POPULATION OF ENGLAND AND WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 November 1839

POPULATION OP ENGLAND AND WALES. THE first Annual Report of the Register-General of England and Wales, which has just been pre sented to Pailiatnent, contains some highly interesting statistics respecting the population, diseases, and habits of the people. It appears that assuming the rate of increase from 1631 to 1638 to be upon the same scale as that of former years, the population of England and Wales, on the 1st of June, 1839, would be 15,3*4,720. The number of deaths in 1838 is estimated at 340,549. The diversities respecting longevity are numerous : - "In the whole of England and Wales,, out of 1,000 deaths, 145 have been at the age of 70 and upwards ; while in the North Riding and northern part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, and in Durham, except the mining districts, the proportion has been nigh 210 fa Nothumberland, (excluding the mining districts) Cumberland, Westmoreland, and the north of Lan cashire, the proportion has been 190 ; in Norfolk and Suffolk 196 ; in Devonsh...

NEWLY DISCOVERED POWER IN PROECTILES [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 November 1839

KEWLV DISCOVERED POW Ea IN PROECTILES I av - . » .__ mi . a _. I AN experiment was tried early on luursday last with a newly invented projectile, intended expressly to meet and set at defiance the improvements sug gested by the varions French commissions, for their navy, and which have attracted a greater degree of pnblic attention in England, from their avowed object being " to the advantage of the power which had the fewest great ships of the Iiue, and the largest popula tion ; and consequently to the advantage of France over England." The recent report by Mr. Jouffry evinces the same jealousy and the same object. A large and strong-buil.t boat was tbe subject of the experiment ; the distance was left to choice, with a single proviso, that the object Gred at should be in sight- The inventor, Captain Warner, launched with bis own band the destructive massile, which reaching the boat at the water-line, exploded, fairly heaving her up, and scattering the planks into shivers. One plan...

STATE OF TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 November 1839

STATE ur TRADE. 1\1 ANCHESTER.-The ioc<eased firmness observed io thc Li*eipi.or cotton market since Thursday last, instead of causing an improvement here, appears io have bad an opposite tendency, as' the demand for yard yesterday was decidedly smaller then on the .niecettipg Tuesday ; and, in order to make sales,spin ner swere generally compelled to submit to a reduc-' -tien or about jd. per pound on the prices of that -day. The fact'seems to be, that the buyers of yam will not'come freely into Ute market, until they are «atl-ned ib>i the cotton speculation bas been fairly brcl^vo'oivn, dod the price'of rhe material bas readied its natural level. We believe that, rf thc prices of Thursday last had continued to the present time, the» would ha« been a considerable business done, both in cotton and- yarn Kot that the spin ners, as a body, would have been disposed to stock ; themselves heavily with colton at . those prices ; but their putcjaisee for prêtant consumption w...

AMERICAN COMMERCIAL PROJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 November 1839

i AMERICAN COMMERCIAL PROJECTS. I begin to-day with steam for here we are foll of it, -more so tbaa ever. Yon, by the way, should take an interest in the subject, for we give yon credit for having helped' forward the At'an tic project, last sea son, in good time, when many men saw very dimlr who see very clearly now. Perhaps yo a predicted the identical thing I am now to report on. The i papers I send you are full, you will see, of the new j scheme of a line of mail steam-ships between Liver pool and Boston, via Halifax twice a month. This is settled, as perhaps yon already know. Govern ment has closed the contract, and ihre»; of the ships are on the stocks. The merchants here hare just bad a meeting on the subject. There is rrally no foretelling how these things will end. Even we whose vocation it is to " go a head," and to do every thing, as Ch tries Matthews said, " in twenty minnies," are astonished. Clearly, there must come on a great struggle between three or four of the Atlan...

IN the remarks we made last week on the Bill foi* licensing aucíioneen»,- and for collecting duties on goods sold by auc tion, we expressed a doubt whether the Act had been passed or not at the time oí our publication. We found afterwards* from the Gazette, that the deiberalions in Council had been su spendet! on acct* um of the session of the Supreme Court, ai:d (hat consequently nothing further had been done in reference to the matter. We have since learned that an answer has been returned in fiis Excellency's na me to the memorial of the Chamber of Commerce, and that the Auctioneers have been re ferred to that communication.

AFFAIRS OF THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 November 1839

AFFAIRS OF THE EAST. THE German papers are full of eastern news, more varied than authentic. The Austrian Lloyd's, of   Trieste, makes the Ottoman army occupy Antioch, and speaks of the enthusiasm of the population for the Turks. We must beg to doubt this. The Augsburg Gazette contains dispatches from Ibrahim Pache down to the 84»i The despatch of this late date gives an account of the occupation of Aintab by     Soliman, the Turkish general, and of a slight skirmish near that town. Ibrahim announces his intention of driving the Turks from the town. The Augsburg Gazette contains a letter which is stated to have been written by Hafiz Pacha to Ibra- ham Pacha in reply to that which, according to the same authority, Ibrahim Pacha had written to Hafiz Pacha. In this letter, dated 9th ult., Hafiz Pacha acknowledges the receipt of Ibrahim's communica-' tion, and after the ordinary style of compliment in which the Orientals indulge, he proceeds to cha...

IK our last we said that we should this week endeavour to place the subject of registration before our readers. We can not however, from the press of matter, in the present number enter on the subject so fully as it requires; but we will not altogether disappoint expectation. The importance of a regular system of registration of births, marriages, and deaths cannot be overrated. How many evils and complaints, and how much liti gation arose io England from the want of this previously to the passing of the late Act, is familiar to every one. Without this nothing can give a Government a complete and ready view of ils powers. If it be necessary to take a census from time to time, it is necessary that the means should exist and be as accessible as pos sible.
