To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. Sir-As you can do the subject much more justice than I can, and also for [?] [?] [?], I wish you would say something in the Colonial Register respecting the excessive and absurd quantity of land which is to be left waste, under the name of Park Land. The [?] [?] [?]         which I should like you to consider are the fol-         lowing;—hemmed in as we are between the   marshes four miles to the west, and in [?]          impassable and uncultivatable range of [?]         four miles to the east, we ought rather to husband    our good land than leave it almost as [?] except for grazing, plenty of food for which, purpose is   to be had elsewhere. It is [?] [?]        road 50 yards, and a park 500 yards [?]     yards [?] round both towns o...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. Pray Mr. Editor, can you inform the public what has become of all the horses brought for the use of the survey? The Surveyor-General has one, and so has the acting Deputy Surveyor, to which, of course, they are entitled; but why are other officers, who have just as far to go to their work, to walk, by which they undergo un- cesssary fatigue, and the survey is delayed, when there are plenty of horses ? If they are not wanted for the survey, as economy is the order of this colony, they might be let out to the colonists, and the produce of their hire paid into the Trea- sury; for I know that many persons will be glad to get one, and give security to the utmost value of the horse. By the present rate of progress of the survey, owing to the few competent officers we possess, we cannot expect to get our land under 20 months. Much cannot be done this summer, and it will be winter before there is any chance of our receivin...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

ENGLISH NEWS. We have received files of the Sydney papers which contain accounts from England down to the 17th of April. Ministers, to all appearance, were firm in their seats ; and on the grand trial of strength which took place on the Irish Muni- cipal Corporation bill, they had a majority of 80. The Lords, however, were known to be uncom- promisingly hostile, and a dissolution soon after Easter was considered probable. The following is a summary of the leading measures in the House of Commons since the commencement of the session :— 1. IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT BILL.— Sir John Campbell obtained leave to bring in a bill to extend the remedy of creditors against the pro- perty of debtors, and to abolish imprisonment for debt except in cases of fraud. In the course of a very able speech, he stated the appalling fact, that there were 14000 persons in jail for debt, and upwards of three-fourths of them had no property whatever wherewith to satisfy the demands of their cre- ditors. 2. POOR...

THE COLONIST AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

THE COLONIST AGAIN. I am, your's respectfully, A COLONIAL. Your's, &c. A SPECTATOR We publish the following letter of our in- domitable friend the COLONIST very willingly, and thank him for the copies of the instruc- tions he has transmitted to us which we shall publish in our next. We cannot find room for them to day owing to the crowded state of our columns. It would be at at any time but an act of justice to the Com- missioners to let the colonists know the judi- cious arrangements made by them for their comfort and welfare; but it is doubly so at this moment, when these instructions have been carefully concealed by the individual officer for whose guidance they were framed, and whose conduct in reference to them it will be our duty to examine and illustrate. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. Adelaide, 16th August, 1837. Sir,—The benevolent views of the Commis- sioners in London have been carried into effect after a left handed fashion b...

NAVIGATION?—KANGAROO ISLAND. (Communicated by Capt. CAREW.) (COPY. ) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

