RED KANGAROO. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 July 1858

RED KANGAROO. TO THE EDITOR OF TJTE ADVERTISER. Sir-A correspondent, under the signature ot ""Delta," has taken upon himself to write a review of this inimitable production, which has lately astonished the Australian world ; many of your readers are al a loss, however, to conjecture in what respect that letter claims to be entitled to rank as a review, from the simple fact that "Delta"' lias not even glanced at the literary merits of the legend under consideration, which merits, being neither few nor small, deserve something more than a mere passing notice to render that poem and its author immortal. In considering this work, and drawing attention to any particular portions, the difficulty lies in selection ; the beauties being so numerous, and our poet having laid fields ol' poesy under tribute seldom visited by ordinary mor- tals. The muse of this writer is not bound by the trammels of rhyme, metre, and blank verse ; his soul rises above all* such fetters, which may, by general co...

CITY FOOTPATHS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 July 1858

CITY FOOTPATHS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-In the Corporation Ordinance, JNo. 11, 1849, cap. 89, I find that the Council are " empowered and required from time, when, and as often, and in such manner as they shall think proper and necessary, to order and cause the several streets, roads, ways, &c, &c, and each and every of them respectively, to be paved, flagged, macadamised, or otherwise constructed, improvedfrepaired or amended, supported and kept in good order and condition, with such materials as the said Council shall think proper," &c. Now I must give the Corporation credit for the in- tention to cam* out the above recited clause, having seen a few weeks since a number of men employed in varions parts of the city, spreading sand over the very dirty footpaths, Avith the object, no doubt, of render- ing the said fool paths passable during the remainder of the winter : but, alas, for good intentions, 1 find that now the footpaths are as bad in ma...

IN MEMORIAM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 July 1858

IN MEMORIAM. TO TUÉ EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-Like many others I felt a great interest in the fate of Mr. Coulthard, and should have been glad if cir- cumstances had permitted my examining his canteen ; but on seeing the sketch of it in the Advertiser to- day, a thought at once occurred to me that we might still have the satisfaction of gratifying one sight, if not one touch. I am perhaps behindhand in the wish, as there may already be a daguerreotype of it 5 but if such is the case, I should like to see it, and hope it may be shown in some public place, that all may be able to do so. I am sure there are many in the colony who would like to have a copy of it, as his fate will ever be remem- bered and recorded as one of the sad events in our colonial history. I have several times beeu asked the question, and as I cannot, perhaps you will answer it-" Had Mr. Coulthard a wife or family ?" If so, South Australia will not, I balicvc, be wanting in rendering every sympathy and assista...

MEASLES—SHIP UTOPIA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 July 1858

MEASLES - SHIP UTOPIA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-A rumour is afloat throughout Adelaide and the Port that the last emigrant ship, the Utopia, had, during her voyage from the mother-country, several cases of measles on board, and that one case trans- pired three days prior to her anchoring in the port of Adelaide. If this be true, the earlier an investigation takes place by the Government into such irregularities the better. It is a well known fact that to allow any vessel to enter into a thickly-populated district with contagion on board would be only through the greatest neglect on the part of the Health Officer. I hope that such is not the case, and that this letter may either be contradicted, or if affirmed by some person thoroughly acquainted with the facts, that the Government authorities may make a searching enquiry. Yours, &c, JUNTUS MEDICUS.

WILLUNGA PLOUGHING MATCH. THURSDAY, JULY 22. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 July 1858

WILLUNGA PLOUGHING MATCH. THURSDAY, JULY 22. This event took place yesterday (Thursday), upon a piece of ground belonging to Mr. Stevens. The quality of the land selected for tho match was not equally good, some portions being in fair condition, and others very objectionable on account ol' drynct-s. The difficulty of the Committee increases every j ear in the selection of land, as this is now the eleventh ploughing match, and very soon no new ground will bo available. On previous occasions, the ploughing matches have included McLaren Vale and Aldinga, but since the division of the district, several matches have been resolved upon, and this event represents J the Willunga district alone. The competition yester- day was open to all the colony, and there were some some examples of very superior ploughing. The crops in this district are in a backward state, the lateness of the rains having prevented farmers from ploughing as early as usual. The ground was so hard for the want of the nec...

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: FRIDAY, JULY 23, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 23 July 1858

?jjr Iknliser. ADELAIDE : FRIDAY, JULY 23, 1858. AVAILING themselves, as they have a right to do, of our " Open Column," a number of correspon- dents have addressed us on the subj jet of Mr. Torrens's Act, the majority of those persons being opposed to the mca-uire. "We do not wish, however, that the insertion of those letters, or that our silence on the subject, should be inter- preted as significant on our part of hostility to the Act. On tlie contrary, we consider ourselves ' to be staunch Law Reformers, and shall feel it to be our duty to assist Mr. Torrens in every way we can, consistently with our duly to other classes of the community. We unite with the Hon. J. H. Fisher-who, though opposed to Mr. Torrens's Act, is friendly to the object which that Act contemplates-in urging forward the necessity of law reform ; but w hilo some law reformers woidd effect their purpose by rcuder ¡ ing Mr. Torrens's Act unworkable, we shall take 1 an opposite course, and lend our influence to I...

SPURIOUS COIN.-Some spurious coin has re- cently found its way to Adelaide, and is supposed to have been introduced from Victoria. We have been shewn a counterfeit sliilling and a half-crown, wliieh were passed upon a poor man in the habit of hawking small wares about the streets ; and we have h?ard of several shopkeepers who have been victimised hy similar means ; though we must say, if the specimens were no better than those which were exhibited to us, very slight scrutiny indeed woidd have detected the fraud. THE DOG NUISANCE.-A lad about twelve years of age, named Wenfield, was yesterday afiej.*nooa severely torn by a ferocious dog in a right of way, off Rundle-street. The owner of the dog is unknown. Tii3 dog nuisance has really arrived at an intolerable pitch ; hundreds of savage brutes continually roaming about the city. We beg to call the attention of the authori- ties to the matter.

POLICE COURT-ADELAIDE. THURSDAY, JULY 22. [Before Messrs. S. Beddome, M. Smith, and Capt. Lyons.] DRUNKENNESS.-Three individuals were respectively charged with drunkenness, and were severally fined 5s. for their follies. One of them pleaded as an excuse that about three years ago he had the misfor- tune to have a sunstroke, the effects of which he now suffered from. The most disagreeable consequence of his afiliction was, that he occasionally was troubled with dizziness, which misled the public, and the police in particular. Mr. Beddome told him that the malady he alleged to be suffering from could not produce the odour of nobblers which filled the Court. He was fined 5s. VAGRANCY.-Richard Collins was charged with being found in the public streets at an unusual hour, and unable to give a satisfactory account of himself. Sergeant Etheridge stated that he met the prisoner in company with two or three bad characters at 2 o'clock that morning, near Light-square, and knowing him to be th...

SWEDENBORG.-A correspondent informs us that the meeting for reading and discussing Sweden- borg's " Treatise on Heaven and Hell" was held on Wednesday evening, in the New Church place of worship, Carrington-street, agreeably to the public notice given in the Advertiser of Tuesday. Mr. Holden was called to the chair, who, after briefly noticing the objects of the meeting, and giving a resumé of the chapters of the treatise considered at previous meetings, commenced reading the chapter which enlarges upon the proposition, " That there is a correspondence between all things belonging to heaven   and all things belonging to man." The reading of this and the two next chapters was listened to with great attention by all present. A very interesting and animated discussion ensued.
