HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 25 August 1838

HOBART TOWN.   - It would seem, that the Port of Adelaide is not yet under judicious management. The harbour   master, being a salaried officer, permitted the Black Joke to remain outside the pilot ground for several hours without sending a boat, as is usual, to take the Pilot out of her — the consequence is that the gentleman has paid a visit to Launceston, probably unexpectedly—for Capt. Miller not being disposed to waste time to suit the pleasure of the Harbour Master and being unable to spare a boat from his vessel to land the Pilot, filled away his mainyard, and accom- modated him with bed and board. It really must be the case, that persons nominated by the Home Go- vernment to fill situations to these colonies; imagine themselves sinecurists, and are not expected to do any thing else in return for their salaries, than to disarange the duties entrusted to them to discharge faithfully. —Bent's News, June 8. COLONEL ARTHUR.—By a letter, received this mor...

INDIAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 25 August 1838

INDIAN NEWS. - Intelligence was received yesterday of the death of the celebrated Or. Robert Tytler. Tbe worthy doctor was, we hear, on his way to Gavalior, to coo firm by personal observation an interesting scientific discovery which he belived he had made, when be was taken ill.-The Englishman and Military Chro nicle, March 30, 1838. ^ - We are glad to see that Mr. T. H. Gardiner, the secretary to the Australian Society, has come for ward to answer the querulous letter of the passenger by the Emerald Isl», which we published yesterday* There is no use in blinking com plaints like that of the passenger. Silent contempt is not always understood, or fairly interpreted. What is not promptly an swered, i« often regarded as unanswerable, and the very boldness of anonymous statements is too frequent ly received as evidence of their truth. We think Mr, Gardiner's reply very satisfactory, and regret that his exertions in behalf of the Associa tion bave been so scurvily treated by one perso...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 25 August 1838

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. LAUNCESTON.     — Mr. Lawrence has been appointed to the legis-«   lative council, in the room of Mr. Bethune, who has resigned. Every man in the colony who sets a value upon talent, integrity, and political consis- tency, will rejoice with us in this nomination ; while they who, with us, look upon Mr. Lawrence as one whom the envious hatred of authority has in times past proscribed, will see more than common grounds for congratulating the colony on the event. Sir John Franklin may deem himself fortunate that the honour is reserved to his government to with- draw a man like Mr. Lawrence from the retirement of private life ; a retirement, which, we are con- vinced, would still have been the choice of Mr.   Lawrence, had he felt himself at liberty to consult his feelings rather than be guided by his sense of public duty as a citizen. We are too well satisfied at seeing the determination of the government in uni...

MERCHANT SEAMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 September 1838

MERCHANT SEAMEN. THE Commanders of vessels arriving at our Port, are frequently put to great inconvenience and sometimes experience severe loss, in consequence of the seamen absconding. The laxity of the law upon this subject is highly reprehensible, and ?would induce strangers to believe that it -was .the wish of the Government to encourage seamen to leave their ships; as weil as to induce those in terested in the progress of the colony to imagine that it is the desire of our rulers to throw the »greatest discredit npon the port. What can more .fully tend to injure the character of our harbour and excite contempt for its regulations, than the reports of shipmasters, (which will be circulated in alt parts of the world, with all the acrimony that vexation and disappointment are likely to cause,) that fheir seamen were induced to leave their ships at Port Adelaide, and that all the redress they could obtain was, having them placed in cus tody until the ship was about to leave - that !...

SDBVET OF TOE HABBOUE BY COI» LIGHT. IT is with much pleasure we acquaint our readers - that this important work is determined upon, and in a way which we hope will convince the Com missioners of one?*r two fects they appear to be ignorantof. About twenty gentlemen have sub scribed a sum sufficient to cover all the expense (nearly £300; ; they completed their arrange ments on Saturday last, and on Wednesday the Colonel commenced operations. The Colonial Commissioner has placed the Rapid at his dis posal ; her expenses, however, to be paid by the parties subscribing ; and the work, with several water-colour drawings, and with directions for vessels coming up the Gulf, will be completed in about six weeks. The chart will immediately be transmitted to England for publication and of fered to the Commissianers?or sale ; should they refuse to purchase, it will be published for the benefit of those who bore the expense of the survey.

WOOL IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 September 1838

j WOOL IN INDIA. ** With referenceto wool, a market for ¡ts supply has lately been rising into imperta nee, which in this country appears, to have attracted Kttíe attention, al though from the extraordinary and yearly increasing extent of its exported product, it bids fair to rival the largest wool growing countries at no distant period. According to a commercial report in the Bombay papers, lately received to the date of November last, the wool ox ported from thence to. the official year ending the 9th of April previous, already reached to the considerable quantity of 2,444,091 lb. The first exports reported were in 1833, and their pro gress since W 4bus »tated-1833, 69,944lb; 1835, 486.528 ; 1836,1,196,664; 1837,2,444,091. The sheep are described as being pastured, and the wool produced, in those parts of India bordering on the Indus, and of course beyond the British line of ter ritory.

ARRIVAI. OF Câ PTAIN STURT. IT is with the greatest pleasure we announce the safe arrival of Captain STURT in our Colony. Under any circumstances a visit from an indivi dual to whose exertions in the field of geographi cal discovery we as colonists are so much in debted, would have been an interesting eventf but it is much more so when we find that not only the same enterprising spirit distinguishes him, but that it has been again directed for oue benefit. He has brought overland from the Hume river between 400 and 500 head of cattle, andhe performed the journey in little more than three months. Captain STURT is accompanied by Capt. FINNISS, Mr. M'LEOD, Mr. G. STRANG WAYS, and eleven men. At present, but little has transpired of the particulars of the journey, and ^we hear it is the Captain's intention to trans mit his observations to England for publication.

THE ABORIGINES OF PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 September 1838

THE ABORIGINES OF PORT PHILLIP. WE find by the Sydney papers lately received that the natives of Port Phillip have been com mitting alarming depredations. Several persons have been murdered, and others wounded-flocks and herds scattered and destroyed, and lately the inhabitants of Melbourne were even threat ened with an invasion by these poor ignorant creatures. There is no doubt that the inhabi tants of Port Phillip have, by want of prudence in their intercourse with the natives, brought this upon themselves. We rejoice that, as yet, we have not to record any acts of atrocity com mitted by the aborigines of South Australia; and we hope that such cautious measures will be   adopted by our fellow colonists, as may keep our   friendly relations with tbs original proprietors of the soil, firm and unshaken. The residents at Port Phillip bave addressed a memorial to His Excellency, Sir George Gipps, praying   for protection against the incursions of...
