"MORE COPY." [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Post Shipping Gazette, Farmers and Commercial Register — 22 July 1876

'MORE COPY.' 'Once in August, wet and dreary, sat thisj writer, weak and weary, o'er a memorandum ! book of items, used before — book of scrawling hard notes rather items — taking days to gather t hem in hot and s-il'try weather (using up j much time and leisure) pondered we the6e items o'er. While we conned them, slowlv rocking (thro' our minds queer ideas flocking) came a quick and nervous knocking, knocking at the sanctum door. 'Sure that must be Jinks,' we luutterred, ' Jinks that's knocking at our door, Jinks the everlasting bore.' Ah ! well do we remind us, in the walls which then confined us, the 'Exchanges' lay behind us and before us, and around us, and all o'er tho floor. ' This way,' 'Jinks desires to borrow some newspapers till to-morrow, and 'twill be relief from sorrow to get rid of Jinks, the bore, by opening wide the door.' Still the Visitor kept knocking, knocking louder than before. And the scattered piles of papers cut some rather curious capers, being lifted by t...

Victorian' [From an occasional Correspondent.] *? XUCS a good deal of imptafcmaeiit hi cett&in direc tions. No argument is needed to prove that it has failed to meet the class it was specially designed to reach. The compulsory clause is practically a dead letter, with very little prospect of & speedy resurrection. The Local Boards of &Ari ce are perishing in the very cradle of their existence, while many_of the teachers are venting their grievances through the columns of the Press. The important question of : eligious instruction iB causing a good deal of unpleasant friition among us. We claim the bight to give Scripture lessons | before school hours, that being the uiost suit- ' able time both for ministers and children.

OPEN COLUMN. [No manuscripts attended to unless accompanied Vpitfclhc brma filenames of the writers, which will not Ve published without their consent.] THE FOOTPATHS OF PORTLAND » ESTATE. TO THE EDITOU. Sib — I should esteem it a favor if you could firid a corner iu your open column for the scribbling of a crusty old bachelor. The subject, for the publication of which I crave your clemency, will doubtlessly be considered by your readere as dry and uninteresting. Uninteresting it may be, but dry it certainly is not, as I found, to the eternal detriment of a new pair of pants, The footpaths of tlie Portland Estate form the burden of my grumblings. On & recent occasion I had business which brought me to the Port, and so closely was I occupied that the sombre ?hades of evoning had begun to close in ere I had finished. I had, in the innocence of my heart, re solved to visit a friend residing in the afore said ' low'-cality, and accordingly set out on shanks' pony to search out h...

TOPICS. We note tliat- a recent sale of old pictures at home realised £45,000. Tlie ' European Mail' says : — ' The Prince of Wales' animals are now safely lodged at tlie Zoological Gardens, Lon don, and, although not definitely arranged in their new quarters, can be seen by the public. Only one mishap occurred dur ing their journey from Portsmouth, a fine Cashmere deer, the only specimen of its kind, having escaped from the train on to the line and broken its neck. The tigers, five in number, consist of two full-grown aud three young ones, two of which, ' Tom' and ' Minnie,' are tame and playful, the third, however, being fearfully savage. There is also a cheetah, or hunting-leopard, and the largest panther known, presented to the Prince by the sergeants of the 10!)th Regiment. The antelopes are black-buck, and are intended to run in harness, as are also the two tiny buffaloes, ' Serapis' and ' Tauris.'

PORT AUGUSTA, JULY 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Post Shipping Gazette, Farmers and Commercial Register — 22 July 1876

PORT AUGUSTA, July 10. For 14 years or more a railway from this northwards has been talked of, and schcmes projected to secure it ; but,-«iMj - some barrier has always arisen to pre vent their being carried 'out. Each suc ceeding Parliament has had the matter' resuscitated ; at every election candi dates have been questioned on this all important topic ; and on several occasions when it seemed almost a certainty some' opposition has been brought to bear. Personal interest, party spirit, rival ports, or disputed routes, have passed it on from session' to session, until hope deferred has made the heart sick, and we had almost given up in despair and determined to wait untd another repeti tion of the drought of 1864 and '5 should show that the losses incurred tcr the squatters and country were sufficient to have half constructed it. ' A change comes o'er the spirit of my dream' ' and we now realise it as 'Au fait accompli.' Its having passed the third reading in the House of Assembly i...

TELEGRAMS WRECK OF THE 'AGNES.' Special Telegram. Port Adelaide, 5 a.m. Thursday. (From our Special Correspondent.) Port Macdonnell, Wednesday, 19th. City of Hobart left here this morn ing at 3.30, and arrived off the wreck at 7 o'clock a.m. The Master of the 'Agnes,' ob serving the steamers lights, succeeded in burning a blue light to show his position, which was immediately an swered by the steamer. The lifeboat left the steamer at 7.15, On arriving at the wreck the 'Agnes' was found to be lying on a ledge of rock, broken in two, and split fore and aft. The mizenmast went by the board as the boat came up, and the men were seen holding on to the cabin fittings, the sea making a clean breach over her. Much difficulty was experienced in approaching the wreck near enough to get the men off. At last one of the crew of the ' Agnes ' stripped him self, partially fastened a line round his body, and jumped into the sea and swam towards the boat. In doing this he was repeatedly engulfed by ...

PORT ADELAIDE AND ITS PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Post Shipping Gazette, Farmers and Commercial Register — 22 July 1876

PORT ADELAIDE AND ITS PRESS.   [COMMUNICATED.] Governed as this country is by those who profess to govern it in accordance with, public opinion, and who appear to regard as public opinion those views which are pressed upon their notice with most persistency and force, it behoves each section of the community to provide itself with means whereby it may bring its wants and its wishes duly under the notice of the powers that be. If the colony were governed by men able (like Bismarck), to foresee future require ments, and to make timely provision for them irrespective altogether of public inattention or popular clamor, every one of the governed class might safely go on with his own calling in peace — undis- turbed by the cares of State ; but then the political value of the Press would be very small indeed. We are not now advocating this state of things, but simply pointing to the fact that it does not exist here ; and that, therefore, we ought not to act, nor to remain inac...

We attended the House of Assenib'y on Wednesday for the special purpose of listening to any motions bearing on this question that might be brought before the House, and accordingly took a seat in the Reporters' Gallery.
