TO CORRESPONDENTS, [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
TO CORRESPONDENTS, We should be sorry to commence a newspaper war on the subject "A Private" treats of at so much length, even had his letter smelt less of gunpowder than it did. He may take our word for it, that it is safer to laugh at than to resent such squibs. We cannot discover the object, or understand the allusion in "Friar &nbsp; Tuck's" letter. "S.N.N." is received. &nbsp; &nbsp;
THURSDAY'S GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
VARIETIES. INSTINCT-The following is Lord Brougham's definition:—"It acts without teaching, either from others, that is, instruction, or from the animal itself, that is, experience. That is ge- nerally given as the definition or description of &nbsp; &nbsp; instinct. But we have added another peculiarity &nbsp; which seems also a necessary part of the des- &nbsp; &nbsp; cription—it acts without knowledge or conse- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; quences—it acts blindly—and accomplishes a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; purpose of which the animal is ignorant." &nbsp; :mi us— The most insignificant people are &nbsp; the most apt to [?] at others. They are safe &nbsp; &nbsp; from reprisals, and have no hope of rising in their &nbsp; &nbsp; own esteem but by lowering their neighbours. &nbsp; &nbsp; The severest critics are always those who hav...
AGRICULTURE.—WHEAT SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
AGRICULTURE.—WHEAT SOWING. IN a late number we published an interesting letter from Mr. Cunningham, late Colonist Botanist of New South Wales, to the Editor of the Sydney Monitor, containing the results of his observation and experience on the impor- tant subject of Wheat Growing. Our respected contemporary the Monitor, in a subsequent &nbsp; &nbsp; paper, presented his readers with the following judicious remarks on Mr Cunningham's letter, which remarks, accordin to our mind, being fully as variable as the original communication, we have great pleasure in transplanting into our columns, with an earnest recommenda- tion to their perusal by all persons engaged in agricultural pursuits:— Mr Cunningham very judiciously founds his theory, on circumstances within his own know- &nbsp; ledge. If his account of South American wheat &nbsp; husbandry be true, that is, if it be substantively &nbsp; correct (for writers often put down what they believe to...
RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. I am, &c., OBSERVER. GENTLEMEN—The state of the Resident Ma- &nbsp; gistrate's Court (the criminal side) requires the notice of the authorities, and a sharp look-out on the part of press. I am led to believe that no proper record of the cases brought before the Ma- gistrate, and no correct entry of the sentences &nbsp; imposed, on the fines received, has been made for some months past. These are as essential to &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the forming a right estimate of the working of &nbsp; the Court itself as to the obtaining an accurate &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; view of the moral statistics of the colony; and, &nbsp; though I impute no blame to the Resident Magis- trate, whose zealous discharge of his duties are &nbsp; &nbsp; above all praise, still the matter is of too great &nbsp; moment t...
To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, April 12, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, April 2, 1840. AN ENGLISHMAN. GENTLEMEN—An apparent act of injustice having come to my knowledge, I think it only proper to lay the case before you. I refer to the case of Lubash at the German Village of Hhan- dorf, who has had his licence taken from him &nbsp; a short time ago. Every one who has visited &nbsp; &nbsp; that district knows the necessity and has felt the benefit, of having a house of accommodation &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; for travellers there, Godfried Lubash is a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; German, an honest industrious man, and has &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; lately been induced from the representions of respectable persons, who were obliged to frequent &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; his house, to mak...
CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
CHINA. IN our last we gave a short account of the state of affairs in China, at the date of the latest intelligence received from that quarter. To-day we present our readers with two rather amusing productions of the Commissioner, &nbsp; which have been published in the Canton papers. The first is an edict declaring the English authored, and containing the an- &nbsp; nouncement that nothing can every reinstate them in the favor of the Celestial Empire. The second—a letter from the Commissioner, &nbsp; &c to Her Majesty Queen Victoria—is a curi- osity, and will well repay a perusal, as showing &nbsp; &nbsp; among other things the ridiculous self-conceit &nbsp; of the Chinese nation:— Edict declaring the English Outlawed.—Whereas &nbsp; on the 19th year of Taoukwang, 11th moon and &nbsp; &nbsp; 19th day (13th January) we received an Imperial &nbsp; &nbsp; Edict to the following effect:— &am...
