MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Saturday, August 21. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858
MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Saturday, August 21. The usual quiet of the half holiday, kept on Satur- day, has prevailed everywhere, and we can notice no wholesale business as having been transacted. Millers and ether buyers of wheat have reduced their price to 7s. 3d., and at this reduction some sellers have come forward. There are no transactions to record in flour, and buyers still hold back, but we hear of no quantity pressing upon the market. The clearances for Melbourne and Geelong this week embrace about 1,000 tons of flour and wheat. Bran continues at Is. 7d. WHEAT AND FLOUR 3ÍARKET.

INSOLVENCY COURT. SATURDAY, AUGUST 21. [Before Mr. Commissioner Manu.] JAMES ALLEN, printer and publisher, attended pursuant to notice, supported by Mr. M. Smith. Mr. John Brown, acountant, mid Captain Finnis, an op- posing creditor, were also present. The Commissioner read the following decision :-In this case the accountant's report shows liabilities to the extent of 2,865/ 15s lOd ; the assets amount to 2,039/ 9s 5d, and there is a consequent deficiency of 82BZ Cs 5d. As connected with the grounds of opposition it becomes a material point to ascertain at what time the insolvent must have been aware that he was unable to pay his creditors in full. According to the evidence of Mr. Curtis, an opposing creditor (formerly in the employ of the insolvent) the latter expressed his knowledge of his embarrassments as early as January 1858 ; and Curtis states that in May Mr. Allen was aware that his situation was hope- less. The insolvent altogether denies that he used the ex- pressions att...

Z!\ iîw ZEALAND.-We have been favoured witli sight of a private letter recently received from New Zealand, in which sad forebodings are indulged in relative to the attitude of the native tribes. It appears that the aboriginals are mustering round helson in great forcp, and that, noone can tell for \\ hat reason. Ajj^cal news- paper reminds the settlers of Cawnpóreríind tells them to " beware." We should think, however, that there is really no danger ; or, at least, none to meet which the local Government would not be, at any moment, fully prepared.

NUTRITIOUSNESS OF HORSEFLESH. [From Blackwood's Magazine, for May.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858
NTJTKITIOTJSNESS OF HOHSEFLESH. [From Blackwood's Magazine, for May.] A Frenchman was one day blandly remonstrating against the supercilious scorn expressed by English- men for the beef of France, which he, for his part, did not find so inferior to tliat of England. " I have been two times in England," he remarked, but I neverefind tile bif so supérieur to ours. I lind it vary conveenieut that they bring it yon on leetle pieces of stick, for one penny, but I do not find the bif supérieur." On hearing this, the Englishman, red with astonishment, exclaimed, " Good God, Sir, you have been eating cat's meat." It is very true, he had been eating cat's meat : but had he not at the same time been eating meat as succulent, savoury, and wholesome as the marbled beef of which the Briton is so proud ? Let the reso- nant shouts of laughter subside a little, and while you are wiping the tears from your eyes, listen to the very serious exposition we shall make of the agreeable and nutritive quali...
