THE RISK ALLAH TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 25 September 1868
THE RISK ALLAH TRIAL. The action between Risk Allah Bey and our popular contemporary, the Daily Telegraph, which has just terminated in favour of the former, has had a wide public interest, both from its own characteristics and from the positions of the contending parties. That it should be tried before a Judge whose liberal sympathies on all points connected with the privileges of the press are as well known as Sir Alexander Cock burn's, has given additional weight to proceedings in themselves sufficiently important, and the able slimming up, and the verdict delivered, will be long quoted from their conclusive bearing upon the respective rights of journalism and the public. The plaintiff, Bisk Allah Bey, was originally intended, for the Greek Church, in which his uncle and grandfather were priests. He was born in Lebanon, and was eventually educated at the instance of the Turkish Government in this country for the profession of medicine. Having obtained his diploma from our College...
THE LAND QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 25 September 1868
THE LAJND QUESTION. One of tlie chief topics of hustings questionings and cross-questionings during the late general election was most undoubtedly the system of dis posal of the waste lands Of the Crown. The voice of the whole country imperatively demanded some new system, and agreed almost unanimously in condemning the present as one which offered the greatest possible facility to those middlemen who as a class have somewhat unwisely as well as uncharitably been dubbed "land-sharks," at-the same time throwing considerable impediments in -the way of bond fide farmers who wished to acquire land. Knowing the opinion of the country in this matter, it certainly behoved the Minis tiy, after the long recess enjoyed by them, to come before the Parliament with, a well-devised and prac ticable scheme of amendment-to determine their policy on that question, and boldly take their stand thereby; and this, in fact, the individual members of the Ministry promised their con stituents should be don...
FEMININE AFFECTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald and Northern Intelligencer — 25 September 1868
FEMININE AFFECTATIONS. I A. favourite form of feminine affectation among certain opposers of the prevalent fast type is in an intense womanliness, that makes one long for a little roughness just to take off the cloying excess of sweetness. This kind is generally found with large eyes, dark in the lids and i hollow in the orbit, by which a certain spiritual expression is given to the face, a certain look of being consumed by the hidden fire of lofty thought, that is very effective. It does not "de stroy the effectiveness that the real cause of the. darkened lids and cavernous orbits is most pro bably internal disease, when not antimony; eyes of this sort stand for spirituality and loftiness of thought and intense womanliness of nature, and, as all men are neither chemists nor doctors, the simulation does quite as well as truth. The main characteristic of these women is self-consciousness,. They live before a moral mirror, and pass "their time in attitudinizing to what they think the ...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. On Friday, in answer to Mr. Everard, tlie Treasurer said tliat the Chief Justice had applied for twelve months' leave of absence, but it had not yet been granted. The adjourned debate on the Ministerial land resolutions and Mr. Townsend's amendment was then resumed, the other notices and orders of the day having been postponed for the purpose. Mr. Dunn first spoke, his remarks being to the effect that before voting for the amendment he should like to know what policy the present Opposition would put forth if the amendment was carried. He did not like taking things on trust. Whilst he should probably have to go with the Government, he did not like their reso lutions. Mr- Boucaut was not anxious to bring about a crisis at present, though he was not afraid of the duties and responsibilities of office; therefore, though he did not approve of the resolutions, he would still give the Ministry an opportunity to introduce a Bill on the question. Mr. Hughes, though he coul...

SADDLEWURTH. rFrom oar own Correspondent.] September 23,1868. A bazaar of fancy and useful articles was lield I on Wednesday last and two following days, in : beloalf of the mission house.
