AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 January 1839

-                 AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.   On all hands it is allowed that South Australia will derive the greater portion of her wealth and prosperity from her superior capabitities as a pasture country. We may therefore soon expect to see her hills and plains covered with sheep and cattle of the first rate description ; and indeed the show that is in this way already made is quite astonishing. Our wool will shortly occu- py a conspicuous place in the home market, while the surplus produce of our dairies will find its wayinto the neighbouring colonies. If such are our prospects ought we not immediately to take those measures which will have the best tendency to ensure proper attention to the   breeding of sheep and cattle, in order that our produce may be superior, as well in quality as in quantity ? Sure ly we ought ; and we deem   it a grea...

Original Correspondence. TO ROWLAND HILL, ESQ. Adelaide, 4th January, 1639. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 January 1839

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE   . . TO ROWLAND HILL, ESQ. Adelaide, 4th January, 1839.   DEAR HILL.--I sent you the other day, a letter by the " Pest O. G.," but I am sorry to find the paper here has printed it: surely the " Pest O. G." must have lost her mail,or I must have dropped my letter by mistake. I hope however you will get it, because you would be so delighted with its contents. Friend Y. & Z. ( who wrote the last letters) wrote me about you a day or two back, and I enclose a copy of his letter (No. 1) for your satisfaction.   I am sorry to tell you the Governor here is not getting on so capitally in great things as in small.   He has not yet ordered the new and really econo mic government house; I don't know why, but I suppose because he finds it is only four times as big as the one at Sydney, and is to cost three times as much, and he thinks perhaps that as that is a convict colony he ought to have a better house still...

(Enclosure No. 1.) [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 9 January 1839

(Enclosure No.1 :)       MY DEAR P's & Q's - It must have been very unpleasant to your feelings to have   seen yourself in print in your letter to Mr. Hill, - bad luck, say I, to the dirty blackguard who could be guilty of so gross a breach of confidence. But, however, there you are sure enough, open for the comments of friends and enemies ; amongst the former of whom I beg you will class me. You are aware; my dear fellow, that tho sins of omission aro as great as those of commission. In enumerating the pians of economy pursued hp-re, you forgot t» mention that the Commissary-Commissary ! ! (is'ní U a grand name, and won't it excito the *2n~? of the neighbouring colonies, to think wc iiuvo j such great mon here) of the survey d<*pa rimant, j has. a-clerk who receives £l(X) per annum- a^il do think if you were to meet-that gentlemen oßtr j dinner-, or in a communicative mood, and asked .' him what the commissary h...

RURAL CALENDAR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

RURAL. CALENDAR. ': JANUARY.- Io Australia the month of January holds the 6ame position with respect to tjie seasons as the month of July in the northern hemisphere, but as the climate of South Australia, from a variety of circumstances is rendered peculiarly salubrious, the vegetable produce of the colony conies quicker to maturity than in colder countries; bencel January is generally the season for getting io the wheat har vest. This crop secured, the farmer will find it advantageous to glean his fields by turning his swine into them. Should he happen to have broken up ground during the preceding spring forithe pur pose of sowing wheat, it ought to be ploughed, either during harvest or immediately after-he ought also to clear his maize crop. Such land as is designed to rear turnips should be reduced to a fine rich soil by pulverization and an ample supply of manure, and the growing crop of swedish turnips shjould be re-hoed ; the potatoe ground should also be j cleaned and the pla...

ANSWER. Gentlemen-I beg you will accept my thanks for the congratulations you were sp kind as to offer on my arrival in this province. Among the many subjects which in the commencement of my government call fer my, serious considera tion, the religious and moral «interests of the inhabitants claim and will receive my earliest attention; and it will ever afford me sincere gratification to co-operate with the various de nominations of Christians in extending the bles sings of religion and useful education through out the province, believing, as I do, that by these means the happiness and prosperity of a ¡people may be most effectually promoted. j Your allusion to the Kev.

TAE TURNIP FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

TAE TOEKIP FEY. ' AFTER the numberless trials to prevent the ravages of the turnip fly, the only way which £ found at all successful is to collect all the weeds 1 can on the farm, and lay them in heaps all round the field sown with turnips ; on the plants coming up, and showing the least appearance of being attacked by the fly, the heaps to .windward are set on fire, and thus the strong smoke, which is very of fensive to the insect, is wafted over the crop. If this is continued till the turnip get into rough leaf, they will be safe; but if befóte this the the process is stopt for five or six hours together, in a fly working day, the crop most likely will be lost; therefore Í have not hesitated on a Sunday to have the fires lighted before the morning, and also before the afternoon service. When, ' some years ago, I mentioned roy smokîng-ây preventive scheme, after dinner, at our Society's annual meeting, j got a little smoked myself; but having had, lastyear, a full crop of swedes, v...

LAMB'S WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

j LAMB'S WOOL. I % THE per-usai of an article In the Farmer's Ma gazine, " on the improvement of British wool, has suggested tlie possibility of our sa) in] something, that may be of service to those c our flockmasters who shear their lambs. The wool of a lamb is much more unequa titan that of the full grown animal ; indeed, tb fleece is fairly susceptible of being divided int< wool and hair. The wool, however, which is o great fineness, occupies by far the greater por tion of the surface, whilst the hair is confine* to the hocks and shanks, and point of weight ; t» iu9t«^d««Uc. Yet it is usual to Shear th. whole, and to intermix the various qualities ii one bale, to the damage of the manufacturer and, it ia needless to say, as this fact is duly al lowed for in the purchase, to the loss of th« growers-it mnst be evident that once inter mingled, the wool and. hair can never after b< completely separated ; for lamb's wool, owing : we presume, to an imperfect deve...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. SIR,-I see by a public notice issued by the gentlemen acting as a Board of Assistant Commis sioners, that His Excellency the Resident Commis sioner has directed the special survey of 15,000 acres in the District of Mount Barker to be com menced immediately, in order that 14000 acres may be selected therefrom by Mr. Dutton, by virtue of the payment of £4000 made by hi m.

CHEMISTRY OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

CHEMISTRY OF AGRICULTURE. SIR H, DAVY, in a lecture on this subject remarks, that " Agriculture, to which w *. owe our.means of subsidence, is an art ii>t:niaielv connected with chemic*! scienc*; for, although the common sod of the earth will produce vegetable food, yet it can only be made to produce it in the greatest quantity, and of the best quality, by methods of cultivation dependent upon scientific principle-;. The knowledge of the composition of soils, cf the food of vegetables, of the modes in which their products must be treated so as to become fit for the nourishment of animals is evsemiul :o the cultivator of land ; and his exertions are profit able and useful to society in proportion as he is more of a chemical professor.
