IT has fallen to our lot, on more occasions than one, to impress upon his Excellency the importance oí! introducing into the- Council some measure, with a view ta the regulation of Marriages in this Province. An affair ot' sue ii delicacy as this, cannot be too closely gua.ded, and especially in a new and rising Colony. Irregular, if not illegal marriages, are said to be matters of no infrequent occurrence. We have no means of knowing to what extent this is carried, but the bare possibility of such an occurrence, calls for the prompt and decided interference of the Legislative Council. Our attention has been called to this subject, by the following-announcement which appears tn another part of our paper, under the head of'Port Lincoln intelligence.-"Married, at Port Lin coln, by his .Worship, the Resident Magistrate, June 2nd, Mr. I.

ALLEGED MURDER AT KLEMZIG. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 21 July 1840

ALLEGED MURDER AT KLEMZIG. On Friday last, Eleonora Rau was again   brought up at the Resident Magistrates Court, on the charge ot being accessary to the death of her child, found some time since, floating in the River Torrens. As we stated in our last, the Rev. Mr Kaval, the German minister at Klemzig, had an interview with the prisoner, at her own request, on the previous day, in the jail of this town. A letter, addressed to Mr. Stewart, Inspector   of Police, by Mr. Kaval, was handed in to the Bench, but as Mr. Kavel did not appear,     it was not of course received as evidence. We   should be truly sorry on this. or on any other occasion, to prejudice a case by the premature disclosure of facts.; but the interest that has been excited, by this unhappy affair, in the minds of a great portion of our fellow colonists, will, we think, justify us in laying a transcript of this letter before the public The following is a...

HEW BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS. SUPPLY OF FLOUR.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 24 July 1840

VARIETIES. THE GENERAL APPLICATION OF THIS NOT TO BE DISPUTED.-There are no persons engaged in anj species of business, who are s > much imposed upon as the printer. The nature of his occopation is precarious. He has capital and labour scattered over thc «hole counirv, and throughout th* community, in small sum«, which i to the debtor seem trifling, and of no importance, but which, aggregated, would make, not only a hands >me amount, but sufficient to defray the expenses which has been undergone, and return a competent remuneration. It is the extreme difficulty of makin? collections that renders the printer*« life one of toil and anxiety, and plants ninny a thorn in hts path. Men do not seem to think they owe him any obligation for the investment of his capital, the labour of his bead and hands : &.od the risk he runs of never being bai I for their entertainment and instruction What would the world be without a newspaper ?
