STATE OF RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 June 1838

STATE OF RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION ' IN THE COLONY. AMID the busy scenes of commerce, the excite- ment of political strife, and the constant and varying engagements of every day business, how careful ought we to be that higher, and nobler, and better things are not forgotten or neglected. It should be impressed upon us that the first founders of our Province, and those that had the largest stake in its soil, felt a deep anxiety, not only that our colony should be based upon broad and enlightened principles - not only that these beautiful hills and valleys should be peopled with the industrious and free sons of Britain - not only that where the dark and ignorant savage bad roamed for ages untutored and unknown, the enterprise and activity of man should introduce and disseminate the arts of civilization and refinement-but above all, that where we went our religion should go with us - where we civilize we should attempt to chris- tianize also, and that amidst our early struggles for the fo...

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. Quid verum atgue dicen» curó, et rogo, et omni s in hcé nan.-HÖR. EP., lib; 1, el». 1, T ll. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY MORNING,JULY 7,1838. THE vital importance of the subject to the welfare of the Colony, and the all-absorbing interest it has excited during the last week* must be our apology for devoting so much of our present number to the changes in the Survey Department. By the correspondence printed in another part of our paper, it will be seen that instructions have been sent out directing an immediate running Survey of 150 square miles, unless the Prelimi nary Surveys are actually completed ; and with these directions comes out also an order to Colonel LIGHT to resign his authority into the hands of Mr, KINGSTON, unless he will engage to complete the said snrvey, according to a plan laid down in the Despatches, within two months. Colonel LIGHT has declined to enter into the required engagement, aud the Colonial Com missioner has had to communicate to Mr. KIN...

LITEARRY SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 July 1838

LITERARY SOCIETY. IT will be in the remembrance of those who were early connected with the Colony in England, that a Literary Society was formed there by the intending Emigrants, a Library commenced, and plans laid for preserving amongst the settlers in the Colony, the advantages and improvement derivable from occasional meetings for the dis- cussion of literary subjects, and the promotion     of scientific pursuits. The many calls upon the time and attention of those who led the way as Emigrants, joined to the unfortunate political differences hitherto existing, have affected and retared this as well as other means of preserving here as far as possible the more refined charac- teristics of society at home. Now, however, when we may confidently hope that the stand taken by the Commissioners and those interested in the Colony in England, will result in an effectual remedy of some of the evils we have   had to deplore ; and when the comforts and ...

OFFICIAL CENSURE UPON THE POSTMASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 7 July 1838

OFFICIAL CENSURE UPON THE POSTMASTER. WE expected that some one would have had wisdom enough to advise His Excellency to say as little about this subject as possible. He has, however, directed a lengthy explanatory censure upon Mr.GILBERT to be officially printed, which, if we were malicious, we would reprint, that it might obtain public circulation also. Who the talented author is we know not. It hears the signature of the Colonial Secretary ; but as the usual rules of grammar are adhered to, and the orthography is correct, it cannot be the production of that Hon. Gentleman. The length of it would lead us to surmise that the Editor of the Gazette had written it, that it might fill his paper; but it has not the customary abuse, and does not con tain above a dozen false statements. We have therefore arrived at the conclusion that the Advo cate General, the amiens curia' on the celebrated occasion, is the never-to-be-sufficiently enough admired author. We take the liberty of saying on...
