VISIT OF THE KING OF THE FRENCH. (From the Britannia, Oct. 5.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
VISIT OF THE KING OF THE FRENCH. (From the Britannia, Oct. 5.) His Majesty Louis Phillipe will land at Ports, mouth early OD Wednesday morning next. We do not doubt that bis reception will be worthy bis distinguished position as the head of France, and of hts noble qualities. The Duke of Wei. liugton will welcome him on his arrival at Ports- mouth, and certainly no event of modern limes can be more worthy the artist's pencil than the meeting of these two illustrious men, incompa- rably the greatest of this age. The sword of Wellington terminated the painful exile of the Duke of Orleans, and restored bim to his splen- did inheritance ; the Cabinet of Wellington first recognised him as monarch of Frauce ; and uovv Wellington in person awaits his arrival on our altores, anxious to be the first to do him honour. it is nearly thirty years since the Duke of Orleans quitted this country. He left it after a dreary period of proscription ; be returned to it as the great monarch of a great na...
A VICTIM TO SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
A VICTIM TO SCIENCE. GEORGE CUTHBERT was charged willi heing drunk at an untimely hour in the streets. When asked by the policeman who he was-" A vic- tim to science," hicupped George, " but I've found it out." " Found out what ?" said the policeman. " Found out what ?" murmured George. " Don't you know ; and if you don'i, you ought ; you ought, I say, to know that I have been hindeavouring to hascertain the com paritive strength of alcoholic fluids fot many year«, and I've just found it out ; whisky, sir. Tell you how I did it : I takes three glasses of' brandy-no effect ; three of gin-nogo; three j of whisky, done in a minute. My grandmother) always said I'd be a victim to my scieutiäcj thirst. j - I
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (Fron the London Mail, Nov. 7.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (iron the London Mail, NOD. 7.) j DUBING the past month, we have had mueh to do with royalty-more, in fact, than we can possibly detail ; for the Queen has been in state to open the New Exchange, and Louis Phillippe has paid us his long-promised visit. The innumerable inci- dents attendant upon such events, with the sayings and doings of the principal personages, have been faithfully chronicled, and occupy column upon co- lumn of the daily press ; but a brief notice must here suffice, referring for particulars to another page. On the day of her Majesty's visit to the city, there was a suspension of ali business ; chiefly from a desire to honour the occasion, but partly owing to police regulations, and the proclamations of civil functionaries, which actually prohibited honest men from pursuing their honest caliings. However indifferent to the inconvenience these re I strictions might occasion, the assumption of such [ authority was scarcely palatable, and gave rise ...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
I TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTBAUAN. j Sm-I have read the article in Saturday's Observer headed " The Colonial Chaplain, and Justices' Justice," and I desire, through the medium of your columns, to offer a few remarks thereupon to a public, which I canno 1 in this instance compliment with the commonly applicable title of " enlightened" since the paragraph in question precludes the possibility of their enjoying this distinction, as far as Mr Farrell's case is concerned. It is not necessary that my opinions should make any impression on the editors of journals, but I deem it desi- rable that theirs should fail in the unfavorable effect they are destined, and, indeed, well calculated to produce on all who are content to take the bit quietly in their mouths, and, allowing the bridle to be held by any ignorant or ill-instructed fellow who may choose to ride rough-shod over the community, and submit, in total ignorance of their own power, to that government of mind, which can only be l...
Correspondnece. KENSINGTON CHAPEL. [?] EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRAIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
KENSINGTON CHAPEL. *? ___ ______ l_Jl|flHbca_ EDITOR OF THE BOUTH AUSTRALIAN. öns-=- A very pertinent letter on the subject of this chapel appeared io the Register ot Wednesday last. A writer, under the signature '? A Trustee," has replied to this letter in the Register of Saturday. I cannot con- gratulate this individual on haring thrown much satis- factory information upon the subject. Indeed, to me, he has made " confusion worse confounded." He tells us " that the chapel is held in trust for the pure worship of God as practised amongst all Evangelical Dissenters, and that it is a free and open chapel to all denominations who believe in the Trinity of the Godhead." By this, I presume, is meant that all denominations who agree in the Trinity of the Godhead have an equal right to have their doctrines expounded in that chapel. Will " A Trustee" inform the public in what manner the rights of these different sects is proposed to be se- cured, and whether the possibility of any one sect...

