VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 9 May 1845

TAN DÍERIEN'S LAND. I HORRIBLE MURDER AND ROBBERY.-We have lo record another fearful result, either di rectly or indirectly, of the present abominable system of convict (no) discipline, in a murder and robbery so bold and frightful, as to have, at present, few parallels in this colony. About seven o'clock last evening, as Mr Ken let y, who resides at Kangaroo Bottom, with his wife and son, aged fourteen years, was putting up his horse in the stah'e, he was accosted by t«-*o men, who asked for employment. Mr Keltlety made some necessary enquiries, the men being strangers, and, »bile addressing one of them, the other came behind him and struck bim on the heail vt ii h a bludgeon: they then imme diately demanded his pistols, which were given to them, and, proceeding into the house, they severely beat the boy, cutting him on the bead in two or three places, and striking him ou th; legs. The poor wife implored them not to mul der her husband, when the ru (hans told her they intended to d...

AUCKLAND. j (From the Commerçant Journal.) The following is a copy pf a letter received by a gentle- man in Syd ney » from a brother who waa one of the suf- ferers at Kororarika, and must give a pretty good idea of the dreadful state in which they were during the attack : Auckland, Saturday Night, March 23.

HOBART TOWN MARKETS.—APRIL 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

HOBART TOWN MARKETS.-APB«. 17 The improvement which has taken place in oar mar- kets, while those of all the adjoining colonies are softer, 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 I 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. I Although inferior wheat has brought from 2s. 6d ap- j j wards, tending to keep down the average, yet the . best samples have gone so high as Ss. 8d.

TO THE IDITOR OF THB »ODTH AUSTRALIAN. SIR-Having been particularly engaged. I could not, as I intended, put you tn possession of my strictures on the various assettions made by Mr P., referred to in the second last paragraph of my former communication, which appeared in your paper of Friday last. Now, however, having some leisure, I proceed to redeem my pledge. In roy last letter I stated among other things, that Mr P. asserted (preaching from Acta 3- xxl), that the word " restituí ion" in that verse meant that all things were to he restored to their original or primeval condi- tion or state-that New Jerusalem was to be built-that an altar was to be erected-that a stream from under it was to issue, which would mid its way to the Dead Sea, and purify it-that the Dead Sea after being puri- fied would teem with fish-that trees would yield abun - dance of fruit every month, and that the fish and fruit would afford an abundant supply of provisions to the Millenarians. He also added that...

ALBION LODGE OF ODD FELLOWS. THE brothers of this lodge celebrated their first anniversary at brother Athorn's, on Thursday last.

THE FIG. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

I THE FIG. I THIS valuable, prolific, and easily cultivated tree, belougsjo the Polygamia Diaecea class, and order of Linnstus. It is supposed to have originally come from Caria, in Asia Minor, but, like the olive, is acclimatised, and iu some re- spects qaturalised, iu the Levant, and through- out the south of Europe. The nomenclature ol the fig is more involved in confusion, th sn that of any other fruit ; the same sorts being called by different names in different parts of the same country. In the Horticultural Society's Fruit Catalogue, second edition, the various kinds, with their synonyms, are partícu- la» ly enumerated. The best sorts are Green I sch ia White Ischia ¡ Yellow Ischia Lees Perpetual White Malta Large Black Naples ; White Naples Small Green I Brown Turkey. I The tree is very common in Palestine, flou- rishing in rocky, barren situations, where little else will grow. So partial is it to a stony soil, that it is by no means unusual for the wild fig to establish its...

The South Australian. ADELAIDE; TUESDAY, MAY 12, 1845, THE CORN TRADE.—IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE CAPE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

i Çfte ^otttft Australian. AiixuLiDs: Tos»DAT. MAY IS, IS4f. THE CORN TRADE.-IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE CAPE. P arv ATE intelligence has been received in town of a considerable advance in the price of corn at the Cape of Good Hope, in consequence of a partial failure in the crops. It appears that the season had been very dry, and the best agricultural districts, from which Cape Town had been usually supplied, would barely provide for their own consumption. Wheat had risen since our last advices to 8s. and 8s. 6d., and even 9s. was given for good samples ; and it is stated that these prices will in all probability be maintained for several months. Hay was selling at £8 to £9 per ton. Barley and oats were also in demand at advanced prices. Treasury bills were at par, and private bills at three per cent, discount. Shippers are advised to send white wheat, in strong three-bushel bags. lt should be remembered especially, that, at the Cape, there are no port dues or duties of any de- scripti...

THE HOP. (HUMULUS LUPLUS.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

THE HOP. (nUUDLUI IDFDLTJI.) THE hop belongs to the Diescid Pentand:ia class, and order of Linnaeus, lt derives its bo- tanical name humulus from humus, fresh mould, in which it delights; and that of lupuius (which \6 a contraction of lupus salictarius, " wo If of the willows),'' from its property of strangling and choking them (as it were), being as destructive to them as the wolf to sheep. This may ap-. pear far-fetched; but the etymology of the term is thus accounted for by botanists. The hop is indigenous to Scotland and Ire- land : it is a slender, climbing plant, frequently attaining the length of twenty feet. It is grown almost exclusively for its use in brewing. Its culture'was introduced from Flanders in the reign of Henry VIII. There are several va- rieties grown in Rent and Surrey, nuder the name of Flemish and Canterbury ; those most esteemed are the grape hop, the white vine, and the golden hop. The golden is a very improved and highly productive variety, but more subje...
