FOOTFATHS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 13 July 1858
FOOTPATHS. TO THE EDITOB OP THE ADVEBTISEB. Sir - How is it that in the neighbourhood of Ade- laide the footpaths are entirely cut up by horses, bul- lock-drays, carts, gigs, and every description of vehicle, while the foot-travellers are obliged to walk in the shallower slough of the middle of the road ? Some time ago, if I mistake not, notice was given that any person driving or riding within six feet of the fences of certain roads in the vicinity of Adelaide would be prosecuted; but still no improvement has taken place. The reason that drivers and riders don't keep to the macadamized part of the road is, that nobody likes to take his "cattle" over loose sharp stones when he has the alternative of going in the mud; but whatever the reason may be, the matter calls loudly for the attention of the Road Board, or District Council, as the case may be. I am, Sir, &c., BOOTS. July 12,1858.

POLICE COURT. ADELAIDE, JULY 12. [Before Messrs. S. Beddome,, S.M., and R. B. Colley, J.P.] AUSTRALIA'S BANE. - Edward James pleaded guilty to having exceeded the bounds of moderation on the previous day, but begged hard for forgiveness, his exchequer being in anything but a flourishing con- dition. His appearance corroborated this statement, and as he had been locked up all night, he was dis- charged with a caution to eschew rum for the future. A NEW CHUM IN TROUBLE. - Phillip Nash, re- presented as a new arrival in the colony, was charged with a whole host of offences, amongst which were having been drunk on the previous day, violently assaulting two railway porters, named Gray and Carey, committing a nuisance, and damaging a con- stable's shirt. The man appeared to have behaved like a perfect savage, and would probably have strangled one of the parties he assaulted, but for timely assistance being rendered. He had taken a seat in a third class railway carriage, and upon the train...

THE VICTORIA THEATRE.-The "Stranger" or Misanthropy and Repentance, was produced last even- ing ; the principal characters being sustained by Mr. Holloway and Miss Maria Nelson. Mr. Holloway's Stranger was a respectable piece of acting ; the scene in which he is recognised by his old friend Steinfort, and where he discloses to him the cause of his sor- rows, would have done credit to any stage. Miss Marie Nelson's Mrs. Haller was also very good, but the lady scarcely " looked the character." Both were called before the curtain and greeted with a shower of bouquets at the termination of the piece. Mr. Ricarda made the most of Old Tobias, and Miss Carry Nelson was warmly applauded in the song " I have a silent sorrow here." Mrs. Webster's Countess Wintersen was very well acted, and the inimitable Greville was as funny as ever as Old Peter. The entertainment concluded with the farce of The Dead Shot. There was a very fair attendance. ADELAIDE CHORAL SOCIETY.-The Rehearsal &nbsp...

TUNKILLO DISTRICT SCHOOL.-A meeting of the Committee appointed by the subscribers to the above school was held at the George Inn, Wedmore, on the 5th inst., Mr. John Davey in the chair, when the elevation and plans for the proposed school-house and teacher's residence, prepared by Mr. Job Spender, were produced and examined. The plans, &c., gave perfect satisfaction to the Committee, and it was re- solved to proceed forthwith. The probable expense will be £230 for the whole building. The subscrip- tions already promised to the fund amount to nearly £90. All the members of the Committee pledged themselves to use their utmost exertions to obtain further subscriptions. FEROCIOUS DOGS.-A valuable Timour pony, belonging to Mr. Bennett, butcher, of Hindley-street, was destroyed on Sunday last, on his land at Thebarton, by dogs. It appears that the neighbour- hood of Thebarton is infested by these ferocious animals, and it is a common occurrence to find horses, cattle, and sheep, s...

