MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

MISCELLANEOUS. THE ENGLISH COTTON MANUFACTURE. --The accounts from the Lancashire manufacturing districts continue to wear a sombre aspect. Every "week- additions are made to the number of mills stopped, while many more are working only Bhort time. Great distress prevails through out Lancashire, and the number of operatives receiving poor relief was, by the last statement, 50,000, which repre sents but a small amount of the destitu tution of the district. The certainty of a long continuance of the American war has stimulated speculation in the Liver pool cotton market, and again sent up prices, the effect of which will be still further to curtail employment in Lanca shire. THE POPE AND THE FBENCH HEIII AECHY.-Thirty-six bishops-nearly one half of the total numbers in France-have notified to the Minister of Public Wor ship their intention of repairing to Rome, in compliance with the summons of the Pope. No impediments will be offered to them by the French Govern ment. SPECULATION IN ...

MOUNT GAMBIER CIRCUIT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

MOUNT GrAMBIEE CIRCUIT COURT. In the Supreme Court on June 6, the Attorney-General called the attention of the Court to two cases set down in the list of Causes for trial at the next Civil Sittings of the Court, the causes of action in which he was instructed to say, arose in the Mount Grambier district, and the witnesses also residted in that district. He mentioned the circumstance to ascer tain whether the Court was not of opinion that all cases originating in that district should not be tried in the Local Court there. The Chief Justice referred to the 8th clause of the Act, which provides that " such felonies and misdemeanors, and such civil actions, shall be tried, and such damages assessed, at any Court to be holden by virtue of any C&mmission as aforesaid, as may be authorised by such Commission, or as may be directed to be tried or assessed at such Court by any rule or order of the Supreme Court to be made in that behalf." Then the question was whether the Supreme Cou...

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 1862. THE LAW OF LIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

tl0viet' Wat#, Published every Friday morning.. , FUllUY, JUNE 27, 1862. TJTE LAW OF LIBEL. OUR headers will have observed that con siderable excitement has been produced by the somewhat novel trials for libel that have lately taken place in Adelaide and Melbourne. In both cases the ac tions were brought against representa tives of the newspaper press, and they illustrate curiously the working of the lav/ of libel. Not many years ago it was held in law that the greater the truth the greater the libel, in other words, the clearer the proof by which an allegation against personal character was establish ed, the greater right had the person as sailed to recover damages. It is evident that under such a law to be always en forced, public opinion could hardly oper ate as a check upon immorality. To say that a man was a drunkard or a libertine, although the fact might be known to every individual in the neighbourhood, was to incur the risk of a ruinous action for damages. Nevertheless it w...

OUR MAILS AND POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

I OUR MAILS AND POST OFFICE. Now that we are in the middle of winter, the inconvenience created by the irregu larities in the arrival of our mails begin to be very seriously felt, especially by our business and commercial men. To this has to be added, the want of a. dis tinct and independent Post Office, for the prompt transmission and distribution of the increasing correspondence of The Mount. The continual shifting of the Post Office from one store to another is itself an evil; as in every case the persons acting as Post-masters have to be broken in to their duties, to the great detriment of our Postal arrangements. No sooner has one Postmaster become efficient in his duties, and acquainted with the dis trict and people, than the pffi.ce is handed over to another, who has to go through the same routine of mistakes, until they are initiated in the working of the de partment. Under these circumstances it j would be far better if the situation of Postmaster was a Government appoint m...

The Bench gave a decree for the amount, the complainant to pay half the ex penses; and Connor, who said he had no money, was locked up until it should be paid.

There was a notice exhibited on the door of the Court House to the following effect:-" No case will be called on, except the hearing fee has first been paid." There was a fair average attendance of suitors, witnesses, and casual spectators : but the Court was not so inconveniently crowded as on the previous occasion. The business did not commence until about eleven o'clock in the...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

LOCAL IMTELUfiEMCE. BUILDING SOCIETY.-:The great buildings "which have been in process of erection on The Mount are" either finished pr finishing. The Bank is now occupied, and a very neat, com -. Portable, and respectable structure, it is. Mitchell's great hotel now only requires the interior finishings; and it will be one of the finest buildings of its kind in the colony. The shops and dwelling-houses in the " Pall Mall" of the town are also receiving their finishing touches. There are various other buildings in progress, but they are nearly all of a private nature, with the exception .of the Presbyterian Manse, the Lutheran. Churchy &c. Now is the time, therefore,. for the working men to 'Step in, and get up a BUILDING SOCIETY fbr themselves. No: where else in the colony .could working men carry out such a scheme with, more advantage to themselves and to the town. By means of a Building Society their savings would be: safely invested,' and at the same time they would effe...

