COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 1 August 1862

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. At Adelaide the value of wheat has been latterly rising; and it has been af fected even more than flour, and the de mand for it was so great that for some time the price rose 3d. per bushel daily, until it reached 5s. I0£d per bushel. This was a state of things which could not last very long, and accordingly, when all the export orders on hand had been executed, the price receded again, and it has since been sold at 5s. 3d. per bushel; but, if fresh orders were to come, it would soon rally again, for the quantity offering for sale is very limited. Flour.-In consequence of the demand noted above, the price of flour advanced to £13 10a for silk dressed, and £12 IOs. to £13 for wire'dressed, at which rates' large sales were made. But although j there have been no sales since, yet we have no doubt it could be purchased rather under these rates. | At Melbourne flour is unaltered, and, although duller, quotations are not chang...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

GENiftAL NEWS. The following are. additional details, mainly of colonial news, for which we had! not space last week; together yith lifter particulars gathered from . . various sources: THE CONFERENCE ON THE AUSTRA LIAN TARIFF.-The Government have carried their motion for sending delegates to Melbourne on the tariff question, and have carried it by a great majority. Mr. Townsend moved an amendment to the effect that no delegates should be sent until after the Government had submitted to the House a scheme of revised taxa tion on the basis of free distillation. The House did not, however, appear inclined to favor this proposition, and the hon. member met with little support. After the resolution was carried a discussion arose as to who should go. It was taken for granted that the Treasurer must be one, and Mr. G-lyde and Mr. Finniss were both named for the other. At last a bal lot was taken, which resulted in Mr. Glyde being almost unanimously selected. It is not yet decided who will...

THE EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

THE EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN NEWS. We devoted a considerable portion of our available apdf e in the last two num bers of the BOBDEB WATCH, to a resume' of the important news brought by the last mail. But the word "important"; very inadequately expresses the signifi cance and the variety of the details. These are absolutely thrilling. In England two appalling cases of the mur. der of entire families Q$ children by their parents, both in London and in Man chester, make the flesh of the reader creep, and compel him to admit that all the glories of the Great Exhibition " are dimmed by the evidence of our im perfect civilization. Natural calamities add to the horrors of the tragedies of real life which have been perpetrated in . England: while Ireland, ^which, for a tine, has been peaceful without being pacified, has again broken out into those appalling agrarian outrages which tell ,}iow. deep-seated are the evils which have grown up in its social state, under cen turies of mis-government,...

DISTEICT COUNCILS. MOUKT Gabbier is without a District Council, but it has very bad roads, if roads they can be called! Yet 110 other district in South Australia has supplied such a largo amount of money to the general revenue of the colony. Our con temporary, the " Chronicle" remarks, that it is now eight years and a half since the practice commenced of voting sums in aid of District Councils and Corpora tion rates. The total amount thus voted is £197,181, as follows: Year. 1854 1855 ... 1856 1857 * 1858 1859 (to June 30) 1859-60 1860-1 1861-2 Amount Voted. ...£26,104 5 7 ... 18-067 8 4 ... 26,653 1 10 ... 28,143 15 1 ... 25,167 3 6 ... 10,897 3 C ... 23,006 14 7 ... 20,714 7 8 ... 21,430 6 0 Total ...£197,184 6 0 The above has been divided amongst 47 District Councils and 6 Corporations.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Tuesday, July 20. After some pl'oliminary business, the Hon S. Davenport moved " That he have leave to bring in "A Bill intituled An Act for the Incorporation of the United Church of England and Ireland in the Dioccse of Adelaide. The hon. member remarked that a great deal of interest was excited on the subject, and he be lieved the House would not refuse to give him leave to bring, in the Bill; it was,, indeed, a part of their political duty to their constituents and to the colony at large ; and though they were not, in the Council as religious individuals in any special form, in those enlightened days they were all interested in any measure which tended to preserve good peace and good order in any Christian community, be it large or be it small. * After considerable discussion the Bill ' * .

