SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The South Australians have succeded in achieving the best constitutional measure for themselves compared with the other colonies. Both chambers are elective; their civil list only amounts to 13,SOOi., and the retiring allowances for four officials are extremely moderate, and aro in the aggregate 1375Z. Re sponsible government has thus been secured at a small cost, They are not encumbered with a burdensome ecclesiastical charge, their municipal and district councils confer local self-government and the distribution of members for the supreme legislature is to be based on population alone. The colonists have always been energetic and self-reliant ; their agricultural statistics, urban im provements, and port facilities bespeak a people prosperous and progressive. They are constantly receiving accessions of numer ical strength, and in every respect have far outstripped this colony, on which at the outset they were dependent for live stock, manu-' factures, and even bre...

Tales and Sketches. THE KIDDY-SWELL. CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856

€n Im nnit &ktk§t8. THE KIDDY-SWELL. Chapter II. . The kiddy-swell looked all round the table, when they ?were fairly seated. There was no jolly-faced old gentle man at. the foot — no sirloin of beef ; there was only the somewhat sharp visage of Miss Jane, and. a couple of rabbits. It was with feelings of considerable disgust he felt he was a false prophet, and the house was an impostor. The soup had been made on strickly homoeopathic prin ciples with regard to the mutton supposed to be used in its composition ; the rabbits were tough, and an immense leg of mutton, which succeeded the soup, was very much under done. The kiddy-swell almost repented having v lifted the ladies out of the ditch ; but comforted himself with the anticipation ef the fine old port, in which he felt sure he .could not be mistaken ; and with that he was resolved to make up for all other deficiencies. On the strength of this anticipation, he exerted his powers of facination more unreservedly than ever....

Select Poetry. "WE'LL ALL MEET AGAIN IN THE MORNING." [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856

I'tltrt ^nrfri]. 'WE'LL ALL MEET AGAIN IN THE MORNING.' V ' ur II. CLAY PBEUSS. [' It was a beautiful exclamation of a dying child as tlie red rays of tho . -sunset streamed on him through tho window, ' Good bye, Papa ! good bye! Mamma lias come for mo to-night — don't cry Papa,' ' We'll meet again'in. the morning!' And the heart of the father grew lighter under its burden \ ? for something assured him that his little an (jel had gone to tho bosom of ?him who said, ' Suffer little children to come unto me for such is the ICing ?dom of Heaven.''

SPEED THE PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856

SPEED THE PLOUGH. . , : . (From the Argus, January 31.) Whatever may be the duties of Government in fostering and ' promoting the interests of agriculture, and however practicable may be the measures which suggest themselves as most likely to be instrumental in furthering that object, there are other means by which agriculturists may themselves contribute towards improv ing their position, and establishing a closer intimacy with national concerns. ?When that transition state, of which we hear so much, and the prolongation of which, by an unlimited license of speech amongst our legislators, we have all so much occasion to deplore, shall hav - passed away, and when the era of practical business shall com mence, we may expect that the interest we consider to have been grievously neglected will have its due recognition by Govt., and become incorporated amongst its adminis rati ve departments. Abiding the advent of such a desirable period, however, there is no reason why the co-operation...

The Colonial Press. ELECTIONEERING DELUSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856

- €'ljt Ciiliiuiul pt em. r ELECTIONEERING DELUSIONS. . ... (From, the Empire, Jan. 31.) A good cause does not stand in need of deluding its friends o its enemies ; least of all, of the laborious delusions attempted .upon more than one constituency of late. .It is not worth while to. notice, further than as to one particular rthe assertion that the Constitution Bill was ' a bill opposed by all those orators of the day who were anxious of catching the votes of the colony', — the large number, if not the large majority, of JVlr. Plunkett's supporters, who were themselves opposed to the jbill must have renegaded to some effect when they can now coun tenance this assertion. 'The sentiments' of the same candidate 'expressed on the passing of the bill would, if referred to, show that he never con sidered it faultless or beyond amendment.' But he was never charged, we presume, with being a party to the passing of a fault less bill. The charge is that he and his colleagues attempted to igiv...

Assistance was obtained and it was taken from him ; then he took a pocket knife and swore what he would do to any person that came near him ; eventually it was taken from him,...
