CAPE JERVIS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866

CAPE JERVIS. We hear the Talisker mine looks much better, a new shoot of ore having been cut this week at the 22-fathom level, Price's | shaft, south of the cross course. At Sinclair's shaft the lode looks exceedingly well. . On Tuesday night an accident, which it ia wonderful did not prove fatal, happened at - Jj8«lair's shaft. Two men were employed putting some timber in the shaft some seven fathoms from the bottom. To perform this operation it was necessary for them to have a stage to stand on. While they were en gaged busily at their work one end of the stage gave way, and both men were instantly precipitated to the bottom of the shaft. Most miraculously the only injury sustained was a few severe bruises on the head and face of one man, the other escaping almost unhurt ! The weather has been bitterly cold and sloppy, consequently much impeding surface work at the mine.

THE SOUTHERN MAIL SERVICE. On Saturday evening a cumber of gentlemen re siding at Goolwa availed themselves of the oppor tunity afforded by the Postmaster-General's presence there to Urge upon him the desirability of establish ing a through mail service from Victor Harbor to Adelaide via Goclwa. The deputation, which was hastily extemporised, was courteously received by Mr. Lewis at Varcoe's Hotel. Amongst those present we nolieed Messrs. E. M. Cohen, Thomas Goode, jun., J. W.

Mr. Cohes, in opening the proceedings, said it seemed some new arrangement for the mail service ?was about to commence which the people of Gcolwa did not quite understand.

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, August 9. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866

THE METROPOLIS. I Fmm nnr own CorreSDOndent. 1 Adelaide, August 9. Business is still dull, but there is a grow ng feeling that unless the next English news iahould be still worse than the last we shall recover ourselves. The Banka have drawn in their operations, «md are extreinelv cautious, but forbearauce seems to be the order of the day. It is satisfactory to know that no failure lias yet occurred in consequence of the policy of the Banks. The Chamber of Commerce held its annual meeting on the 7th. The principal feature in j the report was that of urging the Ministry to allow a drawback on jam3 and unbroken packages for intercolonial export, and it was resolved to memorialize the Government to that effect. Mr. George Young thought the better way would be to allow no drawback, but pay a fixed sum to the Government of Victoria and New South Wales to allow our goods to pass the border duty free, and so do away with all necessity for custom-houses on the river or boundary line. This i...

FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 11 August 1866

FINNISS VALE. We are sorry to hear that the cattle disease has been introduced into this district. It is stated that a mob of cattle (about 60) started a few weeks ago from .tho vicinity of Gum Creek, en route for some large pastures in this neighborhood, and that 28 died during the journey, and 23 since their arrival. This should be looked to immediately, as it is a   very serious matter, particularly in a district where farmers do so much of their work with bullock-teams. A meeting of the late volunteers was held at the Finniss Vale Hotel the other day, Captain Randall in the chair. The Chair-   man explained the new regulations to the meeting, and after some discussion they were generally approved of ; but regret was expressed that the new Act does not pro- vide for admitting recruits into the reserve force, and the opinion prevailed that should this system be adhered to, the number re- quired would not be raised. Last week a cottage, the property of Mr....

PROSPECTS OF THE ENGLISH AND FOREIGN HARVESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 August 1866

PROSPECTS OF THE ENGLISH AND FOREIGN HARVESTS. The Mark Lane Express of the 25th June says : — The rains and storms of the past -week have not im proved the prospects of the wheat crop, as more straw ?will doubtless be the consequence, but very probably less com. Although favorable to the late grass lands, the wet has delayed haymaking in many places that were ready, and will cause home damage unless there be extreme vigilance. As to spring corn, the advantages will be great. The storms have also done some injury in France and Belgium, and neither of these countries can expect a large fathering of wheat, the rains of Januarv and frosts of May having done harm, the former producing an ?unusually largo crop of weeds. In Germany there are fewer complaints, and an average produce is looked for. nnless the tramp of soldiers should deso late the ficl.is ; but the worst accounts of all come from America, so lately our principal source of supply in a time of dearth, and some write down the ...

CANADA. The Fenians have been defeated by the Canadian troops. The campaign has been very short. It commenced on the 31st of May, and was over bv the 3rd of June.
