STARTLING DISCOVERY IN STAFFORDSHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

STARTLING DISCOVERY IN STAFFORDSHIRE. An extraordinary discovery has just beenjnade in a remote part of Stafford shire. That county at its westsouth west extremity projects out, thrusts itself by a narrow neck some half-dozen miles in length by two miles in breadth at its widest part between Shropshire on the north-west and Worcestershire on the south-east, and at its west-south-west it is crossed by the Severn, which at that point only touches Staffordshire on its way from Shropshire into Worcestershire. The extremity of this tract of land is a wild territory, composed chiefly of two rudely-cultivated coppices belonging, the one to Mi. Woodward, a Liverpool mer chant, but a magistrate of Staffordshire, who resides at Areley Castle, not far off, and*fche other to the Earl of Dudley, and Bewdley Forest joins up to the coppices. At a remote period mining was carried on throughout the tract of land now used for the growth of underwood, but so little are the trades of mining operations ...

THE GREAT WOOL BLOCKADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

THE GREAT WOOL BLOCKADE. Those living at a distance from us cau not realise the enormous injury that the gross system of mismanagement pursued By the Government is doing to the trade of the place and to the traffic of the rail ways. Since the very commencement of the wool season the cry has been '? More trucks I more trucks ! ! ' but up till the present time without effect, as not half sufficient trucks nave come to tane away the quantity of wool arriving. The steamboats are detained for days at the wharf, the orders being that the Btation master is on no account to discharge them until there are trucks sufficient to contain the wool. The consequence is that some thousands of bales of wool now lying on the banks of the various rivers that, with ordinary dispatch to the steamers, would have been brought by them before the navigation ceased, will now have to re main where they are till next season, or eke be conveyed overland to Melbourne, at about treble the cost of transit. The time...

MAXIMILIAN'S REMAINS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

MAXIMILIAN'S REMAINS. A correspondent of the New York Tri bune, at Queretaro, on August 24, states he visited the remains of Maximilian, and found the coffin containing the corpse in aroom in the second storey of the house occupied by Don Munos Ledo. A soldier was guarding the door, but any one was admitted, especially if they were willing to pay him a few reals. The apartment bore the appearance of once having been a store room, and was very dark and extremely filthy. The coffin was in the centre resting npon the rude wooden benches. It was covered with black cloth, and adorned with a cheap quality of gold lace, while the top had a false cover, the opening of which revealed three glasses, through, which the remains of the ill-fated Emperor were dimly visible. He was dressed in a blue coat with military buttons, dark blue panta loons, and heavy cavalry boots. His hands were covered with a pair of white soiled gloves. His mouth and eyes were partially open, revealing'-his teeth and t...

THE Chronicle and Mail. SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1868. SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 25 January 1868

- *i'H h: SATUia)A5r, JANUARY 25, 1868. SEED WHEAT. We abe informed that farmers are now very generally selling their wheat for whatever it will fetch, on the assumption that the Government will furnish them with seed for the next season. We hope this report is exaggerated. Knowing, as we well do; the sad calamity which has over taken a large number of South Australian: farmers, we need not say that our best wishes are with them, ~ and that we shall : rejoice to see anything done that can really benefit them. But we do not want them to be deceived ; and we are bound in common honesty to state, -that we do not think that the Government are very warm on the subject of giving or lending seed wheat. We may be mistaken, ijut we think we are right; and therefore give our country readers the benefit of our private information. As far as we can judge, the Government have not yet de cided to procure seed wheat for the farmers ; and it is therefore a matter of great importance that those agri...
