ALDINGA ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 21 August 1858

ALDINGA ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. The Aldinga Ploughing Match was held on Thursday last in Mr. Dunstan's Sections, situated at the south- western corner of the district, and within a very short distance of the sea-beach. The weather was not favour- able, though much more so than was anticipated from the previous night, when there was a heavier fall of rain than had been known in the district for a considerable time previously. There was a much better attendance, both of competitors and spectators, than could under the cir- cumstances have been expected, and amongst the latter were a number of the fair sex, who stood the occasional showers which fell during the day most womanfully. Con- siderable dissatisfaction was expressed at the locality selected by the Committee for the match, which was not only at the extreme end of the district, and the land being also extremely heavy, and in many parts stony ; independently of which it was uneven, so that the best ploughing in the world would, ...

The criminal statistics of South Australia show a very gratifying diminution in the number of offences committed in the colony. We have before us several documents bearing upon this subject, from which the" conclusion we have arrived at is indubitably established. There are two considerations that might lead to the expec- tation that police convictions would have largely increased, namely, the accessions to our popula- tion, and the new statutable offences created by the fresh Acts of each session. Still, we find that convictions do not increase, and that offences of more serious character are less numerous than they were when the population was smaller. The following table, which we have compiled for the purpose, will show the number of felony cases convicted at the Supreme Court of this province since the year 1850 : Popu- lation. Felonies. Year. Against the person Against property. Miscella- neous. Total. 1850 63,700 ii 61 8 80 1861 C0,53S 'JO «3 11 96 1852 68.CU3 12 22 1 35 1853...

IRISH NEWS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 21 August 1858

IRISH NEWS. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-The Melbourne Argus complains bitterly when any geographical error respecting the Australian colonies occurs in the Times, and when the latter publication appears in South Australia, if no allusion is made to Adelaide, or to those great leader speci-, wens, the Register and Ohserver, more bitter still are j the animadversions cast on the Times by thoso journals. The matter I want to bring under your notice is the great paucity of Irish intelligence given in the papers. France, Russia, Sardinia, &e., occupy great space, but Ireland is forgotten apparently. Now, there are many important open questions in« teresting to Irishmen-the Viceroyalty; whether a Secretary of State is to be substituted for a Lord Lieutenant ; the recent Collège riots with the Dublin police ; the visit or tour of "the Prince of Wales, and his not having kissed the Blarney Stone ; Maynooth Grant, cum mill is aliis. There is a sprinkling of Irish in tins col...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 21 August 1858

TO COHRESPONDläXTS. 'Well-wisher,-The queries yon propose may form the grouud-work of a question in Parliament,-but as we have said before, they cannot, in their present form, be discussed editorially. If there are any people so silly as to think we are " tied " because we refuse to publish highly libellous matter upon anonymous authority, all we can 'say is, we do not want the acquaintance of such people. Stepüen S. Vale.-Under what signature did you write? Anti-Queen-Joan.-Most certainly no name was attached to your letter ; it was the absence of a name that in part caused .us to hesitate. But there was another reason. We do not think that the attack upon our contemporary, and in reference to which the pseudonyme was chosen, had the remotest con- nection with the squatting. Anti-Quceu-.loan writes to us abusing the Jlerfister, and then abuses us for not inserting it. In reference to'the letter itself, it is impossible we can repro- duce it, for having disposed of the subject the M...

ECHUNGA PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 21 August 1858

ECHUNGA PLOUGHING MATCH. Though a wet, cold, and dreary day, the attendance at this revival of the Echunga Ploughing Matches was nume- rous and respectable. For seven years past the annual match of this district has, for some unaccountable reason, been allowed to lapse ; this year, however, was destined   to see better things. Echunga was not to be left behind all othor districts in the onward march of agricultural pro- gression, and so resulted the match of 1858. A few farmers having met at the Hagen Arms, carno to the determination of gettisg up-or, rather, reviving this annual exhibition. A committee was appointed, consisting of Mr. William Bussell (Chairman), Messrs. James Sutton, Thomas Morton, George Sparks, Joseph Pepper, James Smith, F. R. Hunt. Henry Linn, Charles Masters, and William Mincham as Honorary Secretary. The Committee met weekly, and appealed to the public, which appeal has been responded to in a most liberal manner.

