EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
EDUCATION. XO THE EDITOB OF THE SOUTH ATJSTKA.LIA.2f. SIB-The exhortation of "P.B.P.,'* which ap- peared in your paper of 24th instant, is calculated I to impress upon the people of England the opinion ¡that good education is unattainable in Adelaide, ¡and most of the remarks which have been pub- lished on the subject of a proprietary school have had a simdar tendency. Perhaps this misrepresentation may be refuted by simply stating that, in addition to many other schools, there is now in Adelaide one conducted by a person who instructed the children of several of those whom '* P. B. P." calls ** the merchant princes of Liverpool ; " and, among these, the daughters of William Brown, Esq., the chief of I those princes. Consequently, Adelaide now pos- sesses the same means of instruction that those princes possessed seven or eight years ago. Why then should our worthy citizens be al- luded to in the insulting terms of the lamentation of " P. B. P. ? " " lt is humiliating ! " Oh, yes ; ...
Correspondence. TO THE REV. MR. W. BULPITT, ESQ. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
TO THE REV. ¡>¡R. W. BULPIÍT. ESQ. RESPECTABLE SIR--As a public man, and an old citizen of the young city of Adelaide (if a bishop with a cathedral in posse, and a municipality in neither that or the other condition establish a claim to such a title), as a distinguished colonist of South Australia, in short, I address you on a subject of vital importance to the community. You read the newspapers regularly, and there- fore may have observed that it is customary for the leading men of the city to distinguish themselves i from the common herd by various additions to their i patronymics, intended to denote their rank and property. It has been remarked as extraordinary , by your admirers that one so eminently entitled to ! direct public opinion should not have made his ap- : pearance with any of the dignified appendages which others, having no better right, unscrupu- lously seize upon. The purpose of this letter is to ] remonstrate against longer forgetfulness of what is ' due to soci...

THE REAPING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
THE REAPING MACHINES. WE lately mentioned that Mir Coutts* machitie, which was constructed upon the cutting principle^ wa« understood to have failed, and that he in- tended to alter it according; to Mr Ridley's plan. Having recently seen this excellent machine at work, we are enabled to give particulars regard- ing it which we doubt not will be interesting to ', our readers. This machin« is of an unusually . large size, being about sir and a half feet ia . 1 width. The row of teeth to front is «ix feet four inches in length. Beneath the teeth was origi- nally placed a knife, to which was given aa oscillating movement to cut the ear« when seized* by th« teeth, and a «mall drum is placed imme- diately over the teeth to drive the ear« into the body of the machine. The newer ia applied by leather belts with the aid of a fly-wheel. The machine is propelled by two horses. There were* two principal difficulties, beside« the inexperience of both drivers and horses, with which Mr Coutts had ...
BANKING.—FINANCIAL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
BANKING.-FINANCIAL PROSPECTS. I We believe it is generally admitted that whet* ' no speculative mania prevails, the circulation of the banks may be regarded as the best criterion by which tn judge of the monetary condition of a community. In this vic w we have made some enquiry respecting the circulation of our banks for a considerable period during the present sea- son, as compared with that during the same period last year, anti find the following; result :-At the end of last year the average circulation of the banks was £10-675. The average circulation foi the same period of the present y ear is £13,835. au increase of no less than 38 per cent. The increase of circulation since the wool season commenced during the present year is still more surprising:, bavins: been in one of the banks up- wards of £2,000 ! The improvement in the settlers'accouots, but particularly in those of the sheep farmers, ha» been io the highest degree satisfactory, and we believe they are generally in a m...

