MOORGATET-STREET BRITISH AND AUSTRALASIAN BANK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 February 1840

MOORGATE-STREET BRITISH AND AUSTRALASIAN BANK. It May afford some satisfaction to the unfortu-   nate dupes of this humbug establishment to know that some time ago several of the drafts appeared in Sydney, and were accepted and duly honored at maturity by a leading partner of one of the most respectable mercantile houses in that city—these bills were drawn upon the establishment in Sydney, the mana- gers and directors of which had, in fact, no existence there— the whole affair, but for the intervention of the gentleman alluded to, ap- pearing to be a complete swindle. It has been conjectured that the drafts may have heen protected by this party to save the credit of some friends in London whose names appeared ■ as directors, or in the expectation of the officers of the Bank afterwards arriving and indemnifying him. In this way he may have become the victim of this " airy nothing," which, it was generally understood, so far back at September or October, 1838, would never...

TO NEWLY-ARRIVED SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 February 1840

TO NEWLY-ARRIVED SETTLERS. It is not very long ago since we read in an English pamphlet, addressed to intending emi-   grants in South Australia, and professing to give them much good advice and all requisite information of the country to which they were about to proceed, a definition of what is under- stood by " the Bush." When you retire to     the Bush," says the- author, "by which is meant themore thickly wooded part of the   country! you are to do so and so; and then followed some excellent directions for hewing and grubbing, abstinence from grog, and the general management of a menage befitting such a location.

POLICE REWARDS-THE CAPTURE OF THE BUSHRANGERS. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 February 1840

POLICE REWARDS - THE CAPTURE OF THE BUSHRANGERS. To the Editor of the South Australian Register. GENTLEMEN - You are perhaps aware that public attention has been greatly excited by some circumstances connected with the recent capture and committal of the three bushrangers charged with several outrages and an attempt at murder, for whose apprehension the   Government offered a reward of £100 each. I understand that those rewards have been al- ready paid to some of the police officers and men. Now, there does appear to have been a departure from all ordinary usage in two es- sential points in such matters. First — Rewards are paid on the conviction of the criminals;     and secondly, they are paid to the parties legally and fairly entitled to receive them. Both these principles have been overlooked. The first needs no proof, the men being yet   untried. On the second point, it is necessary you should be acquainted with a few facts, which I appreh...

PORT LINCOLN [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 February 1840

PORT LINCOLN Editor. WE understand that Dr Harvey has sent to Mr Newman, at Port Adelaide, a block of freestone used for building at Port Lincoln, and plentifully found at that settlement. It is described as being a finely grained oolite, simi- lar to the "Bath freestone," so much used in   England for public buildings. We should strongly recommend our friends to examine this stone for themselves, and if it answers the description given of it, we hope to see some of our principal edifices erected with it. We are assured that the specimen sent was not cut for the purpose, but that it was taken from the scaffold ready cut, when about to be placed upon Dr Harvey's house, now in the course of erection at Port Lincoln. A dinner was to be given on the 27th, at which nearly all the inhabitants will he present, in commemoration of the taking of the Special Survey of that Port. A regatta is also to take place in the noble harbour of Bos- ton Bay. We understand that Dr Harvey has...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1840. THE INSOLVENCY QUESTION ONCE MORE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 March 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 1840. THE INSOLVENCY QUESTION ONCE MORE. If the public interests did not demand that the commercial credit of the local Government should be protected against unwarranted im-   peachment, we should certainly leave the Southern Australian in his present unenviable position, with full permission to play Tom Fool to the end of the chapter. To argue further with so miserable a shuffler would be ridiculous, but we are bound to satisfy the   public of his ignorance, presumption, and evil intentions. Our present observations, there- fore, shall be directed chiefly to his new attempt further to injure the credit and to embarrass the financial proceedings of the Government. In ordinary discussion, the weight that is due to conclusions depends altogether on the soundness of the reasoning or correctness of the facts from which they are deduced. Taking this simple standard as the test applicable to our contemp...

SPECIAL SURVEY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 March 1840

SPECIAL SURVEY SYSTEM. Our attention has been long directed to the Special Surveys— to that portion of the system particularly which is connected with the rights and the interests of the colonists who, in the insufficiency of other means of obtaining land and more immediate location, combined to gether and availed themselves of the highly favoured scheme of special surveys. Before expounding our own views of the matter, we publish the following letter from a party inte- rested ;— To the Editors of the South Australian Register. February 26, 1840. GENTLEMEN—The interest which you take in every subject which relates to the well- doing of the colonists make me hopeful that the important one of Special Surveys will receive your immediate attention, and that by your kind assistance some check may be given     to the unjust and delusive, if not to some ruinour, way of measuring out their pur- chases. We bought our right to select our land, yet from the survey pla...

MISREPRESENTATIONS OF THE SYDNEY PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 7 March 1840

MISREPRESENTATIONS OF THE SYDNEY PRESS. We should be sorry to attribute to our Sydney contemporaries the wish to omit no opportunity of intentionally misrepresenting facts bearing upon the actual condition of this province; but that the strangest fictions do find their way into their journals, it notwithstanding true. The other day one of our friends gravely an- nounced that the differences between the Go- vernor and Resident Commissioner continued; and though he was immediately set right by the only newspaper in Sydney that has watched the progress of this colony, and is thoroughly acquainted with its actual position—the Sydney Monitor—and informed that the Governor   was also the Commissioner, still the mis-state- ment was allowed to circulate without contra- diction in the columns of the journal where it first appeared. In a recent number of the Sydney Herald we find the following equally veracious information :— Bubble Compay.—We have conversed with a gentleman just...

NEW ZEALAND. THE New South Wales Government Gazette of Jan. 24. contains three Proclamations by Sir George Gipps. one of which may he con- sidered as establishing the full sovereignty of the British Crown over New Zealand. We take the following summary of their contents from the Sydney Colonist of Jan. 28 :— From the first of these proclamations we learn —That by letters patent. bearing date the 15th of   June, 1839, her Majesty has been pleased to alter and enlarge the limits of the said territory, which is now to be extended from North Cap in lati- tude 10°27' S. to Wilson's Promontory in     31 ° 12' S., and westard as far as 9° E. longi- tude; including, Eastward, all the islands ad- jacent in the Pacific Ocean, within the aforesaid latitudes. Besides these, the proclamation spe- cially includes among the dependencies of New South Wales the Island of Norfolk, and "any     territory which is or may be acquired in so...

THE CHINA TRADE. (From the Cashton Register, October 28.) we stated last week that arrangements were in progress for the temporary re opening of the trade, and that some Hong merchants had arrived for the purpose of settling with a Committee of British merchants the manner in which such trade is to   be carried on, until the despatches from the Home     Government in answer to Captain Elliott shall have been received. The remainder of the Hong merchants, with the exception of Surqun and Tiack, arrived on Saturday last, and the committee of British merchants on Monday, and it will be seen from the report of the committee and from Captain Elliott's notices, that the arrangements for a temporary trade have been concluded, and that ships without being obliged ot submit to the bond, may discharge their cargoes at Champee and Anung- boy, and lade there in return. We are sware that this arrangement is liable to 62 any objections, but as matters stand,...
