TRANSPORTATION. (From the London Correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald.) London, September 9, 1852. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 17 January 1853
TRANSPORTATION. (From the London Correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald.) London. September 9. 1852. The usual reporte from the Inspectors of Prisons have been subjected to the usual ob- servations of our daily press ; but the París Constitutionnel has now deemed the subject &nbsp; deserving of a long article, apropos to the changes which are in course of progress in the French penal system. From a recent number of the leading journal of the French capital I quote the following:— &nbsp; "The Englisb Government bas renoun- ced the practice of the immediate transpor- tation of criminals. In place of throwing them, suddenly and in masses, into the colonies, into which they only import the vices and corruption of the mother coun- try, they are now subjected, in England itself, to a detention which is regarded as a period of probation, during which they are prepared for a return to good courses, &nbsp; and before the expiration of which they cannot be transpor...

LATEST FROM AMERICA. &nbsp; The Melbourne Morning Herald says:— "We have New York papers to the 18th Sep- &nbsp; tember, being five days later than our former dates. A most disgraceful attempt had been made to interrupt the "Grand Serenade" of Madame Sontag. A fierce mob collected in the house, the police interfered, received a &nbsp; few knocks for their pains, the musicians were beset, their instruments broken to pieces, and their music torn up. The wind-up was the postponement of the entertainment, the clear- ing of the house by the chief of police, the ex- tinguishing of the lights, and the precipitate retirement of Madame Sontag. The subject of the New York World's Fair had been brought before the Executive Com- mittee of State Agricultural Society at Utica, and a Committee was appointed to confer with the New York Directors. The fifth anniversary of the entrance of the American army into Mexico was celebrated with all the honours. The Fourth of July was...

The Morning Chranicle. "This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." —Euripides. Adelaide: Monday, January 17, 1853. THE MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 17 January 1853
" This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." -- Euripides. Adelaide ; Monday, January 17, 1853. THE MUNICIPAL CORPORATION. WE are glad to see that the Corporation has decided upon accepting the offer of Messrs Taylor and Berry to construct tem- porary Water-works for filtering and de- livering from tanks, pure water to the carriers at 3d per load. A great deal of, we think, unnecessary fear of committing the city to a monopoly, was manifested. What Taylor and Berry required, judging from the correspondence, was merely the countenance and encouragement of fhe Cor- poration, not its pecuniary or legislative support. The question as to whether tho Corporation must make a road to the tanks will come on when it is required and must be taken entirely on its own merits. We are inclined to think that it will not cost more than the amount saved upon the Ford road, by the water-carts not going there. If the tanks are erected in a central situation ...
