MANAGEMENT OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

MANAGEMENT OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. IN the Chronile of Wednesday last the fol- lowing paragraph appeared:— "The Managership of the South Australian Company has been offered to the hon. Captain Sturt; but from causes with which we are   unacquainted the offer has not been accepted. As the above statement might convey an erroneous impression, we think it right to state that the negotiation with Captain Sturt has been suspended for the present, but whether temporarily only, or finally, we cannot say. We have reason to believe that the result has been disappointment to all the parties con-   cerned, but has arisen from the difficulty of satisfactorily adjusting some of the preliminary details.

MOORGATE STREET BANK AGAIN. I am, Dear Sir, Yours very truly, Charles Boucher, Esq. FRED BOUCHER. I am, my dear Charles, Yours affectionately, FRED BOUCHER, Managing Director. In our last appeared the following significant advertisement from Mr Gouger, the Colonial Secretary:— BRITISH AND AUSTRALASIAN BANK.—Persons having claims upon or business with this insti- tution are hereby informed that the name of Mr ROBERT GOUGER has been used in England, by the Directors and Secretary, without his know- ledge of consent. All papers, therefore, which may be received by Mr Gouger will be sent to Messrs SMART & WILSON, Solicitors, Stephens- place, to whom applications may be addressed. Adelaide, 17th June, 1840.

THE "CRISIS OF WATERLOO." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

THE "CRISIS OF WATERLOO." At the present time—the anniversary of "Waterloo" having just passed—the fol- lowing account of some of the most important events in the action may be interesting. It was written a few years since, by an eye- witness of course—an officer of the 52nd re- giment—who subsequently rose to the command of that celebrated corps, and who now, we   are proud to know, has brought the same coolness and judgment which contributed to the victory of Waterloo to direct the energies of South Australia. The statements in this clear and ably written narration became the subject of warm and lengthy controversy in the pages of the United Service Journal, and other periodical publications. The result was, that the great leading fact— the mode in which the Imperial Guard was defeated—was com- pletely established. On the secondary points of such a moment of fatigue and confusion as the close of a great general action, eye- witnesses might be expected to differ, but e...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

NEW ZEALAND. THE excitement that, in the first instance, was awakened with regard to the settlement of New Zealand, has long since subsided and the bitter disappointment of the few worthless characters who swindled the Commissioners out of their passage-money to South Australia, and then   left the colony to be severely punished for doing so in New Zealand, has put all further emigra-   tion from this Province out of the question. We are, nevertheless, glad to have information to place before the public regarding the state   of the new settlement, which can be relied on for correctness. The following letter addressed     to a friend in Adelaide, by a gentleman who was for some time port agent for the Coloniza- tion Commissioners and the South Australian Company, and who is now endeavouring to settle at Port Nicholson, is of the description we allude to. Its statement may be taken as the genuine sentiments of the writer...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

CHINA. The arrival of the Gunga puts us in possession of news from China to the beginning of April. We subjoin several extracts, and the latest pro- clamation which has been issued at Canton, which is a curiosity of its kind. (From the Singapore Free Press, April 16).   The arrival of the Charles Forbed from Macao,   the 22nd ultimo, has been reported, and we have received by her the Canton Press of the 21st March, and private advices of the same date, but neither contain intelligence of any great im- portance—unless it be an edict authorising the re-opening the Portuguese trade of Macao. In this edict the Chinese authorities are considerate enough to assume that the English had been driven forth from Macao, albeit they are therein very snugly located— and where, to all appearance, they will be allowed to remain unmolested. In   a private letter, however, we find the following view taken of the position of foreigners at Macao in the alternative...

