THE Chronicle and Mail. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22,1868. DEATH OF SIR DOMINICK DALY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

SATUKDAT, FEBRUARY 22, 1868. DE&TEL OF SIR BOMmiCK DMiT. For ihe first time in the history of South, .Australia have the . inhabitants of this loyal province been called upon to mourn the decease of .their . Governor. Sir Dominick Daij is no more numbered amongst the living j andwe are sure that we shall not be accused of using words1 oi conventional eulogy when we^M.y that his decease will be lamented throughout the Length and breadth of the colony. We never had a wiser, better, or more popular Governor. In whatever light regarded, Sir Dominick appears to advantage ; he suners in comparison witn none oi wa predecessors ; whilst from the failings that attached to several of them he was singularly- free. Firm 'in resolve, ? de liberate in purpose, courteous sand, gentlemanly in manner and' bearing-r-no matter how trying the circumstances— thoroughly ia-partial, eminently cou rageous, full of kindliness of heart, always ready to identify himself -with every movement that could...

THE INTERIM GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

THE INTERIM GOVERNOR. Consequentonthedeath of Sir Dominick Daly, the temporary government of the colony devolves on Lieutenant-Colonel Hamley, the senior officer in command, of Her Majesty's forces in South Australia. During the session of 1865, the Hon. Mr. Baker called attention to the importance of having it . clearly settled who should temporarily administer the government of the colony in' the event of His Excel lency's absence or death. A message was received from the Governor with reference to the subject, in which he said— ' Thel Governor, however, has no difficulty! in informing the Council of thej existing provision .for the adminis tration of the Government in the case of the death or absence of the Governor. In such an event the tem porary administratien of the Government would devolve upon the senior officer in command of Her Majesty's land forces in the colony. In the absence of any such officer, the Brigadier-General in command in Victoria is instructed either to proc...

THE ACTING GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

- THE ACTING GOVERNOR. Lieut. -Colonel Hamley is now Acting-. Governor of this province and is likely to remain so for at least six months. We have already apprised our readers that although the term of Sir Dominick Daly's tenure of office was near . its expiry, the Home Government did ilot contemplate his immediate removal. Consequently it is improbable that his successor has yet been appointed, and our new Governor will therefore retain the reins of office till after an exchange of post between Adelaide and London. In the selection of a new Governor, and in his prepara tions for the Voyage a few weeks would most likely be consumed, so that we may fairly look upon Colonel Hamley as the Queen's representative for at least six months. Mr. Finniss was Acting Governor from December, 1854 to June, 1855 ; and although the long tenure of his ad interim appointment was occasioned by Sir Richard MacdonnelTs exceedingly tedious voyage, there was not that delay between ihe removal 6f Sir Henr...

SHEEP-STEALING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

SHEEP-STEALING EXTRA ORDINARY. We do not think we shall do any in justice to the two men who are committed to take their trial for sheep-stealing by calling the attention of our readers to the facts of the case, as elicited [in the examination by the Police [Magistrate. The case, so far as it has [come before the public, shows how a [daring and unscrupulous man might com mit a serious robbery, and, with a mode rate share of good fortune, escape detec tion ana punisnment. jx is true tnat Gipson and his partner or dupe, which ever Drew or Marshall may be, have not had that good fortune, and that their plucky attempt to possess themselves of other people's property has signally failed. But the attempt showed an audacity and self-reliance but seldom ex hibited by thieves in this colony. It must be admitted that bold attempts at crime are very rare with us. Our thieves, as a rule, .confine their operations to thepetty larceny line.. In this case, however, sup posing the facts to be as th...

GOING A-HEAD. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

GOING A-HEAD. [communicated. ] : In commenting upon the financial pros pects of the colony at the present time, we recently took occasion to remark that in so far as the existing state of things is unsatisfactory, it is mainly to be attri buted to the unwillingness on the part of the people to accept colonial life with those conditions that are inseparable from it to a greater or less degree, and we will now give a few illustrations of what we mean by this, and endeavor to prove that so lone as it is continues, so long may we expect public expenditure to increase in a greater ratio than our ability to maintain it. And here we may digress for a moment to observe that the same rules which are invariably applied to questions of household economy (at least by those who profess to act with prudence and forethought), are precisely those which should guide us in the affairs of the State. The difference is simply one of degree, and it is no answer to say that in the one case the expenditure...

THE YOUTHFUL POOR IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

THEioUTHi'UJjPOOR IN LONDON. - We do not say that there is no poverty or destitution in this colony, for in the most favored- parts of the earth these are found in a greater or lesser degree. But when we compare the social condition of the- people here with that of the poorer classes in England, we see how much higher is our condition in point of real comfort than theirs. There are but few, it anv- in this colonv who cannot obtain a sufficiency of food. The actual essen tials of existence are comparatively cheap. Butcher's meat, which those occupying the lowest stratum of social life in Eng land but rarely taste, is here within the means of alL Indeed portions of slaughtered animals, which the London poor gladly purchase, and from which they make comfortable meals, are to a great extent wasted in Adelaide. Sheep's heads,- for example, of which a celebrated Scotch divine said, they afforded' a large amount of 'fine confused feeding,' and which form a favorite diet in the old country,...

THE COMING ELECTIONS. MEETING AT BLUMBERG. A meeting of the electors of Gumeracha was held at the Travelers' Inn, Blumberg, on Mon day afternoon, February 17, 'for the purpose of considering who are the most fit and proper persons to represent the district in the ensuing Parliament.' There were over 30 persons pre- sent, and the chair was occupied by Mr. Samuel Randell, the Chairman of the Talunga District Council. The Chairman, after reading the advertise-,   ment convening the meeting, explained that thereason the Council decided upon Blumberg as the place of meeting was because it was the most central township in the district. He re- marked that as Chairman of the farewell dinner to the Hon. A. Blyth, he might mention that Mr. Alexander Hay was present, and signified his willingness to stand as a candidate; and he also intimated that the other day he received a letter from Mr. A. B.

