FLOUR, GRAIN, &c. (Review for the month ending 25th August, 1862). [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
FLOUR, GRAIN, &c. (Review for the month ending 25th August, 1862"). The period which has elapsed since the de parture of the last English mail has brought about with it few changes in the corn market. The weather has been altogether ungenial, a succession of cold and continuous rains, snow and hail storms, which has injured the growing crops in some wet localities, - and kept back vegetation to an unusual extent; if fine weather with sunshine does not follow soon, it will re sult in disaster to the agricultural interest, as a good breadth of land under cereals will ha ve to be sown a second time, while in other in stances the seed has not yet been put in. The roads in the interior are bad, and difficulties are now experienced in the transit of mer chandise to many localities. It has been re-1 marked, however,that the amount of business transactions generally resulting, is of greater magnitude than might have been anticipated under the circumstances. PtouB.-The weather has op...

THE LABOUR QUESTION. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
TI1E LABOUR QUESTION. THE EDITOR.] Sir,-" Farmer " says I date my letter from Adelaide: truth so far; but Farmer does not date his from anywhere. I find Adelaide has always been the best place to judge the labour market from, and is still. He finds a word in my letter which I never wrote: viz., never mind how many employers go through the Insolvent Court. I still say, put on public works ; it forms no part of the duty of Govern ment to supply labour to work the land: what country besides us does it P certainly not the countries that progress the, most, I am glad sir that you have no need of men on your roads : had " Farmer " only made that public sooner no doubt our Parliament could with fairness have voted less than Eight Thousand for this year to make roads &c. in your district, and applied it where roads are wanted: and the men are fully worked for all they receive. I am sorry your district keep^ 25 per cent in overseers ; we don't do so in Adelaide. I demur from men gett...
GEORGE STEPHENSON. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
GKEOBGE STEPHENSON. After remarking that through the pressure of engagements he must request permission to depart from the custom of reading a regularly prepared manuscript, the Lecturer then proceeded. The following is the substance of the Lecture by the Rev, H. T. Burgess, which was delivered last week, at the meeting of the Mount Grambier Literary Institute: " My subject to-night has its advantages and its disadvantages. It has its disad vantages. My hero was no warrior, with f a recital of whose deeds of daring I might kindle up the latent martial enthusiasm in almost every Englishman's breast: his battles were many, but with one exception, bloodless. His heroism was displayed in saving-not destroying-men's lives. Had the subject of this lecture been a gifted poet-had he been an eloquent orator had he attained distinction in any part of the literary world, I might have borrowed some of his most lustrous gems of thought and fancy, whose brilliancy would have enlivened my own pros...
THE LAST GOVERNMENT "KICK." [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
THE LAST GOVERNMENT " KICK." THE Government have got into the knack of ''kicking" this district; and members seem to be so pleased with the facility which they have acquired in the art, that the process is repeated on all - occasio n great and small. Every item is now, aB a matter of course, struck out, if it relates to this district; and the Estimates are not to be defiled with such vulgar names as Mount Gambier, Penola, and Mosquito Plains. The last performance of this kind occurred in the House of Assembly on Tuesday, September 2, when a motion in favour of a line of Telegraph from Penola to Kincraig was lost by a majority of 13 to 10. Members may " strike out but the people of this district may learn to strike back! Members voted as fol lows. For the motion:-The Treasurer? | the Attorney-General, the Commissioner j of Crown Lands, the Commissioner of I Public "Works, Messrs. INT. Blyth, Coglin, Grundy, Peacock, Townsend, and Lindsay (teller.) Against-Messrs. Bakewell, Boucaut, C...
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE SEPARATION. [To THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE ? SEPARATION. [To THE EDITOR.] Sir,-A correspondent of yours made, in a late number of your valuable paper, some very sensible remarks about the foolish manner in which the Mount Gam bier people have acted with regard to the Separation movement. They set their faces against an agitation which might have been productive of great good to the place, and at any rate would have awaken ed the Government to thd necessity of doing something like justice to our wants, At present they naturally think we are quite satisfied. When a memorial has been presented to them declaring our in violable attachment to South Australia, and a loyal desire to maintain things as they are, how are they to be blamed for giving us our wish F No doubt the Adelaide folks laugh in themselves, and thank their stars that we are so eagerly pleased-but as long as we are satisfied they can have little scruple at. applying the immense sums raised from our lands to places near Adelaide. This is of ...

