PERSPICUITY OF STYLE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 May 1839

PEüspiccmr OF STYLE. OUR contemporary, -Murrays Review, has in his number for the 19th March, an announce ment which is not in itself particularly interest ing, but as exhibiting a new style of composition which is admirably adapted for a speech from the throne at the commencement .of a session, it may be very important : " The children of the Honorable Sir. Leicester Stanhope, wno disappeared after the mysterious robbery of his sister's, the Duchess «f Leinster'* diamonds, have, been adopted by the Duke." ? This paragraph pays a very handsome com pliment to the ingenuity of its readers, some one of whom perhaps who may be well skilled in the solution of conundrums, will be kind enough to inform us whether the Honorable Sir Leicester Stanhope has disappeared, or if his children have done so?- Whether or not the Dúchese of Leiaster's diamonds are sisters of the said Honorable Sir Leicester Stanhope? Also, of what property the said diamonds have been robbed ?-And by what Duke these no...

THE ABORIGINES. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 May 1839

  THE ABORIGINES.   To the Editor of the Southern Australian.   SIR.—The late proclamation by the Coiouial Secretary, on the subject of the Aborigines, is of such an astounding nature, and so calculated to     widen the breach already existing between the native population and the white men, that I can not help ouce more addressing you with reference. to the much injured original possessors of the soil—and claiming at the hands of every fellow   colonist, that JUSTICE for the natives, which the     Government seems determined to withhold. The proclamation I have alluded to, (published in your last week's paper), is framed in a spirit,   the most unjust, cruel, and oppressive—and is as unworthy of the English name, as it is a slander   upon, and unworthy thc English nation.   It requires no aualysis,—it is a mockery of justice, aud the princip...

SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 May 1839

SPECIAL SURVEYS. The spirit of enterprise and discovery fostered by the injudicious arrangements of the Commissioners, however beneficial to those whose activity and judgment   lead, them to seize upon such favorable   opportunities for realising wealth, are yet of most injurious tedency to the colony, and if the Commissioners do not put an end to the system, the best and most   available land in the Province will be thrown into the hands of a few fortunate capitalists, instead of being surveyed in districts of some hundred acres each, and thrown open to the colonists generally. The richest and best watered district in South Australia was chosen last week, and the fortunate possessor of such an estate may reckon upon having cleared ten or twenty thousand pounds by his selection : we allude to the surveys claimed, by Mr. Flaxman, which are un- derstood to be three-fourths for George   Fife Angas, Esq.,. and two thousand acres for Mr...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 May 1839

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. IN another part of our paper will be found a lengthened analysis of the pro- ceedings of this Society on the occasion of its first anniversary meeting, with the Report presented by the Committee, and we have most sincere pleasure in offering our columns to the Society for the pur- pose of disseminating a correct statement of its views and objects, and urging its especial claims upon the increased libe- rality of the friends of the colony, both here and at home. Truly has it been said that the greatness of England is nowhere more conspicuous than in her numerous institutions for the moral, religious, and scientific improve« ment of her subjects, and we have each had abundant opportunity of proving the truth of the Scripture " that the soul be   without knowledge is not good." Hap- pily for the world, the days of popular ignorance and superstition are passed away and with them the narrow minded and pernicious doctrine that the education &a...

THE VILLAGE OF KLEMZIG. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 1 May 1839

THE VILLAGE OF KLEMZIG. ALL our readers probably are aware that there exists about three miles from North Adelaide, a German village named Klemzig, but we have reason to think that this interesting little settle- ment is not so well known among us as it de- serves to be. Klemzig is situated on the northern side of the Torrens, on the estate of George Fife Angas, Esq. Like Adelaide, it is sur- rounded with noble trees, and from many points commands near views of our magnificent range of mountains. The river winds past it, and contains for the season a considerable depth of   water. An air of serenity pervades the spot, which is exactly such an one as the imagination would poutrtray as the retreat of persecuted piety.     The industry and quiet perseverance of the   German character have been fully developed in   Klemzig. Four or five months only have   elapsed since the hand of man began there to &n...

THE MILNER ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 8 May 1839

THE MILNER ESTATE. OUR readers will recoiled an announce ment which appeared in the Gazelte c few weeks back, and which not being contradicted by Mr. George Stephen when mentioned to him, was understood to be a fact, that one-half oí the so called Milner Estate had been sold to Messrs. Allan and Ellis for £10000. Upon the strength of the repeated non contradiction by Mr. G. Stephen, and from the pub I ¡city given to the report, we also pub ! lished the statement in one of our late numbers. Information, however, reached us, that the pretended sale was a hoax and a puff, and unwilling to suppose that an indivi dual holding such an office in the colony could wilfully deceive the people, and that so bare facedly, we took measures to ascertain the truth, and we are ex ceedingly sorry to say, upon authority, that no such sale, or pretended sale, had been effected, and that the whole story was therefore a gross and abominable hoax upon the public ! As might have been expected, the report l...

- I TANNERY ON THE TORRENS. IT has been reported to us that there has been established a Tannery on the Tor- ] rens some miles above the town, and that the party carrying on the business makes use of oue of the pools to soak the skins in, the consequence of which has been that the pool is quite foetid. However much we may desire to en courage every enterprize which tends to the benefit of the population, we must, as guardians of the public weal, enter our protest against the stream which supplies the inhabitant» with water being turned to any such purpose as that above alluded to. The first fresh that comes will bring down all the filth anti unwholesome de posit of this tan pit, and the consequence may be a serious injury to public health. We trust that the Government will immediately enquire into the matter, and if our information turns out to be correct, will take such measures us will prevent the apprehended danger.
