Bache, at the last meeting of the Bri tish Association ; and in the January Edinburgh Review it was said that if the ** new theory does not succeed in supplanting its rival, it cannot fail to lead the abettors of both to a more rigorous examination of their data-'* Thi» is rather respectful, con sidering what Mr. Espie claims. What this is, I wUb to explain, and it can now be done satisfactorily, inasmuch as the theorist has been induced to come out with a tu I expose. His object, then, is to manufacture rain, say in time of drought ! Mr. Espy begins by laying down these princi ples Î-1. lt is known, he says, that if air should be expanded into dou ble the volume by diminished pressure, it would be cooled about ninety de grees of Fahrenheit. 2.

EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 19 March 1840

EXECUTION. ON Monday morning, at eight o'clock, Cur- ran and Hughes, two of the criminals sen-   tenced to death at the late assizes, suffered the penalty of their crimes on a scaffold erected in the square of the Police Barracks, which was temporarily inclosed for the occa- sion. The prisoner Hughes behaved with the most hardened indifference, and seemed perfectly insensible to the awful change which awaited him. He mounted the scaffold with   a pipe in his mouth, and appeared to pay no attention to the earnest exhortations of the Rev. T. Q. Stow, who attended him. He made two or three rushes at the executioner, telling him he would ruin him if he put the rope round his neck, and dared him to take the mask off his face, and do his duty like a man. He resisted to the last, kicking the executioner in the performance of his duty. C'urran, the other prisoner, a Roman Catho- lic, was attended by Mr. Phillips, and appear-     red very p...

ABSURD EKPECTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 19 March 1840

ABSURD EXPECTATIONS. In a rather intelligent letter which we extract from Chamber's Edinburgh Journal (a modest but highly valuable periodical which has done good ser- vice to South Australia) the writer enumerates several disappointments which he experienced in the colony. He arrived in the middle of a summer, which from its dryness has, it is said, seldom been equalled in the oldest settled parts of Australia, and his first disappointment was at not seeing gar- dens well stocked with a profusion of the juiciest vegetables, he having read in a pamphlet that the soil was capable of producing them. Then came ano- ther disappointment in the scanty supply of water, and another in the difficulty   of procuring land. lt is really time, after all that has been written aud said about South Australia, that people should cease to form such extravagant expectations of that highly favoured country as to lead   to disappointments of this ludicrous   charac...
