OUR WEEKLY SUMMARIES. [Written specially for the week ending July 24th.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
OUR, WEEKLY SUMMAEIES. [Written specially for the week ending July Sith.] We have no English news to epitomize for our country readers, the ever-irregular mail still vlaying truant, and mocking our hopes as before. ^Tliere is, however, some prospect of relief, if we are true to ourselves : and if we are not, Ave de- serve, of course, to suffer whatever inconvenience may result from cowardice on our OAvn part. " Who would be free themseh-es must strike the blow." The chanco of relief to aaIi'icIi reference is now made, is presented in connection with a bargain made, or making, between the Government of the Mauritius and the Peninsular and Oriental Company ; the said bargain offering to this colony a tempting inducement to join the Mauritius line, and thus secure the advantages of communication independent of Melbourne, the sjrvices of the most competent postal Company in the aa orkl, speed, punctuality, and great com mereial advantages. Our trade Avith the Mauritius, the Cape and Ind...

TELEGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION WITH VICTORIA. OPENING OF THE LINE BY THE GOVERNOR-IN-CHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
TELEGRAPHIC COAIMUXICATIOX AVITH ArICTOEIA. OPENING OF THE LINE MY THE GOVERNOR TN-CIIIEF. AVednesday, 21st July, 1858, avíII be a day long proudly remembered by South Australians. It wit- nessed the successful lvsult of an effort of perseverance and science hitherto unparalleled in the history of tbe Australian colonie«. Space was annihilated, anel A'ic toria was brought, as it vvere, within whispering dis- tance. Telegraphic communication between the two colonies lias been established ; difficulties, Avhich at lirst appeared insurmountable, have been overcome by science and indomitable perseverance; and we are placed in the proud position of being enabled to boast ol' having been the first ol' the Australian colonies to accomplish a leaf of vast importance to the commer- cial community of both provinces, and, indeed, to all classes.

EMIGRATION FROM GREAT BRITAIN TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
EMIGKATIOX PBO^r GllEAT BBITAIX TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. In the report of.the proceedings of tlie Chamber of Commerce our readers Avili observe a lengthy debate in reference to the question of Government immigration. As this is a subject upon which not only should South Australians be well informed, but also persons at home aaIio may be contemplating a voyage to these shores, it may not be amiss if Ave oner a few remarks on tlie subject, and Ave can confidently inform our friends at home that our vieAvs on this subject are coincident with those of the majority of persons both in and out of Parliament in South Australia. Some time previously to the annual meeting of tlie Chamber of Commerce, tlie Committee of the Chamber had agreed to adopt a memorial.AA-hich. in Hie event of its being approv-ed by the Chamber at large, would have been presented to the House of Assembly soon after the meeting of Parliament. This memorial deprecated tlie insufficiency of labour, censured the present limita...
THE ABORIGINES OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA[?] THEIR PRESENT CONDITION, AND THE ATTEMPTS TO RELIEVE THEM. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
THE ABORIGINES OF SOUTH AUS TUALJA, TIIEIlt PRESENT CONlilTIOX, v.>~r> ïirE VTTr"vn*TS TO RELIEVE THEM. VVitii tlie return of each Arbiter comes the ques- tion relating to tlie aborigines, their condition, their destiny, and our own responsibilities with regard to them. It is undoubtedly a fact that tlie settlement of the white race in this province has but tended to deepen the degradation and to multiply the miseries of the aborigines of the land. That the natire races have contracted our vices without emulating our virtues, that they have to a considerable extent lost the inventive nes3, the sagacity, and the self-reliance of bar barisin. aaíUiouI acquiring 1 he arts or availing themselves of th&lt;> resources of civilization, cannot, Ave think, be denied. Having no inclination to be hewers of AA-ood and drawers of water to the uew lords of the soil, they are, notAvithhtanding, made restless and disconteuted with their pri- meval state of life. Hence, with the ret...
EXPLORATION OF AUSTRALIA. VISIT OF MR. GREGORY AND PARTY TO ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
EXPLORATION OF AUSTRALIA. VISIT OF 3IR. GREGORY AND PARTY TO ADELAIDE. The question of the exploration of the interior I of the Australian continent has, within the past t year or two. excited an extraordinary degree of interest. The Government of South Australia has despatched Mr. B. li. Babbage with a heavily equipped party, at an 'expenditure of several thousands of pounds, and the New Soutli AVales Government have despatched Mr. A. C. Gregory (of AVestern Australia) Avith a liqhtly equipped party from Moreton Bay imA'ards as far as he might be able to penetrate. Mr. Bab- bage'.? instructions were to explore within the territorial limits of our own colony, in order to dis- cover whether there AA-as any availablepasture land yet unoccupied. Mr. Gregory's mission was to search for traces of the lost Leichardt, a duty which the îîeAv South AVales Government regard in nearly the same light as the British Govern- ment regarded the duty of searching for »Sir John Franklin. In consequen...

THE TRADE AND COMMERCE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
THE TRADE AND COMMERCE OF THE COLONY. Our own articles and reports upon various departments of our local industry and branches o trade Avillhave afforded some amount of informa- tion relative to the subject indicated in the heading of this report, and avüI also have fur- nished useful data whereby the thoughtful reader might be aided in deducing his own conclusions. We have thought, however, that the authori- tative and recognised deliberations of so influen- tial a mercantile body as the Adelaide Chamber of Commerce might be advantageously given at full length in the present publication. We therefore subjoin the report : THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Tlie annual meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was held on the 2nd of August. There was an unusually good attendance of members. The minutes of the previous meeting having been read and con iirmed, Samuel Tomkinson, Esq., J.P., President, read tlie following report of the operations of the Chamber during the past year : " The Committee of t...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
MISCELLANEOUS. A Chapter of Accidents.-The steamship Victoria has at length arrived, and avo now know " the reason why" Ave have been kept waiting so long. Tlie miserably inefficient state of the machinery of the A-essel employed by the laA-islily subsidised Company is at the root of all the evil. On the 7th of June the Victoria left Suez with one cylinder disconnected, but she made a good run to Point de Galle, where she was supplied with neiv machinery to replace a portion of her oavii. On the morning of June 27 she sailed from Point de Galle for Melbourne, but on the 3rd of July it was discovered that one of the pistons was broken. After this a series of mishaps occurred. On the 12th of July she was detained in order to fix loose eccentric and pack ; on the 22nd of July her boiler tubes were leaking : on the 26th July there aaus no steam, as the P A. boiler was not feeding ; anti July 27 is reported as " ditto, ditto," and *' tubes leaking much." Tlie " ditto, ditto," pretty sign...
THE GREAT SOCIAL EVIL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 11 August 1858
THE GREAT SOCIAL EVIL. TO THE EDITOR OF THB ADVERTISER. Sir-The best efforts of philanthropists to encom- pass or arrest the gross immorality indicated above have hitherto been almost utterly thwarted and vain. Even apart from the religious aspect of the question we are surely bound to grapple with it in a social point of view. Is it not a mistake that this terrible social disease should be left to the benevolent efforts of the pious of the community AA-hile it is abandoned by the rest? Does not crime of every sort, including robbery and murder, fructify in those dens of infamy where indis- criminate sexual intercourse is carried out ? And can the body politic escape their share of the consequences, in peace disturbed, property made insecure, and person endangered? I have had something to do with societies in the old country for the suppression of this evil, and have come to the conclusion, that to seek the desired result by subscription is fallacious, as the very men who are seduce...