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. At Adelaide it is stated that the demand for produce, "which we noted last week has con tinued up to the present time, and very heavy purchases have been made. The farmers have delivered wheat very freely until' within the last day or two, but very little is now offering; many millers have sold {111 the flour they can deliter for a month to come, and there is hardly any to be purchased now. Should further orders arrive, prices must advance still further. The Ringdove arrived from California, bringing no wheat or flour, but merely barley and oats. She reports prices about £17 to <£17 15s. per ton for flour, and 7s. for wheat; so there is no probability of our receiving supplies from thence. At' Melbourne the markets are steady. Sales are made at an advance.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. VITAL STATISTICS. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

VITAL STATISTICS. [TO THE EDITOE.] Sir,-About a mouth ago Mr. - Kyrecn Curran, living on the banks of the Gle nelg, came to me in order to obtain advice and medicine for a daughter of his, aboilt 12 years old. "When he returned home, however, the child had died during his absence. Returning to the Mount to enquire about the holding of an inquest, an elder son came after him with the mournful message that two younger chil dren had been attacked with the same I disease. These, then, being at olice care fully looked after, recovered. The dis ease showed somewhat the symptoms of scarlatina very quickly however running into a malignant form. The mother of these children came last Sunday week to the Mount to see another daughter of about 8 years, who had been living with a farmer ever since last harvest time. The poor mother, not having seen her child for so long a time, and being glad that it had been kept out of harm's way through its absence from home, naturally caressed and fondled th...

COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 27 June 1862

IMPORTANT CASE.-The following case shows the necessity for vigilance in the families of Squatters, especially where there are young daughters. A contem porary remarks that the extension which the Legislature has given by the Local Courts Act, to the £30 jurisdiction of these Tribunals, is working with advan tage to the public-not alone in Adel aide, but in the country. A recent in stance of this beneficial tendency calls for especial notice, and the more so as the verdict of the Court is calculated to sustain the standard of morals, in the domestic circles of our middle class bush settlers ; among whom that vigilance which is consequent upon the more con centrated population of towns, is not present. The case to which we allude was an action brought by Mr. C. D. Myrick, in the Groolwa Court, against his neigh bour Mr. Edward Shipway, a Sunday school teacher in the community of the Latter-day-Saints, at Currency Creek for the seduction of his daughter. The details of the case showed ...

PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. LIMITATIONS OF ACTIONS AND j The President drew the attention of the Chief Secretary to the fact that a pro clamation appeared in the last Govern ment Gazette with respect to the confir mation of the Act of last session for the limitations of actions and suits ; if it ap peared in the Government Gazette it should also be taken notice of in the jour nals of one or both Houses, in accord ance with the terms of the Imperial Act respecting Acts reserved for the Queen's assent. The Hon. the Chief Secretary thanked the President for drawing his attention to it. He would make further enquiries and cause the matter to be brought be fore the Council. He moved that the proclamation be read.' The proclamation was then read. The President said it became a ques tion now what course ought to be taken in compliance with the terms of the Im perial Act. There were other colonial Acts reserved, and concerning which the provisions of the Imperial Act had...

HUMAN LIFE. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

HUMAN 'LIFE. (Fyom the Times.) The following eloquent passage is ex tracted from ail address delivered by the Uight Honorable W. E. Gladstone, Chancellor of the Exchequer, to the As sociation of Mechanics' Institutes at Manchester on the 23rd April last. A strain of language may sometimes he heard among us, which if taken strictly, would imply that the Almighty had abandoned the earth and the creatures. He had made, or that if He retained any ! care at all for a portion at least of those creatures while continuing, to be inhabitants of the world, it was only care how to take them out of it. It is some times said that this world is a world only of shadows and of phantoms, We may safely reply, that, whatever it is, a world of shadows and of phantoms it ca& never be; for by shadows and by phantoms we vmean vague existences which neither en dure nor act; creatures of the moment, which may touch the fancy, but which the understanding does not recognize passing illusions without h...
