THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1838. EXPLORING PARTY—THE SURVEYORS. We have great pleasure in publishing (in another column) the notes of an excursion to the River Murray with which our young and intelligent friend Mr. JOHN OAKDEN has fur- nished us. It is a singular—and we may add a dis- heartening fact—that the only information the public has derived of the interior—especially of Encounter Bay, Lake Alexandrina, and the Murray —has been from the enterprise of private settlers. The surveyors—the individuals paid out of the colonial purse for that especial duty, and what is worse, expressly ordered to per- form it—have utterly neglected and disobeyed these orders. Had we depended on the exertions of our surveying party, both the &nbsp; Murray and the Lake, or the means of com- munication with either, would have been alto- gether unknown at this moment. There have indeed been two expeditions in which those enterprising functionaries, the Surveyor General and Resid...

CORONER'S INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 March 1838
CORONER'S INQUEST. An inquest was held at Mr. Lillyman's brewery, on the 9th March, 1838, before George Stevenson, Esq., Coroner, specially appointed, and a jury of twelve, on the body of Enoch Pegler, a laborer. The jury proceeded to the spot where the body lay and, having viewed the same, examined the following witnesses:— John Cavanagh, laborer, sworn—About half past six o'clock this morning as witness was going out to look for Mr. White's cattle he found the body of Enoch Pegler laying along the path, about thirty yards from the river, on the north side, with his feet towards the river. His shoes were off and laid under his legs. Witness laid his hand on deceased's face and found he was dead ; he then opened his shirt which was slightly torn and saw some blood. That part of his shirt which &nbsp; was clean was doubled over the part which was &nbsp; bloody so as to conceal the blood. The body &nbsp; was quite cold when witness saw it. Witness &nbsp...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. CORONER'S INQUEST.—An inquest was held on Tuesday before GEORGE STEVENSON, Esq., coroner, on the body of a man named JOSEPH LEE, who had fallen into a pool near the wooden bridge, in a state of intoxication, and was drowned. A verdict of accidental death was returned. It appears that Lee and another young man had been drinking together, and commenced "skylarking" by the side of the &nbsp; pool, when they both rolled in. Lee sunk, and his companion, after struggling for some time, was rescued by some native man who plunged in and brought him to the shore. They also dived and found the body of Lee, who had not been more than ten minutes submersed, but every effort to restore animation proved unavailing.
SUPREME COURT. MONDAY March 20. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 March 1838
SUPREME COURT. MONDAY March 20. His Honor sat at Eleven o'clock. FISHER, Resident Commissioner, v. HUTCH- &nbsp; INSON, Esq. Mr. Wigley showed cause against the rule &nbsp; nisi obtained by Mr. Fisher for a criminal information against Mr. Hutchinson, founded on an affidavit, which will appear in our next. After hearing Mr. Johnson, Counsel for Mr, Fisher, in reply, His Honor said he did not consider the case one which would justify the course adopted by Mr. Fisher, and the rule was therefore dis- charged with costs. There being no other business before the Court, His Honor rose at twelve.
BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 March 1838
BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. We grieve to announce that Professor Wilson, the editor of Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, and the proprietor of the villa at Elleray, on the eastern bank of Windermere, has fallen into a state of mental incapacity, "the last infirmity of &nbsp; noble minds," from which his nearest friends seem to have little hope of his recovery. We do not know that ever an event came to our know- ledge bringing with it a train of reflections more painful than that which we now most unwillingly publish.—Xendal Mercury, Oct. &nbsp; Dutch India.—"Under the head Batavia we read—Naws has been received from the Moluccas that on the 21st of January, about nine o'clock in the evening, there was a terrible earthquake in the islands of Saparea, Urocko, and Noessalant, which was succeeded by less violent shocks on the following days. The damage done to the public buildings is very great. The house of the Assistant Resident at Saparea has suffered so much that it is in da...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. Trivial fond records. — SHAKSPEARE. "WISDOM," says a French writer on synonymes, "teaches us to do what is right; prudence pre- &nbsp; vents our doing what is wrong;" thus proving that they are the negative rather than the positive virtues which assist us to worldly prosperity. &nbsp; We have met with two German fables on this subject which strike us for the terseness of their truth, whatever maybe said for their charity. It is not to be inferred that prudence is allied to meanness, the most prudent persons having often the inclination, as they always have the greatest power, to perform generous actions. The passage of the snake it emblematic of the silent and grovelling arts by which the sycophant works his way through the world, without a sentiment or opinion of his own. Like the serpent too he has a sting, and that is his ingratitude. But to our fables.— I. " What the ape learned from the serpent.—A young ape had studied long and...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, March, 19, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 March 1838
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, March, 19, 1838. I am, &c., ALFRED HARDY. D. Gill. Esq. GENTLEMEN—As the circumstances to which I am about to call your attention have ori- ginated from a question put on February 3d, in the South Australian Gazette, I consider I need hardly request you to publish, what I shall endeavour to make a simple and concise narra- tive of the facts in the order of their oc- currence. On the afternoon of February 6th, l was walk- ing with Mr. Stevenson towards his house, when we met Mr. Hardy, who called Mr. Stevenson aside; I walked on, and on being rejoined by Mr. S., he told me that he had just received a hostile message from Mr. Smart, and had referred Mr. Hardy to me as his friend. I have no reason for supposing that Mr. Stevenson would have selected me as his friend but from the mere circumstance of my being with him at the time. Accordingly, on the next morning, Mr. Hardy called on me and stated ...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 March 1838
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. On the Cultivation of Rape.—The Rape (Bras- &nbsp; &nbsp; sica rape) belongs to an extensive and highly valuable genus of plants, many species and varie- &nbsp; ties of which are cultivated as human food, and also for various domestic animals of the farm. It is cultivated both for the herbage and seed, the former being used as food for cattle and sheep, and the latter in the manufacture of oil, which is obtained by expression. Rape is, however, little grown for the latter purpose in this country, the climate being considered too variable and moist to bring the seed to maturity. The place which rape should occupy in a regular rotation is the same as that allotted to turnips or potatoes; but it is likewise sown and found to answer as a first crop on newly reclaimed or broken up grass- land, to be eaten off by sheep. It has a wider range of soil than the turnip, and promises to be- come a valuable plant in Irish agriculture from its succeeding ...

