MILANG. Milang, November 15. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
MILANG. TFzom oar own Correspondent.! Milang, November 15. There is very little stirring here at present in the way of business, and I have little news to write about. The late stormy wet weather has interfered materially with hay making operations, although from the good that will accrue to the wheat crop and pasture lands, farmers were glad to welcome it. The arrival of the new steamer for the Lake Alexandrina Steam Navigation Company from Goolwa is looked forward to with a considerable degree of interest. She is ex pected here next week. A meeting iB how being held in the Primitive Methodist Chapel for the purpose of establishing a Recbabite Tent in Milang.
THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, November 15. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
THE METROPOLIS. (From ©nr own Correspondent. J Adelaide, November 15. It appears that if .the remonstrances of tbe Australian Government had no effect upon the P. & O. Company, the threat of establishing another line of mail steamers have produced a most salutary result. Instead of repeated delays and breaches of contract, mail after mail arrives at the appointed time, and we have begum seriously to expect and calculate upon our regular budget of news about the 10th of each month. The favorable f newB from tbe old country was very welcome ; and if trade is not immediately quickened we Baay expect brighter days a few months hence. The continuance of cold and stormy weather has not much injured the hay, and these late rains will bring on the wheat crops on tbe plains nicely. In the Parliament matters have been going on pretty'quietly. In tbe Council on Tuesday the Hon. J. H. Barrow moved for a return of the balances at the Banks, urging that it was most injurious to tbe intere...
FINNISS VALE. November 14. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
FINNISS VALE. [From our own Correspondent.] November 14. The weather has been very unsettled during t e pastweek — one day warm, tbe next quite cool and showery. Yesterday, and the day before we had some very heavy rain, indeed yesterday it rained nearly the whole day, with short intervals. The effect of the weather is apparent in numerous colds and the prevalence of toothache, faceache, &c. Strong south-westerly winds have been blowing for some days, which have prevented the arrival of the regular trader, the Analgista, which is nearly a week overdue. The late rains have as far as I have observed, been beneficial to the crops, which are for tbe most part in blossom, and look rather better than their appearance a few weeks age warranted. It is expected that the average yield per acre will be from 12 to 14 bushels. The bay harvest is light this season, and this rain will tend to injure much that is not * yet carted. Shearing is now over, and the clip is good, as was expected....

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. [From the Adelaide Papers.! VICTORIA. Melbourne, Norember 9. The review has been a great success. About 4,000 volunteers turned out. The Governor was present. The 14th was not represented. The torpedo at Barwon River was fired successfully. The weather was fine and cool. It was a general holiday. Melbourne, Norember 10. The town is still full of holiday-makers. A nugeet weighing 500 ounces has been found in the Lady Don claim at Ballarat.

THE TENDERS FOR IRON GIRDERS, CURRENCY CREEK VIADUCT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
THE TENDERS FOR IRON GIRDERS, CURRENCY CREEK VIADUCT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN AEOCS. Sir — I beg to point eut a matter with reference to the tenders for supplying wrought iron girders on account of the Currency Creek Viaduct, which has the effect of leading the public to believe that my tender was considerably above those from the several engineering 'establishments in Adelaide and else where, when such is really not the case. Had the Government published the prices at which the parties were willing to deliver the girders, it would have been shown that my tender was the lowest by . a considerable amount. Why the tender for girders ' delivered' was not accepted is likely to afford1 a subject for enquiry in the House, when the public may be enlightened, on some little matters that at present look very suspicious. 1 am, Sir, &c., A. GRAHAM, Proprietor Goolwa Ironworks.. November 15, 1866. Mail Contracts.— Cobb & Co. have been the suc cessful tenderers for the conv...
FIXED FACTS IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
FIXED FACTS IN AGRICULTURE. The North Carolina Farmer assumes that the twenty-two paragraphs following may be considered fixed facts in agriculture : — 1. All lauds, on which clover or grasses are grown, must either have lime in them naturally, or it rnnsfc be artincally supplied. It matters but little whether it be supplied in the form of etone lime, oyster-shell lime, or marl. I. All permanent improvement of lands must look to lime as its basis. 3. Lands which have been long in culture will be bentfitted by applications in the form of bone-dust, guano, native phosphate of lime, composts of fish, ashes — or in oyster-shell lime — or marl— if the land needs liming also. 4. No lands can be preserved in a high state of fertility, unless clover and the grasses are cultivated in the course of rotation. 5. Mould is indispensable in every soil, and a healthy supply ean alone be preserved through the cultivation of clover and the grasses, the turning iu of green crops, or by the applicatio...
ADVANTAGEOUS MODE OF GROWING TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
ADVANTAGEOUS MODE OF GROWING TARES. We usually drill with over two bushels of winter tares, half-peck each of winter oats and wheat, which help to keep the tares from becoming laid and rotten below. Our tares this year are growing on a barlev stubble. where much barley .shelled out. When the tares came up, they were crowded by the self sown barley which *' stood,' owing to the mild winter, and it was predicted that the crop of tares would be ruined by the barley ; quite the reverse of all this has happened. We have a fine crop of barley, tares, wheat, and oats, nearly four feet high, immensely thick and upstanding, but rolling heavily in the wind. The barley approaching ripeness, the wheat and oats coming only into ear. The mass is cut, brought home, and passed through the chaff cutter, giving such nutritious food (corn, straw, and green food combined), that although my horses are very hard worked by subsoiling and deep ploughing, they are in full flesh and con dition although they ...
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Mr. Lionel Samson in his Fremantle price-list, dated 27th Octobsr. quotes flour ' to arrive per Emily Smith' at £20 to £21 per ton. He also remarks : — ' The colony has been lately visited with abun dant rains, which are now succeded by fine warm weather, aud in consequence reports from the corn-gromug districts confirm the previously formed expectations of an abundant harvest. Under these circumstances it is not likely that floar will next year maintain the high rates' which have ruled for 10 or 12 months past, more espe cially as tbe extent of wheat land now under cultivation in South Australia is bo much greater than in former years. The Emily Smith brings a parcel of flour from Adelaide ; but as by far the greater portion of it is destined for re-shipment the opinion of those who believe that a considerable fall in price' must take place is likely to prove a fallacious one.
LONDON WOOL REPORT. SEPTEMBER 24. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
LONDON WOOL REPORT. September 24. The continued decline 111 the value of money which has taken place since our last report has im parted considerable spirit to the sa!es. 'J he home trade have bought freely throuehout of all descrip tions, and the exporters, who bid cautiously at first, have since been liberal buyers ; so that, with a few ?withdrawals, which have in most cases been subsequently resold, merchants have met the market treely. Opening prices showed little or no advance for the first few days, but an easier money market bad its effect, and prices have gradually advanced until we quote nearly all descriptions about 1 id. higher, with a very firm market. The sales close on Tuesday, and judging from the present active competition, ' we lock for fuJl rates throughout the year; perhaps for all stapled descrip tions rather higher rates will have to be paid bsforc Christmas. There can be no doubt that manufactures have stocked heavily, rather than be caught in the same manner t...

