AQUATICS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
AQUATICS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir^ — I recollect quite well when the Melbourne string-test gig Falcon gave the Edith that thrashing in January, 1867, with what defiant pride, and how exultingly, the Pelican Club pointed to its boat — the star of its shed— and challenged our boat-builders to turn out a match for her. Pooh ! the very idea of such an attempt was preposterous. I recollect, too. amid the Pelican bragadocio, how for a long time no one could be found in the workshops of our boat-builders plucky enough to combat the honor of the trade here. 'Twas no marveL It does not pay our boat-builders to put racing gigs together for such a purpose. I can prove it. The Falcon had all but got through her twelve months' holding of the championship, and was in a fair way to pass through the re mainder of her term unmolested, when, lo ! a brick arose (Mr. Michelinore), took up the defence of the reputation of his trade, and built the Prince Alfred. The builder was successful; the Falcon was nowh...
THE Chronicle and Mail. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1868. FARMERS' MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
«A5?DBDAT, FEBRUA3EtY 8, 1868. FARMERS' iffiEETINGS. Meetings of farmers continue to he held througb.out the colony on the subject of agricultural distress. At nearly all of these meetings sad tales are told of heavy losses, pressing demands, and financial difficulty. At one time the question is how to raise the landlord's rent, or the mortgagee's interest; at another time it is how to meet the storekeeper and tradesman ; and then,-again, the question of seed wheat presses on the unfortunate farmer, who is at his wit's end to faiow how to sow his land next season. It is very distressing to read the many reports of these melancholy meetings ; and. stall more so to know that the complaints made are but too well founded. But amidst the prevailing gloom and; darkness a ray or two of light every now and then breaks in. We occasionally hear of landlords forgiving their tenamts a year's rent -of others forgiving them half a year's rent, and so on with mortgagees and agents. Tbis is as it s...

DISTRAINING ON SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
DISTRAINING ON SQUATTERS. There will be a rather unusual sale next Wednesday. The Government Auc tioneer (Mr. Parr), will offer at auction some 14,000 sheep, depasturing on a run in the Tatiara district. The sale is or dered by the Sheriff^ and the process is a distress for rent. ' 'In other words, the ; Government are seizing upon a squat ter's sheep for rent ; a proceeding at all events very unusual, and — so far as we remember — unprecedented. '[' We do not know . who the lessee is, although as the numbers of the leases are given in the advertisement, it would be very easy to discover. But we had rather not know, so that we may com- : meht upon the matter without the' impu tation of prejudice or favor. The firs . thing that strikes us is;' that for the Gof, yernment to. distrain for rent is a most unusual course. Not that it is there fore improper, but it .certainly is un usual. - Non-payment xit : rents invol ving forfeiture of lease, Governments have generally been content to d...
MARINE BOARD. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
MARINE BOARD. Monday. February 3. Present— The President and all the Wardens. A vote of thanks was accorded to Captain Smith for having acted as Chairman .during the President's absence. The President stated that he had seen the Treasurer, and that he had verbally stated that as the harbor-boat crew's services would not be further required, as under the present Marine Board Act ships cannot be charged harbor nilotasre. it would therefore be for the Board to consider, how they could provide places for those men forming the crew. He also pointed out that by the death of Mr. Nation there was a vacancy as Harbor-Master, and would there fore propose that Mr. Carson should be placed there. Captain Smith wished before any ap pointment was decided upon to bring before the notice of the Board the services of Captain G. W. Brown, who had made application for an appointment from the Board. . A long discussion ensued, wherein the Presi dent pointed out that it was not a question of considering ...

EDUCATION BOARD. Monday. February 3. Present— Mr. W. G. Belt (Chairmanl, Mr. Wm. Cayenagh, M.P., Mr. A. S. Clark, Mr. E. Dewhirst (Second Inspector), and Mr. Jas. Bath (Secretary). Second Inspector's Report.— The Second Inspector's report on 14 schools in the Wallaroo district was read with the following remarks : — The schools included in this memorandum were fairly attended, considering the heat and the prevalence of low fever in some localities. They were also in a generally satisfactory state, with the exception of those conducted by Mrs. Burgess and Miss Bruce; who both require to be written to by the Secretary, to the effect that their licences will be endangered, unless their schools be improved.' Applications.-— Applications in form were received from William Anderson, Kapnnda; William D. Clint, Penwortham; John M. Howie, Yankalilla; and E. L. Plunkett, Penola. The Board directed that the three first-named schools should, be inspected ; but considered that a male teacher sho...
MEAT PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
MEAT PRESERVING. Although the meeting held the other day with reference to the formation of a Company for r preserving our surplus meat waB productive of no immediate result, we earnestly hope that the matter will not be allowed to drop, but that it will be again.taken up by men of capital, experience, and energy. To boil down sheep and cattle merely for thesakeof the tallow, is certainly, an ultimate resource against total loss, but it cannot be de pended upon as a permanent source of profit. But why should only the tallow be utilised? There is the lean flesh of the. animal, there are the bones, horns, hoofs, and skins ; whilst even the blood and offal ought to be made to bear a marketable value. In a word, every portion of the animal is capable of being turned to pro fitable account, whilst as a concomitant of an establishment ot the kind, pigs and poultry ought to be reared in enor mous quantities. But to throw away all except the fat is an unpardonable waste, and an unfailing me...

AMERICAN PRISONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
AMERICAN PRISONS. An American paper says : — ' We went over the Eastern Penitentiary of Pensylvania, once before described by Charles Dickens in bis. American notes. 'Jhe penitent ary contains 571 prisoners, the largest number they have ever had within the walls ; all of them men, except about 20 women. They only keep here a sufficient number of women to do the neces sary washing and mending for the male pri soners. The longest sentence is that of a man sentenced to twenty-six years and a half im prisonment, sentence upon sentence, for an accumulation of crimes. The next longest term is that of a woman imprisoned for 18 years. The pris.n, built in galleries, mostly of two storeys, radiating from a centre, covers ten acres. Each man is in a separate cell, and no male prisoner can speak to another ; but each has an opportunity of conversing with the attendants once at least in the day. The women are sometimes put together, two in one ceU. Reformatory schools, by which in England child...
