BUSH FIRES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

BUSH FIRES. TO THE EDITOR. _ Sir — Having had 20 years' experience of bush life in Australia, I am of opinion that nearly all our bush fires occur through the use of the common lucifer match igniting by heat or fric tion when left about. Had a law passed last session to abolish the use of these matches, and only allow the use of the safety match, which, with all its faults, will ignite only on the box or material prepared for it, nearly all the grief and destruction of property which occurred last month would have been averted; ad however stringent measures may be adopted for security against bush fires, they will be of little avail unless the use of the .runmon lucifer match is totally done away with, as they are the origi nators of all our bush fires. I am, Sir, &c, J. C. Clare, January 14.

INSECTS AND WHEAT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

INSECTS AND WHEAT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Some days ago I heard a farmer's re marks on his wheat crop. He stated, that just as the wheat was in its prime, an insect resem bling the mosquito penetrated the stalk and ex tricated the suction. He also stated that some flowers fell victims to these insects, and to try the experiment, he shut some of them up in a bottle and found them to live some time. When he-looked at the wheat he had put into it, the inside was completely pecked out. I am, Sir, &c, G. H. G. Adelaide, January 17, 1868.

THE CASE OF THE FARMER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

THE CASE OF THE FAEMEE. TO THE EDITOR, Sir — Various plans have iieen proposed for the relief of the farmers in the unheard-of calamity which has befallen them in the destruction of their crops this year, and diffe rent methods have been suggested by which to give them that relief, all of which, to my mind, will be perfectly useless Tinless. we carry the thing a little farther. Now, Mr. Editor, tne plan I would propose, in addition to what the Government wjll dp, would be to let the merchant act in a liberal spirit towards the storekeeper by receiving half cash for their ac ceptances falling due for the next three months, and renewing the other half. This, will then enable the storekeepers to act in a liberal spuit towards the farmer who is not in a position to pay his six months' account with the store keeper. I put it in this light;, because if the merchant will exact £he whole of the amount of the acceptances as thev become due. the store. keeper must then, as a matter of necessi...

AGRICULTURAL DIFFICULTIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

AGRICULTURAL DIFFICULTIES. TO THE EDITOR *? Sir— Many meetings have been held lately to take into consideration the great distress exist ing among the farmers through red rust, take lill, kc, at which meetings I have been sorry to : [ observe the general ideas seem to be to expect the Government to come forward and give them seed wheat, and not only give it to them, but send the money out of the colony to purchase it. I for one, sir, am totally opposed to the fGovernment doing anything of the kind, for the following reasons -.—There are several large dis tricts that have been blessed with good crops, and from conversation with many of the owners thereof I am convinced that if the Government would undetake the distribution of the seed, and the District Councils generally appoint some place in their district to receive it, enough good wheat would soon flow in to pro vide seed wheat for all those absolutely needing at (and they are the only ones who should have it). Surely, Sir, the fa...

MEETING AT NAIRNE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

MEETING AT NAIRNE. A public meeting was held at the Millers' Anns, Nairriei on Mond&y evening, January 20, to take into consideration the bad state of the crops in the district, and. what steps should be taken to alleviate the distress thence arising. The meeting was advertised for 7 o'clock, but it was after 8 before the business commenced, when the attendance #as very huge, between 80 and 100 Bersons beinsr Dresent. Mr. David Chapman, Chairman of the Nairne District Council, was unanimously called upon to pre- - side. The Chairman having opened the meeting by reading the placard calling it, said the matter which they had met to discuss was very im portant, and one in which they were all more or less interested. He hoped they would all speak to the point- and keep order. That was a farmers' meeting, and he was glad to see so many farmers present, but he should have liked to have seen even more. He hoped they would speak out and make their wants known, as the Nairne people w...

THE FARMING INTEREST. MEETING AT DAVEYSTON. At a meeting which was held at the Old Nain Hotel, in Daveyston, the 18th January, to consider the' desirability of the Government supplying the farmers with seed-wheat, the fol lowing resolutions were passed : — 1. Proposed by Mr. NrrsCHKE, seconded by Mr. E. Hempel, 'That it is the opinion of this meetimr that it is the dutv of the Govern ment to procure seed- wheat for the farmers whose crops have failed through red rust.' 2. Proposed by Mr. M. Dienhoff, and se conded by Mr. H. Schwasz, 'That this meet ing is of opinion that as the farmers have -had no crops, the landlords ought to allow this year's rent.' 3. Proposed by Mr. J. Bbauson, seconded by Mr. F. SOHLOSSEE, ' That in the opinion of this meeting, the bankers, importers, and mer chants ought to be lenient with the store keepers in the country, so as to enable the latter to extend that leniency to the farmers.' 4.

