The Southern Australian was a newspaper published in South Australia from 1838 to 1851. It was founded by the Crown Solicitor, Charles Mann, and James Hurtle Fisher. The printer was Tasmanian Archibald Macdougall. James Allen was the editor. The newspaper was founded as an opposition to South Australia's first newspaper, the South Australian gazette and colonial register, edited by George Stevenson. As private secretary to Governor John Hindmarsh (as well as holding a number of other government appointments) Stevenson espoused a strong party line in the pages of the Register. He was also notoriously outspoken against those who disagreed with Governor Hindmarsh, and was taken to court many times for libel, and even once was attacked in the street by Robert Torrens in response to his articles. A clear aim of the Southern Australian was to provide a different perspective to the Register.See the full Wikipedia entry
