PUBLIC AMUSEMENT. THERE is no more gratifying evidence of the progress of the age than the increasing interest which, men of the greatest rank and of the highest intellect ere taking in the improvement and happiness of the masses of the people. It would hare been a strange sight a hundred or even fifty years ago to see such a thing as a library for the poor at all, except indeed a few itinerary tracts teaching submission to con- stituted authorities, and horror of the in- fidel revolutionists of France. Education was then considered dangerous, for it was believed that every educated operative must feel dissatisfied with bis position in life, and endeavour to force himself up, to the grievous injury of his betters. But the present feeling is that education ought to improve the operatives as a class, and enable the working man to see where true dignity lies ; to honor what is honourable, and to despise what is base. Few things have gratified us more than the account of the opening of ...

CIRCULAR. Cognac, 3rd September, 1852. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 17 January 1853

CIRCULAR.' Cognac, 3rd September, 1852. DEAR SIR-A succession of fine seasons bas enabled us for die last few years lo meat tbe in- creased demand for brandy, with )ut a propor- tionate rise in the cost of it, but we have always looked forward with apprehension to the failure of a Vin ta se as likely to be attended with a considerable advance i'i price. The Sharp frosts experienced here in the spring of this year were considered by us as a serious warning, and we endeavoured to prevail upon our friends to make their purchases iu good time. The Vines, which had been bot partially damaged in April, have suffered much greater injury sinre, from a continuance ot w*t and _ stormy weather. Under such circumstances few transactious took place in this market, the prowers requir- ing prices which no one was willing to give be- fore the real state of the pending Vintage could be ascertained. Unfortunately the worst fears have been con- firmed ; the show of grapes is very scanty, and will not ...
