The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1844. THE REAPING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
ADELAIDE : FRIDAY. DSCBMBM 20, 1844. THE REAPING MACHINE. THIS wonderful production of South Australian genius and skill having now tor some time this season been in successful operation, and having again personally inspected it while at work, we, think a few further particulars respecting it may not be unacceptable to our readers, and to the friends of the colony at a distance. There is nothing more striking about this machine than ita extreme simplicity. It consists of a row of spikes or teeth fixed horizontally to a frame work of the width of two or three feet, placed upon wheels - the teeth being by an apparatus elevated or de. pressed, according to the height of the crop, so as to catch the ears. Over the spikes, and nearly touching them, is placed the drum of the thrashing machine, which knocks off the ears and thrashes them as they are caught by the teeth. The power used in moving the machine forward also drives the thrashing apparatus, so that the standing corn ts thus reape...

Select Poetry. A FAREWELL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
¿elect $oetrg. A FAREWELL. Farewell ! I leave ye ! That setting san to me no more will rise ; And when the lark har matin song is singing, And the green hills with jocund sounds are ringing, And morning op« the flowers' dew-bespangling eyes, j This heart will be | Unconscious of that joy. Through every tree The iouth winds may her fairy finger« run, Till each breathes living music-and the sun May woo the flowers, and kiss the murmuring brook ; Bat on those glories i no more may look ! When eve comes on, And when, the gun's last glow, last fading ray, Hath melted from the sky, ye will be bending In silent grief o'er what ye now are tending With gentle love :-the spirit fled away, I shall be gone Life's sufferings o'er, its sins and sorrows done. When round the world night's sable curtains close. To win earth's weary children to repose, And wrap them in sweet slumber-gift Divina ! But night's deep shadows will not deepen mine. ¿nd must I then Forget the love; true love, that biassed m...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
EDUCATION. WE subjoin a statistical account of the state of Education in Melbourne, which place appears to be comparatively highly favored in référença to the means of instruction. According to the last census there are nearly 5000 children in this colony of the age at which they commonly attend school. We are greatly afraid that not more than onofoartb are receiving school instruction. This isa «tate of matters which demands the serions attention of every one who has the inte- rest of his adopted country at heart : SCHOOL STATISTICS.-Agreeably to the regulations established by the Government for aiding and con- ducting public education in the colony, the teachers attached to the schools of the undermentioned denoouV nations in Melbourne, have forwarded to the Cleric of the Bench their returns for the quaiter ending 30th.

EXTRAORDINARY PROCEEDINGS AT CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
EXTRAORDINARY PROCEEDINGS AT CON- STANTINOPLE. ON the 28th March the Porte put into execution one of those sudden and arbitrary measures not unfrequent in the East, but which in European countries would probably endanger the very ex- istence of the government. When the post left on the afternoon of the 27th, nothing was known of the steps which were to be taken on the followiug day. Towards the evening public criers went through the streets of Constantinople and its suburbs, ordering all Mussulmans to re- pair early next morning to the mosque, where an imperial hatti sheriff was to be read, the pur- port of which affected materially the inhabitants of the capital, and at the same time advising the Christians to keep within their doors till the afternoon. These forewarnings caused a general alarm, both amongst the Rayahs and the Frank population. They were supposed to be con- nected with the important question which had lately agitated the Porte, and the solution of which had created...
THE PEEL MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
i THE PEEL MINISTRY. I TN answer to the question which has been sneer- ingly put by aa opposition print, " What have Ministers done this session of Parliament ?" the Morning Herald makes the following reply : 1. Ministers have carried through parliament the largest and most hazardous financial operation attempted since the close of the war-namely, the reduction of the per cents., whereby au imme- diate saving of upwards of £600,000 a-year has bee effected, and an easy saving of £1,250,000 annually ensured. 2. Ministers have, amidst almost universal ap- plause, introduced, and are now triumphantly carrying through the legislature, a measure of cur- rency improvement, which, by placing the circula- tion on a firm basis, must tend to steady prices, and must prevent monetary cries. 3. Ministers have carried a measure which will give to the consumer an abundant supply of cheap sugar, and to the revenue at least £800,000 a-year, without stimulating the slave trade, or withdrawing protecti...

MR. THOMAS CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
MR. THOMAS CAMPBELL. THE subjoined account of the above illustrious poet, has, through accident, lain over. But we insert it, because wo have no doubt that many of our readers will peruse with interest this brief memoir of a mau, who has, perhaps, more than any modern poet, won the heartfelt respect and affection, of ali who are familiar with hts wri- tings : and who is not ? This distinguished man-the most classical of our recent poets-died at Boulogne on Saturday last. Time was. when such an announcement would not have been made without its prelude of lamentation ; but as years advance, we feel that such bereavements have a solemnity too deep for the oft repeated language of regret. Mr. Campbellv ^« 4en*'and youngeit child of his parents, was born at Glasgow on the 27th of July, 1777- His father was a retired mer- chant; as the name imports, of old Highland family ; and, according to testimony, an inte li gent and cultivated man. The sou of his age (for Thomas was born when he was...
CANADA VERSUS AUSTRALIA. [HOBART TWON ADVERTISER.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
CANADA VERSUS AUSTRALIA. ! [nOBABT TOWN ADVERTISER.! IN a late number we gave a paragraph from the London Standard, on the subject of the Canada Land Company's modes of disposing of their lands in that country. The facts therein stated appear to us to be worthy of being brought more promi- nently before our readers. It would seem that, until last year, the practice of the company had been to dispose of its lands by sale only-one-fifth of the purchase money being paid down. The happy thought was then enter- tained that, by granting leases, without any money being paid down, a more effective encouragement might be given to the immigration of industrious persons possessed of small capital. The plan was tried, and proved eminently successful. The number of acres sold-in the year ended 22nd of November, 1843-at prices averaging from Us lld to 13s 6d per acre, and the number leased within the same period, were respectively as follows : Acres. Sold . 18,977 Leased . 132,295 The proportion ...
THE FRENCH IN ALGIERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
THE FRENCH IN ALGIERS. THE Semaphore de Marseilles of the 4th July publishes a letter- from Algiers of the 30th ult., stating that all the disposable forces of the province were being sent to the western frontier of the Re- gency. The Labrador, steam frigate, sailed on the 27th for Oran, with two battalions of infantry. Another steamer, also laden with troops, had pro- ceeded the Labrador, and the Tenare, Cocylet Acheron, and Castor were to put to sea on the 30th and 31st, with men and provisions. The steam-corvette Cuvier arrived at Algiers iron} Oran on the morning of the 30?h, but brought no news.

FLORA MACDONAID. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844
I FLORA MACDONAIV. I TT is recorded by Mr Chambers, in his History j of the Rebellion of 1745, that this celebrated ! woman, after her liberation from confinement, for having aided the escape of the young Pre- tender, *? was received into the house of the Dowager Lady Primrose, where she was visited by crowds of the fashionable world, who paid her such bornage as wopld have turned the heads of ninety-nine of a hundred women of any age, country, or condition. On her mind they produced no effect but that of surpiise. She had only, she thought, "performed an act of eorowonhnninflily ;" and the author adds* "Lord Mahon mentions, but I do not know upon what authority, that a subscription to the amount of £1500 was raised for , her in London." Within the last few months, letters (addressed to Mr Thomas Clerk, merchant, London, and which ! had been previously sold as waste paper Î ! !) have fallen into my hands, throwing some light on the subject of the subscription alluded to, and as any ...
