THE NORTHERN RAILWAY. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858

THE NORTHERN RAILWAY. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-Can any reason be assigned by the Railway Com- missioners for the arbitrary way in which they are carry- ing on the extension of the Northern line. It is true that after wasting many months, a contract has been entered into for the earthwork and ballasting of part of the work. But if I am rightly informed, there is as much to be done between the Gawler terminus and the spot where they have commenced, as in the whole distance, and yet no steps have been taken either by calling for tenders or otherwise. The result will be, that the first contract will be finished and unavailable to the public for month.*. Why should this he ? The money is voted, and hundreds areunemployed. Surely the Commissioner" of Public Work* , must feel some remorse of conscience when receiving his salary. The office must be a complete sinecure. But I can promise that gentleman and tbe Government gene- rally, that this apathy, if indulged in much longer, ...

THE JÜEIST. [To be continued weekly under the auperinteudei.ee of a Pwc titionerof the Supreme Court.] No. 4.-MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 1858. THE PROPER FUNCTIONS OF THE OFFICIAL ASSIGNEE, AND BIGHTS OF IXMVLUUAL CREDITOKS. Few of the official servants of the Government stand so constantly-we had almost said conspicu- ously-in public view as the Official Assignee. His duties have an intimate relation to the commercial and tradiug interests of our community, in whatever phases these may be presented, and arc of direct ap- plication to the private and individual conduct of every man, ol' every class amongst us, as regards responsi- | bilitv to creditors. It is not, therefore, to bewondered at that a watchful jealousy should pervade the public mind in respect of the proper exercise of an office of so much importance, of so wide and general a range. We are not writing to depreciate the value of such au office, far less to detract from the merits of the officer in question. The gentleman by who...

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Monday, August 16. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Monday, August 16. I Telegrams have been received from Portland and Guichen Bay. From the former, noticing the arrival and departure of the Havilah ; and from the latter that she was in sight there, so that her arrival may.be looked for in the course of to-morrow. At a meeting, convened to-day, of the insurers and shippers per Atrevida, those present, consisting of nearly the whole number, consented to the settlement of her general average here ; and upon the necessary surveys and estimates for her repairs being made, the lowest tender will form the basis of adjustment for I the cargo ; and shippers or holders of bills of lading will be allowed, without payment of freight, to receive back theil' various proportions of the cargo upon pay- ment of their contribution.

POSTAL ACOMMODATION IN THE NORTH. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858

POSTAL ACOMMODATION IN THE NORTH. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-Allow me through the medium of your columns to call attention to the extreme want of postal accommoda- tion in the north district, particularly as at the present time the stockholders and residents are trying to collect funds for a private mail wliich has just commenced a pre liminary trip between Port Augusta and Mount Serlo, a distance not less than 230 miles, and which I am of opinion   can never be consistently carried out for the want of suf-   ficient funds, unless the Govertiment grants a subsidy   towards it.     The present northern post-office is at Port Augusta, at   which place there is a mail delivery once a week. Now,   if you take into consideration that north and east of that port there is at least 14,000 square miles of occupied country which contributes to the Government Treasury at least £7,000 per annum ...