NAVIGATION—KANGAROO ISLAND. (Communicated by Capt. CAREW.) (COPY. ) EAGLE, Gage's Roads, March 6, 1836. SIR,—Agreeably to your request, I send you the latitude and longitude of a reef of rocks, off Kan-   garoo Island, which I supposed to be the same named " Brockman's Breakers ; "by a good obser-               vation of the sun we made the latitude 36 degrees 20 minutes south, longitude by chronometer 137 degrees 5 minutes. During this voyage we passed a reef off the land about seven or eight miles, running about N. and S. in latitude 37 degrees—the extent of the reef was about four or five miles. Off the north island of Gambier's group, in Spencer's Gulph, there is a reef of rocks running N. and S from the west side of the inland, at least seven miles long. I have only a recent general chart, upon which no such reefs are laid down. I am Sir, &c. (Signed) C. PRATT. The Ho...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. A number of valuable communications, in type, are unavoidably deferred till our next. MARRIAGE. October 25.—John Monck to Catherine Kenny. Special Surveys.—We hear that several     special surveys are contemplated; and it is even   reported that on the part of the South Australian Company, one has already been demanded. We have reason for discrediting this report, as on en- quiry at the Treasury, we understand that the deposit of £4000 has not yet been made. But the preliminary holders need not feel alarm on the subject, as no special Survey can take place till their choice is made. We arc sorry to hear that the Sir Charles Mac Carthy, Duff Master, in on shore at Glenelg, and not likely to be got off. We have not ascer- tained the immediate cause of this wreck. It is of great importance that the Masters of Vessels   anchoring in the roadstead of Glenelg should know that there is no sufficient holding grou...

A FRAGMENT. (PICKED UP IN ADELAIDE) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

A FRAGMENT. (PICKED UP IN ADELAIDE) "Once upon a time, certain merchants trading to various parts of the world, conceived a plan on which they thought ships might be built and navigated so as to carry a larger cargo, give more accomodation to the crew, and also sail faster and surer. So they wrote to the king, who had been a sailor, asking him to have a ship constructed according to their model; and he willing to for- ward any measure which might conduce to the improvement of his navy, granted their request. Then the merchants further said, "we have offi- cers who have served us, who understand our craft, and we wish them to serve in it, that she may have a fair trial, by being managed by men in whom we have confidence." Then the king, thinking this but reasonable, permitted them to name those whom they pleased, that he might appoint them. So they wrote first to one of the king's officers, who, they conceived, was favoura- ble to their views, asking him to solicit the king for the c...

FENCING THE TOWN ALLOTMENTS. OCTAGON COTTAGE, Adelaide. Nov. 8. 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

FENCING THE TOWN ALLOTMENTS. OCTAGON COTTAGE, Adelaide, Nov. 3, 1837. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, OSMOND GILLES. SIR,—I have just heard a report that a fencing act is in contemplation, and as a proprietor of country and town sections, I hasten to communi-   cate the intelligence to my fellow colonists through the columns of your independent journal, and to suggest the propriety of calling a public meeting to consider a subject of so much importance, and likely to create so anxious an outlay. What I take the liberty of suggesting is that a committee of proprietors be appointed to consult as to the means by which a measure so desirable as fencing in their different allotments at the least possible expence, demands. We ought certainly to be prepared against the effects which an obligatory fencing vet would produce, were we found desti- tute of the proper means of procuring materiel; and by being forced into the hands of monopolists, compelled to pay an enormous ...

PROCEEDINGS AT KINGSCOTE. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

PROCEEDINGS AT KINGSCOTE. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. SIR, —Permit me through your columns, to in-   form the public of the disgraceful conduct of certain persons at Kangaroo Island, who make a practice on Ships arriving there, to come on board and utter a tissue of falsehood and malice with respect to this place. I was told that at Adelaide water was scarce, the land bad, provisions dear, and no work to be got, whereas I find every thing is the contrary. A few were induced, by this misrepresentation, to stay at Kangaroo Island, and the others were very much disheartened at the prospect of coming here. Guess what must have been our surprise and pleasure at seeing the beauty of the country, the abundance of grass, and the richness of the land. In fact, every thing has exceeded our expectation, except in finding that we cannot get our land for some time. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, A NEWCOMER. Nothing can be more disrepu...

Gentlemen,—l beg to request you, as printers, publishers, and proprietors of "the South Austra-   lian Gazette and Colonial Register," will furnish me with the name of the author of the letters signed "A Colonist," inserted in that newspaper on the 29th July last, and 14th instant, in order that I may take such proceedings against him as I may be advised, for the libellous matter con- tained in those letters. I think it right to mention t...
