SCHOOL WANTED FOR RICE'S CREEK. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
SCHOOL WANTED FOR RICE'S CREEK. TO THB EDITOR. Sir— The 'residents of Bice's Creek feet aggrieved at the manner in which ' the Govern ment have treated then? in not providing ? echool and a teaeherfor that locality. Meetings have been held at Bice's Creek, requests have been made, and a good deal of correspondence has been carried on, the outcome being ,that st site was selected, surveyed, and a building pro mised ten months ago, bat unfortunately for the children this promise has never been carried into effect. There are forty-seven children of at school-going age within a radius of two and a- half miles, the greater number of whom oamnofe share in the benefits arising from oar present national; system of education owing to their being unable to travel long distances over rough oountry, which inconsequence of floods in winter is at times dasgerous and impassable.

TAKING THE BASQUE GLENIVO[?] UP THE PORT PIRIE CREEK. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
TAKING THE BARQUE GLENTVOJB UP THE POUT PIRIE CREEK. TO THB HDTCOB. Sir— The statement appearingin the Chrmad* of the 2nd instant is inoorreot, and I trust in the spirit of fair play yon will allow me through your columns to contradict it. The facts of tha ease are that the barque had part of her ballast oat, that she was drawing thirteen forward, and in addition that she was of much greater tonnage than named in your telegram. If I allowed thv - statement that I refused to take a vessel of the tonnage and draught mentioned by you up ther creek to go unchallenged it would do me a very great deal of harm as it is an established f set (vide Marine Board Begulations) that vessel* drawing the draught referred to can came op this ereek with perfeet safety. Had I had orders to pilot this particular vessel up I should have dene so witkout hesitation. — I am, &c, P. MUBDOOH, Licensed Pilot, Port Piria. Port Pirie, April 22.

OUR WEST AUSTRALIAN LETTER. Perth, April 7. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
OITB 'WEST AUSTRALIAN LETTER. [From our awn Correspondent.] Perth, April 7. Yesterday with the usual formalities and military display Sir William. Robinaou prorogued the .Legislative Council, which had met in special session for the purpose of passing a Loan Bill, and a Bill for extending the Eastera Railway from. Guildford to Chidlow's Spring. This session, which has lasted nearly three weeks, has been an important one in many ways. Nothing at the present time could do more to promote the prosperity of the colony thaa the rail tray extension 'which it has secured, out the side issues which have largely occupied the attention of the House are equally grave in their bearing upon the future. The country has been brought face to face with tlie question — Is it possible any longer to continue under the now existing Constitution? has the adoption of eelf-government not become an absolute necessity? Nine out of ten I believe would now answer that could they conscienlioubly admit that the ...
THE LATE SULTAN OF TURKEY. CONSTANTINOPLE, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
THE LATE SULTAN OF TURKEY'. Constantinople, April 22. Much excitement is caused in conse quence of confessions which have been made by four palace domestics to the effect that they -mere concerned in the death of the late Sultan Abdul Aziz, who after his deposition on May 26, 18/6, died suddenly, and was believed to have com mitted suicide by inflicting a nasty incision in his arm with a pair of scissors. The four men in question new declare that the Sultan was murdered, and their confession tends to implicate many of the highest officials of the court with the crime committed.
