WILMINGTON AND ORROROO MAILS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

WILMINaTON AND OBB.OB.OD MAILS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Can you tell me which is in the best position to know the wants of & district in regard to postal matters — the public or the mail contractors ? The reason I ask this ques tion is that some time ago, when Messrs. Terry and Co. had the Wilmington and Orroroo line, the mail used to come from Wilmington, and brought Adelaide, Port Augusta, and Quorn letters, which could be answered the same day; but now, to eait the wishes of the new contrac tors, Messrs. John Hill & Co., we are put to much inconvenience, although a petition was sent down to the Postmaster-General pointing out the advantages of the old route. — I am, &o., COOilOOKOO SELEOrOR. CcoiEoaroo.May 12.

MR. TOLMER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

MR. TOLMER. SO TEB EDITOB. Sir— In your issue of the 7th instant you extract from the Kapunda Herald a paragraph in reference to the sufferings of Mr. Toimer. A few weekB ago I was in his company when I expressed regret at seeing him looking so ill and reduced to such circumstances. He mentioned a few of the hardships and privations be had to put up with, yet seemed in spirit as active as ever. We talked of old times, comparing the pment mounted police force with what it was when he and I served thirty and thirty-five years ago — vrnen tee troopers erposed them selves to dangers, difficulties, hardships, aud privations, for weeks together sleeping under gum trees with their saddles for pillows, while their pay was so ridiculously small that it was impos sible for cither officers or men to cave a penny. What is the case now? Officers and men are in comfortable quarters every night. There is no danger of a ball or spear pRBaing through them while travelling, or of their going to rest ...

THE OLD CZAR AND THE NEW. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

THE OLD CZAR AND THE NEW. An intense gloom overspread Europe at the time when the last mail left. The whole family of crowned heads, more or less closely connected with each other by the ties of kinship or of marriage, were in grief and alarm, not only because another of their number had fallen a victim to the murderer's stroke, but also because the suc cessful assassination of Alexander II. created uneasiness as to who might be the next victim of ramified and reckless con of masters in Russia might have on the in ternal rule and external relationships of that vast empire. Horror and detestation of the deed were not confined to the country which had thus in a moment been deprived of its visible head. They were freely expressed by men of all ranks and con ditions everywhere, and English sentiment was well embodied in the speeches of Earls Granville and Beaconsfield in the House of Lords, and of Mr. Gladstone and Sir Stafford Northcote in the House of Com mons, as well as in the press...

GLADSTONE'S FOREIGN POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

GLADSTONE'S FOREIGN POLICY. When Mr. Gladstone returned to power the fear was expressed pretty generally that the new Cabinet would at once create confusion in the foreign relations of England by undoing the work accomplished by the Beaconsfield Government, and re fusing to carry out treaties entered into with other Powers. It was supposed that there would be an immediate and violent reversal of the foreign policy of England, so that all the expenditure and the bold front that Britain had shown against schemes of European aggran disement would be wasted, and the greatest empire in the world would quickly recede into the humiliating position into which Mr. Gladstone had dragged her years before. Such gloomy vaticinations were repudiated by the present Premier, who said England must carry out her engagements with foreign Powers, and could not destroy con fidence in her wisdom and honesty by up setting all that she had pledged herself to do. He held that a new Government must accept th...

THE UNITED STATES CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

THE UNITED STATES CABINET. Next in importance to the inauguration of the President of the United States is the choice of a Cabinet to administer the de partments under his control. He has the full power of selecting the members of his Ministry, but his nominations must be con firmed by the Senate. Unlike the British Government, the American Cabinet is not responsible to the Legislature, nor in fact do those wno compose it occupy seats in either House of Congress. They are practi cally amenable to the President alone. He may suspend them from their functions, though under existing law their permanent removal must be sanctioned by the Senate. This Cabinet may be changed over and over again without signifying any alteration of policy or bringing about a crisis such as usually follows the retirement of pro minent members of an English Ministry, and especially the defeat of the Go vernment as a whole. Still, a Presi dent who would maintain relations as harmonious as possible with Congres...

The comparison is, however, really worse for last quarter than these figures show, for whereas in tho first three months of 1880 the exports included foreign goods re-exported only to the extent of £170,607, in the March quarter of this year the foreign goods re-exported were valued at £269,384.

THE EARTHQUAKE AT SOLO. London, April 9. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881

THE EAETHQU AKE AT SOW. London, April 9. A special correspondent at Scio telegraphs under dates of the 7th and 9th as follows : — * I have just arrived here from Constantinople, to find a picture of desolation such as is rarely witnessed. The town looks as if it had been terribly bombarded. Hundreds of bouses are transformed into a shapeless mass of ruins under which lie buried an unknown number of victims. The majority of the remaining bouses are already cracked and roofless, ocd m&v fall at anv moment. Nearlv erarv building in town suffered more or less. The inhabitants wander about anxious to search fcr missing relatives or lost property, but are afraid to risk their lives in tbe perilous work of clearing away the rubbish. Many who are willing to expose themselves to danger are pre vented by friends or by the police. Fear, grief, and despair are depioted on nearly erery lace, and nearly all have the same sad or tragic tale to tell. The first shock was felt on Saaday after...

OUR ENGLISH A-JRICULTURA.L AND COMMERCIAL LETTER. [From our own Correspondent! London, April 8. Tne last move in tne agricultural world is joint-stock farming. For money profitable in vestment is difficult to find, as the price of consols and railway stocks testifies. Companies of all kinds are being promoted, and at last a company is to be formed to farm land. English land is literally bnngaring and thirsting for capital; numbers of farms are lying untijled, and hundreds more are very imperfectly tilled because those who farm them have not capital enough left. I am glad, therefore, to hear of tbe JMUP^fClft V& 1UVUDJ UUIflUg W UWB «OUM U1XAVUS** any channel. To the landlords it must, indeed, be a welcome sound.

THE TAKAJ&UA. AND MA.BIA. DISASTERS. TO THE EOSTOH. Sir— The wreck of the Tararua, on 'Waipapapa reef, New Zealand, was a terrible less, and has overwhelmed many in deep sorrow. So far as the Weelevan Churoh in these colonies is con cerned there h'ee never been its equal at one time in loss of ministers and representative lay men. How clearly and forcibly does it impress upon our minds die inspired words : — ' 3a ye aUo ready , for in such an hour as ye think not the Bon of Man comejh.' An intense feeling of present time, which I hope will soon resolve iUelf into a useful, practical form. In the as scciation of thoughtone thing brings upauotaer. This shipwreck has brought to my mind another which occured fifty-five years ago in connection with IVeftleyan mission work, and which ex ceeded this in the number of ministers lost.
