THE PRINCE'S VISIT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

THE PRINCE'S VISET. TO THE EDITOR. Six — It is very kind and loyal of Mr. A. tenne to stand up for the Prince, and to de nounce the Melbourne Press for their irreverent ftnniflfng of royalty ; but there is another side to a question which I beg you will allow me to put before you readers. It is evident that the Duke has not left a very good impression behind him in Victoria. Since his departure some of the newspapers have spoken out very plainly, and ugly rumors are afloat which have somewhat detracted from that abnost superstitious feeling of loyalty which some persons cherish towards everything - belonging to the English Crown. It is said that the Duke fell into bad hands in Melbourne — that certain gentlemen there, who assumed to be his judicious mentors, showed a great desire to introduce him to some of the more recondite scenes of Yictorian life, which were not likely to help either his morals or his manners, and that His Boyal Highness saw more thati tin English Prince, coinin...

CITY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

etTY GOSSIP. B* A MIn AiouT Tows. I hear that the changes in the Givil Service' have given pretty general satisfaction, Mr- Hiichln &M Mr. Jos. Boothby have distin guished themselves &y their devotedness to their duties, and have well deserved their pre^ mo'ion. The general feeling is that the (Jo vernment have in these appointments carried out a right principle — that of promoting gentle men who have been long in the service and have given satisfaction. Other things being equal, a preference should always he given ta those who have earned promotion, as the faithful carrying out of this principle willdo much to raise the tone of the Civil Service. I hear that the Go vernment mean, during the recess, to overhaul the whole question of the Civil Service, with a view to the reduction of departmental expenses, which are now too large for the resources and revenue of the colony. This is said to cause a fluttering amongst some few incapables who fondly thought they had feat...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. — : ? ♦ The Ruahine, with the Panama mail, arrived in Sydney at 8 p.m. on the 31st ultimo, bringing dates from London to the 15th Decem ber and from New York to the 16th. The intel ligence is of rather an exciting character, and will cause the arrival of the English mail with fuller particulars to be looked for with some anxiety. We refer our readers to our tele graphic columns for particulars. By private advices we learn that a fire broke out upon the Hummocks Run on Tues day. It was got under the same evening, but again broke out on Wednesday morning, and burned the greater part of the day, destroying about 30 square miles of summer country. The loop-line between the Dry Creek and Port Adelaide will be formally opened to-day, and a special train will be run on the occasion. Numerous invitations have beeu issued by the Government. The. train will leave the Adelaide Station at L30, thence pro ceeding to the Dry Creek Junction, thence to the Port, and back to Dry Cr...

THE PRINCE AND HIS FRIENDS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

TTTR PRINCE AND HIS FRIENDS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— The replies to the Hon. .Eliot Xorke's criticism on Victorian pronunciation are, in my opinion, somewhat illogical. As given by the Australasian and your correspondent 'Z,' they appear to be three in number. That the Hon. EKot Yorke does not write grammatically himself; that Lord Newry has misbehaved; and that the Prince should have been accompa nied by a master of ceremonies, to prevent the risk of offence to colonial susceptibilities. If the pronunciation of the Victorian mag nates at all resembles that of many of our public men, I think the Hon. Equerry had very good grounds for his strictures, I myself heard, a Minister of the Crown list night, at the Hotel Europe, put the unfortunate letter 'JJI.' !^.^®*?Et^[6Jn?;^iost'ttas?e™^y fashion, dragging'it In where lt'woul3.TaiH 'have Tem-iinod; in{ axodest'rptireirfefit, ^amr-femorse-; lesslyfdis6arding Hi -when it-hau, According- to Walker, a full right-to appear.

THE FAREWELL SERMON. On Sunday evening the Rev. Mr. Russell preached his farewell sermon in St. Paul's Church. The spacious edifice was crowded to the doors, and the service was in every respect an affecting one. The rev. gentleman took for his text 1st Corinthians xiiL, 8-10, and after giving a clear and interesting exposition of the passage, dwelling especially upon the supe riority of love to miraculous endowments, and upon the incompleteness of all earthly know ledge, he concluded by referring to the Holy Communion, a«.d to the hymn for those at sea. The number of communicants who remained to celebrate the Sacrament was 127.

MOSQUITO PLAINS; With the exception of building operations times are dull here, though when the land sale, takes place business will no .doubt become .flourishing. ' Dr. Wheeler,, from Adelaide,' is here on a visit. He has' kindly promised, to give an Institute lecture on Monday — subject 'Circulation of the blood.' The valuable ser vices of the doctor have been already sought by many of the townspeople, Dr. Gunning being away at present. Dr. Wheeler, I believe, came here chiefly with the intention of haying a few weeks' rest from his professional duties, but I am afraid that he will be disappointed in ob taining that rest, as he is sought -after by so many.— I understand- that Mr. McDonnell, of Reedy Creek, has bought the Globe Hotel, and will open it ahorfly.— The weather is very pleaBant. - -

THE POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

THE POLICE FORCE. What with Parliamentary debates, special Commissions, arid official reports, the public have been' kept pretty well in formed on police matters generally ; but it is possible, even in connection with this subject, to break new ground, and a special account of the management aud condition of the troopers' horses may not be altogether uninteresting. At the date of the last quarterly report there were 196 police horses, and this number has not been- materially altered since.' Twenty-six are in the metropolitan stables,' and the remainder are at the different stations in the country or at grass. To describe the system by which the animals are kept in efficiency we will begin at head quarters. The barracks front the south, the back of them overlooking the North Park Lands. They are ample and commodious, in the form cf a square. The officers' and men's quarters are on the south side, the east and west sides being taken up with men's quarters, store-rooms, open sheds, &am...
