CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

CATJTTORNTA. Messrs. Alsop .& Co.'s market review, dated San Francisco, November 9, is as follows : — 'Owing to a variety of causes, this breadstuffs market has for a fortnight past been somewhat unsettled ; the main difficulty, however, is the want of available tonnage suited to the grain carrying trade of the Atlantic. At the date of our previous issue, and at the dose of October, the price of wheat with us was $2.60 ; at Liver pool, 16s. 3d. per cental^ at New York, same day, wheat per bushel was quoted $3.25. From that time on, the price of wheat with us has vibrated from $2.60 down to $2.50, while at Liverpool our latest quotation, November 6, reports the rate at 15s. 6d., and the New York market quite steady at the price above named. Shipments of flour and wheat still continue to go forward to New York upon a liberal scale, while there is no apparent cessation in the Liverpool curren't, limited cnly by the lack of tonnage. Store accumulations of wheat are now considera...

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

DISEASES OF WHEAT. The Commission appointed to investi gate the causes of rust, and other diseases in wheat, are taking very active steps to push this most important enquiry. Be lieving that practice is better than theory, they are applying— -in the first place — fo farmers throughout the province for the results of their observation and experience on the subject. Schedules of questions have be«n prepared, and are now being sent out, in large numbers, in every direc tion. The replies to the I queries sub mitted will elicit a mass of ^valuable infor mation, which the Commission will not fail to turn to good account.. There is plenty of knowledge and. information on the subject ; all that is wanted is, to col lect it ; to classify it ; and to reducegit to something like a system. We hope the farmers of the colony, for the sake of their own class, and themselves, will take a little trouble to supply, in the best way they can, the particulars desired. Un doubtedly much valuable informat...

FLAX CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

FLAX CULTIVATION. It has often been a source of complaint that South Australian farmers should be so largely dependent as they are upon one single crop, namely, wheat. When the vast number of persons engaged in agriculture is borne in mind, and when it is also recollected to how great an extent any disaster overtaking them re acts upon trade and commerce, and upon every industrial . interest in the colony, it makes one all the more de sirous to discover something really growable and exportable to give wheat producers a second string to their bow. Many fancy schemes have been pro pounded. Ithas been advised to plant mul berry treesandhatchsilkworms ; ithasbeen strongly recommended to grow sweet peas and lavender, and distil perfumes. But however interesting it might be to watch the metamorphoses of the silkworm grub, and to walk — -like Byron and Haidee^ — in a garden of roses, we fear that it will be a long while before the cultivators of the soil achieve a firm, and independent pos...

THE Chronicle and Mail. SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1868. THE DISEASES OF CEREALS COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

THE ^SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1868. THE DISEASES OF CEREALS COMMISSION. There appears to be some misunder standing as to the duties and powers of the Diseases in Cereals Commission. We perceive that a meeting of farmers is con vened at Freeling- to consider what steps should be taken for the relief of farmers suffering through the calamity of red rust, and the members of the Commission above mentioned are invited to attend. It has also been said that the Govern ment will take no action tin reference to the relief of distressed agriculturists until the Commissioners have brought up {heir report. This last statement must, how* ver, be inaccurate, for the Govern ment stb bound to know what are the instructions they have issued to the Commissioners, what is the scope of their duties, and what are the powers and authorities with which they are clothed. Now we are in a position to prove incontestably that the Commissioners have no power whatever, either to enquire into the dis tresses of the...

AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. We have received from Mr. Josiah Boothby copies of the forms to be em ployed in the collection of the agricul tural statistics for, the present year; also instructions to the collectois, -fcc. It would be a waste of type to reproduce these documents, as they will be distri buted by the Government throughout the colony. We mayy Ttowevor, say that they bear the evidence of careful pre paration-, and we note the presence of special instructions relative to red rust and other cereal diseases. We cannot get too much information on this subject; although information on this subject, as on any. other, must be presented in a systematised and intelligible form to be of any service. As Captain Cuttle said, 'the bearings, of these observations lays in the application of them,' and so we say with regard to Government statistics. However, that is the business of the Go vernment ; as regards the farmers, they can only assist in the general search after knowledge by giving...

THE VICTORIAN COUP D'ETAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

THE VICTORIAN COUP D'ETAT. Revolutions are usually effected in one of two ways — namely, by force of arms, or by legislation. Of the former are the coups d'etat of Napoleon, and the incur sions of Garibaldi ; of the latter the Re form Bill just passed in England, and which both friends and foes admit to be a ' revolution.' But in the neighboring colony of Victoria the Government of the country is revolutionized after a new fashion. The Constitution is annulled ; but, strange to say, it is neither repealed by law nor overthrown by force. Mr. Higinbotham has discovered a via media, and has achieved a -revolution not only without powder, but we might almost say without paper. At all events he has destroyed the Parliament without the sanction of Parliament : he has set aside the Magna Charta of Victoria without the consent of the estates of the realm. He has consummated a revolution by a dodge, and has proclaimed the superiority of Trickery over every form of administra tion, and over e...

THE AGRICULTURAL DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

THE AGRICULTURAL DIFFICULTY. s If the Government want an excuse for not doing anything to help the farmers, some of the farmers are certainly helping the Government to that excuse. The most contradictory opinions are enun ciated at the different meetings convened to consider the existing distress ; and not only do different meetings disagree, but at the self same meetiner there is often such an antagonism of advice that the moral effect of the demonstration is lost. It is perfectly evident that if the Govern ment see the farmers at ' sixes and sevens,' quarrelling, disputing, and con tradicting one another as to what is to be done, nothing will he done. Ministers will appeal from the statement of one farmer to the flatly contradictory statement of another, and thus this apparently formidable agrarian agitation will achieve a victory similar to that gained by the Kilkenny cats. Of course it would be absurd to dis courage a free expression of opinion ; and we are not at all likely to ...

NEWS FROM THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

NEWS FROM THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. News from the Northern Territory has reached us at last. By the kindness of ike Chief Secretary we are enabled to publish in another column a telegram from Captain Cadell, giving particulars of his movements since we last heard from him. It appears that he has visited the Victoria River, Adam Bay, Anson Bay, the Roper and Liverpool Rivers. He has also been to Timor for supplies. He reports unfavorably of the Victoria River as a place of settlement, but recommends the Liverpool as the most eligible site for a capital. Of Anson Bay, which has been regarded favorably by all who have hitherto visited it, he says nothing. At Adam Bay he found that the promise made by the native chief Mira to Mr. Manton and his tarty before their leaving had been most scrupulously kept ; and :not only were ' the boats, the punt, and the buildings in good order, and the stock thriving, but the natives had allowed the bananas to rot on the trees, and the beans in the pod, r...

BRITISH VIEWS OF AUSTRALIAN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

BRITISH VIEWS OF AUSTRALIAN POLITICS. It used to be an old complaint that Australian affairs were neglected by the British Parliament, people, and press ; but certainly that complaint can no longer with fairness be urged. Of late Australia and the Australians have filled, we might almost say more than, their proportionate apace in the eye of the people, ana in tne columns of the press, of Britain, albeit rather- lagging in the Senate. We have now before us several thoughtful and well-written articles in recent numbers of leading English journals, from one or two of which we; shall quote a few ,. sentiments, thinking they will not be uninteresting to our readers. The first we refer to is an article in tho Saturday Review of October 5, k«adedj *' Colonial -3ovenioxs.J' We advise our leaders who have access to files ^and libraries to peruse the article inex^enso; whilst f or tf the million' we will endeavor to extract the pith and substance.
