SINGAPORE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

SING APO RE. IT woola appear that all the repeated instances which have occurred here and elsewhere in India of Captains of vessels being fined for the non- delivery of letters, have been vaia in impressing commanders generally with the necessity of using a moderate degree of care and attention in the matter. Last week no fewer than two cases were brought to the notice of the authorities. One of them was the captain of the Antelope, who, on her last voyage from China, had a number of letters for parties in this place, and also letters for the overland, enclosed to parties here for despatch, and some of which letters contained large remittances. They were not delivered here, but carried on to Calcutta. It appears that these letters had not come through the post-office, but were sent by the writers direct to the vessel, and that having been put hastily aside, the fact of their being on board had escaped the commander's recollection, and they were not discovered till the vessel reached...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

SWAN RIVER WE are enabled to lay before our readers farther interesting intelligence from Swan River, for part of which we are indebted to the Port Phillip Patriot : The Legislative Council bad carried a corn law bill. imposing a tar of 15 per cent, upon the importation of «-heat or flour, in direct opposition to the Governor, who declared, while the measure was under discussion, thaf'on the imposition of a tax on any provisions he was deter mined to take his stand, and refuse to forgive auy assent to such a measure." The Council persisting, however, the measare was proceeded with, and eventually carried ; where- upon " his Excellency rose and most energetically declared that he felt glad it was not his fate to remain much longer in the colony j* that, by their passing of this ordinance, with the duty on provisions, they had strack a death blow to the colony. He should advise all his friends of the cir- cumstance, and he felt convinced, when the tidings went abroad that the duty on ...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. BY the Deborah we have received a file of the Cape Shipping Gazette% from 30th May to 30th August, Though we have had previously later news from the Cape, this file furnishes us with a great deal of interesting intelligence as to the state, progress, and previous occurrences of, and in, the South African settlements and coasts. One of the most important of these is, the sudden and gigantic trade in guano that has sprung ; up at Angra Piquena and Ichaboe, islands on the south-west coast The Shipping Gazette gives the names of seventy large vessels which were lying at Ichaboe on 6th July, and there were six others whose names were unknown. It was considered by mercantile men that, from the shipping em- ployed, 100,000 tons of guano would be imported into Britain yearly from the African coast, but from the prodigious number of vessels employed in this trade (which, by the way, had raised the freights greatly throughout the United Kingdom), that would be far short of ...

EPITOME OP THE NEW POLICE ACT. - An Epitome of the New Police Act, by J. W. Nicholls, Esq., Barrister at Law, and Coroner of the Province, has just been published. It is printed on the face of abroad sheet, so that it may be pasted on a wall, or framed and hung up for re- ference. The Epitome is perspicuously divided into three heads. 1. General Powers and Duties. 2. Local Regulations. 3. Proceedings ; and in a column at the right side of the sheet is an ample index. The compilation and arrangement is ex- ceedingly creditable to Mr Nicholls, and must have cost bim a very great deal of pains and trou- ble. With regard to the typographical depart- ment, we believe it has, and deservedly, given great satisfaction. As the price is very low, and as every one in a public situation will, for his own comfort, at once secure a copy, especially as the Act comes into force on 1st January, WP have no doubt rite Epitome will command an extensive and rapid sale. , BoLTEEß PBOX POBTLAKD BAY.-The P...

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

IMMIGRATION. NEYER, perhaps, since the foundation of the Co- lony, has the necessity of a supply of labour been more apparent than at this moment. After the influx of emigrants per George Washington, and after the supply of hundreds of labourers from the other colonies, servants, male or female, are not to be had for love or money. Sheep farmers are forced to make large flocks, and economise labour in every way. The operations of our mine lords are in every way cramped. Vineyards and olive yards cannot be laid out. Fisheries cannot be established, and many other sources of certain wealth cannot be touched because labour is scarce and dear. In order to induce, if possible, our Legislative Councillors to take up this vital ques- tion in right earnest during their next sessiou, we - propose to bring it before them and the public more frequently, and more circumstantially than we have hitherto done, being well convinced that much longer delay will be extremely prejudicial not only to th...

THE CASTOR-OIL TREE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

THE CASTOR-OIL TREE. IN determining the eligihility of cultivating any article as a new export, the smallness of the amount of labour and the shortness of time neces- sary for its production, together with the certainty of a good market, are the principal considerations. All these requisites are possessed by a neglected plant, the Palma Christi, or castor-oil tree, which beautiful shrub flourishes so luxuriantly in this climate as to have become completely naturalised. According to authentic documents there are upwards of 328,0001bs of the drug consumed annually in the United Kingdom alone, besides more than 160,0001bs which are entered for ex- portation. The principal supply is from the East Indies and British North America. The whole- sale price is from lOd to ls 8d pet lb. The castor oil tree is an annual plant, that is, its crop, like Indian corn, is matured in the same year {hat it is sown. Its cultivation is very simple ; the soft» which should be light and rich, is to be turn...
