THE SEBASTOPOL TROPHIES.-We see, from the Hobart Town Mercury, that intelligence has reached the Government of Tasmania of the intention of Her Majesty's Government to pre- sent the former with two of the guns captured at Sebastopol. AVe believe that a polite request wras long since forwarded from Adelaide for a similar mark of recognition, and it would be instructive to know why Tasmania can have two of the coveted trophies, and South Australia not one.

HOW OUR PlTBLTC WORKS ARE CONSTRUCTED. -In the last Report of the Waterworks Com- missioners, we find the following paragraph : " On examining the foundations which had been ex- posed by the removal of the ashlar facing, they found that the undercourse, instead of being sunk into the solid rock, as provided for in the specification, rested on spawls inserted between the natural surface of the rock and the lower course. They thought it most probable that the weir would not have sustained the injuries men- tioned had the work been carried out according to speci- fication, and they could not too strongly reprobate the conduct of the Clerk of the Works, under whose elia ige the weir was constructed, in allowing one of the most important parts of the structure to be built in a manner so utterly at variance from the specification." This is the old story. Whether road contracts, jetty contracts, pier contracts, or contracts of any other kind, it is upon record that the public are systemati...

THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 August 1858

THE BEAL PROPERTY ACT. To the Editor of the ADVi*nnsi;K. Sir-Upon the Registrar-General, by the Real Property Act, arc conferred judicial powers ol' a verv* important and unusual character. In a secret court, willi closed doors, in the absence of parties interested in the result, often without affording those parties an opportunity ol' interfering in any way to protect their properly, this functionary, sometimes alone, sometimes willi the assistance of his Lands Titles Com- missioners, can enquire in'o titles, decirlo on the rights of parties, and, by his cevtiii. uti1, confer an indefensibie title to lund upon i.n «, to the exclusion of all others in- terested. But unusual anil dangerous as aro the powers of this secret tribunal, thev* would sink into insignificance as compared with an enactment which should enable am* one to be judge in his own cause. To con 1er a power like this, would bo to sat aside a principle of English law firmlj* established, and always jealously maintained...

THE POSTAL SERVICE.-We yesterday ex- plained to our readers the ruinous position in which, even at the close of last year, the Euro- pean and Australian Royal Mail Company were placed, and the impossibility of its continuing much longer in existence. We have, since making that statement, been favoured with a copy of a dispatch received bj- His Excellency Sir Richard MacDonuell, stating that the wind- ing up of the Company is to be carried into effect immediately, and that Her Majesty's Government will take steps to arrange with the Boyal Mail Steam Company, or with some other Company, for supplying temporarily the postal service to Australia, until fresh tenders can be obtained and a new contract entered into. This is all very satisfactory as far as it goes, and after our long experience of postal miseries, but we have little hope in new contracts, and would again and earnestly recommend that overtures be made by our local Government to the Peninsula and Oriental Company with a view...

In our impression of Monday we published a description of Barnet's new multifarious har- vesting machine, and we accompanied the state- ment, with a few remarks expressive of our gratification at the prospect of still further improvements being effected in our agricultural machinery. The article in question has drawn forth the following reply from Mr. James Cumming, to which we willingly give the same prominence in our columns that we gave to the description of the new invention. "TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. "Sir-The second article in your paper of to-day con- tains several statements regarding Barnet's Reaping Machine, which "are calculated very much to mislead, asit has evidently been written under the conviction that the machine has done or will do the work proposed to he accomplished by it. " In the first place I would mention that Mr. Barnet has never tried his machine except in a small model, the wheels of which were formed to go round. This I presume I may state publicly...

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 19, 1858 [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 August 1858

Clje Ikertkr. ADELAIDE : THURSDAY, AUGUST 19, 1858 THE Government liave given a conditional pro- mise to guarantee the proposed loan of £30,000, for erecting the new Corporation buildings. The condition is, that the Bill authorising the raising of the loan, shall contain a clause empowering the Government to levy (if necessary) a special tax upon city property, to meet the whole of the charges of interest and liquidation ; and connected with this condition is an '* assumption," namely, that the plan of the proposed new buildings, and the principle upon which tbe funds are to lie raised, meet with the concurrence of the citizens. We are not surprised that the Ministry should thus take precautions against assuming a direct responsibility without material guarantees, but at the same time the terms of their consent open tip a rather knotty question. Passing over the implied doubt as to the rental of the l intended new buildings being sufficient to meet all the demands arising out of the...
