RUNNING THE BLOCKADE. BY AN AMERICAN OFFICER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 16 May 1845

RUNNING THE BLOCKADE. BY AN AMERICAN OFFICER.     DURING the latter part of 1838, by reason of trou- ble existing between the two governments, a large squadron of French ships of war was stationed along the Mexican coast, for the purpose of en- forcing the blockade declared by France. In con- sequence of this measure, provisions, and such   articles as had hitherto been imported into the   Mexican seaports, became very scarce, and the high prices which were demanded offered strong inducements to our enterprising, money loving countrymen to outwit the keen-eyed Frenchmen; and, in defiance of their blockade, to supply the interdicted ports.         After a cruise of four or five months in the   Gulf, we hauled up for Tampico, to look once more on the terra firma, and to fill our water-tanks. On   coming to anch0r in the roadstead, we found the French- corve...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845

TO THB BDITO* OJ/ THB «OTJlH «.TOTBAilAK. Silt-My attention waa on Saturday directed to a montrons statement which appeared in the Observer, commenting upon your humble servant, in reference to a latter which appeared in your paper of Tuesday last. Ia that letter I stated that I do not intend to enter into controversy. I adhere to that resolution. At the same time, for th« benefit of those who do not know th« author of th« paragraph, I bag to mention that nine-tenths of it are gross asd malicious falsehoods. To those who know the author'« proceedings in England, as the editor of the Christian Âdvecete,*ad as Timothy Tracer, this repudiation is not necessary-suffice it to say, that bis recent doings are worthy of his former exploits. 1 ara.

HOBART TOWN MARKETS.—APRIL 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845

HOBART TOWN MARKETS.-APHIL 17. The improvamentwhich has taken place in oar mar- i kets, while those of all the adjoining colonies are suffer- ing depreciation, proves incontestably the effect which the une thousand pounds per day British expenditure, consequent upon the feeding by Britain of some twenty tho asa nd persons, cannot bat 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. 6d up- wards, tending to keep down the average, yet the . best sample« have gone so high as 3s. 8d. Malting barley and g«od oats arc in request at from Ss. to 3s. 6d., and potatoes maintain 3s. Hay averages from 30s. to 45s. according to quality. All other articles as before. Upon the whole th» markets certainly look up.-Murray's R*vUa.

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 20 May 1845

AGRICULTURE. AT this season of the year, when the farmers hare commenced in almost every part of the country to turn up the soil and sow the crops, it has been suggested to us that it would be useful to make generally known the results of expe- riments that have been made in past years, and to state some hints which we have received from exp rieuced fat mers, for the benefit of those w ho have yet to learn thoroughly their business. The fi st subject we shall mention is that of deep ploughing, .it has been a matter of com- plaint by farmers on the plains that their crops, in many instances, have been either wholly or partially destroyed by the hot wind, lt is sug- gested that the best means of preventingdamage from hot winds is to plough deep. By thia means the moisture received during the rainy season and the roots of the coin are enabled to * penetrate ; and so long as there is sufficient moisture at the roots the hot winds have no ef- fect. To deep ploughing should be added rolli...
