SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have received Adelaide papers to the 23rd July. PROVIDENTIAL ESCAPE. — On Saturday, July 9, the whalers at the Hog Bay station Kangaroo Island, in the employ of Mr. Haynes, of Port Adelaide, discovered a whale spouting in the bay, and two boats shortly set off in pursuit. After a long pull one of the boats succeeded in gaining a position near which it was supposed the fish would make its appearance, the other boat being about three miles astern. In a few minutes the whale rose, and to the dis- may of the crew, made towards the boat, which it instantly upset. The crew were now nine miles from land ; and it appears after swimming for a considerable time, had given over all hopes of ever reaching the shore, or receiving any assistance, as the night was coming on. The second boat had, some time before, ceased pursuing, and was returning to the station, when a whale rose and spouted at a short distance, and, most providentially made off in the direction of the first b...

HINTS ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842

HINTS ON THE CULTIVATION OF THE POTATO. The potato is hardly second to wheat in its im- portance to man ; there is so much bad manage- ment still witnessed, especially in rural districts, that we may be excused for devoting a small space to its consideration at this season, when the time for planting has arrived. Good sets with single eyes, taken from partially ripe tubers, or small tubers undivided, furnish the best means of mul- tiplying the potato. It has been found, too, that if the tubers are over ripe, that is to say, have acquired all the mealiness and solidity possible, they are apt to produce the curl. It is, there- fore, the practice with some growers of potatoes to take up in the autumn what they want for seed before the general crop is ripe, or to select for sets the worst ripened potatoes they can pick out. The period of planting should be as soon after the 1st of March as circumstances will permit. " I have uniformly found." says Mr. Knight, " that to obtain crops of p...

ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 13 August 1842

ABORIGINES. THE Hobart Town Advertiser of the 5th instant has an article containing some just remarks on the late trial of Roger the black, at Port Phillip. We promised to notice the anomalous proceedings on that trial, but when reflecting more attentively on the situation of our countrymen in Aus- tralia, it seemed scarcely decent to blame even the mockery of a British trial, with- out pointing out some other method to punish aboriginal offenders. Our impres- sion is, that the black man knew he was under accusation of murder, but he would have no clearer perception of guilt than in the surprise and destruction of a black foe. We give the native credit for understanding what we comprehend, when he is brought forward for punishment; but when he is at large, and an object of suspicion, we are apt to deprive him of those intellectual pretensions. But the question returns, how are the aggressions of the abo- rigines to be repressed? Of course every humane person will suggest kindness an...

SHIP MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 17 August 1842

SHIP MAILS. To LONDON, by Henry, on Saturday, the 20th August. To PORTLAND BAY and ADELAIDE, by Hawk, on Monday, 15th instant. To SINGAPORE, by Ocean Queen, on Tuesday 16th instant. A PLAN has been propounded in England that national store-houses, such as the West Indian and St. Katherine's docks, should be established throughout the king- dom, for the safe deposit of wealth, and that they should be the basis on which we should frame our monetary system, by making them banks of issue and deposit. It is said, the security of a bank ought to depend on a reserved capital, never to be touched for the purposes of banking, and kept only as a security against losses. This the docks, with their contents, gua- rantee, and offer to the public, security far superior to the Bank of England, whose exchequer bills, stock warrants, annuity deeds, &c., are but the records of so much real capital consumed or spent. The author insists that the labour of the poor is the wealth of the nation, a...
