SALE OF LAND BY THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

SALE OF LAND BY THE GOVERNOR. WE put to rest, in our last, the despicably ma-   licious insinuation against his Excellency the Governor in reference to the sale of one of his sections, and the order regarding the removal of persons now occupying the park land. What the gang who concocted the pitiful slander will say for themselves we cannot conjecture— nor does it matter much. Will it be believed, however, that party rascality could go so far, after being in possession of a formal and au- thentic contradiction of the infamous statement, as to put forth the following ?— We [Mr. Mann] have received from a valued friend an outline of this meeting. It was held on Wednesday evening the 30th ult., at Shepherd's Hotel, and was numerously and respectably at tended. We cannot avoid quoting part of the address of one of the speakers :— "Debarred as we have hitherto been of other land," said the individual alluded to, " what are we to do if driven from this ? Tell us where we are ...

MR. FISHER AT A DEAD LOCK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

MR. FISHER AT A DEAD LOCK. " Where the purse is, there is the power," said the learned attorney for the Resident Com-   missioner, in the recent trial of the proprietors of this journal for a libel on the spotless public reputation of that most honorable functionary. " Mr. Fisher holds the purse strings," quoth Mr. Mann, and therefore possesses the power. Happily for the colony Mr. Mann is mistaken. Mr. Fisher does not hold the purse strings. The Commissioners refuse to acknowledge his   right to draw upon them. They will honor no drafts of Mr. Fisher unauthorised by their instructions. They will neither pay for pork, nor pickles, nor ponies ! Mr. Gilles the Colonial Treasurer has re- ceived peremptory instructions not to permit or pass any bills of Mr. Fisher on the Trea- surer in England for any purpose, salaries ex- cepted, not previously sanctioned by the Com- missioners, save only for the support of laboring emigrants in the event of dearth of provisio...

DINNER TO CAPTAIN SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

DINNER TO CAPTAIN SMITH. ON Monday last a dinner was given at Port Adelaide to Captain ANDREW SMITH, of the Lord Goderich, by several gentlemen passengers on board that vessel, in testimony of their respect and esteem for his character and conduct. About twenty gentlemen sat down to an excellent dinner of three courses provided by Mr. Anthony of the Port Adelaide Hotel—a new undertaking which promises to furnish the visitants of the Port with that accommodation which has been so long a desideratum. The chair was taken by Mr. A. Hg Davis, Captain Mordaunt, of the Canton, acting as Vice-President. The following toasts were drank during the evening:— " The Queen." " His Excellency the Governor and the Naval Service." " Prosperity to South Australia, wisdom in her councils, and unanimity among her colonists." The Chairman proposed the health of Captain Smith, to whose character he paid a just tribute. " Our Native Land." The Vice-President prefaced the health of " The Duke of Wellington...

POLICE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

POLICE OF THE COLONY. H. M. S. Alligator, Captain Sir J. J. G. BREMER, K.C.H., is on its way to South Australia. The Alligator will ship the ma-   rines left here by the Buffalo, and is ex- pected to remain some time on the station. The province will then be left entirely without mili- tary defence. Happily the Police Force recently established by the Governor, and rendered so effective by the activity and care of Mr. Inman, the superintendent, relieves us from any ap- prehension of danger which the withdrawal of the marines at any other time might have created. We have nothing to dread from the natives, who are but a handful and daily becoming more attached to the settlers. It is against the ruffianism of runaway convicts that the colonists have principally to guard; and in that respect we trust that by the severe example already made, and the determination of government to adopt the most vigilant sys- tem with regard to these marauders, the peace of the colony will be...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have heard that the road to the Stringy Bark Forest is to be "tolled." Why was the only practicable road not reserved ? If "An Old Hand" will com-   municate the particulars of the small special survey by the young man and the Timor poney, furnishing us at the same time with his name as a voucher for the cor- rectness of his story, we will publish it —we know nothing of private friendships in the discharge of our public duty. We wish W. M. D. would take an op- portunity, when he is sober, to write to us. The " Dinner to the Dogs" in our next. Several advertisements came too late for insertion. Our printer requests us to intimate that unless adver- tisemends are sent to the Office, at the latest before Friday   at one o'clock, their insertion cannot be ensured.

