BURYING PLACES OF THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 13 September 1852

BURYING PLACES OF THE ABORIGINES. When Captain Stokes, some few years ago, was pushing up the Flinders river, which runs into the Gulf of Carpentaria, he one evening arrived at a bend of the stream studded with small gresn islands clothed with a moasy covering of luxuriant creeporf. One side of the river ran under a steep bank adorned in thc, same manner, while opposite to thia were low wooded patches, where the trees dipped their boughs into the glass-like sutfiice- of tho water. In front, as farras the ere,, conld. reach, the same rich appearance was pre sented. The boats vere at that timfl swiftly impelled along, when, suddenly emerging upon a broad sheet, the explorer* were struck by a singular object which met their gaze on the right bank* of th* stream ; it was a tall, IG nely, leafless tree, the branches were laden with an extraordi-* nary burden, appearing like a huge roll or bundle of wood. The idea .immediately - flashed across the explorer's mind that it might be the nest...

FACTS ABOUT THE G BEAT EXHIBITION. The "first report of the Commissioners for the Exhibition of 1851," contains a number of curious and amusing, as well as instructive facts, which are summarized in the Athenäum:-" The total number of season tickets sold, it appears, amounted to 25,065 ; of which number, contrary we believe to the general supposition, less than a moiety was held by ladies-the propor- tions beiog, ladies* ticket 12,111; gentle- men's, . 13,494. While referring to the proportion of the sexes, we may as well add in this place, from a note to the Commis- sioners' report, that 270 gallons of eau de Cologne, acqua d'oro, and other scents, were distributed-duty fiee-in the building ; that more than 500 lb. weight of snuff, and 250 lb. weight of cigars were ' tasted' away in the Portuguese, Turkish, and Americas departiu-uts ; and that the children were feasted on chocolate drops in the Saxony, French, and Turkish divisions to a large extent.

CAPTAIN CADELL AND THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 13 September 1852

CAPTAIN CADELL AND THE MURRAY. CAPTAIN CADELL arrived in Adelaide on Friday last, having successfully accom-   plished the object of his boating trip down the Murray. He left Swan Hill, about 500     miles from the mouth of the river, on the   10th of August. His opinion is highly favourable to the navigation of the Mur- ray ; the whole of that portion of the stream down which he passed is free from all obstacles ; and the settlers on the river   are willing to provide fuel for steamers at   convenient stations. Captain Cadell very justly says, " the great wonder is that such a fine river has been so long neglected." The Captain has kindly favoured us with a particular account of his trip, a description of the country bordering the river, the capabilities and present condition of the land, and other interesting details, which we are reluctantly compelled to postpone publishing until our next.
