POLICE COURT—PORT ADELAIDE. MONDAY, AUGUST 30. [Before Mr. R. F. Newland, J.P.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

POLICE COURT-PORT ADELAIDE. MONDAY, AUGUST 30. [Before Mr. K. F. Newland, J.P.] PUBLIC-HOUSE BRAWLS.-John Miller appeared to answer a charge of assault preferred against him by a young woman of masculine appearance, who responded to the name of Maria Flinn. The plaintiff deposed that she was servant to Mr. Ferrers, of the Prince of Wales Hotel, at the Port, and had been in his employ for more than two years. She came from the farm to the public-house at the Port on Saturday week, for the purpose of taking up some supplies. Defendant and others who were in the boat appeared to be in liquor. When she came into the house the defendant caught her by the breast ; she gave him the back of her hand, and he then made use of filthy expressions towards her, which are not fit for repetition. Several witnesses were heard in support of the statement of prosecutrix. The Magistrate considered that the defendant having attempted improper liberties with prosccutrix, she had acted very properly in wh...

CLARE. MONDAY, AUGUST 23. Present-Messrs. C. H. Webb (Chairman), Brady, Wright, and Hitchcox. In reply to a memorial respecting the road through Section 41, Clare, the Council, after carefully examining the land grant, and the diagram on the margin thereof, winch shows no road through the said section, and having also perused a letter addressed to Doctor Webb, the present proprietor thereof, from Messrs. Brazil and Poole, surveyors to tile Council, to the effect that no road exists through the said section on the land grant plan deposited in the Land Office, considers that it would be impolitic and unjust to interfere with the matter, unless by purchasing a road if absolutely necessary, but for which purpose, at present, there areno funds.

PORT APPOINTMENTS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

PORT APPOINTMENTS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-Perhaps one great use of the press is the enabling the whole population to know what one of themselves imagines is going on in public matters, apart from politi- cal considerations and manouvres. Unfortunately one great drawback to a representative Government is the constant impulse towards bribery and corruption, for which the only check is publicity. It may be doubtless very difficult for our holders of the loaves and fishes to avoid the importunities of their par- tisans for a slice, and so long as the appointments are made with some decent regard to capability, with some recollection (however faint) that the Government are only trustees for the people, liberal-minded men are inclined to wink at a partiality for their own supporters. But when this trust is openly violated, and men, good doubtless in their own vocation, are thrust into posts they are clearly incompetent for, it appears to me to be only the duty of a journalis...

THE PASTORAL INTEREST. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

THE PASTORAL INTEREST. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-Some time since your contemporary stated that the Government " will proSably reserve the power to tax for the general purposes of the colony, the future leaseholders of the Crown Lands." Now in England our papers generally have a distinctive character, advocating certain parties and principles ; here we are more fortunate-the interests of the people and mankind at large are only ad- vocated. Yet, while our journalists ridicule the circum- locution office and red tape, I believe no chancery or state paper office in Europe could yield in so few words so much to excite disgust and derision, as well as likewise showing a thorough disregard for the inalinable rights of men-the right and power of taxation-as to asseit for a moment that anything between a lessor and lesseecan aftect the same. But we have not only that to deal with, for as it appears the Government intend introducing a measure for the moderate assessment of stock. ...

THE ITALIAN CONFERENCE HOAX.-A rather remarkable trial took place at the Middlesex Session* on the 20th of May-that of "Alexander lionomco," otherwise " Dr. Tucker," the clever adventurer who deceived the Lon- don press with reports of an "Italian Conference" which never was held. He was tried for defrauding the Morninrj S'ar of certain sums of money which were paid to him for "reports" of the conference; but he had also been paid for his intercstinjr communications by the Times, the Adocrt>vr, and the Herald. It appeared in the course of the proceedings that Tucker is the son of Irish parents, but was taken to Milan in his infancy ; he assumed the name of " Rorromeo ;" he has represented himself as au exile, whose estates had been confiscated; he. has lectured as "Dr. Tucker." It is saidtluit he has married three women, all now living; while a fourth gave evidence against him-she had been induced to live with him as his wife, he pretended to make her such by n "ivil con- tract a...

