Teetulpa, the bope S. Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 November 1887

Teetulpa, the bope S. Australia. The scene of greater excitement than the colony had ever yet known has un dergone a process of evaporation in more senses than one. The field once dotted with teats far as the eye could reach is now, comparatively speaking, deserted. Onee having a population of 7,000 or more, it is doubtful whether it could now muster one thousand. The Parade is no longer crowded on the Saturday evening with those who have come to buy or to see what might be bought. Cheap Jack has succumbed to the depressing effects of the times, and gone elsewhere to retail his razors and repeat his old jokes, and the air of the whole township appears to be " What next?" A few diggers are turning over the old claims and seeking the gold previous search patties may have over looked. These are a dejected' looking lot of men. More hopeful in tone and manner than these are those engaged in the reefs, and judging by an order I saw given to a storekeeper on Saturday evening by a party fro...

Correspondence. TAXATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 November 1887

Correspondence. TAXATION. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,-When State exchequers get low, Governments naturally cast about to refill* but, having no higher knowledge than precedent or expediency, adopt various indirect methods of taxation besides those to collect them. This variety is probably not so noticeable, but still intensifies, instead of lessens, the burdens of the taxpayers, and by cunning distribution the masses fail to see the iniquitous effects, and unfor tunately bear it while those who levy it do the grinning. Legislatures propound phases of deliverance, but fail to giet beyond the introduction of. some obsolete-or elswhere tried and ever found wanting-systems; systems that rob the commonwealth and let wealth go free, and thus the people continue to suffer. ,411 countries as a rule recognise and adopt the Customs system to begin with, and claim to do so on the groimds of equity, founded on the fact that all human life eats, dtrinks, works, wears, and earns. Good. But the workers do...

Original Poetry. A PLEA FOR THE PIPE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 November 1887

OriginalPoetry. A PLEA FOR THE PIPE. Br BRASH. When pressed by hard thoughts, and o'er ridden by woe, The heart sore beset, the spirit'eo-low, ben deserted by friends I've still felt thy aid, Thy faults, dear old pipe, though hast doubly repaid. Dearer to me than ever thou art, Wbeci tiraie is hurled at thee like a dart, Mate of the lonely, solitad<t'« friend, Long be thy reign and distant thy end. Cherished thou art in all walks of life, Comfort hast given where troubles are rife; A pinch of old shag, a spark to ignite, Lo, auger lies dormant, and wrong u made right. Shades of Sir Walter, in the days of Qneen Bess, Bless'd be thy memjry for thy fragrant bequest j For well didst thou know, most chivalrous Knight, That virtue lay hid in the bowl ofapipe. The sailor can vouch for its sedative powers, When long hangs the time in the midnight; - houft; The sotdier methiaks in his rough bivouac Finds his greatest solace in the pipe of tobac.

The Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 November 1887

Tlie Crops. The -crops for about mne miles in the direction of Dawson are looking i xery .well, all out in ear and nearly ready for the mower, averaging about 10 or 12 bushels. One nice crop on liUner-tone Hill, about eight miles from Petersburg, is very even and healthy looking and ought to go fully 18j bushels. F urther en.in the hundred of Coglin and extending northwards to the hundred of Cayenagh there appears to be a good deal of blight among the crops, the flag in almost every casn being quite dead, and in many eases the ' ear appears with almost a third of the head blighted and grainless. I noticed one very uneven crop in the southern portion of the hundred of Cavenagb, ranging in patches from 3ft to 8in in height, and again patches dead ripe and j ready for the stripper, whilst other i portions of the same crop are just com ing out in ear. This no doubt is to a great extent due to the very hot' winds lately experienced, which cause the wheat to ripen rapidly before the grain...
