The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, AUGUST 8, 1862. THE MOUNT GAMBIER LITERARY INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 8 August 1862
®lt* IjMto Watdt, TuWislied every Friday morning. FRIDAY, AUGUST 8, 1862. THE MOUNT GAMBIER LITERARY INSTITUTE. Tiie opening Lecture of tho Mount Gambler Literary Institute was delivered in tho National Sehool-house on Tuesday evening last. Up to that evening the weather had been exceedingly unpropi tious; the roads were in their very worst condition; and the elements seemed com bined'to obstruct the first imporfe^F step towards the promotion of useful know ledge amongst the people of Mount Gambier. By an oversight, the lecture had not been properly advertised, and some even of our leading residents were rather startled, on the afternoon of Tues day! on being reminded that the opening lecture was to bo delivered that evening. Nevertheless, there was an excellent attendance; and the plaudits with which the reverend lecturer was greeted evinced? on the part of the auditory, a hearty relish for those " Recreations of Litera ture" which are elevating, expansive, and pure.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 15 August 1862
GENERAL NEWS. TEEE SELECTION AND A MANIA FOR CHOICE LOTS.-The natural result of freo selection at a fixed price is a land buj'ing mania, and we are not ct all surprised at the reports that large land eoinpanies are in the course of formation. The Age reported that Mr. Henry Mil ler was at the head of one company, and Mr. Hugh Glass of another. Mr. Glass has declared by a letter in the newspa pers that the report, as regarded himself, is false. The Age is now a very doubt ful authority on any subject, and the re port in reference to Mr. Miller may be equally false ; but, as we have said, it is almost certain that a land buying mania will arise. It also appears that applica tions are made to Mr. Duffy ^to modify the express provisions of the Act, and to twist its meaning to suit particular ob jects ; and it is certain that the consis tency and honesty of Mr. Duffy and the Ministry will be tested in a hundred dif ferent ways. It will be Been whether the Act is a sham, and whether it is...
THE TIMBER TRADE OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 15 August 1862
-% THE TIMBER TRADE OF VICTORIA. ?>; In. an interesting account of the timber , trade of Victoria, which appeared in the Age, it is stated that there are no less than eight saw mills established in the various gulliea on the northern and sou thern Hopes of Mount Macedon, which afford employment for about 200 men. The weekly supply sent to Melbourne, by rail, averages 75,000 to 80,000 super ficial feet; the weekly imports from Tas mania being about 100,000 feet. In ad dition, about 10,000 posts and rails, with large quantities of firewood, are for warded by the same means. The railway charge per ton of 600 superficial feet is 10s., the cost of freight from Van Die men's Land being £1. As the timber is generally of good quality, it is anticipated that, with proper facilities on the part of the railway authorities, Tasmanian tim ber might be entirely dispensed with. The railway authorities will, uo doubt, discover, ere long, the impolicy of a high tariff of charges on the conveyance...

PENOLA. (From our own Correspondent.) August 13th. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 15 August 1862
PENOLA. our own Correspondent.) August 13th. The weather is still very-had; hut yet the roads are more passable, here than they are on the Victorian side. The passage across the Wannon is again stopped, and the Gl-lenelg at Casterton only to be crossed by swimming. The Victoria Mail Coach did not arrive last night, our new driver Master Johnny being compelled to leave it 'tother side of Quigley's, as it would have been fool hardiness to attempt crossing the Wannon as he certainly would have done had^the thing been possible. The half-yearly meeting of Court Benevolence, A.O.T1,, No. 8811, took place on Saturday last. There was a full attendance of members, and the following officers were elected for the ensuing six months. Bro. Laing, C.R., Drake, S.C.R.. Plunket, S.W., Messenger, T. McDonald, S.B., Vm. McDonald, J.B., P.C.R. Hester, Treasurer; Bro. Simpson was re-elected as Secretary, and S.C.3J. Drake was appointed in place of the re tiring , officer. A vote of thanks was unanimous...
LOCAL COURTS OF INSOLVENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 15 August 1862
LOCAL COURTS OF IN SOLVENCY. There is perhaps 110 part of Australia whero the want of a Local Court of In solvency is so severely felt as on Mount G-ambier. The folio-wing remarks of the Hamilton " Spectator " are therefore as applicable here as in Victoria. Our con temporary "says that the want of. local Courts of Insolvency is felt daily in every up-country town in the colony, but it is only occasionally that'the^brief reports of the Melbourne Insolvent Court, which appears in the town papers, ]show; to the public how urgent this want is, and how much fraud and commercial immorality the present system engenders. It is too generally the case that when once a country trader has filed his schedule a complete finish is* put^to everything in connection with his affairs. The assets, often estimated in the schedule at several hundred pounds, arc never realised, and go, no one knows how. The creditors, in nine cases out of ten, never even prove their debts. The different meetings in the e...

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, AUGUST 15, 1862 THE BRITISH COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 15 August 1862
Published every Friday morning. V III DAY, AUGUST 15, 1862 THE BRITISH COLONIES. IT is instructive to notice the marvellous change of opinion that has lately come over the British public respecting the de pendencies of the British crown. For merly it was a received and settled opinion that colonies were a source of wealth and power to a nation: and in the frequent: wars waged with Holland and France, the British belligerents made it their chief object to possess themselves of the colonies of their enemies, as a means of weakening these enemies, and strengthening themselves. And no doubt, under the old system of colonising, colonies were a source of wealth and strength. Some of them were made asylums to that unhappy class of man kind " who leave their country for their country's good." All of them afforded a certain field for the most energetic and enterprising of the home country's, sur plus population. Most of them offered a sure market for home manufactures, and gave in return the...

GUICHEN BAY. Robe, 9th August, 1862. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 15 August 1862
GUICHEN BAY. Robe, 9th August, 1862. (From a Correspondent.) I notice the Penola correspondent ol the Portland G-uardiun remarking upon the Rev. Mark Dixoh having to leave thai, locality, said " so much for the ministerial squabble." The last of it was not seen in Penola, however, it was seen here last Sabbath day, when Mi*. Dixon, being detained through stress of weather, the Rev. J. Sheldon in the most graceful manner gave up his pulpit morning and evening to Mr. Dixon, who officiated on both occasions, thus showing that if any difference ever actually existed between them as ministers, they showed much good sense in mutually forgetting and forgiving it. It would really appear that the misunderstanding was not of their doing nor seeking, and others must be responsible for it and its consequences. It would seem that the people of that district neither wanted the one nor the other. It is a grave question and one well worthy of consideration, how minis ters in country districts are t...

The attendance was not large, but consider able interest was manifested in the pro ceedings. Mr. Gr. Pannell was voted to the chair, and after explaining the object of the meeting, read the Report for the past year. The report showed that the Society was far from being in a flourish ing condition. This was attributed, partly to the depression of the times, but chiefly to the apatliy evinced in the cause by the members themselves: and the report closed with an earnest appeal to the members and others, who had experi enced the benefits of such Societies...
