THE EXPORT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 February 1845

THE EXPORT TRADE. WE have just witnessed the very remarkable event of a large vessel, which had come seeking for freight, leaving our port, though the holders of produce could have loaded her three times over in the course of a few weeks. The reason is, we believe, that the captain wanted 2s. per bushel as freight for wheat, while the holders offered ls. 9d. per bushel, and to fill up with bark at £4 10s per ton. We regret extremely that any vessel which came to our port for freight should have gone away empty; because the circumstance may induce others to keep away, and because we think that it would be in general better for the farmers to ex port a part of their corn, even at a loss, than to keep a superabundance, which must act as a night* mare on prices. It is possible that parties have declined to give 2s., in the idea that it would be a bad precedent ; and they may expect other ves sels. We can only say, that we hope the latter may prove to be the case ; that vessels may be fo...

THE GREAT AGRICULTURAL MEETING. [FROM PUNCH.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 February 1845

THE GREAT AGRICULTURAL MEETING, [FBOlt PUTSCH.] THIS association held its enormous meeting some time a»o, at Bristol, and the result was in every respect exceedingly gratifying. lt is not, perhaps, generally known that this is a society of persons whose common object is to promote the interests of the English clod hopper and to place the English ploughboy on that proud pinnacle which the elevated nature of his pursuits peculiarly adapts him for. Â part of the objects of this association con sists in the invention oftimpleiuents of agricul ture, the decision 0:1 different soils, and the cul tivation of cattle. The secretary produced a new machine which was peculiarly adapted for extracting the butter from butterflies. He had never tried it, but he had a strong idea that it would answer {loud cheers). A member wished tokuow whether buttercups would be equally salubrious after the butter had been removed (hear) The secretary didpnot feel himself at liberty to make any rep!7 tit that qu...

TO TB H EDITOR OF TtIK SOI TH AUSTRALIAN. Melbourne Cottage, North Adelaide, february 17, 1845. Fra-I have jast seen in the Ust number of the Ilegis/er the following statement in reference to a sara nie ot wine which I exhibited at the show on Friday :-" The maker was at liberty to cali it what he pleased, and of alt names in the world he fixed upon Burgundy." There is no truth in that assertion. I did not fix upon the name nf Burgundy, nor did I presume to give it any other name than what the label bore-*' Ked lVine.u Never having tasted <*the warm water with which a jar of currant jam had been washed out," I am not qualified to speak to the correctness of the compari son made by the person who supplied your contempo rary with his opinion. The wine, such as it was, had, at least, none of the earthy flavor which marks that of the Cape, and, as among the earliest attempts to de velope one of the many important resources of the pro vince, it might have ¿cen more just and be...

THE "YARE." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 February 1845

THE " YARE." THIS vessel has got into a most remarkable posi tion, having Strock on the north end of Troubridge Shoal. So extraordinary is the fact that we can j scarcely credit what is reported. It appears that the captain has thrown overboard about 500 bushels of wheat in order to lighten die vessel. The Victoria has been engaged to go down to her, and Lloyd's agent, Mr Phillips, wiU also visit her. We shall give farther particulars, when he returns. . Since writing the above, we have received the j following from a correspondent at Port Adelaide : We are sony to state that the brig Yarr, which sailed from here on Thsnday morning last, went ashore on Friday night on the Troubridge Shoal. The accident occurred about eleven o'clock, the ship going about six or seven knots, and the wind about S.S.E. It was en tirely occasioned by the current through the Backstairs Passage, which carried her nearly twenty miles out of j her course ; and no blame u attributed to the captain, ] who acte...

It was the unanswerable demonstration of the capabilities of South Australia, and spoke con clusively of the surpassing fertility of its soil, as of the health and beauty of its climate. The simple fact that the prize WHSAT weighed sixly-secen pounds and one quarter ; the OATS forty-eight pounds titree quarters ; and the BA.BI.ET fifty-seven pounds and a quarter to the bushel, will be suffi cient to satisfy all practical men of the quality of these cereals. The weight, we believe, is altogether unprecedented in any part of the world, and the test which they are yet to undergo must convince every one that nothing is dreaded from the most rigid examination.
