ORIGINAL POETRY. CALL TO ARMS! Ho ' South Australians one and all   Will ye respond to martial call?         Then hear, Australians if ye will Leave off your work and come to drill You know if Britain goes to war       With all the foes she had of yore, Her men and ships our greatest boast. Cannot be spared to guide our coast, Nor do I know why England should     For ever guard us if she could   For then the men, whose daily toil   Is poorly paid on Bntish soil, Would heavier taxes have to pay     For men and vessels sent this way   To fight for us would this he right? No, we ourselves should learn to fight       You know 'tis said in British story, When Britain's fall gave Rome new glory.         Rome...

AN EXCRUCIATING JOKE.-In the reign of Charles II. it was customary, when a gentleman drank a lady's health, to throw some article of dress into the flames in her honour, and all his companions were obliged to sacrifice a similar article. One of Sir Charles Sedley's friends, perceiving that he wore a very rich lace cravat, drank to the health of a certain lady, and threw his own cravat into the fire. Sir Charles followed the example very good-naturedly, but said be would have his joke in return. Afterwards, when he dined with the same party, he filled a bumper to some reigning beauty, and called on a dentist to extract a decayed tooth which had long pained him. Etiquette de- manded that every one of the party should have a tooth extracted and thrown into the fire, to which they all yielded, after many murmurs about the cruelty of the thing. EXTRAVAGANCE IN DRESS.-The extravagant manner in which domestic servants dress, is one of the follies of the age, and not a more harmless folly e...

METEOROLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

METEOROLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVEBTISEB. Sir-It is certainly a good beginning you have made, in noting the directions of the wind and the times of the tides. May I suggest another addition to your memo- randum, and that is the daily indications of the thermometer in the shade at noon. By publishing a correct daily report of such obser- vations, it would, I have no doubt, be of service to many. Tours, &c, WEATHERCOCK.

SUPREME COURT—IN EQUITY. [Before the full Court.] WEDNESDAY, JULY 14. MCKENZIE V. MCDERMAID. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

SUPREME COURT-IN EQUITY. Before the Full Court. WEDNESDAY, JULY 14. MCKENZIE V. MCDERMAID. This was a claim for the specific performance of an agreement, respecting a piece of land, in the vecinity of Clare. The land is situate between two roads, one of which forms its eartern boundary, and is described as a government road, and the question was which of the two was the identical government road referred to in the agreement for the sale between the parties and also a question as to plantilff's title. The Court deli vered judgment as follows :   This is a claim filed by the plaintiff for the specific performance by the defendant of an agreement made by him with the plaintiff for the purchase of a piece of land in the township of Clare, on Section 39 of the Hutt River Survey, which is described as being bounded on the east side by the present public road, and as in- cluding all buildings and improvements made or erected thereon, but not including the store on the east sid...

ADELAIDE CHORAL SOCIETY. - The second quarterly concert of the above Society was given last evening, at White's Assembly Rooms, King William street ; the entertainment provided was most carefully selected, and reflects the greatest credit upon the Committee. The execution of the various difficult pieces was of the highest order ; the opening overture selected for the occasion was " La Dame Blanche," by Boildieu ; followed by selections from Rossini, Glover. Osborn, and Louis Bellini ; and the celebrated chorus from " Clemenza di Tito," by that inimitable composer Mozart, formed the first part ; the fire-the melodious- ness-the boldness of harmony-the inexhaustible in- vention which characterizes this great composer's works, was verified and made manifest in the fullest sense, and the audience seemed fully to appreciate both the beauty of the music, and the ability of the performers ; but the great success of the evening was a duo on the violin and piano, from " Torquato Tasso," by M...

VICTORIA. [Per Magnetic Telelegraph.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

VICTORIA [Per Magnetic Telelegraph.] The flour market has been so excessively quiet during the week as hardly to call for remark or afford quotations, and prices are consequently wholly nomi- nal. Adelaide sorts are held for from £19 10s., to £21 10s. Tasmanian £20 per ton. Wheat is in less en- quiry, the quantity offering is, however, small, and 8s. 6d. to 9s., may be considered as highest ruling rates. Oats-the reaction in the value of this article has been quick and heavy and prices have rapidly declined. Sales of Scotch oats are reported as low as 5s., and colonial at from 6s. 6d., to 7s., per bushel. Barley-Cape sorts are perfectly neglected for Eng- lish, there is a trifling enquiry, prices ruling from 7s. to 7s. 3d., per bushel for prime samples. Maize is in little enquiry, and dull of sale and beyond 7s per bushel no quotations can be be accorded. Bran is in less enquiry. The reduction in the value of oats has naturally influenced the price of this article, and large sales h...

A MISER MAKING A WILL. [From "Our Moors and Fens," by F. G. Proffend.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

A MISER MAKING A WILL. [From " Our Moors and Fens," by F. G. Proffend.] " Is the room clear ?" he demanded, as his son closed the door behind him. " Is the room clear ?" and he strove to penetrate into the darkest and re- motest recesses of the chamber ; but the twilight pre- ceding that long night which shrouds all earthly ob- jects from mortal view was fast gathering round him, and obscuring the outward vision of the miser, who had for so many years seen everything but-good. " Stoop down," he added when the attorney an- swered " Yes ;" and, as if fearful of any lurking spy hearing and defeating his last and only testamentary disposition of his property, he whispered in Mr. Medill's ear, " I leave to the oldest boy of my second son Henry all my estates, and money, and houses, and lands, and mortgage debts ; to my eldest son Ernest what I cannot keep from him, a title and the entailed estate of Paradise, and Lady Ivraine if he can find her ; to my ralatives what they will scarcely t...

