Tne Premier said the Government bad done what it could against the Chinese, and bad carried a restrictive Bill throngs the Assembly last year, though there were leu grounds for alarm now than there had been. There was no probability ot other large shipments coming in, as in the last week of last year more left than arrived. Those who hed arrived had joined the floating population at the gold and tin mines, and were not an element of danger. It was not desirable, and tbe Government could not grant the Garden Palace pnrely for each a meetiugas tbat proposed.

Roulette was drawn for the Oaks by Mr. Roumsevell in favor of another representative, Rosebud, who got a terrible grueller single handed.

That three-fourth- i of Joe t.eaersl public of Terowie have signed a j rsemoiiU to have the proposed offices on tne railway reserve is simply fal«e, asd that state- j mest, like a good many more, must have emanated from the fertile brain of the indi vidual wbo stated fome time since that sixty two influentisl persons met at the Royal Hotel, and voted sgalutt the buildings beiag erected iu the main ttoeet of tbe old township.

THE CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
THE CENSUS. We have been favored by the Superinten dent of Census with the first instalment of the ceseus returns, which give the population of all the corporations of the colony, csm j.aring it with the population as numbered in 187G. The figures show the advance made by the colony since the inauguration of the Boucaut policy. The residents in corporation limits have increased during the half-decade by more than 21,000, the totals being Tespectivelv C5.029 and 86.797. Strange to say, though complaints of the numerical inequality of the sexes have been so common, the females in the city and towns outnumber the males, there being 44.195 of the former to 42,602 of the latter. When the leturns for tbe whole colony are received the balance will be on the other side, and it may be presumed that the fact of the fair sex being in a majority in the corporations may be accounted for by various causee. Many men whose domicile is in towns are doubtless away searching for worlr, or at work in t...

TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Seeing that your reporter has fallen into a slight mistake in reference to the working of the totalizator in the case of D.O.D., will you allow me to correct it for the satisfaction of the public ? Your report states that the 1 that should have been above the 18 was not visible; but the fact is the machine acted perfectly, and registered the 1, which was as visible as the figures on any other horse. It was the number of the horse— I8— Below the 1 registered that had fallen out of its place; but that in no way whatever affected the machine.— I am, &c, &nbsp; ROBT.
