RISE IN THE VALUE OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 September 1838

RISE IN THE VALUE OF LAND. THE sales of town and country land daily taking place indicate encreasing confidence in our prosperity. The following is a statement of bona fide sales lately made:— The town acre in Weymouth-street, 183, which cost £7 in March, 1837, was sold in the September following for 35 guineas. It was again sold last month for £150, and resold im- mediately for £200. No 192 in same street was sold a fortnight ago for £300. In Hindley-street the acre No. 77, was lately sold in halves for £225. One half of No. 75,   almost adjoining, sold in August for £275. On half-acre in same street, No. 57, was lately purchased for £50, and has just been rented at the same sum per annum for ten years. One half acre, 302, in Wakefield-street, sold   in August for £200, and one-third of an acre in Grenfell-street, purchased at the same time for £200, has since been divided, and one-half of this third sold fof £200 or £250. A block of eight acres on the Eas...

DINNER TO CAPTAIN STURT?— NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 September 1838

DINNER TO CAPTAIN STURT— NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. WE have great pleasure in directing public attention to the speech delivered by Captain Sturt at the dinner given to welcome his ar-   rival in the colony. If the hopes we had en- tertained of any immediately available water communication by means of the Murray and its tributaries with the western districts of the New South Wales territory be somewhat damped by the announcement that beyond the north-western bend of the river serious impe-   diments to such navigation exist, some com- pensation may be found in the fact that such impediments are not considered insurmount- able; and that the improvements in the con-   struction of steam-vessels—especially in les- sening their draught of water—may ultimately overcome the difficulty we understand to be apprehended by Captain Sturt, and that during certain seasons of the year at least the passage may be made. The steam-boats used in some of the small...

DIRECTIONS FOR COLLECTING AND PRESERVING PLANTS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES FOR A HERBARIUM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 September 1838

DIRECTIONS FOR COLLECTING AND PRESERVING PLANTS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES FOR A HERBARIUM. THIS is a much simpler process than is generally imagined by those unpractised in it, and travellers have been often deterred from collecting speci-   mens by the time and trouble required for pre- paring them in the way that has by many been recommended. The chief circumstances to be attended to are to preserve specimens of plants in such a manner that the moisture may be quickly absorbed, the colors as much as possible preserved, and such a degree of pressure given to them as that they may hot curl up in the act of drying. For this purpose let a quantity of separate sheets of paper be obtained of a folio size. Common brown paper is, upon the whole, the best, except for the very delicate kinds which require paper of a smoother and somewhat more absorbent texture.   Blotting paper, however, especially in warmer climates, would absorb the moisture too rapidly; and, by repea...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY'S BANK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 September 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY'S BANK. IT is impossible for us to describe the disgust which the colonial management of this es-   tablishment is exciting among all classes of the community. Its twenty per cent. extortions on the one hand, and its pawnbroking propensities on the other, are fast working out a result the proprietary in England will be the first to suffer from, and the rival establishment about to commence business to reap the benefit of. The directors may be tickled for a time by balance sheets exhibiting favorable results; but we are widely mistaken if, in these instances, figures and facts be found ultimately to cor- respond. Unjustifiable squandering of the Company's monies in one direction—wretched parsimony in another—and ignorant blundering in all, form the prominent characteristics of the colonial management of the South Austra- lian Company. Add to this its best servants complaining of ill-treatment and leaving it in dudgeon—a great proportion complaini...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."-SHAKSPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 September 1838

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records."—SHAKSPEARE.   CURE FOR A MADMAN.— Burton, in his Anatomy of Melancholy, thus gravely prescribes for the cure of that kind of madness which he terms head melancholy: There is no denying the fact that one mouth in the head is not sufficient for the evaporation of the humours of a madman's brain—daily, hourly, incessant though they be. We, however, agree with the Paduan professor as to their muddy consistency proving an obstacle to the infallibility of the remedy; nevertheless the hint in certain cases may not be without its use to the profession:— Cauteries and hot irons are to be used in the suture of the crown, and the seared or ulcerated place suffered to run a good while. It is not amiss to bore the skull with an instrument to let out the fuliginous vapours, (Sallust Silvianus de re Medic.) because this humour hardly yields to other   physic, would have the head cauterized, or the left leg below t...

