WORK ON SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

WORK ON SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have been much gratified by the perusal of Mr. Stephen's work, first published in London under the title of the " Land of Promise." and since as the History of South Australia It professes to be nothing beyond a compilation from the different writers on the province, and, of course, it ought not to be objected that remarks and observations are freely borrowed, or that the authority is not always quoted, or. when quoted, given correctly; but it has the merti of admirable arrangment and most per- fect impartiality. Mr. Stephens [?] given a   complete view of the colony, and, indeed, it   may, as a whole, be taken as the only complete one yet published. The province is under a further obligation to Mr. Stephen for the exposure of the contra- dictions and mis-statements in Mr. Horton James's "Six Months in South Australia,"   which have been demonstrated in a style the most caustic and conclusive that can be ima- &am...

PRATING A BOUT SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

PRATING A BOUT SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have frequently exhibited for the amuse- ment of our readers, choice samples of the braying which we occasionally hear from Port Phillip on the suhject of South Australia; but we have seldom had a more genuine specimen of unadulterated Donkeyism than the one we subjoin. Really the inhabitants of Melbourne ought to cut off the supplies—the growth of thistles ought to be prohibited within ten miles of that settlement—for surely they can never     unblushingly patronise or encourage the blun- dering absurdities of our long-cared friend of the Port Phillip Gazette. Take a specimen:—   "South Australia must cease to exist unless   the system of concentration be destroyed—and" —Oh, lame and impotent conclusion!—"stock immediately introduced! " Now it is evident that the simple gentlemen knows nothing whatever of the subject on which he prates. He imagines, probably, that concentration, in the South Aust...

ECOUNTER BAY FISHERY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

ECOUNTER BAY FISHERY. THIS establishment, after all, we are glad to hear, is not yet broken up; and although the interruption occasioned by the arrest of Mr. Dutton, the chief Headsman, has been unfor- tunate, we still hope the results of the season will be a satisfactory one. The following letter   to the Southern Australian, confirmatory of the statement in our last, has been published by the proprietors the Fishery :— To the Editor of the Southern Australian. Adelaide, 10th September, 1839.     Sir—We regret that in the last number of your journal you have made certain editorial remarks on an article which had previously appeared in the columns of the Register, on the whale fishery which remarks we consider in many respects in-     correct, and in some, very unjust. As our names were introduced in that article, we think it due to ourselves, that your readers should know, that with these remarks we had no connection; and that in ...

PACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records."—SHAKESPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

PACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records." —SHAKESPEARE. THERE is a species of character which, by the sacrifice of its independence, and impertubability against all offence, glides through the world with the reputation of a good-natured contemptible creature whom nobody thinks it with while to injure, and all affect to pity. Poor So and So is the per appellation of such individuals, who, while   they submit to observations which would rouse into a consuming flame the noble indignation of an independent spirit, generally contrive to make   their compassionate friends pay dearly for the pleasure of their patronage, preying upon their unconscious victims like the midnight vampyre. They are the ready-made proteges of the ostenta- tious, for they are ever sycophantic parasites; and as vanity is the most accessible side of poor human nature, the flatterer is encouraged even by those who secretly despise him. Again, this descreet person is always...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

ENGLAND. The new Post Office arrangements are in full operation, within a circle of 25 miles radius, of which the chief Post Office is the centre. The postage is uniformly one penny. It is said to have increased rather than decreased the revenue.     There are also deliveries three times a day, and all the day coaches out of London, the pro- prietors of which choose to carry mails, receive them. The cost is rather less than one penny per mile, per each mail.—English Paper.     Her Majesty's ship Powerful, Captain Napier, has, it seems, lost several men by desertion, and it is found impracticable to com- plete her crew for active service. This is said to be owing to the adoption of some novel mode of propelling the ship by a machine resembling a tread-mill, which the sailors think degrading, as resembling the labour of convicts, and not that of their native element.   The combined armies of Austria, Prussia, and the Ger...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

CHINA. The Singapore Free Press Extra of the 26th April, contains a detailed account of the out- rageous proceedings of the Celestial Empire towards the British residents at Canton, which must unavoidably lead to decisive and hostile   measures on the part of the British Govern- ment. The immediate cause of the dissention   was the endeavour to suppress the opium trade, which was acted on retrospectively by an Edict published by the Imperial Commission, re- quiring the foreign merchants to deliver up the whole of the opium in their possession within   three days from the publication of the Edict.   The remonstance of the merchants, and the     Report of a Committee of the General Chamber of Commerce, which was specially called to   consider the Edict, was followwed by rigorous measures towards the Hong Merchants who   were threatened by the Imperial Commission, and they deputed ce...

