MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

MINING INTELLIGENCE. fFrom the Wallaroo Times, February LI On Tuesday last, . January 28, the boiler of the Wombat engine, at the 'Wallaroo Mines, burst with a loud explosion, blowing off the roof of the engine-house, and causing other serious damage to the building. Fortunately no one was hurt. The boiler in places had worn very thin, and to this circumstance, it is said, the accident is attributable. The engineers are exonerated from all blame. A new boiler is to be erected'iromediately. We regret to learn that the New Cornwall Mine is to be stopped working. At a meeting of the shareholders, held on Thursday last, the Directors who have recently visjffced the mine, recommended a total stoppage of the works for the present. They, have confidence in the value of the property, and in the ultimate result of working it, but they stated that at the present low price of copper the mine cannot be worked without further calls on the shareholders.

THE IRON TRADE OF ENGLAND AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE IRON TRADE OF ENGLAND AND AMERICA. The iron trade, both in England and America, is at present suffering from a very severe depression. In England this is partly attributable to the withdrawal of public confidence from railway Directors, thus depriving the companies from making their customary renewal of permanent ways, and putting a stop to further extension. The .in jury done to that part of the trade engaged in the manufacture of iron rails may be easily imagined, when we mention that the English Railway Com panies have purchased 150,000 tons of rails less, during the past 12 months, than in the 12 months preceding. The other branches of the trade have also suffered severely, but none so much as that de pendent upon iron shipbuilding, and we are told that ' judging from the disor ganization of business in Liverpool, which has been the principal mainstay of ship builders during the last few years, there is little prospect of an early revival.' The foreign trade of England does ...

PUBLIC EDUCATION. COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

PUBLIC EDUCATION. {'communicated. I Although the necessity for calling together the Imperial Parliament in November last arose chiefly on account of the Abyssinian expedition, there are topics briefly alluded to in the Queen's Speech of greater importance to the future welfare of the country than the re sult of a war with a savage ruler of a semi-barbarous nation, and the (xovern ment have acted wisely in referring to them, albeit their ultimate solution may have to be further delayed, as in all pro bability it will. We read in the Speech from the Throne, 'the Public Schools Bill, which has already been more than once submitted to Parliament, will again be laid before you;' and also, 'the general question of the education of the people requires your most serious atten tion, and I have no doubt you will approach the subject with a full ap preciation of its vital importance and its acknowledged difficulty.' What ever may be the fate of the Public Schools Bill, there can be no doubt th...

THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. The few items in the President's mes sage that have come to us in the wake of our usual Panama telegrams possess an importance and interest which entitle them to more than a passing thought. The great Trans- Atlantic people are fond or naving everything on a large scale. Having the largest country in the world, they must have everything else to con form thereto. The four years' war with the South was carried on on an immense scale, and the final victory was achieved only at the expense of a frightful sacrifice of human life. And then, as the end of the »attBr,ourconBins in ^States are saddled. with a terrible debt. Two billions six hun dred and ninety millions of dollars are equal to 538 millions sterling, a sum which is easily written, but not so easily realised, and whichrepresentsan amount of taxation from which any nation may well shrink. Not the least annoying part of the business is the fact, that a good deal of this money was wasted. President Johnson...

THE FENIAN DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE FENIAN DIFFICULTY. It is a characteristic of John Bull to undervalue his enemies. Even men not accustomed to vaunting in other matters, men alse of keen perception and sound judgment in business relations, often exhibit the same supercilious contempt for enemies. Who does not remember the celebrated remark of the late Richard Cobden, that England could 'crumple up' Russia as easily as he {Mr. Cobden) could crumple up the; sheet of paper which he then held in his hand ? England, France, and Sardinia together found it, however, much harder work to capture a Crimean fort than Mr. Cobden thought it would be to crumple up the Russian empire. John Bull has grown wiser since then, but he has still much of his old self-conceit to get rid of, and a great deal to learn in reference to those who differ from him. This has been most signally exemplified in the celebrated Fenian difficulty. At first the Fenian rising was jeered at, and treated as something far too contemptible and ridiculous ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN HORSES IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN HORSES IN TASMANIA. We do not grumble at being defeated, if the defeat is a fair and honorable one, but we believe very 'few impartial sports men will be contented with the decisions of the Tasmanian .judges as regards Onwra. It matters little to xis personally whether Mr. E. M. Bagot wins or loses ; but we confess that we are -exceedingly dissatisfied with the doubly adverse de \ : cisibn' against Cowra. Having published \ -ihe report of the races, we need not re \ peat it tere ; but we must say that too V much local influence seems to have -eeh . 'broHght-to bear.

