TEATREE GULLY.—OPENING OF THE CUTTING THROUGH THE HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 24 August 1858

TEATREE GULLY.-OPENING OF THE CUTTING THROUGH THE HILLS, The neighbourhood of Teatree Gully presented, yesterday, by fur the'most animated and picturesque appearance it has ever yet worn. The announcement that the great cutting through the Hills would that day be opened to the public, had tlie effect of drawing together a" very large and gay partv. At an early hour in the forenoon ItouiiseveiTs four-in-hand was drawn up in front of Green's Exchange, and was speedily taken possession of by the Commissioner of Public Works", the Surveyor-General, and various gentlemen con- nected with that department of the Government service, more especially concerned in the day's proceedings. It was also rumoured that His Kxeellency the Governor-in-Chief intended to honour the occasion by heading the calvacade, but in this expectation "hope told a flattering tale," not destined to be realised.

We may take it for granted that the poor will never cease out of the land, and Ave may as un- hesitatingly conclude that the poor Avili always be a charge upon the national bounty. PoArerty and charity cannot be kept far apart ; cannot be if Christianity is belieA-ed in ; cannot be if humanity is acknowledged, i'et, though to re- lieve the fatherless and avícIoav is a luxury as well as a duty ; though mercy blesses him that giA'es as Avell as him that takes ; the duty and de. light of doing good are often rendered matters of no small perplexity and dissatisfaction. To dis- criminate between the deserving and the unde- serving is frequently a work of difficulty ; to know exactly when charity is well-applied and when it is mis-applied, presupposes a faculty of discernment that few possess even to one-half the extent required. We haA-e many poor in South Australia, not- withstanding the knoAvn and acknowledged advantages of our adopted home. We have not, indeed, all the elements that g...

"Messes. Uren, Dunbak, and the Shoe- makers.-We very much regret that the dispute be- tween the journeymen shoemakers and some of the masters should have led to such accusations as have re- cently 'appeared in print. Had the notice so strongly reflecting upon Messrs. Uren and Dunbar fallen into our hands before publication, we should certainly not have allowed it to appear. Respectable tradesmen ought not to be assailed in a reckless aud indefensible manner, and wa advise the authors of the advertisement referred to to dosist from their present mode of attack. Even' journey- man tradesman has his rights, but employers have their rights too. and Mr. Uren has shown by public advertise- ment that what was stated of him was not correct. We are quite sure that the less of this mode of Avarfare the better it will be for all parties, and wo very much regret having been made the means of disseminating a state- ment which does not appear to have anv foundation in fact.

THE ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH EXPERI- MENTAL EXPEDITION. [From the Dully Xrics.] Plymouth, Friday, June 4.

Tlie weather was magnificently fine, and beyond the steady SAvell which always rolls off the western shores ol'Great Britain, the sea was perfectly calm. After passing the Eddystone lighthouse, the squadron changed their course, and steered in a westerly direction, keeping along the coast of Cornwall until the Lizard lights had been passed, when th...

The Ad[?]ertiser. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, AUGUST 24, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 24 August 1858

?!}£- Ikdiw. ADELAIDE : TUESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1858. The Teatree Gully Cutting was opened yester- day, and we congratulate the settlers of the "North-Eastern districts upon now having an available line of communication between their respective farms and the Adelaide markets. We hope also that Ave may congratulate the citizens of Adelaide ; for in proportion as safe, easy, and cheap means of transit are afforded to the pro- ducer, in that proportion ought the price of pro- visions to be lowered to the consumer. The sentiment we now take the liberty of enunciating before the whole colony was well expressed at the meeting by Mr. Duffield, who reminded the farmers then present that in saving 10s. per ton upon tlie cost of carriage they were enabled to sell so much cheaper without any diminution of their own profits. Mr. Duffield takes sound and statesman-like views of this question, when he affirms ihat the great object of fanners should be to sell at the lowest prices that will re- munera...

ANew Application of the Electkic Telegraph. -A novel method of delivering bonded goods has been introduced at the London Custom-house. Until last year the Crown was in all cases the only ware house-keeper for tobacco and cigars. The result was a very large annual expense, and recently the practice has been abolished, the warehousing of tobacco being thrown open to competition under regulations similar to those in the case of all other goods. Previously the great bidk of the tobacco brought to the port of London was warehoused in the London Docks ; but on the altered system coming into operation, a very large proportion was transferred to the Victoria Docks, cheaper rates being the great inducement. The Victoria Docks, however, OAving to their distance, were often found very inconvenient Avhen it was neces- sary to clear tobacco at a short notice. If an order was issued at 3 p.m. from the Custom-house for tlie delivery of a quantity it was scarcely possible to get it away on the same...

DEATH OF A COMPANION OF CAPTAIN FLINDERS. [From the Times, June 17.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 24 August 1858

DEATH OF A COMPANION OF CAPTAIN FLINDERS. [From the Times, June 17.] In our obituary of Saturday last occurs the name of one of those luminaries of science whose modest and retiring worth was little known to the general public, but who was all the more highly appreciated in those scientific circles of which he was so distinguished an ornament. The late Robert Brown was the son of a Scottish Episcopalian clergyman, and was born at Mon- trose on the 21st December, 1773. His acade- mical education was acquired first at Marischal College, Aberdeen, and subsequently at the University of Edinburgh, where he completed his medical studies in 1795, and in the same year accompanied a Scottish Fencible Regiment, in the double capacity of ensign and assistant surgeon, to Ireland. His intense love and pecu- liar aptitude for botanical study had already developed itself, and recommended him to the notice of Sir Joseph Banks, who continued through life his sincere and ardent friend. On Sir Joseph'...