TRAMWAY TO MACDONNELL BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 September 1862
TBAMWAY TO MACDONNELL BAT. IN referring last week to the requirements of this district, we said the most urgent want was " the means of conveying our produce to Port MacDonnell." At the present moment were the farmers heavily stocked with grain, potatoes, and dairy produce, it would be impossible for them to take advantage of any rise in the market because of the state of the roads. They are completely shut out from a market, and consequently, depending as we do on agriculture for our support as a commu nity-our prosperity is entirely HOPELESS Nor is there any likelihood that this state of things will be improved. The expenditure on our roads hitherto has not been productive of any adequate benefit; the formation of a mile or two of road at one end of a long line, leaving a large portion still impassable, doesnotmakethat road one whit the more available for us than before. Nor will our case be permanently im proved by the expenditure of the recent vote of £6000 on the road between P...

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1862. THE LANCASHIRE RELIEF FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 September 1862
$ftc Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 186?. THE LANCASHIRE RELIEF FUND. WE hope Mount Gambier will not be behind other places in the colonies in supporting the above very deserving cause. Unfortunately, however, our aid could not have been solicited at a worse time. "We question whether any district between The Mount and Melbourne is suffering for the want of uioney to the same extent as Mount Gambier. The deficient crop and low prices of the present year have left our community deplorably poor. People may be said to be subsisting on the credit and prospects of the coming harvest; and if the truth were told, there is to be found no small amount of actual distress in the township and vicinity. Nevertheless, it is well that we have a harvest-and we hope from present appearances it wil prove an abundant one-in no distant prospect. If money be scarce, food is plentiful and cheap; and that is more than can be predicted of the manufactur ing districts of Englan...
THE AMERICAN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 September 1862
THE AMERICAN "WAR. Talking over the prospects of the war with a highly influential citizen-a man of the world who has travelled in Europe and studied man and manners as he went, and who is profoundly impressed with the necessity of victory over the South, in order that America may become a " nation," which it hag not really been since the days of Washington, I asked him if he thought it possible, supposing the South were conquer ed in every field and at every point, that all its prominent men were ruined, exiled, or decap itated, to resto.e the Union as it was before, so that both sections of the count* y might live in peace with one another, and send their repre sentatives to Washington once again to debate and vote in the same halls for the good of the - republic. He frankly admitted that the old Union was at an end, and that the new Union would rest on a very different foun&lt;||£^n. But, new or old, I asked him if it were likely that it could be maintained without a larg...

GENERAL NEWS. TIIE CLERICAL SWINDLES.-The very ' Rev. " Mr. Crouch received his sentence on as clear and undisguised attempt at forgery as modern times could have wit nessed. We refer to him again to call attention to the extraordinary fact that paid agents iuEugland-Messrs. "Walcott and Childera-should have allowed this mau to receive the appointment of chap lain on broad an emigrant ship freighted with young women, who were supposed to look u] on Mr. Crouch a? thair spiri tual adviser. And how was this done ? Mr. Crouch presented a series of testi monials, some ] ro'iably real but some cer tainly forged, and without making en quiries iuto the genuineness of these tes timonials, colonial agents appointed this man to an office which, of all others, should be filled by a man of morality, in tegrity, and good sense. With such tes- £ timonials,. and holding such a position, * this black sheep was upon his arrival in 1 Melbourne forthwith receivedby the clergy ^ and actually filled the ...
