FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 10 November 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records. "—SHAKSPEARE. Every thing by Comparison. —This world is a great balance in which every quality or ad- vantage is calculated by the ever-varying weights of comparison, until it almost becomes a doubt whether there really exists a standard by which to estimate the gifts of nature or of fortune. With regard to man, his history and character, an abstract idea is next to impossible; he is good or bad, rich or poor, happy or miserable, in com- parison with his fellow-men, and, according to circumstances, good in opposition to the less benevolent; rich with reference to those less favored by the caprice of fortune; happy in pro- portion as his temper is less affected by disagree- ables which sour that of others. The reason of this is evident: as no one quality upon earth is to be found in its superlative degree, it necessarily follows that it will be active in all its endless comparatives, varying in every man's disposition and for...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 10, 1838 ATTACK UPON THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 10 November 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1838 ATTACK UPON THE GOVERNOR. It is well that Colonel Gawler, if he had been persuaded to hope better things, was also fully prepared to encounter a strong opposition to his administration. We do not say that he was taught to look for that opposition in the precise quarters from whence it has arisen. The deceptions practised on the Commissioners were naturally imparted to the Governor; and   the impressions thereby created could not fail to have their effect. It was to us a matter of extreme indifference if these impressions were, in the first instance, unfavorable to the de- cided part we had taken in the political bick- erings of the province. We knew that if Co- lonel Gawler was indeed the well-educated and well-informed gentleman he was represented to be, rightly intrusted in the genuine prin- ciples of the colony, and a loyal subject of Her Majesty withal, a few days or weeks would undeceive him effectually. We depende...

TOWN AT ENCOUNTER BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 10 November 1838

TOWN AT ENCOUNTER BAY. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN— Observing in a late number a letter respecting Victor Harbour, as one interested in that place I beg to add a few words on the same subject. I am told, the Acting Sur- veyor-general being of the same opinion with those who do not attempt to cry down the place, that the plan of the proposed town there is, to use the mildest phrase, utterly useless and absurd, it is intended to do away with the township alto- gether. The reason given for this is, that the Commissioners do not contemplate the reservation of any sites for towns, but leave them to indi- vidual enterprise and speculation. This may be all right enough in future, but I conceive that they cannot act retrospectively ; for if they do it will be a breach of faith on their part, as we reserved our land for selection in district E, under an assurance from the Resident Commissioner that 150 acres should be laid out as a town at Victor Harbour, and th...

SPEARING OF CATTLE AND SHEEP BY THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 10 November 1838

SPEARING OF CATTLE AND SHEEP BY THE NATIVES. Considerable excitement has been created among the proprietors of stuck during the past week in consequence of several serious depre- dations having been committed by the natives on the herds and flocks depasturing at some short distance from Adelaide. Mr. G. A. Anstey in particular has been a considerable sufferer; and on Tuesday last week two very valuable heifer calves and three lambs were speared by a party of blacks in open day, and almost in the presence of the stock-keeper. In-   formation of the circimstance having been given to the government. His Excellency im- mediately directed the most prompt measures to be taken to secure the offenders; and our active superintendent of police, Mr Inman, with a sufficient force, proceeded Mr. An-     stey's station, and succeeded in apprehending and lodging in jail the three natives supposed   to be guilty of the crime. These men, known by t...

LEGALITY OK THE GOVERNOR'S APPOINTMENT AS RESIDENT COMMISSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 10 November 1838

LEGALITY OF THE GOVERNOR'S APPOINTMENT AS RESIDENT COMMISSIONER. The legal practitioners of the opposition are certainly a very motley group-at least if their opinions are to be taken as indicative of their acquirements. Indeed, their knowledge of law resembles and almost exceeds that possessed by Sir John Falstaff of the code of honor. The fat knight held running away to be the better   part of valor, and the radical attorneys think   chicanery the prime beauty of the profession.   We have just been favoured with an apt il- lustration. To Colonel Gawler has been con- fided the offices of Governor and Resident Com- missioner; and it being necessary, for the pur-   poses of a faction, to quarrel with his Excellency     in both capacities, the whole squad is in motion to "pick holes in his coat". One of them     having accordingly succeeded in grabbing up a quibble, it is immediatel...

THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 November 1838

THE ABORIGINES. THE treatment of the aborigines has begun to excite considerable interest in Sydney—just at the time, we fear, with regard to that settle- ment at least, it is too late. A public meet-                       ing was held on the 19th October, for the pur- pose of forming an Aborigines Protection So- ciety, auxiliary to the British Society under that title recently established in London. Mr. McLeay was in the chair, and several interesting speeches were delivered. We subjoin the remarks of Messrs. Windeyer and S. Stephen, two gentlemen whose opinions are opposed to each other, in order to enable our readers to form a judgment for themselves on this interesting subject; and we beg particu- larly to call attention to the remarks of the Rev. Dr. Lang, as explaining in a few words what the British Parliament really means by assuming ...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 17, 1536 "TAXATION?—GOVERNOR HINDMARSH." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 November 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 17, 1838 "TAXATION—GOVERNOR HINDMARSH." MR. MANN ought to have flourished several centuries ago—perhaps later than the time of the "third Plantagenet." At that period an erudite discussion on the points—" Who cannot tax," and " By whom can we be taxed?" might have afforded a modicum of information to the world. Nay, had the learned gentleman been hatched about the middle of the last century, he might have cackled during the American war, and by a possibility have dis- turbed if he could not save the capital. In the present darker age we fear his labor is in vain—his mountain does not produce even a mouse. Sorry are we to publish the fact, but such is the discipline into which the South Australian public has been whipt since the ' schoolmaster was abroad," that quotations from Blackstone's Commentaries, in reference to the royal prerogative, are literally thrown away upon them—nay, the radiant illustrations of the ex-advocate, with which thes...

HARBOUR SURVEY COMPANY. I have, &c, GEORGE HALL. H. Nixon, Esq. We have been favored by Mr. H. Nixon, the Secretary of the Company, with a copy of its proceedings, and a correspondence between himself and Mr. Hall, Private Secretary to the Governor, of which we willingly insert all that is of public interest:— Government House, Adelaide, Saturday, Nov. 10, 1838. Sir—His Excellency the Governor desires me to inform you that he is very desirous to throw open to purchase, as early as possible, the country within a radius of a mile and a half (on the average) from the point at which the north channel branches off from the harbour. His Ex- cellency would, therefore, feel particularly obliged to the members of the Harbour Survey Company   if they would furnish him with an accurate out- line and the general inshore soundings of that district. With reference to a subject which appears on the face of the rules under which the Company was founded, and upon which a questio...

ADDRESS TO THE LATE ACTING GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 November 1838

ADDRESS TO THE LATE ACTING GOVERNOR. It is rather a lucky circumstance for us that the principle-chewers seldom know the precise time when it is politic to let a subject alone. The address to the late Acting Governor, Mr. G. M. Stephen, for instance, had already been discusssd to tatters; and the views and conduct of the malcontents sufficiently exposed. But they persist in rendering themselves individually more ridiculous and the factious motives of their party more apparent. The address had been refused the signatures of some half dozen persons—why, we know not, and never enquired. It appears, however, that several of those persons who had so re- fused signed a requisition to the Sheriff for a public meeting worded as follows :— " Public Meeting—Sir—Understanding that   it is the general wish of the colonists to present the late Acting; Governor with a testimony of their respect for the manner in which he has ad- ministered the government of the province, we, the unde...

DROUGHT IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 17 November 1838

DROUGHT IN NEW SOUTH WALES. By the Sydney papers (to the 27th October) we observe that his Excellency Sir George Gipps had appointed Friday, 2nd November, to be observed as a day of fasting and humi- liation throughout New South Wales, on account of the calamitous drought with which that territory had been afflicted. While we deeply regret to perceive by the Accounts from the interior that the losses of   cattle and sheep, occasioned by the absence of rain, had been very great, still it ought to be a matter of lasting thankfulness to the Southern Australian, that while the regions to the east-   ward, lying in the same parallel of latitude,     have suffered go severely from drought, rains have fallen with their accustomed regularity in our more favored district, and that, in fact, judging from the richness of the herbage, the size and foliage of the trees, there is every reason to believe that the periodical tracts of dry weather ...
