THE ABORIGINES' FRIENDS' SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

THE ABORIGINES' FRIENDS' SOCIETY. A meeting of the Committee of this Society Avas held at the South Australian Company's Offices, on the 5th of August, the Lord Bishop of Adelaide in the chair. The minutes of last meeting being read, the Lord Bishop said that he was deputed to bring forward the question of a native school at the Goolwa, in conse- quence of the unavoidable absence of the gentleman who had given notice to that effect. The subject hav- ing been opened by His Lordship, the folloAving resolu- tions, proposed by the Rev. R. Haining, and seconded by Mr. S. Goode, were carried : *" That it is the duty of the Christian public ol' this colony to offer the means of Christian education to such aborigines, adult or children, as muy be willing to accept ¡t. " That from authentic reports received by this Committee, it appears that between 30 and -io children might be expected to join a school in the neighbourhood ol'the Goolwa. "That the Government be applied to fur the requisite ...

NATIVE SCHOOLS. [From the Educational Journal.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

XATIVE SCHOOLS. [From the Educational Journal.] Some time ago the question was raised in the daily papers respecting the natives, whether they are capable ol'being educated and civilized. Mr. Mildred, and others of his way of thinking, described the attempts hitherto made in Ibis direction as ridiculously barren ol' result. Tlie sj stem hitherto pursued was unnatural; the history ol' the only Native Institution in the colony was a sad history of disease ending in death; 110 evidence twisted to show that any good had been accomplished to an extent at all compensating for these lamentable and tragic results. In the end, it Avas almost denied that any real education had been effected ; AVhilst it is more than insinuated that the condition ol'the natives roaming about on (he banks of the Murray, or in the far North, was infinitely preferable to that of the Christian natives in the Institution at Port Lincoln. En ipiiry into the facts of the case has, however, to a large extent, disabuse...

OUR COLONIAL ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

OUR COLONIAL ROADS. The Chairmen of the Associated District Councils of South Australia haA'e just ad- dressed themselves to a very difficult question, namely, the roads of the colony-who should make them, who should take cíiarge of them, and AA-ho should pay for them ? The proposition submitted to tlie Association, and which formed the groundwork of the discussion, was that the Government should Jay out and construct all tho main lines ; that when laid out and construc- ted, the}' should then be placet! under the super- intendence of tlie District, Councils through whose districts they passed ; and that the ex- pense of maintenance should be defrayed out of the general revenue, aided by a general assess- ment upon the property of the.country, should the revenue be insufficient to meet the whole outlay. The meeting passed the first resolution, rejected the second, anel aelopted the thii'el in a modified form. Our report of the discussion is rather lengthy, but it will repay perusal ...

THE FLOCKS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

THE FLOCKS OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA The advices from England by the AlTay mail, | bringing intelligence of the reduction in the price ofAvool, have fallen rather inopportunely at the present moment, as the lambing season just over is one of the most deficient recently experienced. For some time past sheepfarmers had been com- plaining of the destruction of their lambs through insufficient feed and water, and we noAV haA-e their complaints corroborated by a very com- petent witness. Tlie substance of his statement we give beloAV. The Chief Inspector of sheep has published his report for the quarter ending 30th of June last ; and we are sorry to find him confirming statements previously current Avith reference to the bad lambing season that lias just passed by. Last year was not a good year, but this is re- ported to be much worse, tlie average percentage of lambs to eAves being not more than 55 per cent, or 60 at the outside. In a fcnv districts, where good feed and water existed throughou...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. NAVAL AND MILITARY SCRAPS FOR MAY, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. NAVAL AND MILITARY SCRAPS FOR MAY, 18.18. The minimum standard of recruit s for infantry regi- ments in Inelia is raised from 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 4 inches. Lieutenant Gencste, R.N., of Ilango-head, Baltic celebrity, has bc*en dismissed from the Royal Navy by court-martial on a charge of drunkenness'. Lieutenant Bedford Pim, favourably knoAAii for his energy in Arctic service, has received promotion under date, April 9, 1858. This enterprising officer dis- tinguished himself in the course ol' the recent opera- tions in China, more especially in an attack upon a Chinese village, in a manner to deserve the commen- dations of Sir Michael Seymour. He has returned home invalided, having been severely wounded while engaged the discharge of his duty. A camp is to be formed at Chatham to accustom the soldiers destined to take part in the India war to some of the realities of warfare. Several hundred troops will almost immediately be put under canvas. The arrange...

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

PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY. The usual monthly meeting of the Philosophical Society was held on Tuesday, the 10th of August, in the room adjoining White's Assembly Room. His Excellency Sir Richard Graves MacDonneÜ, as President of the Society, occupied the chair. The inimités of the previous meeting having been read and confirmed, The Secretary (J. H. Clarke, Esq.) stated that the . previous place of meeting having been found most incon- venient, arrangements had been made for holding future meetings in the room in which they were then assembled. The alteration in the place of meeting would involve some increased expense. His Excellency suggested that a book should be kept upon the table, in whicli members'should writs the names of the gentlemen introduced by them, and that members should become responsible for the payment of the admis- sion fee of one shilling per head. It having been remarked that many ladies had ex- pressed a desire to attend the meetings, His Excellency thought ladies...