STATE OF JAVA MARKETS. (From the Singapore Free Press.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
STATE OF JAVA MARKETS. (From i he Singapore Free Press.) j ADVICES from the eastern ports of Java state tha j trade generally had been very dull during th» j year, owing, principally, to the supplies of goodi from Batavia being much greater than the de- mand, such goods being usually bought on credil by the native merchants, who, to meet their en- gagements, are compelled to sell at a great loss, Some goods have improved in price-viz., the cheaper description of cotton goods adapted to th« clothing of the natives, which is attributed to thc stocks being confined to few hands. The con- sumption of the more expensive articles of dre*s suitable for the natives-such as chindies, salen dongs, kainpanjang, &c, have considerably fallen off. Several causes are assigned for the decrease alluded to, but the chief is the unusual short crop of rice, which has risen in price from 150f. to I85f, per coyan of 30 piculs, with the prospect of a sdi] further advance of 60f. tn a few weeks. In...
(From the Scotsman.) ENGLISH REPORTERS AND ILLUSTRATORS AT FAULT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
(from the Scotsman.) ENGLISH REPORTERS AND ILLUSTRATORS AT FAULT. AMONG (he many ridiculous bfundeis committed by the repot tera of the Loudon press at Blair, with reference to the lia tn es and localities of that hitherto, to them, 44 terra incognita," none is more absurd than the anecdote which repre- sents her Majesty looking on at " sheep-shear- ing" itt September. The black-faced breed are unquestionably a hardy race, but we question their ability to lose their fleeces so neat the end of the autumn. We perceive their informant had sunken simply of shearers, which is ¡he Scot tish term for reapers ; but the former being t-xclttsiielv used III the south country applied to Mteep, the in ist t. ke had thus arisen. To com- plete the absurdity, aud also to expose the '* il lu»uuieó" sys*.eut, the Pictorial Times of last vt eek actually contains an enclaving re present it » ber Majesty at»J Prince Albert overlooking a body of sheep shearers, and the latter patting a terrier-ali agreea...
THE EX-GOVERNOR GENERAL. (From the Atlas for India, October 3.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
THE EX-GOVERNOR GENERAL. (From the Allas for India, October Z.) A PRIVATE correspondent in lucia, adverting to Lord Ellenborongh's recal, makes the follow i« tr comment»» on that starling event : -" Lord Ellenborough's recal took us, as you may sup* pose, quite by surprise ; and I take it, the ' bard bargains' in the service will rejoice as much as the hard-working and zealous officer will regret the sudden tetminatioa of his rule. Every one j must a fl rc it that his patronage was always dis- tributed with great discrimination. The idle had uo chance of preferment witb him ; and thus, in- stilling energy imo our ranks, be has thus re- stored an esprit de corps that was becoming dor- mant. He was certaiuly the most activo Governor General we have bad for a long lime past, and 1 never met met a man with so reten- tive a memory : he never forgot aoy one he had ever met, or the circumstances atteodiog the [ meeting ; and on auch occasions, even after the lapse of a twelvemonth, would a...

SHIPPING AND MARKET INTELLIGENCE. - The Britomart has arrived full of sugar, but is again about to leave for Sydney, the most of her sugar having been bought by a mer- chant in Adelaide on condition of the vessel carrying it on to Sydney. This may by esteemed strange, con- sidering the present state of the Adelaide market and the high price of sugar ; but it is explained by the Guiana's cargo having previously got into the hands of one mer- chant, who, to protect himself, has purchased off the Brito mart's cargo. Thus by the agency of one merchant these two shiploads of sugar have not do...
