No title [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
THE ABORIGINALS.-On Saturday we observed three aboriginals armed with waddies and other im- plements of war, who had evidently been indulging in intoxicating liquors. It is not only very absurd, but absolutely wicked to supply these poor savages with such stimulants, as under their influence they become, when roused, perfect madmen, and frequently commit atrocities : the consequences of which were little imagined by those who, perhaps for a joke, supplied the liquor. ltoBBERY AT THE BOTANICAL GARDENS.-On the night of the 15th or 16th instant, the Botanical Gardens were visited by some dishonest person, and a valuable Bunya-Bunya tree, about a foot in height, carried off. The police have strict orders to keep a sharp look out, and should a further attempt be made Avejiope the delinquent will meet with Ids deserts. PORT ELLIOT BUILDING ASSOCIATION.-A prospectus has been handed to us of a proposed Building Association under the above title, by which it is proposed to raise a considerab...
AUBURN. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Thursday, July 17. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
AUBURN. [FROM OUR OASTS CORRESPONDENT.] Thursdav. Julv 17. The farmers of this district began seriously togmmble at the dryness of the season, but the heaA-y rains with Avhich we have been blessed for the last eight days and nights must have effectually stopped their complaints, if it b at all possible to satisfy them. This being an exclusively hilly district, the water has not much chance to penetrate the hardened natural surface, but whereA'er the ground is broken, it must have gone to a considerable depth. The unmetalled roads are all but impassible. The Auburn school was, after the long vacation, occasioned by the change of masters and the repairs of the chapel, in which the school at present is held, re-opened on Monday last, by Mr. Newlyn, with an attendance of 36 children, Avhich under the circum stances, must be considered very encouraging, espe- cially as the weather prevents the sending of children of a tender age any distance.
REGISTRATION OF DOGS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
REGISTRATION OF DOGS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-AVe are continually hearing complaints re- specting injuries inflicted by ferocious dogs, and I would call attention to the great number now suffered to run at large unregistered. The tlogs registered under the Act number about 70, and it is calculated those unregistered number 20 tirae3 that amount. The repeated complaints which have to be recorded of ferocious assaults by dogs upon men and animals, Avould in a great measure be prevented Avère a more stringent course pursued in cases where damage was committed by unregistered animals. AVhy not inflict a fine upon the owner for omitting to register ? we should then see whether greater caution would not be used on the part of the owners in allowing the animals the privilege of wan- dering the thoroughfares, for if found abroad, and the ownership traced, the pocket would suffer not only for the damage inflicted, but for omission to comply with the law. I am, &c., BITTE...

POLICE COURT-ADELAIDE. SATURDAY, JULY 17. [Before Mr. S. Beddome, P.M.I DRUNK.-One elderly man incurred the penalty of 5s. for this offence. Hugh Doran, for being drunk and making a disturbance in Light-square, on Friday evening, was fined £1. CHARGE AND COUNTER CHARGE.-Margaret Clare was charged on the information. of Maria Scrivener, with an assault on Thursday, the 15th July. Tlie complainant informed the Bench that she lived in Currie-street with her husband, who b a carrier on the Port-road. About six months ago the defendant called her husband and herself very bad names. His Worship said the complainant must confine herself to the 15th of July. Mr. Scrivener wished to go back to the beginning, and show how the quarrel first com- menced. The Magistrates said that she might go back to the time of her birth. After she had told him whatrtook place on the 15th July, the plaintiff said that at the time she spoke of, the defendant tried to poison her friends minds against her by bad ...

