EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. "WE expected ample details of English and American news, in amplification of the telegram intelligence which appears ou our back page. But the details in the Adelaide papers add very little to the information contained in our news by telegram. Her Majesty had returned from her continental tour: there had been severe galea in the English Channel, with much damage to shipping; Gari baldi's health was very precarious.; and the war in America continues with un abated vigour but with varying success. PsjviiiHGHB COLONIAL PARLIAMENTS. Our readers will recollect that Mr Dill, the responsible publisher of the Argus, was com mitted to the custody of the Serjeant-at-arms under the warrant of Mr. Speaker by order of the Victorian Assembly, for an alleged violation of the privileges of Parliament. Mi Dill brought {in action against the Speaker ; and we now find it stated that in the celebrated case of Dill v. the Speaker, it has been de cided in the Supreme Court in favor...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CHILDREN'S BOOKS.-In these modern days " Children's Books" form no unimportant branch of literature. Their illustration gives employment in London to able artis.8 and dextrous writers. A very creditable colonial effort in this line has been made in Adelaide. We quote the following from an Adelaide con temporary :- "Who Killed Cockatoo?" Under this title Mr. Cawthorne brings before the world another little work. Like his for mer productions it is essentially Australian, but it is intended only for the nursery, and has the laudable object of accustoming colonial children to the names of native animals. Thus, the laughing jackass, the wild'dog, and the maw pawk are substituted in his nursery rhymes for the cock robin, the fox, and the cuckoo. The design is good, and is by no means badly carried out. Tlie book is illustrated by nu merous woodcuts, representing various birds, beasts, and reptiles of Australia. These are at least equal to the average of such embellish ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. OUR LITERARY INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the Border Watch. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. OUR LITERARY INSTITUTE. To the Editor of the Border Watch. Sir,-Permit me to enquire through the medium of your valuable journal whether the monthly Lectures are to be continued iu con nection with our Institute, or whether the u lecturing talent" of The Mount is, to use a vulgarism, Housed up." Let it not be said that we lack the fitting material for the con tinuance of these Lectures. Are the Com mittee exerting themselves to secure the ser vices of gentlemen-many of whom I could name, did it not appear fulsome-who are able and, I doubt not, would be willing to come forward to deliver Lectures for the benefit of those who take an interest in such matters? Let me hope that the zeal of the Committee is not flagging-that they will exert them selves to secure an infusion of fresh literary blood into the Institute, and fulfil the trust confided in them by the members of that useful institution.

PORT MACDONNELL. December 15th, 1862. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

PORT MACDONNELL, December 15th, 1862. (From our own correspondent.) "We have been so very quiet of late; it ig almost impossible to discover any news. Business seems generally to be improv ing, although the storekeepers and pub licans keep continually Complaining. The Government Buildings and School House are being proceeded with as fast ".as possible- The roads are going on very satisfactorily, and every body appears to have their time completely occupied. The only interruption we have had in; our usual daily routine of affairs, was the presentation (on Wednesday evening last in presence of a numerous company) of a handsomely mounted gig whip, to Mr. James. Floyd, who has been for some length of time in the employment of Captain French. The whip was pre-^ sented by his fellow-workmen in the same employ, accompanied by a suitable ad dress, marking the regard they had for his manly, sober, and upright qualities. Mr. Floyd returned thanks in a very appro priate manner, and appeared to...

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

GENERAL NEWS. SYSTEMATIC IMMIGRATION.-In the Parliament of Victoria Mr. O'Shanassy has stated that it was the intention of the Government immediately to "bring in a bill embodying a comprehensive scheme for the promotion of immigration. REVENUE OF VICTORIA.-In Victoria they have a credit balance of £56,058 with which to begin the year 18G3. The Government took no credit for this re sult, the^ increased revenue having been derived from the sales of land. PI,EUI?O-PNEUMONIA. - The Border country of South Australia and Victoria has been stated to be entirely free from pleuro pneumonia, and there never has been a case reported in it. If our stock holders had the privilege of shipping cattle to Kew Zealand and Tasmania the benefits we would derive would be incal culable. It would give our district an impetus more solid and more preferable than a " rush" to our gold-fields. Gipps Land is now reaping immense benefits from being declared free from the dreaded disease.-W, Examiner. THE SCAB ...

