MINISTERIAL STATESMANSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 March 1867

MINISTERIAL STATESMANSHIP. The action which does duty just now for ihe statesmanship of the Ministry is not likely io bs very beneficial to the colony. If our Ministers really aspire to be statesmen, we have evidence on all sides of tlie failure of iheir ambition. They are too unskilful at the pretty little game of diplomacy, which lias bscGine so much the fashion with them since the prorogation, to score many marks to the credit of the colony they assume to represent. Putting aside for the moment their numerous j home troubles, the disorganization of the Civil j Service, and ihe Northern Tcrriiory inuJdie. I the relations in to which South Australia is beinar 1 allowed to drift with tlie neighboring colonies give our rulers an undoubted claim to wear suits of motley and sport caps and bells. While one member of the Cabinet after another is. run ning backwards and forwards between Ade laide and Melbourne, accompanied (as we learn fro:n the steamers' passenger iis:.?) by ! as many fa...

Low tender, eoothiug, sweat, Like a soft show'r after beat, Is the twilight bour. With it all cur woes would seem To pass forgotten as a dream, When morning light Las come. Then biigbt forme of long ago Fiit ia tbe twilight to and fro, Aud steal us from ourselves. In tbe glowing fire we see ?Something of futurity, However dark and dim. Castles in tbe air wo raise, In the brightly leaping blaze, E'en though with it to die. To cur hearts, faith, hope, and love Descend from their bright home above — At the twilight hour. Angel visitants are near us Uuseen, still hov'ring round to cheer as On our homeward way. Holy thoughts, akin to Heaven, Uuto erring man are given At tbe twilight hour. At that bour our hearts give birth To aspirations not of earth, But lore to God and man. J. ...

The editor says he should not have admitted the narrative had it not been that Monsieur C ? is personally well known to him as a truthful and honorable injin. and had himself furnished the nonnnnf. affirming on oath the absolute exactness of every detail which is therein given. Monsieur C ? , when inspecting certain mineral tracts in Brittany, stopped one night at a little roadside inn, a few hundred yards from a mine which he had never seen, but which he purposed visiting next day. Having walked many miles in the course of the day, M. C ? , on reaching the inn, felt very tired.

ANNUAL EXHIBITION OF THE i STRATHALBYN AGRICULTURAL j SOCIETTY. I The second annual exhibition of this Society was held at Strathalbyn, on Thursday, in a icatquee erected opposite the Robin Hood Hotel and- in ibe paddecks adjoining. From an early hour of the morning a stream of -visitors and exhibits of every imaginable variety poured into the township, and it soon became evident that all anticipations of success would be more than realized. The accommodation which had been thought ample.for the grain, vege tables, fruits, and dairy produce was inadequate for the proper display of the extensive assortment of articles exhibited, while the crowd of visitors fairly blocked the gangways during all the afternoon. And no one who saw what Mr Hogaith at the dinner ? called the ' magnificent young men and women' who flocked to the show, could doubt the substantial advantages enjoyed by residents in the distiict. Strathalbyn had put on its very best colors, its produce was displayed with prid...
