MOSQUITO PLAINS. (From our own correspondent.) August 29th 1862, [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 29 August 1862

MOSQUITO PLAINS/ (From our own correspondent.) August 29th 1862, A painful sensation has been created throughout this district during the past few days, by the tidings thgt the Rev. Mr. Copeland, Church of England Clergyman for the Border district, was supposed to have met his death by drowning. It appears that the Eev. gen tleman had left the homestead of Mr. Hamilton on Tuesday last, 19th inst. at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, in order to proceed to Kirbybolite, a distance of 12 miles. He had arrived within a short distance of the home of Mr. H. L. McLeod, Beneyo, when he had evidently mistaken the way, and tried to cross a large swamp lying .before him. Into this swamp he had proceeded for about 70 yards, when the wheels of his-buggy got fast upon a stump, and his traces were broken. The water at this spot was 4 feet deep. The rev. gentleman must then have- got into the water, unharnessed his horse, and let him go, as next day he was found quietly feeding upon the bank with a piece...

PORT MACDONNELL. (From our own correspondent.) August 25th, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 29 August 1862

PORT MACDONNELL. v (From our own correspondent.) August 25th, 1862. I am happy to be able to inform you that the " Jet" schooner has been got off the beach, -without any great difficulty. She was taken to the Government moor ings on "Wednesday evening, and appear ed to have sustained no material damage. On Thursday morning, the wind blowing fresh from the S.W., and the glass fall ing, Captain Grermein thought it better, after having taken in some ballast, to put to sea, intending if possible to run di rectly for Melbourne. Captain Beynon happened to be on shore at the time, ar ranging for cargo and clearance, and was unable to get on board before she sailed. He has since left overland, en route for Melbourne via Portland. The weather has been very moderate since. The approach from the Government Road across the Swamp to our town ship, having become completely im passable. A Public Meeting of the in habitants was called to consider the best means of mending the way. In accordance wit...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 29 August 1862

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. TILE MOUNT GAMBIER LITERARY INSTITUTE. -From an announcement in another column, it will be seen that the Second Lecture of the Mount Gambier Literary Institute is to be delivered on next Thursday evening, by the Rev. II. T. Burgess. As we have some ex pectation of an improvement in our remark able weather by that time, we hope to see an excellent attendance; more especially as the Library will be opened on that evening, for the first time. Anticipating an excellent Lecture from Mr. Burgess, our regret is that the evening of its delivery should be the one preceding the morning of the publication of the Border Watch. This will compel us to defer the report of the Lecture until the week ensuing. It is always best that the publication of a Lecture should immediately follow its delivery, for the old adage is good-" Strike while the iron is hot." We will do our best, however, under the circumstances; and if we should be compelled to defer a fall report until the week f...

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 29 August 1862

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH MEETING. On "Wednesday evening a meeting took place of the Presbyterian Church congre gation, to consider the propriety of taking steps towards uniting with the Presby-. terian Church of Victoria, The Rev. D. McCalman, of Narracoorte, presided in the precentor's desk, but the meeting was poorly attended, owing no doubt to the bad state of the weather. The rev. gentleman opened the pro ceedings by reading the requisition call-, ing the meeting. He then in an able manner pointed out the advantages to be gained by joining the Portland Presbytery, Situate as this district was so far from Adelaide, he csrtainly considered that this congregation was entirely free from connection with that Presbytery, as they Jiad nev. r referred to them on any subject, and it was impossible for ministers here to attend the Adelaide meetings, the ex pense and distance being tpo great, so that they might consider themselves vir tually cut off from that body. Now with regard to the Portla...

PENOLA (From our own Correspondent.) August 17th, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 29 August 1862

PENOLAa (From our own Correspondent.) August 17th, 1862. The weather is still very unsettled, but the last few days there seems a tendency to improvement. I hear that the Bev. Mr. "Woods had a narrow escape of an accident in crossing the Mosquito Creek the. othej day. Happily he escaped, but lost his breviary. A spirited race took place on Thursday morning on the training course, mile event, between Mr. John Cawker's Sambo and Mr. A. Cameron's Amsterdam, for £10 a-side. Amsterdam being more accustomed to the flat country than the Nigger, succeeded in getting a length in advance of his adversary after a dashing race. Only a few of the elite were pre sent, it being a sharpener for breakfast. A rather good race took place between two storekeepers of this township, and two of the neighbouring residents who had " sloped" in a very suspicious manner for Queensland. The bolters had a good start, but nothing could stop the un daunted storekeepers, who kept up the pace from the start, and wo...

