FIRE?—CONDUCT OP THE NATIVES. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 May 1839

FIRE—CONDUCT OF THE NATIVES. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. I am. Sir, Your obedient servant, H. CALTON. Hindley-st., May 8, 1839. SIR - Finding that the Southern Australian of this day has not reported the conduct of some of our friendly natives at a fire which unfortunately broke out on Monday last, in the thatch of the Sydney Hotel, North-terrace, and supposing the case may escape your notice also, I feel myself   bound, as one of the many eyewitnesses of the fire, to remove that possibility by reporting the follow- ing particulars:— On the day mentioned an alarm of fire was given. I ran immediately to the place, and found the flames spreading rapidly around a chimney at the back of the Sydney Hotel. The most fearful apprehensions were for some time entertained, as may be imagined by those who know the premises. They and some of the adjoining houses are among the first that were built in the colony, all of which are covered with an immense body of dry...

SUPREME COURT?—EQUITY SIDE. Angas and other versus the Colonization Commissioners and another. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 May 1839

SUPREME COURT—EQUITY SIDE. Angas and other versus the Colonization Com- missioners and another. GLENELG TOWNSHIP.—Yesterday being the first public sitting of the Court since the ar-   rival of His Honor the Judge, there was a full attendance of the Barristers and others con- nected with the Court. On His Honor taking       his seat at ten o'clock, Mr. Mann, on behalf of     the plaintiffs, who are the Directors of the             South Australian Company, moved that a   subpoena might issue against his Excellency the Governor as Resident Commissioner,     calling upon him to appear in a bill filed by       the Company to set aside the grant made by his Excellency as Resident Commissioner to Mr. William Finke, one of the defendants. His Honor said that i...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 11 May 1839

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We assure H. S. that the proceedings of the Co- lonial Surgeon are not unremarked in the proper quarter; but complaints of the nature he refers to ought, in the first instance, to be duly authenticated and then transmitted to Government, where he may rely on their being promptly noticed, and effective re- dress obtained. We decline to insert his letter for the present. Our columns, however, are now as they have ever been, open to the exposure of all public abuses—-our correspondents remembering, wht H. S. has forgotten, and what we have often repeated—that statements of fact must be vouched for by the confi- dential communication of the authority on which they are made. The letter of Veritas would not defend the party attacked, while it would not only place us in a false position with regard to our contemporary, but afford no new illustration of the position which the Southern Australian holds in public estimation. Several letters and articles in type for this num...

APPREHENSION OF THE NATIVE MURDERERS. [We have great pleasure in publishing the fol- lowing interesting Report furnished to us by Mr. W. Williams] W. WILLIAMS. Report of the trip made by Mr. W. Wil-   liams, Deputy Storekeeper-General; Mr. H.   Inman, Superintendent of Police; and Mr. Edwards, after the natives suspected of the murder of Mr. Gilles' shepherd, by W.   Williams. On Sunday morning April 21, I was in- formed by Mr. Stuart, Assistant-superintend- ent of Police, of the murder by three natives on the body of Wm. Duffield, shepherd to Os- mond Gilles, Esq., on the banks of the Tor- rens about six miles from Adelaide; and having heard the whole of the affair, I formed the determination if possible to capture the murderers, and immediately proceeded to the huts of the natives then remaining at Adelaide. Having given them a description of the three men and two dogs, they told me who the men were, their names, and gave me a full and satisf...

Davis,   Esq., -         I—That while this meeting claims the most ample right of security and protection for life and property in this our adopted country, we cheer- fully and willingly admit the right of the Abori- gines to equal protection and the fullest provision for their wants:—that we deeply deplore the murders and outrages recently perpetrated by the Aborigines, both as shaking that feeling of con- fidence: hitherto enjoyed, and as tending to deaden that benevolent interest in the native population which it has been the object of the colonists generally to foster and maintain.

"Some reasons why the Natives should not be indiscriminately shot or starved" shall be printed next week.

