THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 8 February 1839

THE SURVEY. We have long been of of opinion, that the system under which the surveys of South Australia are conducted is the worst, the least efficient,-and the most expensive that could have been adopted. Our conviction nugments daily, thatif the whole emigrationl fund is not to be swallowed tip in thenost of surveying the land which ought to produce anrd augment It, an alteration must speedily be mnade, and the whole department placed on a different footing. It is almostincredible-but the fact is staring us in the face that though the surveyors have been in the colony for nearly twoa years and a half-since August. Is36--the pre. liminary surveys are not yet completed; nay, that in several districts they are not even begun I We have formerly stated that the expenses of the survey alonle have consumed nearly if not entirely every shilling whlolh the sale of 'the land has produced-we repeat that statement here,; and althoughi the survey is proeeding under its present direetion and ur...

IMPORTATION OF STOCK OVERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 8 February 1839

IMIPORTATION OF STOCK OVERLAND. ltecunt letters from Sydney speak of importations of stock overland to South Australia being contemplated on a large scale. We Iha'e reason to believe that more than one herd of fioc cattle at this moment is within less than five week's Jotrney of Adelaide i and, in all probablllty. our frmencr calculations of the numbers expected to arrive during the present serson will turn out to have been con. siderahly under.rated. It is certain, therefore. that the presentextravngant pt ices demtanded.forstock and butchers meat will be soon reduced. The practicabilnty of inlortitg sheep by land lias of late been a good deal discussed ; ani althoughr both Mr tawdon and Mr eyre are of opinion that it :can be accomplished with :ease and safety, and have resolved to make the attempt, some persona interested no doubt adversely in some shape or other, have been ?ound to assert its impossibility, and perhaps have en hdeavoured to dissuade lhe owners of flocks in the ou...
