LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845

LUCERNE. ! ANT agricultura! writer in West Norfolk .«ays j *' At no former period have I experienced the value of Lucerne so much as duriug the present protracted drought. I have now nearly finished my first crop, which I have been cuttiug green for horses and cows, much of which measured 36 inches, and is very thick on the ground. My crop is now from 24 to 26 inches high, and equally as thick a plant as the first. I am now about cutting this for bay, and I think I have got more weight per acre of my second crop than is grown this season on four or five acres (first crop) of the general average of pasture grounds now mowing, lt does not appear to be in the least degree affected by the late severe drought, which I attribute to the very great depth the roots run down ; for I have heard (aud which I doubt not) instances of lu- cerne roots being found from 10 to 14 feet be- low the surfacp. I would urge all, whether farmers or not, to try and grow lucerne, for of all summer food for hor...

LOUIS PHILIPPE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845

LOUIS PHILIPPE. WE extract the following interesting paragraph, relating to his Majesty Louis Philippe, from the Fons Gazette, a Swedish journal: - '* Vice-Consul Burke having celebrated the 82nd anniversary of his birth-day, he received a letter from the King of the French, written with his own hand, accompanying a gold medal, bearing on one side the profile of his Majesty, and on the other the following inscription : * Given by King Louis Philippe to M. Br Burk, as a memorial of the hospitality received at Ham mer fest, in August, 1795.' The letter, which was dated at Neuilly, June 6, is in these terms :-* It has always been agreeable to me to find that the traveller Muller has not been forgotton in a country which he visited in simple guise, and unknown ; and I always recall with pleasure this journey to my mind. Amongst my recollections I give the first place to the hospitality so frankly and cordially granted me, a stranger, throughout Norway, and particularly in Norland and Fi...

At eight in the evening, the King having embarked in the Gower, the French squadron put to sea. The night was fine arti clear, and the weather so delightful that the King remained on deck till ten o'clock, lu the morning, being informed that the English coast was iu sight, he came on deck, attended by Admiral Mackau. Soon after, the Gotner was hailed by a pilot boat, and, in order to give the Portsmouth au- thorities time to prepare for the King's reception, (he G omer was put under easy sail.

THE LATE KING OF SWEDEN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845

THE LATE KING OF SWEDEN. BERNADOTTË'S way of living was extremely simple. To his established habit of temperance he owed the astonishing conservation of his person and robust health. Very often-indeed generally-he passed great part of the forenoon in bed, where, however, from eight o'clock, he gave audience and transacted business. About two he generally rode out in fine weather, and frequen ly repaired to his favorite retreat -the elegant little palace of Rosendal, built by him- self, in the park, and tastefully fitted up and furnished, where he sometimes dined. He rarely visited the table of the Qneen, who re- gularly dined with the gentleman and ladies in attendance on her. In general, the King dined in company with only two or three men, cour- tiers of distinction, high officers of state, scho- lars, foreigners, or other interesting rersons with whom he wished to converse. He seldom went to the theatre, chiefly because he was not sufficiently conversant with the Swedish lan guag...

IMPROVEMENT IN THE MANUFACTURE OF IRON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845

IMPROVEMENT IN THE MANUFACTURE CF IRON. THE attention of tbe iron-masters has been at- tracted to a process of considerable importance lately introduced into their manufacture. The application of electricity, to supersede several of the expensive processes, has been tried in the Welsh and Derbyshire furnaces with satis- factory result. It appears that the costly fuel and labour required for the purification of the ore from sulphur, phosphorus, and such subtle elements, create its high market value ; and these being all electro negative, have induced the new process, whereby the impure steam of metal, after flowing from the blast, is, in tts mo- ment of consolidation, subjected to a powerful voltaic battery, which so disengages the impure component, that in the process of puddling they are readily extracted. The London blacksmiths, it is staled, have tested the iron after a single re-beating, and pronounce it equal to the best metal in the mar- ket. By the same process, an experiment...

