THE "VILLE DE BORDEAUX." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 May 1841

THE "VILLE DE BORDEAUX." We are informed that the legal arguments in this case are to be proceeded with on Monday. In our next, therefore, we shall probably be enabled to announce to the wondering colonists what the grounds for seizing the French vessel, and stopping a profitable export trade, really are! In the meantime, we publish a letter which has been addressed to us by Captain Biron :— TO TUt EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. Fordham'a Hvtd. MagM, 1841.

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records."-SHAKESPERE. APANISH CHARACTER.- With all its good points however, the Spanish character is unfavorable to the formation ol a powerful or independent nation, governed constitutionally no Spaniard knows nor can imagine what independence is, as we un. derstand it; they can n?ne of them move without a natron; they cannot form to themselves an idea of honor not conferred by kings; and in the south of Spain particularly, their vanity is ao inordinate that they will give up a project andreate the examination of a question, if it in any way tends by its adoption «r discnaaien to cast • shade npen their fkvorite whins and swtiona.

BANKRUPTCY OF LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 5 June 1841

BANKRUPTCY OF LAUNCESTON. A foolish paragraph has been inserted in the Southern Australian, in which an event of no less importance than the Bankruptcy of Launceston is gravely announced. This is so much like following tho wake of some dis reputable prints in (he other colonies when speaking of South Australia, that we cannot allow it to pass without reprobation. It is the more inexcusable, too, when it is considered that the fact ought to be known to our con temporary, that there was just as much reason to allege (hat London was in a state of bank ruptcy because Hammersley's bank had smash ed, as there was to assert, because the pressure of the times had been felt, and some indivi duals had failed in Business, that Launceston was bankrupt. We have been saved further comment, by the receipt of the following letter from a respected merchant of that place, at present on a visit here:— TO THE COirOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER.

The South Australian Rergister. ADELAIDE : SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1841. PUBLIC EXPENDITURE. We publish the reply of Governor Grey to the Memorial of the parties interested in the Mount Barker line of road, and we request public attention to it, less because it holds out a reasonable hope of this important link in the chain of overland communication being com pleted, than an explicit avowal of the position his Excellency holds with reference lo the public expenditure of the colony. On the last point, indeed, Governor Grey's authority seems distinctly enough defined. Until the cast- of South Australia has been considered by the English Parliament, his Excellency's dependence fur the support of his Government roust rest upon the local revenues of the province. Save for purposes of decided emergency—eases where, without Hifficient means, the lives or properties of her Majesty's subjects, or the public peace might be endan gered—Governor Grey will not seek pecuniary aid from home.

THE "VILLE DE BORDEAUX." TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. Turf hotel, June 3, 1841. J. BROWN, Carpenter on the Ville de Bordeaux. GENTLEMAN—I was carpenter of the ship Ville de Bordeaux, having been appointed in that ca- pacity by the owner of the ship, M. Joubert, at Sydney, in August last, and signed articles as such. I suppose that some circumstances within my knowledge may be acceptable to the public, and shew how little faith ought to be placed upon the evidence of that part of the crew on which Mr Torrens has principally rested his case. Their characters are well known to me, and I do   say that the evidence given by them is false, and that I believe they were influenced by a promise of some future benefit. This they have unhesi- tatingly stated themselves, both to myself and others. They have sworn that a French flag was hoisted when they met a French ship, and an English flag when they met an English ship. This, I further declare, against their a...
