COMMERCIAL. Southern Argus Office, Friday Evening, September 14, 1866. In the wheat market there is really nothing to re port this week, we not having heard of any transac tions of consequence. Hay is in rather less demand at present, owing to the improvement in pasture lands, and we have no doubt must coine down in price. Potatoes are scarce, and wouldfiud a ready market.

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, September 13. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 September 1866
THE METROPOLIS. fFrom our own Correspondent.! Adelaide, September 13. The last mail, though assuring us that the bad times are likely to pass away, and that in all probability commerce will not be deranged by a European war, has not produced any imme diate effect upon business. There are a few small insolvencies each week of no importance except as an iadication of dull times. Small shopkeepers, whose expenses exceed their pro fits, go suddenly to the wall when their custo mers, themselves feeling the hard times, con tract tiseir usual personal expenditure, and when merchants, wishing to know their real position, demand a settlement of accounts with that class of traders. Then commission agents and brokers, the greater number of whom fail every five years, or oftener^ are brought to a 6peedy halt when nobody buys except from hand to mouth. There is no large failure ex pected just no ip, though the action of the Banks, if persisted in, will necessarily close the commercial career of ...
THE SOUTH-EASTERN MAIL ROUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 September 1866
THE SOUTH-EASTERN MAIL ROUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SODTHEHKAHOOH. - Sir — Having a leisure hour, I take up my pen to write upon a subject deeply interesting to all resi dents in this the south-eastern portion of the colony, and also highly important, to the mercantile interest in Adelaide. The subject is the easy and rapid. transit of mails aud passengers to and from that large aud important district, Mount Gambier. I think all will admit that this subject Bhould b* fully discussed, in order that the most desirable results may be arrived at. My idea is that the mails and passengers may bs landed by a light-draught steamer at Salt Creek, on the Coorong, cheaper, quicker, and much more comfortably, than by any other route or mode of transit Salt Creek is distant from the Goolwa about 90 miles, so that a steamer could do the dis tance in ten- hours easily; add. six hoars from Adelaide to Goolva, and' two for detention for transhipment of mails, and passengers, and it would leave Salt C...
THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 September 1866
THE ENGLISH MAIL. THEbrarichgteamer, withthe July Englisbmails and telegraphic dates to August 8th, arrived at Glenelg on Sunday after noon, and we hastened to publish our promised Extraordinary, with a resume of the intelligence. Early on Monday morning a large number of copies were in circulation. Apart from the events transpiring on the continent, the news from England is this month more than ordi narily exciting. The successful laying of the Atlantic cable and the actual exchange of telegraphic messages between the two countries is of peculiar interest, because it will practi cally determine the feasibility of long oceanic t-ubmarine lines elsewhere. So much having been accomplished oa the Atlantic, we may fairly hope that ere long we shall bave a .complete chain of telegraphic communication between Australia and England. la one re spect nt all events we are beating the ancients, _ whatever our respected corieapbndent Vis Viva ~ may say to the contrary. As might have been expect...

FOREIGN. THE WAR IX GERMANY. Momentous events have occurred in Germany since the last news. Penetrating Bohemia in three columns, the Prussians have won a succession of victories, aud continued their advance to the gates of Vienna, where | their triumphant course has been suspended by an ] armistice, which has just been agreed upon through »i ? ~^.-j\ nfl'..»a nt t\\v Kmnemr of the French. ' The nairativo of these events involves many details of interest. Oh the 24-h June, the Prussians entered Bohemia, advancing without encountering any serious resis tance till the 27ib, when a battle took placa. On that day the fifth army corps, commanded by General von Stt-inmetz, fell in with the Austrians at Nochod, on the Silesian frontier, 25 miles west of Gla-z. This corps had entered Bohemia by way of Braueiau aud Reinerz, with orders to move on to the fortress of Josephstadt by the pass of Nachod. Both sides suf ftred considerable josses, aua at uie ciose or me oay each maintained its prev...

THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT AND GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 September 1866
THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT AND GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. TO.T8$ EDITOB OF THE SOUTHERN ABODS.. Sir— It has juat come to my knowledge that the Government are calling for tenders for certain build ings at Port Elliot; and I was not a little surprised that there is a clause in the specification binding the contractor to use for the- roofing and S wring only slate and flagging from the Delabole Quarries at WUlunga. It is well known there are several quar ries at Willunea that oan and have produced better material tbau that produced by tbe Delabole felate Quarries, and which have been in working several years. The Delabole Slate Quarries were only opened last yearj principally by some builders in Adelaide, who formed themselves into a Company under the title of the 'Delabole Slate Quarry Company, Limited,' -with the present Commissioner of Public Works as Chairman of the Directors. The quantity of slate and flagging they have hitherto sent from their quarry has been very trifling in compari...

ENGLISH MISCELLANEA. A few days a go as some workmen in the employ of the contractor lor Sewer works were digging -in the roadway opposite Pluuipstead Church, at a depth of only 18 inches from the surface, they found two human skeletons, which had evidently been interred for many years. The report of the National L'feboat Institution has just been issued. The society has now under its charge nearly 200 lifeboats, and every year it is instrumental iu saving between 700 and 800 lives from shipwreck. To carry on successfully the use ful and philanhropic labors of the society a large permanent income is indispensable, aud there are tew, if any, scc:eties which make a better claim upon the liberality of Englishmen. Some thieves broke into St. Matthew's Church, Leeds, the other night, expecting to find plate, i»ext day being sacrament Sunday. They were dis appointed iu this, hut thev drank a bottle of sacra mental wine, and left behind them the fallowing note : — ' D^ar Sir — We are sorry...
