STRATHALBYN. Strathalbyn, December 26. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 December 1866
STRATHALBYN. 1 From our own CorresDondent.l Strathalbvn, December 26. Yustc j day — Christmas Day — was one io be j;rt»g remembered. Terrible hot 'winds, as fii tc« as the blast from a Welch furnace, blew w.. i undiminished violence during the whole of *he day, while cloud after cloud ofjdust and fine sand filled every room in our dwellings, pou ing in through every available crevice h.nA crituny, and causing much distress of mind amongr tidv housewives. Those unfortu nate individuals whose business or pleasure (?) called them out of doors were in a very few minutes completely begrimed with dust, and scarcely recognizable by their most intimate acquaintance. To enjoy one's Christmas under these trials was rather difficult ; still, in cnita nf all. neonle tried to be ' iollv under the circumstances.' The excursion trip of the Telegraph from Rlihmg to-Meningie seemed to engross much attention,- and certainly appeared to present ^gmote attraction than any amusement on terra *^5£m# coul...

POETRY. THE MAN WHO IS KIND TO ANOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867
P O K T R Y. ! THE MAN WHO IS KIND TO ANOTHER. This world is so hard and so stonev, That if a man is to get through,' lie need have the courage of Nelson, And plenty of Job's patience too. But a man who is kind to another And cheerfully helps him aioug. We'll claim &b a man and a brother And here's to his health in a song. This life is as cheerless as winter To those who are cold in the heart, B't the man who is warm in his nature Bide winter for ever depart 1 he ground that he trends on will b'ossom, Till beauties around him shall throng ; «od bless such a man and a brotl'er And here's to Viis health in a song. Ae clouds that in sunshine are open Are silvei'd by light passing through, So men who are generous in spirit Are blessed by the ernnd thing* they do.* There's nothing like helping ano;her,' For getting one's own self along ; Who does this is truly a brother, And here's to his health in a rong. There's something in other men's sorrows That strengthens a man who is tru...

AGRICULTURAL SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867
! , AGRICULTURAL SUGGESTIONS. [From the Border Watch] It may not be amiss at the present time to draw the attention of farmers to the necessity of slightly altering their system of farming ia future. The age of wheat growing must be regarded as on the decline, and that in which the farmer must look out to make the most of his land by a greater variety of crop on the eve of development. Ever since the foun dation of these colonies there has been a race between population and production, and pro duction has tagged behind. Tbe plough could not keep pace with the natural increase of population, aided by a never ceasing flow of population from abroad ; consequently farming prospects, when not interfered with or deranged bv foreign supplies, have been comparatively bright, and prices generally remunerative. But now there can he no doubt the plough is ahead of the wants of the population, and if progression is persevered in by farmers in the i same direction and in tbe same degree much lon...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867
AMERICA. News from New York to November 10, state tbat the elections in Kew Yoik, Massachusetts. Illinois. Wisconsin, Missouri, and New Jersey, resulted in a large Republican msjoiity. Some additional Radicals were chosen for the next Congress, tiius sustaining the action of the Congress against the President. It went the other way in the election of State Officers and Congressmen, in Michigan, Kansas, Missouri, Minesota, and Neva, where the radicals were victo rious. The result of tLe elections gives the Radicals an increased majority. In the next Congress if the Radical leaders are true to their previous professions, they will certainly impeach President Jolmson, aad thus in all likelihood bring on another civil war. The war spirit amongst the Fen'aus in the United States is increasing. They swear if Colonel Lynch and Father McMahon, sentenced to death in Toronto, are hanged they will make a terrible retaliation. Meetings are held to raise men and money. Head Centre Stephens says ...
THE COORONG. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867
THE COORONG. Too moch light has been thrown on the important question of the navigation of the Coorong during the past few months to enable it to be very easily shelved again. It has been slKnvn that in a very little time, and at a comparative small expenditure, water carriage, safe, convenient, and easily practi cable for steamers of light draught, may be obtained for at least 90 miles of the distance between Adelaide and the Soutli-East. 'What we have now to do is to take care that Minis terial apathy does not postpone too long tbe realization of this great advantage. It is only lately that public attention has been directed to the question at all. Very little has been known of the Coorong or of the facilities it would afford for the carriage of mails ana passengers as well as of goods traffic. It bas even been assumed that because it runs parallel with tbe sea the advantages of opening it would be no greater than could be secured by coast navigation. It is true that such an objec...

THE TRIP OF THE WENTWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 5 January 1867
THE TRIP OF THE WENTWORTH. Only a day or two previous to New Years Day i bills were circulated stating tbat the steamer Went- i worth would make an excursion trip to Milang and I back ou that day, and accordingly at ihe hour an- i ?flounced steam was got up, and the vessel proceeded j oa her tr;p wiiii about 250 passengers on bjard, j mostly inhabitants of Goolwa and neighborhood. I The trip turned out a most enjoyable one. The deck ! was covered with an awning, which sheltered the ex- I cursionists from the sultry heat cf the sun, and this combined wiib the movement of the steamer rendered the weather far more bearable than on shore, in fact it was quite pleasant. Refreshments of every des cription were obtainable on board, Mr. J. Varcoe being the caterer, and it is needless to t-ay that every attention was paid to the wants of the excursionists by Mr. and Mrs. Varcoe, their indcfa'igabiHty being well known. The tr'p was evidently enj iyed liy all who availed themselves of it, and ...
