HOBART TOWN MARKETS.—APRIL 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845
HOBART TOWN MARKETS.-APRIL 17. The improvcmentwhich hat taken place in oar mar- keta, while those of all the adjoining coloniea are Buffer- ing depreciation, proves incontestably the effect which the one thousand poonda per day British expenditure, eonaeqnent 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, all circumstances considered, averag- ing 2s. 2d. per bushel, has tended to support prices.

A GEOLOGICAL "SET-TO." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845
A GEOLOGICAL "SET-TO." AT the meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, at York, on Fri- day, great interest was excited to hear the Dean of York's paper, entitled "Critical Remarks oo Certain Passages of Dr Buckland's Bridge- water Treatise," The large room appropriated to the geological section was literally crammed, and numbers went away unable to obtain admis- &nbsp; sion. The Dean directed his observations en- &nbsp; tirely to Dr Buckland's theory of cosmogony, &nbsp; and he attempted to reconcile observed geologi- cal facts with the Mosaic account of the crea- tion. The Dean conceived it to be impossible for the action of rain water on granite rocks to have decomposed them, and to have formed the upper series of rocks in a succession of ages, as Dr Buckland had affirmed. The very elements of which the upper strata consist were wanting in granite, therefore it could not be supposed that by any decomposition whatever of those rock...
SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 23 May 1845
SPAIN. THE interest of the Spanish, news still centres in the sequel of Zurbano's revolt. The last positively known of that leader ie, that, on the night of November the 2 th, Zurbano and a party of horsemen tried to pene- trate the village cf Manzanares, but were repulsed by the fire of the inhabitants. From that time he has been los: to view. His eldest son fled to France, and crossed the frontier on the 27th. Zurhano's younger eon, Benito ; his brother in-law, Juan Martinez; and one of his ser- vants-were found concealed in a vineyard, unarmed, and taken. Bei.ito was twenty-eight years of age, a major in the arrry, and very much liked. So strong was the feeling in the province against shooting the younjj man s-cording to the standing order,, without trial, that General Onbe, the commander of the troops at Burgos, hesitated, an.l sent to Madrid to ask for instruction*. The inhabitants of Logroño, oí ail shades of opinion, took advantage ol tho" delay to send a deputation to Madrid...

_%acal fictos. THE MINERAL LANDS.-The Register of Wed- nesday accuses us of over-estimating the value of the mineral lands selected by Mr Morphett and the Company, when we state it at ¿5,000 to £10,000.. Whether this ie the case or not, may be determined from the fact, that shrewd and sound-judging men have estimated that one section into which the Montacute lodes run at £10,000. Onr contemporary ought to remember that com- panies in Cornwall have been known to expend £100,000 before they excavated a pound of ore, and have afterwards realized fortunes to their pro- jectors. He should bear in mind that the ore here is on the surface, and is frequently in such posi- tions that the preliminary expenses are very trifling-that the quality of the ore is far superior to that of Cornwall, and that the difference of the expense of transit to market for a large portion is inconsiderable. There is certainly a difficulty in placing a.correct valne upon our mines, because we do not rightly know ...
