PORT LINCOLN, JANUARY 7. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
PORT LINCOLN, Jakuaby 7. The steamer Lubra arrived here on the 1st inst., being three . days behind her usual time, the cause of her detention being the late rough weather. Her arrival put a stop to our holiday, and deprived many from enjoying the regatta, which came oS on the same day. By the mail, intelligence was received of the death of Mr. Walters, late of the Bank of Australasia. On this fact becoming generally known, the various flags which were flying were lowered half-mast, as a. mark of respect for ah old and valued servant not altogether unknown in even this distant locality. — The contractor for the cuttings on the North-road is prosecuting his work vigorously, and will no doubt finish it in the prescribed time. .
MOUNT PLEASANT, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
MOUNT PLEASANT, Ja*toa*t 8. Last night we had a heavy fall of rain, and all to-day it ' has -been raining continually, which is most unusual for this time of the year. —^Christmas and New Year's Day werckept as close holidays, ' and picnics seemed to be the order of the day. About 40 ladies and gentle men, some on. horseback, some in buggits, -wended their way to a snug spot on Mr. Mel rose's run, about seven miles from the township, where they partook of dinner in the real picnic fashion. After ample iustice had been done to the good things, croquet, quoits, and dancing were taken to. On the -Thursday following there was a ball in Mr. Giles's new wheat store, which was the most successful assembly that has ever taken -place here ; it was attended byalarge number of ladies and gentlemen from town and elsewhere, who all seemed to enjoy it thoroughly. ' Schrader's ' well-known band played during the evening. The store was beautifully lighted, and flags of all nations were hung around*...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Tour correspondent who signs himself 'V.' seems very indignant at the remarks made by a ' Surveyor,' and styles his letter twaddle. What does ' V' mean when he states that ' many people seem puzzled to understand how it is that when gold and coal are found both in. New South Wales and Victoria they should be wanting in South Australia, and perhaps it is the same with 'Surveyor? The reason is that this, the western half of the continent, is of much newer formation than the eastern or New South Wales half. The upheaval of the mountain chains is due to submarine volcanic action, and the gradual unition of the large islands so formed to the Victorian portion of the continent, to the gradual rising of the land and receding of the waters from these coasts.' A true case of the kettle calling the pot black ! I wonder what Lyell would say to such remarks as these. Surely ' V.' is out of his depth. Does 'V.' deny that gold has been found in South Australia? If so, the con...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
TO THE EDETOB. Sir — I am much obliged to your correspondent 'V.' for the geological information he has given us in his very interesting letter of yester day and this morning in your columns. For the sake of his valuable information I pass over all his castigatory remarks upon myself. I know nothing on the subject of geology I confess, and geological terms, are Hebrew to me. This will account to 'V.'for the apparent strangeness of my remarks. My avocations take me into the bush a great deal, as you are well aware ; and I only brought forward the subject of our mineral resources because not only myself but practical Victorian gold-diggers entertain the opinion that gold does exist in this colony in the North. I thank 'V.' for the information I have succeeded in eliciting from him, and if he would kindly devote a brief space in your columns, with your permission, to informing me, in ungeological language, as to the indica tions of the existence of bismuth and cobalt^ it is possible I ...
DISEASES IN WHEAT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
DISEASES IN WHEAT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Sinclair's Code of Agriculture, by Sir John Sinclair, the founder of the Board of Agriculture in Britain, treats at some length of rust and other diseases of wheat, and perhaps you will think the following extracts from that work, and from ' Low's Practical Agriculture,' of in terest at the present time : — 'Causes of Rust. — A too frequent repetition of so exhausting a crop as wheat, more espe cially on weak soils, when accompanied by much manure, or the crop meeting with a check in its progress to maturity, and in that weakened state being exposed to heavy rams or variable weather. If, then, the month of July is ac companied /#? warmth and moisture, or even the beginnf. ig of August, the plants of wheat in their weakened state will be attacked by those fungi, to the propagation of which that descrip tion of weather is so favorable, more especially in places where a free circulation of air ig want ing. Extracts from Low's Practical Agricultur...
