THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY. APRIL 20, 1839. COMMUNICATION WITH THE INTERIOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 April 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1839. COMMUNICATION WITH THE INTERIOR. THE want of main or direct lines of com- munication between the country districts and the capital has been for some time rather seriously felt, and as the settlement of the interior proceeds, the call for easy and practi- cable roads must necessarily become more urgent. A memorial on this subject has re- cently been presented to the Governor, signed by a great portion of the colonists who are in- terested in the Mount Barker and Para River districts. Of this document and of his Ex- cellency's reply we have been favoured with copies, which we now submit to our readers as proofs, not merely of the sound practical views our leading settlers take on a subject of all others the most essential to civilized colo- nization, but of our excellent Governor's readiness to meet their views and to promote   by every possible means the important object in question. Nor is his Excellency content GEORGE GA...

THE DROUGHT. The drought still continues and the colonists [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 April 1839

THE DROUGHT. "The drought still continues and the colonists have before them every prospect of a famine or something very closely approximating to it. From     all parts of the country we have the same disheart- ening accounts. In most places the crops have en-   tirely failed; in some few, about half a crop has been realised. In all quarters the sides of the   road are said to be literally strewed with the car-   cases of bullocks, which have perished for want of sustenance. Under such circumstances it is, we think, worthy the serious consideration of Government, whether another day of fasting should not be set apart, to allow the people addi- tional opportunity to humiliate themselves before the Lord in acknowledgement of our sins and to   pray that the curse which threatens to overwhelm     the land may be averted."— Sydney Gazette.   Every thing we hear agrees wit...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 April 1839

TO CORRESPONDENTS. Humanitas is right, but we should desire an op- portunity of honestly reviewing past errors to be given   to every man; and though the Colonial Surgeon has had much to answer for, it is to be hoped the emigrants will henceforth reap the benefits of his being   doubly paid for the performance of his duties. We decline, therefore, to publish his letter—for the present     at least. It is impossible to notice the matter Quiz refers to.

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 April 1839

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. I am Sir, Your obedient servant, F. R. LEES. WE have been favored by Captain Lees, of the Nereus, with the following interesting notes of his recent trip to the westward along the shores of the hitherto almost unknown "Great   Australian Bight" which we publish with that sincere pleasure which new information   on the position and capabilities of our Province always affords us. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Sir, —Thinking that a short account of our late voyage in the Nereus, may not be unin- teresting to the public, I have sent you a few remarks, which you are at liberty, if you think proper, to publish. We sailed from Holdfast Bay on Tuesday the 5th ult. with a strong southerly wind, which continued for two or three days, and greatly impeded our progress; however, after sundry tacking, reeling, &c. we arrived safe in   Coffin's Bay on Sunday, March 11, in compa- ny with the Lord Sidmouth whaler,...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATES COURT. APRIL, 17, 1839 MR. EDWARD JOHN EYRE, who has recently ar- rived overland from Sydney with cattle and sheep appeared on summons to answer the com- plaint of Andrew Berry, an American man of color, for the nonpayment of wages amounting to £14, claimed by the plaintiff for services rendered   during the journey. Witnesses were called to prove the fidelity of plaintiff's services until 15th January, when he was speared by the aborigines; that for two or three weeks he was conveyed through the interior on one of the defendant's drays, but on recovering in some measure his   strength, that he resumed his employment as one of the shepherds, in which service he remained until the arrival of the party in this colony last month. The defendant set up as a plea that   plaintiff been guilty of misconduct by neglect of duty, and therefore was not entitled to any wages ; from the evidence produced the Court decided in favor of the...

INFORMATION TO INTENDING EMIGRANTS. To The Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 April 1839

INFORMATION TO INTENDING EMIGRANTS. To The Editors of the South Australian Gazette. I am &c, AN OLD SETTLER. GENTLEMAN - The questions published in the last Gazette I shall endeavour to answer as fairly and impartially as in my power, ar- ranging them, if you please, in their natural order according to the subject.   1. What is the general nature of the climate —     the summer heat ? the winter cold?     2. Have you storms frequently or occasionally, of wind, rain, thunder, and lightning ? or are these less frequent than in this country? Is the cli-     mate variable, or steady and not subject to much fluctuation ? The climate is as different from that of Glasgow as possible, although when the rains do come, in May, June, July, August, and September, there is no mistake about them.   In winter the thermometer is seldom or never below 55 (temperate). In summer it ranges fr...

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 20 April 1839

To the Editors of the South Australian Gazette. I remain Gentlemen, Yours sincerly JOH MENGE, Klemzig, three miles from North Adelaide. GENTLEMEN — I have seen with great pleasure the land and pasturage between Mount Lofty, Mount Barker, and Onkapa- ringa, which I visited in May last year al- ready occupied by the colonists, and that they   did not shun the hills on the way. There are yet remaining between Mount Terrible and the plains of the Lake Alexandrina very fine valleys and meadows abounding in fresh water and excellent pasturage, where I did not find any stations for cattle or sheep, but which will easily be found out for the herds of cattle continually arriving overland. In the north I followed up the rivers Gawler and Para to their sources, and crossed the hills there to the plains of the Murray. I found several chains of ponds with good pasturage on the high land running south-east; the water is fresh and good till it reaches the low plains, where the ponds d...

FRESH ARRIVALS OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 27 April 1839

FRESH ARRIVALS OVERLAND FROM NEW SOUTH WALLS. SINCE our last we have had the pleasure to wel- come on their return overland from New South Wales, Messrs. Macleod and Macpherson, by the route of the Murray; and Mr. Bonney, the same enterprising colonist who with Mr. Hawdon had the merit first to accomplish the journey with stock overland to South Austra- lia. Mr. Bonney has opened up a new, and as far as we can at present judge, the best and most direct route from the settled districts of New South Wales to Adelaide. We are promised in time for our next, a full account of the journey of the former gentlemen, and we have the pleasure to publish in our present number the following hasty sketch of the ex-   pedition Mr. Bonney has just concluded.— NEW ROUTE OVERLAND.

THE COLONIAL REGISTER SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1839. THE NATIVES. WE lament exceedingly to state that an out- rage was committed on Sunday last by three natives on the person of a shepherd of Mr. Gilles's, and which, so far as our information goes, appears to have been an unprovoked and   most deliberate attempt at murder. As the consequences that have already resulted from this affair are exceedingly serious, and as the relations hitherto existing between the settlers     and the native population may thereby be still   further affected, we consider it our duty to lay before the public the actual facts as these appear from the official documents before us.     On Monday morning last Mr. Stuart,   Inspector of Police, made the following report       to the Government :— Monday morning, April 22, 1839.       Inspector Stua...

MORE SPECIAL SURVEYS. THE recent discovery of still finer tracts of country towards the held of the Gulf, has led to the natural result. Two special surveys of 15,000 acres each were taken yesterday by Mr Flaxman, acting it is said on behalf of parties   in England. We are glad to understand from   the reports of individuals who have explored   still farther, that every hour's progress north-     wards opens up still more splendid tracts; and all accounts agree that there is abundant room for a few hundred more surveys of the same     value between Adelaide and Port Lincoln.
