ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Hobart Town Courier). [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 March 1845
ENGLISH NEWS. I (Front the Hobart Town Courier). BY the Arequipa, we have received a small ad dition to our file of English papers. Although she did not leave the British shores until the 2nd De- cember, we have no later date than the 25th of November. There is no news of importance. The best intelligence we can give to the colonists, is the fact of our wheat being in great favour with the English farmer wherever it has been tried. The wheat sent home by the Kinnear, which, we are informed, was by ne means a first-rate sample, realised 58s. per quarter. This being at the rate of 7s. 3d. a bushel, would leave a net value of from 3s. 6d. to 4s. a bushel in the colony. Every settler ought to make an effort to send home as much as possible. It is the only present mode to avert the otherwise certain ruin of all engaged in agricultural pursuits. We hope, also, that the Mutual Insur- ance Company, which proposed to take their pre- miums at 4s. per bushel, will be immediately formed and vig...
TASMANIAN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 March 1845
TASMANIAN WHEAT. j We have the satisfaction, of seeiug the wheat nf this colony noticed in most favorable terms tn the London press. We not'ce in a la'e number of the Agricultural Gazette the followirg para gr «ph uj».«n the subject: - VAV DIKMES'S LAND WUEAT.-The accompanying box contains a few ears of wheat, which «rere crown this year at Bushy Grove, near Stanmore, on a farm in the occupa» lion of Mr Slew-art Mi'j&lt;iribanks, M.P. The seed iras im- ported in 844 from Van Diemen's Land, and was 8«ld as seed wheat last autumn, in Maik Lane, at GSs and 78* per quarter. It yielded rather more than four quarters (32 bushels) per acre, which is considered a Very g«o4 trop in that uei^htmuthood. The present sample is an average one, and «as only kept by the bailiff of Mr XIajot »banks for his own guidance, and not for purposes of exhihitiou. There is a quantity of wheat 'ate.lv arrived from ¡he colony, and were is expected. I «rill prod«c* a sample, and you can try a sn all qua...

AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 March 1845
AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. OH Tuesday evening last a numerous and respectable meeting was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, Gawler Place, for the purpose of forming a Bible Society, Aux« iliary to the British and Foreign Bible Society of Lon- don. On the motion of the Rev. R. Haming, minister of (he Church of Scotland, seconded by the Rev. T. Q Stow, Congregational Minister, his Honor the Judge was called to the chair. His Honor explained to the meeting the object of their assembling, and gave a short notice of tl e parent society tn London, which was formed in 1804, and from small beginnings bad increased (like the grain of mus- tard seed), until now it dispersed its blessings in the ?re- motest corners of the globe. Many copies of the Bible had been sent to this colony by the society, and it was now high time that the colonists should manifest their gratitude by sending a mite to its fonds There wa«, to be sure, an excuse for them in not doiug so hitherto Settlers coming to a new country...
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 March 1845
. - - - ? I COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. I A fair amount of business has been done during the «eek, at prices iast quoted. We have no al- teration to note, except an advance in 'Javier's and Barclay's Porter, which may now be quoted, the former at £5 I Os to £6, and thc latter £4 10s to £-5. By a late Launceston paper, we observe that the sugar landed at Hoharton, from the Dawson was disposed of at £28 per ton. The j Port Phillip Gazette stales that Messrs Watson j and Wight had received notice that a parcel of their tallow was sold at 43a £&lt;'., whilst Russian j tallow was only realizing 4ls Gd. At a sale by j auction, by Mr T. 8. Mort, last Saturday, 7 lons tallow, Hamilton's brand, realized £29 per ion. A sample of the Guano, discovered by Captain Underwood, has been forwarded to his Excellency Sir George Gipps, who has requested, we believe, j Mr Grayling to analyse it.

THE CONDEMNED FELONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 March 1845
! THE CONDEMNED FELONS. THE town was electrified ye trrday by the an. nouncement that the felon, Douglas, was re pr ie ved. The simple explanation of the matter is, that in 1841 the English law as to the crime of rape was altered. It is not .now punished with death in England. In this colony, only those Euglish laws which were in force previous to its establishment were adopted, so that the crime is still punishable with death by the laws in force here. At the same time the Govern- ment have thought it improper to punish with death a crime of which the punishment in Bri- tain is transportation for life. The sentence has therefore been commuted to transportation for life, lt is needless to disguise the fact that great disappointment and considerable dissatis- faction are both felt and expressed at this reso , lution of the executive, and it is certain that if ' there is any punishment in regard to which a distinction is required from the different circum- stances ot the two countries...
THE BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 28 March 1845
THE BIBLE SOCIETY. IN another column we give a faithful report of the proce dings of a meeting held on Tuesday evening last, for the purpose of establishing an Auxiliary Bible Society in Adelaide, in connec- tion with the British and Foreign Bible Society. Excepting a very unseemly interruption which was promptly put down by the voice of the as- sembly, the proceedings were most harmonious,, and as those assembled were the slits of all the various congregations in town, we augur well of the prospects of the society. We hail with pleasure the formation of this society, as it will tend to remedy that destitution of religious in- struction, which unquestionably exists, and may form the nucleus of other useful institu- tions. At the same time, we must remark with refe- rence to the alleged deficiency of biMes in the colony, that we expected to hear some facts, shewing that such deficiency exists, for we have heard it broadly stated that there is not a hut in the colony without a Bible, ...
