OPPOSITION TO THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

OPPOSITION TO THE COLONY. It was to be expected that the formation of a colony to be supplied with free labourers at no great distance from the con-   vict settlements of Van Diemen's Land and New South Wales, and upon a territory the superior capabilities of which are so well known to the inhabitants of these places, would create some uneasiness on their parts, and that, as at the first view it appeared directly inimical to their interests, attempts would be made to throw a damp over the South Australian enterprise   That such attempts have been made there is abundant evi- dence. "Envious or interested writers," observes Mr. Angas,   in his able Report to the South Australian Company, "feel   no compunction in calumniating the object of their dislike, be it ever so worthy of public patronage, or instrumental in pro- moting the public welfare—especially if such object should be an institution rivalling their own views or prospects....

INCREASED VALUE OF LAND IN SYDNEY AND VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

INCREASED VALUE OF LAND IN SYDNEY AND VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The rapid advance in the value of land in the Australian colonies affords perhaps but a feeble estimate of that increase of price which may be expected in a colony as favourably circumstanced with regard to position, and less disadvanta- geously as respects its social organization. In South Au- stralia already the value of the sections first disposed of are at a premium of from 40l. to 49l. In illustration of the rise in the value of land in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, we subjoin the follow-   ing extract from a letter, dated Launceston, December 20th, 1835, addressed to Osmond Gilles, Esq., Colonial Treasurer of South Australia, at present in London. "Your relative made a good hit the other day; he purchased in     September last a piece of land in the town, for which he paid 1.200l.: on Tuesday last he parcelled it out, and sold it by auction, where it fetched him 2,245l.; th...

THE WOOL STAPLE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

THE WOOL STAPLE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The progress of the woollen manufacture in England will be in proportion to the extent and to the quality of the supply of raw material which she may be able to command ; and the prosperity of the British settlements in Australia will be in proportion to the extent and to the intensity of the demand for the staple, in the production of which nature has con- ferred upon Australia an unrivalled advantage. The increase of the woollen manufacture in England will depend, in no inconsiderable degree, upon the progress of colonization in Australia, and the progress of Australian colonization will receive an additional impulse from the extension of the woollen manufacture in England. When we contemplate the manufacturing superiority which coal and iron, and ma- chinery, and energy, and skill, and credit, and communica- tion, all contribute to confer on England; and when we take into our account the constantly increasing demand for manu- factured goods whi...

WHALE FISHERIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

WHALE FISHERIES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The importance of these fisheries is daily becoming more known in England. But when we state the fact, that Sydney alone has 60 sail of vessels of various sizes engaged in pur-   suit of the whale and seal, the value attached to the fisheries in their immediate locality may be estimated. Within the last few weeks the Lavinia and the Westmore- land have brought to England 400 tuns of the oil of the black whale, from the station on the coast of New Holland, about 35 miles east of the line of demarcation of South Australia; 170 whales have been captured in this bay, in one short season, and in the immediate waters of our new Colony. When it is considered that the whole of this service is per- formed in boats, with only one small schooner, of about 50 tons, anchored in the bay, it shows what well-directed British enterprise can accomplish on such small means. Mr. Edward Henty, a member of the adventurous family of that name, so well known...

SURVEY OF THE COAST OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SITE OF THE CAPITAL OF THE PROVINCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

SURVEY OF THE COAST OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SITE OF THE CAPITAL OF THE PROVINCE. The preliminary survey of the coast of South Australia has been intrusted to Lieut.-Col. LIGHT, one of the aides-de-camp to his Grace the Duke of WELLINGTON during the Peninsu- lar War, who has been appointed Surveyor-General of the Colony. Colonel Light and his staff of assistant-surveyors left Gravesend on the 4th of May, in the Rapid brig of 162 tons, purchased by the Commissioners as a surveying vessel, and expressly equipped for the service on which it is now employed. The Rapid has on board a very complete set of surveying instruments, with provisions, clothing, and other stores, for twelve months. Colonel Light has been furnished by Lord Glenelg with despatches to the Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land, which will secure for the surveying party assistance in any case of difficulty. Colonel Light has also instructions for his guidance in selecting the site of the first town. The Cygnet, of 239 t...

