THE BALLOT BOX. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

THE BALLOT BOX. One or two correspondents, with an eye to the approaching elections, have ad dressed us with reference to the insecurity of the ballot - boxes: The point chiefly insisted on is the absence of an official seal for securing the boxes after the poll ing is over, and until they reach the hands of the Returning Officer for the Province. One correspondent states that having been engaged at a country polling booth, watching the interests of a particular candidate, he was surprised to see the local Re turning Officer — after locking the box and applying the sealing wax — take a shilling out of his pocket and use it as a seal. Of course— -despite the red rust — a shilling is not such an uncommon coin but that many persons may have one, and, there fore, any individual in charge of the box with a shilling in his pocket and a bit of wax can easily remove and restore the seal. -Neither are the locks of the ballot boxes so intricate as to be proof against the possibility of being ...

OUR WINE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

OUR WINE TRADE. At the meeting at Woodside Mr. Townsend referred to a subject which has, on several occasions, been ventilated in our columns, namely, the importance of forming a company, or in* some other way establishing a commercial organization for turning to the best account the pro duce of our vineyards. Many thousands of acres are now covered with vines ; the vines, by increasing age, are rapidly aug menting the quantity of grapes produced ; a very considerable amount of capital is invested; the produce of wine gains rapidly upon the demand for local consumption, and the question— - ' What shall we do with our wine,' be comes one of growing urgency. There is now, doubtless, a great quantity of wine consumed in the colony, although the home trade' is very far from havingreached its complete development ; but even when this ultimatum w obtained, we shall need a market beyond our own territorial limits. And now is this market to be secured? As a matter of course we can no more f...

THE GOVERNMENT AND THE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

THE GOVERNMENT AND THE - FARMERS. The Government have given their reply to the various memorialists who have ad dressed them on the subject of seed wheat, but it is by no means a conclusive reply. They neither say they will give relief nor they will not. They simply say that ' no individual case has yet been submitted which would justify them in affording relief. This looks like an invitation to personal appli cants. One thing, however, is clear — deputations will do no good. The Government are not io be moved by general statements such as are made by deputations, for if they were, many sad tales have been told which, we should have thought, would have amply ' justi fied' such 'interference.' We there fore advise our country friends not to. send up any more deputa tions. It is only time wasted, and . travelling expenses thrown away. The Government want to decide each ' indi vidual case ' on its own merits ; and those, therefore, who are reduced to ask relief at the h.^n-~lg of the M...

Agricultural and Horticultural THE POTATO PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

%rolterri w^^t^jM THE POTA^Oiiii&NT. BY CUTHBEB2!?mi~ioitsiffil!(. F.R.S. Of the origin and prevention of the. potato disease we are at present as little informed as when it first -made its appear ance. My own experience with a variety of dressings applied' long before,' and at the time of planting, have led to very few useful results^ By far the most practical conclusion to, which these experiments have tended is that early planting arid early raising is the best prevention of the disease. In turning to the prize essay of Dr. Lang I find that some Devonshire growers had accidentally arrived at a similar conclusion. This was the case where the potatoes were self-planted. The seed, therefore, had remained in the ground during the winter, and the plants were very wide apart. The effect of this planting at wide intervals has never yet been well examined. On this question Dr. Lang gives the result of two experi ments. He says: — 'The ground, a wheat-stubble, was manured early in...

SHRIVELLED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

SHRIVELLED WHEAT, Much discussion has taken place withre ference to the sowing of shrivelled wheat. It has been doubijed whether it retained its germinating power at all — in other words, whether it would spring up if sown. Some have denied that it would, but the majority of witnesses* have maintained that wheat may be much shrivelled and would still grow. The Rust Commission have collected a mass of evidence proving that shrivelled seed will germinate, and does germinate, and that very good crops have— tOs matters of fact — been repeatedly raised from shrivelled seed. This coincides with what we have all along said on the subject. We have quoted from scientific writers and from -ractical farmers in support of the opinion that shrivelled wheat will grow and yield a crop, . but we have never advised the using of the very worst samples of last season's growth. Some of the wheat that we have seen has been so miserably bad that one could scarcely believe the vital germ was in it. Howeve...

