CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS, ^ ON 25th March last, we expressed our opinion j on the subject of capital punishments, and en deavoured to show the impropriety and the dan ger of pardoning either of the condemned felons, then ic gaol, or of granting the prayer of a few persons who propose to abolish capita! punish ments. " The few who addressed his Excellency " have, after more than a fortnight's consideration, j attempted an answer. They bad made a flourish of trumpets previously in rather an impertinent s'yle, and we certainly expected something, but we are compelled to say, that it is a, something worse than a case of the mountain in labor. In answer to our statement that the practice of capital punishments was sanctioned by divine | revelation, " the few" conduct us " to the Ara- , bian Government and practice, it being willi this j people the Israelites with Moses, then Lawgiver. 1 sojourned for forty years." The only meaning -\ we can make of this is, that Moses and tile » Israelites we...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. WB note the communication of S. We could not have believed that such nonsense as that of P. could have gone down with the South Australian public. We are almoBt afraid that we shall have a repetition in this pro vince of the folly of the Hormonites. We think it a duty, in the circumstances, to go to hear this "maniac," and shall probably have an account of him in onr pub lication next week.

SEDUCTION OF THE THREE PER CENTS. (From the Observer City Article.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
SEDUCTION OF THE THREE FER CENTS. (From the Observer City Article.) A few months since it was noticed, under this head, that providing the political horizon remained unclouded, and the money market free from any thing like disturbment, the Chancellor of the Ex chequer would not hesitate to propound to Parlia ment in the ensuing session a measure for the pur pose of reducing the interest on the three per cents, reduced annuities. An evening contemporary, the Globe, on Saturday, had a paragraph to a full ex tent confirmatory of such being the intention of Mr Goulburn. The amount of stock to be dealt with on the present occasion, should the Govern ment resolve upon so bold a measure, is not less than £125,359,000. The total three per cent, debt of the United Kingdom, but which it is not likely would be at all touched at once, is £515,150,000, namely-debt due to the South Sea Company £3,662,784. Old South Sea annuities £3,497,870; ditto new, £2,460,830; ditto of 1751, £523,100 ; debt du...

NEW SOURCES OF COMMERCIAL WEALTH IN OUR FOREIGN AND COLONIAL POSSESSIONS. [JOURNAL OF COMMERCE, NOV. 23.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
NEW SOURCES OF COMMERCIAL WEALTH IN I OUR FOREIGN AND COLONIAL POSSESSIONS. [JOURNAL OF COMMBRGE, NOV. 23.] EVERY day seems to develop, more and more, the boundless resources of ¿he British Empire ; every day inak^s us acquainted with some new discovery in our dominion? beyond theseas, cal culated to relieve the country from any depend ence upon tts jealous neighbour?. If there is a country in the world which might adopt com mercial isolation, Great Britain is that country ; hence the folly of those fears so frequently ex pressed, of our trade being ruined by foreign ta riffs and continental rivalry. Great Britain is, and must be, the centre round which the com | mercial world revolves ; and it was justly ob served by Mr Chayman, an extensive merchant of Liverpool, in his evidence before the Com mittee on Shipping, that " If England is in a state of depression it acts upon the whole world. " We might defy the united powers of the continent to destroy the trade of England, or permane...
THE MINING ASSOCIATION.—MINES, MINING, AND SMELTING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
THE MINING ASSOCIATION.-MINES, MINING, AND SMELTING. WF. really think the projectors of any new scheme should endeavour to retain our contem porary the Register "on the other side/' for peo ple seem constantly inclined to do the opposite of what he recommends. He commenced very .well in reference to the new mining association. He opposed it, and the consequence was, ac cording to his owa statement in Saturday's j number, that " 500 shares have been taken, and j 500 more, it is calculated, will be subscribed for between this and the 16th inst." He says he dreaded that the parties thus combining would raise unnecessarily the price of mineral lands I and therefore attempted his little all to injure or .crush the association. He now finds that that is not the case, and admits his error. This is well, but, at the same time, he condemns him self, for it is held to be an evidence of malignity when a man says injurious things upon supposi tion. Our contemporary has, according to es tablishe...
[PERTH INQUIRER, FEB. 19.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
[PERTH INQCIBER, FEB. 19.] I A meeting of the clergymen of this co'ony took p'ace on Wednesday last, in the vestry-room of St. George's Church, j Perth, when several matters connected with the church i establishment in this colony were considered. The principal I i point discussed vas the measure to which we alluded a fort night back as being in contemplation, the talked-of appoint ment, namely, of an Archdeacon to reside in Adelaide, but to have authority also over the clergy of this colony. Wc believe that the meeting came to the unanimous opinion that such a measure would not at all supply the want that had been felt by our elerey, and that it was agreed upon to j represent the inconvenience of it to the Bishop of the diocese, and through him to the Lord Bishop of London. I We believe also tbat his Excellency the Governor has been informed of the wishes and opinions of our clergy in this respect, and we cone!ade that he will feel it bis doty to I communicate them to the Secretary...

