STOCK OF WHEAT. (To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845
ST. CE OF WHEAT. (To the hditor of the Launceston Examiner.) SiK-Mr Rowcroft's letter demands the serious at tention of the government and public. I hare not the means at band of verifying the data on which his calculations are founded, but assuming them to be correct, they exhibit a most fearful picture of the distress and ruin into which the agricultural body has fallen, and imply that the commercial portion of our community is nearly in the same condition, »*bile the whole colonj- has been almost within the grasp of famine. Would it be believed, sir,on any less respectable] authority, that not only *« pauper tenants,* but landowners, merchants, the *' knowing ones in Launceston,*' and the commissariat, had all been so culpably indifferent to their own and the public welfare, as to thresh the lasi wheat, sweep out their granaries, and suffer the public storehouses to be come so exhausted, that only .twenty da\-sf food (50,000 bushels) remained in the colong.

I SIR-Tn your paper of yesterday I perceive ai notice of the " Subscription Library," which j concludes thui-** The subscription is £2 2s per j annum, and would be well spent money by all who hare (he means" The latter clause is certainly a very weighty one - by all who have the means. But does it uot occur to you or the gentlemen who have the management of the institution referred to, that there may be many to whom it would be most desirable to throw open the doors of the Subscription - Library-who may not have, or who cannot afford the means ? Is it not notorious that the class who would derive most advantage from access to the library, and from whose lucrubations there the colony also would probably derive benefit, are ordina rily not much burdened with superfluous cash ? One of the wisest of the class has described them as Things unteachable in worldly ski'.l. To make no provision by which persons of education who cannot afford to pay the amount of subs...

i NEW ZEALAND. J TO TUE EDITOR OF TOE SOOTH AUSTRALIAN. Sydney, April 17, 1845. SIR-I see by your paper, the South Australian, that you take an interest in the affairs of New Zea land"; and, that you may be furnished with parti culars of what is going on there, I beg to hand yon herewith a lew of the Auctand papers, the Southern Cross and the Auckland Times. The destruction of Kororarika, at the Bay of i Islands, is an awful affair. I was there on the 26th Lian, last; the discontented chiefs had visited the j town a few days before, and did not hesitate to tell ! the inhabitants that they would soon visit the settle. ! ment again in a hostile manner, which they have done with a vengeance. The leading chief, Hone Heki, seems to aim at the total subversion of Government; and in all his attempts he has been signally successful. The flag staff he has cut down three times already, and tells them that there is no nse in erecting it again, for, as often as they do, he is determined to cut ...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845
I CHINA. WE subjoin ihe copy of a letter, which Messrs Beck, of ibis city, have just received from the eminent firm of "jardine, Matheson, & Co. It appears that the answer is very unfavorable iu re ference to all the articles upon which information was sought by Messrs Beck, and we are glad ii* being able to publish it, because it is far better that the public should know the worst at once. But we find that there is one probable export-metals which Messrs Bf ck omitted, and respecting whick they intend now to make enquiry. A s it is known that the Chinese import immense quantities op copper, iron, lead, and quicksilver,* we have san guine hopes that these may yet become staple articles of trade, between this colony and wthe» five pons." Whatever may be the result, there can he bofe one opinion as to the enterprising «pint of Messrs Beck, who have been foremost in finding out and opeuing up new markets for our colonial produce.

The South Australian. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1845. THE CORN TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 2 May 1845
Che iwH^&»gtraItanT ADKLAIDR: FRIDAY. MAY 2, 1S45. THE CORN TRADE. WE beg to direct the attention of all who feel an interest in the above trade to several letters and editorial paragraphs which we have copied else where from the Van Diemen's Land newspapers, in reference to a very large deficiency of corn in that island for the supply of its inhabitants during the present year.- We regard the information thus de rived as ihe most important which has been re-| ceived in the colony for years, as it proves that our agriculturists may now rely with some degree of confidence on getting a partial remuneration for a period of anxiety, privation, and unrequited labor. If the facts turn out as represen ted by the several correspondents of the Launceston Examiner, il seems certain that the price of wheat must very speedily rise in Van Diemen's Land, and as a necessary consequence, in Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland : so that South Australia may speedily be in the position of Egypt of...
