AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 16 August 1852
AUSTRALIA.' With référence to the newly discovered gold region, the New York Herald has an amusing rhodoinoutade. " Already," says that Ancient Pistol of American journalism -" Already miners have : left California for New South Wales. There are * nun» drcd thousand- minèTa in California, and there are several hundred ships remaining unemployed in the Bay of San Francisco, which could be profitably used in convey- ing some thousands of them to Australia, if they think proper to go there! ' "Five thousand of them could be landed in a very short time, and from what the Biitish people know of the character of these men, they must be persuaded that no effectual opposition could be offered to them. In- deed, five thousand California mu ft '8 would overrun the whole of Austratíi"í"va a very sbort time."
EDITORIAL OPINIONS. CONSTITUTION OF NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 16 August 1852
..EDITORIAL OPINIONS. CONSTITUTION OF NEW ZEALAND. The " Chairman of quarter sessions" has pro ved more than a match for the noble member of the magic "family circle." Sir John Pakington, on Mfipday^in bringing in a bill to grant« representative constitu- tion to the colony of New Zealand, showed unexpected ability. The late Government had, indeed, left materials for a bili on the subject, as a legacy to their successors. But Sir John Pakington exhibited great wisdom, in his adoption or refusal of those suggestions j and manifested a really Liberal spirit in his enunciation of the principles by which he had been actuated in these adoptions or amendments. The plan he proposes is to divide the islands of New Zealand into six provinces, viz., Auck- land, Canterbury, Nelson, Otago, and New Plymouth, each presided over by a Super- intendant wi tb a salary of £500, who should be nominated by the Governor of the Colony. Earl Grey's plan was for five pro- vinces only, (NewTlymouth being omi...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 16 August 1852
VICTORIA. STATE OP MELBOURNE.-We hare been favjred with the perusal of communications froja private parries in Melbourne, describing tbr present condition of that city as dreadful in the extrema. Burglaries, it ts stated, are o'nightly occurrence; .and not a day passes yithout witnessing some brutal or rapacious ¿itack in the open streets. One of the writers says it is notorious in Melbourne that the newspapers systematically suppress accounts of these coustantly-recurring events ; or, when they notice them at all, do so in terms too mild to convey any true idea of their charac er. They deal very, oppositely, he says, with atty accounts that reach them of outrages in Ade- laide always endeavoring to exaggerate their importance. We do not vouch fiar Sie accuracy of these statements. For the credit ,of the Melbourne press, we hope they are not strictly and generally true. Our authority, however, is respetable, and we give tile allegations as we find them. The Chusan sailed for Sydney ...

THE SISTER COLONIES. NEW SOUTH WALES. Our Sydney papers are to th? 2nd iust. in- clusive. NEW GOLD FIELD.-The most interesting item of news is the authenticated account of the discovery of a new gold .field, promising to rival Mount Alexander itself. A letter from Mr Bligh, Commissioner of Crown Lands at Gwydis, has been laid before the Legislative Council, in which he states he hadjust returned from a renewed examination of the Bingara Gold Field, and fell justified in saying that it was not likely to be inferior in productiveness to any yet discovered. " In the course of. 2 hours and a-half," be writes, " I picked with a penknife o it of the dry soil in the ked of the creek very nearly three pennyweights of gold, in very small nuggets ; and in half that time, on the following evening, I obtained in the same way one and a-half pennyweight more. A man named James Watson sold, in ray presence, twenty-two ounces of gold, in- cluding a four ounce nugget, all obtained with a tin dish, a...

The j case for the Crown had been closed OK the previous day, bot Dr. Wark was recalled by the Court to gire farther evidence as to the probable canse of i death» eMr'Fisher, iii addressing the"ïary fo defence of the prisoner, said he felt overwhelmed by the awful responsibility imposed upon him, «hen on his exer- tions the life of a fellow creature might depend. There was danger of being driven into error by a national repugnance to the very name of morder ; and be must beg the Jory to guard against that prejudice which tries the accused before he is judicially heard, and draws conclusions from passion which ought only to be deduced from evidence. Ile felt it necessary to give this caution, because tb« corning Chronicle of the 28th Jane and 1st July had very incorrectly stated the facts of this case, and in Ulis instance made the press an engine of OTOSS ioi...
