POSTMASTERSHIP AT THE PORT. To Editors of the Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

POSTMASTERSHIP AT THE PORT. To Editors of the Australian Register. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant. John NEWMAN. Port Adelaide, 3rd June, 1840. Gentlemen-In your last Register I observe you state that I had resigned the office of Post-   master at Port Adelaide, in consequence of a re- presetion made by the Chamber of Commerce to His Excellency the Governor. This is an error. I resigned for the following reasons:—not having time, as heretofore, to devote to the duties   of the office, and having heard it remarked that I kept back Mails to suit my own purposes as a merchant. This of itself would have been a sufficient reason, knowing how untrue it was.

THE HAY TRANSACTION. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, May 19, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

THE HAY TRANSACTION. To the Editors of the South Australian Register. Adelaide, May 29, 1840. GENTLEMEN — Having seen in the last number of your paper a paragraph in which it is stated that I, as Superintendent of Police, formally cer- tified a bill, knowing it at the time to be in- correct, and on which bill I was to obtain the   sum of £172 10s., by means of placing another   name than that of the real creditor on the face of the accounts, I beg that you will do me the favor to insert my explanation, trusting that although some persons may condemn me on the score of imprudence, the criminal intention, which is implied in the paragraph, may be entirely done away with. At the time of my purchasing the hay alluded to in the paragraph, the country had been much burned up, and it was the impression of many parties that hay would be excessively dear. I at that time had determined to speculate in hay, and bought the article in question from Mr Baker, with the intention of st...

THE OPIUM QUESTION. (From the Friend of India, Feb. 26.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

THE OPIUM QUESTION. (From the 'Friend of India,' Feb. 26.) The [Harkara?] is facetions upon the Opium ques- tion, apparenly at our expense. He appers to forget how much of the point of his humour is de- rived from the peculiar mode which he adopts, of   interpreting the opinions of his opponents. We had remarked, that the interests of a third of the family of man were involved in the present expedi- tion to China. He appeals immediately to "the   tribunal of Cocker," and with the aid of that "in- genious author's plain and familiar method of arith- metic, suitable to the meanest understanding," works the following sum in the Rule of Three. If 35,000 chests of Opium be devided among 350,000,000 of people, how much will fall to the share of each one? Answer, one sixth of a grain     a day, which will no more hurt any one, than a dinner on cold beef, and a sallad of lettuce. By this 'rare arithmetic' is the important question whether ...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

INDIA. We have not received our files of Calcutta pa- pers by the Indus, but through the kindness of Capt. Clark, of the Indus, and Messrs John Newman and Co., the consignees of the vessel, we have been favored with a sight of a few,   from which we make the following extracts:—     Sir Gordon Bremer has hoisted his broad pen- nant on board H.M.S. Wellesley, and is to pro- ceed to Trincomalee, where the squadron is to assemble, preparatory to their departure from China.—Madras Courier, Feb. 1.     CHINA EXPEDITION.—We have just heard, says     the Madras Times, that the expedition to be sent to China is to consist of the following troops:—     From Bengal H.M. 21st and 24th and two regiments of native infantry—from Madras, one regiment of Queen's troops, four of native in- fantry, one of artillery, and one of engineers—     from Ceylon, one r...

Present His Excellency, the Governor the Colonial Secretary, and the Surveyor-general. •The Governor laid on the table a plan and   specification for a Gaol as designed by G. S. Kingston, Esq. His Excellency expressed his opinion that the most desirable site for a new Gaol would be on the southern bank of the Torrens, near to the village of Thebarton, but His Excellency would   propose to leave this point, as well as the con- sideration of the several tenders for carrying the work into execution, to a Committee of the Council to consist of the Surveyor-gencral and Assistant Commissioner, who should be requested to report to the Council their opinion. Ordered accordingly.   The Bill for authorising and regulating the impounding of cattle was then read a second time and discussed.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (From the papers received by the Challenger. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (From the papers received by the Challenger.) The Market of Van Diemen's Land presents at this moment a most singular speatacle. There is little scarity of any article, considerable demand but few sales, owing we are advised to the exces- sive prices demanded by the holders. Large quan- tities of goods being almost hourly expected, pur- chasers will not concede to the terms of the Mer-       chants and thereofre no prices can with any safety be quoted. Nominally every thing is unusually high but actually the best judges declare a reduc-   tion may soon be looked for. A large supply of Irish Pork first quality is unsaleable at £6 13. Dried fruits are much in demand, but the pri-c es demanded have prevented sales. Fine Patrr     Rice is source and realises from £32 to £35 sec- ond and more inferior qualities are a mere drug. Expected supplies render an immediate fall in this  ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

PORT PHILLIP. The Glen Huntley, Buchannan, with government emigrants, from Greenock and Oban, Scotland, arrived on Friday last, and has been placed in quarantine in consequence of the existence of disease among the emigrants. It seems that at the outset of the voyage small-pox broke out among the children, and the vessel, in conse- quence put back to port, where she was detained a month. On the outward passage a fever, said to be of a bilious nature, made its appearance among the emigrants and carried off ten adults. There were no deaths for ten days previous to   the vessel arriving in port, but there are still   a considerable number of cases of sickness. A   quarantine station has been formed on the beach   adjoining the Little Red Bluff, about four miles from Melbourne, and a guard of soldiers has been     sent down to prevent communication between the station and the town.— Port Phillip Herald &am...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

VARIETIES. CONSUMPTION—The following is said to be an effectual remedy, and will in time, completely eradicate the disorder: —Live temperately—avoid spiritons liquors—wear flannel next the skin— and take, every morning, half a pint of new milk, mixed with a wine glass full of the expressed juice of green horehound. One who has tried it says—" Four weeks' use of the horehound and   milk relieved the pains of my breast, and enabled me to breathe deep, long, and free—strengthened and harmonised my voice, and resotred me to a better state of health than I had enjoyed for years." YANKEE ADVERTISING.— Most Englishmen are   amused with the specimens of American adver- tising which occasionally come under their eye. The following is not amiss:—"Anthony Mac-   donald teaches boys and girls their grammar tongue; also geography, terrestrial and celestial. Old hats made as good as new." There can be no question that if Anthony is able to perform all that h...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 June 1840

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN POLICE FORCE. We understand that a change of system, as respects the government of the police force, is contemplated. It is considered desirable that the office of Superintendant should be abolished; that the mounted and foot police should be regarded as distinct forces ; and each of them entrusted to the command of a separate Inspec- tor. That one permanent Commissioner of Police should be appointed to exercise a general control over the whole force. To him both the inspectors are to be required to report ; and   through him they will recieve, when necessary, the instructions and commands of the Governor. The Commissioner, however, will not be an officer of the police force. The Board of Police Commissioners will be   dissolved. It is expected that Mr Tolmer, the present sub-Inspector of mounted police, will be promoted to the rank of Inspector, and appointed to the command of the mounted and   rural police. Inspector Stuart w...
