THE JURIST. [To be continued weekly, under the superintendence of a Practitioner of the Supreme Court.] No. 5.—MONDAY, AUGUST 23, 1858. SUGGESTIONS FOR THE CONSOLIDATION AND AMENDMENT OF THE DISTRICT COUNCILS ACTS. It is within our charter to discuss, as from a popular platform, passing topics of public interest in their pro- gress through both Houses of Parliament; more especially such as may have in view the consolidation and 'amendment of laws.     Few of the measures of Government, which it is under- stood are to be submitted for consideration during the session upon which the Legislature is about to enter, have a more extensive field of operation than that by which it is proposed to amend and consolidate the Dis- trict Councils Acts. Tho proposed new Bill will visit and reform each of those embryo municipal institutions, with which the province is studded ; of which ere long many doubtless will boast their presiding mayors and aldermanic wards, and som...

A BAR SQUABBLE.-John Dunbar was charged with com- mitting an assault on Thomas Lawless on the previous even- ing, at the bar of Mr. Bunn's, Hindley-street. It appeared that the complainant was standing behind the bar of Mr. Bunn's hotel, when the defendant entered in front, and began talking about Calcutta and its choice localities. The com- plainant, to test the accuracy of the defendant's knowledge, questioned him about the "Loll Bazaar," "The Seven Tanks," and "Dum Dum." The defendant's intimacy with the last named renowned spot being questioned, appeared to have ex- cited his indignant contempt to such an extent that he hurled a tumbler across the counter at the head of plaintiff, and slightly cut his temple.

CAPTURE OF A SLAVER BY HER MAJESTY'S BRIG HEROX. (From the Daily News.) [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858

CAPTURE OF A SLAVER BY HER MAJESTY'S BRIG HEROX. (From the Daily ¿Tews.) Her Majesty's brig Heron weighed from Black Point Bay, on the west coast of Africa, on the 17th of April, "and ran under easy sail until off the road- stead of Loango, intending to look in to see that there was nothing there. On the afternoon of the same day a small brigantine was discovered, but the chase was discontinued on her hoisting French colours ; the ship (Heron) then stood off the land under double reeled topsails, and remained in the same position nearly all the night, as the wind fell light. On the Sunday morning, April l8, when about 25 miles to the northward of Loango, about 11-30 the man at the fore royal yard said he thought he saw a sail, which was at first made out to be a brig standing to the westward. The Heron then made all sail in chase, though the wind was very light. The vessel was then observed to tack and stand to the southward ; she could then (1.30 p.m.) be seen from the deck, and wa...

SERIOUS AFFRAY IN SIMON'S BAY. (From the Daily Neurs.) Cape of Good Hope, April 16. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858

SERIOUS AFFRAY IX SIMON'S BAY. (Prom the Daily A'eurs.) Cape of Good Hope, April 16. A serious affray took place last week between the crews of the English and Russian men-of-war al present in Simon's Bay. The following particulars have been received with respect to the cause and its result : "Tlie crews of both ships were on shore on liberty, and tlie row was originated by an English invalid soldier, who lost an arm' in the Crimea. He walked up to some of the Russian sailors, and taunted them with luv* ing robbed him of an arm ; but said he was ready to t-bew them he had one left. This led to a fight, and the English sailors standing by, seeing five or six Russians hitting their one-armed comrade, joined in .he fight. Shortly after this, another knot of belligerents were observed hustling each other, but whether this arose out of the same circumstance is not known. A Russian officer attempted to interfere, with a liew to protect an Englishman who wos attacked liya lot of Russians; ...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858

NEW SOUTH WALES. STATE OF THE INTERIOR.-The following will give some idea of the state of the interior, and of the losses sustained during the last season by dealers in cattle for the Victoria market. Some few weeks since, a. Mr. Gerard, of Walcha, in New England, purchased of a Mr. Niveson, of the same place, six hundred head of cattle, with which he started for the Melbourne market. The cattle were at this time in capital condition, and continued so until they reached the Macquarie, when from the scarcity of feed between there and the Lachlan,   they became so reduced that, on reaching Mr. Owen's station on the Lachlan, there were but 110 of them left alive, the others having died on the road from sheer starvation. The horses used by the stockmen, to the number of sixteen, also shared the same fate. The proprietor was, consequently, obliged to sell ninety-eight head at £2 a-piece, and the remaining twelve, which were bullocks, at £4 an-piece. The horses were valued at...

THE FEMALE UEETJGE.-We have been kindly favoured by the Rev. A. R. Russell, with particulars of a meeting of the Committee of tho South Australian Female Refuge, which was held ou Friday last, at tho office of the Board of Education. The Lord Bishop, Archdeacon Woodcock, the Rev. A. R. Russell, and Mr. Hawkes, were the only members present. The business disposed of was the reading of a letter from Mr. Tomkin- son, drawing attention to the large expenditure con- nected with the society, without results, which the fact of only one inmate at the present time clearly exhibited. A (iiscussiou of a conversational character took place on the letter, when the opinion was expressed that the Asylum had proved a failure for useful purposes, and tluit not owing to any defect in the plan, but solely to the publicity which had attendocl it, and the reluctance which unfortunate girls naturally had to seek refuge in an establishment, their simple connection with wh'ch, was a confession of their tra...

The Adverti[?]er. ADELAIDE: MONDAY, AUGUST 23, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 August 1858

?\)Î %kmïmx. ADELAIDE : MONDAY, AUGUST 23, 1858. WE hare received a letter from Mr. Geo. E. Hamilton, C.E., which we shall be fully justified in transferring to the most prominent part of our paper. The letter, which we shall presently in- troduce to our readers, is as thorough a condem- nation of the system at present pursued with respect to our public worts, as the most insatiable grievance-hunter could desire. And yet, strange to say, this letter which so powerfully supports all we have said, and would support more than we have said, in reference to the malpractices of contractors, commences with a lamentation over our indiscriminate and too sweeping censures Whether our censures were stronger than facts justified, or whether Mr. Hamilton's censures are less sweeping than our own, the public shall be left to determine. Perhaps, however, as the matter under consideration is of great importance, it may not be amiss to begin at the beginning, and allow our readers to judge of the wh...

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

INDIAN RELIEF FUND. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-You may remember that some months since an amateur performance was given at the Victoria Theatre, for the benefit of the Indian Relief Fund. The Theatre was patronised on the occasion by His Excellency the Governor-in-Chief, the prices of admission were raised, the house was crowded in every part, and I believe the precise sum realised was ¿208 ; it certainly exceeded £200. The avowed object in view induced many to attend who would not otherwise have been present. They con- tributed their money upon the faith that the announce- ment in the bills, to the effect that the proceeds of the performance would be handed over to the Indian Relief Fund, would be rigidly adhered to. Such being the case, they have been not a little astonished to learn, within the last few days, that the amount handed over to the Indian Relief Fund had been only £50 ! and that the remainder, or upwards of £150, had been absorbed in expenses, the most promi...
