Correspondence. SIR WALTER SCOTT.—ST. ANDREWS DINNER TO THR EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 10 December 1844
eorreöponöente. SIR WALTER SCOTT.-ST¿ ANDREWS DINNER TO THR EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. SIR-However frequently tue fable of the living jackass and the dead lion may be illus trated, there are occasions now and then so marked as to render it impossible to allow the exhibition to be passed over in silence. I allude particularly to the manner in which the revered name of SIR WALTER SCOTT was used at the St. Andrew's Dinner on Monday last. It is not for me to complain that no Scotsman present thought him worthy of the same tribute of re spect which was so wittingly paid to Burns. The omission may have been accidental ; hut if the name ot that great and good man could not be mentioned with honor, good feeling, if not j national pride, it might at least have protected I his memory from insult. In convivial assemblies generally it is a safe rule to avoid polemical discussions ; and when Scotsmen meet to celebrate the festival of a Catholic Saint, subjects better calculated to promote u...
AGRICULTURAL AFFAIRS — GREAT SUCCESS OF MR. RIDLEY'S MACHINE FOR REAPING AND THRASHING GRAIN CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 10 December 1844
AGRICULTURAL AFFAIRS - GREAT SUCCESS OF MR. RIDLEY'S MACHINE FOR REAPING AND THRASHING GRAIN CROPS. HA.VT.NG, yesterday morning, visited the plains to the «outh-east of Adelaide, we have much pleasure in stating a few particulars which we gleaned re ?specting the proceedings of our country neigh bours. We have to report, in the first place, that though a portion of the crops have been blighted by the hot winds, though some of the self-sown are choked with drake and weeds, and though some are affected by smut, the average produce in quality and quantity will be far superior to that of last year's. The next pleasing circumstance is, the decided success, and the rapid adoption of Mr Ridley's celebrated invention. We saw the work .of two of the machines. One of them, made by a Mr Hogarth, on the Onkaparinga Road, is rather unsightly, Mr Hogarth, though an ingenious man (as the thrashing-mill which he made last year proves), being no carpenter. He has taken a pair of cart wheels, fixed h...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 December 1844
INDIA. EXTRACT of a letter dated Calcutta, August 5, 1044 :-"The Neptune has arrived at Ma dras, having lost six or eight of her horses only we believe, and we hear that the whole have been sold there, but as yet the prices have not transpired : we understand they are satisfactory. ! The William Metcalfe, yon report loading for this port with horses, has fair sale. You have heard of the results of Henrietta*: horses, and we should hope that the prices obtained were encouraging, having averaged between 70Ô dol- lars and 750 dollars each. Ona horse, called Attila, (since dead) sold for 2000 dollars. There is a demand to take off any extent of supplies of good useful horses for harness and saddle, of fair blood, and figure, and action, that are likely to be sent, without materially reducing our prices. Our Government li as ulna sent down a coin mission to purchase horses for the cavalry. AH this is highly encouraging for your colony." -Sydney Morning Herald.
Correspondence. THE MINES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 December 1844
Componiente* THE MINES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. SIR-I regret to perceive that a very bad feeling is beginning to spring up between the settlers and the Governor on the subject of the mines. lt appears to me very unjust to blame him for not throwing the mineral sections into the market at a time when they must be sacrificed. On the contrary, I think it a very prudent course first to consult the Colonial Office on the unexpected discovery of such a treasure iii the bowels of the earth, in order that it may be turned to the best account for the benefit of the colony, and not utterly thrown away, as the best of the land was by that swindling scheme the Special Survey system. But, should the course pursued by his Excellency ultimately throw the mines into the hands of an absentee proprietorship, the settlers will be as greatly wronged as if their interests had been entirely disregarded. What then is to be done? I will tell you. Let the whole of the settlers be invited to a...
