THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JULY, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 July 1837

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JULY, 1837. THE principles of Colonization upon which the Province of South Australia is founded must be perfectly known to every one connected with it. These principals indeed have been so fully disclosed in the writings of the early projectors       of the Colony, in the publications of the Com-       missioners, and in the first number of this   Journal, that we need not on the present occa-   sion advert to them at length. On that fea-   ture, however, which distinguishes our Pro- vince from all other of His Majesty's colonial possessions, namely, the survey, sale, and       general management of Public Lands, inde-         pendent of the Colonial Government, a few         words may be permitted, the more especially as some difficulty has ari...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 July 1837

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. We have the pleasure of announcing the ar- rival at Adelaide, of Mr. McLAREN, the Com-   mercial and Bank Manager of the Company. The announcement in this days' paper of the Sale by Messrs. FISHER BROTHERS by Public Auction, of various articles of general utillity, is the first fruits of Mr. McLaren's management, and we are glad to learn that   it is his intention to keep the Colonists sup- plied in this manner, by occasional Sales, as the state of the market and other circumstances may direct. THE CYGNET.—The fears expressed in our last for the safety of this vessel, have happily, not been realised. After a passage of thirteen weeks of almost continual storm, she has arri- ved in Encounter Bay. We are informed that the stock of sheep on board have suffered severely,   and that a very small proportion of them were landed safely.   THE TAM O'SHANTER. — This vessel, we are happy to say, by the exertions of her com- mande...

SESSION OF GAOL DELIVERY. May 13, 15, and 18, 1837. Before His Honor, Sir John Jeffcott, Knight, Chief Judge of the Province. James Hoare was placed at the bar charged with stealing a flitch of bacon from the store of Mr. Williams. The Advocate General, Mr Mann, stated that as this was the first public prosecution which had       occurred in the province, that it would scarcely be     deemed irrelevant, if he stated succinctly the prin-   ciples which would guide him in the performance       of the duties devolving on him.   As public prosecutor, he conceived it to be his         duty, without fear or favour, to bring before the   jury evidence of all the facts which might to be re-   quisite to enable them to detect and punish the       guilty; but he ...

TRANSPORTATION OF STOCK FROM NEW SOUTH WALL[?], OVER [?]. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 July 1837

TRANSPORTATION OF STOCK FROM NEW SOUTH WALES, OVERLAND.   I have the honour to be, Gentlemen Your most Obedient Servant, RAPHAEL CLINT. Surveyor, Sydney     P..... the period that Lieutenant FIELD R.N. and Messrs BARNARD and FISHER,were at Sydney as Commissioners from this Government to purchase supplies for the use of the Colony they made some enquiries on the important subject of     transporting cattle, horses, and sheep, over land.       The best informed among the persons from which             they received information, seemed to entertain no   doubt of the practicality of the scheme; and it         is not improbable that the ensuing summer may     witness its successful accomplishment.

SPIRIT DUTIES BILL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 July 1837

SPIRIT DUTIES BILL. We observe that it is proposed to levy a duty of six shillings per gallon on spirits imported into the Colony. We regret the necessity of this measure. If high duties really prevent drunkenness in any degree, which we doubt, they impose so heavy a tax upon labour, as to make the amount of duty at least an object of   serious consideration. The measure involves   also the creation of Custom Houses, Bonded   Warehouses, Custom House Officers and all the varied and expensive machinery necessary to protect the revenue, the fair trader, and the **, against a worse and more demoralizing   call by far—namely, the introduction of smug- gling. We sincerely trust that the effect of this commencement of taxation on the already     extravagant price of labour—for the tax here     must fall directly on the employer—will be duly   considered before the contempla...

SURVEY OF THE COUNTRY SECTIONS. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Glen[?]g, July [?], 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 July 1837

SURVEY OF THE COUNTRY SECTIONS. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Glenelg, July 12th, 1837. Sir,—If you have not done the Surveyor-Ge-   neral and the Colonial Commissioner a service to publishing their letters called forth by mine of the 22nd of May, you have materially benefited the colonists. It is important to know what amount of redress or explanation may be expected from officers paid with our own money, but who are inconsiderate enough to fancy themselves not accountable to the colonists for their proceedings. The Surveyor-General has certainly replied to my letter; but, as you politely hint, and as I openly say, he has shirked the only points of the     least importance it contained; while the Colonial         Commissioner, admitting himself to be implicated by my statements, has not ventured to say one word. If indeed, as I hear, the sending the Rapid with Mr. Kingston to...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, July 6th, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 July 1837

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, July 6th, 1837. I am, Sir, &c., A COLONIST Sir.—As a true well-wisher to this Colony,   and as one who has embarked every thing he     possesses in the world, in an enterprize which must be successful if it gets fair play. I possess the right to scrutinize the public actions of every individual placed in authority over us, and I re- joice to see that you are resolved to give as much   security for their good conduct as publicity through the press can afford. No man who does   his duty honestly need fear such scrutiny, nor hesitate to answer any question, especially ques- tions dictated, not by private pique or malignity   but by a sincere desire to ascertain the truth, and   to give the parties interested an opportunity of explanation. It is in this spirit then that I re- quest the insertion in the next number of the Gazette of t...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. July 24th 1837. Your, &c., A MERCHANT Sir —Can you tell the public why the tenders for cutting the canal at the creek were not adver-   tized for, and the Colonists thus deprived of the benefit of competition, by the work being given privately to Mr. Hack? It is the opinion of many     that the canal will never be worth a sixpence when completed. Who recommended, and how much are the Colonists to pay for it? [We know nothing of the matter. But it is quite clear that no satisfaction can be given, unless unreserved competition for all public works be permitted.] The Article on Schools — A Notice of the London Colonial Club—A Letter, explanatory of Captain Duff's proceedings at Kangaroo Island—and various communications and paragraphs are unavoidably post- poned til our next. The Letter of W. M. D. can- not be inserted, not because of its contents, but because the writer has not thought proper...

