TRINITY CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

TRINITY CHURCH. WE understand that the contract for the erection of the above Church has been accepted by Mr. John White, builder; so that there is every pros-   pect of the building being completed in the course     of a few months. It cannot but be a subject of regret to all the friends of religion that the in- tentions of the Church Committee in London, who sent out a frame building with a view to the immediate erection of a place of worship on its   arrival, have been completely frustrated owing to the flimsy materiel provided by the contractor. After an outlay of nearly £500 on the building itself, its freight to Australia, and its conveyance to Adelaide, it now appears that it is not worth the additional expence of erection; so that the Trustees have considered it advisable to erect a stone building, instead of incurring thereby a debt of about £300 towards the discharge of which it is hoped every friend to the cause will con...

To the Editors of the. South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. GENTLEMAN—I beg permission to make a few remarks on certain subjects mentioned in the last Colonial Register. In the first place I differ from you "in toto" with respect to our obtaining X. Q. Z. our country land as soon us you would persuade us   to hope. The plan, I believe, which is being acted   on is to map out the country and let us select our sections from the paper, the boundaries not being marked on the land until afterwards; so   that a person riding over the country to ascertain the most desirable sections has no power of noting at the time the numbers of them. It is noto- rious that the Surveyors generally do not work hard, in fact very little (with a few exccptions); several of them may be seen day after day in Adelaide apparently with nothing to do. It was   said by a gentleman from Sydney, who has some   idea of settling here if he can...

SHIPWRECKS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

SHIPWRECKS. WE regret exceedingly to record the shipwreck of no less than three vessels --the Sir Charles Macarthy, Duff, South Australian, MacFarlane, and Solway, Pearson. The Sir Charles Macarthy anchored in what we would call the unsafe part of Glenelg roads, i.e. too near the beach and out of the   good holding ground. This was no doubt done for the purpose of landing her cargo with greater ease and expedition; and the result   has been that the cargo has been saved, but the ship was caught in a gale from the south- west, in November last, drove from her anchors, and was run on shore. We un-   derstand that, without any application to the proper authorities, a survey took place, and the ship was condemned and sold. The hull was purchased by Mr. S. Stephens, and, in a few days after the sale, was got off with very little damage and is now anchored in Nepean Bay. An enquiry into the circumstances attendant upon the loss of this brig ought to ...

MEETING OF LANDHOLDERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

MEETING OF LANDHOLDERS. ON the 23rd December meeting of owners and agents of owners of preliminary sections was held at the Commissioner's office; Mr. FISHER, Resident Commissioner, took the chair. After some discussion the following reso- lutions were carried unanimously :— 1st—That that part of the regula- tions under which the preliminary purchases were made, particularly in reference to the mode of selecting those purchases, be read. 2nd—That the Resident Commissioner be re- quested to call at his earliest convenience a meet- ing of the proprietors of the preliminary land orders or their agents for the purpose of determin- ing the order in which they shall be entitled to select their country sections. Mr. Brown moved the following resolution which was seconded by Mr. S. Stephens:— That it is the opinion of this meeting that the colonial government cannot order the reserva- tion of any land at the harbour for government purposes beyond the four acres already reserved for public p...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. JANUARY 20, 1838. THE SURVEY. A NEW PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. JANUARY 20, 1838. THE SURVEY. A NEW PROPOSITION. "WHAT are the Surveyors about.? "When are we to have our land?" are the questions which meet us at every turn, and truly we cannot wonder that the settlers who purchased two years and a half ago, and who have been in the colony a twelve month and upwards, with their families and servants frittering away their means, should occasionally exhibit marks of impatience at the sluggish progress of the survey. It is a bad sign, we admit, that neither the Colonial Commissioner nor the Surveyor General ventures to make a report on the subject to the colonial Govern- ment or to the public. We have formerly expressed our belief that if ordinary diligence were observed the preliminary country sections   would be ready by June. We have no reason to alter that opinion although it is asserted that, at present not a single country section has been actually measured off, and that even the mapping down the c...

To His Excellency. Adelaide, January 1, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

To His Excellency. Adelaide, January 1, 1838. We have the honor to inform your Excellency that, in pursuance of our intention to ascertain if there were any other outlet from Lake Alexan- drina than the one discovered by Captain Sturt (for which object your Excellency was pleased to grant us leave of absence), we arrived at Cap- tain Blenkinsop's fishery, opposite Granite Island in Encounter Bay, on the afternoon of December 1. We succeeded in bringing a bullock cart, although, drawn but by two bullocks, the whole way; but the hills were so rugged and precipitous and the   ravines so deep at the southern extremity of the Mount Lofty range that we were sometimes obliged to unload the cart, and all of us a te-   ther rope fastened to the pole to assist the bullocks in dragging up the empty cart,which we only ef- fected by a few yards at a time, and then after- wards carry up our provisions, &c., ourselves. This explanation of the bullock cart we deem ...

