MORE SPECIAL SURVETS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 12 June 1839

MORE SPECIAL SCRVET3. SINCE oar last, the Adelaide Survey Association have taken a special survey on the west coast of Gulf St Vincent, at the head of a fine bay recently discovered, and situated nearly opposite io Holdfast Bay. 1 he position and capabilities of this new poit, which has been named PorflSt. Vincent, we understand are first rate,and it must therefore soon become a piare of great importance The Association, our readers will recollect, lately took a survey at a place called by Capt. Flinders Point Pearce, in Spencer's Gulf. It turns out, how ever, that Flinders was mistaken, for that which he laid down as a point proves to be an island, behind which there has been found one of the finest har bours in this part of th* world-a splendid bay, completely sheltered »Vom .every wm»!, with a safe and easy entrance, and excellent anchorage.

To take the life of a fellow-creature, deliberately, appears to be a most serious and awful action, »nd one v>bich nothing can rerat ; it is like faking the office &f the Creator into onr own hands, aud is the greatest sln-tch ci power nh ich one man can exercise over another.

COLLEGE DIPLOMA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 12 June 1839

COLLEGE DIPLOMA. WE were somewhat am use J while com pelled to listen to the forensic eloquence of counsellor .fielding on the late trial of Tommy Roundhead atid others for mur der, at the endeavour he made to stultify ihe evidence given hy the Colonial Sur geon as to the cause of the death of the murdered mau. This our learned Theban tried to effect by examining the Surgeon as to his legal qualifications to ¿ctin that capacity, emleavouiiny; to ground ohjec-" tiona to his evidence on his not being in possession of a diploma from the RON al College of Surgeons.

RIGHTS OF PURCHASERS OF EIGHTY ACRE LAND ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 12 June 1839

RIGHTS OF PURCHASERS OF EIGHTY i ACRE LAND ORDERS. IN «ur last number we announced that this subject required aid would receive further comment. Before we proceed, - however, to carry out cur strictures, we cannot avoid a slight reference to the latest observations of our contemporary. , It is perfectly obvious -from theses that the opiuion of the Editor ef the Gazette is fixed as fate-and equally clear, that our own is not i*kely to swerve till we shall have learnt to -understand how selec tion and lender, sale and purchase* have - tn South Australia, been transmuted into synonyms. Our respective reasonings * are before the public, and the truth of * either, can therefore he easily brought to I the test. One touchstone may without j any difficulty be applied. In May, 1837, the Comnvssioîiers reserved power to sell laud in England. Let us suppose for an instant, that some fine morning in the '* leafy month ot June," an atrabilious millionaire from the land of bandanas, had quietly d...

THE WESLEYAN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 12 June 1839

THE WESLEYAN SOCIETY. EXTRAORDINARY as it may appear in the 19th cen- tury, yet it is true that the cause of the difference and dissension that took place in the Wesleyan Con- nection at home a few years ago, was the establish- ment of a Collegiate Institution, for the better quali- fication of their preachers. In the course of the heart-burnings that these differences created, the preachers were compelled to exercise a control     which had not been previously required, and was not believed to belong to them. The College, how ever has been established and found to be essentially beneficial, insomuch, than its most influential oppo nents have changed their sentiments and become its most liberal supporters. The Society having reached its hundredth year a sort of centenary jubilee had been proposed, and highly approved of, which has produced a spirit of excitement, and has occasioned a wonderful re-action throughout the Society. Centenary public meetings were...

THE LIFE AND ADVEXTU-RES OF TOBÏ MCXBLE. BY TIMOTHY SHORT.-CHAP. II. This Chapter is intended tv follow Chapter 1. Ix tlie preceding chapter, I promised to intro duce Mr. and Mrs. Trundle to the reader. Is is unfortunate for the latter multitudinous per sonage, that trials, executions, and a few trifling occurrences of that kind, have deferted the pleasure of the introduction. We hope that in future the affairs of the colony will late care not to interfere with the all-important affairs of Toby Trundle.

BY the Sir Charles Forbes we have re- ceived English papers to the 9th January. A considerable portion of their columns is occupied with details of a hurricane almost without parallel in England. It had oc- curred so recently, namely, on the 6th and 7th of January, that we fear the worst tidings have yet to reach us. The following are among the calamities narrated in the columns before us : - The New York packets Pensylvania and St. Andrew were total wrecks, as also was the British ship Lockwood, bound for New York. We fear great loss of life occurred among the passengers and crews of these vessels. When the accounts came away, endeavours had been made to save the sur- vivors, and with partial success. The scene is described as having been most heart-rend- ing. Every part of the English coast was strewd w...
