NEW SOUTH WALES. ROBBERY OF THE WALGETT MAIL BY BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
NEW SOUTH WALES. ROBBERY OF THE WALGETT MAIL BT BUSHRANGERS. For a second time within a period of three years the Sydney down mail has been stuck up by armed men within a short distance of this place. Upon the first occasion, the robbers fol lowed the mail from Brewarina, but failing to secure an eligible opportunity to rob it between that township and this place (principally through the information imparted to the mail men), they watched the Walgett office until the mail again departed for Wee Waa, and then fulfilled their intention by stopping the mail man and appropriating the contents of the mail. An effort was made to apprehend them by a party led by Mr. Smith, P.M., of Nar rabri, but it failed, and the perpetrators of the offence ultimately escaped the law. Singular to relate, the present robbery has been com mitted scarcely a stone's throw from the scene of the former outrage, and under similar circumstances ; and from the nonchalance displayed by the delinquents in the per f...
THE FIRE AT MENINGIE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
THE FIRE AT MENINGIE. TO THE EDITOR Sir — I would be very much obliged to you if you can find room for these few lines in your open column. A fire broke out here on January 26, between 6 and 8 o'clock in the evening, which was supposed to have caught through a person using ignitable wadding, and I see that they try to bring a person by the name of Wm. Littlewood in for it, because that person was out shooting that day. But I can assure them that I use nothing but leather wadding, and I only fired once that day, between 11 and 12, and that was not within a mile of that place, and if any of the settlers request to know where that was, let them apply to me. There have been other foul reports in this place, and so I requst the Meningie correspondent please put it under this. I am, Sir, &c., WM, L.ITTLEWOOD.

MEETING AT TANUNDA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 8 February 1868
MEETING AT TANUNDA. A meeting of farmers washeld at the Tanunda Hotel, Tanunda, on Monday, Februarys. About half-past 3 o'clock nearly 300 farmers and others interested had assembled, and Mr. E. Basedow, J.P., was voted to the chair. The Chairman read the advertisement call ing the meeting. He regretted the necessity for this gathering, but expressed a hope that it would be of some practical use ; he was afraid the Government was not much inclined to give assistance. He called upon Mr. Jacobs, of Gnadenfrei, who proposed— ' That in the opinion of this meeting, consider ing the failure of the crops, it will be an act of justice and public policy for the Government to supply those farmers with seed who cannot possibly sow their land again without such assistance ; the Government taking their note of hand for repayment in two years.' Seconded by Mr. HOMETEE. A long debate ensued on this, in which many farmers took part, and explained the very bad condition of their crops ; all agreeing...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Referring to tbe red rust in South Australia, the Fremantte Herald says : — ' The effect of this information here was, as might have been anticipated, a corresponding rise in the price of wheat and flour, the former going up to 5s. and 5s. 6d. per busheL and the latter from £13 to £15 per ton. The small advance in the price of .flour, is no doubt attributable to the large stocks now on hand, and as soon as they are somewhat reduced a farther advance may con fidently be reckoned upon, especially as it is now pretty certain that our own harvest will not return such an abundant yield as was anti cipated. In some of the country districts flour is now quoted at £20 per ton, but we don't think this price can be maintained. A feeling of uncertainty exists as to the future condition of the market, and buyers and- sellers are fencing to gain time for further information.' Freights are high and shipping scarce.
COLONIAL WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868
COLONIAL WOOL SALES. The fourth series of colonial wool sales of the year, which commenced the 14th November, terminated on the 13th instant. The fol lowing is from the circular of Mr. Helmuth Schwartze:-- ' .They comprised 107,404 bales— namely, 22,251 Sydney. 20,056 Victoria, 1.901 Tasmania, 14,118 New Zealand, 3,328 South Australia, 115 Swan Kiver, and 45^635 Cape of Good Hope. There has been iio,recovery from the long stag nation in the export woollen trade, while the condition of the home departments has been, during the last few months, still further preju diced by the consequences of a deficient harvest, and -with the prevalence to a great extent of similar depressing influences in many parts of the continent' a depreciation in the valxe of wool, more or less severe, in the face of so ample a supply, was inevitable. The early sales of the series were very mode rately attended, the absence of Continental buyers, in a measure attributable to the circum stance of the Antwerp and...
