JNTERCOLONIAL COMMERCIAL. VICTORIA. The Argus of the 25th December says:— ' The market for breadstufEs on the 24th was very firm, although the only transaction of which we heard was the purchase of 14,000 bags of Tasmanian wheat, the entire cargo ex Hector (which arrived yesterday from Launeeston). It was bought on Sydney account, at 6s. 6d. per quarter (being a good sample) on short ternis, and the Hector proceeds to that port, having taken in a small quantity of flour in place of some oats discharged. There is no alteration in flour, which is firm and in good demand, and may be quoted at £17 for Victorian.' Melbourne Stock -Report. — Mr. Charles Brown reports:— 'Fat Cattle.— No. 970.

A NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Permit me to point out a horrible efflu vium arising from the drain running through Rundle-street into William-street, Kent Town, opposite Smith's brewery. I presume all kinds of .filth must be thrown into it, to cause this not only disagreeable, but unhealthy odour.

POST-OFFICE REGULATIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

POST-OFFICE REGULATIONS. -' TO' THE EDrrOB. - Sir— WiU you be Mud enough to inform me, through the medium of your columns, in what townships throughout South Australia letters are delivered ? Am I, or am I not correct in pelieving that letters are delivered only in Adelaide, north and south, Port Adelaide and Gawler? Are they delivered in the suburbs of Adelaide, Unley, Mitcham, Norwood, Kensing ton, Bowden, and surrounding townships ? In my opinion there is room for great improve ment in the regulations of our Post-Office. I think you should not pay the same price to send a letter from Bundle to Hindley-street, as from Adelaide to Mount Remarkable, or any other remarkable township the like distance. It seems to me remarkable that for such a period of time this should have been tolerated. In New York, for instance, a fetter^ can. be: sent under h-oz. for one cent, to any part of that city, but here we pay 2d. from any one place to the other, providing it is inland.

FOUNDATION OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

FOUNDATION OF THE COLONT. The times must be very dull indeed when we fail to keep up the Christmas holidays, and among them the one that should be ? the most religiously o^erved by every true colonist — the anniversary of the day when good old Governor Hindmarsh, under the old gumtree, proclaimed the establishment of another dependency of that empire 'upon which the sun never setsi' The real anniversary falling on Saturday, Monday, December 30, was chosen as the day of commemoration. The morning opened very cold, with a strong southerly wind, and a flying scud promising a rough day. Between 9 and 10 o'clock King William-street began to assume ah animated appearance with the numerous 'busses and other vehicles thronging in for passengers, while the traffic was increased -by vans and carriages, con taining various picnic parties bound for the seaside or the valleys and creeks of our beautiful range of hills. Flags, banners, and cheering all proclaimed that these parties were on pleasu...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

MINING INTELLIGENCE. The half-yearly general meeting of the Talisker Mining Company, advertised to he held on Tuesday, December 31, was adjourned in consequence of there h- ing no quorum present. The report of Captain Price, dated December 26, was laid on the table. It spoke in favorable terms of the present workings of the mine, and of the operations carried on at the various levels. He remarked that the ' mine looks much better than it has for a length of time. The late discovery at the 43 fathom level speaks well for the ultimate success of the mine.' In reporting as to future operations be recom mended that the engine-shaft should be sunk at once, as it was the mainspring of all their future operations. The whole of the machinery was reported as working satis factory. As regarded the engine for crushing and stampiug the report said, ' When we begin, to raise ore in large quantities it -will be requisite to have a larger cylinder for this engine, as also a new boiler.' It also re...

THE GAWLER AND WILL ASTON FARMERS' SPECIAL COMMITTEE. The first meeting of this.

