DIRECTIONS FOR COLLECTING ZOOLOGICAL SPECIMENS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 August 1838

DIRECTIONS FOR COLLECTING ZOOLOGICAL SPECIMENS. THE following Instructions, drawn up at the desire of the Trustees of the British Museum, have little claim to originality. They are compiled from various sources, but principally from Defresne's Taxidermie, Dr Chichester's in- structions, and Samouelle's little work on Col-       lecting and preserving Exotic Insects and Crus- tacea. We consider, however, that we shall be doing our fellow-colonists a service by furnishing them with what we consider a valuable manual of practical taxidermy:—   Mammalia.—The smaller animals of this class may either be skinned or enclosed entire (an in- cision being previously made in the under side of the animal) in jars or barrels, which are to be filled up with some spirituous liquor, as gin, or, what is preferable when it can be procured, proof spirit diluted with half its bulk of water. If no spirit can be had, strong brine must be adopted. In resp...

SMOKING CHIMNIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 August 1838

SMOKING CHIMNIES. THE hints contained in the following paper, extracted from a scientific article in the Encyclopaedia Britannica, may be usefully attended to at a time when so many edifices are in the course of erection :— METHOD OF BUILDING CHIMNEYS THAT WILL NOT SMOKE. Workmen have different methods of drawing up the funnels of chimneys, generally according to their own fancies and judgments, and sometimes according to the customs of places. They are seldom directed by sound and rational principles. It will be found, for the most part, that the smoking   of chimneys is owing to their being carried up narrower near the top than below, or zig-zag, all in angles; in some cases, indeed, it is owing to accidental causes, but, for the most part, to those two above-mentioned. Where they are carried up in the pyramid or tapering form, especially if the house be of a considerable height, it is ten to one but they sometimes smoke. The air in the rooms being rarified, is forced...

BACHELORS' BALL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 August 1838

been done the bachelors, and which, as he amusingly observed, was unexampled; for that he had never before heard of a lady proposing   a toast! nor was such a circumstance handed down in the pages of history. Mr. Jones concluded by proposing the health of the "Ladies of the Province." The ladies called upon his Excellency the Acting Governor to return thanks for them, upon which Mr. Stephen rose and said that, being deputed by the ladies to return thanks, he begged in their name to express their grateful acknowledgments for the very flatter- ing manner in which the toast had been pro- posed and drank. His Excellency added that he was commissioned by the ladies to state that they would be very happy to honor with their presence such an occasion next year; but that after the good example which had been set the bachelors that day [His Excellency alluded to the circumstance of the marriage of Mr. Morphett to Miss Fisher] they would feel great displeasure if any of the gentl...

MR. FISHER'S WITHDRAWAL FROM COUNCIL—LEAVE OF ABSENCE TO THE LATE JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 August 1838

MR. FISHER'S WITHDRAWAL FROM COUNCIL— LEAVE OF ABSENCE TO THE LATE JUDGE. At one of the public meetings last week, assembled to consider the states of the police force, Mr. ex-Resident Commissioner FISHER   thought proper to introduce, as pat to the business in hand, a correspondence between himself and Mr. Stevenson, Private Secretary to Governor Hindmarsh, on the subject of the leave of absence granted to the late Sir John Jeffcott, and to state that his reasons for withdrawing from the Council were to be found in that correspondence — in the par- ticular portion of it, we presume, wherein Mr. Stevenson informs Mr. Fisher 'that his Ex- cellency has no confidence whatever in him.' ' It is not worth while questioning either the taste of exhibiting these letters on such an occasion or the policy of concealing the pre- tended reasons for withdrawing from Council till after Governor Hindmarsh's back was turned. We must take Mr. Fisher's actions as we find them, and ' not l...

