ORIGINAL POETRY. THE LOST BUSHMAN. [Suggested by the melancholy fate of the late Mr. Coulthard, who perished from thirst, cast away in the far north, December, 1857.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858

OBIGES AL POETRY. THE LOST BUSHMAN. [Suggested by the melancholy fate of the late Mr. Coulthard, who perished from thirst, cast away in the far north, Decem- ber, 1857.] He sat, like llagar, in the wilderness, Down by a stunted shrub, the sole green tiling That cheered the heart in that wide dreariness. His steed stood by him-all too faint, poor thing, To stray ; and from his nostrils murmuring, AVith a low, tremulous moan, the hot breath past, In thick short gasps, as each one were MB last. AU day the burning sun shed on his brow The gathered fervour of his fiery beam ; All day the red and scorching blast did blow, Slocking the glazed eye with sparkling stream Of waters deepening to an azure gleam ; And friendly forest shadows, far off seen. Did beckon to him with their waving green. Ko blessed drop from heaven ; all was parched And dry as an Egyptian summer's prime ; And in the bright and dazzling sky, high arched, Each weary day the upward sun did climb In merciless splendour, to...

THE approaching visit to Adelaide of Mr. Gregory and his companions will, we hope, be signalled in a becoming manner. The occasion is an im- portant one ; affording opportunity for evincing our esteem for that undaunted traveller, for giv- ing utterance to our sympathy with the unfor- tunate Coulthard, for ascertaining in what circumstances his family arc now left, for review- ing the progress of Mr. J3abbage's parry, and, generally, for considering whether Mr. Gregory's presence may not be turned to account in further- ance of the work of exploration, either by the advice he is able to give on the subject, or by nieans of his actual and personal services. In what way shall we welcome Mr. Gregory ? The only way we can suggest is, by inviting that gentleman and his party to a public dinner. His Excellency, who so willingly bore part at the valedictory breakfast to Mr. Babbage, and whose deep interest in the exploration of the colony is so well known, might be asked to preside on the ...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858

NEW SOUTH WALES. CHINESE HUMANITY.-Although numberless in- stances are related the shocking inhumanity of the Chinese towards those of their countrymen, who happen from sickness to become helpless, one exer- tion to what there is much reason to consider a rule baa lately come to our knowledge. About a month ago a party of newly-arrived Chmese, of whom one was so unwell that he could not walk, started from Sydney to the western gold-fields, and, contrary to their custom in such cases, he was carried by his party in turn. In this way he was conveyed over the   Blue Mountains to Bathurst, and thence to the dig- gings, having been carried upon men's backs a dis tance of 150 miles. It so happened that our in- formant saw the party start from Sydney, and some short time afterwards overtook them on their way to Sofala, one of them trudging along with his sick countrymen on his back. We give the story as an agreeable set-oif to the many narratives of contrary character which ha...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. LrviNG IN NEAV YORK.-There are 100,000 families living in this city, more or less ; and of this number probably 90,000 are compelled to live upon 1,000 dollars a year. This fact may possibly reconcile to their lot some of the excellent persons AVIIO have Avriften complainingly upon the hardships of being forced to eko out existence upon 31,500 or 82,000 a year. We arc too much in the habit of looking to those above us in wealth, in business, or in position, for standards of expense and modes of life. We lake an evening stroll through Fifth Avenue, and say to our channing Avives what a pity it is they cannot live in such fine houses, and in such elegant style, as lill that superb and unequalled street. We make them believe that we say it out of compliment lo them,-as if no house, and no couch, and no table could possibly be better than they deserve ; but we know that it is mainly because we dislike to see others above us,-be- cause we think ourselves quite as ...

VICTORIA. INSOLVENCY LAW.--The important case of Courtney v. Graliam was concluded at Melbourne, before the Supreme Court, on Saturday, the loth hist. It was an action brought by Edward Courtney and AVilliam Henry Mackenzie, assignees of the estate und effects of Nicholas Riordan, an insolvent, against Peter Graham and Henry Sands, for money payable by the defendants to the plaintill's-for money luid and re- ceived-and for money found to be due : and the plaintiffs, as assignees, claim £(*,00û damages. The defendants pleaded never indebted. The real sum sought to be recovered was £5,528 is. fid.« amount received by defendants from Riordan on the 1st December, 1857, and which payment the plaintiffs alleged was a fraudulent preference within the 12th section of 5th Victoria, I\"o. 17, more generally known as the Insolvent Act. The trial occupied two days, and the Judge, in charging the Jury, observed that it was "a case of great importance, whether as regarded our credit, our commerci...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir—ln as many days did Messrs. Cambell, Swinden, and Murdoch reach Beda and Bottlehill, as Mr. Babbage has been months. Mr. Gregory, too, travels over twice the distance in one half the time that Mr. Babbage takes to travel over a country which was unknown to Mr. Swinden, and party and by them far better described in one letter than in all Mr. Bab- bages despatches, now number ten. The geological reports are not worth the papers they are written upon, except it be to exhibit how much trash they contain. But, Sir, what I begin now to fear, is that the patience of the public will be sorely tried ere long, unless something greater is achieved by the Northern Expedition than writing " long yarns" about their hardships, mishaps, philosophical investigations, and sending for reports of the daily barometrical observa- tions in Adelaide. No doubt the Government will have many more applications if the commander is not forthwith recalled, together with the pa...

