GEOLOGY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the South Australian Register Menge's Yoland, May 12, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840

GEOLOGY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the South Australian Register, Menge's Yoland, May 12, 1840. I remain, yours &Cc., John MENGE. GENTLEMEN—My geological ramblings among the hills, in the northern parts of this Province, have been for some time past interrupted by gardening, building houses, &c., but having found, by my own discoveries, that my anticipations re- garding the treasures contained in the bowels of   the earth in South Australia have been fully realized, I am now edited to continue my ex- ploring journeys with more energy than before. I have found, not merely a considerable number of veins among the slaty rocks filled up with a great variety of opal, chalcedony, cornelian, says, jasper, and in general the finest stones for polish- ing and engraving; but I have found some of the quartsy veins stocked with crystals and precious stones. You may now assure our colonists they   besides the stores of metals in iron, copper, t...

To the Editors of the South Australian Register Adelaide, May 28, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840

To the Editors of the South Australian Register Adelaide, May 28, 1840. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant. WILLIAM HOWARD. GENTLEMEN—It has struck me forcibly that at least a portion of the money which is collecting for the purpose of ensuring a supply of flour to the colonists at a reasonable rate, might be re- tained and expended in the colony with much advantage. I believe there can be found a number of per- sons who will be willing to contract to supply wheat the produce of the ensuing harvest, at a   price fully as low as that for which it can be brought to the colony. If the means of grinding this into flour do not exist before next harvest, it can be done by sending it to Van Diemen's Land. My plan is to advance out of the flour fund to any owner of land who may be willing to contract to supply wheat, a sum of money upon the deposit of his deeds, which deeds should be held until the completion of his contract. I am certain much more land would be brough...

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 30 May 1840

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. MONDAY last. Her Majesty's birthday was celebrated with every demonstration of loyally and respect. According to the programme given in last week's Register the horse and foot police mustered in full uniform, at the Sappers and Miners Barracks, at eleven o'clock, and shortly afterwards the Volunteer Cavalry recently formed, assembled in the same neighbourhood under the command of Captain O'Halloran. His Excellency soon afterwards arrived, and after inspection, ex- pressed his high approbation of the soldierlike appearance of the Cavalry, and of the preci- sion with which the mounted police went through various exercises. At one one o'clock a royal salute of twenty-one guns was fired by the Sappers and Miners from the artillery in front of their barracks, which was responded to by the vessels in the harbour and at Glenelg.   At one o'clock, His Excellency held a levee, and Mrs. Gawler received the ladies of Ade- laide; among the company we observed—...

FRANCE. (From the same.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

FRANCE. ( From the same.) "Letters from Constantinople, in the Augsburg Gazatte, throw upon Admiral Lahunde the false imputation of having favoured and e[?]mmaged the defection of the Capitan Pacha. We are authorised to declare that nothing can be more false. Admiral Lalandc, surprised, it is true, by the news oi'Sullan Msiliiiiund's death, and of the jiiojeets which the Capitan Pacha attributed to the Gram) Vizier, Khosrow, did not tiiink it hit duty to pr«veut the Turkish fleet from quitting the Dardanelles; but \if rppresenied to the Capi tnn Pni ha, that in proeepilin^ to Canilia, as he aunrtmccd it to be bis intention, he would appear to bo giving up tin- ?l<'et to Mehemn ; and be obtained from him tho prorniKc to co and wait for the course of events nt Htiodes.

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1840 THE EXPEDITIGN TO THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1840 THE EXPEDITION TO THE NORTH. It will be seen by the list of subscriptions in another column that colonists are providing liberally for the outfit of the expedition to the northward. We rejoice to state that Mr. Eyre   has made his arrangements to set out in about ten days from this time. His Excellency the     Governor fully participates in the interest taken by the public, and has given directions for the               government cutter, the Waterwitch, to pro-     ceed to the head of Spencer's Gulf to form a depot of provisions for the use of Mr Eyre and his party. The few additional hundreds that are still wanting to complete the outfit of the expedition will, we are confident, be ob- tained in the course of today and Monday.

SPAIN. (From the Morning Chronicle, January 2nd.)

In Flinders' Chart there is a rock marked between William's and Smith's Island, said to be breaking at times. I had a most favorable opportunity, and took every pains to discover it, but saw nothing of the kind. The master of a French whaler lying in Memory Cove, who was fishing there the last season, said he had been through in the direction, and did not believe there was any rock between the above mentioned islands.

THE MUNICIPAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

THE MUNICIPAL BILL. THE proposed bill for the constituion of a Municipal Government for Adelaide, has, it may naturally be supposed, created not a little interest and discussion among the inhabitants. In its provisions generally the measure has been very unanimously approved of, while sundry objections have been made to its details, and to particular points. The power reserved to the Governor, especially, of annulling by his veto the bye laws of the corporation, has been strongly objected to. The Chronicle of Wed- nesday last, thus speaks :— " It may be worthy of consideration how far   a veto could be as fairly or safely exercised—or whether indeed, with the power intact in the Legislative Council to regulate the general law, the reservation of power to the Governor to put himself more directly and immediately in oppo- sition to the corporate authorities, is not of doubt   ful utility, and might pave the way to much dissension. It has been said that the by...

"SECRET AND IRRESPONSIRLE. LEGISLATION." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

"SECRET AND IRRESPONSIBLE LEGISLATION." Among the many valuable qualities which the Southern Australian enjoys without a rival is   that of bold and reckless assertion. Truth is an abomination unto him — but in a fib he delights. It is never of the slightest conse- quence to his argument that it is totally un-   supported by facts - nay, it seems to be essential to the pith of his observations that   they should be composed exclusively of igno-   rance and malice. A few days ago we were favored with a striking exemplification of his system.   It was necessary, for some undefined and   inexplicable purpose, to abuse the Governor,       and, if possible, to shake the faith of the colonists in his Excellency's administration         They were, therefore, gravely informed that it was notoriously the Governor's fixed   principle to legislate without first subm...
