LETTER I. " Guia, Upper Rio Negro. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 November 1852
LETTER I. " Guia, Upper Rio Negro. ***** "I am now just going &nbsp; to start again for Javita in Venezuela, near the sources of the Rio Negro and the Oronooko*, so will first write you some ac- count of my doings, which I hope may reach you before the end of the year. After an inland voyage of seventeen hundred miles the same eternal boundless forest &nbsp; ocean still surrounds me; the country is &nbsp; &nbsp; still the same almost perfect plane, though at distant intervals there are masses of granite from 500 to 4,000 feet high rising &nbsp; like giants above the forest plane. The &nbsp; river is still from half a mile to a mile &nbsp; wide, and crowded with innumerable islands &nbsp; in its whole course. It is perhaps the most wonderful river in the world. Below for about 500 miles it is a complete sea of islands, from ten to twenty miles wide. In that distance only once was there a clear view from shore to shore. I...

LITERATURE, SCIENCE, AND, ART. &nbsp; SOUTH AMERICA. To the Editor of the MORNING CHRONICLE. Sir,—I have forwarded for a spare column in your journal, extracts from some letters re- cently come to hand from a relative, an ex- plorer and naturalist, containing graphic accounts of the present aspect of animated nature in the vast Southern countries of the New World, and other matters of interest to the geographer, traveller, and lover of na- ture. The party I allude to was, in the stirring times of the opening of the various railroads in England, and when quite a young man, &nbsp; &nbsp; employed with two of his brothers as engineers. &nbsp; &nbsp; When his various avocations in this line ceased, &nbsp; he began to yearn for a glimpse of foreign &nbsp; lands. He was fond of Botany from his early &nbsp; days, but after the receipt of letters from me, &nbsp; &nbsp; describing the Natural History of this Colo...

THE OPEN COLUMN. " Audi alteram partem." WATER-WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 11 November 1852
THE OPEN COLUMN. " Audi alLeraui parte m." WATEB-WORKS. Mr EDITOR,-Of all the contemplated im- provements, that of supplying the city with pure water, is the most important; as it im- mediately affects the health and the lives of the inhabitants. From January lill June the Torrens is in some places clotted ov»r with acoal of manure three or four inches thick ; ia other places the dung has sunk to the bottom. TWB water about or near this deposit I believe to be a virulent poison; I put some of it in my mouth, and found k most acrid and disgusting. No filtering would ever satisfy me that this water might be drunk with impunity. Air Trewortha proposed to supply water from under the »itv. This is done in Liver- pool ; I do not know what are the objections to that method here- Tire favourite scheme seems to be that of brinkin? water from a treat distance. No doubt this plan would suit en- gineers best, as being the most costly. The idea of an Artesian weil was abandoned, I was told, from...
