The object is, to induce them to part with their goods at a sacrifi e, in order that these harpies may make a hindsome profit by them. The two distressing instances we hare lately bad, of newly arrived emigrants laying violent bands upon themselves, may clearly be attributed to these mis representations.

Newenham, Esq., ike Sheriff, IN THE CHAIR, It was resolved unanimously, on the motion of J. B. Hack, Esq. seconded by A. H. Davis, Esq., 1. -That while this meeting claims the most ample right of security and protection for life and property in this our adopted country, vre cheerfully and willingly admit the right of the Aborigines to equal protection and the fullest provision for their wants:-that we deeply deplore the murders and outrages recently perpetrated by the Aborigines, both as shaking that feeling of confidence hitherto enjoyed, and as tending to deaden that benevolent intterest in the native population which it has been the object of the colonists generally to foster and maintain. j Resolved, on the motion of D M'Laren, Esq J.P. and seconded by John Hallett, Esq ,J.P. and carried with three dissentients, 2. -That this meeting is ...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1839

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. BY way of Launceston we have received Sydney papers to the 3rd A pr i 1. The utmost distress is felt in that colony from the want of raid. The streams and pools are dried up, and water now is at a high price per bucket. From the ; want of this necessary of life, cattle and sheep are dying in great numbers ; and some of the rivers are so much dried up, that large fish ! are found dead iu great quantities. But in j order to convey to our readers an adequate j idea of the distress prevailing from drought in New South Wales, we copy the following : A number of cattle are daily found drowned in Hunter's River ; these accidents are occasioned by the scarcity of water-the settlers on some parts of the navigable portion of its banks are compelled tq go twenty miles to procure fresh water for the use of tlfeir families.-Australian.

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1839

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. J SIR-I was mach gratified hy reading, a few weeks since, (he well-merited compliment which yon paid, in your editorial capacity, to the industry and civility of the German sealers at Klemzig. In y our enumeration of the good chsracterisics of these Germans, it does not occur MB lue that you made any remark apon'one most edifyingtrait in their character -their «crupolous olwerçaAO^-*of~tbe- Lord's Day. Their self-denying missionary minister divides his time, 1 believe, between ibis and a more distant settlement ot his countrymen. But, whether be be with them, rr not, the Lord's Day is not permi'led in either place, to pass unhallowed. A most pleasing scene was witnessed by myself a few Sundays back ; a group of temporary cabins on the top of the Mount Lofty range of mountains, shewed the spot where some of these pilgrims bad halted for rest, on their way to the Mount Barker district, in which they ar* forming a settlement. The scene was one ...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1839

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. BY the kindness of a friend we have been favoured with the perusal of Cape papers of the 2nd of March, and Price Current of the 1st. There is little general intelligence   interesting to foreign readers contained   in these papers, their columns being taken up with the politics of the place. The barque Trafalgar, from England to Sydney, was wrecked in Table Bay, on the 1st of March. We copy the   following paragraph from the Commercial     Advertiser :— The crew and passengers of the " Trafalgar," wish due exception, were brought safe on shore, at half-   past 9 on Friday evening:. The whole number amoun- ted to about 30 persons, of whom 9 were cabin passengers, and 30 in the second cabin and steerage. The ship struck on the rocks at half-past 11 am Thursday night, and immediately had her masts cut   away ; she was gradually beaten towards the shore,   &...

THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 May 1839

THE BLACKS. THE report which prevailed last week, that   the remains of a white man's body had been   found nearly consumed in the fire of a party of natives in the neighbourhood of Glenelg, turns out to be incorrect. The medical gentleman who examined the bones, which were brought to Adelaide for the purpose, has pronounced them to be those of a native. We believe the natives are accustomed to   burn the bodies of their dead, wholly or in part. We much rejoice at the result of the investigation.     We are also able to contradict the state- ment that a shepherd in the employment of Mr. Bryant had been murdered. Such statements do much mischief, by exciting the public mind without cause. A similar report prevailed a short time since, with reference to a second shepherd in the employment of Osmond Gilles, Esq. We have heard, that on that occasion, a mounted and armed party of young men proceeded to the spot, and finding...
