SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. In the present depressed state of South Australia. a number of Utopian schemes occupy the public mind, having for their object the acceleration of a re action in the times. Besides a number of proposals to create a fictitious cur rency, there are several ' allotment sys. !ems' and 'community systems' recom mended. The Owenites have even ven. tured to advocate their peculiar views, and with but too much prospect of success. Unhappy South Australia! if any of these schemes be adopted, your misfortunes have only begun. In opening the Adelaide Supreme Court, the Judge remarked that the calendar was heavier than usual, that a large proportion of the prisoners were from the neighbouring colonies, and that there was an unusual number of forgery cases. A misunderstanding has arisen be tween Governor Grey and the Corpora tion of Adelaide respecting the mark t dues, the Governor refusing to give them up unless the Corporation agrees to pay interest on the outlay of the govern...
MUNICIPAL BILL—ATTORNEY GENERAL'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842
MUNICIPAL BILL-ATTORNEY GENERAL'S SPEECH. From the physical' character of the country, it was evident that New Zea land would be colonized at various points, almost all of them, virtually, at a distance from the capital. Under these circumstances, to adapt the language of the preamble of the bill, " the inhabitants themselves are best qualified, as well by their more intimate knowledge of local affairs, as by their direct interest therein, to provide for the wants of their respective settle. ments." But colonized as New Zealand was, and would be, it was quite essen tial, that to each settlement of impor tance, should be given the power of regulating its own local affairs. T he central government would thus he deprived of the power of partiality in its I gislatinon ; it would be relieved from the necessity of much petty legis. lation, while at the same time, the pros perity of the country. at large would be promoted by the honorable rivalry which would spring up amorng the various se...

TRIAL OF THE BUSHRANGERS. SUPREME COURT, MAY 12. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842
TRIAL OF THE BUSHRANGERS. SUPREME COURT, MAY 12. Charles Ellis, Daniel Jepps, and Martin Fogharty, were then placed at the bar. The indictment contained twenty-four counts, varying the offence from "shooting with intent to murder" &nbsp; to "shooting with intent to maim or &nbsp; disable," and treating each of the prisoners as accessories and principals alternately. The Hon. Mr Murray conducted the prisoners' defence gratuitously. The Crown Prosecutor stated the case to the jury, and called the following witnesses. Henry Fowler deposed that he was one of the party who went in pursuit of the bushrangers; on approaching Mr &nbsp; Hunter's station, I saw four men armed, who fired shots at us, we did not return &nbsp; the fire; I received a shot in the face from the window of the hut, in which we afterwards found the prisoners at the bar. I was within a foot of the hut; &nbsp; the shot came from the hut; I saw the flash distinctly. Charles John Sa...

STATE OF TRADE, MANCHESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842
STATE OP TtIADF, MANCHESTER. Although this is a period of the year at which any great degree of activity is hardly to be expected, there have been within these last two or three days, and more, particularly yesterday, acme symptoms of mprovement in our yarn market ; and a trifling advance over the very low' prices paid about ten days ago has been pretty generally obtained uipon numhbers and qualitiesof yarn suit. able to the present demand. Many of the purchasers also have shown a sirong inclination to make contracts for further delivery, which is a favourable symptom as to the condition of the mar ket. In goods, however, there is not much improvement, and the extremely low prices which have ruled for some weeks past remain without change. Still there is a rather better feeliing in the market, and as is indeed usual, the next month or two is confidently looked for. During the two last years, this expectation was deferred by the u?ifavourable position of the Bank of England, and the ...

THE AFRICAN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842
THE AFRICIAN EXPEDITION. From the Shipping Gatette of January 6. We have this morning been favoured witlt the sight of a letter, which given further accouitts of the Niger expedition. Thus, we learn, that " the Albert alone remains in the river; that she has but twelve white men remaining, besides Captain Trotter, Dr. M'William, and three or four other officers." Two of the twelve men spokeni of by the writer were taken ill before his letter was closed, and an early departure from the coast was anxiously looked for. Reduced to this state, no hope can remain with the most sanguine and zealous of those who yet live that any. thing serviceable can be achieved by further perseverance in the ill-projected undertaking; anti we trust that the sufferings and struggles of the men who remain, will not be prolonged by the false trotion that duty requires anything beyond the immediate abandonment of an exploit which the early efforts of the expedition, while the in divtJuals who composed it wer...

THE PRESS IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842
TIlE PRESS IN FRANCE. We have received the Paris papers to Thursday. It was well and generally known in Paris ou that- day that the Court of Peers had condemned M. Du poty, Editor of-the Journal du Peuple, for participation inothe attempt to as sasinate the royal. Princes. This parti cipation consists in his .having:edited a Journal which was subsc'ribed forby the proprietor of the wine shop in Iwhich the conspirators were in the hibit of assembling. Why the builder-of the wine-shop was not included in Dupoty's sentence the Peers only can explain, for he was equally criminal with the able writer now about to be made the rcape-goat of the sins of the Cabinet. -But the French papersare too terrified to do more than allude to this iniquitous proceeding.

TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842
TURKEY. CONSTANTINOPLE, DEc. 7. -The dis astrous occurreices in Syria between the Druses and Maronites have been taken into consideration by the Porte, *ind the ministers have resolved upon adopting every means calculated to put an end to this deplorable state of things. The works at the arsenal continue to be carried on with great activity; several ships are said to be fitting for sea, and are expected to sail shortly under the command of the Capitan t'acha. It is conceived, though not ascertained, that it is destined to put a stop to the hostile demonstrations of Greece. A Constantinople letter in the Malta Times reminds the reader that the new Grand Viz:er was removed last year from his command in Syria by the ex press demand of Great Britain, on ac. count of the cruelties he had committed. It is supposed from this that he is opposed to British interests. The same letter mentions a report of the Circas. sians having defeated the R[ssians in the Caucasus, and huv'ng occasioned the...

THE MUNICIPAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842
THE MUNICIPAL BILLs The Municipal Corporation Bill for Sydney is a most liberal measure, and we hope to see a similar one for Geelong before the close of the session. The following clauses warrant us in our favorable opinion: That the Mayor shall be, ex officio, a Justice of the Peace for the said town. That the Justices of the territory shall cease to have jurisdiction in the town of Sydney; but the Governor may ap point Juttices for the town, as well as for the adjoining country, or for any more extensive jurisdiction. That the rents of all lands and houses, and all market-dues, tolls, &c., vested in the Corporation, and all monies arising to, or levied by them, and all fines and penalties, under the proposed bill, shall bte paid to the Treasurer, and by him carried to an account to be called the Towl Fund ; and such fund shall be applied towards the payment of the said allowances or salaries, and towards defraying such other necessary expenses not other wise provided for,...
