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

SYDNEY. MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS. —Although we have not yet seen a copy of the proposed Municipal Bill, we believe the following are its principal provisions :—The Governor to be authorised to issue Charters or Letters of incorporation to any town containing a certain number of inhabitants, provided they petition for it. Every town so in- corporated shall be a borough, and bear the name of the mayor, aldermen, councillors, and bur- gesses of such borough.

A commissioner and two assessors to be appointed by the Governor to revise the lsit of burgesses in the first instance, which is afterwards to be done by the mayor an...

MINERALOGY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 27 June 1840

MINERALOGY OF SOUTH AUS- TRALIA. Few persons have seen so much, or examined so minutely, the districts between Cape Jervis and the upper or northern portions of the Peninsula, than our scientitic and unobtrusive friend, Mr Joseph Menge. The result of Mr   Menge's investigations, we are glad to believe,   has exceeded his own sanguine expectations;   and several valuable collections of minerals and   geological specimens have already been made   by him and forwarded to England. Wo are   indebted to Mr Menge for the following, and   we are glad to add that he is ready to supply   the cabinets of such colonists as desire to pos-   sess similar specimens, on the most reasonable   terms :— CLASS 1.—SILICA MINERALS. 1.

LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S INSTRUC TION'S TO THE COLONIZTAION COMMISSIONERS. (Continued from our last.) "It is necessary, however, before I go farther, to consider more closely what are the colonies which will fall within the range of your operations. "Amongst the colonial possesions of the Crown there ure many in which there retrains no vacant or unlimited laud whatever. This is true of Malta. Gibraltar, St. Helena, Heligoland, and of many of the older British settlements in the West Indies. it i? true, with 110 inateuul exception, of IVinee Kdtvurd Island.

LORD J. RUSSEL'S INSTRUCTIONS. TITLES TO LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840

LORD J. RUSSEL'S INSTRUCTIONS. TITLES TO LAND. In another part of our paper, we publish the concluding portion of Lord John Russell's Instructions to the new Board of Commission- ers. On re-perusing this important State paper, our attention was particularly attracted by the following observations:— in each colony the Governor holds a commission   enabling him, in the name and on behalf of the soverign, to convey the waste lands to the pur- chasers of them. Except by a grant under the public seal of the colony, issued in pursuance of such a commission, no provate person can establish a valid title to such lands. It is not intended to disturb this ancient and convenient practice. Your appointment does not carry with it the power of making to any person any legal conveyance of lands. But the Governor is authorized not mere- ly to convey waste lands, but to make, on behalf of the Crown, as relates to contracts for the sale of them. Even to this extent, it is not, at pre- se...

IRISH EMIGRATION AND SPECIAL SURVEY COMMUNITY. (From the South Australian Record.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840

IRISH EMIGRATION AND SPECIAL SURVEY COMMUNITY. (From the South Australian Record.) "IN a late number we noticed having received a prospectus of the Irish emigration and Special Survey Community, got up upon a novel system, devised by Mr Robert Torrens for the purpose of bringing together the three great elements in the production of wealth :— capital, which is in excess in England; labour, which is in excess in Ireland; and fertile land, which is abundant in our colonies. The following extract from the prospectus of this community will give some explanation of Mr Torrens' plan :— " ' There are many persons unwilling to invest capital in South Australian land, but who are anxious to obtain the privilege of nominating for a free passage to that rising colony cottiers whom the improvement of their estates renders it expe-     dient to remove, or others of the labouring class whom they desire to aid in adopting emigration as the means of bettering their conditi...

CHINA. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840

CHINA. (From Wednesday's Chronicle.) LAST week we gave some extracts from the Canton and Singapore papers regarding an attempt on the part of the Chinese to destroy the British merchant vessels. This attempt originated, it is said, in a memorial from the prefect of Peking to the Emperor, which proposed such a plan as the best means of getting quit of the British. The following is a copy of this memorial: — It appears that the opium question had over- stepped our central land almost beyond the pos- sibility of cure, when looking up to the great Emperor, we relied upon him, as occupying the seat of heaven, to settle the question with his single effort; and he then commanded the dif- ferent boards and high officers to deliberate upon and fix the sternest statutes, and the viceroys and fooyuens of the different provinces ot exert themselves to the utmost in searching and seizing criminals ; and so well did this answer that within the last year the people of the land have trembled with t...
