DINNER TO GOVERNOR GAWLER AND THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. (From the South Australian Record, May 9.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 October 1838

DINNER TO GOVERNOR GAWLER AND THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COLONI- ZATION COMMISSIONERS. (From the South Australian Record, May 9.) ON Friday last, May 4th, an entertainment was given by Messrs. James Waddell and Co., on board the Pestonjee Bomanjee, the vessel in which his Excellency Governor Gawler is about to sail for Adelaide, to his Excellency Governor Gawler, Her Majesty's Colonizition Commissioners, and a select party of ladies and gentlemen. The ship was tastefully decorated with flags, and festoons of flowers, and the collation was provided between decks, which had been most elegantly fitted up. In honor of the occasion the David Witton, loading for South Australia, which lay alongside the Pestonjee Bomanjce, was tastefully dressed with colors, and every neighbouring vessel paid a similar compliment. The company, consisting of about 200 ladies and gentlemen, assembled about half-past three o'clock.     Amongst the distinguished guests we observed his Excel...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette Adelaide, October 12, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette Adelaide, October 12, 1838. GENTLEMEN— In the Southern Australian of last week appears an article headed "The Country Slips." Several persons have applied at the Commissioner's office and have invariably been told that they were not open for tender. How it happens that other parties should have tendered for them is a mystery to Your obedient Servant, A Member of the Mechanics' Land Company. N. B. Would it not be better to sell them by Public Auction than by Tender ?

STATE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

STATE OF THE COLONY. THE arrival of a new Governor seems a fitting period for the public journalist to take a con-   cise view of the state and position of the colony, and we shall, therefore, proceed to do so in the same frank and impartial spirit with which all our former accounts of the province have been characterised. Political dissensions, we are happy to think, must now be at an end. The fruitful source of these—a divided authority— no longer exists. Colonel Gawler holds both the important offices of Governor and Resident Commissioner; and what the Governor wills the Commissioner is not very likely to oppose or to dispute. Besides, the powers of these offices an so dis- tinct, and at the same time so perfectly de- fined, that we apprehend Colonel Gawler will have no difficulty whatever in executing the duties of both. At all events, he is free from the embarrassment of prying or vexatious control from an inferior officer, and is account- able only to the Home Gov...

MAP OF ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

MAP OF ENCOUNTER BAY. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN—When we declared the districts in which we intended to select our reserved preli-   minary sections, a map of the vicinity of Victor Harbour, in Encounter Bay, was laid, among others, on the table for our guidance. On going this week to the Surveyor General's office to inspect it previous to making an examination of the country itself in comparison with a copy of it, I was told there was no such map there; but in- stead of it, there was a mere skeleton, an outline only, without any of the features of the country—   the hills, vallies, woods, &c., from which moment it is possible to identify a section on the paper, for the purpose of selection, with the land itself, in the absence of boundury marks and numbers on it. Now, as Messrs. Finniss and Nixon, no   doubt, made their survey and the map of the dis- trict at the public expence I should like to know, &...

UNAPPROPRIATED SLIPS IN THE DISTRICT OF ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

UNAPPROPRIATED SLIPS IN THE DISTRICT OF ADELAIDE. ONE of the latest public acts of the ex-   Resident Commissioner has been even more inexplicable than any of his previous extra-   ordinary proceedings, and exhibits a perversity in blundering which is really melancholy. With all our wish not to press a fallen man too far, we cannot refrain from simply stating the facts—the more especially as the parties im- mediately interested have been subjected to an impudent attack by one of Mr. Fisher's par- tisans for their conduct in the matter. Our readers are aware that the district of Adelaide was, in the original survey, divided into preliminary or 134 -acre sections, and that immediately after the number required was finally chosen the purchasers of 80-acre orders were allowed to select their land out of the remaining or unchosen 134-acre sections— thus leaving unappropriated about 54 acres on each preliminary section. Those portions or slips were regularly mark...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records." —SHAKSPEARE. THE ACADEMY DELLA CRUSCA.—This academy, established at Florence towards the latter end of the sixteenth century, took its name of Crusca (bran) and a mill for its device, to mark the object of its institution—that of separating the wheat from the chaff, or the precious from the vile. The Gerusalemme Liberata of Tasso was one of the first works on which it sat in judgment. It disgraced itself by the condemnation of this immortal work, lending itself to the petty ven- geance of Francesco de Medici, who, irritated at the part taken by the poet in a dispute for precedence between himself and the Duke of Ferrara, at whose court Tasso resided, insisted on this verdict. he usually all-powerful in- fluence of his duchess, Bianca Capello, whom he, apprehending the consequences of his im- prudence, had successfully endeavoured to con- ciliate, was in this instance disregarded; the duke's vanity had been wounded by Torqua...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. I am, &C., GEO. STEVENSON. October 9,1838. GENTLEMEN— As I cannot flatter myself that my private affairs possess any public interest, and, as the assertion of the Cashier of the Bank of South Australia that "bills on England drawn by me have long ago been returned dishonored," is posi- tively and utterly untrue, I need not trouble myself or your readers about his revelations of the confidential transactions of the Bank with which he is connected and in which I am concerned— so long at least as these are neither uncommon, illegal, nor dishonorable. The threat of the publication of my private letters it will be time enough to notice when executed. I have not yet written a syllable that I would blot or hesitate under the same circumstances to repeat. The consequences of such publication therefore are likely to be serious only to the party who, to to gratify personal spite or party malignity, dares be guilty of so foul and so unpre...

