AFFAIRS OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845

AFFAIRS OF SPAIN. NOTWITHSTANDING the pains taken by Nar vaez to preserve peace by securing the fealty and services of the army, Zurbano has succeeded iii raising the standard of revolt in Old Castile, an example of insurrection that ts being followed in other provinces. The Indicateur of Bordeaux states that news had been received there that Burgos, Santander, and St. Sebastian had joined in the trovenieut. This, however, requires con- firmation. One thing is certain, however, that General Zurbauo is at the head of a body of men who are formidable, as much by (heir cha racter and exploits, as hy their number*. They are mostly jld soldiers who served «fèder him during the civil war, and who ktiow their com- mander well, and trust him. The country, too, in which the insurrection has broken out, the Sierra de Cameros, is most difficult of approach, .nd with a very small body of troops he may be able to set Narvaez's at my at defiance for month«. Add to this that the -country is one wi...

PUNCH'S GUIDE TO PARTIES. [FROM PUNCH.] I To those who are just emerging from the ver- dancy oí youth, and to those «young men io the city"'who wish lo " wriggle " themselves inte good society, Pu «ich affectionately addresses the following advice - commiserating the pitiable mortifications inflicted OB young gentlemen whom he has seen defiling drawing-rooms (con- secrated to evening parties and full dress) with railway-pattern trousers and Blucher boots. Keenly pitying the situation of others who have found themselves in the very midst of the unci- vilised orgies of a bachelor's feed, adorned with satin waistcoats and full dress stocks, he benevo- lently publishes an infallible scale of eveuing dress, marked and arranged from the var ous terms in which invitations are usually conveyed, that the inexperienced aspirant to elegant society may not be at a loss.

EMIGRATION FUND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845

EMIGRATION FUND. WE continue our extracts from the Parliamentary documents. It will be observed that the Governor has acted as the greatest patriot could wish, by urging, in every possible way, the necessity of emigration, and by writing to Lord Stanley the instant he had funds, recommending that emigrants should im- mediately be sent out to the full extent allowed by act of Parliament. This must put an end at once, and for ever, to the evil surmises which have been circulated as to his Excellency's conduct in reference to tins fund. Copy of a Despatch from Governor Grey to Lord Stanley.) Government Route, Adelaide, November 16, 1813. My Lord-I have the honor to transmit a series of re- solutions which were adopted by the Legislative Council at the last meeting of the late session, which tonk place on the 14th instant, and which the Council have requested me to communicate to your Lordship. The object of these resolutions is to press upon your Lordship's notice the great benefit whi...

THE CORN TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845

THE CORN TRADE. FOLLOWING up the recent earnest recommendations of our Van Diemen's Land contemporaries to the colonists there, to ship com, &c, to England, we j again bring the same subject before the settlers of j this province. The best wheat here now brings no more than 2s. 3d. per bushel-a ruinous price ; and we tell the colonists, distinctly and advisedly, that the price will never rise in the face of such an immense superabundance-calculated at 200,000 j bushels of the present year's crop, and 50,000 bushels of last year's-as at present exists in the colony. On the subject of shipment to England, we subjoin some very opportune remarks from the Launctston Examiner^ to which we beg to direct the special attention of both our merchants and settlers : Several months ago we intimated that London com- panies would not object to insure wheat shipped from hence to London, and we are gratified in being able to «tat« that an arrangement had been made by a house largely interest...

(Copy of Despatch from Lord Stanley tc Governor Grey.) Downing-street, August 12, 1644. Sir-I have to acknowledge the receipt of your des- patch, No. 27, of 19th February, reporting, that by a re- cent sale of public lands, a sum of £2354 ls had been realised, which, together with a previous balance of £200 in favor of the land fund, would leave about £2600 to the credit of the fund. I approve of your suggestions in regard to the appliea» ^ tion of a moiety of this sum to emigration purposes, and TB I have given the requisite instructions to the Commis- - siooers to take immediate measures for sending out emi- grants to South Australia, and to make such a selection as will include only those who come under the class of bona fide laborers. With respect to the future mode of disposal of the proceeds arising from the sale of public lands, it is for ! the present only necessary to inform you, that whenever I you may report that the general revenue, exclusive of the land fund, shall be s...

