The South Australian Register. ADELADE: SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1841. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.-THE VOLUNTARY PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1841. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.—THE VOLUN- TARY PRINCIPLE. AMONG the many charateristics which have distinguished the colonization of South Aus-   tralia, there are none more peculiar or more prominent than the absence of a dominant religious sect, or of a church which claims for itself the name and attributes of the "Es- tablished." The appointment of Colonial Chaplains of the Churches of England and Scotland, originally authorised by the South Australian Act, was intended merely to guard, in the infancy of the Colony, against religious [?], and by no means implied the re-   cognition of these particular churches. The religious advancement, indeed, of the various   denominations of Christians has been altogether voluntary—in none more marked than among   the members of the Church of England, where our worthy and esteemed friend the Colonial Chaplain has long ago merged into the...

AN OVERLAND PARTY ATTACKED BY THE NATIVES OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

AN OVERLAND PARTY ATTACKED BY THE NATIVES OF THE MURRAY. On Wednesday evening, information was re- ceived in town that an overland party, con- ducting a flock of sheep under charge of Mr H. Inman and Mr Field, had been attacked by the natives near the Elbow of the Murray, and that one or more persons were severely   wounded, and the sheep dispersed. The rumour very soon spread over the town, and the further it travelled the more alarming   it became — (for the common principle that the correctness of a report diminishes in a ratio corresponding to the distance is fre- quently illustrated in Adelaide) — so much so, that in a few hours after the news reached town, we were told, as a fact, that the whole of the party had been murdered except Mr Field, who alone had escaped to bring the news. We soon ascertained, however, that the affair, though certainly bad enough, was not quite so serious. The facts, so far as can at present be ascer- tained, are as follows : — Mr Inman ...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRIALIAN REGISTER. North Adelaide, April 22, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRIALIAN REGISTER. North Adelaide, April 22, 1841. GENTLEMEN—I gather from a somewhat muddled paragraph in last Tuesday's Southern Australian that one of their correspondents has complained of the want of a light at the south- west corner of the footpath leading to the town bridge. Now, as it is quite impossible from the statement as there made that the authorities can     understand what they are wished to do, and     having myself experienced great inconvenience from the want of a beacon of some sort or the     other to mark out the exact position of the path- way to the bridge, I venture, through your po- pular journal, to solicit the attention of the Sur- veyor to the desirableness of placing a light at the spot referred to. As "we" attend service on the Sabbath day,     and cannot afford to spoil our best "bib and   tucker" by wallo...

SOUTH AUSTRIALIAN WHEAT. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRIALIAN REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WHEAT. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRIALIAN REGISTER. GENTLEMEN—We beg to land to you for the inspection of any gentlemen lately arrived in the colony, with an idea that the soil of South Australia is incapable of producing good wheat, a sample of a crop grown by Mr Pierce, of Tusmore,   near Adelaide, on land of only average quality, and of which this grain is the first produce. Those who may not get a sight of it may judge of its character by the price at which the bulk has been sold—namely, 16s. to £1 1s per bushel; and     yesterday we readily sold a quantity of it at 25s.   per bushel. Surely every person must admit that if land, ploughed up and sown for the first time since the         creation, with the extra disadvantage of numerous large trees still standing upon it, will produce 55   bushels per acre of such wheat as the above, the coloni...

TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Thursday, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

TOWN COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Thursday, April 22. Present —The Major; Aldermen Stevenson, Davis, Mid [?] Lambert, Wilson Hopes, Frew, Sanders, and Andrews. The minutes of last meeting having been read and approved of, Alderman Stevenson rose, and said he wished, before the routine of business commenced, to make a statement regarding a very erroneous im- pression which had gone abroad in reference to the state of the streets. An idea that the Council   is to blame for not repairing the streets seemed to be very prevalent in some quarters. There was nothing whatever to give rise to so gross a mis-statement. The Coucnil had done all they could to get the streets put into a proper state of repair—they had called a public meeting on the subject, which very few persons took the trouble to attend; and they even offered, if the inhabi-   tants of Hindley and Rundle streets would sub- scribe a reasonable sum, to take into consideration the propriety of taxing to a certa...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. On Thursday last, week Mrs Garratt, wife of Mr S.B. Garratt, who left the colony some time ago in the Royal Admiral, and her two brothers Edwin and Fredrick Oliver, were brought up before his Worship the Resident Magistrate, on     an information charging them with conspiracy with intent to defraud, laid by Mr Saul Samuels, as agent to Messrs A. & S. Lyons, of Sydney, creditors of Messrs Garratt & Fisher.   Mr Samuels, who came down from Sydney in the John Pirie, with a power of attorney from the Messrs Lyons, was first examined. He stated that Garratt & Fisher had had large consignments of goods sent down from Messrs Lyons, from Sydney, of which no account had ever been given, and that after Mr Garratt had left the colony, he had found Mrs Garratt had been disposing of some of these goods at prices far below the mar- ket value. Messrs Lyons had made consignments to Garratt & Fisher as...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The date of the intelligence from South Aus- tralia is July 18th. It seems that Governor Gawler's exertions for the "prosperity" of South Australia were then beginning to produce some of their natural fruits. A scarcity of money ws felt in Adelaide. If an individual settler, in place of bestirring himself to raise produce for food and trade, remaining content for a time with but moderate comforts in the way of lodging and do- mestic conveniences, were to expend almost all   his cash, and stretch his credit besides, in order   to build unto himself a mansion and offices, with all possible appliances known to the fasitidious citizen of the imperieal metropolis, and a suite of   menials and office-clerks—if a private colonist   were thus to proportion his outlay according to the "prosperity" which he looked for in future years, and which by strict frugality and discretion he might attain—dealing in luxury instead of t...