THE NEW PAPERS.-The South Australian Adver- tise»; and the SotUh Australian Weekly Chronicle, have been called into existence by the universal demand of tíi3 public for a new Daily and a new Weekly Journal, in harmony with the Spirit of the Age, of independent tone, of constitutional Liberalism, of catholic sentiment, unfettered by party obligations, reflecting honestly the opinions of the majority, and at the same time giving free scope for the exposition of the views and wishes of the minority. To harmonize the various industrial interests of the Colony, to prove, that although diverse they are not .pposed, to reconcile free discussion with good feeling, to give to every citizen a medium through winch he may utter his opinions, and to uphold, none the less, the policy which the Editor himself conscientiously adopts, will be the undeviating aim of the New Papers." POLIHCIANS will find in the New Papers a free chan- nel for the interchange of thought and sentiment on the leading que...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858

VICTORIA. THE AMERICAN DINNER.-The 82nd anniversary   of the day upon which the independence of the United   States of America was declared was celebrated on 5th July, by the Americans in Melbourne, a public dinner marked by the interesting observances which attend the occasion, being held at the Criterion Hotel. The dining-hall was tastefully and appropriately decorated on the occasion, the Avails being completely concealed by the different national flags suspended against them, the American standard and the ensign of our own country, being, of course, conspicuously displayed. A flag, symbolical of the friendship subsisting between John Bull and Brother Jonathan in this Australian meeting place was also prominently exhibited. It consisted of the Southern Cross with the British ensign and stars and stripes in alternate quarterings. Festoons of ever- greens and flowers adorned the walls above the banners, while underneath the cornice, and encircling the apar...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. NEAPOLITAN RAMS.-Messrs. A. .T. & J. Mosenthal, of Port Elizabeth, Cape of Grood Hope, have .just received by the Louisa, Capt. Dixon, six Neapolitan Rams. We are informed by the Melbourne Herald, of May 7th, that these animals are of extraordinary size, larger even than those formerly imported by this enterprising firm, and for weight of carcase and quality of fleece-, are certainly superior to anything of the kind we have ever seen. They ave iu good con- dition, and do not appear to have suffered from tlie effects of the sea voyage. Seven were shipped for them, one having been lost on the passage out. We have no doubt that these rams will meet with a ready and remunerative sale, as the flockmaslers of tlie Eastern Province have of late become fully alive to the advantage to be derived from the introduction of fresh blood among their flocks. CAPE TOWN BKEAD AND MEAT.-Cape Town seems determined to "make an effort " to secure good, wholesome, and at the sam...

REVIEW. [The following review has been sent us for publica- tion. We do not altogether agree with the reviewer, but in many respects we accord with him ; ' and, on the whole, have thought it best to leave the review to tlie judgment of our readers.] LEGEND OF KUPIRRI : or, THE RED KANGAROO. By W. A. Cawthorne. The legends of a nation form the keystone to their character. Were the mythology of Greece or Rome but a discovery made by a Barth, in some hitherto unknown regions of Africa-we could as safely predicate their idiosyncracy as we do now, with all the aids and all the knowledge of centuries of study. A legend is the highest expression of a barbarous mind. It is a true type of his daily life, and his daily thoughts ; a tribe never belies the character of its legends. Being the exponent of its highest mental powers, there must be of necessity a correspondence in their mode of life, thought, and action. Those who taught that to drink the blood of their enemies out of their skulls, ...

AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATION.-It AAÜI be re- membered that after the floods which took place on the Hunter last year, an alligator was lound in the Victoria Kiver, in the New South Waleä district, and it can scarcely have escaped the recollection of most readers that Dr. Leichardt saw many alligators on tlie northern coast of this continent ; and also, that the ex- ploring party in the Bagle, which navigated the Victoria River from its mouth some distance up, ob- served a number of these animals. The presumption seems very strong that, during the heiwy inundations referred to, that river, the course of which is ordinarily dbconnected, was for the lime an unbroken channel, sufficient to afford the reptile an opportunity of tra- velling from the north coast of the continent into New South Wales ; so that, if such a watercourse exists, which an ext**aordinary flood converts into a highway for amphibious animals, there must exist at all tunes a sufficient chain of waterholes to enable an expl...
