INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 December 1866

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. Discovert of Coal. — The Ballarat Star is in formed by its Stockyard Hill correspondent lhat coal has been found in his district, though of course it is impossible to state whether it can be raised in paying { quantities. The coal is of a bright black color, and j burns very much like Scotch gas coal. j Tite Harvest. — In many localities there is con- i siderable anxiety as to the crops, while io others the fullest confidence is still maintained. Indeed, different accounts from the same districts vary so much tuat- Jt is drmcult to ascertain how lar tee ravages of blight and rust have yet extended, or vshat there is reason to fear. That there is some little rust in the wheat seems to be established, but certainly not to snch an extent as to give just cause of alarm. Certain spots in the vicinity of Geelong have for weeks past been regarded as very badly rusted, but investigation showed previous accounts to have been greatly exaggerated. ' Nothing has ye...

PORT ELLIOT INSTITUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 December 1866

PORT ELLIOT INSTITUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOCTHERN AEGCS. Sir — Permit me to call attention to an advettise ment in another column, calling a meeting fur the purpose of establishing an Institute. £o man v people have expressed to me their regret that they cannot get access to a library, that I have determined to see how many will fairly Cime forward and urite to support one. All those who are not present must remember that they practically deny that they desire to become members. 1 propose to place the whole matter in the hands of the meeting:, and to do mv utmost to exclude sectarian or parly feelings. There are many young men who will onfy have themselves tojjlame if they lose this opportunity of beginning a qood work. Many of the elder people among us, who would generally take au active part iu the business of public meetings, do not feel that necessity for an institute, perhaps, which they woul 1 have years ago ; but this should not deter those of the rising generation who des...

THE OUTLET OF THE RIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 December 1866

THE OUTLET OF THE RIVERS. We must return to ibis eulject once more, although for the prescut Mr. Coglin's new born aeal for the Kapunda Tramway scheme has been put to sleep as pleasantly as clever nurses sometimes overcome the noisy ten dencies of wilful and refractory children. In fact the honorable member for the Light has been got rid of ivithout the display of any of those hostile tactics which, when brought to bear upon hedgehogs, induce those interesting animals to roll themselves up so resolutely in their prickles. Had an opposite course been adopted there is no saying how troublesome the Coglinian prickles would have become, or with what u unparalleled rapidity ' vivid and emphatic denunciations would have been hurled at the opponents of the scheme. The whole of th.e proceedings on the occasion we ! refi'-r to, aptly illustrated the wisdom with which mercy may temper justice, and no doubt — to borrow another of Mr Coglin's expres- I sive phrases — he will be able to ' tolera...

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, December 13. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 December 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [Written expressly for the Southern Argut ] Adelaide, December 13. Adelaide is to some extent still *' suffering a recovery' from tbe unwonted excitement of tbe recent municipal elections. Our pro fessional agitators bave talked themselves hoarse ; aud at the Governor's salary meeting the other night only a very vapid and spurious Tdnd of indignation was emitted. In our commercial circles tne stereotypea in activity *' pending the arrival of the mail' prevails, and it seems to suit a certain class of men who haunt the cool precincts of the Exchange with a lively sense of favors to come. Then, in our parliamentary world all interest is lost to the outsiders in the apparent impossibility of effecting a change of Ministry before tbe session closes. Even Mr Reynolds appears to recognize his helplessness, although ne cannoi suppress ms icuueucy to oe mis chievous. The Chief Secretary has declared that the Government still hope to close the business of the session before C...

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13. MAHER v. BARKER AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 December 1866

Thursday, Decemeeb 13. Mahek v. Baeker and Others. This was an action brought by plaintiff against the defendants, who are proprietors of the Goolwa Mill, for loss sustained by him through defendants not purchasing his wheat which he hsd stored with them. Mr Lowe appeared for the plaintiff, aud Mr liind icarsh for defendant. It appeared that the plaintiff claimed that the wheat should be purchased at 3d. less than the Ade laide price, as determined by the newspapers, while the -Jeiendants insisted that the price in Adelaide should be determined by a telegram from some persoa mutually agreed upon. The Bench considered that a knowledge of the terms under which the Messrs Barker stored wheat (although they were posted up at the mill) were not sufficiently brought to the knowledge of the plaintiff, and they therefore considered the contract to be founded oa the conversation that took place, and ascertained the price by -the plaintiffs reference, deducing one penuy, aud gave judgmest for...