SCHAMYL, THE CIRCASSIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
SCHAMYL. THE CIRCASSIAN. After his capture in 1S59, Schamyl, the celebrated Circassian chief was sent with his family to Kalcnga. He seems to have expected nothing but harsh treat ment from his conquerors, but the Russian policy was otherwise, and lie has from time to time, it ap pears, been loaded with imperial favors. A spacious house is at his disposal, and an income more than snmcient for his wants. On the occasion ot tue deatb of bis favorite daughter, a courier was sent to Schamyl in the Caucasus with the borly of the de ceased. This seems to have touched the venerable chief, who at once addressed an autograph letter to the Czar, which is given at length in the Russian papers. Schamyl here declares himself to be no less vanquished fay the Emperor's kindness than by his arms, and begs that he and his children may be allowed to take the oath of fidelity. ' I am ready,' he says, ' to pronounce it before the entire people. I invoke, as the witnesses of my loyalty and of the purity...
IMPORTANT GUNNERY EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
IMPORTANT GUNNERY EXPERI MENTS. \Tclcr,rariTi London Correspondent. 1 Some gunnery experiments, conducted st Shoeburyness -witbin the past few days, have led to some startling conclusions, and wiil probably exercise more influence on our naval administration tban any event of the past 10 years. The grand problem ' of guns versus armor-plate?,' has at last been brought to %rhat may be fairly believed its first solution. and by this means the drama of ' Attack and Defence' has been carried to the end of its first act. Up to this period the victory has been, or has been believed by the Admiralty authorities to have been, with the defence, with armor-plates as opposed to shot and shell- It was considered that the Warrior and vessels of that class, covered with solid iron plates of 4^ inches thickness were prae tically invulnerable. The Warrior was deemed a miracle of its class — a perfect naval citadel. Tts armor had been fired at by shot and shell — had been pummelled by hot and cold, ...
ARRIVAL OF THE GREAT EASTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
ARRIVAL OF THE GREAT EASTERN. Early ou the morning of September 19 the Great Eastern came into the Mersey, and proceeded to her moorings amidst the most hearty and expressive demonstrations of welcome and congratulation. She cast anchor at the Sloyne just before 9 o'clock. The people rushed down to both sides of the river, and cheered heartily and continuously as the great ship passed. Jwery description of craft hung out flags, dipped ensigns, manned the yards, fired guns, and in some such way welcomed the successful crew, who answered the cheers with which they were greeted. The Cunard ship Persia fired two guns ; Her Majesty's ship Donegal, the Mercantile Marine Association training ship Conway, the orphan training ship Clarence, and the Akbar, all manned ihe yards. Several steamers with passenger?, and decorated wit?- flags from stem to stern, went out to meet the gigantic vessel, which steamed very slowly and majestically through the smaller craft up to the Sloyne. It has been r...

GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
? uu-~- ? ? GREECE. The impression produced at Athens and in the provinces by the events now taking place in Crcta is immense. Interior conflicts are set aside ; partisans of all shades of opinion are occupied solely with the one idea of national aggrandisement. The people and the Government, however, display great sagacity. The Greeks are thoroughly well aware that they are not at present in a position to make war upon Turkey, and while they do not disguise that their good wishes and sympathies go with the insurgents, they do nothing that might compromise them with their move powerful neighbor. Committees are organised in all the towns, bat only to assist the wounded and emigrants. It is said that ships have succeeded in forcing the blockade, aud in landing munitions and volunteers, but, if true, these facts have been effected with the greatest secrecy.
