THE SEED WHEAT QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE SEED WHEAT QUESTION. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— On the 14th instant a deputation of dis tressed farmers went to the Hon. the Chief Secretary for relief by the 'loan' of seed wheat. What has come out of it ? A refusal to help, pleading inability ! By following and reviewing, step by step, the reply of the Hon. the Chief Secretary. I could not arrive at anything but that the Government is ^pathetic to the best interest of the colony, viz., the farming interest. 1. The Hon. Chief Secretary stated that no way was suggested how to meet the matter with fairness. I thought a Government would not be stopped in the face of such trifling difficulties. Mr. Kruger pointed out the best way to relieve the farmers, viz., through the District Councils, presided over by a Stipendiary Magistrate. 2. The Chief Secretary alluded, also, to Mr. Carrig's (Cowie) case, as not deserving relief. If Mr. Carrig's position, as stated by himself, is such, I say he had no business to apply for relief, but I doubt if...

POLITICS AND LITERATURE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

POLITICS AND LITERATURE. TO THE EDFTOB. Sir — Your contemporary has raised quite a storm in a teapot in reference to Mr. Colton's remarks on ' an honest press.' The Register must indeed have been stung to the quick, when, instead of its usual decorous phraseology, 'it indulged in such expressions as 'foul slander,' ' absurd vagaries' of a ' fifth-rate politician,' &c. It almost reminded one of the davs -when, under the vigorous conduct of the late Mr. Stephens,- actions for libel were thick as leaves in Vallambrosa, no less than five having been tried at one Civil Sittings. Without endorsing Mr. Colton'B remarks, I can't see why the Register should have taken them to itself. The speaker probably referred to a portion of the weekly press, notorious for its attacks upon 'the disciples of Punshon.' Whether, or . not, surely Messrs. Andrews, Thomas, & Clark do not constitute the press of the colony. I must, however, give them credit for a considerable amount of astutenes...

Last Day op Term. Saturday, March 2L [Before the Full Court. 1 'New Practitioners. Messrs. Geo. W. J. Stevenson and James Brook were admitted practitioners of the Court. Judgment, greayer v. born. This was a case reserved for the opinion of the Supreme Court by the Local Court of Port Elliot. The Chief JuBtieeread the judgment of the Court as follows : — In this case the Court is of opinion that there should be a new trial. The question on the new trial will be entirely one of fact, whether in. the opinion of the Loc d Gourt the plaintiff acted in such a manner, either by himself or by William Gardiner, his agent, as to lead the defendant to believe that the property in question was still the property of 'Virgin. The question of the alleged sale to Barker is immaterial, since it would not pass the property, and. the evidence received by the Local Court was rightly received. IN BE -SHEBATT. This case was answered in the negative. Court adjourned till Tuesday next. The Equity Court wi...

THE UNITED STATES AND THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE UNITED STATES AND THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Will you be kind enough to inform me through the medium of your paper how many States there are now in the American Union ; also, how many of these States have passed laws entirely prohibiting the sale of intoxicating: liquors ? lam, Sir, &c, J. W. KITSON. Finniss Vale, March 18, 1868. [There are 34 States in the Union. A gentle man furnishes the following information in reply to the second q'ie=-tion :— The 'Maine Liquor Law' was adopted in the State of Maine in May, 1851, by a vote of 18 to 10 in the Senate, and in the House of Representatives by a vote of 86 to 40. The following States have also adopted laws in some- cases almost exactly the same as that passed in Maine, and in others containing the same leading principle — that is, the entire prohibition of the sale of intoxicating liquors, though differing from the Maine law in Borne of its minor provisions — viz., Massa chusetts, Rhode Island, Missouri, M...

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

THE CAVALRY UND70RM. TO THE EDITOE. Sir — Allow me, through the medium of your valuable columns, to say a few words in support of the cavalry having a more suitable and chaste uniform. They are, if I mistake not, entitled to a new uniform in. July next, and I think it would be a great pity if they should again re ceive the same style of uniform, after what was said about their dress while ELR.EL the Duke of Edinburgh was our visitor. I would suggest that in place of the present brick-colored serge jacket, which is very ugly, and far too baggy, that they be presented with a bright scarlet tight-fitting tunic, made of cloth or fine flannel (not serge), which would greatly improve tbe appearance of the troop. And instead of the present cap, which is very hard and uncomfortable, far too heavy, and very ugly, I would suggest a helmet, or if a cap, a soft, double-peaked cap, with a yellow band, which would be more comfortable. Lastly, any person accustomed to the saddle must know that not...

