SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SITTINGS. MONDAY, AUGUST 9. [Before His Honor the Chief Justice.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 10 August 1858

SL'WtK-ME COURT-CRIMINAL SITTINGS. MONDVV, A LI. L ST 9. [Before His Honor the Cmef Justice-.] The Criminal Sittings commenced this morning at 10 o'clock.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 10 August 1858

Post-Office for Stepney.-We understand that the inhabitants of the thickly-peopled districts of Stepney have no Post-Office nearer than that in the centre of the Norwood-parade, and that in consequence of   the inconvenience felt by the residents of the first-men- tioned locality, a memorial to the Postmaster-General is in course of preparation. We certainly do not see why so large a number of inhabitants should be excluded from postal facilities, and ¡f relief can be given them we make no doubt that the authorities will cheerfully extend it. In reference to Stepney movements, we are also informed that it is contemplated to apply for severance from the , East Torrens District and for union with the Kensington   and Norwood Corporation. The Victoria Theatre.-Sheridan Knowlea's play, "The Hunchback" was produced last evening to a large audience. The piece had evidently been long and care- fully studied, and the various characters were most creditably imperson...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 10 August 1858

NEW ZEALAND Our dates are to the 10th July. The Nelson   Examiner of that date has the following :-   Maori Conference.- Some of the natives from Motueka and Massacre Bay met those from Waka-   puaka on Monday, on Nelson beach, for the purpose of having a "talk" about the Maori, who is at pre-   sent confined in Nelson Gaol, awaiting his trial for the murder of his wife. It will be remembered that the verdict of the coroner's jury was to the effect that   the man committed the crime while labouring under temporary insanity : but the natives of Moteuka, who are said to have been related to the murdered woman, were desirous of having the murderer executed accord- ing to their native customs, while the Wakapuaka natives, on the contrary, were desirous of leaving the English law to take its own course. No satisfactory conclusion resulted from the conference, except that the Motueka and Maasacre Bay natives partook of the h...

VICTORIA. [From another Correspondent.] [We give tlie following in addition to our regular Correspondents' letters, published h» yeèterday'a im- pression.] Melbourne, August 5,1858. A In polities everything still goes on as before, an^j although the present Government have, perhaps, not so many friends as they wish, it is quite evident that the reins of the Executive are in able and willing hands, and that "action" is their principle rather than talk and promises. Several important, and no doubt very beneficial improvements have taken place of late, and amongst them I may mention, at first, the resolution in the Public Works" Department, to sub- ject all candidates for Government employ to exami- nation in their respective branches, so "as to make individual ability and merit the stepping-stcne to office instead of the old practice of interest and nepo- tism. A batch of some thirty candidates for surveyor ships underwent examination a few weeks ago, and'for only lorn- vacancies. Thi...

OUR WHEAT AND FLOUR PEODUCE.— THE SUPPLY AND THE DEMAND. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

OUR WHEAT AND FLOUR PEODUCE. THE SUPPLY AND THE DEMAND. Tlie export trade of South Australia in the article of breadstuffs is of the highest possible importance, entering very closely, as it neces- sarily ever Avili do, into the elements of our colonial prosperity. Whilst Ave continue largely to export our wheat and flour, it is obvious that Ave are at the same time feeding our oaa'ii popu- lation ; for although, under some peculiar circum- stances of trade, a large import and export business might be carried on in the same article, that is not and cannot be the case here. Our exports of wheat and flour Avili, therefore, repre- sent the surplus value of our self-produced breadstuffs ; a fact not to be lost sight of when comparing the value of our shipments of flour with that of our shipments of copper. It is, however, with much regret that Ave are compelled to proclaim in our first Summary the deficiency of last year's harvest. But thal it was deficient, and greatly so, the folloAvi...

THE PRINCE OF WALES IN IRELAND [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

THE PRINCE OF WALES IN IRELAND The Prince of Wales has paid a somewhat remark- able visit to Ireland. He started from Cork for a tour in the west, which embraced Bandon, Bantry, Skib bereen, and Killarney. It was arranged that he should keep a strict incognito ; but this seems to have been impossible. The Examiner has the following humorous remarks on the magniloquent enthusiasm Avith which all the Prince's ingoings and ontcomings were celebrated: " Is lhere no survivor of the barels to chronicle the events of the Prince of Wale3's tour in Ireland, for vulgar prose is obviously not the language to record them? The pro*e, however, does ils best to rise to the majesty of the subject, as, for instance, in tlie account which a Corfe newspaper gives of his royal Highness's arrival at Kenmare : " Though the arrival of the Prince was quite unex- pected, yet, ere 10 minutes had elapsed, the hotel was surrounded with a dense mass of persons of every rank, anxiously and impatiently awaiting t...

IN RE GARDNER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

IN SE GARDNER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-In your paper of Mondav the report of the pro- ceedings in the Insolvency Court on Friday last I (August 6th) is narrated, when an examination of Mr. Goodman Hart took place with regard to certain conver- sations had with me as he alleges ; I beg to say that so far as I am concerned in the report, that it is a gross fabrication on the part of the above-named person, and also that.Mr. JohuHames, Avho, by Mr. Hart's statement, appears to be implicated, attended personally at the Insoh-ent Court on Monday last, and applied to Mr. Com- missioner Mann for the purpose of a thorough investiga tion with regard to Mr. Hart's statements of what Mr. Hames is reported to have said to him, but winch Mr. Commissioner Mann did not consider necessary. This statement made casts a slur upon my character which I cannot allow without refutation, and as far as prac- ticable will prove, my eonduct having been straight- forward, of which I court the ful...

THE NEW PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

THE îsTEW PAPERS. It Avillnotbe deemed presumptuous if we com- mence our restañé of events and incidents by referring to ourselves. Our contemporary, the South Australian Begister, in a recent Summary thought it proper to inform English readers of the decease of the Adelaide Times newspaper; it has not, however, considered it necessary to inform its English friends of the birth of this journal, or of that of the Weekly Chronicle emanating from the same office. Our contem- porary, of course, is himself responsible not only for the publication of news in his columna, but for the sujipression of news nor should we have thought it needful to refer to the matter (as the simple fact of our appearance in the world of literature would have been enough), but we feel a little awkward at having thus to introduce ourselves, when we might have been more gracefully introeluced by our senior collaborateur. However, we pass all this by, and proceed to give our readers in the old country some accoun...

THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE. It Avould be but to weary the patience of the British public »ere Ave to signalize our first Summary by a republication of the numberless complaints, and long columns of crimination that the irregularities of our ocean postal service have elicited from the press of this colony. Suffice it to say that in all the objections urged against the European and Australian Company we heartily concur, for a more unsatisfactory bargain never included South Australia as one of its parties. Irregularity follows irregularity till disgust succeeds to impatience, and the only crumb of comfort aA'ailable lies in the conscious, ness that the Company so lavishly subsidized «rill soon break down, and that we shall have an opportunity of making some other compact, which, if it does not pro\re better, cannot be worse. The mails due at Melbourne on the 5th July arrived in that city on the 1st of August ; the Victoria having broken down so repeatedly on her passage, that it was ...