LOCAL COURT—AUBURN. THURSDAY, JULY 15. [Before Messrs. J. W. Macdonald, S.M., W. W. Hughes, J.P., and James Masters, J.P.] CRIMINAL SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
LOCAL COURT-AUBURN. THURSDAY, JULY 15. [Before Messrs. J. W. Macdonald, S.M., W. W. Hughes, J.P., and James Masters, J.P.] CRIMINAL SIDE. Police-trooper Wilkinson brought up in custody Robert Graham, committed to this Court for having on the 18th of June last at Leasingham, stolen a cabbage-tree hat, of the value of £3, the property of Alexander Donaldson. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. The evidence was to the effect that the pro- secutor stopped on the night of the 18th June at th Leasingham Hotel. After tea three or four person entered, amongst whom was the prisoner. Shortl afterwards the landlady came in, and said a hors outside had fallen down ; all rushed out, the prosecutor in the hurry forgotting to put on his hat, which lay on a sofa close to where the prisoner had been sitting. On coming back the prosecutor missed it, and after enquiring and searching for it everywhere, it was not to be found. In the meantime, the prisoner had got on his horse, when the other persons prop...
RELIGIOUS STATISTICS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
RELIGIOUS STATISTICS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADA'ERTISER. Sir-I read the letter of your correspondent "Wail- ing," and could not help wondering what he was crying about. Ile says there has bean contending among the religious sects about the statistics. I am not aware of any such contention. A few persons connected with different churches have corrected manifest errors in the Government returns. Could not our lugubrious friend give these gentlemen credit for some better motive than jealousy of one another, and a desire to " catch as many stray fish as they could ?" Is it not just possible that a man may wish for accuracy in » return on a matter coining within Ids own cognizance, and that a love of truth may lead him to correct egregious blunders ? As I was not one of the " faith- ful contenders," I am not now on my own defence. I simply protest in tlie name of true religion and good feeling, agaiust this prevalent practice of imputing base motives to actions subsceptible of a charitabl...
HORTICULTURIST. THE VINEYARDS AND WINES OF CONSTANTIA. [We have been kindly favoured by Henry Evans, Esq., of Evandale, with the following paper on the wines of Constantia, written by the Hon.

HORTICULTURIST. THE VINEYARDS AND WINES OF CONSTANTIA. [We have been kindly favoured by Henry Evans, Esq., of Evandale, with the following paper on the wines of Constantia, written by the Hon. George Fife Anges, on the occasion of his recent visit to those far- famed vineyards.] &nbsp; During our visit to the Cape, in February, 1858, we devoted a day to visiting the Constantia estates, situated about fourteen miles from Cape Town ; being anxious to see them, not only on account of their uni- versal celebrity, but hoping to obtain some information relative to the manufacture of wines that might be useful in South Australia. Little Constantia was the first we approached; but, unfortunately, the proprietor, Mr. Vann Reimann, was from home, and not being able to see much there, or obtain much information, we first took a cursory survey of the place. Most of the soil is very poor, and the wine in consequence inferior, we tasted the kinds they had on hand, but they were made from ...
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
TITE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADA'ERTISEH. Sir-If there had been any grounds for the insinuation contained in the latter portion of the letter signed " Looker on," I should not have called attention to the matter, as silence would in all probability have been far more profitable. I do, however, mean seriously to assert that the land sold after the 1st of July, which clause 13 declares shall be subject to the provisions of this Act, are, not Avithstanding that clause, not "lands under the opera- tion of the Act," and in this assertion I am entirely borne out by the lion. J. H. Fisher. I am, &c., H. B. T. S. .Tidy 16, 185S. P.S. " M," in your paper of Wednesday last, has misquoted clause 98.
INCORPOREALITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
INCORPOREALITY. TO THE EDITOR OF TnE ADA'ERTISER. Sir-In the Weekly Chronicle of to-day, I observe a note at the foot of a letter signed "H. B. T. S.," in- viting communications tending to explain the meaning of the term "incoporeal messuage" used by Mr. Torrens, in Iii« Real Property Act. It seems to rae that the only property to which the term can appropriately be applied, is, that which embraces a very large proprietor}', and is known by the designation of '* a castle in the air." Mr. Torrens deserves the thanks of the community for enabling persons to obtain an indefeasible title to a property so expensively owned, and for providing ¡acilities for the sale and transfer of ii. I observe, also, that Mr. Torrens's Act is intended to give an indefeasible title to trees under and upon a castle in the air, and for enabling persons to sell this description of timber. I presume this has reference to som J species of property similar to the "hangin" gardens " of Babylon. I am not, howeve...
The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: MONDAY, JULY 19, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
lîttwtkr. ADELAIDE : MONDAY, JULY li), 1858. WHILST we are at ail times readj* and v\ illing to accord to the Police Force that moral support, in the discharge of their legitimate duties, to which, as an important element in the mechanism of Constitutional Government, they are entitled ; we cannot overlook the various reports that have reached us, in milich the Police are charged with indulging in arbitrary excesses in the perform- ance of their duties, more especially as directed against Licensed Publicans in the country dis- tricts. Besides, it is only a matter of common justice to the Police as a body, that individual cases of arbitrary exercise of authority should be made known and investigated, and not be al- lowed to cast reproach upon the Force as a whole. The character and efficiency of the Police will be certainly best maintained, when authority is judiciously and temperately exercised. We know that the Connniasioner of Police is justly proud of the character and efficiency...

