TEMPERATURE OF BOILING WATER. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 23 September 1842
TEMPERATURE OF BOILING WATER. To the Editors 0/ the Sydney Morning Herald &nbsp; &nbsp; Gentlemen,—I addressed to you my former remarks on the above subject, in the charac- ter of an enquirer. In the some character, I again venture to trespass on your notice. But I will first convey to Mr. àBecket my thanks for his communication, and the trouble he has taken to test, in some degree, what he justly calls an "important" question. I must also confess, &nbsp; that the experiments he has made do not quite satisfy my enquiry, in the reply to which there is nothing concerned but an earnest de- sire to be put in possession of sufficient data on which to depend in the endeavour to explain some curious apparent anomalies in the atmosphere of Australia. It maybe proper to state, that in my former letter there was inadvertently a necessity for critical correction of what was said about Emu Ford. It should not have been said, [line missing] &nbsp; "all" but some o...

NOTITI[?] AUSTRALASIAN[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 23 September 1842
NOTlTIÆ AUSTRALASIANÆ. Grey's Travels in North-west and Western Australia. Vol. II. (Fifth Notice.) The information collected by Captain Grey respecting the habits and customs of the aborigines is certainly valuable, but whether applicable to the tribes inhabiting New South Wales is not easily determined. Indeed the author says, that the same singularity obtains both in customs and language, viz., that the inhabitants of dis- tricts widely removed assimilate greatly, whilst the intermediate ones differ con- siderably from either. This would seem to afford another argument against a com- &nbsp; mon stock for all the tribes. As to language, to return for a moment to that subject, it is undoubted that words, used in New South Wales, are found in other parts of Australia. Thus Captain Grey quotes a speech that was to have been spoken by the native Miago, if he had been appointed Governor, instead of Mr. Hutt, at Swan River. In that speech occur the words "Bunbury gur- rang." The...
