SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 29 May 1839

SPECIAL SURVEYS. WE last week omitted to allude to a most important circumstance connected with the welfare of the colony, and one more especially gratifying when it is con- sidered that the field of enterprise thus opened up, will call forth a most ex- tensive investment of British capital in the province. We allude to the recent special surveys to the northward, claimed by Mr. Flaxman, partly on his own ac- count, and partly on the account of Geo.   F. Angas. Esq., of London. Mr. Flax- man having discovered a most beautiful and extensive country, possessing in a most eminent degree all the requisites of good land, plenty of water, abundance of timber, and proximity to the town, with excellent roads to it, and surrounded with almost limitless sheep runs, he   wisely considered that the acquisition of such a splendid property would be a for- tune to the possessor, and we sincerely congratulate the possessor of so fine a property, and we congratulate the col...

SUPREME COURTS—CRIMINAL SIDE. Adelaide, Tuesday, May 21. 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 29 May 1839

SUPREME COURTS-CRIMINAL SIDE. Adelaide Tuesday, May 21. 1839. The Criminal Sittings of the Supreme Court commenced this day at eleven o'clock. On taking his seat, his Honor the Judge stated that he attended at ten o'clock, and found nobody there, which he could easily account for as he was aware that a num ber of the grand jurymen had to come from a con siderable distance in the country. After the grand jury were sworn, his Honor re quested that counsel would withdraw previous to his delivery of the charge; and he then explained that it was customary in England to request counsel to withdraw on these occasions, in order, that as they were engaged in the cases to come before the court they might not take advantage of anything that should happen to fall from the judge in relation to those cases, and which custom he thought it advisable follow out here. His Honor then addressed the grand jury,to the following effect:     GlNTI.KBteN OF THE GRAND JuRT-I have I ...

COMMENCEMENT OF THE ROAD TO THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 29 May 1839

COMMENCEMENT OF THE HD A O If .THE KEW TORT. THE important ceremony of commencing the *aetr line of road to the New Port, (undertaken by the South Australian Company), took place cn Saturday last; and we do not recollect any circumstance connected with our prosperity as m colony, or of local and stirring interest, that has called forth a stronger feeling of delight on the part of every one of the colonists, or has been so warmly received by all. The object, of itself of the first importance to South Australia, in a commercial view, was sufficient to excite feelings of great interest and pleasure in the minds of those who have selected this beauti ful country as their future home, and who look upon its general advancement and prosperity as tending to ensure their own ~ more certain success ; but the occasion was especially set apart (if we may use the expression) as a day of national rejoicing, and one upon which all feelings of party were laid aside, and everyone seemed to be devote...

THE PROTECTOR! [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 5 June 1839

THE PROTECTOR ! WE make apology to Mr. Wyatt for not ! having attended to him before. Want of space, not of will, bas hitherto pre vented us. We know not that any evil can arise from delay. That Mr. Wyatt has grown cool is not likely ; that the subject has become less important is not possible. The Protector's letter, which we sub- ~ join, begins with a charge of cowardice ' against the late public meeting, and .end* I with a similar charge. The long inter vening space is occupied by d catalogo ' of the very desirable things which Mr W. has not done since he received his appointment. A public meeting calle;! to consider the remedy foran existing evil would til per form its duty if it omitted the considera tion of an important cause of that evil, merely because an officer connected with it chanced to be abse t.

WILLIAMS'S MISSIONARY ENTERPRISES IN THE SOUTH SEAS. CHARTER I.   THE venerable fathers and founders of the London Missionary Society, after having aroused the atten tion of the Christian public to the important duty of extending the knowledge and blessings of the Gospel, proceeded to the consideration of the very important and difficult question, " In what part of the world they should commence their work of mercy?" The late excellent Dr. Haweis, Rector of All Saints, Ald- winkle, also Chaplain to the late Countess of Hun tingdon, who was one of the founders of the Society, the father of the South Sea Mission, and amongst its most liberal supporters, was requested to prepare a " Memorial'' upon the subject, which was delivered at Surrey Chapel. In the course of his address, he says, " The field before us is immense ! O that we could enter at a thousand gates !- that every limb were a tongue, and every tongue a trumpet, to spread the joyful sound! Where so considerable....

We as signed a reason why they could not be inserted in that day's paper, and said that we would not pledge ourselves to their insertion at all. Hie statement that we had decidedly declined to insert there is so nearly like what we did say, that con« sidering the quarter from whence it came, its approach to correctness.occasioned us no little surprise. With regard to the documents-do they prove that the half I of Ute estate was ever sold for £20,000, j or £10,000? Do they prove that pre viously to the 13th of April, it had been sold for £8,000 ? They prove the exact contrary-that no sale for any amount had taken .place at that time, but t...
