NEWS FROM SALT LAKE—THE MORMONS. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 7 August 1858
NEWS FROM SALT LAKE-THE MORMONS. The latest news from Utah is to the effect that the Mormons are still undecided as to the locality for their permanent settlement. In accordance with the circular of Brigham Young, they hive abandoned the northern settlements, and are now residing in the southern section of the territory. A large number of them are making preparations to settle in a hitherto unknown and unexnlored region of country, laying between the old Spanish trail to New Mexico and the Humbolt River on the south, west of Fillmore and east of the Sierra Nevada. Captain Dane has started for the new country with a train of some 70 families-140 men are said to be engaged already there with teams nutting in grain and preparing shelter for their families. The valley is said to be of sufficient extent to support 500 families, and if the account I have heard of it to be correct, it must be a lovely spot ; and that it has thus long escaped exploration is to be accounted for from the fact...

STREET OUTRAGES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 7 August 1858
STREET OUTRAGES. TO THE EDITOR ov THE ADVERTISER. Sir-Having seen in your invaluable journal so many suggestions relative to protecting one's self, I would suggest to the existing authorities that instead of the police walking their beats as they now do, straight beats, they should be divided in squares or subdivisions. For instance, I would sav, from Mor phet-street to Rosina-street, round by Currie-street up by Light-square, then meeting the man on the op- posite side ; the beats to be so timed as each man if not meeting with an obstruction could meet and com- municate. By this means the lanes and alleys would be traversed by the constable, and which, in the wri- ter^ opinion, would prevent the frequent robberies that are eeeumng in the city and would not require more men. I. would respectfully give a hint to the Police authorities to be more sharp in their ap- pointments, not to select youth or physical power as the essential qualification, but rather seek those men who may offer...

COMMERCIAL. MARKET REPORT. Adelaide, August 5,1858. There haä been a slight improvement in business since this day week ; and; trifling as it may be in the effect produced upon prices ruling, it may be taken as an indication of returning confidence, especially as no intelligence has been received from the other colonies during the week calculated in any way to strengthen the tone of our market, either for colonial or imported j produce, or manufactured goods.
