SOUTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 January 1869

SOUTH AUSTRALIA is in good spirits at the abundant harvest and the inhabitants have thoroughly. enjoyed the Christmas holydays,. and commemorated the anniversary of the foundation of the Colony. - The harvest is expected to yield an average of 12 bushels to the acre, which •it is calculated, will be worth from £1,000,000 to £1,250,000. In the. early part of the season, fears were entertained for the safety .of the crops, as red rust made its appearance in some places, but happily the ciops have escaped anything like serious damage, and there will be a splendid harvest. It is estimated, there will be available 'for exportation from 100,000 to 125,000 tons of flour and wheat, after supplying the Wants of the colony, and. reserving seed corn for next year. During the month a new Land Bill has been passed which offers Crowh Lands to bona fidd occupers in very liberal terms. The Bill provides for the sale of land at auction allowing the purchaser the op8ion of paying ready money or obtai...

FREMANTLE AMATEUR DRAMATIC COMPANY. To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 January 1869

FREMANTLE AMATEUR DRAMATIC COMPANY. To the Editor of the Herald. SIR,   This Company gave their first performance in the Odd Fellows' Hall, on Monday 18th inst., to a crowded house. Before noticing the performers, I must give a meed of praise to Mr. R. Wilson, the artist, who painted the Proscenium and Scenery, which were all that could be desired. The Prompter too, that hard-worked individual behind the Scenes, calls for a word of praise, for the able manner in which he fulfilled his arduous duties. Great credit is also due to the Stage Manager, who designed the Scenes and Proscenium, and moreover, had the trouble of drilling those members of the Company, who had never ap peared in the front of the foot-lights before. After an overture by the Band, the curtain rose at a little after eight o'clock upon the Do mestic Drama of Tun ILARVEsT STORnM. The piece as a whole was well played, Mr. B. Wood played the character of the Bluff honest-hearted English Farmer (John Garner...

JUDGE NOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869

JUDGE NOT. Judge not, lest ye be judged again; Crush not a fallen heart : Oh ! if ye cannot soothe its pain, Add not another smart I Judge not-the world is e'er too stern To mark the sinner's shame : It were more Christian far to learn To' pity while we blame. Life may have held no subtle snare, : No dangerous wiles for thee ; Then, oh ! to censure those forbear Whose lot less bright may be. And to thyself there yet may come A weak, unguarded hour ; For who can safely say, " I am Above temptation's power ?" Judge not-there's pardon for us all ; The Lord of Mercy came, The righteous not alone to call, But sinners to reclaim. TEST of good humor.

To the Fditor of the Herald. .iE ersus 'P POLYBxus.' : SIR,.-- -- .. There appearsin ..the Perth: Gazette of the 22id instant, somethitig:intended for a reply to" my letter to you of the 22nd instant on the Signs of the Times."' I.have been anticipating a reply, and was just on the eve of writing a second letter to you on. 'Better signs of the Times.' In fact I was at tributing this general silence on the subject of my last letter to good resolutions for the better on tlie part of certain persons, for good resolu tions are generally strongest at the commence ment of a new, year. MIy eye caught sight however of "Polybius," and I amn compelled to remark on his letter. " Polybius" seems to be rather puerile in his reasoning powers. He says Pulpits are not mentioned in the sacred writings, and therefore if thererwere no pulpits, there were no carpet and our Lord could not.preach from the carpets; • Whl I mentioned pulpits and ,altars in my letter to you was, because our preachers seem t...

THE GOLD DIGGINGS. To the Editor of the Herald, [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869

THE GOLTD DIGGINGS. To the Editor of.the Herald, SIR;, I do not gve you an. analytical report of the many assays I have made of the various speci mens of so ailled gold in quartz &c., which hlave b en brought to me for analysis so much as my own deliberate decision as to them. That there is gold, is certain, but it is so infinitesimal, atpre sent, that it is really laughable to suppose it can pay for the necessary outlay in its procuring. The cost would outweigh the result, and the re sult; would prove, simply, a loss. Amongst the many specimens brought to me. I find some good "stream tin" peroxide of iron, hematite of iron, audtisome really very:fine stones of "peacock copper." I trace too, through nearly all my assays "Arscnical7 pyrites," and have found some very beautiful specs of "mundic" besides some fine cubes of " iron pyrites" but no appreciable quantity of "gold" in proportion to weight of alluvium supplied..

SUMMARY FOR THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869

8U1IARY FORI THIIE 1ILS, The~bimonthly duty of summarizing the news both in and out leaves us but little rest. In reply to the demand for 'copy,' we must obey the challenge, and put together something that we hope may prove interesting and novel, with much that is but a reiteration of whaFt has be fore appeared iii our columns. In the first place we think it impera tive on.is to try and dispel the ignorance which has for a length of time prevailed in .England with respect to all the Aus tralian Colonies, but especially that seo tion, and a very large one it is, desig nated in tihe old geogrqphy school-books, as " this unpromising colony," bat now recognised as distinct fiCrom L Melbourne or Otaheite. It has been remarked and wita too much truth, that the upper classes in England hitherto have shewn no desire to hear anything about the co lonies-the scene of experiments in the success of which they have felt no syim pathy, and the result of which has in a 'nue degree precipitated cha...

SUGGESTIVE HINTS, 'PRO' AND 'CON,' VOLUNTARYISM IN SUPPORT OF RELIGION. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR,— [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869

SUGGEST£IVE HINTS, 'PRO '. AND i CON,' VOLUNTAIRYISM IN SUPPORT OF IE LIGION. To the Editor :of The Herald. SIR, Let me if you: please say a few words that have suggested them:selves to my mind lately in conuection 'vith .voluntaiyism in. support of Religion Pro and Con. IRO VOLuNTa-TIS5M. To all those who wish liberty of conscienice to carry out their own'notions onf religious uiat ters, either by the erection of places of worship, or by the selection of pastors, to all such who by carrying their. wishes into execution-in any of the ways I have mentioned, prove' thait they alienate themselves from tihe religion of the state to these Government Aid should be most unhesitatingly denied-and..why.?

REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869

REVENUE. It is most satisfactory to us to be able to announce that the Revenue (£100,000) for the last year, after providing for the anticipated civil expenditure of the cur rent year, (£96,000) shews a surplus of £4,000. We have before animadverted upon the extravagant policy of Governor Hampton, who raised the salaries of of ficial servants from £34,000 in 1862, to £53,,00 in 1869, and that without the creation of a single new department, or even any increase in the officers of those departments. It is satisfactory to know, I that without any exception there have been annual surpluses since the founda tion-ofthe colony, and that the returns ofrevenue for the quarter ending 3Ist December 1868, from Customs, shew an increase of £20 per cent upon the receipte in the corresponding quarter of 1867 the same pro raid increase is observable in the Post Office department-the two best tests of commercial activity. At present a large sum (£12,000) is expended on the repairs of former, and th...

The harvest has now been gathered in, and with the exception of the affliictedl district, is quite if not more than an average. Looking ac t the fact, that most of the wheat crop in the Champion Bay district was on maiden ground-that there had been a larger breadth of laud under cultivation throughout the colony than. in any fornme year-that there was a large 'stock on hand from'.last year, we. fe~itstified in saying that the ex port of cereils in the. ourront .will be quite equalf"6 thalt of the last year.
