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

ANOTHER VALENTINE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir -You wi'l oblige by inserting the enclosed from Miss A. E., in answer to one in your paper of Saturday. I am, Sir, &c, J. C. MISS ADELAIDE E. TO THE HON. T. B. In former times, when cast from power, J. C. to T. R's rescue hastened ; And never ceased till back in power. He was by East Adelaide returned. At Smithfield R. did Clark requite, For his friendship, toil, and slavery ; And his economic pledges kept, By a thousand pounds to Sir D.'a salary. At the Europe meeting all men know The tailor met the Treasurer Tommy, And laid his pretensions very low, For principles he ne'er had any. The cord that bound is severed now, By selfish base ingratitude.; He once stood high, but now stands low, With the electors of East Adelaide. J. C. [The above must conclude this description of poetry. — Ed.]

SEWAGE OF LARGE TOWNS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

SEWAGE OF LARGE TOWNS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— I shall be glad if you can find room to insert in your paper the article on ' The Sewage Difficulty' from the Builder of 2nd November, which I send you. Mr. Baldwin Latham is a gentleman who has had great experience in the matter of which he treats, and has very success fully carried out the irrigation system, in several places. In a late number of the Builder I notice that the town of Reading is about to adopt the mode of utilising its sewage which was being carried out by Mr. Latham at Norwood and Worthing about four years ago, and which has answered the purpose admirably. Mr. Latham is Civil Engineer under the Board of Health at Croydon, where the improvement in the health of the neighborhood has been so great since the system was adopted there as to attract popula tion in a greater ratio than any other part at a like distance from London. The system is that which I believe we must, sooner or later, carry out. The situation of Adelaide i...

ELECTION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

ELECTION MEETING. After the above, as there were so many rate payers present (about 50), a meeting was called to consider the subject of our representatives in the ensuing Parliament. Mr. J. Grimble was voted to the chair, and opened the subject by passing a glowing eulogy on our Constitution, remarking that he considered we should all be justly proud of our civil and religious liberty — (hear, hear) — and called upon all to exercise the right of voting. More especially did the neces sity exist now for all to take an interest in the election of members for tbiB dis trict, for a great crisis had occurred, and we wanted men who would take in hand to grapple with the land question, so that it may be placed on a satisfactory basis before it is too late, for at present, as was well known, the agricultu rists are almost {reduced to a state of pau perism. The South was now being recognised as it deserved, and more especially should we use discretion in the choice of members, seeing that we...

Talbot, in response to a call from the President, opened the proceedings, by saying the protection question would be a pro minent one next session, but this Club had de cided upon free trade. Melbourne had not nrnfited bv protection. Thev had no right to tamper with the existing price of land, and he could not fall in with free selection and deferred payments.

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

WALLAROO. fifrmtt fchn WnTIit/mh Tim** Ven.rnanr 19 1 A man named Sam. Yarra, age 51, was found on Monday .morning last, dead, with his throat, cut. Yarra had been in the employ of the Rail way Company for several years as a truck driver, but two or three weeks since was dis charged, and this, with other' matters brought out at the evidence on the -inquest, appears to have preyed upon his mind, and to have led to bis unhappy end. His wife, son, and daughters went 10 cnapei on ouxioay evening, leaving mm at home apparently well, never imagining that lie contemplated suicide. On their return, be tween 8 and 9, he had left his house. Some of .the family waited up all night expecting him back. Early on the following morning his wife -went into an unoccupied cottage at the rear of the house, and found him lying face downward in a pool of blood, a razor in his right hand, and a large gash in his throat. The medical . testimony proved that both carotid arteries had been severed, and that d...

GUICHEN BAY RACES. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

GUICHEN BAY RACES. . ' f From our own Correspondent.-! Our annual races commenced on Thursday, the 13th. The weather was all that could be * -wished for — a clear and bright day, with a re freshing breeze. The gathering on the course was good, but we greatly miBsed some of our old friends, who were prevented from attending! by the late bereavement in Mr. Dunn's family. There was, I am sorry -to say, a very: poor field of horses in numbers, but those that did enter an appearance were of good stuff. Mr. Walker acted as Judge, the duties of which office he discharged well, but -more so in hunt ing up subscriptions, having, during the day, by perseverance obtained no less a sum than £30. Mr. Todd was again happy in bis old post: as starter, and I need scarcely say discharged the duty to satisfaction. Mr. G. W. Hays and Mr. J. T. Smith were the stewards present, and as far as in their power assisted in the -day's, sport. The first race was the Maiden Plate— One mile anda-nalf ; weights f...

SWEEP: INCREASE v. DECREASE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

SHEEP : INCREASE v. DECREASE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— Many of your readers would like to be assisted in endeavoring to Bolve the problem in dicated above. How is it that the produce of wool is a third part more this year than in any former year? (assuming my informant is cor rect). How is it that so soon after something like £57,000 has been conceded to the squatters (with extended leases, &c), there should arise the necessity of clearing off the surplus stock by '-'oiling down sheep, by thousands weekly ? Your readers have been treated with puzzles of late, and this I think it another. That the car rying capaDilities of runs should have so im mensely improved in so short a space, and those runs should have been so so n overstocked is to many of y»ur readers the puzzle of puzzles. Your readers would, moreover, like to know what kind of sheep are kept by squatters in general, because it is apparent they must by very pro lific Do they have litters? This is very im portant for agri...
