MR. BABBAGE'S EXPEDITION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 5 August 1858

MR. BABBAGE'S EXPEDITION.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir--If the announcement contained in your paper of this morning, that "Mr. Babbage is not more than 90 miles from Port Augusta," is a fact (and I have no reason for doubling it), it is one which deserves the serious attention alike of the Government and of the community. What the real progress of that gen- rleman and party is, has been hitherto studiously kept from the knowledge of the public. At intervals it is true, we are favoured with long despatches from Mr Babbage, informing us to a nicety of the dip of the sandstone or mica schist in that part of the world, or of the varieties of some of the many scientific instru- ments he has burdened himself with; but information as to the practical progress of the party is either modestly withheld, or so~vaguely given, that a plain matter of fact statement such as yours of this morn- ing, comes as a great piece of news to nearly the whole of the public, and I think...

WE hear a great deal at the present time about street outrages and midnight marauders, and we shall doubtless continue to hear about them, unless some energetic means are taken to strike terror into the offenders. It is of course very proper to call for increased police vigilance, but policemen cannot be everywhere at once ; and as to augmenting the force, the Commissioner w ould doubtless be quite willing to appoint more men if the public are willing to pay for them. But it must be remembered that policemen are expen- sive luxuries, as we shall discover when the Go- vernment present their "little bill." Ii or are wc quite sure that an increase in the police force would be effective in putting a stop to the evil complained of. It is when the cat sleeps that the mice play : and as a correspondent in our Open Column recently remarked-'. if a policeman had been in Pulteney-atreet, in all probability the outrage upon Mr. Frearson would not have been committed." But wovld not an outrage ...

The Advertiser. ADELAIDE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 5 August 1858

?\)Î luuerfa. ADELAIDE : THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 1858. THE Associated District Chairmen yesterday addressed themselves to a very difficult opiestion, namely, the roads of the colony-who should make them, who should take charge of them, and who should pay tor them ? The proposition submitted to the Association, and winch formed the groundwork of the discussion, was that the Government should lay out and construct all the main lines ; that when laid out and construc- ted, they should then be placed under the super- intendence of the Distinct Councils through whose districts they passed ; and that the ex- pense of maintenance should be defrayed out of the general revenue, aided by a general assess- ment upon the property of the country, should the revenue be insufficieut to meet the whole outlay. The meeting passed the first resolution, rejected the second, and adopted the third iu a modified form. Our report of the discussion is rather lengthy, but it will repay perusal on the part of all...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir-The debate which took place yesterday at the j Chamber of Commerce, as to whether a memorial should be adopted to the House of Assembly, praying that . moiety of the Land Fund should be set apart for purposes of Immigration, does, I think, call for some public notice beyond the mere newspaper report of the proceedings ; although I think that quite suffi- cient to open the ev es of the public wide enough to enable them to jud«j;e as to what would be the conse- quence to the colom at present, had it been agreed to adopt the memorial, and had the House of Assembly agreed to pass such a resolution : although I have little fear of such a contingency a<« the latter, in a Parliament comprised amours is of gentlemen who study the public interest. What are the arguments used by the supporters of the resolution in the Chamber of Commerce? Why, the arguments of its Chairman (Mr. Tomkinson) amount commercially speaking to this, that itvvillpav thi...
