Industrial School for the Blind, North Adelaide. LECTURE BY MB. STESNE. On Tuesday evening last a lecture was delivered in the Petersburg Insti tute Hall by Mr David Sterne, the blind instructor in reading and 'writing at the above schools/ to a fairly large audience. The chair was taken by His Worship the Mayor, who in a few appropriate words introduced the lecturer to the audience. Mr Sterne devoted the first part of his lecture to a description of the origin and working of the institution which he represented, explaining the disadvan tages under which blind persons were placed prior to the opening of the schools, and relating the numerous attempts which had been made to induce employers of labor to go to the trouble of teaching blind men and women some useful trade, all of which attempts had resulted in failure. Under these cir cumstances it seemed absolutely neces arythatan institution should be formed for the purpose of teaching the blind a trade, by which in a short time they ...

TIic iPetersborg We would remind our readers that the Petersburg Agricultural and Horti cultural Soeiety. bold their' show next Thursday in the grounds of Mr. JJ. Cochrane, kindly granted for the occas ion. There can be no two opinions as to the desirability of holding these yearly meetings ? as they are in the highest degree educational. Now that good prospects are dawning on the farmers and the whole country appears to be recovering from the fearful de pression of the last few jeans we may expect to see these country gatherings entered into with more zest and carried out with more spirit than has charac terised- them hitherto. Petersburg, from its ceutral position, is ready of access to exhibitors for many miles round and we trust that visitors too will pour in from the outlying districts. The show promises to be a success ful one as we understand there will be a large number of exhibits, many of which will be of a very superior charac ter. In previous issues we have com mented on...

Beaglehole, in the absence of the President, took the chair. There wae a fairly good attendance. The Secretary, Mr J. H. Touchell, was called upon for the annual report, He stated that owing to the lack of interest manifested nothing whatever had been done during the past year.

A RIDE TO SILVERTON. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
A BIDE TO SILVEBTOff. The *' Special Reporter" of the Terowie Enterprise thus prefaces an account of his trip to Silverton with the Ministerial party, on the occasion of the opening of the line of railway, and we reprint the same for the edification of our readers. 4&lt;The run up the line through the night was enjoyable. The first hour or two was spent in. telling stories some of them had excellent morals and were well told. Cards were also pro duced, " nap'' and cribbage" were the games indulged in. I did not play be case I had been taught in. my youth that it was naughty, and that people who enjoyed themselves in this wise would -go somewhere if they did it. I often wished I was taught not to drink whisky. It seemed so strange to debar one from playing cards, and yet creat ing a desire for whisky-the old story of the bible and the sword. Well,. I was happy. I had a novel and I bet on the players at cards. Generally the one I backed lost, so if I had played perhaps it woul...

Hurra. The anniversary in connection with the Kooringa Wesleyan Church, took place on Sunday and Monday last, [ when the Rev. E. A. Telfer, from England, preached three sermons to good congregations. The usual tea and public meeting was held on Monday last, when a first-class spread was par caken of by a large number of visitors, and the proceeds may be considered good for the times. The Mayor of Burra, Mr, F. W. Holder, M.P., was in the chair. We have been treated to two first-class lectures during the week, given by the Rev. E. A. Telfer, "The Boys of Derry,*' and " London: The City of Contrasts." Large gatherings resulted on both occasions. A rather sensational accident occurred here on Saturday afternoon last, when a pair pf horses belonging to Messrs. J. Drew and "Co., which were attached to a buggy, bolted from Mr. C. Drew's residence on Limestone Hill, and collided with the garden fence in front of Dr. Sangster's house. Neither the horses nor trap were injured but the fence w...
Correspondence. RELIGION IN STATE SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 September 1887
Correspondence. RELIGION IN STATE SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOB. SIB,-,411ow me to make a few re marks in your valuable paper in regard to religion in Government schools. As I am constantly travelling to and fro I have heard a great many complaints with reference to one of our State school teachers not many miles from Petersburg. I understand that he has been commending to his scholars various religious works, and as these scholars represent several denominations, such a course is very unfair, and contrary to the. rules of the Government service. Hoping that he who the cap fits mil I wear it, I am., etc., L. L. Petersburg, September 23. .

%\t IPJCFORSFRUR# f&mts, OBBSBOOCHBOHICU AND HOBTHEBH ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1887. CE1TRALIZ1TIOW. Supposing there really existed a man who, belonging to no particular class or party, being interested in no trade, or in ac quiring either wealth, popu larity, or self aggrandizement in any form, simply had at heart the welfare of this colony as a nation-in fact, a man who combined the patriot with the philanthropist-supposing this man on the platform of the Petersburg Railway Station any day during the past few weeks, watching the ordinary and speci^JLnp-trains conveying their hundfgcis of excursionists to the capital, we venture to say that the emotions which this sight must call up in such a man would be very conflicting. Doubtless he would be glad to think that the country farmers and others were given favorable opportunities of holiday making and of visiting the several at tractions which havelatelymade Adelaide especially interesting; doubtless he would conside...
