THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, November 29. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 December 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent. j Adelaide, November 29. The Central Road Board held their appro priation meeting on Thursday 22nd. The South and South-East figure very largely in the report. One important work urged uoon the Board, by a deputation of country settlers, was a deviation through Peachey's Gully, near the Mountain Hut to the gap beyond Stevenson's Garden, and then on by an easy gradient to the 8th milepost. The Waterfall Gully was suggested by Mr. Johns, but Mr. Ash win said the cost of constructing a road there would be enormous. The Chairman said a better line than that suggested had been discovered. The matter was held over for future consideration. The Port-road of course came under discussion, but whether the Board will really venture on trying the tollbars is doubtful. In the Assembly the only matter in which the Government are making much progress is the Estimates, and really the House goes through them very pleasantly. Mr. Strang ways is not nearly ...

CAPE JERVIS. [From our own Correspondent.] ? Cape Jervis, November 28. The A naigisfa arrived at the Fishery yes terday with a cargo of sundries, a large portion of which was for the Talisker Mine, and consisted of a new crusher, iron, timber, brick?, oils, &c, &c, after discharging which she set sail for Kangaroo Island.

A new lodge was ©peaed on Thursday last at Mr. Wardle's, Silverton Hotel, in connec tion with the M. U.

MILANG. Milan, November 29. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 December 1866

MILANG-. [From our own Correspondent! MHang, November 29. The L. A. S. N. Co.'s steamer Telegraph arrived here from Goolwa on Saturday, under sail. She appears to be exceedingly well adapted for the purpose for which she has been bailt, The boiler and engines arrived on Friday by wagons from Adelaide. The boiler and nart of the engine are already in their places in the boat, and with the number of bands employed, there is no doubt the whole will be completed in ample time. Harvest will be two or three weeks later this season in the neighborhood than usual. The yield and quality will, I think, surpass all former experience. The adjourned meeting of the Bible Society was held last night. The neighborhood was divided into districts, and two collectors ap pointed to each. The Rev. C. D. Watt was appointed Treasurer, and Mr A. Kemp X Secretary. I trust a long career of success ? may attend the Society in its holy mission, I need scarcely state that the intelligence that the South-Eastern...

STEATHALBYN. Strathalbyn, November 28. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 December 1866

STEATHALBYN. ! From onrown Correspondent.] Stratbalbvn, November 28. At the election here on Monday last for one member for the Upper House some 58 electors only recorded their votes, which fact I suppose may be viewed as indicative of the little in terest taken by country constituents in the election of members for the Legislative Council. This ought not to be the case, and the present, in conjunction with former Legis lative elections, proves a fault somewhere, ?which ought to be remedied^. Had such electoral division the power of returning their own member or members for the Upper House then doubtless an interest akin to that which prevails at elections for the House of Assembly would be exhibited. Our Agricultural and Horticultural Society held a preliminary meeting at Lester's Hotel last night to initiate proceedings for the next annual show. Nine members of Committee were present, presided over by Mr. J. Cheriton, Vice- President, who read a letter from Mr. Ward, apologising f...

SPIES IN THE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 December 1866

SPIES IN THE CAMP. The following interesting accounts are from the military correspondent of the Evening Standard : — I am told a very nice young lady was observed wandering about with an evident desire to see everything closely, and, for her sex, with a most courageous curiosity, she looked closely at the guns, large and small, in their various positions. Ko one minded this much, for vnrious fair dames come out from Vienna, and look at the terrible ground where they fear brother or lover may byand b3' have to risk his Jife. But ibis damsel seemed desirous of having a little memento of her visit, for once or twice she took from her pocket a very smalt note-book, and made » hurried sketch in it. An Austrian noncom nisssioner, with an unusual want of gallantry for a man of the Imperial army, became bas-elv su.tpiciou?, and, going up to the Jady, said, ' If you please, I sisould like to sc-o that Hide book of yours.' She blushed scarlet, ami protested that she never was so insulted bef...

This was an action for £30, damages, said to have been sustained by the plaintiff by reason of an assault committed by tbe defendants, Mr. Lowe appeared for the defence. It appeared that the plaintiff, the defendants, and some others, were returning from an Oddfellows' meeting on the 27th October, when a dispute arose between Tolman and McKeiizie respecting tbe repair of a road. High words ensued, the result being the assault complained of. As it appeared from the evidence that plaintiff was to some extent to blame in using offensive expres sions to the McKeozie, and as the assault was only of a trifling nature, the Bench inflicted a fine of £1 on defendant McKtnzie, and dismissed the charge against Hunter, be having endeavored to make peace between the parties.

THE METROPOLIS. j [Written expressly for tbe Southern Argu*.] Adelaide, December 6-~ We bare had more than ordinary excitement in Adelaide during tee last few days. There have been the municipal elections, the East Torrens election (an interest in which undoubtedly extended in the city), the Squatters Relief Demonstration by the Chamber of Commerce, and sundry Parliamentary passages at arms more than commonly attractive. We don't often crowd so many sources of interest into so short space cf time in the very dull commonplace world of Adelaide. I shall commence my story with the proceedings of last Saturday, when the great battle -was fought for the Mayoralty, and sundry smaller contests were decided for minor civic hocors. It waB evident from the rowdyism wbicb had been at work for s?me days previously that beer aad impu dence were to be prominent weapons in the fight, and there is now very little reason to doubt that gross cheating and uncompromising partiality were pressed into th...

CLARENDON. [From our own Correspondent.! Clarendon, December 5. The weather since my last as been cold for the time of the year and hardly fit for hay making, which is now in full operation in this locality. The wheat crop looks but very indifferent, and the yield will be small. The yield of peas will not be so large as was expected, and although the potatoes look well the grub and caterpillar are making fearful ravages among them. The quantity of fruit in the orchard is very small, and of apricots, pears, and lemons there are hardly any at all. There is nothing of any interest moving here. Business is very dull, and the circu lating medium seems to have almost been taken from us. Labor is abundant, and wages about 6s. per day. The Bible Christians have held their Sunday school anniversary with great success, having collected £9 Is. 9d. The number of scholars are 50, with an average attendance of 32.

CAPE JERVIS. I From our own Correspondent.] Cape Jervis, December 5. A very serious accident occurred here to a miner named John Roberts, on Saturday, the 1st instant, while in the act of 'tamping' a hole. It seems that he had put in the full charge of powder, and was ' flooring ' the second layer of ' tamping,'1 when by some means the charge exploded with fearful violence, splitting the rock into a thousand fragments, and scattering them in all directions, envelop?ng the unfortunate man in a perfect shower of projectiles and the flames of the powder. The poor fellow was dread fully burnt and mutilated, although almost miraclously no bones were broken, nor is his eyesight much affected, his injuries consisting of severe cuts and bruises in almost every part of his body. He was carried lo his residence at Silverton with all possible speed, where his wounds and burns were carefully dressed by Dr. Parkins, under whose treatment I am ? happy to say he is on a fair way of recovery. \ The...
