MILLICENT, APRIL 18. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

IMLULIOENT, Apbil 18/ Some considerable -time ha» elapsed since I hut wrote, the delay being caused solely from the impossibility of collecting news of sufficient interest generally to warrant its publication. It ia true we have bad- one ' political ^meeting, at which Messrs. Hawker and Gfyde 'expounded their 'views,' 'but as the meeting followed the one held at Mount Gambier, of whioh' I knew you wouju nave a toil report, and moreover, . what the two ton. gentlemen said here was a ' simple repetition of their speeches there, it was not worth while sending you a detailed report. Well, they are both returned unopposed, and almost generally amongst the electors there ia the liveliest satisfaction at this result. It re mains now to be see» how many promises will be fulfilled, and what will be the fate of the many pnblic works required in the district, all of which were touched upon, and many pro znices of movement tbere anent made. — As for the election for the Upper House, there is.

MERRITOJS, Apbil 10. The weather etill contin»es very dry, v.ith no immediate prospect of a change.

The Rev. B. G. Edwards, who has recently taken cnarge of this district, addressed the meeting at some length, urging upon each the necessity of bear ing their, share in the work in the advancement of the interests of the church.

KOOLUNGA, APRIL 13. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

KOOLTJNGA, Apbil 13. We Lave been favored with a cbaage in grte weather. Yesterday there was a heavy wind blowing from the north-west all day, accom panied by clouds of duBt. We all thought we were going to have a good downpour, but were disappointed. Early this morning a light shower fell, which relieved ns of the dust, and during the day a few more light showers fell. A good fall ol rain would be very acceptable just now, as nearly every one is out of water, and scores of teams may be seen going to the Bronghton. Many farmers have to keep one teem of five horses continually carting water. There arestlllstroDgindicationsof more rain. — Steps are being taken to have this township put under the Police Act, and not berere it was wanted. At present there are no less than five dead horses lying in a blind creek not above a quarter of a mile from the township, and some times the stench is rnbearable. I think it is time something was done in the matjar. — The Rev. W. Wilson bas thought fi...

LORD BEACONSFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

LORD BEACONSFIELb. ' V'ii Telegrams relating to the illness and. growing weakness of Lord Beaconsfield have in part prepared the public for the news of hie death, and to-day we have to deplore the fact that another of the fast diminishing band of statesmen who have piloted Britain through the changeful and ofttimes stormy waters of the last half century has . been . called to. swell tha ranks of 'the great majority.' There, have been few men on whom -it is more difficult to pronounce ? -an un biassed opinion than Benjamin' **Disra8lif: and certainly the time for adverse criticism is not. now while the grave continues: un closed over his' mortal remains; . It is 0V9i of the excellencies of English political life that oppositions seldom ripen' into:anioio^?. ties, and that honest differences. 4-f , opinion* do not necessarily ? imply; the. formation of, uncharitable judgments,- or prevent the ex'\ presfiion of admiration for .ability, enetgA andsneceas.

THE DISPUTES IN TUNIS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

THE DISPUTES IN TUNIS. Oub telegrams of the last few days give indications of unsettled relationships in Northern Africa. Misunderstandings have arisen between France and England and between France and Italy regarding the rights jaf their subjects in Tunis, and the amount of influence which the Power* should respectively exercisa there. The differences between France and England have virtually been settled, but the ill feeling which Italy cherishes is not abated, and is displayed in bitter accusations against France and attempts to excite the Bey of Tunis to resent French dictation and inter ference. France on her side is massing troops on the frontiers of Algeria ; ten thou sand soldiers are said to have occupied the fortified townof Confitantina, and other usual preliminaries to hostile encounters are ob servable. It is to be hoped that mutual explanations and forbearance may avert actual collision, and that the protestations of pacific intentions which France has. been lavishing ...

THREATENED WAR IN ASHANTEE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

'TkujfiATENED WAR IN ASHANTBH. As the war clouds dispel from one portion of British territory in Africa, they 'begin to patber in another. No sooner is one con flict finished than a fresh trouble arises iu its place. The termination of the Zulu war was followed by misunderst&ndings with the Baeutos and the revolt of the Boers, and just as indications are appearing that further bloodshed may be stayed in the South, Kitg Eoffee KaUtali, ol Ashantee, evinces sicrns of restlessness or.d threatens a fresh invasion of Bri tish territory. What his reason may be for assuming this defiant attitude at the prt-tent juncture, we can only conjec ture. It is just possible that exaggerated reports of disasters to our army at Main wand, Isandols, and in the Transvaal may have reached the sable monarch in his re mote fastnesses, and that he deems this a favorable opportunity for paying off old scores and wriggling out of the heavy in demnity imposed on his predecessor ; or it may be that he ...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL ELECTIONS. Electoral contests for the Upper House are generally pretty quiet, but somewhat to the surprise of people who looked for a good deal of excitement in connection with the election of six members for the Legislative Council, which took place on Wednesday, April 20, that contest did not offer any remarkable exception to the rule. There were such great issues before the country — Upper House reform, taxation, and so on— that a different result might fairly have been expected. Still the fact remains that in the citj tbe election pasted off with the utmost quietness, and our telegrams will show that, generally speaking, the same was the case in the country. The fact that manhood suffrage in the absence of a property qualification does not give the right of voting for tbe Upper House of courte makes the number of those who exercise their suffrages for that chamber small in comparison with the number who vote for the House of Assembly, and it is evident th...

THE SHIPOWNERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

THE SHIPOWNERS' ASSOCIATION. The formation of a South Australian Shipowners' Association is an important event in the history of Port Adelaide. It is but a further development of the modernly-recognieed principle of coopera tion of persons with common interests. Most trades and sections of the community have found it advantageous to put into actual practice the oft-quoted maxim that ' Union is strength,' and by means of in fluential organisations to protect their rights, or to procure needed coBcessions for them selves, as the case may be. In fact, now a- days the classes whose members neglect to band themselves into this sort of agitative and protective alliance are generally found to labor under special disabilities which could be eesily removed by the making of united representations to the powers that be. The beneficial nature of such co-operation is so universally ad mitted as to need no boletering-up with arguments. A Shipowners' Association has been long needed in this colony...

FLESH, FISH, AND FRUIT EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

FLESH, FISH, AND FRUIT EXPORTS. The progress made by the Australian colonies, eince their first settlement by . ?whites at the end of the eighteenth century, may fairly le said to be unparalleled in the history of the world. Australia's present proud position amongst old-world nations, whose emtcence is of the elow growth of centuries, is a grand monument of the colonis ing energy and undaunted indifference to ob stacles possessed by the Anglo-Saxon race, aid presents another illustratk.n of the in herent vitality of free British institutions. And the yolu me of its trade and commerce is yearly being augmented in an everincreas ing ratio. Not the least of the revolutions which have characterised our trade relations with the world is the substitution of steam for wind power in connection with all lands of shipping. The days of fast-sailing clippers are now in the sere and yellow leaf, and steam iron vessels are everywhere push ing the old wooden sailing ships out of the aTerm of trad...
