THE WESLEYAN CENTENARY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 October 1839
TH.E WESLEYAN CENTENARY. Great preparations are being made for the celebration «f this festival on Friday next, the 25th instant, which is the day appointed by the Conference for its observation by the Wesleyan body throughout the world. From the uhusál interest which the Adelaide public seem to take in the matter, we expect that there will be crbwded audiences present on the occasion, in Gawler Place Chapel, especially at the social meeting in the evening; The various Ministers in town, we believe, will Jake part in the services of the evening,-a splendid illustration of the harmony which exists between the several sec tions of the Christian Church in Adelaide. We had intended this week to have at some length entered into the history and progress of the Wes leyan Society, and to have advocated its cause with the public ; but on deliberation j we think the last is almost unnecessary with the Adelaide j public, who have occular démonstration of its I usefulness, and are universally k...

Quid verum atque decena euro, et rog», et omni» tn Mee lum.-Hoa. Er., lib. 1, ej». >,Y. ll. ? ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY,OCTOBER 23,1839. WE are truly glad to observe itt the Ga zette of last Thursday, an advertisement containing the heads of a scheme of Muni cipal Government for the city of Ade laide. Wte sincerely thank His Excel lency the Governor, for turning his attention to this very important subject; and we rejoice to see such a manifestation of desire to promote a well-regulated social system among us. We are also happy to know that His Èx ce Heney'* wish is in full accordance with that of the Borne Government. We think, however, 1 that it would not be candid, "on a subject affecting the welfare of this community, so nearly-, to withhold the expression of our difficulties with regard to certain I parts, or rather defects of the proposed bill, if, iudeed, the prospectus gives à Just representation of it. This Bill, when it becomes an Act» is iii effect to stand in the place of a...
THE BOTANICAL GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 October 1839
I THE BOTANICAL GAHDEN. I Wá recommended a walk to this garden I which is last assuming an oppear |*nc0 worthy itt oasae. Kr. Bailey, the colonial botanist, deserves g re af praise fût die manner in »hieb he has exerted himself in improving the garden, and we are glad that the committee have testified their sense of his exertions by presenting him with a douation of £25. We would suggest to Mr. Bailey, the ádvantage that would be derived by him, if he could make arrangements for sup plying visitors with refreshments, such as tea¿ &c. If this could be done, (and we think the coin mi i tee would not tor a mo ment object) the gardens would soon be come a public place of resort, and at thesaine time gain roany supporters. In hot weather it is much too far for the ladies to walk, unless there existed the means of obtaining some such re freshing beverage as that we have named. Of course; none hut subscribers should be entitled to tea in the gardens, and to them it -should be suppl...

I he site for the new building, which is to bewailed St. John's Church, is near the southern extremiiyof East Terrace, on groürid given by O. Gillis; Esq.

It is intended- that the Church shall contain about GOO sittings, which is quite large enough for a climate like this. We have not seen the design, but we be lieve it uill be very ornamental.

i THE AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. n~ . . . . _ , W E, last week gave a short notice of the ! intended formation of a society under the i above designation ; we have now the pleasure in drawing attention to an ad vertisement in another column calling a public meeting of those friendly to the ob ject proposed to be held at the Conn House, ob Monday next, instead of to morrow evening, (as previously adver tised.) The houor of making an active start iu the formation of an Agricultural Association, we believe belongs to Capt. Berkeley, and we conceive it to be an honor of no trifling moment. Wc trust that the Association will be carried on vigorously and liberally ; and we would suggest the propriety of en couraging every branch of colonial in dustry. Thus the farmer who can pro duce the best sample of wheal, ot other grain, should receive a prize. The stock keeper who can produce the fattest oit or the handsomest bull, or the finest de scription of cow, should likewise be le ivarded.-The ...

MECHANICS INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 October 1839
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. WE much regret that we should have omitted last week to take notice of the interesting lecture delivered by Mr. Platts, &nbsp; on Music on the 14th instant. The num- ber present upon the occasion, which could not be less than 250, plainly evi- denced the growing popularity of the In- stitutions and the very able manner in which Mr. Platts elucidated the subject of his lecture, certaiuly tended much to establish its popularity. Mr. Platts reviewed the history of mu- sic from its earliest trace down to the pre- sent day, and during his lecture gave some pleasing specimens of the prevail- ing musical taste at different periods. The assembly repeatedly evinced their satis- tion with the performance of lecturer who was assisted by Messrs. Bennett and Ewens, recently from England. At the conclusion of the lecture the secretary suggested the propriety of getting up an amateur concert for the benefit of the in- firmary, a suggestion which we most warmly second ...