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN B» A BEIAfflEKT. THE proceedings in our South Australian Parliament are undoubtedly colonially important; and every colonial news paper ought to give a fair abstract of the debates. But unfortunately- honourable members have an amazing power of volu bility, and the Parliamentary reporters for the Adelaide Press have but small capacity of discrimination. Consequent ly, everything is set down, in the most formal and pedantic manner; and the only test of the merits of a Parliamentary report seems to be that of its length. The result is, that tlie debates and pro ceedings are scarcely ever read at all, un less when a " scene " has taken place, whilst each local district cares mainly for such portions of the reported de bates as may directly or indirectly affect their immediate interests. Influenced by such considerations, we have not been very particular about con verting a portion of the BORDER "WATCH into a miniature colonial "Hansard." We I have, of course, furni...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE WINTER AND THE "WEATHEB. -The general opinion on Mount Gam bier is, that thiB has b£en the severest and the wettest winter we have had for years. Our contemporary, the " Chronicle/' says that a similar opinion prevails throughout the colony. It says that we find many people are of opinion that the present has been an unusually wet season, but the fact is the rainfall in the first six months of this year was nothing like BO much as during the first six months of last year. For the six months ending Juno 80, 1862, the total rainfall in Adelaide was about 9| inches, against llf inches for the first six months of 1861. In the Mount Gambier district the quantity that fell in the first six months of 1861 amounted to upwards of 27 j inches, whereas in the last six months it I was only about 12£ inches.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. SPIDER SILK. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. SPIDER SILK. [TO THE EDITOII.] Sir,-I take pleasure in gathering the ! gum bark spiders, and I collected 21 of the largest of the black velvet kind, and I lined a little box about a foot wide with glazed calico. . I put the spiders all ofj one colour, expecting my-, epinnera to work.arid lire in harmony, and covered the box with black crape. Next morning they began to work over the whole of the box, and I fastened fine cord of a white silk to each end of the box, fastened to the crape. In a fortnight the silk web was ready. It was beautiful white silk of the finest. I took it away. I found it was similar to the flying cob webs which are common on damp evenings. During this time they had no food or bark, expecting them to form another web. On my visit to the box I found £L battle took place. There was nothing to be seen but bodies and legs strewed over the bottom of the box. Four remained /ilive. I gave them the title of princes! JSflCh pr.e took his place in...

"W"ater and mud are the component parts of this neighbourhood, and serious inconvenience has been experienced in carrying the mails, from the state of the roads and creeks. The township* isgetting a little more lively, and it is hoped that the commence, ment of shearing in the up districts will cause a stir in business. The Bev. Mr. Dixon has left, and we are now without either Presbyterian or Episcopalian minister in the township, a fact much to be regretted, considering the excellent glebe that is attached to the appointment. ^ fl am happy to say that Mr. G.

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

AGRICULTURE. In our last issue we (Economist) were ena bled to publish a report by Dr. Mueller, of a visit to the estate of that gentleman to investi gate the cause of the death of a number of sheep, which had occasioned a good deal of alarm among the sheep farmers 1x1 the neigh bourhood. It was suspected that some poison ous grass, new to the locality, had by some TrC£mi? ^een introduced to the district. Dr. Mueller's services, as Government botanist, were accordingly called into requisition to ascertain if the suspicion had any foundation in fact. His report offers a valuable hint to stock-owners in reference to the precautions tnat should be observed when removing stock from a poor pasture to a rich one. Being con ducted to the paddock where the mortality had occurred, he did not succeed in finding any herb which could be considered in itself dele terious or poisonous. On inquiring into the circumstances, however, he found that the nock in which the deaths Had occurred had been b...

"HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE." "EVIL TO HIM THAT EVIL THINKS." [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862

«. HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE." EVIL TO HIM THAT EVIL THIITK8. "Honi soit qui mal ypense"-such is the motto of the Order of the Garter. " Evil to him who evil thinks." A lady at a ball dropped her garter: the Prince of Wales, afterwards Edward III, picked it up, and presented it to her, with the gallant remark, in Norman French " Honi soit qui mal y pense "-evil to him that evil thinks. Such was the origin of the Order of the Garter. But " evil to him that evil thinks " is ITOT the motto of Mount Gambier. It is rather speak evil of the good, tell lies upon strangers, whisper character away -invent the foulest calumny. " Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for there- j by some have entertained angels un awares." So saith the writer of the Epis tle to the Hebrews. Angels visited Lot in Sodom ; and the Tile inhabitants of that doomed city surrounded the house, demanding that they should be turned out, in order that they might be shame ' fully abused.