YANKEE ADDAMS. To the Editor of the Border Watch. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

YANKEE ADDAMS. To the Editor of the Border Watch. Sir-In common with many persons, who were misled by a puffing notice in that-old woman's paper, the " Portland Guardian," I went to hear the so-called u Yankee Addams," on Tuesday night last, at Long's Room. Now, I like good singing and good acting: and I am informed that the more intellectual people of The Mount highly appreciated that accom plished man, Mr. Slack, when he was here. But 14 Yankee Addams " is a very different ?ort of man-I kalkulate! To myself and acquaintances he appeared a professional humbug, who tries to obtain money under false pretences. His singing and his acting are consider-ably below par; and the effect of his vulgar exhibition may be, hereafter, to prevent a really superior man from obtaining an audience. C. HARDING.

THE VISIT OF HIS EXCELLENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

TI1E VISIT OF HIS EXCELLENCY. "WE announced last week, on the faith of I a telegram which had been received by J. C. Lyon, Esq., S.M., that His Excel lency was slightly indisposed, and that it was probable that hifc promised visitto the Mount Gambier district would be deferred. During the week another tele gram has been received, confirming the previous one, and rendering it certain that Sir Dominic Daly will not bo able to | visit us during the approaching festive season. To make soinc compensation, however, for this disappointment, His Excellency has sent au assurance, that if nothing unforeseen intervenes, he will most positively pay this district a visit, after the New Year, in the month of January next. From this it wilVappear that there is a strong wish on the part of His Excellency to see this district, and judge for Himself as to its capabilities' and requirements. #

THE RESOURCES OF MOUNT GAMBIER. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 19 December 1862

r . THE RESOURCES OF MOUNT 1 , GAMBIEE, resources of the fertile district, of wbieh Mount Gambier is the centre, now attract regular attention and comment from the more influential of our Austra lian contemporaries. Thus, for instance, the. Melbourne " Economist," a very superior periodical,devoted to agricultural, horticultural, and pastoral subjects gives us its opinion on the cultivation of the vine in this district. It says:-" The "Border "Watch" of the 21st ult., in an article "On the resources of Mount Gambier," says the " Vine is out of the question, for the temperature is wayward and fickle." It is very probable that the whole of the southern coast from Mount Gambier to Cape Horn is too much ex posed to the southerly ocean to produce wines like Claret or Burgundy. There' are however some kinds; of wine" which do) not require the grapes to be highly ma tured for the production, of first-rate wines of their'class--Champagne, most of the Rhenish wines ancLMoselle are all the j ...

To the Editor of the Border Watch. Dear Sir,-Upon having an. advertisement handed to me for insertion in your paper this morning, as your agent, I was told that some unprincipled person had circulated a report that I charged five shillings over and above your own charge for doing so. This I of course denied, as I never asked nor took any remuneration whatever for any business in connection with your paper, except from yourself. I have written these few lines in the hope that the party in question may have the honesty to come forward and' state any case which he knows of my having done so. I am, Dear Sir, &c., &c., T, H.

To the Editor of the Border Watch. . send you another ex tract or two regarding some of the diseases of wheat, leaving your agricultural readers to judge i for themselves as to how far the assigned cause of such diseases is applicable to this I country: . Stephens in his Book of the Farm, saysAa regards the attacks on wheat by parasitical fungi, Mr. Sidney defines a fugus to be a cellular flowerless plant, deriving its "'nutriment "by means of spawn. It lives in air,-and is propagated by apores, which are naked, or by spiridia, so called when enclosed in little vesicles. The way in which these spores germinate, generally" speaking, is by a protrusion of the itmeft- membrane, or an elongation of the outer, thus lengthening out its spawn, which is the usual mode. Fungi may be Baid to consist of a mass of little cells, or little threads, or of both combined in various ways. ; They have no fructification except: their spires or sporidia, of whic...
