WOODEN HOUSES ?— CAUTION TO EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 21 July 1838

WOODEN HOUSES — CAUTION TO EMIGRANTS. WE observe in the fourth number of the South Australian Record woodcuts representing views of Adelaide Church, the South Australian Bank, the residence of Osmond Gilles, Esq, Colonial Treasurer, the residence of Mr. Fisher, the Commissioner, and other buildings sent out in frame, and which are described as "not to be surpassed for utility, elegance, and   convenience." The buildings represented in these cuts as erected in Adelaide, are no where to be seen. The only part of the wooden church that exists or that corresponds with the plan is a strange sort of extinguisher, dignified, we believe, as the steeple. The other portions did not fit, or were not supplied, or were splintered or rotten. It was found impossible, in short, to put the rubbish sent out together, and a stone building has been erected by subscription. The loss by the wooden fabric is total. What has become of the South Australian Bank we know not. It may be buried in ...

MR. EYRE'S JOURNEY OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALES TO ADELAIDE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA). [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 21 July 1838

MR. EYRE'S JOURNEY OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALES TO ADELAIDE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA). WE have been kindly favored by Mr. EYRE, the result of whose successful enterprise was briefly noticed in our last, with a detailed ac-   count of his journey overland from New South Wales to South Australia. Mr. EYRE'S com- munication, not only most valuable and inter- esting in itself, acquires additional importance by the full confirmation it affords to Mr. HAW- DON'S report of the practicability of the route by the Murray, as well as of the fact that the natives in the interior are not so hostile or unfriendly as they were described by Major Mitchell, but that on the contrary little danger is to be apprehended from them. Our warmest thanks, indeed, are due to Mr. EYRE for the manner in which he conciliated these poor people by the interchange of presents. Those who may now follow in his path will do well to remember that their own safety de- pends altogether on the forbearance of the nat...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN—The Government lately im-   posed certain duties on spirits, &c., which was highly necessary; but there is another source from which the exchequer of the colony may be further increased, to which I beg through your journal to call the attention of the executive. In looking over the papers of the colony the attention of the reader is attracted by the number of auctions to take place, to the great prejudice of the fair trader. To put the store- keeper upon a par with the auctioneer I would suggest that a duty of ten per cent, be imposed on all goods, and five percent, on landed pro- perty, sold by auction; and that the auctioneers pay £90 a year for their licence, besides finding security for the payment of duties within twenty-one days after the sale; the amount of the security not to be less than £200. I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, Fair-Play. P.S. The fund arising from such duties might he appro...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette . A MARTINITE. GENTLEMEN — Permit me through the medium of your journal to call the attention of the authorities to the state of the sand-hill at the Port, rendered now of great importance to the carriers of goods by the increased amount of shipping lately arrived. Those whose business takes them to the Port must have witnessed the treatment of the poor bullocks in bringing a load over the sand —what swearing, tearing, and lashing there is! Now   to obviate this as much as possible, and enable the drays to bring up a heavier load, I would suggest that a road should be excavated, and the sand that is taken from the top of the hill be laid down on the line of road nearest the town, to make the descent as gradual as possible, and the whole to be laid with pines, which can be cut in the neighbourhood, thereby making a tramway as far as the road is soft, the cost of which could be paid by a toll of one shilling on each cart or d...

THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH AND MR. DAVID McLAREN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH AND MR. DAVID McLAREN. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, A CHURCHMAN. IT is with extreme regret we perceive that Mr. McLaren has been so ill-advised as to publish a letter, written in the true sectarian spirit, to Mr. C. Mann, the editor of Mr. Fisher's newspaper, on the subject of the Church es- tablishment of the province, calculated not merely to raise unnecessary discussion, but to render Mr. McLaren's reputation for discretion or common sense much more questionable than ever. The letter to which we allude is as follows:— Sir—l read with much pleasure the article entitled "State of religious instruction in the Colony;" and while I dare not pronounce any truth unimportant which infinite wisdom has re vealed, nor regard any appointment trivial which is sanctioned by divine authority, most sincerely do I wish every man, every denomi- nation, that seeks to promote the glory of God and the good of man by spiritual means, " God speed." Will you permit...

JUGGLING WITH THE PUBLIC MONIES ?—MESSRS. FISHER, MACLAREN, AND STEPHENS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

JUGGLING WITH THE PUBLIC MONIES —MESSRS. FISHER, MACLAREN, AND STEPHENS. THE correspondence which we published in our number of the 7th instant between Mr. DAVID McLAREN, manager of the Bank of South Australia, Mr. GILLES, the Colonial Treasurer, and Mr. Fisher, the Resident Commissioner, is doubtless fresh in the me- mory of our readers. Prevented at the time by the press of more evanescent matter from inserting the remarks that correspondence called forth, we now return to the subject with the intention of fully exposing the disreputable   transactions to which it relates. In the first letter addressed by Mr. McLaren (July 2) to Mr. Gilles, that gentlemen says:   " You are aware, I presume, that in No. 21 of the South Australian Gazette there appeared a copy of the account which, as Manager of the South Australian Company, I handed to the Hon. the Colonial Commissioner for freightage, &c., of the brig the Lord Hobart. I beg to know if you were acc...

