No title [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 July 1858

THE question of Government Officers, other than Responsible Ministers, holding seats in the Par- liament of this colony is one of upon which before long, the decision of the local Legislature will have to be taken. It is a delicate question, in- volving personal considerations, and affecting the position of public men in both Houses, but this is no reason why its consideration should be   delayed. It is, also, a question not altogether free from political difficulty neither on this   ground do we think it ought to be shelved. The Constitution Act under which we live contains as its central and most essential principle the political doctrine of Responsible Government, and it is the duty of the journalist to investigate the tendency of every practice by which the respon-     sibility of the government to the people may be affected, whether for better or for worse.     The question for the country to decide is this :— Ought salaried officers of th...

THE OVERLAND TELEGRAPH.—It was gene- rally believed, towards the close of last week, that the Melbourne and Adelaide Telegraph would be opened this day to the public, in which case we should have had the pleasure of identify- ing our first publication with the first public use of the connecting wires. In spite, however, of the delays of ordinary locomotion, we have beaten the electric fluid, have carried on our Melbourne correspondence by means of ordinary steam, and have thus anticipated the telegrams of Mr. Todd. We may inform our readers that we have made arrangements with the telegraph   authorities, and also with a competent gentleman in Melbourne, for the transmission of all neces- sary information.

BUILDING SOCIETIES.—We are informed that a Building Society is now in the course of formation upon principles somewhat different from those already in exist- ence, the object being to equalize more completely the profit between the borrowers and investors. Tables have been calculated based upon this principle, and we are also informed that the Society will be adapted as a deposit bank, so that parties can invest moneys for short periods to bear a fair rate of interest, such sums to be withdrawn at periods previously agreed upon, or under defined notice. It is also intended that all securities for advances be effected under the new Real Property Act, and the draft rules are now in the hands of Mr. Torrens, who has undertaken with the aid of the solicitors to the commis- sion, to perfect them for this purpose as far as possible. SPORTING.—SAILING MATCH AT MILANG.— A match has been made between tho owners of the cutters Coquette and Lady Macdonald for £50 a side, to sail round a five m...

DEDICATION OF ST. FRANCIS XAVIER'S CATHEDRAL CHURCH, VICTORIA-SQUARE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 July 1858

DEDICATION OF ST. FRANCIS XAVIER'S CATHEDRAL CHURCH, VICTORIA-SQUARE. The solemn ceremony of the dedication of this new and beautiful Cathedral Church took place at 11 o'clock a.m. yesterday, in presence of many hundreds of our fellow-citizens of every denomination. The dedicatory service was read by the Very Rev. Michael Ryan, Vicar-General of the Diocese, assisted   by the Revs. J. Smyth, Carew, Russell, O'Brien, Mount Barker; Rowe, Gawler Town; Fallan, Kapunda; Hughes, Willunga; with the Jesuit Fathers Tappe- nier and Paulhuber, of Seven Hill's College, Clare. The ceremony commenced with a procession around the walls of the church, during which the clergy chanted the litanies, and, returning to the altar, recited the prayers prescribed for the ceremony. The procession was again formed, in which the celebrant blessed the walls of the sacred edifice and returned to the altar a second time, when commenced the high mass of the day with deacon, sub-deacon, and assistants....

MR. EDWARD BATHURST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 July 1858

MR. EDWARD BATHURST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir—Hearing that considerable astonishment has been expressed at my having become surety, on Satur- day last, for Mr. Edward Bathurst, and that inferences unfavourable to myself have been drawn, I beg to state that my principal reason for incurring such a liability was to afford Mr. Bathurst an opportunity of providing for the wants of a wife and family of seven children, who have for some time past suffered from destitution. Another reason was, that I was certainly led to believe, from Mr. Bathurst's statement to me, that he had the sympathies of the managing director of your company ; and although opposed to anything like sycophancy I think a subordinate may, without laying himself open to such a charge, stretch a point to meet the wishes of his principals. These statements I have since ascer- tained were not warranted by facts. My acquaintance with Mr. Bathurst arose from his employment upon a paper with which I was con- necte...

ASKING QUESTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 July 1858

ASKING QUESTIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir—At the commencement of your career it is but fair to your subscribers that they should be informed of your opinions on subjects of general interest, I have therefore forwarded a few questions taken from an American newspaper which I shall feel obliged by your answering in your first number, as the result of your replies will materially affect the question as to the countenance myself and friends may give to your paper. The following are the questions referred to :— "Are you for taking the duty off tea ?" "What's the age of the Pope ?" "When will the next Good Friday be ?" "Are you pretty well off for soap ?" "Oblige by stating the longest night ?"   "Did Shelly make a will?"   "Mr Heedetur, Sur, who von the fight.   The Nobbler or Brummagem Bill ?" "Can a policeman legally knock me down, If I ask him the way to the ferry ?"   "Who wrote the life of Grimaldi, the Clown ?" &a...

