ADELAIDE CORREESPONDENTS OF THE "RECORD." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 May 1841
ADELAIDE CORRESPONDENTS OF THE "RECORD." To PERSONS on the spot nothing is more amusing than the majority of lucubrations with which the columns of the South Aus- tralian Record are stuffed. We observe an occasional plain and sensible account of the &nbsp; &nbsp; colony, but the evident penchant is for in- &nbsp; flated and bombastical accounts, written chiefly by persons altogether incapable of giving a &nbsp; correct or rational idea of the place, or of &nbsp; &nbsp; affording any information upon which intending emigrants could safely rely. A striking illus- &nbsp; tration of our assertion is afforded by the Record of Oct. 3rd, in which is published a letter written by a poor ignorant woman of the &nbsp; &nbsp; name of Hutchinson. The vessel in which this &nbsp; individual emigrated touched at Teneriffe and &nbsp; Rio de Janeiro; and she therefore tells her friends at home that she "visited Sp...
THE LATE NATIVE AFFRAY ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 May 1841
THE LATE NATIVE AFFRAY ON THE MURRAY. We have been obligingly favored by Mr Inman with the following very interesting report of the late affair with the natives on the Murray. The police, under Major O'Halloran have not yet, we believe, returned, so that it is &nbsp; impossible to say if any portion of the fine flock of sheep, about 5000, has been recovered: — &nbsp; To the Editors of the South Australian Register Port Adelaide, April 29, 1841. GENTLEMEN — As various reports with respect to the late collision between the native of the Murray and the overland party conducted by &nbsp; myself and Mr Henry Field have been circulated, I beg, for public information, to give you the &nbsp; &nbsp; following outline of the affair as it took place, which I trust you will allow to appear in the columns of &nbsp; your newspaper:— On the morning of the 16th ultimo, and about forty miles on the other side of Lake Bonney, having encamped on the bank...

STEAM NAVIGATION. On Tuesday last a meeting of the provisional committee appointed on the 20th inst. to report on the particularly and best means of establish- ing a local direction in Adelaide in connexion with the South Australian, Australia Felix, and Van Diemen's Land Steam Navigation Company, was held in the Adelaide Auction Company's Rooms, Kin William-street. Present—James Frew, Esq. Chairman; Messrs &nbsp; E. W. Andrews, John Baker, Charles Beck, John Brown, W. R. Cooke, Capt. Hart, J. Newman, H. W. Phillips, John Snooke, Henry Watson, and W. S.

It was proposed by Mr Newman, and seconded by Mr Watson—That the report of the sub-com- mittee be received, and that the thanks of the present meeting be tendered to them for the care &nbsp; and attention they have displayed in drawing up the report. The following resolution, proposed by Mr Brown and seconded by Mr Newman, was unani- mously agreed to—That the report of the sub- committee as read at this me...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 May 1841
CHINA. THE Frederick [?] arrived from Singapore on Wedensday, having left that port on the 14th of March. She, however, brings no newspapers, and only a few letters, on none of which we have been able to lay our hands. We, consequently, cannot give any news from China, farther than the general reports brought by the same vessel. &nbsp; &nbsp; There had been no arrangement effected be- tween the English and the Chinese; the conse- &nbsp; quence was, that the war was still going on. An arrangement had been all but completed between the two powers, when it was suddenly broken off. The English were to evacutate Chusan, and take possession of another island which was to be given them, and the Chinese were to pay 6,000,000 of dollars to the English. Ere the ar- rangement was completed, however, it turned out that the Chinese intended to give that sum only on condition of the opium trade being put a stop to. The English, of course, could not accept of such terms, so...
FINANCIAL POSITION OF THE COLONY.-PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 May 1841
FINANCIAL POSITION OF THE COLONY.—PUBLIC MEETING. On Tuesday evening the largest meeting we have ever seen assembled in Adelaide was held at the South Australian Company's Rooms, in Rundle-street on the above subject—his Wor- &nbsp; ship the Mayor in the chair. The Chairman, after reading the requisition on which the public meeting had been called, said that he had felt some difficulty as to whether he ought to interfere on this occasion, as he had resolved that, so far as his personal influence went, politics should never be introduced into the Council at which he had the honor to preside. But on a very short consideration he did not hesi- tate in making up his mind that the consequences which this subject involved tendered it incumbent upon him to attend to the wish of the requi- sitionists. He felt the interests of the colony so much at stake that he would have considered it a breach of his duty not to assemble them on this occasion. The question for consideration was not...
PROGRESS AND PRESENT STATE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 May 1841
PROGRESS AND PRESENT STATE OF THE COLONY. On Monday evening, a meeting, which was most numerously find respectably attacked, was held at the Council Chambers, to take into consideration the advantage of obtaining a full and authentic account of the colony, its condition, &s. for the purpose of sending to Englund, to put the public there in possession of a full and faithful account of the real situation and prospects of the colony. His Worship the Mayor having been unani- mously called to the chair— Mr Hagen, in moving the first resolution, re- marked that he had for some time directed his attention to the present position of the colony, and after many discussions with his friend Capt. Hart, he had thought it better, in conjunction with that gentleman, to request the company of his fellow-colonists, and would now briefly throw before them his views. He believed all present were aware that exceedingly conflicting statements had gone home as to the capabilities of the pro- vine...
THE DISCOVERY SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 May 1841
THE DISCOVERY SHIPS. The first season's expedition towards the Ant- arctic Pole has just been completed. The following account of it, which we find in the Hobart Town Courier, just received, will be read with interest:— It is our pleasing task to announce the safe return to our port of H.M. Discovery ships Ere- bus and Terror, Captains Ross and Crozier, after a voyage of six mouth; to the antarctic pole Our readers will be happy to learn that the expedition has been crowned with the most com- plete success, for though they reached not the usact position of the magnetic pole, owing to the &nbsp; &nbsp; immense barriers of ice and ice covered moun- tains that intervened, they were enabled to fix it at about one hundred miles distance from them, as nearly as could be ascertained from the obser- vation of the needle. The Erebus and Terror left Hobart Town on the 12th November, 1840, and arrived at the Auckland Islands on the 20th ; having completed the necessary observat...