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

NEW ZEALAND. OUR readers have heard a good deal lately of a project for the colonization of New Zealand, and we are glad to understand, by letters just received from parties interested in it, that the difficulties which recently beset the enterprise are nearly overcome, and in another twelve- month its establishment may be expected. The following conversation on the subject took place in the House of Lords, on the 8th February:— The Earl of Ripon begged to remind his noble friend opposite of the question which he had put to him a few evenings back respecting a charter for a company about to be established in New Zealand. Lord GLENELG said in reference to the question which had been put to him, viz., whether the go- vernment was about to grant a charter to an asso- ciation which was proposed to be established in New Zealand, he had to answer it and to state that, after a communication which had been made by the association, or some persons on their behalf, to the government, the asso...

OPENING OF THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

OPENING OF THE MAILS. MR. MANN has printed a version of his own speech and that of Mr. Fisher, the Resident Commissioner, at the meeting of malcontents called by Mr. Gilbert, Postmaster, on the sub- ject of the Advocate-General opening the Post- office mail by authority of the Governor. Mr. Mann's dose of dull twaddle on the wonderful fact that the post can actually Waft a sigh from Indus to the Pole ! we omit, not merely from our natural aversion to puling, but for the sake of keeping our readers awake while they endeavour to wade through the harangue delivered by the inge- nious Mr. Fisher upon the same subject, in which that clever artist not only insinuates improper motives and a charge of wilful falsehood against his superior officer, the Advocate-General, but ventures upon several untruths in his own proper person. The Advocate-General, like every other gentle man in the colony, may safely disregard any remarks from that quarter; and we shall not trouble our readers with any o...

DINNER TO COLONEL LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 23 June 1838

DINNER TO COLONEL LIGHT. THE following is the principal part of the official version, published by Mr. MANN, of the dinner to Colonel LIGHT :— On Wednesday, the 5th instant, a number of gentlemen of the highest respectability in the colony sat down to dinner at Shepherd's hotel, in honor of the above highly-respected individual, J. Morphett, Esq., in the chair. After the cloth was removed the "Health of her Majesty" was drunk with three times three and much cheering. The " Royal Family" followed; after which Mr. Irons sang " The girls we love." The Chairman then rose and said—Gentlemen, in proposing the next toast I do not think it ne- cessary to preface it by any remarks, because loyalty and submission to constitutional authority have always been the pride and boast of English- men. I beg leave to give you " The health of his Excellency the Governor." I regret, gentlemen, that his Excellency and so many members of the executive government are absent from the capital at this junctur...

A FRESH JUGGLE [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

A FRESH JUGGLE OUR readers are aware that so long ago as May, 1837, the proceeds of the sale of the town acres were realised and the cash—sovereigns and bank notes—paid by Osmond Gilles, Esq., Colonial Treasurer, into the Bank ot South Australia, to the credit of George Barnes, Esq., Treasurer to the Colonial Commissioners, to be received by that officer in England. Our last advices from London state that the persons charged with the management of the Bank here have not remitted the money as they were ordered to do ; and that in consequence it has not been received by Mr. Barnes. We know not to whom the cause of this most irregular and, we will add, discreditable operation is to be attributed; but the Colonial Treasurer ought to insist upon a prompt explanation. It is possible his orders may have been evaded for some occult purpose; and his plain duty is to ascertain what has been done with the colonists' hard cash. Our suspicions are strong that there has been trickery somewhere. A...

