To the Editor the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

To the Editor the South Australian Gazette. I am your obedient Servant. Y. B. H. Adelaide, 21st August. I am, Sir, &c. ANOTHER COLONIST. SIR,—A correspondent of yours some time since expressed a wish that you would favor the public with a publication in the Gazette of the selection of the preliminary town lands. You have hitherto   taken no notice of that letter, so that I and others, who concur in that wish, have no means of know- ing whether it is your intention to comply with it. But I address you on other grounds. I conceive that the public have a right to expect it, as the papers issued by the Commissioners stated that all purchases of land should be published in the Gazette; and besides, although the grants of town lands are now about to be issued, we are still without any document to enable us to dispose of a "preliminary acre, or show our title to the land   on which we are expending our capital. [Perhaps the Resident Commissioner thinks, wi...

(No. 3.) STATEMENT OF MR. GOUGER. SIR, Adelaide, August 18,1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

(No. 3.) STATEMENT OF MR. GOUGER. SIR, Adelaide, August 18,1837. I have the honour to be, SIR, Your Excellency's most obedient Servant, ROBERT GOUGER To His Excellence the Governor, I remain, My Dear Sir, Your's very truly, JOHN MORPHETT. The Honorable Robert Gouger. I have the honor to enclose for your Excel- lency's perusal, a letter from Mr. Morphett, rela- tive to the affray between Mr. Gilles and myself, which occurred on the 16th instant, in order that your Excellency may be enabled, by reading the account of a disinterested bystander, along with my own statement, rightly to appreciate the whole affair. I had determined to treat the matter with pro- found contempt, and I was the more deeply con- vinced that this was the course I ought to pursue, by the recollection of an opinion once expressed in Council, that it was impossible to make Mr. Gilles a Magistrate, in consequence of the very disgusting and opprobrious language he used on the day your Excellency arrived in the Provi...

(No. 5.) STATEMENT OF MR. GILLES. Sir, Adelaide, 16th August, 1837. OSMOND GILLES. His Excellency Governor Hindmarsh. In compliance with your Excellency's com-   mands, intimated in your Private Secretary's let-   ter to me of this date, just received, I have the honor to lay before your Excellency the following narrative of the ruffian-like attack made upon my person by Mr. Gouger and his accomplices in the public streets of Adelaide this morning. I ought, in the first instance, to recal to your Excellency's recollection the gross and unprovoked insult offered to me by Mr. Gouger in your pre- sence, said in the presence of his clerk, in the Colonial Secretary's public office. Immediately afterwards I requested Mr. Mann, the Advocate General, to demand that Mr.Gouger should apologise in the presence of your Excel- lency for that insult; and Mr. Mann informed me in the course of a day or two that Mr. Gouger had admitted his error, and promised to make the ap...

To C[?]MOND GILLES, Esq. Colonial Treasurer. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

To OSMOND GILLES, Esq. Colonial Treasurer. SIR.—To a man of extensive experience and business habits like yourself, regularity in all matters connected with public monies and accounts is essential, where that does not exist, in ninety             nine cases out of a hundred, there is something wrong. I trust you have received a full account of the Public Stores sent out by the Commis- sioners, and that all the monies arising from their sale, have been paid into your hands as the Trea- surer of that body? I ask you publicly this ques-   tion, because I have heard that no such account has been rendered, and that the monies so arising have not been paid into your hands; but have been expended by the Storekeeper, under the orders of the Resident Commisioner. It is my belief that no legal receipt for money,   the proceeds of Stores sold by the Storekeeper, can be given but by the Treas...

THE MARKETS. Adelaide, September 15th, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

THE MARKETS. Adelaide, September 15th, 1837. The recent arrivals of several vessels from the sister colonies have supplied our limited market with an abundance of every description of goods, and in consequence prices are lower, and some         articles can only be quoted nominally. The de- mand is very limited; the wholesale buyers are   shy and afraid of overstocking themselves at this season ; and Storekeepers only buy from hand to   mouth. Our quotations will show the wholesale value of the different articles, and it will be ob- served that our infant colony cannot be said to suffer severely under the pressure of exorbitant prices. Adelaide:—Printed and Published by the Pro- prietors, Thomas and Co., at the   Printing Office, Hindley Street, where Orders   and Advertisements, and all Communications to the Editor, will be received. Price, per annum, (52 numbers) £1 6s. if calle...

SUSPENSION OF MR. BROWN, AS EMIGRATION AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

SUSPENSION OF MR. BROWN, AS EMIGRATION AGENT. JUST before going to press, we received from the Colonial Secretary's office, the official documents in reference to the suspension from his office, of Mr. JOHN BROWN Emigration Agent. They will be published at length in the next Gazette, and in the mean time we   have only room for a brief notice of the facts which led to a measure — not only richly deserved by the individual whom it affects —but in itself most proper and legitimate under the circumstances of the case. An Emigrant named Trollope, died in the public hospital last week in a state of destitu- tion. On the fact being reported to the Go- vernor, His Excellency directed the Colonial Secretary to intimate the occurrence to Mr. Brown, Emigration Agent, and desire the ne- cessary steps for the decent interment of the poor man might be taken. Mr. Brown decli- ned interfering, not considering it within the scope of his duty. His Excellency differed from Mr. Brown, and...

