The South Australian Register ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1841. RECAL OF COLONEL GAWLER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 April 1841

The South Australian Register ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1841. RECAL OF COLONEL GAWLER. By the arrival of the Fox yesterday from Van Diemen's Land, we have English news down to the 16th December. The event of most immediate interest to our readers is the recal of Colonel GAWLER, and the appointment, in his place, of Captain GEORGE GREY, the esteemed and scientific explorer. It it not, we hope, expected, that under such circumstances we should continue controversial discussions in reference to past events—much less that anything should be said by us at the present moment in exposition of what we conceive to be the political errors of our late Governor. The expiation is sufficiently ample, and we have no personal feelings to gratify. The following extracts from the Colonial Gazette of November 4th, and the Spectalor of November 7th, will convey to our readers all the information received on the subject :— Colonel Gawler, the Governor of South Aus- tralia, whose lavish expenditure ha...

PROGRGSS OF COLONIZATION.—THE FALKLAND ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 April 1841

PROGRGSS OF COLONIZATION.—THE FALKLAND ISLANDS. WE have been obligingly favored with a pamphlet published by Ridgway, in reference to the colonization of the Falkland Islands. The author, G. T. Whitington, Esq. is evi- dently well acquainted with the subject, and thoroughly impressed with an idea of the great capabilities which these islands possess for the settlement of a British community on their shores, as well as of the advantages that would result from their occupation in commercial and military points of view. Mr Whitington has given a very clear, and as it appears to us, an   impartial account of the islands; and his pub- lication altogether, is one of considerable interest. The following tables, which Mr Whiiington has inserted, shew the amazing increase of emigration to the islands and British settlements in the Pacific. In the shipping list it is gra- tifying to observe that the young province of South Australia exhibits no mean figure in comparison with the ...

LOSS OF THE BRIG "AUSTRALIA," BY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 April 1841

LOSS OF THE BRIG "AUSTRALIA," BY FIRE. The following particulars of the destruction of this fine brig have been obligingly communi- cated to us by a passenger:— The Australia, commanded by Captain Yule, left the port of Leith on the 2nd of Oc- tober last, having on board twenty-eight individual, fifteen of whom were passengers. After a pleasant voyage she arrived at Rio. which place she left in the commencement of December, and continued her voyage to this place. On the evening of December 29th, about eight o'clock, when six hundred miles to the westward of the Cape, one of the ladies directed the Captains attention to an unusual   smell, and in a few minutes afterwards the ship was ascertained to be on fire in the lower hold. For three hours every effort was made to subdue the fire, but the flames at last burst out with great fury, and rendered all attempts to save the ship useless. The long boat and jolly boat were then launched and provided   with stores...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 April 1841

TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. GENTLEMEN—Among the wonders that occur in our political world, the grand address by the respectability of the province to his Excellency the other day seems one of the greatest. As I am a humble individual who cannot be expected to understand these mysteries, perhaps you would enlighten me a little. Permit me; therefore to ask a few questions. Query 1 — How does it happen that our Governor, who values himself so much upon consistency, gave an order in refer- ence to the address on the Milmenrura case, that no Government officer should sign it, and that those who had signed should erase their names, on the principle, that no person connected with Government should express an opinion relative to political events, and that in this case not only all or most of the Government officers have signed the address but nineteen of the forty-three parties named in the Southern Australian as the deputation who presented it, are in the employ- ment ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 3 April 1841

PORT PHILLIP. MAJOR SIR T. L. MITCHELL—We perceive by the late Sydney newspapers that Major Sir Thomas   Livingston Mitchell, the talented Surveyor Gene-   ral of New South Wales, has returned to the   colony by the Mary Bannatyre, after a passage of four months and a week. From other sources we learn that Sir Thomas put the finishing stroke to   his great work the plans of the battles in Spain   and Portugal, which has occupied him almost en- tirely for nearly two years. Sir Thomas returns to Australia determined to devote his best ener- gies to the service of the colony, with this view he had brought with him from England the most useful works in civil engineering and farming— also a series of models of a new and simple con-   struction of bridges, roofs, &c., which he procured at considerable expense from Germany. Sir Thomas, we rejoice to find, is full of plans of dams, &c., as he consi...

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1841. STATE AND PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. The political changes which have just been announced seem to indicate a fitting season for a few observations on the pre-   sent state and future prospects of the Colony. Of all the points on which public anxiety is most on the stretch, or which so di- rectly involves public and private credit, that of the payment at maturity of Go- vernor Gawler's dishonored bills stands the foremost. The announcement in our last, that the Lords of the Treasury had determined to recal Governor Gawler, is fully confirmed by more recent advices ; and it is this circumstance, we think, which, in the absence of official informa- tion, ought to satisfy every one that the ultimate honor of Governor Gawler's drafts had been determined upon. The same view is taken by Mr McLaren, late Manager of the South Australian Com- pany, in a letter recently addressed by him to the Sydney Herald. After st...

THE MOORGATE-STREET SWINDLE. We have to apologise to our readers for the space occupied with the details of the final bursting of the Moorgate-street bub-   ble; but as we were the first to direct public attention to the cheat, and were the means of its exposure, we thought it right to give the result at more than or- dinary length. Charles Houchor, the Australian accom- plice in the concern, arrived in Adelaide, from Hobart Town, on Tuesday. On Thursday afternoon he was arrested on a charge of swindling, and obtaining money under false pretences, under a warrant granted by the Resident Magistrate. Boucher is to be brought up for examina- tion to-day, at eleven o'clock; and we shall take care that our readers be fully advised of the proceedings.

SEIZURE OF THE VILLE DE BORDEAUX. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

SEIZURE OF THE VILLE DE BORDEAUX. I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, For ROBT. R. TORRENS, Collector H. M's. Customs, JOHN BUNKIN. Custom-house, Feb. 11th, 1841. The unaccountable folly which has cha-   racterised the whole of the disgraceful and arbitrary proceedings connected with the seizure of the French merchant ship, might form a subject for ridicule were not its consequences likely to prove ruinously expensive to the colony. We cannot really bring ourselves to believe that the Governor has countenanced so gross a violation of all international law, or is aware of the fearful amount of loss he is heaping upon the individuals con- nected with the ship, or upon the colo- nists, who, in the end, must be the suf- ferers. What is the most discreditable feature of the whole case is the fact that no one knows why the vessel has been seized. It is the pleasure of the Customs' Officers, and there the matter rests. We have been requested to publish the fol- lowing lett...

CRISIS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 April 1841

CRISIS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We had selected numerous extracts from the latest papers having reference to the financial condition of the colony conse-   quent upon the unauthorised proceedings of Colonel Gawler; but we are reluc- tantly compelled to omit them for the present, leaving only the following articles on the subject from the Spectator and the Colonial Gazette, which, we are sure, will be eagerly and profitably read :— THE JEOPARDY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (From the Spectator, Nov. 1st.) During the considerable time that has elapsed since we last paid attention to south Australia in   the Spectator, the colony has been placed in a dangerous position, through the mismanagement of its civil governments. The present Governor, Colonel Gawler, was sent out with instructions   limiting his yearly expenditure to £12,000; with an extraordinary credit, in case of unforeseen emergencies, of £5,000. Colonel Gawler has   neglected those inst...
