THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1937 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1837 AFTER an interval of nearly twelve months the second number of the AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE makes its appearance in its own country. The difficulties attendant upon the novelty of our situation, the disadvantages under which the     mechanical part of our labours takes place want of settlement, want of room, or perhaps     want of use, will plead our apology should we     not wear the same neat and becoming garb in   which we made our debut in the great empo-   rium of ages and civilization. Every week will   lessen these impediments, and we trust soon to   shew to our countrymen, that if the change of circumstances have for a time dimmed the clearn of our outward complexion, custom     and exercise will soon restore it. Thus much   by way of excuse for deficiencies of exterior;     our intrinsic capacities are the same as before. In our fir...

SURVEY OF THE COUNTRY SECTIONS.. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Glenelg, May 22nd, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

SURVEY OF THE COUNTRY SECTIONS.   To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Glenelg, May 22nd, 1837. Sir,—Previous to quitting England, the pur-   chasers of land were promised on their arrival, immediate possession of their property. The sur- veys were all to have been completed, and ready for choice. We have now been in South Australia for half a year and more, waiting with our ser- vants, for our town acres and country sections. After a delay of several months, the town acres have been obtained at a place so far from the sea,     that it costs us more money to bring our goods     from the beach to them, than from England to the beach. This is bad enough, but what I desire to know is,—when are our country acres to be had?       It took the Surveyor General and his Staff four months to survey 1000 acres for the town, how     long will t...

SESSION OF GAOL, DELIVERY. May 13, 1837 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

SESSION OF GAOL, DELIVERY. May 13, 1837 Before His Honor, Sir John JEFFCOTT, Knight, Chief Justice of the Province. This morning, the Grand and Petit Jury of the Province, assembled at the Office of the Resident Commissioner, a commodious Building, which will hereafter be occupied as the Offices of the Regis- trar-General of the Province. We have to congratulate the Colony, at this early stage of its progress, on an array alike striking, whether we regard its respectability or its intelligence. We have been accustomed to a union of these qualities in the Juries of an English Assize; but habituated as we are to the proceedings of a highly civilised country, we assert unhesitatingly that the Grand and Petit Juries assembled this     morning might, in every respect, challenge a com-   parison with those of a similar class in the mother country. The scene was, in fact, singularly interesting,   and His Honor the Judge was evidently gra...

ARRIVAL AND INSTALLATION OF THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

ARRIVAL AND INSTALLATION OF THE GOVERNOR. SINCE the month of March, 1836, vessels had been continually leaving England for our new Colony. The Rapid, with Colonel LIGHT the Surveyor-General, the Cygnet, Africaine, and Tam O'Shanter, with the rest of the   surveyors, Mr. GOUGER, the Colonial Secre- tary, Mr. BROWN, the Emigration Agent, and   a strong party of labourers; the South Aus- tralian Company's Ships, the Duke of York,   Lady Mary Pelham, Emma, and John Pirie, with the Company's officers, servants, and     stores, had all arrived in safety, with the ex- ception of the Tam O'Shanter, which met with   an accident at the mouth of the Harbour, the consequences of which, however, to the ship and cargo, have not been so serious as at first they were expected to be. On the morning of the 24th December, H. M. S. Buffalo entered the magnificent Har- bour of Port Lincoln, and found the Cygnet at &nbs...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. It gives us very sincere pleasure to announce the arrival at the Company's settlement of Kings- cote, Kangaroo Island, of D. MACLAREN, Esq., Chief Manager of this great and flourishing Com- pany. Previous to that Gentleman's arrival, the Principal Management been entrusted to Mr.   SAMUEL STEPHENS, who, notwithstanding the   serious difficulties that arose with many of the     emigrants brought out in the Company's service,     succeeded in erecting several very commodious Warehouses, and other buildings, for the reception   of the abundant stores furnished by the Directors, and for the residence of the various Officers. Kingscote is situated on the western shore of Nepean Bay, admirably sheltered from all winds, and well situated tor commercial purposes. The Company has formed a whaling establishment at a newly discovered anchorage in Encounter Bay,   named Rosetta Harbour, and w...

TO THE PURCHASERS OF THE FIRST 437 SECTIONS OF LAND IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

TO THE PURCHASERS OF THE FIRST 437 SECTIONS OF LAND IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. GENTLEMEN. - In a matter of such vital impor-   tance to the success of our new colony as the lo-   cation of its Metropolis, opinion should at all events be unfettered. With this conviction I offer no apology for the free publication of that which     I have framed. I have [?] reason to do so,           as in matters of all the duty, I have never per-     mitted personal feelings to intrude, and in the present instance I believe that the views of many       [?] or more deeply interested do not in reality       differ from my own. That the site of the capital should be the most eli-           gible in the Province, is a position which I deem to be [?] not only on general principles, but equally so on private grounds — whether on [?] Land we consider the permanent welfare           of the province ...

THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 3 June 1837

THE NATIVES. It is a source of much gratification to find that the Natives of that portion of the Province chosen for the first settlements, are far superior to the ordinary race of New Hollanders. Their friendly dispositions, honesty, and inoffensive conduct, may fairly set at rest all the fears that might, at first, have been entertained. It is to be hoped that an   attempt to bring them within the pale of civiliza- tion, judiciously begun and firmly conducted, will soon be made. In the meantime, our readers will see, from the Proclamation of His Excellency, and   the charge delivered by SIR JOHN JEFFCOTT, to the Grand Jury of the Province, that every protection   will be afforded them by the authorities of the Province. It is a pleasing part of our duty to   add that the greatest kindness has been shown to   the natives by the inhabitants of Adelaide, and that there is every reason to look forward to an uninterrupted continuance of the prese...

As I have not yet been favoured with a reply to my letter, I fear it   has escaped your recollection, but as I perceive it is notified that the next number of the Gazette   will be published on the 8th of July, and the Sur- veyor General wishes his answer of the letter referred to, to appear in that number, I shall feel obliged by your sending me your reply to my en-   quiry, at...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. I am, sir, &c, A PRELIMINARY PURCHASER. SIR.- I do not know whether it is intended to publish in the Gazette an account of the selection   of the "preliminary" town lands, but I conceive that it would be interesting to the majority of your readers, and especially to the proprietors of     the lands themselves, who are the possessors of at   least nineteen-twentieths of all the purchased           land in the Colony. If the accounts were to con-         tain the order of choice, the section chosen and the name of the proprietor, it would not only be a convenient document for future reference, but   would also show the difference of opinion which       prevailed as to the most valuable part of the town lands.

THE N[?]. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 July 1837

THE NATIVES. A scene took place at the Court of General Gaol delivery, which illustrates the character of the natives so strikingly, that we cannot resist the temptation to describe it at some length. Two men, named Moon and Hoare, were charged       with stealing spears and waddies from certain na-     tives. The proof of the theft was not conclusive       and the judge ordered the prisoners to be dis-   charged to recognizance, and the property to be       restored to the natives, who were brought into     court, in order that the course about to be   adopted might be explained to them through their interpreter.         They were accordingly, four in number, brought       into court. They were all strong, well-made men,       with high fore heads, countenances by no means     deficient in intellectual expression, l...

BOSTON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 July 1837

BOSTON BAY. We have been favoured with a copy of the following declaration made by Captain Mit- chell before one of the Magistrates of the Province, regarding this harbour. As no infor- mation of the proceedings of the Surveying                           Party has been communicated to the public here, we are ignorant whether Boston Bay has been examined or no. We have no hesitation,   however, in vouching for the correctness of Captain Mitchell's statement regarding that place. Phillip Mitchell, master of the barque Tam     O'Shanter, at present lying in the creek in St.     Vincent's Gulph, declared that he had arrived about the 23rd of January last, off Kangaroo Island, in search of the said ship, for the purpose of taking command of her, but not havi...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. I am, Sir, Yours, &c., A LANDHOLDER. SIR.—I beg, through the columns of your wide- ly-circulated paper, to call the attention of the public, and especially of the Commissioners in England, to a fraud which is about to be rated, extensively practised on the Emigration Fund     Persons in England having connections in the neighbouring Colonies, and being without the   means of conveying themselves thither, procure a     free passage to this Colony, and after saving the fruits of a few months' labour, start off to Sydney or Hobart Town, exalting in the success of their scheme. I really think that persons who obtain a passage to this Colony, and maintenance for four months at the expense of the Emigration Fund, ought, if they choose to leave this Colony before the expiration of one year, to return £15. of the cost of their passage money; if before two   years, £10.; and if before t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CHURCH AND THE LORD BISHOP OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 July 1837

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CHURCH AND THE LORD BISHOP OF AUSTRALIA. It will be seen from an advertisement in our columns, regarding the Church, that considerable delay has taken place in its creation, in conse-   quence of want of funds. Our friends in England who have interested themselves in the religious welfare of the Colony, will hear with regret, that the liberal assistance, contributed by them, towards this most desirable end, has not been sufficient to   its accomplishment, and for aught we know or see, the erection of the Church is as far distant now, on the 8th of July, as it was when first landed. Indeed, there appears some probability that the benevolent intention of the donors will not be carried into effect at all, especially if the government determine to erect a Colonial Church, and require the services of the Colonial Chaplain,     who is also incumbent of the present Church.   Our readers, we presume, generally...
