PRICE OF MEAT AND BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

PRICE OF MEAT AND BREAD. We are much gratified to observe that the butchers have during the present week, made a very considerable reduction in the price of meat. Beef and mutton which before were selling at one shilling a pound, may now be had at from eightpence halfpenny to tenpance.   While the butchers have thus lowered their prices there is another class who, we trust, will not fail in immediately following their example —we mean the bakers. The enourmous price charged for bread has been for some time severely felt by all classes; and though, taking into consideration the high   price of flour for some time past we said nothing on the subject, yet now, when flour has fallen very considerably, with every pros- pect of a greater reduction daily, we cannot see that the bakers have any pretence whatever for keeping their prices any longer so high as at present. In Launceston, at the date of our   last advices, the four pound loaf was sel- ling...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

NEW ZEALAND. We have been favored with the following notice regarding New Zealand by a gentleman who has just arrived in the Truelove :— Hokianga river lies in latitude 35° 31' S.,. so that the climate is not very dissimilar to that of South Australia; but, from the insu- lar position of New Zealand, rains are more frequent, and the atmosphere is considerably colder there than here. The river is navigable for vessels of 500 tons for about thirty miles in a N. E. direction, receiving in its course numerous tributary rivers and streams, many of them navigable for boats of considerable burthen. These are of incalculable advantage in carrying the timber from the interior of the country to the river. At the entrance of the river there is a bar, upon which the sea break; with great violence during the prevalence of westerly winds; but a pilot, stationed upon   one of the heads, gives notice by signals when the bar may be crossed with safety. The land, both hill and valley, ap...

HINTS TO EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

HINTS TO EMIGRANTS. We have been favoured by the kindness of the Colonial Surgeon with the following hints to emigrants, which Mr Nash has so considerately prepared, and we publish them with the greatest pleasure. They are few that they may be easily remembered, and practical that they may be useful; and we most sincerely hope that their   publicity may be the means, through the blessing of God, of preventing in some measure those sicknesses which were too prevalent and fatal during the last summer:—     1. Avoid exposure to the sun with the head     uncovered, and be careful that your children do not go out of doors without hats or bonnets on. By neglecting this procaution, inflammation of the brain and fever are likely to supervene. 2. Do not drink cold water when you are heated—if you do, an attack of diarrhoea or dysentery may be the consequence. 3. Be careful not to check perspiration sud-   denly, ei...

THE PROPOSED RAILWAY TO PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

THE PROPOSED RAILWAY TO PORT ADELAIDE. No one acquainted with the amount of traffic between the city and its port, or a sufferer from the expense which the present transport of goods inflicts upon him can doubt that a well- made and well-conducted railway will not only amply remunerate the cost of its construction,   but remove to a great extent the burdens and many disadvantages which the separation of the two places has hitherto entailed upon the inhabitants. A steam-tug in the harbour— a   cheap railway to the town — and our ancient objections to the site of Adelaide may   be honestly abandoned. It would have, perhaps, been more imperatively our duty, as journalists, to have kept an eye on the doings of   the Railway Company as detailed in the original prospectus; but the colonial management       being now in the hands principally of those who enjoy the confidence of the public, and &a...

The South Australian Register. ADELAILE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1839. TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1839. TAXATION. An Englishman has been described as a tax-   paying animal; and the Colonists of South Australia are about to bear witness to the cor-   rectness of that definition. So far as we can understand their sentiments as developed in the numerous communications before us, they are unanimous in admitting that it is right to impose taxes sufficient to pay the just and necessary expences of the Government by which their persons and property are protected, but ingenious reasons are at the same time invariably given to show that the particular class or profession to which the writer belongs should be exempted from all such impositions. Under such circumstances, therefore, it is hope- less to expect that the Colonists will ever arrive at unanimity on the expediency of taxes hear- ing upon individual classes, or, seriously to speak, do we think that such taxes are of the   &am...

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. The criminal sittings of the Supreme Court commenced on Monday. The calendar was the [?] which has [?] been brought before any court in the [?], but, as remarked by the Judge in his address to the Grand Jury, it was     gratifying to observe that few of the persons charged with crime had come from England to     the colony, being for the most part persons from     the neighbouring colonies. The greater part of the     cases, however [?] of a trifling nature, the only         cases of a serious character being one of man-   slaughter, a case of [?], and a case or two   of cattle and horse stealing.     William M'Gudie and Thomas Henderson were   charged with stealing two lambs, the property of the Governor, on the 27th October last.

Tuesday, November 5. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

Tuesday, November 5. Christoper Fanning, a bullock-driver, was charged with stealing four tumblers and a wine glass, the property of Mr. George Hepenatal. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. It appeared that the prisoner had taken a load of goods from Port Adelaide to the town, that the tumblers and glass had been taken from a package   on his dray, and that they were afterwards found   in the pockets of the prisoner's jacket.     Mr. Richman, the prisoner's counsel, set up a plea of drunkenness, and produced evidence to   show that the prisoner was in a state of beastly intoxication. The Judge, however, told the jury         that drunkenness was no excuse, for of it were every person intending to commit a crime might         get himself drunk before doing it, and then plead his drunkenness as an excuse.   ...

Wednesday, November 6. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 November 1839

Wednesday, November 6. William smith was placed at the bar, charged with having, on the 2 th August last, stolen from the house of Mr. Giles Abbott, North Adelaide, a tin box containing notes and money to the amount of £54 4s. 6d. The prisoner pleaded guilty. The Advocate-general conducted the case for the Crown—the prisoner was undefended. Giles Abbot, sen., remembers the prisoner coming to his bar on the 20th August last, for a   pint of rum. He also got a glass of beer, and witness went into the cellar to draw it. The   prisoner drank the beer and went away, and witness immediately missed his cash box, which     had been on the counter or on a shelf under the counter, and which contained notes and money to   the amount of from £50 to £60. On missing   the box, witness gave the alarm to his son, who   was in the house. Witness went to the door and saw the prisoner going from the house at a d...

Thursday, November 7. Thomas Wilson and William Silverlock were placed at the bar charged with having taken from the person of Archibald Gall on the night of the 4th inst., while he was passing down Morphett street, a one pound note and eighteen shillings of silver. The prisoners pleaded not guilty. The Advocate-general appeared for the prose- cution—Mr Mann for the prisoners.   Archibald Gall, the person from whom the money was taken, was first examined. He said he was passing down Morphett-street on the evening of Monday last, about nine o'clock, when two men came up to him, one of whom stopped his mouth with his hand, while the other put his arm round him, forced him to the ground, and took the sum alleged from his trousers pocket. Witness cried "Murder!"—when one of the men     struck him, and said he would take his life if he   said a word. They then ran away down Morphett- street, and witness called for the police, who im- me...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE; SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1839. LEGISLATION AND TAXATION. We republish, from the last Gazette, the following observations made by his Excellency the Governor in Council on Tuesday last, to which we entreat the attention of the public as containing matters of the most serious im- port to the future welfare of the colony:—     The Governor said that, in again introducing the bill "for regulating the Licensing of Auction- eers and the Collecting of Duties on Sales by Auction," it was necessary for him to make some observations upon circumstances which gave rise to that bill, and upon others which had occurred since it was first laid before the Council. In No- vember, 1838, soon after his Excellency's first arrival in the colony, a memorial was presented to   him, signed by most of the principal merchants of Adelaide and by two auctioneers, requesting the imposition of a duty upon auctioneers; to this, on the s...
