They predict that it will not last. * * * They say the proposed new tariff was well received by the House and that the Playford ministry will have a good innings. They say the civil servants are much distressed at their prospect, yet many unemployed would willingly take their places at even a lower rate of pay. They say (and that without a dissenting voice) the Melbourne Liedertafcl's visit to the Jubilee Exhibition was an unqualified success. Out of the 80 voices there are some remarkably good ones in the fourscore. * * * They say the Norwood foot ballers well deserve the premier position for the present season.

(COMMUNICATED) Archbishop Reynolds at Petersburg. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 26 August 1887
(COSIMOXICATED) Archbishop Reynolds at Petersburg. The Archbishop with Father Norton returned to Petersburg on Sunday evening early, and took part in the usual evening devotions at the church of St. Anacletus. The buildiug was crowded to excess to listen to a most instructive and effective sermon given by the Archbishop on the sacrament of confession, and the divine power left to the Catholic Church of forgiving sins. The Archbishop explained that according. to the canons of Holy Church he was laid under a most strict obligation^ to explain as a bishop from time to time the reasons why the Catholic Church and she alone exercises this power of forgiving sins. Christ Himself forgives sins as God and as man, and being the. invisible Head of the church forgives ain through His priests on earth. Just as our gracious Sovereign, continued the Archbishop, acts in every part of her realms through her ministers and every act of theirs is accounted as hers whilst; they officiate in her name, s...

Memorial re Local Court, The following memorial bear ing nearly 200 signatures was forwarded om Monday evening last to Mr. Ward, M.P., for pre sentation to the House of As sembly. To the honorable fhe House of Assembly of South Australia in Parliament Assembled. THE MEMORIAL, OF TFTF. UNDERSIGNED RESIDENTS OF PETERSBURG AND DISTRICT HUMBLY SHowETHthat the state ments made both by the At torney-General and the special Magistrate in reference to Mr. Ward's motion for the establish ment of a Local Court at Peters burg are grossly inaccurate in the following particulars. First,* chat Petersburg has seen its best days, whereas in fact Petersburg is steadily in creasing in size and importance, inasmuch as there is not and has not been for some time an uninhabited house in the town. And notwithstanding the fact that the line to Cockburn has been completed for eightmonths the population has been and is still increasing and has not de creased as suggested by Mr. Edmunds. Secondly. -- The sta...

Correspondence. RAILWAY REFRESHMENT ROOMS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887
Correspondence. RAILWAY KEFR^SHMkUT EOOMS BILL. Sik,-"Whilst giving Mr. J. H. Touchell all just credit for having had the safety of the travelling public keenly at heart when writing the somewhat prolix effusion which appeared in your last number, yet I would ask if his end, viz. the safety of travellers, is really attained by the absence of the properly conducted refreshment rooms at judi cious intervals along the line. Does not the "little dram shop," to quote Mr- Touchell's rather unfair expression, act, to a certain extent, as a safety valve to alcoholic overpressure ? By which I mean that if a. man really means drinking to excess on a journey, and he knows that he will have no opportunity of obtaining wine, beer, or spirits-excepting at very long inter vals-will he not-and it is a fact that he does-provide himself before starting with such a liberal supply of liquour, that the effect will be far more apparent than if there were refreshment rooms at every other station ? For con...

JAIL POETRY [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887
JAIL POETRY The other day a gentleman came across the following lines, written on the slate belongiag to a prisoner now in prison under sentence of penal servitude for the second time, and who has been often convicted before I cannot take my walks abroad, I'm under lock and key; And much the public 1 applaud For all their care of me. Not more than others I deserve, In fact much less than more, Yet I have food whilst others starve, Or beg from door to door. The honest pauper in the street Half naked I behold, While I am clad from head to feet And covered from the cold. Thousands there are who ne'er eaa tell Where they may lay their head, But I've a warm and well aired cell, A bath, good books, good bed, While they are fed on workhouse fare And grudged their scanty food, Three times a day my meals I get, Sufficient, wholesome, good. Then to the British public health, Who all our care relieves, And while they treat us as they do They'll never want for thieves.

Penn, of Coomooroo, was struck by lightning,the fluid passing down through and battering a wall, and out through the floor of the room. The cog wheels of a hand seed sower hanging against the wall were melted, and some harness was also burnt.

Thornton. August 30th Last week we were favored with, splendid rains, about 700 points being registered. This has dose a considerable amount »f good to the crops, some of which are not through the ground yet. It is the desire of the residents that a local court be established in Petersburg, as it would be much more convenient, when business compels them to attend, than travelling the distance to Terowie or Orroroo. We are now having fine weather, the feed and crops are growing | and the farmers rejoicing.
Clippings from the Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 2 September 1887
[Clippings from the dazeUe. An enteiprising reporter, writing up a wreck at sea, stated that no less than four of the crew and passengers bit tlie dust. A sour old bachelor says he always looks under the marriage head for news of the weak. "Do you know the Jacksons," asked a lady of a young man who lived in the neighbourhood. "No, I am not per sonally acquainted with all the members of the family,''he replied: "but I always speak to the dog at the front gate as I go past. A little boy being asked in Sunday school " What is the chief end of man?" replied, " The end what's got the head on." Being remonstrated with for wearing a bustle, a girl silenced her critic by saying-" "Well, we girls, like everybody else, must have something to fall back on." " Is that dog ferocious?" said a traveller.'-No, he ain't ferocious,but he's the darndest dog ter bite ever you seed." It only tak«s about two seconds to get up a duel.

Angust 27th Although reports were flowing in from all parts of the colony of abundant i falls of rain and the advanced state of* the crops, this part somehow seemed to hav0' been neglected of late by old Jupiter Pluvius, for tha; crops about here were not only very backward, for this tirae of the year, but were showing signs of suffering from want of moisture, in fact some of the farmers were al ready taking a gloomy view of the coming harvest. This state of things is now altered, for on Thursday morn ing it commenced raining, and up to j the present (9 a.m. Saturdays about | one and thfee-quartep inches have beaa | registered, ' ' '' "?

Inhibition of Novelties, IN AID OF PETERSBUBG CHURCH OF ENGLAND BUILDING FUND. For soihte time past thfe ladies con^ hected with St. Peter's Church have been busily engaged in collecting curios trith which to form an exhibition, and a thorough canvass of the district, has been taken with a view of unearthing any objects of interest that might be lying hidden away. With our limited population the project seemed to many an ambitions one, and certainly few were prepared for the scene that met their eyes in the Institute Hall on Mon day last when Dr. Kennion, the Lord Bishop of Adelaide, in a few appro priate words declared the exhibition open. The hall, itself, was tastefully decorated with flowers and festooned with flags, kindly lent for the occasion, and in the centre of the building a fountain fcad been erected. The exhibits were ranged along the two sides of the hall, the stage end being turned into a re freshment stall, the prominent feature of which appeared to be a handsome Wed...
