THE MISSING MAIL[?] TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

THE MISSING! MATT,. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-I think that I can assign the true canse of the delay in the arrival of the English Mail. 1 saw, some weeks since, a letter from an eminent firm at Plymouth, to the son of the senior member and the brother of the junior members of the firm, which stated that they had taken the contract with the Government to send out troops to India, and were armed with authority to require the use of any steamer they thought suitable for the purpose, but found it diillcult to obtain enough. I think it will turn out. that the insurrection in India is still raging, and that all the good steamers being employed in the service of carrying out troops there, some old tub of a thing has been sent with the English Mail. I send you confidentially the name of the gentleman whose letter I saw, that you may, if your think proper, make further inquiries. I am, Sir, &c., AN EXPECTANT OF LETTERS. Adelaide, July 29,1858.

THE PORT ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

THE POET EOAD. TO THE EDITCm OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-In the Register ol' this morning appeared a paragraph with the above heading, the perusal of which greatly amused me. The writer, whoever he is (I am surehe is not a Portonian), has given informa- tion to the public which has, doubtless, been received with all the charms of novelty. The publie now know for the first time that the road has been " decli- ning from bad to worse," and they are also informed of what they would not have heard before, that pri- vate enterprise is " sufficiently alive to the importance of keeping the thoroughfare in a passable condition." But a more astounding piece of intelligence is, that the road has been made " safe for traffic "-by what do your readers suppose-by expending £1,000 con- ditionally proffered by the Executive ? Extravagant ! readers, no ; the road has been rendered safe for traffic by the spreading of thirty tons of stone! Messrs. Crawford, Scammell, Hubert, and the rest of you, what a wo...

THE AMATEUR PERFORMANCES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

THE AMATEUR PERFORMANCES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-" On the best authority," I can state that it is decided to repeat the amateur performances at the Theatre, varied as respects the second piece, some time next month. From the same reliable source of information, I am able to add that the profits from the entertainment will be given for some local purpose, but what that purpose shall be is at present undetermined. The amateur corps dramatique, in fixing the destination of their fund, would doubtless wise to be guided by the inclinations of the public ; and these can best be ascertained through the press. It has been suggested to play in aid of the funds of a Samaritan Society-an institution to be formed to relieve distress other than that for which the Destitute Asylum provides. Were such an institution in existence, I know of no worthier object; but unfor- tunately not only is it not launched, but, so far as I know, no steps have been taken for its initiation. Perhaps, ...

MAGILL INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

MAGILL INSTITUTE. We regret that we have been unable, on account, of the heavy legal reports of last Friday and Saturday, and the great demand upon our advertising columns, to supply an earlier account of the soiree at Magill, which took place on Thursday, July 29. We avail ourselves, however, of the present opportunity to bring up our arrears. The immediate occasion of the soiree was the open- ing of the new reading-room, built expressly for the Institute- the grant in perpetuity of which was placed upon the table. The room was crowded to excess by a most respectable audience. It. R. Torrens, Esq., took the chair, supported by the Rev. E. K. Miller, Dr. Wark, J, Howard Clark, Esq., Dr. Taylor, Capt. Scott, &c. The Chairman was introduced by a few remarks from Dr. Wark. Mr. Torrens then addressed the meeting, ne regretted that the time occupied in other pursuits prevented him from preparing a lecture worthy of ihe occasion, but he had been informed that a most agreeable musi...

WELCOME TO MB. GREGORY.

Considerable discussion ensued, the feeling of the majority being that this arrangement would not givo general satisfaction, as the price was pretty generally considered too high.

Where, with a view to the equal benefit of all claimants upon liis estate, a debtor resorts to the Court of Insolvency, every practitioner, retained to protect the interests of the general body of creditors, knows how important it is to fix with notice of an ae-t of insolvency, not only judgment creditors, having final process in the hands of (he Sheriff, but alto that functionary himself. It is, therefore, highly desirable that no doubt exist in respect lo those formalities con- stituting that statutory aefc of insolvency which is essential to adjudication in all ordinary cases, whether of voluntary or of compulsory application to the Court. By the 28th section it is enacted "That if any debtor shall file, in the office of the Official Assignee, a declaration in writing, in the...