BEAUTIES OF PICKWICK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

BEAUTIES OF PICKWICK. COMMUNICATIVE SERVANTS.—"Now, sir," ar-     gued Mr. Weller when he had concluded his report, "if I can get a talk with this here servant in the morning, he'd tell me all his master's con- cerns." "How do you know that?" interposed Mr. Pickwick. "Bless your heart, sir, servants   always do," replied Sam. Tongues.—Tongues are very good things when they aint a womans. A Landowner.—Captain Boldwig was a little fierce man in a stiff black neckerchief and a blue surtout, who, when he did condescend to walk about his premises, did it in company with a thick rattan stick with a brass ferrule, and a gardener and sub-gardener with meek faces, to whom (the gardeners—not the stick) Captain Boldwig gave his orders with all due grandeur and ferocity; for Captain Boldwig's wife's sister had married a marquis, and the captain's house was a "villa,"   and his lands "grounds," and it was all very high   and mighty...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 30. 1838. RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JUNE 30. 1838. RECAL OF GOVERNOR HINDMARSH. IF anything could have gratified Governor HINDMARSH, or compensated in some degree for the injustice with which he has been treated, it is the universal feeling of regret with which his recal has been received by the colonists of all grades, and by those especially who have been on the spot from the hour of his landing, and who, representing only their own interests and speaking only their own sen- timents, have been so desirous to express their unaffected sorrow at parting with a ruler whose honest intentions no one doubted and whose sincere desire to promote the welfare of the colonists no one denied. It seems to them, as it must appear to every unprejudiced looker- on, altogether unaccountable that Governor Hindmarsh should be personally made, in the first instance at least, the victim of the blun- dering incapacity of his councillors. With such men as the late Colonial Secretary, Ad- vocate General, and...

MR. FISHER'S SPECULATIONS STOPPED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

MR. FISHER'S SPECULATIONS STOPPED. AFTER Mr. FISHER had sold all the milch cows, imported by order of the Commissioners and for the benefit of the colonists generally, by private bargain to Mr. HACK, and thereby deprived individual settlers of the opportunity of purchasing animals essential to the health and comfort of their families, he boldly avowed that it was his intention to give Mr. Hack as far as he could a monopoly—inas-   much as he thought it would be advantageous to the colonists that Mr. Hack should possess the only dairy in the colony, and confer the great favor on the inhabitants by selling them butter at four shillings a pound, and sweet milk at one shilling and sour milk at sixpence per quart! We have been abused by the "principle of   the colony men" for exposing this and other similar unjustifiable acts of jobbery; and we have been threatened with satisfactory expla- nations of them so long that we despair of hearing anything more on the s...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE West Indies are in high force just now; estates there that did not produce anything for years past are now returning thousands of pounds. POSTAGE EXTRAORDINARY.—The Devonport   mail brought yesterday morning a "ship letter,"   in the shape of a bale of linen, to the General Post-office, St. Martin's-le-Grande, addressed "To his Excellency the French Ambassador, London," the postage of which was £318 3s. 4d.—Feb. 22. By the last accounts from China intelligence has been received that Captain Quin, in her Ma- jesty's ship Raleigh, had returned to Macao Roads on the 29th August, after a voyage to Foo-chow- foo, in the province of Fukun, whither he had proceeded, accompanied by Mr. Gutzlaff, for the purpose of obtaining from the Chinese authorities fifteen British seamen who had been wrecked on the coast. During their residence with the Chi- nese these persons have been well fed, lodged, and clad; and upon their final departure from Foo- &...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records."—SHAKSPEARE. IT was Beautru who said that at the tavern folly was sold by the bottle. LARGE FEET—Formerly large feet were much admired in France, and the length of the shoe, particularly in the fourteenth century, was a mark of distinction. The shoes of a prince were two feet and a half long ; those of a baron two feet; and those of a simple knight one foot and a half. BEAYTY.—Socrates called beauty a short ty- ranny; Plato, a privilege of nature; Theophrastus, a mute eloquence ; Diogenes, the best recom- mendation ; Theocritus, a serpent hidden under flowers; Bion, a good to which we are not en- titled. Women, who makeJheir greatest merit to consist in their beauty, should keep in mind that a beautiful woman " A bien peu de temps a I'etre, Et long-temps a ne l'etrc pas." Number of Monks in Portugal.—The number of monks in Portugal, and the accounts of their wealth, luxury, and idleness, have been much ex- aggerated. The dif...
