OPENING THE MAILS?—PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

OPENING THE MAILS—PUBLIC MEETING. A VERY silly farce, in which Mr. DAVID McLAREN, the manager of the South Aus-   tralian Company and his friend Mr. FISHER, the Resident Commissioner, were the principal performers, was enacted on Wednesday evening at the Adelaide Tavern. A meeting, at the suggestion of Messrs. Mann and Fisher, was called, by anonymous handbill, to take into consideration the terrible fact that Governor HINDMARSH had opened the mails without the authority of Mr. THOMAS GILBERT, the Post- master of Adelaide. The circumstances under which this atrocity was perpetrated are nar- rated in the following letter, read by Mr. Gil- bert at the meeting:— COLONIAL SECRETARY'S OFFICE, Adelaide, 11 th June, 1838. Sir—I am directed by his Excellency to acquaint you that on the morning; of the 8th instant some mails from Sydney and Hobart Town, addressed to this province and also to Swan River, were put on board H. M. S. Pelorus at Kangaroo Island—his Excellency and oth...

KANGAROO ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

KANGAROO ISLAND. ON Sunday morning last the Inhabitants of Kingscote were on the qui vive, occasioned by the arrival in our beautiful harbour of a ship of war. It was soon ascertained to be the Pelorus. 16 guns, commanded by Captain Harding, R.N., having on board his Excellency the Governor and several officers of the colonial government. According to arrangement made with W. Giles, Esq., J.P., the principal manager of the South Australian Company then at Kangaroo Island, his Excellency, accompanied by Captain Harding, George Stephen, Esq., the Advocate General, George Stevenson, Esq., Private Se- cretary, and several officers of the Pelorus, landed at Kingscote at ten o'clock on Monday morning under a salute from the shore and the ships in harbour. He was received by Mr. Giles and the other officers of the Company and conducted over the extensive establishment at Kingscote. We understood that, after a minute examination of the port, a landing place, and the site of a custom-house a...

ANOTHER CHOICE SPECIMEN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

ANOTHER CHOICE SPECIMEN. IT is rather singular that the party who claim to be, par excellence, the supporters of the "pure principles of the colony," should find it necessary for their purpose to resort on all occasions to misrepresentation. Their dirty falsehoods, indeed, have hitherto been to clumsily constructed that refutation has gene- rally been a work of supererogation. But the lie we are now called upon to expose is at once one of the most impudent and wicked they have ever ventured to put forth. It has been reported " all over town" by the " party" that his Excellency the Governor, having on the " 14th May issued a notice ordering every person to remove from the park lands within two months," offered for sale a few days afterwards a country section belong- ing to him "in lots of half an acre each, pro- vided there were 200 lots taken." The gentle insinuation here made is that the Governor was driving the poor colonists from the park land with a view to force them to purchas...

COL. LIGHT AND MR. KINGSTON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

COL. LIGHT AND MR. KINGSTON. WE have it from a sure hand that Mr. KINGS-   TON, who went home in the Rapid in the ho-   norable character of Mr. Fisher's ambassador has, among many other wonderful tales, stated to the Commissioners and others interested in the colony, that the whole system of survey pursued by Colonel Light was radically wrong, and that if his (Mr. Kingston's) plan had been followed the whole of the preliminary sections might have been completed within three months. Mr Kingston has even submitted to the Com- missioners a diagram according to which the survey ought to be conducted; and this has been sent out to the Surveyor-General, if not positively for his adoption, at least for his very serious consideration. Now, however much we may slight the judgment shown by Colonel Light in the choice of a capital, or lament that want of firmness which has suffered too many of his subordinates to trifle with the public interests, and that weak- ness ...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 1838. RECAL OF THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 1838. RECAL OF THE GOVERNOR. WE publish in another page all the information received since our last regarding the reported recal of the Governor. The proceedings of the meeting at the Crown and Anchor Tavern read very strangely in South Australia where the facts are known ; and the observations of Mr. WAKEFIELD in particular are curious as showing the extent to which that shrewd theorist has been imposed upon. Long ere now, however, he is fully aware of the error; and we somewhat mistake his character if he be the man to thank the parties who have so egregiously duped him. When we state and   defy contradictions to our assertion that the capitalists of South Australia, the settlers who are on the spot and who are in their own per- sons the largest landholders in the province, have given their utmost support to the public measures of the Colonial Government, and that they have had disputes only with Mr. Fisher, the Commissioners' ...

