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

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN—A subscriber begs to be in-   formed, through the medium of your intelligent Gazette, whether or not a lease or grant of land for seven years, drawn by any other than an attorney, it valid ? [A lease in proper form does not require thy assistance of an attorney; but it is always safe to employ those who are conversant with legal   forms.— Editors of Gazette.]

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

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Your reader, X. Y. GENTLEMEN —Being a newly-arrived elderly emigrant, allow me to congratulate my fellow emigrants on one most cheering feature in the management and governing of this colony. I have cast my eye carefully over the two newspapers which watch over, criticise, and remark on what is going on, and I perceive with delight a steady, systematic, and dignified mode of government which ensures to us all safety, protection, and assistance, free from all fears of the snarling and visionary theorists who would set us at variance upon matters perfectly irrelevant to our practical exertions. May our prosperity not be darkened by a shadow of the excitement existing at Sydney on the subject of the aborigines as mentioned in one of your former numbers.

FUNERAL OF A NATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

FUNERAL OF A NATIVE. AMICUS ABORIGINEM. Adelaide, March 7, 1839. On the 20th of February the native woman Wariato, second wife of Munaitja her hus- band, died. She was one of the stoutest and most robust of her countrywomen ; her age was about thirty. As she died late in the evening the natives could do nothing at the moment but weep over her. On Friday morning, however, after having again lamented the fate of their deceased sister by loud cries and abundant tears, they wrapt her up in old cloths and dry grass, putting her arms together against her shoulders, and her legs against the abdomen, so that she retained only half her natural length. After this she was laid on a sort of bier and carried by eight or ten men in a peculiar way; first they moved round for some time on the spot where she died, then went to and fro, and turned round again in opposite directions. In doing so they frequently would stand still, and one man whisper to her, laying his mouth close to her head. When ask...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Glenelg, February 14, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. Glenelg, February 14, 1839. I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, SCRUTATOR. GENTLEMEN—A question has arisen among   purchasers of land lately, which, as the con- servators of the public good, you may perhaps deem worthy noticing—it is this: Are deeds drawn by any but legal gentlemen valid or not [All deeds properly drawn are legal. An attorney can confer no legality on deeds or writings of any kind ; but as we have noticed to another correspondent, it is safest to employ an attorney, merely because he is sup- posed to know the proper forms.— Editors of Gazette.]

SUPREME COURT. SESSION OF DELIVERY. MONDAY, MARCH 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

SUPREME COURT. SESSION OF DELIVERY. MONDAY, MARCH 4. This day having been fixed for the Sessions, His Honour the Acting, Henry Jickling, Esq, took his seat at eleven o'clock, and de- livered the following address to the Grand Jury and of which E. B. Gleeson, Esq., was foreman:— Gentlemen of the Grand Jury—In addres- sing you from this seat for the second, and in all probability, for the last time, it seems suit- able to the occasion, that before I proceed to direct your attention to the more immediate subject of your labours, I should briefly advert     to the changes which have occurred in the social condition of our adopted country since called on to discharge a similar office in the month of April last. It is impossible not to be struck with the rapidity with which our infant society is advancing towards maturity. Previous to the firet meeting of the Supreme Court of this province (my authority for this position is the late Judge, Sir John Jeffcott) a di...

THE NEW SETTLEMENT AT PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

THE NEW SETTLEMENT AT PORT LINCOLN. THE excitement during the past week on the the subject of the settlement at Boston Bay in Port Lincoln, has been without parallel in the brief annals of South Australia; and it is with a feeling of honest pride we advert to the realization of the identical views which nearly two years ago were expressed by ourselves in reference to this noble harbour. It was no sooner known that an attempt on the part of the South Australian Company was about to be made to secure for itself this magnificent port than many colonists—especially those who were aware of its capabilities, and who desired its advantages to be participated in by the public, joined together and obtained a special survey of   what is considered to be the only available por- tion of Boston Bay. This was done with so much promptitude that when the Company's agent returned from his inspection of the place, he found, as in the case of Mount Barker, he had been anticipated, and Boston Bay is no...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1839. MR. MANN AND THE " STARCHAMBER." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1839. MR. MANN AND THE " STAR- CHAMBER." IT is with feelings of disgust altogether inex- pressible that we are compelled once more to revert to a subject, which, as it has already placed Mr. Mann and his party in their present unhappy position, our readers may perhaps think might now have been avoided. But the arrogant attempt of the ex-Advocate to repeat doubly refuted falsehoods, and to cover his shameful derelictions from the truth by a pettifogging effort at special pleading, force us once more to the exposition. Mr. Mann, in a letter to his printer, desires to show that " the promise of his Excellency has not been kept," and that he was perfectly justified when he stated that "the Governor wrote a letter to the counsel of Mr. Fisher, promising that he would not hold the court till after the pending actions had been tried." We think it our duty here to let Mr. Mann state the circum- stances in his own words, and we therefore take the fol...

