THE UVV OF THE H * REM.-A DEY IN NAPLES. [FBOM BlWtCEWOOfc's MAGAZIN*.] j THE PX-«ley nf Algiers, on being dispossessed \>f his dominions by the French, took refuge at Naples, and established himself under M. Zili's hospitable roof. Uie third floor was entirely occupied by his suite and attendants; the fifth, or the garrets, be cou veiled into hi» harem. The curious arms, costumes, and jewels, which Hussein Pacha had brought with him were a ^godsend to the virtuoso tavern keeper, who w-as .never weary of examining and admiring them; and before the Äfrican had been a week ïn the house, he «nd his host were sworn friends. TJn fortunately this harmony was not destined to last very long:. -One morning Hussien Pacha's cook (a Nubian a» black as ink, and as shining as if (ie had been polished with a shoe brush) entered the kitchen of the hotel, and asked for the largest knife they had.

Correspondence. SCIENTIFIC DREAMS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. "Nunquam deciptur ratio, ncque decipit unquam," [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 November 1844
SCIEXtlFTn DRK4MS. ?tO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUÎH AUSTRALIAN. " Nunqtiam decip-mr rat o, ricque decipit unquam." SIR-Critical remarks having lately appeared in your newspaper about a certain book called " Scien- tific Dreams, Voyage to the Moon," written by a Mr Moorshead, «hat gentleraau has thought proper to publish a letter in defence of his effusions ; and as von wisely declined exhibiting it in your columns, lie has foolishly preferred that it should appear even i:i the advertising columns of the Observer, rather than that the publie should be de- prived of the pleasure of perusing its contents, or, what is as probable, rather than that its sale should be stopped by remarks so admirably and sri justly calculated for such a purpose as yours were; Í said he has done this' foolishly, because Ï am of opinion that his attainment of the ouject he wishes to gain will be defeated by the means he has employed. On his letter I propose to make a few remarks. it seems that you (and you must h...

The job printing has always given the greatest satisfaction, and he can point to work which has issued from this press that has not, he believes, been equalled in the colony. The motto of this Office shall be " Cheapness, neatness, punctuality, and dispatch" Printing Office, > Rundle-street, Nov. ll, 1844. $ The proprietor of this journal, on investigating various matters connected with his recent purchase, finds that he will te 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 charg...
The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1844. THE RECENT ARRIVALS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 November 1844
Che &ûutl) australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAT, NOVEMBER 15, 1844. THE RECENT ARRIVALS. Br. the vessels just arrived we have received files from Britain to July 8th, from Launceston to Oct. 19th, from New Zealand, Swan River, and the Gape, to late dates. We observe in the Launceston Examiner the following important extract from a letter dated London, June 14 : '* Intelligence has just been received from the German wool fairs, stating that a further advance of 3d per lb. had occurred on wools of a 2s quality. The price of German wools are, therefore, too high to admit of being imported (his season, which may cause a very brisk demand at ensuing sales in July." In consequence probably of similar intelligence j received in Sydney the price of wool at that place had risen considerably when the Dorsel sailed-ls 2d per lb. being given, freely for even common qualities. Beef and mutton at Sydney, it will be observed, had also risen 100 per cent. This, however, was supposed to be a scheme ...

THE PHRENOLOGIST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 November 1844
THE PHRENOLOGIST. THEM tricks in the clock trade, I told you of, I didn't think you would go right away and &nbsp; publish : but you did, and put people on their guard, so that there was no doin' nothin' with them for some time hardly kind if Iwent to say a civil thing, people looked shy at me, and called out " Soft sawder ! " Well, what does I do ? Instead of goin' about moonin' and com- &nbsp; plainin' that I was " too knowin' by half," I set myself about repairin' damage, an' gittin' up something new, so I took to phrenology. " Soft sawder," by itself, requires a knowledge of paintin', of light and shade, and drawin' too. " You must know your character." Some people will take a coat put on by a white wash brush as thick as porridge ; others won't stand it if it ain't laid on thin, like copal (and that &nbsp; takes twenty coats to look complete); and others, again, are more delicate still, so that you &nbsp; must lay it on like gold leaf, and that y...

