ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 March 1869
ADELAIDE. Tlie capital of South Australia is reputed the hottest of all the cities that I are chiefly inhabited by the English I race, and ns I neared it through the ! Backstairs Passage in the Gulf ol St. Vincent, past Kangaroo Island, and still more when I landed at Glenelg, I came to the conclusion that its reputa cion was deserved. The extreme heat which characterises South Australia is to some extent a consequence of its lying as far north as New South Wales I and Queensland, and so far inland as to escape the breeze by which their coasts are visited; for although by 'u South Australia" we should, in the southern hemisphere, naturally under stand that portion of Australia whicli was furthest from the tropics, yet it is a curious fact that the whole colony of Victoria is to the south of Adelaide, and that nearly all the northernmost points of the continent now lie witiim the couairv misnamed u South Aus tralia." The immense northern terri tory, being supposed to be valueless, li...
