EXTRACTS. PROGRESS OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 3 April 1839

EXTRACTS. PROGRESS OF THE SOUTU AUSTRALIAN COLONY. WHEN Mr. Francis Baring's New Zealand Bill was discussed in the House of Commons, Sir George Grey, personifying official and bum- bureaucratic spite, went out of his way to mis- state some important facts with respect to the new colony of South Australia. He was set right by Mr. Hutt; who truly observed that Sir George had never been the candid opponent of that noble experiment in the art of colonization. The hostility of the Colonial Office was natural ; no means of jobbing in South Australia were placed at their disposal ; and the system of making a new settlement pay entirety the cost of its own establishment and government, exhibits       in shameful contrast the Downing Street ad-   ministration of the affairs of other colonies. But   it is not merely official misrepresentation that the     new colony is subject to. As long as there were ...

INVASION [?] INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 3 April 1839

INVASION OF INDIA.       SIR DE LACY EVANS some time ago published a little work upon the subject of the probability of the invasion of India overland, by Russia. It received as it deserved tbe highest attention, and it places the difficulties of such an attempt in so formidable a point of view, as to remove all apprehensions of its success. The low, narrow Steppe, watered by the Oxus, the only accessible gateway to the Peninsula, is destitute of wood, verdure, or productive earth, covered with drift sand, and in every sense of the word, a desert. A Russian Army would have to be brought down to Wolyd, across the Caspian, landed in the Bay of Balkau, marched by Kiara to the Oxus, ascending that River to Bockhara, thence on the Indus to Attock(630 miles) then to Delhi (440) bay, a total of 1070. Supposing the Army to have mustered at Bokhara---the Hindoo Kho range of Mountains which the invaders would have to pass are the most desolate in the wor...

SYDNEY AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 10 April 1839

SYDNEY AGRIOULTOnAL REPORT FOR JANUARY. WHETHER in the vast machinery of tbe universe, the Almighty Creator eo arranged the revolmiuns nf time, as le render the occasional visitation of droughts, &c" as incumbent upon the uature of his vast plan ; or whether we poor mortals are punished io that way for oar sins, we conceive to he a matter of speculation, but tn no wise a question of solotion by the most extensive human comprehension. From one of these causes, bas arisen a desolating and continued drought, which at present assumes an alarming aspect. To scarcely any harvest at all, has Succeeded the total destruction of the maize crop, to which the poor agriculturist looked forward with fervent hope, that it might relieve bis necessities somewhat, and keep famine from tbe door, which otherwise was almost inevitable. Many bave already deserted their tenements, while those who remain, rnminate in vain speculation, if they can discover any recourse to reseñé Hiern from the impen...

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 10 April 1839

To the Editor of tlie Southern Australian.

These reflections, had time permit ted. I intended to have sooner followed up by some ! further remarks on the same subject, ami with your ! pe»-mi>=ion, now intend doing so, as the explanation* I regarding the Act, published in the Gazette of j Saturday last, furnished by the Hon. G.M.Stephen, "a member of the legislature, and tbe Chairman of ! the body of Magistrates which had to woik out the Act," ought not to be allowed to pars without some j comment.

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 10 April 1839

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. VA?ï DÏEMEK'S LAND. - There has been a great diversity of opinion as to the position of the Town of Adelaide. Colonel Light looked with a soldier's eye for fuel and water, the twa great necessaries for the support of any con siderable population. The mercantile men looked for a convenient sea port. The subject has been dis cussed with much warmth, and, with other matters of considerable importance, having been referred tu the Secretary of State, Governor Gawler has considered it proper lo send home a confidential public officer to place the whole state of the colony before the great Autocrat of Downing-streer. We understand the Colonial Secretary, Mr. George Stephen, bas been selected for that purpose, not only in consequence of the hill and accurate information, which but from his haviag administered the Government with so much acknowledged ability, he is enabled to furnish, but also that bis near relationship to the working man in the Colonial Office, will place...

THE PRINTING MONOPOLY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 10 April 1839

THE PRINTING MONOPOLY. IN glancing over our files of Van Die men's Land newspapers we fell upon the following, which applies so well tb South Australia, that we cannot help giving it a place in our journal : - " We are informed that Mr. Elliston boasts that be receives £5000 per annum for the GovernmeuW printing-job-monjpoly, and that he does not care one. straw so long as it is continued to him. His * fixed contempt' then for the public is accounted for. So long as he receives £5000 a year for performing a contract which any other printer in the colony would do for £500 a year, Mr. Elliston will not care one straw for the colonists, whose industry is villainously taxed to support him. This barefaced monopoly fixes a blot upon Sir John Franklin's administration which will not be effaced while it lasts. When Sir Richard Bourke assumed the reins of the government of the sister colony, he found a printing monopoly existing there. It wanted certainly the atrocious character of that exis...

CHURCH MISSION—NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 10 April 1839

CHURCH MISSION - New Zealand DURING the recent visitation of the Church Missionary Establishments in New Zealand, Bishop of Australia found abundant proofs of the progress which christianity is making among the native inhabitants in the Bay of Islands, in the River Thames, and in other stations depend- ing upon those Missionary stations, In the administration of the rite of baptism the Mis-     sionaries are cautions, it might almost be termed   scrupulous, in putting to sufficient proof the       faith and steadfastness of professed converts in       christianity. Nevertheless the numbers [??] are very considerable, and there are at the differ-   ent stations upwards of two hundred expectants to whom the ordinance will, with all becoming     carefulness, be shortly extended.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIR,— I take the liberty of enclosing a copy of certain queries proposed to me by an esteemed friend in Glasgow, and beg to suggest the pro- priety of your inserting them in the Southern Australian, and of your either furnishing replies to them yourself, in a series of papers, or of taking measures to secure such replies being furnished by some of your correspondents, whose information, judgment, impartiality, and habits, qualify them for the task.   In doing so, you will do a service to the Colony, save many individuals the labour of writing in answer to such enquiries to their friends — diffuse much useful information, and withal, I have no doubt, greatly promote the sale of your paper. We have had enough of Thucydides and Cicero on the one hand, and of Don Ferdinand Mendez Pinto and the South Australian Gazette on the other to serve for a year to come; and sure I am, that if you will allow these worth...