THE YIELD OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

THE YIELD OF WHEAT. A few days ago the Chief Secretary, when addressing a deputation, referred to the lowest. average yield in the colony, and said the district of Alexandrina showed the lowest average according to iheGovernmentreturhs. Mr.W.M.Craw tora, unairman ol tne Aiexanarina JJis trict Council, has written to the Chief Secretary, stating that he was mistaken in his reference to the particular district which had the lowest yield. He says, referring to the .mistake which he ob served in the Express ;? — . ' You are made to say that Alexan -drina was the. poorest district, and there the return gave 1 bushel 42 lbs. I am certain that you have unintentionally, and from a lapse of memory, mentioned Alexandrina for some other district hav ing no higher average than that men tioned by you. ~ The published average of Alexandrina is 4 bushels 36 lbs per :acre.

THE FUNERAL OF OUR LATE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

THE FUNERAL OF OUR LATE GOVERNOR. The wonderful and frequently rapid mutations of human affairs have been strikingly exemplified in . Adelaide within the past few months. Two ceremonials, both unparalleled in the history of the colony, have followed in such quick suc cession as to appear almost identified in point of time. Two pageants — widely different in their origin, but equally national in their scope— have ' made patent to the bodily senses the reality and sincerity of profound public sentiment. It is but as yesterday when South Australia put on the gay attire of festivity, | and rejoiced as she never rejoiced before; and now, with the details of that merry making fresh in recollection, South Australia mourns as she has not mourned before. We never gave to friend or guest such a welcome as was lately accorded to Prince Alfred ; and we have never yet followed to his grave one whose departure moved so many hearts to sorrow as did that of our late beloved and respected Governor. ...

Sporting. TOM SPRING AND THE PRINCE REGENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868

[?] TOM SPRtNG AND THB.PBINOJE BEGENT. iProin JTofe* and Queries.] It is' more than probable that the statement of -3ebnge IV. driving Tom Spring to a fight is . a myth.. The first fight which brought Spring into any prominent notice in the prize-ring was' the battle which came off on Jlickleham Downs on April 1, 1818, with Painter. Spring was then looked upon as .a novice— the .odds being 7 to 4 upon Tainter ; but Spring defeated him. ' Spring's next «SEay was witH Carter, on May I,dl8i9, on Crawley Downs, in which he was again the victor. In a description of the fight and 'itsj attendant circumstances, it is stated 'the amateurs ,preseni wejre of the highest distinction, many, iiobletnen and foreigners of ra'ak being[ ob 4he ground.' ?Tb mention is madelof royalty; aud it'u' scarcely possible, vicious* as the age was at that? period,' that the Prince Begent would even be present at the fight, much less drive down one of the comba tinti.

His first report was dispatched front . Port Denison, under date Yth January, and his second is dated Adelaide, 18th February, 1868. We con fess that we find it difficult to characterise these documents in such a way as to do justice to them. Happily, neither of them is very long, bat as specimens of a cemarkable style of writing, uniting the sententiousnes&of Oap'en Guttle with the shetorical swell and unparalleled copious diction of Mr. P.

ORIGINAL POETRY. A LAMENT AT THE GRAVE OF SIB DOMINICK DALY. As warriors mourn their chieftain, Or tend its leader brave, As patriot mourneth for the king He bears unto a grave ; So mourn we South Australians Bereft of him— outhead — Whose gentle leadership ne'er gave Offence to those he led. Who lived at peace -with all men, Who ruled, our land in love, Who died, amid a people's grief, Who rests in heaven above. Oh, happy, noble, honored chief, Oh' blessed spirit gone, How great art thou when all doth bless, And none thy memory scorn ? Few, few from earth are passing Without the frowns of men ; All seem to love and honor thee— We hear not one condemn. Tes, ? rest in peace ;' so reverently— Down in its last, low bed j While solemn music floats around. We lay the hoary head. We know thy spirit restetb, In harmony and love With those of varied minds below, Now one in heaven above — Where sects and creeds are all unknown, Where error ne'er creeps in ; Earth and her trammels cast away, ...

Among the corps-students of Heidelberg there were none wilder or more reckless than the Baron Steinberg and Emmerich von Helmerstadt.
