The Morning Chronicle. "This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." —Euripides. Adelaide: Thursday, January 20, 1853. THE MARRIAGE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 20 January 1853
Cite banting ^rankle. " This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free.B -- Euripides. Adelaide i Thursday, January 20, 1853. THE MARRIAGE ACT. WE see with pleasure that tbe Church of England is no longer to have a monopoly of granting marriage licenses, but that the privilege is likewise granted to three clergymen of different denominations -- the Rev. R. Haining, Jno. Gardner, and --- Cheetham, and that any other minister ful- filling the provisions of the Act may also unite couples in matrimony at a day's notice. We say this because we do not see why the Church of England in a land where she is neither dominant nor estab- lished should keep to himself all these lucrative marriages, and because the emoluments derived from them she has added to the wealth of her higher clergy, and not to the poverty of her inferior ministry. But the principle of licensing marriages is not a sound one, and the sooner we get rid of that relic of Doctors Commons ...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 20 January 1853
MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. As the Augusta Schneider was coming in ander double-reefed topsails through Back SUire Passage, on MoDtlay, there was a heavy gale of wind, and as her cook, John Clark, was hauling aft the fore sheet, whilst the ship was in stays, the 6&il flapped, and he was knoeked overboard. The sails were at once put aback, and the life-buoy instantly dropped, but the poor old mao's COD fused efforts to reach it as a rapid current bore it away were ineffectual. The boat, also, was speedily lowered and put off, but too late to save the unfortunate man, who has left a wife and six children in Locdon to mourn and suSfer for his fate. From the deep regret felt for him which the Captain has evinced, we believe he would joy fal ly receive subscriptions for the widow and the orphans, acd we should expect that with the intelligence of her bereavement, she will also receive proof that, io tbe satisfaction of oar own prosperity, we are not regardless of the distre s of othe...
THE CONVICT QUESTION IN VICTORIA AND VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 January 1853
TBE CONVICT WESTION TN VIC- TORIA. AND . YAN DIEMEN'S LAND. - : , ? The mischiefs wbîeh hive arisen .inci- dentally out of the agitation of the Convict Question are quite in character with the demoralization involved in the question it- self. It has caused her Majesty's Govern- ment, under the counsels of Earl Grey, ta treat these colonies, .Van Diemen'e Land especially, with a degree "bf crjjelj^andT faithlessness which has tended: jnpre: tóan. anything else to weaken their attachment to the mother country. It seduced the head of our own Government into anons* the only considerable error, the only act decidedly unpopular with which his ad- ministration can be reproached. It has in« cited amongst some of iijoj jinhabj^nts of our northern districts A fastastieel-eraving after territorial dismembetöeni.H ^5nd we find by our intxUigence ïrom-! tbea neigh- bouring colonies of Victoria and Tasmania, that there also its hateful influences have been vigorously at work. : ; In Victoria the....
[To the Editor of the MORNING CHRONICLE] [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 January 1853
[To the Editor of the MORNING CtitRONicLE ] SIR,-Having seen that a contemporary publication, which has al «fays for some reason or other sneered at the Mechanic's Institute, has taken up its old complaint and mourns over the shelves of this library groaning be- neath trashy novels. I venture to say a few words iu defence of my own favorite species of rt adirg. That trashy novels exi r» I doubt not 5 but so does trash in every department of literature, we have trashy history, trashy trashy travels, and even trashy sermons, and trashy news- papers, and as novels are written more osten- sibly for amusement than these others, and are lighter reading, perhaps a greater auioun t of trash is swallowed in this form by the read- ing public than in any other, except perhaps in newspapers. But tastes differ, and James* novels are food to some jieople, while they are poison to others, and some men actually glean information from the works of Harrison Ainsworth, and amusement from the dreary wr...
