POETRY. AN EMIGRANT'S GLANCE HOMEWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 19 August 1852
POETRY. AN EMIGRANT'S GLANCE HOMEWARD. Far, far from those whose tender watchings bred me; Far from the hedge-row haunts that please J my youth ; Far from the friends whose gentle teachings led me lu the blest «rays of innocence and truth ; IS'eu from my own peculiar Non hera Star, From every childish memory, I am far ! Perchance no more may meet my foreign ear The chastened kindness of a brother's tone; A mother's voice no more may call me dear. In the fond language only mothers own ; And she, whose name is upver named by rae, The loved, the unforgotten-where is she? Yet I am happy in my distant home ; A sunny sky smiles ever over me ; And let what will from God's good pleasure cojie. My friend, my husband, I have always thee, And gaily round our laughing treasure plays In all the winning grace of childhood's ways. I never can be lonely. Where I go With these, is home ; but yearnings fond and bland , . For those departed days, where all things glow With a bright glory, from that fa...
PROGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 19 August 1852
PROGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES Mr Editor,-The rapid progress. of the United Slates of North America, in population, shipping and conùnerce, leaving them only second to Great Britain, must be "interesting to the growing colonies out here ; should this lead lo a separation, let us hope that itjwill be accomplished in a good and friendly spirit« so as to leave nothing but thea remembrance of mutual benefit B and advantages behind it. Never again let us behold a struggle of Britons against Britons or their descendants; the prosperity of tríese colonies is the direct and only real interest of our glorious* old Father Land. No one doubts that at some time .or other a separation will take place, and the in- dependence of the colonies be safely and securely established. It would not bejdifficult to show that it is equally the direct interest of both Countries : Population of Ute 19 Original States. 1800. 1820. 1650.

THE OPEN COLUMN. "Audi alterara partent." COMMUNICATION WITH MOUNT BARK RR. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 19 August 1852
-T-? THE OPEN COLUMN. " A udi alterara partent." COMMUNICATION WITH MOUNT BARK RR. ¡ STR,-Seeing that you hare published, or 1 suggested, at various times many advantageous propositions regarding our little country, allow me to contribute my mite. The country beyond the Mount-Lofty ranges it. is indisputable is the most extensively pro- ducing district of South Australia, an l the roads are the most difficult. The " Tiens"carry ' the Eastern road n:gh 2000 feet a jove the sea l?V2i, with a farther descent of 6 or 700 feet, leaving an elevation of the immediate undulat- ing country of 13 to 1500 feet. This makes a hill road, by often difficult passes, of at least 2500 feet in not many miles ; besides the sub '? siiiiary rises and descents which altogether render coturaunicotion with Adelaide, at all i times expensive and tedious, often uncertain. ; Now I think there is a remedy to be found for this, which would be bohprofitalla to ihe Colo;.y and.remunerative to individual speculator...
SANITARY CONDITION OF THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 19 August 1852
SANITARY CONDITION OF THE PORT. WH aro surprised that the spirited inhabi- tants of Port Adelaide permit their streets to remain in a condition so terribly filthy as they are at present. The town has been dammed up to prevent the irruption of the sea, and there is consequently no drainage, and there are no scavengers to carry away the filth.. The result is, that the streets are a series of cess-pools, which it is almost impossible to pass. The immediate disa- greeable consequences are by no means the worst. There is an epidemic fever at the Fort every year, which is gradually becom- ing more and more fatal. A warning hint this, which wise men will not neglect. The means of remedying the mischief are very obvious and easy. It would be the simplest thing in the world to have drains with I sluices, by which the tide could be admitted at pleasure to wash away all impurities. A little expense would make the Port as clean ard healthy a town as any in the world. The practical difficulty li...

EDITORIAL OPINIONS. TUB GOLD LICENSES OF NEW SOUTH WALHS. Discreet politician» in Australia are dis-] m ay ed at the effects of Sir Charles Fitz Hoy's measures to control the wanderers of the gold-diggings,-Sir Charles being followed by Mr Latrobe io Victoria ; and they foresee possible consequences yet worse. Our readers know the singularly rich na- ture of the Australian beds, and the Cali- fornian fever that seized the community in general, especially the labouring popula- tion; and they know that, being called upon to devise some means of controlling that people, animated and guided most chiefly by the instinct of rapacity, the Go- vernor could hit upon no better device than to license them. This was offering Go- vernment sanction in addition to thc previous temptation-to suggest the aban- donment of a really fruitful labour, and to stamp it with authority. In Australia, es- pecially for such an object, a fcc of thirty shillings was not likely to be a bar against that sort of un...
