THE SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 1868. SEED WHEAT. ; _ At various farmers' meetings, and through the columns of the press; much, discussion has taken place with, reference . to the propriety or impropriety of using shrivelled grain as,seed Tsrh.eat; Opposite opinions prevail on. the aubjeat ; the di versity of judgment being quite as strongly marked amongst practical farmers of long experience, as between persons who .merely ^regard the question from a scientific or theoretical point of view. We know of wheat growers who nave cultivated -cereals in this colony for more than 20 years, who differ tot° -soeU) on the subject now; under considera tion; some affirming that the shriveUed grain is just as good, for seed as the plumpest, that could be found, whilst others insist that to use shrivelled seed is the sure and certain way ±o effect the destruction of next yeaf^ crop. Where agricultural 'doctors disagree like this, it is excusable if persons not so practically conversant with .the subjec...

-JAWLER, Jaotdtaby 16. Persons who have been in the habit of visit ing Gawler in the month of Januaiy for the last few years on seeing it now, and all through this - monthj wiU be struck iwith the difference. -? In stead of the , streets being full of drays with wheat and other produce, and signs of healthy activity everywhere, there is now scarcely a dray to be seen. -The effect on trade is fearfully felt, and one is almost, led to ask,. what can the. shopkeepers nndtodo? instead or Uawler being the granary of the North, as mostly heretofore, We must content ourselves in thinking of the past, and hoping for the future. Many persons are shortening hands, and creditors' meetings are very. rife.. The Government have met the times well and usefully so far by accepting wood and stone off the farmers and others in this neighborhood, and this will certainly be a great means of enabling those whoneedit to live and struggle on, while the cutting and carting sleepers from Williamstown to the...
