PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

PORT LINCOLN. E.C. HAWSON. By the Abeona we have letters to a recent date from Port Lincoln. The settlement was progressing satifactorily, and every one was delighted with the place and the country around. The Mississippi, a fine French Whaler, had been lying in the harbour for some days, and   had been very successful in fishing. It is re- ported that a large forst of fine timber, within twenty-five miles north-east of the port has   been dicovered. We have the pleasure of     publishing the following outline of a recent trip into the interior made by Mr Hawson, of the Abeona, which gives confirmation to the     reports already received of the capabilities of   the back country. It ought to be remembered that Mr. Eyre's tract from Streaky Bay to   Mount Arden, at the head of Spencer's Gulf,   did not touch within 140 miles of the im-     med...

SPECIAL SURVEY ON THE FINNISS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

SPECIAL SURVEY ON THE FINNISS. Adelaide, Oct. 14, 1839. To His Excellency COLONEL GAWLER, K.H. GEORGE GAWLER. Resident Commissioner. THE following documents have been trans-   mitted to us for publication. The view taken by the Governor on the importance of having a rural population so that agricultural opera- tions may be immediately commenced, is un-   deniably correct; and his Excellency deserves the thanks of the community for the prompt measures he has taken in this instance towards the completion of that view:—   May it please your Excellency— WE the undersigned parties, beg permission     to represent to your Excellency that we are share-       holders in the special survey lately designated as     "Currency CReek," but now known as "the Mouth         of the Finniss," and that some of our number a...

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. WE have at length the pleasure to congratulate the public on the formation of an Institution calculated to promote in an eminent degree the permanent welfare of South Australia. One of the msot numerous and respectable meetings   ever assembled within the colony, took place at the Court-house, on Monday last, when     David Maclaren, Esq., manager of the South Australian Company, was called to the chair,   and the Resolutions which will be found in     our advertising columns, were carried unani-   mously. Owing to an oversight, our reporter did not attend the meeting; we cannot, therefore, do   more than merely state its occurrence, and that,   by all accounts, it was of a character to leave no doubt that its objects had deeply intersted the leading colonists, by whom we are quite sure they will be fully realised. We shall, however, take good ca...

THE MURRAY RIVER NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

THE MURRAY RIVER NATIVES. It is with regret we have learned that the Murray River natives have lately been com-   mitting depredations on the sheep recently brought overland by Mr. Snodgrass, and that several serious collisions have taken place. A large party of mounted police, headed by the Superintendent, Mr Inman, and accompanied by Mr Moorehouse, the Protector, left Ade- laide on Thursday morning for the River, to apprehend the ringleaders. Want of space precludes our publishing, till our next, the     particulars of this affair with which we have been kindly furnished. In the meantime we are glad to be enabled to state that the party in charge of the sheep acted with the greatest   forbearance, and that it was only when the insolence of the blacks endangered the lives of the party that measures of retaliation were   taken and the aggressors dispersed. No lives were lost, though four or five of the natives were wou...

LEGISLATION AND TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

LEGISLATION AND TAXATION. THE announcement in the last Gazette that duties were to be forthwith imposed on goods sold by actions, and a tax levied upon auctioneers, has created an unusual stir amongst the mercantile community. The proposed measure has not been submitted to the public, but the Chamber of Commerce, we hear, has received a copy of the intended bill, and a meeting has been called for the purpose of taking it into consideration. Until we have an opportunity of examining the proposed enact- ments, it is, of course, out of our power to ofer any remarks on the subject; but judging from what we have heard, it is sufficiently evident that no taxing act is likely to be more popular in South Australia than in England. It is so easy to say what shall not be taxed, and so difficult to say what shall; and, we think, as it must he admitted that to a certain extent taxation must he endured, our corres- pondents, while they forcibly enough object to particular burdens, might, in char...

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, yours, &c., A LOOKER-ON. SIR- I understand the auctioneers are pre-   tending to be in a great fright at the proposed auction duty. Now, if, as in England, they were mere auctioneers, I might believe them, but knowing that they are merchants as well, I am sure the scheme has originated with themselves. Auctioneering here is a mere pretence to render publicity to their business. They will sell five shillings' worth by auction to regulate the price, and then one thousand pounds' worth by private sale, and make a profit of the duty—but I hope the thing will never be carried out. In England, with all their watchfulness, not one-hundreth part pays duty,     and all teas, wool, cotton, silks, &c., which in reality are sold at public auction, but bought by agnets called brokers, do not pay any duty.     I hope you will lose no time in exposing this &am...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

NEW ZEALAND. Glasgow Argus. The British Government has at length re-   solved to establish New Zealand into a British Province, as will be seen by the following crier:— "Downing-street, 27th June, 1839, "SIR—I am directed by the Marquis of Nor- manby to acquaint you that the Lords Commis-               sioners of the Treasury have referred in this de-       partment a memorial addressed to their lordship               by the merchants, manufacturers, ship[?]           and other parites in Glasgow, proving that New Zealand may be created into a British Colony;     and i am to request that you will inform the par- ties who signed the memorial that measures are &...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1839. WESLEYAN CENTENARY. Our limited space last week prevented our doing more than briefly noticing this most interesting event. We have now, however, the pleasure of presenting our readers with the                             Rev. Mr. Stow and Mr. McLaren, reported at   as great length as in our power.

PROCENDINGS OF PARLIAMENT. [?] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

PROCEEDINGS OF PARLIAMENT. IMIGRATION. On Tuesday the 24th June, Mr Ward proposed a number of regulations to the following effect:— 1. That Colonization tended to improve the conditions of the working classes of the United Kingdom, in diminishing competition at home and   providing additional markets abroad.     2. That the prosperity of Colonies depended on the mode of disposing of waste lands, and that the       most effectual mode was to sell, at a fixed uniform price, the proceeds to be devoted to provide a free passage for young persons of the laboring classes, in equal peroportions of the two sexes. 3. That a permanent system, based on these principles, should be authorised by the legislature. 4. That such a method of Colonization had al- ready produced the most gratifying results in South Australia. The hon. member then proceeded to describe     the enemy and discontented s...

PORT STOCK CATTLE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 2 November 1839

JOINT STOCK CATTLE COMPANY. We gave a few particulars of this Company a short time ago, promising at a future period to devote a portion of our space to more extended statistical details, with a view to incite others of our fellow colonists to similar enterprise, by   shewing how, under prudent and intelligent man-   agement, the most profitable returns may be     realised by this species of investment; we more-         over advert to this subject for the sake of doing what indeed is nothing more than justice to the   public spirited individuals to whose zeal for the   prosperity of our rapidly rising province we are   indebted for the existence of this flourishing establishment. We happen to know that in the formation of this Company, profit was but a secondary con- sideration, and we sincerely rejoice, therefore, to see, that in addition to...