JOURNAL OF AN EXCURSION FROM ADELAIDE TO THE RIVER MURRAY AND LAKE ALEXANDRINA DECEMBER, 1837. BY ROBERT COCK, WM. FINLAYSON, A. WYATT, AND G. BARTON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

JOURNAL OF AN EXCURSION FROM ADELAIDE TO THE RIVER MURRAY AND LAKE ALEXANDRINA DECEM- BER, 1837. BY ROBERT COCK, WM. FINLAYSON, A. WYATT, AND G. BAR- TON. Monday, December 25.-Having provided our-   selves with provisions for eight days, a packhorse to carry them, and a blanket for each of the party, we set off from Adelaide at eight A.M., and reached the summit of the Mount Lofty range near that hill about twelve. The scenery in many parts of this range is very grand. Many of the ravines are covered with timber of large growth of the kind called stringy bark, two of which, on mea- surement, we found in circumference to be 36 and 40½ feet. The sides of many of the hills seem well adapted for vineyards. About six miles fur- ther we arrived at rather a curious spring. The grass around had grown very thick, and the spring   had attained an elevation of about four feet above the level of the ground, with a circumference at the base of fifty feet. Water was got ...

VICTORIA HARBOUR?—ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

VICTORIA HARBOUR—ENCOUNTER BAY. Your obedient humble Servant, THOMAS LIPSON, Naval Officer and Harbour Master. His Excellency Captain HINDMARSH, R.N. SPECULATION is busy as to the effect likely to be produced by the discovery of a good har- bour in Encounter Bay, and the consequence   opening up of many thousand miles of inland navigation which that discovery ensured. We have only space in this number to refer our   readers to the report of Messrs Strangways and Hutchinson. The following extract from a letter written by Captain Crozier of H.M.S. Victor, and the report of Captain Lipson, R.N., Navel Officer of the provice, show that Vic- toria Harbour is much more safe and extensive   than has been represented. But in   our next the whole subject shall be fully con- sidered. Extract of a letter from Captain Crozier, H.M.S. Victor, at anchor in Victoria Harbour, Encounter Bay. This really appears a splendid harbour, with an outer roadstead, or sound, which I ...

ADELAIDE RACES. (Communicated.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 January 1838

ADELAIDE RACES. (Communicated.) The establishment of races in Adelaide produced what we suppose must be called "a great sen-   sation;" inasmuch as about 800 persons were assembled to witness the first amusement, and at least half that number on the second. Booths for refreshments and dancing were erected, and every attention was paid to render the affair worthy of those fond of the sport, which was ex- cellent. Among the company present on both   days we observed the Honorable Mr. Fisher, Co- lonial Commissioner, Colonel Light, John Mor- phett, Esq.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 February 1838

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) In the founding of a colony upon new and there-   fore untried principles, nothing could surely have been more inauspicious than the intestine broils which from the commencement have distinguished the settlement of the royal province of South Aus- tralia. Doubtful at best as is the success of the new colony, the public opinion at home is at all events indispensable to its prosperous progression; and had it been the design of its founders to defeat their own objects in this respect they could not have devised ways and means of doing so more effectually than have been furnished them in the proceedings of their local govern- ment—a government which we once likened to that of Sancho Panza in Barataria, but as we now find with considerable injustice to that half- witted personage. We have taken some pains to arrive at the merits of the South Australian broils; and having had   opportunities of acquiring ma...

LOSS OF THE SCHAH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 February 1838

LOSS OF THE SCHAH. We regret to hear of the loss off Ramhead, on the 20th December, of the Schah, which left Sydney in that month for Port Phillip and South Australia. This vessel has been rather anxiously expected for some days as letters are in town   stating that she had been run away with from   Sydney by Mr. Raine, sen., and a power of attor- ney from the owners to seize and detain her on arrival had been forwarded to Mr. Barnard, mer- chant, here. Mr. Raine, sen., however, has fallen a victim, and along with him have perished Mr. Thomas Dean, Mr. Shephard, Miss Brown, Miss Tyrell, Mrs. Toby, Mrs. Jennings, Mrs. Williams and child, and Thomas Brown, sen. A letter from Mr. Milligen, who commanded the schooner, to Mr. A. Merrison, Hobart Town, says—"Mr. Raine having shut himself in a small   cabin in the top gallant forecastle, shut the door, and could not open it again. I was compelled to leave him to his fate as the decks had been clean sw...

"COPY OF A LETTER TO COLONEL TORRENS. "Adelaide. August 28,1837. "SIR—We cannot allow Mr. GOUGER to relin-   quish his situation of Colonial Secretary of this province without expressing our deep feeling of regret that he should so summarily have been sus- pended from an office which he has filled with a degree of zeal and ability which few could have surpassed, and without expressing the sincere respect and esteem we feel for his character.   "In looking forward to the future we strongly   feel that the loss to the public service of one so well qualified to assist in carrying forward the great principles upon which this colony has been formed must greatly retard the rapid progress which it has hitherto made; and further, that the security and confidence we have felt that the best measures would be adopted for the public benefit have been much lessened by the treatment of one   who has laboured so much and so unremittingly for the ...

SCAB IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 February 1838

SCAB IN SHEEP. The following observations on this destructive disease are taken from a valuable little work, just published, entitled, the "Mountain Shepherd's Manual." The mode of treatment recommended by the author has been very successful:— It is probable, says the writer, that more than one disease goes under the name of scab; and that while in one case the skin merely is affected, in others the disease may be constitutional. It sel- dom appears among sheep which have been smeared with a salve in which tar is an ingredient;   and when it does it proceeds most probably from   contact with a diseased animal, a stone, trees, or paling, against which scabbed sheep have rubbed themselves, or lying on a spot where they may have rested. Sheep that have been poorly fed and suffered to get into low condition are most liable to be affected; and it is probable that this is one of the chief causes of the disease breaking out. A sheep is never even slightly affected...
