NEW BANKRUPT AND INSOLVENT LAW IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844
NEW BANKRUPT AND INSOLVENT LAW IN ENGLAND. SOME time ago we published an article in re ference to the new measure for abolishing im- prisonment for debt in England. Since that measure was introduced, a Bill has been framed for remodelling the Bankrupt and insolvent law, iu which several important improvements have been made. One of the most valuable of them (besides the abolition of imprisonment) is the constitution of a Committee of Creditors (As- signees) to assist the Official Assignee. We sometime ago recommended this pian to be adopted in the forthcoming Act for this colony, and have no doubt it would be highly effica- cious. We subjoin a precis of the English Bill f_FROM TUE SUN.} Amalgamates the Bankruptcy and Insol- vency Laws. Constitutes a Court for the administration of the amalgamated Act, and empowers the Queen to appoint-Judges thereof. Such Court to be of Record, and to have powers to try by jury offences against the pro- visions of the Act. Defines Acts of Insolvency...

INDIA. THE MUTINY OF THE 64TH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844
INDIA. THE MUTINY OF THE 6ÍTH. We regret lo discover, from subsequent and more authentic information, that we did injustice tc Major General Hunter in our observations last week on the mutiny of the GV.h N.I. We liave since received a more correct version of the transaction, and find that it reflects no ordi- nary credit on the self-possession, courage, and tact of the General. The regiment appears to have exhibited the most unequivocal spirit of mutiny at Shikarpore. The tefractory Sepoys not only refused their pay, and demanded their discbarge from a service they ventured to de- scribe as faithless, and pelted their own officers with clods and brickbats, but invited other regiments to join in the mutiny, and proceeded to organise a tniuiature system of government in their own body, appointing one to the office ¡ of Governor General, another to the post of j General in-Chief, and others to subordinate j situations. in these circumstances, General ; Hunter ordered them back lo Sukku...

STEAM NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844
SrEAVï NAVIGATION. THE New York Herald gives the following par ticulars of the new steam frigate, Princeton, with Ericson's transversal screw propeller : - " This¡ beautiful vessel, looking like a splendid packet, lay off the battery, and the crew were taken on board of her by a small steamer. A fter ali had reached her upper deck, which is flush fore and aft, her propeller was set iu motion, and the noble Princeton ran up »he North River, and then down the Bay, in a gale of wind, and with- out a sail set, to the astonishment of every one. j This was done to display her points, and show that the machinery is so perfect in its movements ' as to caus* not the slightest jar in the ship When off the Phoenix Foundry one of her, monster guns, measuring sixteen feet in length, and capable of carrying a ball weighing two I hundred and fifty pounds, was fired off', and, in- stead of making everything shake, the report was a neat, finished one, and not unlike the crack of a rifle, on an enlar...

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844
IMMIGRATION. THE immense importance of immigration to this coiouy has never, we are persuaded, been pro- perly appreciated, even by the colonists, and much less in Britain. Our statesmen at home seem to regard the colonies as a sort of dernier resort to which they can send people in times of distress, but we are afraid they are little alive to the necessity of supplying young settlements with a constant stream of people, from a regard to the prosperity of the settlements themselves. The great struggle at home is against evils ari I sing out of a too dense population, and we pre- sume that they cannot conceive the idea of a de- ficient population, or of a community suffering from such deficiency. On no other principle can we understand the cold neglect with which every application for a renewal of emigration, both on ¡he part of his Excellency the Governor and of the colonists during the last two years, has been treated. This, too, would illustrate the very extraordinary instructions...
