BY. the above named vessel we are in possession of Portland Bay papers to the 9th inst., containing news from Melbourne to the 31st October, and from Van Diemen's Land to a like date. Numbers of people were still leaving Portland for this place, as will be seen from the extracts below. The elections for the Town Council at Sydney and Port Phillip were proceeding. Four new bur- gesses had been elected at Melbourne. In the heat of the contest, a dispute arose at the Boyal Exchange between the partizans of the several candidates, and one person fired a pistol at his political opponents. The police, however, for- \ tunately arrived, aud the disturbance was quelled. There had been great floods all over Van Die men's Land, and several substantial bridges were carried away. After the flood an enormous number of fish had been caught in the Tamar. In ten days three thousand dozen had been taken to Lau...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

VAN DIEM EN'S LAND ESCAPE OF A DEBTOR.-A few days since, a shoemaker named Carter, who had been im- prisoned upon a verdict obtained tn the court of requests, successfully put in practice an old ex- pedient for obtaining a release. T king advan- tage of his personal resemblance lo a visiter, and availing himself also of his coat and hat, he walked deliberately to the yard gate, re- quested the man on duty to let him out, and walked away without-having created the slightest suspicion. When the person whom he had so successfully personified appeared at the (rate he was challenged, and had considerable difficulty in making; it appear that he was really himself. But the debtor, once outside ibe boundaries of the prison, was free in law. and had cancelled his responsibility.-Launceston Examiner. '? ROBBERY.-On Tuesday morning, about two a.m., .Mr Chas. Reid,of Longford, was awakened by a noise, and having lighted a candle and taken a pistol io his hand, he left his bedroom and observed a...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 19 November 1844

PORT PHILLIP. COTTON. - Australia is already famous for wool, but it is not generally understood that she may produce cotton lo a still greater estent. We believe that the best judges of the article have given a very high character of the cotton produced in this country, and the climate is emi- nently titted for its production ; there are many families out of employment now, and it seems a good time to enter upon the cultivation of the cotton plant. It ts perennial here, and the pro- duction is easy, being three times'as much per acre the second year as the first. It produces from 200ibs. to 300!bs. an acre, worth in Britain about 2s per lb. The seed best suited to the climate is '* Sea Island." Tins wou'd be a more valuable production than au y other, with the exception of wool, and would bring in great j wealth into the Colony.-Port Phillip Gazelle.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. Adelaide, 20th Nov., 1844. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844

j ©orospott&cnce. i TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOU FH AUSTRALIAN. Adelaide, 20lh Nov., 1844. SIR - I li"Ve been expecting for some weeks past to see a pub'ic notice from the ti¡ilífr& of a reduction on the present high price of grinding wheat, and I understood this was only delayed until it was determined whether the charge in future should be eight-pence or nine-pence per bushel. Judge my surprise, therefore, to learn j that the millers have ente ed into a written agreement among themselves to exact the old rate of one shilling per bushel for another year. The fact is, the charge for grinding ought to have been reduced last year, as nothing could he more absurd than charging one shilling for grinding two shillings and sixpence worth of wheat. This year n e have a smaller ¡»readth of wh^at sown,and several additional mills having bepii eroded, the attempt to continue such a lax on tho public will hardly be successful ; and eve« if it vvere, the result would be hurtful to t...

Local Nrws. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844

vj_Eotal ¿lelos._^ / THE IkltNEs.-We understand that from Cjtp&in Bigot's mine between 300 and 400, say 340 tons, of ore, have now been extracted. Calculating the value of this at £21, the price which the first lot brought at Swansea, this quantity would be worth £7140; but the first lot was surface ore, and a great part of that since excavated is much superior. So very rich is some of the ore that a good metal has been extracted without the agency of a flux, simply by the action of fire. ST. ANDBEW'S DINNEB.-This dinner will be held on Monday, 2nd December, the Saint's An-1 niversary falling this year on the Saturday. A. L. ' Elder, Esq., has consented to fill the office ofj Chairman, and Messrs O. K. Richardson, and R. j A. MacEuen, that of Croupiers. The attendance, we hear, will be unusually numerous.

EDUCATION IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844

EDUCATION I>í NEW-SOUTH WALES. THE Legislative Council of the eastern colony have been greatly occupied, during the past ses- sion in devising a general educational system. A committee was appointed, who took the evidences of men of all classes upon the questions which were formerly published in this jorrnal, and which were extensively circulated throughout the colony. The conclusion to which the committee arrived was, that Lord Stanley's-system of education, which is new adopted in Ireland, was the one best fitted for the colony. The chief feature in this system is, that both the Protestant and Catholic versions of the Bible are excluded from theschools. In place of which a variety of Scripture lessons, selected and approved hy a Board of Education, composed cf Pro estants and Riman Catholics, shall be used in the schools. On or.e day. tn the week the children shall receive religious instruction from the clergy of the denomination to which they belong. The committee considered t...

THE FLOUR MILLERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844

THE FLOUR MILLERS. A LETTER from a correspondent on the subject of the price of grinding flour appears in another column. We understand the milters allege that the business will not pay them at a less rate than ls. per bushel. There are two points, how- ever, which we think they ought to take into consideration: we mean, the advantage of constant work, and the danger of mills being erected in the country districts. It is certain, as our correspondent says, that merchants will rather, at the present high rate of grinding, ex- port wheat than flour. The millers will, there. Hore, lose the grinding of a very large portion of the wheat grown in the province. Again, it is certain that if the farmers cannot get their corn ground at a lower rate, they will get up mills in their respective districts. The millers, therefore, have to consider whether it is probable they will have consta.it work at the present rates, aud whether it is better to grind nine months at a shilling, or the whole yea...

NORTH ADELAIDE. HINDMARSH, AND BOWDEN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 November 1844

j NORTH ADELAIDE. HINDMARSH, AND BOWDEN. HAVING paid a visit to the above localities a few days ago, we think a description of their " lions M may be of interest to the general reader. I Hindmarsh, with its sister Bowden, situated on each side of the Port road, though not the most lovely of villages, yet possess several points of interest to those who observe with ** curious eye n i the changes and revolutions in Colonies. When first established in 1838, the principal employment i of the inhabitants of Hindmarsh was brick-making. From that stage a considerable advance has been made, for it now possesses an extensive steam flour mill establishment, the property of Mr Ridley, who also has a manufactory of reaping machines ; a large brewery and a smelting furnace. The village of Bowden, which was more lately formed, is still in the initiatory stage of brick-making, ia which, however, its inhabitants excel. We visited first Mr Crawford's brewery, which is deservedly celebrated for the s...
