TO SAVE BEEP. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

TO SAVE BEEP. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I believe that there is a great failure of the honey this year, and that, in consequence, the bees are all dying. I submit an old fashioned recipe for keeping bees alive, with very little cost. To two-thirds of sugar add nearlv one third of salt: mix them in water until in a thick paste; then take a bundle of sweet balm and dip it in the basin of paste and rub the inside of the box, continuing it as often as necessary. I am, Sir, &c, C. Adelaide, March 12. Habd Pens. — If a steel pen is hard and ob stinate, refuses to yield when pressed, and annoys by its rigidity, hold it half a minute or less in the flame of a gas light or candle, and immerse it in water, oil, or tallow. In most instances it will cure the rigidity. In fact, it is a good practice to pass a steel pen through the flame of a lamp before using it. This burns off the oil used in the tempering, and prevent* that slipping of the ink, or the refusal to flow, generally noticed in a...

VOLUNTEER PRIZE SHOOTING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

VOLUNTEER PEIZE SHOOTING. TO THE EDUOH. Sir — I see that an order has been issued from the Staff Office requesting those who are en titled to compete for the forthcoming prizes to assemble at the butts ou Maxell 26, at U a.m. Now, Sir, it states in the prize list, dated February 4, 1868, that the general prizes, con sisting of £50, £30, and £25 each, will be com peted for on a day to be fixed by the winners of the £10 prizes, and the three members from each troop and company who have made the next highest scores. According to this I do not understand why the men themselves are not allowed the opportunity of nauyng the time. It is probable that it will be 3 o'clock in the afternoon before the firing is completed. Every volunteer who attends at the butts knows that it is difficult to fire at the long ranges when the sun is glaring in his eyes ; therefore I think that 8 o'clock a.m. would be a more suitable hour. I aui, Sir, &c., VOLUNTEER.

THE GREAT "WEED" INVASION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

THE GREAT ' WEED' HJfVASION. A gentleman recently returned from Tas mania states that in that colony large tracts of country are so entirely over grown with thistles and other noxious weeds as to be absolutely valueless. Pad docks are covered with dense crops of thistles as if they had been regularly cul tivated ; and if any one, on looking at the wild and tangled prospect, asks why nothing is done to cure the evil, the answer is — ' It is gone too far for that.' No doubt in course of years even weeds wear themselves out ; just as the aphis and other insect pests, after desolating whole districts, themselves die away and disappear, pursuant to some hidden but beneficent law of nature. But alternate processes of exhaustion and restoration, though accomplishing all that is needed in uninhabited or but sparsely occupied countries, should yield to more economic processes, where population is settled, where industry has established its per manent home, and where science and civilization ...

When the Prince left the luncheon tent of the Sailors' Home Picnic, he escorted the Countess of Belmore to the door of the Royal tent, and then turned to converse with Hjs Excellency the Governor, the Chief Justice, and Sir William Manning. They remained talk ing a few seconds, and then His Royal Highness and Sir William Manning saun tered across the 'green towards the clump of trees bordering the beach, and under which the Galatea Band was stationed.

THE ALLEGED TREASONABLE LANGUAGE BY THE LYSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

THE ALLEGED TREASONABLE LANGUAGE BY THE LYSTERS. The SaUarout Star reports a most exciting scene at a meeting in Ballarat, when the Messrs. Lyster were questioned as to the use by them of language derogatory to His Royal Highness. Mr. Dyte, M.L. A., presided. We condense the following from the Star :— Mr. William Lyster, in ths most positive manner, repudiated the charge of disloyalty. During the seven years he had been in this country he had never shown a disposition to be disloyal; and was it not a dreadful thing that a man should be mobbed in the theatre without ascertaining first if he could be fairly charged with the offence; complained of? It was not English fasMon. When his brother was mobbed the previous night at the theatre he was not allowed to speak. Mr. Bond he did not know, and Mr. Lee had himself, in the presence of many gentlemen, stated ' Mr. Lyster, in what your brother said to me there was nothing which, as a loyal subject, I could feel offence at.'

Since the date of my last letter we have had occurrences here o£ surpassing interest— ^-tne downfall of the McOullocn administration, and the assembling of the new Parliament. These, however, have been utterly eclipsed by the more momentous and deplorable occurrence at Sydney. The telearrams announcirar the out rage on the Prince produced an impression upon the public mind more profound than any thing that lias occurred for many a year. Groups of people were to be seen about the streets, on Thursday night long into the still hours, discussing the atrocity of the crime and conjecturing the probable motive. On Friday morning, the first thing that most of the business men of the city did, was to wend their way to the Exchange-room, for the pur pose of learning the latest tidings of the Prince's state from the telegrams of Greville & Company. The large room of the Exchange was inconve niently thronged for an hour or t...
