establishment of Savings Banks in Europe and in other parts of the world, have been such as must raise in the bosom of every philanthropist a wish to see their influence extended still fur- ther. Even the wild deserts of Africa now boast of a Savings Bank, and though, we believe, this cannot as yet be said of Aus- tralia, we hope the time is not many weeks distant when we shall see our young Colony setting the example to her elder sisters, by   the establishment of an institution which could not fail to be signally beneficial. With the view of calling public attention more fully to this subject, we ap...

THE IMPOUNDING BILL. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

THE IMPOUNDING BILL. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. I am, &c, S. D. [There is so much truth in the representation of our correspondent, that we trust the point he alludes to will be conceded by his Excellency and Council.—Editors.] GENTLEMEN— I have been informed that when   the present Impounding Act passes the Legis- lative Council, it will have the effect of raising the price of milk to the inhabitants of Adelaide from sixpence to the shilling per quart. This       will unfortunately be a heavy tax to pay for the preservation of arible and unenclosed pasture lands,   and it will be particularly felt at a time when we have so many heavy assessments in prospect for municipal purposes. I sincerely hope, how- ever, that the subject will be reconsidered, and that the operation of the measure will be limited,   in the first instance, to enclosed lands only.

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, &c. A CONSIGNER. GENTLEMEN— I would beg leave, through the medium of your widely diffused journal, to Call the intention of the merchants of Adelaide to a mAtter affecting both them and the community to a great degree. It has been the practice to allow a certain description of tobacco to be sold free of duty for the purpose of being used for cleansing sheep, and in so far as this is done it is certainly well; but any one acquainted with the country knows perfectly that a mere fraction only of the tobacco sold publicly as for sheepwash is consumed in that manner. In importing tobacco, a duty of 1s. 6d. per lb. is exigible, and the same on snuff—although British made, and paying a still higher duty there, while no drawback is allowed on exportation!   Snuff thus pays in duty about 3s. 8d. per lb., and must be sold at a very high rate to return even a moderate profit to the shipper. Now, however, that sheepwash...

OLD GOVERNMENT HUT DESTROYED.— The thatched building occupied by Governor Hind-   marsh, as his residence, and more recently used as the Private Secretary's Office, was destroyed by   fire on Tuesday evening last. A great mass of official documents has been burnt, and we regret to add, that many papers of great private value to the Governor, have also been lost. Strong sus- picions exist that the fire was wilful. Mr Mac- pherson who resided at Government House for a considerable time after his arrival in the colony, and who for some time past has been considered in a state ot partial lunacy, was charged on Wednesday last before Captain O'Halloran, Com- missioner of Police, and several other magistrates,   with the crime of wilful fire-raising, and has been committed for trial for the offence at the ensuing assizes. We understand that application is to be made to the Judge to-day to admit Mr Macpherson     &nbsp...

REPORT FROM MR EYRE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

REPORT FROM MR EYRE. I have the honor to be, Sir, Your very obedient servant, EDW. JOHN EYRE. To Geo. Hall, Esq., Private Secretary, &c. Soon after we had gone to press on Saturday, the Waterwitch from Fowler's Bay, with despatches from Mr Eyre, arrived. We subjoin the report of Mr Eyre's proceedings, which is merely confirmatory of his former observa- tions on the coast line so far as Point Bell. The nature of the interior in that region is still unknown, although from the absence of all water courses to the southward, it seems certain that towards the north and westward there must exist either large rivers or an inland sea. Mr Eyre was confidently expected to reach King George's Sound, and thus open up the land communication with Swan River. His next report cannot fail to be most inter- esting. Point Fowler, 17th Dec., 1840. Sir —By the return of the Waterwitch, I have the honor to furnish you, for the information of his Excellency the Governor, with a brief account of our...

THE UNITARIANS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

THE UNITARIANS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. A SECOND UNITARIAN. GENTLEMEN— I read with great pleasure and satisfaction in your paper, of the 8th inst. a letter from a Unitarian, and knowing that you are ever guided by common sense and common justice, I trust that you will give insertion to this   letter, if it be not too long, as early as possible.   The writer remarks that although every other   sect has its place of worship, the Unitarians have none; this is true at present, but I trust it will not be so long —and I have frequently, since being here, reflected on the propability of their   being able, for a long time to come, to be in suffi- cient numbers to have courage to form themselves into a congregation. I say courage, because every one knows how much their creed differs from others, and what difficulties must be over- come with regard to the opinions formed of them   by the rest of the com...

