OUR VERNAL EQUINOX. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

OUR VERNAL EQUINOX. THE EDITOR. Sir,-This is the season of the vernal equinox : the period of the year when days and nights are equalised, when the temperature rises, when the cold, heavy, drenching rains abate in violence, when our bogs begin to dry up, and our roads improve, and when, therefore, men's hopes and expectations expand, and we naturally look forward to the re-com mencement of regular traffic, and, as a farther consequence, to a somewhat freer circulation of that *' metallic medium " which is thg life-blood of trade and com j merce. Here, therefore, we may pause, and Janus-like, look backward and for | ward, back to the dreary winter we have all but passed, and forward to that an ticipated change which the reviving sea son, with " balmy wing," may bring with it. That the winter has been a dreary one, is a painful confession which we need not now be scrupulous to make. Our exis tence has been all but a mere vegetation. Confined to a great Swamp, as the inha bitants of Mo...

RUSH TO THE DUNSTAN, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

RUSH TO THE DTJNSTAN, NEW ZEALAND. Most of our readers are aware that to the east of Tasmania and almost in, a direct line with Cape Horn lie the North and South Islands of New Zealand. The Northern Island which is separated from the Southern by Cook's Straits has for itd chief towns Wellington and Auckland, and the Southern between 40 and 46 de grees of South latitude has Otago or Dunedin. The Southern Island is now the scene of as great excitement as was Victoria and New South Wales in 1851 or California in 1848 and from a similar cause, the discovery of new gold fields. If the miners in this and the adjacent colonies rush at once to the Dunstan and suffer privation, the New Zealand Gov ernment cannot be held blameable, when the preceding notice is considered, and under any circumstances it will be better to delay the purposed visit till more re liable data is obtained. The Age of Saturday last says " Every vessel in the waters of Hobson's Bay, from an Ameri can clipper to a Dutch...

The Border Watch, Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1862. CAPITAL AND LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

Published every Friday morning. ; MUIMY, SEPTEMBER 26, 186?. CAPITAL AND LABOUE. | THE anc.ent and great controversy be tween Capital and Labour underlies most of our modem difficulties. It will be found at the foundation of the great strife which has dismembered the United States, and has "let slip the dogs of war" over a once fertile and va*t con tinent, where Man and his political in stitutions were once supposed to have reached the limits of human perfection. It is convulsing the huge empire of Russia, where a question once supposed to have been long ago settled in England, is banding the serfs against their mas ters, and breaking up feudal relations between landlord and tenant. It is at work in England, especially in Lanca shire, where the cotton failure has pau perised a great population, and oompelled. Parliament to step in, and stand, as it were, between the living and the dead. During the last eighty years it has been the standing controversy in France, pro ducing one revol...

ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

' ENGLISH. | The Princess Alice was married to the Prince of Hesse on the 1st July. It is rumoured that Sir H. Barkly's successor will be Mr. Hincks, Governor of Jamaica. The British Government have deter mined to defend all the Treaty ports in China against the Taepings, and have al lowed British officers to enter the service of the Chinese Goverment to discipline their troops. Parliament has framed an act throwing the poor rates upon the county in cases where they exceed in the parish two-thirds of the average rate. The funds for the poor in Lancashire had been well supple mented by private subscriptions, but great complaints were made respecting the apathy of the Cotton Lords, who had amassed fortunes from the labours of the sufferers. The Court of Session had declared the Scotch n.arriage of Mr. Yelverton " not proven." It is arranged that Prince Alfred is to visit Australia. The Queen had gone to Scotland, and in September was to visit Germany. The International Exhibition cont...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. ARTIFICIAL GRASSES. [To THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE ? ARTIFICIAL GRASSES. [To THE EDITOR.! Si-,-The efforts of our Victorian neigh bours in introducing various kinds of artificial grasses are worthy of our imitation. Much has been said and much has been written on the subject, but a plain, practical proof pre sented to the eye, of the most indifferent and careless of our colonial farmers, would, I think, do more towards convincing them than read ing half-a-dozen columns of the " Farm and Garden." I was yesterday riding from the Eastward to the Drop Drop, and a little past Fidler's old store, I was delighted to see a fine crop of Italian rye-grass, evidently sown on the stubble, and apparently laid down for a fallow, I have never before seen such a piece, say 25 or 30 acres, ofiartificial grass,jduring my long residence in the colon}'. As an old farmer, sir, I may be allowed to find fault, and say, that it should have been sown more regu lar and even, and a little thicker. However, it is worth going to look at,...

