My Dear O Halloran,-On reaching this, I heard from Serjfant Macfarlane, and Dr. Penny, thal an account had that moment reached them, of a wreck to the eastward, and a number of people having been killed on the other side of the Murray, but that he had no means of sending the intelligence up to town. I instantly offered him one of my horses as far as Willunga, with directions to send another ene on to you, express this night. We proceeded on to Rosetta Fishery, and have had information from Encounser * Bay Boo .which I Jake .down nearly in his. -own words; DEPOSITION OF BOB.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 28 July 1840
VAN DIRMEN'S LAND. j Our papers from Hobart Town and Laun ceston, are up to the 20th of June. The following are such extracts as are likely to be most interesting : THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.-We beard a report this week, that the Council will not meet until August. We have not beard any cause as signed for the delay ; but if its annual sittings be suspended until that time, we apprehend that there will be some change in the official members. Probably this may be anticipated by his Excel lency.-True Colonist, June 5. THE BANKS.-A report having been in ciicuU tion tor some days, that our banks have entered into a combination to curtail their discounts, in order to purge accomoda ion paper, not believing that men of business, possessing such intelligence as our Bank Managers do, would condescend so to act, we have made enquiry, and find that no thing of the kind has taken or is intended to take place ; but, we have learnt, with no small surprise, that discounts have Utely bern considerab...

IF we may at all Midge, from the latest Van Diemen's Li.sd papers, our Fícur market is likely soon to undergo some important change. The expected ar rival at Sydney of 10,000 barrels &lt;f Flour from America, appears to have struck the grain-sharks of Launceston and ETohart Town with perfect con sternation.

COLONIAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 28 July 1840
COLONIAL REFORM. SOME weeks ago, we intimated otu reception &lt;>f the Colonial Magazine, a new monthly periodical, edited by Robert Montgomery -Aiartin, Esq., author of the History of the B:itish Colonies, from which we promised, as opportunity offered, to present ( ur i readers with extracts. Mr. Martin's desire to promote a chance in the ma I nagetnent of our colonial affairs, and the disinterested zea' he has brought j to bear upon this subject, are too well known to nee I comment. So far back I as 1837, the following petition was presented lo the House of Commons, j and was ordered to be printed, and to be taken into consideration on a certain day; but the intelligence of the rebel lion i i Canada at that time arriving:, and the ant tor of the petition being un A ii'tna: to embarrass the government, ödfuribafrattenif»t wu* made tu press it upon the consideration nf parliament, during that session.

WRECK NEAR ENCOUNTER B/iY. MURDER OF FIFTEEN EUROPEANS. REPORTS having reached this town of the Wreck of a vessel about three days journey to the northward of. Encounter Bay, and of the murder of fifteen Europeans by the natives in that district, we have His Excellency's cunr.iiands to publish the whole cor respondence, which will be found in another part of our columns. We have not ourselves one word to add to these melancholy details. A variety of re ports are in circulation as to the name of the vessel, but as yet nothing oj' course can be positively known. From the activity displayed by the govern ment, we si ali, iii all probabilité, be put in possession of further particulars by our next publication. From the fact of several logs .-of cedar having been washed on shore, it is conjectured that the ill-fated vessel is the Christina, from Sydney, which has been some time over-due. This, however, we must warn our readers, is mere con jecture. Since writing the above, we hive receiv...
