SIX MONTHS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA [SECOND NOTICE.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839

SIX MONTHS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA [SECOND NOTICE.] By T. HORTON JAMES, ESQ. THE title of this work, we are informed, is a misnomer. Mr. James was only three months and a half in South Australia, and during that time, with the exception of a visit or two to Glenelg and the Port, he himself saw no more of the colony than is visible from the doors and yard of the Southern Cross Hotel. His descrip-   tions, therefore of the views from Mount Lofty, and his accounts of the fertility or barrenness of the interior, so far as they are not pure in- vention, are founded on the reports of others. Mr. James never was at Port Lincoln, yet here is his description of it, and wherever he may picked it up, there is no doubt of its correct-     ness—   South Australia can boast of having one of the finest harbours in the world, far superior to   Portsmouth, Plymouth, Cromity, Cork, or Mil-   ford, in Great Britain; the harbour o...

LETTER WRITING HOME. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839

LETTER WRITING HOME. IF the steady advancement of South Australia should ever be checked, or the belief of the people of England be shaken in its capabilities to become one of the most wealthy and pros- perous of the Colonial possession of the Crown,   it will be owing neither to the abuse of the journals of the neighbouring penal settlements, nor the contradictory exaggerations of "Visit-     ors," or authors of the mental calibre of Mr. James, but to the false, distorted, garbled,       and in some cases we have reason to       believe, the manufactured statements of Igno-         rant emigrants here publised by interested   and injudicious parties at home, with the view   of promosting their petty interests by the circu-     lation of misrepresentations. Our read...

THE NATIV [?] TECTOR OF [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839

THE NATIVES - PROTECTOR OF THE ABORIGINES        Our readers  will find, in the last paper, [?] comments of [?] [?] [?]. First, a letter addressed by the [?] appointed at the public meeting of the 7th May last to their constituents; and Second, a letter addressed by the same Com- mittee to the Governor, in reply to his Excel- lency's letter published in the Gazette of the 18th of that month. As these letters do not in any degree alter or affect the opinions we expressed some time ago, it is almost unnecessary for us to detain   our readers with any lengthened remark. We continue to think that whatever may have been the merits or demerits of the late Protector of the Aborigines in the discharge of the duties of that office, to try and to condemn him, not merely in his absence and   unheard, but at a time when it was impossible for him to be present, and when, in point of fact, he was actually engaged in a meritorious service to the suffering natives of a dis...

COLONEL LIGHT'S JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839

COLONEL LIGHT'S JOURNAL. COLONEL LIGHT has published what he calls "a Brief Journal of his proceedings as Sur-   veyor General, with a few remarks on some of the objections that it have been made to them." The Journal reaches only to the 20th June, 1837, and is abruptly broken off in the middle of the account of his expedition to Encounter Bay, in consequence, it appears, of the loss of his Journal in the fire which recently destroyed his cottage. A continuation, however, is pro- mised from memory, and " Mr. Stevenson's attacks in the South Australian Gazette" are to be yet answered. We have perused Colonel Light's pamphlet with interest, and some passages of it not with- out very deep regret. There is a morbid feel- ing displayed, scarcely consistent with the acknowledged talent of the author; an impu- tation of motives, evidently the offspring of that feeling, in most cases unjust; and there are statements which Colonel Light has put forth as facts communicated to him...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839

SWAN RIVER. WE have received a file of the Swan River paper (Perth Gazette) to the 4th May. Matters appear in that settlement about as dull as ever. Governor Hutt had received orders from home to raise the price of land to 12s. per acre; but we observe that, at a meeting of the     Legislative Council of the 1st May his Excel-   lency announced that these orders would not be       carried into effect. His Excellency said it was   not his intention at present to raise the price of land. He considered, from the nautre of the despatch, that it was not imperative on him to do so. He thought it would be idle to raise   the price of land above 5s. so long as there was a quantity in the hands of individuals which they would sell at 2s. 6d., as had been the case   in some instances. But the strongest argument against raising the price was the injustice it   would...

