THE SIZE OF FARMS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

THE SIZE OF FARMS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — In my last I promised to mention the size of farms which are found by experience in England to be the most remunerative ; but before doing bo I shall again quote from my author, whose whole life was devoted to agri culture, and who endeavored to compel the land to yield a paying increase. His efforts met their reward, for by them he left a competence, the land responding to his skill in dealing with it. He insists that farming requires study; that the youth must be trained to excel ; 'that bis education as a farmer is incomplete if he is ignorant of those principles which constitute a thoroughly practical man. He enumerates the requisites, and says, ' In addition to the usual education, those intended for agriculture should go through a course of practical farming.' He begins with book-keeping, chemistry, botany. Cheniistry and botany assist the farmer in dij coveriug the resources of the land, and in turn ing it to the best account. The selec...

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

ASSISTANCE TO FARMERS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Reading in your paper the report of a visit of a deputation to the Government on the subject of farmers' distress, several thoughts came to my mind, which I take the liberty of sending to you. I quite agree with the Chief Secretary that it would be unjust to other parts of the com munity if the Government assisted the farmers only, as all classes will suffer l-y this great calamity ; and though all Mini tries feel anxious to assist, they seem to be puzzled to find the proper remedy. But, Mr. Editor, the farmers are the hardest working people of this colony, and by looking over the export table of cereals only of the last ten years, every colonist will agree with me that through the farmers this colony has come to the position it now holds. There is not the slightest doubt that great distress exists amongst them, and help they must have somewhere; and as the public at large have benefited by their industry and perseverance, I think the publ...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. New York, December 14. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

LATEST TELBGElES. fFrom Greville & Co.'s files.! Mew York, December 14. It is reported that President Johnson has sent a message to the Senate, assign ing the following reasons for the removal of Mr. Stanton: — The lack of proper respect shown by the Secretary, who at tempted, in defiance of the President, to retain office under the provisions of the Tenure of Office Bill, which Mr. Stanton, with the rest of the Cabinet, had pre viously -denounced' as unconstitutional. Furthermore he says that Mr. Stanton was the cause of the New Orleans riots by withholding from the President the in formation that the Federal Commander at New Orleans asked for special instruc tions relative to the anticipated riot. It is reported that President Johnson further states that Mr. Stanton's suc cessor has already saved the country millions of dollars, and that the Cabinet are now entirely harmonious in reference to the reconstruction policy.

STEELTON, FEBRUARY 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

STEELTON, February 17. Harvest operations are nearly brought to a close, and many know 'the worst now, although .we are .greatly blessed to what many are in our crops, still I don't think the. average yield will be more than eight to nine bushel per a re ; and really the farmers seem to be an nnforhinat.fi class, for what with hierk rents and slight crops it is anything but e couraging. I j hear of several who 'think of trying their I fortune in Albury, and I believe a good many would go if they had capital ; but after rents are paid there is not much left for anything else. '. When one is charged 15 per cent, interest for back rent it takes the gilt - off, and we hope the land shark's day is nearly done. — Mr. G. W.. Coles delivered a temperance lecture on Monday evening, 10th iastant, to a tolerable audience, and at the close three signed the-pledge. — In the wheat-buying line -Mr. Rayner, of Marrabel, seems to excel the buyers this seawMVgiving nearly.

RHYNIE, FEBRUARY 13. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

RHYNIE, February 13. A large fire was observable here onTuesday and Wednesday hut, from the direction of the Alma Plains, but owing to the season of stubble burning, no one took any notice of it until in formation was received by the police that a large amount of property in the shape of grass, fences, &c, had been destroyed. Immediately on receipt of such information, Police-trooper Mason started off to the scene of conflagration, and from the nature of the fire, and evidence col lected, he at once communicated with a J.P., wh - thought it quite desirable to hold an inquest to investigate the matter. Accordingly an in quest was held before Mr. &. M. Cole, J. P., and a jury of 12, of whom Mr. B. Dooley was chosen foreman. The enquiry took place in Mr. Bennett's hut, on whose land the fire first originated. The evidence threw no light on the subject, hut it was quite apparent that the fire was caused through carelessness or malice. The following is the ^evidence , add...

SALISBURY, FEBRUARY 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

SALISBURY, Febrt/ary 17. There is very little news to write about from this part '. Everything is fearfully dull*;-, and money out of the question altogether. During this week the District. Council - has let a large quantity of stone for road purposes to various farmers, in small lots, so as. to alleviate the distress existing among the farmers. 'Election matters ''eem to be attracting very littleattention. Some think the late members will go in unop posed, others are inclined to introduce fresh blood onto the field. ^— There is a great difference in viewing the Railway Station this year to what it was* last ° year this time, not knowing where to stack the wheat, now hardly seeing -any on the platform long together.

NOARLUNGA, FEBRUARY 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

WOABLUifGA. February 19. The scarcity of news compels me to begin by naming the weather, which has been most delightful for the last 10 days in this, -the hot test month of the yer, and long may it con tinue. There has been an appearance of rain during the last two days, and I believe a few partial showers have fallen here and there. — The mill continues busy, and' had the season been favorable, would no doubt, under present circumstances, have had a superabundance of work. The . harvest has not yielded some of our fanners .sufficient,.; for seed, and in a few cases, not enough for flour for their' home consumption. Many did not cut their crops at all, and have 'positively nothing. These persons are favorable to having assistance from Government, whilst those who are in easy circumstances, Aand.Ihave corn in their barns, either from last' year .or this, or both, have a contrary feeling. All I have conversed with, who 'have not got. seed wheat, or the means to buy it, would be saved ...

OAKBANK, Februasy 19. Trade is very dull at the present time, and great anxiety is felt as regards the coming: winter, as though some direful calamity were' looming in the distance. Our farmers are quite disheartened about growing wheat,- a great many not getting the seed back, and several are now trying their lack at gold-digging, which X believe from 'what I have seen will pay better than farming. Messrs. Roe and Sons are washing some real nuggety gold out of the surface stuff, from elevated, ground, a short dis tance from Balhannab. Church. Messrs. Wied hafer, Mount, and others, are sinking about 'half a mile 'below Balhannah, neat1 the main road, and have found a very good prospect. An old Calif ornian digger being on the .ground, .and seeing a -small quantity of the dirt washed, expressed his satis faction, and stated that with proper appa- i ratns it would pay well for working.— On Monday, February: 10, the children of the Sunday-school in connection with St. Thomas's Church, ...