MESSRS. IMLAY AND HILL'S EXCURSION TO THE RIVER MURRAY, JANUARY, 1838. [FROM THE AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

MESSRS. IMLAY AND HILL'S EXCURSION TO THE RIVER MURRAY, JANUARY, 1838. [FROM THE AUSTRALIAN.] HAVING a few days to spare, and wishing to see a little of the country about Adelaide before leaving, I proposed to Mr. Hill (with whom I had been acquainted in New South Wales) to make an excursion in our bush style to the banks of the Murray; to which he readily assented: and the weather proving favorable we started (attended by a servant and a native black of Twofold Bay, with the requisite bush equipments), at four P.M. the 23d January, travelling in a north-easterly direction till we reached a romantic valley where the Torrens leaves the mountain ; here, hobbling our horses, we made a large fire by the trunk of a fallen tree, and took up our quarters for the night. Allowing our horses to have travelled at the rate of four miles per hour, we estimated being twelve miles from town. In the vicinity of Adelaide, the soil is of a reddish color, and not very deep, lying on a solid bed of lim...

THE TIMOR PONEY JOB. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

THE TIMOR PONEY JOB. BEFORE we make our final bow to the accom-   plished Mr. FISHER we have a few words to say of the last grand feat performed by him as colonial "purse" holder of the Commissioners. In September last, when the weather began to grow sultry, and elderly officials would rather ride than walk, and young gentlemen surveyors yearned more to smoke their cigars on horseback than to follow a chain on foot, it occurred to Mr. Fisher that the survey, which had hitherto been lagging sadly, might be finished at a gallop, provided a force of 100 Timor ponies—or rats as they are called at the Mauritius—could be directed upon it. The idea was a bright one. The ponies could be of no possible use to the survey if they were got. The season was the wrong one: nine-tenths of the poor animals were sure to perish by reason of the heat known to prevail during that period; so no time was to be lost in sending for them. The Colonial Treasurer was coaxed out of £600 of the publ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. OVERLAND COMMUNICATION WITH NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 June 1838

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. OVERLAND COMMUNICATION WITH NEW SOUTH WALES. THE successful result of the enterprise of Mr. HAWDON has naturally excited much interest in the sister colonies, and we have good autho-   rity for stating that several of the largest stock- holders on the western borders of New South Wales are making active preparations to start early in the ensuing spring with numerous herds of cattle. Captain Sturt, accompanied by Mr. Giles Strangwats, may be expected overland in about ten days with a herd of fine cattle. Indeed there seems no reason to doubt that the practicability and safety of the journey will by next summer be so well ascertained as to admit travellers proceeding by land to Sydney without difficulty. At a dinner lately given to Mr. Hawdon in Adelaide, that gentleman announced his in- tention of returning overland to South Austra- lia as a settler; and he stated that he had de- termined to bring with him a large flock of sheep. We have in this de...

CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

CANADA. THE news from Lower Canada declares all the principal places to be in a condition of the utmost peace and security, while the insurgents are only heard of in quarters where they have but little to fear. Quebec is strongly invested both with re- gular troops and volunteers: the guns have been mounted on the ramparts and citadel, and every- thing has been done to increase the natural strength of the place. Accounts from Montreal mention the arrest of several leading individuals of the rebel party. Amongst these was Bouchitte, late editor of the Quebec Liberal, and Kimbcrt, who was deeply con- cerned in the first movement. No less than seventeen individuals were committed to gaol at Montreal, on charges of high treason (December 10). The authorities at St. Cesaire and the vi- cinity were proceeding with great vigilance in making arrests. The principal rendezvous of the rebels appears to be at Grand Brule, where they are pillaging the houses of the farmers, driving away oxen and...

