The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1,1840. THE AUDIT BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1840. THE AUDIT BOARD. ON Monday the following gentlemen were named by the Magistrates to form, in con- junction with the Auditor-general, the Board of Audit recently proposed by his Excellency the Governor: —William Wyatt, Esq., J.P., John Hallett, Esq., J.P., and Thomas Willams, Esq. The confirmation of the no- mination and the formal constitution of the board is announced in the last Gazette. A considerable misconception has very generally prevailed with reference to the powers and duties of the Board. We beg to direct attention to the observations on this subject, made by his Excellency the Governor in Council on Friday, which will be found in the proceedings of the Council, in another part of our paper. As it appears from this explanatory state- ment that the powers and proceedings of the Board of Audit are to be regulated by the instructions of the commissioners to the Auditor-general, we reprint these instructions...

STATE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

STATE OF THE COLONY. We have never been puffers of the colony; and we have never been alarmists. It is not in our power therefore, when one of these trades fails or falls into disrepute, to take up the other. Our contemporary of the Southern Australian, is in a happier position, in that respect he has clearly the advantage of us. He has puffed for the last couple of   years, with the most persevering noise, every thing in the colony, and everybody in the co-   lony, unconnected with the Government; but being at last out of breath—if not broken winded, and somewhat disheartened at the re- sult of his laudations, he now strikes another chord, takes to his rattle, springs an alarm and screams " wolf! wolf!" with all his might and main What has come over our oddly condi- tioned friend we cannot conjecture. Has he   been bitten by a New Zealander, or made his fortune and sold off? We know not, but that he is in a most particular panic is without &am...

DELIVERY OF MAILS-CONDUCT OF MASTERS OF VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

DELIVERY OF MAILS—CONDUCT OF MASTERS OF VESSELS. One of the most ancient and crying grievances which the colonists have been subjected to is the delay in the delivery of ship mails. Scarcely a fresh ship arrives but a repetition of the same mismanagement, carelessness, and neglect which attended the previous ones takes place. Nay, it appers that as the mer- cantile interests of the province become greater, so do these irregularities and annoyances increase. A recent case, however, has fairly overset our powers of patient endurance, and its flagrancy, we are really glad to say, is such   that the authoritiesmust act at length.   On Sunday last, the barque City of Ade- laide, commanded by W. R. Donaldson, arri- ved in Glenelg roads. The mail was not received here till Tuesday, and the letters and papers it contained were not delivered till Wednesday morning. The master of the vessel, Donaldson, was permitted to land without the mails—pay, that person has decl...

FINE WOOLED SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

FINE WOOLED SHEEP. I am, &c., JOHN HALLETT. We believe there is in the colony a very large proportion of the finest bred sheep of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land. Many of the rams and ewes from Mr Archer's celebrated flocks, as well as a choice selection of the best breeds of New South Wales, have been imported. We have also had, direct from England, numerous importations from Lord   Western, and the the great care and attention that is being paid to the quality of the sheep   by our colonists is likely to assure South Aus- tralian wool a first rate place in the home mar-   ket. We are informed that the large flocks   recently brough overland by Capt Finniss are   of a very superior breed; and indeed we re- member that they were so described in the New South Wales papers when giving an account of their sale. The following letter from one of our oldest and most successful colonists, John Hallet, Esq, J.P. on the subjec...

MINISTERIAL VIEWS OF AUSTRALIAN COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

MINISTERIAL VIEWS OF AUSTRA LIAN COLONIZATION. The following article from the Globe of August 6, may be taken as expressing the opinions of the present ministry on the prin- ciples of Colonization adopted in regard to South Australia, and especially touching the inviolability of the application of the monies arising from the sale of land, to the supply of labor exclusively. We take the success of the South Australian Memorial on the point to   be certain, and that not only will the guarded encroachment upon the Emigration fund that is therein asked for, be granted without hesi- tation, but that the equally important claim to       the pri- vilege of self-government will at the same time be conceded, seeing that we do   not desire to burthen the mother country with the expences of our local administra- tion:— It will be perceived with pleasure that Go- vernment are about to do away with the system of jumbling together t...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

