THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 April 1840

WB took occasion a tortni^lrt ago from some remarks in the Record to throwout a few bi ts on the subject of the Abori gines. We are, as we always lia Ve been, deeply anxious for the civilization and ultimate christianization of this class of our fellow subjects, for as such we must now regard them. There is no small danger lest their moral claims on our compassion should lose their ef effect upon our minds by the habit of wit nessing their degradation. N or is it less probable, that the very fact that they have Government protection and main tenance, will effectually remove tro m the minds of each member of the state, the seuse of obligation to care for them. Every one ought however to feel for them as bre thren, and to wish for their illumin ation, and their instruction in the arts of life, not merely because it would be a public profit, but because they are entitled to our best wishes and exer f tions. lt so happens however that the. duties which relate to the present con dition o...

MR. M'LAREN'S QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 April 1840

MR. M'LAREN'S QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS.- ^ hat is the general character of tho laud or country ? - mountainous or level, wooded or bare : or is it very various ? ls it in general well watered ? In reply to this question we can be expected of course only to speak of the country so far as it is known. In reference even to this, the best an swer would be a reference to the published accounts of explorers in va rious parts of the Province. Buta few words will be expected from us, and we will give them in as strict ac cordance with truth as possible. Thecountry pirtakes of a mountainous character, without being properly moun tainous. lt lins, indeed, some large tracts of level surface, but these are all contiguous to something more ele vated than mere acclivities. It is not, however, a single mountain, or a single range of mountains, which can render a country mountainous. We have near Adelaide the Mount Lofty range, ex tending itself far N. and 8., the latter till it reaches the sea coast, ...

MEDICAL REMARKS ON SNUFF-TAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 April 1840

MEDICAL REACABKS ON SN OFF TAKING. THE secretion of the mucus of the nose is intended by nature to protect the olfactory nerves : hence every artificial method of in creasing that discharge is preposterous, unless required by some particular indisposition of the body- Snuff stimulates the mucus membrane of the nose, «nd, sympathetically, the whale body.; by which the mental powers are in a slight degree affected : If used as a medicine only, and- on occasions that require such a stimulus, it may be productive of some I advantage; but a liquid sternutatory deserves ; every preference to a powder, which, though at first stimulating and occasioning a flow ot of visou s -matter, in the end al wa vs obstructs the nostrils. And if this stimulus be too violent, it may bring on so pro lu se a discharge of mailer from the delicate membrane lining the nose, as to relax and corrode it, and pro duce a polypus, ora concretion ol doited j blood in the nostrils, in several «meases of the head, eye...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES.
