CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. A rumour is rife in Graham's Town, that the Authori- ties have received a communication from the Emigrant Farmers, offering to place themselves ander the British Government. It may probably be the case that some such communication has beeu sent, but we believe it will be found not to have emanated from any very influential party amongst them. To our ininti it intimates nothing more than that there are dissensions and divisions amongst the emigiauts, and which may perhaps be turned to account on the well-understood principle ol " divide and conquer." -Graham's Town Journal, Oct. 8.
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WB acknowledge the receipt of files of papers from South Australia to the 5th of the present month, from which we furnish copious extracts. A great agricultural meeting, the first of the kind, was held at Fordham'* hotel on the 8th December. Specimens, says the Southern Australian, of every kind of agricultural and horticultural produce were exhibited -among which were samples of wheat, barley, oats, wool, potatoes, cabbage, onions, mangle-wurzel, cucumbers, turnips, colonial cheese, &c. The show concluded in the usual manner with a dinner, at which from ninety to one hundred sat down. A grand dinner was given to David M'Laren, Esq., the Colonial Manager of the affairs of the South Austra- lian Company, on the 31st December, previously to that gentleman's departure from the colony for England.

COLONIAL PRESS. HARVEST.-The Harvest has commenced-and wonld "1 have been nearly all cut down throughout the colony, if tï reapers could be procured ; but much grain is already \ shed out, and a great deal more will be lost for the want of '", reapers. The wheat crop will furn out better than was ' t anticipated : barley and oats will be very deficient-so '¡ will potatoes; turnips, there are scarcely any in the J colony,-although many persons have sown their fields three times this season. Hay will also be very scarce and dear-indeed it would be impossible to supply one-tenth ?; of the probable demand in the colony, were it not for the f\ quantity of wheat and barley that, being choked with :| wild oats, has been cut for hay. j[ We have seen no ground for the alarm that has been ¿ raised about a scarcity of wheat, for although in what have been usually considered the best wheat districts, the crop is not three-fourths of an average; and in some par- ticular spots it has totally fail...

PORT NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
PORT NATAL. Letters have been received from Port Natal to the 10th tilt. Everything was said to be quiet and going on well. A heavy duty on wine and spirits hnd been luid, and which seems to intimate that the farmers were fully sensible of the mischievous effects of the tree indulgence of intoxicating liquors in a new settlement. Whether a fiscal regulation, like that adopted, will have the desired effect, remains to be seen. We sincerely hope it may. The following is a translation of the official announce- ment on the subject : NOTICE.-Notice is hereby given, that the Council of Representatives of the People, in the Council held on the 8lb August, 1840, at Pietermaurilzbrrg, Port Natal, have resolved, in consequence of a memorial addressed to them bearing G07 signatures, that from the date hereof, a duty shall be lev ¡ed of two rix dollars on every gallon of brandy, and ten rix dollars on every balf-aum of wine imported into Port Natal. By order of the Council, (Signed) J. J. BURGE...

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE TRUE POSITION OF FRANCE AND ENGLAND WITH REGARD TO EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE TIIUE POSITION OF FRANCE AND ENGLAND WITH REGARD TO EGYPT. CHRONICLE (Correspondent) What is England in this affair any more, than the other powers, that she alone is to be singled out to bear the brunt of a war with France, because France for her own purposes ,i may choose to violate a blockade of Egypt which th^g-> Ottoman Sultan has thought fit to establish ? Ia the W convention so little understood that England is u> regarded as principal in the business, instead of * auxiliary, as she only is ? The whole question, from beginning to end, may be summed up in a few words. A Pacha of the Porte rises in rebellion, and'taking advantage of a moment of .weakness, despises the orders of his sovereign, the Sultan, defeats the troops that are sent against him, and attempts to establish his own independence. Unable alone to reduce him to obedience, the Sultan applies for aid from Eng- land; but her force at the moment is employed otherwise, or perhaps...
