LIMSAL NEWS. CiTT OF ADELAIDE-Rob« Ward.-This Flection was held yesterday under the presi- dency of Alderman Solomon. The Assessors were Messrs J. A. Fitzgerald and W. A. Hughes, and the Clerk, Mr F. Veysey, the whole being appointed by the Mayor. The votes for Mr Joseph Hall, were. 43 Mr Matthew Smith . 39 Majority for Mr Hall . 4 Mr Hall was accordingly elected. Alderman for Robe Ward. A protest was lodged by Mr George Donaldson, that a sufficient description was not in some cases given THE BULLION ACT.-We have been a good deal amused by an article from " An Old Hand" in the limes, respecting the above Act. It is a cold-blooded sneer from be- ginning to end. It praises the Gold Act «a beneficial, abuses the Governor for passing it, and then abuses the Governor for not agreeing to pass another to suit the Banks the maurene they require it. Verily, u Old Hand," you are consistent in your idiosyncrasy. ERRATUM:-Ina article headed '"The Em- peror of Russia and the Frenen President," i...
THE "REGISTER" AND THE BULLION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 1 July 1852
THE "REGISTER" AND THE BULLION ACT. A. CELEBRATED Spartan, on being com- plimented for the terse brevity of a des- patch, said, "If I had had more time I would have made it shorter." If the old gentleman in question was right, we are of opinion that our contemporary ii generally in a hurry, and that he must have been in very great haste when ho assaulted our little article on the Bullion Act. We con- fess we have seldom seen such a conglomera- tion of words as our contemporary has used, heaped together with so little pur- pose. He commences by a perfectly unfounded charge against ourselves, to the effect that we advise a repudiation of the Bullion Act. All that we shall say is that this is a good commercial hit, because it may tend to prejudioo a rival in. the. opinion of a large class of the colonists. Our sole rea- son for mentioning as a feasible scheme the refusal of ingots was that the Act is per- missive, and that therefore there could be no repudiation. Our hasty contemporary...

The Morning Chronicle. Adelaide: Thursday, July 1, 1852. NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 1 July 1852
j - ! Adelaide : Thursdi-/. Judy 1, 1652. ! NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. No one can properly estimate the effect, of the recent gold disco TC ries in the neigh ? bouriag colonies upon the public opinion in England, without feeling that some ' powerful attraction towards this colony is j j just now especially needed to counter- balance the fancied superiority resulting ! from the possession of auriferous deposits. We say ufancied superiority," because we believe that the balance of benefit will ultimately be found on the 6ide of the dis- trict that does not produce gold. But it cannot be denied that this view is not the popular one, and that the British mind is at this time set with intense interest upon the dependencies of Victoria and New South Wales, while South A ustralia is in danger of being forgotten. The tide of traffic and emigration is likely to be diverted from our ports to enrich Sydney and Melbourne. The wealth of capitalists and the energies I of toil will be concentrated ...

VICTO RI Ar WESLEYAN -Pursuant to previous an- nouncement a tea meeting, in connection with the Wesleyans at Collingwood, was held on Thursday evening last, in their new chapel, in Brunswick-street, on which, occa- sion, notwithstanding the darkness of the evening, and the boisterousness of the wea- ther, there was a goodly number present, nearly the whole of the seats at the tables being occupied. Several friends were there from Melbourne, and from Richmond. The the tea being over, the Revs. Messrs. But- ters and Harcourt, and several ether gen- tlemen, addressed the meeting on the ob- ject for which it had been convened^ and the greatest harmony and good feeüns ch»T racterized the whole of the proc^dtngs.

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 1 July 1852
EXTRACTS. EXPLOSION OF A GUNPOWDER, MAGA- ZINE.—The following details of the explo- sion of the gunpowder magazine, near Stockholm, have been received : —The &nbsp; shocks were so violent that they shook the earth ; and in several streets broke the windows, and threw open the doors, or cast them off their binges; whilst in others pedestrians and even horses were thrown down. The population at first thought there was an earthquake, and rushed to the public squares and open places. The terror only ceased when it was announced by placards that the powder magazine had blown up. The magazine was the largest in all Sweden, and was situated at half a league from the capital. All that remains of it aro some little heaps of ruins. The forest of Liddoc, near which it stood, was ravaged ; trees, of several centuries growth and large size, were torn up, and carried several hundred yards. A great quantity of the ruius of the magazine fell on the Lake of Liddoc, and broke the ice. Some po...
MEMS FROM THE MOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 1 July 1852
MEMS FROM THE MOUNT. BENDIGO.--- I promised by last post to afford your readers a clear and distinct idea of what Bendigo and its New Diggings really are. I shall now describe the state of society, as I found it there ; and, in so doing, I can say, I travelled from Forest Creek and back again, as well as the best part of Bendigo, alone, with- out let or hindrance, and found all very civil, hospitable, and orderly; the various dark deeds of past times, when Bendigo was not so crowded, were told, and the only serious scrim- mage I was informed of that occurred lately, &nbsp; I was at Eagle Hawk Gully. Two men had quarrelled about the boundary of their respec- tive holes or claims, when, after along wrang- ling, one of them proposed amicable terms, and to shake hands over it ; the other agreed to the proposal, and held forth his hand, but, no sooner had he done so, than the other rushed him treacherously with a long knife concealed under his waist, inflicting a most dangerous w...