POLICE COURT— GLENELG. Saturday, Febbcaby 15. Before Messrs. E. W. Andrews, J.P., Mayor, and R, B. Colley, J.P.) George Frederick Biddle, aged 8, and Louis Pennington, aged 7, were charged with breaking into the shop of Henry Harvey Wright, Nile Street, and taking therefrom sundry toys, value 16s., on February 8. Several witnesses were examined, who proved that the boys had re moved two boards from the front of the shop on the afternoon mentioned, and taken away the toys, which were afterwards found by the police in the house of Biddle's mother. It appeared that Mrs. Biddle, being a widow, and obliged to earn her living by washing in various houses, was wholly unable to keep her boy out of mis chief. Mr. Pennington undertook to look after his son for the future. The Court committed Biddle to the Industrial School at Brighton for three years as a neglected child, but handed over Pennington to his father's care. (For remaindei' of Law Couais see page 10.)

COMPLIMENTARY DINNER TO MESSRS. MILNE AND TOWNSEND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 22 February 1868

COMPLIMENTARY DINNER TO MESSRS. MILNE AND TOWNSEND. On Thursday, February 20, Messrs. Milne and Townsend, the members for the District of Onkaparinga, were entertained at a public dinner at Ferk's Hotel, Woodside. There was a small attendance—a circumstance, no doubt,     attributable, amongst other things, to the con- flicting advertisments which had appeared re- specting the dinner. Mr. W. Grasby, the Chair- man of the District Council, presided, being supported on his right and left by the guests of the evening. The vice-chair was filled by Dr. Esau. The usual loyal and patriotic toasts were given, including the sentiment "The   memory of our departed Governor, Sir Dominick Daly," which was drunk in solemn silence. The CHAIRMAN then asked the company to fill their glasses and drink to the health of their representatives, the Hon. W. Milne and Mr. W. Townsend. He was sure they had served the district well, and deserved their thanks. They had ...

THE ELECTIONS. MEETING AT PORT ADELAIDE. Oa Monday evening, February 24, a public meeting of the electors of Port Adelaide was held at tha Town Hall, Port Adelaide, in order to hear from the several candidates their views on the principal political questions now exciting attention. About 400 people were nresent. The Mayor (Mr. J. M. Sincl-iir) was voted to the chair, and opened the proceedings in the usual way. He said they knew Mr. Bower, who had represented them in Parliament, and had given the electors satisfaction. Mr. Coglin had also represented them, and done the like. Mr. Hill they knew well at '. the Port, and although he had not been tried in Parliament, he was, he felt sure, quite fit to represent them. He thought it was very difficult to represent Port Adelaide district, as Port Adelaide and 'Wallaroo had conflicting interests, and yet a member should act impartially towards the two places. He then called upon Mr. D. Boweb, who said it was three years since he was called ...

PRESERVING MEAT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — In reference to the above, in your leader of this afternoon's Express, you say — '* It has been suggested, too, that legs of mutton might be salted down and shipped as mutton hams, in large quantities to London,' and further on — ' The only doubt we have heard expressed as to the feasibility of preparing mutton hams for the English market is -with reference to the effect of our climate on the preserving process.' I beg to state that no doubt need be felt on the matter, as I am master of a tried process for preserving them, for any length of time, render ing them (provided they arc fat) nearly equal to the best pork hams. The process is not expen sive, and I shall be happy to make it known to parties interested, or through your valuable paper. The fore-leg or shoulder cannot be cured to last in hot weather by any process short of actual cooking. You are at liberty to make any use of this you tTiinir proper, lam, Sir, &c., GEORGE STRACHAN....

THE NEW MARRIAGE ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

THE NEW MARRIAGE ACT. to the EnnroB. Sir— Permit me to trouble you with a few words mere bv way of correction to the ' Hints and suggestions on the New Marriage Act' published by you on the 3rd February. In the fourth paragraph it is said that no re sponsibility will rest on the officiating minister in the case of a marriage by Registrar's certifi cate, rsut on comparing clauses 18 and 24 of the new Act it will be seen that the declaration to be taken by the Registrar previous to the issue of the certificate will not absolve us from the necessity of taking a declaration from each party to the marriage in the form of the third schedule. The fourth paragraph should read — ' 4. In marriages by Registrar's certiaate the officiating minister will see that the certificate is not void by the lapse of three calendar months from date of issue (clause 30). He will also re quire both parties to sign the declaration (third schedule) previous to the performance of the ceremony.' . Another correc...

PRESERVING MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

PRESERVING MEAT. We are glad to find that meat-preserving is being taken up with great interest in various parts of the colony. A fair attempt will! be made to get our surplus stock into the English market, and to see whether it is feasible to turn our abun dance to account in providing for the necessities of our less favored friends at home. In England meat is scarce and dear ; in Australia it is abundant and cheap. Mutton, which costs 9d. or lOd. per lb. in London, can be purchased here at a penny or twopence. Our squatters are suffering from an increase in their flocks, and they do not know what to do with that increase. .Boiling down was thought to be the grand outlet for the surplus flocks, but we hear that even this mode of disposing of our redundance is profitable only under certain circum stances. It is no use boiling down sheep in poor condition, as the yield of tallow is not sufficient to pay the expenses and leave a sufficient profit to the producer. Fat sheep give a fair...
