He explained that at some of their meetings matters were brought on by members of which no notice bad been given, and in consequence of which the paper of the discussion announced for the evening could not be brought on until rather late in tke evening, perhaps to the inconvenience of the gentle man who had taken the trouble to pre pare the paper. He thought it would be well to move a resolution on the matter, and he proposed the following motion: — 'Th...

TRIAL OF SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

TRIAL OF SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WINES. A number of gentlemen, including Dr. Bleas dale, Mr. Claud Farie, Mr. J. G. Knight, &c, met yesterday, at the office of Mr. J. W. Wood, 35, Little Collins-street west, for the purpose of tasting samples of colonial wine manufac tured by Mr. J. Gilkrd, at the Sylvania Vine yards, Norwood, South Australia. The sam ples included four varieties of white and about ten of red wines, the whole being manufactured from grapes grown on Mr. Gifiard's land, at Norwood, about two miles from Adelaide. The first sample tried was a white wine of 1866, made from a mixture of grapes. It was a good sound wine, with a decide.l verdeilho flavor, and was pronounced a good drinkable wine. The next (of the vintage of 1864) was called white Madeira wine, and m the opinion of the majority of those present it wai the best of the coll- ction. It was perfectly free from any fortifying admixture, and its flavor was most delicate and pure. All connoisseurs of light wines w...

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

WALLAROO. [From the Wallaroo Times of Saturday, the 18th instant.] This morning, at half-past 4 o'clock, the quiet and peace of the slumbering township was aroused by the ringing of bells and an alarm of fire. The premises of Mr. H. Dean, the grocer, were soon discovered to be in flames. A quan tity of goods were saved by the spirited efforts of the men, but the greater part of the stock was burned. The loss by fire could not be less than £2,000, and we believe the stock was not entirely covered. The building belongs to Mr. Messent, and we understand is covered by in surance. The Building Society's office was also completely demolished, but all the books were saved, together with the effects of Mr. Gouge, who is in occupation of the same. The origin of the fire is unknown. There was a meeting held at the Cornucopia Hotel, on Friday night, for the purpose of form ing a Committee to secure the return of Mr. David Bower to the ensuing Parliament.

THE LAND QUESTION AND THE COMING ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

THE LAND QUESTION AND THE COMDIG ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I do not think it necessary to apologise for addressing you on the great question of the day (the land question), in which Alex. Hay, Esq., and other members of Parliament are taking a prominent part. It is imperative, on so momentous a subject for South Australia, to consult not merely agriculturists, but others, for it is not alone a farmers' question, it is a colonial, and not only a colonial, 'but an English, Irish, and a Scotch question. It is essentially .English and Scotch in a commercial view, and essentially Irish for the welfare of its lnhm-j no class, and in this last class the three kingdoms have a special interest, and they very properly look for and expect that, in the discharge of our public. duties, we shall keep in prominent notice that they 'have given us the power to make our own laws, not for the benefit of a part at the expense of the whole population, by the creation of any law tending to monopoly...