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WINE. WE have hitherto omitted to notice a fact which is well worthy of being recorded. Mr Walter Duffield, has lately sent, as a present to her Majesty Queen Victoria, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; a dozen of his Echunga Hock. We had the pleasure of tasting some of it; and if we may judge from our own sensations, we can confidently state, not only that it does the highest credit, both to the province and to the ma- nufacturers, but that it will give much satisfaction to her Majesty and to her royal consort. It is impossible, of course, to predict, with any certainty, what acknowledg- ment her Majesty may make for these literally first fruits of our vineyards, so loyally rendered as a tribute of re- spect and gratitude ; but we may hint, as a very decided certainty, that many thousands have received the highest honours which her Majesty can bestow, for a less benefit than that of adding a new wine country to the British dominions.
The South Australian. ADEALIADE: TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1845. THE "BRITOMART," FROM SINGAPORE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1845. THE "BRITOMART," FROM SINGAPORE. BY this vessel, which arrived on Friday last, we have received a file of the Singapore Free Press to the 13th of January. The papers contain British intelligence to the 7th November, being upwards of a month later than that previously received. &nbsp; In our fourth page will be found a summary of the news contained in the English October mail, and in the third page we have given the summary of intelligence by the mail of No- vember. We have also quoted statements of the Java markets, and a price current of the Singapore market. The eastern news is not of pressing import &nbsp; ance, and must stand over till our next. &nbsp; &nbsp;
Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
COLONIAL MANUFACTURE. - Stimulated by the success of Mr Pybus in the manufacture of the bell, which he ex- hibited at the late show, the Scottish congregation have ordered a bell of sixteen inches in diameter for St. Andrew's Church, Grenfell-street. It is expected that it will be ready next Sunday, when it will ring a warning, according to the Scottish practice, at nine in the morn- ing, and will also proclaim the services,which commence at eleven o'clock, and at half-past six o'clock in the evening. ERRATA.-In the letter of " N. R. F.," in our last, two typographical errors occurred. In the 7th paragraph, 2nd line, the Words " the saving of" are omitted after the word " namely ;" and in the 8th paragraph, first line, for "I," read "we." THE present acknowledged elasticity of the public mind in South Australia seems to be felt in every quarter of the province ; and at the port, as well as in the capital, there is a very marked and gratifying reaction with respect to the number of l...

THE REV. MR. FARRELL'S CASE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 March 1845
THE REV. MR. FARRELL'S CASE. &nbsp; ON this subject we refer to a letter in another column signed "A Looker-on." If severe stric- &nbsp; tures are merited by the Observer, what should be &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; said respecting our other contemporary the Register, whose every word betrays the exist- ence (not of that charity which thinketh no evil, &nbsp; but) of a deep malignity. In our humble opinion the charge of assault preferred by the girl Charlesworth against the Rev. Mr Farrell was, in every respect, a trum- pery one—a charge which might be made and proved without involving the slightest mural tur- pitude. A person may indiscreetly and in- cautiously rouse a lazy servant in the way de- scribed, and thereby, in the eye of the law, com- mit an offence, while the idea of guilt or crime &nbsp; was the farthest from his mind. For our part, &nbsp; we entirely acquit Mr Farrell of everything, ex- cept indiscretion. The cha...
MILLER'S SAFETY REINS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
s-iiü -=-: MILLER'S SAFETY REINS. TH ess only who have experienced the feelings on being run away with a horse, cati fully ap- preciate the utility of reins which «iM infallibly pull him up when desired. It may be alt SH fe enough VT beti the reins are sound, to try and pull up a runaway; but how seldom are reins which have been use some time to be trusted in a genuine hard pull, when a determined and powerful horse starts off with the bit seized in his teeth, and holding his neck stiff with ali the power of his muscles ? In such a case either the leather ora buckle is sure to give way, espe- cially it: the long reins of a harnessed horse, and then the poor whip, with all his fortitude, can- not avert a crash against the first object which comes in his way ; but should he lose heart when the horse darts off, and when he sees first orte splinter and then another of the splashboard go whirring past him by successive raps of the horse's heels, he has not the pluck to pull the sounde-t ...
