THE RESIDENT COMMISSIONER'S INSTRUCTIONS. By order of the board, ROWLAND HILL, Secretary. By order of the board, ROWLAND HILL, Secretary. "Letter of Instructions by the Colonization Com-   missioners for South Australia, to JAMES HUR-   TLE FISHER, Esq., Resident Commissioner in South Australia. In framing Instructions for your guidance during the exercise of the powers and authorities delegated to you by this board, the Commissioners have deemed it expedient to avoid minute details, and after stating the general principles of action   which it will be your duty to observe, to leave with you a large discretion as respects the man- ner in which these principles shall be carried into effect. Their conduct in this respect has been dictated by the following consideration. It appears to them that subject always to a strict observance of tha principles laid down in the South Australian Act, and in the regulations of the Commissioners, copies of which...

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 Sch...

THE W[?]ALING SEASON [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 November 1837

THE WHALING SEASON IF the past season has not been unprecedently successful, it has not certainly been owing to the scarcity of fish in the waters of South Australia. These have been most abundant; and in one in-               stance, no fewer than forty black whales have been counted from the beach at Glenelg at one time. We have been informed by Captain Blen- kinsop, who commands a large party at Encounter Bay, and is well known to be an experienced whaler, that the whales in that neighbourhood are very numerous. He states that had not the fish- ing been interfered with and harrassed by the injudicious proceedings of the persons connected with the South Australian Company's establish- ment at the bay, and had both parties consented to fish amicably and in concert, they might with great ease have procured 400 tuns each. As it is, Captain Blenkinsop will only ship about 200 tuns. The Siren wen...

ENGLISH NEWS. DEATH OF HIS MAJESTY KING WILLIAM THE FOURTH. WINDSOR CASTLE, June 20, 1837.?— [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

ENGLISH NEWS. DEATH OF HIS MAJESTY KING WILLIAM THE FOURTH. WINDSOR CASTLE, June 20, 1837.— M. J. TIERNEY. WM. FRED. CHAMBERS. DAVID DAVIES. "It has pleased ALMIGHTY GOD to release from his sufferings our most excellent and gracious Sovereign, King WILLIAM the Fourth. "His Majesty expired at twelve minutes past two o'clock, a.m., this day. (Signed)   Shortly after eleven o'clock the great bell of St. Paul's Cathedral began to send forth its solemn tones, conveying the mournful intelligence of the King's death, and the bells of Westminster Abbey and all the principal churches of the metropolis joined in the dismal peal. The Royal Standard floated from several of the public buildings, churches, and shipping in the port of London, half-mast high. As the mournful intelligence was conveyed through the country, every town, village, and hamlet displayed the same signs of mourning, and the same marks of unfeigned respect and affection.

ENCOUNTER BAY, LAKE ALEXANDRINA, AND THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

ENCOUNTER BAY, LAKE ALEXAN- DRINA, AND THE MURRAY. T. BEWES STRANGWAYS. O. GILLES. C. G. EVERARD. Y. B. HUTCHINSON. GEO. STEVENSON, for His Excellency the GOVERNOR, Sir R. DOBSON, ands Miss BAGULLEY. S. BLUNDEN THOS. LIPSON. R. THOMAS. A. F. LINDSAY. P. M. RICHARDSON. THE report mentioned in our last of the discovery by a man named Walker of an outlet from Lake Alexandrina to the sea navigable for ships we have every reason now to believe is inaccurate— at least to the extent indicated by that report. The only outlet from the lake to the sea yet known is that discovered by Captain STURT, although a most important addition to our know- ledge of its extent has just been made by Messrs. STRANGWAYS and HUTCHINSON, who spent nearly   fourteen days in exploring the southern part of the lake, and by Mr. ROBERT COCK, an enter- prising settler, who with a small party, has been the first to reach the Murray directly from Ade- laide, and to determine the northern boundaries &a...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1837. This court was opened to day for the first time at eleven. It possesses a jurisdiction in all cases of debt not exceeding £20, and is empowered to de-     cide all disputes between master and servant, cases of trespass, misdemeanours, and petty offences. After the usual formalities were gone through, the first business heard was: 1. A complaint by the master of the Lady Emma against six of the crew for desertion. After hearing the evidence, which fully established the fact that the men had left the ship without the     master's permission and in violation of their arti- cles, the magistrate sentenced the men to thirty days imprisonment with hard labour. 2. This next case created considerable interest. Captain Hurst, the master of the Lady Emma, complained against Dr. Edward Wright, medical     officer to the survey, for an assault. Captain Hurst dep...

