VICTORIA. IMPORTANT CASE. COOPER V. DENNISTOUN BROTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 26 July 1858
VICTORIA. IMPORTANT CASE. COOPER v. DENNISTOUN BROTHERS. The Supreme Court at Melbourne has just been &nbsp; occupied in the trial of a case which has created no &nbsp; small amount of interest in the commercial world, in- volving a breach of an agreement of indent by non- &nbsp; delivery of the indented cargo. The action was brought by Win. John Cooper, late a merchant of Melbourne, and subsequently prosecuted by the Official Assignee of his estate (Mr. Jacomb) against the well-known firm of Dennistoun Brothers. We take the following particulars from the Weekly Argus of the 9th inst. :- Dennistoun Brothers in the early part of last year undertook to indent a cargo of oats for the plaintiff per the ship Vaquero, from San Francisco to Mel- bourne. By the agreement of indent the plaintiff undertook, immediately upon the arrival of the vessel in Melbourne, to pay Dennistoun Brothers the approximate cost of the cargo and all charges, and upon Dennistoun Brother...

That the learned professions would find that their tastes and pursuits would not be ignored by the journal to whrse column« th" J;ir:=t is thus admitted, w.a« one of tint journal's first pledges ; and in representing to its Man tging Director the claims of the legal pro- fession to a fair represen* atb-e share of il= pages for purely legal and scientific matter, the projectors of the Jurist have been met with a liberality fully redeem- ing the pledge so given. Thus auspiciously introduced, the Jurist appeals to the members of the legal profession to render their ready aid in making it avorthy of the columns in which it appears, and the vehicle at once of information, not less useful to the profession than important lo the public.

POST-OFFICE REFORM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858
POST-OFFICE REFORM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-InEngland the Post-Office yieldsaboutamülion clear profit to the State. In South Australia it entails a heavy yearly loss. Why is this ? Because we won't learn wisdom by the experience of the past, and con- tinue to charge 6d. for a letter to Melbourne and other neighbouring colonies with whom we are in such close mercantile relationship, and, mi rabile dictu. only charge the same for a letter to England ! If the Post-Office is wanted to pay, let this anomaly be at once rectified-a uniform Id. postage to all parts of South Australia, and a 2d. or 3d. rate-the former is the best-to Melbourne and our neighbouring colonies. But this is not all. It is a well known fact that the " money order" system has conduced, simulta- neously with the penny postage system, to produce the increased revenue which the Post-Office of England enjoys* Why not introduce this here ? I am sure the public woidd willingly pay even double the amount charg...
"MOMUS" AND THE "ADVERTISER." TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858
"MOMTJS" AND THE "ADVERTISER." TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir.-Under the heading "Notices to Correspon- dents," in your issue of this morning, you treat a facetious writer who luis appropriated the nomme de plume of " Momus," to a slight drubbing. Now, sir, being a near relative of the original, and being anxious to maintain the honour of the family, I beg you will notify to all concerned that the writer of that strange epistle, in which questions were asked almost as absurd as if the undersigned were to enquire where the Register ia on the Telegraph and Gregory discussions ? (the answer to which would undoubtedly be KO WHERE,) is not the rightfid owner of that name, but has pirated it for his own purposes, to bring my friend into disrepute. I am, Sir, Seo. LAND O' CAKES. N.B. When " Momus" next rushes into print he will adopt a more grave signature, in order to retain his own property.
THE ABORIGINES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858
THE ABORIGINES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-Though more attention appears to be now be- stowed on the condition of these unfortunate beings than was formerly the case, yet very little seems to bo done for them in the shape of real relief. The efforts of the Aborigines Friends' Committee may ac- complish a great deal, and private charity also may do something to soften the hardships of their wretched condition ; but unless the community as a whole re- solve to do something for them, they cannot bo bene- fited to that extent which their wants and their claims upon us so urgently call for. It is not merely their temporal wants but the higher claims of their nature which require satisfying. I know there are many who will sneer at the bare idea of the natives pos- sessing anything in the shape of high claims, but let such remember those often-quoted words, " God hath made of one blood all nations of men," and that while they reduce the human creature to the level of brute beasts...

THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THH EDITOB OF THH ADVERTISER. Sir-It may be all very well for " A Friend to the Act" remarking that many of the articles touching on this Act and appearing "in the public papers, have emanated from the members of tho legal profession, but I may remind him and those atti generis tliat abuse is not argument. It is to be regretted that you should in your article on the New Loan Association, insinuate that there is "a combination" in the profession against lending money on the securities under this Act. I cannot believe in such a combination, and never will approve of that wholesale system adopted by your contemporary in condemning a profession, amongst whom there are as honest and upright a set of men as in any other portion of the commanity, not even ex- cepting the staff, great and small, iii "the Lands Title Registration Office." For my part I am persuaded the opposition of the profession to tliis Bill to be as virtuous as the support it obtains is visionar...
GREAT GOLD DISCOVERIES IN VANCOUVER'S ISLAND. DEPARTURES FROM CALIFORNIA. [From our own correspondent.] Melbourne, July 23, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858
GREAT GOLD DISCOVERIES IN VANCOUVER'S ISLAND. DEPARTURES FROM CALIFORNIA. [From our own correspondent] Melbourne, July 23,1858. Important news from California has arrived, down to April 20th. There have been great discoveries of gold at Vancouver's Island. Much excitement-prevails, and hundreds are leaving California for the British possessions. Miners on the island are said to be earning from £2 to £10 per day. The effect has been to produce an almost total stoppage. At Paget Sound, mills are stopped, farms are abandoned, and even th military are deserting to join in the rush. Silver is also said to be found, and a great part of the Hudson's Bay territory is believed to be of an auriferous character. At the Great Salt Lake City everything is at present quiet. Bad news from Sydney. We have dates to the 20th instant. Thousands of sheep are being swept off by catarrh. The markets are inactive. For the best town brands of Adelaide flour £20 to £20 10s. is asked but it can be bought £1 ...

INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH. Advertiser and Chronicle Offices, July 27, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 27 July 1858
INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAPH. Advertiser and Chronicle Offices, July 27,1858. The communication is again broken off. Yes- terday morning there was a complete circuit; but the boisterous weather proved too much for the magnetic current, and last night we were informed by the Superintendent that it was im- possible to speak Melbourne. In the early part of the day we received mes- sages from our two Melbourne correspondents, the messages in question having been delayed at the Melbourne station. They will speak for them- selves as to our arrangements, and will prove that if we had had the use of the wires we should have been in a position, at an earlier period, to place valuable information at the disposal of oui readers. The first telegram, containing important news, was delivered to the Melbourne officials on Friday last ; the second on Saturday.

THB ABOBIGINES.-Yesterday, Mr. Hitchin, the Government storekeeper, was actively employed, distributing blankets, axes, pots, pannikins, fish-hooks, &c.j to about 120 natives, who ave now encamped on the banks of the Torrens preparatory to their return to their native wilds. The tribe has come from a locality situated between Lake Bonney and the North- west Bend, and has not been down so far as Adelaido for many years. As it is expected the Government will form one or two stations in that district there will in future be no occasion for their journeying to Ade- laide for their blankets and other et celeras. We believe they start homeward to-morrow. NORWOOD AND STEPNEY INSTITUTE.-A lee ture will be delivered this evening (Tuesday), July 27, at the Congregational schoolroom, Chapel-street, Norwood, by Mr. E. G. Day, upon "Tliephilosophy of Dreams," at which a full attendance of the members is expected ; and, as the admission is free, it is supposed that many others besides sub...

THE HORTICULTURIST. [The writer of the following letter requests its insertion in this part of our paper.] WiNE-MAKING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir.-As wine promises to form one of our chief ' articles of export, I hope that a few hints may be found useful to those who are engaged in its manufacture. I have, since my residence in the colony, tasted numerous samples, and found most of them impreg- nated with a peculiar earthy taste, and many contain- ing a large quantity of free acid for young wines. Now it is an acknowledged fact that the vine grows best in a moderately poor soil, and requires but very Utile manuring, and when cultivated for wine-making ought to be kept well pruned, in order that the whole ol' the sap, which would otherwise form new and useless wood, may provide nourishment to the fruit. In the next place, grapes of the some sort, and then only when grown on the same soil, ought to be pressed together, as the admixture of other descrip- tions causes the win...
