EMIGRANT LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 2 February 1839

EMIGRANT LABOR. WE find the following paragraph in the Sydney Monitor of December 19 :— FRAUD ON THE CROWN LAND FUND.- The Herald of Monday week states as a fact that some emigrants lately arrived were hired to proceed to South Australia, and proceeded thence accordingly   by sea. It is a capital thing for South Australia, by all the difference between the expence of a passage hence to South Australia, and one all the way from the mother country to the new colony. But it is a bad thing for New South Wales, and an unjust thing in itself. We agree with the Herald that an Act of Council should be imme-   diately passed, indicting a fine of £50 on the master of every vessel leaving this port who shall take away any emigrant whose passage to this colony was paid out of the crown land, until he has resided in this colony three years. A similar subject of complaint has existed in South Australia; and so many persons sent out to the province at the cost of the emig...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. February 1, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. February 1, 1839. I am, Gentlemen, Yours, GEO. STEVENSON. GENTLEMEN—I ought perhaps to be obliged to Mr. Mann and his party for the interest they take in my private affairs—for the gentle- manly manner in which these are from time to time exposed to the public—and for the polite notice recently bestowed on my personal ap- pearance. I regret that some old-fashioned notions I entertain on the fair mode of con- ducting political warfare prevents me returning these favors in kind; and I resist a pretty strong temptation when I determine to abide by these notions on the present occasion, and content myself with stating, in reference to my private affairs, that my " debts" have, hitherto been paid in full, and that the assertion of the assignment of my salary to any party whatever is without a shadow of foundation. The allusion made by Mr. Mann to my " cormorant" disposition, and that I was com- pelled by the Council of the day to disgorge m...

CHOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF GLENELG AND THE NEW PORT SECTION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

CHOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF GLENELG AND THE NEW PORT SECTION. IT having been finally determined by his Excellency the Resident Commissioner, in consequence, we have heard, of positive in-   structions to that effect from Adelphi Terrace. to abandon the secondary towns reserved in   the various districts, the valuable township of Glenelg was thrown open to public com- petition, and Wednesday last fixed upon to open the tenders During the few days pre- vious the Treasury and Land Office had been thronged with colonists anxious to tender for this valuable section, as well as for the al- lotment at the proposed new port, which is also reported to be most advantageously situated for traffic. On Wednesday the meeting took place at the Court-house. His Excellency the Go- vernor presided, and Messrs. Stephen and Hall officiated as Assistant Commissioners. Before the tenders were opened, Mr. David McLaren, Provincial Manager of the South Australian Company, made his a...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

To the Editors of t he South Australian Gazette. I have the honor to remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, J. E. BRIGHT. GENTLEMEN-I beg to notice in your paper the state in which the water is frequently sup-   plied to the town we have been lately drinking a muddy fluid, scented, and often containing numerous insects. During the last two months the water has been supplied, more or less, with those noxious admixtures; and during that time, the cases of diarrhoea and dysentery have been very numerous, very severe, and of long continuance. The complaints among infants have also been very frequent, in very many instances to be traced to the use of bad water. In this climate, the state of the water is of serious moment, and should excite the attention of Government. If we should be visited with an epidemic, the remedial power of medicine might be much affected by the constant im- bibition of a source of great irritation, and two-thirds of a town might be swept away befo...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. " Trivial fond records." —SHAKSPEARE. PREJUDICE THE SPIDER OF THE MIND — Of prejudice it has been truly said, that it has the singular ability of accommodating itself to all the possible varieties of the human mind. Some passions and vices are but thinly scattered among mankind, and hind only here and there a fitness for reception. But prejudice, like the spider, makes every where its home ; it has neither taste nor choice of place, and all that it requires is room. There is scarcely a situation, except fire and water, in which a spider will not live. So, let the mind be as naked as the walls of an empty and forsaken tenement, gloomy as a dungeon, or ornamented with the richest abilities of thinking; let it be hot, cold, dark or light, lonely or in- habited, still prejudice, if undisturbed, will fill it with cobwebs, and live, like the spider, where there seems nothing to live on. If the one pre- pares her food by poisoning it according to her pala...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, Jan 22, 1839 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, Jan 22, 1839 I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, IN PATRIAM POPULUMQUE.   GENTLEMEN— There is an old advice—   "When the steed is stolen, lock the stable door; and it would almost appear as if my present suggestion was according to that sage counsel. The late unhappy scene of conflagration calls aloud for the establishment of insurance com- panies, and the present Banks might perhaps render a benefit by offering the means of in- surance ; it would profit them and be of avail to the public. The rates of insurance might do away with a great many buildings—and a style of building   which endangers the town and the property of the owner. I hope some kind of phoenix may arise from the ashes.-

