PUBLIC MEETING THIS DAY— STATE OF THE PORT—LANDING OF GOODS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 November 1839

PUBLIC MEETING THIS DAY— STATE OF THE PORT—LANDING OF GOODS. THE masters of vessels and the shipping in- terests generally, have long had reason bitterly to complain of the state of the landing place, and the total want of system or regulation at the Port. In numerous instances the most cruel destruction of property has been sus-   tained, while compensation or redress, or even the prevention of a recurrence of the same evils, was out of the question. Heavy wharf- age dues are collected, and the public pay   numerous wharfingers, whose duties, judging from their conduct, are defined to be— not to protect the goods landed on the wharf under their superintendence —and worse than all, we understand, that the masters of vessels, having previously given the usual public an- nouncement to consignees and holders of bills of lading, that on a given day they would com- mence discharging cargo, are liable for goods so landed should theyhappen afterwards to be   lost or stolen. No...

THE NATIVES ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 November 1839

THE NATIVES ON THE MURRAY. We are sorry to announce that since our last number, intelligence has reached Adelaide of another encounter with the natives on the Murray. Mr McLeod, who left Adelaide a few weeks ago, with provisions to meet Cap- tain Finniss' overland party, writes from his encampment twenty five miles from the Mur- ray, on the 5th instant, as follows :—• " It is with feelings of no little regret that I have to acquaint you with the necessity for my falling back five days' journey from where I had reached on 28th October. On the   morning of the 29th, just as we started, Flood and myself in advance, we fell upon an ambush of the blacks, who, rising from the long grass and from behind the trees in considerable num- bers, effectually prevented our proceeding, and attacked us in a most determined manner. Unfortunately we had very few fire-arms and   these principally ineffective. Those that were   serviceable, the men were obliged to ...

BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 November 1839

BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. The fifth annual report of this important establishement has been published. It contains a most satisfactory account of its progress, and announce, that, owing to the progress of the affairs of the Bank and the increasing absorp- tion of new capital by the establishment of Colonial Branches, and by the gradual aug- mentation of its general business, its capital is   to be extended to the full amount authorised by the charter, namely, from £400,000 to £6oo,ooo. The final statement is most promosing.   The undivided profits at December 31, 1837, are given at £20,636, while the realized pro- fits from that date to the 15th October, 1838— the period to which the report reaches—about   nine months and a half, amount to £23,384— making in round numbers, about £44,000, and enabling the Directors to pay a yearly divident of eight per cent., with every pros- pect of an early bonus or a proportionably increased value of stock.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 November 1839

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. WE have great satisfaction in directing public attention to the following brief Report of the last Annual Meeting of this now really pros- perous Company. When we receive the full account we shall have pleasure in noiticing its proceedings at greater length. In the mean- time it is but an act of simple justice onour   part, to state that its geenral colonial manage- ment is daily gaining fresh public confidence. Already, in at least one great department— that of banking—it has proved of essential   benefit to the colony, and produced results which have most fully satisfied the Directors at home: — (Abridged from the Colonial Gazette of July 6.) The third annual general meeting of this com- pany was held on Friday last, the 28th June, at their offices, No. 4, New Broad-street. G. F. Angas, Esq. in the chair. The minutes of the last annual general meeting     were read and confirmed, and after reading apolo-...

GARDENING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 16 November 1839

GARDENING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. On Friday week Mr Stevenson delivered his second lecture on gardening, to the Mechanics' Institute, in the presence of a numerous as- semblage. Mr S. spoke nearly as follows :— Since my last lecture the gardener has had his patience tried and his skill put to the test, by the somewhat unexpected visitation, at that early     period, of a hot northerly wind and a searching   sun. The abundant rains, however, which fol-   lowed them have to a great extent repaired the mischief, and the occurrences must be taken as   a good practical lesson from which benefit will     eventually be drawn on many important points. At home we have to war against cold here we   have to wage it against heat, and so far as my observation goes, the victory may in most in-   stances be on our side. An occasional defeat     may be suffered; but the effect of that up...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1839. THIRD REPORT OF THE COLONIZA- TION COMMISSIONERS. The Third Report of the South Australian Commissioners for 1838, dated 23rd April, and presented to the House of Commons on the 13th May last, has just been received. Its length prevents our giving it entire; but the following abstract will furnish our readers with a sufficiently correct idea of its contents. The progress of Emigration for the first three years is stated thus:— 1836 ......941 souls 1837 ....... 1227 souls 1838.......... 3154 Total 5322 souls.   The Commissioners compliment themselves on having " endeavoured to adopt all practical precautions for securing to the colony the in- calculate advantages of an industrious and moral population" ; but we would suggest that there is still ample room for amendment in the mode in which emigrants are selected, and that in future it would be desirable rather to send the emigrant ships somewhat short ...

Captain Walker being called to the chair,   Mann came forward to address the meeting   said that the present meeting had arisen on ac- count of an action brought by Lieut. Frome against Captain Johnston of the Recovery, in   which the plaintiff claimed and had obtained da- mages for goods of his which had been destroyed on the wharf at the port. Captain Johnston landed a quantity of goods belonging to Lieut.   Frome above high-water mark on the wharf. Great care was taken by the agent for the vessel that the goods should not in any way be damaged. Having thus landed them, Captain Johnston naturally thought that he had discharged his duty —that his responsibility for the safe keeping...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT Tuesday, November 7th. STREET ROBERERY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 23 November 1839

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT   Tuesday, November 7th. STREET ROBERERY. Jeremiah Collins, William Brown, John Wilson, Edward Green, and Sarah Ann Green, were changed with highway robbery. From the evidence of the prosecutor. David Campbell, foreman to Mr. Hardy, Town Sur- veyor, it appears that on the Tuesday previous, at so early an hour as five in the afternoon, he was accosted near the south-east square by the prisoners Collins, Brown, Sarah Ann Green, and a person whom he believed to be Edward Green,   but to whom he could not positively swear. They called his attention to a tree lying on the ground, and as he turned to look at it, they knocked him down. Brown placed his knee upon prosecutor's stomach—the woman held him by the hair—Col-   lins look from his breeches pocket twenty-five pounds in notes, and some odd shillings, and the other prisoner held him by the throat and mouth.   He struggled and called out murder, and made a ...

GEOLOGY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. To the Editor South Australian Register. Yours JOS, MENGE. Klemzig, Nov, 15, 1839. I am, &c. COGNGVIT. GENTLEMEN—In collecting the specimens of minerals for the promotion of the science of geology in this province, I found a variety of mechanical compounds, peculiar to this country, which may become fashionable gems in Europe,   and contribute, therefore, not a little to the pros-   perity of this colony. Such pecularities appear     1. In the chalcedony with woodstone in straight lines, like onyx. 2. In the caclosures of the chalcedony, par-   ticularly the kind of asbestos, called by me rock   silk, which, properly cut and polished, will show a more delightful lustre than the cat's eye from Ceylon. 3. In the opal of different colors, encluding   asbestos, silver-white [?], facticate, gran[?]   from pyrites, &c. Other peculiarities appe...
