THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 March 1866

THE MINISTRY. The ' extra PaiTiamcntary utterances' that were heard at Finniss Flat on Thursday hare far more than a local interest. What was | ostensibly only the acknowledgment by. a j member of the Cabinet of the ordinary toast ! of the Ministry of the day, at a local meeting, I was in fact the valedictory address of a re tiring premier to the colonists generally- And it is not often that a Chief {Secretary is in a position to deliver such an address as that spoken by Mr. IIaut on Thursday. The cir cumstance of the head of a Gorernmcnt heating a graceful retreat from the sweets of j office and the repose of a recess, while he still wears the laui-els of a hard fought victory in their pristise freshness, is an unusual one in South Australia. It is not to be wondered at. then, that Mr. Hart cheerfully availed him self of the opportunity afforded by an invita tion to Finniss Flat to hare his farewell say to the public generally, nor that he was enabled to use it to some purpose. lie...

COUNTRY INSTITUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 March 1866

COUNTKY INSTITUTES. The rise and fall of country Institutes affords a topic on which we wish some light could be thrown. A fate seems to attend them by which, after a brief rush of prosperity on their first establishment, they at length dwindle into as good as nothing. This we think is matter of regret. For if the local Institute does not quite satisfy all the intellectual wants of a ] neighborhood, it serves at least as a centre around which intelligent associations ma\ gather. Indeed, we think there are many subsidiary advantages attendant oa the :tab lishment of such an institution. For one thing, it unites all classes and parties in a work calculated to excite no vain rivalries, and to which no one for very shame dare take exception. Thene political contest and religious differences are forgotten. Men of all sorts unite under a common impulse of good neighborhood to engage in the diffusion of useful knowledge, and to provide a better sort of recreation than the public-house can ...

THE GREAT DESERT RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 24 March 1866

THE GREAT DESERT RUNS. We suljoin the substance of the petition lately presented to Parliament from tbe holders of- the scrub runs in the Great Desert. It is as follows : — That there is an immense extent of country lying betweew the Murray, the Cooroug1, and the border of the colony, known as the Great Desert, or Monster Scrub,- contaiTiiag an area «f about 12,000 square miles, the centre being only 9t) miles iu a direct line from Adelaide, at present nothing but an im mense waste, in which, when mutton, wool, and beef were at tiie highest, certain runs were taken out. Tbat, in apite of those favorable eireucistences, the most of those runs have been thrown up again, as the country is so poor the lessees could not pay the rent and assessment. ' That, aince then, a number of those thrown-np runs have been offered to public competition, and only one taken up — viz., by Mr..

THE CULTIVATION OF ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 31 March 1866

THE CULTIVATION OF ORCHARDS. The best system to adopt in the cultivation of orchards is a subject of great and general interest. We quote the following remarks thereon from the Melbourne Age : — ' On many occasions during the ur.usup.Hy moist seasors of 1862 and 1363, we felt it insumbent upjn us to address friendly warnings to our readers against adopting a system of cultire based on the very exceptional weather we were then enjo\ing. Tiic experience of the iiext and presenf summers has fully iustified the EU2cestions then offered, and has afforded grounds for a few farther hints of a practical character. Amongst other points on which a difference of opiuion appears to have existed is that respecting the expediency or otherwise cf sowing the intervals between orchard trees in grass, a piactice u:iiverfcal!y adopted in England, aud that, too, without Eeri- us di.-tri:i!ent to tiie tree3, if uot with positively beneficial effect.
