To the Editor of the Burnt Record. Sib— Feeling as interest in South Australia in general, and the interest of the Burnt in particular, I was glad to aee in the South Australia Chronicle that steps hav - been taken to test me iiurra .District by boring for a supply of water for the township of S-iorinea. While residing in the district I gare this matter a considerable amount of study, and I feel somewhat sanguine of the ultimate success of your undertaking. But regard should be had to the epot fixed on for first borings, as it u possible to have eevsral holes to a considerable depth without finding any water of consequence, but at the same time being in close proximity to an abundant supply. Upward of five yere experience as Manager oftheBurra Burra Mine has convinced me that the surrounding country (more especially tbe eastern aide of the mine workings) is fu of water, for at shallow level, iollr LOO0 gallons per minute was constantly coming from the east eide, and to the north of ...

During the past ten .years the I land sold has reached the immense total I of 3,916,412 and we can now boast of having under cultivation no less than 2,011,320 acres. That this result should have been obtained by a small popula tion if only just over 200,000 souls is indeed a proof of the energy and perse verance of South Australian colonists' and proved by the confidence that we manifest in our own resources and ability to...

Electoral. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 July 1879

Electoral. Electoral matters will appropriately occupy a very considerable proportion of the attention of our Legislators during the present session. 'A Bill re lating to the registration ot electors and some othei matters of proceedure has already passed the Assembly and though it is understood that some very necessary amendments suggested by the Returning-Officer will be inserted in the Council yet it is a useful measure in many respects. So complete are all the arrangements for registering votes that it will indeed be culpable if any who are qualified ^are disfranchised. The Bill even provides (as we consider above what was needed) that not only shall forms for registration be left at every house when the new roll is being prepared but also that they shall be collected again. The onus of the pre paration and accuracy of the rolls is thrown into the Returning-Officers. In answer to Mr. Rounsevell the Government have also stated their in tention to bring in a Bill to re-arrange the...
