ORIGINAL POETRY. RHYMES FOR THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

ORIGINAL POETRY. EHYMES F.OR THE TIMES. To farmers who in rusty plight, Contending against grubs and blight, With crops most miserably slight, To you I sing. ' Cheer up ; quail aot, but bravely fight Till coming spring. The hardy tiller of the soil. With horny hands well trained to toil, Who from dishonesty recoil With pure disdain ; Who dreads the end of this turmoil, To you my strain. Though the horizon's gloomy spread With dark clouds looming overhead, Remember they are heaven fed For some design. To Him alone must bow tne head, To Him resign. But why, you ask, should this be so ? Why should He plant us here below? Why should misfortune overflow, And Borrowfill? I cannot answer ; this I know — It is His wilL * * - * ♦ There's no such thing as ' chance' with Trim, Who made the glorious seraphim, . Who called these World's from darkness grim, To flooded light. With one word, blank confusion trim, And set it right. No ; what may happen any man — Now as when first the world began, Fo...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

ISTEWS OF THE WEEK. The Criminal Sittings of the Supreme Court will commence on Tuesday next. The calendar as printed contains the names of 34 prisoners, some of whom are charged with serious crimes. There are three charged, with rape, one indecent assault, one bestiality, one child murder, one abduction, one arson, two burglary, a number for laiceny from the p-rson and in dwelling houses, &c, two for forgery, two for horse stealing, one for false preteuces, one forperjur/, and two for assaults on peace officers. The reopening soiree of the Adelaide 'Wesleyan Mutual Improvement Association was held in the Pirie-street Lecture Hall on Friday evening, February 7. There was but a small attendance, owing, no doubt, to the closeness of the atmosphere. The Rev. J. G. Millaid, President of the Association, occupied the chair, and the proceedings were opened, with prayer by the Rev. A. Kigg. After a piece of music by tbe choir, 'Eternal mansions,' had been given, the Chair man deliv...

THE MEAT PRESERVING QUESTION. A preliminary meeting, conveyned by cir cular, was held at the Arbitration Hall, White's Rooms, King William-street, on Thurs day afternoon, for the purpose of considering the advisability of the establishment of a meat preserving company. About a dozen ©r 15 gen tlemen interested in the mate er were in attend ance. Mr. J. Williams, M.P- was voted to the chair, and, in opening the meeting, remarked that he did not know what the business of the meeting was, but perhaps Mr. Austin, who had called them together would tell them why he bad done so, Mr. J. T$. Austin, remarked that he had thought it best to write down what he had to say, a-» he would then be able to lay it before them in a more con cise form ttun if he made a speeeh upon. it.

A public meeting was held on Tuesday, Feb ruary the 4th, at the Angaston Hotel, Angas ton, to take into consideration the present agricultural distress, and who were the most fit and proper persons to represent the distict in Parliament. At the hour stated there were between 10'J and z H) persons present, most of whom' were farmers in the district. . Mr. E. Salteb, having been appointed Chair man, read the notice convening the meeting, and said that this was one of the most impor tant meetings he had ever attended, it being on account of the almost total failure of their crops, and by their numerous attendance that night it showed more than any words from him could do, the importance of the subject which had called them together. As he came to listen, perhaps the position in which they had placed him was suitable in that respect, and he could assure them he felt deeply for them. Mr. H.

MARINE INSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

MARINE INSURANCE. The Register of the 5th instant had an article on marine insurance, some of the statements in which are utterly incorrect, and do injustice to one of our most pros perous institutions. The article takes for its text the half-yearly report of the Ade laide Marine and Fire Assurance Com pany, to which we called attention a few days ago ; and it makes certain state ments which, so far from being borne out, are flatly contradicted by the past history of the Company. The writer, speak ing of this Company, says : — ' A business which has seldom paid before suddenly jumps into the category of cent, per cents.' And again: — 'As it is several years since they paid a dividend before, this financial transformation has naturally taken people on 'Change by surprise.' Any one reading these statements must necessarily come to the conclusion that the Company, up to the present time, has not been a paying concern, aud that a sudden burst of prosperity had fortu _---?«. . -r.1** f°r...

