CLOSE OF THE RIVER MURRAY NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 February 1867

CLOSE OF THE RIVER MURRAY NAVIGATION. The season of 1SG8-7 is now closed, and the ' state of the river' precludes r.ny idea of the resumption of the navigation of the Upper Murray until the winter rains again set in. The season which has just passed has, on the whale, been a prosperous one, although marked bv manv nut! srrions ramialf ins. T'ia trade iias very largely increased, and im mense quantities of goods have been shipped at the Kchuea Wharf for various points oji ihe River Murray, MuiTumbidgee, and Darling. The amount of wool, too, which has been dis charged has exceeded the average of former years. But the trade may for same time be looked v.po« ns lively to ineren-=i v^y largely and rapidly. The merchants of the Ovens j District must have felt the advantage which | speedy- river carriage 2Joss«Fses over lisa tedious | land route, aud will welcome the time when the steamers again begin to raove.

MILANG. Milang, January 23. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 February 1867

MILANG. [From our own Correspondent. J Milan?. January 23. Wheat is coming in in large quantities, chiefly for storage. Most of the. farmers are selling a little ; but, as compared to the bulk to be disposed of, a mere fractional part. It is matter of regret ihat with the immense surplus which must remain after supplying our own wants and those of the neighboring colonies, racre wheat is not being disposed of for the British market. The price is low, too low to pay the small grower ; but in the absence of even a remote prospect of getting a better, while our stocks are so heavy, it is, to sav the least of it. verv nuestionable rjoliev to permit the opportunity offered by the exigencies of Great Britain to pass unimproved. However, there are still five or six weeks in which shipments may be made, and perhaps a more foreseeing policy may prevail before their expiration. The exceedingly fine quality ; of the grain would, with care in the cleaning, place it ia the very highest rank in t...

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, January 31. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 February 1867

v THE METROPOLIS. * — I Written express1^ for tbe Sautliern Argus.] Adelaide, January 31. A stranger to Adelaide walking about its streets just now, or frequenting the back parlors with side doors and sanded floors, where thirsty citizens congregate, might fairly doubt whether such an abstruse science as thst of politics is known here at all. The very existence of a Parliament seems to be forgotten. The Honorable the Speaker has been calling himself ' Paddy Kingston' at festive gatherings in the North, and only checked his genial utterances in time not to pronounce the doom — abundantly im plied — of any reckless being, Dot his friend, who dared repeat the old familiar term. Of course I must By from the consequences of mr own temerity to the sheltering sanctuary of the Speaker's friendship. But if politics have subsided politicians are making hay while the sun shines. While the Speaker and his active colleague in the representation of Stanley, the Commissioner of Public TVorks, Mr E...

MEADOWS. Meadows, January 15. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 February 1867

MEADOWS. [From our own Correspondent.] Meadows, January 15, The district is in its wonted quiet state of quiet and tranquility, the only excitement being on the occasion of the starting and ar rival of ihe daily bus, which having a real live guard with red coat and bugle, is a matter of considerable wonderment amongst the juveniles. The daily mail and bus to this place is looked upon as a very great boon, and I have no doubt will be fully and prac tically appreciated, but the time allowed between Clarendon and here is not sufficient by about a quarter of an hour for the size of the conveyance and heaviness of the road. A much lighter conveyance would quite meet tne passenger requirements ot me piace, mane it easier and better for all concerned, and en sure the arrival of the mail in proper time without pushing the horses. And while on the mail subject I cannot alltry the matter to drop without a small tribute of thanks to the late mailman, Mr J. Wright, who, during tbe whole term of...

NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 February 1867

NORTHERN TERRITORY. The return of Mr Manton and the whole of the party under his command from the Northern Territory, even before Captain Cadell has sailed upon the mission now entrusted to him, illustrates very clearly the childish folly of the Government, in recalling them while there is work to do which they could have done. Whatever the fatality may be which nas maucea suca persisted oiunaering in Northern Territory administration, it has certainly affected Ministers in'Adelaide as badly as chiefs in Palmerston. When the Government determined to recall Mr Manton and his party, the Parliament had refused to pay back the money, but had expressly thrown upon the Ministry the responsibility of meeting the alternative of surveying and conveying the lands that have been sold. And it was with this alternative plainly staring them in the face that they rashly, and in a pet, determined to recall at a very heavy expense the party at the Cliffs, abandon the embryo settlement there, and bri...
