DINNER OF THE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

DINNER OF THE SOCIETY. The Dinner took .place in tho large room of SOUTH'S HOTEL. The chair was taken by E. French, Esq., J.P., and though there was not so numerous an attendance as we expected to see, still the tables were tolerably well filled, and there was evinced a spirit for social en joyment, which was only marred, for a brief space, by one unpleasant circum stance-ihat of a slight^altercation be tween the Chairman and the Secretary. This circumstance, was, however, so far unfortunate, that, we believe, it will lead to some change in the office-bearers of the Society. The Dinner was lirst-rate; and evcnr body seemed to enjoy themselves. Al though there was no excess, the wine cir culated very, freely ; and as the evening - wore on, speeches and jokes were fired , oft*, and applause occasionally becamo a little uproarious. Mr. French, as the Chairman, led oft' the after-dinner proceedings, with the usual loyal toasts. "The Queen, Prince of Wales, and the Boyal Family," were re...

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, JUNE 17. Amendment of the Constitution.—ADJOURNED DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, JUNE 17. Amendment of the Constitution. ADJOURNED DEBATE. The business on the paper having been postponed for the consideration of the Order of the Day No. 8, the House re solved into Committee. Along debate ensued, during which honourable members travelled over the wide field of constitutional legislation. Mr. Bagot, in the course of a long speech, said that he had changed his opinion on the subject of the ad valorem duties, and he believed the time was now come when they must have them. The time has also come when the question of free distilla tion must be looked straight in the face. The wine growing interest was growing more and more important every day. He had no hesitation in confessing that he had altered his mind on this subject, and he was sorry now that the ad valorem duties had not been arranged in a different way. This was solely a question between class and class. The hon. member (Mr.! Townsend) had said that the property classes had left the...

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY JULY 4, 1862. ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

Published every Friday morning. " FRIDAY", JULY 4, 1862. ITALY. IT was not without d sap} oinlmeut and dismay that we rose from a lurried per usal of the letters of the ' Times' Corres pondents from Turin, as recorded in the last files of the Evening Mai]. It is im possible that the most sanguine and ardent friends of Italy can disguise from them selves the fact that things 'do not bode well at present for the fair Etruscan land. It was not indeed to he expected that the prosperity inaugurated on the bloody fields of Magenta and Solferina was to continue unclouded and uninterrupted. The alloy that mingles with and mars every mundane blessing must be suffered to neutralize, to some extent, the long deferred enfranchisement of the oppressed nationalities. But unfortunately the drawbacks in this case are of so grave and important a nature as to threaten to ex-1 tinguish altogether the glorious hopes I founded on recent events. Austria still j i holds Venetia, and from the strongholds!1...

UNITED INFLUENCE. [Communicated:] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

UNITED INFLUENCE. [Communicated:] jFou the prosperous and speedy accom | plishment of any great "but individual j scheme, a person's united and untiring j energies are required. In building this j house, in painting this picture, in mas tering this science, by day and by night i the one object must be before the mind; jand not half the powers, but all the ! powers of that mind must be exerted for j success. There must be one grand aim to 'be attained at one time : and all matters ; of less importance must give way thereto, and be merged therein. In youth, for instance, the one great purpose is the storing the intellect with sound learning. In manhood, the one great purpose is the excelling in this or in that chosen occu pation, even to cutting the best coat or making the best shoe. No work should bo undertaken but what is good and right; no calling in life should be entered upon, but what is fair and honourable: no course should be followed, but what is strictly conscientious; but h...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. IMMIGRATION. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. IMMIGRATION. To THE EDITOR. ! Sir,-I did not expect to see any one in a ! thinly populated district like this advocating the stoppage of immigration. I should imagine the reason why your correspondent loves his adopted country so well, is, because lie is mak ing a rapid fortune through the high price of i labour which he obtains here, and I have no j doubt lie has too much sense "to ever'think j of investing his earnings in lands or buildings while the present price of labour can be ob tained. The only reason I can give for the population increasing "without immigration, is that there are a number of men who are al ways ready to migrate to any place where they think to get a living without work-and South Australia is just the place for them. They are able to earn enough in the busy time to keep them in the slack time with their hands in their pockets crying out no work. Your- correspondent perhaps is not aware what amount of impudence the farmers have to put...

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH. { That important event for the Mount Gambier district-our ANNUAL PLOUGH ING MA-TCII--came oft* on Wednesday last. It was held in what ia commonly known as .' Blume's Paddockand being a piece of pure virgin soil-embodying all the Mount Gambier conditions-it was well calculated to test the capabilities, and even the science, of the ploughmen. And certainly some evidence was afforded that there were some good agricultural workmen on the ground. The morning was rather dull, fresh, and blowy; and after the immense quantity of rain we .have had, tjiere was, in the morning, but little confidence in the stability of the atmosphere. Still, even in the forenoon, there was a very fair average attendance; and aa the day advanced, the paddock assumed quife au animated appearance ; and at last the bipeds and the quadrupeds mustered in full force, and gave a life-like look to the scene. The police, too, were there, in full uniform, and added a mili tar...

THE NAVAL DUEL—IRON VERSUS WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 4 July 1862

THE NAVAL DUEL-IRON versus WOOD. The important sea-fight, which has done so much towards revolutionising the system of naval warfare appears to have commenced on Saturday, March the 8th, and was extended over the next day. The attack was initiated by the Mcrrimac and her two sister ships, who, in bold and dashing style, assailed the much more numerous Federal blockading squadron lying off the mouth of James River. The ships of the latter force all carried formid able gun?-Dahlgrens,' columbiads, and other specimens of modern ordnance after American design. On the shore were Federal batteries, also heavily armed, and prepared to assist the .squadron within. a certain range, so that the power of attack, as expressed by modern artil lerymen, was well represented. The appalling havoc eommitted among the crew of the Con gress is thus described by Dr. Shippen, who was on board that vessel during the action: "Having finished with the Cumberland this marine monster came back to us. She lay ...

AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION.— Resumption of the Debate. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 11 July 1862

AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION. Resumption of the Debate. Mr. Grlyde resumed the debate, and remained that in his opinion some evils had arisen under the present system, and that he saw many others looming in the future. The Estimates showed that the revenue of the colony averaged about £4s per head upon the entire population, and as he knew that he and Mr. Reynolds re presented families of some seven or eight persons, they certainly ought to pay more than £3 per annum. But it was beginning to be felt by the working classes that their tobacco and spirits were taxed to extend this relief to Messrs. Reynolds and Waterhoiise, and it was quite pleasant to hear the remarks that were sometimes made on the subjeet. (Laughter.) There was an idea abroad, and a very wholesome idea it was too, -(Laughter.)-that tobacco was 8s. per lb. because Mr. Reynolds repealed the ad valorem duties, and undoubtedly the repeal of those duties was an evil which had arisen bccause the working classes had too g...
