ANOTHER WRECK! [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 31 May 1861

ANOTHER WRECK On.Friday last a rumour was current in this town that the barque Miami," Campbell, master, from Sydney, ^and load ing with wheat at Macdonnell Bay, had been driven on shore during a gale of wind from the S.W. Tae report, unhappily* proved too irue. She . parted her cabid on the. morning of Friday last, between seven and eight o'clock, and struck on the same reef as the " Bandicoot," and not far from the " Adelaide," both of which vessels, it will be remembered, were wrecked a thort time ago at Macdonnell Buy. The ill-faied vessel broke her back shortly after she struck. " We understand the " iVliamt ' is insured to her full value. Doubts are entertained as4o the tackle beinj; good, and, we understand, on investigation will be held, when we have no doubt the true facts 0f the,case will be brought, to light.

MOUNT GAMBIER PLOUGlIfG MATCHES. (To the Editor,of the Border Watch.) Sir-In your last issue appeared a letter, «'Speed the Plough," asking questions and making assertions which, L think, ho cannot substantiate, for he therein asserts that same gentlemen hu»e s«;lf-consiiluted themaelves int» a Committee for a Ploughing Match, and that the subscribers (o the last match have taken no steps in tht-ir appointment. Now, s;r, I for one re|ihdia!e such assertions, for two public meeiings were ca'led, the first by subscribars only, ind 'he second-by adver tisement in the " Harder Watch" and hand* bills, ar.d a Committee were chosen by a much larger meeting than that of last season, and if Speed the Plough had been a subscriber to your paper, 1 think he must have seen the vaiious reports, and the'bilis posted about the town were, in my humble opinion, Qtiough to satisfy any-*- person about self«consiiiution.

General Mews. An extensive and daring, robbery was com' . mitted oivthe preirisesof Mr- Dougald Stalk er^ tailor, Market-square, on Sunday night. Some burglars entered a timberyard adjoining, and haying failed to force open the office of this yard, tbeyiscooped out the wood around the head of the nails in a part of the end of Mr. Stalker's house, where J here had been a door. They then prized off five of the boards that hod closed up this doorway and thus raide an entry into the tailor's shop, from «hicli were removed 20 pieces of clo'.h and 12 articles of dress, amounting to the value of about £90. Almost the whole stock- of the plundered man was removed, and he is thus left penniless. One or two . worthless articles were found outside, and a fe*.v more in the..
