Sir,

I have to request that you will make out and transmit to me a list of the various articles of your equipment, including such as were issued to you in Sydney.

I have also to request you to give a receipt for such stationary as has been issued to you here; - and that you will hold yourself in readiness to proceed on the general Survey of the Harbour, directed in the Surveyor General’s letter No. 36/507.

Sir,

I have the honor to report that the Brig Stirlingshire arrived here on the 3rd. and anchored on the 5th ultimo on the 25th g the same month the men being engaged for the conveyance of Government Stores, I went (accompanied by Mr D’Arcy) to Geelong Harbour to which place the Pinnace of the Rattlesnake was despatched – and although we had not the means to proceed with any portion of the Survey we were enabled to ascend Station Peak, and to make such observations as will facilitate future operations and on the 2nd instant we returned to the Settlement, and found that the Horses were landed from the Brig Martha but in so bad a condition as to render them unfit for labor since that period the bad state of the weather prevented me from making a plan of the Settlement to fill up the

time lost by the bad condition of the horses, and we have at length been able to get up our Equipment from the Martha, I have therefore directed Messrs. D’Arcy and Darke to hold themselves in readiness to proceed towards the Western Entrance of the Harbour from which part I propose to commence the Survey.

Equipment

The whole of the Equipment sent on board the Stirlingshire from the surveyor generals office, was mustered and found to be correct – the portion forwarded by the Brig Martha has been subsequently collected, and the various articles checked by the list forwarded in the same Ship, and dated 8th. October, the following, concerning which I have written to the Captain of the vessel, alone are wanting

1 Barometer 1 Thermometer

Concerning the first named instruments I have to observe that even one additional instrument would facilitate and render more accurate the work we are about to proceed with - + the chains have been supplied in Sydney without the arrows.

Field Parties

Concerning the number of men to be allowed for our field parties I have the honor to state that previously to leaving Sydney the number was fixed at 12 men each, and subsequently reduced to a smaller number, I have therefore at the request of Captn. Lonsdale handed over to him four of the men shipped in the Martha, the fifth having been retained to make up the surveying parties to seven men each, at the same time I have to observe that eight men appears to be the smallest number of men required in each party, and I have therefore to request your order [up – struck out] on this subject.

Sir,

I have the honor to report to you that after many unavoidable delays I made every preparation to start today on the general survey of the Harbour, but the Horses which have been provided are unfit for the purpose for which they were furnished, and require some days training before they can be made of any use. Under these circumstances I have considered it best (in order to fill up the time) to commence a plan of the Settlement, and I have directed Messrs.

that I will without loss of time send a plan of the work performed it is necessary therefore that I should explain how it is that no plan of mine has as yet been transmitted. _

My first instructions in the Surveyor Generals letter No. 36/507 dated Septr. 10th. 1836 refer to the traverse of the Basin and my chief care was when enabled after many delays to commence the work to do [do – struck out] it in a methodical manner and to avoid any chance of error.

Therefore after giving directions to Messrs. D’Arcy and Darke to take up certain portions of the western side of the Harbour assumed for my own duty the fixing correctly of such prominent points more in-land as would afford the means of extending large triangles either towards the coast to connect the survey round the same or towards the interior when this duty should be accomplished

Taking therefore the high ground beyond the salt water river as a starting place I commenced an[d – struck out] extended traverse towards the high ground above inner Geelong Harbour, taking Station Peak as one station on the way.

I regret much that from recent circumstances which have somewhat detained me I have not quite completed the work in question, and I beg to refer you to a small portion of work transmitted in a letter of this date, which I commenced subsequently to the arrival of His Excellency the Governor, and previous to the receipt of your more recent letter directing me to connect my work with that of Messrs. D’Arcy and Darke So soon as this is done I shall be enabled to lay the [?] plan before you _ I take the liberty to remind you of the many delays which have occurred, and of the necessity there was that I should make myself acquainted * with a considerable portion of the country before any stations could be fixed, without the consideration of this and the consumption of time occasioned by the correspondence with the Surveyor General +c +c together with the necessity for my occasional attendance at the Settlement the time occupied in the Survey of the same a plan of which I have handed over to you so it may appear that less than might have been done has been completed, but I have also to explain that my work was undertaken for the specific purpose of connecting the more detailed work of the other assist Surveyors

Sir,

I have the honor to report for your Excellency’s Information that I applied to the three Assist. Surveyors employed on the Survey port Phillip, for a Report of their Progress, and to produce Plans of the work performed _ The plans produced were a small Plan of the Settlements by Mr Russell, on which I have shewn the Town of Melbourne. A Plan shewing the North West Coast of Port Phillip from Point Gellibrand to the Mouth of the Werriby River, the East and Western shores of Hobsons River; about 7 miles of the Yarra Yarra River, and part ot the Eastern Coast of Port Phillip in all (62 ½) Sixty two and a half miles. The latter Plan by Mr Darke.

