GAWLEE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOtt. Sir — In i he report of the Town Coun cil's proceedings, reported in your issue j of the Stli April, I fiud pei-iiiifssion w given to the Gawlcr Agricultural and Horticultural Society to 'have the use of the Park Lands for lour days in the year, with a iirivil«re of charuiiis: for booths, stalls, and any other erection I lie Society may deem proper to allow. 1 very much | question if the Council, as trustees for the town and 1lie Park Lands, nave the. power to grant any such permission in favor of any such Society. The Park Lands I have always understood were set apart by the original owners of Gawler for the benefit and recreation of the townsfolk**, and if c-o how can Hie Coun cil get the power of making snich a con cession ! The Council can allow the Park Lands to be used for any amusement-, but for prizes or gain to any body of men, even as a Society, I very much doubt. j A BURGESS.
A VOLUNTEER, GROWL. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 6 May 1865
A VOLUNTEER. GROWL. There is to ho no review on thp Queen's Birthday, ' and a good job too ' —at least lor the country companies. Much has been said at public meetings and in Parliament, in Courts of Enquiry and Defence Commissions, about tne efficiency ot the volunteers, iueso men who give up their time and trouble in hope of learning to do their duty to their country are. scandalised in every direction as being inpfficiont by men ^vho, from some cause ov other — perhaps ccnvardice perhaps caution, perhaps physical disa bility — have held aloof. Some of the loudest of those who exclaim agaiart the volunteers are the very men who have the largest amount of property to protect, and yet who, if the men in their empl«»y haveJ joined thn force, throw every obstacle in the way of their attending the necessary ; drills to make them efficient. But this is j wandering from the subject. We repeat much has been said about the inefficiency of the* volunteers j but what fins been said ; about t...
CURIOSITIES OF THE LONDON DIRECTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 6 May 1865
CURIOSITIES OF THE LONDON DIRECTORY. Tho Post-Office London Directory is exhibiting in an alarming degree that phenomenon which when connected with human beings, leads. Mr. Banting to write essays on the best mode of keeping down corpulency. Tho volume now reaches tho extent of two thousand eight hun dred pages, and those, too, of a large octavo sizo. One of tho manv wonders of this book is, that it is entirely a matter of private enter prise. Tho Post-Office authorities afford faci lities in certain ways for its compilation, on i account of its great usefulness to them as well ' as to others; but all the responsibility is borne I 'by a private firm. * Directories always seem to have been in pri vate hands in this country. As far back as j tho year 1677, there was printed for sale a list j of about eighteen hundred dealers and firms j in London, with their addresses, but the trades j not fully specified. This was perhaps tho ear- j liest of our directories. Mr. Hotton has lately [ p...

MINTARO. [From our own Correspondent j April 29. By-the-byc 1 was very sorry you had not space for my last communication, and I am also happy to inform you that your Ihinyip is truly appreciated in this lo cality, many persons having expressed their desire to subscribe to the same. 'While lam writing April is on iho waive, and although it will soon be num bered amongst tho times that were, st ill it is fraught with wonderful incident, and has witnessed the tomfoolery of more than one unsurpassable humbug in this enlihgtened and cver-to-be-remeuibcrcd locality of unassuming Mintaro.

OUR STREETS AND ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 6 May 1865
OUR STREETS AND ROADS. Among the street improvements, which it is satisfactory to see, have received due municipal attention, we notice that Reid-street, near Messrs. Pearce, Wincey and Co's yards, has been made available to the town, by filling it up. To have constructed the drain in this case, would have been the more costly plan, the lowest tender for a drain being £35, whereas the present earthwork has been done at a cost of only £20, Messrs Pearce, Wincey & Co. contributing one-half, the rest being supplemented through the Corporation. The north end of High-street has been metalled, and the roadmen will be trans- ferred to the centre of that street next week. Mr. Warren has nearly com- pleted his task of fixing accurately and conclusively the angles of the streets, portions of which are still experiencing the beautifying skill of Mr. Priest, of the Mintaro Slate Quarries, especially in front of the Prince Albert Hotel, and along the entire front of Mr. P.
