CORRESPONDENCE. (From our own Correspondents). MOUNT BRYAN EAST, OCT. 14. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 October 1878

CORRESPONDENCE. (From our own Correspondents). MOUNT BRYAN EAST. Oct. 14. Splendid rains have fallen since my last. It commenced about noon on Wednesday, and rained at intervals till Thnrsday night, wash ing all the banks and dams in the neighbour hood. It has come too late to make any differ ence in forming the head of wheat, for they were all commencing to shoot out before the rain came. All the barley crops are out in ear The rain has caused the ploughs to be set to work again. The farmers are glad the Rabbit Bill is passed, and hope that it will soon be enforced, the sooner the better as the grass wfll very shortly dry up, and then they will be comming down on the crops in thousands.

Municipal. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 October 1878

Municipal The end of the municipal year is now rapidly approaching, and at the Cer poration meeting last Monday the dates for the sitting- of the Court of Revision of the Burgess lioll, and for the nomi nations were fixed- The revision is to take place on November 25. and the nomination on November 27. The Mayor of course retires, also Councillors Sara, Wilkinson, and Roberts ; one for each ward. The election of their suc cessors is fixed by the Act to take place on December 1, but that date this year falling on a Sunday the poll will be taken on Monday, 2nd, Two aspirants for the mayoralty are before the rate payers, but as yet we have not heard definitely of any candidates for the councillorships, though a Councillor really has more voting power than the Mayor, who rarely is called upon to exercise his vote. We do not intend to advocate the claims of any particular candidate, as we think that every rate payer should be free of himself to con sider, unbiassed, the merits of each, a...

Massacre at the South Sea Islands. The following is ar account of the ! massacre of five Wesleyan teachers was I brought by a German barque Johan Osu»sa.r- and imblislied in the Swlnpir papers : — About Easter, five of the Rev. George Brown's teachers, named respec tively Levi, Silas, Timothy, Ben, and another, who were stationed at Malicola, New Britain, and who were friendly with the tribes, incautiously ventured inland some ten miles. The bush natives, who are hostile to the coast natives, surrounded the teachers, and attacked them with spears and clubs, killing the whole party, who were unharmed, and therefore perfectly defenceless. The poor fellows were quickly despatched, and their remains cooked and eaten at a native feast, and amid the most bar barous ceremonies. The news of the horrible affair soon spread tothe adjourn ing stations, of the Duke of York Island where Mr. Brown resides.

Gardens on Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 October 1878

Gardens on Farms. There is no necessity for the cry so bftan used that life in the country is a hard one, l-ecause none of the; luxuries of eitv life are obtainable. The farmer who makes use of this expression is in somewhat the same predicament ais the young fellow who lay on his back under the peach-tree, complaining that the fruit would not fall down to be eaten. If it is too much trouble to enclose a piece of land for a vegetable garden, he can at least plough a strip very deeply, and about four' feet wide, then run the harrows over it a few tim'es, find sow his seeds upon it. Tliis should not occupy more than a couple of days, and with a few sowings afterwards he may supply his kitchen with vegetables all the year round. Say, for instance, that in the month of October he has got his piece of ground rea'dy, he might put in twenty yards length of white beet a foot apart, which would give him a boiling ot leaves of spinach all through the sum mer and far into winter. He could sow ...

Trial of Grubbing-Machines. The second trial of grubbing-machines in competition for the prizes voted by Parlia ment for the encouragement of the invention of implements o'f this kind took place on Thursday, October 10, under the auspices ol tbe Royal Agricultural Society upon a section belonging to Mr. H. Good, of Alma Plain?, called the Boundry Farm, in the Barabba Scrub. The former trial took place near Gawkr amongst pepperment scrub, and was not considered to be altogether satisfactory; hence the present competition. The weather was. extremely rough, cold, and wet, and the energies of the men engaged in working the various machines seemed to be rather damped in consequense. This was not however tbe case with three professional baad-grobbers, who entered into competion with the machines with, tbe avowed determination to prove that human bone and muscle were superior to machinery. The cold weather seemed to spur them on to extra exertion, and they actually beat the machines by ° c...

Various other small Bills were considered, and the House ad journed.

Railway Guages. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 October 1878

Railway Gauges. The "Battle of the Gauges" is no hazy   thing to many of our readers, and it is still as interesting and important as ever it was. It is a pity Mr. A. F. Lindsay is not now in Parliament, for then would at least a protest be entered against the folly that is being constantly perpetrated of authorising tie construction of railways of diverse gauges. In   these colonies, where all ought to have adopted similar principle there is nothing but confusion, Queensland has a 3 ft. 6 in. guage uniform. New South Wales throughout 4 ft. 8½ in. Victoria all 5 ft. 3 in. South Australia, be it said to her shame, has made     herself conpicuously foolish by adopting   two guages, that of Queensland and     that of Victoria. Now, occupying as we do a central position, we might have   decided which should be the Australian gauge of the future, and had we adopted that of New South Wa...