THE HARBOUR AT POET ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 July 1837

THE HARBOUR AT PORT ADELAIDE. The great importance as well to the success of the Colony, as to the prosperity of the place selected for the seat of the local govern- ment, of a "Harbour, safe and accessible at all seasons of the year," need not be here ad- verted to at length. We should have been glad to have had it in our power to publish any minute official report     to the local Government, on the capabilities of     Port Adelaide; but if any such has been made,   we have not been favoured with a copy of it. Our belief is, that the various inlets connected   with the Harbour, have not yet been fully or sa-   tisfactorily explored, and that much interesting information, regarding its extent, remains to be afforded. In the mean time we are glad to say that government is determined to lose not time,   and spare no expence, in redering it as safe and commodious as circumstances wi...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. July 10th, 1837. Sir,—Since I forwarded to you my letter of the 6th, I observe from a correspondence published in the last number of the Gazette, that Mr. Fisher has announced his "resolution of never answering anonymous statements." Mr. Fisher is at liberty to do as he pleases, but the Colonial Commissioner is the paid servant of the Colonists, and must answer fair and proper questions involving his public proceedings, put to him through the medium of the newspapers. He has no right to   be exempted from the fate of every public man, in every country where the press is free—where men dare speak their mind, and where the subject   is the warrant for so doing.   I am, Sir, &c., A Colonist. Being desirous in all cases where it is practi- cable to afford every facility for explanation,   we thought it an act of fairness to transmit a proof of the above letters to the Resident Com-...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. Adelaide, July 18th, 1837. Sir,—Under a conviction that any communica-   tion tending to vindicate the character of an individual whose conduct has been, I feel assured, unintentionally misrepresented in your paper, will meet with a ready insertion in the succeeding number, I beg to address to you a few remarks on   an article headed "South Australian Church, and   the Lord Bishop of Australia," which appeared in   your last. In the first place, I wish to say a few words with respect to the Church itself. I am really at a loss to know how the writer of that article has arrived at the conclusion, that its erection "is as   far distant now, on the 8th of July, as it was when   first landed." The advertisement, which was   inserted by those who were likely to be best in-   formed on the subject, states that the only ob- &amp...

H. M. S. Buffalo, at [?] off [?] Plains South Australia March 4th, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 July 1837

H. M. S. Buffalo, at anchor off Glenelg Plains, South Australia, March 4th, 1837. SIR—Having complied with your orders, and separately weighted every circumstance attendant upon getting into the harbour of Adelaide, with H.M.S. Buffalo under your command, I beg leave to furnish some remarks, with the most   faithful report I can conscientiously make, as I     am bound in duty to acquit myself towards you, and to be concerned for the safety of the ship and all on board, I therefore respectfully submit that the wind, weather, and tides cannot be depended   upon, more particularly in the vicinity of what I [?] the most intricate part, approaching the         harbour, but so variable and uncertain have they been found since our arrival, that they have been   remarked to be much less steady than in any other place. The bar, with other banks of sand near it, I found very dangerous, and the entrance not more than the breadth ...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. Mr. BLACK'S letter to Mr. GOUGER in our next. We never heard a syllable of the waggon procession QUIZ describes. If we had we might have noticed it, although not in the spirit which seems to have influenced our correspondent in his description, and there is nothing very ludicrous in a lady laying the foundation stone even of a warehouse — especially in a place where the commencement of every building is a subject of interest. If C.O.S. will entrust us with his name, we shall pub-   lish his letter regarding the horses purchased for the Survey. We do not care a fig for any body's wrath;   but we must invariably possess the name of the individual upon whose authority we publish statements of fact. We have the same remark to make to ANTI-HUMBUG; with   this addition that the knowledge of his name will not in- duce us to print his letter about the attempt to purchase the Lord Hobart from Captain Macintosh. He must first sh...

THE COLONIST AND THE RESIDENT COMMISSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837

THE COLONIST AND THE RESIDENT COMMISSIONER. I am, Sir. &c., A COLONIST. We have this week to exhibit to our readers some very melancholy specimens of folly and imbecility, on the part of the individuals who have been entrusted by the Commissioners in England, with the management of their affairs in this Province. It is so far well, that even the inconceivable absurdities enacted by the Resident Commissioner and his "tail," within the last few days, cannot affect in any possible shape, the interests, or retard for a single hour, the progress of the Colony. Happily, the principles on which South Australia must suc- ceed, do not depend on the conduct of any set of men; and the small antics which the gen-   tlemen alluded to have just been performing, though calculated to make the unconcerned laugh, and the interested grieve, can do harm to no nobody but themselves. A simple detail of the facts will, in the first instance, illustrate the affair; and that it may be u...
