DROUGHT IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 14 January 1839
DROUGHT IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [From the South Australian Gazette, Nov. 7.] By the Sydney papers (to the 27th October) we observe that his Excellency Sir George Gipps had appointed Friday, 2nd November, to be observed as a day of fasting and humiliation throughout New South Wales on account of the calamitous drought with which that territory had been afflicted. While we deeply regret to perceive by the accounts from the interior, that the losses of cattle and sheep, occasioned by the absence of rain, had been very great, still it ought to be a matter of lasting thankfulness to the Southern Australian, that while the regions to the eastward, lying in the same parallel of latitude, have suffered so severely from drought, rains have fallen with their accustomed regularity &nbsp; in our more favored distrct, and that, in fact, judging from the richness of the her- bage, the size and foliage of the trees, there is every reason to believe, that the periodical tracts of dry weather to...

Major Mitchell's Australian Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 14 January 1839
Major Mitchell's Australian E-xpe dition. In novelty, and variety of scenery, cha racter, and incident, these volumes recall the idea of the older traveller, before tra velling became a mode of varying amuse nrent-an excursion for the listl:ss, the vacant, and the ignorant. With an ttt rest that reminds us of the reading, of other lays, we follow 3lvjor Mitchell and hir. band of convict explorers through the path less wilds of Australia, partaking of their hopes of discovery ; sympathising with their toils, their hardships;. their short coin mons, and, more terrible, their severe thirst in some of those arid wastes ; listen in, with curiosity, though with a more dis criminating attenti(on than of yore, to strange descriptions of savage life and savage men, and their fruitless efForts to check the progress of civilization; whilst, scattered throughout the volumes, we meet incidental sketches of colonial life, and gain glimpses of convict character. It is true that with all this is mi...

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY—ANOTHER FRESH WATER RIVER. SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN, DECEMBER 1ST, 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 14 January 1839
PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY — ANOTHER FRESH WATER RIVER. SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN, DECEMBER 1st, 1838. We rejoice to inform our readers that another fresh water river, within a distance of forty-five miles from Adelaide, has been &nbsp; discovered by Mr. T. Bewes Strangways and Mr. S. Blunden, in the excursion made by these gentlemen alluded to in the last Gazette. The stream contains at least three times the body of water of the Tor- rens, and runs through a country of sur- passing beauty and fertility. It was named "' The Gawler," in compliment to His Excellency the Governor. The follow- ing is a rough outline of the journey which has been obligingly communicated to us. — Thursday, November 22 — Left Adelaide this forenoon with provisions for six days, and followed the direction of the Torrens, which we crossed and recrossed several times for nearly twenty-five miles. To- wards evening came upon a beautiful valley of rich land, producing grass of the finest quality, and extending to ...

The country around has again resumed its dreary appearance ; rain of any consequence has not fallen for the last six weeks, and the grass which was pro- duced by the rains which fell in the latter part of October and the beginning of November, has been burnt up by the hot winds which have prevailed on and off for the last three weeks. The harvest is now nearly over; it is supposed the average of this quarter will be about eight bushels per acre; barley from 5 to 10 bushels — hay, about two tons — maize, mille...

Sydney Markets. JANUARY 16. During the past week, a tall in the prletnf Wheat and Flour has taken place at ail the Millers with the exception of Hughes and HosLing, who con. tinue stationary; but it is anticipated that thiay must descend bltortly, as tile crops at the Derwent are said to be superabundant. The Speculutor has brought up a cargo for the firm of Girard & Co., and the suptplles for the interior have been better last week titan for some weeks previouly. There was no Lucerne Hay in the Cattle Market this week. Prices remain the samn' as last week, with the ex. ception of maize,whlch has takeu a rise. In butchers' meat there will appear a slight reduction from our last. Beef Is now sellinr Ifrom 4d to 4dr per juint. Neither the fruit nor the vegetable umai? kt presented a very abundant show, and the only new truats we observed were melons and nectarines, the first (we believe) of the season.

Labour. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 16 January 1839
Labour. rY a calculation in the Herald, it appears that there were imported the past year adult labhIrrers 4,500, namely. 1,600 elnigrant adult laholrers, .cut least nominrlly labourers.) and 2.000 convict la bourers. It is supposed, that above half the enii grant labourers are, at this mlomlrent. acting as mnatermen and overseers, and that not more thIlu 700 of the.m have been rddeld to our laborriing population. IL is clear, therefore, that for actual Iabmurers, emigrittion. (whibh includes rnd ought, to include women and children.) is ani importation rather of the eggs or seed of lahour than luibuur itself. Emigratiounwill only produce labour seven, ten, c?d fifteern years hence. The Colo:ny has now come to that state, that if the convicts bu no longer assigned, wagre will ri-e, and the large profits hitherto made by our hrildle_ of live-stock, must henceforth be divided btwrrecn them and their free servants. The emigruut servaents will require a large proportin?n of the profiits...
