To the Editor of the Southern Australian [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 5 January 1839

To the Editor of the Southern Australian SIR—In the South Australian Gazette of last week I see Mr. Stevenson again at work on my blunders. Heaven help this poor man, who has been nearly two years finding fault with my pro- ceedings, and now says the consequences of my blunders are only beginning to appear. I shall   not trouble myself with taking further notice of Mr. Stevenson at present, became I am pub- lishing a work in which his name will often appear, and which will, I trust, satisfy the reason- able part of the public as to the site of Adelaide, the harbour, the landing place, and the roads, and give at the same time a short history of the road ditch, as Mr. Stevenson calls it; in the meantime, perhaps, the following copy of one of Mr. Ste- venson's letters to me may amuse your readers. It seems by that letter that I made some [?] to measuring off any town sections at the [?],   and it also appears Mr. Stevenson was a strong advocate for part of the...

PROGRESS OF THE SURVEY ?— AN IMPORTANT PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 5 January 1839

PROGRESS OF THE SURVEY — AN IMPORTANT PROPOSAL. WE rejoice to learn that the survey of pre- liminary sections is proceeding in the most satisfactory manner, and that every exertion is making by the whole body of surveyors to meet the expectations of the Governor and the necessities of the public Considering, however, the acceleration of the survey to be of the greatest possible im- portance, we venture to suggest a plan, by the adopting of which, in our opinion, that object might be materially advanced.   It is abundantly clear that if the mode which has hitherto been followed respecting the pre- liminary sections is to be followed in all the reserved districts, the whole land must, in the first place, be divided into 134-acre sections; and then, after the preliminary sections are selected in each district, those remaining must be re-surveyed and sub-divided into 80-acre allotments - thereby incurring not only a serious additional expence, but what, under the circumstan...

THE AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL BANK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 5 January 1839

THE AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL BANK. R. L. MILNE. WE publish the following letter addressed to us by the Rev. Mr. R. L Milne, Manager of the Australian Agricultural Bank. What the poor man means by our violating the ashes of the dead &c., &c., we are mainly ignorant—     unless, perchance, his bubble bank has been actually slain by the exposition we felt it our duty to make retarding it in the last Gazette Of Mr. Milne in his private capacity, or of those connected with him, we said nothing, for the best of all possible reasons—because we know nothing. By his own account he is or rather he was the Manager of a great public institution offering 25 per cent. per annum for deposits, and as such we spoke of him and his concern. He has acted wisely in deigning no reply to our statement—every line of which, we repeat, is correct, and he had better not provoke us to return to the subject. As it is we leave his singular epistle to speak for itself; mer...

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. I am, Sir, Your, &c. CHAS. B. HOWARD, Colonial Chaplian. I remain, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, A. Land Agent. SIR—The article which appeared in your last number, reflecting upon my conduct in not accompanying the remains of a person deceased to the cemetry, compels me to seek the earliest opportunity of repelling the in- sinuations against my character therein con- tained by stating, that when I have failed to do so, it has been owing to ill health, the in- tervention of other more important clerical duty, or the want of punctuality in the parties attending the funeral. The distance of the cemetry from the church, which you would represent as an aggravation, although, in fact, an extenuation of my alleged offence, compels me in such cases to decline doing what, if personal convenience alone were to be sa- crificed, I would by no meant neglect. The character of a person who would " in-   decently hurt the feeli...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. JANUARY 5, 1839. LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 5 January 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1839. LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. Her Majesty was in good health on Sept. 3, and was residing for the season at Windsor Castle. HOUSE OF LORDS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16. Her Majesty this day prorogued the Imperial Parliament in person. Her Majesty wore the imperial crown — a   splendid and costly specimen of art—a superb diamond necklace, and a magnificent stomacher of the same dazzling materials. Her dress was of white satin, trimmed with the finest lace, over which was thrown a flowing mantle of crimson velvet. Her train was borne by the Duchess of Sutherland and the Marchioness of Normanby. Her Majesty read, in a clear and distinct voice, the speech, of which the following are the principal paragraphs : — My Lords and Gentlemen —     " The disturbances and insurrections which had unfortunately broken out in Upper and Lower Canada have been promptly suppressed; and I entertain a confident hope that firm and jud...

TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 5 January 1839

TO THE PUBLIC. An attempt has been made by the pro- prietors of the radical print to induce us to raise the price of the Gazette from the modest sum of sixpence to one shilling. Com- mercially speaking the former sum does not [?] us, and our paper from the com- [?] has never yet paid its own ex-   pence. But we shall nevertheless continue as we have begun—at the old price—trusting by the increased support which every day affords to be able to go on. We donot profess "to hold the interests of the colony paramount to our own " We do hold, however, cheap news, like cheap law, to be essential to the healthy progress of society, and we shall bear the risk or loss our determination ensures as long as we possibly can. We never yet read a mere news- paper that was worth more than sixpence, and we have not the vanity to suppose that the South Australian Gazette out-Herods its contemporaries.

