LATEST PROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 April 1840

LATEST FROM INDIA. Murray's Hobart Town Review states that Cal- cutta journals of the first week in January had been received. There is little fresh intelligence. The army of the Indus was still under Sir John Keane. It had reached a station called Zullala- [?] on the advance upon Herat, and had under- [?] much distress. The Hurkaru of the 3rd   January, has intelligence from Cabool, of the 23rd   November. Both colums of the army, the one under Sir John Keane, and the other under Gene- ral Thackwell, had experienced intense cold in those elevated regions, and much want of pro- visions, in consequence of which their camels   had died by hundreds," and their heavy baggage   had been lost. Two hundred camels of Tack- well,s colums had died in one day! The roads     were passable only by severe labor. the ther- mometer was usually in the morning sunder 50°,   the elevation being 8000 feet. Dost M...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 April 1840

NEW ZEALAND. PORT NICHOLSON, FEB. 19TH.—The Aurora, Oriental and Duke of Roxburgh, had arrived at Port Nicholson with emigrants previous in the sailing of the schooner Sally Ann. The captain of the Duke of Roxburbh unfortunately fell over-   board off Stephen's Island, and was drowned. The chief officer, (Mr Leslie, brother to Captain Leslie, of the schooner Falcon,) took charge, and brought the vessel into Port Nicholson. The     emigrants appear to be a very industrious class of people, and are principally from the country parts of England, they were busily employed erecting dwellings for themselves, and with the assistance of the natives, who were doing all that     [?] in their power, were going on rapidly. Cap- tain Hobson not having arrived, the settlers were greatly at a stand still, being unable to get pos- session of their lands. Some disputes have arisen as to the title of some of the land near Port Ni- chols...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 April 1840

CHINA. The shipping report of yesterday announced the arrival of the Rustomjee Cowasjee, from Hong Kong, the 25th ult., by which we have received the Canton Press of the 16th, and Register of 19th November. Before her departure, all the British shipping had removed from Hong Kong to Tungkoo Bay, in pursuance of the superintendent's requi- sition; but the evacuation of Hong Kong harbour had not taken place before the Chinese had opened fire upon the ships from their batteries on shore, and it seems taken for granted that they will regard the withdrawal of the fleet as an acknow- ledgement of the danger to which it stood exposed from the destructive fire of their fortifications, although not a hull, mast, or yard, was touched by their shot! Private advices state that all was quiet when the Rustomjee Cowasjee left, and that another vessel, the Royal Saxon, had followed the example of the Thomas Coutts, and gone up to   Whampoa. This at least proves that no danger was antic...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. Trivial fond Records. —SHAKESPERE. TACITURNITY OF GENIUS. — In conversation Dante was taciturn or satirical; Butler was silent or caustic; Gray and Alfieri seldom talked or smiled; Descartes, whose avocations formed him for meditation and solitude, was silent; Rosseau was remarkably trite in conversation— not a word of fancy or eloquence warmed him; Milton was unsocial, and even irritable when much pressed by the talk of others ; Addi- son and Motiere were only observers in society, and Dryden has very honestly told us;—"My conversation is dull and slow, my humour satur- nine and rescued; in short, I am none of those who endeavour to break jests in company, or to make repartees." Metemphychosis.—Some one speaking in com - pany of the Metemphychosis, meaning to be very witty, said that he remembered that he had been the golden calf; when a lady quietly remarked— " You have lost nothing but the gilding then." Taking Snuff.—A person observed to his fr...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1840. ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1840. ENGLISH NEWS. By the Morley we have London papers to the middle of December, and through the kindness of a passenger we have a Plymouth paper so late as the 26th of that month. The chief subject of talk in London was the marriage of Queen Victoria, which, as will be seen by the following extract from the London Gazette, has at last been announced by her Majesty. The time was not fixed, but April or May was spoken of as the time when the ceremony was likely to take place.— At the Court of Buckingham Palace, the 23d November, 1839. Her Majesty being this day present in Council, was pleased to make the fol-   lowing declaration, viz.—" I have caused you to be summoned at the present time in order that I may acquaint you with my resolution in a matter   which deeply concerns the welfare of my people   and the happiness of my future life. It is my   intention to ally mys...

