ORGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. STUART'S EXPLORATION. To the Editor of the Border Watch. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 26 December 1862

STtJAKT'SC EXPLOE ATIOX. To Vie Editor of. the Border Watch. I Sir,-On looki.ig' over Stuart's Inst route and comparing it with the intelii* I'gance just received about him. I think it will be found tUat the river reached by him was not the South. Alligator river, but the Adelaide. s This stream was dis covered by Captain Wickham in 183D, and empties itself into'-Clarence Sturt, near Point Hotham. It vvfls explored on that occasion for SO miles, and then be came narrow, and divided into two branches-one south and one east. The one was too narrow, for the boat oars, while the former was still n fine stream. Wnut of provisions obliged the explorers * to return. My own opinion is that the Adelaide and the Fitzroy (N.W..'coast) will yet turn out to be the most important streams. I amy sir, &c., \ 3t LIAN E. WOODsl Peoola, Dec. 23,1SG2. .

MOUNT GAMBIER SHOW. Patron :-His Excellency Sir Dominic Daly ; President:-Captain French, J.P.; Vice-President:-AV. Paltridge, Esq. The Second Show of Stock was held in South's Paddock, near the Farmers' Inn,! on Tuesday last, 23rd December. The day was all that could have been desired -a genial- breeze prevailing, which ren dered it very pleasant and enjoyable to visitors. The number of persons that visited the ground during the day was not so large as might have been expected --not more than 150 or 200 persons gain ed admission at the gate; and the number of the "gentler sex" that graced thj| ! ground with their presence was very small indeed. Amongst the elite of the neighbourhood present we noticed J. 11. Browne, Esq., and W. Ji Clarke, Esq.» I both of whom appeared to take consider able interest in the proceedings. The want of proper yards was much felt; but this will, we trust, be remedied before the next Show takes place. There was a fboth on the ground, vhich was presided ov...

Published evert/ Friday morning. FRIDAY DECEMBER 26, 1862. THE MONET MAEKET. PEOPLE often wonder at the rapid in crease in the wealth and resources of Great Britain during the present century. They naturally inquire what causes have contributedjto this increase when they compai% it with the almost stationary condition of the Kingdom during the v middle ages. To what are they to attri bute the fact that the wealth of England has increased as much in ten years of the nineteenth century as ifc^id in fifty years of the fifteenth or sixteenth? Many causes have doubtless combined to pro duce this prosperity-cauaes, some of -which it would be difficult to trace or to j define; but the chief-seems to be the' universal employment and diffusion of capital during these modern days. The Amazing prosperity which has enabled England to become theleading influential power in the world may be^Waced mainly to the impulse given to industry by the ifopmation of the Bank of England and ibther public es...
