LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 December 1862

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. . THE Weatheu.-The weather during the early part of the week has been hot,' breezy,' dusty, and disagreeable. On Monday Mount Gramljier ' bore a-distant resemblance to the Desert of Sahara! if there were not pillars of sand, there were successive clouds of. dust, which, as Ring James the Firat said, in his Counterblastagainst Tobacco^" was "noysome to the eyes,", as well, as " chokinge to ye throate," and a thingnottobe desired by any man or woman anxious about a clean skin bna a clear windpipe. There vrere a few drops of rain in the early part of the week: but we could have welcomed copious showers, not merely-to lay the dust, butto swell the ripen ing'grwn.:.; Harvest will be universal in 'about a -month;^ and though' the crops look well, we are doubtful.now if the jaela will be so abundant 'as wasi. Anticipated s short time ago. Still, there'will.be agoocTbarvest,' and if there are but ihe facilities"for the ready disposal of the-produce at a fair priced the f...

AMERICA.. 'There have been several great battles .in America. The war is in favour of the North. .President Lincoln has proclaimed the , slaves of $he South fret;, but not those .. of the North. All chances of a peaceful negotiation are at an end. In England, the Right Hon. "W. E. Gladstone has spoken strongly in favour of the Confederates. The eminent scientific surgeon, Sir Benjamin Brodie, is dead. And also Sir John Inglis,the defender of Lucknow; and the veteran Admiralty official, Admi ral Dundas. There have been large English meet ings, sympathising with Garibaldi, which have been attended with riots. . The Lancashire cotton districts are in an appalling state. Two hundred and fifty thousand persons are either unem ployed, or fire working short time. The . destitution and misery frightfiil.

_ MR. M'Kkuy's JOURNAL.-This journal is now being published'by the Age. Though interesting, it adds very little to the informa tion respecting the interior which was previ ously communicated by Mr. M'Kinlay through the Qeensland journals, and which we copied some time ago. Within the tropics there are, it appears, every season, vast falls of rain which flood the country lying to the west and south of Burke's route. The floods find their way to a flat sandy country lying to the north of Lake Torrens, in which there is a vast number of lakes, most of which, however, dry up very soon after the floods cease. Then there .are large tracts without water. But it is evident that the lake district is a valuable one, and contains many resources. From Mr. M'Kinlay\account it is more thickly inhabited by natives than any other part of the continent that he has seen. IT MPOUNDJKD by E.

Published every Friday morning. The Border Watch, FRIDAY DECEMBER 19, 1862. THE SHAKING OF THE NATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

Published Mftry Friday morning. FRIDAY DECEMBER 19, 1862. THE SHAKING OF THE NATIONS. ONE of the ancient prophets, in language both beautiful and solemn, is represented as apostrophising the sword of Deity " How long will it be ere thou be quiet ? put thyself into the scabbard, rest, and be still." These words express the earnest longings of humanity after re pose-a repose which it seems as far as ever from attaining. The weary cen turies of ancient times rolled gloomily on, with the same ardent cry borne on the tempest of human strife and passion ; and the eventful days of modern times utter the same cry, and evidce the same impa tience for peace. But still the tocsin continues to sound, and, as on the morn ing of Hobenlinden, " Furious every charger neighs To join the dreadful revelry." It may seem to belie, all experience, but we regard it as an undoubted fact, that no nation loves war. The French are believed to be fond of it, but there never was a greater fallacy.