NEW SOUTH WALES. OFFICIAL LANDING OF THE EARL OF BELMORE. [From the Sydney Morning Herald of 9th Jan.] The official landing of His Excellency the Right Honorable the Earl of Belmore, who arrived by the ship Sobraon on Tuesday last, took place yesterday. The place selected for the landing was the Circular Quay, and not withstanding the drizzling rain which continued to fall during the earlier part of the day, a large number of people assembled in the vicinity of the quay shortly after U o'clock, and by noon. the concourse of spectators was very great indeed. Every eminence which com manded a view of the landing-place was occu pied, and by the kind permission of Captain.

VICTORIA. January 14, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

VICTORIA. [From our Melbourne Correspondent.] ,, . January 14. 1868. Your readers do not need to be told that the great excitement at the time with us is the general election, which is now fairly on, and will be finished about the time that yours will be commencing. It is very annoying to think that we should be subjected to this purposeless waste of time and money, a year before the proper time, when we might have been taking up a lot of the spare cash of the English capi talists now going a begging and pushing on the great improvements which are needed to open up the country and promote its internal and general prosperity. Our rulers prefer setting the Houses of Parliament by the ears and fostering a war of classes so long as. the majority will follow their bidding. It appears very likely, however, that this last move will prove anything but satisfactory to its authors. As far as the first batch of elections goes they cannot gain anything, and it is almost absolutely certain that ...

EXTRACTS FROM INDIAN AND OTHER PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

EXTRACTS FROM INDIAN AND OTHER PAPERS. rFrom Greville & Co?b files. 1 The Overland China Mail gives the details of ; some good service in the repression of piracy in the Chinese waters by H.M.S. Janus- and Algerina, and the gunboat Bauneet. Lieutenant Mainwaring attacked a party near Swatow, burnt three piratical crafts, and obtained an indemnity of .§5,057. A destructive fire occurred at Hongkong on tthe28th November, which laid waste a large portion of the city, and was even more -usas- . trous than the one that occurred a twelvemonth since. Several casualties occurred. The boats wain of BLM.S. Perseus received injuries of which he died the next day. Several men of the 73rd were injured, 'and it is feared many natives lost their lives. There does not appear to have been any organization of the bodies endeavoring to arrest the progress of the fire, and consequently their efforts with the mecha nical aid of no less than 13 fire engines were of little value.

SELECTED POETRY. NEW Aim OLD IRELAND. O weep for the day we were dmv from our cot, From our praties and milk, and our stirabout pot, Where Judy kept everything piping and hot, Just over the cat in the corner. The pigs and the dogs, and the childer agraa, Lay down on the floor so dacent in stra' ; While the cocks and the hens were perched up ava, Just over them all in the corner. Our house was so nate, all covered with thatch, It looked like a harlekrn's coat, patch for paten ; While the door it was opened by lifting a latch, With a thong that bung down in the corner. Our windy, so clean, by an unlucky stroke, Had three of the purtiest panes in it broke ; We fastened up two with the tail of a coat, And tbe smoke went through one in the corner. Our dresser was drest out in illigint style, The trenchers and noggins your heart would beguile, And the goose she was hatching her eggs all the while Eight under them, all in the corner. A scythe was stuck here, and a reapisg-hook there, And P...

I^JAVES FBOM OUB IfOTE-BOOKl. We observe in aDeyonshirepaperthat Admiral Kelly, who was buried :at 3£«lly, in Devon, on. the '8tih of October '.'last,* has bequeathed the very large sum of £80,000 to found a 'Kelly College,' in Devenshire, for the education and maintenance of .'boys, sons of members of the Church of England. - It is known that Mr. Disraeli has denied that . the new Reform Bill ?will be such a democratic measure as many people suppose ; asserting that it will, :on the contrary, be rather conservative - in its operation. K so, Mr. ' Disraeli and. his . chief (Lord Derby) must not 'only have sue- . ceededln deluding the Liberals and the nation, but nine out of ten of the Conservative party, who regard the measure as a 'surrender' of the -atadel of Conservatism, Mr. Dudley Baxter, however, in a long andelaborate letter on thesub- ject, points out several ways in which the Reform Sill will work - that, to some extent, -support Mr. Disraeli's views.

AN HOUR WITH THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

AN HOUR WITH THE DEAD. In silence of the starry night The lost one came once more, But came not with the soulless look Her coffin'd image wore ; For life and love were in her eyes, Their warmth upon her cheek, And in tbe sweet familiar tones Her lips a greeting speak. Again her face to me is press'd la all its girlish charms, And pent-up cares of troubled years Are wept within her arms ; And yet it seeineth, as we talk, The 'old times' come not near, But we have met, as meet we should, Could she indeed be here. And how those parted hours have pass'd I tell with strange relief, And hear her gentle words console, Yet chide, such useless grief. Half glad, half gad, that weary days Which I must know again, Her'wlnBpere&'Hope! HaveEaafchandLove'' Shall -wile of half their pain. I wake, to 'watch, across iny conch The moon-rays faintly gleam, . And ask my soul — ' Can. this indeed be nothing more than dream ?'