ADELAIDE PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY. [We yesterday reported briefly the routine business transacted at the annual meeting of the Philosophical Society, on Tuesday last. We now give the report and balance-sheet, which we were unable to obtain on that occasion.] Mr. Howard Clark read the report as follows : "In presenting their customary report to the members of the Adelaide Philosophical Society, the Council regret that they cannot refer to any marked signs of progress during the past session. A few meetings have, it is true, been far more numerously attended than any of those held in previous years, and a few papers have been read referring to subjects of local interest; but, on the other hand, the number of subscribers has not materially increased, nor have members generally responded to the call made in the Council's report; by taking a more a more active part in the transactions of the Society. It is unreasonable to expect gentlemen to devote their time and thoughts to the preparation...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. THE PRINCE OP WALES AT BLARNEY.-Blarney has been rendered famous in song and story by its possession of a stone so magical that whoever kissess it at once becomes a modern Demosthenes. As might naturally be expected, his royal highness was attracted by the renown of this wonder-working object, and has paid it a visit. If, however, dependence is to be placed on the veracity of the Cork Reporter, the heir apparent had not the felicity of embracing it with his royal lips. With some difficulty, and the exercise of no small degree of caution, the distinguished tourist succeeded in ascending the broken staircase to the top of the castle to view the magic stone which "Whoever kisses Never misses to grow eloquent." But, alas ! the stone is so placed that its votary must be held by the feet, with his head pointing to the green sward that smiles " Far, far below," before he can suceed in touching it ; and Captain de Ros, who had special charge of his royal highness, di...

TIIE HEALTH OF THE CITY.-We have been requested to call the attention of the Corporation to   the deposits of rain water upon the unoccupied lands in many of the small cross streets in the city. In warm weather such nuisances are sufficient to create a pesti- lence; and as in many instances we observe that filling in to a very small extent, so as to give the water a gentle fall, would remove the evil, we hope that re- gard for the health of the community will prompt the adoption of the necessary steps, prior to the approach of the summer months. BUILDING SOCIETIES.-An error occurred in our paragraph in yesterday's impression under this title. The summary of the report appended to the paragraph related to another Permanent Building Society, and not to the " North Adelaide Permanent Building Society." The latter has only been estab- lished a few months, but is progressing steadily. THE NELSON FAMILY.-We have been re- quested to intimate to the play-going portion of the pu...

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, JULY 15, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

The Advertiser ADELAIDE : THURSDAY, JULY 15, 1858. THE comments that are now publicly made in every place of business with, reference to the dis- inclination of the Banks to give accommodation to their customers, are of such a nature as to ren- der- it wholly impossible for the Press to maintain silence on the matter. The most unexceptionable paper has been refused by the bankers, and the result is that business operations are cramped and retarded to a degree altogether beyond the necessary limits of prudence. It is. of course, a matter of speculation to those who are not in the secrets of the Bank-parlour, as to the cause or various causes that may have occasioned this unexpected, and as we sincerely hope, temporary want of confidence in the trading community. We know it is usual for the discount department of the various Banks to be managed by gentlemen connected with the commercial world, of sufficient standing, respectability, and independence to justify the confidence of the pu...

THE VICTORIA THEATRE.-" Guy Maunering" was performed last evening to a rather thin house, but was very favourably received. Misses Carry and Sara Nelson were deservedly encored in " The Banks and Braes," and the " Echo Duet," by these ladies also met with loud applause and secured for them a shower of bouquets. The perfermances concluded with the comic drama " Parents and Guardians" which kept the audience in a roar from the commence- ment to the close. NARROW ESCAPE.-Between 7 and 8 o'clock, on Wednesday morning, as some labourers were pro- ceeding to their work they discovered an elderly man completely imbedded in the mud of the Torrens con- tiguous to the bridge in King William-street. The poor fellow was almost lifeless, but upon being con- veyed to the hospital it was ascertained that the only external marks of injury were some severe bruises. Restoratives were administered, and in a short time   he was enabled to state that his name was Luke Oliver, and that he ha...

THE COTTON TRADE OF GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858

THE COTTON TRADE OF GERMANY. It may not be altogether uninteresting to give the following statistics of the cotton trade of Germany carried on in the undermentioned countries connected with the Zollverein. They are taken from an April number of the Monetary Times . BAVARIA.-Amongst the several states of the Zollve- rein, where the cotton manufactures have increased, it should be observed, above all others, that Bavaria has made a great extension. This country, which two years ago reckoned only 50,000 spindles, possesses at the present time 16 manufactories with 316,700 spindles, and consumes annually 29,800 bales of Ame- rican cotton, and 5,800 bales of Indian, making the total consumption 35,600 bales. Two new manufac- tories will be in active employment in the course of a year, which will have a total of 80,000 spindles, and a power of consuming 7,500 bales of American, and 1,000 bales of Indian cotton, besides six others that have been enlarged by 152,000 spindles ; so that in th...

THE NEW PAPERS.-The South Australían Adver     tiser, and The South Australian Weekly Chronicle, have been called into existence by the universal demand of the public for a new Daily and a new Weekly Journal, in harmony with the Spirit of the Age, of independent tone, of constitutional Liberalism, of catholic sentiment, unfettered by party obligations, reflecting honestly the opinions of the majority, and at the same time giving free scope for the exposition of the views and wishes of the minority. To harmonize the various industrial interests of the Colony, to prove, that although diverse they are not opposed, to reconcile free discussion with good feeling, to give to every citizen a medium through which he may utter his opinions, and to uphold, none the less, the policy which the Editor himself conscientiously adopts, will be the undeviating aim of the New Papers. POLITICIANS will find in the New Papers a free chan- nel for the interchange of thought and ...
