PUBLIC ACTION OF LAWS [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
PUBLICATION OF LAWS We are glad to understand that His Excel- lency the Governor has resolved to adopt a course with regard to all laws to be brought before the Council, which so far as it goes, cannot but prove satisfactory to the Colonists, as showing his desire not to exercise the power he possesses but in unison with their opinions and interests. It is intended, we believe, that in future, when any legislative measure is laid before the Council, that public notice shall be given thereof, and that the proposed enactments shall be open to examination, at the Colonial Secretary's Office for a certain time previous to their being taken into consideration by the Council. It would, however, be much more judicious to follow the practice of the Cape of Good Hope, and publish the intended law in the official Gazette, so that every Colonist might be enabled to have it in his possession, without being obliged to read it in a public office. We do not consider the fact, that the laws to be...
To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette Colonial Register. Adelaide, 9th August, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. Adelaide, 9th August, 1837. I am, Sir, &c., A Sufferer. Mr. EDITOR,—I should feel glad if you would inform a sincere well-wisher of the Colony, through the medium of your Colonial Register, if it is the province of His Excellency the Governor, or the Colonial Commissioner, to appoint officers to take charge of goods as they are landed from &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the Ships at Port Adelaide, to see them put under &nbsp; cover, or at any rate placed upon the sand hill. &nbsp; Under the present system they are landed in the &nbsp; swamp, and there left at the mercy of the elements. If the parties to whom they belong are not on the &nbsp; spot at the moment they are landed they may find some portion of their goods amongst the ...
THE RESIDENT COMMISSIONER'S INSTRUCTIONS. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
THE RESIDENT COMMISSIONER'S INSTRUCTIONS. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Sir,—In the leading article of your number of the 8th July, I think you have so fully and satisfactorily defined the powers and duties of the Resident Com- missioner, that, to unprejudiced minds, nothing more &nbsp; need be said. In corroboration of your argu- ments, I refer those who are not convinced, to the opinion of one whose work on South Australia &nbsp; stamps him as a man of ability, judgement, and foresight. I mean Colonel Napier, the first cho- sen Governor of the projectors of this Colony. &nbsp; Alluding to the Commissioners, he says "The act &nbsp; of Parliament confines their avocations to 'certain &nbsp; parts of the act,' namely, first, to arranging the &nbsp; &nbsp; sales, and letting of land; secondly to the appoint- &nbsp; ment of officers to execute such duties necessary, &nbsp; &nb...
EPISCOPAL CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
EPISCOPAL CHURCH. The frame work for the erection of the Church, we are glad to hear, is to be immedi- ately brought up to Adelaide, the tender of Messrs. Cock and Ferguson having been ac- cepted by the trustees. The building may therefore be expected to be erected without fur- ther delay, and ready for public worship in about two months. We may take this opportunity of correcting a mistake which occurred in an article regar- ding the Church in our number of the 8th July last. It was there stated that the town acre on which the parsonage house, attached to Trinity Church, is erected, was the gift of Mr. Raikes Currie; the donor was Mr. Pascoe St. Leger Grenfell, who has also liberally &nbsp; made a grant of forty acres of country land, part of which is to be used as a cemetry, and the remainder reserved as globe land for the incumbent of Trinity Church. The praise- worthy exertions of Mr. Raikes Currie in promoting the religious welfare of the colony, led us to conclude th...
POSTSCRIPTUM. Tuesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
POSTSCRIPTUM. Tuesday Evening. HER MAJESTY'S BIRTHDAY—Her Majesty's Birthday was celebrated yesterday with every de- &nbsp; monstration of respect. Royal salutes of twenty- &nbsp; one guns were fired from the Naval officers' cut- ter in the Harbour, and from the guns at Glenelg. At Adelaide the Marines were paraded at noon in front of the Government House, where they fired &nbsp; a feu de joie. In the evening, His Excellency and Mrs. Hindmarsh gave a Ball, which was well at- tended, and the dancing kept up with great spirit till an early hour this morning. The Governor we understand was pleased on this occasion to remit to three prisoners confined for petty offen- ces, the remainder of their term of imprisonment.
