Revised memorial re Xacal. Court. The following revised . memorial, bearing , nearly 200 signatures, was forwarded on Tuesday last to Mr. Ward, M.F., for presentation to the House of Assembly. i To the Honorable the House of Assembly ' of South Australia in Parlia ment Assembled. THE MEMORIAL OF THE UNDERSIGNED . RESIDENTS OF PETERSBURG AND DISTRICT HUMBLY SHOWETH that tlie statements made by the Special Magistrate in reference to Mr. Ward's motion for the establish ment of a Local Court at Petersburg are grossly inaccu rate in the following particulars. First: That Petersburg has seen its best days, whereas in fact Petersburg is steadily in creasingin size and importance, inasmuch as there is not and has not been for some time an uninhabited house in the town. And notwithstanding the fact that the line to Cockburn has been completed for eight months the population has been and is still increasing, and has | not decreased, as suggested by Mr. Edmunds. !

Chapter III. LANDING IN AUSTRALIA. "And grassy knoll and forest height Are flashing in the rosy light, And all above is azure brght—Australia [?] —MRS. CARLETON. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

Chapter HI. LANDING IN AUSTBALIA. "And grassy knoll and forest height Are flashing in the rosy light, And all above is azure brght-Australia!" -Mks. CAKUBrozr. " Land ahead!" is ever a welcome sound, and after five months of close confinement to a crowded vessel of the old style the passengers heard the an nouncement with unusual delight, and soon crowded the deck to get a first glance at the fair, sunny land. They, had passed into Investigator's Strait without getting a sight of Kangaroo Island, where the first of the pioneere had landed. They "laid to" in St. Yincent Gulf waiting daylight, for their commander, although skilful, did not possess a good chart of the almost unknown southern coast. When the early summer sun lit the eastern sky the rugged outline of the Mount Lofty Range was indistinctly seen, and all sail was made for Holdfast Bay where safe anchorage was found,and the fairly pleasant voyage terminated amid the ringing cheers of both passengers and crew. Two days more ...

Correspondence. LOCAL COURT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

Correspondence. i LOCAL COURT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-In reading in the Advertiser of the 7th inst. a letter signed " Looker On" it struck me that this looking on is what is troubling the Yongala corres pondent to that paper. The same gentleman,if I guess rightly,has spoken before about our mushroom growth and has predicted our early downfall. I think he mentioned this when he promised to provide the first Mayor of Peters burg with a maoe-which promise he has failed to cany out. Since the first stone was laid in Petersburg-7 years ago-Yongala has only erected one building, viz., the Town and Country Bank, which building is now closed. Petersburg . in that time has erected 250 buildings, and while this has gone on Yongala has simply had the privil e ge of looking on-hence their jealousy. Yongala three years since was asking the government to provide them with a local court, but, having failed to get it. like the dog in the manger, they try to stop us obtaining what they failed to get th...

CHAPTER II. ON THE VOYAGE. —"On the ocean of Boundless bine, tossing—ever tossing, Bestless, rolling—ever rolling ocean." [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

CHAPTER II. ON THE VOYAGE. " On the ocean of Boundless bine, tossing-ever tossing, iiestless, rolling-ever rolling ocean." The night on deck was brightand calm .and when midnight arrived scarcely a soul stirred; word had made away for thought and the voyagers seemed to be engrossed with thoughts of the past and conjectures of the hidden future. The young mother had just returned from paying a visit to see that all was well with her unconscious little one in the bunk below, and had just reclaimed her own place - the place pre-eminently hers, by the side of her protector, when silence was again restored and so con tinued for a short time tili John ques tioned his wife with regard to her thoughts. 4t Do you know," said she, " that I seem as if I had been dreaming; the events of the last few weeks seem to me so unreal and I have, in thought, lived my life over again during the past few hours." " Can you remember when you were very young ?" " I think every change in our house hold since ...

INSTITUTE MANAGEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

?» INSTITUTE MANAGEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-On going to the Institute read ing room on Thursday evening I could not gain admission although I am a subscriber. On going to the other room I was surprised to see a dancing party had possession of the whole building. Now Sir, I do object to this treatment of the subscribers-that is the non dancing portion of them. It is not sufficient that the library is the worst in any institute in South Australia-? composed as it principally is of trashy novels; of works of reference there are none, not even a S.A. Directory-but they even shut the Institute against the general public having a chance to read the periodicals, papers, etc., simply because most of the committee are dancing men. Now Sir, I think it is the duly of the committee to try and make the Institute more attractive than the public house is for young men. Hoping they will do this in future, DISGUSTED. P.S.-I was mistaken in stating the library contained no works of reference, as the...

Maniacal Comments. Port Pirie, September 6th. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

Maniacal Comments. BY SKIMMER. Port Pirie, September 6th. TO THS EDITOR. LOCAL COURT.- I was surprised to read in the Parliamentary news of the 24th inst. such a weak and paltry excuse against granting a local court at Petersburg. The remarks of Mr. Edmunds were irorn any one of ordinary sense, much less a judge, most unjust, aud bow he makes the cost to be £102 per annum will certainly be interesting-like your con temporary's (" Terowie Enterprise") calcula*. tions on the loop line costs, etd, there prob ably will be some slight inaccuracies, naturally leaning to his side. Evidently he is fearing more work tacked on to his present easy billet. It seems that if things were allowed by your townspeople to run of their own accord, Petersburg would stand a very poor chance of obtaining its rights. Ton must agitate. Happily it has a good and true friend in Mr. Ward and I hope he will go through the present debates with flying colors. I think the Attorney-General ought not to have asked f...

Wesleyan Church Picnic [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 9 September 1887

We^leyan Cbn^cb Picnic The annual picnic in aid of the funds of the Wesleyan Church was held in Petersburg on Thursday, September 1st, the grounds of Mr. Rohde having been kindly granted for the occasion. The weather during the day was so stormy that refreshments were provided in the church, to which a good number sat down. In the evening a lecture was delivered in the church by the Bev. S. Knight on " John Bull and his Island," the Mayor (Mr. W. Threadgold) occupying the chalr. It is now some time since Max O'Rell's famous work first struck the popular taste in the old country, aud since it appeared several others of a similar nature have been published by the same author, but the attendance on Thursday evening showed that the subject, coupled with the rev. gentle man's well-known abilities as a lecturer, was sufficiently attractive to draw a large and appreciative audience. At the close of the lecture supper was provided, and the total proceeds of the day amounted to about £15.

Tbornfon. An amateur dramatic and musical enter. tainment was given in the Thornton school room on Wednesday evening last. The at. tendance was not so large as was anticipated on account of unfavorable weather, -which prevented the accompanist from being present, thereby putting the various singers under considerable disadvantage. Mrs. Cram sang *'Gipsey's Warning" in a very creditable manner, and Mr. B. Deaslip's comic song was well received. The Rev. Mr. Parkinson gave a very impressive recitation, and the performance was brought to a close with the farce" Barnum's Ball." Miss Albert sustained her part exceedingly well, and Mr. J. Alford as the Negro was much admired. A public ball followed but the lack of attendance greatly marred its success
