GEOLOGY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 June 1841
GEOLOGY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER. GENTLEMEN— The season for resuming my geological ramblings being at hand, I intend, through the medium of your valuable journal, to inform the public of the results of my researches, in a series of letters addressed to you. Out as 1 slia.l haw often to refer to the lists of minerals contained in the South Australian Almanack fot 181!, 1 think it necessary to indicate previously their geological occurrence, uud arcjuaiut you with tliosi- parts of South Australia 1 have visited hitherto. I began my wanderings in Kangaroo Island, which I considered to Imve been connected with the main-land at Cape Jtrvis, and cut off by the working of the sea, leaving the Pages remaining. The formation ot mica ?late, from Mount Lofty eoiith-castward, continues, indeed, all along the southern coast ot Kangaroo Island, which con firms my opinion. There bad been two inlands joined together by au accumulation of sand and lime in t...
COLONEL GAWLER'S DEBTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 June 1841
COLONEL GAWLER'S DEBTS. The following official intimation, confirmatory of our announcement last week, has been pub-&lt;*> lished. We trust the colonists will see in it a proof of the considerate anxiety of Governor G:cy to do all in his power to remedy tbe difficulties into which their easy confidence in Colonel Guwler lias plunged them. We havo good reason for believing and stating that the arrangements which have been contemplated by the Home Government, with regard to these obligations, and towards South Australia irres pective of them, are likely to be oo a scale of liberality which will shortly permit his Excel lency to have the gratification of redeeming every just obligation of his predecessor:— Government Uotice—His Excellency Governor Grey, finding that there are unpaid claims against the Locul Government to a large amount, which were incurred previously to bis Excellency's •nival, has directed it to be notified tbat be much regrets that he has at present no fun...
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 June 1841
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. We continue to-day the publication of the valuable returns of the extent of land under cultivation. It is necessary particularly to observe, that these returns aro for the year 1640. When the returns for the prcrent season are completed, we shall be able to exhibit the progress of 1841 —a progress, we venture to say now, from the evidence already accumulated, far more aston ishing anJ gratifying than it possible fur the most sanguine friend of South Australia to imagine. ANOTHER ATTACK OF THE NATIVES. Intelligence reached town yesterday that a party of natives had attacked the shepherds at | Mr Outton's station, at Mount Dispeuion, and after dangerously wounding one of them, had driven off about eight hundred sheep. An other shepherd, with nine hundred bheep in charge, had been missing three days, supposed to have been killed by the blacks. Application was made to the Governor yes* tcrday, fur the assistance of the mounted po lice ; but in consequence of nea...

The South Australian Rergister. ADELAIDE : SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1841. FAREWELL TO COLONEL GAWLER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 June 1841
The South Australian Rergister. ADELAIDE : SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1841. FAREWELL TO COLONEL GAWLER. COLONEL GAWLER landed in South Australia in October 1838, and he leaves it on Monday nest—having administered its affairs as Go- &nbsp; vernor and Resident Commissioner, about two years and seven months. The immediate cause of his dismissal, among the many that were in operation towards that end, was his excessive expenditure. In the brief period of his government Colonel Gawler spent nearly THREE Hundred and Twenty &nbsp; Thousand Pounds—or somewhat more than Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand pounds be- yond the actual revenues of the province, and One Hundred and Twenty Thousand pounds' &nbsp; &nbsp; above the sum he knew to be remaining at the disposal of the Colonization Commissioners, upon whose Treasurer his drafts were issued. It appears now to be satisfactorily established that Colonel Gawler possessed no warrant for the expenditure of those sums, but ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 June 1841
PORT PHILLIP. The Countress, Venus, Speculator, and Medora had been raffled for by sixty members at ten pounds each, and won by Messrs Woolley, Budrill Kennedy, and Hunter. Highway robberies were of frequent occurrence near Melbourne. Numerous robberies had taken place, and the police report of the Herald states that there were only half a dozen cases of drunkards at the Police Office on the morning of the 12th instant. The mail had been robbed by bushrangers near &nbsp; Yass. The blacks had attacked and carried away five hundred sheep belonging to Mr Bennett, and wounded a shepherd named Slatbery. In the Supreme Court, Judge Willis expressed &nbsp; detestation of the " sharp practice" system. His Honor Mr Justice Willis, had taken his seat as Chairman of the Quarter sessions. Mr Simpson had resigned the office of Police Magistrate at Melbourne, in consequence of some official misunderstanding with his Excel- lency the Governor respecting the blacks &nbsp; Th...
TO THE COLONISTS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 19 June 1841
TO THE COLONISTS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Fellow Colonists—Your prospects are suffi- ciently discouraging, but they are not hopeless. You are suffering the natural consequences which a course of ill government necessarily inflicts on the resources, the industry, and the prosp«rity of mankind. You hare been deceived—palpably and grossly deceived—but you are beginning to awake to a conviction of the fact. Fancying yourselves in a state of unexampled and growing prosperity, while every resource by which your permanent advantage should have been secured was licing lavished away iv useless offices —in public works which neither the wauts nor position of lite colony could justify—and in a course of general expenditure as profuse us it was unau thorised—you have been made the victims of a love of display—you have snatched at the shadow, and have lost the substance. The wealth which wot Id have steadily accrued from the first and wise administration of your affairs, is dissipated. True, much has...
