FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 25 August 1866

? oo ? FINNISS VALE. The fine weather which has prevailed of late has had a very beneficial effect upon the crops, although the nights are still cold and frosty The works at the Rapid Bay Jetty are about to be resumed. The Cynthia has arrived from Port Victor, bringing the pile- i driving machine and some material, and the only thing waited for now is the timber, which is hourly expected. The men recently discharged from the Wheal Coglin Mine have been employed there again. The mine is looking as well'; as ever, and is turning out some rich ore. I A large skate was captured the other day on j the rocks near the wharf. It was taken with : greatdifficuUy,owingtoits remarkable strength and weight. It measured 5 feet 3 inches in length, and about 4 feet in breadth, and weighed upwards of 60 lbs. Two or three hundred eggs were found in it.

LOCAL NEWS. STRATHALBYN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 25 August 1866

LOCAL NEWS. STRATHALBYSL The two grand events of the week at Strath albyn have been the opening of the Pres byterian Church, and the Rifle Association meeting. Tiseee two festivals hare eaeh been signally successful, and fully attest the liberal public spirit and progressive tendencies of the people of Strathalbyn and the neighborhood. We question very much whether, in any other district of South Australia, outside the Metropolis anything lite the magnificent liberality which characterised the donations towards the Church, or the plnck which in duced' the challenges to tbewhole colony which the rifle prizes presented could be found ex cept at Strathalbyn. It woiild be difficult to conceive anything more refreshing than the irrepressible generority wriieb. would.' manifest itself at the Ghurch opening. There are but few places in Australia — be they chief cities or humble provincial townships — where a score or two of individuals at a public meeting will rise one after another to bes...

CLARENDON. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 25 August 1866

? oo ? CLARENDON. After an abundance of rain we are now enjoying the finest weather, but the crops in this vicinity are looking very bad. The blight is already doing sad havoc amongst the cereals. The pease crops look well, and promise an abundant yield. Potato-planting nas commenced, but the area under this crop wiii be smaller than usual. Prunmjr is finished, and in all our orchards, the budding trees are vigorous and well. The aphis is doin-r a doal of mischief in the kitchen gardens. The slocks of colonial wine on hand here are very large, and a. good deal of anxietv is manifested as to a probable market for it.' ' : The conduct of some lads about here, who are extremely insolent and annoying in their proceedings after dark, is becoming a great nuisance. Tww Of them were brought before Mr; E. J. Peake, S.M.,* the other day and fined l-0s. erch for an indecent assault, and it is to be hoped the lesson will be a salutary one.

It is worth while remarking that, on the arrival of the tivo lastmaifs from' Km-laad, the people of Willunga have had to congratulate themselves nj- on getting the news a day earlier by means of their local paper than through the Adelaide papers, the Suuther/i Argus Extra ordinaries having in each instance forestaled the Adelaide dailies.

THE BULL'S CREEK ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 September 1866

THE BULL'S CREEK 11OAD. It would be difficult to account for the pre- j juJice which lias hitherto existed again~t the Bull's Creek road. It has been ftingyly un improved — a piece here trod a piece there — for some yeara past, until it presents as fine a sample of patchwork road-making as may be imagined. But all attempts to make a good road of it throughout, suen as would carry the traffic of the rich districts it passes through, and afford the producers whose lands abut on it access ±© the best port of export they -could obtain have been systematically resisted. In a freak of fitful generosity the Road Board did ceriainly construct a handsome and sub stantial bridge over the Finuiss at a point about thirty-seven miles fro^ Adelaide and some fourteen miles from the natural terminus or the line at Uoolwa. Jiut on the soutnern side of that bridge nothing worth mentioning has hee# done to improve the sand, scrub, swamp, creek, hill, and gully of the natural road. Tkere are scarcely t...
