VARIETIES. CHRISTMAS. THE CURIOUS AND ANCIENT CEREMONY OF THE ROAD'S HEAD AT CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 10 October 1840
VARIETIES. CHRISTMAS. THE CURIOUS AND ANCIENT CEREMONY OF THE BOAR'S HEAD AT CHRISTMAS. At a time when fresh meats were seldom eaten, brawn was considered as a great delicacy. It is well known that the boar's head soused was anciently the first dish on Christmas-day, and was carried up to the principal table in the hall with great state and solemnity. Hollinished says that "in the year 1170, upon the day of the young Prince's coronation, King Henry I. served his sonne at table as sewer, bringing up the boar's head, with trumpets before it, according to the manner." For this indis- pensable ceremony, as also for others of that season, there was a carol, which Wynkin de Worde has given us as it was sung in his time, with the title " A carol bringing in the boar's head." &nbsp; Caput apri defero Reddens laudes Domine. The boar's bead in hand bring I, With garlandea gay and rosemarye &nbsp; I pray you all sing merryly. Qui estio in convivio. The boar's head I understande...

IMPORTATION OF THE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 October 1840
IMPORTATION OF THE VINE. YESTRDAY a numerous and respectable meet- &nbsp; ing of colonists took place to consider the pro- &nbsp; priety of introducing the vine plant in abun- &nbsp; dance sufficient to warrant the commencement of vineyards. The Hon. Captain Sturt was called to the chair, and several resolutions were agreed to, winch will be found in our advertis- ing columns. Captain Sturt announced that the Governor had authorised £100 to be sub- scribed for on account of the Government to promote the laudable object of the meeting, and the subscription in the room amounted to &nbsp; £250 besides. In the course of the week it is probable this sum will be trebled, so that next season vine culture, for which our province is so admirably adapted, will be fairly begun.

THE MUNICIPAL ELECTORS.—THE MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 October 1840
THE MUNICIPAL ELECTORS.—THE MAYORALTY. It is a very serious affair when any public man in patronised by the Southern Australian: With a maladroitness peculiarly his own, our contem- &nbsp; porary has lately been attempting to dictate to the citizens of Adelaide, the choice of a fit and proper person for the office of Mayor, and he has gone the extreme leneth of insinuating that the gentleman named by him would be peculiarly ac- ceptable TO THE GOVERNOR! Now this piece of impertinence has been promptly rebuffed on all sides. His Excellency lost no time in addressing a note to Mr Stokes, the returning officer, dis- claiming any wish on the subject, and especially repudiating the insinuation that he had the most distant intention of influencing or interfering with the free choice of the citizens. The gentle- man whose name has thus been introduced pub- licly disclaims all connexion with the Southern Australian, or any wish on the subject, while the citizens themselves are nearl...

ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE HER MAJESTY. By the kindness of Messrs A.H. Davis & Co. we have been favoured with the Morning Chronicle of June 11th, containing the fol- lowing particulars of an attempt, providenti- ally unsuccessful, which had been made on the previous evening's to shoot Her Majesty and Prince Albert:— About a quarter past six o'clock on the 10th June Her Majesty and Prince Albert left Buck- ingham Palace for an evening drive in Hyde- Park previous to dinner, which has been their custom during the last fortnight. The royal pair were unattended by their suite. When the carriage had pasted into the drive leading to Con- stitution-hill, and at about eighty or a hundred yards from the lodge, a pistol shot was heard by two persons who were coming towards the palace, and, of course, having a full view of the royal car- riage ; little more than a second elapsed before they were alarmed by another report in the same direction, and the royal carriage, which was driven at a ...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 October 1840
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. DEATH OF SIR SYDNEY SMITH- It is our pain- &nbsp; ful office to announce the decease of the gallant and illustrious officer. Admiral Sir Sydney Smith, which took place yesterday morning, at his resi- dence. No 9, Rue d'Aguesseau, an event which, &nbsp; will fill all Europe with regret and sorrow. Sir Sidney Smith was born in 1764, and was, there- fore, aged seventy-six. No praise of ours can add to his fame, which he gloriously and deservedly acquired; of which his own country must ever be proud, and which no generous foreigner envies. Honored by his Sovereign, and decorated with numerous foreign orders, he was in private lile beloved and respected by all who had the pleasure and honor of his friendship or acquainance. His &nbsp; chivalrous and lofty bearing, his cheerful and animated conversation, his unbounded fund of anecdote, the suavity of his temper, and his in- variable benevolence and good nature, rendered him a most welcome and inst...
DERBY AND OAKS OF 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 17 October 1840
DERBY AND OAKS OF 1840. The scene on the Derby Day, whether on the road or on the Downs, has been so often described that it would only be a recapitulation of the "thousand and one stories" of days gone by. On the present occasion, however, there was a novelty of exciting interest—the first visit ever paid by the Sovereign of England to this far-famed course. The announcement of the intention of her Ma- jesty and Prince Albert was hailed with universal ac- clamation, and every preparation was made by the Stewards, the Baron de Tessier and Sir Gilbert Heath- cote, to accommodate the illustrious visitors in the Grand Stand. &nbsp; Precisely at two o'clock, the shouts of the spectators assembled at the Epsom end of the course announced the appearance of the royal cavalcade, which, instead of taking the thronged and inconvenient route through Ewell, had passed through Oakshot Flat to the Hanuch &nbsp; of Venison, thence by a private road into Woodcote Park (Baron de Tess...
