PORT VICTORIA, MAY 28. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1881
PORT VICTORIA. May 28. TheTriadeTarabochia has cleared from this port for the United Kingdom, with a cargo of 8,000 bags of wheat fcr J. Darling & Son. The vest el was delayed in loading for twelve days on account of stormy weather, notwithstanding which, however, she received her cargo within her lay days. The Flora and Sarah Bell are on their way to load wheat. I think we will require one more vessel to load for the United Kingdom this year, and after that the wheat remaining will probably find its way to Port Adelaide in ketches. — We have had some very rough weather lately, but not much rain The farmers are in good spirits. The cropB are showing above the ground very nicely. A few of our farmers are trying topdressing with guano this year, and we with them every success.— The roof is now being put on tbe new post-office which, Mr. Heath, the contractor, expects to complete in about six weeks. — A good deal ef wheat has been ooming in Curing the past fortnight.

MELROSE, MAY 27. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1881
MELROSE, Mat 27. The proverbial Queen s weather was not with us on the 24th. When holiday-seekers arose to prepare for their promised pleasure egageaients they were disappointed to find tbat the Mount was wrapped in a blanket of clouds, while rain was coming down in a steady manner as if it did not mean to leave on ior a consiaerabie time, and people began to give up all hopes of erjjoySng.the^day. Towards.ll o'clock, however, the clerk of the weather kindly had compassion on them and the rain ceased. There was then a general stampede, for the cricket oval at the Mount Eemarkable station, where by the kind permission ef Mr. J. H. Angas, the Melrose and Orroroo teams were to do their level best. There was a large attendance on the ground, pretty well all the traps in the neighborhood being brought into requisition, and a large number of members of the fair sex graced tbe scene with their presence. The oval is situated in a very pietty spot, partly surrounded by large gem trees which ...
PENFIELD, MAY 26. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1881
PENFIELD, Mat 26. We have been favored with some showers of tain, which had bees anxiously looked for by the farmers. Tilling operations are in fall swing. Feed is rather scarce. — An entertain ment, consisting of dissolving views, a spelling bee, and the original punch and judy show, was given in the council chamber here a short time seo. and, judging from the attendance, it was highly appreciated.— Out ohspel here is almost closed, there not being enough ministers to tnpply it. This place was never so badly sup plied with religious agencies as it is at the pre sent time. Twenty years ago we used to have two cervices on feonday, and one in the week, but now we get only one on Sunday and none in the week.
MAITLAND, MAY 28. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1881
MAITLAJSD, May 28. The Queen's Birthday opened gloomily. It rained early in the morning, and the weather kept threatening during the greater part ol the day. In the afternoon a football match was plajcd on the Maitland ground between the Maitland and Moonta Clubs. The game com ZBeuoed abent S o'clock, when the ball was kicked off by Gunning, captain of the Miitland team, who bad lost the toss with Moore, the Moonta captain. The wind bearing strongly toftaiSs the Maitland goal, the ball was kept in tbat half of the ground for nearly the whole of the firtt hour. After half-time the Atait lasds played an easier game. Ihe result of the match was a draw, the Mooutss having scored 12behinds against 4 by the Maitlands, and no goal being kicked by.either side. The Moonta men worked well together, obtaining thereby many 'ehortmarks,' which secured them great advantages throughout the game. The Maitlands played pluokily, but the same team never having worked together before some trusted too m...
HUNDRED OF KING, May 21. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 4 June 1881
nrrannfn nv n-rivn \T.^m The crops here and in the Hundred of Bonder are just springing above the ground, and if we get rain again in a few days this year will prove whether or not the Eastern Plains will grow wheat. — The Hundred of Sohomburgk will shortly be open for selection. There is some of the finest land in South Australia in this hun dred, and there are a great many people waiting for it to be put into the market. One of the faults of the present Land Ant is tnatthe eqaat ters are allowed to keep their stook on the iaud after it is surveyed and ready for selection. Even when the new purchaser takes possession of the land he usually finds it covered with the squatters' flocks. This, to the selector, is very annoying if he takes any stock on to the land, as he finds that the feed is all eaten down, and the consequence is that he has to buy food for his cattle and horses.

fanta ffetog. [From our Country Correspondents^ EDEN VALLEY, Mat 27. Since I wiote last weekcomplainingof the want of rain we have had many splendid showers, and last night we had for several hours a good steady downpour. Ploughing and seeding are now going on rapidly, and I think it will not now be ong before they are finished, as the rain I trust n*s gone oeep enougn not to zunaer ploughing again this season. The wheat sown is showing the benefit of the rain too, and the grass is looking beautifully green. Flowers and veget ables are also thriving in the gardens and all nature looks renovated. — I think the siokness recently prevalent among children is diminish ing, as I have heard of.no fresh cases during the past week, and in the one case of typhus fever repotted there is I believe an improvement. A cricket match between the boys attending tbe Eden Valley ana Mount Pleasant schools was played on May 24, and caused a lot of fun and excitement. The Eden Valley sohool won with eigh...

HAMMOND, Max 26. On the Queen's Birthday tbe first meeting ia connection with the recently-formed Hammond Jockey Olub took place on a coarse specially prepared by the committee for the occasion. The meeting surpassed the most sanguine expectations. It was true that there were not many good berses on the ground, this fact no doubt being chiefly owing to the unavoidably small stakes which were offered; but taking into consideration the very short notice which the public received of the meeting it was certainly a most gratifying success. ? A trooper from Melrose attended, bat for tunately bis services were not neeSed. The following are the results of the races: — Maidens — One mile.— Mr. J. Cross's Miss Pinda, aged, 1 ; Mr. M.
