MINING AND MIXING COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
MINING AND MIXING COMPANIES. THE proposed establishment of a minina com pany in England, for (he purpose of working the mines of this colony, has given lise to consider able speculation. Some persons are of opinion that the introduction of capital and labor - the two grand elements of prosperity in a new country- which the operations of the company must produce, will be extremely benefical. Others, however, who have studied the princi ples of political economy, ailege that the intro duclion of capital, unless accompanied by the owners of that capital, is an unmixed evil. They say that experience has uniformly proved that, where the owners of the land or of the money of a country aie absentees, that country cannot prosper, lu the case of the- mines, ali the benefit of the produce, less the mere payments to the laborers and overseer, would go to England, while the benefit of these payments would be more than counterbalanced by the unhealthy effect ubich the introduction and employment...

CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
CANADA. THE commercial accounts from Canada, brought by the Acadia, are very favourable. From the opening of the canals lo the 25th s>f June, 3Ü3 624 barrels ot Canadian and 46,408 barrels [of American flour, and 111,021 bushels of Ca nadian and 95,227 of Americau wheat, had been received at Montreal. This is more than three times the quautity received io that port to the same date of the previous year, when it was not more than 111,031 barrels of flour, and 48,211 bushels of wheat; and this extraordinary in crease furnishes a striking proof of the impulse given to the Canada corn trade, by the Govern ment bill of the session before last. The quantity of flour shipped to this country up to the same date from Montreal and Quebec was 140,600 barrels of flour, and 136,248 bushels of wheat. With regard to the prospect of the present year's harvest, a Montreal paper of the 27th ult. says:-"AH the accounts repreeent the breadth of land laid down in both provinces with wheat as unpreced...

POSITION OF THE MINISTRY. [FROM THE SPECTATOS, JULY 6.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 8 November 1844
POSmCPÍ CF TÏIR 111NHTR Y. [FROM THE SPECTATOR, lVLY 6.j TH H Post-oHîce question is n*»rhar»s th it in which had generalship has been most glaringly « simplified. Ministers have been obliged to abandon (he uncompromising position they as sumed last week, and to submit their conduct to a scrutiny. And the only reasons assisted for Ibis reversed course are, that public excitement has now rendered inquiry necessary ; a conse quence of their own conduct which real states man ought to have foreseen and prevented; and that the leaders of the Whig opposition have not behaved handsomely to them. Upon th is latter egregious reason Sir James Graham dwells earnestly, and almost exclusively; imparting to his motion for a committee the appearance of a desire not so much lo clear himself as to blacken his rivals. Had ministers persisted in refusing inquiry, and carried it off triumphantly, tl\ey might have obtained the praise of resoluteness : had they courted inquiry from the first, they might ...
