TO THE EDITOR OF THE REGISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 3 December 1844
TO THE EDITOR OF THE REGISTER. SIB-It is with much surprise that I have read the false and maUcious statement inserted in your paper of Wednesday, respecting the admission of a patient into tips hospital, which statement I beg to deny in the most unqualified manner. The man was brought up from the Port, with a letter directed to Mr Nash, which the driver as serted was from Captain Lipson ; but my only authority for the admission of patients (excepting j in cases of accident, which are immediately re- ! ceived) being, a written order from the Colonial Surgeon, I desired him to deliver the letter to Mr Nash, and procure the order, and, in the meantime, j taking all the circumstances into consideration, I had the patient, although not formally admitted, conveyed to a bed, and before the order for his admission arrived, he had been refreshed with a cup of tea, instead of enduring, as you assert, the fatigues of a drive, " first to the residence of the Colonial Surgeon, and then to Mr El...

SIR-As you desire to know the reason of the la crease of the locusts this year, in and around Adelaide, and also to learn something of their habits and economy, I submit for the perusal of yonr readers the following notes 1 have put toge ther concerning them ; in which I have endeavored to shew the difference between the species now so ¡prevalent with us, and the migratory locusts ex isting in all ages in the warmer regions of the globe. I have added a particular account of the most destructive of our native species, and other local news respecting them, both from my own observation, and what I have been able to gather i from other quarters, omitting all doubtful reports, and tbose that border loo much on the marvellous, or that are incompatible with the physical powers and habits of these insects.

EXTRAORDINARY PIRACY AND MURDER. ! TH E folio»inc details show that an act of piracy and murder, peihaps unexampled in atrocity, has been committed, by which the lives of no less than eight individuals have been sacrificed. The Saladin was a Newcastle ship, and belonged tu j Messrs Johnson and Car trill, of that port. She! sailed from Valparaiso 17»h February, having a rich cargo on board, consisting of 70 tons of copper, 14 bars of silver (each weighing 150ibs.), about 9000 dollars in specie, and a large quail, lily of gtiuuo. She was a reniaikably fine ship of 550 tons burden« and commanded by Captaiu M'Kenzie, with a crew of about fourteen hands. The first suspicions, which ultimately led to the discovery of the dreadful tragedy detailed ,be I low. were aroused on the 20th May, when the Saladin ran ashore on the back of au island in I Country Harbour, near Halifax. On being boarded, with a view to render them assistance, the crew reported that the.captain had died at j sea on the...

SUPREME COURT--CRIMINAL SIDE. (Continued from our last.) &nbsp; THURSDAY, NOV. 28. &nbsp; Rosa Ann Dew Hyrdiss was placed at the bar this morning, charged with the murder of her female infant child. On being arraigned on the charge, she handed in a plea of autrefois acquit, and Not Guilty. The plea stated that she had been tried before on the same charge, before the Supreme Court, and fully acquitted by the jury, and that therefore she should not be put on her trial again, for that of which she was already acquitted. The record of the preceding trial was produced and read. It declared that the prisoner, along with her two sisters, had been tried and acquitted at the last Sessions. The Advocate General demurred to the plea of autrefois acquit, and joined issue on the plea of not guilty. The demurrer was then read. It stated that the allegations in the prisoner's plea were not sufficient to bar the Crown from putting her on her trial again, and that the Crown was not b...

THE REPORT OF THE LAND AND EMIGRATION COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 December 1844
» ?-1-?? ?THE REPORT OF THE LAND AND EMIGRA TION COMMISSIONERS. THE above report for 1843 bad been published, and a condensed summary has appeared in the columns of the Launceston Examiner. Our contemporary makes the following; prefatory remarks : - The first thinç that strikes as in reading ovr this report is, the serious check, not to say reverse, that has b»en sus tained by all our Australian colonies, in some of which the suppl; of labour wou'd appear, for ih^ moment, lo exceed the demand ; a state of things for which we were hardly prepared. Where an effect of this kind is genera! there must bea general eau ie, an«! rainy intelligent wei!-informad colo nists, we are aware, look for this cause in the bijh prion charged for land. In the United States of America the small capitalist can pick and choose his land at five shillings aa acre, whereas, in the British Australian colonies he must pay twenty shillings an acre. There \* no doubt that this acts as a strong inducement to many...

It is stated that she had been taken off the berth for Adelaide, and was loading goveruineu' stores for the East Indies ; but the report in other respects seems so improbable, that we trust it may turn out to be without foundation. THE MAILS.-In consequence of the rapid and extensive occupation of the country to the Norüi^ a very great necessity has arisen for a regular com munication with Adelaide by mail, and the settK'.s' are so desirous of the accommodation, that they would gladly contributo a considerable portion of the expense.

Che South' gufttraltam ADELAIDE: FEIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1844. THE GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. Two very interesting documents appear in yes terday's Gazette, which will be found copied elsewhere. We allude to the report of the Sunday School for the natives, at Walkerville, by the teachers, and to the meteorological ob servations for the month of November, made in the Surveyor General's office. The latter, we believe, will be published monthly. Want of space compels us to omit remarks upon these and other matters till our next, and we eau only refer them at present to our readers' attentive consideration. The Gazette contains a notice of importance to those parties who are licenced to depasture stock. Parties holding licences may obtain re newals for the ensuing year on producing the old licenses, provided there is no cause tor with holding them, and provided they have paid tkev assessment.
