NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE OF THE MURRAY. This long-disputed problem has at length, we think, been solved in the affirmative. The subjoined official report of Mr Pullen, Marine Surveyor, to the Government, sets the question of its practicability, in mo- derate weather at least, altogether at rest. It would be difficult to over-rate the co- lonial importance of a direct sea com- munication with the extensive and fertile tracts watered by Lakes Alexandrina and Albert, and the Murray for about two hundred miles of its course. The final establishment of the fact, indeed, will at once direct the attention of the colonists to these splendid districts, and render hundreds of thousands of acres of rich agricultural land, which at one time were considered almost shut out from commu- nication with the capital, of almost as easy access to market as the located dis- tricts beyond the Barossa and Mount Lofty ranges. The thanks of the public are due to Mr Pullen for the able manner in which he has accomp...

THE LEAD MINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

THE LEAD MINE. WE have much pleasure in announcing that the result of the experiments made to ascertain the quantities of lead and silver contained in the ore lately discovered is the mountains has been most favorable. A meeting of the provisional committee was held on Tuesday last, at the Auction Company's Rooms, at which the following Report of the Committee of Assay was read:—     To the Provisional Committee of the South   Australian Mining Association. Your sub-committee, appointed this day week   to superintend the assay of the ores from the     Wheal Gawler Mine, beg to report that they, in     company of several other gentlemen, visited the mine next morning, and brought away specimens           That they saw detached from the rock. These       they gave for the purpose ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

To the Committee of the South Australian Mining Association. GENTLEMEN—We have the honor to submit to you the report of our examination of the lead EDWARD DAVY. JAMES WESTON. Adelaide, April 6, 1841. and silver ore which has been placed in our hands for analysis, on the correctness of which, as a minimum, we have every reason to believe you may rely. The ore is galena, and consists essentially of a combination of lead with sulphur, containing variable proportions of other substances. Every specimen which we have had an opportunity of satisfactorily examining, contains more or less silver. From the external aspect of the ore, it may safely be computed that it actually contains up- wards of 75 per cent. of lead. The analysis of several specimens furnished to us by the depu- tation of your committee, has yielded an average of silver in the ratio of 12.526 ounces troy to the ton of ore—one specimen giving about 15¾ ounces, and another about 9 1/3 ounces. We have not yet had an opportuni...

THE ADDRESS AND "JEREMIAH TWIGGE." TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

THE "ADDRESS AND "JEREMIAH TWIGGE." TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. GENTLEMEN—The letter of a person signing himself Jeremiah Twigge," which appeared in the Adelaide Chronicle of Wednesday last, somewhat surprised me. If Jeremiah sees no farther into his own affairs then he does into the subscriptions appended to the notorious " address," the sooner he entrusts the entire direction of the former to his "good woman" the better. Jerry, forsooth, publishes fifty names or so which have not been appended to the address; and, having scrawled through his "last shee of paper," omits "fifty more"— fancying that he has edited a tolerably complete list, omitting the country districts. Now, Jerry should have obtained an additional ream or two of paper, and then, with a little indus-   try, he might have completed a catalogue of the non-subscribers. Probably such was not his intention. He appears to have contented himself with the selection of names of indivi- duals...

TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Thursday, April 8th, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Thursday, April 8th, 1841. Present—The Mayor; Aldermen Smillie, Davis, and Stevenson; Councilors Blyth, Brown, Hailes, Watson, Neale, Andrews, Wilton, and Lambert. The minutes of last meeting having been read and confirmed. The Town Clerk read the minutes of the Market Committee regarding the letter from Capt. Sturt, and the memorial from the stock- holders, which bad been referred to them last week. They had had a meeting with Mr Mann, the Corporation's Counsel and a case was submitted to him with a request for his opinion on it. Mr Mann's opinion was produced and read by the Mayor. The queries asked by the committee were, whether the corporation had the power to create a market; and if so; whether they could pass the bye laws they wished for protecting it. Mr Mann gave it as his opinion that the Corporation had not the power to create a market—that power resting with the Crown. The Major said, the views taken of the matter by Mr Mann were very contracted,...

