GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 22 August 1862

GENERAL NEWS. NEW MOTIVE. TOWED.-A new motive power, as yet unknown in Australia, except by reputation, has lately been offered to the pub lic by one of the principal firms in Melbourne. Ericsson's caloric-engine is chiefly known as connected with some expensive experiments to adapt it to navigation. These experiments were generally considered to have demonstrated that the coloric engine was unsuitable for that purpose ., and although occasional reports have been published, of its successful employment as a motive-power for various purposes in the United States, its failure as a marine engine has led the public elsewhere to suppose that it is equally unsuitable for other purposes. We learn, from an advertisement, however, that the caloric engine, so far from being a failure, is now extensively employed in nu merous and diversified uses in America, and with lindeviating success. It is said to be equally suitable as a stationary and as a por- j table engine. ] t.requires no #waier, an...

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1862. THE BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 22 August 1862

Published every Fridfty morning. FRIUAV, AUGUST 22, 1802. THE BALLOT. Most of our readers would doubtless be taken by surprise 011 learning by last week's-telegram- that the House of Com mons bad adopted a motion for vote by ballot by 33 of a majority. That mat ters have been slowly tending in that di rection since the passing of the Reform Bill is obvious to every observer; but the ballot having been hitherto associated; with universal suffrage, it has been re jected for the same reasons as the other. It is important to notice therefore that the Imperial Legislature have treated the ballot as a separate question-as not ne cessarily involved.with universal suffrage, or open to the same objection?. The lat ter has certainly not gained much of late in general estimation. British states men have learned, even from the admis sions of the colonial press, that it ia a very dangerouB weapon to play with. But it cannot be denied that vole by ballot has worked,well in these colonies, and mig...

STRANDING OF THE JET. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 22 August 1862

STRANDING OF THE JET. On "Wednesday afternoon last, the Jet arrived at MacDonnell Bay from Guichen Bay, to "which latter place she had sailed direct from. Melbourne. She anchored in the Bay, and next day was to unship | her cargo, mainly timber, but comprising also a miscellaneous cargo. But JOU Thursday, before she commenced to un load her cargo, it came on to blow a stiff gale from S.S.~W., and she began to drift a little, but in the opinion of Captain Baynon, she would have held to her moorings, and withstood the strong gale but for an accidentr-the unshackling of her own chain, which was attached to the mooring chain. The Captain had come on shore on "Wednesday: but on Thurs day morning, between nine and ten o'clock, the mate hoisted a signal, and the Captain immediately proceeded on board. A3 the chain was found un shackled, the Captain bent on another anchor, and dropped it close under her bow. He then paid out his port chain to its full length: but this had not been done very...

OUR ROADS! GREAT PUBLIC MEETING OF THE INHABITANTS OF MOUNT GAMBIER. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 22 August 1862

OUR ROADS GREAT PUBLIC MEETING OF THE INHABITANTS OF MOUNT GAMBIEB. On Monday evening last, a Public Meeting was convened of the inhabitants of Mount Gambier, for the purpose of dincnssing and agreeing to a Memorial; to be sent to the Government, on the subject of our Roads. The night was very dark; the roads were in their amplest state of mud and water; to ven ture out 011 such a night was not merely a great inconvenience, but a positive risk : yet at the appointed hour the National School-house was crowded, and the enthu siasm evinced showed that the question, the water, and the mud, had thoroughly penetrated the understandings of the people. There were, of course, a few rough "escapades," but we have heard and witnessed similar ejaculations and scenes even in the great Guildhall of London itself, when dignified noblemen, wealthy bankers, and corpulent aldermen have had to " run the gauntlet" of an excited crowd; and Guizot and De Toequeville have long ago pointed out that the hus...

To THE EDITOB. Sir,-Your correspondent who loves his country so well dates his letter from Adelaide I see. Now, sir, I think you will agree with me that Adelaide is not the place to judge the state' of the labour market. Your correspon dent thinks I must have allowed my imagina tion to be worked upon, but I can assure him that I find it a reality, when! have to dip so Often and so deep into my pocket to letch out the money to pay such high wages. . Keep up the wages, says he; never inind how many employers go through the Insolvent Court. If wages cannot be kept up in any other way, he says, put on public works. It is not the duty of the Government to supply labour to work the land which they are selling every week. Oh no: let them use the-money in keeping a lot of idle fellows on the roads do ing little or nothing, wit h an overseer to every two or three; this is evidently your corres pondent's ideas about the duty of the Govern ment.
