EDUCATION IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 February 1845

EDUCATION IN IRELAND. THR following is the tenth report of the Com missioners of National Education in Ireland, for 1843: - We stated in our last report that, unless tbe annual grant were raised, we could not undertake to contribute to the building, or even to the support of additional schools, although many were wanted and applied for > nor could we take those steps which we deemed essential for giving doe efficacy to our system of local superin tendence. We added that the number of schools under us had about doubled since the 'present number of local superintendents was fixed ; that, unless it were aug mented, the duty of inspection could not be adequately performed, and that we must consider this a very serious evil. As the grant has not since been augmented, we have been unable to meet the increasing desire of the public to establish schools in connexion with us ; and many applications which have been made to us for aid now stand over. We have also reason to believe that the ...

LONDON POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 February 1845

LONDON POLICE. Joseph Ady, who became so notorious some years ago by his correspondence with people in all p irts of the world, appeared on Wednes day before Sir Peter Laurie, in consequence of a summons which had been sent to him by that magistrate. lt was generally expected that Adv would not appear. Indeed many thought that the sentence at the Old Bailey had in duced him to change the line of business in vrhich he bad been so long engaged; but at the proper hour he walked into the justice-room, and took his accustomed seat before the alder man , Mr Haidane, a gentleman in the commission of the peace, who had written to Sir Peter on the subject of one of Mr Ad y's circular letters, addressed to Mr William Haldane,iu Scotland, soon after the death of the latter, attended upon the occasion. He produced the circular, which was as follows-: - L. B. page 3. The undersigned is able to inform you of something he believes considerably to your advantage, on receipt of five shillings for hi...

iLoeal ícelos. IMFEOVEMENTS AND CHANGES IN ADELAIDE. The improvements in our capital which we have had pleasure in noticing at intervals during the last eighteen months, are still proceeding at a rapid rate. In Rundle-street, several citizens have lately erected stores, and others have built new fronts close to the line of street, which gives it a more finished and handsome appearance. Mr So lomon is about to build a substantial inn on the pre mises lately occupied as the printing establishment of this journal. The large edifice in Norlh-ter race, built for the South Australian School Society, which has been so long desolate, is now about to be occupied, the centre as the private residence of Mr Giles, Manager of the Company ; one of the wings as the Company's offices ; and the other wing as offices by Mr Bartley. The Club-house also has been taken by Mr W. G. Lambert, jun., who is about 5to open it as a hotel. A; large store is in course of erection, next to Mr R. Sanders's splendi...

ENGLISH MARKETS. [FROM THE AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 February 1845

ENGLISH MARKETS. [FE O SI THE A DSTftA LIA N. j j We have London wool «ales from the 24th to the 28lh September inclusive, comprising 7424 bales, of which number 3240 were Australian, not including the exports from Port Phillip. We glean from those sales, and from private memoranda, that the wool market in London stands firm, with certainly an upward tendency for prime sorts. There was not, however, so great a demand for lambs', as at the previous sales of July and August. The qualities of wool which at those sales fetched 17d, 23d, and 26d, may be quoted from the following particu lars relative to the Continental markets ; there I can be no fear that the colonial staple will sus tain any decline. Fraokfort-on-the-Maine, Sept 14.-Whilst our own market no longer possesses any feature of particular moment since the stocks have been so deepy drawu upon and reduced, especially for the supply of Belgium and France, the account« from Russia, Silesia, Saxony, and Austria, con tinue to be o...

COMPARISON OF THE CLIMATE AT PERTH WESTERN AUSTRALIA. AND AT ADELAIDE. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 February 1845

COMPARISON OF THK CLIMATE AT PERTIÍ . WESTERN AUSTRALIA. ANO AT ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WK subjoin tables exhibiting a comparison of the meteorology at Perth, Western Australia, and Adelaide, which furnish «xtraordinary"results. It appears from them that while during a consider« able part of the year the temperature at the two placas is nearly similar ; a very remarkable dif ference, amounting to nearly 20° Fahrenheit, took place in December, the temperature in that month having then become to that extent hotter at Adelaide. This, we presume, shows the exact effect produced by the prevalence of northerly, or north easterly winds at Adelaide. . The at mosphere at Perth appears considerably denser than that at Adelaide.

