The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 5 November 1844
The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1844. With reference to the change in the property of this journal announced in the last number, the proprietor omitted specifically to mention that he had also pur- chased the whole of the extensive printing establish- ment connected with it. In supplying this omission, he begs leave to re- peat that, having for the last twenty months had the uncontrolled editorial management of the paper, he can confidently assure the public that it will still be conducted on the principles which have earned for it a large and increasing share of public support and patronage. In soliciting a continuance of support and pa- tronage from the public, the proprietor begs to state that he shall spare no pains to make it a good newspaper, an accurate impress of the colonial mind, and a consistent advocate of the interests of the colonists. As an encouragement to advertisers, and for the convenience of the public, he intends to establish agencies for th...
THE METALIFFEROUS MINERAL LANTDS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 5 November 1844
THE METALIFFEROUS MINERAL LANDS OF &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THE list in the Land Office of lands containing metaliferous minerals displays the mineral rights &nbsp; of the province in a most striking and interesting manner. It also well displays the activity of &nbsp; Government officers and of our settlers, for, it will be remembered, that at this time last year the Government returns stated under the head of mines—that there were one lead mine and two copper mines in the province, which had been opened but not worked. The subjoined list, in an abbreviated form, which for convenience we have copied from our contemporary the Observer, will show what one short year has produced. Advance, South Australia ! COPPER.

LOCAL NEWS. DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE FROM GAOL. —Early on Saturday morning last an attempt was made by several of the prisoners to escape from the gaol, and had it not been for the vigilance of the guards, and the decided conduct of Mr Ashton, Governor of the Gaol, there is little doubt but the attempt would have been successful, and that seve- ral of the worst of the prisoners, now in durance, would have again been at large. About half-past &nbsp; twelve o'clock on Saturday morning one of the guards, who was stationed in the court of the prison , heard a noise about the roof of the row of buildings which contains the felons' cells. He immediately called Mr Ashton, and informed him that he suspected the prisoners were attempting to &nbsp; escape. Mr Ashton instantly arose, told the man to keep quiet, and to call the head turnkey. Mr Ashton then took his pistols, and sent to the cor- poral of the military guard to get the men under arms and to station them at the e...

WESTERN EXPLORATION. — DEATH OF MR DARKE, LEADER OF THE EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
WESTERN EXPLORATION. - DEATH OF MR DARKE. LEADER OF THE EXPEDITION. IT is to-day our melancholy duty io announce j the murder of Mr Darke, leader of the Western j Exploring Expedition. The murder was com mitted by the natives at a distance of about 160 miles from Port Lincoln, and without the slightest provocation of any kind whatever, j Intelligence of the melancholy event reached I town on Wednesday evening, by tltP cutter j Albatross, from Port Lincoln, hy which Mr! Theakston, Mr Darke's assistant, and the other ' men who were attached to the expedition, have! returned to Adelaide. ! j The particulars of this truly melancholy and [ distressing event will be found in extracts from ¡ the Government Gazette, which we have copied in another column, and in the subjoined letter from Mr J.

CAPT. STURTS EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
I CAPT. STURTS EXPEDITION. j WE beg to direct the special attention of our readers to the longand interesting letter from Capt. Sturt, and relative documents, which we have copied in another column. The first subject of interest is the information that the reported massacre on the Darling turns out to be without foundation, the supposition having arisen from a misapprehension of the native reports. Then we have an account of the finding of a grassy country about thirty miles from the Darling ; of a range of mountains running north-east and south west ; and of a great expanse of water, supposed to be a fresh inland sea. These discoveries are evidently of vast importance, and the public will wait the nest intelligence with no ordinary anxiety. As the guides would proba bly soon insist npon returning home, additional information may be immediately expected. We cannot close our brief notice of this subject without adverting to the astonishing intelligence, tractability, and peaceful con...

ALGIERS. [TIMES, JOLY- ll.] JUNE 30.-Tba official gazette, Moniteur Alge rien, of to-day, inf > rms us " that the news from the west (Oran) continues to ba most favorable, and that since the brilliant affair (le brillant combat) of the 15th inst, no act of hostility has been committed by the Maroquin General com manding the troops of the Emperor near the frontier, who has, indeed, retired with his troops several days' journey beyond Ouchda." The French General, on the other hand, has entered Ouchda without opposition, and the inhabitants, come seven or eight thousand, who fled at firs? at the approach of the French, having demanded permission to return, have obtained it, and are now living under the immediate authority of the French; whether this occupation be provisional, or what, subsequent events will prove. The fae» for the present is, that the Freucb are occu pying the frontier town. This town is situated on the north-east frontier of Morocco, in an oasis of the desert of A ...

TANGIER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
TANGIER THE following extract of a letter, dated Tangier, June 20, shows the state of things there at that time : - "What on earth is to become of Morocco? Now, indeed, their hand is against every man's, and every ram's hand against them. No sooner i had we begun to hope that affairs might be ad justed, between them and their ancient Spanish enemy, than France commences hostilities, and, in the event of a war, the chances ate, that some insult will be offered to the English by the undis criminating Kabyles, which would bring England also down upon them. Sweden and Denmark have refused paying tribute, which the Sultan persists in denian ling, so they are every way he3et. It seems the Moors have always had forebodings of this year. For a long time they have been exhorting each other to beware of 1260, which, according to their reckoning, is the present year. Our little hay is filled , with vessels of war of all nations, the ultimatum not yet having arrived from the Sultan. In case of ...

SWAN RIVER AND MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
PWAÏï RIVER AND MAURITIUS. THE success of the shipment irom Swan Hiver to Mauritius has produced considerable stir in the former cofonv, and m in y persons have been induced to make fu.ther shipments. As the subject is at least equally inteiesting here, we shall make a few add tiona! rema»ks respecting it, for the benefit of the colonist?. The Swan River Gazette very properly says that the delu sive dependence placed upon sales of land to new comers is nearly extinct, and that people now begin io think that, in order to secure pros perity, colonies must produce an income. In this colony, the subject of producios an :nc«»me by exportation has long been one of deep mo ment, and manv experimental shipmen's have been made. The Swan Uiver settlers have doubtless profited by the example and expe rience nf th»» South Australians, and WP are now 'entitled to take advantage of them. If would appear fiom the Perth Gaz,t!e that, at Marni tius, the article '* salted fish, although appearing at ...
