Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
Wa are glad to observe that the important undertaking of renewing Trinity Church is in rapid progress. The church will be much more substantial, larger, and loftier than it was originally. The stone now used is of excel- lent quality ; the part renewed will be five feet wider, and the walls of the whole building will be raised six feet higher than before. From an advertisement io our last, it appears that the sum of ¿339 has been received on account of the expense of the above alterations and improvements, and we understand that £100 more will be required. We should hope that there will be no difficulty in raising this amount, which is a trifle to such a large and wealthy body as the members of the English Church. AuoNfiST the horses lately imported, we are pleased to observe a few promising young carting colts and fillies, and some useful stock horses. " Van Tr. mp," so well known ss a winner in Van Diemen's Land, is also among the lot. He appears (in spite of all that has been re-...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA—ENRESENTATIVE INSTIUTIONS. [From THE COLONIAL GAZETTE.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845

I [pltOlâ THE COLONIA!. «AZeTTs] WE iali.naied last week our intention of re- verting to the movement in favour of teptesen tative institutions in South Australia. It is our purpose, in the remarks we are about to offer, to keep in vie>v the peculiar position of that colony, and its peculiar cl at tus upon Govern- ment-uot only for the importance it promises to attaia through its mineral and o'.her wealth, but also on account of the scam! alo us treatment it has experienced at the hands of the Colonial Office, in the nutter of its land and emigration fu-i'!.

MARRIAGE OF THE QUEEN OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
- 1 ! MARRIAGE OF THE QUEEN OF SPAIN. j WE annouced on the 25th inst, that the marriage ¡ of isabella of Spain with the son of Don Carlos j was an affair which had been definitively settled : between Queen Christina and the Spanish exile at | Bourges. The Papal bulls reached Madrid on the i I Otb, but before they were handed over te the j Spanish Government, Christina had to ratify the j conditions agreed upon for the matrimonial con- > tract, which, being accepted and signed, wt-re read over, and the I2ththe bulls were formally delivered up. The principal conditions of the contract may i be summed up as follows :-» í 1. Will be annulled by an official act, the legis- ; lative delaration decreed in 1834, under the minis- ' try of Martinez de la Rosa, hythe estamentos which the said ministry had convoked, and will be de- clared null and void, for the past as the future, the first decree depriving Don («arlos and his successors of their eventual rights to the Crown of Spain.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
TO lUB EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. j SIR-An extraordinary error has occurred this year in fixing the date of É aster. The almanacks, one and all, point out the 23id instant as the date on which Easter Sunday falls. The Church Ca- lendar also gives it on the same day (and by this table, I presume, the almanacks have been framed). Unaccountable as it may appear, it is decidedly an error. Easter Sunday is always " the first Sunday after the full moon, which happen» upon, or next after, the S 1st day of March ; and if the full moon happens on a Sunday, the Easter day is the Sun- day after.'* Amongst your scientific readers, Mr Editor, I doubt not but that there are some who can explain the apparent inconsistency : and awaiting their reply, -I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, A FEASTER. [We have heard that lhere is an Ecclesiastical full moon, which is difierent from that in the heavens ; and we are informed that the latter and the former require to be reconciled at intervals. It seem...

LORD STANLEY AT LIVERPOOL. [FROM THE ATLAS] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
- 1 LORD STANLEY AT LIVERPOOL. I [FROM THE ATLAS J 1 AGRICULTURAL dinners and societies for the promotion of the interests of farmers and la- borers hare been exceedingly «Mimerons of late, and there is hardly a territorial lord in the laud who has not proclaimed his specific for the un- happy lot of that unfortunate section of th population. It is truly lamentable to behold the childish ignorance or the hollow hypocrisy of their recommendations, which touch upon every imaginable remedy except the obvious on&lt; of sacrificing a portion of th ir rents. The no bl*' and agrestic mind, euUzhtt-ned by the torch of self-intet «st, has at length discovered that inadeouate wag* s are the true cause of discoo tent, poverty, and incendiaiism ; and suggest? strongly to the class of tenants that they should have bowels of compassion, and pay their la borers a little more liberally. To this the tenant naturally replies-"First lower my rent, »»ive me a lease, or instead of money take a l...

