Miscellaneous Shipping. TO MARINERS OF ALL NATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. TO MARINERS OF ALL NATIONS. Port Adelaide, and all the other Harbours of South Australia, are now free Ports, his Excellency the Governor, in Council, on the 3rd. July, 1845,   having passed an Ordinance abolishing all Ton- nage-Dues Pilotage Rates, Harbour Dues, En- trance and Clearance Dues, Wharfage Dues, and even the Government fees payable at the Custom- house. We therefore take this, the earliest opportunity of informing Captains, managing owners, and all   other persons interested in mercantile, whaling, or other shipping, that vessels navigating these ¡ seas, may now freely come into our waters for re- freshment, refit, traffic, or freights, and depart thence, without incurring one farthing of expense in the shape of fiscal or official exactions.   In addition to the certainty of always finding abundantly furnished and cheap markets, water and fuel are also plentiful and cheap ; and pilots will be in attendance, ...

SYDNEY MARKETS, FRIDAY, JULY 4TH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

SYDNEY MARKETS, FRIDAY, JULY 4TH. Wheat.—A good deal has been received at the mills during the week, and we have heard of drays being on the road laden with wheat from Bathurst and Goulburn. The highest price is 5s. 3d., but generally not more than 5s. Flour.—The usual quantity moves off from the mills weekly. The millers are firm at £13 per ton for fine, without any inclination to direct sales. Bread.—The two-pounds loaf of good quality is 3¼d., but there is much of an inferior description, at 3d. Bran.—In demand at 1s. per bushel. Fifty-one loads of wheat have paid dues at the Campbell-street market since last report, the prices given there ranged from 4s. 10d. to 5s. 2d. per bushel ; the average price if the whole was 5s. per bushel ; a small sample of light wheat has been sold at one of the wharfs, at 1s. 8d. per bushel. Maize.—In the early part of the week the wholesale price of maize was fron 2s. to 2s. 3d. per bushel ; on Wednesday about 20 bushels were sold in one lot at 2s....

THE TURNPIKE, OR ROAD ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

THE TURNPIKE, OR ROAD ACT. WE intended to have given in this number a summary of the clauses of this Act, but   must reserve it till our next. Its main features are these—placing the main road from this to Launceston, with its tolls, &c., under the charge of Government, the tolls to defray the expense of its repairs—placing the highways, and the making, altering, or repairing the same, in the several police districts, and the establishment of tolls, in the power of thc Courts of Quarter Sessions, by which district Surveyors and Collectors are to be appointed. So far as we can see, a very just regard has been had in pre- paring this bill for the rights of landed proprietors, so that they shall not be in- juriously affected by the making or altering of roads, and so also that where their culti- vated land has been entered they shall be   compensated. In the ??? of the ?????????? the council, doubtless many amendments in detail will be proposed, and we...

THE PAVING AND LIGHTING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

THE PAVING AND LIGHTING ACT. MUCH excitement and dissatisfaction pre-   vail in consequence of the threatened mea-   sure which substitutes Commissioners to tax us, for a Municipal Corporation—a grim, obnoxious, shadow, for a grateful and useful reality. It seems that the market and water rates are not to be entrusted to the control of the citizens ! Are the originators, be they here or in England, afraid of giving existence to a centre of public spirit amongst us ? The idea is consistent with the policy of despotism ; but carried into practice is not likely to be borne by those who inherit, and are resolved to cherish the spirit and the principles of free-men. Should Government persist in this measure in its present features, we understand that a public meeting will be held to protest against it.

THE COLONISTS v. PROBATIONISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

THE COLONISTS v. PROBATIONISM. WHATEVER department of colonial affairs is surveyed, we discern reasons for discon- tent and remonstrance—a bankrupt Trea- sury which no expedient can replenish, the farming interest nearly broken up, mecha- nics looking for the employment of the day, and labourers sinking into beggars and tramps. Where violence and robbery, so frequent in the country, do not alarm, pauperism and petty larceny are the locusts that devour. There is no room for the division of faction, when undistinguishing ruin is threatened. All whose stake in the colony is permanent, are bound to abandon their differences and to unite for common protection ; and they expect that the free members of the Coun- cil who, at least, are the professed guardians of their interests, will assist their enquiries and carry their complaints to the Throne and the Parliament of Great Britain. The system denounced by the Petition docs not involve the question of transportation as a proper secondary p...

THE "MARY." [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

THE " MARY." THE wreck of the Mary has excited com- miseration in every mind, and afforded an occasion for that active kindness which is so honourable to the natural character. But, there are instances of distress consequent on shipwreck, less calculated to arouse our sym- pathies, which, through a defect of arrange- ment in public benevolence, pass unnoticed and without help. The liberal response to the solicitation of want in the present case, warrants the belief that nothing but a plan is required, to raise in this colony a regular fund which may meet the contingencies of the future. We do not say that eight hundred pounds is more than equal to the recent occasion ; but, we apprehend that a calamity equally requiring the exertion of charity, but not so touching to the feelings, if of speedy occurrence, would find the public attention and resources in some de- gree abated ; not that we regret the lively emotion created by deep distress, or wish to divert charity from the objects o...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE FROM SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

