FUNERAL SERMONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868
FUNERAL SERMONS. On Sunday, in most of the Churches, some reference was made to the lamented death of our late Governor. Some of the places of worship were draped with black ' cloth, and the congregations wore a sombre appearance, many of the members wearing mourning out of respect to the deceased. We afford brief notices of some of the services, so far as they have reached us. It would be simply impossible to publish at length all that was said respecting Sir Dorp inick, but most of the preachers bore testi mony to His Excellency's kindness of heart and able administration of the Government during his residence in South Australia. , Tbdtitt Chcbch;— The Bishop preached iu the morning from Mark xiL,17.

THE GRAVE. A plain vault had been prepared next to Father Lenpioni's, and a space of ground was enclosed with scaffolding poles to prevent a rush upon the grave. Everything connected with the ceremony had been conducted in faultless order till after the head of the pro cession bad reached the tomb, butas the civilians approached they seemed in doubt as to the posi tion they should take, and after a few moments hesitation broke up, and made for the enclosure by various directions, and mixed up with the chief mourners and the clergy, most of the latter, excepting the Catholics, having to fall back to the railings of Father Lencioni's tomb. Although this was an infringement of the order of things as arranged beforehand, there was no rush orcrowding ; everything was quiet and de corous.

When the coffin was taken from the carriage, and laid ove...

THE RED RUST. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 29 February 1868
THE RED RUST. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Allow me space to advocate lime as a preventive to red rust. Lime, it is well known, has strongly absorbent powers, and rich or wet lands have Buffered the most, poor lands or rising ground the least, as witness the Hundreds of Stanley and Kooringa, nearly all undulating ground. The heat naturally arising from lime would have tended to dry the root, and would (especially in such a wet season as last) have given additional strength to the plant, I am, Sir, &&, , esteii^;..;.
