ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 February 1840

ENGLISH NEWS. By the late arrivals we have English papers to the latter end of October. Parliament was prorogued on the 27th August, till the 24th   October, on which occasion the Queen read the following speech:— "My Lords and Gentlemen,   "The public business having been brought to     a close I have now to perform the satisfactory       duty of releasing you from your long and aborious attendance in Parliament. I rejoice that a de-     finite treaty betwen Holland and Belgium, ne- gociated by the mediation of the Five Powers,     has settled the differences between those two countries, and has secured the peace of Europe       from danger to which it had so long been ex-   posed. The same concord which brought these   [?] questions to a peaceful termination, pre- &nbs...

COLONIZVTION OF NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 February 1840

COLONIZATION OF NEW ZEALAND. Government has at last determined to make New Zealand a British Colony— provided they   can persent the chiefs to give up the sove-   reignty of the Islands to the Queen of British Con- sul, and left England in the Druid, 41, for the     prupose of entering into negociations with the       natives for this purpose. Should he succeed, New Zealand will be made a dependency of New South Wales, and Captain Hobson will   [?] as Lieutenant Governor. But Captain   Hobson is not only to endeavour to obtain the     sovereignty of the Islands from the natives—     he is also to endeavour to persuade them to   make over, by purchase or otherwise, all their   [?] to the Queen, and to no other person, as   will be seen by the following extracts from his &...

MURDER OF THE REV. MR. WILLIAMS AND. MR HARRTS. (From the Sydney Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 February 1840

MURDER OF THE REV. MR. WILLIAMS AND MR HARRIS. (From the Sydney Gazette.) Our readers will recollect the arrival of the brig Camden last year in Sydney, bringing the Rev. Mr. Williams and other missionaries, who, after a short stay, proceeded on their charitable mission, which has terminated so fatally. The Camden touched at four islands of the New   Hebrides, named Rotuma, Fetuna, Tanner, and   Erimango. At the two former islands the natives appeared sufficiently friendly, but acted with con-       siderable caution. At Tanna the natives were more friendly than at the other islands, and ex-   pressed an anxious wish for the return of the   vessel, which was promised in four moons. At   this island four [?] teachers were left. The   Camden went from Tanna to Erimango; the natives received some presents of fishhooks, beads, &c., but were exceedingly shy; they w...

BILL DRAWING ON SOUTH AUSTRALIA-CAUTION TO EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 8 February 1840

BILL DRAWING ON SOUTH AUS- TRALIA-CAUTION TO EMIGRANTS. Some of our readers may recollect that twelve   or fourteen months ago we assisted to demol- ish in the most summary manner, a flash banking concern which was attempted to be got up in Adelaide, under the name of the "Agricultural Bank of South Australia,"       by two individuals from the Mauritius, calling   themselves BOUCHER and MILNE. The former   of these persons gave himself out as the bro-         ther of Mr Frederick Boucher, the Secretary or     Manager of the Australiasian Bank at London,   and used the name of that most respectable bank as in some respects connected with his   scheme. It was upon the authority of Mr Kinnear, the late Colonial Inspector of the     Australasian Bank, that we ascertained that that ...

ENCOUNTER BAY. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. Yeilhey Farm, Encounter Bay, February 1, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

ENCOUNTER BAY. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. Yeilkey Farm, Encounter Bay, February 1, 1840. GENTLEMEN -Having resided at this place from the time I landed in the colony, I feel somewhat disappointed at the tardy manner in which the increase of population here pro- ceeds. That Encuuntcr Bay will be thickly inhabited and become a most important town, as the grand port to the Murray, there can be but very little doubt, and I know from per- sonal information, our excellent Governor is very anxious to bring this about as speedily as possible; and Government erections are pro- ceeding in a spirited manner at our port, but still the place does not seem to be known as preferable to most, if not all others in the co- lony. As a residence for colonists, Encountor   Bay is more healthy and suited to the British constitution than Adelaide, and much better adapted for agriculture. From the fact that   rain is much more frequent, the cool sea breezes ar...

