INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. [From our Special Reporter.] Tuesday, January 21. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
INTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTOBTA. f From our Sneci&l Reporter. 1 Tuesday, January 2L The business of the past week has not been large, and has been confined to transactions in a few staple articles. The news about the crops herehas been conflicting, and consequently un reliable When the sickle was first put in the prospects were pretty good in many districts, and the early crops weie got in during fnvorable weather: but-durins: the past ten days a change took place, and the weather has been quite winterly, heavy rains with cold winds having quite discolored most -of the standing crops. The demand for wheat has: been very brisk of late, but from the small quantities coming forward transactions are not numerous. Fiour is dull of sale, and there are but few enquiries for it. Prices are now too high for shipment, and the home trade is not brisk. Wheat may be quoted at 6s. 9d., a price at which small lots have been sold during the week. Sales of flour are reported at up to £15 ...

THE PRINCE'S VISIT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
THE PRINCE'S VISIT. TO THE EDITOB. R-ir— var from being a flatterer of Royalty, I cannot suppress my indignation at the writer in the Australasian, quoted in your last issue, nor can I resist the temptation to say a word in defence of Prince Alfred, and on behalf of your readers. Your readers remember that while Prince Alfred was yet in Adelaide, the telegrams from Melbourne stated that Mr. L. L. Smith, out of charity, proposed to feed the poor people of Melbourne in Paddy's Market, in honor of Prince Alfred's visit to Victoria. Thererore a banquet to the poor people was expected, and not to the Prince. I read the Argus with great attention at our Institute at the time, but do not remember that in the programme it was said the Prince should take a par* in their play, «»uu aci. xiamiet at tne zoological Garden. Prince Alfred, guided by the Melbourne news papers, expected evidently to have a quiet look at the banquet, without being made the idol of worship cast out of Mr. L. L. Smith'...
THE PRINCE AND THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
THE PRINCE AND THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH. ro THE EDITOR. Sir— From a paragraph that appeared a few days ago in the Advertiser it would seem that the Duke of Edinburgh does not much admire the pronunciation of the Victorians. Well, let us hope that the gentle hint given them by the equerry ,will not be lost upon them, and that in future they will pay a little more atten tion to the matter. But while we are laughing at our neighbors we musi not forget that we South Australians are not quite perfect in the use of our mother tongue. That a very decided and far from pleasant twang is rapidly making its appearance m the speech of our native-born youths any one with an ordinary ear can easily satisfy himself. To confine myself to two faults at present (and if you don't object I may, perhaps, pursue the subject on another occasion), the barrel-organ itself does not grate upon my ear like the real South Australian pronunciation of the diphthongs 'ou' and 'ow' where they rhyme with 'cow,' and of th...
THE EARLY-CLOSING MOVEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
THE EARLY-CLOSING MOVEMENT. TO THE EDITOB. fc-ir — In the enlightened age we have the Erivilege of living in I am surprised that so ttle attention is paid to the healthy develop ment of the human system by employers of labor in the retail grocery and drapery establish ments in the city. I was much pleased, Sir at seeing a leading article from you on the ' Early Closing,' for which please accept my sincere thanks, and I may venture to say the thanks of a large portion of our retail emploves. It is a step in the right direction, and one which I trust will not be allowed to drop for want of energy j for, Sir, I believe the majority of our business men would gladly close at say 6 o'clock the year round were it not for a few petty shop keepers, whose feelings for those in their employ is like their conscience, long since departed Many a Saturday night have I returned to my home after 16 hours' work on that day, and re tired to rest completely worn out by fatigue i?'lh Z?^™^ fOT de™ti°nal...
WORKHOUSES AND ASYLUMS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
WORKHOUSES AND ASYLUMS. Some tim& ago the public were very 3nuch startled by some extraordinary re 'velations respecting the state of the in stitution known as the Grace Darling Industrial School at Brighton, and the horrible condition of its inmates. It is certainly no consolation to knew that the abuses there existing in what is in tended as one of xjut benevolent institu tions are more than matched in the old ^country, but such is the case. The Saturday Review says that in the case ©f -one -workhouse in the old country the guardians act on the principle of 'curing pauperism from off the face of the earthy' and there is a painful similarity between the Farnham Workhouse and the Brighton School. When the miserable state of this last-named institution was exposed it was shown that more than half the children were on the sick list, and that for six months they had been dying at the rate of . 18 per cent, per an num, so that in five or six years the whole lot 'would have been ...
NO MORE CONVICTS FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
NO MORE CONVICTS FOR AUS TRALIA. The degrading compact by which the Western colony attained the unenviable notoriety of a penal settlement is now dissolved. By soliciting the Home Go vernment to make her territory the depository of British convictism Western Australia has infixed upon herself a stigma that the lapse of a century will be scarcely sufficient to eradicate. Con tent to sink to this low depth for a transi tory and doubtful advantage, she will have engrafted upon future generations an intolerable evil that will long survive the termination of the disgraceful con tract and the receipt of its money con sideration. To the earnest appeals of this and the other free settlements, it was unwillingly conceded by the home authorities that transportation to Australia should finally cease with the close of the year 1867. Accustomed for the last eighteen years to depend upon the extraneous aid of a large expenditure by the Imperial Go verament, the majority of the Western colonists l...
HACKHAM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
HACKTTAM. Some few are talking about the future mem bers of Parliament for Noarlungaj but it would not be, perhaps,' very fair ' to give particular*. One thing is certain, that the old members, if they put up again, -will meet with rival candi dates, though some have gone so far as to say that the electors, as a whole, should just stop at their respective homes on the days of elec tion and record their votes in the flames, unless new blood is brought into the field.: — The ex pected meeting of farmers seems to be shelved, out for what reason no one can telL The fact is, there is much more talk and play than work and 'money. —Men out of employment are on the increase, and work, when to -be had. is only for short periods^-odd job3, but nothing permanent. — Money, -like the wheat, will become rusty — -corroded by not being used. Confidence in business is very low indeed, and one ugly officer — ,not -the gentleman filling the office — seems to nave a little to do, instead of as was once...

