THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868
THE WEATHER. We have conversed with, several old colonists — by which we mean colonists who arrived with or before Governor Hindmarsh — and they all agree that such a continuation as we now hav« of winter weather at midsummer has never~before been equalled— at least, not since white men settled in South Australia. Certainly the climatic phenomena of' the last few months have been extraordinary, and, we regret to say, most unfortunate for the agriculturist. Not only has the rust destroyed one-half, -of bis growing crops, but the most - unusual weather we ~ are now experiencing prevents the^ingather^ ing of the other moiety. In this weather^ there can be neither winnowing nor reap; ing; except at odd times. Heaps of -wheat, reaped in the fine weather, lie on the ground, exposed to the continuous rains; whilst the unreaped portions can not be touched lay the machine, and of course are going worse everyday. Horses, implements, ' and men,' are standing idle ; and everything seems to run ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE FALL OF THE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 18 January 1868
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE FALL OF THE TREE. I sat in deep gloom on a starlight eve To mourn o'er a loved one, whose loss I still grieve ; The sky shed its benison softly around, And the dew-drops lay thick on the verdure- clad ground. But my eyes wandered far past the beautiful scene, Till they fixed on a spot where fell rain had been ; &nbsp; &nbsp; There mangled and torn by the tempest's fierce strength, On the earth a tree-giant had measured its length. It was prone on the bank, all robbed of its pride, For the lightning had scathed it, and, conquered, it died ; And the branches which lately o'ershadow'd the sod &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Were laid low in the dust, or were scattered abroad. I wept for the fall of the beautiful tree ; Yet why was it's ruin affecting to me ! Ah ! it was a reminder of joys that are fled, Once flourishing fair, but now blasted and dead ! It brought a remembrance of life snatched away, In the pride of its bloom, in the mor...
