«fije Soutient &tt«traïtatu ADELAIDE : FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1840 MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL. OUR. opinions are entirely unchanged upon the subject of »the Ballot, as ex pressed in our last,' by any remarks thrown out in another quarter as to the Impraetictbility of tts working. When' we suggested the propriety of -the Ballot/ we never supposed, that there were to be some fifteen or twenty persons in the field at once, for all of whom each, candidate was to vote. Such an idea,, if intended to be attributed to >us, is 4oo preposterous te deserve .notice.,; What we -recommended was, instead of the new-fangled system of dividing* the,aggregate constituents into electoral-; «ections or quorums,-a system, which.; however pleasing in theory, we venture to predict, will never be found to work well in practice-that the city should be divided into wards, and that each ward should return the representative of its choice by ballot.

We «have of late applied OB a Thursday at the office of the Gazette for our usual copy, but have been uniformly refused.

HOBART TOWN NEWS. WE have received our Hobart Town papers, as we intimated in our last, up to May the 22nd; but they' contain little news of interest to the general reader. Of what they do contain we give a bVief outline. A meeting of the shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Fire and Marine Tusurance Company had elected Mr. Yeoland to the office of Actuary by a majority of 13 votes, the numbers being for Mr." Yeoland, 78 ; Mr. Davis, 38; and Mr. Macpherson, 30. Upwards of a 1000 shares had been taken in the Auction Company, and, as the company was under the auspi ces of influential persons, it was thought to be a profitable investment of capital. Dr. Bedford, who had so long de voted himself to the Colonial Hospital, had resigned his office under the go vernment; ' "NV reason was assigned for his resignation. The New Norfolk Bridge, of which so much as been said, is now com menced. Sir John Franklin, attended by his lady, his Aide-de-Camp, and Miss Cracroft, performed the ceremony ...

. ' __mmmimmmmmm . j - J r 4STOîÎEYe N EWS, WE have received Sydney papers up to May the 6th, but they contain little news which had not previously reached us through Van Diemen1« Land. The following is an abstract of this news as derived from both the above named sources^: - The districts of Merton and Cas-itus had -been the scenes of the most exten sive and 'enormous atrocities on the part &lt;of the bushrangers. We may in a future number give the particulars of this. The n*a¡ze crops about Maitland were expected to be exceedingly good, but it was not thought that Ute prices would be lower than Ss per bushel. The settlers in that quarter, induced by the. high prices which prevailed, had sold nearly all their wheat. The weather about Argyle had been exceedingly favourable to agricultural operations, gentle and refreshing showers having fallen twice or thiice a week. The prices of horses and sheep remained stationär)', but horned cattle had falleu a little. Flour, in that ne...

ANNIVERSARY OF THE WESLEYAN SUNDAY-SCHOOL UNION. &nbsp; &nbsp; ON Monday evening last, the first anniver- sary of the of the above institution, was held, at the Chapel, Gawler Place. The attend- ance was large and highly respectable. The crowded state of the chapel evinced in &nbsp; a striking manner the deep interest which is felt in the moral and spiritual culture of the rising race. The meeting was opened with singing and prayer, The REV. MR. EGGLESTON then rose and said — that, but for his dislike to apologies, he should have felt himself called upon to apologize for taking his official station among them that evening. The committe had fixed &nbsp; upon one well known to those he addressed — one whose early connection with methodism, and one whose public and avowed attach- ment to its principles — raised him in their affectionate esteem. That gentleman, (Mr. E. Stephens) had been invited to take the chair, but had declined on account of his health...
