He also said that he might possibly take his seat at the next meeting. The Mayor could hardly imagine how any &nbsp; gentleman who had read ...
SYDNEY MARKETS.—JUNE 4. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 28 June 1852
SYDNEY MARKETS.—June 4. &nbsp; The Mills.—Messrs. Barker & Co.: A moderate &nbsp; supply of wheat, chiefly coastwise, has arrived to market this week, for which has been given, accor- ding to quality, 6s 3d to 7s 1d per bushel. In re- gard to flour, the market is just now in so unsettled a state that a price can scarcely be quoted. The mills, however, will not make sales of fine at £18. Bran 1s to 1s 2d per bushel. Mr Briellat: An ave- &nbsp; rage supply of wheat has been received during the week, for which improved prices have been given, the best samples realising 6s 3d to 6s 9d per bushel; inferior descriptions, according to quality. A steady demand exists for flour, and prices are very firm at 18l per ton for fine, and 16l seconds. Bran, 1s 2d to 1s 4d per bushel

CUMMING EVENTS CAST THEIR SHADOWS BEFORE. An irregular Ode A. I.A. Peter Pindar. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 28 June 1852
CUMMING EVENTS CAST THEIR SHADOWS BEFORE. &nbsp; An irregular Ode a la Peter Pindar. When Peter stood for North Adelaide, He said he was the True Peter, But Neales soon beat him from the field, And made him look the Blue Peter His friends, in trying to make him Mayor, Thought they would exalt Peter, He soon was changed from flesh and blood, Like Lot's wife, to Salt-Peter. The resignation made folks think That he then was a Rum Peter, And when he next polls Robe Ward, He must be his own Trum-Peter. &nbsp; Why is Peter Cumming like Peter the Great? Because he wanted to make a Peter's burgh of his own. GROSS OUTRAGE.—Some base fellow had the impudence to send a letter O.H.M.S., to Councillor Breaker while on duty in Council. He was obliged to put it in his pocket, but it was moved and carried that it be read by the Mayor, when it turned out to be a communi- cation from Elisa Cook, informing Councillor Breaker of the gold hoax, but intimating that his being placed in the...
The Morning Chronicle. Adelaide; Monday, June 28, 1852. PEACE OR WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 28 June 1852
Adelaide: Monday, June 28, 1852. &nbsp; PEACE OR WAR. WE regret to perceive that our con- temporary, the Register, has given counte- nance to the idea that war is imminent. If Louis Napoleon is a madman, war may be declared at any moment, but all accounts agree that he is anything but mad. Now his policy clearly is to maintain peace, for if his army is sent out of the country, he will be at the mercy of the Socialists and his numerous other enemies. He is in a totally different situation from the Em- peror Napoleon, in whose time the Demo- crats were not formidable, and whose power was consolidated by his military triumphs. Besides, now that the Conserva- tives are in power, Austria and Russia will more readily co-operate with Great Britain to crush Louis Napoleon if he attacks his neighbours. &nbsp; It is clear that at present foreign war is not the policy of any continental power. The people of Germany and Italy, who have been deprived of their Constitutions, are r...

ANECDOTES OF CURBAN. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 28 June 1852
ANECDOTES OF CURRAN. Mr Curran was engaged ia a legal argu- ment—behind him stood his colleague, a gentleman whose person was remarkably &nbsp; tall and slender, and who had originally designed to take orders. The Judge ob- serving that the case under discussion in- &nbsp; volved a question of ecclesiastical law— "Then," said Curran "I can refer your &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; lordship to a high authority behind me, who was once intended for the Church, though (in a whisper to a friend beside him) in my opinion he was fitter for the steeple." &nbsp; An officer of one of the Courts, named Halfpenny, having frequently interrupted &nbsp; Mr Curran, the Judge peremptorily or- &nbsp; dered him to be silent and sit down. "I &nbsp; &nbsp; thank your lordship," said the counsel, &nbsp; "for having at length nailed that rap to the counter." &nbsp; "I cannot tell you, Curran," observed &nbsp; an ...
THE GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 28 June 1852
THE GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. The sale on Friday afforded very distinct proof of improved confidence. The country lots in several instances brought amounts con- siderably over the upset price. But the grand feature of the day was the biddings for fron- tages next Mr Strangways's North Arm Sec- &nbsp; &nbsp; tion at Port Adelaide. Mr Giles, for the South Australian Company, was the opposing bidder, and the purchaser was George Hall, Esq., M.L.C, one of the shrewdest and most prudent of our shipping and mercantile men, who has also recently visited Victoria. It says much for our port and the prospects of the colony that such men should purchase the " swamps " near the North Arm at £50 per acre. We trust this will operate as a power- ful stimulus to the Government to make the whole of these so-called marshes available to the public It seems clear that they are des- tined before long to be the centre of our com- merce and the site of a city.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 1 July 1852
CAPE OP GOOD HOPE. Bj the Gertrude we hare our usual files to the 8th May inclusive. We extract the following from a Gape paper of 1st May, giving the news of the previous month : - The mail packet, which Btarts to-day, carries home little intelligence of any moment res- pecting the war. An operation of some mag- nitude, judiciously planned, and well executed, once GJore expelled the enemy from the ravines and rocky heights of Waterkloof. but he ap- pears to have returned in considerable force almost immediately on the retirement of the troops. Several columns have also in the course of the month, acted wit!) success against the bands occupying the Amatóla mountains, and upw ards of 4,600 head of cattle have been captured with some hundred horses. From the character of the enemy and the nature of the cuuniry, no decisiva action, taken singly, is to be expected, if the only termination of the con- test is to be tlie expulsion bf the whole tribe. lt is a war of exhaustion, like the bl...
