PORTLAND BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 10 December 1844

PORTLAND BAY. DREADFUL STORM AND LOSS OF LIFE. On Sunday last, our port was visited by the severest storm every witnessed by the oldest settler, the wind from S.E., the only point from which it could possibly have done any damage, and which encreased in violence until 7 o'clock P.M., at which time the Elizabeth, which, being a stranger, had taken up her position somewhat beyond the proper anchorage, began to drift, but although close upon a small reef, which runs out a short distance from the shore, Capt. Tap ley, her commander, with great presence of mind and dexterity put her under her mainsail, and by steering clear of the danger saved the lives of his passengers and crew, all of whom must have perished had the vessel struck, lt being totally impossible to get to sea, there was no alternative but to beach her, aid she fortunately went on shore at the best part of the coast, in conse quence of which the passengers, luggage, and almost every other thing of any value, was got out of...

local jietog. STBAKDOTG OÏ THE " ELIZABETH," OÏ POST I I ADELAIDE.-We are sorry to announce that this fine little schooner, the property of Mr Smith, of Currie-street, has been stranded in Portland Bay, and the greater part of her cargo destroyed. She : was chartered by Mr John Newman to Melbourne and back, and sailed from this place on the 6th of last month, and arrived at Portland on the 15th.1 On Sunday, the 17th, a heavy gale set in from the S.E., in which direction the bay is exposed, and in the evening the schooner dragged her anchor, and j was driving fast towards a reef, when sail was made on her, and she was run ashore on the beach. The j passengers (Messrs Broadfoot, Scott, and others) and crew all escaped. Mr Broadfoot had gone on j by the mail to Melbourne, and Mr Scott chartered the Hero, of this port, to take on such of the cargo as was sound. Capt. Tapley had advertised for tenders to get her off and repair her, and an at tempt was made, but after mooring her twice he...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. North Adelaide, Dec. 9th. 1844. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 10 December 1844

TO THE EDITOR OP THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. North Adelaide, Dec. 9th. 1844. SIR-For the information of per sous whose gar dens may be threatened with a visit from the grasshoppers which have this season made their appearance in such nnmbers, I request you will make known the fact communicated to me by a lady a few days ago, that the leaves of the j castor oil shrub, strewed at night, or before sun rise, at the foot of any plant wished to be pro tected, effectually accomplishes that object. I have made the experiment, and found it most successful. The grasshoppers eat the strewed leaves with avidity, and die almost immediately afterwards. I would recommend that full grown leaves only be taken from the shrub, so that it may be j as little injured as possible by stripping. It I might be prudent in future to spare a few plants in a corner of each garden, instead of rooting them out as weeds» 1 think the remedy may prove equally effective against the spring grub as against the grasshopper.

THE CLIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 10 December 1844

THE CLIMATE. THE table of meteorological observations on our fourth page, the first of a series of monthly tables, will be viewed with much interest by the students of climate and meteorology, both here and at home. Hitherto, in consequence of a want of complete observations, and of proper instruments, an au thentic record of the atmospheric phenomena in this portion of Australia has not been furnished, and the British public have been too apt to judge of South Australia by the meteorological tables published in Eastern Australia. Any one, how ever, who remembers that the sea breeze of the greater part of New South Wales is from the Pacific Ocean, and who will glance at the table now published, where he will find that our pre vailing wind is direct from the Southern Ocean, will perceive that the climate of this colony must be very different from that of New South Wales. In one of the best treatises on climate which we have seen, it is stated that, "the long droughts continuing for y...

STATISTICAL ACCOUNT OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. PART I.-FACE OF THE COUNTRY. Section IV.-Geology and Mineralogy. THE recent discovery of a variety of useful and ; precious minerals in this colony is so important, and must exercise such an extensive and benefi cial influence upon the progress and future con dition of the province, that an account of its strata, and mineral and metallic treasures, how I ever imperfect, cannot be otherwise than accep table to every reader. The principal rocks hitherto found in the settled districts of South Australia may be di vided into the following classes : Primary rocks - Granite of the varieties known as coarse porphyritic, fine red, and fine grey granite; also; binary, with green tour malines, slaty granite called gneiss, mica, and chlorite slates, quartz rock, with shod, primitive limestone, and carrara marble.
