THE LATEST CONCERNING GARDINER. (From the Albury Banner, Nov. 29.) [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 2 January 1863
! THE LATEST CONCERNING I GARDINER " (From the Aibury Banner, Nov. 29.) THE following jve believe to be the latest "hews extant regarding the ever ubiquit ous and never to be captured Prank Gar diner: I heard ft good siory yesterday, m which Gardiner's name played a potential part. A reporter of the press was at Muswell brook lately, on his way to or from the Scone Quarter Sessions, when he happened to put up at an inn which was frequented by some .fellows much addicted to practi cal joking. They introduced themselves to Mr. Reporter, who had been in the army, it appears ; and observing that he was a very excitable man, they resolved to have-their joke with him, whatever the result. , Accordingly, they introduced the subject of Gardiner's late exploits ; and after they had sufficiently excited the | reporter's organ of wonder whispered to. him very mysteriously that Gardiner was now in the neighbourhood of Muswell bropk, and they could give; an introduc tion to him. Dazzled at-.the ...

A GRUMBLER'S LETTER. 2e> the Editor of the Border Watch. Dear Sir,-I hear that three of the great luminaries of Adelaide arc on their way to visit us. Might we not get them to promise to do something for us while they are upon the spot. You know " a bird in the hand is worth two . in the bush." While we have them let us make them sensi'- le of our wants. A venerable laird in a northern cotch county, in his parting blessing to his hopeful son, ad vised him to be aye seekin', ayetak takin', and to keep a' lie could." Might we not take the canny Scotchman's advice? Might we not seek, and tak\ and (excuse my irreverence) might we not raise a band of volunteers who would fill our Court House, and to occupy these three worthy gentlemen for s'x or eight hours in the position occnpicd by a Mount Gaml ier jury on a recant occasion. Iventure to fay we would then have justice done us ou this score. remain, yours, J. O. J3. j Mount Gambier, January ], 1863.

COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Border Watch Office, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 2 January 1863
Border Wutcli Office Thursday Evening. During the past month the Adelaide farmers have been very busily employed reaping, and they are still engaged in getting off tho crops, and will be BO for a month to come.. Labour is very scarce, and, irt consequence, the deliverigs of .wheat this month have been much smaller than usual. The harvest is, on the whole very good, more especially on the Plains, and the average per acre will, no doubt, be &lt;*pnsiderably above what it was last season. . WHEAT.-There has been a good de mand for forward delivery, and stiles have taken place at 4s. 4d. to 4a. 6d. per bushel, which is about the present figure. GPIour is hardly so much enquired for as wheat, but one or two sales have been effected at prices varying from £10 10s. to £1110s. for silk-dressed according to brand. Bran continues scarce, owing to the mills not being yet in full'work again. It has been sold at ls.2£d. to Is. 3d. per "bushel. OATS AND BAELET.-There has been but little d...
THE RENT OF RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 9 January 1863
THE BENT OP BUNS. It is much to be regretted that no member has had the courage to ask the Minister of Lands for the instructions to the-District officers appointed to value the runs. We trust this may still be done. . It would also be of importance to ascertain who the men are upon whose reports the Land Board have relied in fixing the rent of the public property. According to a current report nearly the whole affair has been office work, and it is alleged that two or three men at their desks have, almost according to their mere caprice, fixed the value of property, of which they can know very little. One of these bureaucrats is Mr. Skene, a sur veyor, the same gentleman, we presume, who, a few years ago, under some extra ordinary inspiration, alleged that there were only three million acres of agricul tural laud unsold in the .colony. This gentleman, who is said to be Mr. Duffy's great authority, must have very materially changed his mind, for he has now dis covered areas of land ...
UNFAVOUEABLE NEWS OF GARIBALDI. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 9 January 1863
UNFAVOUEABLE NEWS OF GARIBALDI. "We are grieved to say that the news're garding Garibaldi's health is very far from satisfactory or encouraging. Various accounts concur in affirming that the ball is positively still in the \^ound, and that the condition of the patient is not such as to allow of any operation being performed for the purpose of extraction. Garibaldi haa been looking much paler, thinner and weaker of late, it is affirmed, than even the least sanguine of bis friends, expected ; and altogether is would be useless to deny that the optimist views of a week or two back no longer prevail, and that public opinion in Italy is seriously alarmed for the wounded hero. His restoration to health is still considered very doubtful". His countenance is calm and cheerful, but the.beholders fancy they can descry an undercurrent of settled melancholy under that well-affected serenity. His two sons and his brother are still with him ; like wise Basso, his secretary, bis three doctors, and...

ORIGINAL 60HRESP0WDENCE. To the Editor of the-Border Watck. Mr. Editor, dear Sir,-In your report of the anniversary meeting of the Presbyterian Church, held on Monday, 29th ult., I beg to offer a few remarks as to the truthfulness of it, especially as concerning myself. In your re-' port you say that Mr. VJohn Livingston ih eery concise terms, seconded the motion (that made by Mr. John Mcintosh) and "Mr. Adams followed in a similar strain of remark." Pray what remark ? did [ also in very concise terms second the motion? or what am I to understand by the remark? No doubt it is good policy on your part to give prominence to men of note, in all that they say or do, whether it be small or great; but it would be come far better the reporter of any meeting, to vive a plain statement of facts, and let the reading portion of the public who may be in terested in the proceedings of the evening judge for themselves, whether or not the reso lutions proposed are worth anything. No doubt, Sir, yo...
