THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. We alluded in our last issue to the con templated changes in the southern mail service, and we are now in a position to give further and definite information on the subject. The new arrangement is expected to be brought into operation on Saturda3T next, the 4tli of August. Instead of the mails remain ing as at present at Wiilunga for the night, they will be forwarded from Willunga within a few minutes of their arrival there from Adelaide. They will thus arrive at Port Elliot at from 11 to 12 o'clock p.m., accord ing to the time aliowed for the journey, and the return mail will be despatched from Port Elliot in time to catch the morning mail from Willunga to Adelaide. We confess that upon the first blusli of this proposal we overrated the inconveniences and very much underrated the advantages it would afford. That a mail should arrive shortly before midnight, and close shortly afterwards, does certainly appear inconvenient, but, in comparison with, what we ...

NORMANVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
NORMANVILLE. ?^ The painful interest lately excited here by the sudden death of Mr. George Bryant, of the Normanville Hotel, has been allayed by the report of the analytical chemists to whom the contents of the stomach were forwarded for examination. The inquest had been ad journed until Saturday next ; but in order to set at rest the now evidently unfounded ap prehensions occasioned by some rumors which had been in circulation, it was very properly determined to assemble the Jury and terminate the proceedings to-day. The analysis required by the Jury had been entrusted to Messrs. A. Thomas and W. Ey, and the concluding paragraph of their report, which summarizes the whole of it, is as follows : — ' The result, therefore, of the above examination must be that though there are distinct evidences of the presence of morphia and its acid with antimony — were they there in more than in medicinal doses ? The quantity found of the latter metal distinctly says not, while the fact of laudanu...

WILLUNGA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
WILLUNGA. An accident, which might have been at tended1 with far more serious consequences than happily resulted, occurred here on Monday morning. Shortly before 6 o'clock, as Rounsevell's mail coach was being prepared , to start, Mr. Durieu, the driver, was on the box arranging some parcels, when one of the ostlers, contrary to orders, hitched two horses to the coach. They almost imme diately bolted ;, and Mr, Durieu not having the reins in his hand was unable to check them. He endeavored by putting on., the break to stop them ; but finding that he could not he threw himself from the coach, and sprained his leg, and was otherwise severely bruised in the fall. The coach was stopped before much further mischief was done, and we are glad to state that Mr. Durieu will be able to resume his duties on- the box on Monday morning.
FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
FINNISS VALE. Heavy fains and strong north and west winds have prevailed here for some days, but the crops were much improved by the reinark ?- ably fine weather of the previous week. A high sea has been running, and it is considered wonderful the jetty has withstood it, which it certainly would not have done in its present dilapidated state but for the protection of the rocks on the Rapid. Bay side. Mr. Hanson, the Colonial Engineer, has visited the works at the new Rapid Bay jetty, but it is not known what determination has been arrived at. Fat sheep continue to be scarce here, and find a ready sale at 23s. to 24s. A great quantity of meat is required now for the eup - ply of the mines.

FARMING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
FARMING IN VICTOREA. The Agricultural Report of the Melbourne Argus, published in their issue of the 19th, contains the following : — ' In the agricultural world everything seems to be going on satisfactorily. The early- sown crops are everywhere growing luxuriantly — rather too much so in some instances, and it is beginning to be thought that the farmers who did not sow very early will be best off. Not that there will be any lack of late sowers. Land is still being prepared for seed, and it is anticipated that sowing will be continued through August and September, and in some localities into October. The drilled crops show a considerable superiority over those sown broadcast, and the drill is likely to come into general use. By it a great saving of seed is effected, while there is this great addi tional advantage, that drilled crops can be cleaned between the rows. The system is now general in the old country, and a bmshel of seed wheat per acre is found to be quite enough. The rus...

NOTES ON PASTURES AND ON THE WAY TO HAVE GOOD ONES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
KOTES ON PASTURES AND ON THE WAY TO HAVE GOOD ONES. [From the Melbourne Weekly Age.] After all that has been done in the way of soaring English grasses, a good pasture is ?very rarely to be met with at any season, and hardly ever during the summer, when its ralue would be greatest. And yet, on each recurrence of autumn, we hear from all parts of the colony of land being laid down in English grasses ; the country papers in re cordiDe: this evidence of progress, also inform their readers that the ability of the land to carry stock will be thereby indefinitely in creased. That euch might be the result, we are free to admit, but that such implied increment of feed is a necessary result of sowing English grass seeds, a regard for truth eonipels us to deny- Something more is re ? quisite than simply sowing the seed, even upon deeply worked land ; and esp.-cially is this something required when the land happens (as is commonly the case) to have been nearly run out by exhaustive farming. No...

A Brisbane telegram reports that the Bank of Queensland has stopped payment to-doy. Parliament met at noon.

The threatening aspect of Europearx affairs renders the fortification of Port Jackson necessary, and it is proposed that plans thereof be laid before the House.

BURIED ALIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 28 July 1866
BURIED ALIVE. [From the Cintinnatti Wnelzhi Gazette.] ihe idea is not pleasing to the mind, but it is generally supposed that such incidents belong only to the line of horrible romance. A re cent debate in the French Senate shows that living burials are a living reality, requiring more stringent public regulations and greater care on the part of friends to protect all from this danger. The debate arose on the report of the committee on a petition by Dr. Carnol, for more stringent ante-burial regulations. The French law requires that twenty- four hours shall elapse between death and burial. Dr. Carnol declared that this minimum was not nearly enough, and he supported his opinion by numerous instances of suspended animation, showing good ground for his opinion that a large number of persons are annually buried alive in France. The Senate was about to give the subject the go-bv. as sufficiently provided for already. The member presenting the report proposed* to shelve it by the motion ...
