GENERAL COLONIAL NEWS. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Although the Adelaide papers report the proceedings of our Parliament at very great and needless length, they also criticise with great severity. Thus, the "Chronicle" says Legislation appears to have reached a dead stop, and perhaps the best thing that could next happen would be for the Governor to prorogue -Parlia ment, and thus afford Minsters an op portunity of considering what course should be adopted in the present emer gency.- Or, iitill better, His Excellency, might with great advantage to the general interests of the community - dissolve the present House of Assembly,, and thus not only cut the Gordian knot in which legislation is entangled, but at the same time afford the inhabitants of the pro vince an opportunity of expressing an opinion on those great .questions which now agitate .the public mind. Whatever may be.the course. pursued by His Ex cellency, > >ojLe thing is quite certain, namely, that the proceedings of Parlia ment are at present simpl...

GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

GREAT BRITAIN. Lord Palmerston's speech upon Italy has given offence to" the Austrian Gov ernment. Explanations, it is saicl, havo been asked. The review of 20,000 volunteers by Lord Clyde at Brighton, on Easter Mon day, parsed off with brilliant success. TJie programme for the opening of the International Exhibition on 1st of May has been published, and several royal vi sitors arc expected to be present. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has been making a tour in the manufacturing districts, and has addressed crowded meetings at Manchester. It is understood that £10,000,000 of a new Russian 5 per cent, loan will be offered at London and various continen tal cities.

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1862. OUR ENGLISH LIBERTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1862. OUR ENGLISH LIBERTIES. The lecture oil Queen Mary which sug gested our leading article of last week will not have been delivered in vain of it leads all who had the privilege of listening to it to feel truly thankful to Divine Pro vidence for the liberties they enjoy, and thoroughly to appreciate the felicity of living under the maturity of the British Constitution. They would do well to recollect, however, that this inestimable blessing has not 'been the result of the labours of one or two men, or of a fortui tous concourse of circumstances, but the result of a long and chequered historical struggle, during which many attempts were made, and many failures recorded. The tree of England's liberty, like her own sturdy oaks, has grown and har dened during dark and evil days, in some of which it was nearly uprooted and des troyed. That liberty, indeed, in essen tials, has existed from a very early period. The .doctrine so eloquently...

OUR POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

OUB POST OFFICE. REALLY, we ought to have a distinct and separate Post Office on Mount Gambier. We arc rapidly, out-growing the mere temporary expedient of haying the Post office located at a Store. Mr. Crouch had it, and he gave it up; then Miller, Lord and Co.; and now, we understand it is going to be transferred to the store of Messrs. Tidier and Webb. These re peated changes are as inconvenient as they are absurd. 'It would not cost a very large amount of money to build a neat Post-office building; and though the correspondence of the Mount is rapidly increasing, still a Postmaster could man age all our Post-office business, for some time to come. Besides, a neat building, with a verandah, would be a very conve nient place of resort, and be a place where all important notices could be posted up, letter lists exhibited, and inquiries an swered. At present one does not like to trouble a busy storekeeper with inquiries which it would be the business of a re gular Postmaster to answ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. IMPROVEMENT OF OUR ROADS.-If we had a District Council, we could have our roads improved at a very small cost. As for the cost, we would all save it in leather, to say nothing at all of the com fort in walking. All that is required as to carry the surface water down under the lava; and if we do not choose to incur the expense of piping, it might be effected more economically by a good bush drain. Any how, something should be done : for the surface water not only chills us and gives us damp "understandings," but may also swell the doctor's bill, and in variable weather, with rapid transitions ever varying from warm to cold, may sow epidemics broadcast, and intro duce a little coffin into every second or third house where there are children. DEATH' ON THE MOUNT.-A man named John Metcalf died on the 12th inst. in Allen's Boarding-house. He was attended by Dr. Graham : but his com plaint, disease of the heart, baffled medical skill, and he died on Thursday week, afte...

