To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 21 July 1838

-: To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIR,-I beg to suggest, and hope that it may be   thought advisable to insert it in your next number, the following plan for destroying the Native Dogs, stock to the amount, I believe, of £300 per annum being killed by these animals. Let the Aborigines be put in possession of twenty or thirty strong traps, which, by the assistance and direc tion of James Cronk, the Sub-Protector of the Abo rigines, they may soon be instructed to set in the tracks and at the entrance of the dens of the native dogs. This employment would be eagerly pursued by the Aborigines; and I would recommend that they be paid 10s. for each dog they kill,—and thus rid the Colony of these destructive creatures, and at the same time lead the Natives to usefulness. ROBERT COCK. Adelaide, July 18, 1838.

TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 21 July 1838

TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIR.— It will be in the recollection of many of your readers, that during the visit of our esteemed friends Messrs. Backhouse and Walker, a TEMPER- ANCE SOCIETY was formed in Adelaide. The forma- tion of this Society is doubtless to be attributed to the agency of those gentlemen, for although some months have elapsed since their departure, we now only know that such a society was then formed. Are the officers asleep, or are they gone a journey ? In- temperance abounds, its unhappy influence is ex- tending-one from among us has been murdered, another drowned while in a state of inebriation, and the most wretched scenes of degrading intoxication are of daily occurrence, but the Temperance Society is neutral. In the colony are to be found many real friends to the institution who are anxious to promote its interests and let the society at once be pat into active opera- tion and I have no doubt it will meet with efficient supp...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 21 July 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY.   WE adverted in a recent number to the flourish- ing state of the various religious societies in the Colony, as affording gratifying evidence of the moral tone of our population, and we have now to notice an institution of which we may justly be proud--one that does honor to the founders and reflects great credit upon those who con- duct its operations. We allude to the South Australian School Society. Actuated by that nobleness of spirit which is his distinguishing   characteristic, and deeply anxious to promote the temporal and moral welfare of the inhabi- tants of this favoured Province, that excellent man GEORGE FIFE ANGAS, to whom the Co- lonists owe so much, directed his energies to the attainment of an object so important and preg- nant with such interest to our rising Colony, as the establishment of a sound system of educa- tion for the young, and nobly has he succeeded. To his instrumentality, assisted by other emi- nent and en...

THE COROMANDEL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 21 July 1838

THE COROMANDEL.     WE have been requested by the passengers who arrived in the Colony by the Coromandel in January, 1837, to insert the following testimony in favour of the conduct of Capt. CHESSER, who appears to have been but ill rewarded at home for his services: Adelaide, July 14th, 1838. _ WE, the undersigned, passengers by the ship Coro mandel, from England to South Australia, have heard   with strong indignation that the following charges have been brought against Captain CHESSER, commander of that vessel, viz- : 1. -That the detention of the Coromandel at the Cape of Good Hope was unnecessary and un- called for.   2. -That the supply of provisions by the brokers being ample, and the quality good, no further ex- penditure on that account was needed. 3. -That the vessel was detained in the Colony for the accommodation of the passengers. We therefore record our testimony to the un- truth of the above-mentioned statements, kno...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 21 July 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE EXTRAORDINARY/. THIS document presents us with some ground for reflection, and not a little food for merriment: -Km both accounts we feel bound to offer a few observations, and beg the patience of the gentle reader while we examine this precious " Gazette extraordinary." The leading paragraph announces the depar ture of the late Governor on board of the, Alligator, having been accompanied f %o the beach by a numerous body of the most respect able people in the colony. Believing it not unlikely that thb assertion will be sifted by some of our industrious correspondents, we shall con tent ourselves by admitting the fact mat streams of crocodile's tears were shed on the melancholy occasion, nay, that there exists even unto this day, among the whole of our acquaintances, a most mournful and lachrymose expression of countenance, highly characteristic of the public. grief! . We obserre next the installation of GEORGE MILNER STEPHEN, ex Postmaster-General and ex Ad...

We well recollect the hour when GEORGE MIL NER STEPHEN, Esquire, first gladdened the shores of Saint Vincent's Gulph with his pre sence, and our surj ri^e then was that a gentle man who could not have been admitted in any other Colony of the Crown to piaciice;-who was neither barrister nor attorney of the English or any other bar should, "ppr ordonnance duroi," o'erleap all ordinary barrier, and by the mere will of his patron, fill at once the highest law office of the crown within the Colony. We thought then, and we thick now, that such a step was an insult on Captain HIKDMABSH'S part to the Province, and a proof of that innate dis pos...

TÖB 1 UEAStMiY. WE had nopëd ihat the changes about to take place in die various departments, would have rendered it unnecessary for us to allude to the manner in which ibis, o.te ot the most important in the province» is conducted. The knowledge and discertian displayed in the management of it, hitherto, have been noticed at ho"'C and no doubt long eie this, steps have been taken, proving that the Commissioners have noticed them also. But we can no longer be silent, when we find, that although the5merit* d '* bridle far the ass and rod for. thc Jool's back" may be confidently expected, they are still unheeded ; and the vital interests of the province likely to suffer, because the simple and ,easy arrange ments for the salé of land in the colour, are either not understood or wilfully thwarted.