MEETING AT INGLEWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

MEETING AT INGLEWOOD. A meeting of the electors of Gumeracha was held at the Inglewood Inn on Monday evening to hear from Mr. Ebenezer Ward an exposition of his political views. There were upwards of 40 persons present, and Mr. J. Longbothain was voted to the chair. Mr. Ward then pro ceeded t-* exnlaiii his oninions udou the pro minent questions of the day, and in his address, which occupied nearly an hour and a half in its delivery, he was frequently applauded. At its conclusion the candidate was questioned upon Bevera! points, chiefly \-y Mr. Gollop and Mr. Hounslow. Mr. George Wells then moved, and Mr. Pos&ingham seconded, that Mr. Ward was a fit and proper person to repre sent the district. Mr. Hounslow supported the proposition, not only because Mr. 'Ward's views were liberal and agreed with those of the majority of the electors, but because he had proved his ability to maintain them in fair and straightforward argument. The proposition in Mr. Ward's favor on being put ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE READING-ROOM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE READING-ROOM. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I trust you will find space in your paper for a few remarks or complaints about the present management of the Institute Reading room, The first is the unbearable state of the room from want of sufficient ventilation. My self and many others have been compelled to go outside — for what we termed a blow — upon several occasions, and while comparatively cool out of doors the reading-ioom seemed like a hothouse. Then again — Why is it there are two copies of the Register and but one of the Advertiser exhibited ? This is the moie incon venient as the latter, or Adveriser stand, is generally overcrowded, while few occupy the Register stand. Whether the Advertiser is the more popular of the two, or that it is' on account of one copy only being shown in the room, I will leave other readers to decide ; but I have often to wait for an hour or two before obtaining a glimpse of it. Another very great fault in the management is the la...

MEETING AT GAWLER SOUTH. The candidates for Yatala District — Hon. L. Glyde, Mr. Cavenagh, and Mr. J. Pirt— met the electors at the Mill Inn, Gawler South, onMon d-iy evening, 23rd inst. There was an attendance of from 80 to 100, but not all electors. Mr. J. Mitchell. .T-I* w«.s voted to the chair. : Messrs. Glyde -and Cavenagh; auddressed the. meeting mostly as reported before, and in answer to questions, Mr. Glyde said the land system needed alteration. He thought the Dutch auction system, with three different classes of land, would be best. He said under Hay's pro posed scheme the land would not bring in so much, money to the Government. He would not support free selection and deferred payments. He had not prepared a Land Bill embodying his views, but he felt sure the Parliament would deal with the matter. Most undoubtedly free selec tion, with deferred payments, would lessen the value of lands. Did not think our land syotem . would drive the people away. The system in Victoria i...

MEETING AT MILLBROOK. Mr. E. Ward met between 20 and 30 of the electors of Gumeracha at the Millbrook Hotel, Millbrook, on Tuesday evening, the 24th inst. Dr. Adey was voted to the chair, and at once called upon the candidate to address the meet ing:. Mr. E. Wabd on rising said his object in meeting them that evening was to give as many as liked to attend an opportunity of judgiug of his fitness to represent them , in the ensuing Parliament. He did not come before them as one with a large capital or landed stake in the country ; but as. one who depended upon his own industry and exertions for his subsistence. They had heard a great deal about the other candidates being propertied men. and they were all opposed to an absentee tax, which was an illustration of how property influence worked on its own behalf. (Hear, hear.) They ?pposed such a tax, and they were propertied men, The inference might speak for itself; but he sought to represent the interests of the district, and not merely...

Scown was called to the chair, and after introducing the business of the evening, called upon the Hon. G. S. Kingston *nd Mr. H. E. Bright to address the electors. After repeating the statements which have already appeared, the following answers were given by the candidates : — The Hon. G. S. King STOH said it was althogetber impracticable to survey the Northern Territory in time. Mr. Bright, was sorry, to hear his colleague say that, as he was altogether averse to paying the money back. South Australia was pleged to be at no expense in se .tling that country. A great deal of valuable time had been lost, and the Ministry still held back. The land should he surveyed and given, and not the money. (Cheers.) He would oppose the repay ment with all his influence if re-elected. The Parliament w...

