THE PORT LINCOLN HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 May 1840
THE PORT LINCOLN HERALD. j TN an article which appeared in the Port Lincoln Herald, of Tuesday last, we are sorry to peiceive a disposition to carp at some observations which lately fell from us, upon the subject of his Excellency's visit to that rising and important sett]POIpnt,. Nothing was farther from our intention than to re flect, either upon the harbour, or upon the capabilities of that interesting lo cality. Our views «pou the subject were these,-that it is no part of his Excellency's dtitv, either as Governor, or as Resident Commissioner^ to per form long trips, either like the one to the Murray, or similar to the one to Port Lincoln itself,-while the dirties of howe require his more pressing and attentive consideration. Had this been o.ur-only objection to bis Excellency's de^aTrww*fr«mHirrme,-at the time he peculiarly chose for this visit, we should have conceived ourselves fully justified iu the remarks we threw out : but, when we look, to his Excellency's late Abstract ...

VARIETIES --"*.?"? HER MAJESTY'S FAVORITE MONKEY.-Some short time since a present was made to ber Majr-8ty of a loung, active, and very knowing, monkey, and it was'daly domiciled in a cage, maoofactored expressly for bira, and placed in one of the apartments at Windsor Castle. Jacko, who understood nearly every word thai was said to him, was a very great favourite of her Majesty and of many about the court. During the early part of Ust week symptoms of indisposition man ifested themselves, and Jacko continuing to get [ worse, the attendance of Mr. Cross, of the Surrey Zoological Gardens, was commanded at the ' Castle. Mr. Cross arrived at Windsor on Saturday morning last, but too late to save the royal favourite. He was then placed in a wai m bath ' and afterwards wrapped op in flannel, and in that state expired the same evening.

PORT PHILLIP NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 26 May 1840
PORT PHILLIP NEWS. AÜCTÍOX COMPANY":-OÜ Wednesday a foll and important meeting was held al the Lamb Inn, to es-ablish a Joint Stock Auc ton Company on the recognised principles of open election and I general suffrage. Overture* were made from the Company, whose assumption of self-constituted dignitaries we have bad reason s^strongly to re probate. As the directors, however, with a strange degree of inconsistency, declined to call upon their own nominated placemen to yield back their situa tions, no junction could be effect eil. Proceedings were adopted to frame the rules of a new Com pany upon such grounds as would insure the greatest benefit to the largest number-the purest principle of legislation which cab be conceived. On the close of the appointed boxiness, a legation I nf five gentlera« a was nominated tu confer with an j equal number of the opposite party. An interview was held at the Lamb In», characterised however by a stormy debate, in which we änderst ind Mr. I Welsh's de...
THE MASTER BAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 26 May 1840
THE MASTbK BAKEKS. THE readers of fie Southern Australian will be happy to Hud, that we had not over-slatt dtl* mailer, when we lately informed them, that some of I he master bakers had retired from the combination into which they had entered, to raise the price of bread. We are happy to slate that the number, who so retired, bas since increased, and that in the ge ne: ality of cases, the 21b loaf is now selling for one shilling. We wish it distinctly to be understood, that we en* tertain m hostility to the bakers, more than to any other class of the commu nity, and, that, if, we expressed our selves strongly upon the subject, it arose from a conscientious conviction of the duty we owed to thé publie at large. We are glad to perceive that so many of the master bakers have had the good sense to retire from a conflict, in which they were sure to enlist the whole host of public feeling against them, and that they a:e willing to content themselves with something like the fair and legití...
