CONDITION OF SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

aommnos of bqqtl&kd. Pirofessor Leone Levi recently read a paper xt On the Condition and Progress of Scotland in relation to EnglanS. and fee--. ~ land in population, education, wealth, taxation, crime, consumption of spirits, savings bank**, &c.' Having shown the importance of ^iRfiTigiiisTiTTigmiJiestatis ticsof the United Kingdom the facts re spectively belonging to England, Scotland, and Ireland, the difficulty in many cases of separating them, and the necessity of appreciating the ^difference in the physical condition of the three countries, the pro fessor came to thefollowing conclusions : — li ' That asiegaxds population, Scotland is increasing at a much slower pace than England, the effect rather of a lower rate of marriages and a larger emigration than of any excess of mortality over Mrths, €he rate of births being in both countries higher than the late of deaths; whilst Ireland has a _ de-. creasing population, the excess of births , over deaths being far f...

STRATHALBYN, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

STRATBALBYN, Jasttaxy 8. The weather is unusually wet and dull for this season of the year, and harvest operations are almost entirely suspended in consequence. We have had dull weather since Christmas, and during the past two or three days it has re solved itself into a sort of Scotch mist, at times falling in rather heavy showers. — A bazaar in aid of the funds of the Church of England, held in Mr. Golman's large store on Thursday last, was well attended. The room was very ^taste fully, decorated with evergreens and flowers. Tbe principal attraction, was a large Christmas tree, placed iri the centre of the room, and upon which appeared a variety of articles, useful and ornamental, to be disposed of. Around the tree -were arranged stalls, presided over by several ladies, who seemed to be very busily en gaged in disposingof their wares. TheStrathalbyn Amateur Band discoursed some most excellent music during the evening, which greatly added to the enjoyment of the visitors.— At 10 o'...

TEMPLERS, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

TEMPLERS, Jaitoaby 8. Prom the termination of^the old year to the present time the changeableness of the weather has been remarkable with its sudden transitions from heat to cold. This week we have had a dull cloudy atmosphere, with gentle showers of rain, which impede greatly the operations of the reaper with what little has to be gathered. Everything is dull enough here, very little traffic passing through. Our t-»»ti line of road is in first-class condition — Sickness is very prevalent in our neighborhood just now, hooping cough having visited several families here. — Our northern road, now completed, will bear favor able comparison with any other line near town. Not only are the gradients easy, but the work, as a whole, is very satisfactorily carried out, so that a mede of praise is due to all engaged upon it, as well as special thanks to our Road Board Commissioners.

WELLINGTON, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

WELLINGTON, Jajstjary 8. ' A piece of gross ingratitude followed by swift retribution has recently occurred here. On Monday, 6th instant, two men carrying swags reached Wellington saying they were looking for work, and had neither money nor food. Police-trooper Jones pitying their ap parently deplorable condition, gave them a good feed- and also ' some tucker to take with them. ' On the fol lowing day information reached the Police Station that one of the men had robbed the other. Police-troopers Jones and Keppler immediately started in pursuit, and after an exciting chase captured the delinquent, Alfred Thompson., planted in the scrub near liovegrove'e. ' Ii appears that both the men were camping together, and during the tem porary {absence of his mate Thompson ' nailed' the best part of his companion's swag; and 'bolted1.' The prisoner was brought to the Police Station at Wellington at 10 o'clock p.m. to-night, and will be brought before the Magis trates in the morning. — We have ...

REDBANKS, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

BEDBANKS, Januarys. The farmers this season seem to be singled out for misfortune to - an uncommon extent, what with grub and rust, and now when the harvest ought to be finished operations are en tirely suspended. We have had heavy rains these hist two nights, which not only stopped the reaper, 'but renders cleaning wheat out of doors impossible. I may say that harvest here is not half over yet, small as the yield is. I have found several instances of farmers three weeks ago quoting their average at 18 and 20 bushels on a few farms under the Barraby, but this has dwindled to from 10 to 12 bushels, and so on. Christmas and the opening of the new year passed off very quietly indeed. Every one . that could went to the beach, where I believe was a good gathering, and the pleasure-seekers enjoyed themselves rationally with a very few ex ceptions, but there always are some people who seem not to thoroughly enjoy themselves unless they indulge in a broken nose aud black eye, and I am- sure...

RIVERTON, JANUARY 9. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

IHVEKTON, January 9. Since ray last communication many of the farmers in this locality have reaped, or com menced to reap their wheat, and in most in stances have fully realised the yield anticipated. They seem satisfied that they are as well off as anv other part of the colony, and although, with but two or three exceptions, all have had some of the red rust; still,, they speak of it as of little importance in comparison with the disease in other parts of the colony. We have had considerable run for the last two days and nights, and very cold weather, - which will be a drawback to the crops, a good portion of which is cut and lying oa the ground. Some farmers were fortunate enough to finish up previous to the rain coming, and they are envied accordingly. ? .-?.'-?'??? - ?.'?-.