ADELAIDE CRIMINAL COURT. James Smith was charge with obtaining certain goods and moneys, to the value of L.11,   of Alexander Campbell, April 14th, at Robe Town, by means of a cheque drawn in his own name upon the National Bank, Mount Gam- bier. The principal witness was Alexander Campbell, storekeeper at Robe Town, who stated that the prisoner made some purchases at his store early in the morning of April 14, amounting to about L.2, and tendered the cheque produced for L.11 drawn on the Na- tional Bank.

Burgess, and the subjeet was George Stepenson, and the Eise and Progress of the great Railway System of Great Britain.

The Library was opened for the first time; and there was a fair demand for books, which in itself is indicative of progress. J. C. Lyon, Esq., S.M., occupied the chair; and briefly introduced the lecturer to the meeting. Mr. Burgess gave an interesting sketch of the life and career of George Stepenson. His early struggles, patient industry, and indomitable perseverance were illustrated by vari...

MOSQUITO PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) September 2, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862

MOSQUITO PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) September 2, 1862. "We are glad to learn that our spirited neighbours, Messrs. Smith (Broad meadows) and J. Affleck (Kerbybolite), have secured a number of the Nigretto rams lately sold in Melbourne, and which excited such keen competition among breeders of sheep. Two of these, bought by Mr. Smith, cost respectively £100 and £06. With such an infusion of fresh blood into the flocks, our Border settlers will be enabled to hold their cKvn in future shows of sheep stock. "We wish the little foreigners a safe journey from Mel bourne to the Plains. There is still no tidings of the body of Mr. Copelacd, though the search has been kept up with little intermission since we last wrote. It appears that the carrier who left here some time ago with the Chinese met with rather a sad " contre-temps" on the other side of the Glenelg. His dray was upset -one Chinaman was killed, another had his back and a third his legs broken. From letters written by ...

©to Watch, Published every Friday morning. ' F IfT DA Y^ SEPTEMBER 5, IJ-6?. OUR CLAIMS ON ADELAIDE. WE had hoped that the seemingly liberal sums proposed to be placed on the Esti mates for the benefit of the South-Eastern District would, for the present at least, have placed us in a tolerable position, j We are very far from admitting that these sums in any way represent the debt which j the Government owe to our district. We | do not admit that they are sufficient to i settle all claims, or to carry out improve- J vnents absolutely necessary. But, unfor-; tunately, most of the promised grants are yet IJT NUBIBTJS. Small and inadequate as they are, we have not yet got them. Our Roads, our Court House and Graol, our Benevolent Asylum, are still among the things that are to be-perhaps a generation or two hence. Our local resi dents are in the habit of dilating on the claims the district has on the Adelaide government; and we ourselves have not been behind in pressing these claims,( s...

GUICHEN BAY. (From our own correspondent.) Kobe, September 1st, 1862. On Thursday a notice was issued by our Stipendiary Magistrate, calling a public meeting to consider the distress existing in Lancashire and the other manufacturing districts of England, and to organize a relief fund. A meeting | was accordingly held on Friday evening, | when a Treasurer, Secretary, and Com 1 mittee were appointed to carry out effic: eatly the objects of the meetipg. Some £20 was raised immediately, and about two hundred circulars issued to all parts of the district, which it is hoped will be the means of collecting a large sum of money. Extracts from home papers and private correspondence were read, detail ing most vividly the extent and depth of distress into which nearly one hundred thousand operatives are thrown by want of employment, consequent upon the non-supply of cotton, which has been stopped by the iniquitous war in America. England, Prance, and other European powers is continued, it is ...

THE COMING ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862

THE COMINO ELECTIONS. THE current session of Cur South Aus tralian Parliament draws to its termina | tion; and a G-eneral Election is not very remote. It is, therefore, for the constitu ency to bethink beforehand; and consider who shall be our future Representatives. From henceforth we are entitled to two Members; and these our Bepresentatives should be men who will confer character on the District, and in all seasonable and reasonable ways attend to its wishes and its wants. With our actual member, the Speaker of the House of Assembly, G-. C. Hawker, Esq., we have 6very reason to be very well satisfied. As SPEAKEB, he has been precluded from taking that active part in debate, which would have brought his name repeatedly and prominently before us in the Parliamentary reports. But though obliged to be all but a silent repre sentee, he has been very far from being either a neglectful or a useless one. He has worked for us unseen. Our repre sentations have always received his prompt an...
