THE GREAT AMERICAN ALOE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 December 1852
THE GREAT AMERICAN ALOE. For che first lime since the foundation of this colony, the American Aloe is flowering here. Thc great size, striking appearance, and rarity of blossoming of this " patriarch of the flowers" make it an object of peculiar interest to students of Nature, and will render the following particulars respecting it generally acceptable. The account is translated from a work entitled " Essai politique sur la Royaume de Î» Nouvelle Espagne," written by M. Humboldt : " Scarcely," says that distinguished Philosopher, " does there exist a tribe of savages in the world, who are not acquainted with the art of preparing soire kind ol vegetable drink. The wretched hordes which wander in the forests of Guiana, extract from the fruit of different palms, a beverage, which is as palatable as Europeau orgeat. The inhabitants of Easter Island, confined to a mass of barren springless rocks, mingle the expressed juice of the sugar cane with the briny water of the sea. Most civilized...

Several clergy- men, commissioners, and other gentlemen connected with the camp were present in Court, while the bar was represented by Messrs P. Thompson and Milner Stephen. Forty prisoners were for trial, of whom 15 were c...

LETTERS FROM MELBOURNE. LETTER VIII. Melbourne, Dec. 15. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 December 1852
LETTERS FROM MELBOURNE. LETTES VIH. Melbourne, Dee. 15. Every thing here has been BO unsettled, and such rapid changes are taking place, that I have found a difficulty in coming to \ any distinct conclusion as to the state and rt»f prospects of the colony, so as to give use- ful information to your readers. I can now, however, state with, some confidence, that the condition of the colony is improving, that its prospeete are decidedly good, and that you must not fcay.too much, attention to the Ubaatùrea^rdpheoiesofthe Sydney Press, or the CToakings of disap- pointed diggers. It is true that the old diggings no longer yield such immense amounts of gold us they did some months ago, and that no new diggings of equal productiveness have yet been discovered, but there is no doubt that the yield of gold, even compared with the numbers of diggers, is still immense, and I am inclined to think that a gradual diminution of suc- cess will be fiar more beneficial to the coun- try ultimately, tha...

EDITORIAL OPINIONS. TRANSPORTATION TO TASMANIA [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 December 1852
EDITORIAL OPINIONS. TRANSPORTATION TO TASMANIA It is the nature of all measures unjust and impolitic in themselves to bring forth results infinitely various according to the diversity of circumstances, but all par- ticipating in the taint of their evil original. It. is impossible to predict accurately the result of a crime ; it may bring condign punishment upon its author ; it may merely subject bim to the reproaches of his own conscience, ot it may recoil upon persons the last whom the criminal would like to injure. The result may he infinitely varions, but in every case it is saxe to be evil. We have from time to time called attention to the enormous wrongs inflicted upon Van Diemen's Land by the cruel and heartless system of transportation persevered in by Lord Grey in defiance of bl*, own pro- mises, und in contempt of the earnest and repeated remonstrances of the colonists. Since we last adverted to this subject the whole face of affairs has entirely changed. New relations have...

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. Thursday, December 23rd. Present-All the Members except Mr Law- son and Capt. Beevor. Tne minutes of last meeting were read and eon firmed. Salaries of Officers.-Mr Sherwin proposed and Mr Haire seconded, that the salary of the Town Clerk should be £300 per year from the l,t of December 1852. Mr Glandfield asked if they proposed to have a clerk to the Town Clerk. MrD- Fisher moved as an amendment, that they should first consider whether any clerk was about to be appointed to assist the Town Clerk and City Surveyor.as were there one appointed it would lighten the duties of the Town Clerk. Mr Glandfield seconded. Mr Sherwin considered Mr Fisher was pre- mature as they did not know whether he in- tended to move that such persons should be appointed. Mr Glandfield thought the amendment was brought forward to show the position of the motion as if they appointed a clerk it would lessen considerably the Town Clerk's duties. The Mayor suggestsd an alteration in the amendm...

The Morning Chrunicle. "This is true liberty, when free-born men. Having to advise the public, may speak free." —Euripides. Adelaida; Monday, December 27, 1852. PUBLIC BATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 December 1852
" This is true liberty, when free-born men. Having to advise the public, may speak free." &nbsp; - Euripide. Adelaide; Monday, December 27, 1852. PUBLIC BATHS. THE advance of Summer "brings f orcibly to the minds of all the consideration of a subject which the few wiser mortals never forget. Complete personal ablutions can no where be omitted with impunity for any length of time ; but here frequent bathing becomes an absolute essential to the healthy, and a positive luxury even to the most delicate. And yet, strange to say, there is not in Adelaide any establishment on an efficient scale for supplying the universal want. It is not so much public baths, strictly speaking, that are required, as facilities for bathing offered to the public by private en- terprise. The scarcity of water during our hot season renders it comparatively dif- ficult for every mau to supply a bath in his own house. But there are few who would not willingly pay liberally for the accom- &nbsp; m...
