THIS COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 29. 1838.
THE Prince George and Glenalvon from London — the Zebra from Altona - the Parland from Sydney — and the Socrates from Launceston, ar- rived yesterday, and the Black Joke, from Port
Phillip, on the 27th. There are now about twenty vessels in the roads and harbour. The latest advices from London are up to the 4th September. There is no intelligence of im- portance ; but the late hour at which we received our papers prevents a summary till our next. The demand for land, we rejoice to say, continues to increase. Nearly 9000 acres have been lately sold; and a party of noblemen and gentlemen are said to have formed an association for the pur- pose of purchasing land in South Australia. The Dukes of Sutherland and Richmond are at the head of this undertaking. The New Judge.-—Henry Cooper, Esq., Bar- rister, has been appointed Chief Justice of the Province of South Australia. His Honor is ex- pected to arrive early in February.
