THE CHURCH WARDEN'S ANSWER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845

THE CHURCH WARDEN'S ANSWER. Sir-As I consider your letter a very great im- pertinence, you will take any answer to it as, upon my part, a remarkable condescension. I had made up my mind to go out of the world without ever deigning to write or speak again of the accounts of Wholehog-cum-Applesauce I feel that they ought to be beneath my notice : but so it is-throughout the whole of this fiscal war, as you are pleased to call the present athe- istic revolution of the parish-I have been over- flowing with a courtesy, a gentleness, that has only increased the audacity of my slanderers, i have been meek and unresisting, and so 1 have been trampled upon. But, sir, a worm will turn, and, by consequence so will the Churchwarden of Wholehog-cum-Applesauce I The parishioner!) have certainly put me into Chancery. What of it ? The people at the Zoological gardens have put a brown bear into a pit; and the fine fellow still climbs to the top of his pole, and squatting there, looks with surly cont...

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, APRIL 4. 1845. COMMERCE, ITS LAWS, ETC.—BY ARISTIDES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845

Cïje monti) australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, APRIL 4. 1645. COMMERCE, ITS LAWS, ETC.-BY ARISTIDES. THE grand object of the author of this work is to show the undue severity of the laws relating to insolvents, particularly that Authorising imprison- ment for debt. ; He objects to the British codes of commercial iaw, bul patticularly to that of England, as being too severe ; the very severity, at the same time, de- feating its object. Upon this point he adduces the I following startling comparison of tb.e results in North and South Britain : The total number of prisoners fer debt in England in ; 1837. was 11388, exclusive of those in the King's Bench, the Fleet, and the Marehalsea-say, in all, 13,003 in a population of 13,897,197, or 1 in every thousand ! In Scotland, at the same period, there only 80 ia a popu- lation of 2,365,114, or 1 in every 30,000 ! The author gives a minute account of the evils of the commercial code, which he attributes, in a great measure, to a departure from th...

PUNCH S COMPLETE LETTER WRITER. From a Clergyman to a Churchwarden, eccentrie in his accounts. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845

I PUNCH S COMPLETE LETTER WRITER. j From a Clergyman to a Churchwarden, eccentric ! in his accounts. Dear Sir-it is now two years siace the horrors of fiscal war broke out ia our once peaceful parish of Wholehog.cum- Applesauce. For two years, sir, have the affrighted parishioners had their souls and pockets torn by thoughts cf mauimoni -for two years have they nightly fallen to sleep to groan and w rithe beneath a night- mare sitting ou their breasts in the horrid shape of a Churchwarden grinning and hugging in his arms an iron clasped account book ! Neither sex nor age has escaped the evil influence of the lime; old women wax older when they talk of Churchwarden Gripps ; and the faces of little children become sharp and thin as sixpences when they stammer out his name« True it is, the parishioners have put you in the cage of [Chancery; nevertheless, with a magnanimous philosophy, you do nothing but make mouths at them through the bars! Dear sir, pause-consider. llave you not done ...

THE HUMOURIST. (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845

THE HUMOURIST. (From Punch.j PUNCH'S OWN REPORT OJ? THE ROYAL PROGRESS. BEFORE resuming our report of the Roj'al pro- gress, we have one or two little incidents lo revert to, particularly the affecting circumstances of the Queen having tied on the bonnet of the Princess Royal at the window of the inn ; a fact that has added ten per cent, to her popularity. That bonnet will give stability to her crown, and those stungs will tie the people more closely to the House of Brunswick. Another source of the popularity which her Majesty bas gained must be looked for in die Brose, an unpalatable concoction of barley and salt, which the Queen manages to taste wherever she goes ; and, by calling it nice, she has tickled the vanity of the Scotch people. Prince Albert lias patronised the toddy once or twice, and tie little Princess has been made lo eat oat cake several times -for a child will demolish anything with the name of cake-and the Scotch are flattered into the belief that theirs is really...

DREADFUL STATE OF DESTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845

DREADFUL STATE OF DESTITUTION. Yesterday, a miserable object was brought up         before Sir Peter Laurie, at Guildhall, by police man AI, who stated that he had taken the   prisoner into custody on the heinous charge of begging. He had found him seated on the pavement, the culprit having written thereon with chalk ' I am starving.' The general bold- ness and flourish of the writing man was of the most hardened description. Several of the al- dermen had been considerably disgusted with it, as another evidence of the effrontery of the lower classes. Sir Peter Laurie - Starving, eh ! Humph! a growing abuse. I must put it down in the   same way that I crushed suicide. What is your name, my man ? and what is your occupation ? Prisoner - My name's my own property, and I shall keep it to myself. As for my occupa tion (here the prisoner laughed hysterically), my occupation's gone. Sir Peter - Come, come, no lau...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. Adelaide, April 3rd, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 April 1845

TO THE EIHTOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. Axelaidf, April 3rd, 1845. SiR-1 have the honor to acquaint you with a remarkable (?) fact ; the editor of the Register' bas been writing about what he does not under- stand. In his report of the case Ellis v. Mau- rice, on the 12th ultimo, he stateJ that the jury retu/ned a verdict for the defendant, by direction of the Judge. This is not correct. The j »ry, in reply to »question from his Honor,staled dis- tinctly that their veidict was given " according to their own conviction." Their reason was f this : the land 0:1 which the alleged trespass was committed, was surveyed laud, belonging to. Government, ta which i.o person can have an exclusive right. With regard to the silly insinuation of bribery, it is a gratuitous insult to a number of respectable men. but. coming from such a quarter, is worth I little notice. ¡ .I asa, Sir, j Yours respectfully, j ONE OF THE JURY. [Oar attention has been particularly called to another part of the article ...

STATISTICS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 April 1845

STATISTICS OF SOUHI AUSTRALIA. | WE have been kindly favored by her Majesty'* Government with a handsome pamphlet, con- taining a complete body of statistics of this co- lony, brought up to the close of 1844. There are no less than twenty-one returns, several of them upon subjects respecting which the public have hitherto had no inforraatiou. These statistics reached us at such a late hour, that we are unable in our present publica- tion to furnish our readers with even the sborlest summary. We, however, promise them a lengthened notice in our uext, embodying the most important and most interesting facts-facts which, we are happy to say, combiue to present | the most undoubted proof of the advancing State of the proviuce. As a foretaste of the treat to be expected, we may mention, that the fiats of insolvency have fallen from 37 in 1842, to 10 in 1844 That the number of writs issued have dwindled down from 154 in 1840, to 46 in 1844; and that in one year (from 1843 to 1844), debts s...

GUM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 April 1845

GUM. WE have been favored by a friend with a catalogue of the gum sold in London on 28th November, on account of H. W. Phillips, Esq. The particulars i will be found in another column, along with a re- < port by an eminent merchant in London on the value and prospects of the various articles of South Australian produce. The average price of the gum was 72s. 6d., and this after its qualities had been known in England for a full year. j A letter has also been received by a merchant in town from his correspondent in London. He reports that Mr Phillips's gum was of a bad colour, and full of sand. And he is therefore surprised at its bringing so high a price. We mention these facts the more particularly, because depreciatory statements have been made respecting gum. So far from these statements being true, samples of South Australian gum have been tested throughout the United Kingdom, and it is now become a staple article of trade. One Glasgow manufacturing firm which has hith...