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY—No. 12. ENTOMOLOGY, No. XI—DIPTERA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE COLONY—No. 12. ENTOMOLOGY, No. XI—DIPTERA. NATURAE AMATOR. April 19th, 1841. This order, presenting such a vast variety of genera, which have from time to time been added on account the great variety of forms which the different families contain, is of less extent with us than perhaps any other—our known species being at present extremely limited. In England these insects form a very     numerous class, preying on or infesting almost every substance animate and inanimate. Of these, and the last-described order, Neuroptera, about the same number of species are known— though the former are slowly increasing in this respect. In two or three particular species,   they swarm in such abundance nearly all the year round, that they can only be equalled by the Formicidae tribes—hardly a single spot of ground, except when free from trees, being unoccupied by the multitudes of neuters or working classes of the latter. These and ...

HINTS TO HORSE BUYERS. (From Acherman's Sporting Review.) The buyer has need of a hundred eyes, but the seller of only one. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

HINTS TO HORSE BUYERS. (From Ackerman's Sporting Review.) The buyer has need of a hundred eyes, but the seller of only one. Never buy a horse that hits his legs, or, to speak plainly, [?] or brushes. Never buy one with a long, weak deer neck. Always suspect vice, when you see the white of the eye, or observe the animal look back at you when mounted. Be careful that the fore-feet are of the same   size; avoid flat feet and consequenct low heels.     If you wish to be firmly carried, choose a well- formed head, big nostril, short enck, deep in the   ribs, short in the cannon or below the knee, big   well-formed [?] (always rejecting upright   ones,) width of loin, big thighs, and well-formed hocks. As to go fast, you must have length, choose a         lone waist rather than high limbs; Eclipse's form     before Childer's. &...

THE MILMENRURA MURDERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 April 1841

THE MILMENRURA MURDERS. We scarcely expected that Colonel Gawler would have had an opportunity of carrying to England with him so fearful a commentary on the Milmenrura murders, as we have this day to present to the public. The interesting letter of Dr Penny to Colonel Gawler's Private Secretary, furnishes those facts which place the proceedings of Major O'Halloran, the Police   Commissioner, in their true light; and leaves the shooting of the native, their mock trial, their execution, the burning of their huts, altogether without a shadow of justification. We do not now speak of Major O'Halloran, only commissioned by Colonel Gawlor to hang three natives out of the tribe for the murder of the passengers by the Maria, having exe-   cuted one native for the alleged murder of a sailor named Roach, two years before ; nor do we even, at present, desire to advert to the atrocious outrage upon all just, humane, or con- stitutional obligations which the whole of th...

THE SOUTH AUSTRIALIAN REGISTER. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1841. THE FINANCIAL CRISIS. On Sunday last the Siam arrived from London with the official prohibition against Colonel Gawler drawing more billls on the Coloni- zation Commissioners, and bringing back, at the same time, several of his Excellency's drafts protested for non-payment. On Monday Colonel Gawler published what he terms a financial minute, conveying to the public the pleasing intelligence that his ex- penditure for the year 1840 amounted to the sum of £174,092 16s 2½d, exceeding the colonial revenue by a trifle of one hundred and forty-four thousamd pounds! His Excellency   has had some reason to be shy of his year's accounts. At present he has only condescended to give them by the lump; and a very respect- able figure, we must say, both he and they cut. But he must not maintain a " dignified silence " with respect to the items. After a twelve- month's patience, the colonists have some right to be made a...
