IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 10 November 1866

IMMIGRATION. We regret to observe that there is to be another attempt in Parliament to interfere with the course of imniigip.tion. AVe Jiad hoped that this question was settled, for the present at any rate ; that wbile it was ad mitted that during a time of jirculiar and «nforcse^n depression it was not advisable to add to thjesupplj- of 1al:br, vet, that it was held ifr be.pe4efe8afj:.&rAb,e %%|!fo&9&kc .colfmy lhat j there should be Government immigration, either assisted or wholly at the public expense. We hare always, since the last agitation on this subject, understood that the feeling of Parliament on the matter was, that while it was desirable to stop immigration for a time, it should bfi in the power of the Government to reiipw th-? supply whenever such a policy would be for the good of the country, and consistent wiih fairness to the working men, and with, the duty we owe to those we may induce to leave their native land.

REVIEW. VERMONT VALE: BY MAUD JEANNE FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 10 November 1866

REVIEW. VERMONT VALE: By Madu Jeanne Franc. We have read this tale with some attention. South Australia cannot boast as yet of many authors, and, as colonists, we feel desirous of lauding all that belongs to us, whether in literature or art; but honestly there is much in this lale to which we are compelled to take exception, though the motives under which the book was written are, without doubt, pure and excellent. The attempt to blend religious teaching with the amusement derivable from love scenes, or the painting, in glowing colors, the wickedness of innocent amusements, as dancing. 'soig singing,' and the like, are erroneous and out of taste. We have reason to believe that Maud Jeanne Franc is an assumed name. If we thought our own language too.poor io -upply us with terms, we might adopt the hackneyed oncof a 'nom de plume,' but we prefer plain English, and we wish the fair author were of our tase, for she would then not have admitted a fatsft concord like 'petite morceaux,' in...

THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 10 November 1866

THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COURT. The Melbourne Ai^gus thus describes the exhibits in that portion of the Exhibition devoted to South Australia, and we cer tainly appear to be very meagrely repre sented : — ' This colony, though not next to New :*'outli Wales in the date of its establishment, is second in rank among our neighbors in population and advancement. Although there has been considerable apathy displayed in respect to this Exhibition, the South Aus tralian court presents a fair show, not so various, perhaps, as some of its neighbors, bnt in many ways far risher. The represent ative Commisioner here is Mr. B. Herachel Babbage, an old colonist, and son of the eminent calculator. 1 le haa been unsparing in his exertions to get the court in order. Si»uth Australia cannot be called a manufacturing country. Its great sources of wealth are in copper, wool, and wleat. We may dispose of the question of wooi by stating at once that this not being the season for wo...

CLARENDON. fFrnm nnr nwn dnrr*»cnnTif!pnt.1 Clarendon, November 6. We have Tiad some very hot weather lately, with frequent showers of thunder, lightning, and rain. In some parts the 'take-all' is still in active work, and the crops are very indifferent} while some have greatly improved since my last. Hay-making will soon commence, and the average will be about one aud a half, tons to the acre. Potatoes look remarkably well, better, in fact, than they have done for some years past. The vineyards and orchards give promise of an abundant yield, with the ex pftntion of anrip.nt.s and T»p.ars. of which in some places there are none on tbe trees. Labor is scarce, and there is full employ ment for all. The junction of the Bull's Creek-oad with the Happy Valley Branch, is at last commenced. So much for circumlocution on the part of the parties concerned, fjr money has been voted, and many applications made, and the survey ing of the work brought before the Board for two years. . .

TO TrtE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN' ARGUS.

INDIA. London, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866

INDIA. London, September 29. A deputation has waited on Lord Cranborne, relative, to the famine in the Bengal and Madras Presidencies. He emphatically assured them . that further help was unnecessary, Government having appropriated ample funds towards the relief of those who had suffered by the famine. An appeal to private charity was therefore discouraged. The deputation after wards waited on the Lord Mayor, and informed him that they considered the interference of the public unnecessary. London, Oetober 1. The Times of to-day publishes an article on the Indian famine, which approves the result of the deputation recently announced to have waited on the Lord Mayor to discuss the advisability of raising a public subscription in England for the relief of the sufferers. It concludes by strongly urging that prompt measures should be taken by Government for the irrigation of land in India. London, October 11. The Home News mentions a rumor of. tho recall of Sir Wm.
