THE SELF-SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 December 1838

THE SELF-SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE. IT is pleasant to observe how gradually and completely the absurd crotchets of the prin- ciple-mongers are disappearing; and that the idea which among the better classes at home has operated so injuriously, namely, that South Australia was a mere Radical Utopia—a sort of New - Harmony - mutual - labor - bee - hive- Company, has been for some time very generally discountenanced, if not altogether dispelled. The delusions, in particular with reference to what is termed the self- supporting principle, is clearing away. An opportunity of publicly correcting erroneous impressions on this point was recently afforded, in parliament, to Mr. Hutt, one of the Commissioners; and we are bound to say that the honorable gentleman did good and able service to the colony on that occasion. He succeeded, as we think, triumph- antly, in demolishing the only alarming feature which the self-supporting principle possesses to the inhabitants of South Australia, namely, &...

NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 December 1838

NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE call the attention of our readers to the advertisement of this society. We regard it as an extraordinary event that, in the second year of our existence as a colony, such a society should be established and with a promising appearance of success. The intimate con- nection of the study of natural history with the advancement and progress of society is alone sufficient for us to urge the importance of af- fording this attempt every countenance and support. The meeting, though not large, was highly respectable, and we hear the number of original members much exceeds the anticipa-   tions of those gentlemen to whom the colony is indebted for commencing this society. We hope soon to see a museum with a library erected on the ground so handsomely given by the liberal treasurer, Osmond Gilles, Esq.

LINE OF PACKET SHIPS TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 December 1838

LINE OF PACKET SHIPS TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MOST of our readers are aware that the pro- vince is indebted to the enterprise of Messrs. Waddell, Beck, and Co. for the establishment of a regular line of packet ships from London to Port Adelaide; and we are confident that we speak the sentiments of every respectable and influential colonist when we say that they are determined to support these ships by every means in their power. It is scarcely possible to over-rate the importance of maintaining a communication with England at fixed periods; and we should deeply regret were the experi- ment to fail or even to prove lest successful than its originators anticipated. Several reports, apparently as malicious as we are glad to know they are unfounded, in reference to this undertaking, have been cir- culated both here and in London, but by parties too much interested to admit of the supposition that their endeavours to create a prejudice against the packet ships are founded in any desire to pro...

MR. MANN AND THE "PERSONS" OF THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 22 December 1838

MR. MANN AND THE "PERSONS" OF THE COUNCIL. A friend [?] us because of our having abandoned all notice of the delectable lucuru- bations of Mr. Mann ex-Advocate-general, who though in that character officially defunct, still     considers himself as a "person," a living member of the "free, open, and independent Council of Government which the founders of the co- lony, we are told, required His late Majesty's   Government to concede," before they em-   barked their precious persons and unmentionable talents for the distinguished province of South   Australia. Our articles he is pleased to say, amused and instructed the public far more than   any thing that ever appeared in the Gazette; and he regrets that so rich a subject for merriment   should be overlooked or neglected. We are obnoxious to the charge certainly; and ac- knowledge that we have not lately paid any attention to the painful sympt...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records."—Shakespeare. M. S. AN ODD TRAVELLER.-Thomas Coryate, called by Anthony Wood "the whetstone of the wits of the age," was born at Odcombe, in Somersetshire, of which place his father was rector in 1577. He held a situation in the household of Henry Prince of Wales, who was much diverted by his oddities. He made a pedestrian tour through several countries of Europe, in the course of which he walked 900 miles with one pair of shoes, which he had mended at Zurich, and which, on his return, he hung up in the church of his native parish as relics. He published on account of this tour under the title of "Crudities hastily gobbled   up in five months; Travels in France, Savoy,   Italy, Rhetia, Helvetia, Germany, and the Nether- lands." He afterwards visited Turkey, Persia, and the East Indies, travelling in so frugal a manner that, in a tour of three mouths, he says that he spent but 3/. sterling, living re...

BANKING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 22 December 1838

BANKING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. IT seems necessary to adopt some regulations in reference to our colonial system of banking with a view to the protection of the public against the mismanagement or misconduct of   there establishments. The first point of es-   sential importance is to guard against over- issues of paper; and a check ought forthwith to be imposed in this respect, as is usual in England and the colonies, by the official periodical returns of the banks, and an authorised verification of these returns. In the second, the issue of notes under £5 ought   to be slopped. In the event of a failure the pooror classes would be certain to be the most numerous holders of that description of poper, and of course the most severe sufferers. In the third, no unlicensed banks of issue ought to be permitted. This license need not be fixed at a high rate ; but it ought to be granted only to parties who have satisfied the Colonial government that they a...

MEDICAL PROFESSION. To the Editors of the South Australia Gazette. Adelaide, December 12, 1838. Gentlemen. Your most obedient servant. MEDICUS. are permitted to practice in Adelaide. If the system be not changed and the quacks exposed, that respectability will, bye and bye, be destroyed. A person who called himself a surgeon, and who administered medicines wherever he could find a patient, is now in prison on a charge of shop- lifting. This man, I believe, acquired all the information he possessed in a druggist's shop;   but the lives—and the property also as it ap- pears—of her Majesty's subjects were at his disposal for some time, owing to the want of a properly constituted board to regulate admissions. This defect, I understand, is to be remedied by the present Governor; but delays are dangerous;     as I can assure you that all the quacks of   Adelaide are not yet in prison, and that there are   still to be found a...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 22 December 1838

PORT PHILLIP. We have been kindly favoured by Captain Walker, R. N., with the first four numbers of the Port Phillip Gazette a new paper which we presume has superseded the Melbourne Advertiser, published by Mr Fawkner. The Gazette is neatly printed, and seems also to be   conducted with considerable ability. Line ad- vertisements are numerous and business-like, indicating very plainly the commercial and pastoral prosperity of the settlement. All ac- counts from Port Phillip agree in representing the fertility of the soil, the salubrity of the climate and the admirable adaptation of the whole dis- trict, for all varieties of agricultural pursuits. We shall rejoice at every onward step in its pro- gress and we trust the little feelings of jealous rivalry that have been expressed will give way to the consideration that the increased welfare of the neighbouring settlements is more or less advantageous to all. The following ex- tract of a private letter from one of the lead...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received a communication in re- ference to a "sheep transaction" which has made some little noise during the week, and in which Bills on London, drawn by the Agricultural Bank for a large amount on Messrs. Ladbroke and Co was refused as   payment by the owner of the flock. The whole transaction appears so exceedingly dis- creditable that we hesitate to publish the particulars till we have ascertained more cotrccly the precise facts —especially as we know some of the parties involved in the affair are most respectabl, and could not possibly be concerned in any tricky or improper pro- ceeding. Amicus Curiae on the Land Grants in our next. The subject is exceedingly im- portant and shall not be lost sight of.
