VERANDAHS. M0REW00D, ROGERS, & CO., beg to direct attention to their CORRUGATED GALVANIZED TINNED IRON, as forming the neatest, as well as the strongest and best VERANDAH ROOF that can be erected in the colony. It can be put up at a moderate expense, as it requires no framework, excepting, the wall plates and columns. ROOFS covered with this material are much cooler than Slate, as will be shown by actual experiment on application at the office — are light, durable, and not so costly as Slate The Rates of Insurance will also be found a consideration of importance where valuable buildings are concerned. For PUMPS, CISTERNS, and WATER-TUBING, it is by far the best material that can be employed, as it keeps the Water pure and wholesome under all circumstances. In the important towns of Newport and Cowes it is used exclusively by the Water Companies for their fittings, and to a greater or less extent in the principal cities and towns in England and the United States. BATHS, BUCKETS, DEED-BOXES, &c., made of Galvanized Metal to order, and kept in stock. ? GUTTERS, riPES, WINDGUARDS, and CISTERN-HEADS can always be supplied without delay. The ships Briton and Ancient Briton, lately from England, have brought an increased supply. ; Offices, Leigh-street, Adelaide. DR.

Testimonial from Mr. George Ottaway, of Bundle-street, Adelaide. Dear Sir— Acting upon your suggestion, I tried Dr. Graham's Pills, and have taken them regularly ever since, and I am happy to inform you that I find them keep down the bile, and in other respects act so beneficially, that I feel much better now than I have done for the last four years, although I tried during that time many other remedies which proved wholly inefficacious. : ' i . As you wished me to let you know how the Pills acted, 1 feel much pleasure in writing the above, which you can make public if you wish. - ? ^ J - I am, yours very obediently, ': G.OTTAWAY: To Mr. W.Dashwood, Adelaide. *:? - ; Sold in Boxes at One Shilling each ; and may be had ol W.

PORT ADELAIDE SCREW-PROPELLER COMPANY. JL SCHOONER intended to be Fitted with an 'O. auxiliary SCREW-PROPELLER being now UPON THE STOCKS, at Port Adelaide, and the steam-engines, apparatus, &c., in course of construction in the city, it is proposed to complete the undertaking by means of a COMPANY, with a CAPITAL of £2,500, in 500 SHARES of £5 each ; which will be sufficient not only to accomplish the building and outfit, but leave a Surplus of £440 as Working Capital. A MODEL of the VESSEL, as she will appear when ready for her first voyage, has been exhibited at Calton's, Port Admiral Hotel, and will be shortly sent for public Inspection to the Royal Admiral Hotel, Adelaide. The sailing qualities of the vessel are intended to be first-rate, and the Engineer is confident that, with the steam power and auxiliary screw, a speed of eight to nine miles an hour may be accomplished, without the sails. As to the Working Expenses, they have been estimated by a thoroughly practical man at £70 per month ; and as the earnings of the Government Steam-tug have averaged £200 per month, with about five hours' steaming per day, it is thought that, even with eight hours' steaming out of the twentv-four, the profits of the Screw-propeller Schooner will be at least as much as £130 per month, because she will perform a variety of services for which the Steam-tug is not adapted. The object of the originators is to have the vessel ready within four months, and to place the undertaking at once under satisfactory inspection and control. With these views, it is desirable to get the requisite Funds Subscribed without delay, and to appoint from the body of Subscribers a Managing Committee or Acting Trustees, who wiJl make the Money Calls in accordance with legitimate requirements, and eventually regulate the voyages — which are intended to bo limited to the Gulf and the contiguous seaboard. In the meantime, the undersigned has undertaken to receive applications for Shares, and to furnish information as to the contemplated voyages, pleasure trips, &c., C. BOWEN MENDS, Secretary pro tern.

THE LATE DISTRESSING ACCIDENT BY FIRE. pHARLES COLLINS, the sufferer by this y_J calamity, is a worthy and industrious working man. Saving rented a section of land at Yankalilla, he had irected his slab house, laid in his six months' stock of pro risions, clothing, &c., and commenced operations as a dairy 'armer. Mr. Collins was in -Adelaide when the accident )ccurred. His wife had gone some distance to drive home \ cow, and on her return found the house, with all it con tained, destroyed by fire. It is not known with certainty how the fire originated, but it is supposed that cinders were forced up the chimney, ind lodged in the thatch, by a whirlwind passing over the bouse. By this accident a deserving family, seven in num ber, are deprived of their all, and left in a state of entire destitution, ' ? % . This is a case which commends itself to public sympathy, and it has been thought advisable to open a subscription list for the purpose of ministering aid to the sufferers. Donations will be received by ' ? The Rev. D. J. Draper, Gawler-place Mr. John Colton, Hindley-street ; Mr. Robt Hawkes, King William-street . . And at the office of this Paper. ' ' '
