PET PARSONS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

PET PARSONS. | From the London Jievinr.] The candidate for the ecclesiastical honors enjoys peculiar advantages in his search for popularity, and for sufficiently obvious reasons, popularity is no despicable stepping-stone to success. . . . Provided only that his ap pearance is agreeable, and his manners decent, lie was at once tbe entree of all tbe best society in the vineyard in which he is a laborer. Smiles and slippers await him on every side. A curate may rush in where im pious laymen must fear to tread. And if he can but combine with his spiritual charms that of a moderate competence, happy, indeed, among men is he. Mothers will be benignant, and daughters agreeable. The young clergy man who, in company with others, is a candi date for a young lady's affections, is a terrible rival ? It must be understood that we are not speaking of the country parson wbose lot is cast in the midst of un spiritual farmers and plotighboys. No, we will suppose some fairer field for tbe labors of...

THE SCRUB LANDS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

THE SCRUB LANDS ACT. Tue adoption of a new policy for dealing with a portion of tbe waste lands of the Crown for agricultural purposes will be one of the most prominent features of the present session. Hitherto although regulations without end have been made and unmade for pastoral or mineral purposes, the terms upon which alone agriculturists could obtain land for agricul tural occupation have remained unaltered. But good as our old land system is, it has necessarily heen found inapplicable to some portions of a colony embracing such a vast area and such thoroughly opposite descriptions of soil as South Australia does. There are large tracts of what passes for land even in the vicinities of large centres of agricultural settlement that under that system would remain for centuries as useless and unpro ductive sn they are now. If they are ever to be utilised the terms upon which they maj' be obtained must be made practicable, and this is just what the Scrub Lands Act purposes to do. ...

PROBABLE FATE OF LEICHHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

PROBABLE FATE OF LEICHHARDT. From Mr Hunt's journal of an exploration to the Hampton Plains we gather little en couragement to the settlement of our eastern interior. He has found vast tracts of good country, but no water. The following impor tant information as to the death or murder of a party of white men, was obtained from some natives by Mr F. Roe, second in command, through a native of the party acquainted with their dialect, and has led to the supposition that it throws light on the fate of poor Leich hardt and his party : — Did you see the white men ? — No. How did you learn this ? — Through a native named Yengowarra. who had learnt through seven other tribes all particulars. What did Yengowarra tell you ? — He told me that other natives, that have seen the white men, told him that two white men and a native had died at a place named Gindie, being thirteen days' journey from this, as before mentioned. From what cause do the natives think they died ? — Yengowarra told me that...

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, December 27. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [Written expressly for the Southern Argus.] Adelaide, December 27. I have scarcelyanylbing to report this week of suffi cient interest to be worth occupying your space. The Christ mas holidays have been kept very much as the Christinas holidays in Adelaide usually axe, aud there is absolutely no other news. As I predicted would be the' case, Parliament was adjonrned and not prorogued for Christmas. In spite of hot weather, holidays, the races, the festive season, and Mr Tiniine's letter some further atten tion is to be given to tue Business or legislation before tbe session closes ; and — more rema rkable than all these— in spite of the weakness of the Opposition, the consequent strength of the Ministry, aud the Appropriation Act having passed the Assem bly ! There may be some doubt of what might have been the result if the Legislative Council had consented to be crammed with Bills as fattening pullets are with boluses of meal ; but for once ihe: Upper House bas asse...

ATTEMPTED ROBBERY OF THE BOURKE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

ATTEMPTED ROBBERY OF THE BOURKE MAIL. A Dubbo Dispatch ' Extraordinary' gives particulars of the sticking up lately of the mail from Bourke and Lower Macquarie. The attack, it appears, took place at Kar ramine, some 25 miles from Dubbo, and is thus narrated : — On Saturday last Dubho was thrown into a high state of excitement by the receipt of intelligence inai tne mau-coacn irom iJourue to Dubbo had been stuck up by bushrangers, and one of the passengers shot. It was at first hoped that the facts were exaggerated ; but, unfortunately, subsequent information proved them to be only too true ; for although the bags were left untouched, Mr J. G. Grenfell was mortally wounded. The up-mail carried two passengers — Mr Commissioner Grerifell (who was removing from the Albert to the New England District) and a Mr Cantrill, from Conglogan. About half-past G on Friday evening, as the coach was about two miles from Mr Christie's station, Narramine, two armed men, mounted on spirited bay horses...

MILANG. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

MILANG. There are probably few places until late'y so com paratively little known, and which present greater attractions for the tourist and pleasure seeker, than the beautifully situated township of Milan g, and the country from Point Start to Langhorne's Creek, skirting the western margin of Lake Alexandrina. During late years this portion of the province has made marked advancement in social and material progress, ana aituough but of comparatively recent settlement, it will bear favorable comparison with many districts of older history. Much of this pro gress is fairly to be attributed to the enterprising energy of a few early settlers, who exercised a very important influence in tbe subsequent events of the district, and the importance it has now assumed. During a recent visit, combining business and pleasure, wo were surprised to find the trade of Milang with the Upper River so very much in excess of what we expected to find. The shipping husiness is carried on with nroch appar...

NEW SOUTH WALES. Sydney, December 20. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866

NEW SOUTH WALES. Svdnev, December 20. About midnight the clipper ship John Duthie was discovered to be on fire in the lower hold forward. The men of war crews strenuously endeavored to suppress it, but failed, and the vessel was towed into Moss man's Bay, and sunk quickly when she was scuttled. She had a very valuable cargo, partly insured in London and in all our local offices. The local insurances amount to over .£30,000. The Melbourne cricketers have arrived, and were warmly received. A close match is anticipated. Efforts are being made to rise the John Duthie, and are likely to prove successful. The barque Nautilus has been wrecked off the Nobbys. Crew saved by a lifeboat. A public meeting has been held to raise a testimonial fund for the late Commissioner Grenfell's family. The Governor presided and about £500 was subscribed.

PORT ELLIOT INSTITUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOCTHESH AEQCS. Sir — The meeting for the purpose of establishing an Institute in Port Elliot, which was bo carefully heralded iu your columns, came off duly on the 27th. There were present myself and another person, though whether the latter came on purpose or by accident I am not quite sure. The only motion that was brought forward was earned unanimously. It Was — 'That in the opinion of this meeting there is no necessity for an Institute in this neighborhood ; that this meeting has done its duty to society in making the attempt to ascertain society's wishes on the point ; and that this meeting may consider itself off duty for five years or so.' In deference to this resolution, I shall not origi nate any further movement of the kind within that limit. Times may mend — they have been worse. I was informed before I left England by a gentleman who once employed a large body of men in this j-' colony, that be, desiring to do his duty by them...
