The South Australian Register. ADELAILE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1839. THE GOVERNOR AND THE EXPLORING PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 December 1839

The South Australian Register. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1839. THE GOVERNOR AND THE EXPLORING PARTY. THE Southern Australian of Thursday, favored its readers with the following portentous an-   nouncement:— "It is with the deepest anxiety we announce that on Tuesday despatches were received from his Excellency, intimating that at the time they were sent off his Excellency's party were reduced   to the greatest extremity by want of provisions. They were at the western bend of the Murray. Five of the horses had died from exhaustion in   penetrating the scrub. A young gentleman at-   tached to the Governor's suite, a Mr Bryan, had also been lost in the scrub. It seems that his   Excellency and party were endeavouring to force   their way through the dense forest of scrub on the west of the Murray, and that, after having pro- ceded a considerable way, they were forced, from     utter exhaustion, to give...

ELNEVOLENT SOCIETY.—SAVINGS BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 December 1839

BENEVOLENT SOCIETY.—SAVINGS BANKS. We have much pleasure in inserting the fol-   lowing Proposal for the formation of an Asylum for destitute persons. However liable to objection similar institutions may in many cases be, we are glad to see that, in this instance, the distribution of public charity will be limited to objects truly requiring and deserving it, and will be conducted in a manner not likely to increase the amount of destitution. As a means of mitigating this evil, and afford- ing protection to a very helpless class of per- ons, we cannot but wish the proposed Society every success: and we remark a very com- mendable arrangement which is to be adopted, that of committing the management in a great degree to the industrious classes. They are, unquestionably, the parties whom such a pro- vision must nearly affects, and who ought, therefore, most especially to support it. Not only would they be the most vigilant adminis- trators of the funds, but the claims which...

THIS MEMORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 December 1839

THIS MEMORIAL. The signatures to the Memorial to the Home Government, adopted at the late Public Meet-   ing, is receiving numerous signatures; and there is every probability that, with three or four exceptions, and excluding the names of persons holding office, it will carry with it to England the name of every respectable and intelligent man in the Province. This is as it should be. We have endeavoured to advocate as far as inour humble power, the views developed in   the memorial; but we should ill discharge our duty as impartial journalists, were we to con- ceal from our readers whatever arguments could be fairly used against them. It is in this spirit that we subjit for their consideration the following letter, which has been addressed to us by a gentleman, one of the first and ablest supporters of the Colony, whose opinions, if they gain not assent, are at least entitled to be heard with great deference and respect:—     To t...

LITERATURE. RECONNDE[?]ERING TRAVELS AND ADVENTURES in the Colonies of South Australia, &c. &c, By W.H. LEIGN, Late Surgeon of the South Australian. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 28 December 1839

LITERATURE. RECONNOITERING TRAVELS AND ADVENTURES in the Colonies of South Australia, &c. &c, By W.H. LEIGH, late Surgeon of the South Australian. This is a rambling, half-narrative half jour-   nal of a cruize which Mr Leigh took during the years 1836-7-8. The work posesses little   merit. It is badly written, and the subjects touched on are mostly trifling. The author's chief delight seems to be to talk of fleas and his brandy bottle, to the latter, as appears   from his own account, he had very frequent recourse. His stay in south Australia extended to somewhere about six months, and this in the very infancy of the colony, so that it can- not be thought he should be able to give much information regarding it. The account he gives of his visit to Adelaide is a curiosity. He begins by stating that the situation is very picturesque, and immediately after, goes on to say:—   "I was greatly disappointed at its appeara...

PUBLIC DINNER TO THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 January 1840

PUBLIC DINNER TO THE GOVERNOR. IT will be seen that the Governor has, on his return, promptly answered the invitation of   the colonists, and Friday next the 10th Jan. has been fixed for the public dinner. There can be no doubt that his Excellency will meet the colonists with fatherly feelings on this occasion, and the unanimity of sentiment which, in his absence, dictated this tribute of   respect, will in no way be lessened by the very engrossing and universal anxiety which the late rumours respecting his personal safety had excited throughout the community. We heartily welcome his Excellency again amongst us, and rejoice that so early an opportunity will be afforded the colonists of showing that they join in the congratulation. A general meeting of the stewards takes place in the Court house to-day at five. As one of those minor points on which sometimes the success of more important arrangements depends, we would recommend our fellow colo- &nbsp...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 January 1840

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We trust next week to accomplish the permanent enlargement of the size of the Register which we have   some time contemplated. We shall then be able to do our correspondents justice. Among the many articles we are forced to exclude from this day's paper, is one       in reference to an ill timed and unfair attack upon His Excellency in the last Southern Australian. The allusion to the Camp of Xerxes in that article     is not merely unwarranted- it is unmanly in the ex-     treme. The reports of the Bull and Races are also         among the articles which must lie over.

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 January 1840

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. THE Southern Australian has not extricated himself from his recent blunder regarding the fate of the Governor and his party. According to our notion, a frank confession that he was   entrapped into a hasty and erroneous statement, calculated to do harm abroad and to excite the   must painful feelings here, would have better become him than to attempt to explain or justify what is inexplicable and unjustifiable. We do not venture to scrutinize the motives which induced our contemporary's faux pas;   neither are we inclined to impute to him any less defensible desire than to give the earliest news of an afflicting event. But a journalist owes something to the character of his paper   as well as to those private feelings which are unnecessarily outraged by the publication of calamities altogether fictitious, or which, correct in one or two minor points, are calculated by that vraisemblance to gain credit in th...
