SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

SANDWICH ISLANDS. News from Honolulu to March 27 is to hand by the circuitous route of San Francisco. It is said that D. L. Gregg, Esq., will probably be appointed Minister of Finance as soon as Judge Beiden, his successor to thep03t of U.S. Commissioner, shall arrive. A new treaty with Franco has been signed. Its text has not been published, but its chief point is said to be that the duty on brandy is reduced from five dollars to three dollars per gallon. France has been long working to get this reduction, and pchaps it will now come too late, for the grape brandy of Cali- fornia will be a dangerous and probably a suocsssfal rival of the Cognac. Missionary Snip.-The missionary ship Morning Star has gone to the Marqueasas Islands, carrying the following missionaries:-- Rev. A'temas BHiod, delegate from the Haw Missionary Society; Rev.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

TASMANIA. Hobart Town papers are to the 17th. The destruc- tive effect of the aphis on the general vegetable crops of the colony forms a prominent topic of discussion. The Mercury says : We regret to hear that in the neighbourhood of Sandy Bay the ravages of that destructive insect, aphis brassica, have not at all been checked by the late frosfs,huton the contrary these little pests are at- tacking the growing crops of turnips, carrots, beans, peas, &c. The Mayor of Hobart Town.-A special meet- ing of the Municipal Council was held on July 13, for the purpose of receiving the resignation of the Mayor. We hear the cause is the intention of His.| Worship to remove to Melbourne. New Seam of Coal.-We announced a few days ago that a new seam of coal had been found at the Carlton. We have since heard that the seam has been found at the Blue Lagoon farm, the property of Mr. Thorne, opposite Spectacle Island. It is an anthracite coal, of excellent quality, and the seam is five feet ...

INSOLVENCY COURT. TUESDAY, JULY 27. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

INSOLVENCY COURT. Tuesday, July 27. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] In re Chubb, Hill, & Co.-An adjourned final hear- ing had been appointed in this case. Mr. Thomas Calde cott Chubb, as partner in the firm, had at the previous meeting been examined at considerable length, and Mr. Gwynne had given notice of his intention to oppose his certificate upon various grounds. The Attorney-General was retained for the insolvent, Mr. Chubb ; and at the previous meeting- intimated his intention of cross-examin- ing upon the evidence in chief for the purpose of doing away with unfavourable impressions which had been created. The principal ground of opposition is understood to be general recklessness in trading and in the conduct of busines« by the insolvent. To meet the convenience of the professional gentlemen engaged in the case a further ad- journment till Thursday next, at II o'clock, was assented to ; and it was intimated that the case would certainly last the whole of that day.

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 28 July 1858

CHINA. Advices from Hong Kong are to May 3rd. The principal items of information are from the circular of Messrs. Jardine, Matheson, & Co. CHINA AND THE ALLIES.—The Commissioners of the Allied Powers, together with the American and Russian Plenipotentiaries, had determined on pro- ceeding to the port of Tientsin, accompanied by a con- siderable naval force, in consequence of the evasive and unsatisfactory replies received from Pekin. Last advices stated that the squadron was on its way north, three ships having already arrived off the river Peiho ; it may be hoped that we shall shortly hear something more conclusive regarding the prospects of a termination to the existing differences. The Imperial Commissioner, Hwang, reached Foo- chow on the 22nd ult., on his way to Canton. At the latter port an uneasy feeling has been excited by the arrest of the governor, Pehkivei, and other mandarins, and by a general seizure of arms in Chinese houses. These repressive measures are due t...

Eyre, shipping reporter for the Advertiser, with an assault. A cross-information was laid by the defendant against the plaintiff. The quarrel arose in consequence of Jagoe having made some disparaging references to Eyre's passing through the In- solvency Court. From words they came to blows, until Jagoe ran away and laid the original information. Eyre...

LOBETHAL. [From a Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

LOBETHAL. [From a Correspondent.] A public meeting was held at the Bising Sun, Lobethal, on Thursday evening last, at 7 o'clock, tor the purpose of considering the practicability of establish- ing a new and short route to the Murray from Ade- laide. J. W. Kleinsehmidt, Esq., was called to the chair. The CHAIRMAN opened the meeting by reading the advertisement calling them together. He said he could not but advoeate the route to the Murray as then submitted for then* consideration ; and as it was known that a new Road Bill was likely to be introduced to the Legislature of this colony at the next session, it was thought expedient to acquaint the Chief Secretary with a few particulars relating thereto, that there might net be any impediment to the opening of the new route to the Murray, in continuation of the No. 3 main line of road. Mr. T. WEINERT moved, and Mr. F. STREMTEL seconded, the following resolution :-" That as there is intimation that the Government is about to intro- duce a...

