Psaboe, the Mayor of Kapunda, occupied the chair, and in opening the meeting he said the condition of the 'colony was such as to justify all of them to look upon the! coming elections as the most important that, had yet been held. The distressed 'state of the. staple interests, especially the agricultural interest rendered it necessary that the men they elected to represent them should be possessed of clear intellects, strict 'integrity, and good abilities. He personally had no fear for the future wel fare of the colony, but they should bear in mind that the choice of representatives on tins occa sion was fraught with more interest than it hitherto had been. One of the matters of great moment was the redistribution of seats. Ho was of opinion that at preisent the distri...

General Merchandise. — We have no mate rial alteratiou to note in the import market during the week, and the transactions entered into have been chiefly of a limited character. The commercial advices to hand by the mail show that the shipments to this colony are still on the decrease.

The examination, which was conducted in the presence of several parents and friends of the children, gave very much satisfaction ; the Trustees, who w.ere present, also expressed themselves as well pleased. The writing, dicta tion, and arithmetic, were creditable to the teacher, who, in his report, had_to complain of the irregular attendance of the children. In reviewing the work for the past 12 months, Mr. Graves took the opportunity to thank God that not a death, had occurred in connection with the school ; and, appealing to the parents, hoped they would encourage him to go on labor ing among them, by sending him as many children as they could spare from home duties.

BATAVIA. February 1. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

BATAVIA. . Februarv 1. Sugar.— Last year's crop is nearly all shipped away, and only very small patcels are now and then to be had at $14.50 to $15 per picul for No. 16. Sugars suited for. the Australian colonies will be obtainable early in May, al though the bulk of the crop.' will not -come in until later in the year. . ? - Freights continue to decline. The present rate for sugar to Holland cannot be quoted higher than |-7Q par last, equal to about £3 7s. 6d. per ton, E. I. Company's conditions, and as the bulk of the .crops is already shipped a further fall is not improbable. . The tobacco crop is expected to be large, and will soon be ready for shipment, which will to a certain ex tent tend to maintain freights. The Hesperus has been fixed for Melbourne at £3 5s. per ton, but we anticipate that the next charter will be at a lower figure, as but little produce is offer ing for that quarter. '??

LONDON CORPORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

LONDON CORPORATIONS. Municipal splendor in the old country is on the wane. While colonial mayors have been donning gowns, breaking out into festivity, rushing after royalty, and afflicting their servants with liveries op pressive to wear, an opposite movement has been making progress on the other side of the world. The Chief Magistrate of London has dispensed with the ' men at-arms' and the State coach. The sword bearer, the mace-bearer, and other sym bols of power and grandeur will soon be among the things of the past. Conserva tives and lovers of the spectacular are grievously afflicted. The last Lord Mayor's Show was shorn of its ancient pageantry ; the barbaric magnificence to which, cockneys had been accus tomed was wanting, and their feelings found vent in bitter groans or furious yells. The gorgeousness attending an institution of which the present mission is not as of old, to defend constitutional rights, but to construct drains and sca venge the city, has been long laughed ...

LONDON ROUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

IAMSDON ROUGHS. One remarkable feature that has recently developed itself to an extraordinary degree in London life is the growing power and increasing audacity of the 'roughs.' It has been the fashion among a certain class of English -politicians to point to . the rowdyism of ^ewrlfork and Boston as a proof of the debasing effects of democracy, and the inability of popular Governments to cope with organised ruffianism j but the London experiences of 'the last two or three years should for ever close the mouths of ultraConserva tives on this point. The majesty of the law has not of late been very efficiently vindicated against the armies of evil doers that have infested the British metropolis. At the starting of the special trains for the scenes ©f several of the most celebrated modern prize fights, gangs of ruffians assaulted passengers at the stations and plundered them on the spot, the police being powerless to prevent these outrages at the time, and not making a single arrest af...

OUR LAND SYSTEM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

OUR LAND SYSTEM. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Our land system wants revising, as nearly all persons are agreed. To begin with, raise the upset price to say 30s. per acre, and sweep away the land jobber. ' Establish an Agricultural Bank in Adelaide. Having paid £20 on account, vou sive a bill at 18 months for £100, bearing interest at 10 per cent, per annum. But I take it that the land agent can borrow Ms £100 on the same security as a farmer can borrow, and for the same amount of interest. Raise the price to 30s. per acre, the agents' price, and put it up to auction, and let the farmer know that three-fourths of the pur chase money can lie at interest at say 6 per cent., as Mr. Dutton has placed the bonds, and there will be plenty of margin of profit on the laud. This is the way an agricultural purchaser manages now : — Not having the means to buy, he goes to a land agent, who will want £2 down on every 80-acre section, and then he will buy it for you. He will let you have it with right of ...

PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL CONCESSIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL CON CESSIONS. IO THE EDITOR. Sir — I think the Government made a great mistake in granting concessions to the squatters. It was a bad precedent. The statistics of last year show that while the increase of wool was about the average, the number of sheep shorn was so small that they must have yielded nearlv £1 worth of wool each. Now. it annnars by this morning's Advertiser that a farmer that showed he was really sound wanted a loan, of seed to help him over this bad season. There is nothing objectionable in an honest man with reasonable expectations of being able to pay his debts borrowing, but any one over head and ears in debt had. better go to Mr. Downer at once. What farmers want is equal justice with the squatter — no lending at alL Then look out for the Northern Territory, that the unsuccessful speculators do not obtain gifts of public money. If the farmers do not get Go vernment relief in the shape of a gift, the red rust will be the greatest blessing...