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, MARCH 25. 1845. THE "PHOEBE," FROM HOBARTON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
The South Australian. ADELAIDE : TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 1845. &nbsp; THE " PHOBE," FROM HOBARTON. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THIS vessel brings newspapers (in the usual straggling and irregular way that our files have always come from Hobarton) to the 6th March. The markets will be found in another column. Strong debates were still going on in the news- papers respecting the new duties and the state of the finances. A long report of a finance commit- tee was published. They recommend taxation, but think that " docking" has gone far enough. Captain Swanston, however, objected to the latter ; he said-" You must tax to the amount of £30,000, and dock to the amount of £20,000, or you will saddle the colony with a permanent debt." In another column we have given English in- telligence, chiefly from Murray's Review, to the 21st November. &nbsp;
SUPPLY OF WATER TO ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
SUPPLY OF WATER TO ADELAIDE. &nbsp; THIS subject is now exciting attention among the citizens, it being understood that water could be brought from either Brown Hill or Greens Hill Creeks - in quantity, sufficient to supply the city - in quality, superior to that taken from the pools of the Torrens, and at an ultimate saving upon the amount paid to the water-car riers. As the water-carrying absorbs a consi- derable proportion of the labor and capital of the colony, which could be much more benefi- &nbsp; cially applied, and as the supply of pure water &nbsp; &nbsp; is an object of the utmost importance, we should &nbsp; be glad to see any feasible plan for such an ob ject laid before the public for consideration. It has also been proposed that an Artesian well should be made, which we think would meet with more support than that of bringing water from the hills. We shall be glad to become the medium of communicating to the public any &...
STRANDING OF THE BARQUE "SARAH SCOTT." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
STRANDING OF THE BARQUE "SARAH SCOTT.'' &nbsp; &nbsp; INFORMATION had reached Melbourne, on &nbsp; Monday evening, that the barque Sarah Scott, &nbsp; on her way from Sydney to this port, had, on the night of Friday, the 17th ult., run ashore in Corner Inlet, on the North Shore, about 16 miles &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; from where the Clonmel was wrecked, lt seems &nbsp; on the previous night the weather was very hazy, with light winds; the vessel was streering between Kent's and Hogan's Groups, when the breeze suddenly died away, and the vessel, losing steer age way, was drifted by the current to Wilson's Promontory, on a sand bank, near which she &nbsp; struck, but floated again at high water, when the &nbsp; &nbsp; flood drove her in where she now lies. At the time time of the vessel striking, the captain did not calculate he was so near th...

* It must also be borne in mind, that the Port Phillipines feed sheep in place of cultivating the ground, and import a large proportion of their corn. From this cause they have a greater shipping trade, while we must have a greater in- ternal traffic. &nbsp; † See Exodus xxi. 14. — Deut. xxii. 25.
BANKING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
BANKING. &nbsp; AN advertisement in another column announces &nbsp; &nbsp; that the Bank of South Australia will reduce in- &nbsp; &nbsp; terest allowed on deposits above £20 to two per cent, from and after the 31st March next. We believe the reason is, that they have more money of their own than they require for the bu- siness that is now done ; and, as they cannot pro- fitably employ the cash deposited with them, they cannot reasonably hold out inducements to capitalists &nbsp; to lodge money with them. In such circumstances, indeed, the Bank should rather make a charge for the trouble of taking charge of cash. The Banks have not here the British funds, Ex- chequer Bills, and other sure modes of investment for their cash that they have in Britain, and con- &nbsp; sequendy cannot, in proportion, employ so exten- sively the cash deposited with them as the Banks in England. We are therefore not surprised at the reduction which h...
CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 25 March 1845
CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. AT the late sessions, two men have been convicted &nbsp; of capital crimes — have been condemned to death — and will be executed on the 29th instant. One of them (who has assumed the name of &nbsp; &nbsp; James Douglas) was found guilty of the crime of &nbsp; rape upon the person of a married woman ; and the &nbsp; other, a native, of the crime of murder. We have &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; searched in vain for a single redeeming feature in &nbsp; &nbsp; either case. In the first, the criminal shewed him- self to be thoroughly hardened in crime. Not con- tent with the horrible offence of which he was found guilty, he robbed the poor woman's house, and afterwards, both before the Commissioner and the &nbsp; Judge, harrowed her feelings by the insulting and unfeeling questions which he put to her. It was acknowledged on all hands, that never before, in our courts, had been seen such a...
