NEW LANDING PLACE AT PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

NEW LAXDfKG PLACE AT PORT ADELAIDE. I WE feel no doubt that the intentions of the Commissioner of Public Lands, with reference to the plan proposed in the extraordinary Gazette of the 6th December instant, have originated in a sincere desire to promote the welfare of the Province; and although we deem the course actually adopted in many respects hasty and unadvised, we admit with much pleasure that the Governor has latterly shewn that he ts ready to avail himself of information from all parties. We are equally ready to admit that the existence of deep water near the spot where Colonel GAWLER COW proposes to fix the site of the new town of Port Adelaide gives a prima Jorie color j to the representations which have been, industri ously spread of the benefits likely to accrue from the proposed change. With these admissions, however, our concessions must terminate. We hold that the very rumour of a change, affecting as it does the value of property of every kind, and tending to paralize...

THE STRINGY BARK FOREST [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

THE STRINGY BARK FOREST OWE of the most impolitic acts of his Ex cellency the Governor, and which we deem quite uncalled for,-has been the survey for the purpose of sale of a portion of the barren hills where the stringy bark is obtained, and thereby affording the means of entire monopoly of an article of the most extensive use in the town. These hills are quite useless except for their, timber, of which there is an immense quantity in the whole of the hills to the north and noitli east; and hitherto, any one has been at liberty I to fell it and sell it in town-but now it has been suggested to the Governor, to survey these forests and offer them for sale. This measure is impolitic, because it will either double the price of this useful article, or else, as is expected, the men employed in the work will not continue at it any longer-and the consequence will be, that the rapid improve ments in the town and country, in the way of fencing and hut building, will be entirely stopped, exce...

NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

m-----q= ] NATURAL HfSTORY SOCIETY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA- ' -A highly respectable meering was held at the Court House on the 13th inst, to form this Society (see oar advertising columns). We feel much in terested in the success of this attempt to introduce a taste for Natural History into our rising Colony, and are gratified to find that its projectors have met with that co-operation and support which au object so important j ustly demands. CUP OF THE SEASON.-The result of our en quiries upon this subject is, that the clip this year does not quite average 2£ lbs. per fleece. It is true there are a few docks which have yielded nearly, if not quite, 3 lbs. per fleece ; but there are some which have not given more than 2 lbs. The major part, however, have averaged 2| lbs. We consider this to be attributable to the broken character of the fleece in almost all the flocks, in consequence of the sheep not having recovered from the effects of the voyage ; and we suggest that the earliest impor...

THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

TBE POST OFFICE. WE regret to find that our old friend Mr. Gil bert, has resigned the office of Postmaster. We have not been informed of the circumstances which induced Mr. Gilbert to tender his resig nation, but we suspect that it was that feeling which we know be possesses in an eminent   degree, that high sense of honor which forms the peculiar feture in his character, so much esteemed. He has long been neglected and ill used, and whilst the loaves and fishes have been freely distributed around, to persons far less deser ving, he has been constantly overlooked though he has never allowed himself to murmur or com plain. He has worked long for the colony, he has lost much by the colony, he has done his duty in every situation which he has occupied, and to be shuffled aside and kept down at a con temptible salary of £30 a year, and sub ject, to boot, to the repeated insults of some of the government officials; no wonder he is at last disgusted and flings up all his offi...

To Rowland Hill, Esquire. Adelaide, Dec. 19. 1838. DEAR HILL,-The parting injunction you gave me last year, that I should write to you I have not forgotten, but you know I could scarcely give an ac count of the colony before I had seen it, and more especially before I had examined into the working of those admirable theories that you used so often to explain to me at the "Coalhole." Besides Hill, to tell you the truth I don't much like to write, now I have seen that " Record" paper you get up in London, for it seems they only put in articles that praise the Commissioners and those who conduct the affairs of the colony at home, and as I don't like to appear in print myself, I am afraid, (as I must praise them too you will print this in the " Record." Now I do hope you wont because I shall never like to write freely again, and the Treasurer here will get to know that I have told you all that he blabs out. About the economy measures you talked to me, I wish you joy my dear fellow, they...

THE NEW LANDING PLACE AT PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 29 December 1838

THE NEW LANDING P^ACE At PoRT ADELAIDE. IN our last number we described the boundaries of the creek or river constituting Port Adelaide, and we pointed out the different channels which it forms, and that with a sufficient degree of accuracy to give our readers a foir general idea of the for midable local difficulties which beset the scheme proposed by the Commissioner of Public Lands. One consequence of these local obstacles, that of increased expence, is so obvious, that it meets us on the very threshold of the subject. The Commissioner himself estimates the expence at £16.0.00, and as we never knew a general esti mate that was not doubled when it assumed a busi ness-like form, we may fairly set down the actual government estimate at something like £25,000 : witness the contract for the government house, which has suddenly augmented from a modest estimated expence of £5000, into a bulky tender of £12,000. We have amused ourselves by an attempt at an estimate of one portion only of ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 29 December 1838

ENGLISH EXTRACTS.       — The new crop of wheat it represented, from   nearly every quarter, to be deficient, more or less ;   and in some districts of Wales and Scotland it is so   very backward that it probably will not be reaped at   all. To meet the expected deficiency in what way   are we prepared ? Why, sir, the crop of last year   is now so nearly exhausted that, before fourteen days   are over, there will be duty paid to many ports of   the western district of the country from sheer neces-   sity to keep the mills going ; and, in all probability,   before the new crop is harvested in the south part of   the kingdom all the bonded corn in the United King-   dom will be consumed. We have not secured more   than 400,000 quarters of wheat on the Continent, which, with our bo...