INDIA. (From Wedesday's Clircnicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

INDIA. (From Wedensday's Chronicle.) THE schooner Harlequin, arrived at Singapore from Calcutta, on the 11th April, having left on the 19th March. A great degree of excitement existed in the Indian metropolis, regarding a steam communica- tion from Britain, by way of the Cape. Public meetings had been held on the subject, the result of which was the formation of a committee to take into consideration the details of a scheme proposed by a Mr Curtis, under the title of "The   East India Steam Navigation Company," and to report thereon at another meeting, which was to be held the day after the schooner left. The following extract regarding the "Assam     Tea Company" from the Singapore Free Press, is important, as showing the progress this Company is making, and the results which will probably ensue from its labors :— "We find the last half-yearly report of the Assam Tea Company, in the Calcutta papers, bringing down the history of its operations ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The Council met for the first time on Thurs- day, May 28. The Governor briefly addressed the Council, congratulating them on the improved and im- proving state of the colony, and its resources, and the arrival of 10,000 emigrants in the last year. He adverted briefly to some of the bills intended to be presented this session and explained the necessity for their adoption. He strongly re- commended the formation of Municipal Cor-   porations in various parts of the colony, to whom would be delegated the power of making and enforcing assessments for local purposes, as practised in England. His Excellency the laid on the table, the fol- lowing bills, viz.—   1st. For continuation of the present Jury system, which expires on the 13th June next.

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

ENGLISH NEWS. EMIGRATION FROM SCOTLAND.— Vigorous measures are now in progress for the promotion of Emigration from the Highlands and islands of Scotland. The Duke of Argyle, Lord McDonald, Sir Donald Campbell, and many other gentlemen of large property and interest had a meeting with Lord John Russell at the Colonial Office on Tues- day on the subject.— South Australian Record.

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF LORDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF LORDS. CHINA.—The Duke of Buckingham begged to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any official information had been received from China, corroborative of the accounts which had appeared in the public prints.—The Earl of Minto said,   that no official intelligence had been received, but he had reason to believe that the accounts which have reached this country were substantially   correct.—The Duke of Buckingham wished to   know whether it was true that Admiral Eliott had been sent from the Cape to China.—The Earl of   Minto said that it was so. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Friday, Feb. 14.—SOUTH AUSTRALIA.—Lord Elliot moved an address for returns of the quantity of land in South Australia sold by the Coloniza- tion Commissioners since the 5th of May, 1835.— Amount of money paid for the same in London, and the names of the purchasers:—Amount of money paid to agents in England and Scotland, as commi...

SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

SPAIN. The latest news from Spain, extending- to the 25th February, represent the state of that country as anything but tranquil, notwith- standing the seeming quietness which for some time existed. A riot, headed by the ultra-liberal party, occurred in Madrid on the 23rd February, which reached such a height   that Government declared the capital in a state of siege. From the papers we have before us (not being a regular file) we cannot ascertain the reason of the riot ; but the following ex- tracts from the Morning Herald's correspon- dent will show the state of things:— Madrid, Feb. 25, 1840. The state of siege is declared. The capital at this moment presents the most warlike aspect. The troops have passed the night under arms; a   picquet of cavalry is in front of the palace, and a battalion of the Reyna Gobernadora is posted in the theatre opposite the palace. The troops are well disposed, and will not flinch from executing the orders of the public aut...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

VARIETIES. CORIOUS PHENOMENON.—A MIRAGE—In Bos- ton, on Tuesday afternoon, that very singular phenomenon called a milage, was seen in the harbour. We do not recollect of hearing, but twice before, of the appearance of this curious sight in this country. The pilgrims saw it at Plymouth. They were expecting some supplies from England, and the vessels, three in number with them, were at sea a long time, when one day they were all distinctly seen inverted in the hori- zon by several of the forefathers. They never   arrived, however and probably foundered at sea. Last winter a mirage was seen on the North River. Persons alone, and out of sight on Newburgh, saw a precise image of that place, inverted, and hang- ing between heaven and earth like Mahomet's   coffin. It is of more frequent occurrence in Arabia and Italy, than in any other country. In Boston, vessels of which the sails only could be seen, were respresented by a distinct image in- verted above the hor...

LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S INSTRUCTIONS TO THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S INSTRUC- TIONS TO THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. THE Gazette of Thursday contains this im- portant document at length. We are able to-day only to give those portions of it which are most likely directly to interest the settlers of South Australia: "Downing-street, Jan. 14, 1840.   "I herewith transmit to you a Commission,   under the Royal Sign Manual, constituting you to be commissioners for the sale of the waste lands of the Crown throughout the British colonies, and for applying the proceeds of such sales towards the removal thither of emigrants from this country.
