BRITISH AND AUSTRALIA STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 June 1840
BRITISH AND AUSTRALIA STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY. WE are glad lo perceive by a recent advertisement in iUeTimes, that the pro ject for carrying out a steam commu nication between Australia and Britain is not yet abandoned. The success which has attended the crossing of toe Atlantic by the British Qoe0»and Great Vt extern, appears to have given a new impetus to this subject; and, and al though the greater portion of the «pe dilative and scientific in Great Britain are at present engaged in endeavour ing to place a line of steamers between Calcutta and England, we have little doubt, but that, in the course of two or three years at farthest, we shall hail the establishment of a similar line between this and the mother Country. The following is the advertisement to which we refer, from which, it will be seen, that Mr. Moulden has been in communication with Her Majesty's Government upon the subject : - " The British and Australian S'ea m Naviga tion Company.-The names of the Directors with...
THE NEW BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 June 1840
THE NEW BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS i IN one of our Sydney contemporaries -the Herald-we observe a disposition to carp at the appointment of the .'Land and Emigration Board for the Colonies, " accompanied by some severe strictures upon the Members of whom t!iat Board is composed. lt i.s true, our contemporary gives the Colonial Secretary credit for the motives by which he was actuated, motives, which, as he espressos it, originated i¡> a desire for "the welfare of the Colonie*," -but he conceives him to be placed so completely within "the jaws of democratic cormorants," -that he could not, if lie would, appoint persons sutable for the discharge of the onerous duties which such an o Iii ce involves. The secret of the maller is this-the same persons, who compose the " Board of Commissioners for South Australia," compose "the Land and Emigration Board for the Colonies,** - and the mere fact of their being thus identified, affords, according to the views of this wiiter, sufficient ground ...
