FINNISS VALE. The last few days have been very wet, rendering ihe roads almost impassable. The ground has been so thoroughly satnrated that it will absorb no more. The crops in many instances are going off rapidly, owing to the superabundance of wet, but at last there are indications of finer weather. The report of the outbreak of cattle disease here was unfounded. Mr. Chalwiu has been down to inspect the cattle, and be says the mortality amongst them was owing to their r poverty.

YANKALILLA. The new schoonei Resolute, Captain Mackay, of 45 tons burden, arrived at this port on Tuesday last. She is built expressly for the aouthern coasting trade, for which ehe is admirably adapted. No expense has been spared in fitting her up for the convenience of passengers as well as for c&xrving cargo, and she will doubtless secure a large proportion of the trade. We Bre glad to see that a new and larger culvert has been commenced in the township, which will, we trust, prevent any further injury to surrounding gardens from flooding. The weather has been excessively wet, and the wheat crops on the heavy lands are Buffer ing severely.

THE METROPOLIS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 August 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent.]     There is little stirring in Adelaide just now, the news by the mail not having been of a nature either to increase the feeling of un- easiness in commercial circles, or thoroughly   to restore confidence. As, however, the panic had subsided at home, and the worst seemed to be over, it may be hoped we shall soon see a revival of trust and trade. The fact of there being a falling off of about £200,000 in the value of breadstuffs imported in the last half-year as compared with the corresponding half-year in 1865, is of itself enough to pro-   duce a dulness in business. There is, how- ever, the consolation to the bulk of the com- munity that the necessaries of life are not likely soon to rise in cost to the height they were a short time ago. With beef at 6d., mutton at 5d., and with wheat at 5s. 6d., we may calculate that we have escaped from famine prices. Cattle are still coming in f...

EUROPE. OUTBREAK OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 August 1866

EUROPE. OUTBREAK OF WAR. Events have travelled during the last month at an   accelerated pace, and momentous issues have been crowded into a narrow compass of time. The first   important incident was the abandonment of the Congress.   Just as the preparations for the meeting were   completed, the ambassadors appointed, and everything ready for the first summons to be issued, Austria   demurred. Prussia, rampant as she was, had accepted the programme without conditions. Italy had placed herself unreservedly in the hands of the neutral Powers. But on the 5th of June, the French   Government informed the other Cabinets that in   consequence of the reservations made by Austria, the project of a Conference must he relinquished, and the settlement of existing difficulties be left to the three Powers at variance. What Austria appears to have required was that the Conference should not touch any purel...
