THE STORY OF A BONNET. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
THE STORY OP & BONNET. TO THE EDITOE. Sir-^There . being different sorts of justice dispensed in different Court Houses, I beg to give a case in point that occurred in the 3Jocal Court here this day to 'myself. . ' On the 19th October a 'bonnet was sent -to my house to see if my wife would like it, but not -suiting, it was returned inthe course of two hours, in .uie same condition -as received, witn a message to that effect, and the storekeeper told the boy to put it down, as somebody else would buy it On the 25th October the bonnet was sent back to me, the lad saying it had been booked to me and I must pay for it, which I decidedly objected to, as I did not want it, and therefore would not keep it nor pay for it. On the 8th. November, to my astonishment, a summons was left at my house for value of bonnet, 35s., and the case was heard before a Full Coxrt of Jurisdiction (the Full Court, by the-bye, i»eing the Stipendiary Magistrate), who compelled me to pay the full amount w...

It is no unusual thing to see the police galloping. a31 over the country, looking for a Magistrate to try some case of perhapB' several days' standing. .Situated as ire are on the border of the province, our business men are often victimised by persons who are in debted to them, for while one is looking for a J.P. to sign the warrant the debtor quietly walks into Victoria, and openly puts the law at defiance.

THE DARLING. [From the Correspondent of the Southern Argus.] Wilcannia, December 23. The Mount Murchison Station is, I regret to say, about to change hands, having been pur chased by Messrs. James Wilson and Crison (subject to approval), for the sum of £50 000. possession to be taken on- the 17th Januaryj 1868. The present owner, Ross F.

SOUTH-EASTERN DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868
SOUTH-EASTERN DISTRICT. [From the Border Watch. I The late stormy weather has knocked the crops a good deal about, and in some instances Las done much damage. The earlier and heavier crops have been laid, and many who reckoned on taking off their crops with a .trip per will have .to resort to hand-reaping or leave a great deal of wheat on the ground. The late crops will be benefited by the rain, should it not develop the rust, which it is feared it may do. Just before the rough weather set in on Fri day last reaping was becoming pretty general, but the inclement weather since then has almost brought it to a standstill. The early wheat promises to turn out a splendid sample of wheat. What escaped the frost shows a fine well-filled head and plump grain. The probable yield of the district is still the subject of as conflicting opinions as ever, and there is little question the range between the worst crops and the best will be very great. The worst may turn out five bushels to the acre...

CLARE, Jaotaky 8. On Sunday, the. 5th inst., a serious accident occurred to a daughter of Mr. James Duggan, farmer, of Spring Gully, near Sevenliills. It appears that she caught a horse and put the bridle on, and then mounted witaout a saddle. The horse commenced playing up, and threw her with great violence on a wire fence. Some one passing by picked her up and conreyed her to Sevenhttls, where she has been lying ever since in a very- precarious state. — We have had two days' rain, and the weather has been very cold, so much so. that a top-coat was quite necessary. — I have not seen our township so dull for some time as it has been since the new year set in, but the farmers have commenced bringing in their wheat, and I expect -that will make & little more stir. I still hear of crops turning out very well in this. neighborhood, : some farmers reaping as much as .25 bushels to the acre, and a good sample.

Value of Colonial Secubities. — If the compiler of the list of the debts due from the British colonies severally, intended, by con trasting them with the t indebtedness of the States in Europe, to show the superior value of . the Colonial Government securities, it. is clear that he has omited to refer-to some points which obviously require to be taken, into con sideration. The Australian colonies are to be regarded as separate and independent States or Republics in which, universal suffrage prevails,' and many political question** are decided by the wisdom of the majority. The gold-finders col Ject about £6,000,000 yearly, and if they in vested their wealth in the colony, and became permanent residents arid taxpayers, these colo nies would rapidly become rich, and their bonds would be sound securities. .
