OVERLAND COMMUNICATION WITH NEW SOUTH WALES?—OFFICIAL REPORT OF CAPTAIN STURT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 12 January 1839

OVERLAND COMMUNICATION WITH NEW SOUTH WALES—OFFICIAL REPORT OF CAPTAIN STURT. THE importance of an overland communi- cation between South Australia and New South Wales renders it our especial public duly to collect all information bearing upon or connected with its establishment. The ac- counts we formerly published of the journies of Messrs. Hawdon and Eyre, though most   useful and interesting, were scarcely so minute as we could have desired. Even Captain Sturt's history of his last expedition was only what, indeed, it professed to be, an incomplete and hurried sketch. Our wish being to finger-post the route as far as possible, we have very great satisfaction in presenting to our readers the following official and more   matured report of Captain Sturt's journey, overland, made to Sir George Gipps, Governor of New South Wales, and which His Ex- cellency has directed to be published in the official Gazette : — Sir—When I determined on proceeding by land t...

To the Rev. C. B. Howard, Colonial Chaplain. Adelaide, January 2, 1839. DEAR SIR — We, the undersigned, have read with indignation the unwarranted and unjust attack made upon you in the last number   of the Southern Australian, and hasten to express the deep feelings of regard, esteem, and respect with which your zealous piety and conscientious discharge of all the duties of your sacred office, have impressed our hearts. We lament that there should be found in the colony an individual who can in so dastardly a manner slander a Christian Minister, whose   office forbids him from repelling such attacks by the adoption ot strong measures, and who has Invariably kept aloof from the dissension of party strife, and been so exclusively devoted to his Ministry, readily affording to all without dis- tinction, the consolation of religion and the office We cannot permit this oportunity to pass   without recording our admiration of your un- wearied exertio...

THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

THE SURVEY. WE have great satisfaction in learning that our proposal to proceed with the surveys by public contract has met with the almost unanimous approval of the colonists; and that it is the opinion of the surveyors, in service and out of it, that were our suggestions adopted, the whole preliminary districts might be proceeded with simultaneously, and finished within three months ! Nay, more; we have reason to believe that the special surveys may advan- tageously be subjected to the same competition, and that they, too, may be accomplished in one-third of the time and at one-fifth of the expence likely to be spent and incurred under the existing system. The matter remains for the consideration of the Resident Commissioner; and we have little doubt he will, at an early period, be satisfied of the practicability as well as of the necessity of adopting our proposal. Under any circumstances, however, we are quite sure the survey department must be entirely remodelled —and the soone...

To THOMAS YOUNG COTTER, Esq., Colonial Surgeon. Franklin-street, Adelaide, Jan. 6, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

To THOMAS YOUNG COTTER, Esq., Colonial Surgeon. Franklin-street, Adelaide, Jan. 6, 1839. I remain, Sir, yours, AN INVALID. SIR—I beg leave respectfully to represent to you, as the head of the medical profession of Adelaide, the necessity for reporting on the arrival of every ship from England and the colonies the state of health of the crow and the passengers; and further, that no disembarkation be permitted till you are satisfied with the state of such health, and certify that there exists on board no infectious disease. We have lately heard of numerous English " Fever-ships." arriving at Sydney ; and I have been told by a gentleman, whose brother is now at that place, that the people there are dying by dozens of some sort of a contagious disease called by your brother doctors the influenza —an innocent name, although the complaint is bad enough. Trusting you will call the medical profession of Adelaide together and consult on these matters, [The subject alluded to by An Invalid it...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, January 10, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, January 10, 1839. " The rich man's wealth is his strong city, the de- struction of the poor is their poverty." GENTLEMEN-No man in South Australia but must be well aware that " party is the madness of the many for the gain of the few." There is an evil affecting: our trade which I bring before you. We are now able to supply our own hides, to manufacture our own leather; we have men used to the trades-why does not   government form, protect, and eneourage this trade; surely it does not advance a settlement to deny to its people their legitimate means of labor ? There is an objection where the ar- ticle is supplied at much greater cost than it could be imported at—at such a cost as would distress the purchaser; but such objection does not obtain, as I believe the extra amount paid on that manufactured here is only 2s, Gentlemen, EX UNO DISCE more than the article imported, while the dif- ference and comfort gained ...

SETTLEMENT AT MOUNT BARKER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

SETTLEMENT AT MOUNT BARKER. WHEN we had the pleasure to announce in our last that Mr. Hampden Dutton, Mr. Mac- farlane, Mr. Moore, and some other gentlemen from Sydney, had been so struck with the surpassing fertility of the Mount Barker dis- trict when compared to the richest tracts of New South Wales, that although they had arrived in the province without the slightest, intention of buying land or becoming settlers, had at once demanded a special survey of 15,000 acres, and intimated their resolution to send numerous herds and flocks and to become them- selves denizens of South Australia, we did not then expect so soon afterwards to have another pleasing illustration of what men of capital, enterprise, and, we may add, sound judgment, are capable of effecting in a short space of time. Mr. Dutton and his friends have not been con- tented with merely purchasing the land—they have determined to people it; and the favor- able opportunity afforded by the recent arrival of numerous Germ...