As soon as the Towns of Melbourne and William are completed; I propose to employ Messrs Russell and Darke in surveying the Yarra Yarra River and the adjoining branches; and all permanent waters in the neighbourhood; marking Trees at such places, as will enable me to set off Section lines upon the most level situations so as to verify the accuracy of the Survey, and connect them with fixed points; when the Survey is in an advanced state of progress.

The details as mentioned in Mr Russell’s Letter of Instructions No 36/507 dated 10th September 1836. and also to report the quality of the Waters, as it appears there are several large Lagoons whose Waters are brackish.

Mr D’Arcy to be employed for the present in completing the Survey of the Creeks and permanent Waters in the neighbourhood of Geelong, as there are several Settlers, sitting down in that neighbourhood

I suggest that the Section lines should only be marked where the land is most likely to be first available, which will be on the Margin of the Permanent Waters; and to leave Village Reserves at intervals of (6) six Miles on both sides. I propose numbering the

Sections on the Trees nearest the corner of boundary Waters, in order to enable Settlers to find the Lands , without applying on every occasion to the Surveyors.

The following further Equipment will be required for myself. _ An office to contain two rooms, and Store adjoining. Iron Chest to contain Papers and Documants &c. Press to contain Plans. Office Tables and Stools. Drawing boards _ Instruments Stationary. Printed Forms. Office Keeper and seven men, with a complete Equipment, consisting of a Pole Dray, and Cart. Six or Eight Bullocks.

Pack Saddles. 1 Whale Boat Oars and Sail complete, J A Cosea to be at the command of the Officer in charge of the Department, as soon as the Survey is required to extend to the East Coast of Port Phillip

Mr Assist. Surveyor Darke states he has no Instruments, and that he has hitherto been using Mr Russell’s Circumferenter, and that he applied to the Deputy Surveyor General for an Instrument who informed him, he would send one by the next Ship.

Mr Russell also states they have no Instruments except a Theodolite, fit for Service.

The Stores and Equipment were equally divided. Part of Mr Darke’s Equipment has been destroyed by a fire.

Having expressed my surprise at the small progress made , in the Survey of Port Phillip by the three Assistant Surveyors. I was informed the Horses arrived in bad condition, and they were unable to get fairly in the Field until December and January.

Mr Darke further states, he is unable to make more exertion, and requests I will transmit to your excellency the enclosed Medical Certificate.

I have the honor to inform you, that upon my arrival at Port Phillip I was commanded by His Excellency the Governor to take charge of the Survey Department there, and also to lay down the Towns of Melbourne and William; marking the names of the Streets at the corners, and staking the Allotments most likely to be immediately required which duty I have performed.

Likewise to report the progress of the Survey, and to procure such Plans as may have been completed.

From Mr Russell I could only obtain a Plan of the Settlement executed by himself and Mr D’Arcy, on which I drew a Plan of the Town of Melbourne

Mr Darke produced a Plan shewing the Coast of Port Phillip from Point Gellibrand to the Mouth of the Weariby River, the Eastern and Western Shores of Hobson’s Bay: Hobson’s River, about 7 miles of Yarra Yarra River; and part of the Eastern Coast of Port Phillip (in all 62 ½ miles)

Mr D’Arcy stated he had surveyed from the Mouth of the Weariby River to the Western Head of the Harbour, and had completed 93 miles, and would furnish a Plan without loss of time.

Upon enquiring of the causes of so little progress having been made, I was informed. “ The horses arrived in bad condition, and that they were unable to take the Field before the Months of December and January. _ Mr Darke met with an accident: A Medical Certificate of which, I transmitted to the Governor.

The Three Assistant Surveyors complain they were even not furnished with proper instruments. Mr Russell had a Theodolite, and Messrs Darke and D’Arcy were using Katers Compasses. They were all in want of Drawing Instruments. I was under the necessity of leaving my Circumferenter behind for their use.

Upon enquiry of the state and condition of their Equipment

I found

I found they had adopted a novel mode of Expenditure, by equally dividing the Stores. The reason given, was, that the Commissariat Officer would not be responsible for the safety of the Stores.

I was further directed to draw up a detailed report of the course I would propose to take for the early accomplishment of such a portion of the District to the West and North of Melbourne as would enable the Government to offer Sections for Sale. And also to state what further Equipment may be required for a Branch of the Survey Department, consisting of myself and three Assistant Surveyors.

The course I proposed was for Messrs. Russell and Darke to survey the Yarra Yarra River, and their tributary streams, and permanent waters; as far as the Land is most likely to be at first available; and that I should mark off the Sections on the Margin of the Yarra Yarra River and Waters, agreable to the usual practice of marking Sections, which were to be commenced from the Reserve, two Miles West of Batman’s Hill. Village Reserves being left at intervals of 6 miles.

Mr D’Arcy to survey the Permanent Waters, and Rivers Marrabul and Barwin; preparatory to marking of the Section Lines.

I also directed their particular attention to the Instruction contained in your Letter No 36/507 Dated 10th September, addressed to Mr Assistt. Surveyor Russell.

The following further Equipment will be required for myself. _ An office to contain two Rooms and Store adjoining Iron Chest to contain Papers and Documents &c. Cupboards or Press to contain Plans _ Office Tables and Stools. Drawing Boards. Instrumts Stationary, Printed Forms. Office Keeper and Seven Men.

