COLONEL LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838

COLONEL LIGHT. IT is our intention in our next number to furnish our readers with a full report of the dinner given on Wed nesday last to our Surveyor-General, Colonel LIGHT. and the other genttemeu connected vvith the Survey Department. We do not intend to eulegize this gen? tleman-he is beyond our praise ; for nothing can be added to the honest and heartfelt enthusiasm with which the whole of the Colony on this occasion came forward to express their esteem for him as a man, and their admiration of him as an officer. ' He has had no common work to achieve ; he has had to perform it under no common circumstances; he has done it in. no common manner. On him devolved the sole re sponsibility of fixins the site of the principal city of a   new empire, and of surveving an extensive tract for immediate possession. With limited means, in a limited time, against all the opposition which a jeal ousy of the trust so properly confided to him would provoke in one and all, that big...

DINNER TO MR. HAWDON. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838

DINNER TO MR. HAWDON. We seize with alacrity the earliest opportunity of de   voting a portion of our columns to the communication of the arrival of this gentleman in the Colony, with the first herd of cattle brought over-land from the Sister Colony of New South Wales. The importance attached to this spirited and suc cessful expedition is not perhaps generally understood, or sufficiently appreciated. When however we behold the completion of a project, the bare possibility of which was entertained rather as a matter of distant speculation than of present hope, we cannot but offer our hearty thanks to Mr. HAWDON for connecting us so early and so interestingly with New South Wales. Individually, the name of HAWDON, as the pioneer of   pastoral emigration, can never be forgotten ; and we record, with the most sincere pleasure, the testimony of gratitude due to this enterprising gentleman from the inhabitants of South Australia, apologizing for the brevity which...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 June 1838

PROSPECTUS OF THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN, A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER, TO BE PUBLISHED AT ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. AT present day a Free Press is an essential attribute to the social existence of Englishmen wherever residing. It has long since assumed the character of a National Institution in the Forent Country, and it is now very justly termed her Fourth Estate. As a popular defence against bad Government áád bad Legislation, it is the grand bulwark of modem times. But in such of the Colonies of the Empire as are,-from circumstances in their immediate condition, shut put from a participation in the Representative and Municipal Systems of the Mother Country, it is the only check in ¿he hands of the people against the oppressive use of power. It is high time that the Colonists of Sotith Australia possessed themselves of this popular franchise. It is needless to shew , that np td this time we have had AO Tree Press in the Colony. It will on all hands be admitted that one Journal, devoted to se...

ABORIGINES. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 June 1838

ABORIGINES. ? To the Editor of the Southern Australian. It will hare given great pleasure to all those who feel interested in the well being of the Aboriginal Natives of this Province, to observe in the opening number of your Journal, that the interests of this portion of our fellow subjects were to be advocated, and that their right to participate in the general prosperity of this Colony would be finally upheld. We have j been following our different avocations in a great measure regardless of the state of the black population, until a short time since we were thrown into a state of alarm, in consequence of our position with respect to these neglected beings becoming every day more critical. We then began to think they were worth our notice, and that some measures were necessary to en sure a good understanding with them. The Aboriginal Committee noticed in the first num ber of y our Journal bas arisen from this state of j things, and I am happy in believing that much j good will re...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 June 1838

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. ] To the Editor of the Southern Australian. 1 I have been of opinion for some time that lhere might be a better track than the one now in use to Encounter Bay, and therefore last week proceeded direct »o Mount Barker, from whence I struck to the S. S. W., expecting to find an easy access to the Bay in that direction. After travelling about thirty-five miles, keeping a high range on my right, I came to a Salt Water Uiver, running out of a high barren range appa rently at tile back of the Aldinjhi Plains. The River at some distance from the hills, spreads into large sheets of water from one to two miïes in width, and eventually took an easterly direc tion, increasing in size till it reached the Lake. The country at the eastern batik is decidedly bad, and fiesh water very scarce. I am con vinced that this Uiver, or rather arm of the Lake, shuts out all communication with En counter Bay by any other way than the one now in u*e by Onkeparinga...

Tell ns where we are to got Even if we bad land to settle upon, we must hive longer time than two months to erect our dwellings.

REPORTS AGAINST THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 June 1838

I REPORTS AGAINST THE COLONY. I BY the Henry Freeling, arrived onThursday, -we -, have reports from Port Phillip to the 23rd May. ; Among other matters, we learn that two or t three Van Diemonians, lately here, have been hoaxing our friends at Port Phillip and Launces . ton with the most ridiculous reports of the bad ness of the soil in South Australia, and our want of facilities for sheep-pasturing generally. We intreat our friends to judge for themselves. We know on good authority that the wages paid by a sheep fermer, at Port Phillip are not less than they are here ; while the many thousand acres of good land and good pasturage in the imme diate vicinity of Adelaide is notorious. We speak not of reports emanating from South Aus tralians ; we refer to such gentlemen as Dr. IM LAY, Mr. HAWDON, Dr. SHERWIN, Mr. ANSTEY, and others; gentlemen whose knowledge and ability our friends will agree with us cannot be impugned. One party has been deterred by these reports from joining us, alt...

WE are no lovers of the doctrine of fatalism ; and yet there are strange matters occurring every day in this world of ours, which, with out the aid derived from the maxims of those who reason upon the data of that sys tem seem utterly inexplicable. We recollect well the admirable apologue of Miss EDGE WORTH ; and the fates of Murad the unlucky, and of Saledden the fortunate, have not been forgotten since the days of our boy hood. Even then, however, a lingering feeling rested on our mind that the mis chances of the hero of the tale were con nected with some disastrous planet-and that his very indolence was a fate. Such too has often been our impression when contemplating the somewhat erratic political career of His Excellency the Governor. Tired out with endeavouring to account on reasonable gro...

In our second number we slated ** that by reason bf precontract, strong grounds existed for a Petition to the Crown that this in valuable privilege may no longer be"confined to ; a few dépendent officials, but may be extended to, a large body of the influential proprietors of the soil:" We have reason to believe from the stau -, ment of our correspondents that this view of the matter is favourably entertained in high quarters (so far at least as an enlargement of the Council goes) ; but that the Home Government are deter mined to make the tenure of some honorary office a pre-requisite to a seat in the Council. This we think a fatal error; but we feel convinced from die highly* honorable conduct of Her Majes' ty'-s Ministers with reference to the affairs of the Colony, that the ill effect (a...
