THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, 27th September. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 September 1866
THE METROPOLIS. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, 27th September. I may as well discontinue speaking of business as there is little or none to refer to. It is to be hoped that the approaching wool season, the fine rains, the improvement of affairs at home, and the realization of the belief that we have seen the worst, will make matters more brisk, and that tbe cloud that hangs over our commercial life will pass away. In general business little is doing ; in wines nothing. In breadstuffs I have scarcely any thing to report. One or two small sales have been made at 4s. lOd. Flour is very dull at £13 to £14 ; bran, 1«. 5d. ; pollard . Is. lOd. to Is. ll^d. Hay is steadier tban might have been expected, the quotations being best wheaten, £7 ; good mixed, £6 ; good wild oaten, £5. Cape barley, 6s. ; English do, 6s. 6d. to 7s.

MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 September 1866
MEADOWS. The Kangarilla Wesleyan Sabbath School anniversary services were held on Sundaj and Monday, the 16th and 17th. On Sunday sermons were preached by the Rev. J. Allen, Wesleyan minister, and on Monday there was a tea and public meeting, which were nume rously attended. The Rev. J. Maughan delivered a lecture here tbe other day on the ' Testimony of th« Rocks to tbe Troth of the Bible.' The fefe ture was rery interesting and instroetite, bang aided in its effect by a series of «Hs* wiring views, which called forth the admirt tion of both adults and juveniles. There have been iome severe frosts fare lately. The potatoes have snSeied consider ably, and some of the cered crops ate also looking bad. ' ? There was a considerable amotmt of star— or rather moon — gazing on Monday night, the total eclipse of the moon having' lured many to%this lofty employment. The memorial to the House for the main line through to tbe Goolwa is in coarse of signature, and vill bo doubt soon be handed ...
FINNISS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 29 September 1866
FINNISS VALE. The weather has been very pleasant and cool, and soire heavy rain has fallen which has freshened up the crops and the gardens. An accident happened on Saturday evening to a man named Chapman, by which he broke his leg. It seems that the man and some others were intoxicated, and began to quarrel ; a scuffle ensued, in which the accident oc curred.- This happened at the house of a woman named More, who has a wine license, and it is said such drunken 'scenes are fre quent at the house. A police station at Glen Burn is much wanted. Messrs. Pascoe and Cossens have sent in their report on the Wheal Coglin Mine, and it seems to be a very satisfactory one. That the mine is looking well, there is no doubt, indeed it never looked better, There are some hundreds of tons of ore that if dressed by machinery would pay well, but there seems no hope at present of this desirable end being attained. While the bickering continues among the shareholders the mine cannot prosper. The weekly...

. THE PRUSSIAN NEEDLE-GUN. The needle-gun, saV9 Galignani, resprobles »n ordinary muskfi in size and weight, thetliiif differ ence being in the absence of the lock, li load* at the b-eech, although the stock is net thrown back as in the ordinary fin arms of that cIbes.

to T:ir. editor of the southern afgcs. Sir — The above extract from the speech of ih2 Commissioner of Public Works, on the oc casion of the announcement of the Ministerial programme on the 2Sth ultimo, would apnear to show that the Government now really in tend to entertain the question of a general eystem of railways for the whole province — - in other words, that the Government are really thinking seriously of doing for South Australia what the Belgian Government boldly and judiciously did for their country in the infancy of railway enterprise — a question that no South Australian Ministry would have shrunk frcon ten rears ago, if the people had been ripe for self-government, and capable of elect ing for their representatives statesmen who would not have permitted weak, and compara tive incapable, ministers to usurp the supreme power, as has unfortunately too frequently been the case from the eomnieneiinent of t: responsible government ' up to the present time ; but the ideas of G...