OUR MINERAL RESOURCES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
OUR MINERAL RESOURCES. . TO THE EDITOE. Sir — I solicit space for a few remarks on the mineral wealth of the colony, which are called for by the strange letter of your correspondent ' Surveyor.' To sum up this singular production, ' Sur veyor's ' ideas seem to be — That he believes in the existence of many undiscovered mineral deposits in the northern part of the colony, such as copper, iron, silver, lead, gold, &c. He also thinks there is coal to be found, and bases bis belief on geological grounds ; and that a geologist appointed by Government should at once be dispatched to discover these hidden stores of wealth. He also gives what, under the circumstances, is very useful and necessary advice, viz., not to be daunted by failure, but to go on searching in spite of it, to use his own words. Now with regard to the existence of the valu able mineral deposits there is not a doubt, and 'Surveyor' may rest assured that there are not so many unbelievers as he seems inclined to th...
KAPUNDA, JANUARY 10. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
. KAPU3SI)A, Januaky 10. -I have not often had greater pleasure in corresponding with you than I how feel in chronicling a mark of public appreciation paid to a gentleman whose amiable disposition and courteous, manner has won for him the esteem of : his fellow-townsmen. Last evening about twenty-four of the many friends of Mr. Hine gave him a complimentary dinner at the Lord Palmerston HoteL Mr. John Small occupied the chair, supported on the right by Mr. Fotheringham and the guest of the evening, and on tiie left by Mr. W.

KANGARILLA, JANUARY 6. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
EANGARILL A, Janttaby 6. ? I have been looking carefully through the Ckrorvfcle for an account of the picnic at Cla rendon, but not seeing it. I will tell you what took jplace. On 24ew Tear's Day a grand festival was goi up by the Temperance Society, which was held on the banks of the Onkaparinga, just above the bridge. As early as 10 o'clock, vehicles came pouring in from all directions, not excepting several from Adelaide, as the occasion presented an excellent opportunity to pay a visit to the township of Clarendon, and view its splendid and romantic scenery, with its deep ravines and natural craggy precipices, and there being a good metalled road the whole of the way any ordinary horse can easily reach it in about 24 hours from town. At about midday the Ban-I of Hone assembled and marched through the township under the direction of the officers of the Total Abstinence Society, carrying banners with various teetotal devices, euch as ' strong drink: is raging,' ' wine is a mocker,...
HACKHAM, JANUARY 9. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
HACKHAM, JAiniABy 9. Everything about here and the neighborhood is at an uncommonly low ebb, and when the tide will take' the turn for better times it is difficult to foretell. Farmers have been discharging both long and temporarily employed hands, so that a great many are now out of work,. and what mav be the consequences is easier understood than .described. Tne times press very hard npon men with numerous families of young children, and it is vexatious: to see the even present miseries some have to endure.— The gardens have suf fered, particularly .the apple and orange trees. The viues augur well for a goodly -yield. ? The weather has been cold and humid, -with a few good shovrers — a thing almost unprecedented at this time of the year. — The alterations in the OhronMe and. Mail seem to give great satisfac tion,— -The average yield of wheat wUl be v«y much; below the expectations of the most ex perienced;' and the crops are fetching low prices.

There jwere. various- readings,- and recitations, interspersed with vocal and instru mental music, which' appeared to amuse and interest a very large and respectable audience. The genial interest taken in these entertain ments, by the lady contribuios deseive recog nition', but to particularise individual per formers would, not be commett faiti, where all have done their best to promote the primary object of literary institutes. The concluding compliments were gracefully moved by the President (the Bev. N. J. Honfe), seconded by Mr. Peter Wilson, and carried with enthu siasm.
KOORINGA, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
KOORiNGA, January 8. Notwithstanding the depressed state of business generally in the Burra in consequence of the narrow limits to which mining operations are now confined. The entertainments and festivities appropriate- to the season- were not neglected, which is, no doubt, to be attributed to the energetic action taken by the Government in the matter of railway communication to this place, which has caused many of the inhabitants to cherish the hope that a better future is in prospect. — As an illustration of the benevolent feeling and regard for the poorer members of society in this locality, I may mention that a gentleman connected . with the squatting interest .generously furnished 25 fat sheep, which, with other necessaries and delicacies supplied by various subscribers, were the means of providing a .comfortable meal to many whose means wouldhave been totallyinadequatetopro- cure such a treat. Fifty-five families, numbering' over 409 souls, were the recipients of this hos pit...