BLUNDERS OF THE SURVEY-TITLE TO THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 15 September 1838

BLUNDERS OF THE SURVEY-TITLE TO THE LAND. THE statement of our correspondent Observer regarding the errors of the trigonometrical survey has called forth an explanation from Mr. FINNISS, who, as the preux Chevalier of the party, has shown himself ready, on all occasions, to do battle on their behalf. Now, though we differ from Mr. Finniss on almost every point, and think that the dawdling of the preliminary survey of country land from its commencement is without excuse or palliation, still we like the manliness he displays in frankly admitting the blunder, charged against the party, and the readiness   with which he gives the best explanation of them in his power. That our readers may be possessed of the merits of the case we transcribe that portion of Observer's communication particularly alluded to by Mr. Finniss. It is as follows: — I believe I am correct in asserting that none of the preliminary sections which have been carefully measured off have been found correct...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. "Trivial fond records." —SHAKSPEARE.   THE merriment of fools makes men of sense melancholy. CHARACTER OF THE FRENCH.—The following sketch of the French character, whether original or not, has, at all events, been published by a Frenchman, which is so far an admission of its truth:—"The French have discovered or invented   the art of uniting the two extremes; they have at the same time virtues and vices which appear the most incompatible. They are a compound of strength and weakness; they may be called effeminate, although they are brave; false, yet men of honor, but with finesse; splendid without being generous; soldiers, yet refined in their   manners, possessing sufficient qualities to merit praise, without, however, being virtuous; serious   in trifles; gay in all their operations and under-   takings; women at the toilette, heroes on the   field of battle; corrupt, y...

THE COLONIAL REGISTER. SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 22, 1838 MR. MANN "IN EXPLANATION." UNMINDFUL, of a well-known proverb first put by Aristophanes into the month of one of his wags—the erudite editor of Mr. Fisher's paper has ventured to return to the mire; and, after writhing through two mortal columns, has succeeded in plunging himself only so much deeper into the unenviable mess into which we dropt him. It will be impossible henceforth   even to look at his dirty rag without a finger to the nose. Let us examine for a moment the plight of the poor creature. Our readers know that it has been a trick of the gang of which he is the tool to charge the Gazette, " supported by government influence and advertisements," with systematic slander and falsehood. This being but the every-day cant of knaves who, conscious of roguery, dare not grapple with facts, has been but little re- garded by as or the public. The charges made in this journal have had nothing indistinct or dubious about...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 22 September 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMPANY. THE fishing station on Thistle Island, at the mouth of Spencer's Gulf, the establishment of which has been the subject of so much congratulatory fanning by the manager and "his retained legal adviser, " has been   abandoned by the men before the season was     half over! The whalers complained of   STARVATION; the beef was said to be rotten, and the biscuit such as hungry pigs would   loathe. The men, therefore, refused to re- main in such employment and escaped. Here, then, is another dead loss of from       two to three thousand pounds to the Com- pany, and a fresh instance of the admirable   mis-management of the commercial depart-     ment. Our recent exposure of the Bank pro- ceedings have been the means of obtaining numerous additional instances of the pitiful system under which it is conducted. Many of those, ...

THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register — 22 September 1838

THE REGATTA. ON Friday the 14th instant " the lovers of aquatic sports" —those rash persons who tempt their fate upon the watery element — were gratified by Captains Hart of the Porcher and Cook of the Eden with the novel spectacle of boat racing, which these hospitable gentlemen had got up for   the amusement of their "shore-going" friends. The numerous shipping now lying in our port   were dressed out in their gayest flags,a dn boats full of merry spectators were seen gliding about   in every direction; while a gentle breeze subdued the rays of a bright sun and fluttered the gay ribbons of the ladies to their full contentment. A large party of the elite of Adelaide having been invited on board the Henry Porcher, soon   after eleven o'clock his Excellency the Acting Governor Stephen, with a large party of ladies and gentlemen, left the shore, and was received with a salute of eleven guns from that armed vessel. The superior pullin...