A Complete Field Equipment. A Pole Dray and Cart. Eight Bullocks Three Horses that will Pack and Draw (one being Extra in case of Casualties) Pack Saddles. _ A Whale Boat oars and Sails complete, to be at the command of the Officer in Charge of the Department, as soon as the Survey is required to extend to the East Coast of Port Phillip

Melbourne Port Phillip 1st July 1837.

Sir,

Upon my arrival at Port Phillip I called upon Mr Assistt. Surveyor Russell for his Equipment, and all the Public Property in his charge, which I received on 7th June.

I also called upon the three Assistt Surveyors for their Reports of Progress and all Plans, they have completed.

Mr Russell produced no Journal or Monthly Reports and all he had surveyed since the departure of His Excellency the Governor from Port Phillip on 29th March was about 8 miles of a Creek, which any Surveyor, might have surveyed, in two days.

Mr D’Arcy has produced no Plan, nor any Report of Progress; he is constantly at the Settlement, where he has been three weeks doing nothing, under the plea of getting his Dray repaired; although he is furnished with Pack Horses. He could have employed himself drawing his Plan. He expressed great doubt about the accuracy of his own work, and great indifference. _ In my humble opinion the sooner he is removed from this Station the better; as I expect no assistance whatever.

Mr Darke has also been at the Settlement, but has employed himself; taking Levels of the Streets; and marking a furrow around the Streets of Melbourne. He is extremely slow, but as he expresses Zeal, I have some hopes, that he will be useful as an auxiliary. During that period I surveyed about 6 0 miles including Sections of Land marked distinctly and numbered at the corners to the amount of 15,000 acres ready for Sale.

I am going to proceed myself with the Yarra Yarra River which appears to be a very important River, and contains excellent Water; not generally the case; the Water being Chalybeate quality

The country is well adapted for Sheep and Cattle.

As soon as I have a complete district surveyed I shall transmit Plans to Head Quarters

I have the honor to be

I have the honour to inform you that I have received a portion of my personal and Government Stores The weather being boisterous and a want of Boats, has at present prevented their being landed at the Settlement.

As the Steamer will sail before I can examine the Stores sent, I am under the necessity of waiting another opportunity to acknowledge the receipt of the several articles, which were packed in 39 Packages, without numerating the contents in each package.

The Horses arrived safe, but not at present fit for service. They were landed in a careless manner; thrown overboard without slinging; and my Pony narrowly escaped drowning, being in the Water about one hour swimming about. They were landed two at a time. It is next to a miracle they came here safe.

I cannot but remark: a Dray without Bullocks is useless, and I trust they may be sent by Land as soon as convenient.

As soon as I get a correct account of the state of the Stores I formerly sent for _ I shall make a further requisition if necessary, and an application for an Assistant Surveyor, who will endeavour to fulfil his duty.

Melbourne 7th December 1837. Port Phillip

Sir,

I have the honour to report for your Information the state of the Department in this part of the Colony: and the progress made by the Officers employed. _ The Agregate number of running miles, surveyed by Mr. D’Arcy between the Months of March and November was (80) Eighty Previous to that period about 90 miles, Mr Darke between March & November about 63 miles; also Levelling for the Streets and marking furrows: about another Months work. The great cause of such slow progress constant visits to the Settlement. I have been obliged to write sharply on the subject of those visits. I also obtained previously to that period, a running Survey of 60 miles from the latter gentleman.

I have now surveyed and marked in sections about 80,000 Acres, above 7/8ths surveyed by myself. I have nearly completed a Map of the same, and shall as soon as possible complete another to transmit to Head Quarters. I have had frequent interruptions, by being obliged to look after, instead of being assisted by those under my orders.

I am obliged to draw my Plans in my Tent, and of course cannot possibly draw a proper Plan, where the Thermometer ranges some days at noon at 104 degrees; and at other times less than 60° degrees within a few days. The wind is high.

I regret to state than Office and Store are in slow progress. The Public Property is deposited in a large Hut, accessible to other Departments, who have unceremoniously made use of the Stores belonging to the Department, without the courtesy of transmitting a Receipt for the same Slops have been taken away, which I have since recovered. There is a person appointed as a Storekeeper, who is obliged only to attend at a short period in the day. The consequence is, I am obliged to wait their pleasure to get my Stores, and cannot without great difficulty obtain what I require. I have not been able to hold any regular Survey on the Stores. _ I have desired Mr D’Arcy to give up the Public Property in direction to your Instructions of No 37/441 dated 29th August 1837. a Portion of which I have obtained. His Equipment nearly all unserviceable.

Mr Smythe arrived here on 20th November. I shall report on his competency, the first opportunity.

Referring to your Letter No 37/472 dated 15th September 1837. upon creditable information, I understand there is no Site for a Town near Point Henry. The Swamps are of Salt Water; and no fresh Water to be found. As soon as I have completed my Plans of my late Surveys I propose going to Geelong to report upon the subject.