THE NATIVES. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. I am, &c., H. C. Adelaide, May 7, 1839. SIR— I fear your Printer's Devil (if I may be allowed to use a technical name) has played a trick upon you, by putting in type for the Ga-   zette, of May 4, without your knowledge, a letter that I am sure you would not otherwise have ad- mitted. I allude to that rich specimen of erudi- dition and literary research from the pen of a most learned " Schoolmaster abroad." As I can not reply to an argument which bids defiance to any comprehension but that of the learned peda- gogue himself, I will beg permission to offer a few words with reference to the natives of this province, taking what your correspondent may probably mean, as the foundation of my remarks. It is my humble opinion that we have nothing whatever to do with the plans and systems that have been tried or adopted by the Governments and colonists of New South Wales and Van Die- men's Land, with reference...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Country Section near Adelaide, May 14, 1839. I remain, Sir, Your obedient servant, AN EMIGRANT. SIR— Your Editorial career commences at a period when a question most interesting to the community may be asked, and may glean for him who answers to the purpose golden opinions and staunch supporter-:. We are distressed where all bear least to be so, in the pocket, and that too in a way we know not how to guard against. The price of bread is tre- mendous ; the scarcity of flour raises fears of that   price being yet higher. We little people and we working folk feel it most. We sailed from home to seek bread, and we have many reasons to fear it will be often we shall find it as it is. As bread rises so must wages—then may we ask " Can employ still be found ?

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 May 1839

EXTRACTS. MEANS OF ESCAPING SUFFOCATION IN HOUSES ON FIRE.— Whenever some frightful calamity by fire has taken place, by which many lives have been lost, the public are amused for a time with the speculations of ingenious persons who propose various methods of escape; but the interest very soon passes off, not to be revived again until after the next conflagration. When the noble owner of a mansion, with all his retainers around him, stood aghast at the door of his mother's burning room and none dared to enter to rescue the un- fortunate lady, living or dead, nobody thought of a simple expedient by which that object might have been accomplished—the simple application of a wet cloth or handkerchief to the mouth and boldly venturing in. Unless there were absolute flame to oppose such a stop, breathing in the       densest smoke could be effected for a few mi- nutes ; and what good, even in that short space might not have been done ? Better still ...

PUBLIC MEETING. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. May 13, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 May 1839

PUBLIC MEETING. To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. May 13, 1839. SIR— As a settler surrounded by a family, three out of four of whom are females, and the other a boy too young to defend himself, I have felt, in common with others, some alarm and anxiety, as well as a great horror and disgust, at the savage and execrable murders of the shites recently per-   petrated by the blacks. I fear, indeed, as has been said, that we are arrived at a crisis—that we are forced into a dilemma from either horn of which depend dangers of the most serious kind. If the men now in custody are convicted, and con- sequently (as they must be) executed, their coun-   trymen, who have not our religious and moral   views of the atrocity ot the offence, or of the sanctions of justice, will view their execution as a slaughter performed pretty much upon their own impulses and (if I may say so) principles, and will enter upon the frightful continuity of re- tal...

To the Editor of the South Australian Gazette. Adelaide, May 13, 1839. SIR— In consequence of the unwarrantable and cowardly attack made upon me at a public meeting held during my late absence from Adelaide on public duty, I have to request that you will insert in the next number of the Gazette the following statement of the circumstances under which I accepted the office of ad interim Protector of the Aborigines, offered to me by the late Governor,   Captain Hindmarsh; and of the general line of   conduct I have deemed it advisable to pursue in carrying out the benevolent intentions of her Majesty's Government towards the native popula-   lation of South Australia. On the 3rd of August, 1837, I was sent for by Mr. Gouger (then the Colonial Secretary), and on going to his residence between nine and ten A.M. he announced to me that I had been ap- pointed to my present office. Messrs. Mann, Fisher, and Gilbert subsequently came in, and a conversa...

SUPREME COURT—EQUITY SIDE. MAY 10, 1839. In Re Angas and others v Finke On the motion of Mr. Mann, on behalf of the South Australian Company, that a subpoena issue against the Resident Commissioner appointed under the Act of Parliament erecting South Australia into a British province. The hill set out that certain portion of land within the sections A. and B. having been re- served for a secondary township, namely, the township of Glenelg. 45 acres of which were on section B. and the residue on section A.— It was contended in the first place that this arrangement should have been made by a majority of the landholders. That no public land should be declared open to purchasers until the preliminary holders have made their selections. That the responsibility of the Resident Com- missioner was a statutory responsibility, and that the twofold office of Resident Commissioner and Governor of the province being held by one and   the same person would not bar or estop any pro- c...

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. During the week no fewer than four special               surveys of fifteen thousand acres each, have been taken at different points within a reason- able distance from Adelaide. The first of eastern shores of Spencer's Gulf above Hard- wicke's Bay, and near the fresh water river discovered some years ago by Captain Gould. The harbour here is said to be very fine, and the country adjoining of a superior description for all sorts of agricultural and pastoral opera- tions. This station, selected under the direction of our worthy friend Mr. Robert Cock, who has just returned from a survey of the Gulf, is chosen with great judgment. It is perhaps the only harbour on its eastern shores, and   must therefore form the main point of commu- nication between Adelaide and Port Lincoln, and become the midway station between both. This survey belongs to a company recent...
