THE WEATHER IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
THE WEATHER IN ENGLAND. It is a long while since England has had so severe and trying a February. We have iiad heavy snow storms, hard frosts,hail, sleet, Tain, fog—everything by turns and nothing long." At one time the roads have been so glassy that all the omnibusses left off running in the evening; at another they have had to make their way^through mud ankle deep. One part of the country complains of floods; another—the north of Scotland—of great snow drifts, that; have blocked up roads, and baffled the railway engine. Once or twice we have had xain and snow, thaw and frost in the same day—the slush in half a dozen hours hardened'into iron. It is just one of those periods when it is, after Mark Tapley's fashion, creditable to be jolly. For several weeks the mortality returns have been unusually heavy, but ihen the farmers are. getting an abundant supply of water, the ground is well prepared for their future operations, and the spring is kept back. Throughout Europe the weather ha...
SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
SCOTLAND. The Yelverton marriage case came on again in the Cojrt of Session, Edinburgh, when the Solicitor-General resumed his argument against the proposal to refer the whole matter | to the oath of Major Yelverton The court took time to consider their decision. The fuud for the erection of the Wallace Monument is still £3000 short of the necessary sum. At a meeting in Stirling recently it was resol/ed that the town of Stirling be divided into districts, and that collectors be appointed to gather shilling subscriptions. The Faculty of Procurators propose to ask the Lord Advocate to introduce! in the present ssssion the following brief but yeiy important I bill" Whereas itis expedient that the right; of challenge on the head of deathbed should ' be extinguished, be It therefore enacted, that no. deed, executed or act done fromani} after thepassingof this act shall be subject to challenge onthe head of deathbed."

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
ENGLAND. Her Majesty is said to have had a most miraculous escape fron being crushed to death by the falling of a huge elm tree in the Home park. vHer Majesty was taking an airing on her favourite little Scotch pony, and proceeding through the tall avenue of elms at Windsor known as .Queen Elizabeth's Ride, the pony being led by a gillie, and a groom following at a short distance, when fortunately and providentially, the servant observed one of the large trees falling immediately over her. Majesty. The groom called ont loudly, and her Majesty, made aware of the danger by this timely alarm, escaped being crushed beoeath the tree by a few yards only. The Queen and the Prince of Wales have been pleased to accept copies of Mr J. M'Douall Stuart's work, " Explorations in Australia." The valuable country in North Australia discovered by the author will henceforth be known as u Alexandra Land." A very singular and disgraceful affair has happened at Hull. It seems that among the Jews reside...
MEXICO [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
MEXICO The general state of the country is said not to be in any way encouraging. Whenever the French evacuate a district it is at once occupied by guerillas, who. svrarm in great numbers in the outlying parts of the country, carrying fire and sword wherever they go, if the French papers are to be believed. Most of the ports along the Pacific—Acapulco, Manzinilla, &c.—are said to be in their hands, while the government has to content itself with holding Vera Cruz and two or three more ports on the Atlantic. A revolutionaiy feeling, it is alleged, prevails throughout Mexico. The latest accounts of Juarez report him to have been driven by thei combined French and Mexican force into the province of Chihuahua, where he is said to be reduced to great straits by the Indians, who look upon him as an invader. From Juarez personally the govern ment has little more to fear, at any rate for the present. The first detachment of Austrian troops had arrived at Vera Cruz.
GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
GREECE. Brigandage, which had in a great measure been put down during the latteryears of King Otho, has ou5b more become, as it used to be of old, the scourge of the kingdom. It does not confine itself to remote provinces ; it pene trates to the very neighbourhood of the capital. Prince John of Grlucksburg, the utffcle of the king, summoned M.M. Bulgaris,Mavrocord&lt;jSo, Tricoupi, Miaulis, Christides, Zaitnas, Czauiias, and Condurrot, and asked their advice on the state of thecountry. Theyalmostunanimouslv replied that the dismissal of Count Sponnek was necessary. The ministry complained to the king of this act of his uncle. The king replied that it wks done without his knowledge, and that the ministry enjoyed his confidence. He also directed that his uncle should leave in a few days, an order which was immediately complied with.

The friends of the school, in consequence of the limited chapel accom modation, made arrangements for the; audience to occupy the entire space between the chapel and a building contiguous. "The whole of this space was covered by a canopy of green boughs, which extended from roof to roof. Beneath the grateful shade thus afforded, a large number of worshippers assembled to hear the Word of Life, and listen to the 4 infants' sing.' This service was followed by two others, in each of which the juveniles took an appropriate part. The congregation in the evening was estimated to number one thousand. The collections of the day amounted to £28. Good Friday was the day selected for the m...
TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
TURKEY. j Turkey is taking a bold step in the road of civilisation, namely adopting a* compulsory system of education for ,youth. The only thing that can save Turkey—if salvation, politically speaking, be possible—is to frankly accept civilisation in all its circumstances, and to subordinate the religious element in the structure of her government to' the civil and military exigencies of the day.
SUMMARY FOR THE APRIL MAIL. WALLAROO TIMES Office, April 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
FOR THE APRIL MAIL. Wallaboo Times Office, s April 21. Our last summary for England con veyed the intelligence of tlie termination of tlie smelters' strike, after a continu ance of nearly three months. Shortly after our announcement of the fact, ope rations at the works were resumed, and although at first only eight furnaces were lighted, the number has heen gradually increased until the whole are now in full operation. - Advantage had been fwisely taken of the cessation of work to put the furnaces _Jn thorough repair, and we believe that never since their erection were the Smelting Works in such good order as at the present time. We are glad to say that the men are all working cheerfully and well, and we hope never to have to record a repetition of the strike. The trade of the neighbourhood has greatly revived since the smelters re turned to work, and we hope and believe that a period of unprecedented prosperity is in store for the district. The want of rain is still severely felt,...

PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS. Works of some magnitude and of con siderable public importance have recently been commenced in the district. The! most extensive is the Moonta and Wal- j laroo [Railway, the first sod of which was! turned on Wednesday, March 29, of which j we give a report elsewhere. Another work not so generally known, but also one of great importance to the mines and neigh bourhood of Kadina, is the large drain about to be constructed to carry off the surplus water. Anyone who has seen! the large sheets of water in immediate j proximity with the "Wallaroo and Matta j Mines, jnust be impressed with the idea j that great risk is caused to the public; health by the presence of such a quantity of stagnant water. The mines also are seriously inconvenienced by the soakage of the water through the pervious soil back into the underground workings. It was expected some three years since that the Government would have constructed a drain; in fact, plans and estimates were prepared, and ...
WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
WATER SUPPLY. Fresh water is scarcer now tlian ever it has been before. The small quantity saved from the last rains has been used, and we believe it would be hard to find half-a-dozen buckets of water in any-tank in the district. In the House of Assem bly, the Commissioner of Public Works, in reply to Mr Coglin, has stated thai the' Government would get the Engineer of Waterworks to report upon jbhe question of the supply of water to Kadina, Wal laroo, and Moonta. The inhabitants of the district will doubtless feel grateful to Mr Cogkldst for the prompt action he. has taken in this matter. Although a defeated candidate here, he shows that he does not forget this portion of his old constitu ency. When canvassing the district, he said that even if he should not be elected, he would serve its interests to the utmost of his ability, and he is now honourably redeeming his promise. We are glad, also, to see that Mr Tuxfoed is mindful of the wants of this district. In seconding the adopti...
MOONTA. April 18. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
MOtmTA. (fbom oub own coeeespokdent.) April 18. | " When is it going to rain?" is tlie question jiow put by most of the persons accosting each otherintlie street. If this desideratum does not takeplace soon, we shall be in a pretty predica ment. It is only a very limited quantity that can be obtained from the Mine, and this, may ^ease -any day with the people on the township, intimation having been given, th&t they will n&lt;jt be able to supply much longer the people not at work on the Mine. The quantity that can be got from the Tipara Springs will be quite inade quate to the wants of the people in the township, as there is a great deal of building going on, and a number of horses are needed for the cartage of stone, sand, and! other building materials. The butchers expect they will have to send their horses away, as they cannot obtain sufficient water for . them. The people on the Mine willr then have to come to the town for their meat instead of having it brought ...

M &OSSIP. jjFBOM OUB ADELAIDBXN FBTEN3>:j : Thursday evening, April 520, 1 For some little time past business has been ' exceeding quiet, aid the "arrival of the English . maillias even &iied to ruffle our equanimity. The rraces are exciting great interest among the sporting portion of the community, but beyond this things in general are extremely dull. The delay of the mail Was Occasioned by an accident winch occurred to the steamship. between ; Galle and King George's Sound, and necessitated her staying "at the "Sound. The branch steamer,, W-onga Wonga accordingly brought on the mails of the colonies, and after leaving ours sailed for Melbourne at ten o'clock on the night of the 19 th —beingthe same day as she arrived, the Govern ment having given the Captain permission to sail from Port Adelaide, without notice.

Wallaroo Times. WALLAROO, SATURDAY, APRIL 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
WALLAROO, SATURDAY, APRIL 22. sW^^ereeira hy o^ advertising columns that a meeting is to 3)& heM at Eadina on evening, for the purpose of taking into consideration the desirability of forming a District Council A some what similar movement was set afoot here a few months since, when it waspro posed by some parties that an endeavour should be made to bring the township under the Municipal Gorporations Actv Possibly the measures now being initiated in Kadina may have the effect of reviving the cansideration of this almost forgotten subject. f It must be obvious to any one who gives the matter a moment's reflection, that Port "Wallaroo might in many, ways be greatly benefited by being brought under the regulations either of a District Council or of a Corporation. Of course the township is at present under the Police Act, but that Act in respect to the enforcement of its provisions in matters usually taken cognisance of by a Muni cipal Corporation is virtually a dead letter.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Wallaroo Times and Mining Journal — 22 April 1865
GENERAL IfEWS. Ail the furnaces at the Smelting Works, except those in the refinery, are now consuming coal. The quantity of wood used is therefore 'very small, com pared with the quantity formerly made use of when each furnace consumed about ninety tons, a week. The consumption of coal is something enormous^— the furnaces being supplied with upwards o^p&e. hundred tons per diem. Since the resumptwn,o£: work at the Smelting Works the furnace trapks have made considerable inroads -into the dele* brated coal heap. It is to be regretted that the almost exclusive use of coal as a fuel-should bethie cause of the withdrawal of no inconsiderable jk>r tion of trade from* the township. The annual in flux of a hundred or a hundred and fifty fe&msfcfers to cart wood, was an event which tradesmen had been accustomed to look forward to with much in terest. A great impetus was thus given tothe trade of the township. Tha presence of solarge a number of draymen—many with families...
