MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 27 September 1865
apscEix^KEotrs bhipeikg. The windfon Saturday blew hard -from the westward, increasing in the afternoon to a gale. The vessels at the jetty soon hauled off except the barque Douglas, which lying at the weather side, eouldnolbe shifted from her berth, without diffi culty nor without danger of some of her timbers being staved an through contact with the corner . of the Jetty. For some hours she chafed against the Jetty side with nmch,violence, surging against it fit tames with so much force as to shake the whole structure, nearly throwing those who were on it off their legs. The large logs used as fenders were one after .another ground into splintetb, seve ral of the massive hardwood piles of the* Jetty were broken, and the barque was damaged by the smashing of lier starboard channels and of other portions of woodwork. It ifes at length resolved to run the hazard of getting her away from the Jetty, which being happily effected without addi tional damage, sh$ swung to her anchor in saf...

THE TIP ABA. BEEF. : TO THE EDHOB OP TTng WAlLUJQG.iaatES." ! I •SmI notice in your issue of the 20th instant a statement from the Keeper of the Tipara light ship, to the effect that he observed a steamer on the night of Thursday, the 14th instant, about 9.30 p.m., in a position which he thought dan gerously close to thereof. r - v-. As the steamer, from the time indicated, could have , been no other than the Kangaroo, I beg leave to notice the said statement ; and although I feel exceedingly grateful to the Keeper for t£© evident care and anxieiy manifested "on our behalf beg to inform him and the public generaUyjEHak there 'was not the slightest cause for alarm on the . subject. - It must have been a case of optical delusion oxt the part of ,the worthy Keeper.

PORT HUGKHES TO THE EDITOS OF. THE WAXJaAEOO TIMES. Sis,—A few days ago you informed the public, | through, your columns, that an application had; been made to the government to open a" shipping I place at Port Hughes. You also argued—and I! believe sincerely—that the established convenience* at Wallaroo, and the distance-that Port Hughes is | from Moonta township, that there was very little probability of any alteration taking place. • Sow,; wherever you gleaned the news, the facte were misrepresented, and iihe premises incorrect. No ! such application was made, or even thought of. j A letter was sent to the Collector of Customs (which has since been found quite unnecessary) j for leave to land goods shipped at Adelaide at | Moonta.

THE RACE FROM GREEN'S PLAINS. TO THE EDITOB OF THE WALLAEOO TIMES. Sib}—Will you kindly permit me a small space to correct a mistake that appeared in your issue of _ the 16th. inst. It was there stated that on returning from the ploughing matcka race took between RounsevelTs and Messrs Bawden and Graham's conveyance. - It is unnecessaiy for me to mention to you the feet that it -requires two or more contending parties to constitute a race; but I can say, without fear of contradiction, that on this occasion it was quite s, one-sided afiair, as the driver of Rounsevell's conveyance did not make the slightest effort to overtake the other, nor d.6 I imagine for one moment that he entertained the remotest idea that Mr G-raham iiad an obiect in [ arriving in Xadma first.— -I am, Sir, &c., KEGTUS.
DREADFUL BOAT ACCIDENT. (Abridged from the Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 27 September 1865
DREADFUL BOAT ACCIDENT (Abridged from the Advertiser.) A melancholy boat accident, by which" fottf lives were lost, occurred off Merino on Saturday afternoon, September 24. In the morning: of that day the emigrant ship Electric , was driven close in shore, and was in imminent danger of stranding. Captain Duff, Harbor-master at Grlenelg, observing the critical position of the vessel, mustered, a gallant crew, and put'off from Grlenelg Jetty about half-past 9 o'clock. The names of the crew were T. Shepherd (cox swain), J. Burton, Richard Barber Spencer, Jno, Gard, William Biddies, and Mark Skull, and the "Argus" despatch boat was the one used upon the occasion. When they, started there was a heavy sea on, and the wind was blowing almost a gale from nearly dub west. The Electric was lying just'off the rock-bound coast, between Field's River and Merino,-a distance : of about six or .seven miles from the Bay. The boat reached the vessel after a fair run down about a quarter to 11 o'clock...

Wallaroo Cimes. WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 27 September 1865
WALLAROO: WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 27. Any stranger visiting "Wallaroo cannot but feel some surprise on seeing the quantity of earth and rubbish lying in heaps all over the township. A letter on this subject appeared in our columns last week, but before receiving that letter we had intended to make some allusion to the nuisance. In some places the depositors of ther earth spread it in long lines, as if to delude the public into the belief that they were- actuated by the desire to improve the township, by form ing raisedfootpaths, But th e nature of the earth is generally such as forms the most sticky, disagreeable mud in wet weather, and in dry materially adds to the quantity of dust already so plentiful in Wallaroo. Any person sinking a tank seems to think himself entitled to add bis quota to t&ese " improvements," and in many cases the stuff raised from tanks contains a large quantity of rock, which in pieces varying in size is spread abroad along with the earth, perhaps with the ...
