THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1838. RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 May 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1838. RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. "A numerous meeting of gentlemen interested in the colony of South Australia was hold on Thurs-   day afternoon at the Crown and Anchor Tavern for the purpose of agreeing to certain resolutions in reference to the appointment of a new Go- vernor to this colony in the event of the recal of Captain Hindmarsh, which, it appears, is in con- templation. Mr. Raikes Currie presided. It is stated that the disputes which had arisen between the respectable colonists of South Australia and Captain Hindmarsh had made it necessary that   some other Governor should be appointed. Re- solutions were agreed to expressive of the im- portance of having a person appointed as Governor who should possess the confidence, of the colonists, and of those in England who take an interest in the affairs of the new colony. A deputation was also appointed to wait on the Colonization Com- missioners to express a h...

MR. JAMES HURTLE FISHER AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 May 1838

MR. JAMES HURTLE FISHER AND THE PRESS. OUR readers will see from the trial we publish at great length, that Mr. HURTLE FISHER has ventured into court in defence, as he proclaimed, of his public character, and that he has sneaked out of it without having dared to answer a single question put to him touching his doings as Resident Commissioner. It was a Bir- mingham jury, we think, who, in a case against a man for beating his wife, delivered their verdict in the. following elegant terms:—. " Brought in — done it — but sarved her right !" We believe, had the jury, who have just dis- charged their consciences by so original an opinion on the laws of evidence and libel, been left to expound their notions in their own phraseology, a verdict somewhat similar to that of their enlightened brethren of Brum- magem would have been the result. To say nothing at present of the strange proceedings on the trial, and of other equally serious matters affecting the capability of a jury, com- posed of ...

SPECIAL SURVEY?—ANOTHER SHUFFLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 May 1838

SPECIAL SURVEY—ANOTHER SHUFFLE. WE are informed that the South Australian Company's agents have declared that they re-   serve a number of their preliminary sections for a special survey. We know not if Mr. Fisher has agreed to this scheme, but we can inform the landholders that such a proceeding as altogether illegal and unjustifiable, and that   its effect would be similar to most of Mr. Fisher's proceedings, and deprive the emigration fund of a large sum of money. No special survey can be granted till after the preliminary lands are allotted, and only then on the payment into the Treasury of £4OOO. As preliminary purchasers, the Company have no right beyond those possessed by individual proprietors, and what is more, Mr. Fisher can give them none were he ever so tempted. It would be a capital stroke, no doubt, if the price paid for the re- served preliminary sections were to be received   in part payment of the sum fixed by the Com- missione...

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 May 1838

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH. MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN.—I have thought it right to assemble you for the transaction of pub-   lic business at the earliest convenient period after the dissolution of the late Parliament. It is with great satisfaction that I received from all foreign powers the strongest assurances of their friendly dispositions, and of their earnest desire to cultivate and maintain with me the re- lations of amity; and I rejoice in the prospects that I shall be able to promote the best interests of my subjects by securing to them the advan- tages of peace. I lament that civil war still afflicts the kingdom of Spain; I continue to exercise with fidelity, the engagements of my crown with the Queen of Spain, according to the stipulations of the treaty of quadruple alliance. I have directed a Treaty of Commerce which I have concluded with the United Republic of Peru and Bolivia to be laid before you, and I hope soon to be able to communicate to you similar results of my ...

EXECUTION OF MAGEE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 May 1838

EXECUTION OF MAGEE. The execution of Michael Magee, the man who was tried on 12th April, and found guilty of shooting at with intent to kill, Mr. Samuel Smart, the late Sheriff of the province, took place on Wednesday, May 2d; and from the fact of its being the first in this province, of course attracted a great number of the po- pulace, there being upwards of 500 present. The place of execution was about a hundred yards from the iron stores in North Adelaide. The unfortunate man was perfectly resigned to his fate, and had to all appearance made the best use of the short time alloted to him. During his removal to the place of execution, he was in fervent prayer, attended by Mr. Phillip, a gentleman of the Catholic persuasion, and the Rev. C. B. Howard, the Colonial Chaplain. Some time after having ascended the scaffold, he addressed the people and said   he wished to impress upon the minds of those present that he was guilty, and acknowledged the justice of his sentence...

