FREELING, FEBRUARY 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
FREELING, Fbbeuamt 19. This place, notwithstanding its being situated in the centre of the red rust district, still shows signs of progress. We have six or seven wheat stores, two saddlers' shops, four general stores, one butcher's shop, a chemist, a doctor, iron monger, tinsmith, baker, two or three black smiths, and two hotels, besides numerous private buildings. — I hear that Mr.- Kelly has carried out his contract at isagotrs trap, under 'the watchful eye of the «tationman, to the. sitisf ac- tion of the inhabitants. — There appears to be a movement springing up in favor of local IVLP.'s. A deputation having waited on Mr. John Barrow, of Ashwell, asking him to stand for the district, consisting of Messrs. Johnson,' Kenny, Kruger, and Harvey, received, I believe, a favorable answer. . ? .
GLENBURN, FEBRUARY 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
GLENBUB-N, Febrtjakt 19/ : We have had some lovely weather' lately, though yesterday' there were a few slight, showers. Everything continues exceedingly quiet. The thrashing-machines are busy going their rounds, and those farmers whose wheat is already thrashed are engaged m cleaning up. In some places I fear the winhowing-machioes, ?nnlike Hope, do not tell a flattering tale ; still there are some very fair crops, especially round Cape Jervis. The piece of road known as Din ' ham's contract, which has been in hand so long, was finished and thrown open to the public last week. It has been well rolled, and is altogether a very creditable job. . *. ; ?
MENINGIE, FEBRUARY 13. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
MEN1NGJDE, Feb&ttjutc 13. An inquest was held at the Meningie Hotel on Monday, the 3rd instant, to enquire into the origin of the late fire reported in my last, which was supposed', to have been caused by igui&ble -wadding. The Jury's decision was that the fire wasnotaccidentalbut the work of an incendiary, but that suspicion does not attach itself to any particular person.— A fatal accident occurred on Wednesday, the 12th. to a youth named Alexander Littlewood, 13 years of age, the son of an industrious farmer residing here. The unfortunate youth was ia the act of taking out a gun from a dray, muzzle foremost, dragging it towards himself, when the hammer doubtless caught the woodwork, and theebntentsweredis eharged into the poor boy's chest. Immediately he received the shot he fell, then jumped up, ran about 50 yards, and fell again, attempting to crawl on his hands and feet, and calling on his brother, who was some little distance away, 'Oh, Bill! I am done for,' a...

MILLBROOK, FEBRUARY 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
MILLBROOK, Febetjaby 37. There is not much wheat coming to the milL Last year at this time might be seen a pile of wheat of 70,000 bushels ; now scarcely any, - which speaks volumes as to the failure of the .crops in the No* th-Eastern Districts. — The elections are quietly discussed in little circles, but are gradually spreading ; the land ques tion will be first on the list for the candidates when they come into the field. Several gentle men are named as likely to stand ; among them is our present member, - Mr. A. Hay ; and Mr. Alfred Hardv, of North Adelaide, is named. The members will be pledged to change the present land laws. Party feeling will be cast aside for this ? object ; free distillation' will,* no doubt, be discussed pretty freely, and many other questions too numerous to mention. Captain Robinson, of Golden Grove, is alsn named among the coming men, with what chance of going in, I know not. ' Our district - ought to stir in the matter now, and not leave it fcr the la...
MINTARO, FEBRUARY 14. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
MENTABO, February 14. . ; Our township has for some little past Seen looking very lively, but to-day it was-more than usually so. The sale of wheat by auction (the first in. the North) came off to-day, and was most certainly a success, although the quantity; offered was not up to the advertisement, owing to some of the farmers not comine ub to the mark. About 8,000 bushels of really good' wheat were put up, and all -sold but a few hun dred bushels, at prices varying irom 6s. 6-2. to 7s. If the farmers are alive to. their own. in terests they will do their utmost to encourage these sales, for those who have done so to-day have obtained from 3d. to 6d. overy any prices offered previous to idle sale. February 17. ?: ; During the past week great quantities of wheat have been brought into this township.; The place has been, literally speaking, crowded; with drays, delivering here or passing on to Auburn and Port Wakefield. It seems to be : plentiful in this locality, and from all I see a...
DR. LIVINGSTONE'S SAFETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
DR. LIVINGSTONE'S SAFETY. fFrom the Cane. Mail, December 20.1 Mr. Young and his volunteer companion, SXi. Faulkner, have accomplished the task entrus ted to them by Sir Roderick Murchisbn, the Geographical Society, and the British Govern ment, with admirable success. In July last they arrived here by the mail stea-ner Celt. Within a -»reek they proceeded to the east coast in H.M.S. Petrel ; they were landed at one of the mouths of the Zambezi about the beginning of August ; and yesterday again they left in the Celt for England — their mission satisfactorily accomplished, and . the safety of Dr.' Livingstone clearly established. Mr. Young, the leader of the expedition, has kindly shown us the chart of his travels, and indicated exactly what it was he did, and what conclusions he established. This we shall ' now briefly recapitulate. In August he and his party were landed at .the Zambezi, an understanding being come to that they would be back there again on or about the 1st of Decembe...
EXTRACTS FROM GREVILLE AND CO.'S FILES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
EXTRACTS FROM GREVILLE AND CO.'S FILES. From a telegraphic summary in a Natal paper it appears that the colonists are occupied in an endeavor to develop a coal-field which they have discovered. The seams are from 18 inches to4feetin thickness. They are also work ing some mines for copper, and, singular to relate, have come upon some tools and smelting places of great antiquity, belonging evidently to a former race of natives. Sugar cultivation is making fair progress, as also that of arrowroot and maizena. Faku, the old Chief of the Amaponda. Nation, is dead. He was a stanch friend of the English. Several people had been put to death on the charge of having bewitched him.

MOONTA, FEBRUARY 17. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
MOONTA, FEBBtTABT 17. At this season of the year large numbers -of persons visit the sea, both mornings and even ings, for. the purpose of bathing. It is neces sary, however, that they be careful not to ven ture out too far. as a large shark was seen by several persons last week, sporting on the edge of the lightwater. — An elderly. man called Samuel Yarracut his throat-last night at Wal laroo. . He was found dead early this morning. He was formerly pointsman on the tramway near Wallaroo, but was discharged about a fortnight ago.

Mr. Fuller and Mr. Mitchell were about to drive out' some of Mr. Bentley's children for an airing. The children were in the cart, and Mr. Fuller for some reason or other went to change the winkers, when the horse suddenly bolted, knocking him down, and proceeded up the street. It had not gone far before the cart capsized, throwing the ...
A HUMAN FROG. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868
A HUMAN FROG. Mr. Frank Buckland, the Inspector of Fishe ries and editor of Land and Water, furnishes that paper with an account of the curious per formances of the man who calls himself ' Natator,' who appears in a large aquarium at Cremome Gardens every evening, and, whilst under water, executes a variety of feats. Mr. Buckland says :— Getting close to the aquarium I beheld ' Natator' go through the following subaqueous performances — Firstly, he stands on his head ; his head touches the bottom of his aquariatn, . his feet are at the top,- like a couple of huge fishing floats. This is called the 'minute trick,' and is performed first in order to show the length of time that 'Natator' can stay under water. The ' NatatorV' second per formance is to swim up and down the tank several times — twenty, are the most — without coming once to the surface to breathe. He twists himself right round, and gives a slight push with the foot at each end of the tank, so as to reverse his motion.' Th...