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

THE RIVERTON INQUEST. The inquest on the woman Sarah Fauld, whose body was found some days ago, near to Riverton, leaves the cause of her death still a mystery. We have reported the inquest at great length, because of the impbjefiance of the case ; and atter reading it over, we believe our readers, like ourselves, will have the conviction that something in this ' strange story,' remains Unrevealed. The inquest fails to show how the unfor tunate woman came by herdeath, and the verdict of the Jury is properly an open one. The facts which have come to light are simply these. A young man reaping in a wheat paddock on January 23, saw near the side of the road the body of a female, which was in a high state of decomposi tion. By the side of the body st bottle was found which had contained either brandy or rum. Several yards from where the body was seen, there was apiece of wheat eight or ten feet square, much trampled down, and which had the ap pearance of a violent struggle having taken ...

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

FIN ANCIAL PROSPECTS. rCOMMTJMTCATBD.1 A stranger visiting this colony during the brief sojourn of H.R.H. the Diike of Edinburgh would have probably remarked thai if one thing was more apparent than another it was that, although a small community, South Australia was inha bited by a prosperous and well-to-do people, who had no present or prospective troubles to contend with, and who, in neither their public nor social relations, were much addicted to extravagance and excess. He might probably have felt some surprise to find that all classes of the people were able and willing to con tribute something towards giving their illustrious visitor a reception commen surate with his exalted . station ; and ttoning his thoughts to the miserable con dition of numbers of his fellow-creatureB in the. densely-populated countries of the Old worldj Our visitor might have been tempted to regret, as he sur veyed the enormous territory we call South Australia, that he could not 'play the enchanter's ...

THE STATE OF THE FLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE STATE OF THE FLOCKS. The quarterly report of the Chief In spector of Sheep for the quarter ending 31st December, 1867, is on the whole a cheering one, and shows that Mr. Valen tine and his coadjutors are exercising a careful vigilance over the flocks of the colony. It is admitted that one of the greatest curses that can befal the pastoral interest is the presence ot scab, and the province has gone to considerable trouble and expense to prevent scab in healthy flocks, and to eradicate it from stations where it has shown itself. Only 4,000 sheep have been imported from New South Wales, via the Barrier Ranges. The sheep in the South-East are perfectly free from disease, and those in the Northern districts look healthy and clean. By the Murray 15,600 sheep have been imported from New South Wales, and as the restrictions have not been removed no exportations have taken place during the quarter. During the year 80,407 were imported from New South Wales, and 1,520 from Victoria, the ex...

"WHAT WILL HE DO WITH IT?" [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

' WHAT WILL HE DO WITH IT ?' ? It was lately announced that His Excel lency hag received from'H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh the sum of £100 to be ' dis tributed amongst the charitable institu tions of South Australia.' Now, what can Sir Dominick do with this hundred? Nearlv all our charitable institntiona hvp. Government institutions. Wehave charity schools, and asylums, and charity hos pitals, and niany other channels through which the charity of the Government flows ; but we presume these State insti tutions are not exactly the class contem plated by His Roy^l Highness in his recent donation. '..-; If , the Governor felt at liberty Jto;.hand it over to Mr. Coglin, as the nearest approach to a Queen's Hundred, it might, in one sense, be a ' charity ;' but as the amount is to be 'distributed,' there is a little difficulty even in that arrangement. However, we presunie a meeting of the Executive Council ;.will be held to con sider the matter, and possibly some scheme may be struck out...

A BABOON HUNT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

A BABOON HUNT. We observed a troop of about a hundred baboons, who were gathering gum arabic from the mimosas ; upon seeing us they_ immediately waddled off. ' Would the lady like to have a girrit (baboon)?' exclaimed the ever-excited ?/ali. Being answered in the affirmative, away dashed the three hunters in full gallop after the astonished apes, ' who, finding themselves pur sued, went off at their best speed. The ground was rough, being full of broken hollows, covered scantily with mimosas, and the stupid baboons, instead of turning to the right into the rugged and steep valley of the Settite, where they would have been secure from the agga geers, kept a straight course before the horses. It was a curious hunt. Some of the very young baboons were riding on their mothers' backs ; these were now going at their best pace, holding on to their maternal steeds, aud looking absurdly human ; but, in a few minutes, as we closely followed the Arabs, we were all in the midst of the herd, aud...

