?^t 3&nxm§ tëjirmrirU. '* This is true liberty, when free-born men. Having to advise the publie, may speak free." -Euripides. Adelaide : Monday, October 4, IS52. REFOBMS OP OUR POLITICAL CONSTITUTION. : BY a majority of nine, in a full House, I every member being present, our Legislative ; Council has resolved that it is expedient to 1 amend the political constitution of this colony. On this general proposition there ( will probably be little difference of opinion ; out of doors, in spite of the able speeches : of Mr Grwynne and the Registrar-General, j j The public mind was made up on this I j question prior to the first election of repre- j 1 sentatives, and such steps were taken by I their people in the first exercise of their elec i toral functions as efficiently to tecure some practical realisation of their wish. Hence the apathy charged upon them now,-the absence of petitions on the table of the House, the quietude out of doors, the general state of calm expectancy. Th...

SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SITTINGS. Wednesday, September 29. (Before Mr Justice Cooper.) RoBiH v. CAMPBELL.-The Advocate-General appeared for the plaintiff, and Hr G wynne for the ! defendants This was a special sitting of the Court, as npon a former occasion there had not been a sufficient number of Jurors in attendance. The Plaintiff's Counsel objected to one of the Jurors then present, on the ground that he bad walked down to the Court with one of defendants' solicitors. The learned gentleman however declared his willingness to go to trial with even 11 Jurors. The Advocate-General expressed his burprise that the Sheriff had not summoned sufficient Jurors to form a tales. His Honor said that the Sheriff had no power to do so. This was a day fired by agreement, and must be considered as an adjourned sitting. His Honor aßked M r Fisher if he had any objection to such persons as might now be found on the Jury. Mr Fisher said he could not assent to the propo- sition of his Honor. It was no...

ADELAIDE GOLD CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 4 October 1852
ADELAIDE GOLD CIRCULAR. There is nothing striking to be noticed in the news from the Echunga Diggings this week, if we j except the increase in the Bomber of new licences ? issued. The obtaining of Gold appears to pro- gress favorably, though little is said about it. On Monday last the rain fell heavily and continuously, which would check operations to a considerable ex- tent ; and this, with the previous wet state of the ground, has hitherto prevented sinking to any great depth in the bottoms of the gullies, which are gene- rally found to be most productive. A nugget of about an ounce and a half waa brought to town this afternoon. The quantity of gold deposited in the Assay Office during the week has again decreased considerably ; on Tuesday amounting to 3,355 ounces, and on Friday to 2,888 ounces, principally the property of diggers or their families ; the late high prices pre- venting much from being bought for assaying. For some time back the greater part of what has come into t...

MAKING THE MOST OF A BISHOP. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 4 October 1852
MAKING THE MOST OF A BISHOP. About fifty years Biuce, in the village of Nuneham, lived one Thomas Wilford, who filled the distinguished posts of parish clerk, parish sexton, and parish shoemaker. He was an eccentric sort of a body, proud of his authortiy and offices, and a tho- roughly matter-of-fact man, excepting when he ventured into the realms of fancy in composing *' eppitys" (epitaphs) for which he was famed- Many of the neighbouring churchyards still bear rich evidence of his genius i& that line. Mr Wilford was also much addicted to taking liberties with the Psalms of David, making alterations in Sternbold and Hopkins, or Brady and Tate's versions in order to give eclat to any village event; or, as he termed it, "'dapting 'em to the 'casion." An instance of this kind occurred io the year 1805, when the Bishop bf the Diocese, being on a visit to a]| family in the neighbourhood, signified his intention of preaching in Nuneham 'Church on the following Sunday. This tras a...

THE LEGISLATIV IS COUNCIL. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28. Mr Hall and the Collecpr of Customs were absent. f Hoads and Bridges. Mr ANGAS moved- * "That a respectful Address be presented to his Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, requesting him to place on the Estimates the sum of, je3tt,00u for Roads and Bridges, iii addition to the arrears of the last year, to enable him to employ in such works any surplus labour that pay arise from the probable influx of population fron Europe during the coming year." He introduced the question to the notice of the House on account of the peculiar condition in which the colonies of New Holland were at prest nt placed, and more especially as no sum tor repairing the Roads in 1853 had as yet been placed upon the Estimates. 90,000 per- sons might shortly be expected from England, in addition to those who being disappointed at \ the diggings would no doubt return to this colony.
