MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 January 1841

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. ON Thursday, the day fixed for the weekly meet-   ing of the Council, a quorum was not obtained. The following members only were preent. The Mayor; Councillors Bligh, Hailes, Lambert and Wilson. His Worship read an apology from Alderman Davis, for non-attendance on account of ill health. The Mayor state that it was with very great reluctance he alluded to the absence of the Members of the Council, and that nothing but an imperative sense of duty would have induced him to do so on the present occasion. It had been found a difficulty at ordinary meetings to obtain a quorum of seven members out of the nineteen of which the Council was composed; and although a special meeting of the Council was summoned for yesterday, preparatory to the public meeting, on the important subject of the streets, a sufficient number of members did not attend to form a quorum, and a similar want of attention has been experienced this morning, which has not only been the me...

MR [?] McPIERSON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 January 1841

MR HUNTLY McPHERSON. On Saturday the 23rd and Monday, the 25th instant, an inquisition was held before the Sheriff in the Supreme Court house, in pursuance   of a writ at un lunatico inquirendo, in the case of the above-named gentleman. The   jury consisted of Messrs Stevenson, Brown,     Hallett, Ferguson, Stokes, Haback, Finniss,   Baker, Nation, Gilbert, Hamilton, and Newen - ham — Mr. Stevenson, foreman. Mr Hardy ap- peared in support of the writ; Mr Mann for Mr   McPherson; and Mr Fisher for the Bank of South   Australia.   The Jury having been sworn, the Sheriff read the writ, and remarked, that in order to justify a     verdict of insanity it would be necessary to prove not merely that Mr McPherson was of weak in-     tellect, or possessed peculiarities, but the Jury   must ere they found a verdict of lunucy, be   satisfied that he was...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRATIAN RIGESTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 January 1841

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRATIAN REGISTER. I am, Gentlemen, Yours, &c. N. GENTELMEN- The Sydney Gazette contains the appointment of St James Dowling, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, to sit, hear, and determine all causes in matters at any time depending on the said Supreme Court in Equity, and coming on to be heard and decided at   Sydney; and also John Kinchella, L. L. D., to dis- charge the duties of Master in Equity in the said Supreme Court, together with such other duties belonging to the said Court as may be compatible with that office, until Her Majesty's pleasure be known. Will any of your readers inform me what provision has been made in this colony, to determine any matters or causes in equity?   [We believe the Judge of the Supreme Court possesses, if he does not exercise, powers in South Australia similar to those of the Lord Chancellor in England.—Editors of   Register.]

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 January 1841

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. I am, &c, CIVIS. GENTLEMEN—On coming home from South to North Adelaide last evening, about half-past eight o'clock, on crossing the bridge I had to pass several encampments of the natives, who appeared to be busy about some extraordinary ceremonies. After having proceeded about two or three hun- dred yards from the encampments, one of them ran from behind a tree and stopped me in the centre of the road, demanding money, at the same time holding a waddy up in his hand in a threatening attitude; but having a roll of paper in my hand, which I also immediately lifted up in a like attitude, he retreated, using the most filthy and disgusting language. A few evenings since I was driving a female with two children past the same encampments, when a number of them came out from their wurleys, shoating, hal-   looing, and dancing before the horse's head. I had great difficulty in controlling him; indeed, if   he...

THE NEW THEORY OF COLONIZATION. [?] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 January 1841

THE NEW THEORY OF COLONIZATION. [CONCLUDED FROM OUR LAST.] Had this been the [solo?] practical result achieved by the [?] within the first ten years after the [?] of it there would have been no cause for discouragement, in all such cases, the first grand object is to clear and try           the way, and to [?] the fruits. Accidents and         oversights will commonly occur, which, if ex-         perienced on a small scale, may be rectified, and     the experience will inspire confidence rather than                   alarm. But a single great mistake in the outset,           however easily presented from recurrin...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1841 THE NATIVES AND THEIR PROTECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 February 1841

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1841 THE NATIVES AND THEIR PROTECTOR. THE Attention which the wretched neglect of the native is at length beginning to excite, may possible lead to some amelioration of their condition, and to an earnest and well- directed endeavour for their civilization. On all hands it is admitted that under the present Protectorate, these poor savages are in a more degraded state than ever; and so far from having advanced one solitary step in moral, physical, or religious improvement, they have retrogaded in the most fearful manner. Let     any men of common sense regard the hundreds   of natives who infest the park land—over whom   the Protector possesses and can exercise no   control—and who crowd into Adelaide to beg or to steal, or to become the prey of horrible disease, deny this statement if he can. We have said before, and we repeat again, that the inefficiency o...

NEW CHURCH, PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 February 1841

NEW CHURCH, PORT ADELAIDE. The first pile of this building was driven on Monday last, by the Hon. Captain Sturt, Assistant Commissioner, in the presense of a large assemblage of the inhabitants of the Port and neighbourhood. Appropriate servi-     ces were performed by the Rev. Messrs   Howard and Farrell. A paper, with an in- scription, showing the date, the names of the Committee, and of those who took part in the ceremony, was sealed up in a bottle, and enclosed in the timber. Great credits is due to the inhabitants of the Port for the alacrity   and spirit displayed to secure for themselves the means of religious instruction, and the liberal manner in which they have come for- ward with their subscriptions in support of the building in highly commendable. The Com- mittee deserve praise for the energy and zeal manifested in the cause. The expence of the building will be about three hundred and fifty pounds, towards which about t...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 February 1841

VARIETIES. The following maxims of Bishop Middleton are worthy of record and imitation:— Persevere against discouragements. Keep your temper. Employ leisure in study and always have some work on hand. Be punctual and methodical in   business, and never procrastinate. Never be in a hurry. Preserve self-possession, and do not be     talked out of a conviction. Rise early, and be   an economist of time. Maintain dignity, without the appearance of pride; manner is something with every body and every thing with some. Be guarded in discourse, attentive, and slow to speak. Never acquiesce in immoral or pernicious opinsions. Be not forward to assign reasons to those who have no right to ask. Think nothing in conduct unimportant and indifferent. Rather set than follow examples. Practise strict tem- perance; and, in all your transactions, remember the final account. SMUT IN WHEAT.—To prevent smut in wheat, put into a large tub as much water ...
