THE REPORTER REPORTED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845

THE REPORTER REPORTED. TO TH« ifDITOR OT THS SOOTH JUSTS ALU*. Sra-It is perhaps one of the worst signs of the times in whick we live, that it has, of late years, beeome the practice to give police reports in the newspapers with all their disgusting details in full, and sometimes a stray dash of canicatnre, in order to pander to the vile taste of readers, who resemble vermin which, bred in dung- hills, delight to feed on the corruption whence they spring; and, if we are to judge from the commonness of the practice, this class of readers is lamentably nu- merous. Such a reprehensible course you have ever, to yoar honor be it spoken, carefully avoided, maintaining that dignified tone which becomes the journalist of a Christian country. Your reporter, however, in your paper of the 13th in- stant, has led you into an error of a different kind, and a very serious one-a libel on a gentleman of the name of Edward Alphonso Thomas. Like many young men, when strolling about in the evening, an...

The South Australian. ADEIAIDE: FRIDAY. MAY 23. 1845. THE MINERAL LANDS AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845

Wfft jgotttft australian. ADEJJUDK: FiocAjr. HAT 23. 1845. THE MINERAL LANDS AGAIN. IN our last, ve published a statement in refer- ence to the selection and appropriation of mineral lands by certain parties, by virtue of land orders granted by tbe South Australian Commissioners. That measure has excited a great deal of spec- ulation and discussion ; and we hear that a brother-chip, after devoting we dare not say how many hours to a consideration of the whole question, including examination of documents, has finally decided against the Government, lt is a singular coincidence, or rather anti-in- cidence, that, after devoting we will not say hours, but certainly some attention to the subject, we have come to an exactly opposite conclusion. Que ground upon v< liich we rest is the ascer- tained fact, that the holders of preliminary laud ordets, so long ago as May, 1838, agreed among themselves and with Government that j they would, and did choose certain districts in which t...

TAKING THE CENSUS IN ALABAMA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845

TAKING THE CENSUS IN ALABAMA. THE folio IV ¡n sr amusing sketch is taken from Mr. Hooper's account of his experience while taking the census in one of the dislticts of Ala- bama: Our next encounter was with an old lady, notorious in her neighborhood for garrulity and simple-minded ncaa. Mer loquacity knew no bounds ; it waa constant, unremitting, interminable, and sometí mea laughably «illy. She was interested in quite a large Chancery suit, which had " been dragging tts slow length along" for several years, and furnished her with a conversational fund which she drew upon extensively, under thc idea that its merits could never be sufficiently discussed. . Having been warned of her propensity, and being some, j what hurried when wc called upon her, we were disposed ; to get through business as soon aa possible, and without ! hearing her enumeration of the strong pointa of her law : case.

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. MAY 21. Several cases were brought on and disposed of, none of which possessed any public interest, with the exception of the case John Stephens v. Lambert and Son. The plaintiff in this cause sought to recover the sum of £9 7s. 6d., for advertisements on behalf of the Cattle Company, ordered to be inserted by the defendants. Messrs Lambert & Son denied their liability, on the ground that having given up the names of their prin- cipals, they, as agents, could not' be proceeded against. The Magistrate ordered the case to be dismissed.

IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845

IRRIGATION. BEING more and more convinced that we shall do an important service to the agriculturists by pointing out to them the nature and importance of irrigation, we commence to-day-to re-publish the comparatively short, but very able treatise 00 it, which appears in the Cyclopaedia pub- lished by the Society for the diffusion of Useful Knowledge, The information conveyed will, we trust, be used even during the present season ; and, if so, we shall feel much obliged by the parties sending1 in an accurate account of the results We are perfectly aware that we may expound long enough theoretically the benefits of irrigation, but it can only be brought iuto general use by some enterprising individuals shewing practically its effects. One example u better than a thousand precepts, all the world over : IRRIGATION.--Of all the substances which occur in the vegetation and growth of plants, water is the most essen- tial ; without moisture the seed cannot germinate, nor can the plant rece...

IMPROVEMENTS IN ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845

    IMPROVEMENTS IN ADELAIDE.   WE have from time had the pleasure of record- ing the symptoms of rapid increase and improve- ment in our rising metropolis, but assuredly these symptoms were never more rife than they are at the present moment. In Hindley-street, several new shops are projected (one of which -Mr Blyth's -is commenced), in order to com- plete a range of buildings planned by Messrs. James and Thomas, of which the centre is that occupied by Mr R. Sanders. Having been fa- vored with a sight of the plan, we can state with confidence that, when completed, it will be the handsomest range of buildings in Ade- laide. On either side of these, other parties are building shops, &c. On the east is a large two story building nearly completed, which, we be- lieve, is intended for coffee-rooms; and, on the west, some small shops.   In King William-street, excavations and other building operations .are in progress, and more ...

IRRIGATION. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 May 1845

IRRIGATION. (Concluded from our last.) WHEN the surface to be irrigated is very flat and nearly level, it is necessary to form artificial slopes for the water to mn over. The whole of the ground is laid in broad beds, nndnlating like the waves of the sea. The upper part of these beds is quite level from end to end, and here the channel or float which brings the water on is cat. From the edge of this channel the ground is made to slope a foot or two on both sides, and a ditch is cut at the bottom parallel to the float. The whole of the ground is laid out in these beds. AU the floats are supplied by a main channel at right angles to the beds, and some- what above them, and all the ditches or drains runs into a main ditch parallel to the main float, and below the lowest drain. The course of tbe water is very regular. As soon as the flood-gates are opened it flows into all the i upper channels, which it fills till they overflow in their whole length. The sloping sides are covered with a...