THE MANUFACTURE OF SUGAR FROM BEETROOT, AS PRACTISED IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE MANUFACTURE OF SUGAR FROM BEETROOT, AS PRACTISED IN FKANCE. fTranslatei-from the French for this paper.] The species of beet generally cultivated in France for tlie manufacture of sugar, is the Silesian, the richest variety of which is the pink . or rose-«ollared or crowned. It is a valuable crop, as it does not impoverish the soil; the only uroduct it withdraws from it consists of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen (sugar), and the plant provides itself abundantly with these principles elsewhere than from the manures. Azote, and other mineral properties, eontained in the beet, are returned to or remain in the soil, which therefore suffers no exhaustion. Indeed the fibrous por *irm nf tihfi root, the rootv elongated Dart. which often extends to two metres in length, remains in the_jjround, which it nourishes and renders porous ; the leaves, and other non-saccharine parts, add di rectly or indirectly to the manure ; the remainder feeds cattle, and yields strength, flesh, and fat.

THE MAIL TO ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE MAIL TO ENGLAXJD. Our homeward mail is now made up, and the latest South Australian' dates in London, by this opportunity, will be February 1. But Melbourne, some hun dreds of miles further off, will send home papers and letters as late as February 5. This is, certainly, a very miserable result of our much boasted 'geographical position,' and a most humiliating con clusion to all our great intercolonial Con ferences, and our Governmental negotia tions and demonstrations. It was hoped on Friday evening that we might send away a supplementary mail to Melbourne, per Aldinga, on Monday morning, although even this arrange ment would have left us two days behind Melbourne ; but there is now no hope of a compromise of the kind, as the Alilinga is advertised to sail on Tues day. We hear it rumored that the Government wished the Aldinga to take the supplementary mail for nothing, which {if true) is scarcely rea sonable, and we do not wonder at the steamer declining the honorary service. ...

THE VINE DISEASE IN QUEENS-LAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE VINE DISEASE IN QUEENS LAND. {From the Queenslahdcr.l After visiting most of the vineyards in our immediate district, and hearing from others at a distance, we can now calculate somewhat definitely on the ravages made by the vine disease (oidium Tuckerii). Of the actual presence of thajfe dreaded destroyer of the vine and. its fruit in this part of Australia, there is no room to doubt ; but thanks to the: prompt way in which it has been met, there is good reason for believing that it has received such a check, and vinegrbwers are now so well posted concerning the necessary means of driving it away, that little is to be feared from it in f uture— so long as vinegrowers are as vigilant as their brethren of Queensland proved themselves in 1866-7. The grape crop now coming to maturity will be the shortest gathered here for many years. In vineyards where, the weight of grapes might be reasonably looked for at about twelve tons, not a fourth will be gathered. A. fourth of what it ough...

After an interval since 1861 another champion race meeting has been held at Hobart Town. The. weather was all that could be desired, and between 7,003 and 8,000 persons visited the course, including His Excellency the Governor and Buite. The pleasure derivable from the contest for the great event of the day, the Cham pion Handicap, was marred by a dispute which arose as to whether or not the South Australian .mare Cowra, ridden by W.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND THE PRESS. The' Chamber of Commerce have held a meeting, ostensibly, dn the new postal contract, and the duty of South Aus tralia, in relation thereto. It was not a very full meeting, but this is accounted for in two ways : the weather was in tensely hot, and it was known M. Tom kinson would be sure to be there and form a quorum. The weather was hot, and Mr. Tomkinson was there. The Secretary having, in stentorian tones, read the minutes of the previous meeting, the Chairman aroused the members present to a sense of their situation. But before the real business of the afternoon came on, there were certain prelimina ries. It.' seems that through the -refusax of the Government to allow notices of insolvencies to be inserted in the news papers as neretorore, inconvenience and loss have accrued to the community, and the Chamber, as guardians of the com mercial money-bag, took due cognisance of the fact. But they took cognisance of it in two ways. On the one hand,...
