The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1840. THE NEW PORT REMOVAL OF THE CUSTOM HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1840. THE NEW PORT REMOVAL OF THE CUSTOM HOUSE. We have read with the great pleasure, a well written and well timed article in the Chronicle of Tuesday last, on the subject of the port and the removal of the Custom House. We agree almost entirely, with the view taken by our contemporary on these matters, and we trust many of his valuable hints will receive the attention they deserve. That the old Port has     been a disgrace and a most serious injury to the commercial interests of the colony has long   been indisputable; but we confess that we were not prepared for so direct a charge upon the parties whose duty it is to lessen as much   as possible the numerous difficulties with which shipmasters are beset, as is put forth by the   Southern Australian of Thursday. We allude to the following statement from that paper:—   "We are told that seamen...

THE POLICE-CRIMINAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

THE POLICE - CRIMINAL STATISTICS. PERHAPS the heaviest item of Government expenditure is that connected with the police force. While we hear our willing testimony to its general efficiency, it occurs to us that the necessity for its establishment on the present extended scale has been chiefly in- fluenced by the neglecting of measures of easy execution, and the adoption of which are still urgently demanded for the protection of the colony against it further and more expensive     increase. No precautions have been adopted to prevent the importations of escaped con- victs or ticket-of-leave men from the neigh-   bouring penal settlements ; and the con-   sequence is, that South Australia is overrun   with persons of these descriptions, and the   police find constant employment in appre-   hending them. That crime has been seriously increased by the unchecked importation of   this c...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [We have received the communication of an Old Colonist, and his letter certainly shall be published, although we think that at present it would be [?] [?] to, at least, now that it has been [?].       The result will show whether he is right or wrong,   and his able letter then may be produced according to   our [?], beneficial effect [?] [?]       there is jobbing going on in a certain quarter with regular to the Registration Act. I may be so; but we can assure him, that in the highest quarter it will not be [?]; and we know that the Adocate     General will lend himself to nothing of the sort.

MARRIAGE AND REGISTRATION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

MARRIAGE AND REGISTRATION ACT. We are glad to observe that both these meas- ures are at present under the consideration of the Council, and that in the course of a week or two they will become part of our colonial law. Previous to that event, however, we hope some intimation will be given to the public of the nature and character of the lead- ing provisions contemplated. Both involve principles of the highest importance, and we know no legislative measures which more di- rectly or immediately affect the interests of every individual colonist. We feel confident, therefore, that his Excellency will think it due alike to himself and to the public to make known the proposed enactments previously to their becoming law.

SAVINGS AND PICKINGS. To the Editors of the South Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

SAVINGS AND PICKINGS. To the Editors of the South Register. GENTLEMEN—As are believed to be in earnest in your excertions to save the people's money. I think you will be glad to hear that our new Surveyor General is determined to help you to the best of his ability in that timeous work. We are to have no more smoking surveyors, young gentlemen scape- graces surveyors' laborers, rum drinkers, or kangaroo chasers. If they don't work they must cut. Have you seen the notice in the Gazette about the boundaries of sections?   You will do good by copying it, *and by ask-   ing Mr Frome why a rule that is good for the country is not good for the town? What need     is there for a town-surveyor, with the best horse and eight of the idleest young fellows in the colony, who won't work after two o'clock in the afternoon, at his heck, and all at out cost? The expences of his party for six   months amount to more than the original p...

HONESTY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

HONESTY. Is our last we mentioned that the Adelaide Chronicle and the Southern Australian had the public dinner to his Excellency the Govern- nor. The Chronicle took the earliest oppor-   tunity of acknowledging, not only that the report was copied from the Register, but that   a portion of the type was lent him from this office. The Southern Australian of Thursday     thanks us in the following terms:—     "We regret that we did not last week acknow-     ledge the source from whence we derived the report of the Dinner to his Excellency—it was a mere oversight, which we hasten to correct. We copied it nearly verbatim from the Register, and   the known incorrectness of the report must there- fore rest with that Journal." There is a little cool and almost comical im- pudence in the above. It is a pity our contemporary did not think his readers deserved simthing better f...

MORE OVERLAND ARRIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

MORE OVERLAND ARRIVALS. Last week our old friend Mr Huon arrived overland from New South Wales on his second   trip, with above six hundred head of fine cattle, all of which, we are happy to say, he has since sold at satisfactory prices. Mr Huon came by the southern or Portland Bay route, explored by Mr Bonney. Early in the present week Mr Howe, ac-   companied by his brother, arrived with a splendid herd of 800 cattle, all in good con-   dition. We have been favored by that gentle- man with the following exceedingly interesting notes of his expedition, which we publish with great pleasure :— NOTES OF A JOURNEY OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALES TO ADELAIDE.     The overland party which has just arrived consists of 800 head of cattle—400 bullocks fit for the knife, and the remaineder breeding cows—   the property of Mr Howe. The party left Mr Howe's station on the   Murrumbidgee on the 14th October...

CORONER'S COURTS. To the Editors of the South Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

CORONER'S COURTS. To the Editors of the South Register. GENTLEMEN— As a juryman on the inquest at North Adelaide this day, I take the liberty of calling public attention through the medium of your columns to the conduct of Mr Nicholls, the coroner on that occasion, in turning out of the jury room an individual who wished to be present. Mr Nicholls, I think, does not know his duty — that, save in cases where the ens of public justice are likely to be frustra- ted, and when the Croner is warranted in   excluding strangers, all her Majesty's lieges have a right to be present at inquests, and the coroner acts unjustifiably in turning any man out of his court, or threatning to commit him because he hesitates to leave it. With great personal respect for the gentleman who was foreman of the jury on that melancholy occa- sion, I must say I expected from him some thing more than a quiet submission to so flagrant a violation of the liberty of the subject —and I hope you will give...

DEATH OF MR SAMUEL STEPHENS [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

DEATH OF MR SAMUEL STEPHENS It is our painful duty to record this week the death, by a fall from his horse, of our esteemed   brother colonist Mr SAMUEL STEPHENS. In another part of our paper will be found an account of the melancholy particulars as given in evidence on the inquest which was held on Monday last.   When the fatal accident took place Mr Stephens   was on his return from the Murray, whither he had accompanied Mr Morphett and a party of gentlement for the purpose of examining the special surveys taken there by Mr Morphett. A few hundred yards before reaching the brow of the last bill he had to descend, Mr Stephens pro- ceeded in advance of the party, and was observed to halt his horse on the summit where it is usual to dismount before commencing the descent. This was the last time he was seen before the   fatal accident. On reaching the foot of the hill   the friends who had accompanied him found him &...

PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 25 January 1840

PORT LINCOLN. MATTW. SMITH. The hon. Capt. Sturt, Assistant Commissioner, &c. J. B. HARVEY. To Matthew Smith, Esq. We have received from the hon. Assistant. Commissioner, Captain Sturt, the following interesting communication addressed to him by M. Smith, Esq., Resident Magistrate of Port Lincoln. We also subjoin a letter from       Dr Harvey, the Harbour Master and Collector     of Customs of the settlement, addressed to and transmitted by Mr Smith. Dr Harvey has forwarded a first rate sample of the hay made from the grass on the Downs in the neighbour- hood of the Port, and intends, we believe, to ship 40 or 50 tons of it for the Port Adelaide market. We are informed by Captain Sturt that the board of wood forwarded by the Resident Magistrate is, as nearly as can be determined without an inspection of the leaves   of the tree, which were not sent, from the variety known as the flooded gum :- &...