MEETISG AT SHEAOAK LOG. A meeting was held at the Sheaoik Log on Tuesday afternoon, March 24, to hear the views of the several candidates aspiring to Parlia mentary honors for the District of Light. Between 30 and 40 persons were present. Mr. Robert Johnston having been elected Chairman, explained the object of the meeting, and made the usual appeal for a fair hearing for all parties. Mr. Barrow went through the whole of his political creed, which includes his pet hobby of free selection, deferred payments, occupation, and cultivation. Upon the question of roads he said that the present Board was too cum brous, and required a radical change ; that local boards would be more beneficial, and that the maintenance would be more economically car ried out by the various District Councils through which the main lines passed. H© would not repudiate the Northern Territory kind order ho'ders' claims, but would not give any interest. Mr. Kruger said he came forward at the request of 200 or 300...

Sir — To secure as many signatures to the address of condolence regarding the attempted assassination of Prince Alfred, at Sydney, March 12, to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, as adopted, by the public meeting held in the Town Hall of Adelaide, March 16, I propose that sheets of paper be distributed to every tradesman of Adelaide and the country for the useof the employes and cus tomers. In addition, I propose that sheets and writing material be held, ready for signature at the church doors after service ; at the corners of the streets ; in the publichouses ; at the Town Hall, before the performance of the Theatre ; and other public places, until the out going mail : in order that the public of Europe be convinced of our loyalty and our regard fo the Royal family of Great Britain.

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

TO THE EDITOR. Sir — In the foot-note attached to Mr. De venish's letter of to-day's issue you say, ' If the Government refuse to survey the land (in the Northern Territory) bought and paid for, they must repay the money.' No doubt the holders of land- orders have a remedv at law against the Ministers, both separately and col lectively, that have held office since the passing of the Act. This is their responsibility, and they can be made to pay for neglect of duty like any other agent who violates the law or his instructions. But the question is, ought a Bill of indemnity to be passed to exempt Ministers from their liability, the country taking on itse f their liabilities, or should tne land-order holders be left to their remedy at law — the pur chasers being no doubt aware of the general character of our Ministers and tbeir means of meeting their liabilities, particularly as it was stated the country was not liable for anything under the Act at the time the Bill was passing ; tbe M...

THE ACCIDENT AT TWO WELLS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

THE ACCIDENT AT TWO WELLS. TO THE EDITOE. Sir — Your Two Wells correspondent's letter contains a statement likely to be prejudicial to the driver of the mail, whose leading horse knocked down the boy Preston, on Monday week. It states that ' he (the driver) never stormed to see if anvthmc ?was t.lie matter, but kepS driving on, just as if it had been a dog.' How anybody could get run over without trying for it, in such a place, and by such a convey ance, I . will not now stay to enquire, but is the lad in question did manage to get knocked down, and the driver skilfully saved him from the wheels and saw him scramble out of the dust and laugh at Mm, he saw no reason to stop. The skill of the drivers of the mail or this line is not exceeded by their sobriety and uniform gentlemanliness of conduct, and I re- '? gret that anything should have been so told - your correspondent for this township as to lead ?-'.,':' him to make any remark calculated to do an in- ?

TO THE EDITOR. . Sir — In reply to several questions by an 'Old Volunteer' respecting the Hughes Volunteer Challenge Gup, I beg to submit the following answers : — First, the cup is to be seen at the shop of Messrs. Muirhead & Co., King William-street ; but the actual possessor is, I believe, the Hon. G. S. Kingston. ' Second, it has been competed for only once (in April, 1865), and won by myself. Third — The regulations under which it was competed for were, that it should be fired for at the annual meeting of the Adelaide Rifle Association; that persons competing should life volunteers ; and that tbe successful competrtoi: ^iJ* on three occasions should become the owner.' The distances were from 200 to 900 yards inclu sive. Fourth- -I have no intention of allowing it to be shot for again, if I can prevent it. The reasons why are that the Cup was given to the Volunteer Force of 1865, that force being now defunct, and not having joined the new one, I cannot there fore compete...
