SUSPICIOUS OCCURRENCES.—A correspondent [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

SUSPICIOUS OCCURENCES. - A correspondent informs us that, some days since, a poor emaciated woman was found dead in her bed. She was the wife of a man known as California Tom, and resided with him on the Murray, near Randull's station. Information was given, and Mr. Murray, .T.P., of the Tungkillo District Council, accompanied bv a medical gentleman named Collier, pro- ceeded to the place, for the purpose of enquiring into the circumstances ; but as far as we can learn they did not arrive at any conclusion. Meantime the children of the deceased were kindly provided for by Mr. Back, a settlor in the vicinity. 'They were in a most neglected   and filthy condition. Soon afterwards, they were taken home by their father ; and, strange to say, one of them was next morning- likewise found dead in bed. We are told that the mere announcement of the death by the father procured a burial certificate. No inquest was held. If the above particulars are correct a strict investigation ...

NORWOOD AND KENSINGTON BRIDGES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

NORWOOD AND KENSINGTON BRIDGES. TO TIIK EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-Permit me to inform " Justifia" that the un- finished structure intended for a bridge, crossing the creek on the Kensington Road, was at the expense of private individuals, principally residents of Kensing- ton, and that for the want of sufficient means it was never finished. It therefore was not to be expected, that when four or five years afterwards Nonvood and Kensington were jointly created a municipal township, th» Council would finish the structure, or whatever else it may be called, especially as at the time the Council was first formed, Kent Town was laid out, and the line of traffic was diverted through Kent Town towards the Parade, William-street, and Beulah Road. And that " Justifia" may, therefore, rely upon it the Municipal Council are not likely, " in their wisdom" (as he sneeringly remarks) to direct any repairs to the bridge or platform in question, but that they will remove it altogether.

INVASION OF ENGLAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

INVASION OF ENGLAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-The rumour of a threatened invasion of Eng- land reminds rae of " the good old days when George III. was King ;" an invasion was then talked of, and all sorts and conditions of men formed themselves into volunteer corps to defend our nal ive land. The hvwyers, never behindliand in the demonstration of that loyalty which they truly feel, formed a corps which was called " The Devil's Own." Lord Erskine was the colonel, and on one occasion had his regiment reviewed in St. James's Park by the King, who, after a close observation of its performances, said " Colonel, those lawyers do not fire very regularly." " No, Sire," was the reply, " They elo not fire very regularly, but they are devils to charge." People have, unfortunately, to this day, " an igno- rant impatience" of lawyers' charges. I am, Sir, &e\, SENEX. Adelaide, August 5,1858.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

A Desperate Sepoy.-The Sepoy is an incompre- hensible being. Here we have been many dayB in the city, and at night the roads have been open to any person, and yet a Sepoy, who might have got away whenever he listed, is discovered in a house by the police to-day. He shoots one dead, wounds another, and, shut up in a dark room, doggedly awaits his assailants. Captain Burroughs, 42nd Regiment, an active and zealous officer, now comes to dislodge him by throwing powder-bags into the room. At the first explosion a sharp report is heard, and on entering the room the Sepoy is fund dead having blown out his own brains. The force of the powder blew down a part of the wall, and Captain Burrough's leg is broken by the weight of bricks which fell upon him. How long these incidents are to continue one is at a loss to conjecture, but as soon as the respectable inhabitants return in any numbers these fellows mint be detected and handed over to the police. Some are returning i P sullen submission.-...

The following correspondence has been .received by the Secretary, and will be brought under the consideration of the Board at its next meeting.

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

?\)î Anïmi ADELAIDE : WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1858. Aa'AILINO ourselves of the departure of the Burra Burra for Melbourne, we this morning publish a Sum- mary of intelligence for the English mail. "We have clone the best we could under the circumstances, not having occasion to boast, as our contemporary did yesterday, in English, that he was " rich to ' excess," or as he also did, in French, of the " embarrass des richesses" that afflicted him. On the contrary, we have laboured under all the difficulties inseparable from a new movement like our own, where, to every other deficiency, defective files and insufficient docu- ments must be added. Our contemorary, however, out of the plethora of his wealth, has undoubtedly furnished a considerable mass of information, and we give him credit for his perfor- mance. But had we known that he meant to have leaped from a four-paged to an eight-paged paper, we might have better prepared ourselves to meet him. We are happy, however, to find that th...

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

CBEDIT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir,-Having but lately arrived in town from one of the country districts, you will not wonder at my surprise at the extreme tightness of the money market in this good tOAvn of Adelaide. Bad as affairs look there, they certainly look worse here, and whereever I go, I hear little else talked of than the stagnation of commerce, and the scarcity of money; and to make things still worse, I find the Editor of the Register devoting a leader to the approval of the system that the banks are pursuing. He says, " Self-interest alone, we may be assured, will always lead these establishments to svpport to the utmost those who require assistance in all bona fide transactions," &c. Perhaps, if they knew then* real interest, and acted in accordance with them, this might be the case, but let facts speak for themselves. I am a country storekeeper. On arriving in town, I go to the merchant with whom I am in the habit of | trading, and I offer to do busi...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

EDUCATION. The education of the people, though not all that could be desired, proceeds very satisfactorily on the whole. The Government schools are sup- ported by large grants in Parliament, and the inspection of these establishments all over the colony is iioav being carried but in a very rigid manner. The A-arious mechanics' and literary institutions, and the public libraries springing up in various localities, all giA'e evidence of the same healthful feeling, and we are happy to state thal there is every inclination on the part of the people to provide on the most liberal scale for educational purposes. The subject, of competitive examinations has of late attracted much attention. We think the folloAving extracts from a recent meeting of the Central Board of Education, held August 3rd last, will be interesting, as tending to sIioav more clearly the progress of popular education in South Australia : Tuesoay, ArorsT 3.