BACHELORS' BALL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 18 August 1838

BACHELORS' BALL. On Wednesday evening the Bachelors of Adelaide gave a splendid Ball in honor of the day, being the anniversary of the passing of the Act of Parliament constituting the pro- vince. With a propriety of feeling, which did them honor, the bachelors issued their cards of invitation to the whole circle of their ac- quaintance, without reference to political opinions or private differences. The bachelors had borrowed for the scene of   festivity the new and capacious stores lately   erected in Flinders-street, where the company began to pour in soon after nine o'clock. The stewards, the Hon. Mr. Bernard, Messrs. Gilbert, J.P., Jones, J.P., Hill, Hancock, J.   Fisher, Allen, &c., had made the most ad- mirable arrangements for the reception of their guests. A tent was erected outside the entrance door for the retiring room of the ladies; and   the great length of the store was divided off into a suite of four rooms ...

THE TIMOR PONEY SPECULATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 25 August 1838

THE TIMOR PONEY SPECULATION. OUR readers know that the Commissioners have positively refused to sanction Mr. Fisher's Timor Poney job, and that their Treasurer has declined to honor the bills drawn by that person for their cost. Yet, to save appearances, the seven survivors of 119 of these poor animals   were brought to the hammer, "by order of the Commissioner," on Saturday, and realised, it is said, nearly £150—within a few pounds, we suppose, of what is due for their "keep" since     they were landed from the Lord Hobart. Giving Mr. Fisher, however, the full benefit of the sum mentioned, the account stands thus:—   Expences of purchase, &c., and freight as charged by Mr. David McLaren... £2600 1 6 Produce as above 150 0 0 £2450 1 6 "Who suffers?"

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 25, 1838. PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE TO THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 25 August 1838

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 25, 1838. PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE TO THE MURRAY. WE learn that the entrance to Lake Alexan-   drina and the River Murray from the sea has recently been thoroughly explored by Captain Gill, late of the Fanny, and found to be a perfectly safe and practicable entrance, having upwards of three fathoms on the bar at the shallowest part, and about seven fathoms outside and an equal depth inside the channel. Captain Gill passed out and in on several oc- casions without difficulty in a small boat or dingey, there being at high water no breakers whatever in the fair way, and scarcely a tide ripple. He considers it an easy and per- fectly safe entrance for vessels of moderate tonnage, and there is room and depth of water inside for the British navy. For steam boat navigation the passage, under any cir- cumstances, is practicable; and this fact alone is most important, as ensuring the direct communication from sea with the ...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."?—SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 25 August 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."—SHAKSPEARE. THE BEGGAR'S MORNING SOLILOQUY.-(From the German of Starke). —It is a fine bright morning and I must set out on my day's work. The crows are already flying in a thick cloud over the city. Poor creatures! you, too, are but poorly off; you seem to me like the beggars among the birds, and the peasant lies in wait for you as the constable does for us. What can those poor things find to live upon now that the earth is so hard frozen ? and what can the poor beggar find to live upon? for it is a question if there are more beggars or more crows in the world. The beggars do not flock together so peaceably as the birds or the swarm would be just as great. Fly on poor despised crows! I love you; ye wing your way so sociably and free from strife. The good God will provide your   meal—aye, and the hungry beggars' too; for sure a beggar is as worthy as a crow! Oh, well-a-day ! how it grieves me to be obliged to be...

THE SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 25 August 1838

THE SURVEY. WE revert to this important subject with great reluctance. But mismanagement has done its worst. Even Mr. Fisher, in his own person or by his tools, can do no further wrong to his trust and but little additional injury to the colony. The investment of the powers of the Crown and of the Commissioners in the person of Colonel Gawler ensures an end to the present wretched blundering; while, amid the bitter complaints that are every where to be heard, we discern in that fact some degree of consolation for those whose means have been exhausted and whose hopes have been destroyed by the ignorance, improvidence and folly of the individual whose chief duty it was to pro- tect them from the very evils they have most endured. The undivided authority of the new Governor—not likely to be exercised in the dark for selfish or sinister purposes, or at all without the concurrence of his council—will secure that unity of purpose essential to the harmonious working of the system, while it...
