SURGICAL OBSERVATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 30 January 1840

SURGICAL OBSERVATIONS. j Of Wounds.- Wounds of the fleshy parti sot being ia general very difficult to core, it may be proper, though sheep are never much in the «ray of such injuries, to put it in the power of the, shepherd to save the limb or life cf * valuable animal, when any accident happens. The treatment .of wounds io brutes differ but little, if at «ll,, from the manner of healing them in Ute human body. The operations of nature are tbe «ame io 1>oth $ and from them are derived the principles which direct the management. The cruelties which are practised by ignorant and unskilful persons in applying their nostrums, and knives, and pincers, and cords, and burning irons to poor dumb creatures, call loudly for the inter vention of common sense and humanity. lt is not intended to enter into all the minutia of possible cases of wounds, and to prescribe a mode of treatment for each. This would require so much space, and so many details, as would tend only to perplex those for w...

The Southern Australian. Quid verum atque decens euro, et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum.-Hon. Ev., Iib. I, op. v, II. ADELAIDE : Thursday, JANUARY 30, 1840 lt is with the deepest regret that we feel ourselves called upon again to enter on the subject of the public expences. We feel it a serious task, and one we should shrink from, did we not perceive that we should then be justly charge- able with treachery to the public weal. Our remarks last week do not appear   to have brought anything to light of a favourable character. We now put it pointedly to the Government, and to His Excellency in particular, to set the question at rest as to the amount of excess above the authorized sum, and as to the mode in which the debt thus incurred is to be defrayed. His Excellency's remarks on this subject   are quite sufficient to excite the worst suspicions. If the case be not so bad as we fear, it is in his power to prevent the mischief which misapprehension on this point m...