FRANCE AND PRUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

FRANCE ASD PRUSSIA. .Notwithstanding the friendly .relations said to exist between the French Em peror and the monarch of the newly con solidated kingdom of Prussia, it is quite possible that those two great rival powers will come into hostile collision. Napo leon cannot, with safety to his throne, J abandon his position as chief arbitrator J of the affairs of the Continent, and yield the supremacy without a struggle. France, since the establishment of the second empire, has assumed and main tained the position of champion of Europe, and she can hardly take her place on equal terms with Austria and Italy without doing great violence to the national pride. Even should the people think, it expedient to surrender the post of honor, what will the army say ???'.. Will that army with the names of Austerlitz and Jena, and a hundred other records of i - ? . glory inscribed upon its banners, be con tent to rest in ignoble inaction, and see its. eagles overshadowed by those of its bitterest f...

DRAINAGE AND VENTILATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

DRAINAGE AND VENTILATION. . FFrom the Builder. 1 The sodden ground of an undrained town breeds fever and malaria. Seldom is the wisdom of : the authorities sufficient to enable them to. foresee this. An epi demic comes upon them, and they cast about for a remedy, and use a great deal of chloride of lime-— the best disinfectant or rotten, organizations; call out the doctors to cure the infected persons ; and ge« ready the , machinery of burial. The atmosphere is one great dissemi nator of. health or of disease'; and it is to the want of attention to the ventilation of the drains that the want of success in. many attempts to im prove the health of towns is to be attri buted. . To leave '. the street gullies open is to poison the people in the streets. To leave the house-sinks untrapped is to bring poison into the houses. To venti late the sewers bv shafts over them in the streets is a clumsy and imperfect device ; and to ventilate hy means of the rain-water pipes is not much better, u...

A TEN YEARS' SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

A TEN YEARS' SLEEP. In the Hickinan (Kentucky) Courier the following letter appears regarding the strange case of a sleeping girl, which is creating considerable interest in Ame rica : — 'At your request I will give some of the particulars of the sleeping wonder, Miss Susan C. Godsa. I visited her for tne first time on the 27ttf of June last. First she is always in motion (something like sleeping-shaking palsy). She awoke a few minutes after our arrival, and re mained so eight minutes, during which time she took a mouthful of refreshments. She said nothing unless it was in answer to such questions as were put to her by some of our party, which she did with sufficient clearness. Herphysical develop ment is good enough ; complexion sallow ; hair black ; head large, and well developed. The other parts of her body are not so well developed; her hands and feet are very small ; tihe is of medium height. While I was putting questions to her she went to sleep; in.lhe twinkliner of aneve. sm...

LUCIFER MATCHES AND DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

LUCIFER MATCHES AND DES TRUCTION OF PROPERTY. [From the Mark Lane Express. \ The Secretary of one. of the assurance offices reports a serious state of things in the Eastern counties, arising from the wanton or careless use of lucifer matches. He writes to the Suffolk Chronicle — ' Aitnougn tne narvest may -not yet oe fully gathered in some of the northern districts, it may be inferred from the various reports already sent in that the yield of wheat in the British isles may fall short by something like 15 or 20 per cent, of an average crop. In face of this deficiency it is to be regretted that the Eastern counties — and especially the eastern division of those counties — so justly celebrated for their superiority in farming operations, should incur the responsibility of reducing the. short yield of wheat and other grain by such a de plorable consumption as that arising from the wilful firing of stacks through the careless use, or misuse, of lucifer matches. Since the gathering of the...

OUR SHEEP. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

OUR SHEEP. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Allow me' a little space in -your valuable paper to ask the following question :— The Family Herald for. October last asserts that the Australias contain 300,000,000 (three hundred millions) sheep ; is that a fact? Surely we can not support on an average 100 sheep to every square mile in these early days of our adopted land. Hoping you or some of your readers will reply as to the 'veracity or. otherwise of this statement, I am, Sir, &c., DOUBTING. [We presume the 300,000,000 is a misprint for 30,000,000. In 1865 the sheep in the various Australian colonies were returned as follows : — Victoria, 8,835,380 ; New South Wales, 8,132,511 ; South Australia, 3,779,308 ; Queens land, 6,810,005; Tasmania, 1,736,540. Total, 29,293,744.]

