VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND.   THOUGH the Scout did not finally leave George Town until Sunday last (having had twice to put back to port), she brings us no later Van Die men's Land journals than we have previously in possession, the Hobart Town Advertiser, for instance, of the 24th, which we received by a private hand so long ago as the 2nd inst., being   now only received direct from the office along with three other numbers of the same journal, the 24th being the latest. This is entirely owing to the abominable practice several of our Van Diemen's Land contemporaries, the Hobart Town Advertiser and the Launceston Examiner in particular, have adopted of delaying to post their papers until they have three or four to send together. We have directed that after the pre- sent number this journal shall not again be sent to the Hobart Town Courier, the editor of that journal having ceased exchange with us for many months back.- P. P. Patriot. [We have precisely similar co...

NORFOLK ISLAND. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Heroin. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 February 1845

NORFOLK ISLAND. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald.     GENTLEMEN - Having recently returned from Norfolk Island, I beg to present the following   remarks, should you deem them worthy of no- tice : - I consider the prison populatiou at Norfolk Island to be in a very unsettled state, bordering on mutiny ; and from what I could learn from   several Gentlemen, residents there, it is the gene   ral opinion things will still assume a more gloomy aspect. A plan was laid by a number to effect an es- cape, and had provided a quantity of maize, flour, &c., also two casks of water, which they had hid in the sand ; likewise a sail from the   windmill ; but fortunately the day the attempt,   was made they were perfectly frustrated and their evil design prevented. Thursday, December 26. - At 1, p.m., while lying-to in the Agincourt off the settlement, hav- ing previously in the day landed ...

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 February 1845

WE bail with very great pleasure f he dawn of an attempt to establish in the city a market for country produce, and we are certain that if a few peas for «heep and pig» were erected on the Corporation arre, on two days in the 1 wtek-say Tuesdays and Saturdays -the expense« would be most cheerfully met by the parties interested in that species of merchandise, and which accommoda tion the dealers at present stand much in need of. It is notorious that persons from the country are compelled to hawk about their produce for hours, and at last dis pose of it at most ruinous prices, for want of a few stalls where they could exhibit their wares and 6tock to the public. We could not, of course, for a moment contem plate cattle coming into the city for Bale bot all the smaller animals, we are sure, would often find bayer* it there were accommodation to exhibit them. WE are much astonished that 6ome of our enterprising builders do not turn to in earnest, and erect a few dozen cottages at Glenel...

THE CRITIC CRITISISED, TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 February 1845

THE CRITIC CRITISISED, TO THE EDITOB OF THE SOUTH AUSTBALIAN. Sra-The correspondent who has had the temerity to censure the bad grammar, etc., of the South Australian Register, and to expresa his disapproval of the spirit adopted by the criticiser of the Odd Fellows* Magazine, ! has not objected to break a lance with their chivalrous champion, " X." " X" insinuates that I am come galled jade, wincing under the pungent satire of the criticiser-: here "X." errs most egregiously, the critic's Batire never (so far RS I am aware) having been levelled against me. With respect to the volley of Billingsgate alleged to have been ¡ discharged against " the Critic General," I defy " X." to point out a single expression in my communication which merits the epithet, Billingsgate. AB to the charge ! I have advanced against the criticiser, " that he has treated the colonial writers illiberally and harshly," I see no reason to retract it. Granting that the critic's remarks were abstractedly just, s...

Correspondence. DUTIES OF THE CORONER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 February 1845

DUTIES OF THE CORONER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. SIB-The apathy with which the public have long r e garded the office and duties of Coroner no longer exists, and some decided measure is now unavoidable to calm the general dissatisfaction which prevails on the subject. The question whether that functionary should be a legal or a medical man baa been mooted, I observe, by the j Observer. Were the election again to te made, the pre - I ference should be given to some intelligent medical man j ou whose judgment the people might repose confidence, j and whose character would remove him alike from direct influence and secret control. Abpve all the other requi sites for the office, however, are independence and firm ness, united to a conviction that on the uncompromising exercise of the duties belonging to it-in ALT. cases of sudden or suspicious death-rests the security of her Majesty's subjects against medical maltreatment or any other sort of foul play terminating in the lo...

The supply of leaf still being deficient, th-re are only a few more ma nufactured than are required for the consumption of the place. A new regulation ha« bsen adopted by Government to issue what overplus there may be three times a month equally between all applicants who may require for exportation, those for consumption being prohibited. For die month previous to the Munford's departure, there was no overplus, and of course none distributed, and little hopes of any for some time ; so much so that whoever urgently require them buy of Spa niards, who have been gathering them up from ihestf distributions, and have obtained 2 dollars per 1000 above the Government prices.

Cfte &outft Australian. ADBULIDB: TUESDAY. FBSKUABY ll* 1845. SWAN RIVER. BY the Victoria we hare received files of the Swan River Inquirer from Sept. to 8th Jan. Mr Owen, who visited that colony in the Vic toria, and who bas returned in her, had raised quite a commotion among the good people, those who do not intend to leave supposing, evidently, that the fame of South Australia, and the exertions of Mr Owen, would (if timeous measures were not taken to avert the evil), cause them soon to be left alone in their glory. There is evidently in Western Australia, as well as the other Australian colonies, a movement towards South Australia, for in the latest papers we see a number of notices of intentions to leave, and one of them mentions Adelaide as the destination. Another vessel, the Rosanna cutter, had also been laid on for Port Adelaide, to sail on or before 23rd Jau. The Victoria brings twenty one passengers. We must, however, give due credit to our Western Australian frie...
