THE MEN BEFORE THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 September 1866

THE MEN BEFORE THE COUNTRY. On Wednesday next the electors of the pro vince will have to select five men out of twelve as their representatives iu the Legislative Council for probably the next twelve years. Unfortunately the list of candidates is not a very encouraging one. It embraces some men who are, in our opinion, altogether unfit for the position they seek. This indeed generally happens, but ou this occasion the proportion of really eligible men is smaller than usual, and the electors will consequently have greater difficulty in making a wise selection. Some of the candidates too are almost totally unknown as public men, and others have not con descended, either by word of mouth or by written addresses, to enlighten the constitu ency on the subject of their opinions. Under all these circumstances, it becomes the duty cf an independent press to speak out plainly and fearlessly on the relative merits of the candi dates. The candidates are Messrs. J. T. Bagot, Arthur Hardy, T. Ho...

SOUTH EASTERN DEVELOPMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 September 1866

SOUTH EASTERN DEVELOPMENT. Now, while a Committee of the House of Assembly is engaged in the consideration of the best means of developing the resources of the rich South-Eastern District of this colony, and of uniting it inseparably to us rather than permitting it to attach itself as inseparably to Victoria, is manifestly the time for urging upon the attention of the public, of the Govern ment, and of the Committee itself, whatever, in the opinion of those who are acquainted with the subject and are interested in it, may be the best means of accomplishing the object in view. We shall therefore ofter no apology for recurring so soon to a question upon which we wrote in our last issue. South Australia is now on the brink of regaining or of losing for ever a rich and substantial prize. The apathy and want of enterprise which has characterised South Australian legislation in the past has resulted in our having now to make an effort to win back what we ought never to have lost. Like the...

LOCAL NEWS. FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 September 1866

LOCAL JSTEWS. FINNISS VALE. The lafe dry weather has had an evil in fluence upon the crops, especially the late sown ones, but on Saturday tbe weather changed, and on Sunday and Monday some very heavy showers of rain fell, and the wheat looks very jnnch the l»etrer for it. The general complaint is that the crops are su weedy. I feel sure that never before in this district were die weeds so troublesome, and on fallow land the weeds are worse, the clack- j weed being predominant, and large patches of - wheat have been completely destroyed by this j nest, which has scarcely been seen here be- I fore. However, the early sown crops are j pretty free from weeds, and stro looking well, i It is a very dull j rosj-eci for fanners at present, j with low prices and the prospect of light crops. . I Caj triin Pascoe and otiier gentleman have j been paying a visit of inspection to the WUcal ! Coglin Mines, the directors not beiiur satisfied j with tbe works done.

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, 20th September. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 September 1866

THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent! Adelaide, 20th Septsmber. bince my last we have been favored with some seasonable rains, and the only thing to regret is that the were not. more plentiful. However, they have done a great deal of good, and will keep the crops going for some time longer. Some of the rank hay crops near Ade laide have been laid by the strong wind accom panying- the wet. Green hay is coming into luwu iicci-f auu ua^v ia laiuug. £t is most probable that next season will be a cheap year altogether. The following are the latest quotations: — Flour, .£13 to .£14 ; wheat, 5s. 6d., and nothing doing in either. Hay, best wheaten, £7 ; good mixed do., .£6 ; good wild oaten, £5. In general business the same story — nothing doing. There have been several small insol- . vencies this week, and others of the same *l class will in all probability soon follow. The Banks relax none of their stringency, and whoever can ride over these difficult times must be indeed in a soun...

THE DARLING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 22 September 1866

THE DARLING A correspondent writing- from Toorale, Bourke, Darling River, under date August 31, says : — ' I write a hurried line to let you know that, though the river had fallen about j four feet in 1.0 days, 30 hours', rain that has just fallen, and which does not yet appear to j be over, has caused it to commence rising again, and as it comes from the eastward it will in all probability affect the sources of the j river, and there can be no risk whatever to j steamers immediately pushing up. There are thousands of bales of wool now on the bank of the river above Menindie awaiting ship ment. There is also a great dearth of stores all the way to Bourke ; ample room for several cargoes, which could not fail to realize large profits. The rain now failing will make this one of the best seasons ever known here. Another correspondent under date Menin die, Sept. 5, writes : — ' The Culgoa and barge, fully ladea, is within a few miles of ibis on her way down. The $)arling is again fallnu...