SHIPPING COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

SHIPPING COMPANY. I am, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, G. A. [B]. [We have great pleasure in publishing the following letter, and we trust our friends of the Chamber of Commerce will take care that the subject receives the attention it merits.— Editors.] To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette, GENTLEMEN—The carrying trade from the colonies has now become of so much importance to our infant colony that the establishment of a shipping company is much to be desired; and as a proof of the probable success of such a company, I beg leave to trouble you with an account of the " Success of Shipping Com- panies in the North of England." The first company established in the port of Stockton was called the Union Shipping Com- pany. It was formed in 1822, and at its commencement the capital was small, but is now £12,000. This company has paid fifty per cent for the three years ending 1835, being on an average sixteen and a half per cent. notwithstanding the loss of a vessel which has...

COLONEL LIGHT'S LETTER AND MR. MANN'S " WILFUL AND UNPRINCIPLED" MISREPRESENTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

COLONEL LIGHT'S LETTER AND MR. MANN'S " WILFUL AND UNPRIN- CIPLED" MISREPRESENTATIONS. In our last we briefly adverted to the attempt made by our truth-loving contemporary, Mr. Mann, to exhibit the Governor in a false and odious point of view in reference to certain communications with the late Surveyor-ge- neral. We also hinted our belief that Colonel Light had already informed Mr. Mann that his representation of the subject was untrue; and that a correction of the calumny was withheld by Mr. Mann for an evident and a factious purpose. Mr. Mann has now published a letter from Colonel Light, dated 2nd March instant, in which no allusion is made to the point whether Colonel Light had instantly contra- dicted Mr. Mann's fictions, and Mr. Mann had allowed that contradiction to slumber in his pocket. But was there indeed no previous letter to the purport alluded to; or has Colonel Light only been forced to perform an act of justice to his Excellency because, as he says, " Mr. Stevenson ...

THE LICENSING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

THE LICENSING ACT. [We publish the following communication. because we think it will rather tend to dispel than to confirm the very general misconcep- tions which exist in reference to the provisions of the Licencing Act. Our correspondent does the Governor but justice in acknowledging his Excellency's anxiety for the welfare of the colony, an anxiety which we know is shared by the other members of the Council. If the matter be regarded legally so he states it to be,   in reference to the power given to police constables to enter all licenced houses without exception, the oversight—for it is nothing more—will certainly be immediately rectified. Editors.] To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. GENTLEMEN — Sincerely desirous as I am of supporting the Government of the colony in the discharge of its duties, I cannot refrain     from addressing you or the first specimen of legislation which it has exhibited. If it be true that acts once pa...

IMPORTATION OF STOCK [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 9 March 1839

IMPORTATION OF STOCK A number of vessels have discharged very large and healthy cargoes of sheep during the last week. One fine flock of 1000 ewes has just been landed in excellent condition by Mr. Anstey, who we are glad to hear has returned finally to settle amongst us. The David   Witton, recently freighted by Mr. Macfarlane for the purpose of transporting a portion of his extensive flocks from the Port Phillip dis- trict to South Australia, returned a few days ago, after a very successful trip, only one having been lost on the passage. Mr. Mac- farlane landed about 1000 ewes of a very superior description, for which he has, we believe, been offered a high figure, and he is certain to realise a good price. We hear from Van Diemen's Land that importations of sheep to our province are likely to be very ex- tensive during the present season, and with regard to cattle, in addition to what we have formerly published, the following satisfactory statement of the Port Philli...
