To prevent misapprehension on the part of Hie mercantile community, more particularly in the neighbouring1 colonies, vre beg to state that the Price Current published in this paper is cor lected weekly. This statement is rendeted necessary by the circumstance that the price current in a contemporary has been stereotyped for months. "THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER." This journal has been purchased by Mr Johu Stephens, proprietor of the Adelaide Observer. We believe the new proprietor has not deter- mined what course to pursue in reference to the two journals» From what we hear, the publie would not be sorry to see a consolidation, lt has been pretty well proved, at alt events, that three are too many.

NEW ZEALAND. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
NEW ZEALAND. To the Editors of ike Sydney Morning Herald. GENTLEMEN-I can say with safet}', llmtlwo hun- dred men are most anxious to le^ave Nelson, New Zealand, but have not the means ; and many would come here from the other settlements also. As no immigrants can be expected from England for some time, why do the landholders and master tradesmen not avail themselves of this cheap supply ? £ô a head would bring them up, and I know that they would gladly engage to repay this sum, to be re- moved from a country to which they have Oeen en- ticed. Do set up a subscription. 1 am, gentlemen, Yours, &c, PHILA.NTHHOPY. '
THE HOUR-GLASS. (From, the Christian Mother's Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
THE HOUR-GLASS. BT MRS. MILNES. (From, the Christian Mother's Magazine.) Mark the rolden grains that pass Brightly through this crystal glas», Measuring, by their ceaseless fall, Heaven's most precious gift to all. I'auseless, rill the sand be done, See the ni lent eurrent run. Till iu inward treasure shed, When another hour it fled : Its task performed, its travail past. Like mo. tal man it rests at la*i. Yet, let some hand iuvert its frame And all its powers return the same For all the golden grains remain To work their little hour again. But who shall tura the glass for noan, From which the golden current ran ; Celled again the precious sand Which lime has scattered with hi« haud ; Bring back life's s'ream with vila: power And bid it run ANOTHER HOUR ? A thousand year« of toil wene-vain To gather up une single grain !
Poetry. WOMAN'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
33 oe tr g._ WOMAN'S LOVE. There's a light ia the glance of woman's eye, When with lovo its lustre teems, That thrills to the. heart, till its feelings vie With the poet'n raptured dreams : There's a bliss in the birth of woman's sigh, When affection bids it live, Which awakens such gash ofentrancing joy As no other source caa give : Oh, the heart that is steeled to fond woman's love, Hath its like in the falcon when caged with the dove ! There's a buoyant strength in woman's love, | Which change cam ne'er repress ; And a constancy that soars above &lt; The chill of false caress : j Woman, dear woman ! vigil keeps By the midnight couch of pain Her eye ne'er droops, her love nejer sleeps, She deigns not to complain ; For woman's love is the only trait That hath 'scaped the curse of oar fallen state. Affectionate woman-daring as true! - Hath severed the gyves of the brave ; And, reckless of peril, by love nerved anew. Hath rescued the doomed to the grave. The wrestling waves o...

Ladies and gentlemen-It would ill befit your ge- nerous conduct and my obligations, were I to ne gleet to return }rou my warmest acknowledgments for the kind, prompt, and liberal manner in which ye have come forward to meet the printer's bill, which, including pressing and folding, amounts to upwards of thirty-five pounds - about double the sum I at first expected, and which, only for your benevolence, would have thrown me into serious difficulties. It is but right that ye should know that an at- tempt was made by a third parly to sell the work. Three men were sent out, one after another, on three separate days, during which they sold one copy of the first part, bringing home eight pence ! - for which service I had to pay one shilling and sixpence ! But, when ye discovered the character ...
HOBART TOWN MARKETS.—APRIL 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
HOBART TOWN MARKETS.-APHIL 17. The improvement which has taken place in our mar- kets, while those of all the adjoining colonies are 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 waa expected, ali circumstances considered, ave rag- ing 2s. 2d. per bushel, has tended to support prices. Although inferior wheat has brought from 2s. Cd up- wards, tending to keep down the average, yet the . best samples have gone so high as. 3s. 8d. Halting 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.

AGRICULTURE.—TRADE AND SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
AGRICULTURE.-i-TRADE AND SHIPPING. THR news from the Cape of Good Hope, whicl proves that in that colony a most excellent mar ket for probably .the whole of .our surplus corr ^xists-the state of matters in Van Diemen*! 4«|4and, which renders it far from improbable tha a very great demand maurise there for our pro- duce-and the almost certainty that there wi! be always io Britain a sure remunerar! /e marke for the grain of this colony-are facts upon whicl it is the duty of every settler aad citizen dteplj and seriously to. reflect. The first important deduction to be drawi from them is, that the farmers should on no ac count lessen, but should greatly increase, theil cultivation. Some may be seized with the mani; of mining, and some may propose to abandot the plough for the depasturing of stock, but, wt believe that, generally speaking, they would bi wrong, individually, and, we are very certain that it would be a fatal day for South Australis if she should cease to possess a large b...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
! ENGLISH EXTRACTS. ! WE learn by the present mail, from a private corres- pondent m Dublin, that Mohan Lall* was there about the beginaing of December. After a sojourn iff Scot- land, where he hud been lionised by Sir John M'Neill, and welcomed by the venerable father ot Sir Alexander Burnes, the ex-tnoonsb.ee directed his course to Dublin. Various letters from friends ia London and Edinburgh introduced him to tba notice of the haute noblesse and gentry af the Irish capital. With th* praiseworthy zeal of an enquiring mind, he went there to expand his idea« and to judge for himself of the weal aad the woes of the Emerald Isl«. Nothing could be more laudabla than this searching spirit on the part of thia intelligent spe- cimen of "Young India ;" but the enterprising traveller gathered more from his researches than was «var dreamt of in his profound philosophy-he gained a lois-ke won a heart and irretrievably lost his own ! Our correspondent informs us, on the very best au- thority, t...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845

We know one case whe^e a party has an order for £200 worth to be sent to Launceston, and he bas not been able to send any by the vessel which it was in- tended should take it. AUSTRALIAN COMMERCE. -The va^ie of imports for last year was only £931,260, and the exports were £1,128,114, so th.it the balance of trade in our favour was nearly £200,000. The quantity of tallow exported was 2.830 tons, worth in the colony at least £80,000. These facts are taken from a clever statistical chart published by Mr Colman, of George-street, Sydney, which is well worthy of notice.

THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH NAVIES. [FROM THE QUOTIDIENNE.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845
THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH NAVIES. *?'?*. j [FROM TH« QUOTIDIENNE/] WE have already shown that the naval forces of France are, in 1844, very much fallen off from what they were fifty years ago. Louis XVÍ., it is true, did -not go to Windsor; he would have spurned the idea of uniting two rival nations by the puerile knot ot a garter; but he forced the Bri- tannic plenipotentiaries to come to Paris to sigu an act of renunciation of the finest jewel in the crown of George HI., viz., an entire continent. The French fleet, on the first of October, 1792, reckoned eighty six ships of the line-of which thirty-nine belonged to Brest, ten to L'Orient, thir- teen to Rocheforde, and twenty-four to Toulon. Three of these were of 120 guns; five of 110; ten of 80 ; sixty-seven of 74 ; and one of 64 guns. War broke out. The imperious tyranny of the commissioners of the convention, the timid hesi- tations of some of the admirait?, the ill-cooceived and unconnected instructions sent from Paris by men who...
