MEADOWS. Meadows, February 5. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 9 February 1867

MEADOWS. i Meadows, February 5. A few weeks since tbe hopes of tho.se in the neighborhood who are anxious to see our school -room erected, and whose subscriptions have been paid for a long time, were raised rather high by seeing a notice in the papers to the effect that the District Chairman had been instructed to call for tenders for its erection, but as we have not yet seen any advertisement calling for the same, I suppose it is likely to be on a par with the other dilatory proceedings with reference to the same object. More than five months ago the Treasurer stated, in answer to a question put to him at a public meeting, that he had £87 in hand, and if any persons present would guarantee the necessary sum to make up the £100, they would immediately call for ten ders for a building to that amount (vide Southern Argus, September 1, 1866.) Tbe amount was at once guaranteed by Messrs W. Burley, D. Simpson, and P. Murray. This, with, the equivalent from the Education Board, would make...

COLONIAL WINES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 9 February 1867

COLONIAL WINES. YiThere a ir.a?k-it is to be found for the wines '? manufrehired in Scuth Australia is becoming every -lay a question of more and more im- j porlance to tlie large bcuy of colonists who have adopted that pursuit. Cultivation is r/ipjfSlv extending- iind exporlaiion is de ci-easing. Scarcely any progress is made in '? the desirable work of increasing the home cou sumption, and ir-any growers find their stock virtually unsaleable. There are of i course many reasons whicli may be assigned for this unfortunate deadlock iu the develop ment or an important producing industry, and while enumerating some of them we shall endeavor to consider how far it is possible to remedy the evil they entail. Dealing first with the question of home consumption, by which we mean of course South Australian consumption, there can be no doubt that the main reasons for its non success are to be found in the ignorance of very many wine-makers, of how to properly manipulate their wines, and want...

AMERICAN BREADSTUFFS. San Francisco, December 9. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 9 February 1867

? OO ? AMERICAN BIIEADSTOFFS. San Fraiicisco, December 9. Inactivity has characterized the breadstuff* market lately, and prices both for flour and wheat have ruled lower. They eiased at a decline r-f 25 cents per barrel for flour, and fully 5 cents per lOOlbs. for choice shipping and milling grp.&cs of wheat. This is attiibuiaU j mainly to the desire on tbe part of leading holders to realize, and to the with drawal of leading purchasers for export from the market. Flour was quotable at close at 1 dol. 70c. to 1 dol. 95c per lOO'.bs. The latter figure was for prime. Valparaiso December 2. In brcadstv.ffa we have still au inactive market. Vessels are becoming scarce, and tbe high freights to Europe will check any material rise in wheat. To-day we quote at 5dols. 50s. to 5dols. 95c., less 6 per cunt.