THE "AUGUSTUS," FROM NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845

THE "AUGUSTUS," FROM NEW ZEALAND.   BY the Augustus upwards of fifty passengers, chiefly of the laboring class, have arrived from Nelson. She brings intelligence from Nelson to 1st of February. The situation of that settlement is truly deplorable. There is very little business doing, and the condition of the inhabitants is al- most hopeless. Numbers are continally leaving, and two hundred more are anxious to come here. Just before the Augustus left, however, the Caledonia and Staines Castle had arrived from England with materials and capital for cultiva- ting and manufacturing flax, under a company which had been formed in England. They pro- posed to engage one hundred and fifty persons. If this company succeeds it will arrest the decay of Nelson. Our friend Mr R. Todd intends returning to the colony, after five years trial of New Zealand, and has sent before him his wife and family. The Augustus has 8000 feet of pine, besides flour, bran, gin, mutton hams, &c, ...

The news from the settlement of Hong Kong   is also interesting, but less satisfactory. The Council had passed an ordinance requiring every male above 21 years to be registered annually ; and, before being registered, they were to answer certain interrogations : if the answers were satis factory, the applicant was furnished with a ticket, to be paid for according to a scale of income ; if the Registrar was not satisfied with the applicant, it was in his power to prohibit him from residing in the colony. The inha bitants, both English and Chinese, had opposed   the new law with the utmost det...

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. Tuesday March 4th. James Wilkins, John Walker Wilson, William Somers, Henry Booth, and John Walker, were charged with making and issuing counterfeit coin. John Knight proved the uttering by the prisoner Wilkins. Mrs Seith proved the uttering by the prisoner Wilson. Joseph Cromie took the prisoner Wilson, who was anxious to get his hand in his pockets, but was prevented; found on his person good money, a counterfeit half-crown, and a piece of metal. William Rounceville accompanied Sergeant Lo- rimer and Knight to a house at the back of Hindley street, at the north-west corner of Light-square ; waited till Walker came up to the house ; he said he lodged there, and had things in the house ; on entering, pointed out what he said was his own ; Somers and Booth came in ; both said the house was theirs ; on searching, found a paper of pounded glass and Tripoli powder mixed together; some metal similar to what the half crowns are made of, a small iron frying pan...

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Wednesday, March 5. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 7 March 1845

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Wednesday, Marck 5. AT the termination of the civil cases heard this day, Thomas Miller and John Tennant were charged by John Bowden, of the Barossa Survey, for an as   sault, and rescuing out of his possession 600 sheep, which he had seized for the purpose of impounding - the act constituting the offence a misdemeanor. Mr Smith appeared for the prosecution, and Messrs Fisher and Spence for the defendants. The first count of the indictment, alleging the rescue, failed, on the ground that, although the complainant had complied with all the other re-   quirements of the impounding act for the protection of the sections in question, he had, in publishing the notice in the Gazette, left out the name of the dis- trict, publishing only the numbers of the sections.   The second count, for the assault, was proved, and the defendants were severally fined in the sum of two pounds each. .

HORSES OVERLAND. - We are sorry to hear that Mr Jas. Thomson, in coming overland from Port Phillip with horses, was attacked at Maria Creek (the scene of the massacre of the crew and passengers of the Maria, in 1840), by the Milmenrura tribe of natives; that two of the horses had been speared, and the herd dispersed. The police have been made acquainted with this outrage, and doubtless prompt efforts will be taken to apprehend the plunderers. MONDAY next, the 10th March, is a day of considerable importance in Adelaide. The Court of Oyer and Ter- miner and Gaol Delivery will sit at 10, forenoon. We are sorry to hear that the calendar is heavier than usual, both as to the number and nature of the offences. The general annual meeting of the Justices will be held at 12 precisely : - 1. To receive reports from keepers of slaughter-houses, and to grant licenses to keep such. 2. To grant licenses to auctioneers. 3. To renew and grant publicans and other li- censes.
