LITERATURE AND ART. THREE STORIES OF REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1852

LITERATURE AND ART. THREE STORIES OF REAL LIFE. It is our endeavour as far as possible to confine the discossious in the leading columns of this journal to subjects of a serious cluj-acter. When, for example, any notice of the administration of justice is found in this portion of our columns, it is because some right remains without vindi- cation or some outrage un redressed. For once we will venture to violate this rule. "We do not calL upon our readers for any display of indignation, cor ask them to tax their reasoning faculties very heavily, for no injustice has been done and no nice point of law remains in abeyance. It may be, however, that amidst the uniformity of Maynooth discussions and the twenty-fold repetition of Militia orators, a few drops from the pure fountain of Loudon life may not fill without a genial influence upon th« parched imagination of the British politi- cian. The fact is, that in the course pf the last few days our police reporters have furnished us with th...

THE OPEN COLUMN. " Audi alteram partem" THE LUNATIC ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1852

THE OPEN COLUMN. " Audi al te ram parfcem." THE LUNATIC ASYLUM. I Sir-I must again call your attention to thö derangement of trie Lunatic Asylum. It is not only made the receptacle for the Destitute Poor, but it is also transformed into a Lying-in-Hospital One night last week two births took place in the Mad-house, and accouchements are weekly occurring. Is it reasonable that sane women should be confined in the Lunatic Asylum, while the space of the building is so occupied by the Destitute that there is not sufficient room for the Lunatics themselves ? As I before stated the ventilation is very defective. Each dormitory is only adapted to one patient, but now, owing to the crowded state of the building, in several instances, two lunatics heat and irritate each other during their long and sleepless nights. Classification is impossible-^ yet, notwithstanding the partially arranged and the confirmed mad are huddled together, there is not bad accommodation for all, but the goal is reso...

CHANGES IN THE CONSTITUTION. To the Honourable the Legislative Council of the Province of South Australia. THE MEMORIAL of the UNDERSIGNED ELECTORS ir. the said province, Showelh That your memorialists have learnt with regret and alarm that a proposition has been brought before your honourable House for the making of great organic changes in the Con- stitution only recently granted to this province by the Imperial Parliament, by establishing universal suffrage and a system of secret voting, and abolishing the properly qualification of members. That, in the judgment of your memorialists, the proposed changes in the Constitution are j inexpedient, uncalled for, and unsuitable to j the present condition and requirements of the j people of this province ; and they are not in accordance with the political privileges eu-1 joyed by the people of Great Britain. j That, even if such proposed changes were desirable, yet to enact them in this province at the present time with the expectation o...

ODDS AND ENDS. OYSTERS.-A paper in Dickens's House- hold Words states the spawn ef a SIB gie oyster.will contain oysters enough for 1,200 barrels. DINT POE THE LAWYERS.--A Pensyl vanian paper says of Judge McClure, that the other day some case turned up in which the truth was perfectly clear, but which the attorneys seemed determined to keep out of sight, when his Honor, apparently wearied out, remarked, " Gentlemen, thc object of the law is to unveil the fact, not to conceal it If the defendants ere charged with having laid their heads together like three tadpoles, it is pot important whether their tails were in a similar juxtaposition." LYIKG.-Lying supplies those who are j addicted to it with a plausible apology for j every crime, and with a supposed shelter, from punishment. It tempts them to rush j into danger ftom the n-ere expectation of, impunity ; and when practised with frc-, quent success, it teaches them to confound j the gradations of guilt, from the effects of 1 which ...

THE OPEN COLUMN. " Audi al terato partero.." THE ASSA.Y-OFF1CE. Mr EDITOR,-Looking at the miserable shortcomings of the Assay-office for some day* past, I am disposed to consider the statement of oar Colonial Secretary as to the temporary nature of the establishment to be a piece of face ti«, and that we shall discover it to bs much more permanent than will suit the depositors in tue Public Treasury. Certain it is, that instead of giving a handsome profit, or indeed paying its own expenses, which with less than ordinary diligence it would de, *t must, if not very much expedited; prove a serious loss. The owners of the 500 or 600 lots' nov in the Office will, I am sure, fsa! obliged to the Morning Chromate- tor its af? sisstance in catling attention, to Abis' matter.

Mr Fenn defended the prisoner. Henry Harland stated that Ute prisoner rame to the bar about dusk on Tuesday evening, and in pay* ment for a glass of brandy, tendered a brass piece as a sovereign. Witness objecting to receive it, the prisoner paid lurnea silver, and he then gave him in charge Mr Fenn argued that the piece did not resemble a coin of the realm, and was therefore not a counter- feit, it was mach thinner than a sovereign, and of an entirely different colour. Upon the obverse side was her Majesty's head with the words " Victoria Regina, 1849," and on the reverse a mounted soldier wearing a crown, and trampling a dragon únder foot with the legend " To Hanover, 1837."