L[?]RNING ON THE PARK LAND. To The Editor South Australian Cazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 29 June 1839

LIMEBURNING ON THE PARK LAND. To The Editor South Australian Gazette. Sir - From your desire to correct every abuse, I am induced to mention that of limeburning upon the park land. In the government order of Nov. 10th, 1838, no brickmaking was to continue upon the park,                   but limeburning was to be allowed, as it was sup-       posed the public would suffer from a rise in the price of that article.   Now, Sir, so far from the public receiving any     benefit from this licence, really more is charged       than at a short distance from town the owners knowing they can charge it, as the carriage is so       much less. Of course the difference goes into their pockets. At the eight-acre section they &...

PORT LINCOLN. J. PIDDINGTON. Capt. Walker, R.N. I am, dear Sir, yours truly, C.C. DUTTON. Geo. Stevenson, Esq. It gives us great satisfaction to hear satis-   factory accounts from this infant settlement.

Dutton, Esq., late High Sheriff' of the Colony, now settled at Port Lincoln, to Mr. Stevenson, as good testimony of the actual capabilities of that location; and we shall be glad to receive all authentic information, which we shall publish, regarding very little whether it militates for or against the locality of the new Port or of the   country in its immediate neighbourhood :— The reports of the bad land are entirely false — arising, doubtless, from persons giving opinions on a subject they are not practically acquainted with.

THE. ABORIGINES— INSTRUCTIONS TO THE NEW PROTECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 July 1839

THE. ABORIGINES— INSTRUCTIONS TO THE NEW PROTECTOR. THE instructions just issued to Mr. Moorhouse the Protector of the Aborigines, will be found   below. So far as they go they appear to be unexceptionable, but it strikes us as somewhat singular that one of the most prominent, if not the most practically important, duty of the Protector has been altogether omitted. The Protector has not been directed to instruct the natives with reference to their relative position towards the colonists. Nothing is said of en- lightening them on the subject of offences   against the property or the lives of the settlers, or of teaching them to distinguish carefully and to respect implicitly the meum and tuum prin- ciple, of the existence of which they do not seem to be yet sufficiently aware. The only effectual protection of the natives will be found in keeping them as much as possible from doing mischief to our flocks and herds, and to the lives of the colonists, for the P...

SCRIPTURAL SUGGESTIONS OF AUSTRALIA. "Tongnes in tres, books in tho running streams, Scrmons in Stones, and truth in everything." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 July 1839

SCRIPTURAL SUGGESTIONS OF AUSTRALIA. "Tongues in trees, books in the running streams, Sermons in Stones, and truth in everything." To those engaged in pastoral occupations in this charming country, many of its aspects and peculiarities of climate illustrate and most pleasingly suggest features of coincidence with Holy Palestine of old. In Europe generally, but more especially in busy, inventive Britain human agency has attained such all-sufficient supremacy, that every want being supplied and every comfort secured, whether seasons shine or frown, the sentiment both of heart and tongue is too apt to be—" I am he who hath done this great thing"—while Nature and Nature's God are comparatively unacknow- ledged. It is thus that many of the most beautiful descriptive passages of Scripture are often considered more imaginative and figu- rative than derived irony, or applicable to, the everyday necessities or actual condition of man. Those accustomed to depend on their own, or their country...

STEPHEN v. MACDOUGALL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 6 July 1839

STEPHEN v. MACDOUGALL. THE publisher of the Southern Australian, was brought up, on Tuesday last, before his Honor Chief-Justice Cooper, to receive judg-   ment for the libel on Mr. GEORGE MILNER Stephen, of which he had been found guilty at the last assizes, fined £50, and bound over, himself in £300, and two sureties in £150 each, to keep the peace for the next twelve months. Our readers will find the proceedings on this occasion reported, we believe correctly, in another portion of our paper.   We forbear fresh remark on the merits of a case which leaves fact, and character, and truth, entirely out of the question. We do this the more willingly, as the Judge threw the entire part of the libel which bore upon Mr. Stephen's conduce in connection with the "Milner Estate," out of view, and considered his sentence only in reference tot he allusions made to that person's former character in Van Diemen's Land, which his Honor regarded as libellous, and which, i...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. Fair Play and the continuation of Colonel Light's pamphlet in our next. We thank G. of Launceston for the Cornwell Chronicle, containing the notice of Mr. G. M. Stephen. We believe there are not two opinions on the subject in either colony. Several arti- cles and communications which have been in type for weeks must still stand over. The poetical effusion entitled "The Bush in Australia," we have not had   time to read. We so abominaterths "original poetry"   of newspapers that we make it a principle on no consideration to print the rhymes with which we are occasionally favored.
