THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, August 2. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 August 1866
THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, August 2. In ings are looking very gloomy in the commercial world, and people are anxiouslj longing for the next mail. Tbe Banks have undoubtedly put the screw on to a con siderable extent, and houses that were ever spoken of as undoubtedly safe and prosperous are novy somewhat in the shade. These mauers are Kept quiet as lar as possible, but compositions and assignments are difficult things to conceal. Probably not much harm is done yet, but business is cramped by the want of accommodation, and when prospects are doubtful speculation is at a standstill. Mining matters are necessarily dull. Really good and proved mines are not affected, but the doubtful ones stand a chance of being shut up. For brokers these are bad times, j and tbeir great complaint is that nothing will move off.' The farmers have made a mistake, holding fo long, as the newsfrom San Francisco sbows that Californian wheat of next harvest may be in long before o...

WENTWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 4 August 1866
WENTWORTH. On the ISth and 19th instants the Wentworth Amateur Dramatic Club gave performances in the large room of the Wentworth Hotel, and on both occasions had crowded houses. The proceeds, amounting to £42, was given in aid of the funds of the Wentworth Hospital. The members of the club will perform again shortly, having been specially requested to do so. Great dissatisfaction exists amongst the residents here on account of tbe alteration in the times of the arrival and departure of the mail. For several weeks the mail arrived on Friday evening and left again on Monday morning, thus giving ample time to answer letters, but now it arrives on Saturday after noon, and leaves for Adelaide oa Sunday. A memorial bds been got tip for presenta tion to the Postmaeter-General, requesting him to rectify the present unsatisfactory and inconvenient system, and we bare bo doubt that gentleman will do his utmost to brine about a better arrangement.

MILANG. The opening of the new Primitive Methodist Chapel took place on Monday, and must have given much gratification to all parties con aerned. The weather was lovely, and was appreciated better than usual on aceount of the very rough weather we have had lately.
