NEW ZEALAND. j BY the arrival of the Bee, we are put in posses- sion of paper* to a later dale than have been heretofore received. The feeling against Governor Fitzroy appears to be very strong, and also to be on the increase, j The Spectator, in a rather violent article, de , noun ces his policy in no measured terms, and I affirms that his performance of the responsible I duties allotted to him ii» in exactly an inverse ! ratio to the promises he made on his arrival in I the colony. I A_t Wanganui the proceedings of the native* had been very outrageous.

We would beg to, warn the criminals of the other colonies that this is by no means a hat boor of refuge for them ; that* in fact, there is no sympathy with them here in any shape. The police are all free and respect- able men, and will not be tempted to league with them. The police force is also extremely efficient, as was am- ply proved at the late sessions by the capture of the wild black, in an almost impenetrable country ; by the capture of the d...

UNITED STATES. Our advices from New Tiork, by the arrivals during the week, are to the lödi Oct. Ali attention was centered in the fast ap- proaching Presidential election, in which are involved the tariff and annexation questions, and the returns troto the various minor elections were eagerly watched for indications as to the probable success of either party, a point which seems to be held dou tful. Five of these elec tiona had been he d ; in Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Ohio ; an;!, as far as these local conleys tu av be considered indi cati ve of the result of the Presidential canvass, the Whig party have no reason to complain, Maryland had elected a Whig governor; but, as this re urn exhibited a considerable falling off as compared with their majority at the last election, it. was regarded as an >udica(ion of weakness rather than of strength. In New Jersey, the bigs had swept everything before j them, having elected their governor by a de ! cided majority,...

EXTRACTS FROM THR LATEST ENGLISH PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 March 1845
EXTRACTS FROM THR LlTEST ENGUStf PAPERS. MANCHESTER. - STATE OF TRADE. - We extract the fol- lowing from the monthly circular of Messrs M'Nair, Greenhow, and Irving :-" Manchester, October 3lst. The present position of this, market has hid no parallel during the last eight years, as regards the actual scarcity of both cloth and yarns. Throughout the month, the demand has been greatly in excess of the supply ; and, at this date, most of the spinners and manufacturera are under eng gemenrs for a month or six weeks to come. We continue exempt from the influence of any specula- tive feeling. At the «ame time, many parchases of cloth have been made during the month, un .'er aa apprehen- sion that the dissatisfaction prevailing amongst the operatives would terminate either in a partial " turn out" or in an increase of wages. !t is to this cause that we must attribute, in some measure, the remarkably ex- tensive business that has been transacted, and the higher rates that have been obtaine...

Sin-The favorable results winch have aitendeJ the use of machinery io the ingathering of the corn dj ring túe pa*t harvest, having been brought so prominent! y before the no- tice of the public, I feel it a dufy which I owe to myself to troub e you with the following remarks on the origin an.; history of an event which his proved of such value lo the colony. On the 19th Sept;, 1843, "pursuant to public announce- ment, a meeting was held at Payne's Hote*, AdeUiúe, called by the members of th«* Corn lixchan^e Committee to exa- mine reaping-machine mode's, plan*, and drawings, and io adjudicate thereon." (See Santh Australian and the other papers of that date.) That meeting I attended, and, having been lon« before firmly persuaded that no machinery could be profitably ap- plied to standing corn in this climate except it attacked th¡ ear alone, I then and there presented a model of a mach in- to be constructed with such a view, its principles cons...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOOTH AUSTRALIAN. SIB-A. letter, signed *' John Roberts," appears in the Register of Wednesday la6t, declining to furnish the in formation about the Kensington Chapel, which I had re- cently called for, through the medium of your journal, unless my real name be given; Mr Koberts, at the same time, stating that the authorship of my letter '. is pub- licly imputed to one of our leading ministers." You can, if you think proper, satisfy Mr Roberts that I am a very bumble layman, with little ambition for notoriety, and in nowise inclined for newspaper contro versy. I am not, however, one of those who will tamely submit to see even ihe small subscriptions which have been contributed towards the Kensington Chapel mis- applied, far less will 1 connive at any of those deceptions which are charitably denominated pious frauds. Mr Roberts is therefore welcome to conceal the information I desire as long as he can, taking my word for it, at the same time, that >t will not ...

Mr Fisher appeared for the prosecution, and Mr Poulden for the defence. Mr Fi6hjr, in opening, characterised the transaction of which the prisoner was charged as one of the most impu- dent he ever heard of.