ROUTE TO ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

ROUTE TO ENCOUNTER BAY. THE following letter has been published by Mr. STEPHEN HACK, and we have pleasure in giving it a place in our columns. Political differences of opinion with Mr. Hack and his brother will never prevent our doing justice to their value and enterprise as colonists. We may hint, however, that in this instance a less ambitious title might have been adopted. It is not usual, even in Australia, to designate the fact that no road exists in a particular di- rection—an " important discovery" :— " IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. " I have been of opinion for some time that there might be a better track than the one now in use to Encounter Bay, and therefore last week proceeded direct to Mount Barker, from whence I struck to the S.S.W. expecting to find an easy access to the Bay in that direction. After travelling about thirty-five miles, keeping a high range on my right, I came to a salt water river, running out of a high barren range apparently at the back of the Aldinghi Plains. ...

ENGLISH NEWS. DESTRUCTIVE CONFLAGRATION. TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF THE ROYAL EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

ENGLISH NEWS. DESTRUCTIVE CONFLAGRATION. TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF THE ROYAL EXCHANGE. AN event, which may be regarded as a national calamity, occurred last night—the Royal Exchange is a heap of ruins—a destructive fire has laid waste this extensive commercial building, one of the most magnificent in Europe. Soon after ten o'clock last night the fire broke out in Lloyd's Coffee-room, at the north-east corner of the edifice, opposite the Bank of England. It was first dis- covered by one of the Bank watchmen, who gave the alarm at the gates, and the Bank engines were immediately brought. A strong body of the city police and night watchmen and the soldiers on duty in the Bank immediately repaired to the spot, and expresses went off in all directions to the fire-engine stations, at which period no signs of any fire could be seen from the street. Con- siderable difficulty was experienced in obtaining an entrauce to the building, and when this was accomplished the flames broke through the win-...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS " Trivial fond records." —SHAKSPEARE. SUPERFICIAL ATTAINMENTS.—The art of making a show in the world at small expence is not among the most despicable. It is astonishing how, possessed of this power, the most superficial persons manage to make themselves or conse- quence. It is true that this importance can only be ephemeral, for when the public come to their senses and begin to analyse what has so astonished them, their wounded ranity generally revenges itself upon the unlucky pretender: instance the host of small authors and commentators who, falling under the lash of Pope and Swift, met with no mercy from these pitiless satirists, and now are remembered only as the subjects of their biting epigrams. The man who is acquainted with everything knows nothing; for in the mistaken idea that it is the variety of knowledge that must distinguish him, he fritters away upon endless mutterings powers which, if concentrated upon one or two subjects, would imm...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 23. 1838. LATEST NEWS FROM ENGLAND. BY the Rapid we have London papers to the 26th February. The Canadian revolt was totally put down. A bill had passed both Houses of Parliament to suspend the legislative assemblies of the Canadian provinces for the period of two years. The Earl of Gosford is recalled, aud the Earl of Durham goes out as Governor General. Many of the insurgent leaders have been captured and their property confiscated and sold. M'Kenzie, the chief mover of the sedition in Upper Canada was in the United States. The following extracts from the last despatch received from Lord Gosford had been read in Parliament: — Thus have the measures adopted for putting down this reckless revolt been crowned with entire success. Wherever an armed body has shown itself, it has been completely dispersed; the principal instigators and leaders have been killed, taken, or forced into exile; there is no longer a head, concert, or organization amongst ...

RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. WE understand that a despatch from Lord GLENELG has been received by the Governor, in which his lordship states that in consequence of the strong representation of the Coloniza- turn Commissioners, he hod determined to advise her Majesty to relieve his Excellency of the government of South Australia. In making known this determination, Lord Glenelg states the unaffected reluctance with which it was adopted, and that nothing had occurred in the proceedings of the Governor to detract from the opinion his Lordship originally entertained of his Excellency's character as an officer and a gentleman. In our next we shall enter fully into an investigation of the means by which this result has been effected. We may state now that the Commissioners have been grossly imposed upon by false information, and that they have acted upon it From certain hints contained in a private letter written by a gen- tleman high in office on the 23d February, we have some reason to ...
