THE ILLUMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 29 May 1840
THE ILLUMINATION. SOME disappointment has we under &nbsp; &nbsp; stand, been expressed at the brevity of our notice of the illumination on Mon day last. Want of space alone preven- ted us, on that occasion, from entering upon it at greater length. The illumi- nation was general, and considering the scattered nature of the town, had &nbsp; &nbsp; a very good effect. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It is due to Mr. Robinson to say, &nbsp; that no exertions on his part were &nbsp; spared to render the transparencies as &nbsp; &nbsp; striking and effective as possîble. In this he was assisted by Mr. Opie, who also deserves praise for his exertions. The followíng is a list of the trans- parencies executed by Messrs. Robin- &nbsp; &nbsp; son and Opie.

THE readers of the Southern Australian are aware of our anxiety to expedite the granting of a Municipal Corporation Bili to the city of Adelaide, as also of our wishes that this bili should be submitted to tbe consideration of the public, before it was passed into a law. The delay which has attended the pro duction of this measure bas provoked our remonstance, and we may not,, per haps, have been very guarded in the expression of our sentiments upon it. Of this the Register, as if aroused tu a state of numomanianism, has taken the utmost advantage. The position the Register has taken,-namely, that of notifying every act of the Legislative Council, since Col. Ga wier's arrival, reminds us forcibly of SAMUEL TAY LOR COLERIDGE'S advice.-4« Bark not too closely on the heels of truth, lest you get your brains kicked ...
