THE BULLION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 January 1853

THE BULLION ACT. THIS Act having been in existence for twelve months, and being now nearly ex- tinct, we have arrived at a point of vision whence we can perceive its effects better than we could do during its progress. Our attention is again called to this subject by an article ia tbe Times upon Mr West- garth's Address to the Melbourne Cham-   ber of Commerce. The Times prefers our system of converting gold into ingots as being more likely to be disseminated over the world generally, than if it were run into tokens of smaller value, which in its opinion, could only pass current in the Australian colonies and in England : for we see with surprise that even the leading periodical in the world has not clear ideas of tbe value of a sovereign. "So far from regarding with dislike the principle of establishing an assay office in each colony, for the purpose of reducing gold at once into bars of authenticated weight and fineness, we are inclined to think, for the reasons above...

CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor of the MORNING CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 January 1853

CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor of the MODNING CHRONICLE.] Sir,-It would much benefit the Public Charitable Institutions of Adelaide if they were placed under the control or at least inspection of the City Corporation. Secrecy generally engenders abuse, and institutions which are supported by public funds should be open to public scrutiny. I am mainly induced to these remarks from the Lunatic Asylum still remaining in the sanie disgraceful condition as when Hast called your attention to this painfully disgusting subject. There was an intention expressed in the Coun- cil Chamber that the destitute poor and lying in women should be removed from the Lunatic Asylum when a suitable building could be found for their reception- This intention has not beeD followed by a single effort to obtain such a building. Indeed, I understand that the Lincoln Hotel, a large roomy house in a fine airy situation, was offered to Government on moderate terms without effect Nothing but public inspection will...

The Morning Chronicle. "This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." —Euripides. Adelaide: Thursday, January 27, 1853. IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 27 January 1853

" This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise tne'pnblic, maj speak free." Adelaide: Thursday, January 27, 1853. IMMIGRATION. HIS EXCELLENCY has placed £23,000 upon   the Estimates for immigration purposes, and we treat the money will be well applied by the Commissioners at home, and that our land fund will continue to make our land valuable. Voluntary immigration to South Aus-tralia has ..... superior ....... gold fields and while it is probable,that it will be over- done there, we are likely to feel a scarcity of laboar for some months to come. We see that a contemporary in his wisdom suggests that the money would go further in importing labour front other colonies;   but such conduct would justly offend our neighbours, and those who would accept a free passage to- Adelaide are likely not to be the most useful to the colony ; whereas if labour there becomes superabundant the most active and adventurous will find a way for themselves.

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. ELECIBJO C1.OÇK..-The illuminated elec- tric clock, erected at the crossing of the Strand, opposite Hungerford Market, has become an object of general interest and curiosity. It is moved by a voltaic current from a good regulator in the office of tho Electric Telegraph Company close at hand, and moved simultaneously with the fall of a bail which has been erected on the roof of their premises, and which communicates with the Observatory.
