EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 June 1839

EXTRACTS. PAST AND PRESENT STATE OF THE SOCIETY ISLANDS.—The Society Islands no longer retain those practices so disgraceful to humanity, de- scribed by the early navigators: no longer do we behold a concourse of aimed men dragging their victims to sacrifice: no longer is heard, revebe- rating from hill to hill, the appalling and dis- sonant sound of the war conch. The senseless images of wood and stone, worshipped through a series of bygone ages, now lie mouldering in     oblivion, while Christianity rears her meek and holy faith upon the ruins of ignorance and false- hood. Who, possessing one sentiment of philan- thropy, could gaze, uninfluenced by pleasurable emotions, on a ludicrous assembly of converted heathens, uniting in prayer and praise to the only true God—listening with rapt attention to the promise of salvation—the words of eternal life pronounced in the soft harmonious language of their own native isles, or could withhold his tribute of praise...

RIGHTS OF PURCHASERS IN ENGLAND OF EIGHTY-ACRE LAND ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 June 1839

RIGHTS OF PURCHASERS IN ENG- LAND OF EIGHTY-ACRE LAND ORDERS. WHEN the cosmogany man in the Vicar of Wakefield sold Moses the gross of green spectacles, he told him they were excellent of their kind, and "dirt cheap" into the bargain. The poor boy could nevery understand why his mother cuffed him soundly for so good a purchase. It is, we suspect, under an obtusity somewhat akin to that of moses, that the 80- acre English land order buyers continue to labor. They are told by some cosmogony man at the Adelphi that they could take their land   in preference to all others on reaching the colony ; they found another cosmogany man here who told them the same story; and not- withstanding they soon discovered that no such advantages would be permitted, and despite the cuffing they have since received from the Commissioner and from ourselves, they con- tinue, like Moses, under the belief that the " rims would melt for double the money" and that their land orders are worth twice ...

PORT PHILLIP [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 June 1839

PORT PHILLIP WE have always freely acknowledged that the good folks of Adelaide could not compete with their neighbours of "Australia the Blessed," as our contemporaries of Port Phillip delight to call their fine country. The refined and intellectual tone which pervades the latter will be best understood by the following extracts from the Police Reports published in Fawkner's Melbourne Patriot. We must apoligize to our readers for transferring the blackguardism te our columns ; but we really know no other way of conveying to their minds the full amount of the superiority of Port Phillip morals :— Scenes in High Life—On Friday, near mid- night, some two or three cowardly fellows, evi- dently disguised, commenced at our residence a riotous disturbance of the vilest and grossest na- ture (as we are informed), using the most obscene and horrible language; and after being turned         away by our servant, they were traced into the &am...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1839. PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 June 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1839. PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. ROBERT COCK. EVERY day brings us some new and interesting facts connected with the geography of this province; and we consider that in devoting the greatest possible space of our journal to their publicity, we are doing the best service in our power to all connected with this rising colony. Three of the great links in the chain of communication westward from Adelaide have at length been finally secured— first, by the magnificent harbour of Port Lincoln, on the western shores of Spencer's Gulf; second, by the discovery of an available harbour nearly opposite to Port Lincoln on the eastern shores of the same Gulf, called Port Victoria ; and, third, by a safe and commodious anchorage on the western shores of Gulf St. Vincent, nearly in the game parallel of latitude with Port Adelaide and Glenelg. This last men- tioned harbour has been named Port St. Vincent.   At these three harbours special surveys, ea...