EAST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

EAST INDIES. We are indebtted to Captain W. H. Fox, for Calcutta Papers to the 4th of May and Ma- dras papers to the 14th June, from which we give a few extracts:— MOVEMENTS OF THE ARMY.—Extract of a   late letter from India:—"The large army that   was assembled at Ferozepore, on the Gurrah   river, has been diveded. About 10,000 men,   including cavalry and artillery, have gone to- wards Bhauwalpore and Shikapore, and will eventually proceed to Candahar; and Shah Soojah, the King of Cabal's army of nearly 10,000 men, have preceeded the force; more     than 600 men also have landed at the mouth of the Indus from Bombay, and are now on their route for Shikapore to reinforce the Bengal ar-   my proceeding to that [?]. Altogether a force of 25,000 men will beat Shikapore by the middle of January, ready to proceed by the Bolan Pass through the mountains of Karklee- and Pakkatoo to Luellah and Cand...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We have received papers from the Cape of Good Hope to the 17th of May; the following is an abstract of their contents:- Complaints of Caffer depradations still abounded; but little or nothing appeared to be   doing by the government in the way of ener-     gentic remedied measures. The Governor does       just as he pleases, independent of any restrain- ing power in the Council; and the consequence is, tat a change in the constitution of that body is loudly called for by the colonists. It is said that the Governor consders himself amenable   only to the Secretary of State; and it is addu-   ced in proof of the fact, that public money is   appropriated—and that, too, for years pro-   spectively—and engagements entered into,       which affect the vital intersts of the whole   community,...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

NEW SOUTH WALES. Our intelligence from the sister colony has since our last, reached to the 17th ult., and has brought us the news of a large influx of rice, which is selling, retail, at from 1½d to 1¾d. per lb. A public meeting, very numerously attended,     has been held in the Market Place, for the purpose of adopting measures to receive the poor in these times of awful distress. A large sum was sub- scribed, and several judicious arrangements entered into. Mr. Isaac Simmons sold yesterday 4000 bags of   rice, which brought from 2d to 2?d. per lb; also a quantity of wheat imported by the [?] from     Java, which brought [?] per bushel of 60 lb.,   though [?] weevil eaten; the flour brought     £3 12s per barrel of [?]lb., and some seconds afterwards put up, brought £15 per ton.—Monitor,       Aug 14.

PRICE OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

PRICE OF STOCK. "We find by a paragraph in one of the Sydney journals, that for six pounds per head. If this [?] to South Australia when by proceeding half the         journey and stopping at Port Phillip, they could dispose of their stock at nearly double the price. Beef is now retailed at sixpence and sixpence half- penny per lb.; for not only are the holders indis- posed to sell, but the butchers themselves are enjoying a monopoly which they take good care to turn to the best advantage."   So speaks the veracious editor of the Port Phillip Gazette, in one of his late publica- tions. From the spirit hitherto exhibited by that gentleman towards this colony, we have no doubt but he would use his every endeavour to arrest the overland expeditions in their pro- gress hiterward, by finishing their journey at Port Phillip. It is his interest to do so; for "every new-comer is so much money in the pocket of the newspaper pro...

GROWTH OF WOOL. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

GROWTH OF WOOL. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. I remain yours truly. W. P. DEAR SIR —As the growth of wool must be the principal source of wealth to this our adopted country, I conceive it is the duty of every one to throw in his mite, however small, that may tend to promote that great object. Having had thirty years' experience in the wool trade and something to do with colonial wool in the mother country, I am very desirous that South Australia should not be behind either of the other colonies in the production of that most valuable art etc. I am fully convinced that no place can be better adapted for the growth of wool of the very best quality. The present year's clip will be very miscellaneous; the first question, there- fore, is—how shall we make such as we have turn out to the best account? I would say, by being very particular as to the condition in which we send it home. I speak now more particularly in reference to cleanliness. I have often been grieved to ...

Buoy. "A NIGHT AT SEA." " They that go down to the sea in ships see the aronders of the mighty deep." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

Buoy. "A NIGHT AT SEA." " They that go down to the sea in ships see the wonders of the mighty deep. " THERE are none probably who have been ever on the sea in a long voyage' that have not had in- delibly impressed upon their memories the recol- lection of a calm clear night in the tropics, where the sea and sky blend into one eternal circle, the face of each reflected on the other; the deep purple robe of primeval Night glittering with the sheen of a myriad of stars, steeps as it were the universe in one unbroken hue of solitude and of silence; the only object in the vast concave is the   floating barque that interposes its planks between yourself and eternity, and where the mind of the   proudeest mortal, reflecting in such a scene is crushed into a sense of humiliation and shame before the shadow of infinity. Such was the depression of soul that came over me as, leaning with my folded arms on the gangway rail, I watched the mysterious lights from the dist...

STATE OF THE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 14 September 1839

STATE OF THE CROPS. The abundant rains during the last two months have removed all apprehensions of any failure of the crops. It is impossible, indeed, to con- ceive anything more promising that their general appearance in the neighbourhood of Adelaide; and we could show wheat, barley, oats, and potatoe in a condition which could not be excelled in any part of this world. Let us remind our agricultural readers that the first   three weeks of October is the proper period for maize planting, and that it is the best going, under all circumstances, for the first crop on newly turned up land. EARLY VEGETABLES.—A dish of early po-   tatos, the first we have heard of this season, were dug in Mr. Stevenson's garden, North Adelaide, on Wednesday last. Green Peas have been on sale in our Market during the past week; they are of excellent quality and   the pods are well filled. Those who have been enterprising enough to turn up the soil and plant it, are ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We ought, perhaps, to have published Captain Martin's candid and manly letter; but we trust he will on reflection approve of our withholding it, especially as, under existing circumstances, it would only lead to fresh and profitless irritation. "Who knows?" is amusing; but the moment is gone by. The facts   alluded to by our friend ! is palpable, although we should never complain of the party cribbing from such a source, even without acknowledgement.
