on FRIDAY; AUGUST 19, 1870. SOUTH AUSTRALIA is evidently en tering upon a distinct phase of her existence as a Colony. Hitherto 'tlie' public funds have been lavishly ex pended* upon works of an unproductive character. Past Governments seem to have been afflicted with a kind of mania for the erection of costly buildino-s. Attention IRIS been paid more to the ornamental that the useful. Whether this has resulted from, a sincere desire1 to beautify the capita, or whether the efforts of the various Governments have been conducted in this direction ,.by motives of a mercenary nature, we will not attempt to say* : What we assert is that the public buildings in and.. around Adelaide are at least a generation in advance of Our require-, ments, and that the public money has' been spent in their erection to the great detriment of other parts of the country.
