It is of no import to meI whether that evidence be correct ornot.-I am Sir, your obedient servant, Ops of mTa RtrEPOTR'n O To l TE " SYDN?Y MO?[?OR.".

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 15 February 1839
- South Australia. A fire at Adelaide has destroyed two public offices and valuabhle public and private documents. Adelaide is now piarched up with drought. Its soil, ha;ving a limestone formation, does not resist dry weather as some kinds of soils do. But a lime stone soil is a good soil for every purpose, par ticularly for sheep; but moisture mu-t be had, orfertility of soil is of no use. "The following is an extract from a speech made by Mr. Gouger at a public dinner given him the other day in London, nreviously to his return to the Colony in his former capacity of Colonial Secretary. The kind of bnlldings which are being erected in Ade lalde are of three kinds-stone, pisa. and reed or mud huts. The last I own arehardly worth description, they will shortly be used as pig sties ; (laughter)-but the stone houses I may as well describe. Aboub three.fourths of the town consist of limestone. and the other fourth of the best possible clay. The whole of North Adelaide and the greatest p...

Transportation. . An inquest was held on the same day at the Bunch of Grapes, King.street, onl the body of a free mlan, named James Watson.

About ten days since there wasa row in a place called Durand's-alley, where Watson felt himself aggrieved, andc went to his lodgings in Goul burn-street, complaining of the Insult that had been offered tohim. One or two persons lodging intihe same house went.bact with Watson to the place, -but all was quiet, and they were returning to their own home, when some one threw a brick.bat at Watson, which struck him on the pole of the neck, and knocked him down. Who threw the brick .bat no one knew, and Watsont was assisted home, where he remained for a .few days, and on Friday was. taken to the hospital, and died there on Saturday.

Legislative Council. TInunanAy, FnBRUARY 14, 1839. Sir Maurice O'Connell and Captain King took the necessary oaths and assumed their seats in Council. His Excellency: the Governor laid before the Council " a Bill to amend the Act to restrain the nnauthorised occupation of Crown lands.' The Governor then addressed the Council, conunlenting upon the implortance of the subject, when tile interests of those whose cattle depnsture beyond the boundaries of tile colony were sunbject to the aggres. sions of the natives, and those aggressions were followed by conuequences such as that for which seven unhappy lmen had lately suffered death. The Bill was drawun up in great lenasure from data furninhed by gelntlenen connected with the depas turing of cattle. An error had ari-en as to thu amllount of the prloposed tax; his Excellency had no idha oif fixing tile assessmtent, but the mIistake had clept in. It counl however be fixed by the Council.

Floral Society. If the FloralSoclety has not, as we understand is thelcase,exceeded'all expectation in itsrapid increase, the prCeent half yearly show-meeting certainly has. And as in human affairs you cannot stand still, bIut ur.tst eitlhergo forwards ot backwards, the managers of tlis Society must do more'for the crowding visi tors the next half year, than they were either pre pared or able to do at the late show. The Saloon of the Royal-Hotel is large enough, but the show-tables must not be placed any more in the centre of the room. Boards covered with green haize (not too wide) , must be arranged next the walls around the roomu, at the next show, and in the recesses of the windows; and on these must be placed the flowers and "fruits.

The Drought. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 15 February 1839
The Drought. " So great is the effect of the late drought that the Cowpasture River at the bridge has ceased to flow for the first time since its discovery, a period of upwards of forty-eight years.—Australian." This circumstance if true, and we have no reason to doubt it, exemplifies in the most striking manner, the extraordinary scarcity of rain the last series of years, and especially the last year. We are extremely disappointed, and sorry to learn, that when the James Moran left Adelaide, the lands in that town were suffering from drought, and exhibited a more parched appearance than Sydney and its suburbs. There are sand hills and swamps near Sydney. The former supply the latter with a moist bottom, and hence during the present drought the finest esculents are daily brought into Sydney.
