The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 March 1845

                    The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1845.   BY the Emma, and William, we have received files of papers from the various neighbouring colonies, from the Cape, and from India. We do not, how- ever, observe anything new of importance. By way of Sydney private letters have been re- ceived, which state that parties in London are making active exertions to get up a Mining Com- pany. J.B. Montefiore, Esq., and Colonel Gawler, were taking an interest in it. Mr Montefiore was   indefatigable, as usual, on the emigration question, and had repeatedly waited on Lord Stanley in re-   ference to it. 100 persons were to be sent in the   first vessel. Mr M. deserves the heartfelt thanks of the colonists for his zeal and labors in their cause.

THE GERMANS IN NEW ZEALAND: [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 March 1845

THE GERMANS IN NEW ZEALAND: THE Rev. Mr Kavel has received a communi-   cation from a number of families, residing near Nelson, in the Middle Island of New Zealand, expressing their anxiety to remove to this co- lony. It is elated that they are industrious married people, part of whom went out along with those who recently arrived here via Ho barton, and that part of them emigrated three years ago. They are all in the same predica- ment, however, having bought and paid for land of which they have never got possession, and are without the means of obtaining a decent livelihood. The men can only get three days' work in the week, and for that the sole payment is 10lbs. of flour, which they have to carry a   distance of twenty miles. The natives, too, have given them great annoyance, and have in- timated that if they do not remove by a certain   time, they will drive them off, and destroy their property. The number of persons is about one hundred. ...

MR. RIDLEY'S REAPING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 21 March 1845

    MR. RIDLEY'S REAPING MACHINE. IN another column will be found a letter from Mr J. W. Bull, Mount Barker, in which he claims the honor of inventing the above ma- chine. The first mention of this machine was made in the local newspapers about the beginning of September, 1843, and the present is the first public intimation of a claim by Mr Bull to its   prior discovery, while, all along from that time,   Mr Ridley has openly claimed and received the honor. In these circumstances, we cannot help thinking that Mr Bull has either been miracu- lously modest, or that be is now sufficiently hardy. The matter, however, is too important to be passed over in silence, and we have accordingly made careful enquiry in reference to the claim made by Mr Bull.   On looking into the newspaper files, we find that on Saturday, 2nd September, a letter,   under the signature of a "Wheat-grower" was   &nbs...

MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845

MEXICO. THE intelligence is unusually full and interesting. The Diario del Gobernó (Government official) publishes a despatch, dated the 29th of July, from President Houston to Santa Anna, replying to General Woll's manifesto announcing the intended commencement of hostilities on the part of Mexico, and charging the Government of Texas with bad faith in reference to the negotiation carried on during the spring by the Texian commissioners in Mexico. General Houston meets the charge of! perfidiousness with proper spirit. He states, that j the designation of Texas, as a *' department of the j Mexican confederation," in the article proposing' the ba>is of an arrangement between the two countries, was exceedingly offensive, and that the acts of the commissi »uers were, in consequence, j disowned Since M xieo, he continues, has de- clared her intentio i to wage war, he hopes there ¡ .will be no delay, and he invites Santa Anna at once to exert all the means in his power.

NRW INVENTIONS IN DRESS AND USEFUL LUXURIES. ¡The forais and varieties of costume, and tho, ! multiplicities of elegant articles of personal aod j household luxury, have attained to such high , artistic perfection that one can hardly, with jus- tice, refuse to the inventors the merits and ho- nours hitherto exc'usively accorded to the pro- fessors of whet aie designated, par excellence, the fine arts.

TO MR JOHN ROBERTS. " Woo builds a House to God, and not to fame, Will ne'er pollute the marble with his name1' SIB-At length you haveemerged from the dark- ness congenial to you, and stand forth the avowed slanderer who has been endeavouring, by inuendoes in letters and paragraphs, to injure the reputa tion of " one of our leading ministers.'* Notoriety, to some men, is like the liberty of the \ press to Englishmen : it is the air they breathe-if ] they have it not, they die ! You have the egotism, and the ambition, to aim at being a person of con- ; sequence. Being foiled in your attempts in one direction, you have set up, on your own account, j as a builder of chapels, an inviter of ministers, as j a wholesale dealer in imputations and insinuations on other and better men, and a retail pettifogger in all that concerns religion and religionists.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. A fair amount of business bas been done during ibe week, at prices last quoted. We have no al- teration to note, except an advance in Taylor's and Barclay's Porter, which may now be quoted, the former at £5 I Os to £6, and the latter £4 I Os to £5. By a late Launceston paper, ve observe that the sugar landed at Hobartou, from the Dawson was disposed of at £28 per ton. Tile Port Phillip Gazette stales that Messrs Watson and Wight had received notice that a parcel of their tallow was sold at 43s 6d., whilst Russian tallow was only realizing 41s 6d. At a sale by auction, by Mr T. S. Mort, last Saturday, 7 tons tallow, Hamilton's brand, realized £29 per lon. A sample of the Guano, discovered by Captain Underwood, has been forwarded to his Excellency Sir George Gipps, who has requested, we believe, Mr Grayling to analyse it. _ Í

SCOTCH BANKING. [FROM THE ATLAS.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845

SCOTCH BANKING. I f_FBOtt THE ATLAS.] THE Scotch movement in defence of their bank i fig- system continues to advance. A series of resolutions were passed at a general meeting of the county of Inverness, the subject of which, it is understood, was prepared by th * Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. A s in all material .expects they are identical with the resolutions passed at Edinburgh, which we have already given, we cannot refrain from recapitulating them. We cannot help expressing our surprise that a body of commercial tuen like the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce should have lent thoir influence lo the support of a system which is false in principle, unduly dependent upou Eng- land, unfair to the people in general, and of ser vice to no party except a few bankers who is-ue their own notes. We know uot by what rea- soning they can bring themselves to believe that the profits which those bankers derive upon a circulation of two millions and a half sterling are the chief means which enable t...

A COLUMN FROM PUNCH. MENTAL SCIENCE.—NEW AND IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845

A nnT JTMN FROM PUNCH. I MENTAL SCIENCE.- NBW AND IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. MB PUNCH begs to inform his numerous readers that he has invented a new system of artificial me- mory, to be called "Mnemonics for the Many," the only thing, almost, except food and clothing, which the said many are in want of. The principle on which his system is based, is that of associating facts with sensations. Inas- much as every blockhead has nerves of feeling, its applicability will obviously be universal, Mr P. trusts, therefore, that he has not christened it pre- sumptuously. The following illustrations will sufficiendy explain its nature : Suppose the facts to be impressed on the mind to be that the Alexandrian library was burnt B.C. 47. Let the student, in the act of committing it to memory, thrust a large needle, as far as he can, into any convenient part of his person. " Gunpowder treason," the boys sing on the 5th of November, .* shall never be forgot. " To make sure of that, let him, as he learns ...
