VICTOR HARBOR. MEETING OF RATEPAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

VICTOR HARBOR. MEETING OF RATEPAYERS. On Tuesday morning, the 17th instant, a large number of the ratepayers of the En counter Bay district, from all quarters, as sembled at the Victor Harbor Hotel, Port Victor, in. compliance with, an advertisement which had appeared in the newspapers signed by Mr. Grimble, the Chairman of the District Council, to consider the by-laws in relation to th« depasturage of cattle on the waste lands of the Crown, and also to consider the illegal conduct of the Council in relation thereto. Mr. A. F. Lindsay, J.P., was unanimously voted to the chair, and after reading the ad vertisement convening the meeing, said he presumed the Chairman df the District Council, being present, would give them some informa tion as to why he had called them together. He knew nothing of the purpose, but apparently, from the wording Of the advertisement, the Chairman was acting in opposition to the Test of the Council, and he would urge upon all speakers moderation in what the...

CLARE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

CLARE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The second exhibition of agriculture and horticulture and first show of live stock in connection with the above Society, took place on Tuesday, the 17th instant. The town of Clare was thronged with visitors from all parts of the Northern district, and we were most agreeably surprised to see so many present, when we take into consideration the various public gatherings elsewhere, including a well patronised Catholic bazaar at Sevenhills. The Clare folks were going heart and soul into the affair. This Society formerly formed part and parcel of the Northern AgriculturalSociety. Two years ago, the Society was divided, and now Clare bids fair (if we may judge from the Show of 186S) to rank -with any AjjricultuT al Society out of Adelaide, in fact in the matter of fruit, we believe Clare will bear favorable comparison even with Adelaide. We noted a marked improvement in the manner in wMch the tables were arranged for the display of the various exhibits. There w...

THE COMING ELECTIONS. MEETING AT MOUNT PLEASANT. A public meeting of the electors of the dis trict, of Gruroeracha, was held at 'the Talunga Hotel, Mount Pleasant, on Wednesday evening, March IS. The attendance was tolerably large, and Mr. John Godlee presided. The Chairman initialed the proceedings, by explaining the business of the meeting, and pointing out that it was somewhat peculiar for them to have a contested election. Mr. ALEX. Hat first addressed the meeting. ' He commenced by referring to the necessity of an amendment of our present land laws. He .regretted that, a Bill to remedy the existing defects was not passed during the last session. He thought the system should be so altered as to enable A man without much capital to settle upon land. . At present a farmer with, limited capital could not do so without running heavily into debt.. (Hear, hear.) He contented that allowing persons to purchase at deferred pay ments would not have . the effect of occa sioning a depreciat...

WRETrNTJ AT'TAOTNDA. The Hon. P. Santo met the electors at Tanunda, on Wednesday, 18th March, at 8 o'clock p.m. The meeting was fairly attended, and Mr. F. Basedow, J.P., was voted to the chair. The Chaibman read the notice calling the meeting, and after a few introductory remarks, introduced the Hon. P. Santo, who was received with acclamation, and addressed the meeting on the different political questions similar to those reported at other meetings. In answer to Mr. Witt, Mr. Santo said his views on the education question were that edu cation at Government expense is very desirable. The rising generation ought to be educated, partifiularly with manhood suffrage. He did not think they received the full value for the'r money. Too much is expended in centres of population The scattered parts of the country ought to be better supported. He was in favor of denominational education. He was scarcely prepared to speak about compulsory educa tion. - Had heard it had been adopted in some co...

MEETING AT TWO WELLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

MEETING AT TWO WELLS. . A meeting of the electors, of Stanley was held at the Two Wells Hotel on Wednesday, March 18, to hear the candidates explain their political views Mr. H. Warren took the chair. Mr. Jas. McCord. begged, before the candidates' com menced, to propose a vote- of thanks to their senior member, the Hon. G. S. Kingston. This was carried. Mr. Kingston kindly accepted the vote of thanks, and said he did not think of calling their attention to things in the district at present, but as regarded his colleague he had given him more assistance than any other col league he had had. Mr. W. McCord proposed, and Mr. Barnfield seconded, a vote of thanks to Mr. H..E. Bright, who feelingly acknowledged the compliment! The Boa. G. S. Kingston then proceeded to address the electors. First of all he told them of their duty to. make known their wants to their members and the House by menioiial. They had been to the. Port that day, and the survey of land on the borders of the jetty an...

