No title [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 3 September 1858

THE relation subsisting between Government officers and the responsible Administration, and that subsisting between responsible Ministers and the representatives of the people, promise to occupy a large share of parliamentary attention. On Wednesday the bon. member for the Port, Mr. Hughes, carried a resolution, affirming that if any person appointed by Government to an office yielding emolument by fees or salary, was returned to Parliament, his office, ipso facto should be declared vacant. The manner in which this motion-involving consequences of such a sweeping character, and covering ground so much more extra than had been intended-was carried, is substantial proof of the determination of the Legislature to preserve intact the great principle of pure representation. Connected with this subject, though distinct from it, was tlie important motion tabled by Mr. Reynolds for Thursday, and which would doubtless have led to a most animated debate, had not the Gover- nor forestalled it ...

MARKET REPORT Adelaide, Thursday, September 2, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 3 September 1858

MARKET REPORT Adelaide, Thursday, September 2, IS öS. The Havilah's sailing for Melbourne is postponed till Saturday. The tenor of her advices, though in some measure anti- cipated by the telegianis d.iiiy received from Melbourne, puts us in possession more fully of the state of trade in Victoria; and the prospect of*any improvement in the value of our staples of flour and whîat seems, from these advices, to be somewhat precarious. Throughout the week there has been an enquiry for flour at £15 to £lo 10s.-the latter price for payment on time. Wheat has come in more sparingly this week than last ; but buyers show no eagerness to purchase. We quote it at b's. to tis. 3.1. in town, and 6s. 3d. to C's. Gd. at_ the Port. Parcels are offering at these prices, to come in, but the «-eather has operated agaiust immédiats delivery. Eran is asked for at Is. 7d. lo Is. Ila. Barley, both English and Cape, have been offered frequently, but buyers hold off still more since the decline in wheat. Th...

JUNCTION OF THE DARLING. [From our Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 3 September 1858

JUNCTION OF THE DARLING. [From our Correspondent.] Tlie arrival of steamboats at this place since the rise of the flood has made us all cheerful, and tends at the Some time to remind us that we are not without the pale a civilization, although so far distant from Adelaide and Sydney. The want of punts at tha Junction of the Darling, at the Ana branch, and the Rufus, is felt to be an evil of no ordinary kind to travellers ; but like good and easy denizens of the interior, we must submit to heavy taxation and monstrous local burdens without repre- sentation. The time perhaps is not far distant, when a small portion of the revenue of New South Wales will be demanded by us as a right for local purposes, and not accepted as a boon. At the present moment, in the Albert district, we are contributing some six or seven thousand pounds per annum to the Government, for the rental of Crown Lands ; in addition to the minor duties levied on tea, sugar, tobacco, &c., which articles, as a m...

NEW SOUTH*WALES. [From our own Correspondent.] Sydney. Ansrust 14. The troubles of the Electoral Bill "are nearly ended at last, so fir as the Assembly is concerned. The Commit- tee hove in sight of the preamble the other day, much to the satisfaction of many lion, members who began to think that the discussion was never to end. The Bill has not bsen reported yet, and is open to a few minor touches, but there will be no reopening of the general questions. Mr. Parkes pointed out what he considered a groat over- sight on the part of a Liberal Ministry, viz., that there was no repeal of tlie present quinquennial fritting» of Par- liament. The Premier said ho was in favour of triennial Parliaments, and so did tho Secretary for Lands nnd Public Work?, but neither of them offered to introduce the necessary clause. Some members thought it unneces- sary, inasmuch as, under the working of responsible Go- vernment, at leo-st in the wav in which we work it, there was no chance of five years pa...

IN the speech, of His Excellency delivered at the j opening of the session, reference is made to the .. sound proportion" existing between the imports J ¡id exports of the colony; and a conclusion is Irawn in reference to our present financial posi -ioii -more favorable than some person* are clis insed to acknowledge. The principal objection o the financial portion of the Address is, that it >!ily brings down the import and export trade of ' iie colony to the close of 1857, whereas consider- óle depression has occurred since that time. .Ye may here remark that, in our opinion, ii vould certainly have been more satisfactory if His Excellency's advisers had grounded their re narks upon the figures of the year ending June JOLTt, 185S, rather than upon those of the year Miding December 31st, 1857. It is notorious that the exports of native produce during the first two quarters of 1858 show a great de- ficiency as compared with those of the first two quarters of 1857, and it would und...

VICTORIA. [From our own Correspondent.] Melbourne, August 28,1858. Tntitcad of having it in my power to report any improve- ment in general business, I " regret that I am compelled to reiterate the oft-told talk- of dullness. This week it has rather, if anything, increased, arising from the rumors of the insta- bility- ol' some hitherto-considered first-rate houses. How l rue'iliese miiv be, remains to be seen. It is to be hoped they will prove groundless ; but whether true or not, trade receives a more than passing injury from the whispers, as a feeling ol' distrust is engendered in the minds of sellers, which it takes time to eradicate. I refrain from mentioning any names, ex- cepting Messrs, Waller & Son, whose stoppage is publiclv known. English creditors, it is believed, will be the chief, ii not only sufferers. The amount of transactions during the past ten days have beni of some magnitude; but they have been mostly effected at auction, which appears at present to be t...
