IMPORTANT NEWS FROM CHINA. From the Singapore Frce Press Extrn, of Sept., 30. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM CHINA. From the Singapore Free Press Extra, of Sept., 30. Editors Register. The schooner Hellas at Singapore, from China, which left Macoa on the 10th September, has brought intelligence of a more momentous nature than any that has yet preceded it, important as the accounts trom the same quarter have now been for many months past. It seems we are now at open war with the Chinese—but the par- ticulars will be found in the following letter from Kong-kong:— Hong-kong, September 9, 1839. On the 26th of August, all the British were ordered to quit Macao, on a notice of twelve hours; and we were all compelled to embark with so much precipitation as scarcely to find time to take along with us our acocunt-books and clothes—a day later, and not one of us could have gone on board the ships; as H. M. Frigate Volage   had then anchored in Macao roads. The death of   a Chinese in the scuffle at Hong-kong is the cause of this expulsion. LIN had called...

PORT LINCOLN. (From (he Port Lincoln Herald of the 29th January.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

PORT LINCOLN. (From the Port Lincoln Herald of the 29th January.)   SINCE the publication of our last number, we have had another arrival of stock. Some weeks ago, Mr Driver came from Adelaide, by the Abeona, bringing with him a horse, that he might have the better opportunity of examining the country in this neighbourhood. He did so in company with Mr Dutton, and the result is, he has again visited Port Lincoln bringing with him upwards of seventy head of cattle, among which are five working bullocks. This fact speaks vo- lumes. It is scarcely a month since the Re- coverybrought us 1,700 sheep, and now, in addi-   tion to our former stock, we have seventy head   of cattle, principally young cows. Let those who have ever doubted of our com-   plete success, consider these things. Unhappily, there are many influential men holders of land in this survey, who, with the means of assisting us (and at the same time benefiting themselves)...

PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, January 31, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Friday, January 31, 1840. THE Council met at ten o'clock. Besides the members of Council, his honour the Judge was present. His Honor, alluding to the bill which was before the Council for declaring the laws and for amend-   ing the existing Jury act, recommended that per- sons holding office under the Government should be included in the jury list, and should be liable   to be summoned by the Sheriff in common with other jurors, but that any such person should be   exempted from serving on a jury if he could pro- duce a certificate from the principal officer of the   department in which he was employed, showing that the services of the juror were required by his official duties during the session of the Supreme Court. His Honor's recommendation was approved, and the Advocate-general was requested to amend the bill accordingly. The Governor stated that he had received a memorial from several ...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Tuesday, February 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Tuesday, February 4. HOUSE BREAKING.—Duncan Campbell ap- peared at the bar, charged with breaking into the dwelling-house of Mr Eyre in Rundle-street, and stealing a watch. It appeared from the evidence that Campbell had been in the employ of Messrs Eyre and Ronney as shepherd, and having occasion to call at their lodgings re- peatedly, was well acquainted with the premises.   He called there on Monday last, and was informed by Ellen M'Donald, the servant, that Mr Bonnery had gone out of town, and would not return before Saturday. The prisoner knew that Mr Eyre had left this place for King George's Sound and Swan River. The servant went to bed as usual, having first seen that the windows in Mr Eyre's and Mr Bonney's sleeping-rooms were fastened. About two o'clock in the morning she was awoke by the noise of some one entering her room, and called out " Who is there?" Pre- vious to going to be she had placed her watch on the table in the kitch...

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

ENGLISH NEWS. The net produce of the revenue for the year ended on the 10th of October last exceeds the receipts of 1038 by 1,441,132l. Repayments of advances and "other monies" raise the excess to 1,713,971/ ; but these accidental receipts must not be put down as ordinary income. On the quarter there is an increase of 240,699/. over the corresponding period of 1838. PROPOSED NEW COLONY.—" A Prospectus for Colonizing the North-eastern parts of Naustralia under the appellation of the Colony of Victoria in honor of her present Majesty, the Queen of England." Benjamin Sullivan, a re-tired Major of the British Army, a half-pay Major of the Por-- tuguese service, and a Police Magistrate in New South Wales, has published a work with the above title, lately. Major Sullivan's present pro-   ject is merely a revision of a former scheme transmitted to the Secretary of State for the   Colonies in 1833, and refused to be countenanced by the Government in 1834. Major Su...

TRIFLES TO SMILE AT. "Shreds and Catches." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

TRIFLES TO SMILE AT. "Shreds and Catches." Two gentlemen, noted for their fondness of exaggeration, were discussing the fare at their different hotels. One otherved that at his hotel he had tea so strong it wan necessary to confine it in an iron vessel. "At mine," said the other,   "it is made so weak it has not strength enough   to run ou of the tea-pot." It it very pleasant to find yourself married not only to your wife, but to all her relations within fifty miles. A loco foco editor out west apologises for not   giving his brethren credit for such articles an he extracts, by saving he is opposed to the credit system tee-totally. An absent-minded gentlemen, on retiring at night, put his dog into bed and kicked himself down stairs!   Slippery Places—A fellow coming out of a   tavern one icy morning, rather blue, fell on the   door step. Trying to regain his footing, he re- marked—" If, as the Bible says, ...

