THE GOVERNMENT AND COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 26 January 1839

THE GOVERNMENT AND COUNCIL. The state of conglomeration into which the ci-devant Advocate-general, Mr. C. Mann, has tumbled in his recent struggles to interpret the South Australian Act, ought to excite very general commiseration. The poor gentleman has stuck at no assertion—boggled at no mis- statement — assumed false premises without hesitation—jumped fearlessly to unwarranted conclusions—and, strange to say, the matter remains precisely in the state in which he found it. If there be any difference, indeed, it is that the few persons who may have imagined Mr. Mann to have some foundation for his trash, are now undeceived; and we   venture to say that there is not an individual to be found in the colony, unless it be an avowed candidate for a straight jacket, who would venture to say " amen! " to his non- sense. It would be weary and unprofitable at present to recapitulate all the poor attorney's crotchets. One or two only of his most im- pudent mis-statements are wort...

It is quite clear tint the seat of Government must remain where it is, and Adelaide must continue for years the capital of the province. These circumstances are sufficient to raise, to a certain extent, the value of town property ; but to test Mr. Gouger's argument, let us suppose the seat of Govern ment to be d'angeJ, the capital joined to the place of business and removed to the port, what would theu become of Adelaide and its fresh water ?

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1839. MORE SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 26 January 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1839. MORE SPECIAL SURVEYS. WE know no more substantial proof of con- fidence in the prosperity of South Australia and of the value of her soil than that which is exhibited by the payment, in hard cash, of a sum of four thousand pounds for as many acres of land. Yet within these last two weeks no less than five special surveys have been demanded and twenty thousand pounds paid into the Colonial Treasury as their stipulated price. The survey taken during the past week by Mr. Robert Cock, land agent, on behalf of Matthew Smillie, Esq , has been selected to the north- ward of Mount Barker, and in one of the most fertile of the many fertile tracts of that rich neighbourhood; and a second special, de- manded by Mr. J. B. Hack, one of our oldest and most enterprising colonists, includes a singularly beautiful track south of Mount Barker. We learn that his Excellency the Resident Commissioner has determined to offer certain surveys to public con...

DINNER TO MR. GOUGER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 26 January 1839

DINNER TO MR. GOUGER. Sometime ago it was announced, with some- thing like an exulting flourish, that a piece of plate was to be presented and a public dinner given at Birmingham to Mr. Gouger. Of the " piece of plate" we shall probably hear some- thing further. The dinner turns out to have   been given by " the members of the Birming- ham South Australian Association" only. We are told that " besides the members of the Association there present—Mr. Blundell, from Hooton; Mr. Crowther and Mr Laston from Derby; Mr. Joule, from Stone; Mr. Johnson, from Morl Cliff; and Mr. Freeman, Mr. Gliddon, and Mr. George Morphett, from London. Several gentlemen, whose names are altogether unknown at Birmingham or else- where, spoke the usual quantum of common place — but the lion was, of course, Mr. Gouger. On his health being proposed— somewhat oddly enough, by the Vice Chairman, a Mr. Joseph Francis Taylor, Mr. Gouger, of   course, made a speech, and upon the whole, we ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We regret that we are obliged to put aside so many articles and communications in type for this number, but they shall appear in our next at the expence of a supplement. Mr. Stevenson's exposure of the unprincipled falsehoods affecting him is complete, and we lament exceedingly the exclusion of his letter till our next. If political warfare is to be carried into private life, some of the parties most active in that game will, we fear, cut a     sorry figure. The subject of the Town of Glenelg has not been forgotten; but ee believe   the resolution of the Resident Commissioner is finally taken in the matter.