The Ad[?]erti[?]er. ADELAIDE[?] MONDAY, AUGUST 2, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

Cí)r lkfttfeüt ADELAIDE : MONDAY, AUG-üST 2, 185S. V»rB drew attention ou Saturday last to a pro- clamation in the (rove,'ii me at Gazelle, intimating that, on and after the l8 til day of August, the Act to prevent the introduction of convicted felons into this colony woidd take effect. From repre- sentations since made ton-?, we have been induced to examine a little more closely the Act in ques- tion, and also the various dates in connection with its coming into force. The arrival of the Firefly, from King George's Sound, on the 21st ultimo, led many persons to express a wish that the Act had then been in operation ; but ive tliink we can very satisfactorily show that the Act «hw then in operation, so far as its authority is con- cerned ; although it certainly was not in operation so far as relates to the disembarkation of the passengers per Firefly. The Act (which was reserved on the 30fch No- vember, 1S«37, for Her Majesty's pleasure), con- tains a clause appointing the time when...

REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

REAL PROPERTY ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-My solicitor advised me this morning not to lend out. money on the new Act, saying there was no security, a9, in case of default, no power of sale was given in the bill of mortgage. On referring, however, to the 53rd section, I see a power ol' sale is given there. How woidd the case stand if I lent on property, and sold at a less sum than I lent ; could I have any claim on the mortgagor ? I think I saw* a letter signed " Henry Prosser," stating that a similar Act was in force in the Netherlands. I believe the Government there charge five per cent, on the value of the property sold, to which even a conveyancer's charge might be pre- ferable. I think law reformers have wrong ideas in their heads. The present Act, if properly worked, would not be expensive, as a purchaser might copy his pre- decessor's deed, and a search might be made for say half-a-guinea ; it is the " sticking on" that frightens the people. Five guineas for simp...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

TO THE EDITOR OP THE ADVERTISER. Sir-Your correspondent G. P. Doolett, in his letter headed " City Watch," has taken upon himself the ungracious task of censuring a most useful and effecient| portion of the public service, namely, the police force of this colony, and he argues in the (to my mind) most ridiculous manner. He saye, " they (the polic should always be on the alert, so that when the cry is raised for assistance they should be on the spot imme- diately." Does G. P. D. know anything about police duty ? I have no hesitation in saying certainly not ; and to prove it, the Pulteney-street constable's beat covers a full mile of ground. Now suppose him to be at the other end of that beat when the murderous attack was made on Thursday night last ; how could he be pre- sent when the cry was raised ? and does not Mr. D. also know that if the police-constable had been within sight or hearing the attack would never have been attempted. This description of complaint was constantly bein...

HONOUR TO GREGORY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 2 August 1858

HONOUR TO GREGORY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE ADVERTISER. Sir-The exorbitant charge for tickets to the public breakfast to be given to Mr. Gregory is evidently in- tended to keep it select and aristocratic. Not being one of the South Australian aristocracy, nor yet an Honourable M.P., J.P., or Government clerk, I do not, in these dull times, think it prudent to lavish twenty-one shillings on my stomach. I am one of the many hundreds of tradesmen who would like to do honour to the " Livingston of Australia." And I am quite sure that he would feel more gratified in seeing the people of South Australia than the few-yes, very few-would-be-aristocrats. Hoping the Committee will see the advisability of reducing the charge one-half, and thus allow the " Blue shirt community" an oppor- tunity of hearing from the lips of the great traveller his trials, privations, and suggestions of our vast in- terior, I am, Mr. Editor, yotu-s truly, not a South Australian aristocrat, but J. E. W. Adelaide, July ...
