TRIAL BY JURY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
TRIAL BY JURY. THE institutions of a nation have ever been deemed the most accurate tests of the character of a people. The outward marks of wealth and power, which attract the gaze of a foreigner on the shores of England ; the forests of masts which crowd her havens; the producís of every clime, lavishly displayed in her marts: these, striking and wonderful as they really are, lie too near the surface, and we should turn unhesita tingly from such indices, to those imperishable institutions of her intellect-her juries and her senates. The mass of wealth which every where meets the eye in Britain, does indeed indicate a high state of palmy prosperity ; but history has taught us that this outside splendour may cover ruin and decadence, and consist with unmanly slavery and tyrannical absolutism-witness the reigns of a Justinian and an Aurungzebe. Not thus uncertain, however, are the tests which we can apply by a reference to the immaterial. We turn to our right of Jury with justifiable...
SURVEY REPORT ON THE CAPABILITIES OF ENCOUNTER BAY. ADELAIDE, 5th May, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
SURVEY REPORT ON THE CAPABILITIES OF ENCOUNTER BAY. ADELAIDE, 5th May, 1838 SIR,—I have the honor to report to you the result of my journey to Encounter Bay, whither I proceeded on the 17th ultimo agreeable to your order, accom- panied by Mr. Nixon, for the purpose of surveying and examining the locality in the best way the short time we had before us would admit. We were attend- ed by three men of my surveying party, and a guide engaged only to take us there ; and we had with us tents, provisions, &c., in a cart drawn by four oxen, to enable us to remain out three weeks if necessary. We passed the ford at Unkaporinga where the river enters a precipitous ravine, continued the route through a grassy undulating open forest, and then through the open and extensive tract known by the name of Al- dinghi Plains, till we came to the foot of the hills forming the termination of the Mount Lofty range to the southward. We had considerable difficulty in getting the cart over this range...
TO THE WORKING CLASSES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
TO THE WORKING CLASSES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. FELLOW COLONISTS.—The benevolent founders of this Colony, anxious to improve the moral and social condition of the classes to which you belong, availed themselves of the splendid scheme of Colonization broached hy Mr. WAKEFIELD, as affording them the best means of effecting that object. They saw many of you earning a precarious subsistence, frequently compelled to appeal to the bounty of individuals, or the relief of the parish for the preservation of your existence ; and even such as were in comparative comfort, living from week to week with little or no provision for sickness and old age, and none whatever &nbsp; for the support aud future welfare of your children. &nbsp; You were in the bosom of a State possessing the &nbsp; highest degree of civilization, the largest portion of &nbsp; national liberty, and the most highly cultivated men- &nbsp; tal energies in the world ; mocked by its blessings, ...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. The state of the Emigration Depot shall receive our immediate attention. A full Report of the Dinner given to Mr. Hawdon, is only postponed from press of matter. It will ap- pear in our next. Notice will also be taken in our second number of the &nbsp; Meeting held to memorialize the Governor on the subject of the Public Lands. Want of room compels us to omit inserting this week the Shipping and Trade Lists, as also several arti- cles and advertisements already in type.

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. "Quid verum atque [?]cens caro, et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum--- HOR. lib. [?], ep [?], v [?]. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 2, 1838. ADDRESS TO THE READER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. "Quid verum atque d cens cure, et rege, et omnis in hoc &nbsp; sum --- HOR. EP., lib. 1, ep 1, v 11. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 2, 1838. ADDRESS TO THE READER. THE English language, powerfully as it has em- bodied the wit and wisdom, the poetry and phi- losophy, of our father land, must yet be admitted &nbsp; to want one powerful adjunct of expression, the possession of which has enabled the Greek of old time, and the German of the present day, to make a single word the exponent of a system. We cannot better illustrate the truth of this as- sertion than by a reference to the title of our Journal. To the world at large the name we have &nbsp; adopted will appear to have no greater signifi- cancy than those to which they have hitherto been &nbsp; accustomed,-- the Chronicles and Times, the Stars and Suns, the Posts and Heralds, the Examiners and Spectators, of coffee-house London celebrity. To us, on the contrary, who have...
COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENT—ADMINISTRATION OF PUBLIC JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENT—ADMINISTRATION OF PUBLIC JUSTICE. AT the hazard of anticipating illustrations of the &nbsp; article which we have announced on the causes and probable results of the pending political &nbsp; disputes, we feel compelled at once to advert to &nbsp; the peculiar state of the Council of Government &nbsp; of the Province, and to the administration of justice in the Supreme Court. In the Council of Government at the present moment, with the &nbsp; exception of His Excellency and the Commis- &nbsp; sioner of Public Lands, no member of that &nbsp; Council, as originally appointed by His Majesty &nbsp; in Privy Council, holds his seat as a Councillor. With these exceptions, the members of a board &nbsp; possessing powers of the most transcendent na- ture—powers which, with reverence be it spoken, &nbsp; kingly prerogative does not include within its &nbsp; scope—have been appointed b...
THE ABORIGINES' COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
THE ABORIGINES' COMMITTEE. The appointment of this committee is one of the most prudent and popular measures of His Excellency's Government, but we cannot help expressing our surprise that no public announce- ment, either by advertisement or otherwise, has yet emanated from the Colonial Secretary's Office upon the subject. Surely it is no less due to the gentlemen forming the Committee, than to the Colonists generally, by whom a portion of its members are nominated, and to whom the subject is of such vital interest, that the ordinary official in timation should be given. We have been favoured with a brief statement of the origin of the appointment, and a sketch of the proceedings up the 25th ult., and we allude to the circumstances under which the Committee was formed, as it is our intention to watch their &nbsp; proceedings closely, and to report to the Colonists from time to time the result of their deliberations. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It will be in ...
RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. PUBLIC and private character have wisely been &nbsp; &nbsp; separated by a broad line of demarcation. &nbsp; To scrutinize with rigid accuracy the public &nbsp; career of any individual is a duty; to invade the &nbsp; sacred privacy of the domestic circle is a crime. &nbsp; &nbsp; To this distinction we shall ever rigidly adhere ; and our present strictutes must therefore betaken as applying, to Governor HINDMARSH, in his official capacity. From the first landing of the Governor to the present hour, we have watched his career with anxiety; and we hesitate not to avow our convic- tion that his appointment must have taken place when some malignant star was in the ascendant. We shall have ample opportunity hereafter to shew the reasons of our conviction. For the present it is sufficient to assert, that now at least the good genius of the Colony predominates ; and that there is every reason to believe t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE. COLONIAL SECRETARY'S OFFICE, &nbsp; &nbsp; May 11, 1838. IT having been intimated to the Governor that the Colonists are anxious that a FENCING ACT should be passed, His Excellency directs me to notify that he will cause a Bill to be passed for the consideration of the Council so soon as he shall be &nbsp; satisfied that such a law is desired by the Colonists generally. The Governor suggests that those Colonists who &nbsp; are interested, should meet together and discuss the policy of the measure; and if a large majority appear to be in favor of it, that the meeting should elect a Committee of five or seven persons for the purpose of suggesting to the Government such provisions as the Act should in their opinion contain. And in that case &nbsp; Mr. Stephen, the Advocate General, will receive His Excellency instructions to confer with the Committee, and attend to their suggestions as far as practicable in preparing the...
SALE OF LAND BY THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 June 1838
SALE OF LAND BY THE GOVERNOR. THE latest advices received from England inform us that £200 could be readily obtained there for a Preliminary Land Order, and £50 for a town Section ; a gratifying proof to the friends of the Colony here of the confidence of its friends at home, and the interest felt in its prosperity. It is with much pleasure we can announce to them in return that a country section of 134 acres has been sold here for £1000. The section, it is true, is situated close to the town, on the northern bank of the river,— has a frontage on the line of the proposed road to the harbour,— is very excel- lent land,— and, in short, is one of the most valuable sections in the Colony. Nevertheless, we hold that the circumstance of £1000 being given for 134 acres of land which eighteen months ago no civilized being had seen, cannot be paral- leled in any preceding attempt at colonization. But having thus boasted, and rejoicing that we can boast in such a proof of our progress, we pro...
THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. "Quid verum algue decens cure, et rogo, et emnis in hoc sum.—HON. EP., lib. 1, ep. l,v. 11. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 9,1838. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838
THE SOUTjïERN AÜSTRALLAN. - Quid verum atgue decent euro, et rogo, el omni lim hoe mm.-Hon. Er., lib. 1, ep. li. ADEUDE: SATCBDATMO&NING, Jams 9,1838. THE course of time is like that of a mighty and impetuous river. To the wayfarer on its banks the ¿bange which it effects is imperceptible. The flower, the tree, the stately mansion, seem to be symbols of the permanent ; and that which the sunbeam has awakened info life and light in the, morning, is &lt;^fidentiy ex pected to gladden th« eVenmg ofeid^ence. .Ànd yet, mutation and decay are working unseen, and the massive forms of nature and of art, are ¡slowly crumbling into dust. Generation after I eeneration rise and fall-empires are founded, flourish, and *decay ; and ß% length comes tibe inevitable hour-and that' which was, is.Jio : more ; and tíijé boast of art is but the empty vaunt of history; and'theory features of thei solid earth have changed, and proclaim the triumph of the mutable. As it is in the phy sical,...
SALE OF LAND BY THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838
SAXE OF LAKD BY THE GOVERNOR. WE intended to return to the consideration of this subject this week, but we have not room. Our friends who have been the purchasers, however, may depend upon us that we shall ever be found ready fearlessly ta espouse their interests, and to expose every measure which we think can he shown to militate against them. We fear this has been a one-sided bargain; and we consider, it to be our duty as Journalists to expose it, if it beso.
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838
, SOOTH AUSTRALIAN-RECORD. I IT is with unfeigned pleasure we introdúcete our readers a periodical published in the mother 'country, the pages of which are devoted to the illustration of matters purely South Australian, lhere is in this much that is peculiarly gratifying to the feelings of every true colonist. It proves beyond the possibility of contradiction the interest which is taken in our progress by a large party of the intellectual class of tile crowded population of that land, to which all the stronger feelings of pur nature still attach us. It must strate averys one, that the existence of such a paper is a de monstration, " strong as proof of holy writ," that a class of readers capable of payirg its current, expenses, and of remunerating its conductors, must exist in the mother country. But if so, what gladdening prospects does it present to our view. We see in it the overthrow of that scepti cal spirit.-ur worse still, that spirit of staled indifférence with, which we ours...

ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838
ENCOUNTER BAT. I THE interesting and instructive report of Air. ; FINNISS, which we published in our last num- ' ber will naturally attract the serious attention of * our readers. Good wine, says the proverb, needs 1 np bush; and we shall not therefore waste time in calling attention to its details, but content ourselves with expressing the hearty contempt we feel for the qualities both of head and heart of the impugners of Colonel LIGHT'S discretion, as evidenced in his se lection of a site for the capital. As we have already stated in another part of the paper, that site is now irrevocably fixed, and if our readers desire further proof-a startling one has been given them in the recent contract which His Excellency has been pleased to enter into with divers of Her Majesty's lie^e subjects. This at least may be said to be a bond in a £l OOO penalty, for the continuance of the capital of Southern Australia, on the lovely site which has been selected by the admirable taste of the Sur ...

PUBLIC MEETING TO CONSIDER THE STATE OF THE LAW WITH REFERENCE TO ITS ADMINISTRATION. ON the 2nd of May ult., a requisition signed by upwards of sixty individuals, and containing the names of the most influential and respectable gentlemen in tire Province, was presented to the late Sheriff, S. SMÀ«T, Esq. That gentleman, with bis usual prompt attention to the wishes of tbe Colonists, convened a meeting to be holden at Seven o'clock of the evening of Friday the 11th of May, at Shepherd's Hotel, Franklin Street. At the appointed time upwards of 500 persons assembled in the room, and amongst others we noticed the Hon. Mr.Fisher, Messrs.Hindmarsh, Morphett, Dutton, Pollard, Anstey, Finniss, J. B.and S. Hack, Brown, Gilbert, Johnstone, Cotter, Everard, -Gwynne, Smith, Coltman, Neale, Cock, Phillips, Ferguson, and Wilhams. The interest excited was obviously intense, and the quiet and respectable appearance of all persons, afforded a gratifying proof of the pros perity of the Colony, and t...
