From Leipzic, under date of the 15th June, we learn that the supplies of wool were very considerable, and that room could scarcely be found for them. Business was brisk, and prices opened at the range of the other fairs. Many holders had required au advance, but afterwards were more williup: to sell at the previous rise.!

FOOD FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 December 1844
FOOD FOR CATTLE. WE have pleasure in copying from the Sydney Herald the following interesting letter, on the ] important subject, of raising artificial food for 1 callie : - ¡ » -TO THE EDITORS OF THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. , Gentlemen-As I have had considerable ex ; perience in the mother country in the way of ' feeding and grazing cattle, t am therefore a , good deal surprised at Mr Dawson's letter, which ' appeared in Monday's Herald, relative to the , raising of artificial food. Be seems to think that artificial food could : not be raised at a rate that would reimburse the ? grower, owing to the prevalence of drought and , high tate of labour. I am far from doubting , Mr Dawson's knowledge in that department, L nevertheless, I think he is too anxious to dissuade persons from making the experiment. I am - quite of opinion that clover, rye-grass, tares, fand luceme, might be raised ia the greatest j abundance on any ordinary soil, provided that i the ground is well summer fallowed...
THE LOCUSTS. (Continued from our Paper of Friday, December 13.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844
THE LOCUSTS. BY NATURA AM ATOP. XContinued fro.fi our Paptr of Friday, December 13.) WHEN the migratory locusts b gin to ravage a region or tract of country, every method that j can be thought of is naturally put in practise to stop them. The larvae are then a great source, of annoyance, for not having wings to fly, and preserving the same straight forward habits, thev crawl or run along, devouring everything in their way. Dr. Shaw says that in Barbary \ to stop their progress, trenches were dug and i filled with vt aler, and fires lighted in every di lection, but such were their ti umbers, that-the former were soon filled up, and the latter put out, hy tue immense swarms that succeeded each otlwr. Sheep, also, are sometimes driven into the field, wheie, running about, they trample great numbers to death. Here the' difference in their habits is great, and as they neither mi- grate nor congregate, they are scarcely noticed in their preliminary states, never entering our gardens, or a...

Though we may dread the lips we once believed, And know their falsehood shadows all our days, Who would not rather trust and be deceived, Than own the mean cold spirit that betrays ? ;Love on, lore on ! though we may live to see The dear face whiter thau its circling shroud ; Though dark and dense the gloom of death may be, Affection's glory yet shall pierce the cloud. The truest spell that Heaven can give to lore, The sweetest prospect mercy can bestow, Ia the blest thought that bids the heart be sure 'Twill meet, above, the things it loved below ! Love on, love on ! Creation breathes the words Their mystic music ever dwells around ; The strain ia echoed by unnumbered choras, And gentlest bosoms-yield the fullest sound.

SCOUNDREL THE SECOND.—CESAR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844
SCOUNDREL THE SECOND.-CESAR. There were several eminent scoundrels of the name of Caesar, but the most distinguished one of them ail was the first who made it notorious - Caius Julius Cns sar. The reader is probably aware that Julius Caesar was an ancient Roman, who flourished in the century preceeding the Christian aera, and that he has the credit of having been a hero of great renown. Caesar was the surname of the Julian family* It is said to have been derived from Casarles, a head of hair; one of the Julii, in early times, having come into the world with that ornament. Thus, perhaps, our Wigginses were so called because one of their ancestors was famous for his wig. It is odd that the peculiarity which the Romans called Casar, should have beeu pre- cisely that which we tenn Brutus. Julius Caesar was a lineal descendant from iE » as. JEtias was a celebrated vagabond, who ran away from Troy, when, having been set on fire by the Greeks, it became too hot to hold him, and squatted, Y...
PUNCH'S LIVES OF EMINENT SCOUNDRELS. PROEM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844
PUNCH'S LIVES OF EMINENT SCOUNDRELS. PROEM. LET it be granted that whoever commits robbery and murder is a scoundrel, and consequently that the more robbery and murder he commits, the greater scoundrel he is. Now, we hope the reader will not be startled at our entering on our list of scoundrels, individuals whom he may have been taught to cali heroes. Without more ado, let us measure pens with Plutarch. SCOUNDREL THE FIRST. . This notorious thief was the son of Philip king of Macedonia, who was a thief before him, and I of Olympias, his queen. According to some, himself, and his mother (who appears to have beeu deranged), among the number, he was the son of Jupiter. Alexander had the advantage of certain mo- dern and minor heroes of his slamp, who have mostly come to the gallows, in being abie to read and write. Lyslmachus taught him his Aiphahetagammadelta. His finishing tutor was the philosopher Aristotle, who instructed him how to fight with syllogisms ; but that was not the sort...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 17 December 1844
TO CORRESPONDENTS. WE make it a point not to refuse communications it ?hey are properly worded, but we must confess we have great doubts of that signed " De Vere,*' bein? included under that category. We appeal to himself or any of bis friends, whether the words "pround ly," "bused," "conplied witt," " unshakled," «' sak," are English words. We grant that De Vere's lan- guage is in some parts quite romantic, hut we object (for example) to combining birds " decked out in scarlet, bespangled o'er wiib stars, breast of orange and emerald in its hundred shades," with "onemore beautiful than the rest it was small bird not much larger than your thumb. The words may be very finn, but nothing will make up for deficiencies in spelling and grammar. If our correspondent will try it again, and submit his manuscript to a friend hefore sending it for publication, we promise him favorable consideration.
