The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 March 1869
tt &lt;a FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1869: IT is not generally known through South Australia that Clare and the surrounding district, west, north, and south, is the granary of South Aus tralia. Let a man go where he will in the south or south-east, he will not find land better adapted for agricul tural purposes than the surrounding districts of Clare. At one time people said grain would not grow in the northern districts; but time and ex perience teaches wisdom, and they now say there is no place in South Australia equal to the northern dis tricts. Mount Gambierr formerly called the garden of South Australia, has not one-third of the good agricul tural land that the northern districts possess. There are a few miles of good land about the Mount, but go a few miles on either side, and nothing is seen but a barren wilderness in habited only by kangaroos that have been driven out of the fertile spots to make room for the farmer. We do not wish to say anything against Mount Gambier; we mer...

ADELAIDE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 9. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 12 March 1869
ADELAIDE. (FBOU OUB OWN COEEESPOKDENT.) March 9. Since the date of your last Adelaide letter, nothing of any special interest has transpired in the metropolis, the country districts not? having their time of it in agricultural shows and the like. The usually excitable feeling shown by the citizens at an election time has not-even with the extraordinary list of can didates before the country-produced a single meeting, and this et&te of things can only he accounted for on the ground that really good men will not come forwarg to bury their talents in the Legislative Council Chamber, and the electors do not care to encourage a burlesque on the representation of the people. That such would be the case were certain of ibe candidates now proposed returned is seen by all; and some of the would-be ho&orables ought to feel grateful to a tender-hearted public for not affording them an opportunity of further lowering themselves in the estima tion of men of common sense by an att...
