SYDNEY. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL & REPORTERS [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

. SYDNEY. LEGISLATIVE COUNvCILjfc REPORTERS In South Australia, the position of . thc press with respect lp the Legislative Council, precludes the possibility of , any thing like the following occuning^ M nether it is desirable that this state, , of things.should continue, or not, wei believe, there is a diversity of opinion,; - a great majority, however, leaning] to the side of throwing open the pro ceedings of Council. As far a« the Sydney reporters and: Mr. Macarthur are concerned, we think, to use a homely phrase, that the; latter gentleman ".has tome off second best." In fact, we .seld^oru ,knewta case^ which Jias .issued otherwise. Some) years ago, we remember, that Daniel:! O'Connell made a similar attack upon the reporters of the Lonrjop morning papers, and proposed their exclusion from the Gallery of the House. The fact was, that by some accident pr other,-whether in the heat of debate -in the hurry of reporting-or in the neglect of composing-it was never dis tinctly proved...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

VARIETIES. WOMAN'S WEAKNESS.-Our old nurse used to tell us a wondrous story about a large clock and the terrible Freemasons and Queen Elizabeth. Ft ran thus-that tbe virgin Queen resolved to dis cover the grand secret, and for that purpose secreted herself io the case of an old-fashioned clock, which stood in tbe room in whic.h the lodge met. She was discovered by some means, and at once compelled to take the oath of secrecy, under pain of instant death. Now it seems that there are women in Sydney who are equally anxious to find out this secret, for .a night or two since, we were informed, that at a meeting of a lodge in Sydney, a somewhat similar occurrence took place. The lodge met at a public house, and the Free masons generally have something for the good of the house, as well as to comfort the inward saan. This something was usually carried upstairs to the door of the room, and banded inside by a woman, bot she wa sallowed to see nothing. On the evening in question, however, sh...

The Southenrn Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, AUGUST 7, 1840. SOUTH AUSTRALIA.—SPIRIT OF THE COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

Qfyt Soutirent m&traimu ADELAIDE: FFIDAY, ACCOST 7, 1840. SOUTH AUSTRALIA.-SPIRIT OF THE COLONIAL PRESS. WHEN we «first received iuteliîgence/rjf the ehange in the Board of Coinrnis sioners for South Australia, and of the appointment of another and a distinct Board for the remainder of the British Colonies, we stated, as one of the strongest recommendations of this chang«, that it would teDd to lessen the spirit of rivalry with which, un happily, this colony had been too long assailed. In the opinion we then ex pressed, we are strongly confirmed by the papers from the neighbouring colo . nies which have just come to hand. We can make but few extracts ; but, brief as they are, our readers will see in them growing indications of a kind lier spirit. The first is from the Port Phillip Gazette, of June the 17th, and is ex tracted from an article upon the subject of the Port Phillip Land Revenues, in which the writer says .* " Since the appointment of Colonel Torrens to the Board ...

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL. OUR contemporary, the Chronicle, has, we perceive, published the aboye Bill, in its present amended form. As far as our readers are at present concerned, however, we shall merely point out the blanks filled up, and the amenda ments made, since its former publica tion in our columns. On its passing into a law, we shall probably give it at full length. The following is a brief but simple abstract of its numerous provisions as they now stand. The Corporation to consist of ONE Mayor, THREE Alder men, FIFTEEN Common Councilmen, and all others citizens enrolled accord ing to the provisions of this Act. The control of the Corporation to extend to the inner limits of the park or public lands, as laid down by Colonel Light ; but, reserving the rights of her Majesty and of the Governor and Council, to comprehend the river Torrens and its tributaries, included within the outer limits of the park or public lands ; it being at the same time lawful for his Excellency a...

SYDNEY MARKETS.—June 22. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

I SYttNEY MARKETS.-June22. We have Taut few remarks to make this week. The news from England are cheering; wool ia. looking np, and oil has advanced considerably. The great cumber of ships which are lair! on,, and which may be looked upon as due io all this, month, will doubtless briag us considérable quant cities of British goods. Wheat must come down, for considerable importations are expected ; and it is general I j understood that the Commissariat Department of Van Diemeo's Land have sent ta. England for two years* supply of flour, beef, and; pork, which must materially affect tbe market. Bacon-getting verysscarce. FLOOR-Considerable quantities of ffaor maybe expected from Valparaiso.

AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. OUR contemporary, ilia Register, com pliments us, in his last, upon our sim plicity, in endeavouring to justify an assertion made by Ca;ituia Sturt, in his late lecture at the Mechanics' In stitute, with reference to the agricul tural capabilities of this province. Now, what we rea.ll attempted was, uot the justification of Captain Sturt's assertion, but an expose of the attempt on th« part .of the Register to mystify the subject, and to hold up the state ment of Captain Sturt to ridicule, by confounding the kwwn with the un known, portions of the province. How far we succeeded in that attempt we are willing to leave to the decision of our readers. The Register is, as usual,-when he lacks argument,-" strongly tempted" to do a something from which he in stinctively shrinks. If he could at alf have shewn-even by a little straining I and perversion of our meauing - a j thing by the way at which he is an ade:»» -that, by any remarks of ours, we...

LAUNCESTON MARKETS.—July 3. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

LAUNCESTON M A RK ETS¿ -/«/v -, 3. Dépendent as is tbe market of ibis town, and .ind> ed of tbe colony, apon that of Sydney, it would be ridiculous on our part to attempt to deceive or to gull the colonists witk.a LiOG BOOK sort of daily remarkable occurrences-changes fluctuations--rises and falls-and Mark Lane kind of proceeding of ear grain market; an . arrival from Sydney not nnfrequently brings information of the state of that market, which operates upon ours, and the arrival of the William bringing information to the 6th instant, has had the effect of lowering the price of-wheat. A few parce1 s of wheat intended for sale have gone off i at a reduced price ; 13s was obtained on Tuesday with difficulty for a sample that f»ur daya previous would have readily fetched 16s, but that is no criterion to judge of the mat bet. The price must come down, but not so rapidly or to an amount some people are pleased to report. We qaote a reduction of 3s in the bushel of wheat, and shall j n...

CLAIMS OF THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 August 1840

CLAIMS OF TUE NATIVES. THE article to which our correspondent refers in the following communication appears in this journal under date or' I June the 9th. At the time of its inser tion, we were so struck with the appa rent want of feeling towards the natives, evinced by the person t<> whom we were indebted for our information, that, under the hope of attracting attention towards it, we gave his ovcn words in inverted commas. Those words were, " The shepherd rose up, thanked God for his deliverance, clapped the gun to his shoulder, and laid the native a lifeless corpse at his feet." Our corres pondent complains that no coroner's inquest was held upon the body. Such I a proceeding has not, we believe, been hitherto usual in this, or any of the neighbouring colonies, but, as the subject is uow fairly mooted, we think ii deserves the serious consideration of hts Excellency, itt whose bauds we for the present leave it.