(Copy of a Despatch from Governor Grey to Lord Stanley.) Government House, Adelaide, Feb. 19, 1844. My Lord - I have th« honour to report, for your Lord- ship's information, that at a sale of public lauds which took place on the '6th instant, lands were sold to the amount of £2354 Is., and that there was previously ia the Treasury a balance of £200 in favour of the land, fund account ; there will consequently be in the Colonial Treasury on the 16th March next, about £2600 to the credit of the land fund. By the >9th clause of the recent act of Parliament for regulating the sale of waste lands belonging to the Crown in the Australian Colonies (5 and 6 Viet. c. 37), one half equal part, at least, of such sum of £2600 should be appropriated towards defraying the expense of the re- moval, from the United Kingdom, of emigrants not pos- sessing the means of paying the expenses of their pas- sage to this coaurry -, but by special instructians from the Lords ef tho Treasury, under date th...

Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845

THE BIBLE SOCIETY MEETING, AT THE WESLEYAN CHAPEL.-Theeditor of the Regis- ter says it is not his practice to garble or muti- late his reports« We consider this a most re- markable statement, after the very strong proof to the contrary at various times during his career in Adelaide. In the present instance ne ask him whether he spoke one half of what be has reported himself to have said, and whether he has not twissed the expressions of his Honor ? But, in order to strengthen his bare word, we must ask him to back any assertion he may make by the evidence of any other person at the mreting. Our report, ive are happy to say, is considered strictly correct; and is not impugned by our contemporary, un- less the assertion of his own purity is an insinua- tion against his neighbour's. We can conceive j that the feelings of Mr James Allen are exces- sively sore, as his motives were so very thread- bare upon tho face of the report.

EXPORTS TO THE CAPE.—PRICE OF GRINDING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845

EXPORTS TO THE CAPE.-PRICE OF GRINDING. WE are glad to see that our enterprising mer- chants at last intend exporting a share of our produce to the Cape of Good Hope. The following extract from a letter, dated 94th December, which we have recently received from a correspondent at the Cape, is highly satis- factory, and we have no doubt that Cape Town will become one of our best markets. Our cor- respondent says - I observe ia one of your papers a grand mistake as to the quotation of the prices of wheat ia this and the Mauritius market, and likewise ia holding the latter as the preferable market for your surplus stocks of graia. Wheat here, at the period you name, was considerably higher than your quotation. Our present price is 7s the bushel ; and here the consignor is not saddled with enormous and exorbitant charges imposed at the Mauri- tius. This is also a port placed on a more favorable footing than the Mauritius ; here is a. free port-no har- bour dues or port charges of any de...

It contains iu its established institutions, its domestic habits, and its long-tried comforts, the greatest amount of happiness which, in this world, it is our por " tion to enjoy ; and had I the eloquence equal to the intense power and intimate sincerity of the conviction which is excited in me, and the feelings which such sentiments create, it would be to ctnvey to the youth of England that their attachments to their country cannot be too great, for as it grows with them, and unites in the ma- turity of manhood, with soundness of judgment, it will secure and mai»tain for the future that noble distinction which for ages has charac- terised the British empire in the glorious annals of European civilisation."

(Copy of a Letter from Admiral Hawker to Lord Stanley.) Ashford Lodge, Petersfield, January 5,1144. My Lord-I beg leave to address your Lordship on the subject of the present ansióos state of the settlers in South Australia, arising from the distress likely to come upon them, from the insufficient number of laborers, compared with the wants of the colony. I am the more induced to lay before your Lordship the condition of the colony, and to beg your kind attention to my observa- tions, from the interest I feel in that country, having three sons there, with whom I em in constant corres- pondence. They may, I believe, be considered fair jud-es of the state of the colony, as they ere generally, reckonèd steady good settlers ; the eldest having, unso- licited, been chosen as a magistrate by the Governor, I who testifies to their good conduct.

THE STUDENTS GRATITUDE TO GRAHAM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845

TflE STUDENTS* GRATITUDE TO GR1RAV. BY a number of rejected Medical Students, a very respectable meeting was held on Frida}', in the Lecture-room of a certain large hospital, for the purpose of voling an address of thanks to Sir James Graham, for the medical reform bill, which he meant to introduce next session. The chair (namely, the Anatomical Teacher's), was taken by Mr Potts, of Guy's, who, considering that he had been plucked al the hall three times, was unanimously determined the fittest person to occupy it. A young gentleman, in a Tweed wrapper, with a stick projecting from the side pocket, whose name, we understand, was Faker, rose to move the address. He commenced by claiming, in the usual terms, indulgence for his inexperience as an oraior ; and then, plunging in medias res, de- clared his conviction that Sir James Graham was a brick. He (Mr Faker, not Sir James Graham) had had the honour of being plucked - (cheers.) He considered that it was an honour-(renewed cheering.) ...