AN INDIAN DURBAR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

AN INDIAN DURBAR. One of the most interesting items of Indian news brought us by the last mail is that relating to the visit of the Governor General of India, Sir J. Lawrence, on the 9th November last, to Lucknow, the scene of the celebrated siege in connec tion with the Indian mutiny. We are told that 'in positive splendor, in general effect, in political significance, and as testifying that His Excellency, whether as the representative of the Queen of England and Empress of Hindoostan, or personally, is in as good accord and un derstanding with the Oude subjects of England, and as well liked and as thoroughly appreciated by them as any Governor-General of India has ever been by any section of the population of Tndig. — there was nothing left to wish for.' His Excellency was received at the Luck now Railway Station by the ex-Princes of the Royal family of Oude, some of them very dashing looking fellows ? and the whole making a grand display of cloth of gold, embroidery, jewelled sw...

OYSTER CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

OYSTER CULTURE. The question of artificial oyster culture is one now occupying considerable atten tion in the mother country and on the continent of Europe. The fine oyster beds which, a few years ago, abounded on the English coast have been almost totally -destroyed by the reckless and spendthrift manner in which they were dealt with. Instead of the sale of the oyster being so regulated as not to exceed the natural increase, no adequate restrictions were adopted ; and the con sequence is that oysters in England are now five times as dear as they used to be. From 2d. to 3d. is the price of a 'wild' oyster in London, and this certainly is not to be wondered at when we are told that the enormous quantity of 700,000,000 oysters were de voured in London alone during the year 1864. Since then there has been a de crease in the consumption proportionate with the decrease in the supply. A bed on the Irish coast which produced a year or two back £1,000 per week during the season, and gave em...

CHEDDAR LOAF CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

CHEDDAB LOAF CHEESE. Mr. Harding, Marksburgh., has ad dressed the following letter to an Ayrshire contemporary :— I have been desired by one of our county gentlemen to offer some practical remarks on cheese-making in small farms, with, a view to equalise, as far as may be, the advantages of the larger dairy farmer with, those of the smaller. It is clear that a thick cheese, such as can. be made -from a dairv of 25 or 30 cows, will command a higher price than a' thin cheese .of equal quality. It is also clear that a given quantity of curd made up in one thick cheese -will, when ripe, weigh more than if made into two or three, in consequence of there being a larger portion of surface in the latter than in the former. A thick cheese will also retain its quality, and continue to im prove for a longer time than a thin one, and will command a superior class of purchasers. It is only in exceptional cases that thin cheese made from whole milk will be as remunerative as when a portion or all...

PRINCE ALFRED AND THE VICTORIANS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

PRINCE ALFRED AND THE VIC TORIANS. Prince Alfred does not appear to have pleased the people in Victoria so well as he pleased them here ; at all 'events, he has not won the .admiration of the Aus tralasian. Our contemporary sums up the principal facts of the royal visit, the result being, as far as regards Victoria, honor and glory, but as regards the Prince, very 'common doings' indeed. The Australasian admits that the free banquet was a great failure, but then what else could be expected ? ' The idea was a preposterous one ; its execution self-delegated to incapable hands, and the result 'such as might have been and was anticipated.' But this was the only dull spot in the brilliancy of the general ar rangements. Everything else was mag nificent ; everything else such as no country that had existed as many cen turies as Victoria has decades need have been ashamed of. Thus the Australasian sounds the praises of Melbourne, and, we dare say, deservedly. From the entertainments in hono...

IRISH BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

? ? ? IRISH BUTTER. At a recent agricultural meeting at Lisnaskea, the Earl of Erne made the following remarks : — 'I am sorry to say that Irish butter does not hold the same command of the English markets as it used to do. We have now to compete with the butter from Holland and from France. The Dutch farmers have large dairies, and can make up a tub of butter from one milking, and, therefore, it is all of the same color. That comes over to England, and is preferred to ours. There was not much butter at our show to-day, but it is an extraordinary thing, that there was one tub, said to belong to a woman who had only a single cow, of really first-rate quality. She said she had been making that butter since the month of May, H we could all get our butter made up like that we should do very well. I have heard, however, that it will not do to make butter by piecemeal. The French butter, though not so good as ours, is very clean. They have white tubs, and they put .cotton dipped in salt i...

PROPOSED ARTIFICIAL MANURE MANUFACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

PROPOSED ARTIFICIAL MANURE MANUFACTORY. A prospectus has been issued from Gawler, inviting persons to join in form ing a chemical manure manufactory. The matter is yet in too incipient a state to enable us to report progress, but such an undertaking, in proper hands, would, we think, be ^ery successful. Certainly there is abundant scope for something of the kind, for though it may be a mistake to suppose that manuring the land will cure red rust, yet it cannot be questioned that proper farming demands the return to the soil of those constituent elements which by constant cropping become ex hausted. In this view of the matter, the production of superphosphates, ammo niacal compounds, &c, at a cheap rate would prove a national benefit.
