Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 February 1845
Sarai &rm. WE have not much space to acknowledge the very shock ing paragraphs which the Register hag hurled at our de voted heads in his first publication on resuming the hated and ruinous biweekly form. When a man has been thoroughly defeated in argument, forced ignominiously to skulk, and shown to have been utterly regardless of truth in reference to a question of vital importance to the community ; when he has been foiled ia his petty plans for raining (by gambling speculation) opponents in trade, and when he knows that the public understand ail his little moves, and thoroughly appreciate them, he can be ia no pleasant mood. We were therefore prepared for an explosion of some sort, but we lament to state that that explosion is even more foul than we could have imagined. He has not only distanced all competition, but has surpassed himself. Before concluding, we may as well notice a trifling piece of business. We'would therefore ask our contemporary what tempted him to in ...
THE EXHIBITION OF COLONIAL PRODUCE AND MANUFACTURES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 February 1845
THE EXHIBITION OF COLONIAL PRODUCE &nbsp; AND MANUFACTURES. THE Agricultural and Horticultural Society's Exhibition, which had been looked forward to with considerable interest, took place on Friday, the 14th instant. We have great plea- sure in stating that in many respects the exhibi- tion surpassed the anticipations of its support- ers, and most of the articles displayed in a most satisfactory manner the rapid progress of the colony in the productions both of nature and of art. The arrangements having been in every re- spect a copy of those of last year, we have nothing new to remark on this head. We trust, however, that the committee will learn by the experience of both years, but, especially of the present, to lay out a few pounds in displaying the articles to better advantage, and in affording more accommodation to the immense crowds who enter the pavilion. This is particularly due to the public, considering the handsome sums which have been received for admission to t...

"South Australian" &nbsp; GENERAL &nbsp; &nbsp; PRINTING ESTABLISHMENT. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE Proprietor of the above Establishment begs to announce that the letter-press printing business will be conducted as hitherto. 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." &nbsp; Printing Office, ) Rundle-street, Nov. 11, 1844. ) The proprietor of this journal,'on investigating various matters connected with his recent purchase, finds that he will be 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 mitch improved, and made more consonant w...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. SIR-Your paper having been the medium of an j attack upon me, I am sure I need only appeal to | your sense of justice to allow me the opportunity cf a reply. lt is said that, having been at one time the largest public-bouse proprietor in the colony, I am likely to take interest in drunken cases. I hardly see how this follows ; but my possession of the property re ferred to was never a matter of taste. It happened, much to my misfortune, that tn the course of my trade as a merchant many publicans were in my debt whose houses were mortgaged to me, and, in some instances, these were all I obtained for what was owing. But what this has to do with the police reports in the Register I am at a toss to understand. Nothing has appeared under that head but what actually took place, and was already public from ils having transpired in an open court. Police cases are repotted in all the London ne weaners, and have only been more prominent here %>Hfhey h...

THE AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
THE AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. IN our advertising columns will be found the pro ceedings of the Committeee of the above Society, at their meeting yesterday. "We are glad to see that the efforts of his Ex cellency to assist in developing the resources of the colony have been so well appreciated by the Com mittee : the vote which they have come to upon the subject is honorable to both parties. In reference to the prizes for the unenumerated articles, we think the Committee have acted most judiciously, in giving the highest prizes for those articles which must in time become important and valuable staples, both for internal consumption and for export. The rapid increase of the productions of the colony is most satisfactorily shewn by the increase in the unenumerated articles in the various exhibi tions. The new articles manufactured and exhi bited for the first time this year, are as follows : Flax, dial and stand, malt mill, force pump, spur wheels, cylinders, bell, and o...

MR RIDLEY'S REAPING MACHINE, AND THE CLIMATE OF SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
MR RIDLEY'S REAPING MACHINE, AND THE K CLIMATE OF SWAN RIVER. A FEIEND has made 6ome calculations of the me teorology of S wau River, as compared with that of Adelaide, and finds avery extraordinary difference, which sufficiently accounts, in our opinion, for the failure of the reaping machine in Western. Aua* t ralia. We shall give particulars in our next. J IT having been suggested io ns that the Editor of the Register, in some of his late effusions, had been stealing from Boz, we, in our anxiety to elicit truth, examined the Pickwick Papers. We find the charge is too true.- The very expressions, which are household words with our contemporary «. worthless, disgraceful, and dastardly ; false, and scurrilous ; vile and slanderous"-are duly recorded . in Boz's graphic account of the Eatanswill press. A more charitable idea is, that Boz must have drawn his picture of the mighty Pott from our South Australian original. If so, he has done him scanty justice, for in Pickwick are no word...

SUPPLY OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
SUPPLY OF I ABOR. IF the British Government continue to refuse to supply the colony with labor, it will be absp* lulely necessary for the settlers, very soon* to provide themselves elsewhere. We perceive that the West India proprietors have had permission to engage Chinese laborers, and we doubl Dot that a similar permission would be given to those of South Australia. Haviug been favored with a document containing questions and answers upon the subject of shipping Chinese from Sitigapore, in which detailed information is given on the subject, we have thonght it right to place it upon record. The document is even now interesting, and may be found of material service at no distant period. Question. 1- Supposing that a West India proprietor wished to avail himself of the permis sion to engage Chinese la bourers, and to authorise a hundred of them to be eent to his estate in the West In dies, what instructions would he require to give to tbe »sent he might employ at Singapore? 2- What w...
IMPORTS AND EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
IMPORTS AND EXPORTS. ' 3k THE Gazette contains a return of the exports and' imports at Port Adelaide for the year 1844. The total imports are £119,648 18s. 3d., and the total exports £95,256 14s. 6d. lt has been supposed by some that a country is only prosperous whenr the exports at least equal the imports, but the best political economists have discovered that the im ports should include the profits which are made upon the exports. The difference between the ex ports and imports is £24,392 3s. 9d. in favor of the latter, and we should think the net profits upon the exports by the colonists would amount to that sum at least. The imports in 1841 amounted to £306,566,. and the exports to £98,920-the latter being principally re-exported goods. The contrast is exceedingly satisfactory.

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1845. THE "YARE." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
Çfte gout!) Australian. ADELAIDB: FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 21, 1845. THE " YARE." lut our last it was our unpleasant duty to notifj that the above vessel had struck on Troubridge Shoal, and that Mr Phillips, Lloyd's agent, and Captain Lipson, Harbour Master, had gone dowe to inspect her position. These gentlemen have nol yet returned, and consequently we retrain from speaking positively as to the cause which led to thc disaster. 1 We think it, however, our dury on behalf of the colony, to report, on the authority of Capt. Flin ders's chart of Gulf St. Vincent, the position of Troubridge Shoal. This Shoal is situated on the eastern coast of Yorke's Peninsula, nearly due west of the mouth of Onkaparinga River on the opposite side of the Gulf. The Gulf is at this part about thirty miles in width, and che extremity of the shoal is about ten miles from the shore of the peninsula, so that there is at least twenty miles of clear way for ves sels. Nearly in the centre of the Gulf, opposite the sout...
