(From the Friend of China, November 23.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
f From tha Frimd of China, November 23.) ! His Excellency lia« laid »hr» returns nf import* and pxporis at the port of Shanghai before tho pubüc. This document is «ne which will possess great interest to those engaged in comnwee, as well as to most of the itttfllijrent members of our community. Shanghai is dpstitsed at no very distant day to be an important commercial port; dividing the foreism trade nf China «uh her southern rival of Canton. In looking over these tables the individual and total amounts ap- pear inconsiderable, it must however be borne in niiud that, in opening a trade with a ti pw place, there are always difficulties to contend j vviih. Large capitalists arc not on »he sunt, and j hence, though there may be every desire to ope irate largely, the people have not the means to do so, and the foreign merchant, a stranger j among them, will be disinclined to give credit. The advantages however, of the new pott, will gradually draw capitalists there, and with them a shar...

INDIA. (From the Bombay Courier^ Nov. 5.) I DR. WOLFF.-»Our readers will be gratified to j learn that authentic iuteliigence has reached I Bombay from Persia, respecting the ad re»tu-i rous Doctor. The tyrant of Bokhara had per- ; milted him to leave, and he was, when the El phinsione left the Persian Gulf, safe in Peisia. We are heartily glad that he bas escaped the clutches of the barbarian ruler of Bokhara, but there are some well-informed people who do not ! think Dr Wolff was ever in any danger at all, and alight easily at any time have retraced his steps without molestation from the Khan.
CONFIDENCE AND CREDIT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
CONFIDENCE AND CREDIT. (BS- JESSE HAMMOND.) The day was dark, the markets dall, The 'change was thin, gazettes were fall, And half the town was breaking ; j The countersign of cash was stop, Bankers and hankrups shut up shop, And honest hearts were aching ! When near the Bench my fancy spied A faded form, with hasty stride, Beneath griers burthen stooping. Her name was Credit ; and she said Her father trade was lately dead. Her mother Commerce drooping. The smile that she was wont to wear Was withered by the hand of care. Her eyes had lost their lustre ; Her character was gone, 6he said, For she had basely been betrayed, And nobody would trust her. For honest Industry had tried To gain fair Credit for his bride, And found the damsel willing ; But ah a fortune-hunter came, And Speculation was his name, A rake not worth a shilling. The villain came on mischief beal, Soon gained both dad aud mam's consent, And then poor Credit smarted : He filched her fortune and her fame. And fijced a...

EFFECTS OF A RUSSIAN CLIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
EFFECTS OF A RUSSIAN CLIMATE. MR ZEPINUS, io a letter to Guthrie, relates the following phenomena, which look place io Rus- sia, when a severe frost had continued for seve- ral weeks. Mr iEpinus was sent for to the pa- lace to see an uncommon phenomenon. On going into the apartment of Prince Orloff he found him at his toilet, and that every time his valet drew the comb through his hair a strong crackling noise was heard ; and on darkening the room, sparks were seen following the comb in great abuudauce, while the prince himself was so com- pletely electrified, that strong sparks could be drawn from his hand and face ; nay, he ivas even electrified when he was only powdered with a puff. A few days after he was witness to a more striking effect of the electric state of a Russian at mosphet e. The Grand Duke of Rus- sia sent for him one evening in the twilight, and told him that, having briskly drawn a flannel cover off a green damask chair in his bed cham- ber, he was astonished at th...

STATE OF JAVA MARKETS. (From the Singapore Free Press.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
STATE OF JAVA MARKETS. (From ike Singapore Free Press.) ADVICES from the eastern ports of Java state that trade generally had been very dull during the year, owing, principally, to the supplies of goods from Batavia being much greater than the de- mand, such goods being usually bought on credit 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 the clothing of the natives, which is attributed to the stocks being confined to few hands. The con- sumption of the more expensive articles of dress 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 hss risen in price from 150f. to I85f. per coyan of 30 piculs, with the prospect of a still further advance of 60f. in a few weeks. In form...

ANECDOTES OF THE LATE LORD CHANCELLOR ELDON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
ANECDOTES OF THE LATE LORD CHANCELLOR ELDON. THE following story was told to Mrs Forster by Lord \ Ido», in regard to a patty in the house of a certain *' Lawyer Fawcett," who yearly gave a dinner to the counsef gohi£ the circuit. It was as follows : - " On one occasion,'' related Lord Eldon, '* I heard Lee say ' I caunot leave Fawcett's wine ; mind, Devonport, you go home immediately after dinger to read the brief in the cause we have to conduct to-morrow.' « Not T,' said Davenport; ' leave my dinner and wine to read a brief! No, no, Lee, that won't do.' * Then, said Lee, * what is to done ?-who else is em- ployed ? ' Oh, young Scott V Lee-»Oh, he must go. Mr Scott, you must go horse imme- diately, and make yourself acquainted with that cause before our consultation this evening.'

SUPREME COURT-EQUITY SIDE. February 28, 1845. HUGHES T. BTJNCE AND ANOTHER. MK GWYNNE, for the defendants in this suit, mored, upon an order of Court of 31st ultimo, that plaintiff be at liberty to amend his bill within three weeks from that time. Mr Gwynne now informed the Court that no amendment had been made in the plaintiff's bill, and moved that the same be dis- missed with costs. Mr Fisher (with whom was Mr M. Smith), on the part of the plaintiff, objected to such motion, on the ground that no notice had been given on the part of the defendants. This objection was over- ruled by the Court, as it appeared that an arrange- ment had been made between the solicitors of the parties, dispensing with such notice in thc event of the bill not being amended by the plaintiff by the 27th instant. The Court now ordered that the plaintiff's bill stand dismissed with costs.

POSTAL COMMUNICATIONS. Mr A.

Sealing wax should never be used in correspondence with the East Indies."
WEST INDIAN RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845
WEST INDIAN RAILWAY. A RAILWAY is about to be constructed in the island of Jamaica, between Kingston and Spanish Town. The length is twelve miles. This will be the first line of railway ever constructed by the labour of free negroes, and also the first in- vestment of Biitish capital ever made in the co. lonies for such purposes. Nearly the whole of the shares are held in Liverpool, Manchester, and London ; and from the great amount of trafiic already existing betweeu Kingston and Spanish Town, as well as the cheapness with which the line will be formed, and the business- like hands into which the Work has fallen, we have no doubt that the result will be very favor- able, and will encourage the formation of rail ! ways in other parts of the British colonies.