MR. DARKE'S EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 November 1844
MR. DARKE'S EXPEDITION. THE journal of this enterprising but ill-fated gen- &nbsp; tleman, which was alluded to by Mr J. B. Neales, in his letter to us of the 8th current, has been pub- &nbsp; lished by our contemporary the Register, and we now copy it below. The journal contains little beyond what was already known. Mr Darke con- firmed the truth of Cumming and Harris's state- ment respecting the good country in the neigh- bourhood of Mount Wedge. The water holes were not found, but as Cumming and Harris's statement has been verified in every other im- portant particular, there is less reason to doubt that they were correct in this also. Though the ex- pedition has been most unfortunate in the lamented and untimely death of its worthy and gallant chief, yet, in other respects, the results have been most satisfactory. A new district has been accurately examined, and, as it were, added to the colony a district which, in the expres- sive language of Mr Theakston ( the ...

Richard Blayden Hale was examined, and said On the morning of the 2nd of November I saw a cow on the premises of Mr Lynch belonging to Mr Laffer. The cow was bailed up, with a rope round her horns; I asked him if he was going to keep Hie cow ; he said he would until the damages were paid ; I asked him what the damages were; he said he did not know ; he said she had been in bis wheat ; after this I went with Miss Laffer to get ~ the cow milked; Lynch would not allow us; be used threatening language, and brought out his gun to shoot us ; at this time he demanded 5s for damages ; he afterwards gave us the cow on paying 2s ; his wheat is fenced, but not sufficiently to keep cattle out; the land is not protected with boards.

THE REPLY TO THE PRECEDING. THE INSURANCE LIBELLER. (From Ike Cornwall Chronicle, September 28.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844
THE REPLY TO THE PRECEDING. THE INSURANCE LIBELLER. (From Ike Cornwall Chronicle, September 28.) WE are urged to notice the disgraceful abuse of several of the inhabitants of this town, in the scurrilous and lying Insurance Company's paper of Saturday last.* We would advise all persons who fall under the rabid assailings of the insu- rance clerk to submit to it, and be satisfied that, of his very few readers, none believed him, and remain assured that a short time only will elapse before the atrocious liar will meet with his just reward. If, however, we are seriously required to hasten the close of the career of the grooers shopboy, and to exterminate the wretched clique whose willing tool he is, we will not flinch from the performance of the duty; however much piain truths, we must necessarily publish, may affect the few reaily respectable and well mean- ing men, who, unhappily for themselves (no doubt from necessity), are mixed up with the clique. Some months back we threatened th...
THE PRESS OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844
THE PRESS OF VAN DI EM EN'S LAND. WE rejoice to perceive that correct views of a degraded press are deepening and extending. The public profit by the exposure of unprin- cipled villains, who float on society as social scum. The reptiles of journalism cannot be loved, they must be toadied; and it is satisfac- tory to know that enquiry has been awakened, and many now ask how far they have coun- tenanced a pr i ut which has for years poured forth a stream of moral pollution. We speak on this subject without the danger of being misunder- stood. The circulation of the Examiner cannot well be more extensive than it is, nor tts adver- tisements perceptibly increased by any change of circumstances. lu an important sense, the press is just what the people make it : they are responsible when they assist to support a slan- derous publication, and it re-acts on society by impressing its own character on the mass. When frowned upon, vice shrinks from the public gaze; but when sanctioned, it assu...
(To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner.) MIMOSA COPPICE BARK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844
( To ike Editor of the Launceston Examiner.) MIMOSA COPPICE BARK. Mr Editor-Will you allow me, through the medium of your journal, to direct the attention of settlers and others to the fact that yoting wattle hark is more valuable for tanniug than that of older growth, and I recommend them, when clearing ground, or cutting down young trees for firewood, to have all wattles, however small, peeled, and the bark, whilst drying, kept from exposure to the sun, wind, and rain ; as far as I require it for my own consumption, I shall always be willing to give 5s per ton more for bark so preserved. The object of the peeler should.be to preserve the light color of the bark on the inner side; this, however, can never be done, if immediately after peeling it be made up closely into bundles. I have constantly urged the abandonment nf this absurd practice, and the present low quotations of lite price of « attie I bark in England justify the conclusion that, I unless prompt measures be adopted to ...
