To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN —As it is of great importance to those who wish to select a part, if not all, of their land at Encounter Bay, that the survey should take place as soon as possible in that district, I beg permission to call the attention of the proper authorities to the subject through an official and public channel. As I conceive that a small force of the survey departemnt will be found quite sufficient for the purpose of marking     the country sections here as fast as they are se-   lected and occupied, what is to hinder the im-   mediate despatch of an efficient party to com- mence at once the survey of a site for a town,     and about 100 country sections at Encourter     Bay? By going now, they will be able to     avail themselves of the most favourable time of       &am...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

NEW SOUTH WALES. WE have received Sydney papers up to the 15th March. The new Governor, Sir GEORGE GIPPS, had arrived on the 25th February. The following are extracts:— His Excellency Sir George Gipps landed from the Upton Castle on Friday evening, and assumed the reins of government on the following day. Sir George commences his reign under circum- stances peculiarly auspicious. Nothing whatever of his previous career, except the single instance of the Canada Commission, is known to the great majority of the colonial public; consequently it is by his future and not by his past acts that he must rise or full in the estimation of the colo- nists. On himself depends the success of his administration. All parties at present are in- clined to augur favourably of his policy, and to yield him every reasonable assistance in carrying into effect the measures of his Government— Sydney Gazette. In accordance with the proclamation of the Acting Governor, published in our last number, about hal...

CENSUS OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

CENSUS OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. We take from the last Government Gazette the following statement of the population of that thriving colony in 1838 :— The excess of numbers which the Church of England exhibits is, we presume, to be attri- buted to the circumstance of the persons who do not belong to any sect, or perhaps who pro- fess no religious faith whatever, being set down to the credit of that Church.

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records. "—SHAKSPEARE. JOHN WILSON.—In the summer of 1816 ap-   peared the "City of the Plague and other Poems by John Wilson, author of the Isle of Palms," of whom the writer of a critique upon them in the September of the same year remarks:—"^We take our leave of Mr. Wilson with an ardent wish that he may not prove another victim to the wild and fantastic theory which seems to be operating upon the finest brains in the country." This was two-and-twenty years ago; the prophet is no more, but his prophecy is fulfilled. Professor Wilson the writer of the morbid horror then reviewed, and however apparently incongruous, the author of the greater portion of the witty fun of the " Noctes Ambrosianae" is now laid prostrate — not by the unrelenting hand of death, but by the harrowing stroke of madness. M. S. Ovid's Birthday.—April Ist—Ovid born. So that the April fools have not all the days to themselves. This birth dates forty...

(B) Adelaide, South Australia. January 25, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

(B) Adelaide, South Australia. January 25, 1838. MY Lord—I take the liberty of troubling your Lordship with the accompanying copy of corres-   pondence and other documents to show the incre- dible extent to which party feeling, as it is termed, is arrived here, and the degrading extremities to which persons go to answer their purposes. It is quite unnecessary for me to do more than solicit your Lordship's attention to the documents referred to in the correspondence and picked up in     different places in Adelaide. I need make no   comments upon them. They develop their own character, as well as the total absence of any that is respectable on the part of their author, and your Lordship, with the high sense of feeling which your Lordship is so well known to possess, will at once appreciate them. The writer of them is a Mr. Young Bingham Hutchinson, who is one of my other dispatchers to your Lordship of this date, had been appointed ...

THE EMIGRATION FUND IN PERIL [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

THE EMIGRATION FUND IN PERIL IN the course of our editorial censures of Mr. Resident Commissioner FISHER, we have had almost daily occasion to complain that the proceedings of that functionary, so far as they are revealed to the profane examination of the colonists, were not merely in flagrant contra- diction to the orders of his superiors, but inimical and destructive to the best interests of the colony. We have been obliged to witness, and, what is worse, to endure the " fantastic tricks" which the gentleman in his "brief authority" has played. Our patience it about to be rewarded; and Mr. James Hurtle Fisher must shortly take his leave of the columns of the South Australian Ga- zette. The subject, however, on which one of our parting discourses is to be founded exceeds in importance and enormity all the others put together; so much so that if for any one of these Mr. Fisher deserved to be dismissed from the situation he has abused, we cannot measure what his present and peculiar ...