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

THE OLD, OLD STORY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADA'ERTISEK. Sir-At the Uregory dejeuner the other daj", the Governor told us that Babbage's party- was to bo strengthened by the addition of one of the Gregorys and some more horses. This is confirmed by tho state- ment in the paper- to-day. Is the strengthening an ex- ploring party in this country with more horses meant for a joke, or is there still a believer in the power of horses to help us to a true knowledge of the interior ? Analyse Gregory's account of his wanderings, and the conclusion arriA-ed at must be that even he, with his light equipment, was entirely at the mercy of his horses, and obliged to turn aside from the object of his expedition. The acci- dent vvhich led him here shows the inutility of these agenta, and it does appear somewhat peculiar that that which was useless in one expedition should be sent to aid another at present struggling against similar difficulties. I am, Sir, &c., DEFTAEDAR. August 10, 18-58.

REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE OF THE COLONY. The Government Gazette of the 5th instant con- tained the usual quarterly revenue statement, and we now place the chief features of that docu- ment before the public. We are happy to say that the quarter just made up shoAvs consider- able improvement, and suffices to cov'er the whole of the threatened deficiency upon the year. For the three months ending 30th June last the total revenue Avas £132,289, the cor- responding quarter of 1857 only yielding £102,309. The last quarter's income, therefore, exceeded that of the second quarter of the year before by the large amount of £29,980. Taking the nine months ending 31st March last, the comparison gave about £28,000 against the pre- sent year ; but the quarter noAV reported upon brings up the whole deficiency, and gives, as its final result, £656 more income for the financial twelve months just ended than for the correspond- ing tAvehre months. On the 30th June, 1857, our income was £469,222; on th...

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

POLITICAL INTELLIGENCE. Parliament meets for '. despatch of business" on the 27th of August, until which time the usual dulne8B of our political existence (we can scarcely call it '' life") must be expected to con- tinue. During the recess considerable alterations and improvements have been made in our local Parliament House ; and two moA'ements affect, ing the routine of legislation have been discussed during the same interval. The one refers to the hour for commencing the daily business of legis- lation ia the House of Assembly. Hitherto the House has met at 1 o'clock, but several mem- bers are desirous of introducing the fashion of evening sittings. This, however, is opposed, on the ground that as many members live in the suburban districts, and return home every evening, the adoption of night sittings would tend to thin the attendance, and thus to throw the business of legislation into the hands of a feAv indiA'iduals. It is probable that some compromise will be attempted. The o...

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. AN HISTORICAL GLANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. AX HISTORIC VL GIAXCE. It is tAAenty-tAA'o years this day since the first South Australian settler landed on these shores. We refer, of course, to a period anterior to the arrival of the good ship Buffalo, with Governor Hindmarsh and suite ; as that noble specimen of the wooden walls of Old England was not, by seA'eral degrees, the pioneer of South Australian civilization. The first ship that landed a settler on the shores of this province was the Duke of York - a vessel chartered by the South Au- stralian Company-and Avhich cast anchor in Nepean Bay, Erangaroo Island, on the 27th of July, 183fi. The passengers on board this vessel were Mr. Samuel Stephens, first Manager of the Company ; Mr. T. H. Beare, with his sisters and family ; Mr. D. H. ShryA-ogle, and four immi- grants, named PoAvell, West, Mitchell, and Neal. We cannot Avithout enquiry state what has become of Mitchell and Neal, but we believe they are either dead or haA-e left the colony. Mr. Stephe...

COMMERCIAL REPORT. Adelaide, 10th August, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858

COMMERCIAL REPORT. Adelaide, 10th August, 1858. The unprecedented dulness felt throughout all de- partments of business this month, has amounted to almost complete stagnation in the trade in British goods; so much so, indeed, that importers decline offering their stocks until more life is manifest in the demand for general articles of consumption. At the departure of the last mail for England, a j good deal of pressure was felt in money, which j threatened to cripple ordinary business operations, and this want of accommodation has doubtless up to the present moment, though felt with less severity now i than at that period, exercised considerable influence I over the state of trade, and will partially account foi" the extremely limited nature of the business doing. The non-arrival of the outward overland mail at | the date of its being due, is so usual an occurrence | that no surprise was felt when the Victoria with the í May dates did not make her appearance, but we were t left in s...

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

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-The letter of your correspomdent " A-," in-   serted in this day's Advertiser, is so courteous and different from the cavilling censorious spirit which I I have too often had to contend with during my con- nection with this Institute, that I at once, more   especially because I am individually referred to, offer all explanation in my power regarding the deficiency and consequent inconvenience to which he alludes. That inconvenience has been felt ever since the In- stitute displayed symptoms of vitality ; and so long ago as December, 1856, I commenced the compilation of a classified catalogue of the works then forming the library of the Institute. The rapid growth of the latter, while it increased the necessity for completing the task, deprived me of the leisure necessary for its execution. Those who have made but a single cata- logue of considerable extent will well comprehend the fact. Your co...
