The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858
?\)t luWferX ADELAIDE : WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1858. We were yesterday enabled to present our readers with exclusive intelligence of the great rush from San Francisco, and its vicinity to the new goldfields of the Northern Pacific. In our impression of to-day will be found full particulars of this important event. What may be the final result of these repeated developments of auriferous wealth it is impossible to say, but the history of California and of Victoria plainly teach us what are the primary consequences. As to ultimate effects financiers and social econo- mists are utterly at variance ; nor is the solution of the question, after all, of much practical im- portance. Whether the discovery of gold is to issue iu the permanent enrichment or impoverish- ment of mankind is an alternative that but few will care to discuss. Let the effect upon succeed- ing generations be what it may, if gold is to be had for digging, gold-digging, whatever its ten- dencies, will be an occupation that...

The Weekly Chronicle: PostEettjkxs. Agents in the suburban and country districts returning unsold papers through, the post, are requested lo pay particular attention to the mode of their transmission, as otherwise the parcels will be charged for at the Post-Office according to the letter rates. Unsold papers should be enclosed in a wrapper, open at the ends, and addressed to the sender, at the Advertiser Office, Adelaide. This enables us to know from whom they come, and it' is within the scope of the Post Office regxdations. Thus, for example, if John Smith wished to return his unsold papers, he would address them to " Mr. John Smith, Adver- tiser Office, Adelaide." In addition to the address upon the wrapper, it should be inscribed with the words-"Newspaper only, without letter." l\o other writing must be on or in the parcel.

The Entertainment to Mr. Gregory.-The announcement by a contemporary that ladies would be admitted to the entertainment to be given to Mr. Gre- gory was premature ; that is, we do not say that the fair sex will be excluded, but certainly no resolution has been arrived at by the Sub-Committee to admit them. Public-House Regulations.-We hear that in- structions are about to be issued to the police, directing them to keep a sharp look-out for the purpose of ascer- taining what publicans aro in the habit of supplying in- toxicating liquors on the Sabbath Day, without reference to the particular hours during which the existing law per- mits them to bo supplied, and that at the annual licen- sing day nu such cases wiU be re,x>rtel t? the Bench,

Miss Witt wrote announcing her intention to succeed her sister, Mrs. Wilton, in the school in Carrington- I street, having been an assistant there. Mrs. Wilton was resigning in consequence of illness. Mr. Wickes said that Miss Witt had been conducting the school during the absence of her sister, and that her school was as good as ever it was.

SUPREME COURT-IN EQUITY. Tuesday, July 27. [Before the full Court.] Thoume and Another v. Robin and Another. For the plaintiffs, Mr. Bakewell and Mr. Fenn ; for the defendant, the Attorney-General, Mr. Gwynne, and Mr. Fisher. This case was opened on Friday last and was resumed to-day. It occupied the whole day without coming to a close, and is adjourned till Friday next, when it is ex- pected the whole caso will be before the Court, and be closed. We think it will be more agreeable to our readers to have the whole case in one paper, and we shall therefore prepare a suceint report of the evidence and arguments of counsel. For the present we may briefly state that the suit now pending has relation to the ownership of Kent Town estate, and is instituted by a gentleman from England, who claims two-thirds of the value of the property from the present trustees of Challes Robin, who bought the section from Colonel Torrens some few years back. The facts of the case as at present disclosed a...
THE WATERWORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858
THE WATERWORKS. In consequence of reports having been circu- lated to the effect that the new Waterworks had received serious damage in consequence of the late stormy weather, we have felt it to be our duty to make special enquiries on the subject, and the result will appear in the following com- munications : " TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. " Sir - I am desired by the Board of Commissioners of Water Supply and Drainage for the City of Adelaide to forward to you, for publication in your journal, the enclosed report by the Engineer to the Commission on the present state of the river weir. "The Commissioners have been led to this step in consequence of certain rumours, which have been more or less widely circulated, calling in question the general effectiveness of the weir, and in some cases going so far as to aver even its total destruction. " I may further state that the Commissioners, with the view of removing all doubts as to the efficiency of the work, are now engaged in thoro...
VICTORIA. [From our own Correspondent.] Melbourne, July 24, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858
VICTORIA. [From our own Correspondent.] Melbourne, July 24,1858. One of the principal events that have transpired since my last was the departure for England of the Mayor of this city, who is the bearer of an address to Her Majesty, congratulating her on the marriage of the Princess Royal. When His Worship returns he expects to do so as Sir John Thomas Smith ; and his brother corporators, in publicly taking leave of him, paid him as much homage as though a peerage had been actually conferred on him. First of all His Worship was presented with an address, suitably em- blazoned on vellum, and signed by the Protestant Bishop, the Judges, the leaders of the Bar, several members of the Administration, the Aldermen and Councillors, and many of the principal merchants of the city. Then came an adress from the Magistracy ; and then there washanded to the Victorian Whittington a draft for £600, the recipient of which was requested to'expend it in the purchase of a service of plate, to be pre...
IMPORTANT GOLD DISCOVERIES. THE GOLD DISCOVERIES AT VANCOUVER'S ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858
IMPORTANT GOLD DISCOVERIES. THE GOLD DISCOVERIES AT VANCOUVER'S ISLAND. We lose no time in extracting the fullest particulars in relation to the discovery of gold in the British Poa« sessions in North America, a telegraphic announce ment of which appeared exclusively in the Advertiser of yesterday. It will be seen that the new diggings were causing the greatest excitement in the Californian and other American districts, from which thousands Were flocking in every direction. The intelligence ii from California, via Sydney, up to the 20th April last, and fully confirmed by further accounts which arrived at Queenscliffe, Melbourne, direct from California by the Mary Robinson, on Friday evening last, with dates up to 22nd ol'May. These later details, however, have not come to hand ; of course when they do, we shall lose no time in giving them publicity. Tho fact of ' the discovery is authenticated beyond all doubt, and the richness of the yield is stated to b3 such as will rival Califor...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858
CALIFORNIA. The rush to the new gold-fields on Vancouver's Island is the almost exclusive theme of the San Fran- cisco papers. Wo extract the following market and trade intelligence : The report of trade and commercial matters generally, must necessarily render subsequent reports for a time, at least, comparatively trite and valueless. During the past two weeks, but little has occurred of a nature to warrant extended remark. Trade to all appearance is but languid, and yet the condition of the country at large, iu view ol the heavy rains which have fallen, cannot but be in a highly prosperous con- dition for this particular reason, and this of course must ulti- mately result in active mercantile matters, and a general re- suscitation of business. Since '55 we have not been favoured with such a promulgation of the rain storms as has been observed during the present year. The various departments of labour all over the state are in full and healthful exercise. Few of our jobbing houses ...

WEEKLY MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Thursday evening, July 22, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858
WEEKLY MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Thursday evening, July 22, 1858. The market for colonial produce generally has been cluU throughout the last ten days. In flour best country brands have been offered at £17, and town at £18, during the last three days ; but transactions have been very limited. Wheat lias fluctuated a good deal, but after being down to 7s. 3=. at the mills in town, it has been again more in demand foi* export, and parcels have changed hands at 7s. 9d. and 8s., delivered at the Port. Bran has been sold at Is. 8d. In grain for horse-feed we quote no transactions. The vessels loading at the Melbourne berth last week are still here, and some difiiculty is experienced in inducing shippers to send flour forward even at low rates of freight. There is still the same inactivity in general business ; and the only quotations since last »Saturday at auction were a3 follows, viz. : by Messrs. Wickstead & Co., to day, 150 tons English house coals, at £2 12s. 6d. per ton, del...
