ENGLISH NEWS. DESTRUCTION OF THE ROYAL EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 June 1838

ENGLISH NEWS. DESTRUCTION OF THE ROYAL EXCHANGE. TjHK Weet ty Dispatch for lue 14th January gives an account of the destruction by fire of the Royal Exchange and Lloyd's Coffee House, the origin j of which is -still a matter of conjecture. The general opinion was, that it commenced in s me part of the building occupied by Lloyd's. One" thing seems..certain, {hat, however it commenced, it had been burning for a considérable time be fore it became visible. The head waiter and the porter at Lloyd's, who left the premises between eight and nine o'clock had seen èveryUiing safe ! A itrong smell of burning prevailed about the neighbourhood of the Exchange sóine time be fore the fixé was seen.

COMMUNICATION OF MESSRS. BACKHOUSE AND WALKER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 June 1838

. COMMUNICATION OF MESSRS. BACKHOUSE AND WALKER. WE extract from the Tasmanian portions of an interesting communication, the authorship of which, from internal evidence» we are inclined to attribute to our late benevolent and respected; guests, Messrs. BACKHOUSE and WALKER. The means which these gentlemen possess, from occiilar inspection, bf forming an accurate con ception nf the relative natural capabilities of the colonies of Sydney, Van Dieriien's Land,> South Australia, King George's Sound, -and Swan . River, renders the opinions which they: have expressed equally interesting and authori-' tative. We have reason ;to congratulate our selves that Providence has blest us with a soil; and climate, equally advantageous in a pastoral and agricultural point of view. Unbiassed by secular views, the opinion of the excellent men. to whom we have alluded, must produce a strong effect on every unprejudiced mind. The statement given by Messrs. BACKHOUSE and WALKER with reference to Port ...

Ep., lib 1, op 1, v 11 ADELAIDE SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 23, 1838; ARRIVAL OF THE RAPID — RECALL OF THE GOVERNOR ONE of the most elegant and philosophic of the Roman Poets has described and analysed that calm and complacent state of the mind which is induced by a contrast of the struggle of the past with the ease of the present.   The truth and beauty of that description we never felt so vividly before. We can now con- gratulate every true supporter of the principles of our system of Colonization, on the announce- ment of an event which will hereafter be memo- rable in our annals. Thc Spirit of absolutism is crushed once and for ever; the principies of the Colony triumphant, and Governor Hindmarsh   definitively recalled. So much for the assertions of the contemptible crew, who, for the last eight months have maligned the mother country ; libelled the ministers of the ...

SALES BY AUCTION.     HIGHLY VALUABLE FREEHOLD INVESTMENT     Capable of producing £600 per annum MR. ROBERT COCK has been honoured by instructions from the Proprietor to submit to public competition an exceedingly valuable FREEHOLD PROPERTY     Presenting an investment without risk, and standing alone for its permanent eligibility. It may be said, indeed, that so valuable and safe an investment will not be brought into the mar ket for many a year to come. To do justice to such a property, nay, even to enumerate a tithe of its many advantages, would, require the pen   of INIMITABLE ROBINS.   But it is gratifying, to think that it possesses   such strong claims to the attention of the capi talist, that a feeble description to accompany the bare announcement of the Sale will suffice to create great competition.

THE SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS. COPIES of the second Report of the Commis-j sioners to ihe Secretary of State have been re ceived by the Eden. We do not think it neces sary to publish it at full length, a considerable j part consisting of information already familiar to j tis in the Colony. The Commissioners first re-] mark upon the extent of Emigration. " Upto the ? present lime (22nd Djec. 1837), twenty-five ves-j Sids, carrying 2220 settlers,have been despatched from this country, and the Commissioners have the satisfaction ta report, that under the favour of Providence this extensive emigration has been conducted without the occurrence of a single dis-j aster to any of the ships employed ; that there is reason to believe that the mortality daring the | voyage has beea less than the average mortality in this country ; and that the emitan ts have been ! safely landed in the country of their adoption.

