No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 January 1869
Irr '-concluding .:our notice of. the Real Priopity , Act of' South Australia we shail..try to sumnarise as clearly-. and as shortly as we caii, the principal features that recooiimend it for adoption. The great objects. of the Act. are to give cer tainty to title, to facilitatd. proof and to render dealings with land' simple and 'inexpensive. Those iwho have gone through the Act will`li;v see by whit iani .these two resultf, cerainty otitle and facility of dealing are sought &lt;to' be acconmplished. The first is securedo&lt;by the issue of a document called a crtificate of title, by which the person "named therein as proprietor of any landas secured in pos session against every contingency, and cannot be dispossessed. Under the general law relating to real property,. saucih a title was impossible. The evidence of title consisted of a long series of deeds showing all the changes of ownership that had taken place, and if one of these deeds happened to be mis sing the...

SUMMARY FOR THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 January 1869
MIARY FOI THlE MAILI. It is our duty not only to summarize the sayings and doings of our social community for the past month, 'but to. revert to the substance of those for ?the past year. 1868 is of the past 1869 is of the future, and we should gladly ac cept for the future year in many respects the condition of the last, but it is ordained etherwvise, and the iiost promnising dis trict of.the colony has beun saverely visi tedl, and to a ceitain extent the. whole community are more or less affected by its consequence:. It is however a. great consolation to: know that the progress of the colony, though it may not advance so rapidly in the next as in the proceeding year, based as it is upon sound principles is secured -the suspension is but temporary and in all probability consequences imme diately beneficial will be the result. POLITICAL. At this period of the past year, consi derable political excitement 'disturbed our social community, and much personal aci'imony was displayed on t...

RAILWAY RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 January 1869
RAILWAY RETURNS. Although the return of the trafflR re eeipts upon the Victorian railway for the week ended 26th November last does not contrast favourably with that for thesame week of last year, it is not the less true that throughout the month the improve meat recently so noticeable has conitinued. Last year th3 arrival of H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh raised the proceeds of the corresponding week's passenger traffic to the exceptionally high figure of £8,651 3s. 3d:; while this year they are given at £3,584, Os. 3d.-a difference of £5,067 3s. In other matters, however, the balance is slightly in favor of the present year.:. The total receipts for the week amount to £11,931 13s. 2d., against £;1,818 19s. 5d. in. the corresponding (week of lkst year; the weekly average, .&11,064 7s. 11d., against£10,326 17s. 6d.; and the aggregate receipts for the forty -seven weeks,. £520;026 12s. 2d.; com pared with £485,335 10s. 7d. up to th~ same period of 1867.

LABOUR MARKET. MELBOURNE, DECEMBER 7TH, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 January 1869
LABOUR MARKET. MELBOURnS, DECEMBER 7rrr, 1868.. During the past mixonth there has been but little change in the aspect of our labour market, save in the smaller de mand for male servants. This may be explained by the fact that the clipping season carried so many men up-country, that most localities arc just now able to supply their own wants. Haymaking is now general, however, and men disposed to that kind of work are readily engaged at 4s. to 4s. 6d; per acre, or 20s. per week, with rations. In a few days a much more brisk demand for male labour will have set in, as the harvest is im pending; dand where any special cause has drawn off the local supply, the want of men will be greatly felt. A large pro piietor in the .Lake Cooper district, for instance, writes thus, under date Decem ber 3:-"I shall commence cutting wheat on Wednesday next if. I can get hands sifficieut for binding. There is great scarcity of labour here at present all the men havin~g left for the Spring Creek diggin...

Some gentlemen at Peith have. formed themselves into an ama teur :'Darkey Troupe' and have give one Eiitertainment which is well spoken of. An Amateur Dramatic Companyhas been formed at Fromantle and isome pieces are in: courso of rehearsal. Barlow and-his per forming Dogs and Mionkies are expected to arrive daily per Emily nSmith from Adelaide.. As this will be quite a novelty, it will most probably take very well.

There has.not been so many ves sels in the harbor for a length of tithe. The want of freight so long.:felt seems likely to be supplied at least for. a length of time.

What does it mean, Minnie ? Some love story ' . " Nobody knows: She went to Nice, soon after you left home, with her mother who was in a :consumiptidn. In three months she returned, bringing:home only the dead body of Mrs. Rivers. Since then she has, live,'in a state of: gloomy apathy. She was inclined to'shut her self up entirely ; but her aun., after the year of mouring was over, insisted upon her resuming her place in society. Still, wearing heavy mouring, she - looks strangely out of place, among her old friends, for her dress is not more gloomy than her dark face. She has turned to ice." .

SCRAPS. NEW YEAR'S EVE. New Year I New Year ! come over the snow, .A thousand songs call to thee I A thousand circles wait ghee now, A thousand firesides woo thee I The night is listening for the bells, The doors are wide where the poor man dwells, The cottage glows, the mansion gleams, And dusky red o'er the deep snow streams. Old time sits mute in his silent place- They watch his motions, they mark his face, He starts, he calls, and a merry, merry din Of voices and bells bring the New Year in. Happy New Year ! Happy New Year ! Give us all things kind and dear, And when thou art laid in earth May thy death be as blythe as thy birth. Old Year I Old Year I sink down in thy vaults, All nature doth eschew thee, Lie buried with all thy meeds and faults, For nothing can renew thee. Light are the feet that dance o'er thee dead, Merry the music that rolls o'er thy head, Die with thy last loving glance on them Whose joyance is thy requiem ; Farewell, Farewell, all good or ill, That thou has...
