MURDER OF JOHN GAFTON. — APPREHENSION OF STAGG ON SUSPICION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 28 July 1840
MURDER. OF JOHN G&FTON. - APPREBESSJON OF STAGG ON SUSPICION. About a week arro, information was brought to town to the effect that three or four persons were skulking in the neighbourhood of the Para River under very suspicious circumstan ces. So far as we have been able to gather them, the following are the leading facts of the case. A person, it seems, had applied to a Mrs Robertson, in that neighbourhood, to supply him with some bread, stating, that he and two friends had been lost in the bush, and had not tasted food for three days, Mrs Robertson gave him a loaf, for which he in sisted upon her receiving half a sovereign. The distracted appearance of the man, together with his dress, and the fact of his wishing to force the money upon her for the loaf, at once aroused her suspicions, and led her to conclude that they were persons attempting to elude the vigilance of the police. On communicating her suspicions,a party of mounted police were sent out, under the impression...

USAGES OF CORONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 31 July 1840
OSAGES OF CORONERS. THE office of coroner is one of great antiquity, and the power with which its possessor is invested, is, to a certain extent, unlimited. To the careful and judicious exercise of this power, its popularity, and its usefulness, is mainly to be traced, That the coroner has a right to exclude from his court all persons nn-1 connected with the inquisition before him, is beyond all manner of doubt ; but that the exercise of this right, as a general rule, would either be satisfactory to the public, or useful in its tendency, may fairly be questioned. The usages of such an office, therefore, may be fairly expected to shape themselves according to public opinion ; and such we shall find to have been the ordinary attendants upon the exercise of this office in England. No one doubts the abstract right of the coroner to close his doors against the public, but every one feels that a broad day-light enquiry is far more likely to subserve the ends of public justice. That the co...

STOCK AND GENERAL MARKETS. IT would be an act of injustice to bis Excellency, the Governor, to pass over iu silence any indications of a desire to consult thé opinions of the colonists on malters of public interest. We are led to this remark by reports which have reached us as to the con ference of Hts Excellency with a nu merous body of stockholders and other influe..liai colonists, at his office, on Monday last, upon the subject of the establishment of raatkets. We re gret our unavoidable absence, as we should otherwise have endeavoured to put the pro and con side of the various questions which were agitated on re cord. As it is, we are indebted for our ! report of the proceedings to certaiti parties who were present, and among others to our contemporary the Chro nicle. His Excellency received the gentle men who attended with great cour teousness of manner, and requested their opinion as to the day ou which a Stock Market could be most conve nient^ and advantageously held in Ade l...

&f)e Smttïjen» &u*traltam ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, J TTLY 31, 1840. THE SHIPWRECK.-LATEST NEWS. Tbe following bas just been received from the Colonial Secretary, by the direction of His Excellency the Go vernor, and contains the latest acconnt of the unfortunate occurrence at En counter Bay. The wreck, it appears, is that of a two masted vessel, and the number of persons killed, as far as can j be ascertained at present, is, four men, four women, and three children. Mr. Pullen hoped to reach the wreck on Wednesday night, and has now, there-1 fore, in all probability, ascertained the ! name of the vessel. At present we can form no further conjecture as to what vessel it really is. We must leave the letter therefore to speak for itself. Fur ther intelligence may be expected about Sunday or Monday, which, by the kindness of Bös Excellency, we hope to be enabled to lay before our readers in our next.

AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 31 July 1840
AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (OUR contemporaries the Register and £hroniele-ioT the most part the echo .of each others sentiments -are both struck wjth amazement at Capt. Start's estimate of the productive capabilities of South Australia, but are still as unable to agree with each other as with the honorable gentleman himself. The Chronicle, for instance, errone ously assuming that Capt. Start's esti mate, of 200,000 was a misprint for 2,000,000, threatens us with a series of calculations which are at present under .revision, to prove that the known parts of South Australia are capable of pro ducing grain for six millions of inha bitants. The Register, more cautious and wary in his remarks, rejects in his estimate the distinction between the "known and unknown parts of South Australia, but calculating its area at 200,000,000 of acres, and its corn producing land as equal to five per cent, of the whole, he maintains its ca pabilities for' supplying grain to twenty milli...

LAWS OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 31 July 1840
LAWS OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR. i A BILL upon the above subject, is,| we understand, tu the ha ds of Mr. Smillie, Advocate Generai. In the honorable gentleman's ability for the execution of his task, we have thc fullest confidence ; but as the subject, both at home and in the province, is now one of public interest, a few re marks upon it may not be uirseasoaabie. Under the old bankruptcy laws, the Messrs. Chambers, of London, were made bankrupts-in the year 1321, th¿*ir debts amounting at that time to£26*9,000 and their available assets, after the de claration of bankruptcy, being valued at £320,600,-leaviug a balance in favour of the Messrs. Chambers, after paying 20s to the £l-liable of course to deductions occasioned by legal inter ference-of £51,000. Strange as it may seem, however, from 1821 up to the year 1839-a lapse of eighteen years no dividend had been made, nor a shil 1 ling in the pound paid. A shoal of ' bankruptcy sharks/ as we shoufïl call them in this province, seized ...
