The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 18 August 1858
?\)t &limkn. ADELAIDE : WEDNESDAY, AUGUST l8,1858. "We are now in possession of the .Tune mail, anti although its most attractive features had been previously made familial' to us l>y magnetic telegraph, we presume that it will be necessary to "advance backwards" in our career as pur- veyors of intelligence for the general public, in order to place before our readers the "news" with which tliey are more or less acquainted. But this is the natural result of taking time by the forelock, and so we must submit to the retro- gressions of science. The great political topic of the June mail, so far as relates to Home affairs, is undoubtedly the triumph of Lord Derby over his parliamentary opponents. On the 21st of May the debate on Mr. Cardwell's motion for a vote of censure was renewed in the Common«, and continued under circumstances of extraordinary excitement. Such a general breaking up of parties as then threatened to take plaee has seldom been foreshadowed, nor is it easy ...
ALGERIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 18 August 1858
ALGERIA. Tur. Goaernment of Aloekia.-The new system for the atlministration of Algeria ¡9 not secure ol' success. It is not yet certain that Prince Napoleon will accept the Lieutenancv of the colony. In all civil matters, should he accept it, he will communicate with the Emperor alone, anel he desires to have the same privilege on military and naval points. The Emperor's Ministers represent that it is necessary for the safety of the empire that the army and navy must look to Paris alone for instructions.
MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Tuesday, August 17. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 18 August 1858
MAEKET REPORT. Adelaide, Tuesday, August 17. Throughout the day business has been quiet, the advices per Havilah being looked for with some anxiety, and as the English mail letters were only de- livered in the course of the afternoon, their general tenor has not transpired. The intelligence from Mel- j bourne brought by her shews a weaker tendency, and sales of flour in quantity were made with difficulty, ' though the rough weather reported there and the con- sequent bad roads up the country will partly account for this inactivity. Flour was worth £20 to £20 10s. for best brands, and wheat rather easier at Ss. 6d. to 8s. 9d. For bran advices are various, but the demand does not appear active at Is. lid. to 2s., though we hear of quotations at 2?. 2d. The low prices of oats still bear upon this article. Bran is scarce here and has changed hands at 1?. 7d. In flour transactions have taken place at £17 10s. for medium country brands, whilst £18 is asked for best country, and £18 15s. t...
ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 18 August 1858
ITALY. Great Eruption of Vesuvius.-Letters from Naples elescribe an eruption of Vesuvius which reached a great height on the 27th of May. The loAver part of the great cone appeared on fire, and volumes of smoke were thrown up, mixed with red-hot stones and masses of lava. Several craters and fissures suddenly opened, and red-hot lava poured out and rolled along in many separate streams. The Times correspondent says that the mountain is still literally covered with a network of fire :-" Of the two lava streams which merit most attention, one moves on in a single, mighty mass, its progress only markpd by the detach- ing of mighty fragments, which fall down by their own gravitation, apparently not breaking the entirety of the stream, and opening up fountains of living, scorching fire. Another stream is fed by three new openings, not in the cone, but at a quarter of a mile, perhaps, from the base of it, which puff and pump up continually t'*e ceaseless stream of fire which is making rap...
AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 18 August 1858
AUSTRIA. As the correspondence between the British and Austrian Governments concerning the proposeel sub- marine telegraph from Ragusa to Alexandria was sent to press some days ago, it may be as vrell to state Sir John Young, the Lord High Commissioner of the Tonian Isles, deeming it necessary to have early intelligence of Avhat is passing in the Greek provinces of European Turkey and in the king- dom of Greece, has informed the Austrian* that they are at liberty to lay elown a table from Corfu to Zante. The matter, however, is not yet definitively settled, for four or five days ago an official telegram Avas received from London, in which it was askeil " Avhether the Austrian Government proposed to lay down a submarine telegraph between Rngusa and Alexandria, or between Corfu anel Alexandria." A person who is well informed of what passes in official circles informs me that the question caused extreme surprise, as the Austrian Government has repeatedly expressed itself to the followi...

The European and Australian Company are in articulo mortis, if they are not by this time actually defunct. Supported as they have been by loans and grants of public money, and by the powerful influence of numerous commercial and political friends, they have, notwithstanding, achieved a failure Avhich can scarcely be looked upon as a misfoi'tune, for its elements and details are disgraceful to the enterprise of the age in which A\*e live. Indulgence has been earned to excess, but all to no purpose ; the incapacity of the Company is noAv patent to all the Avorld, and the failure of their latest effort at amalgamation Avith the Boyal Mail Company is only Avhat was foreseen from the beginning, and predicted from the moment it was foreseen. The bankrupt Company have presented a balance-sheet to their shareholders and creditors, and no Avonder need be expressed that the shareholders haA'e determined to give up the concern. We have not opportmnity, in our present number, to give the balanc...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 18 August 1858
NEW ZEALAND. We have news from Auckland to the 20th ultimo. Of the late fire the New Zealander says :-?-" We have not yet received a detailed account of the amount of the various losses sustained ; but from replies obtained by the Belief Committee there is reason to hope that the total will not much exceed £25,000. Of this sum, however, not more than £10,000 worth was insured. The abov e total includes the value of buildings, stock, furniture, and other household and personal effects. A good deal of valuable property was saved. On the other hand, much that was saved was seriously damaged in the removal or by the rain. A public subscription in aid of the sufferers liad amounted to upwards of £1,300.
