Iiut. judge my surprise when 1 reached the starting place to find that a 'thing' on wheels, and not much bigger than a wheelbarrow, without sides and without seats, was tbe conveyance provided. There was a 'carriage.' having a comfortable first-class comnartinent. hut that 1 found was for Goolwa, w?iere the superinten dant resides. A seat was extemporized for me bv setting a gin case on end, and the driver was even kind enough to rob a mans^r close at hand of a bundle of hay, and so gave me a cudii -n. The ' thing' had just bsen used for carrying lime, a few samples of which 1 have now on the clothes I wore. Now, if the Government arc no...

CORRESPONDENCE. TENDERS FOR IRON GIRDERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866

CORRESPONDENCE. TENDERS FOR IRON GIRDERS. TO THE EDITOR OF*THB SOCTHERX ABGDS. Sir — Referring to my letter in your last week's issue with reference to tenders for iron girder3, I find I am in error, l;aving been led to believe that my tender for delivery was lower ths.ii the one accepted, and that the successful parties were to receire privileges in carrying out the work contrary to terms of specification, when such is not the case. As the average tendered price for conveyance from Adelaide, with 50 per cent, added for the extra distance from Gawkr Town, would bring- tbo price from £4 to £5 i-er girder above me, it was riot ub reasonable to arrive at the conclusion reported; and having had the error pointed oat I have much plea sure|n taking this opportunity to correct it. 1 am, Sir, &c, A. GRAHAM. Goolwa, November 22, 1866.

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, November 22. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866

THE METROPOLIS. »? | From our own Correspondent, j - Adelaide, November 22. Everything is ripening to the harvest ; the cropB are yellowing, the plains are patting on the brown, withered appearance of an Australian summer, and speculation and discussion are based upon the pr o bable state of things when our crops shall hare been gathered in. There is little doubt that we shall have an immense harvest; for nothing that can happen now is likely to have much effect upon ♦lip. vipld. The intelligence that orders had arrived from England for our wheat occasioned an advance of 6d. per bushel. The rise was by the cornfectors attributed partly to an article in the Segister arguing that wheat might profitably be sent to * England, and patting- forward fancy estimates of price, and the cost of shipping, agency, &c The Advertiser in a long article on Monday last showed that agriculturists would find the Register an unsafe guide, and proved tliat the whole estimate of that ^ journal was...

STEATHALBYtf. [From our own Correspondent.] Strathalbyn, November 21. An entertainment on behalf of the Church of England Harmonium Fund was held this evening at Mr. Cohnan's store, when about 120 persons were present, and many were much disappointed at not being able to attend in consequence of the very wet evening. The music, vocal and instrumental, was conducted by Messrs. Evans, PaltrJdge and Cornelius, with, much taste and ability. During the evening the celebrated trial of Bardell v. Pickwick, was well performed. For the trial there were judge, counsel for plaintiff and defendant, and witnessess on each side, all suit ably attired for the occasion. Theaftairwas well handled and much applauded. The committee have promised to repeat the entertainment at the same place, on Wednesday evening next, when, should the weather be fine, which is. almost sure to be the case, I have no doubt there will be a very large attendance. The harmonium has been purchased and is a nice instrument. ...

During the night of Thursday last, some evil-disposed person or persons, broke open a ease of herrings, which had just been landed, and was lying on the wharf, and took a portion of the contents.

WILL IT PAY TO SHIP WHEAT TO ENGLAND? [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866

WiLL 1? pay to ship wheat to ENGLAND ? [From tbe South Australian Advertiser.] The unusually large quantity of South Aus tralian wheat that will be available for export in 1867 naturally awakens enquiry as to where we shall jfind markets for it. In Victoria the prospects of the harvest are exceedingly good, and the effect of the liberal land system in force in that colony has caused a very large increase in the acreage of wheat. With wore acreage and higher averaare our neighbors will be far less dependent upon foreign supplies ; and, therefore, we must not calculate upon placing a very great deal of our wheat in Melbourne. Nor can we calculate upon having the monopoly of the Melbourne market, even eo far as regards the limited quantity of breadstuff's which may be required by that community. No doubt the abundance* of the Australian harvests, and the lower prices which must consequently rule, will greatly check South American arrivals, but though the Chilian and Califor nian trade ...

HAY AND HAYMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 November 1866

IIAY AND HAYMAKING. fFrom the -2-t€cnslandcr~\ The proper time to cut for bay is jns1 b?fore the sap at the neck of the stalk and nnJer the ear gets dry — to cut it when there is a street jirce in the neck, and tefore the grain in tha ear is dry enough to shake out. In making hay from grass or clover, or where these are mixed, the time to cut is just when lh?. flowers show syjnptoms of falling. At that time they con tain, as do oats in the condition we have described, all their nourishing qualities. These evaporate very rapidly in this climate, leaving the produce dry and wiry ; hence the necessity Df pushing on the work of making up hay a3 rapidly r.s it possibly can be done ; and as has already been stated therein consists the great difficulty of haymaking— a difficulty which it U feared will exist until the mechanical appliances now so well understood in the oiler counirie3 are brought into use. After being cut, the great art ofhaymaking is to keep it moving about untii it is per...
