ALL PUBLIC ACTS appearing in this Gazette, signed by the proper authorities, are to be con- sidered official and obeyed an such. By command, GEO. M. STEPHEN, Colonial Secretary. PROCLAMATION By His Excellency Lieutenant-Colonel George Gawler, Knight of the Royal Hanoverian Guelphic Order, Governor and Commander-in- Chief of the Province of South Australia. WHEREAS the Right Honorable the Se- cretary of State for the Colonies, in a   Dispatch dated the 16th June, 1838, has trans- mitted an Order passed by Her Majesty in Council on the 8th June, 1838, revoking the Order passed by His late Majesty in Council on the 23rd February 1836 and appointing certain Officers named therein to be Members of the Legislative Council of South Australia: Now I, the Governor, do hereby proclaim that the un- dermentioned Officers have been nominated and appointed Members of the said Council ac- cordingly:— The Governor for the time being, or the Officer administering the Government; The Col...

THE TROUBRIDGE SHOAL [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 December 1838

THE TROUBRIDGE SHOAL THIS shoal—altogether out of the fair way of the gulf—has been found out in the most un- accountable manner by two vessels—namely, by the Dart, of which a Mr. Pollard, from Syd- ney, was the owner or supercargo ; and by the Parsee from Hobart Town. Of the Captain of the Parsee we hear exceedingly favor- able accounts, and are quite willing to concur in the general belief of his passen- gers that the unfortunate loss of his ves- sel is to be mainly attributed to accident. We must say, however, that it was a sad neg- lect to lay the lead in, as had the usual precautions under similar circumstances been taken it would have been impossible acci- dentally to run the vessel ashore in a part of the Galf where the soundings de- crease so regularly. We cannot, however, participate in any of the absurd apprehensions which we observe exist in certain quarters as to the injury these events are likely to do the character of our roadstead or port, with either of which Troubri...

THE PROPOSED MEDICAL BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 December 1838

THE PROPOSED MEDICAL BOARD. I have the honor to remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, J. E. B. We are glad to understand that the regularly qualified medical practitioners of Adelaide are about to take the steps we ventured to suggest in a former number in reference to the appoint- ment of a medical board; and we are quite sure that his Excellency will give every pos- sible encouragement to a measure so essential as well to the respectability of the profession as to the health and safety of the inhabitants. On this subject we have received the following letter, which we publish with great satis- faction :— To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. November 23, 1838. Gentlemen— The appointment of a medical board is essential not only as regards the con- servancy of the profession, but also as a source of medical information to the Government. An order enjoining quarantine regulations once   appeared, which, I think, would not have been advised by medical men. Q...

[advertisement.] To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Stephens Place, Nov. 24, 1838. GENTLEMEN—The persuasion I entertain   that any individual in the colony, if found in   similar circumstances, would experience the same kind and active benevolence from the representa- tive of the sovereign, in the person of Colonel Gawler, which has been so promptly exercised in the case of Mrs. Boucher, will form a sufficient apology for my soliciting your publication of the following letter. Occupied as my mind was with the melancholy situation of my friend and his family, I could not think of nothing else; but his Excellency did not forget, unsolicited, to order that the other passen- gers with their light luggage should also be re- ceived on board the Rapid, at the same time strictly enjoining that there should not be a mo- ment's delay, in order, if possible, to save the life of Mrs. Boucher. I am, Gentlemen, Yours respectfully, R. L. MILNE. To His Excelle...

PUBLIC DINNER TO THE RESIDENT MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 1 December 1838

PUBLIC DINNER TO THE RESIDENT MAGISTRATE. On Friday, the 23rd of November, being the anniversary of the commencement of the business of the Resident Magistrate Court for the district of Adelaide, his Worship H. R. Wigley, Esq., was invited by a number of gentlemen to meet them at dinner to celebrate the event. His Honor the Judge, all the barristers of the province, and a number of the most re- spectable colonists attended, and at six o'clock sat down to a sumptuous dinner at the Adelaide Tavern, provided by the worthy landlord, Mr. Sladden. His Honor the Judge in the chair. After the cloth was removed, and the Queen, the Governor, and the usual loyal toasts had been       drank, the chairman rose, and in a very eloquent speech proposed the health of the Resident Magistrate, alluding to the manner in which Mr. Wigley had discharged the duties of that office for so small a remuneration, and the good   which the Resdient Magistrate's...

Their names. 2. The quantity of pasturage they wish to take on lease; and, if preliminary landholders, their order of choice and the quantity to which they are entitled. 8. The bearing by compass of the centre of the district they desire to select, from some prominent and well-known point of country, such as the summit of Mount Lofty, Mount barker, &c. 4. As nearly as possible the distance of the same in yards from the same prominent and well known point.