Strangways, Esq., Adelaide. I have the honor to be, Sir, Your very obedient servant, (Signed) T. BEWES STRANGWAYS The Honorable the Resident Commissioner. GENTLEMEN—Understanding that erroneous impressions have been formed by a portion of the community respecting the object of my late proceedings in the Supreme Court against the Resident Commissioner, I am anxious to lay before the public the following correspondence which has recently taken place between Mr. Fisher and myself, particularly as so many in- dividuals are interested equally with myself in the matter. I have only to add that the result of the cor- &nbsp; respondence has been an amicable arrangement, and that I have stayed further legal pro- ceedings. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, T. BEWES STRINGWAY...

MR. FISHER'S PAUPER LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 24 March 1838
MR. FISHER'S PAUPER LABORERS. WE believe the announcement that there is at the present moment a number of emigrants &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; in the colony in a state of pauperism and destitute of employment will startle the great majority of our fellow-colonists, who, suffering as they are from want of workmen, willingly give six shillings per diem to good and five shillings per diem to indifferent hands. We do not speak here of mechanics, whose twelve shillings a day; but of ordinary laborers &nbsp; &nbsp; — men who can use the spade, the axe, or the grubbing hoe. Such, however, is the lamentable fact—if Mr. Fisher the Resident Com missioner is to be believed; and such must be &nbsp; the fact, before that gentleman's actions can be justified or palliated. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We may, however, at once quiet the alarm which the friends of South Australia at home may experience from an un...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1838. THE INJUNCTION. attained the object he had in view and secured the landholders against any undue exercise of &nbsp; discretionary power after priority of choice had been balloted for, by forcing Mr. Fisher to declare beforehand where the preliminary sections were to be surveyed, and the secondary towns reserved, but has actually driven that worthy functionary into the very course we suggested many weeks ago, and which might as easily have been resorted to then as now. On the 20th of January we said— Let the ballot for choice take place and every preliminary holder of land forthwith choose his farm on the spot he pleases—either over the ground contemplated for tht country sections or elsewhere in the colony—sites of towns at harbours only re- served. The proper quantity of land for each might be measured when the surveyors have time. This arrangement would put the preliminary holders in possession at once; and it would do more:...
