THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, 18th October. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, IBth October. Not much is actually being done in business, although- tbe panic has passed away. Goods have moved rather more freely and a steady improvement in trade is expected. In shares there have been a few transactions, and in the share list the column for latest transactions has much fewer blanks than a week or two ago. I notice that Adelaide Banks are at par, Gas at £1 2s. 6d- premium, and Aerated Bread at 4s. discount. Other shares that promise well are firm, and the fear of sacri ficing what is good has passed away. Tbe Burra Company has held the half-yearlv meet ing, the director's report with the captain's being very promising. It is intended to push on the working of the mine with fresh energy. At a special meeting, held immediately after the usual one, the directors obtained authority to sell a number of sections scattered about on the road to and beyond the Burra that had been held for tbe convenience of teamsters...

FINNISS VALE. The weather has been fine lately, but rather warm, particularly on Monday and Tuesday, ?when the sea was very calm, and looked so enticing that a number of people were induced to take a plunge in the cooling and refreshing element, which they enjoyed immensely. The warm weather has also brought out the snakes from their long torpor, several having been destroyed during the past week. The weather, however, has since totally changed, and heavy rains hare fallen. The usual weekly meeting of the Institute was held on Monday evening, when readings, &c, were given by members. A brisk debate was also entered into, but was adjourned until the next meeting. A letter from the Rev. Mr. Maughan was read, in which he stated his willingness to give two lectures while down, and it was unanimously agreed that the offer should be accepted.

CAPE JERVIS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866

CAPE JERVIS. The Talisker Mine looks much as usual, -the lode in the deepest part- of the mine. being seven feet wider composed of quartz, mundie, and silverlead. It is thought that the lodes in this mine will improve in richness as a greater depth is attained. If this opinion should prove a correct one, the shareholders will eventually fee amply repaid for the capital, pexseverance, and energy bestowed by them in developing the mine. Our correspondent says : — ' The gold dis covery referred to by your Finniss Vale correspondent is not far from the Talisker. The sample assayed yielded 8 ozs. 16 dwts. 9 grs. ija the ton. I have seen the little button obtained, and I was also shown a sample of the same stone that was assayed. Jt is a native arseniate of iron, containing very little silica, coated with protoxide of iron.'

SOUTHERN RIFLE ASSOCIATION'S MEETING AT WILLUNGA. The Southern Rifie Association's fifth annual matches commenced here on the morning of the 18th. The weather at first threatened to be wet, the mists which hung over the adjoining hills not having been dissipated Bince the thunder storms of the previous day and the previous night's rain ; but as the day advanced, with the exception of an occa sional shower, with slight puffs .of wind, the weather proved to be not so bad. as was anticipated.

A DANGEROUS PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866

A DANGEROUS PRACTICE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHEKIf AROHS. Sir — A valuable dog has bean poisoned this week at Victor Harbor. He was found dead within five yards of bis home. The dog was registered, and had also on such a collar as is required by the Act; but as it is impossible to discover the poisoner, of course there is no redress. I wish to make a few remarks on this subject. A chemist has stated that he -would supply *ny person with poison (strychnine or otherwise), who would sign his name in a ' Doison book.' Is this the law? Is this the only restriction on the sale of poison ? Is it not necessary to make any enquiries as to the character of the bnyer, or the object for which the deadly drag is required? Is signing a name any preventive of carelessness ? It might perhaps in caso of crime lead to the conviction of the prisoner ; but what satisfaction or consolation would it be to ~ parents in case of a child being poisoned through carelessness to know who caused the death. And...
