To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 26 March 1840

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIE-In the Register's notice to correspondent« last Saturday, a remark is made respecting "the Post Office Act lately passed by the Legislative Cotraoil," Now I should like to be informed by yourself or any of your correspondents when this Act passed, «nd whether it is now in force and acted upon. Iffy reason for making this enquiry, is that I have watched the Gazette, for both notices and -minutes of Council, and if there has been any inti mation of the passing of this Act it has some way or other most strangely escaped me. Surely the Act has not been proclaimed. I am not aware that any person within the range of roy Acquaintance knows anything of the matter. If this Act has been passed, as the Register says, aod has yet been neither officially made known to the public, nor mentioned in the mi nutes of Council, is it not possible that other Acts, jof ¿the want of which yourself complained last week, may have passed and come* into operation'...

THE WOURALI POISON. | HYDROPHOBIA. ( From the United Service Journal for June.) THE existence of this truly fatal poison has long been known to Eu ropeans through the fabulous account: that were given of it by a few indi viduals communicating in trade witt the Red Indians of Guiana ; but sc exaggerated were the statements con sidered, that when the British Ge vernment superseded the Dutch bj the capitulation of Denierara, severa unsuccessful attempts were made ti ascertain the facts. A mon ¿st other who undertook to obtain informalioi was Mr. Waterton, of Walton Hali near Wakefield, a geutlemau of goo< property, who determined, through ¡ -pure love of science, to explore th interior of Guiana, and by persona investigation to learn the nature am quality of this deadly composition.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 26 March 1840

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. j To the Editor of the Southern Justralian. I SIR-Tbe Register ha« the following extract from (he Globe :-" The Lord Bishop of Salisbury »od John Evelyn Denison (two brothers), Henry Denison, Esq., of All Souls, Oxford, and Alfred Denison, fisq., of Christ Church, are on the eve of quitting this country lo settle in South Australia." The information contained in this passage is interesting, but is it correctly worded ? It cer tainly conveys the idea thatybur persons are about to emigrate, and that one of them is the Lord Bishop of Salisbury. Query,-ls it true that a Bishop of the English Establishment intends to abandon his see in order (o settle in a country where there aie no sees, and can be none, because by act of parliament there cannot be an Established Chun h ? lt appears to me that there must be some error, either io the citation, or io U>e original wording of the passage. Perhaps his Lord«hip means to give dissenter« a notable example of the exei...

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 26 March 1840

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIR, — I have observed in the papers with great pleasure, from time to time, the advertisement respecting tbe sale of the fine and rising township of Mount Barker. There can be no question that this district will, within no great length of time, become one of the most important and flourishing settlements in the whole province. I most heartily wish it every encouragement. Among other particulars in the advertisement, I have remarked the following ; " An experienced sur- veyor has been instructed to divide the township     into half acre allotments, with the necessary re- serves for the erection of Churches and Schools '' Now it occurred to me that the reserves here- mentioned, were one of the most favourable cir- cumstances in the whole arrangement. There is reason to fear that religion and education are not always the first thing thought of in establishing new villages and towns, or that they are made oftentimes me...

The Southern Australian. Quid verum atque decens euro, et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum.-Hon.. Er., lib. 1, op. l, V ll. ADELAIDE : THURSDAY, MARCH, 26, 1840 MR. MCLAREN'S QUESTIONS.   Question 3. In what ratio is Adelaide increasing ? Is there any other township formed ? To the first part of this question, it is not easy to give a very precise answer. The ratio of increase is irregu- lar, or rather it should be said that the time has not been long enough to esta- blish a certain ratio at all. Another thing must he said. The time is coming, or more properly is come, when a far larger number of emigrants will settle in the country districts than was customary at first. This will, doubtless, for some time to come pre- vent the population of Adelaide from becoming so dense as might have been anticipated by a mere reference to its earliest increase. Nor is it possible in the absence of a repeated census, to give a very definite statement on the subject. The information, how eve...
