MAILS. General Post Office, 21st Feb., 1845. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
MAILS. General Post Office, 21st Feb., 1845. Mails for Western Australia, by the Victoria, to King George's Sound, will be closed this day at three o'clock. The destination of the Guiana being yet un certain, the notice of mails for Port Phillip by that vessel, published in the South Australian of the 18th, is hereby cancelled. JOHN WATTS, Postmaster General. THE " ARAB," WESTMORELAND, FOR LAUNCESTON.-The Arab sailed from London about the beginning of Jan. last year, and although specific reports reached the colony through various channels that she put into Rio dismasted, many are disposed to doubt their correctness. ! There is a vessel called the Arab in the trade between London and Rio, and we believe it was reported that the Arab, Dalgarno, trading between Port Phillip and Lon- I don, had been obliged to run into Rio. The names might create confusion, but Lloyd's agent wrote, and the an nouncement appeared in the London Times, that the "Arab, Westmoreland, for Launceston," was at...

INDIAN AND CHINESE NEWS. [FROM THE SYDNEY PAPERS.] CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
INDIAN AND CHINESE NEWS. ^FROM THE SYDNEY PAPERS.] CHINA. HONGKONG papers to the 25th September came to baud on Saturday last. This new British settlement appears to be progressing with no ordinary strides, despite its rumoured unheal thiness, if we may judge by that thermometer of prosperity in civilised countries, the appearance of a well-looking and well-conducted news paper, entitled The Ftiend of China» CANTON.-Th? intelligence from this city is of a rather alarming nature. Two firms have leased building allotments on the site of the old factories, and have been clearing away the rub bish preparatory to building. This does not meet the approbation of the mob, and anony mous placards have been posted, threatening the contractors with death if they build for the foreigners, also the destruction of the houses. It is but too probable that the ruffians will keep their word, and the property, or even the lives of the obnoxious strangers, be endangered. In the event of a riot there is...

CERTAIN ANTIDOTE TO ARSENIC. The &lt; fficacy of the hydrated peroxideof iron in countet acting the fatal tr fíe c\a of poisoning bv arsenic has already been wade public, but a suf ficient II II ruber of tacts had not been furnished KO as to leave no doubt upon the certain ty of its nctiou as a specific against arsenical prepara tions ; but tho fi».lort iug. seven cases remove all incredulity upon this iiEporiant acquisition con ferred by the progress of chemical science, and which, for the sake of humanity, cannot be made too public, as it is now incontestably proved that the peroxide of hydrated iron is the most cer tain, sate, and ready antidote agaiust arsenic known. Some time since Dr Puchelt, of Berlin, was .cal&lt;ed to attend Charlotte Leuz. aged 35, who had been taken suddenly ill alter her dinner. ¡ He found the patient ot' a death-like paleness, lier features coutracled.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. ' CAPTAIN APPERLY has recently arrived from India, in conjunction with Lieut. Parry, on a mission from the H.B.I.C., for the purchase of cavalry horses, and to select (if they eau be found) thirteen hundred horses suitable for the cavalry and a/tillery service, and to establish au Australian depot for the future supply of horses for these services. The price the Company has determined upon giving is certainly not high, cunsideiing the class of horses they require is a superior one ; but taking also ¡uto account the exteut and regularity of the demand, we are jus tified in looking upon the trade thus opening as a very encouraging feature in the prospects of of otu own and the sister colonies, at a period wheu all descriptions of stoek are sufieriug from so general and grievous a depression. Horse breeders will do well t&lt;i inform themselves accu rately as to the description of stock required by the Company's agents, aud direct their efforts accordingly.-C...
THE BORNEO PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
THE BORNEO PIRATES. WE extremely regret to state, that after finishing the Borneo pirates, as we mentioned itt a recent number Captain Sir Edward Bel cher, C.B., had done, he fell in with a fleet of piratical proas, which he determinately at once engaged and destroyed, but was severely wounded by a ball passing through his thighs. He has returned to Sirgonne in the Samarang, and is on shore for medical assistance. When he received the wound, he was in the act of laying a rocket, at a large 100-man proa. It was an irou grape shot. ?Murray's Review.
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
INDIA. A. dangerous insuriectioii at Surat had been quelled by Sir George Arthur. Letters from Shikapoie announce that nearly 400 men of the 69th, nearly the entire regiment nf Cavalry, and half the troop of Horse Artil lery are in the bobpital. There are but two medical men present, and they are both ill. Forty, fifty, or sixty men go into the hospital daily. At Dehili, of 4.525 troopers, no fewer than 1,094, nearly one-fourth of the whole number, are in hospital. The number of convalescents j is 202. i We regret to learn from the Madras United genñce Gazette, the sudden death by apoplexy j of Dr. Lane, the Private Secretary to the Go vernor, and one of the brightest ornaments of i the* medical service at that Presidency. ' The health of the 29lh, at Gazepoor, has been deeply affected by fever. 400 men are in hos pital, all fever cases. The men have beeu moving about, making short marches in the neighbourhood, in the hope of shaking off the enemy, but without success. We have recei...

INDIAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
INDIAN NEWS. FROM the Mauritius papers we gather some scraps of news, in addition to the extracts (rom New South Wales papers, copied in our fourth page. The disturbance at the city of Surat and its neigh bourhood, which is there alluded to, had been caused by the imposition of a new duty on salf. The dis content had spread in the interior, and bands of the natives having united, had the audacity to endea vour to intercept the Government despatches. Troops and artillery, under Major Coghlau, hal been sent from Bombay, to crush the insurrection, and io re-establish order in the disturbed districts. The Danish Government had ceded their pos sessions in India to the British. The precise terms were not known : report says that 1 "2 £ lac« of rupees were given for Tranquebar alone, but there is reason to believe that this sum is for the whole. On the '27th Sept. the Danish colors were hauled down at Tranquebar, and the British Sag hoisted. The settlement of Serampore was to he delivered ...
Select Poetry. ON THE DEATH OF AN INFANT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
Select ^ oe irr. ON THE DE*TH OF AN INFANT. And art thou gone ? The last farewell is spoken I hear for thee the saddening death-knell toll ; The ties .that held thee to the world are broken Earth has thy corpse, and Heaven thy angel soul Î For thee the knell-for thee affection's weeping ; Oh ! can thy race of life so soon be run P Canst thou, street baby innocent, be sleeping Cold in the grave, whose life was scarce begun. Yes, thou art gone!-The God that gare hath taken Ne'er round thy mother's neck those arms shall play. Nor those bright eves tn life suid joy awaken, To glad thy father with their beaming ray ! Cold are those cheeks, whore once the rose bloom'd brightly, Cold are those lips which mine have often pressed ; Still is the heart that once beat warm and lightly Mute is the tongue that half-form'd words expross'd. Round thy small conch, where thy cold clay is lying, She, who in vain has raised thy drooping head, Wanders in restless agony, still crying Where is my child?-o...

I SIR-Please to permit me, through your paper* to call upon that part of the committee in whose possession the prize wheat is now lying tor transmission to England, to ask if they will be so kind as to measure and weigh the same over aguí», iu order to set the public mind at rest, as lhere exists much difference of opinion about the whef t which weighed 67| lbs. 1 have heard say it »as impossible tn weigh 67ç lbs.; and i also heard a spectator say it was not weighed fairly. Now, i ihittk this point should be ascertained previous to its being sent to England.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. Port Adelaide, 19th Feb., 1845. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. Port Adelaide, 19th Feb., 1845. SIR-We, the undersigned, passengers by the brig Yare, having seen an article in the South Aus tralian Register of yesterday's dale, imputing blame, ignorance, or culpable neglect, to Captain Harding, begto state that, as we are ful ly aware of the circumstances attending the stranding of that vessel, we can confidently say, that neither blame, igno rance, nor neglect can he aîtribated to him nor to any of his officers ; and we consider it only our duty to contradict, in the most decided manner, the absurd and malicious rumours to which the Register has given currency. It appears to us that the whole article only shows the ignorance of the editor of the Register in regard to nautical matters, or a malicious in tention to injure the captain of the ship in the estimation of his owners.

3LccaI fichus. VIEWS I» ADELAIDE AND ns VICINITY.-We have had the pleasure of inspecting a number of etchings by F. R. Nixon, Esq., of some of the most interesting scenes in Adelaide and its neighbourhood. As Mr Nixon is self taught in his art, and had to manufacture all his ma chinery for preparing and pressing his etchings, he de serves the greatest credit for his industry, perseverance, ; and skill. Without reference to any of the disadvantages under which the author has labored, the etchings are su perior as works of art, and accurately as well as pleas ingly depict the scenes which they represent. Mr Nixon is also engaged in making an etching of Mr Ridley's reaping machine, which he intends publishing in a few days. WE beg to direct the attention of holders of stock to the ! cancelling of the regulation which directs that parties j leaving a run for four months shall be considered as ' having abandoned it. This is not, however, to be under- j stood as authorising any one to kee...
ADELAIDE RACES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 February 1845
ADELAIDE RACES. - I TO THE EDITOR OP THE SOOIH AUSTRALIAN. I SIR-Caa you inform me who is the ONE honor able exception, mentioned in the sweeping assertion of the editor of the Register of the 19th instant, as not having paid their sporting bets ? It can scarcely mean myself, who am unfortunately acquainted with the profound gentleman whose mind seems un- : fathomable ; nor can it mean two or three of my acquaintances, who, I know, honorably paid their sporting debts on the occasion. Perhaps Mr Foti himself might be good enough to throw some light on the subject. . I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, NEMO.
