The Drought. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 22 March 1839

The Drought. The following notices of the weather and conse- quent state of the country tally with our private letters :— A number of cattle are daily found drowned in Hunter's River; these accidents are occasioned by the scarcity of water—the settlers on some part of the navigable portion of its banks are compelled to go twenty miles to procure fresh water for the use of their families.—Australian. A correspondent has favoured us with the following extracts of a letter received by him from Port Phillip, dated March 3rd:—"The country is altered much for the   worse since you left, and a greater part of the journey we were compelled to take a different route for want of food and water; nearly all the grass that had escaped the general destruction, is now burnt, and we experienced great difficulties in procuring sufficient for the cattle. At present both the Rivers Hume and Ovens cease to run at the well-known crossing places.       ...

INCREASE OF SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839

INCREASE OF SHEEP. 'We have seen, arid probably printed, various calculations touching the incrense of sheep. We take however, the facts which we have this day the p!easure of communicating toourreaders, as a much more important and substantial proof of what can be done in our splendid country with care and at tention. Early in April last, Mr. Robert R. Leake, a young gentleman well instructed in pastoral affairs, and formerly employed by the South Australian Company (whose service he states he llft in disgust) landed in the province 390 ewes and 10 rams. The dropping of lambs unfortunately commenced imme diately after landing, and while the ewes were suf fering from the effects of the voyage, so that a con siderablenumnber were lost. The produce however, of the flock on the Ist of June amounted to 851 lambs. On the Ilt of January last the same ewes lambed the second time, and the produce was 06( lanmbs : making the increase of Mr. Leake's flocks as under : MIay 1.-Original flock, e...

South Australia. From the SouTH AUSTRALIAN GAZETTE, March PROGRESS OF THE COLONY,-.OVERLAND ARRI VALs OF SHEEP AND STOCK. T'he last week has been by far the most important 'that has elapsed since the formation of South Aus tralia; and it is in a spirit of unaffected gratitude and thankfulness that we announce facts which place the triumphant progress of our colony far beyond either doubt orquestion. On Saturday last we had the happiness to wel come Mr Edward J. Eyre to Adelaide. Our readers, no doubt, remenibes that Mr Eyre wasthe gentleman who last year. explored the overland route from New South Wales with a fine herd of cattle, second in point oftime to Mr Hawdon. Mr Eyre then expressed his opinion of the practicability of driving sheep overland, and stated his intention of making tliheattempt. That attempt has been perfectly successful. Out of one thousand sheep -brought to the colony, the loss on the route has not exceeded one per cent ! It is impossible not to admire the spiri...

Public Festivals. TO THE EDITOR OF THE Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839

Public Festivals. 10 THE EDITOR OF THE Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. SIR,-Agreeing with a Correspondent of yours, in your last number, who subscribed himself "Q in a corner," on the importance of rendering our public festivities, whether dinners or. halls, the mteans of increasing public sociability, I beg to throw in the following suggestions. Illumination lamps, from the quantity of smoke they emit, are never used in England. They not only destroy the clothes but what is of infinitely more consequence to mankind, the complexions of the ladies, Fhey blacken the ceiling, while the smoke affeots the spirits, even of the gentlemen, nnd actually poisons delicate females During the early part of the evening of Monday last, the saloon, from not being properly ventilated, was full of smoke. The Theatre-roon, being well ventilated and lofty, the immense quantity of smoke proceeding from the illumination lamps in that room, fortunately passed off without much detriment. Still, i...

SYDNEY MONITOR K COMMIERCIAL ADVERTISER MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 25, 1839. NoMing eltenuate, nor ought set down in matlie. SIIAICuBrPARZ. The Theatre. [Faou A CORRESPONDENT.) In our last article we pointed out, that DMr. Lazar's conduct as a manager was cen. surable on account of his conduct towards Mrs. Knowles, endeavouring to shew, that by his ke -ping this actress from before the public, he was injuring the Theatre. We will now endeavour to prove that Mr. La zar's selection of pieces has been euch as to piroduce the same effect. Colman's celehrated comedy of " Who taunts a Guinea P" will he produced this evening, and will be the first piece of the legit'mate Drama that has been produced under Mr. Laz.ir's management-and we are glad to see that the remarks of the prcss on ithis subject have had some effect on Mr. Lazar, for we began to think, that the season would be finished without a real play being brought out, especially when we heard that the performers were to be prevented fro...

Murder. To the Editor of the SYDNEY HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839

Murder. Tb the Editor of the SynNar HERALD. Sti,--The inhabitants of this district have been thrown into a state of excite ment and alarm from the occurrence of a most ttrocious murder, which' was com mitted on Monday last in the bush near a sheep station at Mount Campbell, on the Burra Creek; the unfortunate sufferer was a Scotch emigrant lately arrived in the colony, in the enmplo) meat of Mr Charles Cmttnjbell as a shepherd. Suspicion was first excited by his not returning with his sheep to the folds at the usual hour ; by the following morning his dog had come home, but seemed uneasy, and from his manner appeared to solicit attention ; the other shepherds in the but becoming alarmed by the man's absence went in search of him, the dog running on before led them to a lonely spot about a mile from the hut in a scrub, where there were the remains of a large fire. Upon examining about the place, it appeared as if a scuffle bad recently taken place there, the ground being much tramped...

LONDON THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839

LONDON THEATRES. Chaos is come again, or the Race. Ball a short farce, snore broad than lorg, and less novel than lau._hable--was produced at Covent Garden on Monday. Old charac ters,old incidents, and old je,kes, were re ceived as pleasant old acquaintances, with a hearty welcome.. An angry uncle, a spendthrift nephew, a dunning landlord saucy waiters, Cockney hailiffs, and a wil .ling young. lady"are introduced into a "race ball;" where the bawl is kept up with such spirit that the spectators think ",chaos is come again." Mr. Bartley (Colonel Chaos) was the loudest and most ludicrous of the performers'; though Messrs Vining, Mieadows, and Yarnold, and Miss Charles, exerted themselves most vigorously in competition. T'he audience was, however, louder than the actors ; for roars of laughter and peals of applause, from boxes, pit, and, galleries, iterated and reiterated the shouts from the stage. Mr. Greenfrnch, at the Haymarket, is' another warning to old bachelors, of the perils of...

These pieces contained a rich dis. play of the varied resources of his mighty mind. Church music, before his time, had. assumed but one character-that of choral harmony. MaLLIs, BinD and FARRAHN had exhibited this style in all its majesty ; and their example had been followed by' GanosBbS, in whose full anthems 'it may he, said to have reached its highest -point of elevation.
