SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. WE have received, by the latest arrivals, the supplement to the first annual report of this great and flourishing Company ; and we have heartfelt satisfaction in noticing the inde- fatipable exertions of its excellent chairman, Mr Angas, and the Directors generally, in promoting what we have always regarded not merely as a mercantile enterprize of the highest order, but as the first serious attempt in the history of Colonization to connect and found such mercantile enterprize on the moral and religious welfare of the individuals engaged in it. The extension of the capital of the Company from two to £300,000, has been already noticed, while the vast preparations that have been made and are in progress, evince the determination of the Directors to do full jus- tice to the Shareholders, and take every legiti- mate means of advancing their interests. But in the discharge of our duty as honest journal- ists, we cannot disguise the bitter regret we have experienc...

THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

THE SURVEY. WE cannot discover what the Surveyors are about. For acting in glaring opposition to the spirit of the Commissioners' Instructions, every thing is kept a profound secret, as if the progress of the Survey was interesting only to the Land Commissioner, (who has not an inch of country land or a farthing's interest in it,) or to Colo- nel Light and the surveyors themselves; while the colonists who have been patiently lingering out their means for the last twelvemonth, as well as those daily arriving, are naturally most anxious that some public and official informa- tion should be given on this important point. We stated, in our last, what we believed to be true; and if the Survey is to occupy longer than six months, the more's the pity, say we. A heavy responsibility attaches somewhere. It is quite abominable that the Commissioners' orders as to the full and constant publicity of all the proceedings, both of the Land Com- missioner and the Surveyors, should be totally disreg...

FIRST ATTACK AGAINST THE PRESS IN THE FREE COLONY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient Servant, J. H. FISHER Colonial Commissioner. Messrs. ROBERT THOMAS and Co., Printing Office, Hindley Street. We are, Sir, Your most obedient Servants, ROBT. THOMAS & CO. MR. JAMES HURTLE FISHER, the Resident Commissioner, representing, or more properly, acting as the Provincial Agent of the Coloni-   zation Commissioners for South Australia, has been sufficiently rash and ill advised to threaten legal proceedings for alleged libel against this journal and the writer of the able letters that have appeared in it under the signature of a Colonist! The following correspondence on this subject has taken place .— Adelaide, 25th October, 1837. 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 ...

SECOND ADDRESS BY THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE TO INTENDING EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

SECOND ADDRESS BY THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE TO INTENDING EMIGRANTS. IN the fifth number of the Gazette, published on the 12th August, we narrated as succinetly as we could, a great many things descriptive and illustrative of the new Province of South Australia, and of this its capital. What we then stated was from personal observation on the spot, and we pledged the credit of our journal for its general correctness. The brief remarks we have further to make at present must be premised with a caution not to give implicit faith to the rambling accounts which individuals interested in putting forth flattering misrepresentations may think fit to publish. There is enough of real, substantial encourage- ment in the present and future prospects of our Colony, to render fanciful and high flown descriptions equally unnecessary and mis- chievous. As an instance, we may notice the story sent home by a person named Martin. who commands a small Schooner belonging to the South A...

To the Hon. J H. FISHER, Resident. Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

To the Hon. J H. FISHER, Resident. Commissioner. SIR,—We, the undersigned, owners and agents for owners of land in Adelaide, beg respectfully to represent to you that in the absence of any               official publication of the selection of the "preli- minary" town acres, we are without any means of disposing of a preliminary acre, and of ascertain- ing the name of the owner of any adjoining pre- liminary acre, for the purpose of purchasing it, or of entering into an agreement with him to erect a party fence.   We therefore request that you will, in the next   Gazette, favour us with a statement of your rea- sons for not publishing the selection of the " pre- liminary" town acres, the Commissioners having led us to expect that an account of all lands purchased would be inserted in the Gazette.