SADDLEWORTH, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

SADDLEWORTH, Januaby. 8. Harvest operations have been suspended for the last three days on account of the inclement state of the weather. We have been visited with a soaking rain, which has lasted the greater portion of three days and two nights, and it is likely to continue longer ; in fact it is more like midwinter than harvest. I believe the farmers are generally satisfied with their crops in this neighborhood this season, not that the, yield is abundant, but as well as the average of the colony, and perhaps a little better. I have heard of two or three very light crops, the yield being only about four bushels per acre, but these are excen tions. — The steam mill has been transferred for three years to Messrs. Palmer Brothers, who have njade great improvements in the machi nery, and are producing some very excellent flour; -better we have not seen in the colony. Indeed, we find the mill a great boon to the township and neighborhood.— Mr. Siekmann has surveyed his paddock for a ne...

STOCKPORT, JANUARY 9. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

STOCKPORTI Jantjasy 9. A sad bereavement occurred to the family of Mr. Neild Crawford, living at the Barabba Scrub . by the sudden .death of a son 13 years of age. It appears that on the afternoon of the 27th December the poor lad, accompanied by his mother, took a female friend, who had been on a visit, a part of the way home, and as they were returning the boy got out of the dray to pick a handful of wheat fiom a section along the road, the mother keeping the horse gently moving forward. In a short time the lad came up to the dray; and was getting in at the back when he fell forward into the dray, uttered three piercing screams, and became senseless. The poor mother, distracted with terror and grief, tried all the means maternal affection could suggest, but to no avail, for at her feet lay the body of her child, lifeless. She pro-' ceeded home as quickly as possible, hoping still some remnant ef life might be left, but the spirit which a short hour before had ani mated the materia...

WILLUNGA, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

WILLUNGA, Januaby 8. The weather for several days, as far as com fort goes, is all that is to be desired, but it is so unseasonable that harvest operations have been brought to a standstill I regret to say that reaping has not improved the prospects of many of our fanners ; some having tried with the machine have given it up, as they were getting nothing. Many are getting from two to five bushels per acre,' whilst very few are getting anything like a fair crop. I can safely say the agricultural interest in this district was never so depressed as at present ; this de pression was very apparent yesterday, when Mr. Cbrstorphan sold by auction the farm stock of Mr. Wakefield, of Aldinga. Ploughs and harrows were quite at a discount, the former selling at Ss. and 20s. each; and har rows *at 6s. per pair.— Mr. Wakefield iB one amongst the unfortunate lot. His crop is a com plete failure, he having only got about two bags of chicken corn, quite unfit for flour, off an 80-acre section. He i...

OQMMERCI Ali. WEEKLY EPITOME. ; lAdveriiser and Gitronicle Offices, Friday evening, January 10. General Merchandise. —The import market has been very' sluggish throughout- the week, and the sales effected have only been on a limited scale. The unseasonable and inclement weather we have had since our last report, has to some extent retarded business operations generally, and in a few departments of trade it has caused extreme dulness to prevail. Messrs. Townsend, Botting,=& Kay offered the Mauri tius sugars, ex Naiden, and- succeeded in dis posing of nearly half the cargo. The remainder will be, submitted on Tuesday next, on which 'day the same' firm will offer the cargo of new season's teas, ex Costa Rica, from Foochow.

ENGLAND. [Via Panama Mail.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

ENGLAND. [Via Panama MaiL] The Times of November 2 has the following as to the money market and business gene rally : — ' This being one of the half -yearly days for the closing of the transfer-books at the Bank of England, a holiday has been kept at the Stock Exchange. The Bank of England have given notice that, on the 3rd of December, Consols, new £5 per cents., New £3 10s. per cents., New £2 _ 10s. per cents. Annuities for terms of ye-us, and India £5 per Cents, will be transferable without the dividend due on the 5th of January next. It is estimated that the wheat importations of the first nine months of the present year have cost about £17,000,000, while they amounted in the corresponding period of last year to only £9,000,000, and in 1865 to only £6,500,000. Of the total arrivals of 24,099,309 cwt., about 41 per cent, has been supplied by Russia ; nearly 25 per cent, by Prussia ; 8 per cent, by the United States, whence during the preceding two years the ''quantities were unim...

INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. Melbourne, January 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. I From our Special Reporter.! VICTORIA. Melbourne. Januarv 8. The holidays are over, the Prince has gone, and Melbourne —I may say Victoria— has agaia| given itself up to work. There has not, how ever, bean a large amount of business done yet, although in a few articles of general consump tion some fair transactions are reported. The breadstuffs market is not so firm as it was, and transactions have been to a small extent. A parcel of 40 tons Hart's Adelaide flour was sold a day or two ago at £19 per ton for shipment to New Zealand, anl Victorian flour has been realising £15 to £15 10a., both for home con sumption and for the Sydney market, for which there are still orders coming forward. Cats are not so firm, and are dull of sale at from 3s. 6d. jbo 3s. 9d. per bushel. This, no doubt, is accounted for by the quantity of oats which have been landing from Tasmania during the past ..day or two. On the other hand, maize is very firm, 4a. 2d. being readily give...