THE LATE CORONER'S INQUEST AT GTJICHEN BAT. [To THE EDITOR.] Sir,-J tliis day had my attention directed to a very incorrect account and one-sided report of the late inquest in the " Border ? Watch'' of August 27. I can only account for it by your own corres pondent's ignorance of the facts in the first place, and presumption in the second place. I being personally named as fore man, and placccl in a false position by him, I ask the right to state the facts truthfully }n your next. 1st, There were six blacks brought up on suspicion by the police: your own correspondent only says four. 2nd. Your own correspondent says the Coroner pointed out to the jury that he considered the evidence sufficient to com mit them for trial: they would not agree to a verdict, &c. To this statement I give my most unqualified denial. The question was raised whether we had suffi cient evidence or not: five of the jurymen wanted more: seven thought for the moment with the Coroner we had suffi cient. ...

JEMMY THE BLACKFELLOW. [To THE EDITOE.] Mr. Editor,-"Would you allow me a| little space in your journal to reply to some remarks of your " Own Corres pondent" in reference to the inquest held recently on the body of the above-named native, and which remarks appeared in your impression of the 29th August. I must crave the indulgence of yourself and the public for thus thrusting myself on your attention, my desire being, as one of the jurymen on the first Jury, to free myself from any imputation that the ab sence of truth and a negligent misrepre sentation of facts- are likely to convey. At the outset, your correspondent says it " appeared quite clear from the evidence of two other blackfellows, Tommy and Potbeot, (not Potbelt) that he came by his death through injuries inflicted on him by one or other or all of the "four" blackfellows held on suspicion by the police, namely, Mackenzie's Tommy, Johnny Wimpi (not "Wampi) and Jacky, -one, or other, or all-what kind of evidence do. you c...

COURT HOUSE, POST OFFICE, AND TELEGRAPH STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

COURT HOUSE, POST OFFICE, AND TELEGRAPH STATION. PnoM^a communication which has been addressed by our member, Mr. Hawker, to Mr. Crouch, we learn the gratifying intelligence that the Assembly has passed the vote for the grant of a sum of money to be devoted to the erection of a Circuit Court House, a Post-office, and a Tele graph Station ! The delay, Mr., Hawker states, in the passing of this grant, lias not been owing to the Government, but has arisen simply from the fact that the requisite plans were not previously pre pared. This has now been done, and the designs are stated to be admirably adapted for the purpose. The Government, it seems, has not been backward; and now that the money has been voted, we hope that there will be no delay in the com mencement of the works. Our approaching Circuit Court will painfully demonstrate the utter inade quacy of our temporary Police Court for the decent administration of justice. And though Mr. Pidler deserves great credit . for the pains a...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

GENERAL NEWS. South Australians generally are deeply im pressed with the notion that land ought not to be sold for less than £1 per acre, ana that the Wakefield system of colonization is the most perfect that has ever been devised. But both are fallacies, and with respect to the latter it has been found that though we bring out peo ple at the public expense they will not stoj here, as the other colonies offer greater induce' ments to them than this colony does. The Aldinga would return to Otago unlea more injured than expected. When at th Bluff, after the accident, she saved 900 valu able sheep from a wrecked ship from Glasgow and gets about £2,000 salvage.

INVALIDITY OF ALL GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 September 1862

INVALIDITY OF ALL GOVERN MENT APPOINTMENTS. IT seems tTiatuptothe middle of last week all Government appointments were in valid in South Australia. ' The "Chronicle" terms it " a startling disclosure," and certainly it was. It seems that ever since the introduction of Responsible Govern ment the public service has been carried out in a loose, and, frequently, in an utterly illegal manner. The fault rests chiefly with the first Ministry \rader the new Constitution Act, as it was certainly the duty of that Ministry, especially, to see that everything required by law to be done was done. They were entrusted with laying the foundation of the new political fabric, and succeeding adminis trations naturally supposed that all they had to do was to carry up the superstruc ture. The first responsible Government, however, failed entirely to comprehend their duties under the new Constitution. Trained afid nurtured in the trammels of officialism, and having no ideas beyond those which they had i...

Many interesting phenomena both in the natu ral and political world were touched upon by the rev. lecturer in illustration of his views. It will be remembered that Mr. Don lectured hMun December last year, upon the sixthvH. The present lecture was a contimmion of the speculations then laid before his hearers; for, as was remarked in course of the lecture, the two last plagues seem to blend together, and are poured upon the devoted earth simultaneously. "We are gflad to observe that there is every likelihood of the telegraph being extended to the Plains. It will bring us a little further within the pale of civiliza tion, and prove a great convenience to the...