LATEST NEWS FROM EUROPE. THE QUEEN AND THE YOUNG PRINCESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

LATEST NEWS FROM EUROPE. THE QUEEN AND THE YOUNG PRINCESS. Buckingham Palace 21st November 1840. This afternoon, at ten minutes before two, the Queen was happily delivered of a Princess. His Royal Highness Prince Albert, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent, several Lords of her Majesty's Most Honorable Privy Council, and the Ladies of her Majesty's Bedchamber being present. "This great and important news was immedi-   ately made known to the town by the firing of the Tower guns; and the Privy Council being assembled as soon as possible thereupon, at the Council Chamber, Whitehall, it was ordered   that a form of thanksgiving for the Queen's safe delivery of a Princess be prepared by his Grace the Archibishop of Canterbury, to be used in all churches and chapels throughout England and Wales, and the Town of Berwick upon Tweed, on Sunday the 29th of November, or the Sunday after the respective ministers shall receive the same." The following "Court Circula...

FRANCE. (From the same.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

FRANCE. (From the same.) The struggle between Ministers and the Oppo- sition, in the French Chamber of Deputies, termi- nated on Saturday; when the address which Ministers supported was carried by a majority of 247 to 161. This result shows that the opposition     in the Chamber depended more upon noise than     numbers for producing a sensation; and at the   same time it deprives the speeches of much of their interest.   The Commerce mentions, that it was reported in Paris that Prince Louis Bounparte would be set at liberty on the occasion of the arrival of the remains of Napoleon in France. "We cannot but applaud that resolution," says the Commerce.   "It would be too painful to think that the nephew       of the Emperor, and one of his companions in exile, should remain captive when such great homages are about being paid to his memory." General Montho...

THE WAR IN SYRIA. (From the same.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

THE WAR IN SYRIA. (From the same.) The Eastern question, it seems, is now settled. On the 21st of November, Commodore Napier arrived off the port of Alexandrina, and sent in Captain Maunsell with a flag of truce, to re-open negotiations. Captain Maunsell's entry into the Palace was curious: he pulled into the harbour without molestation, and landed on the Pasha's Palace-stairs; where meeting nobody to question or impede him, he walked right on till he found himself in the antechamber, among the interpre- ters. Here, declaring himself the bearer of an   amicable communication from Commodore Napier on state affairs, he was at once inhered into the presence of the Paha; who recollected him as the commander of the Alfred, to whom he had presented a valuable sword eight years ago. The Pasha was very courteous; and Captain Maun- sell was immediately placed in communication with Boghos Bay. The letter from Commodore Napier, of which Captain Maunsell was the bearer, represented...

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM INDIA. The late arrivals from India put us in possession of the most important move-   ment, perhaps, which has taken place in India, during the present century, and which will in all human probability add to our immunise Eastern Empire one of its most valuable possessions. The fol- lowing statement will put our readers in possession of the facts : — Shere Singh, the new Sovereign of the Punjab, has very unexpectedly declared himself immediately against " Shah Sujnh," and entered into an alliance with the disaffected Jisah chiefs, with whom his whole force took the field against the British. The excellent intelligence possessed by the Governor General placed the whole of the arrangements in his hands before their development, and the largest British force ever assembled in India was collected in the northern provinces, the object of which was all but known to take possession (as a component part of the British territory) of the Punjab; making the lin...

NEWS FROM CHINA (From the Sydney Gazette, March 6.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

NEWS FROM CHINA (From the Sydney Gazette, March 6.) We have received files of the Pinang Gazette to the 2nd of January inclusive, and of the Canton Register to the 16th of December, 1840; the information they give relative to Chinese affairs is vague, uncertain, and inconclusive. The most important piece of news is the resignation, from a bad state of health, of Admiral Elliott, as commander of the squadron in the Chinese seas. Sir John Gordon Bremer, who was so long amongst us, we are happy to per- ceive, has been appointed to the chief command. It appears that, notwith standing the irresistible force the English possessed, they have frittered away their time without rendering one exploit that will add to their laurels, or conduce to place our relations with China on that firm basis that we looked for from the ample, effectual, and expensive armament that was put in motion to effect that highly important object. It is but too apparent that gross misconduct lies some- where. Without...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (Extracts from papers to the 23rd March) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (Extracts from papers to the 23rd March ) The Colonial Secretary, Captain Montague arrived in Hobart Town on the 19th March, and recommenced his official duties—Captain Forster, who acted in his stead, being reinstated in the office of Chief Police Magistrate. ROAD ACT MEETING.—The spark is elicited—   it can never be extinguished! The people have   been driven to learn their power—it can never be abstracted from them. It was a much less be- ginning than this, although with exactly the same object, the introduction of the abhorrent EXCISE system, which lost to Britain what the great Lord Chatham so correctly designated the brightest jewel of the Crown. The system of   personal vilification has tended only to reconcile existing differences—to cement all in one general alliance. Esto perpetua ! The public meeting to introduce a land and house tax in its most offensive form—by EXCISE—went off, as we fervently trust all such atte...

