THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

THE SURVEY. Some strange scenes, we are informed, have been enacted during the past week in the survey department, which has been brought to a stand-still by the arrival from England of Mr. Kingston. It js reported that Colonel Light, the present Surveyor General, is to be superseded by Mr. Kingston if that officer decline to adopt the newly discovered method of surveying, by which, according to its clever projector, the survey can be completed in three months! We have not been favored with any detail of Mr. Kingston's valuable plan, and cannot say whether that gentleman is to employ steam ; but it is quite clear that the known methods will be found insufficient for his pur- pose. One thing at least is certain, that the new Surveyor General will be allowed to pro- ceed with his work free from interruption. The officers of the survey have to a man de- clared they will not work with or under Mr. Kingston. How the matter is to be ultimately arranged a few days will discover. It is said...

SALE BY AUCTION. HIGHLY VALUABLE FREEHOLD INVESTMENT, Capable of producing £400 per annum. MR. ROBERT COCK has been honored with instructions from the Proprietor to submit to public competition an exceedingly valuable FREEHOLD PROPERTY, presenting an investment without risk, and standing alone for its permanent eligibility It may be said, indeed, that so valuable and safe an investment will not be brought into the market for many a year to come. To do justice to such a property, nay, even to enumerate a tithe of its many advantages, would require the pen of the inimitable Robins ; but it is gra- tifying to think that it possesses such strong claims to the attention of the capitalist, that a feeble description to accompany the bare an- nouncement of the Sale will suffice to create great competition. The property comprises TWO PRELIMINARY COUNTRY SECTIONS, selected with great care and judgment on the admired BANKS OF THE TORRENS, that beautiful River running through and dividing the L...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE PARK LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE PARK LAND. I, am, &c., CIVIS. I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, ANDREW SMITH. Port Adelaide, June 28, 1838. Your most obedient servant, STEPHEN WHETTEM, R.N. June 23, 1838. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN—I beg to call the attention of the public to the wholesale destruction of the trees which is going on in the park land. In the first place, the white people themselves, as well as the blacks under their direction, have already stripped a large portion of the trees entirely of their branches; but as the remedy for this is simple enough, and new branches will sprout out, it is not of much permanent consequence.   In addition to this, however, many of the best trees are actually cut down, split up, and carried away. The other cause, for which it will be more difficult to find a remedy, arises from the ne- cessities of the natives themselves, who seem to have nearly abandoned the country, or at least to have m...

ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

ENCOUNTER BAY. WE observe that his Excellency has at length resolved on an act of justice to the inhabitants of Kingscote and Encounter Bay, and that both those beautiful anchorages have been de- clared legal ports. The fears, therefore, that Kingscote, the chief location of the South Australian Company, would be converted into a smuggling depot may be dismissed, as an officer will be forthwith despatched to that place to superintend the imports and afford due protection to the fair trader. It is, however, to Encounter Bay that the eyes of all the well informed colonists are directed. Victoria Harbour, under Granite Island, now declared a port, must become the port of Lake Alexandrina and of the great River Murray. Every day brings us fresh reason to believe in the perfect security of the harbour. We have the testimony to this effect of many experienced sailors, not to mention the strong opinions of Captain Crozier, of H.M.S. Victor; Captain Harding, of H.M.S. Pelorus ; Captain Lips...

MESSRS. IMLAY AND HILL'S EXCURSION TO THE RIVER MURRAY, JANUARY, 1838. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 30 June 1838

MESSRS. IMLAY AND HILL'S EXCURSION TO THE RIVER MURRAY, JANUARY, 1838. (Continued.) We found among the reeds at the edge of the river a canoe, made fast by a rope to a stake driven into the mud. It was very different from those I had seen along the coast, being constructed of a large sheet of thin bark, about fourteen feet in length and two and a half in breadth, round at both ends, with the edges elevated about an inch at the stern, and gradually rising forward to a foot at the bow; towards the stern was the remains of a fire-place in a small mould of damp earth, on which muscles had been lately cooked. We left a fishing line and some hooks in the canoe to show the natives that we did not visit them with any hostile intention. Nothing could afford a more striking difference between a savage and a civilized people than the contemplation of the rude bark before us, com- pared with the complicated construction of the machinery of steam vessels; and yet our own forefathers, about two t...

ENCOUNTER DAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 July 1838

ENCOUNTER BAY. Y. B. H. GENTLEMEN—In case Mr. Finniss should not furnish you with the information which you sought of him relating to the township at En- counter Bay in your last number I beg to                 answer your question myself. The town acres have been measured—a part of them two or three miles up a valley out of sight of the sea, and the rest of them, not opposite Victor Har-     bour, but all along the bay from Granite Island towards Rosetta Harbour, where there is no anchorage for ships and no landing place for boats. The form of this town is to be about three miles in length and seventy yards! in width. What ought to be town land is reserved as a country section, by which the public will be excluded from all chance of obtaining a town acre by open competition, but will be at the mercy of the person who holds the first choice there, who str...

SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Received by the Secretary of State for the Colonies, on the 27th December 1837. SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMMISSION, December 22, 1837. My LORD—We beg permission, in compliance with the 16th section of the Act 4 and 5 William IV., c. 95, to present to your lordship a detailed report of our proceedings from the date of our               First Annual Report to the present time. EXTENT OF EMIGRATION.

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. JULY 7, 1838. SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 July 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1838. SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. THE Report for last year is meagre and unsatis-   factory. With the exception of a long letter from Mr. JOHN MORPHETT we have transferred it verbatim to our last page, that our readers may form their own opinions of its contents. Mr. Morphett's epistle, which the Commissioners seem to have printed for sheer lack of mat- ter, is little more than the professional flourish of a land agent, and just such a description as Mr. Puff or GEORGE ROBINS would indite if the province were to be brought to the ham- mer, with this difference, perhaps, that Mr. Robins would probably consider it expedient to found his bombast upon facts. Mr. Morphett, for instance, tells the Commissioners that the " Gulf St. Vincent is without island, rock, reef, or sand-bank, and navigable by a stranger in the darkest night by means of the lead." Now we respectfully submit to Mr. Pollard, late of the ...

THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 7 July 1838

THE SURVEY. COLONEL LIGHT has withdrawn from the Survey and Mr. KINGSTON is now Surveyor-   general! Some of the causes of this strange overturn may be gathered from the correspon- dence which we subjoin ; but others, which do not lie upon the surface, are yet to be revealed —and these we shall state, without scruple or hesitation, in an early number. In the mean- time all progress in the survey is arrested, and what the result will be is impossible to con- jecture. Really Mr. FISHER'S ambassador to England has made a very pretty kettle of fish   of the whole affair. The following is the letter of resignation addressed by the Surveyors to the Resident Commissioner, which has been transmitted to us for publication:— (COPY. ) Adelaide, July 2, 1838. Sir—The Officers of the Survey who subscribe this letter having received intimation that Mr. Kingston is to superintend the survey of public land in the colony, have the honor to submit to you their intentions to ...
