THE South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 18[?]. PROGRESS OF THE COLONYSPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 August 1839

THE South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 1839. PROGRESS OF THE COLONY SPECIAL SURVEYS. We have this week to announce that another Special Survey of fifteen thousand acres has been taken, in the name of Mr. Robert Cock, land agent, but of which Mr. John Warren, Mr. W. Ferguson, and several other of our best practical agriculturists are holders of large portions. The locality of this survey is on Currency Creek, near the outlet of the Murray     from the lake, one of the very best tracts in the Encounter Bay District, and only ten miles   distant from that important station. ln the list of special surveys which we published a fortnight ago, we only brought down the num-   ber taken to the end of June. To show how- over that we are not standing still, we now print the special surveys taken since that period—the whole number since the 1st, January last being thirty .— Special Surveys from 1st July, to 23rd August. ...

"THE COLONY" AND "THE BUSH." "Whal's in a name?"-SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 24 August 1839

"THE COLONY" AND "THE BUSH." "What's in a name?" —SHAKSPEARE. ALTHOUGH "the rose by any other name might smell as sweet, we contend that in what affects our opinons and sentiments, and forms   the links in our associations, "names" have their influences, and these, too, of no incon-   siderable import. This Shandean bias, in our       philosophy calls us to object to the use of the     term "colony" as applied to the land we live             in. Officially, it is a good name; but there       being nothing of home or domestic life in its       simplification, it tends to foster a sense of         strangeism which it would be well to avoid.       Were all wise as the "busy bee" with mi-     grates to ext...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 August 1839

TO CORRESPONDENTS. Captain Marlin's letter in our next. We regard to be obliged to omit the notice of Mr. Stephen's work on South Australia, and his refutation of Mr. James' farrago till our next. The case of Mr. Mitchell is not the only one of the sort that has come to our knowledge. We thank our Hobart Town correspondent for the particulars of the Court of Honor. He is mistaken as to Sir John Franklin's introduction of   the individual mentioned, to the late Governor. Sir   John stated that he did not personally know anything of the young man, and gave no guarantee for his good conduct.

ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 August 1839

ENCOUNTER BAY. WE regret extremely to learn that the fishery at Encounter Bay has been broken up for the season by an untoward circumstance, at the very moment it was in full operation, and with every promise of ample success. The facts, so for as we have been able to ascertain them, aro as follows :— A few weeks ago it was reported to Mr. John Dutton, chief head-man of the party now whaling at Granite Island, Encounter Bay, that a party of the men had determined to abscond, and to stave the oil before they went. In consequence of this, a watch was stationed, and two men taken into custody, who came down on the oil flat at night without being able to give any account of themselves. On subsequent information the same night, Mr. Dutton went down to the men's huts, and ordered the men out of bed, and tying their hands behind them, fastened them all to a chain, in doing which it is stated he struck some of them. Some of the men got themselves free from the chain, and went down to the re...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 31 August 1839

NEW SOUTH WALES. THE accounts from New South Wales received by the Frenk are of rather a serious description. The prices of every description of fool most enormously high, more so than they have been for upwards of twenty years past, and the distress of teh laboring population is conse- quently great. Whether this is merely the effect of speculation, or caused by an actual want of provisions, we know not. We subjoin   a few extracts frow the latest papers :— On Tuesday, the town was in a state of alarming excitement at the immense rise which flour took to £70 a ton! The prices asked on   that day were 70s. a hundred for fine, 60s. for second, and 55s. for ration, flour; and it is stated that a further rise will take place before the week closes. Bread has consequently risen to the alarming price of fourteen pence the two- pound loaf, which places this essential article out of the reach of the working classes, to a great extent. The usual substitutes have al...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1839. THE LAST GAZETTE. The hon. Robert Gouger, Colonial Secre-   tary, is appointed a Justice of the Peace for the Province. Thomas Taylor, Esq. is appointed by the Governor, a Notary Public for the Province.     THE TORRENS.—The public ought to be cautious in crossing the river in its present state. Crossing by trees is dangerous; and the fords, from the strength of the current, and the shifting nature of the bottom, are also unsafe. By the bridge is therefore the safest and easiest manner of crossing. The Colonizasion Commissioners have ap- pointed Mr. W. Broomhead to be Surgeon- Superintendent-general, residing in London. Boyle Travers Finniss, Esq. is appointed Deputy Surveyor-general for the province, by the Resident Commissioner. The Supreme Court sits on Monday, for the trial of issues joined in Civil Cases.

LATES ENGLISH NEWS. By the Somersetshire we have news from Eng-   land to the middle of April. We give a few extracts:— The Surveyor-General of South Australia (Lieut. Frome, R.E.) has postponed his de- parture until the 1st May, when he intends pro-c eeding by the Rocovery. —Colonial Gazette. In the House of Commons, on Tuesday, March 26, Mr. Ward presented a petition from John Lotimer, of Paisley, complaining of the delay which had taken place in the sale of allotments of land in the colony of South Australia, and praying that means might be adopted for preventing such delays in future. Some idea of the extent of the commercial transactions between England and the Australasian colonies may be formed from the fact of there being in the Post-office list, for the present month, no fewer than nineteen vessels announced for   their various ports; and, besides these, we are aware of several others being similarly employed.   —Colonial Gazette, Apri...
