THE Chronicle and Mail. SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1868. THE ATTEMPTED MURDER OF PRINCE ALFRED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE SATURDAY* MARCH 14, 1868. THE ATTEMPTED MURDER OF PRINCE ALFRED. We have received several letters on the subject of the dreadful attempt to assassinate the Duke of Edinburgh, but they are written too much under the evident impulse of uncontrollable indig nation to justify us in publishing them, seeing that they implicate others'besides the assassin. As yet the proof that the murderer is a Fenian is by no means complete. It is true the telegraphic reporters say so, but we all know that in the first heat of excitement very erro neous conclusions are often drawn, which calmer reflection and fuUer°infonoation subsequently correct. Suppose the would-be assassin should turn out to bi a maniac : this idea is surely not quite ridiculous, and in such an event the deed would be shorn of its deepest horror. At all events, [it is our duty to wait until we know the whole truth, before we condemn either national or religious parties. When such fearful outrages occur, of course the first impre...
THE LATE HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE LATE HARVEST. Rarely if ever have the Government agricultural returns been looked for with so much eager anxiety as this year. The well-known failure of the crops and the consequent depression of the farming in terest have made people feverishly anxious! for the returns. We wished to know the very worst as soon as possible. All sorts of reports as to the average yield have been floating about on 'Change and elsewhere. Members of the .Go vernment who were supposed to have access to the most trustworthy informa tion on the subject have in meeting their constituents made ''guesses at truth.' Mr. Boothby; who was respon sible for making up the returns, has been wisely reticent as to. the probabilities of the yield. Until he could speak with certainty, he would not speak at all. We understand that both the Government and Mr. Boothby have been anxious to give the public the information which they had a right to get as early as pos sible. Last year the returns were published at the clo...

SANDERGROVE, March 6. What with red rust, take-all, and cater pillars, the wheat crops have turned out very badly in this neighborhood, in most cases worse than was anticipated, being not only short in quantity but the quality generally very inferior, and making yery indifferent flour.^-rl expect the coming elections will cause a .little excitement, for a time,-]and it is to. be hoped the electors. of the colony will take measures to return men of talent and energy for legislators in the present critical state of the country.
