Although we may ,l-e open to. the charge of repetition., we cannot help once more referring to the all-important ques tion of seed wheat for the next .season. People are. everywhere, petitioning the' Government to procure seed wheat ; and either to give it, pr lend it, io the dis tressed agriculturists. Now, pur coxintry readers -are well aware of our desire to help them, and of bur sincere willingness to advocate .their interests in every way we can. But we are bound in common honesty to say that we do not think much is to be expected from the Govern ment. Believing this, it would be a mere mockery on our part to tell the farmers to trust to the Government. It would be like telling them to lean on a broken reed. We thoroughly admit; the plea put forward by those .farmers whose crops are .ruined. They do want= help ? and we should rejoice to see a thoroughly good scheme devised for theitre...

BANKING STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

BANKING STATISTICS. We have already' published an official statement of. the Bank averages for the last half-year^ but ; the return was slightly inaccurate so far as concerns the Bank of Adelaide, and this inaccuracy of course affected the 'tbtals' of the Banks taken unitedly. An 'amended' return appears in the duzetfe, from which we find that the assets and liabilities of the Bank of Adelaide for the half-year ending December 31st 'last were as follows : : — Liabilities— notes in: circulation, £22,780; bills in circulation, £489 ; balances to Mother Banks^ £25,060 ; deposits, £110,752 1 : total average liabilities,, £159,082.

COPPER MINES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

COPPER MINES. ; -One of the three great interests we are accustomed to toast with a stereotyped enthusiasm at every public festivity is ?now ' undoubtedly at _. a/- low ebb. ; 'The Burra is but a relic of its former self, the few miners now working there feebly re minding us of the times when the mon ster mine was a scene of bustle and pros perity. Then, the great Northern Mines are all but closed, the few parties at work: in that quarter, being more to be' regarded as prospectors than anything else. On the Peninsula . most of the mines are either closed, or are making calls inT stead of declaring dividends. The old -Wallaroo Iffines are, however, at full work, and the Moonta continues to return a splendid income' to the proprietors, while other mineral properties in the ne^hbofhood are' looking ~'keenly'-or promising well. .Copper loining has its fits and starts ; and when the spasms are on, capital is lavished, and labor, time, and trouble bestowed without stint in the search for ...

VICTORIA. January 28, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 1 February 1868

YIGTQEId fFrom our Melbourne UorresDondent.1 January 28, 1868. The elections comprised in the first batch* have not resulted so much in favor of the Opposition as was expected a week ago— not that the Go vernment have added tp their former strength, but that the strength of the Opposition has not been augmented to the extent they had reckoned upon. At the close of the last general election, two years ago, the Government counted 20 out of the 24 seats as belonging to them. On this occasion they have secured only 17, and one or two of these will not go with them in extreme questions. It is but right, however, to -say -that some of the men returned on the former occasion as supporters of the Ministry had fouad the yoke too galling and became unmanageable, so that about six out of the four and twenty might beputdown as Opposition men iust prior to the dissolution. T?ius it will be seen that very little change has really been effected in the composition 6f the House so far. A. very signi...

NEW ZEALAND. [From our own Correspondent.! Wellington, 16th January, 1868. This being my first letter in the new year, it may not be amiss, before proceeding to a nar Tation of current events, to give a brief retro spective glance at the principal occurrences in the y«ar recently expired. In particularly striking events, the year 1867 has few, if any, to boast of ; nevertheless it is one which will leave its mark on the future his tory of New Zealand. The war, which for the Irst seven years has been deso'ating this island, may be said to have died out with the inglorious struggle which took place in the district of Tauranga and the interior of the Lake country in January last, when several valuable lives were lost and much property wantonly destroyed ; but the natives, after all, left masters of the position only one month previously. Sir G. Grey had traversed the interior of the country, and sent word to the Superintendent of Auckland that the natives were anxious for Europeans to ...
