SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (From the South Australian Register, Jan. 16.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (Front the South Australian Register, Jan. 160 The Water Witch, from Fowler'« Bay, had arrived with despatches from Mr. Eyre. We subjoin the I report of Mr. Eyre's proceedings, which is merely confirmatory of his former observations on the coast line so far as Point Bell. The nature of the interior in that region is still unknown, although from the absence of all watercourses to the southward, it seems certain .that towards the north and westward there must exist either large rivers or an inland sea. Mr. Eyre was -confidently expected to reach King -Georges Sound,'and thus open up the land com municstion with Swan River. His next report cannot fail to be most interesting. Point Fowler, 17th December, 1840. SIR-By the return of the Water Witch, I have the honor to furnish yon, for the information of His Excel- lency the Governor, with a bnief account of our proceed- ings op to the present date. - Upon the return of Mr. Scott from Adelaide to Port Lincoln, I left the ...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

COLONIAL PRESS. 1 Wa have much pleasure in calling attention to ao ad- dress presented to Captain Forth by some gentlemen at Campbell Town, accompanied with a piece of plate, as a token of their regard. It consists of a handsome silver salver, imported per Arab, bearing Captain Forth's arms and the following inscription : - .«.Presented to Frederick Forth, Esq., late Captain 21st Fusiliers, as a testimony of regard for his gratuitous ex- ertions ia the erection of the bridge and general improve- ments of Campbell Town, by the inhabitants of that .district." This present will be highly gratifying to the gentleman to whom it has been presented, and it also reflects great credit upon the presenters, who we should at once have guessed were inhabitants of Campbell Town. The im- provements effected at Campbell Town have in a great mea- sure been the means of raising that township to its present eminence, and this testimonial is therefore as well de- served as it'is freely given. Such spir...

ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDATION OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDATION OF THE COLONY. The usual holiday in honour of the foundation of the Colony of New South Wales, was celebrated by a Regatta in the harbour, which waa conducted in a very superior style by the stewards. The weather was beautiful, the rays of the sun being partly broken by an extended stra- tum of light clouds, such as have been expressively deno- minated the mackerel-back sky, and the heat, which would have otherwise been oppressive, was tempered by a fresh breeze, increasing in briskness as the day advanced. The harbour wore a splendid appearance, from all the vessels being decorated with their various dags, and every point of the shore was enlivened by crowds of people in (heir holiday dretses, eager to witness the animated con- tests of the boats. The principal assemblages of the people were at Dawes's Poiut, from which the competi- tors started, to the opposite headland in the Government domain, Marquarie Point. We observed in various parts of the gro...

THE CABINET. SUICIDE. When all the blandishments of life are gone, The coward sneaks to death; the brave live on. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

THE CABINET. SUICIDE. When all the blandishments of life are gone, The coward sneaks to death ; the brave live on. i Botany has one advantage over many other useful and/ne*' ccssary studies, that even its first beginnings are pleasingfand profitable, though pursued to ever so small an extents the objects with which it is conversant are in themselves charm- ing, and they become doubly so to those who contemplate them with the additional sense, as it were, which science gives: the pursuit of these objects is an exercise no less health- ful to the body, than the observation of their laws and cha- racters is to the mind.-Sir /. E. Smith. In particular arts, beware of that affectation of speaking technically, by which ignorance is often disguised and know- ledge disgraced. It is not in the hey-day of health and enjoyment-it is not in the morning sunshine of his vernal day, that man can be expected feelingly to remember his latter end, and to fix his m heart upon eternity.

RETROSPECT OF THIS LONDON MONEY-MARKET. Friday, Oct. 9, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

RETROSPECT OF THIS LONDON MONEY. MARKET. Friday, Oct. 9,1840. We have no novelty to record this week on the subject of trade, which remains in nearly the same condition at last reported ; a fair amount of business continues to be transacted, but the demand for all articles of merchandize is confined to the immediate wants of the community ; while a total absence of speculation is observed in the se- veral markets. The same observations apply to the con- dition of the manufacturing interests throughout the coun- try ; and many operations appear for the present to have been suspended till the aspect of political affairs be more encouraging. So long as such uncertainty exists as to the future, it would be highly imprudent to undertake any operations which require time for their success, or wbicb involve the projectors id danger in the event of war. The probabilities of the peace of Europe being disturbed have much increased this week, and this subject has in conse- quence formed the pr...

