OUR LAND SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 September 1866
OUR LAND SYSTEM, We hope the present session will not be allowed to pass without a decided effort being made to secure an amendment of our land system. The positive refusal of the Govern ment to entertain the request of the Bremer farmers, whose koldings abut on one portion of tbe waste Murray Scrubs, givesany independent member a fair opportunity to initiate somcaction that will force the subject upon tbe attention of Parliament. Every year that is allowed to lapse without this being done increases the difficulty of dealing satisfactorily with the question, and unnecessarily impoverishes the community by discouraging agricultural settlement, and keeping in abeyance tbe full benefit which should he derived from our landed estates. We have always regarded tbe Crown lands of the colony as an estate held upon trust by the Legislature, nominally in the interests of the Crown, but actually for the benefit of the people. And we are altogether unable to understand why any prin ciples shoul...

WENTWORTH. September 23. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 September 1866
WENTWORTH. [From our owu Correspondent.] September 23. The weather during the week has been very fine, but heavy rains have been falling to-dav, and there is prospect of their continuance. Business is rather dull. Our town appears to derive great benefit from the telegraphic communication noxv opened between South Australia and here, the possession of such a rapid means of cosimuniea tion being of immense advantage to commercial men. But I think the new brick buildings should be progressing instead of standing still. A few gentlemen of this place having pur chased a racing gig, built ia Melbourne, made their trial trip the other day, and she appears to answer their expectations. The trip was down the Murray four miles, the time occu pied being 27 minutes; returning, against stream, 25 minutes. She was launched with all due hon&-, and christened the Lurline by the daughter of one of our leading inhabitants. I hope some other gentlemen may he induced to purchase another boat t...

THE DARLING. September 17. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 September 1866
THE DARLING. IFrom our own Correspondent] September 17. It is a long time since the Darling per mitted the arrival of so many steamers as there has been this last week or so. Unfortunately since the big flood the rises in the river have been so few and small that we almost despaired of ever seeing a steamer in the upper river again. Those few boats which did try to push up were stuck in the river for many months, and have only now been released and gone down again. The drought and stoppage cf the navigation has been sorely felt on the Darling, as it was almost impossible to cart supplies up from WentwoWh from want of feed for the cattle employed; consequently many of the stations have been quite out of stores, &c, for months past. The arrival of so many steamers will enable them to fill up, and take on hands required, which hitherto they have been unable to do for the want of rations to feed them. The shearing will now be commenced on all the stations, and will no doubt be a...