PRESENTATION AT GAWLER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

PRESENTATION AT GAWLER. We are indebted to a correspondent who has kindly sent us the following : — One of those pleasing manifestations which are occasionally met with by a man holding a public position oacurred in Gawler Town during the present week. It will be remembered that Mr. W. Barnet, proprietor and publisher of the Bunyip, was latelv nrosecuted by Mr. H. B. Briarht. ftLP., for publishing soms strictures upon the conduct of the hon. member. At the trial the Jury acquitted Mr. Barnet, as it was antici pated by most persons they would do. Al though this was so far satisfactory to the proprietor of the paper, and cast the major portion of the costs of the case upon the prosecutor, it still had the effect of leaving the defendant liable to any heavy costs necessarily incurred in placing before the Supreme Court a proper defence. These ex penses a number of gentlemen, who sympa thised with the independent course pursued by the newspaper, determined should not fall wholly upon th...

PLAGIARISM:—A CASE FOR MR. EVERARD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

PLAGIARISM :— A CASE FOR MR. EVERARD. Under the above heading, we have received from a correspondent a curious 'parallel reading' to Mr. Scoular's rust theory. Our correspondent heads it ' Plagiarism,' — but as the extract he f urnisaes is said to be ' from an unpublished MS.' it is just as likely that the author of the MS. has been parodying Mr. Scoular, as that Mr. Scoular has been plagiaris from the author of the MS. Any how, the singular coincidence of argument mu t be in the highest degree instructive to naturalists : — Me.' Scoulab in reply to microscopists o j Red Rust: — ' If the fungi spores can attack the higher order of plants while in vigorous growth, and upon these to re produce their own spe cies, then I am at a loss to understand Pro fessr Lindley's ' Bo-' tanical Classification of Plants.'

CAVALRY UNIFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

CAVALRY UNIFORM. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I quite concur in the sentiments ex pressed by 'Cavalier,' in your issue of this morning, regarding the present atrocious uni form of the volunteer cavalry. It would cost no more to give them a handsome uniform than an ugly one, or, if it did, the difference in ap pearance caused, by a better one would amply make up for the additional cost ; in fact, I dare say the men. themselves would willingly pay a small portion of the expense. The suggestion made some time ago by an ex-cavalry man, just from England, would be well worth following. He suggested a tight-fitting scarlet tunic with blue facings, and breasted with the same color, and ornamented with yellow cord, This, with a helmet and the present trousers (which, by the-by, would look better with white stripes instead of yellow), would form a very handsome and becoming uniform. A tight-fitting tunic, with short skirts, knee-breeches of some white material, and top-boots, with a helmet, would al...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOE. Sir — The vexed question of th.3 Northern Territory is assuming a somewhat grave aspect in the minds of the thinking and disinterested portion of the community. The Editors of the leading papers, and the Manager of a Bank, write in favor of reim bursing the claimants. TheBe, however, are not impartial writers, they being bound to sup port the interests of their constituents. When the Northern Territory scheme was first mooted, and finally carried out by the Ministry then in power, the Chief Secretary, emphatically gave the House to understand that not, under any circumstances, should tbe public purse be charged with incidental ex penses ; the enterprise was to bear its own cost. With this explicit1, determination, openly expressed, and inserted in the papers of the day, permit me to ask upon what grounds do the land-order holders assume to seek repayment? It was a simple speculation, and each person entered into it at his own risk. In mining, f...