ACCIDENTS IN THE STABLE, ON THE ROAD, AND IN THE FIELD. POLL EVIL, [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

ACCIDENTS IN THE STABLE, ON THE EOAD, AND IN THE FIELD. POLL EVEU Among heavy draught horses, poll evil used to be of frequent occurrence ; but, since these animals are better cared for than they formerly were, the disease is comparatively rare. Like fistulous withers, poll evil arises from external violence, which may be inflicted in a variety of ways. The pressure from the head straps of the halter or heavy bridle immediately behind the ears, blows received in consequence of the head being suddenly eleyated while the horse is passing under a low doorway, or when he is feeding from his manger directly under a low rack, are the ordinary causes of the mischief ; but any force applied, no matter how, to the upper part of the neck, at the point where the head and neck asre united, Jftay result in %he formation of an abscess and the development of sinases, exactly as in fistulous withsrs, which differs from poll evil only in respect no situa tion. The progress of the disease is generall...

The Housewife's Canter, [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

-% Jpimsrfirife's Canter. To Cool Drink, &c— Those who have neither ice, nor chemical preparations, may always make their drinks, &c., delightfully cool by evaporation. Take a rough coarse cloth, one that will hold plenty of water ; saturate it tho roughly, wrap round the bottle, jug, or dish ; and stand out in the sun, or current of air. A» long as the cloth keeps wet, the bottle will keep cool ; but of course the cloth must not get dry. An Excellent Sauce fob Meat or Game. — The following is a good sauce for any meat or game. Half-a-dozen split shalot3, a clove of garlic, two bay leaves, basil, truffles, thyme, and tarragon leaves, half an ounce of bruised mustard seed, some Seville orange peel, a quarter of an ounce of cloves, the same of mace, double the quantity of cayenne pepper, and two ounces of salt.

Crifles of Wit and Burton[?] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

8/cMcs rf 3Sit ajitr Jpurtoiu Why is a worn shawl like a loud knock ? — Because it is a good (w) rap. Why are pens, ink, and paper, notwithstand ing all their vaunted power, incapable of pro gression ?— Because they are stationa(e)ry articles. At an examination of some girls for the rite of confirmation, in answer to .the question, ' What is the outward viable sign or form in baptism?' one of them replied, 'The baby, sir.' An American paper remarks that some of the editors are beginning to call the news by the ocean telegraph cablegram. — a strangely caco phanous part of speech. 'Telegram' is awkward enough ; but '' cablegram' is really too bad. In a real property case before a French Judge at an early period of the revolution (the story is told by the elder Berryer), the defendant, whose title was contested, proved that the estate had been in his family for more than 200 years, 'Well, then,' said the Judge, 'it is now full time for another family to have a turn.'

THE COMING ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

THE COMING ELECTIONS, TO THE EDITOB. Sir— Is there not something ominous in the quiet apathy so generally prevalent on the eve of a general election ? Can it be portentous of indifference? qr is it that fanners are so generally engaged ? To a considerable extent the latter hypothesis may be admitted. Then, again, perhaps one constituency may be waiting tor another to initiate proceedings. No one questions the im portance of an election, and yet the secondary attention which is given leads one to think that people forget that the election depends on the act of individuals. It seems to me a grave mistake to return members to Parliament on the mere popular questions of the day. No doubt there aie popular questions which ought to be put and answered satisfactorily.* But first and foremost let us look out for men of principle — men who will not barter their honor for the first bait which is held out to them. Such men may be a little cautious in giving pr-mises, but their promise when giv...

OPENING OF THE DRY CREEK LOOP-LINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868

OPENING OF THE DRY CREEK LOOP-LINE. The formal opening of the Dry Creek Loop line took place on Saturday, February L The Commissioner of Public Works, with a view to give some eclat to the affair, issued invitations to a large number of gentlemen to take part in the ceremonial, which were promptly responded to. The, arranged programme of proceedings was that the special train should leave Adelaide for Dry Creek Station at L30, and then proceed to Port Adelaide, and thence to Dry Creek, where a luncheon would be provided. The Loop-line, which is intended to facilitate traffic between the North and the Port, has often been discussed in Parliament ; but at length a Bill was passed for this purpose, and on this Bill being assented to the necessary works were at once commenced. In March, 1867, the first sod was turned, and the line has been pro ceeded with as quickly as was feasible.' The distance between Dry Creek and the Port is nearly ih miles, and the dis'ance saved for Northern traf...