SYDNEY.-ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 2 February 1839

SYDNEY.—ABORIGINES. GREAT excitement has recently existed in Sydney on the subject of the aborigines. Our readers will find in another column of the Gazette an account of the execution of seven men found guilty of murdering twenty-eight natives at a spot near Liverpool Plains. A more revolting murder was never perpetrated. The poor blacks, who were living peaceably near the murderers, were decoyed by them to a secluded spot and there assassinated in cold   blood. Circumstances lead to the belief that the actual murderers were the agents of others, and that there exists in New South Wales a patty bent on the extermination of the native population. We find in the Sydney Monitor of the 24th December the following extraordinary para- graph: The following conversation between two gen-   tlemen took place in the Military Barrack-square on Tuesday. just after the execution of the seven murderers of the native blacks, and while General   O'Connell was ...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1839. ANOTHER SPECIAL SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 2 February 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1839. ANOTHER SPECIAL SURVEY. DURING the last week another, being the eighth, special survey of fifteen thousand acres has been taken by C. Flaxman, Esq., on behalf of himself and others. We know of another in immediate contemplation, and we hear of several more, it is impossible to con- ceive the spirit which these surveys are infusing among, all classes of colonists; and we trust they will demonstrate in England, beyond all doubt, that the soil, climate, and situation of South Australia are far superior to any other known portion of New Holland. Let it always be borne in mind, that several of these surveys have been demanded by some of the largest stock proprietors of New South Wales —not merely alive to their own interests, but themselves the very best qualiiied to judge by comparison of the advantages of our more favored land. His Excellency has, in the most considerate manner, allowed land orders to be received to the extent of one-h...

GOVERNMENT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 2 February 1839

GOVERNMENT HOUSE. No opportunity is lost sight of by the re- publican party to sneer at all the proceedings of the Governor, whether they affect the framing of a law, the survey of a district, or the building of a house, and the colonists have daily demonstrated to them, that when no real grounds for snarling exist, the same loyal gentlemen never hesitate to invent a few, and then batter away at their own imaginary super structures like Don Quixote at the windmills, till they share the poor knight's fate and are laid sprawling in their native dirt. An attempt has been made to get up an outcry about the Government-house proposed to be erected. It is complained that after tradesmen have been twice induced to send in tenders, " the Governor is going to postpone the building altogether;" and — with a be- coming eye to the shop—Mr. Editor Mann advises resort to the "proper tribunals to     recover the expence of the specifications (estimates ?) the builders have been led to prepare," and...

THE COMMISSION OF ENQUIRY AND MR. MANN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 2 February 1839

THE COMMISSION OF ENQUIRY AND MR. MANN. IT is a matter, to ourselves personally, of most unaffected regret that the late Resident Com- missioner should have permitted his friend Mr. Mann to do him the fatal dis-service which that unhappy gentleman's last defensive effort has signally accomplished. We regret it the more because, politically speaking, Mr. Fisher had ceascd to exist; and the recent melancholy occurrence would, under other circumstances, have induced us to rest contented with the knowledge of facts we possessed, and to refrain from making that public use of them which   the insolent misrepresentations Mr. Mann has resorted to now render an imperative act of justice to those so foully and wickedly belied. This duty we shall perform in the next Gazette in such a manner as will allow Mr. Mann to gloat for the rest of his existence over the victim he has so ably assisted to ruin, and drive Mr. Fisher himself, too late, to repent that he has goaded on those who ...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 2 February 1839

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. EXECUTION.—Yesterday morning was that appointed for the execution of the seven unhappy men found guilty of the massacre of one or more of the twenty eight native Blacks at Dangar's Mile Creek, at the Big River, beyond Liverpool   Plains. Their deportment was humble and penitent, free from all vulgar bravado or cow- ardice. They were very pale but did not tremble. A most becoming deportment characterised their behavour from their entrance into the yard to their final exit on the scaffold. They listened with devote attention to the exhortations of the clergy of their respective religions, and fervently responded to their prayers. Previously to com- mencing their religious exercises, one of them     requested permission to embrace his fellow sufferers, which was instantly acceded to. They   all arose, and saluted each other on the cheek, and then shook hands in a manner very affecting to the bystanders. Preceded by th...