THE MEETING OF RATEPAYERS AT PORT VICTOR. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE MEETING OF RATEPAYERS AT PORT VICTOR. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I shall be thankful if you can allow me space for a few words, I think of public in terest, relating to this meeting. . A burnt child, it is said, dreads the fire, but moths despise the flame, and, apparently, enjoy the scorching. Our District Council exem plifies the habits of the latter. The Chairman ?f the Encounter Bay -District Council, after admitting liability for law expenses, already incurred to the extent of £300, rushes to a lawyer for a legal opinion on the best means of exorcising 'the devil among the tailors' — in other words, on a disagreement among the Councillors — such opinion, of course, to be paid for by the long-suffering ratepayers. I think the Chairman was wrong in obtaining a legal opinion, without first getting the con sent of his brother Councillors, by motion in the usual way, and entered in the Council minute-book. For, if the Chairman may get a legal opinion on any difficulty, arising between...

VOLUNTEER EFFICIENCY [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

VOLUNTEER EFFICIENCY, We have published a paragraph privately supplied from Western Australia, which may be used ' to point a moral.' The final batch of convicts sent from England to that colony included a considerable number of Fenians who had been found guilty of treasonable practices in Ire land, and who had been iransported to the only convict colony in Australia. A report got abroad to the effect that it was not unlikely the sympathisers with these men might fit out an armed vessel and attempt to secure the freedom of their compatriots, either on the voyage out, or on their arrival in Western Australia. Hap pily, the voyage was accomplished in per fect safety, ana on their arrival at Fre mantle the prisoners, who were said by the captain to have behaved very well, were landed and placed in security. The Commodore commanding on the station thought it necessary, however, to send round to Fremantle H.M.S. Brisk just to take a look at the place, and see how tilings were going on, a...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY DILEMMA. Politicians know well what it is to f-talk against time,' and we really fear that Governments are becoming adepts in the art of deliberating against time.' As much precious time was consumed in 'deliberating' over the seed wheat question as would have sufficed for devis ing a scheme of relief, and now, the Northern Territory question has been fairly 'deliberated' to death, Ministers not making up their minds what to do, until it is too late to do anything at all. As regards the farmers, they may shift how they can, and if without means to crop the land, must let the land go un cropped. The Northern Territory certi ficate-holders are hot, however, quite so easily disposed of ; and., therefore, whilst asserting that it is too late ti survey the land under terms of the original contract, the Government accept the responsibility of dealing with the subject, and have, ©n several occasions, but especially in a post prandial manifesto at Port Victor, un fold...

Cape oats should be sown for hay in pre ference to the white, being earlier in growth and superior in quality for fodder. The selec . tion of seed for the wheat crop ought, also to be commenced.

ALBURY DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

AliBURY DISTRICT. We have heard so much of Albury as an advantageous home for emigrants who cannot find land on reasonable terms in' this colony, that any reliable information respecting it is of importance. Some of our friends who have talked about it at public meetings have spoken of it as a kind- of promised land, flowing with unillr and honey, and as holding out advan tages to intending settlers which are not offered in South Australia. Now, we 'confess that we have had some doubts on this subject, and pur advice to. persons contemplating a settlement in that won derful land has been to enquire well before they went, and not to be carried away with/every flying rumor which may have reached^ them, lest they should go further and fare worse. : A recent number of the Border Watch, contains some ' notes' on the district, written by a practical and intelligent farmer, who had -visited the place to see for himself what prospects it offered to an intending settler. : The opinion he has...

THE NATURE OF THE WHEAT PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE NATDBE OF THE WHEAT PLANT. Whether *ne wheat plant has always been, as we now find it, or had its origin in an inferior plant, is a ques tion not well settled. A French gardener, M. Fabre, sowed the seeds of a coarse grass named by botanists agilops, in the fall of 1839, which ripened in July following. Its seeds he sowed in the fall of 1840, and continued sowing the seeds every year until in 1845, when the plants then raised were regarded by all who examined them as genuine wheat plants. Its changes from the coarse grass were gradual, at first, producing few seeds, but which increased in number as its resemblance to a wheat plant became stronger. This experiment would indicate ihat the wheat plant is the result of cultivation. On the other hand, its deterioration, when uncultivated, should be rapid until it resumed the character istics of & coarse grass. This does not seem to be the case, for the wheat plant was found groyrang wild in California and Oregon, over a large...

But people don't like to nave any special hebby forced upon them, however impor tant that hobby may ultimately prove. In speaiang of Mr. Bandall in this way we mean no disrespect to him.
