MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 September 1866
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MEADOWS. On Thursday evening, between 9 and 10 o'clock, people here were suddenly startled by an exceedingly bright light, which proved to be a splendid meteor. It burst with a great noise, resembling cannon at a distance, and at the same time a slight shock of earthquake was felt, accompanied by a rumbling sound not unlike distant thunder. Slugs, aphis, and frost are committing Bad depredations in the gardens. Tenders are soon to be called for the erec tion of a public schoolroom here — a buildinsr much needed. The question was discussed at the meeting held last Saturday, and what was said is reported elsewhere. The few warm days we have had have made grass grow luxuriantly, and there is now an abundance of feed. Some foolish, persons ha.ve been playing practical jokes during the last few days, but they are narrowly watched, and will probably receive the punishment they merit.
FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 September 1866
FINNISS VALE. The weather has been very fine and warm latterly, and in tbe early part of this week it was really hot, hotter indeed than we ever remember it to have been here in August. At present the crops are looking well, though rather backward ; but if the bad weather con tinues they will be seriously affected. Our harvest is likely to be late this year. On Mondav evenine a creat treat was afforded by a lecture and concert given in the schoolroom. The Rev. B. T. Craig was tLe lecturer, and Miss Randall, Mr. Randall, and Mrs. Calton were the principal contributors to the musical portion of the entertainment. The room was crowded to excess, and some persons were unable to gain admittance at all. Mr. E. J. Calton was voted to the chair, ani he opened the proceedings of the ceremony by some appropriate remarks. The concert com menced with some excellent songs, of which ' Faith,' ' Hope,' and ' Charity,' by Miss Randall, Mrs. Calton, and Mr. Randall, respectively, were especially adm...

THE DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
TI1E DINNER. The dinner in connection with the ploughing match and show was held at B.-ru's, Globe Hotel, Tort Elliot. Nearly 70 persons sat down to a capital spread, which reflected much credit upon the caterer, not ouly for the quality aud variety of the comestibles, but Air the excellence of the attendance. 1 he paity fell to in right galiaut style, and vriih appetites apparently rendered keener by the fatigues of :he day; but ibe supply was so abundant that although more were present than was anticipated I there was lack of nothing. The chair was occupied by Mr W. Bowman, the President of ihe S^cieiy On his right we noticed Messrs Y. B. Uutchiuioa, A. Bowman, and D. M. Mickie, and on his left Messrs. B P. 1 aurie, E.

SOUTHERN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The annual ploughing ma;ches and thow of entire stock, under the susi l^a of the Sou: hern Agricul tural Society, was b.ld :~-t .Midujeion, ou Wednesday, on Mr. Tucmas Huviitjj*--i section, near ihe tramway. The day was beautifully fijie, and iu ail respect (exc pt that of the known hardness of tile ground and consequent psucity of competing ploughs) the more familiar part of the day's proceedings was a thorough success. Ploughing matches have been more tiioioughly acclimatized, as it were, in the South ilian have shows of stuck, hut uow that llie totk-ty l-as made a fair start, and given a prac tical illustration of the benefits it offers to the peorl-j of the district, we shall expect to sec in future far mo -e active competition for all its prizes. If ihis expectation be not realized, the district will suffer, and its iuhahitauts will have themselves to blame. First of all, in connection with tlio exhibition of Wednesday, we must refer to the show o...
LYSTER'S OPERA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
LYSTEll'S OPERA. It would be uugeuerom if evan a provincial jour lal witheld an acknowledgment of- the obliga tions under which Mr. Lyster has laid tho musical public of this colony by the pioduetion here of Meyerbeer's ' L'Africaine.1' That his enterprise has 1101 been, so waiaiJy supported as it should hava been may be his loss, but it is a discredit to the South Australian public which it will not so easily redeem. Nice-tenths of the playgoers of th-3 colony would probablv never have seen ' L'Africaitii;' in their lives but for Mr. Lyttei's liberality .and *piri». He has produced it ia Adelaide, i:o:wi;hstaiiding all the disadvantages he has labjrcd under there, far better thau it is likely to be rendered by any other ' company in any of the colonies for years, to come.. Even the scenery was brought round from Melbourne at considerable expense, and a beautiful piece of seenie painting indeed is the background of the last scene. We have no intention- to criticise the opara, or eve...