COMMERCIAL. MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, July 16, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
COMMERCIAL. MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, July 16,1858. In ours of yesterday we omitted to note the sale of teas ex Mastill', and sugars ex Anna Dixon, by Messrs. Fox, Lloyd, & Co., at Wieksteed & Co.'s auction room. The sale was pretty brisk, as this description of produoe is now in better demand than other impor- tations. The figures realized were, for congous in boxes, 28s. 6d. and 29s. 6d. ; chests in indillerent con- dition, £6 8s. to £7 15s. Mauritius Sugars-Good yellows, £4-1 ; fine yellows, £15 to £46. The sale was a considerable one, and over £5,000 passed the hammer to buyers. Our attention has been called to the discrepancy that appears in the composition offered in Messrs. Marks & Co's estate, the English creditors appearing to accept 5s. in the pound, whilst the colonial credi- tors are offered 7s. Gd. The representative of the English creditors, however, is here, and if such arrangement meets his approval, the apparent disad- vantage to absent credit...

THE NORTHERN EXPLORATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-As Mr. Gregory and party may be daily ex- pected in Adelaide, many tradesmen would close their shops for a while to meet them en masse were any means taken to make it generally known throughout the city of his near approach. The Government could no1, I think, better employ tlie town erier, when it is known that they (the New South Wales expedition) are within an hour's march from the city ; and a good hearty hurrah would enliven the monotonous capital of South Australia. I am, Sir, &c., noxorn TO wnosi HOXOUR IS DUE.

SUNDAY TTADING.-For some time past, in pursuance of a resolution adopted by the butchers' in town, the trade (with one exception) have closed their shops on Sundays, and we are informed that it is intended shortly for a deputa- tion of those interested in the movement to wait upon the party who has not complied with the resolution, to induce him to yield, and thus make the practice universal in Adelaide, North Ade- laide, and the Port.
THE AGRICULTURIST. FARM FENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
THE AGRICULTURIST. FARM FENCES. J\ correspondent of the Otago Wit neis (New Zea- land) furnishes the following interesting and useful information on tlie subject of farm fences. In this colony, as well as in New Zealand, the subject is, or wry soon will be, one of tlie utmost importance, and, wc need, therefore, offer no apology for thus in- troducing the subject. " Living fences may be com- prised under the heads of Hawthorn, white and black ; Holly, Hornbeam, Privet, Furze, Elm, and Sweet Briar. Tlie White Thorn, (Cralregus OxyacanthaJ, or If awl horn, is the best of all living hedges ; of rapid growth, durable, and will flourish well, except on gravelly soils. There are several modes of planting this fence ; either on a bank with a single ditch, or between a elouble ditch, or on the level land. In the first case, a ditch is excavated, three or four feet wide at the top, one at the bottom, and three deep. The turf are laid along the inner edge, grass sides down ward^backod Avith a...
THE WAR SPIRIT OF ENGLAND. [From the Times.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 19 July 1858
THE WAR SPIRIT OF ENGLAND. ]From the Times.'] j The facility consists in our perfect security, in the j good opinion of our own justice and peacebleness, and the intention which Ave ascribe toourselvesof nevergoing ! to war if we can help it. Having giving ourselves full credit for not going to war without very good reason, I and not being aware of any decided preference for i Avar, Ave sit down and let things take their course. But the course of things, when they are let alone, is always I towards war. The truth b, that we are really a war 1 like people, which b a circumstance of danger ; and, ' what is still more dangerous, we are nota military peo i pic. This may bs seem at first sight only a bundle of paradoxes, but, on the least consideration, it will be found the plain truth. No nation delights so much in war, in hallies, and sieges-the more horrible the better : in all that is manly and heroic, according to the old classic types. Stories of hideous suffering and hardship have...

TnE INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH.-We regret to announce that the intercolonial telegraph will not be officially opened to-day as arranged, diffi- culties not anticipated having presented them- selves. We are still doomed to disappointment. It will be remembered that the Governors of tlie two provinces, Sir Hemy Barkley and Sir Richard Graves MacDonuell, had arranged to inaugurate" on this day the opening of the line by an interchange of official messages ; but, like everything else human, it is beyond our control, and we must wait with patience. From the Superintendent of Telegraphs we learn that the arrangements for open- ing the line are not sufficiently advanced to permit its being effected to-day, as previously announced. The Victorian operator arrived at Mount Gambier on Friday last, but the instru- ments and stores were not to hand up to Saturday Jast, Communication was had with Mount Gam bier several times on Saturday, but the signals ara not so satisfactory as could be desired ; ...