ENGLISH NEWS. We have news from England, via Hobart Town, to the 20th September. There is nothing of particular importance. We subjoin an outline of what appears most interesting :— The Chancellor of the Exchequer was con- tinuing in town to carry into effect the uniform   penny postage. Lieut. Gen. Sir Richard Jackson was appointed commander of the forces in Canada, in the room of Sir John Colborne.   There were three candidates for Manchester in the room of Mr P. Thompson, appointed Gover- nor general of the Canadas—Sir George Murray   on the Conservative interest—Col. Thomson, put in nomination by the radicals—and Mr Gregg,   a manufacturer, by the whigs, supported by the   Ministers. All the regiments not serving in India are in-   creased to 800 men, and the latter are to consist of an establishment of 976 rank and file. Montreal papers to the 9th August had been   received; a fresh insur...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The City of Adelaide has brought us only a very few papers, our files from the 12th De- cember being still due . The price of flour and wheat had risen to a most extraordinary height, there being very little of either in the place.   This, however, is merely temporary. The harvest was at hand—a small sample of wheat had been brought to market, and the crops were of the finest description. There is every   probability, therefore, that ere this the prices   are reduced one half. Vegetables were plentiful and cheap. We find little of interest in the papers, and therefore merely give the following extracts regarding the crops, &c:—   THE HARVEST.—At length a prospect of cheap         bread begins to dawn, the sickle having com-     menced its operations. From the various ac-   counts we have received, there is reason to...

PROCEEDING OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, January 24, 1840. The Council met at ten o'clock BOARD OF AUDIT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

PROCEEDING OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, January 24, 1840. The Council met at ten o'clock BOARD OF AUDIT. The Governor stated he had reason to believe that very erroneous impression had been received with respect to the proposed Board of Audit. It had been supposed by some person that in com- stituting it his Excellency must have the intention of removing responsibility from himself to the Board. This was not the case. His Excellency well knew that the Government and Colonization Commissioners would hold him alone resposible for what he had done—let the opinions of others,   now that it was done, be what they would. In   any case, his Excellency would not share the   credit or discredit of the great public financial transactions of the colony during the the past twelve months with any one; he alone was re-   sponsible for them; and he was quite prepared   not only to justify them, but to prove that the brightest ...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 1 February 1840

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. A case of great importance to the colonists generally, and one that should be known to all, came on for hearing before the Resident Magis- trate on Tuesday the 20th January. It was that of an information under Sir James Graham's act,     laid by Captain Gilbert of the Moffatt, against   James Mempis, a passenger on board that vessel, for harbouring and secreting a seaman named Gardner, who had deserted. It appeared from the evidence that Gardner, who was an articled seaman on board the ship, together with many others of the seamen, absented themselves without leave, and on an application made some short time pre-   vious, the Resident Magistrate had issued a warrant for the apprehension. The warrant had been in the hands of the Police some days, who had received information where the runaways were likely to be found, and had gone to Mempis's house several times, but without success. The mate of the ship,...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1840. EXPENDITURE-RESPONSIBILITY AND EMERGENCY. We are always glad to gain a point-even if it be not much—on the principle that "a pin a day is a great a year;" and we therefore take at its value the admission of the Southern Australian that though we cannot argue with   his own profundity, we can at least laugh a little more merrily. We have, according to our contemporary, one great defect, and that is   that he can never understand our agrument and consequently very rarely can answer it   if it this may be probably accounted for by the   circumstances that we are in the habit of inter-   [?] the staple of our reasoning with [?] [?], and it is not very easy to [?] with the one and at the same time decline to notice the other. Although it is to be feared that our age and a slight taint of obstinacy preclude     much chance of amend...

In the meantime, Mr     Donaldson, master of the City of Adelaide, has published a letter in the Southern Austra-         lian, with the view we suppose, of exculpating     himself from his share of the blame...

CHURCH RUILOING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 February 1840

CHURCH BUILDING SOCIETY. It is most pleasant to learn by every arrivaL from England that the interst which was first taken for the permanent welfare of South Australia, not merely still exists, but flourishes and increases, step by step, with the progress of our colony. the statement and prospectus of the Church Building Society, which will be found among the advertisements of this day, show that our more humble colonial efforts are still regarded with generous sympathy, and   that, assisted with the more ample means of our friends at home, South Australia is likely   to maintain its station and pre-eminence as a     moral and religious community. We have certainly only to commend the liberality of one colonists hitherto, and when we state that, during the three years of our social existence,           a sum rather exceeding £10,000 has been vo- luntarily collected fr...
