THE GULF STEEAM: WHAT IS IT? [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868

THE GULF STREAM: WHAT IS IT? In an age when a Conservative Minis try brings in a Reform Bill too demo cratic for Mr. Bright, one ought not to be easily startled ; yet we confess to have felt some little astonishment on seeing it coolly stated in a contemporary magazine that the ' Gulf Stream is a subterranean water, mainly fed by the Mediterranean Sea.' ('The Water-Link.' Broadway for October.) To any orie acquainted with the principles of physical geography the absurdity of such a supposition is apparent ; but as the majority of maga zine readers have neither the time nor vthe inclination, for scientific investiga tions, and as a theory confidently put forward might be supposed to have some ..basis of truth,' if allowed to pass un Mchallenged, we purpose very briefly to .expose the flinasy character of the foun dation upon- which this supposition is built.. ,j o After., describing, with considerable accuracy: and graphic ; power,' the main phenomena belonging to the great oceanic c...

THE FARMING INTEREST. MEETING AT PINKERTON'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868

THE FARMING DTTEKEST. MEETING AT PINKERTON'S PLAINS. _ A large meeting of farmers, convened to con sider the best means of obtaining seed wheat for . farms on which the crops had been des troyed by red rust, took' place on Tuesday at Mr. Wm, Forrest's new building, Pinkerton's Plains, about 60 farmers being present. Mr John Babeow, of Ashwell, presided, and having read the advertisement calling the meeting, said they had met there that day, he was sorry to say, on a sort of begging affair, and that was not what they generally liked ; nor could, tney ask what they contemplated as any right the Government were bound to concede. He believed the cases of ruin were most de plerable, not through any neglect on their parts, but through some misfortune over which they had no control. It appeared from different reports that all parts of the colony were not so bad as that part ; but he was satisfied the case was bad enough to call them together. He hoped something would occur to take them out...

HOW TO INTRODUCE OUR COLONIAL WINES INTO THE LONDON MARKET. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868

HOW TO INTRODUCE OUR COLO NIAL WINES INTO THE LONDON MARKET. {communicated.] The produce of South Australian vine yards has proved beyond a doubt the superior adaptability of the soil and cli mate to the production of wines of high character. The verdicts passed at tile Paris and Victorian Exhibitions, and subsequently, the judgment pronounced by so eminent a connoissear as Dr. Bleas dale, are sufficient to establish the reputa tion of our wines in this and the neigh boring colonies. But more is required before' they can be placed in the English market as an article of permanent com mercial value. Though we produce some wines 01 admitted, excellence, tnere is~ no winegrowing country in the world where so much worthless trash is con sumed in proportion to wine of superior quality. One reason is that many of our vignerons have attempted, the manufac ture, in total ignorance of the elementary principles upon which the production of good wine depends.

THE NEW SHIPPINa ACT. It may he interesting to many of our readers to be made acquainted with the principal provisions of the new British Merchant Shipping Act, which came into operation on the first day of the present year. It contains 12 clauses, and by it the 224th, 227th, and 2Blst sections of the Merchant Shipping Act of 1854 are re pealed.

OUR VINEYARDS AND ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868

OtTB VINEYARDS AND ORCHARDS. It is now more than six years since we published the series of articles on the vineyards and orchards of South Aus tralia, which were written expressly for these journals by Mr. Bbenezer Ward. Of course, since their publication much additional and valuable information has been: gained by those vinegrowers whose experiences we then recorded ; and also in ?fce extension of vine culture and the im provement of wine maln'Tig great progress has been made. In the interval the great Exhibitions of London, PariB, Melbourne, and Adelaide have been held, and at all ui lhulu. tut! ws-COiitsiiut; ui iiiaiiy ou u.i-i± -o.ua - traJian wines has been indubitably proved.

OUR SURPLUS MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868

OXTR SURPLUS MEAT. The question as to how we shall dispose mostprofitablyof our surplusmeatmay]be come stale, but can never be unprofitable. It is of greater importance even than that of finding a market for our wine, for it must be many years before the produce of our vineyards could equal- in. exportable posing we could hit upon' some way of preserving meat fresh, and in such a form as to ba palatable to the English taste. Hitherto, we have heard of method after method, and invention after invention, all declared to be the veiy thing we require, but somehow these schemes have one after the other been shelved. The most useful invention of all, if practicable, is beyond doubt the freezing process, for by that method the carcase would be deli vered whole in the English market, and would in that condition command .the highest price. Whether this experiment ib really being fairly tried, and whether a vessel is to be dispatched with its freight' of frozen sheep, we are not aware ; but i...

THE GREAT IRISH DH^FICULT^. The Fenian difficulty is not ended witir the execution, of Allen, Gould, and Lar-:', kin. It is true, the Government are sup«. ported by public opinion as regards this extreme measure ; but the public are as much mistaken as the Government if they . suppose that the hanging of three men will stamp out a conspiracy widely spread throughout the United Kingdom, nur tured and fnsfcfiTArl in Arrnwirvi o-nrl d4-it«ti_ lated in various centres of Continental .'V Europe. No one doubts that policeman Bretfc was very cruelly murdered. No one doubts that when an officer is shot dead in the simple execution of his duty, the safety of society (to say nothing of the memory of the victim himself) re quires that a severe example should be made of the murderer. Even the condemned men themselves took this view ; for though theyavowedthey were Fenians, and admit ted that they were engaged in the attempt to capture aiid break open the prison van ; they one and all lamented t...
