In the meantime,the inhabitants of Auckland had thrown up entrenchments to protect their town, and-had made it perfectly secure. The Sydney Government had likewise sent severa I hundred soldiers to tl.e colony, 200 of whom, in a fi iga<e supposed to be the North Star, had arrived at Auckland on the morning of 23rd j March, the date of the latest intelligence, ami a vessel wi...

CONFLICT WITH THE NATIVES AT KORORARIKA, BAY OF ISLANDS, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 29 April 1845

CONFLICT WITH THE NATIVES AT KOROIIA RIKA, BAY OF ISLANDS, NEW ZEALAND. WE give first ide official despatches of the offi cers engaged in the above conflict, and, in addi tion io these, a full narrative of the whole proceedings, extracted from the Australian, of April 8ih : - Rossel».

Haxard, 5. p.m. Sir-I have the honor to inform your Excellency that, about four o'clock thia morning, the town was attacked on all sides hy a party of about two thousand1 armed natives. The small-armed roan and marines of H.M.S. Hazard,, under the command of Capt. Robertson (who, I am sorry to say, is dangerously wounded), endeavoured to drive them back ; but, in consequence of the blockhouse being surprised and taken, he was obliged to retire into the stockade in the town. Soon afterwards a simultaneous attack was made, and a heavy fire was maintained on both sides for three hours, when the assailants were repulsed, and retired to the hills, where they remained.

EXTRACTS FROM AMERICAN PAPERS. PATHETIC REVELATION FROM THE PRISON-HOUSE. [FROM THE C[?]ROTVILLE CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 29 April 1845

EXTRACTS FROM AMERICAN PAPERS.   PATHETIC REVELATION FROM THB PRISON-HOUSE. [FROM THE CABOTVILLE CHRONICLE.]   Reader, what is more unpleasant than a dun, and what   creates more sensitive conflicting thoughts in the person that is dunned ? But as unpleasant and as conflicting as it is, it becomes, sometimes, unavoidale. We must be plain-hearted, and tell you candidly that it is impossible to print a newspaper without money ; our list of sub- scribers is small, numbering only three or four hundred, and that number, if they paid, would afford a scanty compensation to the publishers. Reckon it for your selves — at 1 d 50 c per year for 350 subscribers, which is the highest number, amounts to 525 d ; the cost of the paper for that number is 175 d, help 300 d, rent 65 d, office expenses 100 d. Add to 525 d 309 d for adver- tising, the whole amount 825 d. How much is there left to the publishers, after paying their board, to compensate them for thei...

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1845 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1845 Nathaniel Prtttejohn was fined £5 and costs., for illegally impounding cattle, the property of Mr. Debney, of the Recd Beds. THUK6DAY, MAI I, 1845. Isabella Jin der son, better known as " Scotch j Bella/' charged for the no-one-knows-how manyeth-time with being drunk and disorderly, was committed to gaol for fourteen days, and ordered to be kept lo hard labor. Mr. W. J. Sayers appeared to answer a charge I of assault brought against him by a Mrs. Ro j berts, of Gillos-street. The complainant, who appeared to be a somewhat troublesome cus I tomer, told a most improbable taie of her going I to Mr. Sayers's, for the purpose of getting "a glass" and that on gaining the top-step, without j her saying a word, Sayers struck her a violent 1 blow on the chest, by which she was felled and ! her arm broken. A witness, who assisted to pick up the com ! plainant, swore that she had entered the house j and would not positively swear as to Say...

GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845

j GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. WE have great pleasure in directing attention ta the announcement of a mail for Strathalbyn. We sincerely trust that this is the barbinger of a near system of mail communication, in some degree I commensurate with the «vants of the colony. This, indeed, we may confidently state, for it would be palpable injustice to give a mail to Strathalbyn district, and refuse one to the important and popu lous districts to the north of Gawler Town. The settlers there should now come forward and make arrangements similar to those made by the eastern settlers, in which case, we have not the slightest doubt of a successful result. An error occurred in the abstract of receipts and expenditure, making the expenditure £142 more than it ought to be ; this is now rectified. Notice is given of the usual Levee on thc Queen's birthday. The long-expected announcement is made of the meeting of the Legislative Council. The day appointed is the 23rd June next.

Again thou smtlest, sweet : See the small finger» close in eager grasp. While the bricht flashing deepens on thy brow, Aa though thoa would'st some fairy gift » nelasp. Wake not, my child !

JOINT STOCK COMPANIES AND MINING. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845

JOINT STOCK COMPANIES AND MINING. I [COMMUNICATED.] I IN this colony, where so many of the laboring^class have become si.all capitalists, and have, in conse quence, their attention invited to projects, such as they never even remotely contemplated in the old country, a few elementary remarks on joint stock companies and mining associations may not be un acceptable. When an enterprise involves such expenditure as cannot be undertaken by one individual it becomes expedient that an association should be formed, which, by combining the energies of many, and diminishing individual liability, may remove the obstructions that stand in the way of the under taking. In every joint stock company, in order to ensure success, it is requisite that the undertaking should admit of being carried on according to a regular systematic plan. The reason is obvious. The business of every company must be conducted through agents. Where these cannot be specially directed, but must be allowed a large discret...

THE MULBERRY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845

THE MULBERRY. ¡ A growing desire prevailing in the colony for j the introduction of the mulberry, «ts a first step ! towards the culture of silk (which is a source of such vast wealth to England, to France, and even io Ireland), we lay before our readers some information respecting it. The facility of its propagation and culture, the fi'ness of our soil and climate, its umbrageous character, and the excellence of tts fruit.independent of more pros pective advantage, recommend its immediate introduction. The morns (Greek morea) derives its name from the Celtic mor t, which signifies black (probably from the color of its fruit). It belongs to the Motiocia Peutandria class, and order of Linnaeus,and includes five varieties-M. Nigra, M. Alba, M. Tatarica, M. Rubra, and M. Ttnetoria. Of these, the first is the only one which is valuable as a fruit-tree. " It is naturally a stronger tree than the M. Alba, the fruit is of a dark blackish red, and of au agreeable aromatic and acid flavor. I...
