OVERLAND ARRIVAL OF SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

OVERLAND ARRIVAL OF SHEEP. We have the pleasure to announce the arrival of Mr Cameron overland from New South Wales with a fine flock of about six thousand sheep. Mr Cameron found the Darling dry about thirty miles above its junction with the Murray. We have been favored with the following brief account of that important cir-   cumstance, and of his journey from thence to Adelaide :— On arriving at the junction of the Darling with the Murray, it's appearance gave every indication of the body of water being supplied by the back water of the Murray, and that the Darling itself was not unusually high. This I found to be the case, for after proceeding up the river for about thirty miles, I had my most sanguine wishes realized, by ascertaining that the river had dwindled away to a mere chain of ponds, and in some parts perfectly dry. I removed the sheep, following this course, and I am happy to say, found no impediment from scrub. On the western side is a very fair travellin...

ATTACK ON THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

ATTACK ON THE GOVERNOR. We witnessed with a very considerable degree of regret, the course which the Southern Australian thought it expedient to adopt in the first instance in reference to the late expedition of the Governor, and that regret has not been diminshed by its more recent animadversions on the same subject. Our   business, however, is not further to expose the manner in which our contemporary endeavours to shuffle out of his announcement of the contents of despatches which he has never seen, nor to observe that the alledged incor- rectness of our statement, made, by the way, on the best authority, formed no justification of his own fictitious and extravagant horrors. We leave him to the full enjoyment of his defence on these points. His attack, however, on the utility of the expedition demands a brief notice. It strikes us that an excellent practical re- futation of much that can be said against the expediency of the Governor's researches in the interior is t...

THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

T HE POST OFFICE. Yours most respectfully, R. T. Adelaide, January 10, 1840. We publish the following letter from a mer- cantile friend, and we trust the recommendation it contains will be forthwith adopted, as one of great convenience to the community— To the Editors of the South Australian Register, GENTLEMEN—As method and arrangement   are the soul of business, I would respectfully point our to the proper authorities the very great inconvenience felt by the Post Office being without a letter box, which should be open to the public from an early hour in the morning to a late one in the evening, in order that merchants, bankers, and others should have no obstruction in communicating with the   Post Office after the usual hours of business. It appears to me unreasonable that individuals and firms conducting extensive operations should be obliged to post their communications with   the city in the middle of the day, whereas, if a box were opened...

THE PROPOSED PUBLIC SLAUGHTER HOUSE. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. January 5th, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

THE PROPOSED PUBLIC SLAUGHTER HOUSE. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. January 5th, 1840. GENTLEMEN —You will be astounded to learn that a Public Slaughter House! is to be erected in the most populous part of North Adelaide, and where it is certain to become a disgusting and pestilential nuisance to the nu- merous respectable families settled in that   quarter. Having expended a large sum of money in building and filling up my private residence at a short distance from the intended slaughter house, I shall be obliged to remove if it cannot be prevented, or if there is not law in the place by which, with the help of the other inhabitants who will suffer equally with myself, I could prefer a bill of indictment against the parties for a nuisance. Will you be so kind as notice the the subject and favor us with your advice how to act. A Proprietor in Kermode-Street. [We agree entirely with our correspondent   on the subject of the proposed nuisanc...

PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

PORT LINCOLN. I am, Sir, yours, C. C. DUTTON. We have received the third number of the Port Lincoln Herald, of the 21st Dec., and to judge from its business-like appearance the new set- tlement would seem flourishing one. The Recovery, Capt Johnson, had arrived with 1600 sheep, and arrivals of stock were anticipated   overland both from this place and Sydney. We regret to observe, from the following extract of a letter published by the Herald, that parties are dissatisfied with the plan of the town. The writer observes:— " In consequence of injudicious alterations in the origiuul survey of the town, made by a parcel of speculators assembled round a colored chart, we shall have one of the worst laid out towns in any British colony. Had it been left entirely to   our talented surveyor the case would have been   very different." We think blame is here laid on parties who do not deserve it. We know nothing about the talents of the surveyor mentione...

TATEST FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

T ATEST FROM INDIA. We have been favored, with Calcutta papers to the 30th August. It appears that in the settlement of the Persian dispute between the rival Monarch, the British army under the command of Sir John Keane, has taken an active part in support of the Sha Sooja against the tool and creature of Russia, Dost Mahom-   med. The following account of the latest affairs and the capture of a fortress of great strength by our troops will be read with     interest: — Fall of the Fortress on Gaizai—The army of the Indus arrived before Ghuzuce on the 21st July, and the advance guard was fired on from the Fort. A position was taken up to the north, on the   Cabul road. The place was reconnoitred by Sir   John Keane and the engineers on the 22nd. It was famed to be strong, with a lofty citadel com- manding the country, surrounded by a middle- sized town—strengthened by a massive wall on a natural mound encircled by a dee...

