MB. GBEGOBT AXP HIS PARTY.-Mr. Gregory is expected to arrive in town to-day. We are informed that his men will not take horses over- land to Mr. Babbage, having had enough of the bush. Mr. Gregory's brother would go, but unless he can find associates, of course lie also will be precluded. In that case, if any more horses are to go, they must go by steam to Port Augusta. This would greatly increase the ex- pense, and we fear it would lead to no good residt. Mr. Babbage is evidently wrongly equipped, and will never, under present circum- stances, achieve anything very wonderful.

FBOM the large number of letters with which we have been favoured in reference to the enter- tainment to Mr. Gregory, it is evident that con- siderable dissatisfaction exists with regard to the price to be charged for admission on that occa- sion. That the sum of one guinea is tolerably high for a mid-day luncheon, will not, we think, be denied. Our own feeling has been all along unfavourable to so high a price, and we did our best to get it lowered. But it was held that a guinea per head was none too much, considering the amount of money that must be expended in mere preliminaries and accessories before either eatables or drinkables are provided. We think, however, that the price of admission might have ¡ b##n ftpd «t a lower tom, and tk»t thoM who ! choose to drink expensive wines might have been loft to pay for it themselves. It is, no doubt, . more ** comfortable" to include everything iu one ! ticket ; that is-more comfortable for those who ' know that they will consume their g...

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

CORRESPONDENCE. G. P. DOOLETT.-The letter originally forwarded by our cor- respondent was signed "Viator Viieuue," but this was erased, and the signature "G. P. Doolett" substituted, without autho- rity, by the person to whom the letter was entrusted by Mr. Doolett. The unauthorized signature was a clear forgery, and we have the confession in writing of the person who forged it. In compassion to his youth wc shall spare him this time, but he had better beware.

THE "WEEKLY CHBOKICLE: POSTRETUBNS. Agents in the suburban and country districts returning unsold papers through the post, are requested to 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 regulations. Tims, for example, if Jolin Smith wished to return his unsold papers, he would address them to " Sir. Jbhu Smith, Adver- tiser Office, Adelaide." In addition to the address upon the wrapper, it 8houldbe inscribed with the words-"Newspaper only, without letter." IS o other writing must be on or in the parcel.

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

Aft a a mr. ADELAIDE : THUBSDAT, JULY 29, 1858. In our impression of the 26th we stated that we had received information respecting a new Loan Society which was in process of formation, and the object of which was to afford assistance to parties who might be desirous of obtaining loans of money upon property registered under Mr. Torrent's Act. We also stated that this Associ- ation was supposed to be necessary in conse- quence of the legal profession and the land agents having combined together to render the Act unworkable. In the same paragraph we took special care not to endorse the sentiments conveyed by our informant, remarking - "whether this combination really exists, we will not say"b-ut pledging ourselves as to the truth- fulness of this statement, that a new Loan Asso- ciation was being formed in order to carry out Mr. Torrens*s Act. Our paragraph has called forth a letter from Messrs. Wright, Brothers, and in justice to the land agents we here publish it : "TO THE EDITOR O...

THE AGRICULTURIST. BUTTER-MAKING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

THE AGRICULTURIST. BUTTEROJAKim TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir*-The question has been very frequently asked of late in the newspaper columns, why does not this colony produce a greater quantity of butter than it does at present ? Your correspondent " Export" repeats the question. The answer is very simply this : that a9 long as it will pay better to grow wheat than to produce butter, so long will butter not be produced. That it does pay better to grow wheat than butter, I submit the following calculation in proof of the statement ; also for the scrutiny of the initiated, and for the instruction of your correspondent " Export."

