SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13 Sept 1849

 

 

MEMORIAL OF MASTERS AND OWNERS OF VESSELS AT PORT ADELAIDE, RELATIVE TO THE NORTH ARM

Respectfully sheweth that the long, narrow, tortuous passage up to the present shipping place, occasions greater loss of time and more wear

and tear of canvas and cordage than days and hundreds of miles in the open ocean. To pass by such a splendid sheet of water as that of the

North Arm, equally convenient to the Capital and miles nearer to the sea, merely to cram the shipping into a narrow, rocky, mud hole, where

taking the ground, they must strain their timbers or break their backs, appears to your Memorialists perfect madness. A place so injurious to

large ships, so inconvenient to small ones, and so frightful to all from the danger of conflagration-to which they are exposed when crowded

together aground -is your Memorialists respectfully submit, the last that wise men would select for a harbour, especially the harbour of the

province.

etc etc etc

 

Your memorialists therefore pray that shipping and custom house conveniences be provided at the North Arm with as little delay as possible

and on the reserve which they are given to understand was originally set apart by the Government for custom house and dockyard purposes.
