STATEMENT of Mr. JAMES HALLIDAY, Printer. May 30, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

STATEMENT of Mr. JAMES HALLIDAY, Printer. May 30, 1839. SIR—In answer to your enquiry made this morning, I beg to state that on Friday, the 12th of April, about eleven o'clock P.M., to the best of my remembrance, Mr. Stephen came to the printing office, to Mr. William Thomas' reading-desk, and asked Mr. William if he might be allowed to write a few lines for the paper. Mr. William provided him with materials, and he wrote something. Mr. Stephen said to Mr. William Thomas im- mediately after— " Have you heard of that sale I have effected ? " Mr. William said something very low — " Van Diemen's Land papers' was all I heard. Mr. Stephen then said—I have sold half my estate for twenty thousand pounds. Mr. William answered something about a good bargain, but in a lower tone than Mr. Stephen spoke. Mr William came to me and said—" He's made a good thing of his estate." I answered—" So I hear." I stood at the frame next to him. Mr. William immediately went to William Hillier and told him t...

OPENING OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY'S NEW WHARFS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

OPENING OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY'S NEW WHARFS. ON Saturday last, a numerous and most re- spectable company assembled on the road to the New Port, to witness the ceremony of commencing a road to the South Australian Company's section on the Harbour of Port   Adelaide. His Excellency the Governor, ac- companied by Mrs. Gawler and the ladies of   his family, were received by Mr. McLaren, the manager of the Company, and soon afterwards the proceedings of the day commenced. Captain Sturt said that when he first had the honor of addressing the colonists, he had not the pleasure of being surrounded by so many fair faces as on the present occasion. He observed that the resources and opulence of all countries might be always fairly calculated from the ca- pacity of their harbours and the magnitude of their internal communication. It was essentially necessary to have good harbours, and any country so blessed must both physically and morally rise to eminence. T...

THE NEW WHARFS AT PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

THE NEW WHARFS AT PORT ADELAIDE. IN another part of our paper will be found the fullest report that our limits permit of the opening of the road to the new wharfs at Port Adelaide, on a section belonging to the South Australian Company. It is with great pleasure we record the commencement of an undertaking calculated to increase, in a marked degree, the   facilities for discharging cargoes and loading vessels at the port, and to remedy to a consi- derable extent, that inconvenience which has hitherto been the most prominent among the many attached to our harbour. It is with still   greater pleasure that we can honestly bestow   our warm commendation on the spirit and en-   terprise which has been evinced by Mr.   McLaren, the manager of the Company, in determining to devote a portion of the extensive means at his command to a purpose combining such public utility with so much certainty of   beneficial resu...

THE SESSIONS?—LAW OF LIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

THE SESSIONS—LAW OF LIBEL. The third Criminal Sessions terminated on Tuesday by the conviction of Mr. Archibald Macdougal, the printer of the Southern Aus- tralian, for a libel on the hon. George Milner Stephen, Esq., the present Colonial Secretary.   The details of this most painful case our readers will find elsewhere. We regret to learn that an opinion is afloat   that the summing up of His Honor Chief Justice Cooper was scarcely so impartial as it ought to have been. Nothing, in our humble opinion, was fairer than the conduct of His Honor during the whole trial, and it is most inconsiderate to impute to a Judge that which truly and properly belongs to the law of which   he is but the administrator. The course adopted by Mr. Stephen was the only one of three in which the truth of the matter alleged to be libellous is by law carefully excluded. By     criminal information the prosecutor must first declare upon oath t...

STATEMENT of Mr. WILLIAM [?] THOMAS [?]man in the Gazette Printing-office. Gazette Office, May 30, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

STATEMENT of Mr. WILLIAM Kyffin THOMAS Foreman in the Gazette Printing-office. Gazette Office, May 30, 1839. SIR.—In answer to your enquiry I have to state that—On Friday night, the 12th April, Mr. Stephen, the Colonial Secretary, came into the office between ten and twelve o'clock, as nearly as I can remember, and came up to me and asked if he could write a note to Mr. Stevenson. I answered that he could, as I was just sending over. I accordingly gave him up my reading-desk, and furnished him with paper. While writing the note, he asked whether I had heard of the sale he had effected. I answered that I had seen something in the Van Diemens Land papers about. He said   something of that being incorrect, and said the report must have arisen from the circumstance of Mr. Strangways having offered him £10 an   acre for any part of his Estate. He then told me that had sold the half of the Milner     Estate for £20,000. I said I was happy to hear he had made so g...

On his cross-examina- tion by Mr. Mann, who conducted the defence, the following answers to certain questions were given by Mr. Stephen:— Mr. Mann—There is the South Australian   Gazette of the 13th April last. You will   observe an article in it at the bottom of the third page headed " Town of Milner." Look at that paper and say by whom was that article inserted? Mr Stephen—By the Editor, I suppose.