MR. T. P. HILL'S RESIGNATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir - In retiring from the General Registry Offica, in which department I have officiated for upwards of five years, I wish to state, through your columns, that I have felt myself compelled to take this step, in conse-   quence of the overbearing and offensive martinetism of the gentleman who, within the last month, has received that appointment which the Registrar-General led me to expect I should obtain. The Deputy-Registrar-General of Deeds knows full well - the profession know full well, that the most re- sponsible work of the department - work in which the Chief Officer has hitherto invariably participated - I mean the current registration-has been entirely thrust upon 'my shoulders. That work has been psrformed with as much diligence, expedition, and accuracy as could pos- sibly be brought to bear upon it. The Deputy-Reghtrar Genoral of Deeds is well aware of this fact, and bad he beeif animated by any...

THE CORPORATION. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir -I fervently hope that the citizens \\ ill set their faces as a flint against the proposal of the Coipoi.ition to borrow £30,000 for the erection of a Town Hall. What I occasion ha\ ewe for such an edifice at present ? How is it to be approached? If any alderman 01 councillor lived, like mjself, on South-teirace, he would be ashamed to enter so splendid a building, after passing through the muddy street, without footpath which leads from South terrace to Victoria-square. Let not the ratepaj ei s sanc- tion «ueh an expenditure until the stieets a o scavenged and drained, and the footpaths aie made. I suppose the next proposition will be tor the citizens to find íobesfor the aldermen and councillors, and a state caí i îagc and city baige for the Major. Ratepayers, be on the aleit !

INSOLVENCY. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858

INSOLVENCY. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-The New Insolvent Act does not give to the Commissioner a power to adjourn si ne die; but practically the power exists, because the Commissioner is in the habit of taking time to consider his judgment, and no one can tell when it will be given. Lord Eldon used to adopt the same course so uniformly, that it was said of him that ho had to consult Lady Eldon before he gave a decision, I am, Sir, &c, DISPATCH. Adelaide, August ISth, 1858.

FEES AT CHURCH. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858

FEES AT CHURCH. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-In your issue of yesterday, I observe a letter signed " A* Thorough Noncon," in which he attacks rather I vigorously a correspondent of the 10th, "A Wesleyan." " A Thorough Noncon" must certainly have paid very little attention to the letter as it appears in your columns, or he would not have made the gross mistake he has done by expressing, as his opinion, that if the Young Men's Christian Association cannot be supported on the voluntary principle, the sooner it becomes defunct the better. Now, the whole tenor of " A Wesleyan's letter went to show that such a society should be formed ; that we were far behind our neighbours in not forming one ; and that Mr. Binney, by the proposed lecture, would become the father of it. This " Noncon" will perceive if he will read the letter in question more attentively. Now, Sir, although there is a society in existence, yet it is not out of funds, neither is it the intention of its members to a...

THE VICTORIA THEATRE.-The hopes which were expressed a short time since of the Theatre being opened in a week or two for a short season, with addi- tions to the old company and under the old management are not likely to be realised in consequence of differences I amongst the company, as to the allotment of shares of the proceeds. It is probable, however, that the Theatre mav be opened under now management, the Nelson family remaining, assisted by a ballet company including Madame Strebinger. THE IMPOUNDING ACT.-A suggestion has been made to us in connection with the new Impounding Act, bo introduced during the ensuing session of Parliament, which we throw out for the consideration I of our readers. It is that parties impounding cattle shall be required to swear to the actual damage done, and that a falso statement in this respect shall be deemed a mis- demeanour.
