MR. FISHER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
MR. FISHER. THERE is every reason to believe that Mr. Fisher has been relieved from the office of Resident Commissioner. We have been fa- &nbsp; vored with the perusal of letters received by the Lord Goderich written by gentlemen who have access to the best information, from which we gather that the private sales of the Com- missioners' draught oxen by Mr. Fisher to himself and his family, of pork and other stores to Mr. E. Stephens, and several of Mr. Fisher's proceedings in reference to the Colonial Government, had created so much dissatisfaction that there was no doubt of his being immediately superseded. "We are sure that the colonists generally, as well as every individual sincerely desirous of the prosperity of the province, will rejoice at this event. It is high time that order should be taken with the party whose only object has been to trifle with the great interests entrusted to their care, and which, professing to " hold the interests of the colony paramount to th...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. Trivial fond records. — SHAKSPEARE. LANGUAGES-It is pretended that Charles V. esteemed the Spanish language above all others. Let us cite P. Bouhours:—"If Charles V. were to return into the world he would not be pleased tbat you should prefer the French language to the Castilian; for he used to say that, 'If he were to speak to ladies, he would speak Italian ; that if he were to speak to men, he would speak French; that if he were to speak to his horse, he would speak High Dutch ; but that if he were to speak to God, he would speak Spanish.' 'He ought to have said, without any more ado,' replied Eugenius, 'that the Castilian was the natural language of God, as a learned cavalier of that country said one day; who maintained, in a good company, that in the terrestial paradise, the serpent spoke English, the woman Italian, the man French, but that God spoke Spanish.' " This differs much from what was said by a Spaniard to a German: —" The Ger- mans do...
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. I am, Gentlemen, Your obliged obedient servant, Y. B. HUTCHINSON. GENTLEMEN, —It is with great reluctance I beg to intrude myself so soon again on your columns, and on the patience of your readers, but I feel myself compelled to take some notice of the frivolous and malicious affidavit of Mr. Fisher, and the accompanying docu- ments, which appeared in your last number. In order to be as brief as possible, I shall at once enter on a few remarks on their contents, and therefore passing over what Mr. Fisher says he " verily believes," the first assertion I come to is that " I stated in court that I had written such letter to him to provoke him to be the first aggressor, in order that I might give him the benefit of my trusty walking stick," or words to that effect. Now what I said was this—Mr. Fisher having made some taunting remark in my presence in court, I re- joined, " If you had wished to act towards me, as yo...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. BY the Seppings, arrived at Hobart Town, intelligence from LONDON up to the 13th November has been received. The following are the extracts which the Van Diemen's Land juurnals furnish:— THE QUEEN'S VISIT TO THE CITY. The Queen's visit to the great city of London entertainment seems to occupy exclusively public attention. It must have been one of the most magnificent pageants with which the people of the metropolis have for several years past been gratified. The morning of the great day, the 9th of &nbsp; November, was ushered in with the usual cere- monies, the hoisting of flags at the churches, and the joyous peals of their bells. The preparations &nbsp; in the course of the whole " line of march," that is to say, from Pimlico-palace along Pall-mall, the Strand to Temple Bur, thence by Fleet-street, Ludgatc-hill, round Saint Paul's Cathedral, Cheapside, King-street, to the Guildhall, were of the most splendid description. The club houses, taver...
POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
POLICE FORCE. WE are glad to announce the formation of an efficient police force, and one which we trust will enable the colony to get rid of the worthless and desperate vagabonds who have lately been congregating in such numbers from the neigh- bouring colonies. Ten mounted policemen, with an equal number of foot, are considered sufficient in the present emergency, although, if the marines be not also retained, double that force will yet be required. We regret to state that every obstacle has been thrown in the way of obtaining the ne- cessary funds to meet the expences of the police establishment by Mr. Resident Commissioner and his friend Mr. Edward Stephens, cashier of the South Australian Bank. Mr. Fisher, who paid £800 for the canal job without hesitation, positively refused to draw on the Commissioners for a single penny to keep the peace of the colony. Nor was he content with a simple re- fusal, he ventured so far as to declare pub- licly that any bills drawn by the Colonial...
THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1838. DUTIES ON SPIRITS, WINE, &c. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1838. DUTIES ON SPIRITS, WINE, &c. OUR readers will perceive that duties have been imposed on spirits, wine, and tobacco. The tax on these articles is said to be similar to that levied in Van Diemen's Land. The licensed victuallers complain not only of its amount, but of their being obliged to continue to pay an expensive licence-duty as retailers of com- modities which have now been subjected to heavy taxation. As to the first of these points, it is a difficult matter to ascertain what the proper rate of duty ought to be. We hold it to be impossible, under any system of custom duties, entirely to prevent smuggling, especially on a frontier so extensive as our own; and it is clear that ex- cessive duties offer greater temptations to engage in that nefarious traffic. The Colonial Government, however, will no doubt adopt energetic measures to protect the fair trader. With regard to spirit licences, we think the annual tax of £50 ought...
OPINIONS ON SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
OPINIONS ON SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have occasionally gathered from the journals of the neighbouring provinces their opinions on the state and prospects of this young colony, and presented them to our readers. We shall con- tinue to do this, even when such opinions are evidently founded on mis-representation. The Sydney Colonist has for its correspondent a Mr. Morphett, and we therefore can only expect from Dr. Lang the impressions made upon his mind by statements colored according to the ideas of a party which places the order of authorities in the province thus :— First and Chief—The " Commissioners' Governor"—Mr. Fisher. Second —The Emigration Agent—Mr. John Brown. Third and last —The Crown—represented by Captain .J. Hindmarsh, R.N., K.H., Her Majesty's Governor and Commander-in-Chief. Such are the democratic temptations held out in the Cornwall Chronicle by Mr. Mor- phett's friends (Gouger aud Co.) to induce respectable settlers to emigrate to South Australia! The Sydney Gazette, wh...
ANOTHER SPECULATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
ANOTHER SPECULATION. THE Lord Hobart, Hawson, master, arrived on Sunday last from Timor, with ponies on account of the Colonization Commissioners, after a boisterous passage of sixty-seven days. We regret to state that out of one hundred and eleven ponies shipped, only eight were landed alive, two of which have since died. Mr Birdseye, who superintended the cargo, attri- butes the mortality to the extreme heat near Timor and the stormy passage. That gentle- man, we are informed, hesitated when at Sydney to prosecute the voyage, because of the period of the year at which it was undertaken; but was he compelled to proceed by the agent at that port, of the South Australian Company, to whom the vessel belonged, who would not con- sent to any deviation from the charter party. The consequence has been the heavy loss we have mentioned. No blame is attachable to Mr. Birdseye, whose ability and attention are unquestioned. Such, however, has been the unfortunate result of another of Mr. Resid...
THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
THEATRE. THE Ladies and Gentlemen and Public gene- rally of Adelaide and its vicinity are re- &nbsp; spectfully informed that a Theatre is now fitting up in Franklin street, after the unique plan of the Parisian Minor Theatres, embracing merely a Pit and nine separate Dress Boxes, with distinct entrances, as well as having the comfort of a Box Saloon, where refreshments of every descrip- &nbsp; tion will be provided. The Company is respect- able, and it is hoped will be sufficiently effective to relieve the dull tedium of our long winter evenings, at least once or twice a week. The &nbsp; Orchestra is cure to be efficient, as the leader's name will guarantee. It is expected that the Theatre will be ready to open by next Monday fortnight, previously to which time handbills will be issued, containing a programme of the fare for the evening.

