The South Australian. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, MAY 6, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
Cl)c gwttl) Australian. ADELAIDE: TOES PAY, MAT 6, 1645. BY the William, from Launceston, and Sister, from Hobarton, with fifty-two passengers, we have files of Van Diemen's Land papers to the 19th April. The matter of most moment mentioned in the papers is a dispute which had taken place be tween the Church of England Bishop of Tas mania ( Nixon) and the Roman Catholic Bishop of Hobarton (Willson). A correspondence be tween these dignitaries is published in al! the papers. Bishop Nixon in October last wrote to Bishop Willson to call his attention to sn address, designating him Bishop of Hobarton, which had been received by the latter. He proceeds as follows: May I take the liberty of asking yon whether I am correctly informed thal yon have thus assumed the title of " Bishop of Hobart Town ?" and, if this be the case, may I beg to know under what authority you lay claim to the possession of asee, established within the limits of her Majesty's dominions, by a power independent of her...

PROPAGATION OF THE MULBERRY. (MORUS NIGRA.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
PROPAGATION OF THE MULBERRY. I (HOBOS WICKA.) I AN article having appeared in our last number respecting the mulberry, we give the following particulars relative to the mode of propagating it. They are extracted from the Launceston Examinerai the 1st March, and were addressed to the editor of that respectable journal by Mr George Fry, of the Horticultural Gar den : - " Although the mulberry is a fruit so much esteemed, 1 have observed it is much neglected on this side of the island. I cannot trace any other reason, unless it is supposed difficult of propagation, therefore thought it might not be amiss to mention an easy mode of propagation which I have proved successful, in the autumn I take my cuttings from the tree with about an inch or so of old wood to them, prepare them fit for planting by a smooth cut close undera bu>l, but not shorten the top, put their ends in the ground in a dry shady part of the garden until spring, when the greater part of them will have formed callosi...
SILK AND SILK-WORMS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
SILK AND SILK-WORMS. As a fitting sequel to an article on the mul berry, which appeared in the last number of this paper, a few rc mai ks on silk and silk-worms may not be inopportune ; nor will our readers, we trust, be displeased, if, departing from the rule of strict practical utility, we enter into some interesting historical details.-Omne punc tum tulit, qui tniscuit utile dulci. The name of silk is generally considered to be derived from the Latin Sericum (in the same manner as indigo from Indtcutn), the word in dicating the place of its production. The transition from sericum to selicuni, and thence to silk, was easy and natural. The Seres (if we recollect aright) are described by Juvenal as a people beyond the Ganges, and are believed to be the same with the Chinese of later date. The earliest mention of silk is in the Proverbs of S .lomon, where the virtuous matron is re presented as being enabled, by her industry, to clothe herself in this costly article. It would appear t...

THE HUSBAND'S COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
THE HUSBAND'S COMPLAINT. I hate the name of Berlin wool, in all its colors bright Of chairs and stools in fancy-work, I hate the very ! sight : The ebawls and slippers that I've seen, the ottomans and I bags. Sooner than wear a etitch on me, I'd walk the street in rags. I've heard of wives too talkative, too musical, too quiet Of scolding, or of gaming wives, and those too fond of riot: But yet of all the errors known, which to the women fall, For ever doing fancy work, I think, exceeds them all. The other day, when I came home, no dinner was for me ; I asked my wife the reason »she answered, "one, two, three !" I told her I was hungry, and stamped upon the floor She never look'd at me, hut murmur'd, " one green more !" Of course she makes roe angry-she does not care for that But chatters, while I talk to her, " one white, and thea a black - Seven greens, and then a purple-(just hold your tongue, I my dear), You really do annoy me so, I've made a wrong Btitch ¡ here !" I And as to c...
MR. HORACE ROWCRAFT'S MIS-STATEMENT. (Cornwall Chronicle, April 19.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
MR. HORACE ROAVCROFX'S MIS'STATEMENT. (Cornwall Chronicle, April 19.) \ communication, will be found in another column, bearing the signature of Mr. Horace Rowcroft, of Woodstock, Norfolk Plains, which he furnishes "for the information of the public and the comtnu nity generally,'* but which, being mis-statement from beginning to end, is not likely to prove of much value to the public, nor to ensure himself public credit for the production. For some days prior to the publication of Mr Rowcroft's stafistics, we were privately prepared for the appearance of "a statement" from Norfolk Plains regarding the amount of wheat on hand, that, it was conjectured, .would raise the price of the article to 15s. or 20s. a bushel ; that statement may not yet have escaped from the study of the concocter, but if the pro duction of Mr. Rowcroft be the statement we were prepared to expect, the effect it can produce-if it produces any-will be the inundation of our market with foreign grain, and the cert...

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COURT. I MAT 2. ff. TT. Rollason, H. Rollason, and Wm. Hsnry Dalton, were charged with maliciously destroying and injuring some pieces of sawn wood, the pro perty of George Cole, of Thebarton. James Pearce, sawyer and splitter, was sworn and examined. The prosecutor was told that he could not ex amine the witness, that the magistrates would ask the questions, and if the magistrates omitted any question, he might put them through them. The magistrate asked the prosecutor if he in tended to give evidence in the case ? The latter said he did net. Mr Fisher then said that the information should be on oath. This, however, the magistrate over-ruled.

HOBART TOWN MARKETS.—APRIL 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
HOBART TOWN MARKETS.-APRIL 17. The improvement which has taken place in our mar kets, while those of all the adjoining colonies ere suffer ing depreciation, proves incontestably the effect which the one thousand pounds per day British expenditure, consequent upon the feeding by Britain of some twenty thousand persons, cannot but inevitably produce. The contracts, too, having been taken at a much better price than was expected, all circumstances considered, averag ing 2s. 2d. per bushel, has tended to support prices. Although inferior wheat has brought from 2s. Od. up wards, tending to keep down the average, yet the best sample» have gone so high as Ss. 8d. Malting barley and good oats ar« in request at from 3s. to 3s. 6d., and potatoes maintain 3s. Hay averages from 30s. to 45s. according to quality. All other articles as before. Upon the whola the markets certainly look up. -Murray's j tte view. I
WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 6 May 1845
WHEAT. We have seen a series of calculations made by a gentleman named Rowcroft, published in the Launceston papers. The Courier is afraid that the Review will apprehend a famine. Ou the contrary, we find Mr Rowcroft's calculations so erroneous in premises, so erroneous in conclu sions, and so erroneous in the arithmetic, that we consider the answering them would be time and space lost. The best answer will be to make known to Mr Rowcroft that there are merchants here who will be under a multitude ol compli ments to him to accept a contract for the pro due of any quantity of wheit, from ten thousand to half TI million bushels, at one half the price of the lowest estimate of his calculation. Ample security will be given to him for the fulfilment of the contract. He will, of course be required to furnish the same, and the delivery may com menee to-morrow. -Murray's Review, April 17