THE SOUTH PARA GOLDFIELDS. TO THE ? EDlTOBL Stt — I see from your paper that there is gold to be found at Soutb^, 'Para in good paving quantities. I trust it is not like the former re ports of. the Barrier Ranges. Being given to understand that a party is about to start and try their luck, we trust you -will en lighten_us and the public too m reference to it. Is it on Crown lands or private property? can any one go to work at once? are. the pre sent_ diggers paying a licence?. By giving full particulars in next Saturday's paper you will be . obliging me and a good many others. I am, Sir, &c., AN ENQUIRER. [As regards the Barrier Ranges, our corre spondent will, remember that we repeatedly warned the public against going, and had our advice been taken much loss and suffering would have been avoided. With, reference to the Para goldneld, it is private property, *nd consequently the party that are about to start had better make all necessary enquiries before they go.;— Ed.]

THE MINERAL WEALTH OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

THE MINERAL WEALTH OF SOUTH JVTTSTRALTA. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Having perused the leading article which appeared in the Chronicle of the. 28th instant on the subject of the existence of gold in South Australia, I beg to add my testimony to the truth of the statements contained in that article as io the probable existence, not only of gold, but of other valuable mineral deposits in various localities in this colony. From the Burra northwards and north-eastwards, for more than 200 miles, even to the Barrier Ranges, the country is one mass of mineral wealth, requiring only a systematic search, vigorously and perseveringly conducted in spite of all obstacles, to develop its hidden resources. I believe firmly that gold does exist in that vast region, and not gold only, but probably coaL Copper has been found here and there, but its indications have never yet been perse veringly followed up, else would mines out rivalling the Burra, the Moonta ^nd Wallaroo, and the Blinman mines in the Nor...

KING EGBERT AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

KING EGBERT AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. TO THE EDITOB. ? Sir — The writer of the communicated article to your Christmas readers informed us that the present royal family of England are lineally descended from King Egbert, the. first sole King of England. As an Englishman I would like to know how he makes this out, for I have always believed that the reigning family in England for the last 150 years were Germans, and that, putting aside the accident of his birthplace, the Duke of Edinburgh is simply German'both on father and mother's side, and that he has not a drop of English blood in his veins ; and I for one can never look upon him as an Englishman in the true sense of the word. I can well understand that in the first in stance the family could not help their German origin, and this I for one would hive forgiven had they persistently endeavored to naturalise and Anglicise themselves by intermarrying with the high nobility of England, Scotland, and Ireland. But this has not been don...

THE FUTURE OF THE COPPER TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

THE JflJTOJfcE OF THE COPPEU o TRADE. At least three-fourths of the copper ore -of the United Kingdom ib smelted in the district -of : Swansea, and up to the past year or two that port has enjoyed, consequently, almost a monopoly in the inmortation «£ copper ore, regulus, &c. Upon tile banks of the River Tawe gigantic smelting works have been erected, employing thousands of hands, and paying almost fabulous amounts in the shape of wages, &c, the works of Messrs. Vivian and Son, Grenfell & Go., Forster, Wil liams, & Co., and others, being by for the most extensive in the kingdom. _So far as Swansea is concerned, therefore, it may be said that the prosperity of the port and. town mainly depends lipon the copper works, and the inhabitants therefore quietly Bubjmit to the deleterious effects of the smoke consequent upon the sub stantial quid pro quo they receive in the shape of the thousands of pounds an nually 'expended amongst them by the: workmen, empl...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 4 January 1868

MISCELLANEOUS. In future no messages containing figures are to be received by Indo-European telegraph unless they also specify the stocks to which they refer. About 40.000 lbs. of fossil ivory, that is to say, the tusks of at least 100 mammoths, are bartered for every year in New Siberia. As many as ten. tusks have been founl lying to gether in. the Tundraj weighing from 150 lbs. to 300 lbs. each. Notwithstanding the enormous j amount already taken away, the stores of fossil \ ivory do not appear to diminish. Sulp'huret of carbon, which is now produced at a cheap rate, has recently been employed to extract the residual oil from olive cake and the oil from tbe soapsuds of the silk factories. This liquid has a remarkable power of dissolving fatty matters, just as quicksilver dissolves gold; and it may be easily separated from them with out loss by distillation.