GBVSRAX Report of the Chemical Examination of several samples of Guano, belonging to Messrs -. By Andrew Ure, M D., FJELS. London, 13 th Feb. In their varions analysis, perfiwned with the ut most care, and with the «ld of die molt complete apparatus for both inorganic and organic chemical research, attention has been directed not only to the constituents of the guano which act as an imme diäte manure, but to those which are admitted by practical farmers to impart durable fertility to the ground. The admirable researches of Professor Liebig have demonstrated that azote, that indispen sable element of the nutrition of plants, and espe cially of wheat and others abounding in gluten, must be presented to them in the state of ammonia, yet not altogether in the pure or saline form, for as 6uch it is too readily evaporated or washed away, but in the dormant, or, as some may sa...

The list of the offi cers who wer? present in action is also extracted from Captain Siborne's work: - '* Thus terminated one of the grandest scenes which distinguished the mighty drama enacted on the ever-memorable plains of Waterloo -a scene presenting, in bold lelief, genuine British valour crowned with resplendent triumph ; a scene which should be indelibly impressed upon the minds as weil of living British warri...

THE WORKWOMEN OF THE ARMY CONTRACTORS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 February 1845

I THE WORKWOMEN OF THE ARMY CON , TRACTORS. WE copy the following from the Morning Post 1 We are uaahle either to affirm or contradict the 1 statement; but, next to the hope that our con I tempory has been misinformed, we trust the sug- gested ignorance of the Government as to the prices paid to the workpeople, is well-founded. It is, at all events, a subject demanding investi- gation, and the speedy adoption of some meaas to put a stop to such a cruel system of grinding the face of the poor : - " Some new terms have been put out for the prices to be charged for ali work made for Go- vernment, and it will be seen whether the poor shirtmakers of the slop-shops are not belter off, or at aay rate as well paid as the poor creatures who have to work under the Government con- tracts, though probably the members of the Go-' vernment know nothing of the proceedings.

THE WHEAL GAWLER LEAD MINE.-The first discovered of oar mines was the only one which proved at first unsuccessful, the proprietors having abandoned the working of it, alter expending several hundreds of pounds. About a year ago, two enterprising parties, Messrs Dickens and Reynolds, entered upon an agree- ment for a lease from the proprietors, and commenced operations for discovering the missing lode. This was esteemed rather a rash project, but the spirited pro- jectors have been, at last, successful. They have discovered & lode of excellent galena, about seventeen inches big ; and, having a lease for seven years, they are sure to reap a rich reward. The proprietors are-Messrs E. Stephens, J. Morphett, J. B. Neales, and W. Peacock, who will receive one twelfth of the pro- duce, and a rent for the section. These gentlemen are all old colonists, and it is particularly gratifying that, after suffering from the disasters of the colony, and bearing the heat and brunt of the day,...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 February 1845

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIA*. Sm-Having seen in the Register a statement respecting an advertisement of ours in that paper which is very incorrect, we beg to state tbe circumstances nnder which the fi rsc insertion in that paper took place. We arranged for twenty insertions of our advertisement, and on doing so, paid the sum of 2 V (being half the price to be charged) on account, and received an order for soap amounting to 16s., which was delivered at Mr Allen's residence in North Adelaide. We expected, when the twenty insertions had been made, we should receive notice to that effect ; but no application was made to us on the subject of continuing the advertisement, nor did we ever promise, or even mention its continuance. Judge, then. Sir, oar surprise, after hearing of the death of the Re- gister, to hear its ghost had appeared with an old adver- tisement of ours, which, from its being incorrect in prices, was likely to do us injury in the sale of our manufac- tured goods...

Neither improvements, nor perfection itself, can escape the cavillings of the ill-tempered and envión..