GOUGER'S DEFENCE OF CAPT. DUFF. September 1st, 1837. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

GOUGER'S DEFENCE OF CAPT. DUFF. September 1st, 1837. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. SIR—I am reluctantly compelled to notice the let- ter in your last number, pretending to be explanatory of Captain Duff's proceedings at Kangaroo Island, signed "Robert Gouger." Why Mr. Gouger         should take upon himself to defend Captain Duff, I know not. I suppose Mr. Gouger had reasons for not daring to refuse Captain Duff's orders. My brother "wanderers" were unaware, as well as myself, of the dangers and difficulties we had to encounter, and I unhesitatingly assert that Captain Duff had no right whatever to have al- lowed us to land, much less to have treated us with the cool inhumanity he did after our safe ar- rival; nor ought Mr. Robert Gouger to have been   the first to urge such a mad-headed project, and the first to decline going. Such was the fact. What does Mr. Gouger mean by sayin...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, SEPTEBER 18, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, SEPTEBER 16, 1837. THE detail of the affair which occupies so large a portion of the Gazette, will be perused with very painful feelings by every well-wisher to our flourishing Colony. Fortunately for us all, the public weal cannot, in any degree, be affected by the actions of men who, by some strange mishap, have been thrust into situations, for which they are most eminently unfit; while the prompt punishment which has been inflicted upon one of the principal offenders— the prin-   cipal offender, in our estimation, not having yet received his deserts—has satisfied every respectable person in the Colony, that the law will be vindicated, and that no flagrant outrage on the decencies of society can be offered with impunity by any individual, be his station what it may. A summary of the matter which led to the suspension of Mr. Robert Gouger from his office as Colonial Secretary, may be permitted here for the benefit of those who have not ...

INVESTIGATION. Adelaide, August 18, 1837. Present-George Stevenson, Thomas Bewes Strangways, David Maclaren, Esquires, Jus- tices of Peace. David Maclaren, Esq. was requested to act as Chairman, and Mr. Stevenson was requested to take down the minutes of evidence. The letter from His Excellency the Governor, dated 18th August, to the magistrates above- named, was read and put in and numbered six. The documents accompanying that letter were also put in and numbered from one to five inclu- sive. The chairman enquired of the parties present, Mr. Gouger the Colonial Secretary, and Mr.   Gilles the Colonial Treasurer, if they had any thing to add to, or alter in, the written statements sent in by them respectively. Mr. Gouger said that he could add a great deal   to his written statement. He could fill it with the very words used by Mr. Gilles to Mr. Gou- ger, both at the time of making the apology spo- ken of in that letter, and during the rencontre on Wednesda...

MR. MANN'S STATEMENT. MORP[?] STREET. ADELAIDE, The, 19th August, 1837 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 16 September 1837

MR. MANN'S STATEMENT. MORPHETT STREET, ADELAIDE, The 19th August, 1837. The following statement was in part written when your Excellency yesterday, at Government House, requested me to forward my narrative of the facts connected with the late unfortunate affray. I was, on my return home, so worn out with fatigue, that I was compelled to lie down, before I could proceed with it; and it was not finally   completed till past 12 o'clock last night. Your Excellency will find that it is addressed to the Colonial Secretary. The reason which may be given for this is, that I had commenced the letter to Mr. Gouger previous to my attendance at Government House; and my anxiety to save time led me rather to continue the old, than to commence a fresh narrative. Adelaide, late 19th day of August, 1837. MY DEAR GOUGER.   In compliance with your request, I forward a statement of the facts connected with the late   affray, and which will, I trust, place the affair in &am...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1837. TO OUR READERS. In assuming the duties devolving upon us, the EDITORS of the South Australian Gazette can make no other profession than one which they feel must be satisfactory to every indepen- dant man in the Colony, namely, that of fol- lowing the course of policy traced out to them by their predecessor, which they now repeat in     his own words as they appeared in this journal of the 12th August last:—"We continue dog-       gedly in our resolution to set our face against   all systems and degrees of jobbery, against putting individuals, under any disguise, or re- cording flummery speeches and trashy compli- ments: we are as determined as ever to expose     humbug wherever we find it—to keep a sharp     look out after the doings of every "Jack In     office"—to give the Colo...

THE SURVEY [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

THE SURVEY We learn that there is reason to hope the Surveyors will be able to conclude the survey of the preliminary country sections in less than six months from this period. The supposition, therefore, a correspondent makes regar- ding the time which the landowners must   still wait is incorrect —a circumstance he will not be the last to regret. Certainly we have not cause to complain of the exertions of the little band of Surveyors, who have laboured incessantly in their vocation, and we think it probable that Colonel Light's representation of the deficiency of strength in his department, may have reached England in time to ensure a reinforcement by the vessels daily expected. At all events it is satisfactory to know that the prospect of obtaining possession of the country       sections is much nearer than is generally anti- cipated. We are happy to announce the arrival of His Honor the Judge, from Van Diemen's Land. His Honor...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 14 October 1837

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. We regret we have not found it possible to make room for a report of the speeches at the Meeting of Emigrants on the 18th ult. The resolutions, address to His Excellency, and the reply, are inserted. The letter of the Colonial Trearurer, a Sufferer, and Alice     Gray in our next. It is but fair to Mr. Fisher, the Resident Commissioner, to say, that he was NOT the person alluded to in the letter of Another Colonist, published in our last. The individual, we understand,   sas Mr. E. Stephens, one of the employe's of the South Australian Company, who seems to think he can serve the intersts of his masters by such conduct. We do nnot agree with Questor; nor is the affair between Messrs. Mann and Jickling yet ripe for publication. It is true Mr. Jickling has resigned his office as Clerk to the Magistrates, but it is a mistake to suppose that resignation the consequence of a quarrel between these gentlemen. A Petester of H...
