District News. Orroroo. PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

District News. Orroroo. PUBLIC MEETING. In consequence of a resolution passed by the local branch of the Farmer s Association a public meeting was held in the Institute Hall on Monday even ing last to consider the District Councils Bill now before Parliament. Mr. Enos Copley was voted to the chair and concisely explained the object for which they were assembled and called upon Mr. Robert Banebrick to move the first resolution which was as follows: -" That this meeting views with alarm the hasty manner in which a measure of so .much importance as the District Councils Bill is being rushed through the house without giving the country an opportunity of expressing an opinion on the subject." The mover then spoke at some length on the subject and pointed out the necessity of every one having an opportunity of expressing an opinion on the measure which would add so cons;derably to the taxation. He also said it would be very unjust to stop the subsidy, especially in such a large district a...

Gladstone. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Gladstone. At the meeting of the Mutual Im provement Society Ja?t Friday evening an interesting paper on " Early English Literature" was read by Mr. C. Maley. Akhough the attendance was small the members present warmly appreciated Mr. Malev's effort and it was resolved that the paper should be printed. The society meets weekly, Parliamentary business being taken on one week and elocution, essays, etc. on the following one. An opportunity is thus given to our young men to spend one evening weekly in a pleasant and profitable way. The Soeiety has recently become affiliated with the South Australian Literary Societies' Union. The team which was. sent by the Gladstone Rifle Company has not been at all successful in the matches at Port Adelaide, being at the bottom of the list. The weather on Monday lasi was cloudy and threatening, but only eighty points*fell. To-day (Thursday) the sky is again overcast, and we hope for a good downpour, which would now prove acceptable.

Blackrock. August 16th. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Blackrock. August 16th. This district is still being favored with plenty of rain and the country is thoroughly soaked, but owing to the unusually cold weather experienced, the crops and the grass are not making much headway, . but taking all into consideration the crops in this district are looking splendid, especially those in the hills; those on the plain are not quite so forward. There is some wheat in this Hundred two feet high. Grass is growing slowly. The stock is in good condition. Fallowing and tree planting is the main work now of the farmers.

The Misery of Over-populated London. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Tlie Misery of Over-popu lated London* The population of Great Britain is at the present moment being added to at the rate of at least 1,000 persons a day, or, in the words of the Registrar General, " it receives every ten years an accession equal to the population of London." In connection with this enormous growth two points deserve to be noted. The disproportion of the sexes, in itself a serious-evil, is slowly but steadily increasing. The distribu tion of the population is undergoing a sensible change. The towns (except were some special cause is at work) are everywhere growing. The rural popu lation is either standing still or actually diminishing. The metropolis alone receives every week an addition of more than 1,000 persons, and the cry is " Still they come I" In the case of London and of other large cities the " natural increment" is swelled by the crowds who pour into them from every part of the world. Most of these im migrants are unskilled workpeople, or bring what craft...

ORROROO CHRONICLER AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. ^FRIDAY, AUGUST 26th, 18S7. i6' TEROWIE AND THE LOOPLINE. The question of the loop line appears to be the all-important topic with our Terowie friends and in their zeal for such a work of " public convenience" minor .affairs appear to have been forgotten. The "Terowie Enterprise" in a recent issue goes into elaborate arithmetical calculations re the cost of construction of such a line aiid the enormous amount of money that would be saved to the colony annually by this means, the result of their calculations proving, to their satisfaction, that the net saving on haulage on the present service via Peters burg would, in one yecr, cover the cost of constructing the loop line! Evidently the writer thinks he has made a good case, that the matter is, or ought to be, settled.after such convincing arguments, and concludes his article with the remark,-u our supporters of the loop line interested in the carriage of bullion, &c., from the silv...

Press Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Press Opinions. " PETERSBURG TIMES." - We have received the first copy of a new weekly, the Petersburg Times, Orroroo Chroni cle, and Northern Advertiser. "Why should not Petersburg, which is the key and centre of a large district, have its newspaper? Why not, when there is a "gratifying list of local names amongst the advertisers," when the town is so flourishing that "there is not a dwelling of any sort to let in the place," and when the editor can provide sixteen columns of reading matter, a good pro portion of which is purely local? Amongst the special objects which the Times will advocate are the extension of the broad gauge from Terowie to Petersburg,liberal land laws,economical government, and increased municipal subsidies. The Times is published by Mr. R. M. Osborne, and promises to be a creditable addition to the provincial | Press. -S. A. Register.

Selected Poetry. UNFORGOTTEN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Selected Poetry. UNF0RG0TTE2J. I ken the auld grey hills are there I climbed in youthful days, I ken there's aye the scented air O' heather on the braes. The burn aye sings the auld time sang Adoon the mossy glen; An' glints the leafy trees am wig Far frae the haunts o' men. The siller trout, in sportive ranks, Are loopin' still as free As ween I sate upon the banks O' that bricht, mimic sea. The mavis sings as lood an' sweet, The bluebell nods as fair If man mic'it be a bairn an' greet, I'd greet that I'm no' there. O, dear auld Scotland-doubly dear, Like a' joys lost and gane I daurna' think, when night is near, That ye were ance my aia ; For I micht dretm o' fl .01 an' linn, An' then my heart wad yearn, An' murmur, till it grew a sin, For days than ne'er return. Land o* the loved, I ne'er may see Your mountains or your dew, But I has brocht alang wi' me A keepsake, leal an true A bunny lass, trained tae nan arts, Wo'ed on your broomy braes ; Sae, while we live, ye'll hae two hear...

Episcopal Church. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Episcopal Church, " And Ahab said to Elijah, hast thou foand me,0 mine enemy ? And he answered, I have found thee; because thou hast sold thy self to work evil in the sight of the Lord." I. Kings xxi. chapter, 20 Ji verse. The following is the substance of a sermon delivered in the Episcopal ; Church by the Rev. W. S. Hopcraft, from the above text:- Naboth the Jezreelite was dead and Ahab had; come down to take possession of the vineyard for-which he had so intently longed. He, no doubt, congratulated himself that the difficulties connected with annexing the property to the royal estate had been cleared away, for as Naboth had'been stoned by the people as a common blasphemer, his land was, according to the laws of the time, handed over to the royal estate, and the king therefore felt that it was legally his. Suddenly Elijah came upon the scene,and the king stopped in the per ambulation of his newly gained estate -feeling that there was a man who TOfald see through all his siu, and w...

Mining Notes. [BROKEN HILL TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887

Mining: Kolcs. [BROKEN HILL TIMES.] The week's run from the Broken Hill Proprietary Company is represented as follows; Ore treated . . 1,137 tons. Bullion . . . 267 tons. Silver . . . 42,043 oz. There is little change to note at the mine. The comparatively pear return for the week is probably due to the fact that there has been a suspension of work in the lower levels from Jamieson's and Broadribb's shafts. The heavy flow of water into the former rendered the delay necessary; whilst the cutting down of Brodribb's Shaft prevented active mining operations being continued there* Work will, however, be resumed in Jamieson's Shaft to-day. There is no special feature of change in any of the underground workings, all of them preserving a very good appearance. The five smelters are running smoothly, and all the machinery is working well. A.t Block 14 the sinking of the main shaft has been resumed, and good pro - gess is being made with the north shaft, after a long stretch of unsatisfactory...
