THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COORONG. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 6 October 1866

THE DEVELOPMENT OP THE COOROXG. We hare already directed public attention to the vast importance of opening the Coorong for steam navigation, and now the lion- H. B. T. Straxgways has carried a resolution in the Assembly for an immediate survey of the stream to be made, with the view of ascer taining how* far it may be rendered navigable for steamers of a draught of water not exceed ing two feet six inches. Mr. Stuaxgways does not contemplate an immediate complete survey which would determine the cost and other contingencies of the undertaking, hut simply a preliminary examination. We believe the Government would not have opposed a more extended survey, but, at all events, what was asked for is granted. Upon the report which will result from the examina tion now to be made will of course depend in a great measure the future action to be taken with reference to the Coorong. If a hasty or insufficient consideration of the advantages which may be secured, or of the means of securing th...

The improved postal arrangements already in operation will enable us to distribute the copies much more expeditiously than we have been able to hitherto ; and we j trust residents of the South generally I will appreciate the efforts we are mak- j ing to anticipate the issues of the Ade laide Press, and place them in pos session of the news at the earliest moment. We have determined to charge One Penny for each copy of our Extraordinarics, less with a view to make them repay their cost than to remove any cause of complaint as to their distribution. Formerly we issued them gratuitously, and some persons who did not happen to re ceive a copy thought themselves aggrieved.

Assembly on the 5th inst. : — ?* Sir — I have the honor to report my arrival this afternoon from the eastward at this out station, 50 miles north of Mount Margaret. Had I at all anticipated the time and trouble this eastward trip would cost me I should probably have left the task to other and abler hands, but now the work is over I do not be grudge the price paid for the information obtained, which I hope may in some way or other be useful. I can at present give you but an outline of my proceedings, leaving a fuller report till my return to Adelaide. In directing my course to tbe eastward I had two objects in view ; first, to fix the northern limit of Lake Eyre ; secondly to test the correctness of an impression strongly made on my mind that the river of wJiicb a black had shown Mr. Jarvis a small portion, was the Barcoo,...

THE METROPOLIS. Adelaide, October 4. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 6 October 1866

THE METROPOLIS. i From out own Corresnondent.1 Adelaide, October 4. oince my last we have bad showers nearly every night, and it is still raining. As far as the season is concerned we have now nothing to wish for, though I do not think the extreme hopes of an abundant harvest we hear continually expressed will be fully realized ?' for all the rain we can get will not fertilize exhausted lands. A large proportion of our farms will have to be rested, and left in grass to recover heart, after 25 years of wheat cronpinc and Ridlev's machine. Wheat still goes downward — the figure to-day being 4s. 9d. to 4s. lOd. ; flour, .£13 to £14. Hay is also falling, and is sold at the following prices : — Best whealen, £6 per ton j good mixed, £5 10s. per tonj good wild oaten, £5 per ton. Today is the dreaded 4th, when each merchant and auctioneer rises with heavy forbodings of Shrivogals, with the mournful prospect of windings up and dividends of 5s.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 6 October 1866

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTHERN. ADGL'S. Sir — X take for my text upon the present occasion , the above extract from the address of Mr. Henry Walter Parker to the electors of the Legislative Council, not because I suppose that there is any very great danger af that gentleman being elected, or ihat if elected he would, generally speaking, be much in ferior to the average of the honorables who at present constitute our House of. Lords, but because Mr. Parker's^eentiments upon the points above referred to are part of a wide-spread popular delusion very generally shared by the shortsighted and unreflecting portion of mankind, and thosd who have not taken the trouble to investigate the question in all its bear ings, and to go thoroughly to the root of the matter. Mr. John Bull, who according to the old song ' Was a bumpkin born and bred, In a clod-hopping village in Glo'stershire,' is, in the present day, as was aptly remarked by Napoleon, essentially a shopkeeper, and instinctively 1 wish...

LOCAL NEWS. CLARENDON. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 6 October 1866

LOCAL NEWS. CLARENDON. The weather during the past month has been all that could be desired by the agricul turist — bright sunshine, with occasional showers. But still the blight in the wheat crop advances in its destructive work, and it is much feared, that the crops will be even a greater failure than they have been for the past six years. Other products are iu a nourishing condition, and bid fair for a good yield. The orchard gardens and vineyards look splendid, and if the lats frosts keep off we shall have a good vintage to all appearance. Meetings have been held here to address the Road Board on the further improvement of the main Bull's Creek Road to the Goolwa ; and it is to be sincerely hoped thai the Board will take action in the matter, for small farmers require work. The election for the Legislative Council was a most spirited affair in this locality. The various committees made great exertions, and although they started late in the da3r, yet they were successful, for the...
