NEWS FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

NEWS FROM ENGLAND. WE have private letters up to the 4th April, and from them we gather that South Australia is creating much more interest than ever, and sanguine hopes seem to be entertained that after the then ensuing six months a heavy tide of emigration will set in for our shores. We hear of many capitalists who propose to embark in the course of the summer; steam-boat and rail-road companies are talked of, and Colonel Torrens has announced his intention to establish a Colonial Investment Bank. Mr. Fisher is recalled; and the suspension of Messrs. Gouger and Brown confirmed. Indeed, it was asserted that Mr. Gouger's dismissal from the office of Colonial Secretary was resolved   upon before the news of the disgraceful street fight in which he and Mr. Mann were the leading parties, reached England. The latest dates from the colony were to the 7th November. A number of vessels were laid on for South Australia. The Surrey was to sail in all April. The political news is...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. AUGUST 4. 1838. THE NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. AUGUST 4, 1838. THE NEW GOVERNOR. COLONEL GAWLER has been selected for the office of Governor and Commander-in-Chief, with the approbation, we hear, of all parties at home. He is said to be a gentleman of great intelligence and firmness, and one who, in the quaint phrase, will "stand no nonsense."   His Excellency was to sail about the middle of May, and his arrival may be expected early in September.

MR. MANN ?— ATHENS ?— AND THE NEWLY DISCOVERED COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

MR. MANN — ATHENS — AND THE NEWLY DISCOVERED COUNCIL. SINCE the Society for the Diffusion of Useful and Entertaining Knowledge commenced its labors, it has been remarked that the "peoples" acquaintance with Ancient Greece has been considerably extended; and that nu merous grown-up persons who had not in their youth the means or opportunity of ob- taining the advantages of a classical education are enabled from the historical compendium of   that country, published by the society, to acquire some general information of the nature and character of the early republics; and even, in some instances, to quote names and to converse with a degree of plausibility on events which, to those still unscathed by birch, might appear " Wond'rous deep and wise and witty!" It indicates, however, melancholy imbecility of intellect in a person who has only drank at the Helicon of Ludgate Hill to set up for an admirer of ancient times, and to babble of the glory of Athens or the renown of G...

THE RIVAL GOVERNORS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

THE RIVAL GOVERNORS. SINCE the departure of Governor HINDMARSH, Messrs. MANN and FISHER each claim to be the Acting Governor of the Province, and dis-   pute the right of Mr. STEPHEN to the position he has, according to these learned pundits, illegally assumed. On the one hand, Mr. Mann denies that he has ever resigned his office of Advocate- general; and thatas senior member of the   second or the newly discovered council, he has succeeded to the colonial throne, where he fancies himself now sitting, we presume, like the maniac in Hogarth's print, with his sceptre and paper crown, receiving and returning the homagec of his faithful subjects. Persons   of Mr. Mann's cast of mind are proverbially subject to loss of memory; and the poor gen-   tleman has evidently forgotten that he had written the following words:- 'I solemnly       tender to your Excellency my resignation of   the ...

PUBLIC MEETING ?— POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

PUBLIC MEETING — POLICE FORCE. A MEETING of the colonists was held at the Court house on Monday, at one o'clock, for the purpose of taking into consideration the present unpro-   tected state of the colony with regard to the   police force ; Mr. J. B. Hack was called to the chair and said, they could not consider their lives and property safe without an efficient police. In his   opinion it out to be increased ; but whether it ought to be paid by the colonists or the government,         or in what manner it was to be supported,     was the subject on which they were met to delibe- rate. The want of funds appeared to him to be the main obstacle, but he should be happy to hear the   suggestions of any gentleman. He then asked if   there were any officer of the government present       to state whether or n...

INTERIOR OF AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 August 1838

INTERIOR OF AUSTRALIA THE all but total ignorance that has for such a length of time existed regarding the vast continent of Australia is certainly neither very creditable to the sovereign power to which it belongs nor to the discrimination of those learned gentlemen and scientific bodies at whose recommendation various expeditions of dis covery have, during the last ten or fifteen years, been fitted out at great expence, and the most successful results of which have been attended with but trifling comparative advantage to the public. It has always seemed to us unac- countable that the very portion of the world evidently destined by its geographical position to become at once the point of concentration and the key of the immense traffic of the Eastern Archipelago, and to be also the stepping-stone from which British enterprise was eventually to secure for itself the existing, and to open up fresh sources of profitable, commerce in the Japan and Chinese seas, should have been so long...

