TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 8 September 1866

TO SUITOR. Sir— I hare read with great attention the letters of ' Humanitas' and ♦'Thomas Smith' on capital crimes aud their punishment, aud do not agree with either The firnt-nientioued writer advocates total seclusion of the criminal convicted of murder, and would use the fear «£ this great punish ment as a preventive of capital crimes.

VINEYARDS AND WINE MAKING. TRELLISING, SUMMER PRUNING, AND GRAFTING. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 8 September 1866

VINEYARDS a*t- WINE-MAKING. TEELLISHfO, SUMMER PRUNING, AND GRAFTING. In old wine countries the great objec tion to the trellis is the expense of the wood, whieh is nothing here. The great advantage, although it has many others, is that the vines can be trained in such a manner' as to allow the ground to be ploughed between the rows without mueh danger of injury to the plants. I would therefore most strongly recommend this method whenever the nature of the ground will allow of the use of the plough. In rocky places and steep banks the other method may be adopted with equal advantage. In order to have a good trellis, it is by no means necessary to have sawed tim ber; rough 'branches of old trees, or young saplings will answer the. purpose very well. The uprights must be chosen of a sufficient length to be sunk deep enough in the ground to give them a firm hold, and they should be procured with branches so situated, as when cut off to leave supports for the rails. A post or upright wi...

VINEYARDS AND WINE-MAKING. LAYERING AND MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 15 September 1866

YIKEYAllDS a*V WINE-MAKING. LATEEING AND MANURING. Before concludingthe directions which I have thought necessary for the manage- ! ment of the plant, I will describe this : operation of layering, by wbich an empty j space in an old vineyard is most easily, and with most advantage, filled up. At the time of pruning the largest and strongest shoot from one of the neigh- j boring vines is to be selected and directed to the vacant spot, where a hole has been dug to the depth of six or eight inches. The shoot is then to be bent into this hole to that depth, and there fixed by means of a forked stick or peg. Its end is then to be turned upwards in as upright a direction as possible, and being tied to a prop, it is to be pruned to two or three eyes above the surface of the soil, which is then to be closed in about it. Towards the end 'of autumn the connection be tween the mother and the young plant must,be*dissolved by cutting off the layer a little underneath the surface where it has ent...

ELECTIONS FOR THE UPPER HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 15 September 1866

ELECTIONS FOB THE UPPER HOUSE. The constituencies have bestirredthem selves at the -last hour — almost at the' last minute, aud the result is that twelve individuals are before them, from among whom to select five. This is better, aud Just better, than having five to walk over the course - for even with the twelve before them they will find it difficult to vote for five whom they j believe really fit for an office whose duties demand the qualit ies of statesmen, and from which an unfit person cannot be ejected, until after the lapseof several years. Well, iet the electors first select those whom they believe to be fit, and make up the required number of five from the least unfit, in order to exclude those who, in their estimation, are, altogether so. To the electors of Gawler, and other agricultural districts we would say, examine the list of candidates, and if you find agriculturists there, vote for them, and next to them, vote for men known to be friendly to agriculture, for that ...

In ' Crawler on Sunday, after the customary three guns had been fired and the chequered flag hoisted, ears listened intently for a supplementary gun, and many eyes were directed towards the flag-staff, watching for supplementary signals ; and agreeably disappointed were the ears and eyee that none beyond the usual intimations were made. It was evident that Britain, at least, con tinued at peace. Terrific however were the war-tidings -disclosed on the morrow.

TALK OF THE WAGS. The talk (of the Wags) is that the election meeting at the Adelaide Town Hall on Saturday last was not a demon stration adequate to the occasion ; that the meeting was in itself singularly flat, and abounded with flats in the plural; that although the candidates then proposed exhibited the extremes of vouth ana acre neither of them is otherwise eminent, unless for mental and political mediocrity; that Sammy . Baphael was quite right to forbid a vote of cofidence in them-; that luckily the number was augmented before the' day of nomination ; that Mr. ] E. M. Martin's advocacy of' drawbacks' was altogether superfluous, the eolony having always had a sufficiency of that sort , of members. The farther talk is that 1 the anxiety displayed by the meeting for representatives who lave been 'tried men,' could not have been evinced at a better time than the present, the late, criminal session having furnished a far greater number of ''tried men' than any of its predecessors ...
