THIS COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. FEBRUARY 17. 18. THE SLANDERERS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 February 1838

THIS COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. FEBRUARY 17, 1838. THE SLANDERERS OF THE COLONY. THE real slanderers of the colony are a few half-witted gentlemen who have found their way hither, and who, not contented with scribbling lying nonsense for the gratification of their private friends, are ambitious to see their lucubrations in print. The journals in Sydney and Van Diemen's Land have been, ac- cordingly, inundated from such quarters with all sorts of wild, and for the most part false, descriptions of the colony—intended, perhaps, by the writers to encourage emigration, but so blunderingly contrived as to have an effect the   very reverse. Men of common discernment—     those who have "money to lose"—suspect, with     justice, high-flown encomiums, and the "puffing   system" is their particular abhorrence. The object of this journal from its commencement has been to forward the progress of the colony by fair a...

"AN AFFAIR" PREVENTED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 February 1838

" AN AFFAIR" PREVENTED. Your's most sincerely. (Signed) BINGHAM HUTCHINSON. Let me hear from you soon. Hon. J. H. Fisher, Colonial Commissioner. ON Monday, February 4, the Honorable Resi-   dent Commissioner James Hurtle Fisher, Esq., and Young Bingham Hutchinson, Esq., late Emigration Agent, were brought up before the Resident Magistrate and bound over to keep the peace towards each other under the follow- ing circumstances:— Early in the day George Stevenson, Esq., the Governor's Private Secretary, applied to the Magistrate for a warrant against each of the parties, as circumstances had that morning occurred which, in his Excellency's opinion, were likely to lead to a breach of the peace. In the course of the day the parties appeared at the Court House, when Mr. Stevenson stated that Mr. Fisher had forwarded to the Governor the same morning a paper pur- porting to be the copy of a letter addressed to him by Mr. Hutchinson, the tendency of which appeared so directly ca...

MOST IMPORTANT TO LANDHOLDERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 February 1838

MOST IMPORTANT TO LAND- HOLDERS. The Resident Commissioner is at his tricks again. A meeting of landholders of prelimi- nary sections was held, we are informed, on Tuesday last, but no notice of it having   been given in the Gazette (the only official channel of publication), the proceedings of the meeting are of course illegal, and not binding on any landholder. On this occasion, however, a resolution was passed, to ballot for the choice of preliminary sections on some day next week— what day we     have not heard. This ballot is intended to   determine the priority of the right of choice. Previously to the day named, landholders or their agents holding more than a single section are required to intimate to the Resident Com- missioner the number of sections of land they mean to ballot for at one chance; whether,   in short, the owner will take his two, or ten, or twenty, or fifty sections at one chance, and in a lump,...

CASE OF STEPHENS & WRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 February 1838

CASE OF STEPHENS & WRIGHT. J. W. D. BLENKINSOP. Sworn before us, two of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the Province of South Australia, this 13th day of Oc- tober, 1837. T. BEWES STRANGWAYS, J.P. GEO. STEVENSON, J.P. THE Cornwall Chronicle seems to have un- dertaken the double task of defending the out- rageous proceedings of the Commissioners' authorities here and of vilifying the officers of her Majesty's Government by imputations of the most ridiculous kind. Among other means that of attributing to magistrates in the administration of justice a bias created by poli- tical feelings is alone the most infamous and unfounded. We find the following paragraph in a late number of the journal we have men- tioned:— Mr. Stephenson, the editor of the Gazette [who is not the editor of the Gazette] and Mr. Strange- ways, the gentleman appointed by Captain Hind- marsh to fill the situation of Colonial Secretary, from which Mr. Gouger was thrust by the Go- vernor, issued a warr...

TYRANNY OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 February 1838

TYRANNY OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. IT is part of the dishonest trickery of the Grindstone party to Account for their "fallen fortunes" by accusing the Governor of tyranni- cal conduct. One prater tells us that his Excel- lency's actions smack of the dignity of the quarter deck, and another that he is too familiar and easy of access —especially to poor suitors. It is just the old story of the picture in the market place, and the gabble of him of the Grindstone is worth no more than the daub of the connoisseur. Among the rest of the placeless and discon- tented is a Mr. Morphett, whose descriptive abilities were noticed in our last. This same small gentleman we perceive has also been cor- responding with the Sydney Colonist. We have not received the number of that journal containing Mr. Morphett's letter—probably   owing to some irregularity of the Post-office— but the editor refers to it in a subsequent num- ber in the following terms: — " According to Mr. Morphett, the Gove...