EMIGRATION DEPOT. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 June 1838

--w EMIGRATION DEPOT. ! To the Editor of the Southern Australian, SIR,-As the officer to whom alone the remarks in your last number upon the Emigration Dépôt are ap plicable, I beg leave to say a few words in reply. Yon are doubtless aware that no Emig>anl recei*es a free passage to the Colony without furnishing to the Commissioners in England satisfactoiy certificates as to character. The Emigration Agent here is directed to provide shelter for all the Emigrants so sent out j and, I presume, whatever their real characters may afterwards prove to be, he is not authorized to refuse this, when ha can only have unsifted hearsay evidence on one side, against the Commissioners'approval of character on the other. This is so obvious that I con sider yon mean to complain, not that improper charac ters are admitted into the Dépôt, but that they are suffered to remain. With reference to the ejectments then, which you require, allow me to state one or two facts, which either you do not know...

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN-;--' " Quid verum atone dc cens euro, et rogo, et omniiitihp sum.'--HOB. EP., lib. 1, ep. 1,T ll. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY MORNING, JONE 130,1838 THE difficulty of legislating fora distant people, has doubtless been quite as often felt by the Commissioners for this Colony, when they have been drawing Instructions for their officers, as it has been for those officers, when endeavouring strictly to act upon them. Each occasion for fresh regulations, and each proof of the inappli cability of old ones, ought to show that it would be the wiser as well as the easier course, to trust matters of detail to the ability and integrity of those who have to execute them, rather than to the working of minute restrictions which no foresight can adapt to the events of the day. If, indeed, an officer prove to be deficient in ability "Or integrity, his instructions cannot be too care fully restricted, although we think the better plan would be to turn him out at once; apd npon this p...

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 June 1838

- To the Editor af the Southern Australian. . SIR,-I rejoice to see that your paper has pledged itself to advocate the legal rights and moral claims of the Aborigines. I cannot refrain from requesting you to insert the following anecdote? as it goes far to show that those who are here labouring for their civilization, are not casting their seed upon barren ground : A tame native dog belonging to one of our black friends, stole the, other day, a fine fowl out of a hen house. The thief was recognised as he wa* retreating with his prey; aid bis master, upon a complaint being made to bim, informed the ow uer. of the bird he might bring his gun and shoot the dog if he pleased. This offer was not accepted, but the black was told that he ought to destroy the dog, if he really wished to show the white people that he did but desire thus to injure their property. The next day, being seen without the dog, be was asked if be had killed it. He replied he had not, for it was a favorite pet of one...

We are happy that an Institntion of so truly useful a character has been established here, and we trust it will be vigorously carried on.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 June 1838

' ENGLISH EXTRACTS. SEVERE FROST.-Most of the large firers are frozen over. So early as the ISth January, the Kennett and Trent were both frozen, and on the last there is a free passage on the ice from Newbury to Bath. The river Thames, from Kew Bridge upwards, affords a clear passage on the ice. Off Brentford and Richmond many persons may be seen amusing themselves on the ice. Should the frost continue a few days longer, there is very little doubt that the same effects will take place at Battersea and Chelsea. STATE OF TOE THAMES.-On Tuesday this noble river was co completely blocked up with fields of ice in many parts of that it was impossible for the barge men to direct their vessels with any certainty. About 9 o'clock in the morning, the drift ice released a tier of ballast lighters which, in consequence, were terri bly shatteied ; and all attempts to reach them by means of small boats proving ineffectual, they were left to their fate. The Prince George steamer was stuck fast fo...

[ENCLOSURE.] I could have wished, and the Commissioners them selves will wish at a future period for their own honor, and for their own discernment, that your body had taken a different vi»w of the proceedings of Colonel LIGHT. In that case the Colony would not have had to anticipate the loss of bis splendid abilities, of his ripe discriminating judgment, and of that well founded reputation, which imparted a share of its own lústrelo those who retained his services.