EXECUTION OF THE TWO NATIVE MURDERERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

EXECUTION OF THE TWO NATIVE MURDERERS. Yesterday morning being the time appointed for the execution of YERR-I-CHA who was con- demned in the Supreme Court last week for being engaged in the murder of William Duffell, and Wang Nucha who was condemned for the murder of James Thompson, at an early hour in the morning preparations were being made for the execution. A scaffold had been erected in front of the iron stores on the Park Land, North Adelaide, to which, at eight o'clock, the criminals were conducted in a cart, guarded by a strong body of police. James Cronk the interpreter walked alongside the cart, to whom Wang Nucha kept talking most of the way from the jail to the place of execution. By the time they arrived at the scaffold a considerable number of people had assembled round it. After the warrant for their execution had been read by the Sheriff, the unfortunate men were led, or rather dragged, upon the scaffold, and placed, by the executioner, on the fatal drop. They then s...

(COPY.) STATEMENT OF THE MILNER PURCHASE. Early in April last, Captain Allen accompanied me to Milner with a view to purchasing some portion of the Milner Estate, I having asked him £1,000 for a hundred acres. On our return to town he stated that he should like a friend of his,                 Mr. Ellis, to join in a purchase, and he brought   Mr. Ellis to me. I then told them that I should be happy to sell   them half the estate for £10,000. We had a long       conversation about the prospects of the estate   with respect to making a return for the large out- lay of capital; and finally they declared themselves   disposed to enter into an arrangement with me,   subject to Mr. Ellis's proceeding to the estate to inspect it, and subsequent agreement.     I told them ...

SUPREME COURT?—CRIMINAL SIDE. (Continued from our last ) MONDAY, MAY 27. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 June 1839

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. (Continued from our last ) MONDAY, MAY 27. William Hollyer was brought up and sentenced to transportation for life. Robert Wilson was then sentenced to transporta- tion for seven years, for the robbery committed at the London Tavern. Tam o'Shanter and Bob, the two natives acquit- ted of the murder of James Thompson, were then placed at the bar, charged with killing and steal-   ing sheep. They pleaded Not Guilty. The Ad- vocate-general then explained to the Court that he feared he had not sufficient evidence to bring the matter home to the prisoners— they were therefore acquitted, and Tam o'Shanter was immediately set at liberty.     Bob was then placed at the bar, charged with   throwing spears at Daniel Cox, with intent to   murder him. Daniel Cox reiterated the evidence   he had given on the trial of the prisoner, for the murder of James Thompson, and swore most posi- &a...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 June 1839

EXTRACTS. CAPTAIN BASIL HALL'S TRAVELS- A long while ago, when I was preparing for a voyage to China, I asked an old gentleman, well acquainted with those countries, to give me some hints for my guidance amongst a people no different in manners from those I had been acustomed to. The old boy, who seldom said any thing without a spice of sarcasm, reflected a moment and then replied—" Whenever you kill a Chinese, throw him as quietly and quickly as you can into the river !" The satire here was directed against the absurd laws of China, which hold the person who is found nearest to a dead body responsible for the death. The effect of this is to drive away all assistance from a person who either in or may be thought to be dying—in short, to deprive him of help exactly at the time when it might be most useful to him, or when, if it could not be useful   in saving his life, it might soothe and cheer his last moments. We laugh at the perverse folly of the Chinese, but in civil...

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 June 1839

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. BY the Van Diemen's Land papers received by the Abeona on Wednesday, we have news from England to the 16th January. Her Majesty was at Brighton, and, from all appearances, Ministers continued firm in their places. Several provincial agitators were at work among the operatives in the country. Torchlight meetings had commenced,     and a Royal Proclamation prohibiting them had   been issued. The while of the Martello towers on the coast of Ireland are being refitted, re-armed and occu-   pied by troops. The royal yacht squadron has offered to furnish the government with sixty sail of fully armed and equipped ten gun vessels for channel service ; ten     sail to be constantly out at a time. Sir James Carnac was appointed governor of Bombay. The O'Connell tribute paid in advance for the     present year, collected throughout Ireland in one   day, amou...

THE NATIVES. Sir- I report having been so obscure in "the Suggestions as to the Aborigines," which appeared in your journal two or three weeks since, as to fail in penetrating the understanding of one of your                                       correspondents, who, more intent on a critique than utility, perverts the meaning because it has eluded his comprehension. I stated it as a matter of regret that a mart had   not at the first been opened where the natives might have been gradually taught to deal—to imbibe, with a knowledge of commerce, know- ledge superior, and which it is desired they should possess. I regretted such a system had not been com-     menced with on the first landing, when the na...
