THE MELBOURNE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

THE MELBOURNE CHAMBER OF COMMEBCE. The address delivered by the re tiring president, Mr. Jefiray, at the annual meeting of the members of the Melbourne Chamber of Commerce, repays attentive perusal. It is no mere commonplace review of a year's transac tions of the chamber, though these are dealt with in a clear, pertinent, and cogent manner. But the address is more than this. It is acomprehensive estimate of the mercantile situation in the neighboring colony. It comprehends the past and con templates the future with an eye of pre vision; while on the present con ditions, circumstances, and prospects of Victoria it dwells ?with, practical force and common - sense decisiveness. The industrial progress of the country is marked with approval ; its backward ten dencies are pointed out with absolute im partiality. Whether differing or agreeing with Mr. Jeffrey no one can reasonably suspect him of any intention to describe things as they do not in reality appear to him, or accuse Tnm of un...

THE SEMAPHORE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

THE SEMAPHORE. The weatler was rather too nnfavorable to indnce holiday-makers to patronise tb.9 seaside, but the Semaphore jetty was crowded on Tues day by amateur fishers, who appeared to be meeting with good sport. There was an absence, howtver,of trips on the bnny or picnio parties on shore, and the Semaphore was therefore far from assuming that cheerful aspect it usually wears on holiday occasions. The Royal standard was set at Fott Glanville, and it was expected that a royal salute would be fired off at noon, bnt for some reason or other, probably on account of the Governmental retrenchment policy, the event did not come off.

WATER. This recent rairs have gladdened the hearts of farmers in the northern and western districts, not only by facilitating seeding asd other agricultural operations and im proving the prospects of the next harvest, but by replenishing the dams and tanka from which they get their supply of the pure element for their live stock and for domestic purposes. Wisely, however, mmiT settlers are thinkinc of the future. and endeavoring to induce tke powers that be to make permanent provision for a, reli tble and sufficient water supply. Tad grett wsm. is not confined to Wapstraw; niiteigj squatters, and dwellers at in land and seaport tojrnsbips are affected by it. Unfortunately South Australia has an enormous extent uf waterless territory or country where the surface water does not last through the summer, and where for months in the year the natural reservoirs, generally creeks and rivers which do not ge altogether dry but exist in the form of chains of ponas, are few and many miles apar...

There tras nothing c'jikinel* novel «r peculiarly suggestive in the views expounded. As Mr. Torrens ad mitted at the outset, the principle of lsutunl help in the matter of emigration is rot new. Jt has bten tested iu various whys. It has been tried frequently tr,d has failed almost as frequently ££ it has been tried. As in many other partnerships, complete agreement as to mutual obiifralioas and rights has been ?more apparent than real.

OPENING OF THE MAOCLE3FIELD INSTITUTE. Tha Queen's Birthday was the day appointed for the opening of the Macelesfield Institute, which lias been in course of erection daring the last five or aix months. Although to any one enter ing the township in the morning there seemed nothing unusual astir, and the only evidences that the day was a holiday, were the three or four flags hcisted in the street, towards mid day the people began to master, and by 12 o'clock there was each a crowd in front of the institute as has seldom if ever been seen in this prettily situated little village before. The new fcafldiiig is plsoed in the centre of the town ship, on -tie left band side, and is. if not an im posing, at any rate a very neat little edifice.

They then ascended the platform and watched tie opening of the ball, the first dance on the programme being a polonaise. The promoters of the ball bad evidently taken great trouble to ornament the hall suitably, by farming devices of swords, rifles, and other implements of war, with which the brilliant uniforms ot the volunteers and riflemen consorted well, and to which the gay dresses of the ladies offered a pleasing contrast. The mnsio was played by tbe Military Band, and as the programme of dances was rather a lengthy one the festivities were kept up until an early hoar.

AN AMERICAN LETTER. New YorK, April 9. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

AN AMERICAN LETTER. Rew Yoik, April 9. The political revolution achieved by the election of last November is now complete, and we have once more a homogeneous Go vernment, the Senate having -wheeled into line and become Republican. Such a result could not have been long postponed _; but it has come abont in a somewhat striking and dramatic way, -which illustrates at once the general methods of American politics and tie gradual break-up of the 'solid South.' On the 4th March the Senate stood 37 .Republicans and 37 Democrats, with two Independents. One of tiiese Independents, Sir. Davis, avowed his purpose to Tote with the Democrats; the other, Mr. Mahone, of Virginia, maintained an obstinate silence. Everything turned on hifl vote. If he stood with the Republicans there would be a lie, and the Republican Viee-President would, have the castins voice. Mr. Mahose had led the repudiate ing_ -wing of the Virginia Democracy against the old so-called Bourbon organi sation, and had been made...
