DR. NORMANDY'S INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 5 August 1858
DE. NOKMANDY'S INVENTION. We publish some interesting extracts from a pam- phlet by Dr. Normandy on a method which he has invented of distilling salt water. It is said to possess some very important advantages over the old plan ; two of these are thus stated :-1. It aerates the water and thus makes it pure, wholesome, and, immediately fit for drinking, whereas all other plans for producing fresh water from salt water merely proceed on the principle of the common still, and the water produced by them requires to be aerated by agitation in the tanks, or Other artificial means, and even then is not only very imperfectly aerated, in consequence of which it remains vajiid and indigestible, but is at the same time exceedingly susceptible of being tainted by any impurity in the atmosphere by which it is surrounded. 2. That it produces double the quantity of fresh water from the same amount of fuel. The apparatus, it appears, is as valuable on land as at sea, and might even be made availabl...

DEATH OF MR. RINTOUL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 5 August 1858
DEATH OF 3IR. KLXTOUL. T.O THE EDITO« OF IHK ADVERTISER.. oír-As I generally look lo jon for early news, I am a little surprised at seeing no notice in your paper of the death of " Miv Rintoul," editor of" the Spectator, an announcement of Which appeared in tho \Registers telegram of to-day. It is rather singular that your Melbourne correspondent did not put you in possession of this fact, which, one would think, could not fail to be generally known. Your corre- spondent muai have been asleep to allow the old people to run aui>\ willi the fir«t news. T am, Sir, &o., -¿¡. WIDE-AWAKE. Adelaide; Auguit -J. [The' reason- our Melbourne correspondent did not send us this piece of "news "' is. probably, because he read it in our columns on the lilth of Jilly, on which date we extracted from Hie Daily Heics a biographical sketch of 41 Hues. The fact of Mr. Rintoul" s death was as "generally known." as the English papers and the Advertiser could make it.--EDITOR.]

THE GBEGOKY BANQUET.-We are informed by Messrs. Aldridge & Bayston that the tickets for the Gregory entertainment are selling very freely. It is now known that ladies will be ad- : mitted, and when w e slate the fact that Lady MacDonnell intends to be present, it will be quite sufficient to induce many more to follow. The toasts (so far as at present arranged) are to be proposed and responded to by the Chair- man (the Commissioner of Crown Lands), His Excellency the Governor-in-Chief, Mr. Gregory, Sir Charles Cooper, the Crown Solicitor, the Mayor of Adelaide, and Mr. Brock, of the Port (who was one of Captain Sturt's exploring party.) We believe the list of speakers is not yet quite filled up, and we would suggest that another name from amongst the gentlemen present at the Norfolk Arms meeting would tend to improve the programme.

VICTORIA THEATRE. - " Bclphegor the Mounte- bank," was performed last evening for the last time during tne present season. The piece affords ample scope fe>r the display of talent ; and Mr. Holloway and Miss Marie Nelson, m whom the principal characters were sustained, fully main- tained their reputation. Miss Carry Nelson was deservedly encored m the songs introduced into the piece; and Miss hara as " Henri," made the most of the part allotted to her. Hie evening's amusements concluded with the far-famcel comic drama "To Parents and Guardians." The per- formances to-night will be for the benefit of that universal lavouritc, Mr. Greville, who will no doubt have "a bumper house.

