THE CAVERNS NEAR SPRING BAY. RIVER TAMAR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 December 1844

THE CAVERNS NEAR SPRING BAY. RIVER TAMAR. ON Friday last several gentlemen left town in the Gipsy, to examine the cavern near Spring Bay, respecting which some information has already appeared. It is situated on the hill, about a mile from the edge of the water, and is near a range of basaltic rocks which rise to a considerable height. The entrance to the cavern is rather romantic-trees surround the mouth, and lichens hang from the rock. A sure foot and strong arm might descend and climb up again with safely, but the unpractised will find it necessary to employ a rope in reaching the first landing place, which is about fourteen feet from the surface. From this point the descent is steep. Large quantities of soil have been washed down, and it is intermixed with detached pieces of rock which the slighest force is suffi- cient to set in motiou. Unless great care is exercised ¡ti descending, the loose soil slips from under the feet aud large stones roll down and endanger the safety of p...

THE EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844

THE EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY. " It is that knowledge which, trampling down in ¡ts progress the dominion of brutal force, and giving lo tntelfrct its just ascendancy, has at length become die master power of the world. No person can now be dis- tinguished, or prosperous, or truly great, but by the diffusion cf knowledge ; and, in the stirring competition of the roused spirits of our times, the first glory and lae highest success mast-be assigned to the best educated nation."-BIDDLE. It is humiliating that, in Che middle of the nineteenth century, a community of Britons 6 should be found who are unwilling lo co-operate for the education of the rising generation, while, by all civilised nations, it is treated aa an object of the first importance ; and the truth is gaining ! ground that a lowly school-room, where children have learned truth, isa more glorious monument than all the castles or palaces of the past, and that none but the teacher, the guide of men, de- serve« the highest honor, w...

RACING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844

RACING. A. match, between. "Odipus" and "Skyrocket," for £10 a-side, came off yesterday morning on the race-course ; and, from the circumstance of both horses being entered for the coming races (the winner for the Hack, and the grey for the Produce Stakes), excited much interest.

" Skyrocket," 3 yrs..(Reeves) *2 "Odipus" is an overlander, and, however much blood he may possess, is certainly of thc genus " daddy long legs." " Skyrocket" is by " Abdallah." At starting, the grey, closely waited on by the bay, took the lead, which he kept for quite half a mile, when " Odipus" headed him, and won by about a couple of lengths. The time (2 minutes and 4 seconds), will prove the severity of the pace. A second match between two ponies came off afterwards, which was won by Mr Dawson's pony.

She had torn the bows out of her antagonist's cap, and finally cut her severely with a knife. " Su rely,"observed the Magistrate facetiously, " such a belle as you can never waut a beau ! " .(Laughter.) " An* sure, your honour, isn't Sow-street the very place to come to for one ?" (Roars of laughter.) You are not at a loss for an answer, I see ! " " Nor nobody need be here, your honour, that can say Bo to a goose." (Shouts of laughter.) " You deserve the bow-string for your impu- dence ! But we must try what a few weeks in Newgate will do." 44 That's a New-gait to me, your honour, and a very awkward gate too.