POLICE COURT. ADELAIDE: TUESDAY, JULY 13. [Before Mr. S. Beddome, S.M.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
POLICE COURT. ADELAIDE : TUESDAY, JULY 13. [Before Mr. S. Beddome, S.M.] Edward James pleaded guilty to being found in Hindley-street with more beer than wit in his head, and was fined the usual 5s. for his want of judgment in making such a preference. John Farrell was charged with being found in the same state in Rundle-street. There were no signs of remorse on his countenance, only a practical appre- ciation of his awkward position, to escape from which he paid the forfeit of 5s. with considerable alacrity. William Wood was brought up (on the production of further evidence) by Sergeant Badman respecting the stealing of two watches and about £20 in money, the property of the Rev. Mr. Ingram. The facts of this case are already known to the public. Thomas James Clare stated that he was at the Stag Inn, Ade- laide, at a time previous to the prisoner's arrest, where he saw him offer a watch as security for a loan of £2. He could not get the money in that way upon the article, and then ...
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-I hope you will let me call the attention of the public to another matter in connection with the Real Property Act, namely, that there are no clauses in the Act that are in any way applicable to land alienated from the Crown after the 1st of July (this month). The clauses of the Act are only applicable to land, the grants of which may have been signed on or before the 1st of July. All lands alienated from the Crown after the 1st of July must be dealt with in the or- dinary manner, or not at all. I would strongly ad- vise that any person who contemplates purchasing land at any future Government land sale should con- sult his legal adviser on this point. That I have good grounds for what I state will be admitted by any per- son who may have read the pamphlet published by the Hon. J. H. Fisher. I am, Sir, &c, H B T S Adelaide, July 13, 1858.

GUARANTEED TITLES UNDER THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
GUARANTEED TITLES UNDER THE REAL PROPERTY ACT. &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-Your correspondent " R. B. T. S." is in error in supposing that in the event of a certificate of title being obtained by fraud, all transfers subsequent to the fraud would be void. Clause 91 of the Act expressly exempts title acquired for bona fide valuable consideration from the class of titles, which the Supreme Court has power to cancel, on the ground that registration had been pro- cured by fraud in some previous case. The language also of clause 98 is so explicit on this point, as to leave no room for doubt. It promises-" That nothing contained in the Act shall be held to operate in any such manner, as to subject to impeachment or to defeat the title of any person who" * * * "shall upon payment of bona fide valuable consideration, have become registered as proprietor in respect to the estate or interest referred to, &c." I am, Sir, &*c, 13th July, 1S58. M.
GOVERNMENT OFFICERS IN PARLIAMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
GOVERNMENT OFFICERS IN PARLIA- MENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-I have perused with great pleasure, your able article in this day's Advertiser on the above subject. I believe it fully embodies the public sentiment on one of the most important questions that is ikely to be discussed during the forthcoming session. During the last sittings of the House of Assembly 85 divisions took place, the highest number of mem- bers voting being 3-1, and the lowest 15, very many questions being decided by three or four votes : how easy then for the Government of the day to create two or three offices, bring its influence to bear on the re- turn of the persons appointed to them, and thus to have a power against which the independent members might in vain strive to contend. Again, Sir, the House is now composed of gentle- men who gratuitously give their time and attention to bring forward measures which they conceive are for the public welfare. Such efforts would cease were it found that i...