LANDLORD AND TENANT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

LANDLORD AND TENANT. SOME difficulty has occasionally arisen between the owners and occupiers of houses and small properties in the town, which has not been lessened by the uncertainly in which the colony is placed regarding the state of the law on the   subject, and the actual rights of the parties in-   terested. It is probably the attention of our colonial law authorities will be directed to the     matter at no distant date, and we venture to suggest that an English act in reference to the subject be adopted as the law of South Austra-   lia. The following notice of the act to which we alluded is taken from the Weekly Dispatch of August 26 :— Recovery of Small Tenements Act.— This   statute, which has just received the Royal Assent,   provides that when a tenant or occupier of pre- mises where there is no rent, or where the rent   does not exceed 20l. a year, refuses to give p...

SHEEP AND WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

SHEEP AND WOOL. SHEEP'S wool is greatly modified by the breeding of the animal, for it is a soft hairy substance, mixed with a soft down close to the skin on the wild Argali, to which genus all the varieties of the domestic sheep have been traced. That animal and others with a similar coat, when placed in a temperate climate under the fostering care of man, rose their long lank hair, and retain their soft   wool. It has been ascertained that the female has   more influence than the male ont he form of an animal; but that the male in sheep in particular, gives the peculiar character to the fleece. The produce of a breed from a coarse wooled ewe and a fine wooled ram will give a fleece approaching half way to that of the male; and a breed from     this progeny with a fine wooled ram will yield a   fleece differing only by one fourth from that of the sire; by proceeding in the opposite ratio the wool will rapidly degenera...

THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

THE SURVEY. WE have long been of opinion that the system under which the surveys of South Australia are conducted is the worst, the least efficient, —and the most expensive that could have been adopted. Our conviction augments daily, that if the whole emigration fund is not to be swallowed up in the cost of surveying the land which ought to produce and augment it, an alteration must speedily be made, and the whole department placed on a different footing. It is almost incredible—but the fact is staring us in the face—that though the surveyors have been in the colony for nearly two years and a half —since August, 1836—the preliminary surveys are not yet completed; nay, that in several   districts they are not even begun ! We have formurly stated that the expences of the survey alone have consumed nearly if not entirely every shilling which the sale of the land has produced—we repeat that state- ment here ; and athough the survey is pro- ceeding under its present directio...

IMPORTATION OF STOCK OVERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

IMPORTATION OF STOCK OVER- LAND. RECENT letters from Sydney speak of im- portations of stock overland to South Australia being contemplated on a large scale. We have reason to believe that more than one herd of fine cattle at this moment is within less than five week's journey of Adelaide; and, in all probability, our former calculations of the numbers expected to arrive during the present season will turn out to have been considerably under-rated. It is certain, therefore, that   the present extravagant prices demanded for stock and butcher-meat will soon be reduced. the precticability of importing sheep by land   has of late been a good deal discussed; and although both Mr. Hawdon and Mr. Eyre   were of opinion that it could be accomplished       with ease and safety, and have resolved to make the attempt, some persons, interested no doubt adversely in some shape or other, have been found to assert its i...

SECONDARY TOWN AT GLENELG. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

SECONDARY TOWN AT GLENELG. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, A PRELIMINARY LANDOWNER NEAR GLENELG. GENTLEMEN-Can you tell the public why the secondary town allotments at Glenelg are not brought into the market? On the faith of that being done I selected a preliminary sec- tion, the value of which will depend altogether on the existence and the prosperity of that   town. In my opinion, it is not using those will who have paid for their property three years ago, to be still deprived of the benefits   arising from it they were promised, and which       they had every right to expect would be re- alised. I do not wish to be captious, but the general opinion is that the survey is costing more and doing less at the present than ever;   and I hope the Editors of the Gazette will not     desert the public at the present time.

STATE OF TRADE. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, January 2, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

STATE OF TRADE. To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, January 2, 1839. FAIR-PLAY GENTLEMEN-Perhaps now that the accounts current are settled with the horses, and that we may not at once fall into a galloping consump- tion, some attention will be given to the state of trade in the colony. I write not as an alarmist—I would rebut the   imputation of croaking, yet I must assert our   progression is at the present moment not quite so cheering as could be desired. To evade con- sideration of such statement will only add to   the evil. A check must be given to the competition into which the retailer has been forced with the prices of goods bona fide sold at the auction. This competition has been induced by specu- lators from other colonies whom it is not ne- cessary to assist to the prejudice of ourselves. I contend that having induced the formation   of a class—the retail traders—it is the bounden   duty...

FIRST SPECIAL SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

FIRST SPECIAL SURVEY. WE have at length the happiness to announce that a special survey has been ordered yesterday the sum of four thousand pounds was paid into the hands of the Colonial Trea- surer, Osmond Gilles, Esq, by William Hamp-   den Dutton, Esq., for the priority of choice of an equal number of acres out of 15,000 to be surveyed in the beautiful and fertile district of Mount Barker. Mr. Dutton is understood to be acting in connexion with Messrs. Mac- farlane, Moore, and several other gentlemen   recently arrived in Adelaide from Sydney. These gentlemen, we are told, have been de- lighted and astonished at the freshness of our pasture ranges when compared to the burnt-up and withered plains of New South Wales ; and this purchase is a tolerably distinct proof of their opinion. The centre of the proposed special survey is to be Mr. J. B. Hack's station near Mount Barker, than which a finer tract docs not exist. We heartily congratulate the friends of South Austra...
