THE "GOVERNOR GAWLER." &nbsp; BY the above vessel, we have Portland papers to the 25th February, which contain English news to the 2nd November. This is not so late as previously received via Singapore, but they furnish interesting intelligence, particularly in reference to the wool markets. This we sub- join :- &nbsp; The Heroine from Liverpool, arrived at Melbourne, brings English news to the 29th October, and the Herald arrived at Sydney to the 2nd November, from which we learn that at the latest dates inferior wool had not advanced, but that su- perior had still maintained its price. The following are the latest letters we can find on the subject :- London October 4, 1844. At wool sales last night, it was announced by Simes and Co., brokers, that no further sales would occur till February. This put a temporary stop to the fall in price of 1d to ½d per lb., on all wools at and under 1s 6d which occurred previous evening, when Simes had to withdraw full two pages o...

SIAM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 March 1845
SIAM. BY the Jamsefjee Jeejeeloy, from Siam 24th j ultimo, lhere are accounts from that quarter. We understand that his Majesty has persisted in carrying into effect the expulsion of Mr Hunter, and that, accordingly, that gentleman may be looked for daily by the Guaja. The King still continues to monopolize the sugar, which he will only sell at very high rates, The ¡ Jamseljee Jeejeekoy loaded a cargo of last year's j crop at 9^ ticals per picul. The sugar now iu store ts of very iuferior quality, but the King in- sists upon its al! being cleared off, at exorbitant prices, before he will allow the new crop to be bought. There were four or five vessels wailing for cargoes wheu the Jamseijee Jeejeeboy left. The King seems determined to discourage all European traders from resorting lo his port, ap- parently for thc purpose of making his monopoly complete ; and it is thought that he means to carry on thc trade with his own vessels, sending his sugar to Singapore, aud briogiug back good...

NEW ZEALAND, BY letters received from Wellington, we regret to heir that the Waikato natives, who recently arrived ajt Wan- ganui with hostile intentions, have been committing thé most dreadful outrages.

TALLOW AND LARD. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 March 1845
I TALLOW AND LARD. I To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald* Gentlemen-Lard has been bought, by our merchants at 28s. The returns in the London tnaiket will probably show that it will excel (allow in price, quality for quality, full 25 per cent. Lard has hitherto, like pork, beef, bacon, hams, candles, and butter, bceu imported in great quantities. The import of such commodi- ties into (his colony, destitute as it is of mines and manufactures, and having no exports worth ; consideration, save wool and oil, may* to some, I appear a remote proof, but, to me, a direct and palpable proof of the perverse and insane way in which, the capital of thc colony (both its own «nd borrowed) has, during the last ten years, been invested. It bas been used up i in the exaltation of prices of lands and chatties ; not (as it ought to have been) in creating',>anything: which did not exist before« 4 population of 150,000 souls occupies a territory greatër than all England, containing not so much...

LARD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 March 1845
LARD«. The following important article is from the Sydney Herald : " Oar attention has been directed to a paragraph in the Maitland-Mercury, on the production-of lard, which bears on the important question of exporting the oil expressed from that substance. ¡We are informed by our contemporary that 3632 pounds of lard were produced from 39 pigs, at the boiüng-dowu establishment at Windermere, which makes an average of 93 pounds of lard to each pig. Let us examine the exportable value- of this product in oil and artificial spermaceti. We use the word spermaceti, as best suited to a popular article : the chemical name for the substance pro- duced is stearic acid. Two-thirds of lard consist of oil of fine quality, which for a variety of pur- poses is used as a substitute for olive and almond oils, and is superior to sperm oil. It is extracted from simple pressure from the unrendered fat. I he remaining third is stéarine, from which the common stéarine candle is made, and which, by a si...
