MISS ADELAIDE E. TO HON T. R. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

MISS ADELAIDE E. TO HOS. T. B. Unkind to thee ! ah, never, I've known thee far too long. John Clark he shall not sever The cords that bind so strong. I loved thee in thy weakness, I loved thee in thy might ; . I loved with humble meekness, I'll stick to thee— Good night !: FROM THE SAME TO HON. P. 8. Santo, $anto, I must doubt thee, Thou art not the proper 'cheese,' Therefore! will do without the* — Go away ; go quickly please. Time was when I thought I loved thee, When thou wert a modest boy ; But I fear thou'st got above me, So, be off I — I wish thee joy. anas x. a. tal^ to l. g. ; When Glyde the sprightly stoops to folly, Forgetting her he's jpl^gei to Tove, And dances up and down so jolly, - Tis right that he should get a shove.

' '' ?:? ? ' ? -THE - V' ? -;' ' : ';:: SATUBDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1868. THE WHEAT CO 100KSI03SL This Commission continues its sittings, and has amassed a large quantity Of evidence^ valuable principally as embo dying the experience of practical fanners and of observant men who have tested and corrected' their theories by years; of watchful experiment. The evidence will therefore, when published, be found to consist of facts, not mere fancies. We jnay here repeat the remarks . we made last week, and strengthened by subsequent engjury, namely— ^that the shrivelled wheafcr-if not of the wry worst, is per fectly reliable for seed. ' Scores of far mers have tried it in former seasons, and have obtained from it both clean crops, and crops of good yield. Many of our best known agriculturists intend this next season to sow the Bhrivelled grain, some of :them notwithstanding they have good grain as well. The good grain sells best at the mill ; the inferior does just as well for seedy and iheref...

THE FARMERS AND THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

THE FARMERS AND THE GOVERNMENT. QnThursday, February 13, a deputation of farmers from the Northern District of the province, accompanied by. halfa dozen M.P's., waited upon the Gpvern ment to lay before them the case of the distressed agriculturists, and to solicit the assistance . of the State in the hour of need. The deputation was introduced by the Hon. G. S. Kingston, Speaker of the House of Assembly, and all the members of $he Ministry, with the exception of the Attorney-General, were present. The proceedings were, therefore, of more than ordinary interest, especially as embody ing the views of ^e Executive in connec tion with the late, disastrous visitation of red rust. A condensed report of what took place at the interview will be found another, column ; and twb shall here avai^ ourselves of the opportunity to make a few remarks on the general, question. We believe iihat the average yield of wheat, over the whole colony will be much better than is expected by many who, having...

CANDIDATES WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

CANDIDATES WANTED. Are legislative honors at a discount, or can aspiring candidates not get the Bteam up until the present Parliament is pro perly dissolved ? We ask these questions because of the difficulty which some of the districts appear . to have in rinding suitable men to represent them. Sere are electors . meeting together . to select proper gentlemen to answer for them in the great Council of the nation, and such gentlemen cannot be found. Spirits are called from the vasty deep, but they; won't come. Likely men in various parts of the colony are being written to some of them from half-a-dozen constitu encies— but they are coy and reserved. And yet, from r^, we near, there are candidates sufficient for the whole dis tricts, but the candidates and the con stituencies cannot yet be brought together'.' The new men are becomingly modest, and want pressing. Like a joung lady who is asked to sing, and who would like to sing jri a private party, but who wishes to be urged with gent...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BONDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BONDS. We have already informed our readers of the sale of our bonds in London at and above £107 3s. per cent. We understand that for some months past the Treasurer has been urging the Agent General to offer our securities to compe tition, even though they might brine something less than they did when sold through brokers. Indeed, Mr. Reynolds hinted at this in his financial speech in July last. This has at length been done, and the result has been very satisfactory. Our Victorian neighbors sold their bonds through the Banks, who quickly pocketed the premium, and charged a commission of one per cent, for the transaction. Mr. Dutton, however, has managed better, and the colony reaps the whole profit of the sale. It is of great importance to us to have our bonds in the London market, and quoted like those of our neighbors ; it will do some thing to bring and keep South Australia before the eyes of the commercial world. They who hold our bonds will have an interest in ...

OUR RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 15 February 1868

OUR RAILWAYS. Throughout the history of bur railway system there has scarcely, if ever, been a time when the bullock-dray and the horse-team have not competed in goods traffic with the locomotive. There have almost always been storekeepers arid mer chants who preferred the sure and safe, though slower, method of transit, as, en tailing less trouble to themselves, and answering the purpose equally well, while the cost was as light or lighter.; and at the same time there have seldom been wanting teamsters ready and willing to. cart at railway prices. Of late, however, this has been more conspicuous than ever, and the Port at times presents quite a lively appearance with the numerous drays, not only from Adelaide, but from Gawler, Kapunda, and along that line of country. We think it is very important this fact should be thoroughly known, and the conclusions to which it points fully considered. It would be well, indeed- it iB incumbent upon the Government, to ascertain what proportion o...

FOREIGN NEWS. There have been highly exciting de bates in the French Chamber on the Roman question. On the 4th the Minister of Foreign Affairs made a state ment as to the Imperial policy on the Roman question, which was ambiguous as to the future. The telling and incisive speech of ML Thiers, who followed, and the temper of the assembly, induced Napoleon III. to reveal more of his mind. Next day M. Rouher, Minister of State, appeared in the tribune, and produced a tremendous sensation by a violent attack on Italy, and a de claration that France would in any and every case protect the integrity of the temporal power of the Pope, that Italy should never have Rome for a capital, and that by the word Rome he included the entire of the States of the Church. Mgr. Dupanloup, who was in the gallery, was so delighted that he vehemently cheered M. Rouher's speech, and the Chamber ratified the statement of the Minister by the overwhelming majority of 237 to 17. This ha* proved a death blow to ...
