A MARBLE HALL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
A MARBLE HALL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." Sur-Since it appears possible that a great public building may be erected sametime by the Corporation under present propositions, and under a supervision that has not altogether the must of Government about it, allow me a little space for a suggestion, whieh I conceive to have no little importance. Our present public erections are, one and all, either mere confectionary work, in whimsical patterns, as the | Parliament House, or plaster and paint, as in the last built offices in King William-street. However con- venient they may be, they are nothing but specimens of patchwork, unbecoming national purposes, which ought not to be considered as the ephemera: of street ^architecture. There is no ostensible permanence of material about them, and their very elements call for inoessant repairs to preserve them so long as they liftng together, or until the rubbish is cleared away, before a dwelling-house has reached its maturity of «existence...
DEMORALISING EXHIBITIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
DEMORALISING EXHIBITIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." pir-Are you aware that it is proposed to erect a pavilion in this city in which wrestling matches will be held. Such exhibitions, in their effect and ten- dencies, are but a shade better than prize fighting ; ' they congregate the lowest, most abandoned, and dissolute diameters, and unquestionably have a most demoralizing effect. This being the case, it is to be hoped all such exhibitions will be discountenanced by the authorities. It may not be generally known that not only principals but spectators at such places are liable to be dealt with under the law. I am, Sir, yours, 'DECENCY.

THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOE OF THE " ADVERTISER.' Sir-Last night's Gazette contains the nameä of two gentlemen resident in England who are desirous of bringing their land under the above Act. Will you allow me through the medium of your columns to ask whether any application signed by the respective proprietors was made, and whether the declarationh to the truth of the abstract was subscribed by them as required by clause 14 ? If the declaration was signed by the agents (in this province) of the applicants, who will be criminally responsible in case of perjury ? Is it possible that these two modern Curtii have left their native shores for the express purpose of availing themselves of the provisions of this most invaluable measure ? Yours, &e., T. B. B. Adelaide, Jnly 16, 1858.

RETIRING REPRESENTATIVES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
RETIRING REPRESENTATIVES. TO THE EDITOR OP THE " ADVERTISER." Sir-Among other sudden and unlooked-for changes in the representation of the South Australian counties, the electors of the County of Light were a few months since (through the retiring into private life of one of their members), called upon to elect a representative in his room ; one of the gentlemen who ofi'ered himself as a candidate to represent that constituency in Par- liament was elected. He has now, however, accepted oSBce under the new Real Property Act, thus early necessitating another election. I respectfully ask you, as one of the guardians of the public weal, is it right that the country should be put to the expense of elections arising from such causes ? and ought not members retiring under such circumstances be required to refund into the public Treasury the cost of their election ? Such a measure would, I thinkjbo a saying to the country. I am, Sir, &c, AN ELECTOR OF LIGHT.
BANKING ACCOMMODATION. [The following article on banking has been forwarded for insertion by a mercantile gentleman of this city.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
BANKING ACCOMMODATION. [The following article on hanking has been forwarded for insertion by a mercantile gentle- man of this city.] In the present derth of topics of interest, either > political or commercial, a considerable amount of \ C* lie attention has been drawn to the existing i king arrangements in this colony, and doubts have been expressed as to whether the present supposed necessity for contraction of discounts does not arise more from causes ove; which the Banks ought to have control, tlian from the fact of the floating capital of South Australia being ' insufficient for tue accommodation of legitimate trading. But it will, perhaps, be well before > entering into the subject to consider two points, the effect of over facilities for discount, and, on the contrary, the effects on the tone of the colony of a want of sufficient accommodation. The result of the first of these conditions may be thus briefly stated:-The merchant having great facilities for discount exten...

