SONG. By an old Gentleman at a Charity Sale. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844
i SONG. I By an old Gentleman at a Charity Sale. Oh no ! I never purchase them. Their price I've never heard ; My purse is now forbid to pay For toys I can't afford. From booth to booth they hurry me. That bargains I may get, And when they win a pound from me, Tis much to my regret. They tell me to be .buying, now, The gewgaws of the day ; They hint that I should purchase trash, But heed «ot what they say. Perhaps, like me, they never knew With empty purse to fret; Bui, if they buy as I have bought» They never will Jforget. -. ---- ^ ls there a word in the English .language that contains all the vowels? There is-au quisltonabiy. The magnetic power of the compass-needle may be entirely destroyed or changed by being touched with the juice of an onion.
POLICE COURT, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1814. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844
I POLICE COURT, I FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1814, j JAMES WALKER, from BrownhiU Creek, was charged by bis brother-in-law, Donald Cameron, with an assault. It appeared that the parlies had some misunder- standing about a dog, out of which arose a quarrel, which ended in a general shindy, in which both parties received some injury. The defendant was fined £2 and costs. FRANCIS M'CALLUM, who was convicted of illegal distillation on the 22nd of November, and fined in £100, was brought up this morning in charge of the police, by whom he had been taken al the east of the Murray, on his way to Port Phillip. He was ordered to find bail for his appearance to answer a fresh information which has been laid against him-the fine in the former case having been remitted in consequence of an informality in the information.
THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844
t TÍIE PRESS. IN these dull times, the Australians have been electrified by the expansive power of the news- paper press. In Melbourne, a new journal called the Gazetteer has been recently started, for what reason we know not. This journal proposes on the 1st January a daily issue, on account of the mail from Sydney arriving twice in each week, and the old journals, the Patriot, Gazette, and Herald, which are now published twice a-week, also con- template three publications on the same account. In Adelaide, the mania has shewn itself in a more extravagant form. Our friend of the many titles, who conducts the Register has, we presume on ac- count of the arrival of the Hawk, for we can dis- cern no better reason, determined to publish daily, on a sheet half the usual size. Our friend's prin- ciples are certainly extraordinary, and, to 6ay the truth, they are much more candidly expressed than we should, considering their quality, have expected, as the subjoined excerpt from his manifes...
Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844
THE CITY BRIDGE.-We perceive tbat by the notice requiring tenders, parties must make them on the plan of a single arch, and that the span shall be at least 56 feet- The plan of a single arch is, we believe, excellent ; but we should imagine thal more water way than 56 feet will be required. When the present bridge showed symptoms of giv- ing way, we took the liberty to recommend that 12 feet more water way should be gtven, and we are convinced that, if that measure had been adopted, the destruction would not have taken place, or, at all events, would not have been so complete. This will be evident to any one who inspects the nature of the damage done. It will be observed that the foundations, and the bridge itself, in the water way remain firm, but that the banks on each side of the water way have been carried off by the torrent. _ CHAPEL AT KENSINGTON.-A new chapel, was on Sunday, opened at Kensington. The Rev. Mr Longbottom preached in die forenoon, and the Rev. Mr Raining in the ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. j STATS OP PART IBS IX ENGLAND. Ax English correspondent of Murray's RivUw \ thus writes: One of the most remarkable features of the dav ts' the confusion which prevails among all the polit cal j parties. There is, in fact, not a single well-defined, j self-dependent, distinct ly marked political party in j existence ! Lenk at Torvisat, for instance. It hovers on *he confines of democracy, if not *. something more " Lord Ashley, the constitutional Tory, is ¡ supported in Parliament bv Sir ThomasDuncombe, the I Chartist Parliamentary leader; and Dr Cooke, an apostle of the new school of High Churcbisni, plays second fiddle, at public meetings, to Mr Joshua Hobson, an ardent disciple of the ** New Moral World" dot trines of Robert Owen The confusion and creaking up of political parties was most apparent during the l»'e debate on the Ten Hours' Bill.