THE POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 August 1838

THE POLICE FORCE. THE three public meetings on this subject which took place during last week resulted in talk only. The purpose for which these meetings were convened was altogether lost sight of—far less anxiety being displayed to consider and adopt means for strengthening and rendering more efficient the police force than to give vent to splenetic attacks upon public officers, and to insinuate unworthy motives against the Acting Governor for the promptitude and liberality with which he pro- vided for the safety of the lives and properties of the colonists. Messrs Fisher, McLaren, Stephens, Brown, and the other patriots gave, of course, full vent to their political animo- sities; they spoke loud and long and big, and   —carefully kept their hands as far as possible from their pockets. They talked of every thing but a subscription — which of course they deemed a low, mean, pettifogging, unpa- triotic way of raising money; and left the   business, after thr...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INVESTMENT COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 August 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INVESTMENT COMPANY. BY the Roxburghe we were favored with a copy of the prospectus of the South Australian Investment Company, which we have great pleasure in transferring to our columns. The capital of the Company is £600,000, in shares of £50, with power to increase. We think it impossible for any South Australian to read the prospectus to doubt its complete success, more especially in the loan investment and land purchasing departments. Money to any amount could be safely and profitably invested at from eight to ten per cent., while the beneficial effect to the colonists in reducing the extortionate interest charged by the South Australian Company's Manager for loans upon the security of land can scarcely be over-rated. The power which a command of capital would give in obtaining special surveys would ensure an immense profit. The views entertained of the localities where these surveys should in the first place be chosen satisfy us, on the one hand, that our opin...

MR. FISHER AND THE COMMISSIONERS' MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 August 1838

MR. FISHER AND THE COMMISSIONERS' MONEY. WE have been endeavouring for the last   eighteen months, and with considerable dili-   gence our readers will admit, to extract from Mr. FISHER some information regarding his disposal of the public money. Our hammering, however, has been ineffectual — Mr. Fisher, probably feeling that the exposure, come when   it may, will arrive too soon; and that there- fore the longer he can shuffle off the evil hour the better. Under such circumstances and considering that the sheep, horses, bullocks, cows, pork. peas, flour, pickles, ponies, pines, timber, and we know not what besides of pub- lic property Mr. Fisher has had the handling remain totally unaccounted for, we think that functionary has injudiciously departed from the course of silence he has hitherto maintained by venturing upon so indiscreet a question as that which, upon the authority of Mr Mann, he put to Mr. Strangways, the late Colonial Secretary:—...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."?— SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 August 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."— SHAKSPEARE. GASCONS.- "Vivent les Gascons," says a French author; "presence of mind, boldness if necessary pushed to effrontery, cleverness in finding ex- pedients to extricate themselves from a delicate position: such are their qualities." Change the name of Gascon for Irish, and in these words you have the substance of all that characterises the latter—or all that Edgeworth has admitted, and we have allowed. The Gascons are the Irish of the French, who delight to repeat their bulls and rhodomontode, and their shoulders had need be quite as broad as Pat's to bear the loud that their mischief-loving countrymen are willing to lay upon them. It it, however, rather hyperbole than blunder in which they excel; and the few fpllowing specimens will show that their talent in that line is by no means despicable or inferior to that of the legitimate Hibernian :— A Gascon and a Parisian having quarrelled were reconciled immediately.

THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 August 1838

THE SURVEY. THE subject above all others of vital im-   portance to the welfare of the colony is the survey. At the moment we write it is un-   fortunately at a dead stand. The deplorable consequences of Mr. Fisher's mismanagement, under whatever aspect viewed, it is impossible to calculate. The preliminary purchasers may and probably will resort to law for redress and compensation; but ruin to them and loss to the Commissioners are not all the evils the colony has to endure. We see capitalists— men of intelligence and education, arriving with their families on our shores with the in- tention of purchasing land and becoming settlers—actually driven from among us be- cause the districts they consider most eligible   (Encounter Bay,the neighbourhood of the Lake and on the Murray), remain unsurveyed, and of course unprocurable. What is worse than all there appears neither anxiety nor alacrity in the proper quarter to remedy this unhappy state of t...

VICTOR HARBOUR ?— ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 August 1838

VICTOR HARBOUR — ENCOUNTER BAY. I have the honour to be sir, Your Excellency's obedient humble servent, JOHN HART. His Excellency Governor Hindmarsh. THE Goshawk is about to proceed to En- counter Bay to take in oil and whalebone—the produce of this year's fishing—and from thence direct to England. She will, of course, load in Victor Harbour, the only safe port in the Bay, and not at the dangerous and exposed cove where the Company have their station,   and where the South Australian and Solway   were totally wrecked and £5000 lost, as Captain Pearson remarked in consequence of an effort of the Company's Manager to save £150! No insurance could be fairly or     honestly effected on any vessel not bound to take in her cargo in Victor Harbour. Re- garding this anchorage, and in furthur confir-   mation of its security, we have great pleasure in publishing the following letter from Captain Hart of the Hope, addressed to o...