THE NEW PAPERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
THE NEW PAPERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. SIR-You have a most important mission to fulfill, and I earnestly hope that you will prove fully equal to your duty. Whilst I do not wish you to be a croaker, I trust that everything in the colony will not appear to you, as it does to your contemporary, contevr de rose; but that you will not hesitate to find fault when there is ground for it. I observe that you intend to publish a monthly . summary for Europe. Do not let it parade this colony to the Europeans as paradise. Let them know that we want clerical reform ; that amongst our clergy of all denominations, we have " dumb dogs which cannot bark ;" we have men of the most meagre mental capacity, who must have been smuggled into ordination ; that proh ! finder, we have even immoral men. Acquaint them with our need of medical reform, &nbsp; with the fact that we have a large number of men " licensed to kill," who cannot produce adequate testi- monials of their ability to cure...
GROWING A BEARD. [From the Melbourne Punch.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
GROWING A BEARD. TFrom the Melbourne Punch.] I breathe aguin, my sorrow's past. The goal of my ambition's won, Boldly I walk the street at last. Who lately shrank from light of sun. The beard-the tuft imperial I used to envy as they grew On other's chins, are mine at length, Though somewhat yellow in their hue. A rival's beard my Kate admired, No hopes had I to win without ; Yet often as I thus aspired, My heart within me sank in doubt. I knew that a la militaire They made one look when long and flowing, But gave a questionable air The while the whole was slowly growing. I oft resolved, as often fear'd 'Tis awful, public censure braving-? Each night 1 swore to grow a beard. Each morn resumed my wonted shaving. Ah, could I by a wizard's spell The magic pow'r of Almanazar At once have stood a hirsute- swell, For aye had I abjured the razor. But well I knew a mouth at least I must endure my comrade's "chaffing," And feel my sclf-respcjt decreased By «coilers at my stubble laughing. Eac...
STATISTICS OF RELIGIONISTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
STATISTICS OF RELIGIONISTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "ADVERTISER." Sir-Certain letters published in the Register on the Government Statistics of Religious Bodies in the colony, have arrested my attention. Regarding myself as a man of the world, though having some desire to- wards religion, yet, still, I fear, "in the flesh," I must profess to you that I am rather puzzled than assisted by the aforesaid statistics. I certainly felt glad at the doing away of State-aid to Religion, because I felt sure that while Government money was in the way, secta- rian zeal, coupled with bickering and strife, would follow as a matter of course, and that such a state of things could not accord with religion, as it would hardly be suffered to exist in worldly societies. How- ever, under that state of things I could easily account for the anxiety of the sects to make their returns as numerically high as possible, because the " tin" was to be Calculated per head. But I am puzzled to see what necessity there...
THE COMMERCIAL MUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
THE COMMERCIAL MUSE. The Poet's corner of v provincial paper of Victoria appears to be somewhere in the advertising columns, where slop sellers, blossom into sentimental verse, dealers in hardware break forth in epic strains, and eating-house keepers woo a hungry public with savory sonnets, and lyrics as tender and toothsome as a delicately dressed pullet. In the far west, the muse does not disdain to hymn the praise of bacon, butter, bottled frurts and barley, and the editor of the Portland Guardián inlays one of his columns with a slab of mosaia, in the shape of a rhymed advertisement, which would cause that great and nameless bard, whose productions aredeath lessly associated with Aldgate and the Minories, to die with envy. Punch cannot suffer the western muse to languish in obscurity, and so transfers the Portland poet's production to these pages. Observe the severely solemn swell of the opening lines: "As I walked out the other day, Along Percy-strcat in Portland Bay, There sto...

THE PUBLIC THOROUGHFARES.-We would suggest to the Corporation the expediency during such weather as we have had latterly, of employing a few men to scrape the accumulations of mud from the crown to the sides of the principal thoroughfares. Such a course would tend not only to promote the convenience of the public, but would preserve the thoroughfares in good order. In Melbourne this plan has for years past been regularly adopted and the saving elfected has been very considerably more than the outlay for the performance of the work. &nbsp; THE PIER HOTEL. - This establishment has changed hands, and in a few days will be opened under entirely new management, the lessee being Mr. Baldwin, already favourably known as a caterer for the public whilst "mine host" of the Prince of Wales,

PRECIPICES IN ADELAIDE. - In another part of our impression will be found a paragraph relative to a recent accident, and which had nearly been followed by fatal results. We allude to the case of the unfortunate pedestrian who, in the dark- ness of night, stepped over the bank of the Torrens, and lay in the bed of the river till rescued by parties who were attracted to the spot by his continuous cries. It has often been to us a cause of astonishment that more frequent acci- &nbsp; dents do not occur through means of the un- guarded and perilous precipices of the banks of the Torrens. Whether the better course is to fence the banks, or to devise some more compre- hensive scheme for rendering the river at once safe and ornamental, we cannot now stay to en- quire ; but if strangers are to be left, without the friendly interposition of either light or rail, to fall over 20-feet precipices, we fear that some fright- ful calamity may one day occur.
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858
CORRESPONDENCE. JACQUES.-We do not like to alter or tamper with the letters of correspondents, and." Jacques" must surely know that his letter, to make English, would have to be re-written from beginning to end. We have no objection to furnish our printers with the substance of letters that are not fit for pub- lication as received, if our correspondents will only give their &nbsp; consent thereto.