DETENTION OF THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 15 February 1840

DETENTION OF THE MAILS. R. W. DONALDSON, Barque City of Adelaide. WE have received the following letter from Captain Donaldson of the City of Adelaide, and we publish it because we feel Captain Donaldson has a right to every fair means of explanation or defence ; and we are certainly in no manner displeased because he has more   fully exculpated himself from blame than at first sight appeared possible. At present the   pilot service at teh port must bear the odium.           We were informed last week that a "searching   enquiry" was instituted, but we have heard no more of it. There is neglect, and gross neglect too, in some quarter; and what we   regret more, there does not seem much alacrity to satisfy the jsut complaints of the public, or to prevent the recurrence of transactions dis- creditable to any respectable port, and most injurious to the commercial interes...

STATE OF THE COLONIAL MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 February 1840

STATE OF THE COLONIAL MARKETS. HOBART TOWN . —The arrival of a vessel from Canton with tea was expected to create some alter-   ation in the price of that article, but no, the con-   signeess were instructed to obtain the market price, not to sell under, or to stand for an ad- vance. Tea consequently remains at £10 per chest. In colonial produce there has been some little stir, owing to the arrival of several quantities of new grain. Wheat may now be quoted at 15s. which it the very best price. A large quantity deliverable in six weeks has been sold at 10s , and we have heard of one lot being sold deliver- able within a month, so low as 6s. Butchers meat remains at the same high prices but greatly       improved in quality. The highest price of fine bread is 9d, some bakers are selling at 8d., which may be considered the standard price; houshold bread 6d; brown bread 4d the 2lb. loaf.   SYDNEY.—The ship Sa...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. In answer to our correspondent G, we may mention that an account of the downfall of Ghizui will be found in our paper of the 11th January last. Our angry friend is labouring under a delusion We could have no with to injure the Town Surveyor personally; and we know not how the abolition of the uselessly expensive office he holds could do so, seeing that his abilities as a surveyor would secure him field employment. "[?] in the Bush" has attacked       the office, not the individual; but should the case arise when the public interests demand that both should be noticed, and no correspondent be found to do so, we   are not of the order to hesitate in our course. The story of the Slaughter House puchased must be false. If the writer, however, will favor us confidentialy with his name we will publish his letter. "Two days in   the Bush" in our next.

STORIES AT HOME ABOUT THE PROVINCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 February 1840

STORIES AT HOME ABOUT THE PROVINCE. OUR friend John Bull has always been proverbial for his capacious swallow, and tales from abroad, however strange or extravagant the doings they relate may be, are greedily de- voured. No imposition, however, can be more gross than the representations which are every now and then given of the statte of the abori- ginal inhabitants of South Atutralia—than whom a more abject, brutish, and irreclaimable class of beings does not exist on the face of the globe. The following account we find in a late number of the South Australian Record, and the person who furnished the "information"     it contains, has rather impudently hoaxed his wondering listeners at the South Australian Rooms. We tell them that there never was any " native postman," and the whale-gorging story is—" very like a whale" As it may amuse our readers, few of whom ever see the South Australian Record, to peruse "the gentleman's " account of the natives, and ha...

OVERLAND IMPORTATION OF CONVICTS. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 February 1840

OVERLAND IMPORTATION OF CONVICTS. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN—It is much to be regretted that the overland gentlemen, who have contributed   so much to the advancement of this   colony, are not provided with a better class of men than those which generally accompany them. In a recent instance, it appeared   that out of fourteen men transported or convicted, only one was an emigrant, the remainder   being adventurers from the neighbouring   colonies. To prevent altogether such a supply would be impossible, but to check the evils consequent on it ought to be attempted, and     the sooner the better. We know the police have been active, but still may be made more so by distributing them in these districts where their presence is most required. The district of Mount Barker, for instance, is on the high   road in the Lake and the Murray— is the resting pl...

IMPORTANT FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 22 February 1840

IMPORTANT FROM INDIA. OUR respected and energetic fellow-colonist, Charles Flaxman, Esq., who left us a few months since on a visit to England, and took Calcutta by the way, has been disabusing the minds of the Indian public of the extravagant misinterpretations which Messrs Davies,   Chillcott, and other worthies of that class, thought proper to circulate regarding South Australia. We have great pleasure in pub-   lishing Mr Flaxman's last letter to the editor of the Englishman, which we find in that paper of the 1st November, and of adding from private and authentic information, that Mr Flaxman has been eminently successful in conveying to our Indian friends a true and faithful account of the actual state and pros- pects of the colony at the time he left it:— To the Editor of the Englishman Sir—The documents referred to in my letter   of 26th instant, which you have done the colony of South Australia the service of inserting pro- minently in ...
