TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. THE PROBATION PARTIES. A bundle of sticks can only be broken one by one ; when bound together they combine firmness, with unity and strength.-OLB SATING. Sin,-I think it as well with reference to your notices of the surplus free labour existing at Adelaide, that the public should be informed that I am uware of a party who has addressed our local Government upon the subject, with the view of ascertaining upon well authorised data, the views of the Adelaide authorities with respect to our participation in its advantages ; and I regret to add, that I am informed by the party in question, that Sir John Franklin's administration I1113 declined any interference whatever. The party alluded to has however addressed Colonel Gawler on the matter, in the expectation of elicit, ing his views ; and although I do concur with the party before alluded lo.that no serious harm could have resulted to the Government of Van Diemen's Lund, from making the inquiry requested, ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 October 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. A German Dinner.-Table D'Hote.-First came the soup, very like barley broth, supposing rice instead of barley, and then the beef xvhich had been boiled in it, of course very insi- pid. It reminded mc of the patent Pimlico bread I once tasted, when, as poor George said, they had extracted all the spirit and left nothing behind but the corpse of a loaf. I was obliged to leave it on my plate, xvhere, as it got cold, it turned as white as n piece of wood. But you would have admired the dexterity of the waiters. One of them brought a large pile of clean plates, holding one between each finger, and dealt them out as if they had been cards. The worst is, the plates and dishes arc all stone-cold ; and, as instead of a bill of fare, every course is put on the table to show what you aie to expect, and is then taken off again to be carved, the hottest of their hot dinners is only like a hasty attempt in warm weather at a cold collation. But what most surprised mc was the order of...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 October 1840
TO TUE EDITOR OF TßH COURIER. SIR,-Having recently noticed the mlschiex'ous tendency of the Act for Uegistcring Births, Deaths,.'and Marriages, I beg to suggest an alteration which I conceive will do axvay xvith much that is objectionable in the law.al at present existing. I do this the rather as it is no party question, but one in which the whole community is deeply interested. The great distance at which some families are resident from jany Deputy Regis- trar, renders their compliance with the law a moral impossibi- lity. We generally find our Deputy Registrar in a district out not always. If the people must go to the Registrar, such a supply is quite inadequate, as a single glance at the citent of many districts xvill abundantly evince. And as there is little hope of multiplying the Deputy Registrars so as to meet the convenience of all the inhabitants, some facility in the mode of | Registering ought to be afforded. Why not nlloxv the parties concerned-those at least xvho are be...
