The captain of the Auburn team requested that the stumps should be drawn, which was imme diately done by Mr. Bowley, the Clare umpir...

The proposed candidates for the representa tion of Encounter Bay were entertained at a complimentary supper at Varcoe's Hotel^ Goolwa, on Thursday night, March 12.

COMMERCIAL FEDERiTIGlff. .We publish: a -very important telegram from our ^Melbourne correspondent, which deserves ymote than '-a passing; notice. For some, time back, the lovers of good native wines in Melbourne, have been anxious that the three shilling'duty should be removed, so that the excellent v wines which we are now producing might be placed in the market there. at. a mode-* : rate price. It is a curious fact, that the f Melbourne people are more anxious about '?\ihis matter than ~we are here.- It has r*.iieen discussed In Various ways. Dr.. Bleasdale and the gentlemen of the Con noisseur's Club, have loudly called for the removal of the vexatious duty ;'-memb4rs' of the Government -have admitted that the request \ was a reasonable one ; but -with all: this j it must be confessed .that: the people of* South Australia, who have the greatest interest of all In the settlement of the question have, been rather ^apathetic about it.- Two or . three vignerons, and notably Mr. D.

PUBLICANS AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
PUBLICANS ASTD POLITICS. Our morning contemporary recently had an article entitled 'Burlesquing Public Opinion,' the writer taking as his text the action of our old acquaintance Michael Kenny, who has for some time past made himself very active in getting up 'public meetings at Freeling. It is true Michael keeps a public-house, and that the meetings and drinkings take place at !»??« house; it is also just possible that the meetings are.not always as extensive as the drinkings, and ill-natured people may insinuate that Host Kenny does not en force punctuality in ' taking the chair.' All this is admitted; but on behalf of Kenny we feel bound to say that he was a politician before he was a publican, and just as active then as now. 'When resi dent at Sheaoak Log he kept a 'vivid and rigorous eye' on things in general, and often favored the lieges with a ' colonial synopsis,' under the pseu donym of 'Sheaoak.' We feel bound to say^ihus much for an old friend, who commenced in politics lo...
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE NORTHERK TERRITORY. i. There is np.dpubt that public patience is becoming rapidly exhausted with regard to the Northern Territory business. Nearly every candidate is questioned as to his views upon the subject, and the alleged procrastination of the Govern ment is very freely canvassed. Now that Captain Cadell has returned, and given in his report, pebple want to know why the Government do not at once either act upon that report or state their intention of not doing so/ The time within which: the surveys must be made-^-if made at all— is quickly drawing to a close, and there is, on all sides, a demand for a settle ment of this question one way or the other. Still— provoking as the hesitancy of the Government is, it is not exactly ' procrastination' on their part. It may be want of confidence, or want of courage, or want of money, or want of union in the Cabinet, but whatever may be the real cause of loss of time, it is not that the Government are postponing the con sideration of...
THE MAIL SERVICE—NEW ZEALAND VIEWS OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE MAIL SERVICE— NEW ZEA LAND VIEWS OF VICTORIA. It would seem that there are always two sides to every question, even that of the Postal Contracts about which so much has been said and written. The Otago Daily News of 22nd ultimo devotes a leader in reply to the strictures of the Argus on the Panama service. The writer alleges an intent, from interested motives on the part of the Argus sup porters, to prejudice the Panama service. and points out that the absurdity and mistake of the thing is, that Victoria is permitted the full enjoyment not only of abusing the service, but also of using it. He admits that 'the Panama service has not answered all .the expectations which were conceived of it for postal purposes,' for the precise reason that ' because of the Panama service the Directors of the P. & 0. Company took good care to im prove the Suez service ;' but he urges further that ' if the Panama service were withdrawn the chances are that the Suez service would relapse into...
THE COMING ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE COMING ELECTIONS. We observe— and with much satisfacr tion — that many of the constituencies are catechising candidates upon their inten tions with reference to the insolvency laws of this province, and certainly either the object contemplated by those laws is a very bad one, or — if good — there never were laws worse calculated to effect a good obiect.- On all sides it is felt, and declared, that a sweeping reform in this department of the public service is re quired. Not, however, that our Parlia ments have been chargeable' with indiffer ence on the'matter. Many attempts have been made to deal with the subject, but its difficulties and intricacies have, so far, proved too many for colonial statesman ship. Neither have the enemies of con stitutional government much ground in this fact for exultation. The same failure has ^characterised every attempt of the Imperial Parliament, where a new Insolvency Bill, or at least a debate 'with reference to the subject, is looked for every ...

THE LONDON POOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE LONDON POOR. In the present state of affairs in South Australia, in the present condition of our . revenue and our commerce, it requires ^ considerable buoyancy of spirits to regard ^ ' things as they are ' complacently, or to . : look hopefully on our future prospects. With the drought fresh in our memories, . with the knowledge that our laboring classes are to a disproportionately large extent looking to the Government instead of to the soil and private enterprise _ipr employment ; with the red rust spreading want, ruin, and insolvency among our a,griculturists, it would be very difficult to join in those glowing descriptions of our adopted land in which old colonists used to delight. Still, there is a bright tide to things. Despite all the freaks of she seasons, we have more com, wine, and butter, more sheep and cattle, than we can ourselves consume, and we do not think the time is yet come when, out of our hiiiq we shall cease to dig ' brass. ' It is impossible to deny, even...