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
CHRKTAiAS.-^-Merry Christmas was a very sober quiet day in Adelaide, more like a Sunday than any we have seen for some time. Many of the citizens went a pic-nicing into the country, and we can only hope they enjoyed themselves, without venturing to believe it, for the day was one of such extreme heat, that the most likely way to endure it was by burrowing underground rather than by gal- livanting-to wit,roasting in the sun. A few remem- j bered the solemnity of the great anniversary br at- i tending Church. STOBAGB AT THE POET.-It is generally thought that a very large export of wheat will take place j early this season, both for London and for the j neighbouring colonies. Any shipment for Sydney t should be made immediately before the harvest j commences in Van Diemen's Land, and to Lon-1 don early shipments are also highly advisable, so that the corn may arriv« before the harvest commences in England. We are glad to per- ceive, from an advertisement in another column, that Mr Mild...

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1844. SOUTH AUSTRALIA IN 1844. SECOND ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
Cfte ^outl) australian. ADBLAIDB : FRIDAY. DECBWBRR 27. 1S44. SOUTH AUSTRALIA IN 1844. SECOND ABTICtF. IK consequence of instructions from the Colonial Office and the Commissioners of Customs, the prac- tice of making the official year end at September 30th has been altered, and the returns for th« Blue Book will now be made to the end of December. We may here observe, that in one important point of view this change is much to be regretted. It is well known that the export of our staple pro- ductions commences immediately after September 30th, and vessels leave before or after the end of the year from circumstances altogether independent of the quantity of produce. We shall thus have in one year, according to the returns, an unnaturally large amount of exports, and next year, people ignorant of the facts may suppose the colony going to ruin from the equally unnatural falling off, while, even to those most familiar with the trade, it will be a matter of difficulty to ascertain with a...
LORD RADNOR ON THE CORN-LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
LORD RADNOR ON THE CORN-LAW*. We extract the following argument on the Corn laws from a speech of the above nobleman, in the House of Lords : I In the year 1688, wheat had been at an average of j 45s. 4d. per quarter for about fifty years ; in j that year a law was passed with a view to ! raise the price, but it produced the contrary effect. The average price, for sixty-four years afterwards was 36s., being a reduction of 20 j per cent. ! 1815.-The price was 79s. 5d.. In that year j another law was enacted, expressly to keep j the price up /to 80s. ; again there was a com I plete failure, for in 1821-when the law had been in full operation for six years, the price was reduced to 54s. 5d., or rather more than 31 per cent., and the prices vaned from 38s. 4d. to 120s. 5d. ; mort than 300 per cent. 1828.-The price was 60s. 5d. In defiance of all experience, another pro j tective law was passed, avowedly to raise the j price to 65s., and it met with a similar fate to ali its predecessors...
MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT.—No. 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
MARTIN CHUZZLEWm-No. 17. THE plot in the drama begins now to thicken and to darken, too-relieved, however, by those bright and redeeming specimens of frail hu" inanity, the simple hearted Tom Pinch and his pure minded and loveable little sister Ruth, between whom and John Wesdock it requires no great foresight to see that a match is content plated. But our present purpose is with thc dark side of the picture, where the demon ol avarice and revenge, operating on the naturally brutal mind of Jonas Chuzzlewit, urges bim to the consummation of his crimes, by the cold blooded murder of his confederate in guilt. Thc scene is shifted to the country where the doomed man is successfully engaged in securing within his foils that universal philanthropist, Mr Peck- sniff. The following extract introduces Jonas setting out on his murderous enterprise : - ** Did no men passing through the dim streets shrink without knowing why, when he came stealing up behind them? As he glided on, had no child i...
LATEST FROM SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 27 December 1844
LATEST FROM SYDNEY. THE most important news from the Midd!« District received by Saturday'*; overland mad is, that a new penal establishment is to be imme- diately formed on the north-east coast of New Holland, beyond Moreton Bay. Halifax Bay, which is situated about 19 3 latitude and 147 ° longitude, is spoken of as likely to be the spot selected. A foul murder had boen perpetrated on a g-n tleman named Warne, a merchant's cletk, under the following circumstances:-~On Sunday even- ing, the 24th November, three men named Duva', Bidell, and Wilson took a seaman's -The*», to the Waterman's Stairs, Lower George-street, and engaged a boatman named John Kirip to take it to the North Shore.