ACCESSION OF QUEEN VICTORIA TO THE THRONE OF GREAT BRITAIN. Arrival at Saint James's Palace. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

ACCESSION OF QUEEN VICTORIA TO THE THRONE OF GREAT BRITAIN. Arrival at Saint James's Palace. The Queen arrived on Wednesday morning, shortly before ten o'clock, in a carriage and four, accompanied by the Duchess of Kent, and attended by several of the officers of her household, at St. James's Palace. Her Majesty was dressed in deep mourning, and upon her arrival she was received by most of the members of the royal family, the various officers of the household, the ministers of state, and other persons of rank. The Proclamation. The ceremonial of her Proclamation was fixed to take place at ten o'clock. At an early hour, the approaches to the avenues of the palace, were crowded to excess with groups of ladies and gen- tlemen, several of whom were in deep mourning. In front of the great gates leading into St. James's Street, the crowd which had collected early to see   the procession come forth was greater, according to the statements of the tradesmen in that part of the t...

TO CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

TO CORRESPONDENCE. The Colonist's letter to the Resident Commis- sioner in our next. We agree with him that it is perfectly disgraceful that no public notice of the mem- bers or description of the Emigrants * has been given; and that the Colonists need not expect     fair play while the secret system lasts. The question       of No Joker is natural enough; but if the report in   question be incorrect it is because it did not go far   enough. Mr. McLaren's letter and a variety of     letters and articles are unavoidably postponed until our next.

no thing but the public good. With this view   I have hitherto deprecated such a discussion and I now find myself in this very embarrassing po-   sition, when called upon to do so by an imperative     cause of duty, that I shall—in my capacity of   member of council, (in which capacity I am bound   by an oath to advise his Excellency, when re- quired by him, as I now am, to do so)—be giving   an opinion upon a subject upon which I may pos- sibly, be also called upon to pronounce a solemn decision from the bench in my capacity of judge.   This necessity I should willingly have avoided; but, called upon as I am, and feeling that it is absolutely necessary towards the carrying on of the govern- ment that I should give my opinion, I do so consci- entiously, after mater reflection and to the best of my judgement, but I repeat with con- siderable regret that the necessity should have   arisen.

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1838. TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1838. TO OUR READERS. The only apology we have to offer to our subscribers and friends for the long interval between the last and present publication is the fact already known to them of the absconding of a journeyman in the employment of our printers. The impossibility of supplying his place, and of publishing this journal was no doubt calculated upon by the persons who en- ticed the young man from his engagement. They have, however, been but artially suc- cessful; and we can now promise that the   Gazette shall appear regularly in future.

FIRST COMMEMORATION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. PUBLIC DINNER TO THE GOVERNOR.

A PLAN FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SCHOOLS IN THE NEW COLONY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

A PLAN FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SCHOOLS IN THE NEW COLONY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA The present extent and consolidation of the British empire is a subject of astonishment, to every reflecting mind. Doubtless, it has been bestowed by the Great Ruler of the princes of   the earth for some wise and benevolent purpose,   which the mild and liberal character of our con-     stitution and government is so well adapted to accomplish, and has already in some measure exercised a happy influence over the most remote places of the globe. When viewed in relation to the Divine Govern- ment, extensive dominion 0n earth involves in it great responsibility. Its power for good or evil must one day be accounted for; and its dura- bility will probably be in the ratio of its usefulness to the human race. The past history of nations affords the most affecting spectacle of abused power and retributive justice; and why should this nation expect a better late, ...

DOGS To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 January 1838

DOGS To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, A DOGOWNER. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, A LAND PURCHASER. SIRS—The advertisement in the Gazette offer-   ing a reward for the destruction of native dogs, induces me to trouble you with a few remarks on the subject of other dogs. It is not only from native dogs, that we have to fear injury from our     flocks, but if something be not done to check the rapid increase of dogs generally, we have more to apprehend from emigrant dogs. It is my firm belief that there are at this time more dogs than men in the colony. In a neighbouring colony, owing to the neglect of stockkeepers, dogs in- creased to such an alarming extent that they used to hunt the flocks in packs, and I heard of a man being attacked by thirtern at once, and saving himself by getting up a tree. At a meeting of the landholders they imposed a tax on their own dogs, to form a fund for the d...
