OUR FAREWELL WITH MR. G. M. STEPHEN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 11 September 1839

OUR FAREWELL WITH MR. 6. M. STEPHEN. WE this week give a full report of the late action for libel, brought against Mr. R. Thomas by Mr. G. M. Stephen. The trial lasted five days, and during that time excited great interest. The result of this action is of the great est importance to us personally, for it fully establishes the fact that we had the very best grounds for all we have said about Mr. ßtcpbcr» xv.li*ii t ^ i*.>-ttie matter in question. Our proprietor was tried and found guilty of a libel on this gentle« man, and sentenced to a fine of £50, and to enter into heavy recognizances for twelve months, for what turas out to be the truth-and nothing but the truth. It may not be amiss here to mention the motive which induced the penning of the article for which we were punished ; and - perhaps it may astonish some, when we state that one «of our principal reasons was, to save the young man from that ruin be has brought upon himself. We sa«« him elevated on a pinnacle which in hi...

We should be sorry to persevere in error, and therefore we think there is nothing de grading in acknowledging a fault, espe cially when it is remembered that the error was caused by over anxiety to guard the public weal.

THE TEA TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 11 September 1839

THE TEA TRADE.   THE rupture in Canton between the Chinese authorities and the traders, ap- pears, by our latest accounts to be as far from being amicably settled as ever. The following extracts, which we take from late Sydney journals, shew plainly enough that if the tea trade must be continued, it will be necessary to bring John China- man to his senses in rather a rough way. The indignities which the European na- tions have suffered from the authorities of China, for the sake of this enervating drug, have been no less numerous than disgrace- ful ; but we think it is pretty evident that matters are now arrived at that crisis, when it beeomes absolutely necessary on the part of traders to China either to relinquish the trade altogether, or to com- pel the Chinese into reason. TEA .-Capt.Theakership G ilmore,reports seeing a Singapore paper while at Java, from which he gathered the following particulars respecting the Tea Trade :-The Viceroy had demanded of the British ...
