OUR ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL. AND COMMERCIAL LETTEE. [From our own Correspondent.] London, April 21. Your butter-eating and butter-making reaaers. may feel interested in tbe debate on Sir John Heron- Maxwell's motion dealing with imported batter. That enormous quantities of spurious butter, manufactured from other substances than cream, are imported amd sold here as genuine butter was not denied. Animal i»t appears to be the chief ingredient used, and America, the country from which the 'oleo- margarine,' as it is called. Is brought. It is sent principally to the Continent, aud after being treated, in some further .way. there, is brought to England aod.soldas; batter. Sir J. Heron-Maxwell asked that as the commo- ' dir; was not batter in fact, it ehouia be sold under some 'other name. The Government, however, argued that this newly- invented sub stitute for butter was both wholesome and cheap, that it would be difficult to carry out any law on the subject, and, therefore, that it was be...

Unlike its predecessors the fourth day o£ the A.K.C. races waB a fine and enjoyable one from a weather point of view, and those who feared s repetition of Thursday's inclemency owing to tbe gloomy-looking clouds that hovered over the city until past noon, and on that account kept away, lost a fair afternoon's sport and mueed seeing one of the best steeplechases that has been witnessed over the Old Ciurse. As was antioinated a larce concourse of snectitorg was present, the outside enclosures being par ticularly well patronised, and presenting a genuine holiday appearance. The *' equalteator' was conspicuous by its absence, nor did we notice the 'Prussian Bank' on the ground; but canary and monkey sweeps were abun dantly represented, while the gaudily attired ready-money bookmakers, whose offers to 'back tbe field' could bs distinctly beard all over the course, were more numerous and more noisy than ever, and seemed to have their hands pretty full thr...

DREADFUL TRAGEDY AT PORT AUGUSTA. Port Augusta, May 27. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1881

DREADFUL TRAGEDY AT PORT AUUUSTA. PBy Teleeraph.1 [From our own Correspondent.! Port Augusta, May 27. A fearful tragedy was enacted here last night, when a Greek named John Marritoh fatally wounded his wife and severely wounded a man with whom she was living. It appears that the wounded man, whose name is Louis Thompson, and who deserted from the Alfred Hawley a year ago, went to PortPirie and there met Mrs. Marntch and eloped with her. They have since been liviog together here in the railway yard. Marritch some time ago heard that they were stopping together in this plase, and threatened to murder them both. Last night, about eight o'clock, he went to the teat where they were living. He found Thompson stoopiBg down at a wood-heap and immediately stabbed him from behind. The weapon struck the shoulder-blade of the man and in&ioteda fearful gash. Thompson then ran away, and Marritoh fired a shot at him, but missed. Marritch's next proceeding was to enter the tent, wbereShe st...

Honey can now be obtained on nrstrcass security at 6 per cent., and this will no doabt induce the banks to reconsider their decision against further reducing their rates en deposits. That confidence is increasing the activity of toe Bbare and loan markets proves. Had capitalists been a little bolder in their .purchases a few months ago they would be in a position at the present moment to resell at a' handsome profit, and thus could have afforded to let their mosey remain idle in the banks for another year. Like the proverbial sheep, the capitalist waits for a lead, and then when he sees what others sie doing he is apt to follow too rashly.

The colonial gentlemen, how ever, seem to be nervous and lack that spirit of enterprise which was scarcely to be expected of them. It is simply a question of vulgar money, and not much ot it either — very little I take it, oommensurately with the great results which might be attained in wine growing in the coleny. The wines ate good in themselves— those I have teen— but badly manipulated, and not well shippe d. Far body and flavor I have seen some, I think, unsurpassed by any in the worl...
