To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 April 1839

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. SIR—A party deputed by the proprietors of the special survey at Port Lincoln arrived at Boston Bay, on Tuesday, the 19th March last. They were accompanied by B.P. Winter, Esq, who was engaged as surveyor to lay out the proposed town, &c. You are aware that there are two entrances into the harbour, at each end of Boston Island, which completely flanks and protects the Bay. The northern entrance is about 2½ miles wide, without a single rock or other obstruction, and is of sufficient depth to admit vessels of any burthen. The southern entrance is not so wide nor so free from obstruction, there being two small islands of granite in the way, yet sufficiently visible to be easily avoided, and leaving the passage wide enough for a vessel of any size to work in. The schooner Abeona, with the gentlemen of the depu- tation entered by the northern channel, and the Parier by the southern. After the surveyor and   his party land...

PRICE OF WASTE LANDS IN THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 April 1839

PRICE OF WASTE LANDS IN THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. Most of our readers are aware that directions have recently been given to the Governors of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land to raise the price of the unappropriated public land from five shillings per acre to twelve shillings, the minimum rate at which the Co- lonization Commissioners are authorised to sell the land of South Australia. It was to be expected that some outcry would be occasioned by the measure; but in personal ignorance of   the peculiar position of the penal settlements, it is impossible for us to pronounce any positive opinion on the prudence or justice of the step, although it does by no means appear to warrant the strong and almost treasonable language by which it is characterised. One   thing strikes us as sufficiently clear, that the fact of fixing the price of land in the other Australian colonies at the minimum rate at   which it can be sold in this province, implies t...

COMMUNICATION WITH ENGLAND BY STEAM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 April 1839

COMMUNICATION WITH ENGLAND BY STEAM. The almost unhoped for, but complete suc- cess of the steam communication across the Atlantic, has so effectually aroused the enter- prise of England, that its extension to the remotest corners of the earth is not merely spoken of as possible, but is in actual course of practical application. The moral and political effect of placing these provinces within fifty days of home instead of four mouths, cannot be underrated. Immigration to this splendid con-     tinent will now be disarmed of its most painful feature, and the heart-sinking feeling that on leaving England we leave it forever, will be in a great measure dispelled. "Hammal tudbly"—       "We return no more !"— need not henceforth       be sung. We shall not fail to keep our readers advised of the progress of this most important   enterprise. In the meantime the following i...

CORONER'S INQUESTS. ?— DETERMINED SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 April 1839

CORONER'S INQUESTS. — DETERMINED SUICIDE. Yours faithfully, K. M'IVER. On Monday last, an inquest was held before George Stevenson, Esq., Coroner for the Pro-   vince, on the body of Mr. Kenneth MacIver, who, on Sunday last, was found shot through the heart in a room of Mr. Duncan's, Caroline-place, Rundle- street. The Jury being sworn proceeded, along with the Coroner, to view the body. It was found lying on a bed as if he had been asleep, with a pistol lying at his right hand, the bullet of which had evidently penetrated his heart. Mr. William Wyatt, surgeon, was then called in and sworn—I was called yesterday between one and two o'clock to the house where deceased now lies, and found the body in the position which the Jury has just witnessed. Upon examining it I found   a wound near, or rather below, the left breast; evi- dently produced by a bullet discharged from a pistol, which was lying near the right hand of de- ceased. The wound was directly in the...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1839. CAPTAIN STURT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 April 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1839. CAPTAIN STURT. We should have thought if any individual might have escaped the abuse of the principle- mongers, Captain Sturt would have been the man. It is true that as "an officer and a   gentleman," the innate republican dislike to   either of these characters might have operated so as to withhold praise, or to countenance mis- representation, when either were practicable; but the fact that to Captain Sturt this province owes a heavy debt of gratitude we imagined would have at least procured for him a very different welcome to what may be emphatically termed "his own land" than that he has re-   ceived from our contemporary of the Southern Australian. It is however as fortunate for   the reputation of the province as it must be consolatory to Captain Sturt, that our con- temporary in no shape represents the feelings or speaks the sentiments of a single respect- able colonist, or in...

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION—CHURCH BUILDING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 6 April 1839

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION -CHURCH BUILDING SOCIETY.   The anxiety evinced by the colonists gene- rally to provide for the religious instruction     of the emigrants and the education of their children, is perhaps of all others the most   cheering indication of the social condition of our fair province ; and it is no less gratifying to find that the demand for that instruction not   only keeps pace with the increased population, but considerably exceeds the proportion hither- to observed. The church, little more than a year built, has already been extended to nearly double its original size ; and is still insufficient to accommodate the public. The necessity for additional room is daily becoming more urgent ; and our readers will observe that a society, com - posed of members of the Church of England, having for its object to provide sufficient accom- modation and means of religions instruction -— "the erection of Churches ...

The Coroner summed up, and the Jury having consulted, returned a verdict of "Filo de se."   On the same day an inquest was held before Mr. Stevenson on the body of a man which was found lying above high-water mark, on the sea- shore, about half way between the flag staff at Glenelg, and Holdfast Bay. The body was found to be that of a sailor of the name of Harding, belong-   ing to the Buckinghamshire, who, along with the surgeon, and another seaman belonging to the same ship, were drowned a day or two before, in the boat in which they were upsetting. The Jury   returned a verdict of "Found drowned."

THE "PRINCIPLES OF THE COLONY" ONCE MORE.?—OFFICIAL APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 13 April 1839

THE "PRINCIPLES OF THE CO- LONY" ONCE MORE.— OFFICIAL APPOINTMENTS. "Il rit bien qui rit dernier" is the latest classic hit of the learned Editor of the South- ern Australian at certain "ridiculous asser-   tions of the Gazette" in reference to the ap- pointments of the present Surveyor-general and Emigration Agent, both of which, we are told, having been made by the Crown, are "aggressions on the rights of the Colonisation   Commissioners — plain usurpations of their undoubted privileges. " Who may " laugh the last," it is not for us to say; but we may remind our young brother of the Southern Australian, in return for his correct French, of an adage he had better recollect in future and take our advice " never to holla till he is out of the wood." The disinterested character of this recommendation, he shall presently discover. The commentator on the powers of the Com- missioners contends that by act they are autho- rised to appoint a Surveyor-general; and ...
