%\yt gsmrtt) australian* j AnsiAtDs: TUESDAY, DKCVWBKR 17. 1844. PORT ADELAIDE-SAILING OF THE «« SYMMETRY." YESTERDAY was quite a gala day ai the Port. The occasion of this was the embaí king ol the passengers by the Symmetry t by which «hip several old and respected coiouists leave oo a visit to their native land. The excitement was materially increased by the fact that, by this vessel, three of the abori- gines are proceeding to Eogland, and in conse- quence of this a body of the natives, upwards of one hundred in number, proceeded to the Port yesterday morning te say good-bye to their old companions. Two of the natives go along with Mr Eyre, and the third with Mr Foster. Mr Eyre kindly presented each of the natives who visited the Port with a piece of bread, and other presents were also given to several of theos. A great number of them afterwards went on board the Symmetry, w here they were kindly treated by Capt. Elder, who, along with his passengers, and many of their friends a...

TEA MEETING TO THE FRIENDS OF THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844

TEA MEETING TO THE FRIENDS OF THE ABORIGINES. WE regret that we were unable to profit by Mr Peacock's kind invitation to the entertainment at his farm, on Wednesday evening last. The meeting was a very interesting one, and we have pleasure in subjoining a report of the proceedings, copied from the Observer : . . " On Wednesday evening last, a considerable number of the friends of the natives tret at a tea entertainment, handsomely provided by Alderman Peacock, in a spacious marquee erected upon his country section, contiguous to the village of Walker- ville. The promised attendance of the children instructed in the several native schools, had ren- dered the cards of invitation additionally attractive; but the weather was not propitious, and notwith- standing " the sun was in her summer glow," the " breezes", which were ** hoarse and high," wafted many a dusty cloud, threatened " Australian showers," and enjoined upon the attendants the expediency of adding the canvass walls to the w...

WILKINS BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844

WILKINS BRIDGE. YESTERDAY, at 5 o'clock, the above bridge was opened by Mr J. B. Neales, Government . Auctioneer, and a party of gentlemen from Adelaide, Hindmarsh, Thebarton, and Bowden. It was named, by Mr Neates, Wilkins Bridge, in hoHor of Mr Wilkins of Market Inn, The- barton, al whose expense chiefly it was built. This bridge is over the Torrens near Hindmarsh, and will be a very great convenience to the par- lies on both sides ot the river iu that neigh boor hood, who will thus, during a great part of the year, be saved the necessity of transporting their produce by way of the Frome Bridge or City Bridge when reconstructed. Mr Neales made a short address on the occasion, in which hs expatiated on the advantages of the bridge to the inhabitants, and on the auspicióos occasion generally, and then skilfully christened it, by dashing a bottle of good wine upon it. The signal being given, a number of carriages, a ca- valcade, and many foot passengers, passed and re passed it, amon...

THE MANURING OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844

I THE MANURING OF LAND. WE hear fbat some farmers on the plains have gol an idea that land by being manured, becomes more I subject to blight by the hot winds. We are con- vinced that this is a mistake, and arises from their not having prepared and applied proper manure. It has been discovered by Professor Leibig, and ! may not be generally known that the chief fer ! tilising substance in manure is ammonia, which is I very volatile, and is easily absorbed by the air, par ! ticularly in a hot climate. If the ammonia is lost, the substance which remains is peculiarly applica- ble for opening the soil, and for rendering it accessible to the hot winds, but if the ammonia is retained, and the manure properly prepared, it will act as a preservative against the effects of the ' hot or any other wind. In order to prepare manure, & deep pit should be formed and lined with pud- dled clay, and it should be protected from the san. For the purpose of preserving tbe ammonia, a coaling of ...

A CORN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844

A CORN MARKET. WE believe that the farmers generally, as well ; the brewers, millers, and merchants, are deeply in pressed with the advantages that would result froi the establishment of a cora market in Adelaid* Several persons have spoken to us upon the sui ject, and their tone has uniformly been that of dee regret at the absence of what they consider, nc merely a great public convenience, but a necessity Unfortunately the attempt last year was unsuccess ful, and, "everybody's business being- nobody' business," no individual has as yet had the courag to moot it during the present season. Impresse as we are with the great importance of the subj ec we would strongly recommend another attempt t be made, and we are convinced that, if judiciou measures are taken and arrangements made, ther can be no doubt of success. In the event of au attempt being made to estab lish a corn market, it is suggested that it should b under the patronage of the Government, if tha can be obtained (which do...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. HORSES FOB INDIA.-We understand that several holders of horses in this district are most anxious to get a vessel of large tonnage laid on for Cal- cutta, to which place they propose sending a num- ber of horses: one gentleman informs us that he has twenty first-rate animals ready for shipment, and that many others are in the same position. It affords us much pleasure in being able to make the above announcement, as it clearly shews that our enterprising fellow colonists will not lose any op- portunity that may offer of increasing the wealth of our fertile district. It is therefore to be hoped those merchants connected with the shipping in- terest will not let so favourable an opportunity pass, but take instant measures to procure a proper vessel for the purpose, and thus assist to increase the importance of our rapidly thriving province.
