SCIENTIFIC AND MECHANICAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 28 March 1868

SCIENTIFIC AND MECHANICAL. There are only two substances known which in burning give a green flame of pure character. These are barium and copper. During the month of October the excavation of the Mont Cenis Tunnel was advanced 426 feet. At the end of the month the total per- foration of the mountain trom both sides amounted to 24,908 feet, or 4.'7 miles. The work remaining to be done is about half as much as has been accomplished. The rate of progress is increasing. In ten months of the present year the work has advanced as much as in the whole of 1866. At the present rate there should be a clear passage through the Alps some time in 1870. TEST FOR ALKALIES.— A new and highly sensitive reagent for alkalies and alkaline earths has recently been discovered by Professor Bottger in the leaves of Coleus verschaffettii.

Trifles of Sit and Wisdom. The Worst Tax.— A-tax of gout. Why is a horse cleverer than a fox? — Because the horse can run when he is in a trap, and the fox can't. Old Crudgington, on being told that the Loveladys began to quarrel before the honey moon was over, remarked that their behavior only strengthened him in his opinion that matri mony was like an English summer — ' Three fine days and a thunderstorm.' A modern Amazon on her way to a conven tion asked for a seat in a crowded car. An old gentleman, with keen eyes, enquired, 'Be you one of the woman-righters ?' 'I be,' answered the undaunted heroine.

STRATHALBYN AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. The third annual Show in. connection with the above Society was held in the grounds of Robin Hood Hotel, Strathalbyn, on Thursday, March 19. The weather was fine, and as a consequence the attendance throughout the day was very large, and included, amongst others, several well-known gentlemen from Adelaide. The Show on the whole passed off very successfully, and the articles exhibited, though perhaps not up to former years in point of quantity were excellent as regarded quality. The Show was held in a large pavilion erected for the purpose, a short distance from the Robin Hood. HoteL On entering the pavilion the first article which ar rested attention was the grain, which 'was placed near the entrance. The show in this department was not very large, the competition being principally confined to -wheat, but the samples were very good, considering the de pressed state in which the agricultural interest is at present, and also the rava...

MEETING AT KAN6IANTOO. On Tuesday afternoon, March 31, Mr. Krichauff met'the electors of Onkaparinga at the Kanmantoo Hotel, for the purpose of ex plaining his political opinions ; about 30 or 40 persons were present. Mr. John Simcock in the chair. Mr. Krichauff addressed the meet ing on the land question. He was opposed to free selection before survey, as he thought that would give an opportunity for the capitalist to pick out the eyes of the country, and might cause great inconvenience by litigation, for boundaries might overlap, as in .the . Moonta case, and endless disputes would arise. He was opposed to the system of deferred payments, as it might induce the poor man to commence firming on credit, and afterwards to become insolvent, and cause loss and distress to him s ;lf and others. He would advocate a system of survey, so as to leave alternate strips unsold, aad sell the blocks in one strip, ami allow the bona fide occupier the right of _ grazing on the opposite block on the...

He would be mostly in favor of a system of national or free schools — i.c, to give the teachers about £40 to £50 a year more, and do away with the fees charged to the parents, as a great many could not atforl the money to have their children educated. He was not in favor of compulsory education ; it was un-English. He would, however, debar everybody, from serving under the Government, or from taking contracts, that could not read o...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 April 1868

TO THE EDITOB. Sir — As you state to-dayinyourleadingartic V, the bargain as to the Northern Territory was, that in paying their money the land-order holders were to receive land, and not their money back, and the Government ought there fore to have given them the land they bargained for, instead of wasting all this time, simply because a large quantity of good land could not be got at Adam Bay. IE the Goverr-ment had recollected or made enquiries they would have found that when South Australia (proper) was founded, it was understood the capital was to ba at Port Lin coln, and if the first Governor and Surveyor General (Colonel Light) had tried ever so hard, could they have found 300,000 acres of any thing like good land near that township ? Hap pily, by the time the Governor arrived, Hold fast Bay and the Adelaide plains had been dis covered, and it was an easy matter then to satisfy the holders of land-orders, albeit a long time elapsed before the most of them received possession,...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 April 1868

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I have had occasion more than once to criticise your policy on the ' Northern- Terri tory Question.' No one admires, more than I do, the force and clearness of your articles, but I must again be permitted to express my sur prise at your conclusions. The question for the press to consider, seems to me to be this, ' Pan the land be surveyed m the time ? You have not fully discussed that point, but you appear inclined to believe that in cannot be got through in five years. What position is the colony in then? Can South Australia, ask Parliament to extend the time, without first gaining the consent of the land-order holders ? Certainly not. There is a distinct contract between two parties, and neither can budge from the letter of their agreement without the consent of the other. You say the agents of the certificate holders caused delay, perhaps so ; but there are holders who gave no power to any one, appointed no agent, but simply waited for...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 April 1868

TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I did it. It is better to confess and have done with it. Being engaged on an essay wherein it was necessary to hide my want of information under the guise of something that should appear learned, arid finding Mr. Scoular's essay just suitable for my purpose, I was guilty of stealing one of his arguments, and adapting it to my requirements. Some people say that by changing fungus to pediculus capitis I made the argument look rather pedicular, but that is Mr. Scoular's fault. I only followed my leader. Having confessed my offence, let me make the amende l.y offering to Mr. Scoular a para graph from my MS., which I give nim full liberty to insert in the second edition of his essay. Here it is: — ' Every ironworker, or, in other words, every worker in ferruginous compounds, will inform us that rust, and more especially red rust, is produced by the contact or combination of iron with one of the gaseous elements of which the air (that is, the atmospheric air) is compo...