MELBOURNE AND ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

MELBOURNE AND ADELAIDE. WE find in the Cornwall Chronicle of 12th January, extracted from the Port Phillip Gazette of 29th December, an article professed to be written by " A Visitor." and giving an                 account of Melbourne. The comparisons between that place and Adelaide may amuse some of our readers, but the greater portion of them, we think, will regret that attempts are made to excite a spirit of jealousy between places where none ought to exist, and where, certainly, there can be no rivalry. If we are correctly informed, Melbourne, as the chief town of the fine district of Port Phillip, is rising with great rapidity into importance; and it is clear that every step in its progress must eventually be favorable to this colony, as bringing a cheap market nearer to our doors, and adding to the general wealth and civi- lization of the country. Our Melbourne friends, the...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, January 23, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, January 23, 1839.   I remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, ANTI-FETTERS. GENTLEMEN—I would enquire from you to whom are we indebted for the importation of the Hill Coolies from Hindostan to this province ?—why did the Government permit such importation ?—and what has now become of those expatriated unfortunates ? I happen to be aware that a communication was made to Lord Brougham of their being sent here, so that our province will soon incur the reproaches of the ablest advocate against slavery in the House of Lords. These circumstances should have been investigated publicly on their being landed here, and the importation strongly re- monstrated against, in order that we might not cast a slur on the early fame of the freest of the free. As it is, the error has been committed, and " let the gailed jade wince."-

CAUTION TO OWNERS OF LAND IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA RESIDING IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

CAUTION TO OWNERS OF LAND IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA RESIDING IN ENGLAND. WE have so frequently heard of tricks at-   tempted to be played on the proprietors of land residing in England by certain parties and their agents, that we take blame to our- selves for not sooner cautioning the unwary on the subject. It is not very long ago since a gentleman in London received a letter from his friend in Adelaide, offering him what he thought a very handsome sum for certain town acres, stating at the same time some dis- couraging circumstances attendant upon their location, proving thereby the liberality of the offerer. While the fortunate holder of the town acres, however, was on the eve of in- diting a response agreeing to the sale, a friend who also held town lots happened to call, and   the conversation turned, naturally enough, on     the rise of the value of land in Adelaide. The caller produced a letter from a colonial officer, who is also a...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1839. THE POLITICAL CONDITION OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1839. THE POLITICAL CONDITION OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SOME exceedingly grave persons, it is said, were at one period extant, who believed that the commencement of the Colonial Millenium depended on the establishment of South Aus- tralia, and that the Golden Age, with its acorns and shepherdesses, was to be revived on the banks of the Murray or the happy shores of Gulf St. Vincent. It was probably ex- pected too, by gentlemen of the same tem- perament, that in addition to its achievements in the science of colonization, the " Royal Province" would "witch the world" by exhibition of that wonderful harmony which we have the authoiity of many novelists for as- serting is the peculiar characteristic of Arcadia. These pleasant dreams have long ago been dispelled, and the dreamers them- selves, we suspect, if ever they really indulged in such anticipations, knew what little of human nature, and a great deal less of the discordant materials of which ...

CORONER'S INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

CORONER'S INQUEST. AN Inquest was held on Thursday, January 21st, at the Queen's Arms Tavern, Wright-street, on view of the body of a man unknown, before George Stevenson. Esq., coroner for the province, and a jury. The following witnesses were examined:—   Mr. Woodford, surgeon—l have in company with Mr. Wyatt examined the body now on view before the jury; and from the advanced state of putrefaction and decomposition in which it is. I cannot arrive at any very certain conclusion as to the immediate cause of death. From all appear- ances there has been a deep incised wound in the throat, dividing both trachea and oesophagus. The large vessels of importance are also divided. The wound was inflicted apparently by some sharp   instrument. From the form of the skull and the colour of the hair, there was no question of the body being that of a European. In answer to a question by the coroner, the witness stated that in ordinary cases of suicide the wound would n...

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 February 1839

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. SHIPS FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA.—At the date of the latest advices the Buckinghamshire, an East Indiaman of the first class, 1400 tons, was on the berth. She will bring out between 5 and 600 emigrants. The Planter and Swan were also laid on. The     Portina left about a fortnight before the Bardaster (arrived), and the Katherine Stewart Forbes was   to sail in a few days after the Bardaster. The City of Adelaide was in dock undergoing extensive repairs. We regret to learn that serious apprehensions are entertained for the safety of the Children brig, which left Lauuceston for Port Adelaide on the 22nd December last, and has not since been heard of. She had 1200 sheep on board. Mr. Samuel Bryan, the owner of the cargo, and several pas- sengers, were also in the ill-fated vessel.