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.—No. 5. ENTOMOLOGY ORTHOPTURA, No. II. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 January 1841

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY.—No. 5. ENTOMOLOGY ORTHOPEURA, No. II. NATURE AMATOR. Jan. 12th 1841. I am at present, as may be seen, hardly giving more than a summary or general outline of the different orders of insects; after which, I shall proceed to notice more particularly the various. species which this colony produces. The     Mantis I mentioned in my last, is not alone   the only one I have seen, but also the only species I have even heard of, as being for [?]       the island. The [?] the Bushman's       Hotel [?] Gawler [?], which is well known   to many of my colonial readers, and was pre- sented to me by the landlord, Mr Robertson. It was seen for about a month at different parts of the house, before it was taken—and as it lives principally on flies and other small insects, it was no doubt quite in its element during this time. This specie...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial found records." —SHAKSPERE. THE SPECULATOR.— If you could only contem-   plate the spectator when comfortably reclining in his easy chair—he is perusing with delight the prospectus of some wonderful company, to which lie is to brin;; uil Us inriusti-y—his friends all their money! How triumphantly he calculates every chance of gain! The more apparently impracticable the undertaking the more certain he is of success. Try to propose to the elite of the intelligent capitalists some simple and feasible   plan that holds out the expectation of only an   honest profit, and every body will laugh at you. An honest profit indeed! One would as soon beg   in the streets. Who would attach his name to     such a silly affair? An honest profit! No man     of note would share the responsibility of your scheme. What we require is a fortune made instantly...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 23 January 1841

TO CORRESPONDENTS. Q. is sufficiently satirical, and were the objects of the meeting he alludes to less praiseworthy, we might be     templed to publis his letter. A friend who was present on the occasion, informs us that the only speeches he could recognize as having been really spoken were those of His Honor the Judge and the Rev. T. Q. Stow. The only light we can throw on the Candle Company must be     through the medium of advertisements. The parody on the Blue Bells Of Scotland is excellent, but we cannot publish it. We have heard from other quarters the same   assertion which R. Q. M, makes. It is altogether incorrect. Our invariable rule is never to announce a Birth, Marriage, or death, but as an advertisement, and then only in the precise terms which the Parties communicate. The notice in last Register was subjected to the same rule, and   published in the exact words furnished to us. Severla lette...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1841. GOVERNOR GAWLER'S VISIT TO THE OUTPORTS-LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 23 January 1841

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1841. GOVERNOR GAWLER'S VISIT TO THE OUTPORTS—LEGISLATION. The whole public business of the colony has suddenly been brought to a dead halt. Go-   vernor Gawler has left Adelaide on "a visit to the OUTPORTS." Where the outports are, or what in South Australia that mighty com- mercial term implies, we neither know nor can venture to define. There are police stations, indeed, at Port Lincoln and En- counter Bay; but Port Adelaide is, as yet, the outport of the province. Thither his Ex-   cellency has not gone. He has gone to " visit the outports;" and we repeat, we know not where or what they are. To those better in- formed, and, for-a-con-sid-er-a-tion, more   complaisant than ourselves, we leave the task of recording the discovery and describing the exact position of the "outports," content with tho bare fact that at the only period during Governor Gawler's administration when his p...

THE ATTORNEYS MONOPOLY ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 23 January 1841

THE ATTORNEY'S MONOPOLY ACT. WE hasten to rectify a misapprehension into which we fell in our last in reference to this injudicious measure. We stated our belief that it had been framed by Judge Cooper. such, we learn, is not the case; and we regret that, through our means, the imputation that       His Honor had been a party, in any degree, to so crude and undigested an attempt at legis- lation, should have existed for a moment. Who the happy crontriver of the mess really is,   at present we cannot conjecture; but his pro- fessional feelings, we think, must be somewhat   shocked not merely by the mode in which the public treat his bantling, but by the civil though unkind sneering with which not a few of his legal brethren receive it. In our last, we sufficiently demonstrated some of the injus- tice which the measure proposes to inflict upon the public. We overlooked, however, a crown- ing absurdity. Should a client—gr...

THE LATE FIRE AT GOVERNMENT HUT.—SERIOUS DESTRUCTION OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS.-FIRE RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 23 January 1841

THE LATE FIRE AT GOVERNMENT HUT.—SERIOUS DESTRUCTION OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS.- FIRE RAIS ING. It is with extreme regret that we announce that nearly all the records and documents con-   nected with the legislative and executive departments of the Governments, have been destroyed by the late untoward burning of the   old Government hut. We cannot but think that the keeping records of as much public im  - portance in a hut, not merely reed thatched,   but partitioned and almost entirely composed   of the same dangerous material, exhibits an indefensible recklessness. With a government residence, built at an expense exceeding £10,000, of the best stone-work, and afford- ing ample accommodation; with public offices fire-proof, and where also every precaution for the safe keeping of the colonial archives had been provided at a cost of £15,000, it seems   unfortunate that a combustible hut should   have been chosen ...