WE publish the following correspondence at present merely for the purpose of getting rid of it. Mr. Fisher's impudent puff of the Surveyor General will find an appropriate com- mentary in our next.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 February 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. The necessity of an immediate change in the colonial direction and chief officers of this great company is forced upon us at every turn; and we feel that we should become parties to the sacrifice of its true interests were we not to lend public aid in exposing the instances of gross mismanagement which are daily obtruded upon our attention, as well as to warn the di- rectors at home 0f a fact, every day becoming more apparent to the attentive observer here, namely, that if the course of its present man- agement be persevered in, a public stand will be made against the company, and a determined   refusal on the part of the colonists to deal or transact business with it become general and inevitable. Among the many causes, not purely   personal, that are leading to this deplorable re- sult, we may allude to the following:— When the Lord Hobart arrived at Kangaroo Island with a cargo of provisions, stock &c., it was represente...

LETTERS OF " THE COLONIST' THE COLONIST TOT THE COMMISSIONERS AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 February 1838

LETTERS OF "THE COLONIST."   THE COLONIST TO THE COMMISSIONERS AT HOME. I am your obedient servant, THE COLONIST. GENTLEMEN—If you have read my letters in the Gazette you will have no doubt of my anxiety for your interests; and I address you now to warn you of a scheme in contemplation, by which         if carried into effect or if submitted to, you will be losers to the tune of £10,000 at least.       Your excellent representative here has fixed the size of Port Adelaide at twenty-nine acres! It is   not even to be a secondary town. No survey of town allotments, as such, is to take place; and any lucky fellow who draws an early choice of country land pockets your money, and robs the emigration fund, as I have said, of £10,000. A more desperate trick cannot be imagined; because   the capital has been chosen seven miles distant   from the seap...

THE COLONIST TO THE COLONIAL COMMISSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 February 1838

THE COLONIST TO THE COLONIAL COMMISSIONER. SIR—I cannot help your complaining that I am a troublesome correspondent. I promise you one thing however, that whenever you sink into the obscurity of private life, there you shall remain for me undisturbed. In that character I know you       not. It is as Colonial Commissioner—the representa- tive of a body of honorable gentlemen untrusted   with high duties, and able from your position to work mischief on a large scale—to do acts in questions? Your servant, THE COLONIST. the name of others, which, justified or not, affect   the interests of the province and of every indivi- dual in it—that I honor you with my notice. You are public property, and as such I use you. You have, I hear, threatened the printers of the Gazette with an action for libel for publishing my letter exposing the pork affair. Sir, I dare you to go before a jury on that subject. You know better. You know w...

in England, the course which the Advocate   General would recommend to the Governor to pursue would be, to authorise some officer of the Government to attend the meeting to-morrow, and explain to the proprietors, before they proceeded to make any selections (out of regard to their interests, which might be hereafter materially af- fected by the present correspondence), the nature of this correspondence, in order that they might clearly understand the circumstances under which they would make their selections; and which they would thus make with a full knowledge of the consequences that might be apprehended from the published wishes of the Governor having been dis- regarded by the Resident Commissioner. The Colonial Secretary stated that he coincided entirely with the opinion expressed by the Advocate General. The Judge gave his opinion that the Advocate General appeared to have taken a correct view of, tbe subject throughout his written opinion now laid before the counc...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24. 1838. TO THE HONORABLE THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We are, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obedient Servants. The EDITORS OF THE GAZETTE. GENTLEMEN—The facts and opinions of calm observers, communicated through the press, cannot fail to interest those who may justly claim to be the Fathers of South Australia. In adopting this channel of address, we secure you as far as possible against artful insinuation or misrepresentation. Statements to which publicity is given, and which if incorrect can find hundreds on the spot to con- tradict, are far more likely to be fair, and to com- mand the respect due to truth, then those made secretly or under circumstances which carry with them no test of their honesty, and afford no public guarantee on which reliance can be placed. As it if our intention to examine minutely the working of the great principle of colonization, the development of which has been entrusted to your guidance,...
