ADELAIDE MARINE AND FIRE ASSURANCE COMPANY. A special general meeting of the shareholders ot the Adelaide Marine aud Fire Assurance Company was held in the Exchange Arbitraiioa xoom, on Mondty afternoon, M»y 23. The Hob. \f.

She CiiAifiitAN said the business of the csm pany bad been very successful, but that was no reaBon why it should not be made still more suc cessful. So far as South Australia was concerned they could not ask for more success than they had met with in consequence of the great com petition tbe} bad to encounter. While the; were well known litre, aud no doubt was expressed with respect to their psution, there was some difficulty experienced in London on sccuuiit of their limited paid-up capital, which was not Mifiieijut to warrant them in asking large mercantile n;ms to entrust them with their business.

THE Chronicle & Mail. SATURDAY, MAT 28, 1881. THE CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
SATUEDAT, MAT 28, 1881. THE CENSUS. At last th© acting Superintendent of Census, Mr. G. S. Wright, has received all the returns of the population that was in the colony on the 3rd April of this year. Some of the returns have been forwarded by telegraph, and when the fieures are finally examined Eome trifling ^corrections may be made on one side or the other, but for all practical purposes the census is over, and the people of the province are num bered. There were more than double the number of persons in the Far North police districts that had been sapposed. It was ex pected about a thousand would be accounted for, but the collectors in those distant regions report 2,661, bringing the grand total up to 279,615, or nearly 10,000 above the official estimate of a month or two ago. The re sult of this numbering of the people cannot but be regarded as satisfactory, for the rate of increase has been good, and it is evident that South Australia presents inducements to persons in other lan...
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. In another column we give the official statistics of the wheat yield of the last harvest, in each county, with the returns of the harvest of 1879-80. With an in crease of 275,446 acres under crop last season, there was a decrease amounting to 5,654,454 bushels in the yield, and the iversge yield per acre had fallen from 9 bushels 47 lbs. to 4 bushels 58 lbs. Contrary to general supposition it appears that there was an increase of the aTea bearing wheat in the old counties, but still the quantity of land used for that purpose is small in comparison with what it was years aee. It may be safely assumed that the fields over which he stripper passed last harvest in such coun ties as Adelaide, Gawler, and Hindmarsh were the pick of the different districts, and probably a large proportion of them had been rested if not manured. About the best of our wheat lands in the old days were in the County of Adelaide, but now in that county, stretching from south of Aldinga ...