LAW AND CRIMINAL COURTS. &nbsp; POLICE COURT-ADELAIDE. MONDAY, AUGUST 2. [Before Messrs. S. Beddome, S.M., and C. Lyon, J.P.] [The following Police cases were in type for yesterday's paper, but the news per Anna Dixon compelled us to postpone their insertion.] PUBLICANS' LAWS.-John Henry Hubert, of Rundle street, was charged by Inspector Reid with not keeping the outer door of his licensed premises closed on the Lord's Day during the hours of 10 and 12 o'clock in the evening, whereby he had forfeited a penalty of not less than £5 or more than £50. Police-constable Cavan de- posed that between the hours of 12 o'clock on Saturday night and 1 o'clock on Sunday morning last, he saw de- fendant's door open and saw him selling drink. Mr. Moulden, who appeared for the defendant, examined this witness, who said that he saw nothing between the hours of 10 and 12 o'clock on Sunday evening, and the Bench suggested that as the evidence was at variance with the summons, it should be amen...
MILANG. [From our Correspondent.] August 4, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 6 August 1858
MILANG. [From our Correspondent.] August 4, 1858. I am sorry to say that the aphis is extending its ruo ages to a gi eat extent in this neighbourhood. No description of ocgetation »ecms too rank or too dainty for its insatiable rapacity. In my oovn garden it has attacked indiscriminately cabbage», turnips, leeks, onions, and cress, and also weeping oo'illooo-s and fruit trees. As the buds of the latter are not yet opened, they hao-e done no injury to the trees as yet, but the fact of their attaching thcmselo es to the bark, is sufficient to cau»e serious apprehensions for the ensuing summer, as it is not improbable that even the o me may be subject to its attacks. We h.io-ebeen favoured ovith copions rains lately, from the cfTe-OS of ovhich the crops are looking beautiful. I haoe heard of too-o or three cases in ovhich the grub has sheovn itself in the ovhc.it, but not to any great extent. A subscription list has been "opened hero lately, for the purpose of raising funds for the ext...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [From our own Correspondent.] Sydney, July 27th. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 6 August 1858
NEW SOUTH WALES. [From our ooo-n Correspondent.] Sydney, July 27th. What a change a feov months makes in the nature of international feelings ! A little while ago the good people of Sydney overemagnanimously collecting money in aid of French sufferers by the overflow of the Bhone, and public meetings were held, at ovhich orators de- claimed on universal brotherhood. Now, ove are all speculating on the chances of a ooar ovith France, and counting up someoo-hat suspiciously the number of guns which the clever Napoleon has managed to place on our coast undercover of colonising Neov Caledonia. The unpleasant fact stares us in the face that oo-e are comparatively defenceless, oodiile a nao-al force is in our neighbourhood sufficient lo destroy our city. The French frigate Tliisbe came in about a oo-eek ago to provision and proceed to Neov Caledonia, and lies at anchor close under Government House. H.M. suroeying ship Herald lies not far from her. It is a curious fact as illustrative of t...
INDIAN AFFAIRS.—THE VOTE IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. [From the Home News of 25th May.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 6 August 1858
INDIAN AFFAIRS-THE VOTE IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. [From the Home Sews of 25th May. ] The " great argument'" ha» come to a sudden and most unexpected conclusion. Seldom has the House of Commons presented so remarkable an aspect as it did on the night of the 21st of May, oo-hen the debate on Mr. Cardwell's vote of censure ovas to be resumed, and, as eoerybody hoped, concluded. The House was crowded in every part, and even a st ranger, igno- rant of the cause of the excitement, must have been deeply impressed by the hush of intense expectation ovhich pervaded that o_ast assembly. The occa-doio ovas one of unprecedented interest, for it was not merely the fate of an Administration ovhich hung upon the issue, but the mein ¿nions con- sequences oo-hich the decision of the House of Commons in either way, might exert upon the popu- lation of Oude, if not upon the oohole conflict in which we are engaged. As the hour approached for the opening of the discussion, it became ajiparent that an ext...

VICTORIA. [From our own Correspondent.] Melbourne, July 31, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 6 August 1858
VICTORIA. [From our oovn Correspondent.] Melbourne, July 31, 1S58. The oveek that has elapsed since I closed my last report has not been marked by anything but a con- tinuance of the general dullness in all branches which has rided now for so long ; indeed the dearth of com- mercial intelligence is so great that it is difficult to write ovithout giving a repetition of what has already been said. The sanguine noov say that this preva- lence of stagnation in wholesale circles arises from the absence of the May mail and the near approach of the time ovhen the June one ovill be due ; that on arrival of the latter a visible improvement ovill follow. Hoov far their expectations ovill be realised, remains to be seen. ' Excepting two sales of sugar, the auction rooms have not draoon large attendances ; at the first of these, when the cargo ex Pauline et Victoire was dis- posed of, the bidding was pretty spirited. The rates obtained, though fully £2 per ton loooer than those realised for the...

HOUSE OF COMMONS, MAT, 18,"I8. - SOUTH Ars TBALlAN MARRIAGK BIM..--On the 4th of May, Mr. | Schneider asked the Secretary for the Colonies j whether Her Majesty'.» Government liad received from !

Lord Stanley said ii oo'as quite true that the Legislature of South Australia had passed an Act for the purpose to which the question of the lion, gentleman related. A copy of that Act had been very recently received. Some little diffiulty, howco-er, ooas supposed to have arisen in connection ovith it. It had accordingly been referred to the legal advisers of the Colonial Depart- ment, but their report ooith respect to it had not as yet been placed in his...
