South Australian Register Saturday 1st April 1848 ship Pauline, Captain Stelljes, from Bremen 21st November, with a cargo of merchandise and sixty-nine passengers, as named and described in our list of arrivals. The ship President, Captain Smit, was to follow in a few days, with a con siderable number of German emigrants, and may therefore be expected to arrive very shortly. Since Sir Harry Smith's first great meeting with the Kafirs, on the 23rd December, as lately described in our columns, His Excellency caused to be convened a grand meeting of Kafirs, which took place at King William's Town, on the 7th January. All the Chiefs were present, but there were not so many of the people as was expected, the number at no time exceeding 2000.