LAW OF MASTER AND SERVANT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
LAW OF MASTER AND SERVANT. As great ignorance prevails among the working classes, as well as among masters or employers themselves, regarding the law under which their engagements are regulated and en- &nbsp; forced, we have deemed it our duty to pub- lish the important clauses of the Act of the Legislative Council, No. 3, that the excuse of &nbsp; ignorance may not in future be put forth in justification or palliation of the numerous in- &nbsp; fringements of the law, which we regret to say, are of daily occurrence. That all disputes and differences between &nbsp; &nbsp; master and servant, arising out of their relative characters as such, shall be cognizable in a sum- mary manner by his Majesty's justices of the peace, &nbsp; or magistrates for the said province, or for any of the several districts of the same, and any of the said justices or magistrates are hereby authorised &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
ENGLISH NEWS. THE KING'S SPEECH.—Parliament met on the 31st of January when His Majesty delivered the following Speech:— "MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN— "We are commanded by his Majesty to ac- quaint you that his Majesty continues to receive from all Foreign Powers the strong assurances of their friendly disposition, and his Majesty trust that the experience of the blessings which peace confers upon nations will tend to confirm and se- cure the present tranquility. "His Majesty laments that the civil contest which has agitated the Spanish Monarchy has not yet been brought to a close; but his Majesty has continued to afford to the Queen of Spain that &nbsp; aid which, by the Treaty of Quadruple Alliance of 1834, his Majesty engaged to give if it should &nbsp; become necessary; and his Majesty rejoices that his co-operating force has rendered useful assis- &nbsp; tance to the troops of her Catholic Majesty. &nbsp; "Events have happened in Portugal, which, for ...

THE HARBOUR AT PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
THE HARBOUR AT PORT ADELAIDE. We have great satisfaction of laying before our readers the following notes which His Ex- cellency the Governor has done us the honour to address to us regarding the report made by Mr. Wood, Master of H.M.S. Buffalo, pub- lished in our last number. We now reprint that report, and subjoin His Excellency's ob- servations to the paragraphs of that document to which they refer. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. An official report respecting Port Adelaide, from Mr. Wood, Master of H.M.S. Buffalo, having appeared in the South Australian Gazette of this date, the Governor requests that the Editor will have the goodness to republish it in the next number, with the accompanying remarks, made by the Governor at the time he received the report from Mr. Wood. The Governor is induced to make this request in order to prevent the unfavourable impression which Mr. Wood's report would tend to create amongst the shipping interest both at home and in the ...
CAPTAIN DUFF OF THE AFRICAINE. Adelaide, 27th July 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
CAPTAIN DUFF OF THE AFRICAINE. Adelaide, 27th July 1837. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, ROBERT GOUGER We are, Sir, your obedient Servants, To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Sir,—My attention has been called by Captain &nbsp; Duff of the Africaine, to the following paragraph contained in your journal of the 8th instant. Mr. Robert Fisher, in his account of an Excursion into the interior of Kangaroo Island, says, "I cannot help speaking of Captain Duff only in terms of reproach; when he heard from Mr. Stephens it was unlikely we should ever return, he was in duty bound to have kept his vessel in &nbsp; Nepean Bay a few days longer, to have ascertained the result, and not allow some of us to remain on the Island at least a month before we could proceed to the main, and then only by the indulgence of Mr. Samuel Stephens." The gentlemen who undertook the unfortunate excursion alluded to, did so merely for their own gratification and contrary to the ad...
THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. AUGUST 12,1837. THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE TO INTENDING EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. AUGUST 12, 1837. THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUS- &nbsp; TRALIAN GAZETTE TO INTENDING EMIGRANTS. It is my interest to induce as many of you as I can to become citizens of the Free Province of South Australia. Every new comer is so much in the pocket of a newspaper proprietor. I might abuse Canada—sneer at New South Wales or Van Diemen's Land—talk of Swan River and Sir Gregor Macgregor in the same breath —and tell you that there is nothing under the sun half so rich in soil, or so lovely in cli- mate, as South Australia. But this I shall not do. Canada is a very tolerable country, and bating the ague and politics, it is one where a man can live comfortably enough. If New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land had not the curse of convict labour entailed upon them— if social existence was not poisoned at its source —I have no doubt, hard-working people, with- out families of children especially, might do well there. Swan River has in some measure failed...