MR. FISHER'S ADDRESS TO THE COLONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

MR. FISHER'S ADDRESS TO THE COLONISTS. MR. Commissioner FISHER, afraid it would seem that his skilful mismanagement of the Survey might attract more observation than agreeable, and a little galled, perhaps, by the home truths spoken by Mr. Stephen in the address pronounced by that gentleman on assuming his present office, has screwed his courage to the sticking place. He has ven- tured to indite and—more daring still—to print (at the Commissioners' expence of course) an address of his own to the colonists of South Australia, wherein, under the pretence of de- fending the conduct of his principals, he amiably insinuates a charge of "wilful mis-   representation" against his superior officer, the Acting Governor of the province. But we cannot refuse the wide circulation of our columns to any production of Mr. Fisher's— the more especially when, like the present, it most certainly is not written for him by a friend that he might obtain the credit of it. Here, therefore, it...

STOCK EXCHANGE INTELLIGENCE EXTRAORDINARY. CITY, BUBBLE COURT, JULY 28. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

STOCK EXCHANGE INTELLIGENCE EXTRAORDINARY. CITY, BUBBLE COURT, JULY 28. ROLAND, Stockbroker. SINCE our last Stock Fish of all descriptions has declined considerably. Pork is flat, and Grindstones are looking up. It is said the grand depot has passed into other hands. Bills to a large amount have been with the notary; and others were presented at the Treasury a few days ago, and protested for not drawing. There was a report in the morning that two and two made four; but on the rumour being traced to the Bank it was universally discre- dited. Discount of good bills is reduced to 15 per cent., and the hire of saddles to 2s. 6d. each per diem. The running survey is standing still. We hear from the Port that the canal is dry at high water; and that the bridge over the Torrens is to be finished in November, by which time it is expected the rains will be over.

"THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

"THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF." IT has been part of the chatter of the Fisher tribe to call every exposure of their dark doings "a violation of official confidence ;" even poor Mr. McLaren is so far tainted with the cant of the gang as to charge Mr. Gilles with such a violation because, forsooth, " that disreputable newspaper," the Gazette, chose to publish one of his own accounts, as a merchant, against the public. Suppose Mr. McLaren's milk and butter story should get into print, he might as well call that a " betrayal of official confidence." Now these immaculate gentlemen themselves have odd enough ideas of this con- fidence. The Resident Commissioner borrows from Government House the " Secretary of State's book of instructions to Governors. He forgets to return it, but remembers to lend it to his friend the ex-Emigration Agent for the praiseworthy purpose of attacking the head of the Colonial Government. Mr. Brown accor- dingly " directs the attention of his acting Excellency to the ...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial found records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."—SHAKSPEARE. CHARACTERS OF THEOPHRASTUS.— Theo- phrastus, the friend of Plato and Aristotle, was a native of Lesbos and died in the 107th year of his age, B. c. 288. His "Characters," drawn up- wards of two thousand years ago, are as fresh and applicable now as on the day they were composed. They are the outlines of the human form in attitudes which will never vary so long as humanity shall endure; they may be filled up and shaded from the experience of every man, but the drapery and the fashion of it are all that will have to be added. La Bruyere did this, and clothed the Greeks of Theophrastus in the garb of French abbes, courtiers—the men great and small of the time of Louis XIV. A La Bruye're might find employment for himself in every age; but, unfortunately for those to be warned or in- structed, man will ever see the face of another in the glass that is held to his own; and an older than the French philosopher, though n...

TO G. S. KINGSTON, ESQ., SURVEYOR GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

TO G. S. KINGSTON, ESQ., SURVEYOR GENERAL. Sir—To give you that public opportunity of justification which every man accused as you have been, and conscious as you may be of innocence, naturally desires, I have a few questions to submit to you which I trust you will answer. I adopt the colonial formula for the sake of brevity:— 1. Is it true that you were sent to England as joint messenger of Mr. Fisher and Colonel Light; to repeat verbally and to confirm, if need was, the stories of the former regarding Governor Hindmarsh and others, his friends and sup- porters : and on the part of Colonel Light to re- present to the Commissioners the inefficiency of the survey department and the necessity of its im- mediate reinforcement ? 2. Is it true that in the first instance you did fulfil your instructions, and subsequently represent to Mr. Rowland Hill and Colonel Torrens that the survey force, if property directed, was ample for all necessary purposes; and that the delay was chiefly owing ...

THE COTTAGER'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 28 July 1838

THE COTTAGER'S GARDEN. As every laboring man, if prudent, can com- mand from a quarter to half an acre of land, we beg to reprint for his benefit an article from the Library of Useful Knowledge on Cottage Gardening, altering the time of sowing to suit this climate. "Many, however well inclined to have a garden, do not know the best mode of setting about cropping and managing it, and are ignorant of the best sort of seeds to sow and the time and mode of sowing. We have given a plan which contains about a quarter of an acre; and those who have gardens of half this size will be able to manage them by this plan, only using half the space for each crop, or leaving out some crops that are less profitable for those of potatoes and cabbages, which are the most productive and useful. Suppose, therefore, a piece of ground fifty-one yards long by twenty-four wide, which is about a quarter of an acre, and is represented by the plan, lay out a border all round four feet wide, Nos. 9, 10, and 11 ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The letter of Amicus Verns we should have inserted at once had not our rule never to publish statements of fact on anonymous authority been inflexible. It is impossible for authority been inflexible. It is impossible for our correspondent to think worse than we do of Mr. Fisher's conduct in reference to the Survey; but we cannot reasonably be expected   to depart from our rule, when the nature of the statement called for greater than ordinary circumspection.
