VINTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 February 1844
VINTAGE. All 8greo that the best time to gather the Grapes, is that of their perfect maturity t which is known by the following signs : — 1.— The Stalks of the bunches become brown. 2. — The bunches become pendant. 3.— The gra|»e has lost its hardness, and the I skin becotn.es thin and transparent. 4. — The grapes separate easily from the stalks. 5. — The juice is savorr, sweet, thick, and stickey. When the Vintage is determined on, a time is chosen when the soil and the grapes are dry, and the sun Iihm die&ipated the dew. The only ex ception i# followed in Champagne for effervescing vines, and then the grapes are gathered before sun-rise aud not after 9 o'clock a. m., and when not so very ripe as for other tvines. The bunches are best cut off the vine with shears dose to the grapes, selecting those that are sound and ripe, leaving untouched the rotten and unripe bunches. It is usual to collect and press the whole of the grapes in a Vineyard in one day, but it is also practi...

THE INQUINER WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY SI, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 21 February 1844
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1844. By the Velocity we have news from all the Eastern colonies; from Sydney to the 30th De- cember, from South Australia to 13th January, and from Van Diemen's Land to the 13th De- cember. We regret to find that the state of af- fairs in Sydney is still highly unsatisfactory; prices ruinously low, numbers of labourers out of employment, and country lands not saleable at any price ; while the long list of insolvents is rather increasing than diminishing. The new insolvent bill has already numbered 1,100 can- didates, whose debts amount to 2½ millions, while the average dividend paid is about 2½d in the pound. The depression is universal, and we find it as universally attributed to the following causes which are no doubt the true ones:— the exportation of capital for the importation of paupers ; the high government price of land which has checked the immigration of people with money which would have fructified in the colony ; and the great excess of foreign c...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 February 1844
ENGLISH NEWS. The Adelaide Observer has the following sum mary of the latest English news :— The Herald from Greenock to Sydney brings English and Scotch papers to the 7th October. The Queen and the Royal Familr were well. Parliament stood prorogued by proclamation to November 14th. It was not supposed, how ever, that it wouSu meet before January. The Grand Duke Michel of Russia was in London, and had been received with every de monstration of respect. Preparations for his reception at Windsor Castle were being made on a magnificent scale. The agitation in Ireland was increasing, and it was currently reported that the ministry had at length determined to put it down by force. Up on Lord De Grey's arrival in Dublin on the 6th October, the Irish Privv Council was convened, at which it was expected that the first step would be to issue a proclamation, declaring the repeal meetings illegal. After this, an attempt would be made to prevent the assembling of largo masses of people; and thi...
BRITISH ENCOURAGEMENT TO COLONIAL ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 February 1844
BRITISH ENCOURAGEMENT TO COLONIAL ENTERPRISE. Our readers will be glad to learn that the 'So- ciety for the encouragement of Arts, Manufac tures, and Commerce' jn London, has offered premiums for tbe beet samples of Colonial wines, fruits, wool, and oil, as well as for any new or improved agricultural machinery or articles of commerce. As we see no reason why our own colonists should not compete for some of these premiums, we print the sociely's notice, which we observe has already been published in the official Gazette of South Australia by order of the Local Government. The encouragement thus given will no doubt operate as a new spur to those who are attending to the cultivation of the vine aud olive. The following is the Society's notice: — ' AguicCLTuhb, — For inventing or improving ma chines for performing in a superior manner, or at a cheap er rate, any agricultural operation — A Gold or Silver Medal, according to circumstances.

CULTURE OF THE VINE. 'We continue, from last week, our extracts from K«icht's work on this useful subject : but first it mny be «r--ll briefly to state what claim the book bus to be considered an authority. It has been publicly recommended by a ' rescript of the Royal Prussian Government at Coblenlz' as having been highly approved by several Soeieties on the right and left banks of the Rhine, to whom it was forwarded for the purpose of examining its merits, nnd the thanks of the government have been publicly expressed to the writer, for ' de voting his leisure time to objects of guch general utility.' Under the sanction of such high ap proval, we consider (hat our readers cannot do better than follow the instructions given. We proceed to the process — 'of making wine without a presi.

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 February 1844
BSXSCEXeXiANEOUS EXTRACTS. NEW BOUTH WALES. It is reported in Sydney that a new river of some magnitude has been discovered to the north ward of Moreton Bay. The party, who, it is said proceeded up the stream many miles, de scribes the land on the bank of the river, as of a very rich character, end that its course inland trended in a north-west direction. Several par ties have proceeded a considerable way up small streams which empty themselves into the ocean in the vicinity of the spot pointed out, but all these have been only accessible to small boats of inconsiderable burthen. Advices have been received in Sydney of the arrival thence of thirteen horses at Madras. They were greatly out of condition when lauded, but yet have been considered saleable at 800 rupees to 1000 rupees each after a few dnys rest. Hors es of 14£ hands to 15 hands, possessing strength and substance, will, it appears, generally com mand purchasers at prices equivalent to £50 or .£60 sterling j but as young h...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 February 1844
WEDNESDAY, FEBUUARY28, 1844. Among the causes of the difficulty and do* pression under which the colony labours at this time, the high rate of interest for money must purely be reckoned, as one, and a very principal one. It is perfectly impossible that a settler in these times, when the returns from all sorts of property are so small, can borrow money, with advantage, for which he lias to pay 12£ and 15 per cent., nnd to make him do so is not only ruinous to the borrower, but injurious to the lender, whose chance of payment is the more remote proportionally as his conditions are op pressive, and who finds (he value ot the security taken sensibly diminished by the general dis tress which his own rapacity has brought about. 'We do not rank ourselves among a certain class of old writers, who amused their fancy by main taining that interest for money had bten forbid den by nature, because 'coin, in itself, was barren and unprop&gatingr, unlike corn, of which every grain w ill pr...
THE CRISIS. To the Editor of the Inquirer. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 February 1844
THE CRISIS. To the Editor oftlve Inquirer. Sir, — When we are called upon to approach men in power, we step forward delicately, like A gag. We are not likely to l-e gainers by the contact, any more than the earthen pot with the iron one. This is probably the chief reason why myself and others of similar discretion have so long stood aloof and held our peace, even while we looked on and beheld the cogs and wheels of our colonial machine daily getting more and more out of order, and listened with dismay to the jarring and screeching which an nounced the painful fact. The despondency of our hearts engendered by these melancholy Bounds, has been increased to overwhelming magnitude, by the course which you have pur sued, Mr. Editor, in this emergency. Instead of telling the driver of the machine that he had better look to the injury before it grew into a serious evil, you have stood at the door with your hands under your coat-tails, hallooing in the most excited manner, and insisting tha...
QUARTERLY MEETING OF THE AUSTRALIAN METHODIST SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 28 February 1844
QUARTERLY MEETING OF THE AUSTRALIAN METHODIST SOCIETY. On Monday last the Quarterly meeting of the Australian Methodist Society was held, (being the third of this new body of professing chrititiuns). As is usual, the local preachers' meeting was first held, when certain objections were raised against one of the brethren for the avowal and promul gation of false doctrines. The objections wore framed in accordance with the suggestions of the Chairman (Mr. Abbott), and the evidence in proof was admitted by the accused brother, who confessed that he held views contrury to John Wesley, but not doctriues. The objectors con tended, on the authority of John Wesley, that the notion that justification and 6anctiftcalion were Byuonhiiousj was a ' new unBciirrtuial due** trine.** After a discussion of nearly four hours, tho Chairman refund to take the sense of the nieding, declaring that the objectors were not in Methodtetic order.
