The South Australian Register, ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1840. THE QUEEN'S MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

The South Australian Register, ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1840. THE QUEEN'S MARRIAGE. YESTERDAY, at one o'clock, a numerous meeting of the colonists was held at the Court- house, Gilles-arcade, in conformity with a requisition addressed to the Governor, for the purpose of proposing a congratulatory address to her Majesty on her marriage with Prince Albert. His Excellency the Governor presided. In stating the object of the meeting, his Excel- lency observed .—You are aware that the present meeting has been called in consequence of a requisition having been presented to me requesting that I would call a meeting of the colonists for the purpose of congratulating her Majesty on the event, the news of which has reached us within these few days. I am highly gratified with the feeling of loyalty which has been thus evinced—a feeling which I have all along known to exist—a feeling which is not only creditable to the colonists, but which must conduce much towards the advancement of the pro...

EXPLORATORY EXPEDITION TO THE CENTRE OF NEW HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

EXPLORATORY EXPEDITION TO THE CENTRE OF NEW HOLLAND. THE Arrangements for the expedition into the interior undertaken by Mr Eyre having been completed, His Excellency the Governor and Mrs Gawler issued cards to a number of the principal colonists and the personal friends of Mr Eyre, to meet him at Government House on the morning of his departure. On Thurs- day last accordingly (the anniversary of Waterloo, in which His Excellency and the gallant 52nd bore so conspicuous a part*) a very large party of ladies and gentlemen as- sembled. After an elegant drjeuner a la fourchette, His Excellency the Governor rose and spoke nearly as we could collect, as follows :— We are assembled to promote one of the most important undertakings that remain to be accom- plished on the face of the globe—the discovery of the interior of Australia. As Captain Sturt in substance remarked in a recent lecture, of the five great divisions of the earth, Europe is well known; Asia and America have been generally...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. COMMISSION. THE dissolution of the commissioner for the colonisation of South Australia has created as strong a sensation as it has evidently done in the Adelphe Terrace —although the kind of the sensation is undoubtedly very different. There seems to be an almost unani- mous feeling of gladness on the one hand that the government of the province is removed from a body of Commissioners to whose legi- timate duty it never belonged, and placed in         the hands of the responsible minister of the         Crown; and on the other, that the South   Australian principle of colonization—the ap- plication of the land fund to emigration—is   again confirmed, not merely with regard to ourselves, but extended to and established in all the colonial possessions of the empire where waste lands are still unappropriated and unsold. The events whic...

To the Editor of the South Australian Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

To the Editor of the South Australian Register. I am, &c., OBSERVATOR. 18th day, 6th month, 1840. RESPECTED FRIENDS, Among the various insti- tution which tend to promote the social wefare of our country man at house there is one species which from its peculiar depration to a large and increasing body of persons in South Australia, viz. me- chanics and the laboring population in general, would seem to demand a share of attention by the local press, and of those individuals who are     desirous of promoting our permanent prosperity     either in a social or commercial point of view.   I allude to the establishments frequently termed       benefit clubs, but which of late years have, with   greater propriety, been designated "Provident   Societies." As the class of persons for whose immediate benefits such associations are intended are not only incr...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

ENGLISH NEWS. SINCE our last publication we have had another arrived from England, bringing news a week later than those by the Orleana. We are indebted to Captain Arnold of the Charles Kerr, for several late papers and shipping lists, from which we have made copious extracts below. We are also indebted to Mr Simmonds, of the Hants Advertiser, for a large file of English papers, for which we return him many thanks.   MARRIAGE OF HER MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA. The nuptials of Her Majesty and Prince Albert were solemnized with all due splendour on the   10th February. The following is a brief account of the ceremony, taken from the London Pa-     pers:—   At a quarter before twelve the departure from       Buckingham Palace of Prince Albert the Duke       his father, and Prince Ernest his brother, with       ...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

FRANCE. The French ministry has resigned on account of their defeat in the Chamber of Deputies upon the grant to the Duke de Nemoure. Various surmises are afloat as to who will be their suc- cessors. The Due de Broglie, Count Mole, and M. Thiers, are severally mentioned as likely to take the post of chef du cabinet, but nothing conclusive can as yet be stated. The French Ministers, notwithstanding their offered resigna- tion, still hold office ad interim, and, in fact, Louis Phillipe has not accepted their resignation, so that it is doubtful whether they will not eventually resume their places. On the other hand, a report is in circulation on the Bourse that a coalition will be formed between the parties of Count Mole and M. Thiers, the former acting as President of the Council and Minister for Foreign affairs, the latter as Minister of the In- terior. A cabinet composed of such incongruous materials could not, however, carry on the duties of Government for any long duration; the le...

UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

UNITED STATES. The north-cast boundary question is assuming an aspect of serious import, and may, perchance, lead to open hostilities on the borders of the Maine country, unless means are taken to settle this procrastinate dispute. In the British pro- vinces considerable excitement was felt upon the subject, and, owing to some misunderstanding between the British authorities and the Governor of the State of Maine, the former had considered it necessary to station some additional troops on the frontiers; fears were also entertained   that a collision would take place between the   State of Maine and the British. The affair   has been for some time on the tapis in the United States Congress, and the whole of the           correspondence between Mr Fox, the British Minister, and the American Gvoernment, has been laid before the House, and since then pub- lished in the American papers...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

NEW ZEALAND. We have received the second number of the New Zealand Gazette, published at Port Nicholson the first having been published in London. The paper, so far as letter press goes, is better than might have been expected ; but beyond this little can be said in its favor. There is nothing original in it—no attempt at a leader, nor any news whatever regarding the settlement, except the proceedings of a Commit- tee of Colonists who assemble weekly under the designation of the " president and Council of the Colony"/ Within the last few days, however, we have seen numerous letters from persons who have visited or are resident at the settlement; and their accounts are, with very few exceptions, anything but favorable. The following are a few extracts from several of the letters we have seen:— " Our supplies we can only procure by water, No horses ran cross the ranges. The chief shrubs and almost only vegetation are the Phormium Te- nax and Fern, which in some places grows so matted ...

The Justices assembled at any Court of Gene- ral Quarter Sessions subject to the approval of His Excellency the Governor may appoint one or more convenient place or places adjoining some public highway for establishing a public pound and also appoint a person to be the keeper of such pound.

It shall be lawful for the Governor to advance if   required any necessary sum for the erection of one such pound in every district in which Quarter Ses- sions shall be holden and every pound shall be ke...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 20 June 1840

VARIETIES. BAGS OF WIND —We witnessed an interesting experiment this foreman, on hand the revenue cutter Hamilton, Captain Sturgis, which was in-   tended to illustrate the practicability of raising a vessel by means of cylindrical bags placed under her bottom, and filled with atmospheric air. The bags were each of a large size, capable of con- taining 2500 cubic feet of air. They were confined by means of ropes passing under the keel, and   afterwards filled by two forcing pumps propelling   the air through tubes into the cylindrical floats. The bags were made of three parts of stout cotton canvas, made air and water tight by means of India Rubber, and were prepared by Mr Howard, of Hoxbury, under the direction of the inventor,   Mr M'Kean. The cutter was raised considerably by this process, but the floats were made for a   larger vessel, and when inflated, a large portion of them rose above the water. The utility of ...
