VICTORIA. March 3, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
VICTORIA. [From our Melbourne Correspondent.] March 3, 1868. At length we have the official announce ment in a Gazette extraordinary issued last night of the meeting of our new Parliament. The Houses will assemble formally on Friday in next week for the purpose of swearing in the new members, and the business of the session will commence on Tuesday, the 17th. It is thought that the incoming mail will in the meantime bring replies from the Home Govern ment to : important despatches from here, in cluding probably the aidress of the Legislative Council. .-.??--? It would appear that the temper of the op posing parties in Parliament has been in no way improved by the dissolution. A determi nation is. already finding expression on the part of the minority to offer a most determined opposition to the schemes of ihe Ministry. It is understood that a Supply Bill for a large amount will be brought in, to enable the Government to carry on with, but t'ris will be strenuously opposed as unconst...

OUR LAND SYSTEM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
OUR LAND SYSTEM. TO THE EDITOE. _ Sir— -The question of our land system is ex citing a good deal of discussion, and there ap pears to be a wide-spread desire for a change. The sooner this question is dealt with the better, as the very uncertainty is in itself sufficient to account for the falling-off in the land sales.' The importance of the subject is my excuse for troubling you with a suggestion on it. Our present svsteni of selling Crown lands is creating an absentee landlord class, which is allowed on all hands to be a great evil. Already the rents sent out of the colony to absentee landlords amount to nearly £400,000 annually. Our present system encourages a reckless ex penditure in times of prosperity, as these people have confidence, and invest money in land, and it intensifies and prolongs periods of depression, because, when the Reaction begins, one principal source of revenue falls off, as at the present time Now, I think that most of the difficulties about the Crown Lands...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
TO THE EDITOE. ' Sir — Now that the grand change is to be made for our common country, every man who values the privilege of universal suffrage ought to be up arid at work for a great and grand cause, namely, the saving of this country from universal ruin.' First and foremost is the land question, not merely its repeal, but when we repeal the present Act, to be prepared to substitute, some thing better in its stead. It is useless for can didates to come forward and abuse the present Act without . being prepared with something better in its stead. It is easy to find great, big, .empty .words, such as were spoken at the Blumberg meeting. One candidate spins a. fine long yarn about a system .which he calls a ' Land Bill,' a thing which is as hard to .be unravelled as the Gordian knot We want something simple, something that may be .seen through by every humble man in the pro-' vince. And, as an elector, I would suggest the following first principles as the basis on which a new Land Bil...
THE CATHOLIC SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS.. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE CATHOLIC SCHOOL EXAMI NATIONS.. TO THE BbrXOE. Sir— Of the examinations which have been concluded at St. Francis Xavier's Hall, under the superintendence of the Very Rev. T. Woods, I cannot write in terms too commen datory. These exercises have reflected the highest credit upon teachers and pupils, whilst to a large assembly of visitors, it must have been abundantly clear that without vigilant and most unremitting attention on the part of masters such admirable results could' not have' been achieved. The new hall presented a really gay and brilliant appearance. Already bright and lightsome, it seemed to borrow ad ditional beams of sunshine from so many youth ful countenances all radiant with delight as they looked forward to their hopes of success in the distribution of premiums. I may indeed venture to say that the intellectual treat pre sented to a numerous array of parents and friends could not easily be surpassed. The amount of useful information displayed by the pupils, the...
THE DISTRICT COUNCILS ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
THE DISTRICT COUNCILS ACT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — As you were good enough to send a re porter to the ratepayers' meeting held at the Dry Creek on the 10th ultimo, perhaps you will have no objection to- publish a few remarks bearing upon the facts and opinions discussed at that meeting in relation to the District Councils Act. The few ratepayers of Tatala who got up the meeting, and took subsequent action in the Adelaide Police Court on - the resolutions then adopted, were not actuated by any hostile feeling towards the members of the District Coudcil, or the others, who made up ths dozen to make the shilling rate ; but because they saw and felt for the many, that it would press too heavily on their half-ruined means. True, at the eleventh hour, the Council seemed willing to give work in the most urgent caseB of need, by small con tracts or day work, but as four or five hundred could not participate in that benefit, some would have to be distressed to support the rest. It was, therefor...
PASTORAL LEASES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
PASTORAL LEASES. TO THE BDITOE. Sir — I see that a number of persons whose relations or friends are largely interested in squatting matters are coming forward as candi dates for the next elections. Will you inform the public when the leases valued by Mr. Goyder for renewal, and hot affected by the Act of hist session, will fall in, and when they will have to be offered for sale? This is important, as one candidate, who is well known to be the writer of the articles in your paper on the South-East, has in one of those articles opened a fresh ques tion in relation to squatters' improvements. I am, Sir, &c, - AN ELECTOR. Adelaide, March 2, 1868.

GOOLWA IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868
GOOLWA IMPROVEMENTS. TO. THE EDITOE. Sir — I crave room in the columns of your valuable paper for the insertion of a few lines respecting a matter of vital importance to the port of GooWa and the district generally. I refer to th-s great want of adequate means for the loading and discharging of steamers at the Goolwa Wharf. Notwithstanding the many improvements which have been effected here very re sentry, there is still a sad lack of means for the- quick and efficient handling of cargo. It is true we have four cranes on our jetty, but they are so slew in - their action that dispatch is quite out of the question and utterly impossible. It is a noto rious fact that the steamer Coorong when load ing wool at Victor Harbor, takes on board with her own 'steam winch, as much wool in a few hours as cari be done by all the cranes on the Goolwa Wharf in a week. It is obvious enough to everybody that dispatch is necessary here to do justice to the requirements of the trade, especially -when w...
