THE Chronicle and Mail. SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 1868. WHEAT RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 April 1868

THE ^Iromdieauojlail SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 18C8 WHEAT RETURNS. f The returns of the harvest which we published a fortnight ago were, as far as the South-Eastern District is concerned, only approximative. The harvest there is some weeks later than it is in the neighborhood and north of Adelaide, and as it was important to. have the returns made public as early as possible, an esti mate of the yield in the South-East was made on the data already obtained, which placed it at 12 bushels per acre. We have now the complete returns before us, from which it appears that the yield per acre, in the South-East was under estimated, while the acreage was over estimated. Instead of being 12 bushels, it is 14 bushels 36 lbs. to the acre. The following table gives the information which could not be supplied in the first tables, showing the acreage, produce, and average yield in the South-Eastern Coun ties, together with the grand totals throughout the colony for the last and the previous years : — in ...

CALIFORNIAN BREADSTU[?]ES [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 April 1868

CALIFORNTAlSr BREABRTTTFTPR Thbottghthb courtesy of Mr. J. T. Turn bull we are in possession of the San Francisco Commercial Herald of January 11, 1868, which contains an able review of the Californian harvest and wheat market for the past^year. California is a large wheat-producing State, and is therefore a rival to South Australia. There is hardly a civilised bread-eating country in the world which her cereals do not reach. Our farmers know that even in these colonies they have often to com pete with Californian enterprise. When ever our breadstuSs here pass beyond a certain price, we may be certain that merchants will look to America for sup plies. Any reliable information, then, respecting the resources and capabilities of California as a producer of breadstuns cannot fail to be interesting. We find that during the past year this State exported 519,309 barrels of flour of 200 lbs. each, equal to 51,930 tons of 2,000 lbs. ; and 4,659,285 centals of wheat, the cental being 100 lbs...

The meeting was numerously and influentially attended. The Hon. John Crozier occupied' the chair. Mr. Fisher, after repeating his political views, said, in reply to Mr. Foster, that he held rapid communication with 'Europe to be essen tial to the many as well as the few, and that the atnpunt was infinitesimal as compared to the benefits the community derived from being in a. position to know the prices of produce in the markets of the world. In answer to another question from the same gentleman with refe rence to the Northern Territory question, Mr. Fisher said he would mete out even-handed jus tice, and if he found the colony was pledged to refund the money, at whatever cost, the honor of South Australia must be upheld, and her commercial integrity maintained.