The South Australian Register. BANKRUPTCY AND EMERGENCY. BANKRUPTCY AND EMERGENCY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1840. BANKRUPTCY AND EMERGENCY. As we have placed ourselves, according to the Southern Australian, " on the edge of a razor," we trust he will permit us, without a great deal of ceremony, to descend from that rather comfortless position, and meet him on terra firma. It is indifferent to us whether or no we are understoon by our contemporary, so long as we are itelligible to our readers;   and we suggest that the "malady of not   marking," under which our brother, labors cannot always be taken as the msot successful mode of shuffling out of a dilemma. At pre- sent, for instance, we are determined he shall not shirk the points he has mooted without a mark on the forehead for his pains. In a recent number of the Southern Aus- tralian, and in an article certainly not parti- cularly remarkable for its candour or discre- tion, it was boldly spurted that the local Government was in a state of complete...

"WHAT IS DOING AT HOME?" [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

"WHAT IS DOING AT HOME?" This question is one which, in connexion with the colony, is very generally put to new-   comers, and is, at all time, of considerable in-   terest to the older settlers. It would be more amusing than profitable to detail at length the many stores that reach us in regard to the notions that exist in England of the actual state of the province, and the anticipations that are occasionally formed of its future wealth and grandeur. We may, however, indulge our readers with some extracts from a letter   addressed to Osmond Gilles, Esq., with which   we have been favored by that gentleman. The writer is mr Stephen Blunden, who went home in the Zebra, and whose knowledge of the   rural districts was very extenisve:—     "I went to London on the 7th October, and   was very well received by Colonel Torrens and the Commissioners. I underwent an exami- nation beofre ...

FRESH ARRIVALS OVERLAND. WE have plesure in announcing the arrival of the third division of 5000 sheep im- ported by Messrs Finnis and Dutton, making in all imported by these gentleman this season upwards of 15,000 head. Lieut Kessop, R.N, under whose charge this division has been con- ducted, reports that he has met with no losses on the road worth mentioning. Mr Stein has also arrived within our limits with a fine herd of six hundred cattle and     1500 wethers fit for the butcher ; and we have   the pleasure of subjoining the following very   interesting account of another expedition just arrived with upwards of 100 horses and 500   head of cattle, the property of our enterprising   friend Duncan M'Farlane, Esq. From the   great accession of settlers recently arrived, and from the numbers more now in voyage to the province, we augur well for the markets at which this large quantity of stock...

TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

TAXATION. THE time is fast approaching when we must submit to the imposition of taxes; and as the philosophy of taxation may be worthy of study, we submit to the consideration of our readers the following article from a recent number of Tait's Magazine:—   PRODUCTIVENESS OF LOW DUTIES.—The mis- chief and hardship occasioned to the people of   this country by high duties are incalculable. These high duties are imposed either with the view of raising revenue or of protecting the in- terest of some particular trade or class, at the expence of the whole community. In as far as   the first object is concerned, high duties have signally failed, as the history of many com-   modities shews. Our limits only permit us, at     present, to advert to one—coffee. Previously to   1732, the duty on coffee was 2s. per pound, in that year, it was reduced to 1s. 6d., and the duty (hence arising averaged, for se...

DESTRUCTION OF THE TREES ON THE PARK LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

DESTRUCTION OF THE TREES ON THE PARK LAND. To the Editors of the South Australian Register GENTLEMEN - It was with great regret that I observed on walking to North Adelaide that the Natives had lopped the branches off some of the most beautiful trees in the Park for the construction of their bowers. We have, I believe, a "Park Ranger," or some such   officer for the guardianship of the Park Lands. As I presume he receives a salary, it is not unreasonable to enquire what duties he dis- charges. It is, however, a question of consi- derable delicacy and difficulty to determine how far we are entitled to interfere with the Natives in doing what they must look upon as a most innocent and natural thing, lopping a tree. Most assuredly they are their trees ; we have, however, appropriated them, as we         have the land. We have built houses for the Editors. Natives, and are not yet entitled to say   &nb...

To the Editor of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN —I think you might have pub-   lisged my reply in the long-winded, and, from the dirty puff of himself, I should suppose not ever squeamish, gentlemen who rejoices in the splendid appellation of Mr inspector-general   of all the South Australian Hospitals. It would have been not so unimportant as you imagine to show to persons who run down the colony in England, that, in spite of the omin- ous death in the-pot-like office, there were no Hospitals in the colony, save one which,   from his own account, was little better than a dog kennel, and therefore, in receiving nothing   for his inspectorship, he got the full value of   his services. And it would have been not the less desirable to have established the fact that, save for a few sick emigrants, there were   no pampers who required the benefit of a public   hospital. You have thought differently, a...
