THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1839. THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 May 1839

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1839. THE NATIVES. IT is this week our painful duty to record the murder in cold blood of no less than four white men, three of them shepherds in charge of flocks at some miles distant from Adelaide. Mr. Gilles's shepherd, Duffield, the particulars of whose treatment we gave in our last, died in great agony on Saturday. An inquest was held on the body on Monday, when, after a careful examination of the facts already before the public, the Jury returned a verdict of "Wilful Murder against three native blacks   unknown." On the same day, intelligence was received from the Superintendent of Police, who was then in pursuit of the supposed criminals, that a shepherd of Mr. Hallett's had been murdered by the natives near that gentle- man's station at the Para River, and that the body of another man named Barker, in the employment of Mr. Kerville, also supposed to have been murdered by them, had been found in a dreadfully mutilated state...

PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 May 1839

PORT LINCOLN. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, CHARLES SMITH. THE brig Dorset which arrived from Port Lincoln on Tuesday, brings most favorable accounts of the progress of that im- portant harbour. The following letter from Mr. Smith, one of the most extensive proprie- tors, conveys the latest and most authentic intelligence:— To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide., May 3, 1839 Sir— After the very excellent letter of Mr. Dutton which appeared in your columns of the 20th ultimo, it may perhaps be thought un- necessary to say anything more about the   infant settlement at Port Lincoln ; but I trust   a few words from me will not be thought alto-   gether without interest.   To the information given by that gentleman     I can add nothing as regards the land in the   interior—no other exploring party having gone   overland. To boast of the advantages of the noble h...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette April 30, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 May 1839

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette April 30, 1839. I remain, Sir, "THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD." SIR — Events of a few weeks often arouse ideas which may not but for them have been formed. In our relations with our sable brethren we have appeared to want a system to guide our com- munications—it would be well to supply the omission, and I offer my mite of suggestions:—   We are naturally led to reflect on the records of the intercourse with the aboriginals of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land; they in- form us of many plans well tried yet abortive. The reason of their failure may not be clearly made out, yet the lapse of time occurring during the trial should point them out to us us shoals to be avoided. The attempts at civilising savage natures have always appeared to succeed best where they have been commenced by introducing a system of barter. I regret after all our experience (and that of the learned of our settlement, arising from that dif- fusion of kno...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 May 1839

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. CONVICTIONS UNDER THE NEW LICENSING ACT— On Friday, the 12th instant, a man named George Pfenffer was charged by Mr. Ashton, Governor of the Gaol, before H.R. Wigley, Esq., Resident Magistrate, with taking spirits to prisoners confined in the gaol. John Williams, a turnkey, stated that he caught the prisoner   giving a bottle containing brandy over the fence at the back of the gaol to a man confined named Prophet; and as he had received orders from Mr. Ashton to take any person into custody found bringing spirits to prisoners in the gaol, he de- tained him accordingly. Mr. Ashton told the Magistrate that he had stuck a notice up on the outside of the gaol cautioning persons against   bringing spirits to prisoners, and which the prisoner must have seen, and, therefore, went to the back of the gaol, thinking the officers would not see him. Mr. Ashton said he was determined to put a stop to spirits being brought to the gaol. The Magistrate, aft...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 4 May 1839

EXTRACTS. PRESENTS TO ROYALTY.—The diamond neck- lace presented to the Queen by Reschid Pasha, on behalf of the Sultan, contains some of the finest diamonds that have been seen in this country. The value is estimated at above 5,000/. Her Ma- jesty thanked the Ambassador in French, and gracefully placed the necklace on her beautiful neck. The Duchess of Kent's necklace is also very fine, but the diamonds are smaller than those in the Queen's. Her Majesty has received this week a Cadeau from the Queen of Belgium, con- taining one dozen pairs of velvet slippers, elegantly embroidered under the direction of the Queen herself, by a first-rate artiste at Brussels.   New Plan for Propagating Apple Trees.— A new plan for increasing plantations of apple trees, has lately been carried into extensive prac- tice by the horticulturists of Bohemia. Neither seed nor grafting is required. The process is to   take shoots from the choicest sorts, insert them   e...

THE ABORIGINES?—PUBLIC MEETING [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 May 1839

THE ABORIGINES—PUBLIC MEETING THE patent safety valve of all popular excite- ment—the grand breathing pipe of the body politic—was put in requisition on Tuesday last. On that day a PUBLIC MEETING was convened by the Sheriff, on the demand of a large body of the most respectable inhabitants of Adelaide, for the purpose of taking into con- sideration the present relations of the Colonists with the Aborigines, with a view to adopt measures calculated to afford that protection to all classes of the community to which they are entitled, and to determine on such means as shall restore and perpetuate the friendly in- tercourse which has hitherto subsisted between the settlers and the natives. The proceedings of this assemblage our readers will find reported at some length in another part of the Gazette. The main feature of the meeting was the condemnation of the proceedings of Mr. Wyatt, the present Protector of the Aborigines.   We confess that it appears to us that it would ...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 May 1839

PUBLIC MEETING. THE Meeting called by the Sheriff on the requi- sition published in the last Gazette, took place on Tuesday. It was numerously and most re- spectably attended. C.B. NEWENHAM, Esq, the Sheriff, was called to the chair, on the motion of Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. J. B. Hack. The Chairman then read the requisition, and remarked that it was desirable that gentlemen should confine themselves strictly to the points of discussion. Mr. J B. Hack briefly addressed the meeting, and after alluding to the forbearance of the colo-   nists and the benevolent feeling which generally existed towards the natives, congratulated the meeting that the colonists had not been the ag- gressors, and was convinced that all were disposed   to promote the continuance of mutual good feel- ing to the utmost of their power, be moved the first relolution.

DROUGHT IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 May 1839

DROUGHT IN NEW SOUTH WALES. WE subjoin a few extracts from the Sydney papers, just received via Van Diemen's Land, in reference to the severe drought with which, for the last eighteen months, the greater por- tion of New South Wales has been afflicted, and from which, though in a slight degree, we have suffered during the last three or four months—the dry season, by the way, under   any circumstances. The facts stated in these extracts are more than confirmed by the gen- tlemen who have recently arrived with stock overland. The state of the interior is repre- sented as deplorable in the extreme, the cattle dying in great numbers around the exhausted   water holes, and the failure of the crops all but   total. This calamitous visitation has just   stopped short of South Australia. Indeed, our eastern boundary line crossed the vegetation begins to improve. We can imagine the feel- ing of the gentleman who have brought their valuable ...
