VICTORIA. INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH. [From our General Correspondent.] Melbourne, September 3. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 4 September 1858

VICTORIA. INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH [From *nr General Correspondent] Melbourne, September 3. We have news from Sydney to the 31st ult. Best flour rules at £22 ; seconds at £20 : wheat. 8s. to 9s. ; bran. 2s. The passing of the Electoral Law Bill in the House of Assembly, and the resignation of Mr Parker, constitute the chief items of political intelligence. The publication of the Sydney Empire has been brought to a stand still. A message has been submitted by the Governor to the House of Assembly, inviting an appropria- tion of £'50,000 for establishment of an indepen- dent mail service. According to the Sydney Motoning Herald, the gold discoveries at Port Curtis promise to sur- pass anything yet known. NELSON, August 11.-Flour rules at from £20 to £21 ; wheat, 7s. 6d. to 8s. ; oats, 5s. 6d. to 6s. 6d. An important discovery of quartz has been made at Collingwood and Brandy Point.

ARTESIAN WELLS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 4 September 1858

ARTESIAN WELLS. To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-It is not often that a newspaper correspondent has the honour of seeinga memberof theParliamentcoinciding in his viewg for the development of the country, as such persons are generally considered so crotchetty, that writ- ing in the newspaper is their only chance of publicity ; it is therefore with some satisfaction that I perceive the notice of motion given by Mr. Macdermott for the 8th inst. It can hardly be supposed that the Ministry, with a large sum in hand, will refuse to do something towards such a reproductive work ; we will, therefore, assume that some steps are to be taken in the measure. I would, therefore, venture to suggest that, in the absence of any thoroughly qualified geologist f-o-n the colony, the f illowing would not be a very injudicious mode of pro- ceeding, viz :-To have a tracing made of the ceunty of Adelaide and its immediate neighbours, from the county maps in the Surveyor-General's office, on which shou...

To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 4 September 1858

To the Editor of the ADVERTISER. Sir-It is to be regretted that when any one affects to be a reformer, and like " Civis" rushes into print, that he should not previously make himself fully acquainted with 'he subject upon wh'cb. he writes. Feeling somewhat interested in the proceedings of the Trinity Boiri, I invariably read their reports. I am, therefore, induced to refer " Civis" to the minutes ofthat body published in the Register ofthe 28th July last, from which it appears that "Mr. Douglas is not Harbour Mas-er, and that when he was appointed as Collector of Customs he not only resigned that office (which was the cause of Mr. Quin's promotion), but he also tendered hi~ resignation as Master of the Trinity Board. To this latter post he was re-elected by the Wardens. It is generally known that the Collector of Customs is not allowed to receive fees for attending public Boards, conse- quently his services as Master of the Trinity Board are gratuitous. > It will likewise be seen...

THEKE are certain questions which, though they may be of doubtful issue, are notwithstanding sufficiently attractive in the eyes of the community to ensure perpetual reproduction. Such a ques. tion for a long time was the problem as to whether gold did or did not exist in large quan- tities in this province. Such a question (and one ^hich still lives in the public mind), is, whether coal does or not exist here. Such a question is. further-whether the interior of Australia con- tains or doe3 not contain fertile and available country ; and finally, such a question is whether camels may or may not be advantageously intro- duced here. "We say thatthesequestions areof a class that the public will not allow to be permanently set aside except after actual experiment made or trial given. It is nothing that a portion of the community are dogmatically negative. It is nothing tnat these negative views may ultimately prove to be cor- rect. There may be no gold, and no coal beneath the surface ;...

AÎÎ important public document has just been submitted by Ministers for the consideration of Parliament and the country. It consists of a report by the Commissioner of Public Works on tlie various Government undertakings executed during the half-year ended December, 1857, in- cluding those of the Central Road Board ; also an account of receipts and expenditure by various District Councils and Corporations. The report treats of the various public works of the half year above specified, and as the subject is of great practical moment we shall offer no apology for devoting to it a fair portion of our space. The Harbor operations are first referred to, the capability of the new steam-dredge and barges being most satisfactorily demonstrated. This powerful macliine has proved itself capable of ripping up the limestone crust, in some eases, to a depth of three feet. During the last half year of 1857, as much as 71,426 tons of silt were raised, at once improving the harbour, and ren- dering ...

The Rivertonians were on the tiptoe of expectancy and delight at the importance which this meeting had assumed amongst the neighbouring districts, but more especially in then- own beautiful ham- let, so naturally picturesque, with the Gilbert river mean- dering around, the valley itself as level as a bowling green, and everything and everybody dressed in the gayest attire to do full honor to the event. Agriculturists from all sides were there, and a few of the fair sex also graced the proceedings by their presence. The police from Kapunda were in attendance, but although some hundreds of persons were present, their services were not required on the ground.
