THE quantity of ink that has been shed over the question of immigration is something prodigious. Every session produces fresh material both for writing and printing ; and amongst the first studies of lion, members at each meeting of Par- liament, this interminable question occupies a prominent place. Already, amongst the newly presented papers we find forty-nine closely printed folio pages of despatches and statistics relative to this subject, and no one would dare predict to what extent this mass of matter is likely to be augmented before the session closes. To print such voluminous correspondence in the newspapers is, of course, impossible, although as but comparatively few persons will be any the wiper for the Government pamphlets, we may render service by giving some description of their contents. As the public are generally aware, His Excel- lency Sir Richard MacDonnell, shortly after his arrival in this colony, found himself immersed in the great whirlpool of the immigration d...

THE PROPOSED TOWN HALL. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858

THE PROPOSED TOWN HALL. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-As one taking a great interest in all public im- provements and matters conducive to the welfare of the city, allow me to make a few observations on the late meeting of citizens convened by his Worship the Mayor. The importance of the scheme cannot but be admitted, and I must say that in reading the reports of the speeches made on that occasion, I was forcibly struck with the utter want of any cogent reasons assigned as the ground of opposition to the measure; the burden to be borne being so trifling, and the advantages so numerous. The desirability of having a public hall, which may be used for all purposes the citizens may require, either for public meetings, banquets, or social gatherings, cannot, I think, be denied by Anyone. The only question is the means to be adopted to bring about such a desirable end. With regard to the profits derivable from the letting of shops, &c, as proposed by the Corporation, it is ...

THE GREAT CAMEL QUESTION. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858

THE GREAT CAMEL QUESTION. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-Your columns of Wednesday cont lined an article upon what you call " the great camel question." I agree with you in its being an important one, though I must take exception to some of the remarks made in your ex- tracts, as, were they to pass unnoticed, many of your readers would be misled in believing Dr. Embling's state- ment about camels to be correct. The extensive cor- respondence about the '-great question" has induced me to collect the various effusions of the writers on the sub- ject, and among the rest are letters of Dr. Enabling, whose attempts to benefit Australia by advocating the introduction of foreign animals and plants deserve every commendation, but who, at any rate, upon the subject of camels, is not a practical man, but takes his cue from others. This is easily seen by perusing a letter of his which appeared in the Melbourne Argus on the 30th March last. In this letter Dr. Embling invites us t imitate ...

THE DYNANOMETER. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858

THE DYNANOMETER. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-In your issue of Saturday last a correspondent very naturally expresses astonishment that tho Judges at the late Agricultural Exhibition at Woodville, awarded the prizes to Ploughs, without the aid of a clyniinometar, and without any reference to the power required to work the implements. The matter has elicited a gond deal of discussion amongst farming men, many of whom I have bren astonished to find ignorant of what a dvnanometer is, or of the principle upon which it is constructed. It is a simple inexpensive instrument, free from complication of any kind, can be packed in small compass, and used without the slightest difficulty. Its principle is precisely the same as that of the common spring-balance in use in almost every kitchen. Upon a leg of mutton, for instance, being placed on the hook, the spring collapses, and the weight is indicated upon the dial. Imagine such an instrument placed lengthways, instead of being held upr...

REV. MU. BINNEY.-A very disreputable attempt to disappoint the public was made on Sunday morning at Kensington. On the doors of Clayton Chapel a well-written and apparently official notification was posted stating that owing to severe indisposition the Rev. Mr. Binney would be unable to preach as announced. The notice was written upon half a quarto sheet of laid paper, of peculiar tenacity, resembling bank note paper, and was affixed to the door by means of gum applied to the four corners of the document. The gum hada pink hue, similar to that on the back of the postage stamps. It would be very satisfactory if the perpetrator of this trick could be discovered. A DESIDERATUM.-On Saturday we inspected some soap-stone, with which a furnace was set upwards of four years ago, and which has since been in active operation. Prior to this the furnace had been set in fire- bricks, but these soon yielded to the constant and intense heat to which they were subjected, and the proprietor was indu...

RIGHTS OF THE HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY. (From the San Francisco Evening Bulletin, June 3rd). [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858

EIGHTS OF THE HUDSONS BAY COMPANY. (From the San Francisco Evening Bulletin, June 3rd). Just at this time, considerable inte-est is felt by p3ople hereabouts in the question as t3 the right of the Hudson's Bay Company to the exclusive trade with the Frazer River region, which promises to soon become of great importance. Governor Douglas has issued a proclamation, in which he declares that, under the charter with the English Government, the company which he represents has the exclusive right to trade with the Indians in the British Possessions on the north-west coast of America,' and warns those interested that, after 14 days, all vessels with their cargoes found in Frazer River, or any other, river or bay in the British Possessions on this coast, without a license from the Hudson's Bay Company, shall be liable to seizure and forfeiture. This proclamation has caused not a little discussion, and is destined no doubt to be narrowly canvassed here and on the other side of the water ; fo...

LIMITED LIABILITY IN BANKING. (From the Economist.) [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 30 August 1858

LIMITED LIABILITY IN BANKING. (From the Economist.) The bill for extending the principle of limited liability to the trade of banking has been read a second time in the House of Commons, without even a division. It may, therefore, be considered practically to have been adopted by the Legisla- ture, and that it awaits only the formal remain- ing stages in order to become the law of the land. Thus one more untenable and exceptional restric- tion will be removed from our statute book. The main reason why this measure has met with all but unanimous support upon the present occasion, vliile it has upon all former occasions been re- jected by large majorities, is, that Mr. Headlam lias wisely recognised now, for the first time, the essential difference which exists between the posi- tion of the involuntary creditor of a bank in the person of a note-holder, and the voluntary credi- tor in the person of a depositor. The absence of such a distinction in his former bills, it may be remembered...

POLICE COURT.-REDRUTH. [From our own Correspondent.] MONDAY, AUGUST 23. RESCUING CATTLE FROM THE POUND.-Gilbert v. David. -Mary Gilbert, the complainant's wife, stated that on the Monday previous she was taking some cattle to the pound from her husband's property. Whilst passing defendant's house the inmates noticed some of their cattle, and defendant came out and drove them off. Complainant told him where she was taking them and threatened to commence legal pro- ceedings if he persisted in taking his cattle away. He paid no attention to the threat but drove 12 away from the mob. Mary Winston, for the defence, stated that she was by the cattle when complainant was driving them to the pound. A little boy called out Sally and Jemmy. Complainant said she would take out a summons, and the boy ran away home and the complainant drove the cattle after lum. He was running towards the pound- Catherine David said-I was busy milk- ing. Tommy came running home and said he thought Mr». Gilbert w...

Cjje luwtiöet. ADELAIDE: MONDAY, AUGUST 30, 185S. IT is scarcely possible for tis to pass unnoticed a remark made by tlie Register newspaper, on I Saturday last, with reference to an observation addressed by the Editor of the Advertiser to the citizens of Adelaide, at a public meeting held the evening previously. That remark vas as follows : -* If they were to allow Government officers, not being responsible Ministers, to occupy seats in Parliament^ they might have these officers going down and offering special advantages to certain districts, and by that means, gaining the suffrages of those constituencies to the injury of the general community. Thus one might go, fer example, to Port Elliot, or to the Goolwa, and promise the expenditure of largo sums of money in that locality, and thus obtain the suffrages of the constituencies, for even patriotism itself would tell the people that these works, if executed in their neighbourhood, would be vast good to tho country at large.
