AGRICULTURAL DISTRESS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

AGEICULTURAL DISTRESS. TO THE EDETOB. Sir — Hoping that my rough way of address ing you may be of good to the poor farmers, I think an estimate of ' the distress should be taken in each district, and then let those who have wheat give, as I willingly will give, -one ?r two sacks of wheat — say four or eight bushels of wheat each, according to circum itances, gratis. The idea of people borrowing from Government who caa afford otherwise is so much like the squatters that I should be ashamed of it. If the Government render assistance to the farmers at 6 per cent:, and they have no crop next year, where is the borrowed money to come from ? Bear in mind, Sir, we have not cheap land like the squatters, and can ill afford to pay land taxes. ' -? - IanvSiis &c, ? ??? - ? - '*.?.' A POOB FARMER,

THE ROSEWORTHY FENCING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

THE BOSEWORTHY FENCING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— I have 'not heard that the Government - hove called for tenders for the supply of posts for the Bosewprthy and Forresters railway, but -it is rumored that iron posts are sent for from England for the above purpose. Can ibis be 1 +nw»? Tf it Ir so. in there anv reason for it?— why should it be? We have wood nearly as durable as iron, and plenty of it; men capable of producing posts exactly suitable for the pur pose from it, and willing and anxious to do so. There are many farmers this year, who would like to find a market for their timber, and I have goodxeason to believe that many of them, as well as many- others, have been anxiously looking for the call for tenders for the same, and are yet expecting to see it. I do think Bending to England for iron posts for works of this sort is preposterous and crueL : One is almost led to say hard things, thinking such to be a fact, and. I should not be surprised if persons were to think hard, and spe...

BLACKS, EACCA, AND BIRDS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

BLACKS, '&AOCA, AND BIRDS. ' « TO THE EDITOR. jSir — My attention has been called to a state ment made by your Meningie correspondent, to the effect that the natives use tobacco juice to keep the flies off the game which they kill. Now, I cannot, of course, say that ike blanks atjMeningie are' positively not addicted - lo this practice, as that township is some U5 miles from : here, but I will say that your correspondent's statement is extremely improbable. I have lived amongst these blacks for the last ten years and never found them guilty of such a duty trick. Indeed I can .say* with confidence, that the natives around- this station never do : anything of the -kind. In the majority of-cases the blacks bring the birds to the buyers of iiheni before the entrails ^are taken out I hare known the natives askfor pepper and salt to prevent game from putrefying, but I am sure that tobacco is such a precious article with them and so scarce that they would never use it.

VICTORIA. February 11, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

VICTORIA. [From our Melbourne Correspondent.] February 1L 1868. Our second batch of elections has resulted ad much in favor of the Government as they could expect. Two half-and-half men have been sent about their business, and two orthodox sup porters have been put in their place. The rest of the returns leave things as they were. The great struggle -will be comine off next -week, when the principal towns will be contested, and in the more important places where educated people are found in large numbers the Opposition will carry their men. The. mail, it appears from our telegrams, will bring us the opinions of the 'English press,' which are adverse to the Govern ment, and to Bis Excellency's coarse of dealing with our crisis. This will of course influence the remaining -'elections to some little extent. Still the Constitutional party in the new As sembly have an up-hill fight before them.