A NORWOOD FARMER informs ua that a gentle« man, learned in the law, has declared Mr. Torrens* appointment as Registrar under the Real Property Act to be "not worth the paper it is written on." As our correspondent desires our opinion on the point, we beg to assure him that we think it is worth the paper it is written on-and more, at least to Mr. Torrens. In reply to the same correspondent, we have to state that Mr. Torrens' proceedings, if in conformity with the Act, will be " binding." A HABD CASE.-Late last evening an appli- cation was made to the Police authorities by a man named Kirkwood under the following circumstances. He stated that in the early part of the week he left his home in search of employment, and after an absence of three days returned to town, when he discovered that his wife, during his absence, had removed the whole of his furniture to an Auction Mart, and having received an advance upon it of ^£4, had decamped. The auctio íeer had intimated his intention of se...

PORT ADELAIDE CORPORATION. Tnunn>AY, JULY 15. Present-His Worslnp the Mayor, Alderman John Smith, Councillors Grosse, Smith, Burfield, and Wald. Minutes of last meeting read and confirmed. Mr. J. W. SMITH proposed "that the Town Clerk be requested to write the Surveyor-General, applying for copy of original plan of Port Adelaide, as shewn by the Government proclamation, constituting the corporation of said town, bearing date 27th December, 1855;" which was unanimously adopted. In reference to a knotty question as to what control the Corporation had over private roads, the Corpora- tion thought that those parties who had private roads, more particularly the Portland Estate Company, and the South Australian Company should be written to with a view to asertain whether they would he inclined to vest the control of such roads in the Corporation. His WOKSHIP read a letter received from Mr. Ridge, Port-road, calling attention to a wooden building erected by Mr. Grosse, since the new act...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. Tho Eastern Province Herald of 7th May has the following on the North-east Border and Freo State affairs : " The Boers and Burghers arc opposing forces in- cluding portions of almost all the native tribes. On the 26th April a combined foray of the Bosutos oc- curred. It was a combined movement, and extended over a line of upwards of 30 miles-one common centre having been appointed as a place for rendez- vous for tue captured stock. The booty seized must have been something considerable. It is estimated at not less than 9,000 good woolled sheep, 2,000 head of cattle, and 1,003 horses ; but it is probable rumour may have, in these figures, exaggerated the true state of the case. One farmer, named Botha, had all his cattle swept oft", and lost, in addition, £2,000 in cash. The ruin brought upon numbers is complete, and so great is the destitution that several are dependent upon the charity of their more fortunate neighbours and friends.

Read, the Engineer's fortnightly report on the pro- gress of the works to the 3rd instant. A portion of the drm-hoad of the reservoir in shallow embankment liad been brought up 'tto its permanent height, and copious rains were much required for consolidating the work.

SARDINIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 17 July 1858
SARDINIA. Count Covour made a remarkable speech on \ the 16th, in defence of the new Bill. In the course of the speech the President of the Council gave a rapid sketch of the policy of tlie Sardinian Government since the present King ascended the throne. He ad- mitted that the policy inaugurated by Charles Albei't, and since pursued, was not without its perils. There was danger of attack from a great Power, which beheld with displeasure the success of a political system diametrically opposed to its own. It was ne- cessary to make friends, to form alliances. But per- haps, he said, Signor Brofferio might be of opinion that before seeking the alliance of France it would have been well to wait for a change of Government in that country. For his part, whale entertaining great respect for the French nation, he thought it one of the least suited for Republican institutions. And if there were a Republic in Franco, what would there be to hope from it ? All Republics, he remarked, had an ego...

Latitude 31° ltf 49" south. ' Longitude by account 136° 46' 0" east. July 1,1858. Sir-In consequence of tlie most seasonable change of weather we have experienced here, I have determined to send down fresh inst.uctions to Mr. Warriner who has charge of the advanced camp, and I avail myself of the opportunity to send you an account of my further pro- ceedings. Tlie weather liad been very dry for some weeks, and I was beginning to get a little anxious on account of the shrinkage of tlie water which I found on again visit , ing what appears now to he Smith's smaller waterhole, i called by the natives " Corroberribera" and is about eight or nine miles east of this. Fortunately rain set in with : gentle N. W. wind on the morning of the 27th, and it has continued showery ever since. Occasionally a storm o...