To THE EMIGRATION AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

To THE EMIGRATION AGENT. I am, Yours truly, N.B.B. SIR —I have now before me a letter from a gentleman, dated London, August 3, 183 [?], who writes that he was informed a few days previously by Mr. Rowland Hill, the Secretary ot the Commissioners at the Adelphi Terrace, that they believed there was still a great demand for labor in South Australia; but that in con- sequence of the Emigration Agent having made   such scanty reports of the state of the market, it was impossible to give positive information as to the amount either of the demand or the supply. I must do you the justice to say that Mr. Hill added that he believed Mr. Fisher had kept back your reports, as though that officer had been strictly ordered to send his own report and those of all the subordinate officers half-yearly, he had never yet sent one. Nothing doubting that you complied with your orders, and furnished Mr. Fisher with half-yearly reports of the arrival, settlement, and employment of the emigr...

OVERLAND COMMUNICATION WITH NEW SOUTH WALES ?— OFFICIAL REPORT OF CAPTAIN STURT. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

OVERLAND COMMUNICATION WITH NEW SOUTH WALES — OFFICIAL REPORT OF CAPTAIN STURT. (Concluded.)                     After keeping the river for about thirty-five miles below the angle, we struck across westerly into another dense brush, from which at eight miles we issued on a country of a totally different aspect and character. In the middle of the brushy sand- stone succeeded the limestone, and was again suc- ceeded by the finest slate and a rock of trap for- mation. We now were at the base of a range we have long kept in view, and which proved of less height on a near approach than when viewed from a distance. The range was composed of numerous minor branches, forming warm and sheltered vallies, abundantly watered, and covered with grass in one unbroken sward. There was not a tree upon them, but they stretched away westward for many miles, the lay of the ...

To Thomas YOUNG COTTER, Esq., Colonial Surgeon. Adelaide, Wednesday Evening, Jan. 16, [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

To Thomas YOUNG COTTER, Esq., Colonial   Surgeon. Adelaide, Wednesday Evening, Jan. 16, I am, Sir, Your most obedient servant, DETECTOR. SIR—I have read with considerable surprise   your article in Mr Macdougall's paper of this day headed "COLONIAL SURGEON," and am truly sorry you should have placed me in the painful situation of questioning your veracity   so directly as I am obliged to do. Not being myself a member of Apothecaries Hall, I cannot know whether the ticket of admission allows to a certain extent or prohibits altogether professional untruths; but I have examined several diplomas of the Royal Colleges in the possession of medical men— (your's I have not seen, nor can I discover your name in any list of surgeons or physicians ;) —and I find that though the sixth commandment may be violated with impunity, there is no permission granted to infringe the ninth. I must be plain with you, however, and tell you— 1st, It is not true, as you...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. January 10. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. January 10. I am, Gentlemen, Yours, AMICUS CURIAE. GENTLEMEN— A land agent asks me in your last paper "If Mr. Fisher, as Colonial Com- missioner, could not sell to himself as a private individual, or grant a valid title to these sections, are they still the property of the public and liable to be resold for the benefit of the Emigration Fund; or if that be not the case, would it be necessary, as no supposition of fraud exists, for Mr. Fisher, or those to whom he has sold or assigned the land in question, to apply to the present Commissioner or the Crown for a valid title ?" In answer to this question I hold it to be clear, according to the law of England, that Mr. Fisher, as Colonial Commissioner, acting himself as auctioneer, and himself granting a title to himself, could not legally sell to himgelf or himself become the purchaser of public land under the circum- stances stated. Whether the Crown, on ap- plication from Mr. Fisher or f...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. B y the Orleana from Liverpool, which port she left on the 30th of September, we have letters to 21st, and papers to 28th September. There is no news. Her Majesty was in excellent health; and political affairs, excepting a little usual holiday agitation in Ireland, exceedingly uninteresting. The harvest was nearly over throughout the Kingdom, and the crops were above an average. South Australia was creating unusual in- terest in all parts of the country ; and it was said that the emigration thitherward during the approaching season would be unprecedented. We have received the South Australian Re- cords ; and shall notice their contents, the Brummagem and other matters, fully in our next.

SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

SPECIAL SURVEYS. SINCE our announcement this day week of the first special survey taken by Mr. W. H. Dutton, in conjunction with Messrs. Moore and Mac- farlane of Sydney, and our excellent Colonial Treasurer, Mr. Gilles, of the fertile vallies running from Mount Barker to Lake Alexan- drina, three additional special surveys have been applied for and granted. Mr. J. B. Hack, whose station was selected by Mr. Dutton, has taken 4000 acres, we believe, between the Torrens and the Parry, near the sources of the latter stream, about twenty miles from Adelaide; and the South Australian Company two sur- veys—one at a place which has been named Lyndoch Valley, on the Parry, twenty-five miles distant from town; and the other, it is said, at about the same distance from town, but more to the north-west. The precise spot has not been indicated; and till that is done it is, of course, still open for tender.   Postscript.— Since the above was in type, we learn that the South Australi...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. JANUARY 19, 1839. NOTES MADE DURING A JOURNEY INTO THE INTERIOR BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 19 January 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1839. NOTES MADE DURING A JOURNEY INTO THE INTERIOR BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR. We have great satisfaction in presenting our readers with the following interesting notes — the result of observations on the character and features of the country forming the peninsula between Lake Alexandria and the Gulf St. Vincent, made by his Excellency the Governor during a recent journey:— 1. Between the river Torrens on the north and north-west, and Encounter Bay, the lower Mur ray, and Lake Alexandrina on the south and south-east, the country is intersected by three great mountain masses —the Mount Lofty, the Mount Barker or Great Ironstone, and the Mount Wakefield ranges. 2. The first of these, after attaining a central elevation at Mount Lofty of about 2450 feet (by barometrical measurement) above the level of the sea, falls very gradually to the south west, until it terminates in low cliffs on the sea shore be tween Onkaparinga and the Aldingha...