THE ECHUNGA GOLD-FIELD.—During the last few days we have received very cheering intelligence from the Echunga gold-fields. Nuggets of fair pro- portions and in tolerable numbers had rewarded the exertions of the diggers, who now amount to between 100 and 200. A party of three, after an absence from town of a fortnight, remitted gold to the value of upwards of £17, and from this source we learn that the majority of those who choose to steadily apply themselves to the pursuit are making considerably more than they could realize by their labour at any other occupation. VICTORIA THEATRE.—On Saturday night, the performances consisted of the second and third acts of the operatic drama, Guy Mannering ; and considering the difficulties of the piece, and its varied require- ments, it was got through very respectably. Miss Carry Nelson as Julia Mannering, Miss Sara as Lucy Bertram, and Miss Marie as Meg Merriles, sustained their parts with spirit and clever- ness ; their singing was rapturous...

IN INSOLVENCY. [Before the full Court.] [In consequence of the great influx of advertisements we are prevented publishing at length the last week's proceedings in this Court as we had prepared for and intended to do; but as they contain some decisions respecting the operation of the new Insolvent Act with reference to its application to cases instituted under the old law, and also with reference to the powers of the Supreme Court over the Court of Insolvency, we think it proper to give at least a brief statement of the principal cases.] WEDNESDAY, JULY 7.

Re BATHURST. Edward Bathurst, an imprisoned insolvent, came   up on a writ of habeas corpus to be heard on his appeal by petition against an order of the Commis- sioner of Insolvency, under which he was sentenced to six months' imprisonment. This insolvent had been arrested on a warrant under the Summary Jurisdiction Act at the suit of Mr. Futcher, of Rundle-street, and brought up to the ...

LOCAL COURT. FULL JURISDICTION. SATURDAY, JULY 10. [Before Mr. Mann, Mr. Nicholls, and Mr. Beddome.] POW[?]LL v. LAMB. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 12 July 1858

LOCAL COURT. FULL JURISDICTION.   SATURDAY, JULY 10. [Before Mr. Mann, Mr. Nicholls, and Mr. Beddome.] POWELL v. LAMB.     Action for £11. 12s. 3½d., balance of goods sold by plaintiff to defendant. The goods were sold at auc- tion under the usual conditions. Defendant objected that the plaintiff was incapa- citated to appear in that Court to recover a claim, in- asmuch as at the time of the sale he was insolvent. Mr. Mann would not allow the objection, and said that if he was disposed to go into it, which he was not, he could not do so, as the defendant had not pleaded the incapacity of plaintiff.   Verdict for plaintiff. BELL v PRICE   Mr. Ingleby applied to have the case adjourned for a few minutes, as the defendant, had not arrived in Court but would be there shortly. Mr. Andrews objected. He did so as the defen- dant was summoned under judgment Mr. Mann said he had no power to adjourn except with consent. Mr. Ingleby, to make ...

JULY THE TWELFTH !—Our readers are aware that it was originally our intention to issue the first number of the South Australian Advertiser on the 1st instant ; the delay, however, in the erection of the necessary machinery and the im- portation of entirely new type, &c, from a neigh- bouring colony, compelled us reluctantly to post- pone our first issue till the 12th. We find we are not the only journalists who have selected this date for a first appearance, as exactly fifteen years ago the first number of the first daily paper in Victoria was issued, and after a career of seven years was purchased by the proprietors of the Argus, with which it is now incorporated.

TANUNDA. SATURDAY. JUX,Y 3. Present-Messrs. Henry Scherwder (Chairman), A. Fredler, sen., L. R. Treuer, and Christian Keppner. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. The Clerk reported having collected rates to the amount of £174 10s. lod. The Clerk was instructed to prepare a list of the ratepayers in arrear with rates on this year's assessment, and to lay the same before the Council at their next meeting. The repairs of the road at Hallett's Valley were ordered to commence again-Mr Hart having accepted to form io chains' as per tender-Mr B. Morriss to enter into a contract for some posts near Jacob's Creek. The labourer of the Council (who is in constant employ for three.months) was ordered to go to Krondorff, to remove several stumps, and to mend some drains, *c. The Council approved of several repairs proposed by the Clerk as most needed to be done by the said labourer, and expressed satis- faction with the adopted plan of having a man continually on the roads ...

