TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
TO CORRESPONDENTS. We think it an act of justice to Mr John Allan, Merchant, whose name appeared in our last, in con- nection with the circumstances which led to the dis- missal of Mr. INMAN, to state that we have received a communication which induces us to believe that on Mr Allan's part a satisfactory explanation can be offered. We refrain from publishing it till next week, solely &nbsp; because the other documents to which reference is made are not yet obtained. In the meantime public opinion on the case may properly be suspended. We are aware of the fact mention by "an old officer" but the publication of the letter referred to is considered &nbsp; inexpedient—for the present at least L's letter is al- together inadmissable. We regret that the late hour at which we received a communication from Mr INMAN precludes its pub- &nbsp; lication till our next.

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
CHINA. PAPERS received this morning supply us with the following additional particulars regarding the state of affairs in China :— Accounts from Canton state that the local au- thorities there have received imperial orders to the effect that they may, without again referring for instructions to Peking, exclude all foreign trade with that nation soever, if they are of opinion that without the total exclusion of all strangers the Opium-trade cannot be suppressed. We think it not unlikely that Lin, who is fond of strongmeas- ures, will make use of this permission, and not &nbsp; &nbsp; only drive away from China all foreigners, but also extinguish the trade carried on in native junks from this province and from Pnlikicu toll"-' Ar&lt;hipila;o.

OFFICIAL CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
OFFICIAL CHANGES. MR. W. A. Poulden, the Clerk of the Peace and Clerk in the Resident Magistrate's Court, (Criminal side) was suspended from office on Wednesday, in consequence of certain imputed defalcations. It was reported yesterday that Mr Poulden has since been dismissed. It is rumoured that Captain C. Berkeley is to succeed Mr Inman, as Superintendent of Police. We are informed that in consequence of a representation made to His Excellency by the &nbsp; Chamber of Commerce, Mr John Newman, &nbsp; Post-master at Port Adelaide, who is also a merchant, has resigned the office, and that Mr Anthony is to be appointed. We think this appointment will give general satisfaction.

EXPLORATORY EXPEDITION TO THE NORTHWARD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
EXPLORATORY EXPEDITION TO THE NORTHWARD. THE time that must clapse during the neces- sary communication between this and the Government of Western Australia regarding the exploration of an overland route to the latter colony, has inevitably created a tem- porary suspension in the preparatory arrange- ments for that expedition. But the spirit of enterprize is unchecked and seeks an outlet in another and, we should say from the recent discoveries by H.M.S. beagle, of large rivers running from the southward, in a more promising and important direction. Our readers may remember that Mr Eyre on his return from Point Bell to Mount Arden saw at a considerable distance a bright gleam of water to the north, which may perhaps prove the commencement of a fine country and a water communication northward. However this may be, it is certain of the greatest possible conseqnence to ascertain the character and capabilities of the northern portions of the province. We are glad to say that Mr Eyre, to...

BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. The half-yearly returns of the weekly trans- actions of this bank, from the 15th October to the 15th April, both inclusive, are published in Thursday's Gazette. The increase from the last similar return is not only a proof of the flourishing state of this establishment, but con- tains positive evidence of the prosperous and progressive condition of the colony. The fol- lowing are the returns for the half-year end- &nbsp; ing 14th October, 1839, and the half-year ending 13th April, 1840:— &nbsp; jr t: c ft J: z* c c c H e? t; 4- 1 -I 7. ••I ft § J c £ ! c ; g;; ?': -ss -• =>■ — p > cr v> K V5 3) o 5' i a. c E X Hi " 5. 5" 5 5. a • ? 5' = ii c • '• S : : : F • : : pi : . • t« llsr «==! «r — ? -: x r.

