THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22. 1838. THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 22 December 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22. 1838. THE NEW PORT. The difficulties attendant upon the removal of the present port do not decrease, we are sorry to say, on nearer inspection. Turn the matter which way you will, an array of ob- stacles present themselves, so serious in extent and in number so great, that in con- sidering them separately or en masse, we have been more than once tempted to acknowledge that, with all its discreditable inconveniences, the port had better remain as it is. The con- sequences of the deplorable blunder of the late Surveyor-general are, in fact, only be- ginning to become apparent. It is impossible to foresee, with any degree of distinctness, the result—especially if private interests are either to be placed on the same footing or to be held paramount to the welfare of the colony, and an acknowledged public improvement is to be impeded by the utter impossibility of satisfying these interests. Our desire to bring the matter to a right, and if po...

THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

THE NEW PORT. IN our last we considered, at some length, the difficulties in which the question connected with the removal of the present port was involved in the first instance by the blunders of the late Surveyor-general, and in the second, by the proposal to allow the preliminary landowners who have already chosen their section a re- choice at the proposed harbour. We now pro- ceed to examine the necessity and the practica-     bility of the measure. It seems to be generally conceded that the character affixed to the existing port by Co- lonel Gawler is a fair one—and that it is " in- convenient, disreputable, and injurious to the pub- lic interests." This description, indeed, is mild and under drawn, when compared to that which has been given of the place by those more im- mediately connected with it—by the masters of ships, the agents at the Port, and the merchants of Adelaide. It is impossible to deny that the delays and difficulties in discharging, a...

THIS COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 29. 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

THIS COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 29. 1838. THE Prince George and Glenalvon from London — the Zebra from Altona - the Parland from Sydney — and the Socrates from Launceston, ar- rived yesterday, and the Black Joke, from Port Phillip, on the 27th. There are now about twenty vessels in the roads and harbour. The latest advices from London are up to the 4th September. There is no intelligence of im- portance ; but the late hour at which we received our papers prevents a summary till our next. The demand for land, we rejoice to say, continues to increase. Nearly 9000 acres have been lately sold; and a party of noblemen and gentlemen are said to have formed an association for the pur- pose of purchasing land in South Australia. The Dukes of Sutherland and Richmond are at the head of this undertaking. The New Judge.-—Henry Cooper, Esq., Bar- rister, has been appointed Chief Justice of the Province of South Australia. His Honor is ex- pected to arrive early in February.

THE AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL BANK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

THE AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL BANK. SOME months ago considerable curiosity was excited by the report that a bank, having for its main object the assistance of the agri- culturist, was about to be opened in Adelaide on terms which were to put to shame all pre- conceived notions of the liberality of similar establishments. In a little time the report acquired consistency by the publication of a printed prospectus of the undertaking, which, though containing this rather unusual sentence " It is requested that no one be permitted   to hawk this prospectus about, it being in- tended for the perusal of men of sense and capital only" — nevertheless obtained very general circulation, and, by the singularity of its proposals, added largely to the existing wonderment. Twenty-five per cent, was offered on deposits subject to recal at twelve months' notice. " The moment," says the prospectus, " the money is lodged in the bank, the depositor will be in possession of an annual return w...

VALIDITY OF LAND GRANTS. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, December 18, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

VALIDITY OF LAND GRANTS. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, December 18, 1838. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, AMICUS CURLE GENTLEMEN—Your observations on the illegality of all land grants hearing a date antecedent to the removal of the Colonial Commissioner, and ac- tually signed by that gentleman since the duties of the office have been assumed by his successor, Colonel Gawler, are consistent with the universally recognised rule of law, that a false date invalidates the document bearing it; and that consequently all land grants so executed by Mr. Fisher are void. I am at a loss to conceive the reason for such a course. It never could have been suggested on the ground that the land was actually sold during Mr. Fisher's tenure of office, as no one will dis- pute that if, instead of being superseded, Mr. Fisher had left the colony or died, the title to the land signed by Colonel Gawler would have been a good and sufficient title. The irregularity, ...

DISEASE AMONGST THE COMPANY'S CATTLE. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

DISEASE AMONGST THE COMPANY'S CATTLE. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN-I am sorry to inform you that a disease which threatens great destruction to the Company's cattle has been discovered, and which unless checked, may spread to the other herds, as it is well known there has been much carlessness among the Company's servants, who are ignorant of the nature and the cure of the disease. In Sydney, where the same complaint has existed, much damage bas been done; and I hope you will publish this in your Gazette, to put those who have cattle on their guard to prevent the con- tamination which might otherwise be spread and be very dangerous to animals in a healthy and clean condition. I am, Gentlemen, Yours respectfully, A Grazier. [The disease referred to by our correspondent is one of not unfrequent occurrence in England; but it is merely of a local nature, and very easily extirpated. We know nothing of the management or mismanagement of the Com- pany's herds o...

KINGSCOTE, KANGAROO ISLAND. To the Editors Of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, December 20, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

KINGSCOTE, KANGAROO ISLAND. To the Editors Of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, December 20, 1838. I am, Gentlemen, Very respectfully yours,   WM. GILES, Jun. GENTLEMEN - Permit me to submit to your notice the great facilities for vessels ballasting in Nepean Bay, Kangaroo Island.

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 29 December 1838

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. Her Majesty, we are happy to say, was in good health at the latest date. There has been no more popular sovereign since the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Parliament was to be prorogued about the 20th of August. The Houses will then have been sitting nine months. The Coronation.— An official statement has been laid before the House of Commons "of the sum which may probably be required to defray the expences incurred by the coronation," and the estimate is £70,000. From a calculation which has been made by persons very competent to form a judgment on the subject, it would appear that that the duty payable to government on the tim- ber used in the erections in Westminster Abbey, and the streets on the line through which the   royal procession had to pass, and for illuminations, &c., will amount to a sum equal to the whole of   the expence incurred by government for this coro- ' nation. The sum paid by the public for seats from which to have a view ...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN AMENDMENT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 5 January 1839

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN AMEND- MENT ACT. AN ACT, to amend that of 4 and 5 Will. IV, c. 95, has recently been carried through Par- liament; and from the total absence of remark or interest during its progress, our readers may suppose that its provisions are of the slighest possible importance. Indeed, the principal object seems to have been to rectify a blunder in the appointment of the Commissioners, in   so far as that appointment, though gazetted in the usual form, had not received the sign manual of his late Majesty, and a certain amount of illegality, of course, attached to present proceedings. All these, however, the   amended act confirms and declares to be valid. A power is also granted to the Commis- sioners to raise any part of what remains of the £200,000 originally allowed to be borrowed —that is, £161,000 —by way of redeemable annuity; and it is provided that the Com- missioners shall have power to appropriate one-third of the land sales in aid of ...

NOTES OF AN EXCURSION BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. We have been kindly favored with a brief out- line of the recent trip into the interior by his Excellency, which we publish with great pleasure. The party consisted of the Governor, Messrs. Hall (Private Secretary), Finniss, Gill, and Inman, with two servants; Chambers (the owner of the dray and bullocks), and a a bullock driver; also, two policemen, one of whom, however, was sent back to Adelaide on the third day. His Excellency started on Friday, December 14, and proceeded to Mr. Hack's cattle station at Mount Barker, visiting the station of the Cattle Company en route. On Saturday the party ascended Mount Barker, from which some observations were taken, and Lake Alexandrina, Hindmarsh Island, and the Murray, were distinctly seen. Currency Creek was reached on Saturday, the 22nd, and the party proceeded towards Encounter Bay on the 25th. It was intended to launch a whale boat in the creek and proceed to examine Hindmarsh Island...
