THE threat put Forth in the government epistle has.been carried into effect-Mr Brown is sus pended from the office of Emigration Agent, and Mr Smillie is appointed to fill it, "until Her Majesty's pleasure he known." The alleged reasons for Mr Brown's suspen sion are, that he placed himself in public oppo sition toa public intimation of the Governor, and signed an address to the colonists containing censure on the Governor's proceedings ;-the Avowed object of that measure ts the preserva tion of au ''united administration," We could readily imagine a case in which a public officer, a Member of Council for instance, misfit «* clog the government" with "disputes " and " insubordination/* and engage in '* private cabal or public, opposition against the eovern inent" to an extent which might make his sus pension fruin oiftYe desirable for...

[SUPREME COURT.- Civil Side Thursday. July 11, 1839. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BROWN V. THOMAS A ND STEVENSON. &nbsp; This was an action for libel. Damages laid at one &nbsp; thousand pounds. À special jury being sworn, Mr. Mann opened the case for the plaintiff. The libellous &nbsp; matter on which the plaintiff founded his case was contained in the sixth number of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register, of September 16 1837. There were three counts, charging the defen dants with publishing in the paper above-mentioned, a false, scandalous, and malicious libel. Mr. MANN after going over, the various parts of the charge, proceeded to say that the defendants to the above counts plead not guilty of publishing the libel, and further say that the mlatter was not libellous but perfectly true and justifiable. This puts the onus of poof on the defendants, for had they pleaded what is called the general issue, the plaintiff would then &...

THE FISHERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 24 July 1839
THE FISHERIES. IT gives us great pleasure to learn that the whale fishery established at Encounter Bay by the South Australian Company and Messrs. Hack, has been very successful. The last accounts state, the quantity taken as being nearly 200 tons. The Katherine Steivari Forbes (which may be regarded as "a regular trader' between England and S^uth Australia) has been charter ed, we hear, to take the oil and bone home from Encounter Bay, after making a trip to Hobart Town. She is likely to afford ihe colonists a most desirable opportunity of sending home this year's clip of wool-as after taking in her oil at Encounter Bay, she will fill up with wool at Port Adelaide. Hitherto, it is too true, that the colomy has had to import almost everything-but how could it be otherwise? Our exports have been limited-but their increase is certain. And it ought to be remembered, that within six months after the arrival of the late Governor on these shores, a shipment of bil, upwards of a thousand p...