FASHIONS FOR SEPTEMBER. (From the London and Paris Ladies' Magazine of Fashion."J The present season is not one that offers much novelty in our toilettes; the skirts continue lo be worn long, and the corteges with whalebone, but as fashion is no longer the tyrant of former years, we may now with impunity consult our tastes, both as to form and s-'yle of pattern» Redingots of plaid barigt, edged all round with oíais of the same, are fashionable in Paris. White is very gene- rally worn there also, with the amazon spencer of black, green, or red velvet with tight sleeves, the body oma« mented with buttons, and collar of guipure lace, with manchettes to match ; they form a kind of jacket all round, the waist rounding off at the hips.

Several redingotes of black cachemire have appeared, the body and sleeves tight, orna- mented in the front of both body and skirt with buttons, the flounces on mousseline de laint dresses are sometimes festonne...

STATISTICS OF MARRIAGE. Important Hints for the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

STATISTICS OF MARRIAGE. Important Hints for the Ladies, Some years ago a table of the probabilities of roa^ffl riage at the different periods of life, in the case of females, was published in an English paper. It wai founded on data derived from the records of marriages among the working classes, and conse. qnently deficient as a general calculation. The | Scotsman has, however, recently published a table, % which supplies materials for a much more accurate $ calculation, grounded on returns which comprehend p all classes. We have much pleasure in supplying & our female readers with the result, not in the least | doubtful that the ladies of Tasmania will feel grateful ti for the opportunity which is thus afforded to all for | calculating their proportional chances. I If we take 100 to represent the whole of a woman's '$ chances of marriage between the ages of IS and 70, the é proportionate chances in each period of five years will be H as follows:- *'? Age.

PREPARATIONS FOR WAR. Four non-commissioned officer« and three experi. enced gunners and drivers of the Royal Artillery, selected from the men just returned from Spain, were ordered on Saturday to leave Woolwich for Constan- tinople, to brigade and instruct the Turks. The order reached Woolwich at half-past seven in the morning, by ten the men were on the train for Southampton, and embarked at four on the same day. l NM "*" "J*"* The Chronicle of Jersey says, .* Every preparation is making to place the fortifications in this island in a complete state of defence.

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF LORDS. Thursday, October 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 February 1841

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF LORDS. Thursday, October 8. This being the day to which Parliament stood pro- rogued, both Houses met pro forma. The Commons were represented by Mr. Ley and the other principal clerks and officers of the House. At half-past two o'clock the Lords Commissioners (the Lord Chancellor, Lord Melbourne, and Lord Minto) took their Beat» near the throne, when the Royal Commission having been read, The Lord Chancellor in her Majesty's name, de- clared the present Parliament to stand prorogued until Thursday, the 12th day of November next, to be then and there holden. Mr. Ddttin was the only Member of the House of Commons who was present during these proceedings. The news of the bombardment of Beyrout seems to have been received by the mercurial population of Paris with as much surprise and passion as if it had been the bombardment of Marseilles. The batteries of the Parisian press have opened with scarcely less noise than the floating batteries of our English fl...

SYDNEY. t'oekney Opinions of Sydney.--Some time since a gentle- man resident in Sydney, at considerable expense, collected . series of drawings depicting the principal views of our Australian scenery, including several representations of Sydney, and other towns in the colony, and forwarded them to a relative in England, for the purpose of being engraved there, to illustrate some -works about to be printed connected with the hbtory and topography of this colony. A few days since the Sydney gent, received a communication from his friend io London, informing him of the safe arrival of the drawings at their destination, and stating thal they had excited general admiration, as few who had seen them had before had any idea that Syd- ney was such a place as the drawings represented it to be ; so much so was this the case, that the writer informs his friend that one gentleman on viewing them exclaimed -"Really this is astonishing, as I always supposed that them as went to live ia Sydney dwe...
