STORY OF AN AVALANCHE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 5 June 1840
STORY OP AN AVALANCHE. ! ON the ÎOih of March, 1755, a small cluster of houses at a place called Ber gemotte, near Derm on te, in thc tippet valley of Stura, was -entirely over whelmed by two vast bodies of snow that tumbled down from a neighbouring mountain. All the inhabitants were then within doors, except one Joseph Kochia, and his son, a lad of fifteen who were on the Toof of their house, clearing away the snow which had fallen during three days incessantly. A priest going to mass having just observed a body of snow tumbling from the mountain towards them, had ad vised them to come down. The man decended with great precipitation, and ried with his son ; but scarcely had hi gone forty steps before his son, whe followed him, fell down; on which, looking back, he saw his own and his neighbour's houses, in which wen tw v-tv «> persons ia all, coverec ! ti mountain of snow.

"'Vi/V?'1'." "S*, et omnt.in ?««m.-HOB. hr., lib.l. ep. 1,T ll. ADELAIDE : FHIDAT, JUNE 5,1840 MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL. IT is doubtless io the recollection of oar readers,that we promised on Tues day last, to notice some of the provi sions of the above bill, to which wo entertain decided objection. As a whole, we ha ve no hesitation in stating that it is based apon liberal principles, and that it is deserving tether of com mendation than censuré. There are some clauses, however, in the Bill, in its present form, which could not but prove Tatal to the measure, and which we therefore hope to see expunged. It would scarcely "be believed, for in stance, had we not the testimony-erf our senses, that a provision so utterly sub* versive of our rights' and liberties as citizens, and so destructive of'anything like independence on the part of the projected Corporation, as the following, could have found its way into the Bill.

CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 5 June 1840
CANADA. AU apprehension of insurrection and invasion having passed away, ihe Ca nadians are busy i? discussing the con duct of Sir George Arthur and the question of Responsible Government. The latter does not seem to make much progress. The speeches ot the present Secretary for the Colonies and his im mediate predecessor, in the twp Houses of the Imperial Parliament, were cited against the Reformers, hy the organs of the Local Government in both Pro vinces, as a species of unanswerable evidence ; but on the other hand, in Upper Canada, the advocates of Res ponsibility, nothing disheartened, avow a confident reliance ou the next elec tion of representatives, to make their superiority in numbers and influence manifest. There was to have been a great meeting of Reformers in the Home District ; but the Sheriff, au officiai partisan, refused to summon it: in default of which, il was intended to -hold [ess numerous assemblies in various places for the purpose of ex pressing approbation of...

On Monday last, pursuant to public uotice, a meeting was held at the rooms of Messrs.Bentham and Nonmus, for the purpose of sending an expedition into the northern interior of thin con. tinent, with the view of setting at rest the alleged existence of an inland sea, ¿nd of -*àsce taining thé nature ¿lid capabilities of the country in that direction. The Hon. Captain Sturt presided on the occasion, and the greatest interest was evinced by the parties present in favour of this object. His Excellency, the Governor, kindly advanced £100 on behalf of the Govern ment, and furnished the loan of two horses, to which was added additional subscriptions to the amount of upwards - of £300. This hardly looks like (he spirit and enterprise in the colony being checked. The following is the report of the meeting, as taken from the A meeting was held on this subject, at the sale rooms of Messrs. Bentham ' and Nonmus, Kiny, William-street, on | Monday last, at...

THE PENDING INVESTIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 5 June 1840
THE PENDING INVESTIGATION* A rupture has we understand taken &nbsp; place between two Government officials, &nbsp; which has been the subject of rumour for some days past. We should be scarcely warranted in stating what has come to our knowledge upon this sub- ject ; and the more so, as His Excel- lency intends to grant an opportunity for inquiry. It would be unwise, &nbsp; therefore, either to anticipate or to predict the result. The continued ill- ness of one of the parties affords ground for serious apprehension. &nbsp; - &nbsp; WE omitted on Tuesday to put the Register in mind of a serious omission in his enumeration of the Acts passed by His Excellency. He forgot the Sheriffs Bill — that splendid production! which seems to have been so widely circulated that even the government print has lost sight of it ! &nbsp; &nbsp; - &nbsp; THE WESLEYAN SUNDAY-SCHOOL &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; UNION. — We cal...
HIS EXCELLENCY'S VISIT TO THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 5 June 1840
HIS EXCELLENCY'S VISIT TO THE NEW PORT. &nbsp; &nbsp; ON Wednesday Last, his Excellency &nbsp; the Governor, attended by the Chamber of Commerce, proceeded to the New Port, for the purpose of inspecting the improvements which are taking place &nbsp; &nbsp; in that neighbourhood. On their arr- val, they were saluted with a discharge of cannon. It is, we understand, in contemplation to build a line of sheds nearly opposite the Custom House, along the water's edge. The next arri- val, it is reported, will be discharged &nbsp; there. The works are proceeding rapidly, and his Excellency is said to have expressed great pleasure at their progress. Land for building sites is now letting at £5 per foot, - a most ruinous and unconscionable rate. Up to mid-day yesterday there was no news of any arrivals. &nbsp;