ELECTORAL NOTICES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

ELECTORAL NOTICES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-1 wish m answer to a letter from " A District Clerk," in your paper of this <lay, to inform him that the money for delivering the Électoral Notices has been paid some weeks since, to all applying at the Treasury for the sum due to them, and I doubt not but he might have received his had he called for it. He does not appear rightly to understand the " 7th clause of the Act." I see nothing to compel a District Clerk to deliver the papers, and certainly shall next year object to do so. The Act. says, " District Clerks shall, &c," but as there is no penalty for refusal, it cannot be compulsory j if it were it would b8 indeed arbitrary. The Act is most unjust in giving £10 for each dis- trict, without relation to extent and accessibility ; for instance, Payneham, Burnside, Crafer's, &c, the amount is about a fair thing ; but for Yatala, Onkapa- ringa, East Torrens, Echunga, &c, it is not half the v...

CARTWRIGHT V. HAWKINS. Postponed upon payment of the costs of the day. BUCKLEY V. DUNCAN. Mr. Wigley appeared for the plaintiff. Alico Buckley, a young woman who had been in the defendant's service and who claimed £1 103. for wages. The defendant stated that by right he should have ap- peared as the complainant, and have prosecuted the girl for leaving his service without giving any notice. Alice appsared indignant at the assertion, and stated that her mistress, after accusing her of robbing her, bad dt sired her to leave the house immediately which she did. This was considered a sufficient discharge, and the Bench awarded the plaintiff wages to the amount of £1 4s. GAIGNET V. MURRAY.

THE IMPOUNDING LAWS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

THE IMPOUNDING LAWS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Su?-m your columns of yesterday is a report of proceedings before the Adelaide Bench of Magistrates, under an "»formation laid by me against Isaac Skinner, of Mitcham, for charging me £3 in excess of damages on impounding ponies of mine for trespass on un fenced and uncultivated land occupied by him. The result was, that I obtained a favourable decision, but one which leaves me considerably out of pocket in consequence of the defendant's unlawful conduct. The proceeding was taken by me chiefly to test the question on behalf of many poor neighbours of de- fendant. The circumstances are these :-The defendant holds an open rough hill-section under the Hon. Captaia Hall, M.L.C, surrounded by other open lands ; these latter lands are occupied gemerally b) a class of humble and hard working men, deriving their livelihood by cart- ing firewood, &c, their cattle depasturing on similar un fenced lands.

NOCTURNAL ATTACKS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

NOCTURNAL ATTACKS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-We are now beginning to feel the conse- quences of the late importations from Swan River, for it would appear from the daily reports in our Police Courts that nearly all the. robberies and thefts which have lately been committed have been perpe- trated by scamps from that colony. It wül be prudent, therefore, for every house- holder to guard against the nightly attacks of these scoundrels. Having a good revolver, I am prepared to give nocturnal visitors of this stamp a warm reception should they favour me with a call. Unwilling, however, to take the law improperly into my own hands, I wish to be informed whether or no one would be justified in shooting a man found in his dwelling-house after 9 o'clock at night, he having forcibly broken into the same. I am, Sir, &c, SELF-DEFENCE, North Adelaide, July 26,1858.

But at the same time let not the mainstay of the colony be ignored, the workingmen. Can we not get up a lunch, say tickets 7s. 6d. each, and let those who like to drink pay for what they have, instead of paying for the soakers having a skinfull. I doubt not Mr. Gregory would be willing to give us the meeting, and we can get some one else to do the acting part as well as Mr. E C. Longson. I am, »ir, ¿te, WOBKEE. Adelaide, July 29,1858.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 29 July 1858

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-A very general impression exist3 that the charge of one guinea for a ticket of admission to the entertainment about to be given to Mr. Gregory, will militate against a large attendance, and I have no doubt such will prove to be the case. I was of opinion that a creditable entertainment might have been provided for a much lower sum, but I have since seen reason to. alter my opinion, finding that what may be termed the preliminary expenses, including the use of the room, decorations, band of music, payment to secre- tary, advertisements, tickets, and waiters, all of which expenses will have to be borne by the contractors for the feast, amount to the rather startling sum of £80, so that assuming there are one hundred and forty per- sons present, the amount which the contractors will actually receive for eatables and drinkables, will be onlv eleven shillings per heael ! to say notliing of the in- vited guests for whom according to custom in such case...
