LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 9 August 1852
LOCAL NEWS. I THE NEW COINAGE.-We are thunderstruck ? to hear that the Government, notwithstanding their express engagement, are hesitating about establishing a Mint. Surely the experience of California, where 15 mints were established by private parties and proved profitable, is suffi- cient to demonstrate that one in South Aus- tralia is a safe speculation ; and now that the Home Government have positively sanctioned the institution of Mints, it would be disgraceful if this colony were to flinch from an enterprise which must prove beneficial to the whole of the Australian colonies, and eminently lucra- tive to our colonists. We shall return to the subject in our next. CROWN LAND SALES.-We are sure it must gratify all true friends of the colony to find from the following table, which we have com- piled from our files, that the land sales are rapidly increasing. The amount in July is rather above the average of the last two years, which was less than £8000 per month. Land Sales. 185...

There rs a picture now lodged at the Amateur (î;t!lerj, 121, VAl Mali, which, apnrt fro n irs o wa merits, is rendered in- teresting hy being the first large picture ever painted, or (by many people) ever seen in Australia. lt is an illustration of the Scripture " Suffer little children to cottle unto me " The painter is Mr Marshall Claxton. It was produced under the following circum- stances. In the summer of the year 1850, a muni- ficent lady residing in London, and distin- j guished everywhere for her gentle genero-j sity and goodness, conmiieáioned Mr v. lax-j ton to paint this picture for the interior decoración of an Infant School. Mr Clas- j ton was thea on the eve of emigrating to I Sydney. If he might only consider the subject on the voyage, he said, and paint it in th^ land of bis adoption, what a pride he would have in showing it to hie new countrymen, aud what a testimony it would be to them that he was not slighted in Old England ...

DOING THE PHILANTHROPIC MODE BY ENACTMENT. Io the Editor of the " MORNING CHHONICLG " j SIB-It is some months since our legislators determined to do the philanthropic mode by enactment, and gave to young Soiuh Australia its famous New Education Act. We are io ?? pay the schoolmasters-at least those whom the Honorable Board of Inquisitors choose to patronize; but. Sir, whit is to ne done about books? I should imagine few orders have been or will be sent to Kngland for supplier, uutil the Philanthropic Bo*rd, by enactment, has determined what books our p--d.*go«rues shall use. Where shall ve get our supplies during the next nine month* ? ßy-t..e-:»y I have heard it said our philanthropists, by enactment, are going lo u»e public mo.iey against private traders, and we shaii soon »ce. another bookshop in Gawler-place, thus an- nounced CRANE, Bookseller, (by Government aiJ) by authority (nf the 'Jolly* Inquisitors, who do the pltdanihropic by civil enactment.; i a:ii, Sir, yours' respectf...

THE OPEN COLUMN. " Andi alteram partem." THE MOUNTED POLICE. To the Editor of ihe " MORNING CHKOKICLE.'* In your paper of the 2nd inst-, you were kind enough to pass some remarks on the pre- sent position of the Police Fore;-, for which you certainly deserve the thanks both of the men forming that body and the public. Your paragraph, however, seems only, although this is not specially mentioned in it, to bu written in regard to the Foot Police, while the complaint ot injustice is far greater towards the Mounted Division. I therefore beg leave to solicit your impartiality in nllcwing me to add the following circumstances to your valuable paragraph, with a special view to the position of the Mounted Police :-The Mounted Police receive the same pay as the Foot Police, while they are ordered to incur far greaser expenses, being compelled to find a quantity of things for the use of cleaning their horses and arms, such as currycomb, brushes, spouch, chamois, button-stick, bush aird- milit...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 12 August 1852
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We have Cape papers to the 25th June. The rebel Hottentots seemed to be giving more trouble than the Kafirs. They were well-mounted and armed, and under excellent discipline. They had made a most disastrous attack, upon a party of sappers and miners, who were escorting ammunition and stores. They killed nine men and one woman, and wounded seven men. They plundered five waggons and got some ammunition and guns,*but fortunately the nipples of the guns bad been removed. Parties of Kafirs and Hottentots had made several daring expeditions for plunder within the colony, and had penetrated to within four miles of Grahara's-town. Adelaide wheat 25s 6d per 3 bushels.
