COMMERCIAL REPORT. Adelaide, llth August, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 August 1858
COMMERCIAL REPORT. Adelaide, llth August, 1858. The following market report was compiled previous to the PoBt-Office announcement to-day, that the dis- patch of the mail would be postponed till to-morrow We have, however, no alteration to record, except in the price of copper, which has just been reduced from £105 to £100 per ton. August 10, 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 on'ciiug 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 good deal of pressure was felt in money, which threatened to cripple ordinary business operations, and thli want of accommodation has'doubtless up to the present moment, though felt with less severity now than at that period, exercised considerable influence over the state of trade, and will pa...

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 August 1858
The Advertiser ADELAIDE : THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 1858. AT the Adelaide Police Court, on Wednesday, a man known as " Phil Dixon," a Swan River convict, was charged by the police with being at large in this colony prior to the expiration of the term for which he was sentenced. Dixon, it appears, was sentenced by the Swan River autho- &nbsp; rities in February or March, 1857, to three years' hard labour, for what offence we are not aware, but instead of serving out his time in Western Australia, he was shipped on board the Firefly and landed on these shores by Captain Macpher- son. The man is remanded for a month, in order to afford time to communicate with the Govern- &nbsp; ment of "Western Australia, and meanwhile he is out on bail, two sureties of £25 each being taken for his reappearance. There is nothing alleged against " Phil Dixon" since his arrival in this colony, beyond the simple fact that he is here in contravention of the law prohibiting him. We have not, the...

MAIN ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. "The times are out of joint, ah! cursed spite; That ever I was born to set them right." [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 August 1858
MAIN ROADS. TO THE EDITOlt OF THE ADVERTISFE. "The times are out of joint, ah ! cursed spite ; That ever I was born to set them right." Sir-I see by your paper of the 7th instant, that the Association of District Chairmen lia* c "v ery pro- perly brought the subject of Main Hoads before the public, and thereby giving an opportunity of di*> eusViug the. matter before the meeting of Parliament. From what 1 can learn from the resolutions sub- mitted to the various District Councils, a» well as from the opinions delivered at the Chairmen's meet- ing, it is intended thal the "same slow, costly, and un- satisfactory system of making metalled roads, shall be adhered to, notwithstanding that sjstem has been re- jected altogether, so far as main lines of traffic are concerned in Britain.'for more than twenty j ears. It appears from the report of the Central Road Board that »ince its establishment about 120 miles of road have been made at a cost of about £3,000 per mile, and that the repai...

COBBIN k STACEY v. WRIGHT. TO THE EDITOK OÏ THE ADVERTISER. Sir.-As the report of the a'ove case is given onlyon the side of the defendant, permit me through the medium of your columns to state our side of the case. On the 9th November a disastrous fire broke out on the North-parade, and, from the wind blowing largo pieces of burning shingles on to our roof, our premises were in danger of catching fire. We went to the scene of conflagration for Mr. Wright, to tell him, but he was not there. For the protection of the property (build- ing and stock insured in the Imperial Office), we used new blankets out of stock to cover the roof, verandah, and wood-work, by which means the premises were saved. The following morning even-thing that was used by us and others as covering was removed, when all that wo could recognise as ours bj- the private marks, we collected. The same morning Mr. Cobbin furnished to Mr. Wright au account, of which that published is a copy. Mr. Wright said he would be...

REDRUTH. [From a Correspondent..] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 August 1858
REDRUTH. [From a Correspondent..] The weather has during the last few days been very tempestuous, and wet, converting many portions of the roads around the Burra Mines into a mud track. The price of provisions continues high, more especially butter and meat. Flour is quiet, the retail price in some stores being 38s. per bag. A considerable numberof new houses are being erected in this and the neighbouring freehold townships. The walls of the Primitive Methodist Chapel are nearly com- pleted, and from their appearance we expect this chapel will be one of the most handsome structures out of Adelaide. The Wesleyan bazaar is appointed to take place next month. There is every probability of this being a success- ful affair.
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 August 1858
INDIA. THK IXDIAX MUTISY.-The ship Nimrod, wliich anchored yesterday in Hobsons Bay, from Calcutta, loft the Sand Heads on the 14th June, and ought thus to have brought us at least 10 days' later Indian in- telligence. Unfortunately she had no papers on board, and we can thus only glean scraps of information as to the progress of nftairs. Captain Pearse reports that the troops were going into cantonments for the hot season, the heat of which was said to be more intense than had been known in the experience of the oldest Indian officers. The European troops were suffering dreadfully, especially those newly arrived, and large numbers were dying' daily. It was reported that one or two of the landholders of Oude had come in and declared submission.-Argus, August 6.

Mr. BABBAGE'S EXPEDITION.-We have just received, (but too late for the Country Edition of the Chronicle), proofs from our contemporary, of another despatch from Mr. Babbage. It is dated "Elizabeth Creek," July 27th. Mr. Babbage has pushed on (in advance of the camp), a little through the western scrub, reaching 30 deg. 45 min. S. lat. and 135 deg. 41 min. east long, and 53 miles west of Lake Camqbell. His most northerly point is 10 miles north of the latitude of that lake. Country thick scrub, difficult to penetrate, the extra- ordinary windings of the salt lakes making the course very tedious. Fresh water is very scarce, and Mr. Babbage recommends a properly equipped party of well-sinkers as the only measure or rendering the country available for pursuits.

Tnr "FARM AND GARDEN."-We have re- ceived the second number of this publication. The first number was good, but this is better ; it is really a very useful serial and we wish it success. Tn connection with these remarks, how- ever, we think it but right to mention that the probable '' reason Avhy *' its Editor quotes exclu- sively from the Register and Observer in its pages is because he is a reporter on the staff of those journals, and, moreover, one of the proprietors. He has, therefore, a direct pecuniary interest in using the '. Farm and Garden " to puff the Register and Observer. But w e do not intend this to derogate in anv measure from the honest praise which we feel bound to award to our monthly instructor.
