NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

NEW GUINEA. [Extract from a traveller's report, in the Leisure HowrA ' New Guinea, the native home of the birds of Paradise, is undoubtedly the most fertile island on the globe, and for some reasons, in comprehensible to me, the most neglected.' It is a land teeming with natural wealth. Each gentle breeze, that wandera from its shores, is laden with the fragrance of spice groves that clothe its fertile plains ; yet the fairest part of the island is left unnoticed, aud restless com merce-seeking men pass it by, as though it was some enchanted land they dare not approach too closely.' TO THE EDITOB. Sir — If it be true that there is some likelihood of a railway from Victoria to Burke Town, and that in that district there appears to' be enor mous copper mines (besides Peak Downs dis trict) ; that rich gold mines are al'o turning up in Queensland, I do not see why we cannot push our rails still more in that direction than ia already proposed, and thus come into connec tion with these No...

THE TORRENS DAM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

THE TORRENS DAM. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — The above subject has yet to occupy the time of the Council, and many will try to win the £25 prize for the best plan and specifica tion. I hope some one of practical ex perience will come forward ; we may then be sure of a good substantial work being carried out, provided always that the plan and specification of such a person be accepted and acted upon. If the b;&t horse is allowed to leap the ditch, I have no doubt whatever but a good and excellent work can be carried out for the sum of £3,000, not less. I have had many years' experience in works of this sort, and I trust the Council nor any of the gentlemen who will compete for the prize will not deem me presumptuous by offering a few remarks on the subject. The span of the Torrens is, say, 125 feet, the depth of water to be retained, say 16 feet. The base for such a depth should not be less than 30 feet, and the batter on the face should be two feet to one, the batter to the back on...

AN EXTRAORDINARY SHOWER! TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

AN EXTRAORDINARY SHOWER ! TO THE EDITOB. Sir — A curious phenomenon occurredin Angas Park yesterday, February 3rd, and as it might not have extended- much beyond that locality or attracted general notice I furnish you with the following statement, thinking it desirable to call attention through your papers to what appears to me a most singular and unaccount able occurrence. lam, Sir, &c, WE PLUSH, Farmer. Angas Park, Feb. 4, 1868. ' About half-past 4 o'clock yesterday after noon the sun assumed a very unusual appear ance. It first became dark, and then turned to a blood-red color. Presently we observed large Dans oi various colors — green, crimson, yellow, blue, and black — nearly as large as the moon, floating slowly round about the sun. After a short time they began gradually to ascend, and having attained a considerable altitude descen ded rapidly, burst, and cast a brilliant shower on the earth, covering ourselves, the ground, and the waterholes, and a goat who was tethe...

THE NEW POLLING PLACE AT THE GLYNDE. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

THE NEW POLLING PLACE AT THE GLYNDE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — From placards posted at different places in the East Torrens district it is under stood that no elector can vote at the Glynde without paying to Mr. Chapman, the Returning Officer for the district, the sum «f 2s. 6d. I think, Sir, something must be wrong in this ar rangement, and I think, if carried out, pre judicial to the interests of the district. Many voters in the locality ref eri ed to can not afford to pay the sum named, and on the other hand could not afford to lose half a day to go to Norwood to record their votes ; conse quently, the interests of the district must suffer. I believe it to be quite right that a polling place should be at the Glynde, but if only one or two pay the sum charged for the transfer, they, of course, can claim to vote at that place, thereby causing an unnecessary expense, when at the same time the expense would be justified if the whole of that part of the district had no half-a-crown restric...