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11, 1837. TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11, 1837. TO OUR READERS. The late appearance of the Gazette has been occasioned by the misconduct of a Jour-   neyman Printer, who has thought proper to desert his employment at the moment while engaged in the process of "making up" or arranging the types for the present number. There is a certain set who have not scorned io tamper in the most scandalous manner with our Printer's servant: but if they have succeeded in enticing him from his duty, they shall not escape the exposure which awaits them for their pitiful and disgraceful conduct. We merely state the fact at present, and trust, with great confidence, to the indulgence of the Public, should any further irregularity in the appearance of the Gazette be occasioned by the unjustifiable proceedinq we have, no- ticed.

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 disre...

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, 8, 1837. 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 serious an outlay. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, OSMOND GILLES. 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 expense, demands. We ought certainly to be prepared against the effects which an obligatory fencing act would produce, were we found desti- tute of the proper means of procuring material, and by being forced into the hands of monopolists, compelled ...

Charge of Capital Felony against S STEPHENS and W. WRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

Charge of Capital Felony against S STE- PHENS and W. WRIGHT. Friday Samuel Stephens, late manager of the South Australian Company, and Wm. Wright, master of a hired cutter, were brought up on a writ of Habeas Corpus before, his Honor Sir J.W. JEFFCOTT,   Chief Judge, who sat in chambers, for the purpose of deciding upon the legality of the warrant under which they had been arrested and brought up from Kangaroo Island by the constable. The warrant was granted by two magistrates, the Hon. Mr. Strangways, and Mr. Steven- son, on affidavits of Captain Blenkinsop and another, charging Stephens with maliciously and feloni- ously firing a pistol loaded with ball into a whale boat belonging to Captain Blenkinsop, in Encoun- ter Bay, with intent to kill a man named Mead; and against Wright for attempting maliciously and feloniously to shoot Captain Blenkinsop by snap- ping a loaded pistol at his breast. Mr. Fisher, Resident Commissioner, appeared professionally on the part of th...

"OUR BIG BROTHER." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

"OUR BIG BROTHER." WE are indebted to the Sydney Colonist for the following important information regarding Messrs FISHER & GOUGER'S newspaper, to which we have been devoted ever since it was disco-                 vered that this journal would neither pander to the miserable vanity of a few silly persons, by reporting harangues of which a pothouse debating society would be ashamed, or dis-- tort facts, to conceal incompetency, or what is worse, to deceive the public. "Active pre- parations," we are told, "are making to ensure the establishment of a free and inde- pendent paper !" Our worthy contemporary, we suspect, is quizzing the whole gang. Here is a query which the simpletons put:— " What salary would an Editor demand for his literary labours, bearing in mind that he will be assisted, in his important duties, by several intel- ligent persons ?" Do they suppose that th...

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 ...

His Majesty expired at His Castle at Windsor, on the morning of the 20th instant, at 12 minutes past two o'clock, to the great affliction of the Royal Family, and of all classes of His Majesty's subjects.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

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 are sorry to hear that the Sir Charles MacCarthy, Duff Master, is 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 ground within two miles from the shore; but that they may now run for the harbour with perfect safety   after calling at Glenelg for d...

SECOND EDITION GAZETTE OFFICE, Saturday, November 18, 1837. REPORTED DISCOVERY OF A FINE OUTLET FROM LAKE ALEXANDRINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

SECOND EDITION GAZETTE OFFICE, Saturday, November 18, 1837. REPORTED DISCOVERY OF A FINE OUTLET FROM LAKE ALEXAN- DRINA. THE community in Adelaide has been thrown into considerable excitement by a report which has been generally circulated that a noble river and harbour connecting Lake Alexandrina with the sea at Encounter Bay, had been discovered. From the enquiry we have made, we can state that a person named Walker, for some years a resident on Kangaroo Island, and who has been an occasional visitant here and at Encounter Bay, arrived from thc latter place about ten days ago, and stated that he, in company with another man, had discovered, twenty-five miles to the south- eastward of the river discovered by Sturt, a fine harbour, into which a river, leading directly from Lake Alexadrina, empties itself. That ships of any size may enter the harbour; and that vessels might lie close upon the banks of the river in four fathoms water, and discharge their cargoes. That the land in ever...