POUT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
PORT PHILLIP. WE perceive that the Port Phillip settlers are in great, and so far as we can see just, indig- nation at the proposal to pay the expence of establishing the colony of New Zealand out of their emigration fund. It is, however, merely the consequence of Port Phillip being a joint in the tail of New South Wales and one of its pe- nal dependencies that so serious an injury to its settlers is inflicted. Till Australia Felix be placed with regard to its emigration fund on an equality with South Australia, it can never expect to enjoy that measure of success which the enterprise of its settlers deserve. Tlie following is the extract to which we refer: Land Sale—The sale of Government Sections took place at Mr Brodie's Auction Mart, in Collins street, on Wednesday last. It will be seen from &nbsp; the result which we have given below, that a &nbsp; great falling off has taken place in the prices &nbsp; realised at this and the previous Government &am...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATESCOURT. (From the Chronicle .) From the 12th to the 26th ult., the following cases have come before the Resident Magis- &nbsp; trates:— &nbsp; &nbsp; A. Dignum was conviced at the instance of John Lush, of injuring the doors of the prose- cutor's house. Find 10s. and costs. &nbsp; E. Halse was charged by Mr Charles Beck with stealing various small sums of money.— Committed. William Rowlands and George Hall were &nbsp; charged by Mr Allen, of the Southern Cross, with breaking into some of the bed rooms of the &nbsp; establishment, and stealing various articles.— Committed. Charles Staples add Mathhew Gardner were committed on a charge of stealing a quanti- ty of hams, candles, &c. at Port Adelaide. James Patten was committed at the instance &nbsp; of Miss Allen, of Allen's Family Hotel, on a charge of stealing a part of a canvas tent. John Kelly was committed on a charge of stealing four bars of soap f...
VARIETIES [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
VARIETIES Youth and Age —The man knows more, than the youth-he has more facts in his memory; but has he more aptitude to learn, more capacity for reasoning? No: it is at the commencement of youth, at the ago of desires and passions, that our ideas shoot forth, (if I may so say,) and flourish with the greatest vigour. It is with the spring of life as with the spring of the year. The sap then mounts vigorously into the trees, spreads itself through their branches, is diffused among the twigs, shades them with leaves, adorns them with blossoms, and sets their fruits. It is in the youth of man, in like manner, that those sublime thoughts are set which are one day to render him renowned—Helvetius on Man. &nbsp; &nbsp; Origin of the English Languange. —From the Anglo-Saxons we derive the names of the most ancient officers amongst us, of the greater part of the divisions of the kingdoms, and of almost all our towns and villages. From them also we derive our language; of whi...
MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BILL WE have this day the pleasure of presenting to our renders the bill for the establishment of a MUNICIPAL CORPORATION for the City of Adelaide, as submitted by His Excellency to the Council on the 19th inst. A perusal of this important measure will, we think, satisfy every one, that it is based on the most liberal principles, and that with cer- tain modifications, it will prove generally acceptable to the inhabitants. Our own con- viction is, after the most careful consideration which the few hours it has been before us has permitted, that it is exceedingly distinct in its enactments, and that in its details it will be found to be of easy practical working. The manner, particularly, in which a novel feature in modern legislation, the giring a propor- tionate right of representation to minorities— &nbsp; has been arranged, is exceedingly happy. We think we may usefully devote a few lines to an examination of the mode in which this impor- tant princip...
"LIES" BY THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
"LIES" BY THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. WE have never been insensible to the benefits resulting from fair, frank, right-principled op- position; and we should be the last to quarrel with our contemporaries because their views of the wisdom or utility of the measures of our colonial government differed from those which we might, entertain. But, in the very worst periods of political discord it has never &nbsp; eventually proved either a respectable or a suc- cessful course to base the arguments against the conduct of the Executive either on dis- torted facts or upon absolute fictions. Of the truth of this assertion no one has reason to bear more ample testimony than the Southern Australian; and it is really with a feeling &nbsp; much more of pity than of anger that our duty compels us to notice one flagrant instance more of this unhappy quality, and to demon- strate, by facts, how slight a regard our con- temporary has for correctness in the statements he is pleased to put...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND FICTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND FICTIONS. We have noticed that some of the Van Die- men's Land journals have of late given en- couragement to the system of misrepresenta- tion connected with South Australia, which is certainly in no shape warranted by the facts, and which we are rather surprised to have met in quarters where pretensions to superior respectability are occasionally set forth. The Hobart Town Advertiser not very long ago announced on the authority of "letters" re- ceived, — 1st. That the greatest distress pre- vailed among the labouring emigrants in South Australia; and 2nd. That they were flocking by cores to the beach entreating the masters of vessels to give them a passage to Van Diemen's Land. Here the grossness of these fictions create amusement —in spite of the evidently mischie- vous intention of their authors and circulators. Considering, however, that elsewhere their falsehood might be less palpable, we submit &nbsp; the following facts to our friendly contempo- rar...
PORT LINCOLN. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840
PORT LINCOLN. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) BY the Alice we have letters, written a few days after His Excellency's departure from Port Lincoln, which supply us with the follow- ing news from that important settlement:— His Excellency the Governor and suite em- barked on board the Porter at twelve o'clock on Monday, the 11th inst., under a salute of seventen guns from Dr Harvey's battery, a mark of respect his Excellency seemed highly gratified with. All the respectable inhabitants of Port Lincoln as- sembled to witness his departure, and three hearty cheers were given upon his leaving the shore. This visit of his Excellency has put all parties here in high spirits, particularly as his Excellency has taken much pains to satisfy him- self as to the real state of our interior. On the 12th May, the schooner Abeona, Capt. Hawson, sailed from Por tLincoln for Hobart Town, leaving behind Dr Watkins, a gentleman who came round in the Abeona from Adelaide intending to go on to Sydney, to jo...