LATEST INTELLIGENCE FROM SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SINCE our fourth page was in type we have received Adelaide papers to the 5th instant, which inform us that on the 3rd instant an Ordinance had been passed declaring Port Adelaide and all other Ports of South Australia free Ports,—all tonnage dues,     pilotage, rates, harbour dues, entrance and clearance dues, wharfage dues,, including government wharfages and Custom House fees having been wholly abolished. By the Adelaide Observer of July 5 th, we find that wheat was selling at 3s. to 3s. 3d. per bushel ; oats 3s. ditto ; of maize there was none ; barley (English) 3s. to 3s, 6d. ; Cape ditto 2s. to 2s. 6d. ; flour, fine, £10 por ton ; seconds, £7 to £8 10s. Con- siderable activity prevailed in the wheat market. A change had been made in the Customs Import Duties, which in future will be as follow : tea, 2d. per pound ; sugar, 2s. per cwt. ; coffee, 4s. per cwt.; rice, 1s. 6d. per cwt. ; beer, ale, perry, &...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. COLLECTIONS FOR THE SHIPWRECKED. —We omitted among other contributions for the sufferers by the Mary, to mention that a sum of £18 was collected in St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church. When it is remembered that the Catholics here are not very numerous, and that their circum- stances generally are not affluent, this col- lection does great credit to their benevolence and liberality. No notice either was given prior to the collection being called for. DR. NIXON'S BOOK.—We understand that the paragraph from Dr. Nixon's Book on the Catechism, which we gave in out paper of last week, is quoted by the writer from Cyprian, one of the Fathers. We copied it from a contemporary journal, where it has appeared many times within the last year, without meeting with any con- tradiction. We have hitherto in vain sought to see the Book itself ; as soon as we are in possession of it we shall in justice show how far Dr. Nixon expresses his ap- probation or disapprobation of the sen...

OUR CONTEMPORARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

OUR CONTEMPORARIES. THE GEORGE TOWN MURDER.—The trial of Anthony Kedge for the murder of Thomas Sheppard, occupied the whole of yesterday. Seven witnesses were examined, and the court then adjourned until ten o'clock this morning ; the Jury, having been sworn to hold no communication with any person upon the subject of the trial, were allowed to return to their homes. There are thirty-two witnesses subpoenead, but probably the testimony of the whole will not be required.—Launceston Examiner. July 15. RELEASE FROM GAOL.—It was an- nounced in a Hobart Town journal that their Honors the Judges had decided that a declaration of insolvency entitled a confined   debtor to immediate release. An applica- tion was made to the Chief Justice, the   other day, on behalf of an insolvent named   Montgomery, confined in the gaol at Laun-   ceston, and his Honor immediately ordered him to be dissharged.

HOBART TOWN POLICE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

HOBART TOWN POLICE REPORT. Thomas Cook, disturbing the peace, fined 5s. A comptant was brought against Frederick Rosser, an old hand in the Police Office, for having on the 13th July, unnecessarily struck I. Brown, whom he had in custody. Dr. Belcher observed a disturbance on Sunday last in Macquarie Street, and saw Rosser run after and overtake Brown, and after apprehending him brutally and unnecessarily strike him on the head with a baton when he was making no resistance. It was fortunate Brown did not receive all the blows, or Rosser would have had his life to answer for, as he made several, which he (Mr. Belcher) considered deadly. For the defence—Dr. Bright stated that he saw Brown knock Rosser down, but did not observe that he or any of the constables used unnecessary violence, and when Brown ran away Rosser fol- lowed and overtook him ; Brown had previously knocked two constables down and had their staves in his hand, but he did not see his final appre- hension. / Mr. Capon s...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. From Sydney we have papers to the 5th instant, from which we give such intelligence as possesses interest here. The report of Heki's surrender, or offer of terms to the British power in New Zealand proves to be incorrect. A party was about to proceed in the route taken by Dr. Leichardt, to ascer- tain the truth of the report that had reached Sydney of his having been murdered. TAHITI AND THE FRENCH. " OF what avail have been the representations of those who commiserate the fate of Queen Pomare ? From England, it would seem, no protection is to come, for up to the date of the Coquette's sailing from Tahiti, the long expected Admiral ship. Collingwood, had not arrived there. It was thought the English Admiral was waiting for more definite orders from the Home Government, before he pre- sented himself to Governor Bruat. Will Rear-Admiral Sir George Seymour, when he visits Tahiti with his force, be authorised to restore, peaceably or otherwise, the unfortu- nate Pom...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845

SOUTH AUSTRALIA.   FROM this colony we have intelligence to the beginning of the present month. There is every symptom of improvement in its affairs, the only danger being lest this im- provement should stimulate too much the enterprise of the colonists—induce a spirit of gambling speculation—and be followed by a re-action like that experienced before by the colony. We subjoin his Excellency's speech on opening the Council, and extracts from thc Adelaide papers :— Council Chamber, June 26, 1845. GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL—       In bringing under your consideration the esti- mates, of the contemplated expenditure of the Colonial Government for the year 1846, it will not be necessary for me to trouble you with any length- ened remarks, as these estimates differ but in few respects from those of former years, and the minute discussion to which the financial arrangements of the Government are always subjected in this Council...
