THE FRANKFORT PROTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 17 November 1866
THE FRANKFORT PROTEST. The continental journals publish a lengthy docu ment, consisting of the protest at the Frankfort bourfreoi-ie agair.st their absorption into the Prussian monarchy. They urge that they bare been neither hostile to Prussia nor to the views of M. Bismarck, I and contend that a neutralized spot between the north arid south of Germany is indispensable. Frank fort, changed into a provincial city, will be wholly j unable t-» contribute to the conciliation of existing antipathies. But Frankfort, independent, respected in its autonomy and its integrity, would have for Prussia all the more sympathy and attachment from knowing that it was simply to the respect for right and to the love of justice that it owes the preserva tion of its ancient liberties ; and, even were it un willing, would feel itself irresistibly impelled to become a centre of propagandism in the work of com pleting the national objects. The citizens declare that Frankfort is ready to renounce its indepe...

At the commencement of this century it held with unshaken fidelity to the house of the Guelphs, notwithstanding foreign domination, and this fidelity was rewarded. The dynasty of my an cestors was restored and reunited to the people. As the people persevered then so they will persevere bow also.

The Caops. — The crops in Victoria are generally speaking looking exceedingly well, and a yield much above tbe average is expected. According to the Geelong Advertiser a small white grub has committed great ravages among the oat crops in. the Auakies district, if the ground is lifted up thousands of these casts can be observed. It also attacks Enelish and even the native grasses, although whtn the latter die from such a cause, it is often wrongly attributed to the scorching rays of the sun. The Boeder Ccsro3is. — An instance of the pre judicial operation of the Border Customs is noticed by the Border Post in the following paragraph : — ?''There was no bid on Monday for the property of the Murray Valley Vineyard Company — a fine estate of 640 acres, in cap tal Torkiug order, and producing f...

' I really do not know,' said the clergyman, 'how to refuse you; but if the young man can preach better than I can, my congregation wou!d be dissatisfied with me afterwards; and if he should preach worse, 1 don't think he's fit to preach at all.'* !
POETRY. THE HERITAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866
POETRY. THE HERITAGE. BY JAMES BD.SSELI, LOWEIX. The rich man's son inherits lands, And piles of brick and stone, aud gold, And he inherits soft white hands, Aud tender flesh that fears the cold, Nor dares to wear a garment old ; A heritage, it seems to me, One scare would wish to hold in fee. The rich man's son inherits cares ; The bauk may break, the factory burn, A breath may burst his babble shares, And sufc white Imnd? could hardly earn A living that would servo his turn ; A heritage it seems to me, One scarce wou'd wish to hold in fee. The rich man's son inherits wants, His stomach craves for dainty fare ; With sated heart ha hears the pants Of toiling kinds with brown arms bar*, And wearies in his easy chair ; A heritage it seems to me, One scarce would wish to hold in fee. What doth the poor man's son inherit ? t^tout muscles and a sinewy beart, A hardy frame, a hardier spirit; Kiiig of two hands, he docs his part In every useful to:! and art ; A heritage it seems to me, A k...

KOAD THROUGH MILA.XG. The Bremer District Council have petitioned the House of Assembly in the following terms : — ' The memorial of the District Couucil of Bremer humbly sheweth — ' That the present main line of road to Milang terminates at the entrance of the township, instead of at the legitimate end of the traffic, viz., the jetty. ' That we. the District Council of Bremer. cannnr. with the funds at oar disposal, make and keep in re pair a road that is entirely used by main road traffic through and from the jetty. ' That the very sandy road used at present through the township neutralizes in a very great degree the benefit that the public would otherwise derive from the admirable road to the township. ' That the large and increasing traffic to and from Adelaide and Milang, on account of many of the Murray steamers loading and unloading there, fully justifies your Honorable House in making the road through the said township to the jetty, and also on account of the large amount de...

THE OUTLET OF THE RIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866
THE OUTLET OF THE RIVERS. The extension of iron roads and the improve ment of our means of internal communication is a very necessary policy for the advance ment of this colony. It is, indeed, the only policy by which vast areas of now conipai'a tively unproductive land can be made to con tribute a reasonable proportion to the material wealth of the community. But it is rather a misfortune that we — as a community — are too much in the habit of blowing either too hot or too cold in matters of this kind ; an dvery often wheaabout the hottest degree of temperature is readied a residuum of mischief becomes an unpleasant memento of spasmodic legislation. There is a present danger of the newly-born rage for tramway exieusion inducing some such result as this. An insiduous attempt- — which ought to be a signal for action through out the South — is being made to wheedle Parliament into sanctioning that -wildest of all unnecessary and iniquitous schemes — a tram way from Kapunda to the Nort...
GOOLWA AND PORT VICTOR TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866
GOOLWA AND PORT VICTOR TRAMWAY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE SOUTHEEN ABGCS. Sir — Permit me to make two suggestions with regard to the management of the tramway. The first is that the Government should causa goods and heavy parcels to be delivered wishin a fixed radius from the stations. No one'who does not live in the South, where there are no carters, can imagiue the difficulty we hive in getting a heavy parcel carried even a couple of hundred yards from the station here in Port Elliot. I have had to wait three days, and waste a good deal of time, before I coull get a bag of flour from our shed to my house. I am sure that a horse and light cart would pay their cost, and make the tramway much more of a convenience to both private people and storekeepers than it is at present. The other suggestion is that on fit occasions ex cursion tracks should run at reduced fares. There are always two doubts in people's minds which keep them from reckoning upon the tramway as a means forgetting to any ...
