THE WINDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845
THE WINDS. ! Ye viewless minstrels of the sky ! 1 marvel not, in time gone by, That ye were deified ! For e'en in this our later day, You do a mighty rower display, ÂB o'er the waves we ride. Awful your power, when by your might You heave the wild waves ; crested white, Like mountains in your wrath ; Ploughing between them valleys deep, Which, to the-roused from sleep, Yawn like death's opening path. The sun, his rise and set we know ; The sea, we mark its ebb and flow The moon, her wax and wane ; The stars, man knows their courses well ; The comet's vagrant path can tell, But you his search disdain. While musing thus my fancy stirs. And whispers, " ye are messengers" Who leave no path untrod ; And when, as now, at midnight hour, I hear your voice in all its power, It seems the voice of God.

NATIVE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845
NATIVE \I r ETI \G. ON Tuesday last, a considerable number of mao- ries assembled 11 the Royal Hotel, in conse- quence of a notice inviting them to meet, for the purpose of taking into consideration warlike transactions cf John Hcki ; and also for the pnrpose of expressing their opinions as ! to the Protectorate. About one o'clock. Taniw&lt;t, the chief of Waihau, arrived with his followerr, and was placed in t!ie chair. The old warrior's 1 hetrd being profusely decorated with feathers, and his remarkable couutenat.eeclosely t; tooed, gave him rather an imposing appearance as a chairman. This meeting originated in the dissa- tisfaction of Paura, elref of the Nsra te Paoa, a mau who sold his land at the Bmrier to Mr. William Abercrombie, and had arrived with his people in Auckland for the purpose «>f »eceiviui» the payment; but the Governor not having waved the right of pre-emption, it created a good deal of discussion between Mr Abercrombie and the naives, they being desi...

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 1845. CAPTAIN STURT'S EXPEDITION TO EXPLORE THE INTERIOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845
ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 1845. &nbsp; CAPTAIN STURT'S EXPEDITION TO EXPLORE THE INTERIOR. WE have very great pleasure in being able to report farther intelligence from Capt. Sturt. A letter from Captain Sturt, conveyed by natives, has recently been received by Mrs Sturt. We have not seen it, but E. Sturt, Esq., the Captain's brother, has kindly communicated to us its con- tents. The letter is dated ten days after Captain Sturt's last despatch, dated October 16th (a copy of which appeared in the Gazette of November 7th, and in this paper of the subsequent day), and gives an account of his examination of the country to the north of the position of Mr Poole, at the time the latter " -had a view of distant ranges to the north and north-west," and saw what appeared to be water, extending from south-west to west to 13° &nbsp; east of north. That position was, as nearly as could be ascertained, long. E. 141 ° 46', lat. S. 32° 4'. Captain Sturt states that he followed up ...
PORTLIND BAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845
PORTLAND BAY. THE Portland Gazttte recently published an article, comparing that part of New South Wales with South Australia. This comparison appears to us to afford a striking example of the fable called " the Frog and the Ox," in which the former, in order to inspire its offspring with respect, puffed itself to such an extent that it burst. Our contemporary is making such streuous attempts to puff, that he is evidently in imminent danger of incurring a similar fate, He publishes an account of exports and im- &nbsp; ports from and into the port of Portland, which, we may observe in passing, must be partly on account of South Australian settlers in that neighbourhood; but as the exports and imports to and from other parts of New South Wales are never given in the Custom-house returns for any part of Port Phillip district, the balance of trade in any part of it cannot be ascertained. Yet our contemporary has the folly and hardi- hood to say, that there is " an accumulating c...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 1 April 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. &nbsp; WE copy a few paragraphs from the Hobarton &nbsp; &nbsp; Advertiser of the 18th of March. They ex- hibit the state of the convict colony in a frightful light : - &nbsp; ROBBERY. - On Saturday last a hut near Mr Hull's, at Tolosa, was robbed by a party of men from the Glenorchy road gang. At first it was feared that murder had been committed - one of the inhabitants of the hut having rushed down to the mill and declared that his mate had been robbed and murdered by seven men ; three of whom were armed. Mr. Frederick Hull imme- diately went to his assistance, but found that fright had magnified the danger, as well as the injury, the man having been only knocked down &nbsp; by a blow, which made him for a time insensi- ble, and but one of the ruffians armed. The police were speedily in putsuit, but we have not heard whether they were successful in their at- tempts at capture. The police, notwithstanding the enormous expe...

THE EMIGRATION FUND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845
THE EMIGRATION FUND. FROM the Parliamentary papers, we discover that a discussion had arisen between the Colo- nisation Commissioners and the South Australian Company. lt may be remembered that, by instructions from the South Australian Commissioners, the Resident Commissioner here was directed to lodge the proceeds of the land fund with the South Australian Company. A sum, amounting to about £8000 to £9000 was thus accumulated in the hands of their Bank in Adelaide, of which, on the division of the concerns into two com- panies, the Bauk remained custodier. About two years ago, his Excellency Governor Grey demanded payment of the amount, with interest ; but the Manager declined to pay it, unless the authority of the South Australian Commissioners was exhibited, it having been a special stipula iation that the money was to be paid in London. The correspondence, of which the subjoined is the principal portion, afterwards took place. We have omitted some formal letters caused by the c...

MUSING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 April 1845
MUSING ASSOCIATION. BY an advertisement in another column, it wilt be observed that aa association for the purpose of purchasing mineral lands, and for Carrying on mining operations, is about to be formed in Adelaide. We have long expected that an association of this nature would, sooner or later, be estab- lished here ; and we confess we shall sincerely rejoice to see it in active operation. Considering that there are in the colony a vast number of people possessed of moderate capí til, who are anxious to be interested in mines, but who are notable to contend against the small number of rich in the purchase of them, it is the most natu- ral thing in the world that the many should unite for the attainment of that which, singly, they could not hope for. The two great points in framing the constitu - tiou of an association like the present, are to save the shareholders from responsibility, and to se- cure the services of capable and responsible di- rectors. From information we have re...