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 1845. SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 1845. SWAN RIVER. BY the Falco we have received Swan River papers to 5th March. The most important circumstance, one which unfortunately is but too common on the coasts of that colony, is the wreck of two vessels. We copy the full account of the disaster below. &nbsp; Our contemporaries were making strenuous ef- &nbsp; forts to persuade themselves and their readers that &nbsp; Western Australia is a much better place than South Australia. That these arguments are not overwhelmingly convincing may be guessed from the fact that, in the very last publication, no less than six persons give notice that they intend to leave the colony by the first opportunity. Some of the settlers had discovered and intended to ship what they supposed to be the sandal wood of commerce. A Mr. Singleton had discovered an excellent country, capable of depasturing 18,000 head of stock. The branch of the Bank of Australasia, the chief b...
Local News. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
THE Mining Association is proceeding swim mingly. Yesterday the first deposits were paid to the amount of several hundred pounds. To- morrow is the last day for selling shares to peo &nbsp; ple in town, and one hundred shares only have been reserved till Friday for parties in the country. &nbsp; SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. - Our readers will perceive by an advertisement in another column that the Spartan is laid on for London. In Hardy's list her date of sailing is named as 20th December. It is possible that she may have been detained a month beyond that time, in which case, even, she is nearly due. Messrs Wheeler & Co. had determined also to lay on a vessel, but had not chartered one at the last date. THE CATTLE COMPANY'S ESTATE. - This fine estate, extending to 1079 acres, at Mount Barker, was sold by Mr. J. B. Neales on Saturday for the sum of £695 cash. Considering the very low prices for agricultural produce at present, the abundance of good government land t...
AMERICAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 15 April 1845
AMERICAN NEWS. &nbsp; BY the kindness of J. Newman, Esq., agent for the American brig Falco, just arrived from Boston, via Swan River, and King George's Sound, we have been put in possesion of United States jour nals, of dates from the 5th to the 16th Nov.,1844. The American journals are full of Mr. Polk's election as President. The Clay papers are fu rious - the Polk papers are in a state of great exul tation. Mr. Polk has only recently been heard of, and &nbsp; is elected more as the representative of principles than for services performed to the States. His principles are democratic, and we observe that the London Times, whose sources of information are &nbsp; usually sure, states that he is pledged to the an nexation of Texas, to a foreign war, to a repudia tion doctrine, and a relaxation, at the instance of &nbsp; the slave states, of the commercial tariff. It is possible that these are partly the statements &nbsp; of the Whig press of Am...

RAILROAD BETWEEN SUEZ AND CAIRO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 April 1845
RAILROAD BETWEEN SUEZ AND CAIRO. THIS idea of a ship-canal across the Isthmus of Suez was -entertained long before railways were known, and would no doubt beof vast advantage to the commerce of Europe'with the East Indies, and now wkb. China-more especially, we think, to England, whose eastern possessions are much more-extensive than thoseof all European states, and who possess, or have the means of posses sing, an almost illimitable mercantile marine, whether ns regards vessels of wood, or of iron .ailing ships or steam ships. The rage for rail ways has, however, extended to such a degree t that our countryman, Mr Waghorn, a gentleman ' of undoubted ability, bas recently-repudiating the project of a ship-canal in that quarter-set the scientific and speculative world in a fever of excitement, by proposing a railroad from Cairo to Suez in preference to a large canal. We are not in possession of that information in detail ikal enables us .to pronounce a definitive opinion on the polic...
RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. THURSDAY, APRIL l7, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 18 April 1845
RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. THURSDAY, APRIL l7, '845. James Blake, an overlander from Portland Bay, who was charged with stealing two bullocks, the property of Mr Henty of that place, was remanded for a month, to enable the prosecutor to appear. Mrs. Ann Linn (who rejoices in the soubriquet of Manchester Ann) was fined 30s. and costs, for breaking the windows of her landlord, Martin O'Connell. Tao latter was also fined £1 and costs, for handling the de fendant in the former case with unnecessary roughness, in putting her out of his house previous to her assault on the windows, sh« having (as a witness-proved) called Martin a " decateful ould rascal," and used "ither ont rage8us language."