*?? ? ' — --_-?- - _ j . l COUNTRY NEWS; [From our Country Correspondents.] : - TlT.TNTIVrAW MINE. JandIky 20. The weather here for the last we .'k has been much, more like winter than summer, so much so that the oldest inhabitant does not remember anything like it. — Our .. mine is employing a great many hands at present, and indeed the aspect of the township altogetber is very lively. There are no less than 12. dwelling-houses in course of erection here at present. — One of our aborigines was buried here on last Saturday, . 'witnessed by many of the residents ; of course the usual ceremonies on Jsuch occasions were ? performed. — Our Roman Catholic fellow towns people were.. -visited on last Sunday by the Rev.

Not only the Catholics, but persons of all denomi . -nations, are always glad of his. arrival. CJ...
VICTOR HARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
VICTOR HARBOR. For nearly a week past we have had strong winds from S. W, and S., but on the morning of Friday last, January 17, the culminating point of southerly weather seemed to be reached, and at midday, when the wind veered to S.E.j Victor Harbor, which had severely felt the heavy sea from the southward and westward, began to wake up to a sea pitching direct into the harbor, and all work had. to be suspended as far as loading or unloading was concerned ; and, ' happy thought,' in the afternoon some one suggested that the Percy, lifeboat, had not had a trial in severe weather at this station. The rare chance was not to be lost, so up went the flag at ihe Harbor-Master's signal staff, and in a very short time a crew for the Rescue was must-red, thus — Harbor -Master Tait (cox swain), Jas. Long, FL Woodward, H. Parker, W. D. Bottomley, J. McDonald, W. Neil, R. Lawson, J. Dingles, C. Chambers, W. Robinson, M. Desse, and two othe s whose names 1 have not learnt, forming the crew. T...

THE RISE OF KING THEODORE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868
THE RISE OF KING THEODORE. The character and the career of this remarkable potentate are equally strange. He unites in himself the moBt opposite and conflicting qualities, and his public conduct is a series of the most glaring inconsistencies. The strangest combina tion of religious zeal and sanguinary pas sion, of military genius and childish pride, of political wisdom and mental obliquity, his character has as manv, sides as the K6h-i-Noor. Sometimes he appears before us as a sort of eastern Charlemagne, restoring by bis military genius and sin gular moral power the ancient empire of Ethiopia. Then we get a glimpse' of him as the stern destroyer of the feudal system, and the wise reformer of the social economy of his country. At ano ther time we see him in the character of a Christian Mahoniet, spiced with a dash of Joe Smith, believing himself specially sent by God to spread Christianity at the point of the sword, and particularly to drive the Turk out of Jerusalem. Then, again, ...
