THE LAND SALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845
THE LAND SALES. SATURDAY, at eleven o'clock, having been the time fixed for selling by auction the crowu lands said to contain mineials, as announced in the Government Gazette, the.sale accordingly took place. The Mining Association having caused a mi nute examination of the various sections to be made, resolved to endeavour to secure, if possi ble, that adjoining Capt« Bagot's mine-the re ports respecting the others not being particularly j favorable. It being well understood that Capt. Bagot was equally determined to have the sec tion, a keen comest for the prize was generally anticipated. A t eleven o'clock the Treasury was crowded by more than one hundred persons, including a large proportion of the capitalists of the pro vince. The Treasurer, Mr Macdonald, soon after wards appeared, and the important business of the day conimeueed. The first section offered was that adjoining the Kapunda mine, comprising oue hundred acres of land, which was put up at the upset price of £100. Me...
The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 1845. SALE OF CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845
ADÉLAÏDE : TUESPAT, ARLU. 22, ÎS45. SALE OF CROWN LANDS. IN another column, we have given a detail of the late sale by auction of portions of land in this colony. It appears that one of these portions of land, consisting of one hundred acres of land, which was known to contain valuable lodes of copper, pro duced no less than £2,201, the purchaser being a gentleman who has already engaged to a large ex tent in mining- in the province, and who was pre pared, we believe, to go to double the extent ra ther than lose the land. In point of fact, both he and the committee of the Mining Association know well that the intrinsic value of this hundred acres of land is nearer £100,000 than £2,000. The want of means, and the knowledge that there are abundance of more lands of equal value in the province for sale, alone prevented a much higher price being given. Everything that has occurred proves the value and importance of an Association such as that , which has been formed, and we therefore th...

EXTRACTS FROM AMERICAN PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845
j EXTRACTS FROM AMERICAN PAPERS. Viii/UNoos.-The hired bravoes of Italy are scarcely more daring and desperate than the night marauders in some of the Western cities. In Cincinnati and St. Louis, especially, robbers and assassins seem to be pur suing their avocation in utter contempt of the law. On the 30th ult., Mr C. H. Rigdon, scalemaker, of Seventh street, Cincinnati, received a letter just at dark, which he immediately opened, displaying, unthinkingly, a number j of bills io the crowd. He then started for his shop, and j when at the corner of Seventh and Walnut, a man came ap and rudely assaulted him. Mr Rigdon knocked the I fellow down, and passed up to his shop. After looking to things he started for his dwelling, and when he ar rived at the corner of Seventh and Vine-streets, he was again attacked by the same villain, who stabbed at him j with a bowie knife, aiming the blow at his heart. For ; tunately the point of the knife^truck on his pocketbook, j catting a hole in his w...

THE FRENCH PRESS ON REPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845
THE FRENCH PRESS ON REPEAL. &lt; SEVERAL of ilie Paris journals of Saturday have articles on Ireland and Mr O'Connell, for more than one circumstance has occurred to direct the attention of the French public to the subject. Tiie letter of M. Davergier de Hau lanue, in the Constitutionnel, was of itself suf ficient, considering the influence possessed by him as a political writer, to induce the French press to notice il ; but almost simultaneously« has appeared another article on Ireland, from the |.eu of a geut'emau who has, perhaps, ob tained more ce'ebrity for remarks aud observa tions upon i ie -aud thau any foreigner who bas M ritte« uyouit. This gentleman is M. Gustave de lieaiKiiom, a member of the Chamber of Deputies, like M. Oavergier. M. de Beaumont's work on Ireland is as well, perhaps even helter, known in England and Ireland than it is ia Frauce. He has just pub lished a new edition of it, with a preface on the state of Ireland iu 1844. lu addition to the pub'¡ca...
LONDON POLICE. Wednesday, Dec. 11. FINAL EXAMINATION OF WILLIAM BURGESS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845
LONDON PO LICE. Wednesday, Dec. 11. &nbsp; FINAL EXAMINATION OF WILLIAM BURGESS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Burgess was brought up for final examination before the Lord Mayor. The public curiosity seemed to have increased, if we were to judge from the crowds assembled in all the avenues to the justice-room, and in the justice-roem itself. The same excellent arrangements, which pre vented confusion or embarrassment upon the former examinations, were adopted on this oc casion with equally beneficial effects. The re porters for the newspapers were accommodated with all the necessary facilities, and tbe whole of the proceedings were conducted without any interruption whatever. Mr Charles Freshfield and Mr Weir, of the house of Freshfield and Co.* Solicitors to the Bank of England, attended for the prosecution.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845
AMERICA. I WE have pleasure in copying in our subsequent «olumns, from the United States Jouruals iu our «possession, a number of extracts, which will (give our readers an idea, faint though it may be, of life in that immense republic. We proceed to give a few remarks, illustrative of other mat ters of prominent interest. The grand political question in the United States, almost always, is the election of the President, ree peeling which so much interest is felt, that the people have no sooner elected one to serve four years, than they proceed to canvass -and agitate for a successor. The principal topics on which the parties in the United States j at present differ are these. The democratic party are in favor of the annexation of T«xas,thereduc tion of the tariff, and the occupation of Oregon We extract a paragraph from the New York w fleraldt as a spscimeu of the tone of anticipa tion adopted in the United states on these points. It does not present a very flattering prospect for E...

