ADELAIDE LOCAL COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 2. [Before Messrs. H. E. Downer, S.M., L. Glyde, J.P., and W. Rogers, J.P.] FULL JURISDICTION (CIVIL). DOWLAND v. EWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 May 1866
ADELAIDE LOCAL COURT. | Wednesday, May 2. [Before Messrs. H. E. Downer, S.M., L. Glyde. J.P.. and W. Rogers, J.P.] FCIX JURISDICTION (CIVIL). DOWLAXD V. EVTEBS. This was an appeal against the decision of the Local Court at Port Elliot, under the Masters and Servants Act. Mr. Stow, Q.C., appeared for the appellant, and Mr. Ingleby for the respondent. It appeared that an order was made that the appellant should pay the respondent one week's wages in lieu of notice to quit. Mr. Stow submitted that such an order was im proper on several grounds, and amongst others that flip pvirienr'.p. disclosed no cQntnw.t Iwtvir&p-n tVip nnr ties, nor did the order itself show that the relation of master and servant existed between the parties. Mr. Ingleby, in reply, argued that strict formality was not required in such cases, and that the Court | would assume that the order had been regularly made. After considerable deliberation the Court decided in favor of the appellant. His Honor the pre...

FARMERS' PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 May 1866
FARMERS' PROSPECTS. The agricultural statistics of the colony for the past harvest, which have just heen published by the Government Statist, present an un pleasant picture for our fanners' contemplation. A falling off in the average of the season's yield of wheat of 2^ bushels per acre as com pared with the previous year, and, notwith standing the increased acreage under crop, of --65.703 bushels on the total produce ae com pared with 1SG4-5, and of 1,101,073 bushels as compared with 1SC3-4, is a serious reverse for the agricultural interest to sustain. And it is especially unfortunate that it should occur simultaneously with the unprecedented large arrivals of bread-stuffs from South America and California and with the remarkable increase in the yield of Victoria. As an ordinary rule, when yields are low prices rise, and the farmer may to a great extent depend upon retrieving his loss in the present case the deficiency of yield in this colony is more than covered by the increase i...

We publish a supplement gratuitously with our present number ; but notwithstanding this we are compelled, by the pressure on our space, to hold over our Adelaide correspondent's letter. The news from the metropolis is however exceedingly meagre The Gazelle of Thursday evening contains a pro clamation disbanding the volunteer force, and authorizing the enrolment of volunteers under the new Act. The new Southern ' Volunteer' districts are specified in our Adelaide telegram. 'We understand tbat the Government have aban doned the condition inserted in the specifications of the wharf extension at Goolwa that the timber used should necessarily be Swan River mahogany. It is now thought that timber suitable for the purpose may be obtained in the colony, and the alteration is, at all events, likely to ensure greater expedition iu the execution of the -work. A survey is being made of the road from Victor Harbor to the Inman Bridge, and we believe tenders will be almost immediately called for ...

COMMERCIAL, ? ♦ ? Southern Argus Office, Friday Evening, May 4, 1866. We have no change to note in local markets during the week. Holders of -wheat are still dis inclined to sell, and millers on the other hand are cautious in their purchases. We may quote wheat nominally at 6s., bat it is doubtful -whether pur chasers could be found for any quantity at that figure. No oats or barley are offering, and the prevail ing inactivity on the river prevents a demand. Some small quantities of potatoes have moved ! along the line during the week, but there is no alteration in prices. Hay remains at our last quotations, and the de mand is entirely confined to local consumption. Our Adelaide telegrams quote wheat at the close of to-day's business at 6s. 33. ; flour, £15 to £16 10s. Melbourne quotations -will ateo be found in our telegraphic columns, and further extraordinary large arrivals of Chilian produce are noted there.