SYDNEY. (Extract from papers to the 19th March) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

SYDNEY. (Extract from papers to the 19th March) About one o'clock this morning, the bakehouse attached to Messrs Hughes and Hosking's premises, in Sussex-street, caught fire from the flues of the ovens. It was at first imagined that the fire could be got wider, but a large volume of flame ascending from the roof soon shewed that the southern portion of the building was downed to destruction ; and the wind being pretty fresh from the south-east at the time, the flames soon com- municated to the northern portion of it, and in a very short time from the fire being first discovered     the whole premises were a mass of flame. The stores were two parallel buildings running from Sussex-street to the water. In front of the southern wing, and facing Sussex-street, were three good dwelling-houses, and a building which had recently been converted into a temporary Episcopal Cbapel for the parish of St Andrew's. In front of the northern wing was the Albion Hotel, to wh...

SUPREME COURT, SYDNEY—CIVIL SIDE March 6, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

SUPREME COURT, SYDNEY—CIVIL SIDE March 6, 1841. FOREIGN ATTACHMENTS.— Gordon v. Boucher. This was a foreign attachment in which Mr Foster moved, that the damages be increased which were laid in the summons at £2000, but which had been inserted in the declaration at £1100—leave to amend given. Mr a'Becket made a similar application in the next case, which was also granted. Mr Foster then opened the case. He said it was an action under the Foreign At- tachment Act against the defendant, as the agent of a company carrying on business under the name of the British and Australasian Bank, for the recovery of a bill of exchange, originally drawn for £1000 which, with principal, interest, and re- exchange at £25 per cent., now amounts to £1266 1s 9d, and called the plaintiff, who proved that he bought the bill of the defendant as the agent of the said company. Mr Windeyer objec- ted that under the new act at the present stage of the case the plaintiff could not be examined, as the old act w...

BRITISH AND AUSTRALASIAN BANK. MANSION-HOUSE, NOV. 7. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

BRITISH AND AUSTRALASIAN BANK. MANSION-HOUSE, NOV. 7. MR ASHURST, the solicitor, waited upon the Lord Mayor, for the purpose of making a re-   presentation of an important nature, with re-   ference to the concern called the British and Australasian Bank, No. 55, Moorgate-street, and requested that his lordship would send a messenger to the manager of that bank, to say that that gentleman's attendance upon the oc-   casion was necessary. Mr Frederick Boucher, the manager of the British and Australasian Bank, accompanied   by Mr Thomas, of the house of Kersey, Hughes, and Thomas, of Bucklersbury, soli-   citor to the establishment, appeared in the justice-room very soon after the message was delivered, and the Lord Mayor called upon Mr Ashurst to proceed with his statement. Mr Ashurst said that he was requested by Messrs Bass, of Burton-upon-Trent, who were   very extensive brewers and exporters to India an...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. [?] fond records."— SHAK[?]PERE.

The lady was of respectable connexions und the farmer, though excellent at a soug or anecdote, was un equal to the task of writing a proper declaration of hi« passion. In this extremity he called in the assistance ol the poet. Uurns furnisbed him with two drafts of b love-letter, and the drafts are certainly curiosities in their way. We believe the farmer was successful in his suit. Miss G. listened to the passion so iirdcntly proclaimed by proxy, und lived to be the happy wile of the far mer. The originals of these curious letters are in the possession of a very eiiccct&...
