Jacobs addressed the meeting with good efivct. The meeting was alto a success in a financial point of view, inasmuch as thoi-e was raised, including a few promises, £'2H Ss. The meeting concluded in the usual wav, and all appeared to have spent a very- pleasant afternoon. The Meadows cricketers went to Aldinga on Monday to play the return match bet n ecu them and Aldiuga, and beat them again, but only by one.

THE DARLING. Wilcannie, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

THE DARLING. [From our own Correspondent. 1 Wilcannie, April 22. The River Darling at Bourke has risen five feet, and was still rising when the down mail left. From all reports of the heavy rains and floods in New South Wales and Queensland lately, there is now Eome hopes of the Darling being once more navigable, and the stations cleared of two seasons clips of wool, which will I hope put things on rather a better foot ing than they have been lately, and enable the Banks to pay station cheques when forwarded, in place of returning them with ' No funds,' or ' liefer to drawer ' written across them, as is now the case with some of the Victorian owned station's cheques on the River, and is a matter of serious inconvenience and loss to persons in business remitting these cheques to meet their liabilities.

THE BARRIER RANGES. Wilcannia, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

THE BARRIER RANGES. [From our Menindie Correspondent.] Wileannia, April 22. The reports from the Barrier Ranges are not favorable. I have this week had some con versation with a party just returned, and who have been nearly a month prospecting in the Ranges. They sank several holes, and in one or two of them got, a speck or two, but no more. They state that tbe country presents every indication to warrant there being gold there, and if there was plenty of water no doubt but gold would be found in payable quantities, but the want of it prevented their trying the most likely places. One of the party rode a long distance to the N.W., and found the couutiy all the same description. The blacks out there are very wild, and not very friendly, or to be trusted. Nearly all of those parties who have ventured out have come back looking miserable and exhausted from privations and disappointment, and many who went out will never return to tell their tales of sufferings in that wild and lonely re...

THE CRICKET MATCH AT PORT ELLIOT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

THE CRICKET MATCH AT PORT ELLIOT. ? ?« TO TBE EDITOR OP THE SOUTHERN ABOU8. Sir — In your paper of the 27th April, I observed an article on the late cricket match at Port Elliot, and as it appears to contain statements not altogether accurate, I will just state the simple fscts. The cricketers of Encounter Bay did not visit Port Elliot for the purpose of ' winning fresh laurels,' but at the express invitation of some of the Port Elliot players to play a friendly game. And as to Pert Elliot players not playing their best it is simply nonsense, they evidently did their best ; and tbeir success was entirely due to the superior bowling of Messrs. Bebee and Addison, the style of which was new and strange to our men. We shall be able to mend on the next occasion I have no doubt; but after all their success was not bo overwhelming. The remarks in the latter part of your article are fair and just, and we bave not much fear of the result when next we meet. I am, Sir, &c, A CRICKETER ...

GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. TO TBE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN AEGDB. Sir — Could you inform me through your journal the reason of contracts being taken for work on board the Government snagboat Grappler, without specification having been furnished to the tenderers. Some time ago an advertisement appeared in the Argus for the deck work, and on application of some tenderers, the Superintendent of Works informed them that he had no specification, thus misleading them with regard to giving them information of the work to do ; so much so. that some were informed that the whole of the work was to be included in the tenders, and in accordance, tenders were sent in under the full belief .that there was to bs no day work. A great difference of tenders existed in con sequence of this information, viz., one tender £127, one £87, and one £85, (providing decks were not planed) ; and the last tender £50. Now it is evident some understanding must have existed between tho parties, for a great deal of the wor...

WRECK OF THE STEAMER SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

WKLCK OF THE STEAMER SOUTH! AUSTRALIAN. j The following detailed account of the wreck of the steamer South Australian is abridged from the Olago Dally Times: — The splendid steamer South Australian left Port Chalmers for Melbourne on Tuesday afternoon, 2ud April. The weather had re mained calm and clear here, and it was, there fore, with, great surprise, as well as deep regret, that the news of her having run ashore near Coal Point was received on Wednesday. The South Australian left her moorings about twenty minutes after 4 o'clock, and she was soon outside the heads. The evening and early night were beautifully fine, and the sea was calm. Until about half-past 7 o'clock full speed was kept up, and the South Australian slipped ahead at the rate of fully 12 knots an hour. At half-past 7, being no doubt well off Cape Saunders, until a quarter after 9, the engines were working half-speed. Then they were further slowed ; and until the steamer Btruck — which was about half-past 10 o'clo...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

MISCELLANEOUS. Gettxxg rid op Tektles. — A fanner gives his experience on this subject to a local paper, in urging others to make an effort to destroy the thistle — My farm a few years ago was dreadfully infested with tbein. 1 effected their destruction by the following plan : — I had them mown at this season of the year, i. e., just preceding the development of the flower ; this prevents the seed coining to maturity, and it is quite essential to have them cut again in the autumn, as the stem is then hollow, and by cutting off the top the rain -water passes down the tube and rots the root — thus both the seed and root are destroyed. I would recommend stubbing up the larger thistles, which are perhaps better known in agricultural phraseology as ' qurs ;' in neglect of carrying out this operation, that portion of the stem contiguous with the earth would retain its vitality, and throw out a goodly number of young branches. The knobs or buds should not be in a too far advanced state bef...

WHEAT—ITS CULTURE IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 May 1867

WHEAT— ITS CULTURE IN AMERICA. [From the American Country Gentleman 1 Wheat is the most prominent cereal which we find spoken of in ancient record. Tfae Prophet Ezckicl mentions it as being traded in in the land of Judah and Israel. We also find it spoken of in the days of Joseph in Egypt, &c. It has been cultivated from those days to the present by many nations of the globe. There are limits beyond which it may not be cultivated, as with all other cereals. What those limits are we are not fully pre pared to say, and as they have no immediate influence upon our present discussion, will be passed. The question will rather be upon its production in the wheat-growing section of the United States. From the census statistics of IS60, we learn that it is grown in 34 States, seven territories and districts ; in other words, every inhahitad I State and territory of our Union produced a j greater or less quantity of this the first of all the bread crops.
