JUST WHAT WE WANT! [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862
JUST WHAT WE WANT ! IT is tlie peculiarity of some communities to be placed in such a prosperous position -in circumstances so naturally favour able-as to make it difficult for the most inveterate fault finder to "get up a griev ance." In other communities the misfor tune lies just the other way: and the legitimate grounds for complaint are so numerous, as to make it perplexing to decide which demands first attention. We opine that our's is the latter case. Our causes of complaint-our legitimate wants-are so numerous, that hitherto there has been no thoroughly combined action on any one of them. Prom time to time memorials have been forwarded: to the Government, backed by the mo3t convincing statements of the JUSTICE of our claims, and the only tangible result i has been up to the present moment-the expenditure of a small sum of money for a work that was never once specifically asked for!-namely, forming^a piece of road of about two chains length by the Telegraph Station. Meanwhile,...
PENOLA. (From our own correspondent.) September 3rd, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862
PENOLA. (From our own correspondent.) September 3rd, 1862. The weather up to the present time lias veen almost too fine to last, and proved itself so by pouring in torrents last evening and night, but still the wet will help vegetation amazingly. A case of some importance to the settlers in the neighbourhood was heard last week in the loc 1 Court before G. B, Scott, Fsq., S.M Police Trooper Jones v. George Burnett. The defendant was charged with having in his possession a sheepskin, of the value of 3s. which had been stolen, and the sheep unlaw fully slain, by which he had rendered himself liable to a fine or two months imprisonment. Defendant pleaded not guilty. Joshua Jones sworn: I am a police trooper. On 8th August last, being on patrol, I called at Watson's station, saw the overseer, and asked if there were complaints of losing cattle or the like off the run. He said not, but that he often missed sheep; he did not suspect any one, but several parties lived in the forest not m M...
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, AUGUST 19. THE MAIL SEEYICE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862
HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, AUGUST 19. THE MAIL SEEYICE. Mr. Reynolds asked the Treasurer whe ther the Government had received any overtures from a party in the colony re presenting English capital, to carry on a fortnightly mail between King George's Sound and this and the other colonies at a much lower rate than they had been led to expect. i The Treasurer would prefer that the lion, member should give notice of such an important question, but speaking gene rally he might say that the Government had not received such an offer as the hon. member alluded to. THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN HANDBOOK. The Treasurer said he had laid on the table a copy of the pamphlet intended for distribution at the Great Exhibition, and for which a vote would be sought on the Estimates, j Various measures were advanced through second and third readings. The Treasurer moved that the item £25,000for the introduction of immigrants from the United Kingdom, stand as printed. Mr. Reynolds said he had expected the Gov...
PORT MACDONNELL, (From our own correspondent.) September 1st, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862
PORT MACDONNELL, (From our own correspondent.) September 1st, 1862. The road approaching our Township, and referred to in my last, is, I am glad* to say, nearly completed ; by the end of this week it will be thoroughly so. The committee appointed at the meeting to superintend the work, have shewn, by judicious management, what can be done when people are stirred up. I think, if some of our leading men here were to put their shoulders to the wheel, we might in a short time have a good metal road through the township as far as the ap proach to the Government jetty. I have no doubt that such a thing will shortly be taken in hands. It only requires agitation, and " agitate " we must-by so doing, in course of time, have all our public wants satisfied. For the last seven or eight days we have had quite a change in the weather -being more like the middle of summer than beginning of spring. It is quite cheering to again have the sun shining in all his warmth and splendour, in lieu of the co...

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 5 September 1862
Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. At Adelaide very little business has been done in wheat and flour during the past week, and prices are decidedly lower than they were a week since. Until a day or two ago there were no export orders on hand, but since then a few thousand bushels of wheat have been purchased for the other colonies. We perceive by telegram from Melbourne that the flour snipped from Adelaide to the Cape per Galatea is very highly spoken of. It is very satisfac tory to find that this is the case, as it is proba ble that we shall in consequence have the Cape Colony as custome s for the future. It is said that another shipment will be made there at once. FLOUR.-The nominal quotations are about L12 for wire-dressed, and L12 10s to L^3 for silk-dressed. This, includes all brands. It is reported, however, that sales have l.een made at much lower figures for the latter description. It is very certain that if holders were obliged to realize they would have to submit to a ...