NOTICES OF THE ISLAND OF LOMBOCK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
NOTICES OF THE ISLAND OF LOMBOCK. THE island is called Lombock by Europeans, from a small village on the north-esst coast. By the Bali chiefs in their correspondence, it is called Soli Paron; but, by the natives themselves, in their daily conversation, it is called Sasak, and &nbsp; the people are called the men of Sasuk. About eighty years ago it was conquered by the Balinese, who have since held it in possession. Hence the population is divided into two classes—the Ba- linese and the Sasaks. The former number about 8000, and are the rulers; while the latter number about 170,000 and each man pays two dollars a year to the Balinese rajahs. The Balinese are &nbsp; Boodhists and speak the lnaguage of Bali. The Sasaks are Mahommedans, and have a language of their own. Both languages, however, are often spoken by both people; and on the coasts, and by the chiefs, Malay is somewhat used. The length of the island from north to south is about sixty miles, and its breadth is...

THE GOVERNOR'S FINANCIAL STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
THE GOVERNOR'S FINANCIAL STATEMENT. An attentive consideration of the Minute addressed by the Governor to the Council, published in our last, has fully confirmed the impressions which the first perusal of that document made upon us. It is not merely an ably written and statesmanlike paper, but on all the important points connected with his administration of our colonial affairs, it con- tains a plain, convincing, unanswerable, de- fence of his excellency's policy. What per- haps we like better than all is the manly &nbsp; frankness with which the acknowledged diffi- &nbsp; culties of his position are avowed. There is no attempt to exaggerate these on the one hand, nor to shift from himself an atom of responsibility on the other. His instructions have been disregarded——his authority over- stepped—and while the causes of both are truly stated to be found in the necessities and emergencies with which he was surrounded, his sure justification may rest on the undeni- able...
THE MARRIAGE LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
THE MARRIAGE LAWS. ONE of the subjects which most presses for legislation is the marriage law; and we sincerely hope the Governor's attention will be drawn to the subject, as soon as practicable, after his return. It is almost impossible to describe the anxiety and vexation which numerous parties have suffered by the delay which has already taken place; and what is &nbsp; worse, as affairs now stand, irregular, if not &nbsp; illegal, marriages are of not unfrequent occur- rence. Our attention was drawn only yesterday to the fact, that the Rev. Mr Kavel, the German pastor at Klemzig, had been married &nbsp; by the Rev. Mr Teiklemann, the German missionary to the aborigines. Now Mr Kavel &nbsp; &nbsp; is a naturalized subject of Britain, and bound, of course, by English laws; while Mr Teikle- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; mann, whatever right he may possess in Ger- many to celebrate marriages, unquestionably &nbsp; possess...
To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Sandford, April 11th, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Sandford, April 11th, 1840 . SIR—I have been much gratified the last two weeks by your publishing in the Register several letters from my neighbours on the subject of agriculture. Discussions on such a subject cannot fail to produce lasting benefits to the colony as &nbsp; well as to every individual farmer. My own experience in the colony has been very &nbsp; small—too small, indeed, to merit notice; but as &nbsp; none of the gentlemen whose valuable letters are &nbsp; before me have touched on the article of mangel- wurzel, an article which I deem of great impor- &nbsp; tance to farmers in the immediate vicinity of &nbsp; Adelaide, I take the liberty of stating that I have &nbsp; now in my garden several varieties of it doing well considering the late period at which they were sown, viz., late in October. This root, it is generally considered in England, does not do well transp...
EMIGRATION DEPOT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, 2nd May, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 9 May 1840
EMIGRATION DEPOT. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. &nbsp; Adelaide, 2nd May, 1840. I am, &c. A FRIEND TO IMMIGRATION. GENTLEMEN— One of the most important weekly returns from the Emigration Department is that showing the state of the labour market. Since Mr. Smillie's resignation of the office of Immigration Agent, no returns of the unemployed emigrants have been published. As the neglect may give rise to unfounded rumours &nbsp; &nbsp; concerning the numbers remaining at the Square, otu of work, I beg to ask if you know why the publication of a document so useful here and abroad, is not continued! &nbsp; [We really cannot give anything as a reason beyond our supposition, that the young gentleman who temporally fills the office, is not aware of the very great importance of the return our corres- pondent refers to, and has consequently neglec- ted to furnish it. When His Excellency returns, the omission will probably be brought ...