YANKALILLA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
YANKALILLA. A most determined attempt at burglary was made here on Saturday night last, a little before 1 2 o'clock. Some persons broke open the door of the Wissanger schoolroom, and lighting ?» lucifer proceeded to inspect the bed rooms behind, with the intention no doubt of appropriating anything valuable that might turn up. Finding the beds unoccupied, the scoundrels decamped without any booty- The police are using every efiort to discover the parties, but at present without success. Those attempts having lately become frequent, some uneasiness is necessarily felt. It is to be hoped the settlers themselves will use every efiort to put down this unpleasant Btate of things. The weather has been delightfully fine and the crops are daily improving under ite in fluence, though a few showers would to eorne be very acceptable.

THE SOUTHERN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
THE SOUTHERN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The South may at last boast of a ivell organiEed and efficiently oificered Agrscult'.irai Society, The Southern Soniety is now fairly floated, and the niatehea and shov\T held under its auppicea ai Middleton laet Wedne?day have already given it a position from which it may exert inifcieiK-c and dispense material 'ueiiofit to ilio ilsstricr. Viewed as a whole the feathering was a deei^wl succesr, although ?n eom-j iniuGr particulars better results migbt bave beea expected. The paucity of exhibits in iha classes for rams, pigs, and bulls was perhaps incidental to the initiation of such an exhibit Ion, nn-i ne?d not be apprehended for the future. The two or three complaints against the awards of the judges, whether well grounded or not, are what usually happen upon such occasions. It is literally impos sible for judges to avoid treading upon some corns, in the most impartial and just exercise of their responsibilities, and the public gene rally, and u...
WENTWORTH. Wentworth, September 3. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
WENTWORTH. Wcntworth, September 3. We have been favored with 4S hours' in cessant rain, causing our township to be completelv flooded, and in consequence of which a dinner and ball which was to come off in celebration of the opening of Mr. Price's Sheffield llouse, was postponed until the ensuing week. The latest intelligence from the Upper Darling is that the river is falling at Fort Bourke, but that it has risen fifteen feet at Menindie, which will enable the steamers to get up and make one or two trips. The Culgoa was on her way up to Mount Murchison, and the Kennedy is on her way down with the first of the large cargoes of wool- She will laud her wool here, and run up again as fast as possible. The Jolly Miller and Bogan have left for up stream, the Albury starts to morrow morn ing, and the Queen on Wednesday. The Warrego leaves for Blanchetown on Tuesday. The Melbourne snag boat with the New South Wale9 and Victorian commisioners on board, has gone down to examine the river as ...
OUR RAILWAY PROGRESS—No. 2. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
OUR RAILWAY PROGRESS— Xo. 2. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGCS. Sir — I begin this letter by asking whether nothing can be done against the vis inertias opposed to progress, mentioned in my last? Arc we in South Australia, in this year of grace 186G, to accept as satisfactory a system of locomotion between Victor Harbor and Strathalbyn somewhat inferior to that enjoyed by the Romans of Pompeii 2,000 years ago ? And is it beyond the power of scientific ciurineerinff to eive us a railway traversed bv trains at a velocity of from 20 to 30 miles an hour at a practicable cost, and capable of being rendered remunerative to the proprietor with fares and freights approximating to the low charges of Belgium and the United States ? The problem was solved for us upwards of 30 years ago bv an ingenious American engineer who was employed to construct a railway between Charleston in South Carolina and Augusta in Georgia, a distance of 136 miles, with a capital of only .£240,000, or less than .£...
THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, September 6. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 8 September 1866
THE METROPOLIS. , [From our own Corresnondent. I Adelaide, September 6. In the absence of anything like business excitement or commercial activity we hare njiw . the commencement of Parliamen tary strife, and the prospect of a pro longed, wearisome, and bitterly-contested session. The prospects of the Ministry are better than the leaders of the Opposition wish, for the manner and spirit of the hostility of Messrs. Strangways and Reynolds tend to strengthen the Government; and as the session progresses, and Messrs. Santo and Clyde warm to their dirty work, tbe feeling of dislike and distrust of that incurable quartette of place-hunters will grow upon the independent members of the Assem bly. Still there are many elements of danger * to the Government. A hostile motion may be founded upoa the disorganized state of the Crown Lands Department, that made the recent defalcations possible and enabled the J~ party to blame to- keep his misdeeds secret for bo long. Then it is possible the ni...
