THE ROYAL WEDDING ADDRESS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
THE ROYAL WEDDING ADDRESS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir,-I perceive our Legislature intend congratulating Her Majesty the Queen, on the marriage of her eldest daughter to the Prince Frederick of Prussia. I would ask, Mr. Editor, whether a South Australian Parliament should have anything to do or say with what is evidently a family matter. For my own part, I would have excused the Congratulatory Address, had the young lady married an Irishman, Scotchman, or Englishman ; but as &nbsp; regards this Prussian alliance, I don't like it ! for I, for one, cannot forget the part Prussia played in the late Crimean war; nor her faithless conduct during the French war. I remain, Sir, &c, TRUE BRITON.
MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
MEXICO. Later news from Mexico had been received in San Francisco. The following summary is from the Daily Times : The affairs of this unhappy republic still remain as unsettled as ever. In the capital, and, in fact, the cen- tral portion of the country, the Government of Zuloaga still maintains its sway, and in some matters appears to be possessed of considerable strength. On the other hand, although the Juarez party as a union has been defeated and its forces dispersed, yet, with the single exception of Mazatlan, none of the revenue-paying ports have been gained by the Zuloaga administration. The struggle still has to be maintained by the Central Govern- ment against the Liberals, who, although divided and under the command of several chieftains, are all fighting, if not for Benito Juarez, against a common centre, the Government in the capital. The results of these conflicts j necessarily weaken the Central Government ; its men j and means are rapidly diminishing, its necessities ...
MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
MAURITIUS. By tho Ville do Cannes we have a file of the Port Louis Commercial Gazelh to the 22nd July, the contents [ of which may be thus briefly summarized : The Secretary of State had responded to the applica- tion of the Mauritius Government, with respect to the construction of railways in the island, by sending out a railway engineer and staff to make the necessary surveys and estimates of the projected lines. The withdrawal of British troops from Mauritius for India had excited the attention of the Governor of the neighbouring French colony of Réunion. Referring to the very large Coolie population of Mauritius, and the probability of their sympathising with the Bengal muti- neers, His Excellency, in case of any danger, real or apparent, had offered to forward at once all the available troops that could be spared. Offer gracefully declined. The Peninsular and Oriental Company's new screw steamer Malabar, 1,080 tons registered and 200 horse- power, had been placed on the Port Lo...
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. By the barque Success, whieh called at Fremantle on the way from the Mauritius, we have papers to August 18th, from which we extract the following intelligence : WESTERN AUSTRALIAN BANK.-The proprietors of the Western Australian Bank held their half-yearly meeting in Perth on the 14th instant. The following is from the Directors' Report:-The transactions of the past half-year have not been such as to call for any special comment, the operations having been of a regular and ordinary kind. It will be seen, from the statement be- fore the meeting, that the profits of the period have been good, and that the business generally has been main- tained. The trade in discounts, upon local bills of a highly legitimate character, continues to be an important and profitable branch, while the operations of the Bank in foreign exchanges with England and the Aus- tralian colonies, and in other sources of profit, add their due proportion to the general income. The extent to which ...
CLARE. [From our Correspondent.] Clare, August 27, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
CLAEE. [From our Correspondent.] Clare, August 27, 185S. I. he rams have been exceedinly partial in the north. In the immediate neighbourhood of Clare and some of the sheep stations to the north-west, there has been a good fall of rain, but upon those stations towards the Black Rock or ¡north-east, there has been scarcely any for the last month. Sheep farmers are making active preparations for the forthcoming shearing, some of which are expected to commence in about a fortnight. From what I have seen of the number of persona now travelling in search of employment, there will be no want of hands to fulfil the necessary occupation. I may also state to you that tho number now travelling Jin search of employment is more than I have seen since the commencement of the gold diggings. I think there is a probability of many old hands coming from the Melbourne district for the shear- ing season. I was lately upon one station where there | were three who had come overland looking for employ- m...

