VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

VARIETIES. REASTON FOR ACCEPTING THE FIRST OFFER — Every young lady is taught to consider marriage as the great and ultimate end of her life. It is to that she looks forward for happiness, and in which she hopes to rival or excel her associates; and even the first to be married in a family, or court, is a matter of no small consideration. These circumstances plead eloquently in favour of the first lover who makes the dear pro- posal. The female heart is naturally kind and generous — it feels its own weakness, and its inability to encounter singly the snares and troubles of life; and in short, that it must lean upon another, in order to enjoy the delights most congenial to its natural feelings, and emanation to those tender affections, in the exercise of which the enjoyments of the female mind chiefly consist. It is tbus that the hearts of many young women become by degrees irrevocably fixed on those whom they were formerly wont to re- gard with the utmost indifference, if not with c...

MR. HOWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

MR. HOWARD. " A correspondent has called our attention to a sub ject, which we deem it our duty to allude to, though we shall do so as mildly as possible, that we may give an opportunity for any explanation that may be offered. Our correspondent states that in walking along the outskirts of the town the other day, he saw some persons carrying a coffin towards the Cemetery, and though not running with it, yet walking so quickly and so slovenly, that one would have thought they were going to a dance in stead of a funeral. He saw no minister or other official person near, and what was his astonish ment to find that the coffin was put into the earth without a minister present at all ! or any decent ceremony ! Upon enquiry it turned out that Mr. Howard read prayers over the body at the church, and then sent the mourners away to the cemetery, (nearly a mile) to bury the dead like a dog. If this is true, and Mr. Howard can show no very good reason for not aoccompanying the funeral, or bein...

SPECIAL SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

SPECIAL SURVEY. We have the pleasure to learn that W. H. DUT TON, Esq. a gentleman of considerable experience in the colonies, and a large flock holder, has paid £4000 into the Treasury, and claimed a special survey of 4000 acres at Mount Barker. This is a most beautiful district, and the purchase of it by Mr. Dutton is the best proof that could be given of the excellence of the land in our Pro- vince. The Company, we understand, have also paid in £4000, and claimed a special sur-   vey of that splendid spot Lyndoch Valley, situated to the N.W. of Adelaide, at about 25 miles distant, and it is said they have also claimed another survey in right of the thirty   preliminary sections waived for that purpose. Nothing can be more gratifying to all true friends of the colony than such investment. Reports are rife that purchases of land in our Province, to a considerable extent, are expected to be made by New South Wales Stockhold- ers and capitalists during the p...

THE CONGREGATIONALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 16 January 1839

THE CONGREGATIONALISTS. WE mentioned a few weeks since that ground had been presented by J. Brown, Esq , to the Congre- gationalists under the pastoral care of the Rev. Mr. Stow, for the erection of a new chapel. It is with pleasure we learn from an English paper that sub- scriptions have been commenced in London for this object. The next step, already intimated, and also encouraged by many liberal promises, is the open ing of a subscription in the Colony, which we should be glad to see as prompt and handsome as that raised for the Wesleyan Chapel. The follow   ing.advertisement we copy from the paper alluded to, as it will show what is being done at home:- COLONIAL MISSIONS.-SOUTH AUSTRALIA. When the new Colony in South Australia was first proposed, it was deemed desirable to form a com imittee for the purpose of sending out a dissenting   minister. Before any thing could be done, the union of the members of that committee, with others who were especially ...

VARIETIES. TBS QUEEN'S $E|».-The witera pf Buckingham palace, who have an'opportunity of seeing the Queen's bed, and who are accustomed to conclude that royalty and rank must repose on feather beds and downy pillows, wilt be astonished to haye pointed out to them" a small camp bed, with a hard mannus and one small pillow, as the couch of royalty. Yet such is the fact. If ladies generally would follow her example, they would feel the benefit of it in the im provement of their persons and figure, and the uniform flow of health aud spirits it would secure.

THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 23 January 1839

THE NAVY. WE observe the persevering industry with which reports are circulated in journals of a cer- tain class, representing the navy of England as in a state of almost helpless inefficiency. One day we are told that every kind of insult is offered to great Britain, in the consciousness that it may be done with impunity, because the English navy has not the power which it once had to punish such aggressions. Again it is stated, that " the sceptre of the seas is fast de- parting from us,"—that the property of our merchants is seized, and their lawful trade interrupted under every frivolous pretext, the fear of rousing the British lion being no longer an obstacle. England is neither respected or feared, it seems, by foreign states, but is fallen abjectly from the high eminence she once attain- ed as the arbiter of the ocean, to be slighted,   despised, and insulted by every petty power. Moreover, we are told that, she has not half-a- dozen line-of-battle ships fit for c...

THE ZEBRA.   It affords us most sincere pleasure to be enabled to publish the following gratifying testimony of the care and attention of Capt. Hahn, of the Ship Zebra, recently from Hambro' to this colony. So much of the comfort and happiness of passengers depends upon the manner in which the captains of emigrant ships discharge their important duties, that no opportunity   should be lost in testifying the approbation of the colonists wherever so fitting an occasion     shall arise. To the Captain of the Prince George and Capt. Hahn of the Zebra, (both with   emigrants from Germany) great praise is due for their uniform kindness and attention to those committed to their care, and we would suggest   the propriety of the Commissioners granting a   premium to those Captains who bring out emigrants and passengers with safety, and whose Conduct has been so worthy of commendation.
