ENGLISH NEWS. FALMOUTH, FEB. 15th.-A most fearful and tre- mendous hurricane has prevailed from E.S.E. for the &nbsp; &nbsp; last 24 hours, along the coast. An instance of great intrepidity occurred to day. When the wind was a its heighth, two men were seen on board a coal hulk in the harbour, exerting themselves to the utmost in pumping her, and likewise a coal bag hoisted 0n a spar, indicating distress, lt being known that the hulk was leaky, the circumstance was talked of amongst a crowd of persons, who were looking on, as one of the greatest peril, and unless the men were taken off immediately, that they would perish. At this moment. Lieutenant Field, R.N. Commander of the Commissioners' brig Rapid, happened to be pass- ing, and on his hearing the circumstance, hastened t0 the pier, and engaged a six oared long boat to attempt to arrest the poor fellows from destruction. The gal- lant officer not only bribed the boatmen with his pocket, but likewise shared their ...
RURAL CALENDAR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 11 August 1838
RURAL CALENDAR. AUGUST.-August, ia Australia, as regards the sea sons, corresponds with the month of February in the northern half x>f the globe, and gives ample employ ment to the farmer, being the general spring sea son, when ground bas to be prepared for the dif ferent grasses. Peas should be sown as early as pos» sible on ground which has previously been well pul* verized by repeated harrowing and rolling, it may be manured at the rate of about ten carts of manure per rood, or forty carts per acre. If the seed be sowed broadcast upon the manured land, it should be in the proportion of about two and a half or three bushels per acre, the whole being immediately after ploughed in with a moderately deep furrow, and the surface afterwards smoothed by harrowing. It is, however, thought to be more advantageous to drill la the seed, as this affords an opportunity for cleansing the crop at a subsequent period by hoeing and break ing.

ME. FISHER's WITHDRAWAL FROM THE MEETINGS OF COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 11 August 1838
ME. FISHE&'s WITHDRAWAL FROM THE MEETINGS OF COUNCIL. MOST gladly shall we hail' the day when the attention of our readers as well as ourselves may be withdrawn from the consideration of every subject bearing the semblance of party politics qr party feeling, The grand objects we would desire to keep before us, are the furnishing the colony with such a compendium of events abroad as may be of general interest here, giving at the same time every particular of the progress of this settlement that may be interesting to our Í; íeíuls at home or elsewhere. But the extraordinary proceedings of the last 18 months, compel us at times, apparently to deviate ; and we now lay before our readers the copy of a correspondence» explanatory of the reasons which induced Mr. Fisher to discontinue his attendance at the Council-because we consider the fact and the reasons very important. The fact has been long known-the reasons were made public by him for the first time at one of the late public...

THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. Quid verum, atque decens euro, et rogo, et omnis in ho[?] sum.---HOR. EP., lib. 1, ep. 1, v [?]. ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 11,1838. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 11 August 1838
THE SOUTHERN AUSTRALIAN. verum, atqut decent mitro, et "rogo, «f omni» in hot shin.-Ho*. EPi, lib. 1, ep. 1,V ll. AlïËLAiDB : SATURDAY, AUGUST ^1,1838. IF the South Australian Colon j has one peculiar characteristic, we should say that it isa certain spirit of vitality which enabled^ to rise at first amidst singularly adverse Circumstances, and since its es^hlishment to flourish in an unprece dented manner, apparently in proportion to the -extent and force of opposing influences. Its early history is one of arduous contest* as well as of triumphant victory. Its course latterly has been the same. Afc believe that such will be the result of its present position; and should difficulties still attend its further progress, such we trust will be its history for the future It would have been wisdom in those who thought it ali easy thing to undermine the authority of the Board of Commissioners and to throw the Colony back into the hands of the Crown, if they had considered this characterist...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 11 August 1838
TURKEY.- The Augsburg Gazette has a letter from Constantinople, from which we make the following extract:— a new cause of dissension has arisen between Lord Ponsonby and the Porte. The British &nbsp; consul in Candia had reported to the Ambassador that in consequence of orders from the viceroy, all English merchandize, although it may have previously paid duties at a Turkish Port, and obtained a general licence for the whole of the Ottoman empire, is com- pelled to pay new duties on entering any port of that Island. This measure proved thatthe Provinces under the dominion of Mehemet Ali were totally withdrawn from the sovereignty of the Porte. Lord Ponsonby has, therefore, taken the necessary steps to induce the Turkish government, already highly in- censed, to do all that is required for the maintenance of its authority. His lordship has also instructed the consul at Candia to protest against these new exac- tions, and at the same time has written to Malta re- quiring that ...

CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOM IN MADAGASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 18 August 1838
CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOM IN MADAGASCAR» ANCIENT martyrology is the common property of Christendom, and instances of genuine martyrdom/* in modern days, in whatever section of christians occurring belong to the universal church. They are attestations to our common christianity, and not to denominational peculiariaes. The records of such events, , therefore, befit the pages of an unsectarian paper.-The London Missionary Society began its mission in Madagascar, about 20 years since.