IMPORTATION OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 December 1838

IMPORTATION OF STOCK. We rejoice to learn by late advices from Sydney and Van Diemen's Land that pre- parations on a most extensive scale are making in both these colonies for the exportation to this province of all descriptions of stock. We have just heard that Mr. Hawdon, the gentleman to whom we are indebted for first shewing the practicability of an overland route from New South Wales to South Australia —has arrived in the Lady Mary Pelham; and   that he has an extensive herd on the way, which may be expected in about eight weeks. Dr. Sherwin is said to be en route with a herd be- longing to himself and others, of not less than 1500 head. Our friend Mr. Eyre is also on the way with slock and sheep. It is probable Capt. Sturt will bring or send over, in the course of January or February, 500 prime cattle; and Messrs. Macleod and Macphsrson will bring about the same number and about the same time.   Lieut. Field gives up the command of the Coloni- zation ...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 8.1838. THE NEW HARBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 December 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 8, 1838. THE NEW HARBOUR. It is most gratifying the observe not merely the decisive promptitude, but the beneficial tendency of Governor Gawler's public actions. One day's examination of the present harbour fully satisfied his Excellency that it had become " most inconvenient, discreditable and injurious to the public interests; " and the next a plain in- timation was officially given that a road to the new port would be speedily opened. Within the short space of a month a complete examination of the proposed harbour has been made; the road to it, carefully explored by his Excel- lency himself, is now laid down; and in spite of difficulties innumerable and of obstacles which at first sight might have been considered by one of less nerve almost insurmountable, the   matter is all but definitively decided. In the Gazette Extraordinary of Wednesday, re- published in the Gazette of to-day, a clear and comprehensive notice of the arr...

THE NEW COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 December 1838

THE NEW COUNCIL. It in really with no slight feeling of com- passion for the unfortunate position of the gentleman whose elaborate articles on the con- stitution and principles of South Australia have lately created so much merriment, that we advert to the " unkindest cut of all" he has just received. He was in a bad enough case before certainly; but to have all his fine fancies demolished-—all his beautiful theories overturned—to be irrevocably " stumped" as Major Downing would say, by a single stroke of the pen, was a blow as severe as it was un- expected. A few hours ago it was a point settled (by Mr. Mann) beyond all doubt, that the Council of Government was composed— not of official functionaries merely whose right to a seat in Council depended on their tenure of office—but of persons ; that is to say, that Messrs. Mann and Fisher being by name once constituted members of the Council of Government continued to remain so, even after their official existence had terminated! This ...

ACTS OF COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 December 1838

ACTS OF COUNCIL The first four acts of our colonial Council have undergone the ordeal of examination by the legal committee of Her Majesty's Privy Coun- cil, and the result is, that the two first—the Quarter Sessions and Qualification of Jurors acts, have been confirmed; and the two last, the Master and Servant and Licensing acts, have been disallowed. The Master and Servant act was intended if not calculated, to secure good faith being kept between the employer and the employed, and more particularly to oblige the emigrant who had been brought here at public expense on the faith of an agreement to serve a master for a certain period, to act honestly and fulfil his contract. It must not be supposed that the disallowance of the act refers to or impeaches this principle. On the contrary it is fully con- firmed. The objection taken was to the com- prehensive nature of the enactments, whereby   on the one hand, though evidently meant to ap- ply chiefly to laborers in husban...

LEASES OF PASTURAGE [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 December 1838

LEASES OF PASTURAGE Now that the stock in the colony is so nume- rous, and the prospect of its increase so cer- tain, it becomes every day more imperative that some definitive step should be taken with re- gard to the rights of pasturage held by the preliminary purchasers, that the numerous settlers not entitled to priority of selection, but desirous to commence stock farming, may be enabled to do so under the legal arrangements which the Resident Commissioner is empowered to make with reference to the letting of un- sold portions of the territory. To enable the settler on his arrival to locate himself upon a lease of pasture land, would go far to remove the evils which the blunders and mismanagement of the survey have hitherto entailed upon the colony, and if, under the peculiar circumstances of the province, some liberal modification of the regulations on ths subject were entertained, the emigrant, with increased facilities for the most lucrative branches of pastoral firming freel...

REPORT OF A VISIT TO YORK'S PENINSULA?—BY MESSRS. COCK AND JAMESON. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 8 December 1838

REPORT OF A VISIT TO YORK'S PENINSULA—BY MESSRS. COCK AND JAMESON. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN—Being desirous previous to my return to England to dispel some portion of the doubt or rather the complete ignorance which exists respecting York's Peninsula and the country near Port Lincoln, I gladly availed myself of the opportunity of joining some gentlemen in an expedition to those coasts. Much interest is known to exist, especially in England, concerning these localities--an in- terest which appears to be well founded when we reflect that to a pastoral and grazing country, with a rapidly increasing population, space in an object of the first importance. From the geographical relations of Spencer'                           Gulf, it is to be inferred that its shores are not less fertile tha...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. WE rejoice to learn that a number of colonists have resolved to institute a society, having for its object the encouragement and improvement of all descriptions of agriculture, rearing of stock. &c. ; and that they are preparing a statement of their views, which will probably be submitted to a public meeting in the course of the present month. His Excellency the Governor is understood to have expressed him self exceedingly favorable to the project, and will probably take an active share in its establishment. The plan of the Highland Society is to be followed as far as practicable ; and we earnestly trust that a scheme so certain to produce lasting benefits to the colony and so likely to hasten the full developement of its natural resources will not be suffered, like so many others we have heard of, to languish or fall through.

THE COLONIAL REGISTER SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1838. THE RAINS. DURING the last week we have had most de- lightful rains.

We have been favored by Mr. Kingston, civil engineer, with the following very interesting register of the rain-guage for the last four months ; and when we consider that during the first three mouths of the same period not a drop of rain had gladdened the extensive territory of Now South Wales, we have great reason for thank- fulness that our " lines have fallen in pleasant places."
