Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 April 1845
Cjjrreöponöeucr. TO TH« BOITOÎl OF TUB SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. ?fini-The Odd Fellows' Magazine, being the only pe riodical of that nature now published in the colony, is read by all those who take any interest in the literary efforts of our community. The last -chapter of a piece of mine, entitled " A Week' in the Bush," in No. 8 of the Magazine jost pablished, has so many mistakes that, if the chapter is not unreadable, it is, at least, from the nature of some of them, quite incomprehensible in its present form. You -will much oblige me, therefore, by inserting the follow ing list of a few of the principal errata. At-the same time. I take the blame of the mistakes principally upon myself, as they are partly caused by a «tiff, and not very legible band, and from the circum stance of my being ont at the time that the proof slips -were sent to me for correction.

THE REVENUE. I WE beg to direct the special attention of our readers to the Abstract of the Receipts and Expenditure of the Colonial Government for the quarter ending 316t March last. We are at a loss for words sufficiently expressive to desciibe the extreme gratification which we feel at the astonishing and triumphant position in which this colony is now placed-a position for the at tainment of which she is indebted to the admirable government of his Excellency Governor Grey, and to the persevering and industrious efforts of the colonists themselves. When Governor Grey landed in the colony, the ; money capital of the settlers was nearly exhausted, j commercial confidence did not exist, hundreds of I respectable families were in a state of destitution, insolvencies were almost daily occurring, and no less than 2400 men, women, and children,-a sixth of the population-were dependent on the charity of Government for their daily bread.