MEDITATIONS ON MK BARRY'S KEW HOUSE OF PARLIA MENT. (Written on board the .* Lily," steam-boat.) The wharf-bell tolls the knell or starting steam, The jostling crowd pours quickly o'er the pier ; The ladies forward rush with timid scream, And leave the stern to Punch and bottled beer. Now fades each public building from the sight. As on her course the Lily steamer holds, Till new St. Stepbens rea ts its moderate height, j j VVhich many a tier of scaffolding enfolds. Beneath those beams-yet those unfinished towers, At present echoing wuk the workmen's clank ; Upon their leg«, perchance, for weary hours, Shall Britain's future Senators harangue. Full many a Whig of coldest heart serene, Shall broach his philosophic-nonsense -there ; Full many a Tory, born abu» to Screen, Shall waste his humbug on the miduight air. Some future Duncombe, there, with dauntless breast. The tyrant of his diocese shall ta it ; Some mate, good-humored Brougham contented rest Some Sibthorp, guiltless of his c...

TO THX SOROR OF THE SOUTH AUfTBALIAK. Adelaide, April 24, 1845. SâR-Your paper having been the first to give anything like a sporting account of the races here, I beg, through its medium, to call the attention of the subscribers to the Adelaide Races to, what 1 consider, the very discredit able winding up of the affair. Whether the dispute respecting the winner's age was frivolous or not, Î. have nothing to du. I merely go to facts. The payment of the stakes even in part is, I conceive, sufficient proof that the stewards are at length satisfied as to the dis puted point. It must be remembered that the «« Town Plate" and "Ladies' Cup"are our leading races, aud, all dispute being ended, lo, and behold ! there are not funds sufficient to pay the amount supposed to be the value of these stakes. This certainly appears strange, as it was understood the subscriptions were fully adequate to pay ALL liabilities. The stakes for all thé other races were paid in full, and it certainly is a hard...

CATTLE MARKET. VXDHKIDAT, APRIL 23, 1845. WE had this morning our usual supply of butchers' meat, working steers, aod a few dairy cows. Of the oxen for consumption I cannot speak in the way of commendation, which must be at tributed to the season rather than to othtr causes : but, with what I have already ad vanced, I must congratulate our stockholders on this decided addition to our late prices.

Mri Day, whoie ** unruly member" has latterly led to her frequent appearance at this court, was j summoned to answer the complaint of a Mrs Allen, for an assault. , It appeared that, on this occasion, the defend ant did not confine her performances to the vocal line, but, being under the influence of the "rosy god," or, as a witness described her, " being more like a devil than a lion," gave the com plainant a most unpleasant proof of her science The evidence being conclusive, the Magis trate fined the defendant £4 for the assault, and £1 for costs, and warned her that, should she again pay him, a visit, he should be compelled to confine her belligerent inclinations by binding ber to keep the peace. He was also cruel enough to hint that she might find difficulty in procuring sureties, notwithstanding her previous assertion that " all Hindley-street would go bail for her any day."
