MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 April 1845
MELBOURNE. &nbsp; The cattle market has been badly supplied for some time ; fat bullocks were from 7s to 8s per 100lbs. A mixed lot realised the following prices : - Cows with calves, 50s to 70s ; springers 40s each ; weaners 15s each ; 808 head of cattle with station given in, lately belonging to Mr Waite, realised 16s per head. Working bullocks are fetching from &nbsp; 7 to 8 guineas per pair in some instances, with chains, bows, and yokes given in ; hack horses were sold at from 14 to 18 guineas : the Herald of the 20th reports the sheep advertised for sale by Messrs Brodie & Cruikshank on the previous Monday did not take place, the same having been sold by the proprietor, some days previous, by private con tract.

Local News [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 April 1845
THE " GAZETTE EXTRAORDINARY." - THE " REGISTER." - RUMOURS. - We have hitherto inadvertently omitted to mention the extraordinary production first above men tioned, it was published on the 1st of April, as an epitome of all the foolery of the by-gone year, and very full of folly it was accordingly. Many things it has foolishly published, and many things it has foolishly omitted ; but of all the follies we cannot conceive any thing grosser than the omission of comment on the way in which parties, full, doubtless, of wicked willany, have &nbsp; systematically and perseveringly hoaxed our most un &nbsp; happy contemporary the Register. It required some little cleverness to hoax a brother of the quill the other day, at Port Phillip, about the arrival of the Wallace, with emigrants, the death of Louis Philippe, and other great events ; but with our long-eared Register there is no difficulty whatsoever. From the appointment of a new Governor, or 20 burials a week in the ce...
THE LATE BANK ROBBERY BY BURGESS AND ELDER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 11 April 1845
THE LATE BANK ROBBERY BY BURGESS AND &nbsp; &nbsp; ELDER. The bank robbery noticed below was effected by a fraudulent transfer of stock, in the name of &nbsp; a Mr Oxenford. Burgess was a clerk in the Bank of England, and Elder personated Mr Oxenford. The latter destroyed himself. Daniel Forrester recovered £7500 out of the &nbsp; £8000 :- As this is probably the largest instance on record of the successful tracing and bringing to justice of any party charged with crime, it may be considered interesting to give a short account of Johu Forrester's proceedings after his de- parture from England. It will be remembered that Burgess and Elder had left this country by the steamer Britannia, bound for Halifax and Boston. At the time these persons left England it was im- &nbsp; possible to say to which of these places they ; purposed to go. It was therefore determined that Forrester should set off for Halifax first, &nbsp; and endeavour to tra...
HORSE-RACING. [FROM THE TIMES, DEC. 14.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
HORSE-RACING. [FROM THE TIMES, DEC. 14.] THE following are extracts from the reports and minutes taken before the Select Committee of the FTotise of Lords, appointed " to inquire into the j laws respecting gaming, aud to report thereon to the House. The reports have already appeared separately, but the evidence has only just been issued. First, as regards the popularity of horse I races, the following are portions of the evidence given by Lord Strafford. It appears that his Lordship was in the command of the Manchester district in the year 1820, and that at that time the population of the district had been very much I excited. His Lordship had a large military force there to support the civil power ; and his evidence as regards the conduct of the people at the races was to this effect : ! After the riots at Manchester, a considerable I number of persons wore white hats with black ! crape on them, as a commemoration of those who had been killed and wounded the year previously, j The ...

THE CONDITION OF THE LABOURERS QÜES riON. [TIMES, DECEMBER 8.] THIS is now the question-the grand question - the vexata questio, pressiog and pushing itself, by the force of circumstances that can neither be checked, nor controlled, nor evaded, upon the notice of the public. In some of the agricul tural districts the labouring population are ia a state of semi-starvation. Ata meeting at Goat acre, in the parish of Hillinton, in Wiltshire, a few days ago, the wife of a labouring man gaye the following account of the sufferings and pri vations of herself and family:-** She stood up," says the Wiltshire Independent, "and, in language only such as a woman and a mother could use, addressed the meeting. She said the father did not know all the distress which was endured. When her husband WP s at work, her children were frequently crying for food. She had three children; one, thirteen years old, ought to earn 5d a day; another, ten years old,ought to earn 4d a day ; aud the third, eight ye...

THE CHURCH-PROCEEDINGS AT OXFORD. [OUBLIS ETENtKG HAIL, DEC. 18.] THE following notice has been issued by the vice-Chancellor in reference to the case of Mr Ward: - Wheieas it is notoriously reputed aud believed ; throughout the University, that a book entitled '* The Ideal of a Christian Church considered," ' has recently been published in Oxford by the Rev. Wm George Ward, M.A., in which book are contained the following passages, viz. : - I'. 45 (Note.) ** I know no single movement in the church, except Arianism in the fourth century, which seems to ma so wholly destitute of all clai'.Ms on our sympathy aud regard as the English Reformation.'* P. 473. " For my own part I think it would not be rigiit to conceal, indeed I am anxious openly to express, my own most firm and un doubting conviction-that were we as a church to pursue such a line of conduct as has been here sketched, ia proportion as we did so, we should he taught from above to discern and appreciate the ph:ii mai ks of D...

Correspondence. SAVINGS BANKS AND MINING. TO THe EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
SAVINGS BANKS AND MINING. TO TH« EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. THE return of the Savings Bank is generally considered to be one of the bright spots in the prospects of this province. There are people who are usually disposed to take a gloomy view of the commercial wealth of the place-who are pleased to hear of the increased de posits in the Savings Bank. They conceive they take a moral view of the matter, and rejoice that the poorer classes are more thrifty. I have no wish to spoil anybody's consolations ; but it is worth while considering what a large amount of deposits in the Savings Bank means. It is a phenomonon which is far from a sign of unmixed prosperity-the more people who invest their money at this miserably low rate of interest, the greater proof exists of a want of better investments. The supera bundance of money that enables the banks to cut down the interest to 40s. for every £100 per annum, shows that the depositors are unable to make better use of their mcney. Such...