RESIGNATIONS OF THE COLONIAL COMMISSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
RESIGNATIONS OF THE COLONIAL COMMISSIONER. We could have wished the fact, that the Colonial Commissioner had twice, during the last four mouths, tendered the resignation of his office, to remain in abeyance —at least till the result was known. But we have been taunted on both sides—the one for publishing too much—the other for publishing too little-— that we are determined not to offend the latter party further; and we therefore promise them every wrap of information regarding the Colony and the doings of its officers that we can lay our hands upon, or cram into our narrow columns. Early in April it was reported that Mr. Fisher had tendered the resignation of his seat in Council. The reason assigned, we have heard, was the pressure of his other duties as Resident Commissioner. But the precise terms of that resignation, whether it was immediate or pro- spective, or whether or no it was accepted, we have no means of knowing. At all events, on &nbsp; the report being circulated...
ENCOUNTER BAY EXPEDITION. To die Editor of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
ENCOUNTER BAY EXPEDITION. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Mr. EDITOR, —Having understood that an acc- ount of the overland expedition to Encounter Bay would appear in the paper, I felt much sur- &nbsp; prised and disappointed at not finding it there. I hope therefore, that the press of other matter was the cause of its exclusion, and that you will favour us with it in your next, not merely as a gratification to your readers here, but it will be of great advantage to the Colony to have it known elsewhere, that there is, within a short distance (so report says,) a great extent of rich grazing land. I am, Sir, your humble servant, A True Colonist. We are sorry that it is not in our power to oblige our worthy correspondent with any official or authorised account of the Excursion to Encounter Bay he alludes to in his letter — no information on the subject having been fur- nished to us, although it was, no doubt, un- dertaken by the parties engaged in it as an act o...

To Editor of the South Australian Gazette. July 10th, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 August 1837
To Editor of the South Australian Gazette. July 10th, 1837. Sir, —Since I forwarded to you my letter of the 6th, I observe from a correspondence published in the last number of the Gazette, that Mr. Fisher has announced his "resolution of never answering &nbsp; anonymous statements." Mr. Fisher is at liberty to do as he pleases, but the Colonial Commissioner is the paid servant of the Colonists, and must answer fair and proper questions involving his public proceedings, put to him through the medium of the newspapers. He has no right to be exempted from the fate of every public man, in every country where the press is free—where men dare speak their mind, and where the subject is the warrant for so doing. I am, Sir, &c., A COLONIST. Being desirous in all cases where it is practi- cable to afford every facility for explanation, we thought it an act of fairness to transmit a proof of the above letters to the Resident Com- missioner, accompanied by the following note : ...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. We thank SUB for his consideration; but the man's &nbsp; habitual contempt of veracity is too well understood here and elsewhere, to render any additional exposure of ours necessary. Besides, we have no desire to tram- pie on a worm, especially when it is crawling out of the way. We regret we have not space left for the Colo- nist's excellent letter to us, and his further queries to Mr. Fisher; and we have to thank him for the copy of &nbsp; that functionary's Instructions. We shall publish both in our next. Two letters—one from Colonel Light, &nbsp; &nbsp; and another in reference to his proceedings—are in type. &nbsp; We suspect W.B. is attempting a silly hoax. Who would read the lives of either of the persons mentioned by him if they were printed, and what concern has the public with their private histories or transactions? &nbsp; We cannot print the letter of PAUL—though there may &nbsp; be truth ...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette.

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. GOOD NEWS FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA ! [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837
To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. GOOD NEWS FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA! &nbsp; Sir—Hitherto, it has been thought, that the pros- pect of making profits on mercantile transactions would secure a supply of goods, known to be in demand, in any market. But the Colonists of South Australia, have reason to rejoice that other &nbsp; causes are in operation in their behalf. Some of the benevolent, good people of Sydney, having heard of the necessities of this colony from a friend of theirs, who had no doubt witnessed perhaps profited by them, have magnanimously ex- erted themselves in hope of enjoying—a second time, the sweets of profit?—oh no! but of relieving, &nbsp; it is said, our wants. Duly appreciating the dis- interested benevolence of their motives, it is right, that in this race of high-minded generous feeling, we should not be behind our neighbours; and in &nbsp; order that we may be enabled to estimate our ob- ligations...