COURT OF INSOLVENCY. MONDAY, JULY 12. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 July 1858

COURT OF INSOLVENCY. MONDAY, JULY 12. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] JAMES TOBITT, of Nuriootpa, miller, came up for his second hearing. As he had not filed his schedule, the only business that could be gone into was the prooving of some debts, after which the case was ad- journed to Monday, August 5, at 12 o'clock. R. G. SYMONDS, an imprisoned debtor, was brought up for his first hearing. He was not prepared with   his schedule, and, in explanation, stated that he wished to make an arrangement to which his creditors would   agree. He was under the impression that it could be done in that Court. The Commissioner said that he could take no no- tice of any arrangement at that stage of the proceed- ings. The last clause provided that" after adjudica- tion, if three-fourths of the creditors who had proved consented to an arrangement, it could be done, and the case would then be out of that Court. Insolvent asked for protection. The Commissioner said be could n...

THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 July 1858

THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOB OP THE ADVEBTISEB. Sir-On Friday last I wrote to the editor of the Register as follows : " Sir - In a leading article in this morning's paper, ' headed 'The Real Property Act,' appears the follow- ing statement :-' Titles under it are guaranteed and indefeasible.' This, however, is not so, as, in the event of a certificate of title being obtained by fraud, all transfers subsequent to the fraud would be void, or at least voidable ; and therefore, in the event of fraud, an innocent and bona fide holder for value might be ejected from the property. " I am, Sir, &c., "H. B. T. S." This letter, however, has not been published ; and as the statement in the Register might mislead many, I hope you will allow me to correct it. I am, Sir, &c., H. B. T. S. P.S.-Can any of your readers inform me as to the probable cost of, and process to be adopted in, bring- ing, under the provisions of the Real Property Act, a piece of land. The land consis...

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, 10th July, 18[?]8. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 July 1858

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, lOth July, 1858 Telegrams have been expected the last three days on the Melbourne line, but as yet arrangements have not reached sufficient perfection to admit of their transmission. As it is intended to make a terminus station at Mount Gambier for forwarding through messages, the public may soon look for the long post- poned pleasure of telegraphing to both the neighbour ing colonies. Wheat has been dropping in very regularly for the last three weeks, and has declined during this about 3d. per bushel, though at lowered rates farmers show an inclination to hold back. The weather, which has been unseasonably dry for some time, has been in favour of supplies reaching town, but we hear great complaints of its effects on the sown crops, which will, with any continuance of such dry winds as we have had of late, be seriously injured. In flour there is no quotable alteration in price from what has been ruling during the last month ; a few transactions aro taking pl...

ALBION BUILDING SOCIETY. - The last half yearly report of the above Society has been forwarded to us, by which it appears that the total receipts and forfeitures to the 5th of April, 1858, amount to £2850 19s. 11d. There have been 33 shares sold at an average premium of £19 14s. 2d. ; the net amount of advances upon 15 1/2 shares already secured by mortgage, is £1,201 5s.; and the then present balance at the banker's, £1,432 13s. 9d. a total of   £157 2s. has been expended in preliminary and cur- rent expenses, including £15 for legal charges ; £22 have been repaid upon withdrawn shares ; and the balance remaining in the Secretary's hands appears to be £37 19s 2d. COOL AS A CUCUMBER.-Unquestionably it is highly desirable that gentlemen to whom the ad- ministration of justice is entrusted should be as cool as a cucumber, but we must protest against being frozen to death when appliances are at hand to afford the luxury of a cheerful fire. The Police Court is not the warme...

THE INSOLVENT ACT.-Very considerable doubt exists in the minds of some members of the legal profession as to the validity of the pro- ceedings under the Insolvent Act during the last two months. Our legislators in framing the Act did not contemplate the possibility of there being fewer than two daily papers published in Adelaide, and hence the Act expressly provides that the advertisements convening meetings in Insolvent Estates and some other purposes in connection with matters in Insolvency, shall be inserted in two daily papers, published in Ade- laide. The establishment of this journal has re- moved all difficulty in complying with the Act ; but as during the last two months only one daily paper has been published in Adelaide, it is clear that the provisions of the Act cannot have been complied with, and hence the doubt as to the legality of the proceedings.

OÜK PUBLICATION.-We exceedingly regret that in consequence of an accident happening to our machinery, we were unable yesterday to publish as early as we had hoped to have done. We trust, however, that we shall not only receive the forgiveness of the public for any disappointment we may have then occassioned them, but that for a few days hence, some measure of indulgence may be accorded to us. The course of new machinery, like that of new lovers, "never did   run smooth ; "and all we can say is, that if at   first our movements are a little irregular, we shall do everything in our power to perfect our arrange- ments as quickly as possible.
