SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 20 December 1839
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have South Australian papers to the 29th of last month. Distillation was about to be put down, and the propriety, as well as policy, of the measure had excited some discussion, not on ac- count of any vested interests that would be perilled thereby, but in consequence of the pros- pect which South Australia affords to the specu- lative eye, of becoming one day a country rich in corn and wine. The South Australian lie g ister recommends an ad valorem duty upon imports, and calculates a clear income at the rate of 5 per cent, of near £20,000 a-ycar. A duty has been imposed upon the calling of auctioneers, whereat the worthy knights of the hammer aro somewhat indignant, stating that if the other professions aro taxed, they will have no objection to be taxed, but that they have every objection to being Binglcd out from among the rest as victims. Taxation and Legislation.-But it is most especially proper that we should give our ideas on what we have termed "the legiti...

Cor Courier» THURSDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 26,1839. ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THB following is the last of the string of re- solutions moved in the House of Lords by Lord ¡Brougham, and carried by a considerable majority, to the great discomfiture of the Ministry. They were meant to reflect on the Irish Ad- ministration of Lord Normanby; and the evidence taken before the Committee of the House of Lords, particularly that of Lord Chief Justice Doherty, would go to prove that the prerogative 'Of mercy had been abused to an alarming ex- tent, the Lord Lieutenant having, in his gaol delivering tour, freed no less than 53 prisoners from the ?jraol of Clonmel, without any express recommendation from any party but the gaoler, many of whom have been tried and convicted for offences committed subsequent to their release.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 December 1839
'? ? III' TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sia, Although by the marked advancement of the medical science-by the superior attention to, and knowledge of, diseased alterations in the human body, practitioaers of that science are now a-days enabled to remedy many diseases, by means simple and easy of application, which formerly were conceived removable only by severe and dangerous operations, yet cases do occur in which surgical operations are unavoidable ; one in particular, the removal of the jaw bone for osieosarcoma has only, during the last few years, been considered safe or useful, yet it is by this means only that the life of tho unfortunate victim of that disease can be saved. Having had an opportunity of wit- nessing one of the most fearful of these cases this morn- ing, I send you a report of it, and if the details thereof are not interesting to many of your readers, yet the know- ledge that the colony is in possession of a gentleman who ' is competent to perform one of the mos...

MISCELLANEOUS. I possessed at this lime but one book io ths world ; ft was a treatise on algebra, given to me by a young woman who found it in a lodging-house. I con- sidered it as a treasure, but it was a treasure locked up ; for it supposed the reader to be well acquainted with simple equations, and I knew nothing of the matter. Sly master's son had purchasedTenning's Introductions ; this was precisely what I wanted hut he carefully concealed it from me, and Ii was indebted to chance alone for stumbling on his birling, plnce. I sat up for the greater part of several nights successively, und before he suspected that his treatise was discovered, had completely mastered it. I could now enter upon my own, and that carried me pretty far into the sciences. This was not done wit mut difficulty. I had not a farthing on earth, nor a fi end to give me one ; peu, ink, and paper, therefore, (in les pite of the flippant remark of Lord Orford,) wen for the most part as completely ont of my reac...
