THE FOOD OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 June 1825
/THE FOOD OF'TMAN. No animal eats stfch variety of food as man ; he claims, more justly than 'any other creature, the title of, omnivo) oits ' for since he is distinguished beyond 'ail animals, by. the capability of Ur ine in the most distant parts of ibcclubc, under_every variety of climate wJacU tne-,earuv attortls, ins-, lootu couumoc-pc'coniineu exclusively to either the vegetable or animal kingdom, because he inhabits regions that afford aliments widely different from -each other. Patjle content themselves with green Vbge tables ; rapacious animals live on flesh of the other creatures. The hare, 'labbit, guinea pig, &c, live on grain and fruit* ; each order of birds keeps, in the same manner, to one sort of food, animator vegetable, fishes, reptiles, aijd insects, also, have each their- peculiar arfd exclusive bill o£fare, beyond which oven hunger will scarcely force them to wonder.

CASTLE BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 June 1825
*. CASTLE BUILDING. ' This delightful exercise of the mind fills up our moments of unemployment, annihilates ennui, anil imparts a fictitious but palpable happiness in hours which else would be replete with sorrow; It Hcbtens the burden of livine— -uives a zest to labour —promotes virtue: — soothes the passions — calms'cxcess— quiets uneasiness — gives the .pleasures without the madness of dissipa tion, and Spreads a. placid equanimity through the disposition. It create* bright visions which have no termination or bounds — the prospect ^lows brighter the longer, we imagine, arid the more we paint, and when we wake from it to sense again, the hope and j-ereiiily it lias inspired quiets fears, and lulls' to rest all dread of dHappoinln.ent.

Ihe spider was of the common house sort, and not uncommonly large. When first discovered, the.Iittle insect had raised his victim about half a foot from the floor, and had hung him by a single thread. — The iagenuity and power of this spider were truly wonderful. Passing rapidly down his liua, he would fasten his cordage round the- neck of the snake, pass back to his own nest on the under - surface of the bench, then going again down, 'cast a hitcli' nround the tail, and returning to his nest would avail himself of the contortions of the snake, alternately hauling up his lines so as to bring his game nearer home.
