CAIUS JULIUS CÆSAR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844
I CAIUS JULIUS C JES AR, immediately on his being taken into custody. The afoiesaid Caesar is of middling height, fair, rather slender in person, and has lost some of his hair. Age xviii, or thereabouts, but looks &lt; much older. Eyes dark, nose national. Walks I with an erect and stately step, and is proud and imperious in his bearing. By order of the Dic- tator, *' QOINTU» FUSCA*, Writer, xx, Labarra." But Caesar contrived to keep out of Sylla's, though not exactly out of harm's way ; for, in avoiding them, he fell, in a manner, into Charyb- dis- into the hands of pirates. He lived amongst these people on the most free-and-easy terms for some time ; and «re may suppose that their company did not much improve his morals. He was detained amongst them from having to send home for his ransom, which they had fixed at twenty talents. Caisar, indignant at being prized at that low rate, insisted upon giving them fifty-more fool he, remarks the thinking mind. We should have been g...

fLoail Hieing. HEAPING.-We are sorry lo hear that a number of reapers have been holding out for high wages; some tave even asked as much as 12s, with rations, while the common rate on the plains has been 10s, without rations, lt is impossible to imagine conduct more detrimental to their own interest. It will only causo the manufac- ture of a greater number of reaping machines, which are already employed in almost every district of the colony. With regard to these machines, we find that we ought to qualify an expression which we used last week. We said, that they should be used only during the day, and while there is strong heat. It is evident, however, that if the corn is quite ripe, the state of the weather is of less consequence, and'that the corn may be thrashed at any time. ERRATUM.-In a part of our last impression, a typographical error occurred in the shipping report. In place of 2 tons shipped per Joseph Albino, by the Montacute Mining Co., it should i have been 42 tons. This...

3LocaI iletoß. SiNGULAK COÏNCIDENCES-Both our contem- poraries of Saturday last printed the manifest of the Joseph Albino incorrectly as it appeared in a portion of our Friday's issue. The Register denies that he copied it from us, however, and lays the blame of the mistake on his Port correspondent, or -the manifest itself. It is singular that his shipping reporter should have made the same mistake as our compositors, and still more singular that in his | Wednesday's paper, in which he affirms he never copies from us without acknowledgment, he should print, among the passengers of the Symmetry, the namètof Mr James Burrell instead of Mr James Binnie, a mistake which our printers had committed .on Tuesday. New ZEALAND.-On Wednesday eveniug we ?had a conversation with one of the Germans who lately ai ri ved here from New Zealand. His opinion of that country (as compared with South Australia) is very poor. He says there is nothing there, but mountains, trees, and fern, and almost cont...
THURSDAY, DEC. 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
THVRSDAYf DEC 19. JOHN BI,A.KE, overseer to Mr Harriott, appeared ' in Court this morning, ia consequence of an in- formation laid against him by a man named Nor- man, that he (Blake) had taken from him a pair of blankets. It appeared that Norman had been employed under Mr Blake, at Mr Harriott's station, on the Bremer, and had absconded, along with another man named Sam, who had lost some of Mr Har- riott's sheep. Mr Blake started for Adelaide, to lay an information against this man, and im- mediately after he left the two absconded, and taking advantage of a dray going towards town, reached Coxe's Creek before Mr Blake. On his arrival there, he was told the men were sleeping .close by, under â dray, when lie went and took the blanke ta 4ron?vihern. ~ Thé y wigccator. -stated that he had got the blankets from Mr* M* Lean, at 'Strathalbyn, and Blake stated that he was respon- sible to M'Lean for the value of the blankets, and when he discovered that the man had run away, he, -of cou...
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 18. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 18. PATRICK Noosrç, an Irishman, from Galway, and a private soldier in the 96th Regiment, was brought up this morning, charged with stealing a watch and a pair of trousers, the property of Austin Cavanagh of Makgill. It appeared, from the evidence led, that the pro aecutor was in Adelaide on Saturday last, and managed'to get pcelty considerably drunk. The prisoner seeing him in this state, with the praise- worthy motive of taking care of him, volunteered to take charge of his watch and bundle, lest he should get " shook " of them, and also to see him home. After getting well on to Makgill, the pro- secutor lay down and fell asleep, and when he awoke, soldier, watch, and bundle, were all gone ! The prisoner affirmed that he received the watch . in Adelaide, and that he gave both it and the bundle , to Cavanagh when they got near Makgill. Un- fortunately for the prisoner, however, this state- ment did not receive that credence which he in- tended it should, inasmuch as...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
f - AGRICULTURE. AGRICULTURE furnishes the whole materials of manufactures, and lays the groundwork of commerce. So that the manufacturer only ex- ercises his ingenuity and industry upon the pro- ductions of the cultivator ; and the merchant distributes them by the agency of commerce among the nations of the earth. ! The land of Great Britain and Ireland bears i the weight of five-sixths of all the public bur- dens of the empire ; the average interest accruing to landlords from this species of property is not more than three per cent. ; while its productions yield to the country au annual income of £400,000,000 sterling ! and of this the turnip crop alone gives a yearly return in money to the full value of the interest of the national debt. But the value of the turnip crop, enormous as it appears, forms tvideutly but a very inconsi- derable item in the sum total arising from all the prodt.ce of the soil. lu the year 1831, the families employed in 1 I cultivation in the United Kingdo...

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. TUESDAY, DEC. 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. TUESDAY, DEC. 17. ALEXANDER LAWE, from Tusmore, was charged before the Commissioner this morning, with stealing a bible, prayer-book, and other articles, the pro- perty of Henry Collins, of the same place. It appeared that between Mrs Collins and the prisoner some " undue familiarities " had existed, the result whereof was, that Mrs C. left her husband alto- gether, and walked over to her neighbour, Mr Lawe, taking with her the bible, and other articles in question. Naturally incensed at losing both his wife and his property, Mr Collins obtained a search warrant, found the goods, and charged the pri- soner with stealing them. As it was proved, how- ever, that it was his own wife who took them away, the Magistrate very properly decided that Mr Lawe could not be guilty of stealing them, and he was therefore discharged.

DESCRIPTION OF A CHANCERY SUIT. BY JACOB DRYASDUST, P.S.A. (From Punch,) A CHANCERY Suit is one that never fits*-it i j always too long and too tight for a defendant' notion of propriety and universal charity ; beside which, there is no credit allowed ; the bill is sen in with the suit-and oh ! what a bill it is ! First of all you receive a " Subpoena" requesting you to meet the Queen withing four days, " a Westminster, or wheresoever else she shall thei be ;'' and Lord Devon is good enough to witnesi that it is all right. You accordingly make inqui ries, and, finding that her Majesty is at Brighton, j proceeded there, firmly believing that she want! to consult you as to the formation of a nen Ministry, or to ask whether a pension would bc j acceptable.