VICTORIA THEATRE.-" Lalla Bookh" was repeated last evening to a delighted audience. The encomiums passed upon the piece when it was first produced, and upon the actors by whom the various characters were sustained, were no more than were fairly merited. It is unquestionably the best burlesque we ever saw uoon a coloniil stage. The dialogues, with striking hits lîere . and there interspersed, are sparkling throughout ; and it is only from long and careful 6tudy that so accurate a conception of the various parts, without that exag- geration so often to be met with, could have been j achieved ; besides which, no expense has been spared I by Mr. Henderson, the enterprising manager, to give ! full effect to the entertainment, both by gorgeous dresses and scenic display. Many of "the points ' , are racy in the extreme, particularly that upon the j magnificent scene in- the Lady of Lyons, hi which -. Claude Melnotte describes to Pauline his imaginary palace on the Lake of Como. It is to be...

LECTURE AT HINDMARSH.—WONDERS OF THE MICROSCOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

XECTUBE AT HINDMARSH.-WOXDEBS OF THE MICROSCOPE. On Tuesday evening last, a lecture was delivered at the Congregational Chapel, Hindmarsh, by the Rev. V. W. Cox, in aid of the Hindmarsh Library and Iustituto. the subject being "The Wonders of the Microscope." Tho chair was taken by the Rev. Mr. Howie. Tho lecturer commenced by observing that no doubt there wore nntiy ti lera who had novar scan a iu'eio=cepe. The origin of the instrument was rather obscure, and could. not be traced beyond the year 1560, though no doubt U came into use somewhere about the «arno date as the" lena. Spectacles were in use in the 13th century. Jansen made a microscope about 1590, the instrument boimr six feet in length, aud one inch in diameter. The fir-ítlecture upon the microscope was in 15S5, and was in reference to the sting of a bee, as viewed through n glass. A combination of glasses constituted a micro acope, and' they really did not magnify an object, but enabled persons to see objecta at a snorte...

OUR STEEETS AT NIGHT.-In reference to the case of Fletcher aud Fearn, reported in our columns this day under the head of police, there is every reason to believe that most of the burglaries which have recently been perpetrated in and about Adelaide, may be traced to these prisoners and their confederate«. Sergeant Badman has been indefatigable in his exertions for days past for their detection. A day or two »jo he discovered, near the residencs of the two prisoners, secreted in a hole, a number of skeleton keys j and perceiving that these might he the means of detecting this gang of desperadoes who have latterly infasted our city, he arranged that the keys should be left in the same position, and narrowly watched. The vigilaneo of the police, however, was not at first suc- cessful. The keys were removed, but Sergeant Bad man has now discovered them in the possession of the prisoners Fletcher and Fearn, together with the files alluded to in oui- report. Sergeant Badman declares that,...

COMMERCIAL. WEEKLY MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Thursday evening, July 22,1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

COMMERCIAL. "WEEKLY MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, Thursday evening, July 22,1858. The market for colonial produce "generally has been dull 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 has fluctuated a good deal, hut after being down to 7s. 3s. at the mills in town, it ha3 been again more in demand for 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 difficulty 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 as follows, viz. : hy Messrs. Wickstead & Co., to day, 150 tons English house coals, at £2 12s. 6d. p...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

VICTORIA. The telegrams from Tictoria very materially detract from the value of our ordinary commercial letters per steamer. We give, however, the following, received per Havilah this day : Melbourne. Julv 23,1858. It being positively stated by the agents that the Havilah will sail this afternoon, whether or not the English mail comes in, or, failing its arrival, whether or not the Burra Burra arrives to release her, I deem it advisable to be in readi- ness, though the impression prevails that if neither of the abo vementioncd make their appearance the Havilah will not go. The markets since my last nave continued in the same state of apathy notwithstanding there have been one or two attempts to write them into animation. It is true there has been a little more doing for the interior, but the town store- keepers are well in stock of most goods, consequently little enquiry to purchase has been manifested ; and the true test of all markets, viz.. the placing of large parcels, is still ...
