EXPLORATION OF THE INTERIOR. [Continuation of Mr. Allan McFarlane's Narrative.] [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 6 September 1858
EXPLORATION OF THE INTERIOR. [Continuation of Mr. Allan McFarlane's Narrative.] Wednesday, 23rd September.-Camped at Yerlata to-day, as two of our horses' backs were slightly swelled. Our black guide had been indulging in emu to such an extent that he could not move. To excuse himself as well as he could, he told us fifty lies about the country to the N.W., saying "maka cowie," (no water) in that direction, quite forgetting he had told us such a different story the day before. I believe that no dependance can be placed in the descriptions of a country as given by the blacks. Thursday, 24th September.-Having finished the emus, or nearly so, our friend the black had recovered his activity, and was this morning quite ready to start with us. We started at 8 o'clock ; our course was at first N. W. for the first mile and a half over a salt bush flat. For the next 8 miles we passed over some very stony bald hills. At this distance the country seemed to fall to the N.W., then over a salt bu...

Wheat is not coming forward freely, but buyers* show no disposition to tempt delivery by r.iibinff their prices, whilst the prices obtainable for flour do not warrant it.

THE HORTICULTURIST. [Newspaper Article] — The South Australian Advertiser — 7 September 1858
THE HORTICULTURIST. Holcüs Saccharatüs-Sow.-We tried this last year in rich black gully land, and also in poor sandy soil on the plains. In the former it grew nine feet high ; in the latter live feet, with a greater quantity of seed in proportion. This sand land on the plains onlv produced last year about five bushels of wheat per acre ; "but, as far as we could judge, it would have produced io or 15 bushels of holcus seed, and more than twice the quantity of material for hay, if it liad been turned to that account. " Although we now place this under the head of " Horticulture " we have no doubt, ere long, it will be claimed by the agriculturist. The seed should be distributed about nine inches apart on poor land, and 15 or l8 on very rich land. Orange Pirs.-Sow in very rich soil, in a frame covered with calico. These deserve our best attention for stocks for grafting on, as we can grow them as well here as in Sydney. Large Spanish Onions.-Any one that has planted last autumn very s...

Money OßDr.KS.-Mr. Peake has given notice of motion in reference to the establishment of a system of Post-office Money Orders in this colony. To all who are acquainted willi the universal em- ployment of this agency in England, it is need loss to say one word in its support. TVe hope that no insuperable objections will be found to lie against this scheme, which we would be glad to see embrace not only the various districts of South Australia, but Victoria also. It would, indeed, be matter of great convenience to many of the labouring classes, if arrangements could be made for the transmission of Money Orders to England. If the Ranks issued drafts for £1, there would be no occasion for the introduction of Post Office Money Orders ; but as this is not the case, we think the Government woidd do well to consult, in this particular, the circumstances of tiie humbler classes, and endeavour, either through tlie Post-office, or through the Agent General, to find an avenue for the transmissi...