THE HARBOUR OF PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

THE HARBOUR OF PORT ADELAIDE. It seems to be generally conceded that a capital blunder has been committed in fixing the landing place of Port Adelaide in its present position, and that the necessity for its removal               to a more eligible part of the Inlet is becoming daily more urgent. However much we may regret the error of judgment of the late Surveyor-general on this point, and lament that so heavy an expenditure should have taken place in attempts to improve what in fact was not improveable, it is not now our intention to do more than to show that the error may to a certain extent be retrieved, and that the public interest requires it to be retrieved with the least possible delay. The first objection to the present Port is the distance from the landing place at which all vessels but those of the smallest tonnage are obliged to lie. The largest ships cannot approach the wharfs at ...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. OBSERVER. GENTLEMEN— Notwithstanding the government       order prohibiting the disfiguring of the orna-   mental and useful trees in the park, the practice of lopping off their branches still continues. As two very flagrant instances of contempt of the constituted authorities came under my notice last week I cannot forbear from pointing them out, that the government, if really in earnest, may punish the offenders. On Friday last I saw a large wide-spreading tree actually felled near the third brick kiln you arrive at after crossing the bridge and walking up the river on the north side. The other instance is that of the inhabitant of a little log hut near the eastern angle of Hindmarsh Town, who has cut a deep notch in the windward side of a large tree, overhanging the river, and is now very busy burning his way through on the leeward side. But as these are probably only one- tenth of...

MR. THOMAS COTTER AND THE BOARD OF ENQUIRY INTO THE STATE OF THE INFIRMARY. IN the Gazette No. 29, the following paragraph was inserted:— I remain, sir, Your obedient servant, THOMAS YOUNG COTTER, Colonial Surgeon. Adelaide, October 1,1838. THE INFIRMARY.- The state of neglect in which this building is suffered to remain is a disgrace to humanity. A man of common feeling would be ashamed to see his dog-kennel in the filth in which human beings, some of them in the last stage of disease, are allowed to remain. We trust the government, or, if it do not or cannot, the charitable portion of the community will take some steps to place this institution on a footing calculated to ensure its usefulness and some slight degree of attention to the poor patients lingering within its walls. Several exceedingly gross instances of neglect on the part of the Colonial Surgeon have been stated to us on good authority. In one case that that officer, after having tapped a patient for the dropsy, did no...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1838. ARRIVAL OF GOVERNOR GAWLER [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 October 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1838. ARRIVAL OF GOVERNOR GAWLER THE Pestonjee Bomanjee, with Governor Gawler, his family, and about 200 emigrants on board, arrived in Glenelg Roads yesterday morning, all well, after a pleasant passage of about four months. The Pestonjee Bomanjee touched at Teneriffe and Rio. His Excellency landed at Glenelg early in the afternoon, and received the congratulations of a large body of the colonists, who were introduced by G. M. Stephen, Esq., the Acting Governor. On Wed- nesday, we observe by the Government Orders, Colonel Gawler will formally assume the ad- ministration of the government and hold a levee at Government House. Reports of all sorts of changes are of course rife. From the private letters we have received and seen it does not appear that there is to be any modification of the powers of the Go- vernor or any alteration in the numbers of the Council. Messrs. Morphett and Robert Tod have been appointed auditors, (in alternate ye...

PUBLIC MEETING TO ADDRESS THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 October 1838

PUBLIC MEETING TO ADDRESS THE GOVERNOR. IN consequence of a requisition to the Sheriff, signed by most of our leading citizens, a public meeting was held at the Court-house on Monday, October 15, to address the Governor on his arrival and assumption of the Govern- ment of South Australia. The meeting was numerously and respectably attended. Among the company we saw his Honor the Judge, the Resident Magistrate, the Sheriff, Messrs. Bernard, Stevenson, E. Stephens, Newenham, Watts, McTavish; Drs. Everard, Wright, Wyatt, and Bright; Messrs. A. H. Davis, Russell, Beck, Alston, Macdougall, Nation, Barnard, and Captains Walker, Freeman, and others. Robert Bernard, Esq., Advocate-general, was   called to the chair. Mr. A. H.

POWERS OF THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 October 1838

POWERS OF THE GOVERNOR. THE commencement of a new era has usually been considered a fitting season for a retrospect of its predecessor; and the public journalist has deemed it to be his privilege to speculate on the consequences which bygone events were   likely to produce on those still in the womb of time, and to edify the world with " philo- sophical reflections"—all very fine and very appropriate of course—on matters which had then become history. In the present position   of South Australia, this course is a tempting   one ; but we shall not follow it, preferring to abandon advantages which are only to be obtained by recalling unnecessarily the heart- burnings of the past, and encreasing, without object, that personal irritation which, for the interests of all, should now ceace. We are not so sanguine as to hope that political dif- ferences will not arise, or that undeviating unanimity is to be expected here more than elsewhere; but we do ...

GEORGE MILNER STEPHEN, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 October 1838

GEORGE MILNER STEPHEN, ESQ. We are glad to observe that our late Acting Go- vernor, G.M. Stephen, Esq., is about to re- ceive a public testimony of the value of his services. An address has been most respect- ably and numerously signed, and is to be pre- sented to him on Tuesday next. We do not think it possible for the most inveterate op- ponent of the system of government adopted in South Australia to deny to Mr. Stephen the praise of having borne his honors meekly, or of having pleased, by his gentlemanly demeanor, all those wiih whom he has had intercourse.   Our own favorable opinion of his acts as Go-   vernor has been too distinctly expressed to need repetition here, and we have the satis- faction to believe that they have mot the ap- proval of the leading colonists.   In addition to the gratification which late events Ihave afforded Mr. Stephen's friends, we     observe by the last Hobart Town papers that he ha...