IMPORTANT FROM UPPER CANADA. CAPTURE OF TORONTO BY THE INSURGENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

IMPORTANT FROM UPPER CANADA. CAPTURE OF TORONTO BY THE INSURGENTS. THE Governor of Upper Canada, Sir Francis Head, it seems, counted too strongly upon the loyalty of the inhabitants, when, in answer to an application from the Governor of Lower Canada inquiring what portion of the regular troops in the Upper Province could he spared if necessary, he laconically replied " All." The disaffected in the Upper Province have takon advantage of the absence of the regular troops from the immediate vicinity, and made a dash upon Toronto, which they have captured. A government express passed through Belleville with intelligence that the pa- triots had assembled, and were in arms in the vi- cinityof Toronto to the number of 5,000, headed by Mr. M'Kenzie and Parker. The following letter to Mr. David M'Davy will explain the matter:— Queenston, December 6, 1837. Dear Sir—I write to you in great haste to in- form you of what at least to us is interesting and important; Captain Whitney has just arri...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. PROPOSED RECAL OF THE GOVERNOR OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. PROPOSED RECAL OF THE GOVERNOR OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. A rather numerous and highly respectable meeting of gentlemen interested in the colony of South Australia was held on the 2nd January, at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, for the purpose of agreeing to certain resolutions in reference to tbc appointment of a new Governor to this colony, in the event of the recal of Captain Hindmarsh, R. N., which it appears is in contemplation. Raikes Currie, Esq., was called to the chair, and stated the object of the meeting, which was, he said, not to put forward or nominate any in- dividual themselves, but to impress upon the Com- missioners the necessity of making that appoint- ment only after the strictest investigation into the claims and fitness of the respective candidates who should present themselves for the office. He said his knowledge with respect to his business was comparatively scanty; but there was a gen- tleman present who was possessed of ample in- formation on the s...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette ADVOCATE-GENERAL'S OFFICE, May 23, 1838. I am, yours, &c., GEO. STEPHEN, Advocate-General.   I am, yours, GENTLEMEN —I have observed in the report of the trial of the case "The Queen v. Messrs. Stevenson and Thomas," contained in your number of the 19th instant, that the Advocate- General appears to be frequently taking a part in the proceedings, though not engaged in the trial. Although our Supreme Court upon that oc- casion was more distinguished for the liberty of speech, of which Englishmen are wont to boast, than that order and solemnity which usually pervade British courts of justice, I should be sorry for the opinion to go abroad that, although bound by my office to support order, I was so ignorant of propriety as to have in- truded myself without "proper cause." I trust you will therefore do me the justice to ad- mit in your next number that my presence in the court was solicited by ...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records." —SHAKSPEARE. THE inhabitants of Luxemburgh believed that each planet had a particular place consecrated to it in that duchy; and that anciently in the town of Arlon there was an altar of the moon : several images of the false gods were found there, and many medals and inscriptions. Peter Ernest, Count of Mansfelt, removed them to Luxemburgh to adorn a fountain which he consecrated to the memory of his wife; and he caused a magnificent house to be built near it. The inscription of this fountain is a notable monument of conjugal af- fection. Here is the translation:— " Whoever thou art that comest hither to avoid the heat or to quench thy thirst, thou mayest be re- freshed here agreeably and undisturbed. Take up the water with thy hand, wash thy mouth; trouble it not with thy feet, nor pollute it with thy naked body, for he has consecrated these gentle waters to the peaceful manes of his most dear wife; and, from her name Mar...

MEETING TO CONSIDER THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. A MEETING was got up at the Adelaide Tavern on the 2d instant to consider the state of the courts of justice and the administration of the law. As it was generally understood that violent speeches were to be made iig.iir.st everybody and everything, a number of curious and idle persons of course collected. Mr. Bright spoke at considerable length, but in so low a tone of voice that few persons could hear what he said. He moved the following resolution . —" That independence and impartiality in a Judge are essential to the due administration of justice; and that the meeting view with alarm and apprehension the avowed subjection of any person holding that office to illegitimate influence under his sole jurisdiction."— Carried. Mr. Morphett moved " That a speedy adminis- tration of justice is essential to its due operation, and that unnecessary delay is in the nature of a denial of justice."— Carried. Mr. Pollard moved " That freedom of...