PRESENTATION OF A SILVER VASE, By the Colonists of South Australia, To COLONEL TORRENS, F.R.S., Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, &c. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

PRESENTATION OF A SILVER VASE, By the Colonists of South Australia, To COLONEL TORRENS, F.R.S., Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, &c. In the spring of the present year the colonists and settlers of South Australia convened several meetings to consider the propriety of offering to Col. Torrens a testimony of the high estimation in which they held his judicious and indefatigable exertions in the support and protection of those principles of colonization, the present operation of which distinguishes the province of Southern Australia from every other colonial possession of the empire. The meetings in question were numerously attended, and the enthusiasm with which the intending settlers of the new province entered into the views of those gentlemen by whom they had been originally called together, will long be remembered with pleasure by the friends of Col. Torrens. The result was the appointment of a committee of gentlemen, by whom it was decided that a silver vase, with ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CHURCH. Amidst the anxieties unavoidably incident to the formation and establishment of the new Colony, it is gratifying to know that the one thing needful, religious instruction, has by no means been forgotten. Of the many individuals who, with their families, propose to settle in the Colony, some, it may readily be concluded, are members of dissenting con- gregations, and are engaged in raising funds to support their forms of worship. Such members of the Church of England as are about to proceed thither are also most anxious that the faith and discipline to which they subscribe should not only be planted from the very commencement, but be pre- served for their children, by means of a religious establish- ment. They are therefore prepared to contribute towards a fund, to be vested in trustees, for the building of churches and clergymen's houses, and otherwise promoting the inter- ests of religion. Certain other members of the Church of England, who do not intend to...

EDUCATION IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

EDUCATION IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA Besides the commercial advantages presented by situation, and the natural productions of the soil, the salubrity of the climate of South Australia, with its comparative vicinity to India, offers another consideration of prospective advantage to the colonist. The practice of the British residents in India of sending their children to England for their education, of voyaging thither themselves to recruit their health, or the only alternative a temporary residence at Cape Town, Ho- bart Town, or Sydney, in none of which do they meet with congenial society, and in all are deprived of mental resources, suggests the idea recommended to the founders of the Swan River settlement, of the establishment of a town combining the inducements of fine climate, pleasant society, and good schools. Such advantages to be procured within five or six weeks sail of Calcutta, Madras, and Bombay, would scarcely fail of meeting with the encouragement they would deserve; the socie...

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. South Australia, the proposed site of the new colony of that name, lies between the 132° and 141° of east longitude, and from the south coast it comprehends the islands conti- guous to the 26th degree of south latitude, between the Swan River and New South Wales, an extent of country nearly double that of Great Britain. It was discovered by Capt. Flinders, of His Majesty's ship Investigator, who, in 1802, explored the coast. The result of his observations, together with those of subsequent voyagers, has been such as to afford the fullest encouragement to the present enterprize, as a measure of public benefit, and of individual interest. To begin with the requisitions of climate and soil:—all reports accord as to the salubrity of the former, the temperature is cooler than that of corresponding latitudes in our own hemi- sphere, and the heavy dews which fall preserve the moisture and freshness of the earth without being productive of inju- rious e...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. In connexion with the official proceedings of his Majesty's Government and Commissioners, in the establishment and colonization of Southern Australia, the great commercial company whose designation heads this article merits a pro- minent place in our journal. The history of the formation of this company, did our limits permit its detail, would show not only what energy and perseverance can accomplish, but would furnish a striking example of the combination of the higher order of moral and religious views—the extension of civilization and the truths of Christianity—with the practical objects of commercial en- terprise. We have already said that the names of the chair- man and directors of the South Australian Company afford a sure guarantee for the success of the undertaking. Here is the Board:— George Fife Angas, Esq., Chairman. Raikes Currie, Esq. Christopher Rawson, Esq. Charles Hindley, Esq., M,P. John Rundle, Esq., M.P.   James Hyde, Es...

COLONIAL IMPORTS AND EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

COLONIAL IMPORTS AND EXPORTS. From the interesting and valuable work on Colonization, by Colonel TORRENS, we take the following extract in refer- ence to the comparative colonial exports and imports: — "The amounts of the exports and imports of these several colo- nies, establish in an extraordinary and striking manner the supe- rior commercial capabilities of Australia. The soil and climate of that country are so peculiarly adapted to the production of commo- dities, in great demand in foreign markets, and the results of the labour and capital therein employed, maintain, in consequence, so high a comparative value in foreign markets, that, in proportion to its population, the colony of New South Wales has a commerce more than four times as great as the Canadas, four times as great as Nova Scotia, three and a half times as great as the Cape Colony, and twenty-three times as great as Ceylon; while it opens, in pro-   portion to its population, a demand for British mercha...