LOCAL COURT—AUBURN. CRIMINAL SIDE. THURSDAY, AUGUST 19. [Before Mr. J. W. Macdonald, S.M.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
LOCAL COURT-AUBURN. CRIMINAL SIDE. THURSDAY, AUGUST 19. [Before Mr. J. W. Macdonald, S.M.] SHEEPSTEALING BY NATIVES.-Murrowitch'and Warro witch, two aboriginal natives, were committed from Clare to this Court, for having, on Yorke's Peninsula, on the 11th of July last, feloniously stolen, taken, and carried away three sheep, value ¿2, the property of W. W. Hughes. The pri- soners confessed to having taken one sheep each. John Dun- can, overseer for Mr. Hughes, at Wallaroo, on Spencer's Gulf, deposed that he counted a flock of sheep on the morning of the nth of July last, and found it contained 1,007 head. At 4 p.m. he saw the flock feeding home ; shortly afterwards he saw them rounded back into Tipperalta Scrub. When they came up to the yard at night, he counted them again, and found there were three less than in the morning. He then questioned the native boy and girl, who had been m charge of them, and they told him that the prisoners had taken the three, bound their feet, and carr...

THE DANGERS OF THE DEEP.-A party con- sisting of three inexperienced amateurs, tempted by the opportunity afforded by a good breeze, started from the Port on Sunday morning on a sailing cruise. They had not, however, proceeded far before their want of ex- perience was severely tested, as a sudden puff, which cap- sized their little boat, proved to their cost. The accident was fortunately observed from the shore, and several boats put off immediately to the assistance of the unfor- tunate», who were rescued from their perilous position.

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Saturday, August 28, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858
MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Saturday, August 28, 1858. There is no alteration to notice in the tone of the wheat and flour market. The accounts from Melbourne are so adverse to any improvement, and the pressure for money is felt so generally, that the market wants the sustaining effect of purchasers even at the reduction which has taken place. Should buyers to any extent for either flour or wheat come forward at present rates prices would resume a steadier tone ; but with the present uncertainty and want of confidence prices droop from day to day. We have-heard of outside country flour being offered at £14 10s., and best at £15 10s. ; whilst £15 is offered by buyers for the latter. Wheat has again receded to (is. in town and 6s. 3d. at the Port. In bran there ara buyers at Is. 7d., and but little offering. Freights to Melbourne, from the quantity going for- ward, are firm. The cargo of Mauritius sugar, ex Mile de Cannes, is announced for Monday next, by Messrs. Solomon & Co. th...

LOCAL COURT-NORMANVILLE. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25. [Before Messrs. B. F. Laurie, S.M., and Septimane Herbert, J.P.] MASTER AND ¡SERVANT.-John Allen, of the Blowhole, Cape Jervis, sheepfarmer, [appeared to the information of John Bromley, who claimed the sum of 18s. being balance of wages due. On investigation the Board found that the balance was on the other side, and gave judgment accordingly for the sum of 2Í. is. 2d. to be paid defendant. The complainant further alleged that the defendant had seized his tools without his permission. The defendant explained that he had seized them as security for the above amount, which when paid the tools should be returned. There were several cases on the civil aide standing for trial, the hearing, which, however, was adjourned, as there was not a Court ofFull Jurisdiction sitting.

CLAYTON CHAPEL, KEXSINGTOÎT.-The B.3V. Mr. Binney preached at this place of worship yesterday morning, in aid of the funds of the South Australian Home Missionary Society. There was a very large congregation ; indeed, the building would not have con- tained a larger audience. The text was taken from tho last verse of the 17th Psalm-"But as for mo; I will behold thy presence in righteousness ; and when I awake up after thy likeness, I shall be satisfied with it." The rationality of revelation, its adaptability to tue wants and aspirations of humanity ; the expectations of a life of eternal happiness, or tha reward of a life of Christian rectitude ; the contentious continually going on between the soul and its four great adversarios-death, the grave, sin. and the law ; the necessity of setting oui- nearts upon things above instead of upon things of tha world these constituted the chief points of the sermon, and were illustrated with all that original, lucid, and manly impressiveness f...

INSOLVENCY COUET. SATURDAY, AUGUST 28. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] In re T. C. CIIUBB. Tlie Commissioner delivered judgment in this case as fol- lows :-In the matter of the private estate of T. C. Chubb, and of the joint estate of Chubb, Hill, & Co. In this case, on the 8th of January last, at the instance of the South Austra- lian Banking Company, a fiat was issued against Mr. Thomas Caldecot Chubb upon a declaration.of insolvency filed by the insolvent on the 6th day of the same month. At this time Mr. Chubb was at large, and the proceedings being on the petition of a creditor and not on his own petition to relieve him from imprisonment, the powers which enabled the Court of Insolvency under the repealed Local Act of the 5th Victoria, No. 1, in certain cases detailed in sections 28 and 29 of that Act, to direct that the insolvent's discliarge should not take place for periods of two or three years, according to the nature of the case proved, were altogether inapplicabl...
