TO CORRESPONDENTS. Mr. Pounsett, of Gawler Place, has written to us complaining that he has been designated a "pia- nist" in the directory of the South Australian Almanack, as he does not practice that profes- sion. We can only regret that such a mistake has been committed, without having the power to rectify it, as nearly the whole of the copies printed have been sold.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND—ITS STATE AND PROSPECTS. [FROM MURRAY'S REVIEW.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 February 1845
VAN DI EM EN'S LAND-ITS STATE AND PROSPECTS. TFROM MURRAY'S REVETT.] WHEN the colony was in the acme cf ita forced " pros- perity," a professional gentlemen of long and extensive colonial experience stated to us that wheat at from !0s to ' 15s the bushel, sheep at from 33s to 40s each, aud land at from £5 to £5ü the acre, was such au unnatural advance of price as that it could aol by possibility be maintained ; and he asserted positively that a reaction must of neces- sity follow, which would infallibly produce a depression equal in extent to the perfectly unnatural degree of the advance. He predicted that wheat at 5s the bushel, sheep at 5s each, and land at 20s the maximum per acre, would assuredly, and in a very short time, follow the eventually ruinous height to which prices had been forced. He was right. His prophecies have been too conecîly fulfilled. No doubt now remains even in the minds of the most sanguine, that those prices may be considered as per- manently settled throu...

EM AIM CE Li SOIiOülOSr Irl EG S to announce to his friends and fellow colonists, that having secured those large and commodious premises at the corner of Stephens Place and Rundle-street, which are so well adapted for the. storage of goods of «very description, he has recommenced his old business as Auctioneer, Commission Agent, «m&lt;tf .Appraiser* .nd can confidently refer to Iiis experience in this business for fourteen years in Sydney, and seven in Adelaide; during which period he enjoyed the confidence and support of his numerous employers, and trusts he shall merit a reuewal of their favors. At the same time, knowing that the present high duties and charges on merchandise leave very little chance of importers reaping any advantage from their exertions, he has resolved to make a consi- derable reduction in the commissions, as will be .een on reference to his terms.

NEW SOUTH WALES. [SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, DEC. 31.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 February 1845
NEW SOUTH WALES. [SYDNEY MOBVING HEBALD, PEC. 31.] | ANOTHER year will in a few hours be numbered with the years before the flood. The sun that now shines upon us will no more rise upon the year 1844. But the moral reflections which this epoch in the revolutions of time is 6o well calculated to suggest to every contemplative mind, scarcely fall within the journalist's province. We have rather to do with it es a landmark in the history of the colony, at which we may pause to look back upon the progress of afiairs since the year began its course. The year 1814 cannot, however, be rightly understood in relation to the country we inhabit, unless viewed as part of that eventful cycle which will never be forgotten by the present generation, and which must ever form a dark spot iu Australian chronology. Four years and a quarter have now gone by since the cloud6 began to gather on our horzon. Dark, massive, ami portentous, they continued to spread wider and yet wider stiil uuîil their g\oom...

The job printing has always given the greatest satisfaction, «nd he can point to work which has issued from this j press that has not, he believes, been equalled in the colony. The motto of this Office shall be Cheapness, neatness, punctuality, and dispatch." I Printing Office, ^ undle-street, Nov. ll, 1844. The proprietor of this journal, on investigating various matters connected with his recent purchase, finds that he will be able to make some changes, which, he thinks, witt be advantageous both to him- self and to the public. In the first place, the system of advertising may, in his opinion, be much improved, and made more consonant with the principles now universally adopted at home in the management of newspapers, and he proposes to make changes as follows...
RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION AND EDUCATION IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 February 1845
RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION AND EDUCATION IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. UNDER the head of "Education in South Ans-, tralia," the Register of yesterday treats of the supply of religious instruction and education for the people of this province, aad makes the strange allegation that the provision is ade- quate. At the eve of the sailing of a vessel for Eug-. land-at the eleventh hour-the editor of that journal comes forward to contradict statements, which we have made for nearly two years, with- out an attempt of disproof on his part, or by any one else. Qn the contrary, he lately published, with approbation, a letter by ..a Churchman,* in vt hich the melancholy truth was stated that, for about 10,000 people belonging to the Church of England, there is only one clergyman. With regard to education, also, the writer of this article seems to be culpably ignorant, or wilfully obtuse, ls he not aware tyt^Jj^ Government is so convinced of the larifir ML deficiency of education that hts Excellency^ some tim...
MANILLA MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 February 1845
I MANILLA MARKETS. I THE schooner Munford left Manilla on the 1st October last-Reports cigars are very scarce in the Manilla ruaiket,and at the time of the Mun- ford's leaving there were none to be purchased from Government. The supply of leaf still being deficient, th re are only a few more ma- nufactured than are required for the consumption of the place. A. new regulation has been adopted by Government to issue what overplus there may be three times a month equally between all applicants «ho may require, for exportation, those for consumption being prohibited. For the month previous to the Munford's departure, there was no overplus, and of course none distributed, and little hopes of any for some time ; so much so that whoever urgently require them buy of Spa- niards, who have been gathering them up from these distributions, and have obtained 2 dollars per 1000 above the Government prices. A great scarcity of cigars having taken place at Singapore, China, Batavia, and the Colonie...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 4 February 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE BUILDING MANIA.- I AMBVTH.-Foreigners who ar- rive tu London are struck by the immense speculations in building which nnw give life and activity to the meliopn'is and its environs. Every district presents a picture u«t unlike Virgil's description of Carthage. The workmen extend their walis, raise houses, pushing along unwieldy stones or m*ssy timber. -von:e mark out the ground for building: others carry bricks and mortar; they ail foil ivke lees. There is no part much more animated by this movement than Lambeth. The pro- digious increase of houses is really astonishing. It cpjpars by Parliamentary papers thnt within ninety ^.eTs of the last century there was only an increase of 5.6*0 houses. From 1790 to ?8'>o, the total number of houses u ii hin Ihe parish had been doubled. In I8'J2 thc nuntl-er was about 14,0!>í*. the increase since that period is altr.ost itiralru'able.
