TEE OLD TREASURER AND THE NEW. For some time past it has been known list Mr. Fowler was in a very bad state of lit-fclib, and during the last few days it waa (?rut: rally understood among his friends and }-olilicitii!£ well iuforined concerning cur jent evtuts, that he would be corn jwllrd to repipn bis pusi'.ioa in the Wiiistry us Treasurer.

STEPHENSTON, MAY, 6. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
STEPHENSTOX, Mat 6. I am glad to hare to record a very nice fall of rain on Wednesday last. Although not so heavy as wished for it was undoubtedly wel come. Some fanners have a nice qamtity oE rain in their damp. I think what nas already fallen will start the wheat, and it is to be hoped there will he enough to bring it oa well. Oftitlo are low in condition, and in many oases it will require great care to get them through the cold weather. — It is said that gold has been found at Stephenston totvnship, but. X cannot asy for certain that it is gold. The discovery of a pay able gold field or any other mineral of value in this locality would be a grand thing for us, aa at present things are dreadfully dull, aad there is no immediate prospect of much improvement. A prosperous season would of ooarse materially alter the present state of things. A light rain fell during the greater part of last night. This morning it has beenrfiining cearly all the forenoon.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
TO THE EDITOR. Sir— As a resident of Teiuwie I cannot let the repoit of the deputation that waited on tbe Minister of Education piss without correcting some of the erroneous statements with regard to the Terowie Post and Telegraph OrfioeB. As TAx. W. B. IlouubDvel!, M.T?.. said in iatro Juciug the deputttiou, it was a matter ia which the in habitants of Terowie took a very lively interest. The statement that the population was rapidly increasing to tbe south and south- west of the railway reserve would have been quite true twelve months ago; but let our inemHer drive through the township and he will find he made a mistake, as there have been upwards of fifty buildings erected within the last twelve months north on the west side, of the reserve. All the manufacturing businesses are situated to tho north, and the employes are as quickly &s possible building ottiges for themselves as near their work as possible. I am especially surprised at the Bsv. Mr. Sueyd saying that cine-t...

THE FRENCH POSTAL, SERVICE 10 AUSTRALIA. rFrom the Melbourne Araus of Mav 9.1 Accounts have appeared in the press wicu* re gard to a new steam postal servioe from Mar seilles to New Caledonia, to be subsidised by the Government of France. We are able now to give detailed particulars of this important enter prise. The servioe is to bs from Marseilles to New Caledonia, via Suez, Aden, Seychelles, Beunion, Mauritius, King George's Hound, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney. It is to be con ducted by tbe Messageriea Maxitimes Co., who are to perform thirteen voyagea a year ia all, outwards and homewards.

TEROWIE POST AND TELEGRAPH OFFICES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
TEKOWIE POST AND TELEGRA.PH OFFICES. TO THE DDITOn. Sir — I notice that pressure ia being brought to bear with a view of enooavoring to influence the Government in their decision as regards the site of the proposed post and telegraph offices at Terowie, and from reports I gather that the building would perhaps be in progress had ic not been for tbo interference of the members for the district. This X very muoh regret, as the Bite of the present temporary telegraph office at Terotvie is very inconvenient for the travelling public. There is another parallel cute at Hallett, which I cannot forbear mentioning. Arriving at the railway station bearing that name, and wishing to continue my jouruoy by the same train, I have on moie than one occasion had to dispatoh a telegraph message, and in each instance had to run the risk of it beiog delivered at the tele graph atation more than a mile distant. This. to say the least, is not a very desirable state of things, and unleBS the railway site ...
ATTEMPTED MURDER AND SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
ATTEMPTED MURDER AND SDICIDE. FFrom the Melbourne dqe of Ma; 4 '1 A tragedy was enacted early yesterday morning at a house of ill-fame in Kussell-stroet, near Flindera-itreet, whioh may result ic the death of an unfortunate young woman, naaitfil Amy Lewis, alias Laura Mitchell, alias Nigtitiogtle. Ihe circumstances under wni:h tue ti*s& «as committed areas follow:— A man nam-d Harry Colley, a betting man, vi&ited tbe house at Boaat 5a.m. yesterday.

HAMLET BRIDGE POST-OFFICE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
HAMLEY BRIDGE POST-OFFICE, TO TKE BTJITOK. Sir— Allow me to call attention to vshe want of a lamp or two in front of the above buildiug. It is really pitiful to see people groping about in tha dark endeavoring to find ttie delivery window after the arrival of the evening mails. But there is a much greater reason why a light should be placed there. A flight o£ steps over four feet high extends the whole length of tho building. Up and down these steps it is neces sary to pass, and they are also used by passen gers and others passing to and from the trains. Tke general opinion is tbat there will be bones broken on these unfortunate steps before loug. The people of the township are proud of their beautiful post-office, and it is a pity this stumblingblock should bo allowed to exist. — I am, &o., JAMES DDTLE, Jus. Hamley Briuge, May 5.