IMPORTATION OF STOCK OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALES.

IMPORTATION OF STOCK OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALES. His Excellency the Governor has directed the following letter addressed to him by Mr. HAWDON, to be made public for general infor- mation:— Adelaide, April 5, 1838. SIR—In accordance with your Excellency's wish, I take the earliest opportunity to lay before your Excellency an account of my journey across the interior of the country from New South Wales to this colony. In proving the practicability of bringing stock from the sister colony by land, I have been sin- gularly fortunate, having brought with me more than three hundred horned cattle in excellent condition, losing only four animals by the journey. The cattle were driven from their station on the River Hume to the Port Phillip mail establish- ment on the Goulburn River, at which place they were met by the drays conveying supplies for the journey, from Port Phillip, on the 23rd of January. My intended route was to follow the course of this river to the point where Major Mitch...
THE SLANDERERS OF THE COLONY ?—COLONEL TORRENS' OPINION?—ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
THE SLANDERERS OF THE COLONY —COLONEL TORRENS' OPINION— ENCOUNTER BAY. ON the 24th February last we published an editorial letter to the Colonization Commis- &nbsp; sioners of South Australia, in which will be found the following passage:— " Now, the remarkable fact to which we must draw your attention is that the whole water communication of the territory of New South Wales flows into South Australia. Look at the map and you will see at a glance that the natural outlet of its most fertile regions is that Port of South Australia which connects itself most directly with the river Murray, the "grand trunk" and highway of all. The farmer to the westward and northward of the Blue Mountains, and of the Australian Alps or White Mountains of New South Wales, is in fact nearer to the markets of South Australia when 1200 miles distant by water than he is to the Port of Sydney when distant 300 miles by land. The inhabitants of Yass plains on the Murrum- bidgee, and of all the navigabl...

THE LORD GODERICH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 April 1838
THE LORD GODERICH. THIS long-expected vessel has at length ar rived after a tedious passage of six months. The detention was occasioned principally by some unpleasant differences between the pas sengers and the captain. In order to settle them, the ship put into Bahia, and proceeded afterwards to Rio de Janeiro, under the charge of Lieutenant Edwards of H.M.S. Samarang, then at the former port. At Rio, the differences were considered so serious, that Mr. Hesketh, the English Consul there, thought it his duty to put the ship and passengers under the su perintendence of Mr. Wethem, master's as sistant of H.M.S. Lyra. We regret to learn that these unhappy dif ferences continued throughout the entire voyage; and that actions and counter actions &nbsp; in the Courts of the province have already been commenced by the parties who consider them selves aggrieved. The Canton was expected to sail on De- cember 1st, and may be hourly expected.

SELECTION OF COUNTRY SECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 May 1838
SELECTION OF COUNTRY SECTIONS. ON Thursday last the selection of "preliminary country sections" out of more than 100,000 acres reported as surveyed around Adelaide, was completed. Out of the 437 preliminary sections, only 213, or one-half, have been chosen in the land offered within from eight to ten miles of the town. Light sections have been reserved for choice in the district of Adelaide yet unsurveyed; eight sections for &nbsp; the country between this and Onkaparinga; twelve for the district of Onkaparinga; sixty nine for the districts of Yankalilla and Rapid Bay; forty-four for the district of Encounter Bay; ten for Cape Jervis; and fourteen for Kangaroo Island. The remaining sections belong to absentees, who, of course, lose their order of choice. We do not vouch for the per feet correctness of the above, as Mr. Re- sident Commissioner Fisher has not thought proper to publish any official account of se- lections; but we are certain we are not far from the truth.
