CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the MORNING CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
-v CORK ESPONDEN/CE. To the Editor of the MOBNING CHRONICLE. j Sin,-I write for the pu-pose of callingyour attention to a letter which appeared in the ! limes last week, not for the purpose of defend 'ing S;r IT. Young's Government, for that has doubtless keen bad enough, but to ßhow the very great want of judgment in writing such a letter, calculated to do much more harm than good to the cause it pretends to advocate. The Í' Governor's most stern opposers do not approve of such an extremely injudicious mode of pro . cedure. It teems with a flippant, unbecoming, personal, and mould be contempt against his Excellency, far too obtrusive to be real ; for that is silent ard seeks not to show itself in such a virulent manner. Old Hand's 1 tter is . somewhat like a forced smile, the deceit and hollowness of nhich are always too painfully apparent. The substance apart from the style, is pass- , able as far as it goes, but it is neither just nor ¡ fair to throw the blame of any iîl-conseque...

The Morning Chranicle. Adelaide; Thursday, July 8, 1852. THE OCEAN STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
Adelaide ; Tliursday, July 8, 1852. THE OCEAN STEAMERS. BY the kindness of Mr William Harvey a passenger on board of tho Mary Harrison, wo aro enabled to give our readers the fullest information respecting the line of Screw Steamers, the first of which was ex I peeled to reach the Capo of Good Hope about the 7th of July. It appears that the Australian had been sent to Glasgow for her engine, but 6uch was the press of work, that even Mr Napier could not get them ready in time. As wo announced lately, therefore, the Aus- tralian would not leave Plymouth till Jone 3rd. Mr Harvey says that the Clyde en- gineers were all engaged with iron vessels, and only one wooden ship was on the stocks. The following is a copy of a document which Mr Harvey procured from the agents of the Steam Company at Plymouth. We believe no other copy has reached the co- lony : The Australian Boral .Mail Steam Navigation Company's Line of Iron Screw Steamers, for Sydney, calling attila Oa; e of Good Hope, King Ge...

EXTRACTS. THE COMFORT OF POLYGAMY. - One John W. Jones, who has been sentenced to the Kentucky penitentiary for living with two wives, excuses himself by saying that xhen he had one she fought him, but when he got two they fought each other. A LOTO NOSE.-Napoleon used to say " Strange as it may appear, when I want any good head-work done, I choose a man ?with a long nose. His breathing is bold and free, and his brain as well as his lungs and heart, cool and clear. In roy observa- tion of men, I have almost invariably found a long nose »nd a long head to go toge- ther." WARM, WARMER, WARMEST.-A house with a wife is often warm enough ; a house with a wife and her mother is rather warmer than any spot on the known globe; a house with two mothers-in-law is so ex- cessively hot that it can be likened to no place on earth at all, but one must go Inwpr fnr a (simile.

