We hare had threatening appearances of rain, and nearly every one expected a heavy downpour, bnt in each case itjbas passed off.— A memorial has been signed by twenty-eight persons, the prinoipal inbabitaiiti of tbe township, and seat to the OommifsioBer of Pnblio Works, praying that me resiaena may oe permitted to bare water for drinking purposes treat the railway tanks at the statics yard, which taaks are supplied from the Government railway dam. The memorial was «at a fortnight ago, but'np to date the department has not had the courtesy to reply, although the ease is urgent and many of the residents are positively in want of the precious element. Many of those in want of water are making every effort to help themselves by sink ing tanks to conserve water for the future.— Onr local flour mills are at pretest working eighteen hoars of the twenty-four.— The walls of the new Bohool are near...

THE NEW SOUTH WALES PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
THE NEW SOUTH WALES PAR LIAMENT. The New South Wales Parliament was pro rogued about a week ago. It was anticipated that the dispersion of the members would have been brought about sooner, but the state of public business did not allow of an earlier adjournment. Nevertheless, as far as the actual work of legislation was con cerned Parliament might have been shut upa less discussion on impracticable, inexpedient, and simply personal subjects, were added others blanker still in their resultlessness. There came an adjournment without the customary viceregal speech. Perhaps the Governor had nothing to Bay, or as he had said so much to so little purpose three months before it was easy to persuade him to let Parliament 'slide' by way of 'pro- clamation. Yet, withal, it was a pity, re garding the affair in a historical light, that the first session of the tenth Parliament of the mother colony should be ended without any display of pomp and circumstance. Had it only been to mark the broader...

ARMY ESTIMATES AND ARMY EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
ARMY ESTIMATES AND ARMY EFFICIENCY. Tee estimated cost of the English army for the current year is £16,109,600. IThis is an increase of £122,200 on last year, the increase being due in part to the South African war, and in part to enlarged expen diture on what are curiously called the 'non-effective' branches of the service. The available army which the country sup ports from the Imperial revenues numbers 133,210 men, or 1,351 more than last year, so that each efficient soldier seems to'cost the State somewhat about £120 per annum. The population of the British Isles was at last census in round numbers 32,000,000, and as at this rate the army costs 11s. per head annually for every man, woman, and child in the United Kingdom, it is clear that the nation at large has a lively and substan tial interest in seeing that it gets its money's worth— end this is just what recent expe rience and controversies seem to throw some^doubts upon its getting. In several of the little wars in which Br...
BIRTHS, DEATHS, AND MARRIAGES FOR 1880. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
BIRTHS, DEATHS, AND MARRIAGES FOR 1880. The annual report of births, deaths, and marriages registered in South Australia for the year 1880 has been published, and in it Mr. J. F. Cleland, the Registrar General,f urnishes a large amount of interest ing information. The number of births amounted to 10,262, and of these there were 5,398 males, and 4,864 females. The births last year were more numerous than in any previous yeaT. Compared with 1879, they are 360 in excess of that year. The birth rate is 38-81 per 1,000 of the population, and this is higher than in uny of the last five years. Compared with the neighbor ing colony of Victoria our advance in popu lation is very marked. The birth-rate across the border in 1869 was 37 6 ; this however, had fallen in 1879, ten years later, to 30-21. The natural growth of population with the Victorians has been steadily decreasing, and with us it has been increasing. In South Aus tralia the excess of births in the different districts over those...
OPENING LETTERS AT THE POSTOFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
OPENING LETTERS AT THE POST OFFICE. It is quite right that strict enquiry should be made by the British Parliament into the alleged tampering with letters entrusted to the Post-Oifice authorities for delivery. There is nothing which the 'average Englishman hates with a more perfect hatred than espionage, and there is no privilege of which he 1b more proud than his exemption from the operations of a snhinef nnir rt\H Iftlre* de cachet, -which he is accustomed to contemn as the un English and unmanly instruments of foreign oppression. It appears that in their anxiety to get at the root of the evils with which Ireland is afflicted, and to avert the still more threatening complications which might arise from the resuscitation of Fenian and other seditious organiza tions, the Government have resorted to powers which they undoubtedly possess, but which ought always to be exercised with the greatest precaution, and only in sea sons of proved emergency. It is a matter which concerns all of ...
MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881
MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. Thu question of marriage with a deceased wife's sister comes yearly before the British Parliament for discussion, and Australians who have contracted such marriages have a grievance of long standing. These mar riages are legalised in several colonies, but if the persons who hare contracted such unions return to Britain their marriages are null and void, and neither the wife nor the children have any right of in heritance to the property of the hus band and father. The position of such couples, too, is objectionable during lire. .foreigners wno u»u iuuub buvjii marriages would have an unchallenged status in English society, but this is not the case with Australians, though they have acted strictly withia the law of the province of which they have been residents. The husband of a. deceased wife's sister may legally marry again if he goes to England, but in that case would be liable to prosecution for bigamy should he return to this part of the w...
