DISTRIBUTION OF AWARDS AT THE INTERCOLONIAL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 20 March 1867

DISTRIBUTION OF AWARDS AT THE INTERCOLONIAL EXHIBITION. The ceremony of Wednesday, 13th nit., although less brilliant than that on the opening day, waa cer tainly more important. The first occasion was one of hope and promise ; the second of realisation. '.The ceremonial being one of utility; perhaps of necessity, rather than form, it was conducted without any special parade ; and, indeed, although the assemblage was picturesque enough, being largely composed of gaily attired ladies, the proceedings were uncommonly business-like and unprotected by any set speephes beyond a short address . delivered by his Excel lency the Governor. ,' A. carefully prepared plan of the business was issued and circulated for a day or two before, so that the actoxs and spectators might be fully informed with referenoe to the order of pro cedure ; which was, first, the reading, of a report upon the work undertaken by the .jurors, then, a short reply by his Excellency, and, finally, the pre sentation by t...

On Sunday the conflagration was confined to the stables, which were an .immense bluestone structure, but recently erected by the present 'proprietor; Mr Mulcahy, on a scale and with a completeness that would compare favorably with any building of the land in Mel bourne. The first warning of danger was not con veyed to the burgesses until about five o'clock ; but the tones of the bell had not rung through the streets more than a few minutes, before many of the inha bitants had been aroused and the brigade were tackling to then; work. Those who visited tho place and* waited for ''the coming of the engine and its appurtenances, Btate , that at no former ' period of the...

PROSPECTS OF THE FARMING INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 28 March 1867

PBOSPECTS OF THE FARMING INTEREST. [FEOM THE S. A.

We have evidently arrivtA] at a new eti'^o in the progress of its develop ment. Compared ?with the po pulation of the colany, the availahle exports for the cur rent year are something enormous ; hut this fact, how ever gratifying, is not of itself enough to ensure success. It must, -we think, be admitted that something more is re quired before the South Aus tralian farmer ?will find him- i self in such a prosperous condition as he could -wish.