PORT MCDONNELL. (From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

POET MCDONNELL. (From a correspondent.) On Wednesday, June 11th, the Gov ernment schools of this township were examined by the Master, Mr. Morse, assisted by the Eev. Mr. Craig, and the Rev. Mr. Burgess. There were 41 scholars present, who were all neatly at tired, and displayed throughout much eagerness to let tho company know that they had not been idle in their studies. The children were arranged at one end of the school-room-, and the other end was left for the parents and friends who would attend. The examination was in Latin-good-Heading, Arithmetic. Geo graphy, and History. The writing was also inspected, and some drawings exe cuted by two clever young artists. Several songs were sung by the children at intervals. The examination being ended, Mr. Craig briefly requested the thanks of the company to the Master. He stated that he had compared the pre sent with many other examinations which lie had witnessed in this Colony, and in England; and he was pleased to observe how" favo...

PBICE OF. MEAT IN SOUTH AUSTRA LIA.-Should it bo found, on examina tion, that the Hon. Treasurer's assertions are as inaccurate in other respects as those contained in the following extract from his speech, great caution will have fco be used in taking them as an authority. He thought the price of meat in the but ehers' shops was very much higher than it ought to be. The cheapest way was to buy your own sheep, and cut it up; and a few people could join together in that kind of purchase, by which means they could procure meat on very reasonable terms." Having a good opportunity of testing the above, I have taken the trou ble to do so. The following has been the result:-The price of sheep at the Adel aide'market has been for some time past, according to your Market Eeport, from 10s. to 14s. each; the average would be 12s. The average weight is, as near as possible, 52 lbs. each sheep, or a fraction under 3d. per lb. The retail price in Adelaide at present is 4<d. for legs a...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. IMMIGRATION AND THE LABOUR QUESTION. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. IMMIGRATION AND THE LABOUR QUESTION. [TO THE EDITOE.] Sir-Permit me to offer a few remarks on the above questions in answer to the letters " Progress" and '. A* Farmer," which appeared in your issue of.the 23rd May. It is true that the Immigration Question has entered the minds of most thinking men. When the Gov ernment decided on resuming immigration at the public expense, I was led to examine into the matter by carefully studying those elabo rate statistics of the Government prepared by Mr. J. Boothbv, being Parliamentary paper No. 1861, and the Census of 1861, and I have come to the conclusion that immigration at the public expense is a waste of public money, unjust to large portions of colonists. The South Australian population was in 1844-February 26 ... 17,366 1846-February 26 ... 23,890 1851-February 1 ... 63,700 We spent on Immigration ....£1,071,895 16 8 This tremendous sum was spent in those 16 years named, on Immigration, and with what result?

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

VICTORIA. ! In Victoria they say that they are to have a new feature in Colonial literature Our hitherto uninterestiug " Government Gazette" is to be transformed into a Vic torian " Moniteur," and henceforth it is to be the sole medium of conveying Govern ment notices to the public. NQ other paper is to be a recipient of Government j advertisements. All kinds of Government announcements, inclusive of land sales/ Treasury notices, and advertisements in viting tenders are in future to begin and end with that lively periodical, the Gov ernment Gazette. This state of things is the result of tha difference between the Press and the Parliament, which...now seems really to have degenerated Mto a petty personal squabble. The Govern ment placed the sum of £4000 on. the Estimates for the payment of Government advertisements, then on the vote coming ou, they voluntarily reduced it to £2000. A motion was then carried by the House that each of the Melbourne papeis should receive an equal share o...

PRE-PAYMENT OF TOWN LETTERS. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 20 June 1862

PRE-PAYMENT OF TOWN LETTERS. [TO THE EDITOR Sir,-Will you kindly inform me through the medium of your valuable journal, whether or not, it is absolutely necessary that letters for local delivery should be prepaid,-as I sent half-a-dozen such letters over to the Post Office the other day, and was greatly annoyed on their being returned to me, with intimation that they could not be posted without pre payment. Now, Sir, to my certain knowledge, letters for local delivery have been passed through the Post Office for other parties, without charge to sender or receiver. I am, sir, yours obdtly., " SEMPER EADEM." [We believe the rule is, that all letters, either for town or country, should'be pre paid.- Eo.]
