SORELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 April 1858

SORELL, i Peoile who stuy at home are very rarely ueeful in their day and genera- tion. Tiny are ignorant of tue wants of those around tliem ; and, even if the i remedy of any evils which may exist'lay in1 their hands they do not employ it because they are unaware of the exist- ence of such evils. Often iu our travels^has it been our lot to suffer personal inconvenience, an incon- venience which must hare been equally4"participated in by others; anduve have invariably tasked our ingenuity to discover, if possible, somo means Í by which this inconvenience could be obviated. Now, on visiting Sorell to witness the late races a few days ago, we were much annoyed at not being able to get nearer to tho shore ia 'the Monarch than some mile or mile and-a half in consequence of the shallow water, and boats had to b« called into lequiai tiou to convey us from the steamer' to ihe beach. It immediately occurred to us that this was a state of things very undesirable and very needless. Tne Distri...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Adelaide, March 27th, 1858.   The principal event of the week has been the show of the Horticultural and Floricultural Society, which took place in White's Rooms two days ago. Con- sidering the extraordinary heat of the past summer, and the consequent aridity of the soil, the exhibition of vegetables,   fruits, and flowers was something won-     derful. The potatioes, cabbages, carrots,   turnips, parsnips, celery, melons, and many other varieties of culinary and   edible vegetables, were such as no count- try in the world need be ashamed of. There was also a goodly display of wat- tle grove, raisins, currants, prunes and French plums, which attracted much notice, and induced more than one indi- vidual to express surprise at our import-     ing dried fruits when such excellent spe-   cimens could be produced in the colony...
