POLICE COURT. ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, JULY 14. [Before Mr. Beddome, S.M.; Mr. Tomkinson, J.P.; and Mr. Smith, J.P.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858
POLICE COURT. ADELAIDE : WEDNESDAY, JULY 14. [Before Mr. Beddome, S.M. ; Mr. Tomkinson, J.P. ; and Mr. Smith, J.P.] DRUNKENNESS.-Sarah Clark was charged with having been dead drunk in Currie-street on the pre- vious day. She pleaded guilty, but begged hard for forgiveness, as she had not the means of meeting a fine. The Bench regarding her as incorrigible, in- flicted a penalty of live shillings.-John Harding was charged with a similar offence.-He pleaded guilty, and was ordered to pay a fine of ten shillings.-Henry Denny, a son of the ocean, declined to admit that he had been decidedly drunk, but admitted that he was none the better, and perhaps a little the worse, for what he had taken ; to use his own expression, " he was not in ballast trim, or he could have got on right enough." He was ordered to enrich the coffers of Her Majesty to the extent of five shillings. NEIGHBOURS' QUARRELS. - Henry Atkins was charged with violently assaulting John Cavenagh, his next door neighbour, in...
LOCAL COURTS. ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, JULY 14. [Before Mr. C. Mann, Mr. S. Beddome, the Mayor, and Mr. J. H. Nicholls.] NITSCHKE V. BALDWIN. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 15 July 1858
LOCAL COURTS. ADELAIDE : WEDNESDAY, JULY 14. [Before Mr. C. Mann, Mr. S. Beddome, the Mayor, and Mr. J. H. Nicholls.] NITSCHKE V. BALDWIN. Mr. Carter appeared for the plaintiff; the defen- &nbsp; dant conducted his own case. The action was brought for the sum of £5 for a lantern and glass supplied to the defendant. The defendant paid into Court the sum of £3 12s., and pleaded not indebted for the remainder. It appeared that there had been former dealings between the par- ties, upon which it was contended on the one side that there was a balance remaining due to the plain- tiff, and on the other that the glass, &c, charged for in the particulars of demand was agreed to be supplied without charge. The Court gave a verdict for 15s., being half the amount in dispute, each party to pay his own costs, GREEN V. CONWAY. For £1 4s. 2d., balance due upon contract for laying certain paving in Union-street, and Rundle-street, and work and labour performed. &nbsp; The pla...

LOCAL COURTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 16 July 1858
LOCAL COURTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE. ADVERTISER. Sir-Having noticed an article in the Register of the 12th inst., headed as above. I hope you will allow me a corner in your journal for a few remarks, " Fair Fees," as he styles himself, has made some gross mistakes or mistatements in his correspondence with that journal, as he proves himself, or that he is not only more ignorant than those he pretends to pity ; but is evidently the schoolmaster abroad, as he well knows no such charges have been made but by himself in his district, and which he will shortly have an opportunity of proving. Not thinking it worth, while taking up more of your valuable time, for the contradiction of so poor an attempt to traduce the character of men who have not an opportunity of deserving those remarks. I am, Sir. &c, SHEPHENSON H. SCAIFE, Clerk of the Angaston Local Court. Angaston, 13th July 1858.
The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 16 July 1858
?\)t Ikmími ADELAIDE .- FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1858. The news from Europe is not of a rery stirin g character, but it contains a few paragraphs of interest. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has produced his budget, showing that, although the late crisis had greatly impaired the national finances, confidence was so far restored that the last three months receipts from Customs, Excise. and Stamps, had transformed a deficit of £760,000 into an income of £1,100,000. The result of the right, lion, gentlemen's figures proved, however, that the expenditure of the year amounted to nearly four millions more than the income. To meet this short-coming he proposes to appro- priate that portion of the revenue hitherto set aside as a sinking fund for the reduction of the national debt ; to abolish the differential duties on Irish and British spirit«, and to put a penny duty on bankers' cheques. Anticipating the suggestion of another method of meeting the de- ficiency he answered before hand, by declar- ...
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 16 July 1858
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVEETISEB. Sir-Though perceiving in Mr. Torrens's Real Property Act some defects requiring amendment, and omisc-ions to be supplied, I am compelled to give ex- pression to my feelings of astonishment at the nume- rous m's -epresentations which have of late been cir cidatcd respecting that measure. The Idler of your correspondent "H. B. T. S.," which appeare:! in your paper of this day, surpasses all that preceded it hi boldly misstating facts. He gays :-" There are no clauses in the Act that are in any way applicable to land alienated from the Crown after the l^t July. The clauses of the Act are only ap- plicable to lands the grants of which have been signed on or before» the 1st July." Contrast this statement with the Act itself. Clause 13. "AU lands alienated from the Crown alter the 1st clay of July, 1858, shaU be sub- ject to the provisions of tliis Act." Clause 86. " When hinds under the operation of this Act is in- tended to be disp...

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, 15th July, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 16 July 1858
MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, 15th July, 1858. Tile absence of any fresh arrival of either orders or market intelligence from Melbourne and Sydney, for 10 days previous to the Admella'» arrival this morn- ing, and the over-due English mail still remaining out, has caused a complete dearth of interest in commercial circles ; and the chief topic of conversation on 'Change has boen the straitened state of money matters. It is currently reported that so indisposed are the B.inks at the present moment to grant the usual facilities for discount to their customers, that several heavy trans- actions in discounting have been done privately by such as have money at their command, independent of Bank accommodation. Should the narrow limit the Banks have lately put upon discounts for short dated paper be continued, great inconvenience must necessarily ensue to trade in all its branches, rendering, as this restricted movement doe3, the most undeniable bills given for trade purposes inconvertible, and...

Night Robberies.-The Crown Steam Flour Mill, at the cast of Victoria-square, and Mr. Elliott's mill, Halifax-street, were last night entered by thieves, but they were most signally disappointed, as they did not find a shilling in either of the places.

HAZARDOUS MANUFACTORIES IN THE CITY. During the sitting of the Mayor's Court yesterday Mr. Parker drew the attention of the Bench to the existence of a camphine manufactory within the city. Camphine is well-known to be a highly combustible ma- terial and extremely volatile ; found some times to explode by the mere passing of a flame above the vessel containing it : loss of life has in several instances ensued through the bursting of camphine lamps, in cautiously lighted. The circumstance of the manu- facture of this article in the city calls for special at- tention. Such an establishment should come under the same prohibition as the powdermills and the works of lucifer match, and firework makers. Mr. Parker's re- mark, no doubt, had allusion to the late fire near the, Lord Raglan Hotel, which originated in a factory of this kind. Premises of this description should be re- moved to a situation where an accident destructive to themselves might not also prove dangerous to their neighbo...

To ouït E/ea-dehs.-Wo exceedingly regret that, from unavoidable circumstances, we were only able only able yesterday to publish a small portion of the news per Admella. Further explanation would be useless : the difficulties that besetus yesterday morning will not occur again. The newspapers per Admella vv ere not delivered until about half past 3 a.m., although, tinder ordinary circum- stances*, time enough eoidd even then remain for the publication of a considerable quantity of matter. We publish to-day, letters from two cor- responden! s in Victoria; but as they unfortunately put their letters into tho mail bags, instead of sending them by jrrivafce hand, we only received them by the usual post delivery, after our paper was published.