NEW SOUTÜ WALES. Th J Legislative Couneil met on the 8th of June Tho Governor's speech was almost throughout congratulatory. The crops had been goo l. The discoveries of gold had bein satisfactory. Both the laud and general revenues were nourishing. The former showed an increase of j£O0,0'K), and the latter of £29,000 over the former year. A loaa of JÊIOO/IOO had been raised. Thc Government had got a premium for the debenture?, ani by taking advantage of the low rate of Exchange in remitting, they saved nearly the first year's interest. The Governor bad asked for three ships per month. A new Billen Customs Duties was about ti be introduced.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
VICTORIA. In our last we were able only to give a very meagre report from the great gold co- lony : We observe a rather singular article in the Melbourne Morning Herald, objecting to the public funds being applied in fur- therance of emigration. Its reason is that it expects immense multitudes out at their own expense, everything that public funds can do will be a drop in the bucket, and all would go off to the diggings. We certainly think our contemporary is greatly in error. &nbsp; Only a certain proportion of any population &nbsp; will go to the diggiugs, and of course only a proportion of immigrants. No journalist more bitterly than our contemporary com- plains of the dearness of articles caused by a want of labor, and therefore, none should promote more heartily every efficient means of introducing it. We certainly think however, that an end henceforth must be put to eleemosynary emigration. That system was proposed on the footing that the emigrants would be lab...
THE OVERLAND ESCORT. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
THE OVERLAND ESCORT. WE have very great pleasure in announc- ing that the Overland Escort under charge of Mr Commissioner Tolmer, after under- going many hardships and dangers by flood and field, arrived on Tuesday with 28,000 ounces of gold. Instead of our leading matter, we give the fullest account of proceedings at the diggings, as given in the Melbourne Herald, by that ever indefatiga- ble person, Mr Bryce Ross: &nbsp; I have again the pleasure of forwarding you an account of another large meeting of the South Australians, opposite, as usual, the Herald office door. The meeting was to have taken place on Thursday, 10th June last, at 3 o'clock, to meet Mr Commissioner Tolmer on his return from Bendigo, with his gold and escort, but such was the fearful state of the roads between here and Bendigo, that Mr Tolmer did not reach Forest Creek until Satur- day. I may here state that the quantity of gold offered to Mr Tolmer amounted to about four tons ! but he had not the physi...
LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
LOCAL NEWS. OVERLAND ESCORT.-The Gold Escort have; we think, done their work in a style which must command universal admiration and the gratitude of this community. They accom- plished the journey to Forest Creek in 19 &nbsp; days, and having left on the 14th ultimo, the return was effected in 22 days, which consider- ing the season and the dreadful country, is an astonishing performance. The cart con- veying the gold was lost in Deep Creek, 20 miles west of Forest Creek, and the gold had to he made up in packs and carried on horse- back. For days the men had to travel on foot up to the knees in water, and having no tents, nothing more comfortless can be conceived. Fortunately the party kept their health, and no farther accident occurred. But the men &nbsp; suffered severe loss by the tear and wear of clothes: and having to pay exorbitant prices for necessaries at the diggings, we con- sider they are very badly remunerated for their exertions and hardships. We hear t...
POLICE COURT. Monday, July 5. [Before H. R. Wigley, Esq] [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
POLICE COURT. Monday, July 5. [Bfore H. R. Wigley, Esq ] James Somerville, was charged with stealing a bag containing groceries and clothing from the dray of Alfred Baker, at the Kangaroo Inn. The prosecutor had gore in for a glass of ale, and on coming out discovered that the bag had been taken. He came back to town and gave information. Meantime the prisoner had placed the bag in the bar of the inn, and was afterwards found at his own house drunk. He said he had done it as a lark. Remanded till this day, that tho barmaid might &nbsp; attend. Bail allowed. John Hart, Esq., M.L.C., waa charged by the Inspector of Nuisances with riding on the footpath, in Roper-street. The witnesses were Alderman Sherwin and the Inspector of Nuisances. Captain Hart disputed the evidence, and brought forward a witness to show that there was no footpath, and that the road was impassable and dangerous for horsemen. Captain Hart also pleaded that the street was a private one. His Worship found th...
THE VICTORIA DIGGINGS Hindmarsh, near Adelaide, 1st July, 1852. TO ABSENT FRIENDS. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 8 July 1852
THE VICTORIA DIGGINGS Hindmarsh, near Adelaide, 1st July, 1852. TO ABSENT FRIENDS. No. II. Per favour of the " MORNING CHRONICLE." In my letter of yesterday, I promised to treat of the gold fields. The morning after our arrival I and my brother went out to look for "mates." We had agreed to work in different parties so as to in- crease our chance of success, as the odds were that one of us would certainly do something, and we could club our gains and divide at the end of our &nbsp; undertaking. We soon fell in with "mates," (per- fect strangers to us) and commenced working that morning. I agreed to pay out of my future gains £5 5s for a fourth share of the tent, tools, and food possessed by the men I joined and something to repay them for the labour they had expended in sinking the hole they were then taking down, which was ? by 9 feet on the surface, and 15 feet deep. They had been at work a fortnight, and had seen specks of gold at intervals, and about a quarter of an hour...
