THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. To the Editor of the ADVERTISE«. ¡sir-1 have seen in your impression of tltis day, a lctt?r j fiom the Chief Secretary to Mr. Torrens, intimating that i his Excellency had appointed him to the lucrative sinecure of Registrar-General under this Bill. Surely you do not mean this letter an answer to what every one desires to have a clear and unmistakeable answer. The public want tobe referred to the particular clause in this particular Act (which purports to repeal all other Acts inconsistent with it), by which there is an express authority to appoint a Registrar-General. There is provision for appointment of all the other officers, hut none whatever for the Registrar-General, and ergo all his acts must be invalid as well as those of his subordinates. I am, Sir, fcc, . ",.,"" Av ENQUIRER. August l(i, 1S.18.
THE GAWLER TOWN DINNER. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
THE GAWLER TOWN DINNER. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-I mustdisclaim any intentionof ah "ungenerous distinct ion" which your to-day's issue represents me as drawing when coupling the names of the Se gtster, &c, with the toast of the Press at the Gawler Ploughing Match Dinner.' 1 gave them that precedence to wliich I (and many others who sat near me) conceived they were entitled from their long standing and uniform advocacy of Agricultural Interests ; and certainly S3i'd nothing in disparagement of their younger contemporaries, nor iu any way placed them in juxtaposition. The " distinction" appears to me to be perfectly natural in the case of old friends and new ones, and bv no means to the disadvantage of the latter. I am, Sir, &c., R. J. TURNER. Auffust 16.1858. [Tlie par igraph to which Mr. Turner refers was not an editorial, but a reporter's paragraph, and purports io be a statement of what took place at the meeting, and for the sentiment of which we, of co...
ADVERTISEMENTS UNDER MR. TORRENS'S ACT. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
ADVERTISEMENTS UNDER MR. TORRENS'S ACT. To tin« Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-Can you inform mo the " reason why" the Real Property Act notices do not appear vatha Advertiser?. They are advertised in the Register and (tbserrer, but as I subscribe to your papers only, I do not see them unless T go out of my way, either to borrow or purchase the papers named. J might during the past week have been put to very serious trouble owing to not having seen the 4'notices" so early as [ required, and doubless many others similarly situated to myself suffer the same incon- venience. What, may I enquire, is the object of the Lands Titles Commissioners in advertising at all ? Do they do so in compliance with mere '?' form," or is it their wish that the public generally should be informed of the transac- tions occurring under Mr. Torrens's Act? If the latter is their object, then I submit, Sir, that they fail to carry out their own wishes and intentions, for most assuredly a very large proportion ...
BANKING STATISTICS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
BANKING STATISTICS. To the Editor of the ADVEIITIOEK. air- uavmg some little leisure, I endeavour to turn it to the best advantage, by reading the loading articles in the public papers, knowing that I shall find in them the best information on popular topics, expressed in a concise manner. But in looking over the Register's recent articles on banking. I have met with a peculiarity so strange, that I mest needs ask your asüi-stance to ex- plain it. In speaking of the capital employed by the Banks in South Australia, the Register only comprehends the discounts and overdrafts, making no mention of cither ? coin, bullion, or landed property; but yesterday, referring io the hanks in Victoria, your contemporary discards discounts and overdrafts, and speaks of the " capital ab- solutely employed." as consisting only of the coin, bullion, and landed property. Why banking capital should be one tiling irt South. Australia, and another thing in Victoria, is more than I can comprehend ; but if,...

Ii is said to have been composed by Doctor John Bidl, in the j ear 1607 ; but this composition, which was published bj Doctor Kitchiner, from the original manuscript in his possession, was found to be nothing more than a (¡[round for the organ on four notes, CGFE, with ttienty-six different, basses, and bear- ing not the most distant resemblance to the air in question. 2.

?jje lîtnprtistr. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, AUGUST 17,. 1S58. WHATEVER may be demonstrated aB constituting the most profitable branch of national or local industry, it is quite certain that everyone will not follow it ; and however clearly it may be shown, on the other hand, that a particular brauch of industry yields but an inferior profit, a few are sure to adhere to it. Believing that this not only has been and is the case, but still will be, we are inclined once again to address ourselves to the question of the minor imports of this colony, feeling satisfied that whether it pays as well, or not, to devote attention to these pursuits as to the three great staples of wheat, wool, and copper-wheat, wool, and copper, will never HO exclusively monopolize the field as to leave neither mind nor mu.scle for other pursuits. Abandoning, therefore, the great interests to take care, for once, of themselves, we proceed to bestow a few minutes' friendly thought upon the little ones. An amicable disc...
NEW IMPORTATION OF THE PINE APPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
NEW IMPORTATION OP THE PINE APPLE. Mr. George C. Hawker, M.P., of the Briers, near Walkerville, has received by the Thomas Campbell, two cases of \ uluable plants from Messrs. Veitch & Co., Exeter. The plants have arrived in excellent order, and amongst other valuable additions to our horticul- ture, Mr. Hawker has received the following varieties ol'piue apples, all of them, with one exception, in good order : Old Glolje, White Providence, Smooth Cayenne, Prickly Cayenne, Bicton Queen, . Black Antigua, Black Jamaica, Green Olive, Enville, Ripley Queen, Copper Montserrat. The last plant is the only one that there is a doubt about, for although a few others died on the voyage, j there ure duplicates alive. We consider this a most valuable addition to our already splendid collection of South Australian fruits, and if the plants are success- fully reared, of which we have little doubt, a most useful and ornamental addition will have heenmade to our dessert tables.

THE VOLUNTARY PRINCIPLE. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
THE VOLUNTARY PRINCIPLE. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-In your issue of the 10th instant, I noticed a letter signed "ÂWesleyan," in which it was stiggested that the Piric-street Chapel should be applied for from the trustees, to enable the Rev. T. Binney to be heard hy a larger assembly than Freeman-street Chapel would ac- commodate, and a charge should be made of only Is. per head : and I suppose as is the custom with other places of puhlic amusement (for that is the ido.t conveyed to my mind), children at half-price. The reason assigned wai, to raise a sum of money to be devoted to the Young Men's Christian Association. My opinion on the matter is, if that Society cannot he supported without resorting to such means, the sooner it is defunct the better. If Mr. Binney could be prevailed on to give a lecture to young men at White's Rooms, for the benefit of the Association, T have no doubt the ?voluntary principle would show itself I superior to sucha dodge as proposed by " A ...

THE AGRICULTURIST. BUTTER MAKING. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 August 1858
THE AGRICULTURIST. BUTTER MAKING. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. on*-it you think it worth while prolonging this discussion, perhaps you will insert this letter in reply to your correspondent " Butter." To be brief as possible, I must remind your corres- pondent that my former letter was in reply to your correspondent " Export," who asked the question why this colony did not produce more butter. My answer virtually amounts to this-that it will not pay to produce butter, in any quantity, in the corn-growing districts. And if it pays elsewhere, namely, where pasturage can be had on moderate terms, I presume that that is done at present, and yet we have not enough butter. In favour of such presumption, I would remark that it seems rather unaccountable if butter making is as profitable an occupation as your correspondent repre- sents it to be, that our colonists, who are generally pretty wide-awake, have not availed themselves of all ' the favoured localities for "dairying, unless you...
