The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1844. The proprietor of this journal, on investigating various matters connected with his recent purchase, finds that he will be able to make some changes, which, he thinks, will be advantageous both to him- self and to the public. In the first place, the system of advertising may,   in his opinion, be much improved, and made more consonant with the principles now universally adopted at home in the management of newspapers, and he proposes to make changes as follows :-In   place of charging 3s. 6d. for six lines, and 3d. for each additional line, he will, in future, charge 2s. 6d for eight lines, or under, and 1d. for each line addi- tional. Advertisements for or by servants, in re- ference to situations, not exceeding four lines, will be charged at a uniform rate of 1s. 6d. each. He hopes that the public will respond to this improve- ment by giving him the encouragement which, he thinks, it deserves, and ...

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. MONDAY, NOVEMBER ll. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 12 November 1844

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. MONDAY, NOVEMBER ll. I Henry Hall, a carnpanion of Handy Tommy, now in gaol, was committed to take his trial for stealing £7 from a soldier of the 96th regiment. Two settlers from Mount Barker appeared to answer a charge of assault preferred against them by a German from Hahndorf. . The case was remanded for a week, and, as we understand, there is a question arising out of it regarding the right to a road, tor using' which the German was charging sixpence for each dray passing thereon. - We shall not publish any particulars until the case is gone into more fully. Two men, lately arrived from the neighbouring colonies, were also brought up, charged with at tempting to break into Mr Hardy's office, in King William-street, but were discharged for want of j evidence. j

There are five hundred tous now lying ready for shipment; and some idea of ita abundance may be formed from the facts that one gen tleman has twelve hundred tons on his property ready for shipping, and that any quantity can be supplied to the Launceston market and shipped at the rate of twenty five shillings per ton. Under these circumstances, the utter impossibility of our market competing with the other colony in the production and consequent export of...

AJost of the people are living in the mountain glens and ravines, where they keep the French at bay, and express their determination to die to the last man rather than submit.

MY WIFE'S DIARY. [FROM PUNCH.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 12 November 1844

MY WIFE'S DIARY. [FROM PÜNCH.] KNOW, Punch, I am a married mau. Yes terday I found a little note-book in the passage. It turned out, on inspection, to be my wife's ; and to contain -what think you? a journal; which that woman has been keeping, I dare say, ever since our marriage. The ensuing is an extract therefrom. Punch, you are a gen tleman ; and, therefore, I hope you will insert it. If you were a lady, indeed, I imagine you hardly wou-d ; besides, 1 should wish no lady (o take a leaf out of my wife's book. Here, however, sir, is one, at your service : - "Sunday.-Charles out iate last night ; not up this morning till twelve : breakfast not over till one.

THE DEVIL'S GRIP. FROM 'JACK HINTON, THE GUARDSMAN." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 12 November 1844

THE DEVIL'S GRIP. [MOM "JACK HINTOJS, THE GUAHDSMAN."] " THE way of it was this. There was a little estate of mine in the county of Waterford, that I used now and then to visit in the shooting season. In fact, except for that, there was very little inducement to go there: it was a bleak ugly part of the country, a bad market town near it, and not a neighbour within twelve miles. Well, j went over there-it was, as well as I remember, December two years-neper was there such weather ; it rained from morning till night, and blew und rained from night till morning: the slates were âving about on every side, and we used (o keep Ce Hows up ail night, that in case the chimneys were blown away, we'd know where to find them in the morning. This was] tire pleasant weather Ï selected for my visií to the " Devil's Grip"-that was the name of the towuland where the house stood ; and no bad name either : for, faith, if he had'nt his paw on it. it might have gone to law, like the rest of the propert...

THE BISHOP OF ADELAIDE. [FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING CHROWICLF.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 12 November 1844

THE BISHOP OF ADELAIDE. [PUOW THE SYDNEY MORNING CHROWICLF.] j WE gfve in ibis day's Chronicle an account of the ancient, noble, and impressive ceremony of the consecration of our beloved pastor and friend, our late Vicar General, now Bishop of Adelaide, who will shortly depart from amongst us. To depict the character of such a clergrvraan to people in Sydney, were like ''to gild refined gold, or paint the lily." In him we saw what the early teachers of nations were, whoso lives were spent in pointing out the road to heaven to their flocks, and ministering to their spiritual and temporal wants, forgetful of ease, recrea tion, or care of health ; like them he lived but for the people whom he loved, and who loved him in return. His labours among us have ter minated, and he can truly say with the Apostle, now as to us, bonum certamen cerlavi, cu rsum consummavi, fidem sereavi. May happiness and peace ever wait upon his steps whithersoever they turn ! On Sunday, the 8rh of September, il...
