OUR SUPPLY OF PAPER.-We think it due to our subscribers and the public generally to state that the paper upon which we print the Adver- tiser and Chronicle is of a quality inferior to that which we intend ordinarily to use. We have had offers of large quantities of superior paper but it is all of a smaller size than that adopted for the new journals. Paper of the requisite size and of superior quality is not, at present, to be had in any of the Australian colonies. Our contempo- rary imports direct from England, and we have sent home our own orders. Until those are exe- cuted, there is no alternative but to publish upon the best paper we can find, although the best here procurable is much below the quality of what we hope soon to secure.

ONKAPARINGA. FRIDAY, JULY 9. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858

ONKAPARINGA. FRIDAY, JULY 9. Present-All the members- ' A memorial was received from Hahndorf, regarding a road between Sections 5115 and 5117. The Council requested Messrs. Priess and Lauterbach to accompany the Surveyor and arrange for fencing the most desirable line, and also to examine the road towards Mount Crawford, and report at the next meeting. Mr. Collins requested the attention of the Council to a side- ling road near his farm. The Surveyor was instructed to exa online and report. Mr. Priess reported that, with the Surveyor, he had ar- ranged with parties at Neidorf for the construction of a ford at Neidorf. Cost £6. Messrs. Hubner and Roy waited on the Council, and gave their consent to the deviation of a road as adopted by the Council, in Section 5114 on land in their occupancy. The Chairman reported that, in conformity with Mr. Boothby's instructions before the Council, he had paid, on the 5th ultimo, for work on main road, Thos. Leagrim £9 12s. ; James Milne, £5 12s. ...

OUR COMMERCIAL REPORT.-We have been asked whether we intend publishing a daily or a   weekly commercial report. In reply to this en- quiry we may state that it appears to us altogether useless to publish a daily report in the present state of trade. The publication of a daily com- mercial statement would necessitate the frequent repetition of the same matter though under a new date, as so many days pass without anything fresh occurring In this view we are borne out, by the judgment of several mercantile gentlemen whom we have consulted on the subject ; but, at the same tine, we shall be glad to hear anything that may be advanced on the other side. Until trade becomes more active, and transactions more frequent and less monotonous, we think that a weekly statement, with a special report for each mail, would be better than to attempt a daily description when there is really nothing new to state. Of course we should feel it our duty to give special reports whenever any bon...

TESTIMONIAL TO CAPT. KEAN, OF THE UTOPIA. -It will be perceived, by an advertisement in another column, that the immigrants by the ship Eutopia have addressed Captain Kean in complimentary terms, upon their safe arrival in Adelaide. The address evinces warm feelings of gratitude, and is signed by the whole of tho adult passengers, numbering 194. POLICE ACTIVITY.- One of the cleverest per- formances of the police forces, as exhibiting the ability of some of its members, that has come under the notice of the public lately, was furnished in the case of the man Wood yesterday, committed for stealing a watch from a fellow passenger on board the Marion. On Saturday last Sergeant Badman, being down at the Port, casually noticed a stranger speaking to a person whom he well knew, living there. He stopped at the Port some time and then started for Adelaide in the train. When he arrived in town he was informed that a robbery had been committed on board the Marion. He immediately put himself in...

THE VICTORIA THEATRE. - " Our Nelly " was performed last evening to an audience who apparently highly relished the rich fun with which the piece abounds. The whole of the characters were well sus- tained, and the last scene alone, in which Augustus Coddleson (Mr. Greville) is supposed to have taken poison, which turns out to be cream of tartar, to avoid his mamma's wrath upon discovering that he has contracted a matrimonial alliance with her wait- ing-maid, is alone worth a box-ticket. There were some excellent songs by the Misses Nelsons and Messrs. Greville and Nelson ; and the performances concluded with " the Laughing Hyena," in which the principal characters were sustained by the Misses Marie, and Carry Nelson, and Mr. Greville. On Thursday even- ing, the performances will be for the benefit of Miss Marie Nelson, and will consist of the "Lady of Lyons," in which Miss Marie Nelson will sustain the character of Pauline, Mr. Holloway, Claude Melnotte, and Mr. Greville, Colonel Dum...