MR. FISHER'S PAUPER GANG. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

MR. FISHER'S PAUPER GANG. THE "PAUPERS"—poor fellows employed by Mr. FISHER at the expence of the colony, who can earn only five shillings a day each on being   dismissed from their "PUBLIC WORK" on   Brown and Morphett Streets—continue their praiseworthy labors; and the thoroughfares are consequently more encumbered than ever. It is understood that the bridge over the Tor- rens begun by Mr. Kingston will be finished on his return; and Governor Fisher differs from her Majesty's humbler representative, Governor Hindmarsh, on the policy of build- ing a prison or employing "paupers" on so useless an edifice. Indeed, Governor Fisher does not condescend so far as to consult His Excellency on the subject. He is ordered to do so indeed; but what does he care for the orders of his superiors?

I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, (Signed) E. H. POLLARD, Supercargo of the brig Dart. John Morphett, Esq., Agent to Lloyds. GENTLEMEN—I beg to hand you enclosed the copy of a letter from Mr. Pollard, super-   cargo of the brig Dart, respecting the stranding of that brig on Troubridge shoal, which I shall feel obliged by your publishing in the next number of the Gazette.

MR. CHARLES MANN. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. North Adelaide, April 3, 1838.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. JOINT STOCK SHEEP COMPANY — This com- pany, we are glad to learn, flourishes. A number of shares have already been taken in the neigh-   bouring colonies; and the capital is likely soon to be subscribed. The company will then re- quire the importation of about 10,000 sheep. JOINT STOCK CATTLE COMPANY.—It gives us   sincere pleasure to notice the spirited progress of this company, which, although set on foot but a few days ago, has been regularly constituted— its directors chosen—requisitions issued for, and accepted of, tenders for the supply of one hundred heirers or cows, and two of the best Durham bulls of pure blood that can be obtained in New South Wales. The contractor, Mr. Hill, is, we believe, already on his way for that colony for the pur- pose of selecting the cattle, and may be confidently expected here within four months. In addition to the cattle for the company, Mr. Hill intends to bring his own extensive herd and settle amongst us. ...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide March 26, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide March 26, 1838. I remain, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, MATTHEW SMITH. GENTLEMEN—In your last number of the South Australian Gazette, after reporting a case, you state that "there being no other business before the Court his Honor rose at twelve." As it was well known that my ap- plication for admission as a barrister, attorney, solicitor, and proctor of the Supreme Court was to be heard on the last day of term (the same day on which the case alluded to was decided). Notice having been three times in- serted in the Gazette, I fear that your state- ment of no other business being before the Court may lead to a supposition that I was not admitted on that day, and thus do me a serious injury in my profession. May I request that in your next number you will do me the justice. either to state the fact of my having been ad- mitted a barrister, attorney, solicitor, and proctor in the Supreme Court, or to insert this letter.<...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1838. MOST IMPORTANT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 April 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1838. MOST IMPORTANT. WE have this week the pleasing task of com- &amp;nbsp; municating an event perhaps the most inte- &amp;nbsp; resting and important that has occurred since the formation of the colony—the arrival of a large herd of cattle overland from New South Wales. On Tuesday evening last, Mr. Hawdon ar- rived at Adelaide from the Onkaparinga valley, about fifteen miles distant, where he had left his herd of 335 bullocks, cows, heifers, and horses, all in excellent health and condition after a journey of nearly one thousand miles, and occupying ten weeks. Four bullocks only we believe have been lost, and these were killed in a thunderstorm, in which Mr. Hawdon himself was slightly injured. We trust to be able to publish in our next number Mr. Haw- don's journal, and in the meantime we merely give a brief outline of his route :— Mr Hawdon descended the left bank of the Morrumbidgee, and crossed the Murray at a ford about two m...
