ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE CENSUS RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. TBE CENSUS HEI URNS. THE chief fact brought out in the occupation returns is so astounding, that we should imagine no amount of either knowledge or prejudice will have prepared any body to receive it without some degree of doubt. We will repeat the words itv which the fact is somewhat naively stated : "The altered proportions which the agricultural bears to the commercial classes of Great Britain generally, will at first perhaps excite surprise. The proportions which the agricultural, the commercial, and the miseel laneoua classes bore to each other, were, ia Agricultural. Commercial. Miscellaneous. 1811 .. 35 44 21 1821 .. 33 46 21 1831 .. 28 42 SO While they were tespectively, in 1841 .. 22 46 32 " It should be noticed that these comparative state- ments refer in the three first decennial periods to families, but upon the present occasion to individuals. Ihe latter mode gives a more accurate view of the amount of em- ployment afforded in each division of labor ; ...

Eighteen months ago two alpacas w«re received m Wind Bor, and became iavorites, their graceful altitudes and gentle demeanour being much admired ; but nnfoitunatflv the mae (almost entirely jet black). after being shorn last season, was suddenly taken ill, and, without any ostensible cause, pined and died.

POISONING SYSTEM. (Translated from the Poorno Chundrowday, of the 2nd December.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845
I POISONING SYSTEM. ! (Translated from the Poomo Chundrowday, of the 2nd December.) Dr/Brsc the last Criminal Sessions some natives were tried for administering deleterious drugs for the purpose) of producing abortion from which death ensued. This trial and conviction were novelties ; but not so-the crime; indeed, the wonder in this case is that the culprits were j ever brought to trial. Not that they did not deserve I punishment, but because so very many in their con-! ditton of guilt have already «escaped, and we may yet be permitted to question, if justice would have so speedily overtaken the offenders, if more care or better management had been employed in the disposal of the body of the deceased after his death. We have said that we believe the crime under ra- ! view is a very common one among natives, and our ¡ reason and object for saying so ts, that it might bel brought more directly under the consideration and check of the authorities. We quite perceive the diffi- culties t...
THE CITY OF NAUVOO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845
I THE CITY OF NAUVOO. j A correspondent of the Springfield Republican (Massachusetts) writes this description of the city of the Mormons : - " [ arrived here about sunset, and put up at the ' Mansion Bou&lt;e.' kept by Joe Smith up to the time of his death, and by his widow until a week past. It is now kept by Mr Wm. Marks (a leading Mormon), Mrs Smith having moved into a very commodious house on the opposite side of the street. Desiring to make the best of the short time Ï could remain here, 1 imme- diately informed Mr Marks that I waj a stran- ger from « Yankee land/visiting Nauvoo for the purpose of teaming whatever aboutthe place and the people that circumstances would allow, and that he would lay me under great obligations if he would give me, in the first place, a horse and carriage and driver, to see what I could of the city, aud the temple now building, and after that to answer all my questions which he might not think impertinent.

Correôjponïicute. | THE CRITICS AND THE AUTHOR OF COMMERCE. Tv THE KDITOR OT THE SOUTH AUSTB4.LIAK. SIB-On looking over the file of our periodicals, whic for some time I have not had leisure to do, I perceive thc " X," on a visiting round more than a month ago, Iel his card for me with the editor of the Register. In reply to his last long critique, I have merely to re mark that I entered into the dispute with him on th supposed grammatical errors in my work more in fu than in fiiry. At the same time, while I admit that th passages in question would have been less open to th criticism of th. se who read merely to censure, had th ellipses been filled up, I deny that " the omission eithe obscures the sense, weakens the force, or is in any reapec improper." Candor also requires me to admit that the word chea is used in a new, but. I contend, for the reasons airead assigned, not an improper sense. This is the only con cession I ara prepared to make to " X."and the only on he ever has to ...

THE PROFESSIONAL POISONERS OF INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845
THE PROFESSIONAL POISONERS OF INDIA. [ reside in my hut hy the side of the road, a mile and a half from the town, and live upon the bounty of ti ateliers, and people of the surrounding villages. About six weeks aga, I was sitting by the side of my shrine after saying prayers, with my only son, abont ten years of age, when a man came np with his wife, his son, and his daughter, the one a little older, and the other a little younger, than my boy. They baked and ate their bread near my shrine, and gave me flour enough to make two cakes. This I prepared and baked. My boy was hungry, and ate one cake and a half. I ate only ba'f a one, for I was not hungry. I had a few days before pur- chased a new blanket for my boy ; and it was banging in a branch of the tree that shaded the shrine, when these people came. My son and I soon became stupified. I saw him fall asleep, and I soon followed. I awoke again in the evening, and found myself in a pool of water. I had sense enough to crawl towards ...

PORT PHILLIP. [FROM MELBOURNE PARERS.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845
¡ PORT PHILLIP. j TFROM MELBOURNE PAPERS.} PORT PHILLIP CHIT-CHAT.-The plan of tie bridge over the Yarra at Melbourne h«s been altered ; it is now, it is said, to be a wooden plat- form on stone piers ; the piers to be so built that an arch can at any ftMtire lime be thrown across. A race, lo which considerable interest was attached, came off at Melbourne a few days since, between Smolensko, a horse from Van Diemen's Land, and Petrel, a Melbourne boree : the latter was the winner, and was declared open to run any horse that could be brought from Van Diemen s Land. Dr. Nicholson, M.C., has forwarded to the Melbourne Mechanics' Institution two boxes of valuable curiosities, including rare fossil?, speci- mens in geology, &c. The same gentleman has, at varions iimes, given the Melbourne Mechanics* Institution £40 in cash. An Episcopalian temporary church is forthwith to be built in Belfast ; the sum required having been, w ithin a trifle, subscribed on the late visit of the Rev...
CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845
I CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. I ON the above subject we take the liberty of placing before our readers the following able and interesting article from the Edinburgh ¡fitness of April 3, 1844: " The execution of the murderer Bryce takes place this morn ino at so early an hour, that be- fóte our sheet shall hare reac'ted the greater number of even our Edinburgh readers, the un- fortunate mau shall have passed into eternity. There has rarely exsted a case in connection with which the grand question of capital punish- ment-so often forced on the notice of the age, -ha* been presented in a foim more purely ab- stract, or regarding which the tenderer sympa- thies of our nat ure have exerted a less disturbing influence. There seem to have been none of those dualities of a moral or i feiltet ta I cast iii the chat acter of Bryce, which have so often in- vested great criminals with a?¡ interest somewhat approaching to that imparted by the iragie poets to their heroes -»one of that strength of feeli...

CorreöjjonOence. ----- J TS nx KDITOH. or m SOVTK AWTHAXIAK. Adelaide, May 21, 1845. DEAR Sr*-I trust yea will excuse my troubling you with s brief reply to the letter in your paper of to-day from Aristides, in. reply to my letter in the Register, some weeks ego. Our friend writes in tolerable good humour, and mer. cifully spares me the great guns of his invective and abuse, which have done auch execution when directed against lawyers, hankers, merchants, and the commer- cial " public in general." After copying my letter he asks-" Does this antagonist mean to tell na that a para- ble is merely allegorical? - allegorical of what? - of nothing-and that an allegory has no literal sense ! no meaning P" I had not, Mr Editor, conceived the possibility of my meaning being so confused and misinterpreted ; but I will explain my objection to the use made of the parable in the pamphlet on commerce more clearly still,tand very briefly. I maintain, sir, what every one who has read . - - - - " i ...