MOSQUITO PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) September 8th, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
MOSQUITO PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) September 8th, 1862. Any doubts that might have been entertained as to the fate of the Rev. Mr. Copeland, have now been set at rest by the discovery of the rev. gentleman's body in the Benyeo Swamp, near to the residence of H. McLeod, Esq. It was discovered on Wednesday morning last by the searchers, floating in six feet of water. It had thus been 14 days in the water. A smart thunderstorm passed over the district on Tuesday night, and no doubt contributed materially in render ing the body buoyant. On getting the body ashore it presented a very ghastly appearance, and the features were scarcely recognisable. The hat was firmly fixed upon the head, and the spectacles were still over the eyes. The Coroner was to have held an inquest upon the body yes terday, but we have not as yet heard the verdict, .though we have no doubt it will be one of accidental drowning. The body after the inquest is to be transmitted to Melbourne for interment. T...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
THE REV. JUWAN E.Woous-The scien tific reputation of the Rev Julian E. Woods attracted a more than usually large congrega tion to the CatKolie Chapel on Mount Gambier on Sabbath forenoon last. The chapel was crowded. The'style of Mr. Woods is plain, clear, and impressive; without aiming at eloquence, he rises far above mediocrity; and he conveys the impression of an earnest man seeking to make men in earnest. We shall hail with eagerness the publication of his book on " The Geology of the South-Eastern District." THE RAIN AND THE RoAios.-That Mount Gambier is the weitest portion or quarter of all South Australia, we know by scientific observation as well as personal experience. The official record kept by. Mr. Charles Todd sufficiently attests this.- Mr. Todd is the Observer and Superintendent of Telegraphs in South Australia ; and he has .-a- regular corps of friendly correspondents who- constitute a. kind of Meteorological ; SnA-whose noted observations are regularly published in ...
CAUSES OF OUR NON-PROGRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
CAUSES OF OUR NON-PRO GRESSION. BAD roads-or rather no roads-and the difficulty of easy access to a good shipping Port, are certainly the most prominent | of the causes why Mount Gambier, as an | agricultural district, does not make rapid i progress. But there are other causes; and these are revealed in the following I extracts from the Economist." Our | intelligent cotemporary perceives the " hitch," and points it out; and though it [ is applied to a very much larger area than is embrace J in The Mount, still the re I marks apply ivith peculiar force here. First, then, we are told, that " in al countries in which the principle of mere labour without the alliance of capital has been tried M'Culloch proves that precisely the same result has occurred-a gradual impoverishment, a general degradation to a point which may continue fixed for thousands of year's." Now, the system of small holdings, without sufficient capital to work the soil, and to erect proper and sufficient buildings and...
POLICE COURT. Wednesday, September 10, 1862. Before J. C. Lyon, Esq., S.M. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
POLICE COURT. Wednesday, September 10,1862. Before J. C. Lyon, Esq., S.M. Renfrey v. Manhood.-This was an action for the alleged illegal impounding of 13 head of cattle, and 4 horses. Mr. Burton put in an agreement on the.part of Messrs. Green and Wadham, of Adelaide, to let to R. D. Remfrey, Sec tion 324, at one shilling per acre, for grazing purposes only, the timber on the ground to be protected. B.. D. llenfrey had received no notice to determine tenancy when his cattle were impounded. "Wm. "Williams saw the cattle of Ren frey impounded along with others. They were driven by Manhood.' Manhood wished the case post poned until he could get his ; papers from Adelaide. "He had written for them, but they had not yet arrived. The case was accordingly postponed until the next Court of Full Jurisdiction, which will be held on the last Tuesday in the month, Renfrey in the^meantime to hold possession of the land. Sears v. Zippell.-This was a case of assault: the defendant pleaded not guil...
ODDFELLOWS' ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
ODDFELLOWS' AOTIVEBSABY. The Oddfellows' on Mount Gambier held ? their anniversary on Thursday-yesterday. I he day was fine, (a contrast to that of the last year, which was a very wet day,) and upwards of forty walked in procession, pre ceded by a band, to St. Andrew's Church. The Rev. James Don delivered the annual oration, taking as a text, Eccles. iv. 9, and the $ discourse was an illustration of the " Advan- \ tages of Unity." ' "We find," said the rev. gentleman, "that we can get on only by the help of one another. Tottering along life's uarrow and tangled wilderness, we are fain to hold on to each other in order that our footing may be secure, and that our wants may be supplied. Amid the manifold ills that flesh is heir to, and the hard battles many have to fight with a fickle and inconstant world, it is some consolation to possess the sympathy and support of others, and to be cheered by fraternal voices. Take away brotherly sympathy, and you take the sun out of the world: you...