SPECIAL SURVEYS.-PUBLIC ROADS. EXPENCE OF THE SURVEY DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

SPECIAL SURVEYS.—PUBLIC ROADS. EXPENCE OF THE SURVEY DE- PARTMENT. It is with no intention of submitting to minute criticism the Reply of the Resident Commis- sioner to the Memorial addressed to His Excellency by the proprietors of Special Surveys that we again advert to the subject. On the contrary, though we differ with that officer on many points connected with the bearing, interpretation, and applicability of the regulation under which these surveys are secured to the public, we arrive so very nearly at the same conclusion, that it is not worth while to bring forward the views which lead us to that satisfactory result. All parties are now contented, and we shall not disturb their unanimity. One or two points, however, of some general interest require to be noticed. The Resident Commissioner remarks " that there is reason to think that it will be a subject of regret in the colony that the power of reserving public communications was not extended to later periods." It is probable ...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

AMERICA. THE accounts from America were to the 19th November. The country was said to be in a strange and anomalous condition. A New York paper of the 16th November says:— " Polities, trade, commerce, currency, rum, and religion, are all well mixed and blended together. Not only are the various sections of the union mixed up in this way, but our affairs, particularly the commercial, are as   deeply intertwined with those of England and France. Every fresh steamer is looked for with deep anxiety to know if the Bank of England has suspended—if the rate of interest is reduced—if the price of cotton has been raised—if Victoria is in good health and got married— if Louis Phillipe is still on his throne. Steam navigation has made Western   Europe and Eastern America one single un- divided civilized country, influenced by the     like casues and the same feelings." The same paper says that the United Stales Bank will not resume specie pay...

THE ACTS OF COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

THE ACTS OF COUNCIL. "SIMPLEX" makes a re-appearance in the Southern Australian on Thursday. He asks whether the Acts always, unless the time be otherwise stated, come into operation the instant they are passed?" In reply to this we     may inform him that Acts generally declare "that from and after the passing of this Act" it shall be lawful to do so and so. In other cases a certain day is fixed on which the Act shall come in force. In the case of the Post Office and Whale Fisheries Acts, the two which were referred to formerly, and which we suppose he alludes to now, both came in force imme- diately after passing the Council. " Simplex" again says "he should like to know how the bills which come under the consideration of the Council are published," as we formerly stated they were? In answer we beg to inform him that they are, while under the consideration of the Council, pub- lished in the Gazette and when passed, are printed and published separately, an...

THE NATIVES-SUGGESTIONS OF CAPTAIN GREY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

THE NATIVES-SUGGESTIONS OF CAPTAIN GREY. WE submit the following interesting and im-   portant paper, with which we have been honored by His Excellency the Governor, to to the perusal of our readers. With our known opinion of the impracticability of the Natives of South Australia being civilized, we must at the same time acknowledge that Captain Grey's suggestions contain much more feasibility than any thing of the sort that has yet emanated either from the Societies at home or from the " Protectors" on the spot. Whether they may be adopted to the full extent or not, they can- t beno otherwise than practically useful: — SUGGESTIONS with reference to the practica- bility of improving the moral and social condition of the Aboriginal Inhabitants of Australia. By Captain George Grey, 83rd Regiment. The whole of this report has been drawn up upon the supposition that the Aboriginal inhabi- tants of Australia are naturally perfectly capable of being civilised—yet if it is tru...

AGRICULTURE. To the Editor of the Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

AGRICULTURE. To the Editor of the Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. Your obedient servant. P. CUNNINGHAM. SIR—When lately in Chili, I happened to ex- press my astonishment to some intelligent English residents, at the pertinacity with which the Span-   ish population every-where adhered to the use of their wretched plough, which merely stirred the soil without turning it over ; through which the same stratum of soil was always retained at the surface, whereas, by using the English plough, the old stratum would be yearly turned down and a fresh stratum turned up, thereby receiving a yearly supply of fresh food for the plants, instead of obliging them to put up witht eh scanty allow- ance which one stratum only could be expected to afford. To this they replied, that the English plough had been tried in Chili both by natives and foreigners, and had been invariably given up after a few years' practice, in consequence of finding, that a partial or total failure of cr...

FACTS, FANCILS, AND RECOLLECTION. Trivial fund Record.-SHAKESPERE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 18 April 1840

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTION. Trivial fond Records.-SHAKESPERE. BANKING IN FORMER DAYS- A banker in early limps pursued a very different trade from that which occupies the attention of the opulent and influential class so called at the present day. It is well known that the latter derive their profits from the employment of fluctuating sums of money, deposited in their hands for convenience and safety by the public, and for the security of which the respectability of the banker is a suffi- cient guarantee. But this is a refinement of com- paratively recent introduction, with which our forefathers were wholly unacquainted. As late as the time of Swift, bankers gave and took a bond on receiving and lending money, and made their profit by obtaining a higher rate of interest, or usury as it was called, on the latter operation than they allowed on the former. Ten or twelve per cent. was the cus- tomary rate of interest during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, at which period—we mean no d...