INSOLVENCY COURT. MONDAY, JULY 12. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] (We regret the omission, by inadvertence, of this case yesterday.) [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858

INSOLVENCY COURT. MONDAY, JULY 12. [Before Mr. Commissioner Mann.] (We regret the omission, by inadvertence, of this case yesterday.) EDWARD POLHILL, King William-street, livery stable keeper, attended on his first hearing. Mr. Donaldson attended for the insolvent, and Mr. J. E. Moulden on behalf of several creditors. Several debts were proved. The schedule was produced by Mr. Colley, ac- countant. Insolvent stated, that in the month of August, 1855, he executed a bill of sale of his entire effects, to Mr. Joseph Gilbert, of Barossa, to secure to that gen- tleman £1,000 by him advanced to insolvent, for the purposes of his business, he added that Mr. Gilbert had, under that instrument, been in possession of all his property, except his household furniture, from the 1st July, 1858. The Bill of sale was made in dupli- cate. Mr. H. Gilbert said he had possession of the bill, and would furnish the Official Assignee with a copy. Insolvent, continued his examination and stated, that the p...

THE ADELAIDE JOCKEY CLUB.-The Commit- tee of this Club have been looking out for some time for a suitable place to hold the Town races. Fenn's section, cast of Kensington, has been recently the sub- ject of negotiation for this object. It appears that the section is already leased for a term, eight years of which are unexpired ; but in consequence of the un- willingness of the present lessee to part with his inte- rest, the Club have determined to select another locality. ACCIDENT. - On Sunday last, a gentleman alighted from his gig on the Magill-road, near Nor- wood ; and having inadvertently left the horse without an attendant, the animal, by some means, slipped his head gear, staining at a rapid pace down the road, and ultimately came in contact with a projection on the   footpath. Fortunately the horse was quickly secured, or more fatal consequences might have ensured ; as it was, a foot passenger narrowly escaped during the progress of the animal. Both horse and gi...

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, 10th July, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858

MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, 10th July, 1858. Telegrams have been expected the last three days on the Melbourne line, but as yet arrangements have not reached sufficient perfection to admit of their transmission. As it is intended to make a terminus station at Mount Gambier for forwarding through messages, the public may soon look for the long post- poned pleasure of telegraphing to both the neighbour ing; colonies. Wheat has been dropping in very regularly for the last three weeks, and has declined during this about 3d. per bushel, though at lowered rates farmers show an inclination to hold back. The weather, which has been unseasonably dry for some time, has been in favour of supplies reaching town, but we hear great complaints of its effects on the sown crops, which will, with any continuance of such dry winds as we have had of late, be seriously injured. In flour there is no quotable alteration in price from what has been ruling during the last month ; a few transactions are taking ...

FREE discussion is the safety-valve of the State in all countries where the love of liberty dwells in the people. The experience of every nation shows that more is to be dreaded from repres- sion, restriction, and censorships, than even from the excesses of popular liberty. Freedom, con- ceded as a right, is usually wisely exercised ; but freedom snatched by force from tyrants becomes, and not unnaturally, both a source of terror and a cause of confusion. The greater the latitude of speech, constitutionally granted, the less the necessity for secret cabals ; and where one person   is found to abuse the privilege of free discussion, half-a-dozen will be. at hand to rebuke him. It is with freedom to express opinion as it is with freedom to vote ; the denial of what is held to be aright, by exasperating the victim of tyranical laws or usages, leads him to set a higher value upon the boon that is withheld from him, than he sets upon it after it is conceded. Believing that t...

THE SILKWORM AND ITS INTRODUCTION. [The breeding of silkworms in South Australia having frequently engaged attention, and some very successful experiments having been tried by colonial amateurs, we are induced to extract the following interesting paper from the Melbourne Examiner, in hopes that it may contribute to the promotion of silk- worm breeding as a regular branch of local industry.] At a time when the attention of the public has been called to the probability of our procuring, from the labours of a native insect, a textile material that will bear comparison with silk itself, it may perhaps he thought not inopportune briefly to glance at the vast interests involved in the production of silk throughout the world, and to consider whether we may not be able to turn to our shores some of the stream wealth created by the labours of the little silkworm. Even if the discovery of a native silk-producing insect should turn out to be of as much value as the most sanguine might anticipa...

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 14 July 1858

The Advertiser ADELAIDE : WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 1858. THE education of the people of this colony is a question second in importance to no other that occupies or can occupy the public mind, and therefore no apology is needed on our part for opening the question at this early period of our career. We are not unmindful of what has been done in the cause of popular education ; we are not unmindful of, nor unthankful to, those pre- ceptors of the rising race by whose labours the   elements of useful knowledge have been dissemi-   nated. But neither are we satisfied with what is   doing. If we are to become a really intelligent community, the whole system of our public edu- cation must be revised. It is not mere defi- ciency in quantity that we complain of, the quality of the education supplied to the children of South Australia is a still more important con- sideration ; and that there is room in this respect for great improvements is admitted and ins...
