COMMUNICATION OF CAPTAIN STURT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 8 September 1838
COMMUNICATION OF CAPTAIN STU KT. J Everything emanating from a mind like that of Captain STTJRT'S we consider to be pnblic pro perty, and we have therefore no hesitation in gratifying our readers by the insertion of his . communication to the Acting-Governor. The name of Captain STURT must be ever closely connected with the establishment of South Aus tralia as a province of the empire, and it will be impossible hereafter to advert to the formation and success, of the Colony without reverting to the admirable conduct of an enterprise which .yields to none, whether in the splendid results of which it was die precursor, or in those qualities of mind which ensured its successful termination under difficulties of no ordinary nature. The names of WAKEFIELD arid of STURT must be mlways connected by the true South Australian, and remembered with the gratitude which is due . for services rendered to the country of our birth. The welcome with which Capt. STURT has been greeted will convince h...
ARRANGEMENTS TO RECEIVE HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 8 September 1838
ARRANGEMENTS TO RECEIVE HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. THE Speculator sailed on the 5th May, the Afri caine vas then on the point of sailing; and it was understood, that the Pestonjee Bomanjee was adver tised for the 10th May, and would sail on the 20th that month, with his Excellency Col. Gawler and suite. In the course of the ensuing fortnight, the «nival of his Excellency may with confidence be expected. We suggest therefore that a public meeting should be immediately held, to make arrangements for the reception of the new Gover nor, in a manner worthy of the representative of our Queen. We earnestly desire that all political differences may, on taking such a step, be forgot ten, and that his Excellency may be convinced by the hearty unanimity of the feeling with which we receive him, that our love for Old England and her constitution has not diminished ; and that in no colony of the crown could more loyal subjects of the Queen be found, than in the latest; and not the least lovely...

THE ARRIVAL OF THE "SPECULATOR." [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 8 September 1838
THE ARRIVAL OF THE " SPECULATOR." THE Speculator sailed on the 5th May, and we have been favoured with a few numbers of the South Australian Record, from which extracts will be found in anothor part of our paper. A highly eulogistic character of our new Governor is insert ed in the 7th number, and we trust that the pro vince will, under his paternal sway, forget those unhappy dissentions which had their origin in the arbitrary and impolitic rule of his predecessor. We wish, however, that the praise which has been awarded to His Excellency, had been more con &nbsp; nected with his conduct in the cabinet, than re ferable to his exploits in the "tented field." &nbsp; Laurels won at Badajoz, Vittoria, Nive, Nivelle, Orthes, Toulouse; and Waterloo, well and nobly &nbsp; earned as we know them to have been, and forci bly as they appeal to every English breast, are nevertheless but inefficient tests of that capacity for government with which as colonists we are chie...

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. Quid verum atque decens euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum --HOR. Er., lib. 1, op. I, v.11. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY,SEPTEMBER8, 1838. COMMISSIONER OF PUBLIC LANDS. &nbsp; BY the Speculator we have received private ad vices which render it highly probable that this important office may, by way of experiment, be vested in the Governor for the time being. This arrangement is connected with concessions of the highest importance to the Province, and which wear, in many respects, a most cheering aspect. The Crown may in an unqualified manner be said to have placed the entire management of the Province in the hands of the Commissioners; and &nbsp; the Governor will in a great measure be under their immediate control; and subject to instruc tions emanating directly from themselves. Still, with every disposition to look with confidence on arrangements made by a Board of which Colonel TORRENS is the chairman, we think the scheme highly dangerous and impoliti...

DINNER TO CAPTAIN STURT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 8 September 1838
DINNER TO CAPTAIN STURT. A public dinner was yesterday given to our re spected guest, Capt Sturt, by the inhabitants of Adelaide. The dinner was, by the permission of Messrs. Beck & Co. set out in their noble store, in Flinder's Street. Upwards of 100 gentlemen of the &nbsp; first respectability were present, and the coup dé &nbsp; œil of the room was singularly interesting. After the healths of Her Majesty, the Royal Family, the Commissioner, and the Acting Governor, the health of Captain Sturt was proposed by the chairman, John Morphett, Esq., and greeted with the most rapturous applause. Capt Sturt then addressed the meeting in an impressive speech, which the lateness of the hour will not permit us to report, but which we hope to do justice to in the ensuing week. After the various toasts were given, and on the Chairman leaving the room, O. Gilles, Esq. was voted into the chair, and the convivialities of &nbsp; the evening continued to a late hour....
RURAL CALENDAR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 September 1838
RURAL CALENDAR. SEPTEMBER.-September in Australia étends in re lation to the seasons, as the month of March does in the northern hémisphère. Mid-spring in the south ern latitudes tor this year, takes place 23rd Septem ber, at 35 minutes past 4 P. M. The first thing the farmer has to attend to, is the getting his spring seed sowing completed ; after which he should clear his land of the Swede turnip crop as they are raised from the ground, the tops and taproots should be cut off clean, and the turnips removed ia a dry state to an outhouse, or graved and piotected as potatoes are ; if properly put up, they will keep for a considerable period, and will support the store swine till the har vest has been got in, and the fields ready for the swine heards to glean ; as soon as the turnips are off the ground, it may be ploughed and sown with English Barley. If the ground be clean and well broken, this is a good opportunity for sowing it with grass seed-the quantity and kind of seeds must, h...
REGISTER OFFICE AND TRANSFER OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 September 1838
REGISTER OFFICE AND TRANSFER OF LAND. THE consideration of this important subject has been latterly forced upon us by a variety of cir cumstances involving great difficulty in both cases. To our certain knowledge, the same land bas been twice sold by unprincipled indi viduals* and there is no end to the embarass ment occasioned by the want of a Register Of fice, where persons could at once obtain the necessary knowledge of the situation of parties desirous of selling or borrowing money on land, or otherwise obtaining credit in mercantile transactions, upon ostensible proprietorship in the land* or buildings thereon erected. In a new. colony like our own, where real property undergoes such sudden and remarkable transitions from hand to hand, and where each week brings its corresponding increase of value and change of proprietors, the establishment of a Register Office founded upon the simple plan -proposed by the Land Commissioner, or some thing like if* becomes vitally necessary for...
THE EMIGRATION AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 September 1838
THE EMIGRATION AGENT. FRÍTATE letters in which we place confidence hare reached the Colony by the Speculator, and they speak of Mr. BROWN'S restoration to his office as a certainty. Singularly enough, in addition to the advantage of the statements of the Gazette, the over-anxiety of. Captain HINDMARSH to dismiss this gentleman reacted in his favour. Long before his suspension here, Capt. HINDMARSH wrote home for his removal, but having nothing in his conduct in the Colony to lay to his charge; the request was founded upon a statement that Mr. BROWN had, before, he left England, at one of the meetings of the emigrants at the Adelphi, when the Governor was in the chair, made some motion that involved a censare upon Lord GLENELG. Fortunately for Mr. BROWN,Mr.KINGSTON'S presence in England prevented the success of this attempt By his exertions several individuals who were present on the occasion referred to by the late Governor were found, and they came forward unanimously to state that...