CHINA. By the kindness Captain Walker, we have received Mauritius papers to the 17th November. Recent news from China, it is said by the Maurician, had been received in Port Louis, which state that in consequence of the severe measures of the Chinese Government to repress the introduction [?] the country was in               a state [?] and that in                 severe, [?] [?] and police were       set a defence, and placards exhibited at the entrance of the villages which are translated as   bearing "Opium [?] [?] here; and it may be       freely brought to market!"   There had been a [mutiny?] between the natives   and sailors, in which lives were lost.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, January 3, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, January 3, 1840. The Council met at ten o'clock. The Governor stated that it had been represented to his Excellency by some of the mercantile Inhabitants of Adelaide, that their interest were suffereing considerably from the effects of the Order in Council of the 7th September, 1839, which imposed a prohibitory duty on wheat, flour, and rice, exported from this pro- vince. It appeared to his Excellency, on reference to the favorable reports which had been received from the neighbouring settle- ments, that no serious evil was likely to result from the removal of the existing restriction, and he therefore proposed that the exportation of wheat, flour, rice, and the other articles specified in the Act of Council No. 3, 3rd Victoria, should be permitted, on payment of a duty of threepence for every hundred pounds weight. Approved, and ordered accordingly. Saturday, Janary 4. The Council met pursuant' to a special sum- mons, at half-past on...

PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

PORT LINCOLN. In another part of this day's Register, will be found extracts from the last number of the Port Lincoln Herald; but we have since been favored with the following letter addressed by Captain Johnson of the Recovery, to Captain Walker, which we have great pleasure in lay- ing before the public : — Port Lincoln, Dec. 25, 1839. MY DEAR SIR—I am happy to inform you that we had a very good passage to this place; I left the Bay on Friday morning, and got in   here on Sunday morning. this really is a splendid harbour; I think it one of the best I have ever been in, it is so easy of access, and not a hidden danger about its bays; in fact the largest ship of the line might sail all round the bay within a few fathoms of the shore, in from six to eight fathoms water, without the slightest risk, and the whole British navy might be moored here in perfect security. I have had an excursion into the interior about sixty miles to the north-east, and passed through a great d...

BATHING-PUBLIC BATH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

BATHING—PUBLIC BATHS. The Chronicle of the 30th ult., has the fol- lowing paragraph regarding bathing and having baths erected in the city or neighbourhood:— "In a climate like ours, where personal clean- liness and ablution are absolutely necessary to the preservation of health, and where the lower orders can avail themselves of no opportunities of bathing except in the dangerous pools of the   Torrens, we are surprised that none of our spirited speculators have turned their attention to the erection of baths in the town, or of bathing places in the river itself. The new market-place, which is at present in the market, is admirably adapted for the former; and a platform erected over the Torrens, with a grated well about four feet deep in the centre for a plunge-bath, would answer all the purposes of the river itself, without its danger. A bath-company might be embodied— the shareholders in which, we have no doubt, would find it a most profitable invest- ment, and would...

LEGALITY OF [?]CGLESIASTICAL MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

LEGALITY OF ECCLESIASTICAL MARRIAGES. To the Editor of the Adelaide Chronicle Sir—As recent article in the South Aus- tralian Register on marriage laws in this colony seems to me to place a marriage ceremony per- formed in Adelaide in rather a doubtful light, you will oblige me by inserting in your paper the following remarks, which, as the matter now stands, I feel myself called upon to make. After stating that the legality of the marriage I solemnized has been questioned, the writer of the article referred to says—" With regard, then, to the particular marriage alluded to, we hold it to quite clear that, viewed as a religious ceremony, it is altogether invalid." If he here means simply to affirm that the mere circumstance of the mar- riage being solemnized by me, as a clergyman, does not constitute, and is not necessary, to its validity in the eye of the civil law. I per- fectly agree with him. By the law of Scot- land, and the only law too by which in this colony we must at prese...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Monday, December 9. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 January 1840

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT.   Monday, December 9. James Gibb was placed at the bar on a charge of assault preferred against him by his wife. He said the misconduct he had been guilty of was the effect of drinking, from which be promised to abstain in future, and his wife being satisfied       with the assurance, and not pressing the charge, he was liberated. Tuesday. William Smith was brought up from the port charged on suspicion of robbing Samuel Salter of thirteen pounds. There was, however, no proof against Smith, and he was discharged.