THE WATERWORKS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

THE WATERWORKS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sil"-As the Clerk of Works and the Engineer of the I river weir have published a letter each in the daily papers of tiie colony, I deem it not impudent in me to offer an opinion, by perusing both letters carefully through. I think that Mr. Sands has given to the public a state- ment of facts in a mild and straightforward way ; but, Sir, the Engineer has published a letter in a far different temperament to the Clerk of the Works, using language that shows to the public and the world guiltiness. But to come to the point. The Engineer still maintains that Mr. Hanson and Mr. Freeling do not condemn the work. Barely, Sir, whoever reads the report of those gentlemen can but see that they decidedly condemn it ; and in the main point of the structure, where the work should have been let into the solid rock, it is propped up with spalls. Now, Sir, as the foundation is propped up with spalls, is the work done according to plan and specification...

THE GREAT RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT. (From a correspondent of the Edinburgh News of the Churches). [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

THE GREAT RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT« (From a correspondent bf the Edinburgh Kens of the Cliurches). "The Great Awakening" is the term used to designate the extensive revival of religion now in progress in this i country, and is yet the theme of conversation everywhere, and of discussion in all our papers, religious and secular. Tho merchant, the lawyer, the farmer, the mechanic, the nob, and the poor, seem alike interested. The north, south, east, and west seem alike pervaded by the work of tho Spirit. The rain and dew of heaven seem to fall equally on the city and country, and all the evan- gelical denominations soem alike watered. And, save a Romish and Puseyite paper in New York, and a paper here and there under the control of Unitarians and Universalista, the entire press of the land point to this wide-spread awakening as the work of God. In the conducting of this work there no evangelists-no revival preachers-no camp-meeting excitements-no- thing that the most prudent and conservative...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. DTtE\T>Fux Moroni ix SrAPronDSHip.E. - The County of Stafford has just been the scene of a brutal murder. The particular spot at which the tragedy occurred is railed Brockmoor. It is an outlying dis- trict in the parish of Kingswinford, on the confines of "Worcestershire, a few yards within the Staffordshire boundary, and about three miles from Dudley. It is a populous locality within the South Stafford mining district. The circumstances attendant upon the com- mission of the murder, and the motive of its perpe- tration, are involved in much mystery. The facts, so fir as they are known, may be briefly stated. On the afternoon ofthe 10th of June the murdered man was drinking with a friend at a beerhouse at Brockmoor. His name was William Collier. He is supposed to have been a native of Manchester, where he resided until within a comparatively recent period. He was by (..ade an engineer, and worked as a fitter for Messra. lîrown & Freer, of Brockmoor...

PROPOSED LAND BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 31 August 1858

PEOPOSED LAND BANK. Mr. R. li: Torrens has published a pamphlet entitled a " Project for the Establishment of a South Australian Land Bank, on principles similar to those of the ' Institution des Credit Foncier' on the continent of Europe. " We are not quite sure that we clearly comprehend the meaning of this pampldet, but as we are desirous to give it the benefit of publicity, we shall quote its principal contents. We might have expected that as the proposed Land Bank is to be established on the principle of the " Credit Foncier" of Europe, that the pamphlet would have commenced with a popular description of those institutions. This, however, is not done ; but Mr. Torrens, after developing his ideas with reference to the projected Land Bank, quotes from the Edinburgh Beview, of Oct., 1857, on " Landed Credit," and the follow- ing paragraph, as being the most intelligible and instructive, we accordingly reprint : " Pages 426 and 427.-'In all the institutions esta- blished on the Con...

THE LICENSED VICTUALLERS.-A gentleman connected with the Licensed Victuallers' Association in "Victoria has recently arrived in Adelaide, his object being personally to observe the operation of the Licensed Victuallers Act in force in this colony, and to to report thereon upon his return to Victoria. His attention will be principally directed to that portion of the Act which. permits trading during certain hours on Sunday, and to ascertain whether this privilege apparently augments intoxication. The Victorian Act is extremely stringent upon this point, Sunday trading being not only strictly prohibited, but a violation of the Act in this respect, involving a heavy pecuniary penalty and a for- feiture of licence. We are informed that the result of this prohibition has been, however, quite opposite to what was anticipated, there having for years past been more drunkenness in Victoria upon the Sabbath than upon any other day. This is attributed by the police, and others capable of formi...
