WENTWORTH, MARCH 7. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

WENTWORTH, March 7. iJ - Business still continues very dull here, but there is the appearance of an improvement this last week. There has been a slight rise in the Darling, which lias allowed some of the smaller boats to get up to1 Menihdie; and I understand the Bogan Riveris coming down bank high. If such is the case they will be able to go further. The Jolly Miller arrived from Qoolwa yesterday, and will proceed up the Darling on Monday.— On -' Monday last' 'a great num ber of the inhabitants of- this town, were to be seen - wehding their way', ibp;the boiling-down establishment,': to witness the commencement of operations; there. Mr. Qosse, with his usual kiWdness, showed us over the place, aud explained the process to some bf the squatters and other gentlemen, the principle being quite' different to\that it Port Auguste, and other places.

THE GUMERACHA ELECTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

; THE GUMERACHA ELECTION. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I see by your issue of this mormng that yonr reporter,- at Teatree Gully, on the 19th instant, reports as follows : — ' A. Murray, having remarked that the Hon. A. Blyth left his nomination paper behind him by mistake, &C.' Now, Sir, I made a statement that the Hon. A. Blyth did not wish to put himself forward as a candidate when absent from the colony, but had, at the special request. of a few friends, left his nomination paper with me, to be used in the absence of suitable candidates if required by the electors. The candidates are abundant, there being four, and more talked of, therefore I considered that I was acting in accordance with Mr. Blyth's wishes when I withdrew his name, notwithstanding that many of the electors have expressed themselves much disappointed, as they were prepared to return hi**) under all circumstances. Your inserting this in your next issue will oblige, Yours, &c, A. B. MURRAY. Adelaide, March...

FLOWERS AND FLORISTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

FLOWERS AND FLORISTS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I wish to draw your attention, and that also of the public, especially exhibitors or in tending exhibitors at the Agricultural and Hor ticultural Society's Shows, to the following fact, namely : — I was a large exhibitor of plants in pots at the Show held on Thursday last, amongst ihe rest of which was a new fuchsia called the Rose of Denmark,' which gained the first prize as a single fuchsia. Now, Sir, I was there at an early hour the following morning to take my plants home, and packed one load up and sent away by my son. During the time he was away with the above load I was getting the remainder of my plants to the door, which consisted principally of fuchsias. When I went to where they stood, the above-named variety was gone, and was not to be found in or out of the building. I made my loss known at once to all who had plants, and lo several who were not exhibitors in that department, when the Hon. J. Hodgkiss's gardener also lost some ...

THE AGRICULTURAL RETURNS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

THE AGRICULTURAL RETURNS. TO THE EDITOE. Sir— Can you tell me when the Agricultural Returns will be published, or whether they will be made known at all? I am assured that they were sent in long ago, but that Mr. Boothby is absent on leave somewhere in the South. I do not object to a Government officer having a holiday, if somebody else is appointed to do his work, but really public business ought not to be neglected, and especially in a matter of so much immediate importance as the agricultural returns. Great contrariety of opinion prevails, and people know neither whether to hold, to buy, or to selL The Government had far better let all statistics alone than to shove them away in their piegon-holes, as I believe they are now doing. ? I am, Sir, &c., ' - . - - , ONE INTERESTED.

MEDICAL REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

MEDICAL REFORM. TO THE EDITOE. Sir — It is possible that seme of my friends may have a little anxiety to know the meaning of the case Stockbridge v.. Braddpck as reported in Court proceedings Normanville, 26th Feb ruary. It is not for me to comment upon the grave decisions of the law. If the merits of a case can be clearly put, I believe the law means and is calculated to decide truthfully, but it sometimes happens that one of the parties to a suit is left single . handed to contend against what may be said by three or four on the other side ; and it may happen also that each and all of them may have (directly or indirectly) self interest enough to bias the mind in one direction, and yet this gees for weight of evi dence.. Such evidence, however, does not always satisfy the public ; the Court outside arrives at its own conclusion in its own way. Those of my friends who know me best and whose anxiety I may be wishful to satisfy, will believe me when I tell them that there was nothing...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

TO THE EDITOB. Sir— I must confess the letter that ap peared in the Express of Monday, headed 'Flowers and Florists,' and signed ' Edwin Smith,' rather surprised me, although I must own it ought not to have done so. It is very Burprising'how bad a construction persons of small and narrow minds, and also those who are overburdened with spleen, can sometimes, put on a small matter, and this is strongly illus trated in the present case. I am, however, very glad to state that any lemarks that may ema nate from such men as Mr. E. Smith do not destroy the peace of mind of either of the part ners of the firm of Giles & Pascoe. There is an old saying, ' It is better to live in spite than pity,' and I have always found it correct Mr. Smith is very nattering with the unction he pours on my head. I do not thank him for it ; but as I witnessed nearly the whole of the little fracas, I perhaps may be allowed to give my version of it, and also to state that at the time I considered the mat...
