THE WEATHER AND THE CHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

THE WEATHER AND THE CHOPS. Tho previously high temperature of the weather was considerably modified by Tuesday's rains, which, how ever, were not so heavy as those which flooded a large portion of the colony of Victoria. The fall was 0.33 inches in Sydney, 0.14 inches at Newcastle, 2 inches at Kiandra, and 1.14 at Eden. The thermometer regis tered about three points lower yesterday than on tho 3rd instant. The accounts from the various districts assure us of an abundant harvest ; but from all quarters, east, north, and south, complaints reach us of an uncommon scarcity of labour, for the crops in some localities being excessively prolific, an influx of farming hands is required to get them in ; so scarce, indeed, is labour, that as much as 1?. per acre or more has to be poid. It is stated that the late sown wheat in the western districts is slightly affected by rust ; but comparatively speaking, tho dry weather has prevented it making much headway, and in some parts of the Southern ...

THE RELATIONS OF THE MOTHER COUNTRY ANT) THE COLONIES. a (To the Editor of the Australian Town and Country Journal.) Sin,-Ona of tho great questions of tho day, both al homo and abroad, is that of "Tho relations of th< mother country and the colonies;" and, strange as ii ' may soem, there is no great public question on whicl intelligent men in other respects, and even statesmen, exhibit a greater amount of stolid ignorance, or a greater want of common sense. I was led to study this question many years since, and especially to ascertain thc movements and develop ments of the public mind on the subject during the great struggle between Great Britain and her American colo nies, nearly a century ago ; and I was induced to pub lish the conclusions to which I have been led in my . investigations respecting it, during a great crisis in our own colonial history. I mean in the year 1852, imme diately after the famouB. gold discoveries of the pro ceeding year. But the question has ...

MINES AND MINING. CAUSES OF FAILURE AND GUARANTEES EOE SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870

MINES AND MINING. CAUSES OF FAILURE AND GUARAN TEES EOE SUCCESS. THE increasing attention now bestowed upon the development of our mining re sources is one of tbe most encouraging signs of * the times, inasmuch as it does not arise from an excitement or furore of the kind that took possession of the community during what was called the gold mania, but comes from a fixed and well-grounded belief in the richness of our mineral treasures, acting on a legitimate desire for the investment of capital in their develop ment. The vast importance of the mineral wealth of the country can hardly be overrated. It is as though Providence had bestowed upon us a strong box-the precious metals locked up in our sterile mountains-which we are now attempting to forge the key to unlock. Every day increases the facilities by which that end may be accomplished, and who can doubt that the ultimate result will be to crown our efforts with success ? To unlock these treasures we possess abund ance of capital-...

The amount of revenue actually received .waa £2,177,970, being £25,000 more than the Esti mate of the Colonial Treasurer in his statement last October. To this sam of £2,177,970 is to be added the som of £30,000, due from the Government of Yictoria, on account of Border Customs. This will make up the sum of £2,207,970, as the revenue of the year, 1S69 ; being an increaso of £162,61-i on the revenue of the year, 1S6S, -which was £2,043,356.

We say to all those in England who wish to promote the prosperity of their country by making elbow room for those who remain at home and making good customers of those who emigrate, Do what you can to induce emigration, to Australia ; for every man who comes here settles upon the land, and makes this couDtry and his home, will become a far greater con sumer of British manufactures than if he went tb Canada or the United States.
