ADVERTISEMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 10 January 1845
[ADVERTISEMENT] TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. SIR-I appeal to you and the public-was there ever a mote malicious, a more disgraceful, at tempt at the persecution of an individual, than that practised on me by the Register, without any provocation whatever ? A gross breach of confidence is first committed by the publication of a letter of mine, not intended for any eye but that of the party to whom it was sent; the public are very artfully led to suppose that I ad dressed this letter to the party through the me -dium of the press; the very next day a libel on me makes its appearance, coupled with the coarsest abuse; and to-day, I am told that the columns of this abusive paper will not be open to my reply, unless I pay for its insertion ! This is certainty a pretty way of manufacturing news; first to slander a man, and then ask him to pay for clearing his character ! Daily news must be scarce indeed ! The readers of the Register must be people of exquisite taste ! The fact is...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. HOBART TOWS COURIER, DECEMBER 10 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 14 January 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [HOBART TOWS COURIER, DECEMBER IO ] THE Waterlily, which arrived from Hobart Towi yesterday, brings us papers to the 11th instant j Upwards of forty German emigrants had arrive* in Hobart Town from New Zealand, and wer stated to be suffering under great destitution. I is a great pity that some kind friends had not for warded them to this colony. Their services hen would be invaluable in the cultivation of the vine for which business, we are told, they originally I emigrated. They cannot possibly find employ I tnent in the already overstocked labor market o I Hobart Town, more especially as the vine is noi [cultivated there. I At the Annual General Meeting of the Derwenl and Tamar Assurance Company, held on the 9tl I instant, a resolution was passed for reducing th&lt; rate of discount on bills of exchange, and ol interest on mortgages, to 6 per ceut per annum : I a dividend of twenty shillings per share was alsc declared.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 14 January 1845
TO THÉ xnrroR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. Sta-The'present price of wheat is moat disheartening to the farmers. Can they live et present prices P I fear not. What then is to be douer^-Tfce prospects of the Mauritius, Sydney, and other colonial markets, do not seem to hold out sufficient inducements for our merchants to buy, and certainly no one can expect them to purchase without the prospect of à merchant's profit. The same thing pretty much, applies to Britain where, with, their late abundant harvest (taking also into account the unusually large harvests of Canada and the United States) no mere speculator can hope to do much good at even onr present ruinous prices. I call upon yon, sir, as a journalist, and as a man acquainted with commerce, to use the talents you possess, and to give to your readers the benefit of your consideration on the .following points : 1. -Are the regulations as to distillation such as to entirely prohibit the conversion of our unsaleable grain into a marketab...
Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. THE COMET. Adelaide, January 10, 1845 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 14 January 1845
CTorresiJDttîieucr. TO THE SDtTOB. OF THE SOUTH AU8TKA.UA.N. THE COMET. Adelaide, January 10, 1845. I SIR-In your paper of January 7th there appeared a 1 letter containing the approximate elementa of the orhit, j together with an epbemeria of the comet discovered by . M. Mauvais in July last, and which calculation, being j published under the authority of the Royal Observatory j at the Cape, may be reasonably assumed to be correct ; j upon this supposition, then, the comet at present visible here to the naked eye is not the one discovered by H. Mauvais, and to which the published elements refer, but another and different comet altogether. The "Mauvais" comet, according to the ephemeris, shonld appear nearly overhead in the zenith, with a small declination (not two degrees) to the BOH th, and probably with a telescope of some power it would there be discovered. It should pass the meridian about 7h 25m on the evening of Wednes day next, January 15. The following positions of our " vis...
ATMOSPHERIC RAILWAYS.— RAILWAY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 14 January 1845
ATMOSPHERIC RAILWAYS. - RAILWAY IN TELLIGENCE. FROM the success of the «hort Atmospheric detail wray -from Dublin to Oajfeey, very great at tention has been excited in reference to the above invention, and very able reports upon it had been drawn up by many eminent men, both on account of the French Government, and Eng lish Railway Companies. The result had been unfavorable. The apparatus at the Dublin and Dalkey Railway, consists of a pipe 15 inches in diameter extending the entire length of the Railway. Along this pipe a piston passes to which the carriages are attached, and which moves along with them, the motion being com municated to the piston by atmospheric pressdre wheo the air is partially exhausted from the pipe by a powerful pump fixed at one end of the main. Of course the velocity of the train is determined by the rapidity with which the air is pumped out. The chief difficulties have arisen from leakage of air into the tube, the greater part of which is by the piston, wh...
BANK OF AUSTRALASIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 14 January 1845
BANK OS AUSTRALASIA. AT a meeting of the proprietors of this Bank, held at tba office, 2 Moorgate-atreet, London, in the beginning of July, an account of which bas only lately reached the colony, J. S. Brownrigg, Esq., Rf .P., in the chair, Mr Q. De Beauvoir Priaulx, proposed that the «umber I of shares qualifying for the Direction should be 50, in place of SO as at present. The average ! number of shares held by, individuals was 37, and more than ooe^fifth of the proprietors held j 50. The capital of the eon cern having been in I creased to £2,000,000, he thought the qualifi cation should be correspondingly increased, it being a great object to get men in the Direc tion who possessed a large stake in the com pany, and who would thus be more devoted to its interests. Sergt. Gaselee seconded the motion. He said he possessed 225 shares, and had not left the concern long ago because he had confidence in those who managed. It was anomalous that directors having only £9000 invested, shou...

THE CORN TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 14 January 1845
TOT CORM TRAAB. The following communication from a corn factor in London baa been received by a farmer on the Adelaide plains :- , ' Yonr wheat per Cartair, though of a very good sort, and a fine sample of it, most have been, originally in fected arith weevil, tor, on being shot in a dry warehouse } and exposed to light and air, this vermin immediately made its appearance, and inereaééa so rapidly that, siter aU poeaible pains ia Mark Lane, '! could get only 50a per quarter, instead of 58a.