GOVERNMENT AND PROTECTION OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

GOVERNMENT AND PROTECTION OF THE COLONY. South Australia is to be governed precisely as the other colonies of the Crown, not possessing a Legislative Assembly, that is, by a governor appointed by the King, assisted by a Legislative Council. When the population amounts to 50,000, the colony will be entitled to a local constitution. The powers of the governor in South Australia, therefore, are the same as other governors, except in so far as the disposal of the public lands is concerned, which, by the Act, is under the especial control of a resident commissioner, acting according to the instructions of the Board of His Majesty's Commissioners for South Australia in London. The chief duty of this Board is to take care that the lands be properly surveyed and brought into market, and that the revenue arising from their sale be strictly devoted to the pur- pose of supplying the colony with labourers. His Majesty has been pleased to nominate as governor Captain HINDMARSH, R. N., K. H. The ...

Torrens, F.R.S., Chairman, Edward Barnard, Esq. Jacob Montefiore, Esq. William Hutt, Esq., M.P. George Palmer, Jun., Esq. John Geo. Shaw Lefevre, Esq. James Pennington, Esq. Wm. A.

As in the preceding columns, the principles on which the colony is to be conducted are fully developed, it is unneces- sary here to repeat the remarks which precede the official statement of the commissioners relative to the two important divisions, namely, the disposal of the land, and the regula- tions for supplying the colony with free emigrant labourers. In compliance with the conditions of the Act of Parlia- ment, the commissioners have already sold 35,000l. worth of l...

FIRST REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. (Abridged.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

FIRST REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. (Abridged.) " Having succeeded in raising the subscribed capital of £200,000, with a deposit of £5 per share, making £20,000 paid up, the Com- pany was formed on the 22d of January, 1836. "Their first object was to purchase such a quantity of land in the new colony, from the 'Colonization Commissioners for South   Australia,' as would be best suited to the purposes of the Company, and on such terms as were likely to yield a profitable return. * * They judged it wisest, if they erred at all on this point, to do so on the safe side, —to purchase only as much country land as would be necessary for the purposes they had in view, and as much town land as they could obtain. At the same time, however, they entered into a contract for an additional quantity of land on conditional terms. * * * Besides these purchases they have secured 320 acres of land at Nepean Bay, which the Company's chief manager will select on h...

The Colonial Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

In times wherein the advancement of all other sciences is so rapid, that the science of colonisation should alone stand still was not to be expected. Indeed, considering the magni- tude of our colonial possessions, and the important interests connected with them at stake, it is not very flattering to our national character that the subject should have been hitherto so ill understood, and occupied so small a portion of the at- tention of the economist and the philosopher. The history of our early colonies, down to the establishment of that on the Swan River, has been but the history of difficulties, em- barrassments, privations, and sufferings. Whatever eventual success attended them, their first establishment was almost invariably a failure. The causes of the unfortunate com- mencement of our most prosperous colonies have been fully developed ; and it is by carefully avoiding the worst portions of the ancestral track, by steering clear of the rocks upon which our progenitors struck,...

ERECTION AND CONSTITUTION OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 June 1836

ERECTION AND CONSTITUTION OF THE COLONY. On the location just described the present colony was projected in the summer of 1831, when a number of gentle-   men, distinguished for talent and wealth, formed themselves into a committee for establishing a chartered company to carry the measure into execution. Failing, after a long nego- tiation, to obtain their charter, the scheme was abandoned until the beginning of 1834, when another society was form- ed, assuming the name of the South Australian Association. By its efforts an Act was introduced, which, passing the Commons, met with some opposition from the Lords, but was finally carried, mainly through the instrumentality of the Duke of Wellington.* Of that part only of the Act which has reference chiefly to the leading principles of the scheme of colonization we propose to give an outline here, omitting the technicalities and extraneous matter which, though far from foreign to the subject, is not necessary to the &am...

The Colonial Register. To print the first number of the SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE and COLONIAL REGISTER in the capital of the civilized world, with the intention of publishing its second number in a city of the wilderness of which the site is yet unknown, may appear to many more chimerical than inter- esting; but we trust to satisfy all who honour these pages with other than a casual glance that there is greater pru- dence and higher import in that intention than are apparent on the surface ; and, moreover, that, without presumption or self-deceit, our scheme possesses none of the characteristics of the rash projector, but is the result of the patient investi- gation of men qualified by years and experience to form a sound judgment, and who, in all other relations of life, have acted on opinions cautiously adopted, deliberately confirmed, and fully capable of practical development. That the plan for the colonization of South Australia is one of the nature we have described, we refer ...
